Objective. Rheumatoid arthritis is associated with an excess of agalactosylated (G0) IgG that is considered relatively proinflammatory. Assessment of this association in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is complicated by age-dependent IgG glycan variation. The aim of this study was to conduct the first large-scale survey of IgG glycans in healthy children and patients with JIA, with a focus on early childhood, the time of peak JIA incidence.
