Scientists Consider Using Vitamin D To Treat Arthritis
2013-11-05 11:30   审核人:

Scientists are set to examine whether vitamin D could be used alongside, or even instead of, current treatments for rheumatoid arthritis.

Thanks to funding from Arthritis Research UK, Dr David Sansom and Dr Karim Raza in the department of immunology at the University of Birmingham will also look at how the vitamin could prevent rheumatoid arthritis developing.

Dr Sansom noted that many individuals with arthritis, which often affects older people, have low levels of vitamin D.

The expert added: "We have recently found that vitamin D can have powerful effects on the type of immune cells which may cause rheumatoid arthritis.

"This study will help us understand a lot more about how this happens. This is the first stage in considering whether vitamin D could be used as a treatment alongside or instead of current treatments."

Last week, researchers at the University of Aberdeen said they were looking at how stem cells could be used to regenerate cartilage in the common condition of osteoarthritis.
