  • Among children with pauciarticular JRA, DEK autoantibodies were significantly more common in those with JRA-associated uveitis than in those without eye disease [ 8 9 ] . DEK reactivity was also found to be strongly associated with onset of any JRA subtype before age 6 years [ 8 ] .

  • Immune dysregulation appears to play a key pathogenic role, as circulating autoantibodies are common in patients with certain JRA clinical subtypes [ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 ] . Two recent studies have shown a highly significant association between early-onset pauciarticular JRA and circulating antibodies to the 43-kDa nuclear protein DEK [ 8 9 ] .
