Participate in New Clinical Trials for Lupus and Arthritis Treatments

Rheumatoid arthritis affects nearly 2 million Americans. Marked by pain, joint stiffness and swelling, it is a serious disability. Lupus, a life threatening autoimmune disease, also affects 2 million Americans. Both are serious medical issues in need of new and improved treatments. To address this issue the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation is conducting new clinical trials which could be critical for developing new treatments.

The following article is a call to action: a call for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis patients to participate in new clinical trials that could result in new and improved therapies for these severe medical illnesses. The article gives information about the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF) and speaks with the chair of the OMRF’s Clinical Pharmacology Research Program, Joan Merrill, M.D., and the lead researcher on the rheumatoid arthritis studies, Ewa Okech, M.D.

The article also outlines information on lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, and gives specific contact information for anyone wanting to participate in the upcoming studies.
