Pill to 'block' arthritis comes closer to reality
London, September 10 (ANI): Scientists have come closer to developing a potent pain-busting pill that could revolutionise treatment for arthritis with the discovery of a "master molecule" that acts as a messenger, helping fuel cells at the site of inflammation.
The protein GM-CSF is unique to arthritis and plays a role in the defective immune system response that leads to the disorder.
Now, experts believe that blocking the action of the vital protein could lead to a new treatment for the painful inflammatory disease, the Daily Express reported.
Professor John Hamilton who led the research at the University of Melbourne in Australia, said that not only can blocking GM-CSF, which is also known as Leukine, suppress the actual disease, it can also reduce pain in sufferers. (ANI)
