Hi my name is Kayti Brosnan and I'm a Registered Nurse here in Austin, Texas and today I'm going to talk about Rheumatoid Arthritis Research. There is a lot of research going on around worldwide. Here in the United States the NIH is involved as well as the arthritis foundation and they're doing a lot of research to find out why is this happening. What is triggering this because that is an unknown right now so some of the research they are also looking at is advances in treatment. They have made a lot of advances in the last decade or so of medications that are actually reversing or limiting the actual degeneration that is happening with the RA to the joints or to the muscles so the research is advancing with the medicine, with the treatment with diet and exercise and what is actually beneficial for people that have RA. There is a lot of research that you can use on your own at home with the world wide web and you can use different search engines and they can give you a really good idea of what clinical trials are going on, what medications are being pulled off the market or people have comments and other patients are saying yea this worked or this didn't work so there is a lot of research that you can do for yourself for your own particular case with rheumatoid arthritis that is separate than what the world is doing, the world of scientists and doctors with arthritis foundations and things like that. So that is just some of the research that is out there for rheumatoid arthritis.
