    “Symptoms of periodontitis and antibody responses to Porphyromonas gingivalis in juvenile idiopathic arthritis”

    “Conclusions
    Children with CCP-positive JIA have higher antibody titers to P. gingivalis and more symptoms of poor oral health, supporting a possible role for periodontitis in the etiology of CCP-positive JIA.”

    Yes, they have been looking at it for RA for years now. It is encouraging they are now studying it in children, don’t you think? Must mean they believe in it.
