Figure 2: Shared and common features in systemic inflammatory diseases. Rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and Takayasu arteritis are all associated with premature cardiovascular disease. Although they share disease features that may enhance cardiovascular risk, they also exhibit disease-specific pathology that is likely to be an important contributory factor. This might, in turn, influence the efficacy of individual biologic agents in terms of both primary disease control and protection against future cardiovascular events
