Synopsis: 
Rheumatoid arthritis is a common autoimmune disease for which there is no known cure. Phototherapy, within a range from 425 to 650 nm and 11.33 Joules/cm2, can induce an improvement in clinical and laboratorial variables in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Rheumatoid arthritis is a common autoimmune disease for which there is no known cure. UV light can induce immunosuppressive effects. Our main objective was to ascertain whether a complementary treatment with phototherapy improves changes in functional scales in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
