Kristína Macáková is addressing the delayed diagnosis issue in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) by focusing on the key process of citrullination, a crucial point in the production of disease-associated auto-antibodies. In this project, Macáková explores the correlation between markers of neutrophil activation and RA in genetically predisposed individuals, proposing a potential preventive strategy by blocking or cleaving neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs).
