The introduction of anti-tumour necrosis factor (TNF) agents has greatly improved the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis; however, a significant proportion of patients fall to respond to therapy. We hypothesized that genes within the TNF receptor superfamily member 1 B signalling pathway contribute towards the observed variation in patient response. This was tested by genotyping 73 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) from six candidate genes (DUSP1, HRB, IKBKAP, MAP3K1, MAP3K14 and TANK) in a large UK cohort of rheumatoid arthritis patients (n=642). Two SNPs [rs96844(MAP3K1) and rs4792847 (MAP3K14)] showed evidence of association (P
