A Ray Of Hope

For those of us with Rheumatoid Arthritis, everyday we live with the hope that one day there will be a cure for this horrible disease that is eating away at our bodies.  We cling to this hope  with fellow sufferers.  A fellow blogger found some great news of research that is going on in the Netherlands, and that is showing promise for inhibiting the inflammation (inflammation leads to joint deterioration and deformity)  caused by Rheumatoid Arthritis  through the implementation of a pacemaker like chip in the neck.  This is wonderful news. According  to Ingrid Lether of the Dutch Arthritis Association, “this method has a great advantage. Implanting the pacemaker-like device is a known technique, so it can be applied quickly. Something that isn’t possible when developing drug treatments that require lengthy clinical trials. “That makes it something that can be applied very quickly in clinical practice. If this study shows evidence that it really works, then it can be used in the very near future.”

The researchers say that if the chip works as it should then little or no medication would be needed to control the disease. This is a wonderful ray of hope that we can cling to and look forward to.  For  more  information about this research or to read the full article check out the webpage:
