Cardiovascular disease are very common between humans especially at an old age. The source of cardiovascular diseases is generally from genetic formations, weakening of the heart’s muscles or any other unhealthy lifestyles including diet plans or lack of exercises. Some habits might eventually lead to cardiovascular diseases including the most commonly known smoking. Rheumatoid Arthritis is the most common cardiovascular diseases that occurs to many humans worldwide.
This diseases can eventually lead to complications including strokes or heart attacks. However, a new study conducted by a team of researchers from the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research together with another team from the Academic Medical Center at University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, showed results suggesting that bioelectronics stimulations might actually be used to treat rheumatoid arthritis.
The study was led by PhD holder, Sangeeta S. Chavan who is a professor at Feinstein Institute together with Meghan E. Addorisio. They posted the results on the journal of Bioelectronic Medicin. Dr. Sangeets commented on the results of the study saying, “Our primary objective was to observe if a non-invasive treatment using an external device will be effective in improving disease severity of rheumatoid arthritis that continues to plague more than one million across the country each year. We are pleased to observe that this novel bioelectronic treatment significantly reduces swelling and inflammation associated with RA. This clinical research suggests that non-invasive stimulation could suppress inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis patients,”
