Ninety (90) subjects were included in this study, Fifty (50) of them (patient group) were diagnosed as established RA patients according to the 2010 American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism (2010 ACR/EULAR) classification criteria for Rheumatoid arthritis who were attending the rheumatology outpatient clinic of Baghdad teaching hospital, and compared with 40 apparently healthy control group. TT allele had the highest association with RA while AT allele had the weakest association with RA, whoever, all these alleles did not associated significantly with RA. The study shown that there was no significant difference in the galactin-8 gene polymorphism between RA and control
