Immuno Disease Associations
Disease Name:  Osteoarthritis
Disease Synonyms:  no synonynms
Comment:  The collagenolytic MMPs 3 and 13 are strongly implicated in cartilage destruction in OA.
Disease X-refs:  Disease Ontology: DOID:8398
References:  9
Disease Name:  Rheumatoid arthritis
Disease Synonyms:  no synonynms
Comment:  Serum level of MMP3 correlates with disease activity in RA, and is used as a biomarker for predicting bone and cartilage damage and evaluating therapeutic efficacy.
