http://www.stemcellsarthritistreatment.com Although the focus of discussion on osteoarthritis treatment has been on cartilage and the potential for stem cells to regenerate it through various tissue engineering techniques, there are new theories about how osteoarthritis develops. Reported in Johns Hopkins Medicine and Science Codex, a new theory of how osteoarthritis develops has a lot of heads turning. Instead of seeing the painful degenerative disease as a problem primarily of the cartilage that cushions joints, they now have evidence that the bone underneath the cartilage is also a key player and exacerbates the damage. They found that blocking the action of a critical bone regulation protein in mice halts progression of the disease. The prevailing theory on the development of OA focuses on joint cartilage, suggesting that unstable mechanical pressure on the joints leads to more and more harm to the cartilage—and pain to the patient—until the only treatment option left is total joint replacement. The new theory, reported in Nature Medicine, suggests that initial harm to the cartilage causes the bone underneath it to behave improperly by building surplus bone. The extra bone stretches the cartilage above and speeds its decline. "If there is something wrong with the leg of your chair and you try to fix it by replacing the cushion, you haven't solved the problem," says Xu Cao, Ph.D., director of the Center for Musculoskeletal Research in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. "We think that the problem in OA is not just the cartilage 'cushion,' but the bone underneath," he adds. http://youtu.be/1gl4iTEfxcU

http://www.arthritistreatmentcenter.com Pores in cell membranes trigger RA. Reported in the Almagest, Experiments by scientists at Johns Hopkins and in Boston have Discovered that pore-forming pathways in cell membranes are associated with a process called "abnormal citrullination" in rheumatoid joints. The pathways are normally used by the immune system to fight pathogens. Researchers say such disruptions in cell membranes by these pores leads to enzyme-activating imbalances of calcium ions and set off the inflammatory immune response that is rheumatoid arthritis' hallmark. Comment: Isn't that what those acne treatments are supposed to fight... abnormal pores... oh well... http://youtu.be/TI954phDnYk

The John Hopkins University School of Medicine, one of the nation's most respected institutions when it comes to medical breakthroughs has announced their discovery that the bacteria responsible for inflammatory gum infections also causes the inflammatory response found in rheumatoid arthritis. This breakthrough could bring about new treatments and the possible prevention of the disease. Rheumatoid arthritis, also known as RA, is the second most common form of arthritis. It is a debilitating condition in which joints become inflamed, leading to pain, stiffness, swelling and lethargy. Having long believed that gum disease played a part in many internal inflammatory conditions, Felipe Andrade, associate professor of medicine at the John Hopkins Bayview Medical center said, “This is like putting the last few pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that I’ve been working on for many years. Dr. Maximillion Konig added, “This research may be the closest we’ve come to discovering the root cause of RA.” Although the link between gum disease and Rheumatoid arthritis has been suspected for many years, some say as far back as the early 1900s, it wasn’t until scientists discovered that the process called hypercitrullination was occurring in the joints of those suffering from RA, was also occurring in the mouths of those patients with gum disease. Citrullination is a natural function in our bodies that regulate how proteins work. This process, however, becomes overactive in people with RA, causing an abnormal accumulation of proteins. Andrade said, “This condition cause the creation of antibodies to offset this condition. Unfortunately, it also causes inflammation and the breakdown of tissue which is the hallmark of rheumatoid arthritis.” He went on to say that, “Other bacteria in the stomach, lung or other organs may be using similar mechanisms to bring about hypercitrullation. If we can get to the root cause regarding the evolution of both combined, perhaps we could prevent rather than intervene. If you are presently suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, a trip to the dentist may well be worth tour while. If you want to prevent rheumatoid arthritis, and many of the other internal ailments associated with poor oral hygiene then the best way is to do what you dentist says, Brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss or use an oral irrigator and rinse with a fluoride mouthwash. For extra protection, it is recommended that you use an oral irrigator like the Oral Breeze. This inexpensive and easy to use device uses a powerful stream of water to blast trapped food particles from your mouth to eliminate bacterial breeding ground and stop gum disease before it can start.

Some chronic conditions, such as the autoimmune disease scleroderma, are especially difficult to treat because patients exhibit highly variable symptoms, complications and treatment responses. The process of finding an effective treatment for an individual can be frustrating for doctors, and painful and expensive for patients. With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), computer scientist and professor Suchi Saria, with Dr. Fredrick Wigley and an interdisciplinary team of experts at Johns Hopkins University, is leading a groundbreaking effort using Big Data to ease some of that pain for scleroderma patients. The team’s research is in machine learning, a subfield of computer science and statistics that allows machines to learn from data. The team designs statistical algorithms that enable computers to analyze large volumes of medical records and identify subgroups of patients with similar patterns of disease progression. In addition, the system learns the symptoms and treatments that are predictive of specific patterns of improvement or deterioration to help doctors pick the right set of treatments for an individual patient. Doctors can then map the course of treatment for new patients, based in part on what the computers reveal about what happened to other patients with similar symptoms. Saria foresees data analysis similar to this helping clinicians treat other chronic diseases, such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. Research in this episode was supported by NSF award #1418590, Smart and Connected Health (SCH)/Integrative Projects (INT): Collaborative Research: Modeling Disease Trajectories in Patients with Complex, Multiphenotypic Conditions.

One simple task you can do to prevent rheumatoid arthritis Brush And Floss To Prevent Rheumatoid Arthritis Ruth Kava writing for the American council on Science and Health reported recent research published in Science Translational Medicine suggests how good dental care might well be an important factor in preventing the onset of RA. The investigators, led by Dr. Maximilian Koenig from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, explained that a bacterium associated with periodontal disease — Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (Aa) — could be the initiator of the autoimmune feature of RA. The investigators noted that Aa, of all the other identified microbes, was the only one known that could produce the spectrum of antigens found in the joints of individuals with RA. To investigate this possibility, they collected fluid from the gum regions of people with periodontal disease and from those of controls and analyzed them for the presence of altered proteins which are known to be immune system targets. In sum, people with periodontitis are more likely to have the Aa bacterial toxin and thus more likely to produce targets for the immune system. This in turn, links periodontal disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Comment: An interesting finding that confirms the research of others.
