Introduction/objectives: Thiols are crucial anti-oxidant agents that contain a sulfhydryl group; they play an important role in defence against reactive oxygen species. We aimed to determine the thiol/disulphide homeostasis in rheumatoid arthritis ( RA) patients in conjunction with its association with disease activity, preclinical atherosclerosis, and other disease-related indices.
