Clinical Trials Related to Rheumatology
Rheumatology is devoted to the diagnosis and therapy of rheumatic diseases involving joints, soft tissue, autoimmune diseases, and connective tissue disorders. Many of these diseases are now known to be disorders of the immune system. One of the major changes in modern rheumatology is the development of new drugs called biologics, or disease-modifying agents, which can control the severe disease more effectively.
Participate in a clinical trial to help find alternative treatment options for rheumatoid conditions.
Gout is a common and complex form of arthritis that can affect anyone. It’s characterized by sudden, severe attacks of pain, swelling, redness and tenderness in one or more joints, most often in the big toe.
An attack of gout can occur suddenly, often waking you up in the middle of the night with the sensation that your big toe is on fire. The affected joint is hot, swollen and so tender that even the weight of the bedsheet on it may seem intolerable.
