Injections into joints stop rheumatoid arthritis

Millions of victims of rheumatoid arthritis there is hope. The injection of the tiny sponges in the joints has significantly slowed the development of the disease in laboratory mice.

Pain, swelling and stiff joints that are caused by rheumatoid arthritis, theoretically may be much reduced due to the injection of the so-called nanorobot. Unfortunately, this technique does not fully cure rheumatoid arthritis, but she runs this autoimmune disease, which Russia affects about 800,000 people. Neutrophilic nanocube safely neutralize a variety of proteins that cause inflammation in the joints of the hands, feet and wrists. In experiments with laboratory mice injections reduced the severity severe rheumatoid arthritis and took the disease under control.

These injections also did not give arthritis to progress further in that case, if was made at an early stage of the disease. Scientists from the University of California in San Diego warn that nanohub are unable to fully relieve from arthritis, and should not consider them as a medicine. However, they reduce the level of inflammation and to minimize damage to the cartilage. Yet the experiments only on mice, but in the near future, scientists plan to begin experiments involving human subjects.

Magicforum recalls that rheumatoid arthritis is a common and quite severe autoimmune disease accompanied by systemic inflammation causing progressive joint damage and disability. Science still does not know the exact causes of arthritis and it’s treatment in most cases is aimed at reducing the level of inflammation. (READ MORE)
