* Iron and rheumatoid arthritis. Day-to-day variation in iron levels is lower in the elderly than in the younger population. Iron levels are similar in both elderly women with or without rheumatoid arthritis. J Am Diet Assoc, March 1996.
* Riboflavin Deficiency and Rheumatoid Arthritis. There is an association of riboflavin deficiency with the further development of rheumatoid arthritis and the inflammation characterizing the disease. Ann Rheum Dis, Nov. 1996.
* Vitamin D and Osteoarthritis. Low intake and low serum levels of vitamin D seem to be associated with an increased risk for progression of osteoarthritis in the knee. Ann Intern Med, Sept. 1, 1996.
* Vitamin A and Infectious Arthritis. Vitamin A deficiency may exacerbate acute Lyme arthritis. Conversely, intake of vitamin A may ease symptoms of Lyme arthritis. J Infect Dis, Oct. 1996.
* Weight Loss and Osteoarthritis. Early indicators suggest that weight loss can prevent the onset of osteoarthritic symptoms and alleviate symptoms already present. Am J Clin Nutr, March 1996
