    A new study has been published in Journal Science Translational Medicine in which the authors report that they have identified a previously unnamed bacteria that can reside in the mouth, gut and lungs of 20% of Rheumatoid arthritis patients (and not healthy controls) that generates the autoantibodies that trigger RA. The bacteria has been identified from the genus named, Subdoligranulum, and they have dubbed this newly discovered strain, Subdoligranulum didolesgii.

    Clonal IgA and IgG autoantibodies from individuals at risk for rheumatoid arthritis identify an arthritogenic strain of Subdoligranulum
