Just last week scientists made a major headway in arthritis research when a new study pointed to nervous system’s role in arthritis development. “The Journal of Neuroscience by researchers at McGill University adds to a growing body of evidence that the nervous system and nerve-growth factor (NGF) play a major role in arthritis. The findings also support the idea that reducing elevated levels of NGF — a protein that promotes the growth and survival of nerves, but also causes pain — may be an important strategy for developing treatment of arthritis pain.” This study offers hope that treatment methods will improve in time. ” ‘We are currently using drugs to prevent the production of elevated levels of NGF inarthritic rats; we hope that our research will serve as a basis for the development of a new treatment for arthritis in the clinic,’ said Prof. Ribeiro-da-Silva.”
