Suicide Molecule To Prevent Rheumatoid Arthritis

by Mia Khanna

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a form of arthritis, which causes inflammation, pain, and stiffness920-161 in joints. Though the disease can affect any joint of your body, the wrist and fingers Parajumpers Damen Jacken remain the worst hit. A recent study conducted by the researcher from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine reveals how the effect of rheumatoid arthritis can be 70-294 reversed by using an imitation of a suicide molecule, which is responsible for causing this disease.

The study, which was performed on mice, is considered safe and effective as it doesn’t carry any health risk. Harris Perlman -the lead author and associate professor of medicine at Feinberg further reports that the therapy proved successful in 75 percent of the mice, and thus has a tremendous potential for treating rheumatoid arthritis in human beings.

In normal circumstances, the healthy immune cells are supposed to die if they are attacked by a foreign bacteria or virus. But, in case of rheumatoid arthritis, the immune cells don’t die, but they start multiplying in the blood, joints, and bones. Till today, there has been no safe and effective way to stop this proliferation. The study discovered that immune cells in rheumatoid arthritis there is a shortage Parajumpers Herren Jacken of Bim molecules, which ensure that cells destruct themselves. This shortage can be rectified by developing an imitation molecule, called BH3 mimetic.

The research was funded by the National Institute of Arthritis, Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease.
