Relatives of patients hold the key to better understanding the cause of rheumatoid arthritis  

News Content

To mark National Rheumatoid Arthritis Awareness Week (24 -28 June) researchers from the NIHR Manchester Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit have launched an innovative new project working with patients and their families to better understand the causes of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The study, the first of its kind in the UK, will provide vital clues to the early events in the process that leads to someone developing RA and help with prevention measures. The researchers aim to create a national database to examine and compare the lifestyle and genetic information in those people who go on to develop RA against those who remain free of the condition.
