New Research Shows Promise for Finding A Cure for Rheumatoid Arthritis
Date:9/3/2008

from select studies include the following:

New Treatment Pathways

A study led by Dr. Gary S. Firestein at the University of California

School of Medicine, San Diego focuses on how the central nervous system

can control inflammation in RA. The group identified a new pathway that

allows the spinal cord and brain to decrease joint inflammation and joint

destruction. Now that this pathway is identified, new therapies can be

developed to utilize it and mimic the anti-inflammatory effects of the

central nervous system.

Early Detection of RA

Successful management of RA requires early medical intervention and a new

study led by Dr. Antony Rosen at the Johns Hopkins University School of

Medicine seeks to identify specific pathways that drive RA development and

generate tissue damage. Dr. Rosen and his team of researchers are working

to define new blood tests to help rheumatologists diagnose RA in its early

stages, which will improve their ability to predict which patients will

develop worse joint destruction, and potentially provide the tools to

monitor disease activity and prevent early RA from amplifying.

Health Literacy and Patient-Physician Interaction

Dr. Edward Yelin and Dr. Jennifer Barton of the University of California,

San Francisco are leading the most systematic attempt to understand the

role that patient-physician communication and health literacy play in

understanding disparities in RA treatment and healthcare outcomes for

different patient populations. This study compares standard measures of

disease activity such as degree of joint damage, with assessments of

socioeconomic status such as income, education level and employment

status, race/ethnicity of the patient and the language spoken at home to

explain disparities in care and treatment of RA.
