Blood test could predict rheumatoid arthritis risk
Scientists have found a marker that can indicate your likelihood of suffering from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) up to 16 years before the condition takes effect. A team from the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology at Oxford University found that a blood test that looks for antibodies could reliably show those who will contract the condition. The research, which we funded, could lead to early detection of rheumatoid arthritis, a disease which affects over 400,000 people in the UK. Rhematoid arthritis occurs when proteins are altered during inflammation in a process called citrullination. It means the altered immune response can ...

Detecting arthritis with light
Joint inflammation (arthritis) is a common problem in medical practice and can be due to a variety of causes. Many types of inflammatory disorders affecting the joints belong to the diverse group of rheumatic diseases. The most common ones are rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis which frequently affect the joints of the hands. These joint diseases are chronic in nature and cannot be cured yet.

This study is making news because of its major finding: when the participants were assessed a year after the start of the study (that is, 6 to 7 months after completing treatment), those assigned to acupuncture or Alexander Technique lessons reported significantly less pain and disability than those receiving usual care alone. No serious side effects due to treatment were reported. Of course, there are caveats Before we declare victory over neck pain, we should mention some important limitations of this research.
