Serum immunoglobulin levels represent a state of equilibrium between catabolism and synthesis in normal conditions and the amount of immunoglobulins appears to be related to may factors, such as environment, antigenic stimuli and genetic regulation of protein synthesis. Several disease states interfere with regulation of serum immunoglobulin levels through environmental or metabolic factors. Hypergammaglobulinaemia in rheumatoid arthritis has been a frequent reported finding. Although the cause and significance of immunoglobulins in rheumatoid arthritis is not known exactly, some immunologic process has been thought to play an important role. The present study was undertaken to estimate serum levels of IgG, IgA and IgM in seronegative and seropositive cases of rheumatoid arthritis.
