New research shows mortality rates are two times higher in postmenopausal women with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP) antibodies. Findings published in the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) journal Arthritis & Rheumatism, soon to be called Arthritis & Rheumatology, indicate the higher mortality rates persisted after adjusting for age, positive rheumatoid factor, positive antinuclear antibodies (ANA) and disease modifying anti-rheumatic...

Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have developed a novel technology that can identify, in animal models, potential biomarkers of ulcerative colitis, a type of inflammatory bowel disease that affects the lining of the colon. The study was published October 3, 2012, in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. The new research focuses on the protein arginine deiminases (PAD), which have been implicated in a number of diseases, including cancer,...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease where the body begins to attack the joints and organs of the body. Proteins within inflamed joints are often modified by citrullination, a process that converts the protein building block arginine into citrulline. These two amino acids have very different physical properties and consequently conversion can result in aberrant changes in the three-dimensional structure of an affected protein. New research published in BioMed Central's...

Health Freedom Nutrition's new Citrulline A+â“ž¢ is a special blend of L-Citrulline and L-Arginine designed to boost nitric oxide levels both quickly and continuously. The secret lies in the fact that L-Citrulline acts as a precursor of L-Arginine in the body. Because L-Arginine increases the production of nitric oxide, Citrulline A+â“ž¢ works in a "time release" fashion to provide continuous nitric oxide production for people with...

The findings, presented in Copenhagen at the annual congress of the European League Against Rheumatism, may help identify patients with rheumatoid arthritis needing more intensive early therapy. Study leader Dr. Gael Mouterde of Lapeyronie Hospital in Montpellier, France, said patients whose first symptoms occur in winter had greater erosion and joint...
