Korean researchers develop new peptide to treat rheumatoid arthritis


When the human immune system malfunctions,
it can lead to many kinds of autoinflammatory diseases… like rheumatoid arthritis. Korean scientists have developed a new type
of peptide, the chemical that keeps our immune systems from overreacting and causing these
conditions. Park Se-young has the details. The immune system works to protect the body
from viruses, but an excessive immune response damages normal tissues. This can lead to autoinflammatory diseases
like rheumatoid arthritis and septicemia. Now, a group of Korean scientists has developed
a peptide that can block the inappropriate triggering of toll-like receptor 4, a protein
that can detect viruses. “Toll-like receptors identify viruses and
secrete cytokine, but excess activation leads to diseases. Our peptide regulates the receptors to prevent
excessive secretion of the immunoproteins.” Experiments using mice showed that the new
peptide treated both rheumatoid arthritis and kidney tissues. It also reacted well inside the body and at
the same time resulted in fewer side effects. If the ongoing clinical trials are successful,
the finding is expected to be applied to the development of new medicines. Park Se-young, Arirang News.

    The arthritis treatment “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it) is among the best things I have actually tried. My situation involved fractured spine, hip dysplasia & acute arthritis in both hips. I have used this during the winter and when my big toe knuckle gets painful because of donning shoes. You name an item for this, I might have already tried it. It`s really hard to find something to help with the hips.
