To determine the effect of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) on mortality rates.
Longitudinal analyses of data from a cohort of lima Indians from the Gila River Indian Community in Arizona, who were followed up during the period February 1965 through December 1989.
Among 2,979 study subjects aged >=25 years, there were 858 deaths, 79 of which occurred in subjects with RA (36 men, 43 women).
Age- and sex-adjusted mortality rates were slightly higher in subjects with RA than in those without (mortality rate ratio 1.28, 95% confidence interval [95% CI] 1.01-1.62).
Among those with RA, mortality rates were higher in older subjects (mortality rate ratio 1.51 per 10-year increase in age, 95% CI 1.22-1.88), in male subjects.
(mortality rate ratio 2.23, 95% CI 1.44-3.45, adjusted for age and sex).
