ARTHRITIS Symptoms and Causes

If you feel pain and stiffness in your body or have trouble moving around, you might have Arthritis. Most kinds of Arthritis cause pain and swelling in your joints. Joints are places where two bones meet, such as your elbow or knee. Over time, a swollen joint can become severely damaged. Some kinds of Arthritis can also cause problems in your organs, such as your eyes or skin.

Types of Arthritis include

  • OsteoArthritis is the most common type of Arthritis. It's often related to aging or to an injury.
  • Autoimmune Arthritis happens when your body's immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake. Rheumatoid Arthritis is the most common form of this kind of Arthritis.
  • Juvenile Arthritis is a type of Arthritis that happens in children.
  • Infectious Arthritis is an infection that has spread from another part of the body to the joint.
  • Psoriatic Arthritis affects people with psoriasis.
  • Gout is a painful type of Arthritis that happens when too much uric acid builds up in the body. It often starts in the big toe.

ARTHRITIS Clinical Trials and Studies

Treatments might be new drugs or new combinations of drugs, new surgical procedures or devices, or new ways to use existing treatments. The goal of clinical trials is to determine if a new test or treatment works and is safe. Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses. People participate in clinical trials for a variety of reasons. Healthy volunteers say they participate to help others and to contribute to moving science forward. Participants with an illness or disease also participate to help others, but also to possibly receive the newest treatment and to have the additional care and attention from the clinical trial staff.
