Importantly, the majority of the genetic risk factors are identified in ACPA-positive RA. It is suggested that ACPA-positive and ACPA-negative RA have dissimilar genetic risk factors but the heritability of both subgroups is similar (66% and 68%, respectively) [2]. This implies that the majority of genetic risk factors for ACPA-negative RA are as yet unidentified. Moreover, in ACPA-positive RA, the known risk factors do not explain the total genetic contribution to RA, suggesting that other genetic factors play a role as well.
