PRNewswire/ -- For the first time during its unprecedented initiative to find a cure for rheumatoid arthritis, the American College of Rheumatology Research and Education Foundation is releasing new information acquired from research funded by the Within Our Reach: Finding a Cure for Rheumatoid Arthritis campaign.
Doctors and scientists from across the nation are utilizing more than $12 million in grants awarded by the ACR REF to investigate critical issues including early detection of RA, novel treatment pathways as well as improved patient-provider interaction and patient care. While research is still underway, the REF is encouraged by the progress made thus far and is pleased to announce the new and promising knowledge which RA researchers will continue to build upon as studies continue.
"The REF is committed to funding RA research that is not being done elsewhere, and supporting scientists and doctors who are most prepared and motivated to work on finding a cure," said Dr. Leslie J. Crofford, president of the REF. "The quality and value of the studies in progress is evidence that the Within Our Reach campaign to is critical and must continue."
