Objective: To study the changes of several inflammatory index mechanism factors in the clinical efficacy of tablet and methotrexate in rheumatoid arthritis. Methods: 20 patients with rheumatoid arthritis were randomly divided into observation (n =10) and control (n =10), then normal people as normal (n=10), all three groups were given methotrexate and the observation group were treated with Qin interest pain tablets. Expression of inflammatory index mechanism factors in each group. Results: After treatment, inflammatory index mechanism factors were detected; a significant decrease of IFN-g, IL-1b, IL-10, IL-37, TNF-a and other factors was found before and after combination treatment (P <0); IL-8 and IL-13 expression (P <0); the CRP, ESR score of the study group was lower than the control group (P <0.05); and the inflammatory index mechanism factors were affected by drug combination. Conclusion: Tablets combined with methotrexate in rheumatoid arthritis patients is better than methotrexate. It obviously changed the expression of the patient’s inflammatory index mechanistic factors, which has a regulatory effect on the inflammatory mechanistic factors.
