#1147: MM- Neural Stimulation and Rheumatoid Arthritis
Release Date: 07/18/2019
Do you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. A new type of treatment may soon be available to people with rheumatoid arthritis thanks to the European League Against Rheumatism. They found that vagus nerve stimulation through a small neurostimulator helped with symptoms. Surprisingly, the participants who received stimulation once per day had better symptom control than those that received it four times per day. During the study, participants also had a decrease of more than 30% in cytokine levels. Although it’s unlikely that everyone with rheumatoid arthritis will be walking around with an implant in their head, the study did pave the way for other therapies besides medication to treat symptoms.
