Rheumatoid Arthritis, or RA, is an inflammatory, autoimmune disorder that begins by harming joints and ligaments and attacking the body’s own tissues. RA is characterized by joint and muscle pain, aches, and stiffness, fatigue, and fever. It is also thought to be hereditary in some cases. Those with RA are thought to be at risk for other conditions, such as heart attacks, carpal tunnel syndrome, chest pain, difficulty breathing, corneal abrasions, and Sjögren’s syndrome (ear/mouth dryness).
With a goal of developing rheumatoid arthritis therapies with minimal side effects, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have genetically engineered cells that, when implanted in mice, will deliver a biologic drug in response to inflammation.
