If you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Dr. Salah Ahmed’s research project may be just your cup of (green) tea! Dr. Ahmed’s 2014 Innovative Research Grant project, “Mechanism of Mcl-1 regulation in RA by EGCG”, looked at the effects of an anti-inflammatory molecule found in green tea (epigallocatechin-3-gallate or EGCG) on a protein (Mcl-1) found in RA joints.
For people with arthritis, they’ve only wanted one thing since their diagnosis: a cure. At the Arthritis Foundation, we want the same thing.
With that in mind, last week we convened the who’s who of registry experts from around the world for the Arthritis Foundation Registry Workshop: Improving Health Outcomes for People with Arthritis. The goal of the workshop was to find common ground for how registries can work together to improve health outcomes for people with arthritis and related diseases. This important work is helping more people become a Champion of Yes.
