Rheumatoid Arthritis Clinical Research Study
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a condition in which the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues, specifically the joints. Over time, along with the pain, the inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis can cause bone erosion and joint deformity.
Fortunately, for the past 20 years, advancements have been made in the treatment of RA. We now have a better understanding of its pathologic mechanisms and have been able to develop drugs to target them. Results for these newer medications have shown to be very promising at improving disease outcomes.
