La Jolla, CA. January 1, 1999 -- Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have studied an investigational anti-angiogenesis treatment -- previously employed against various forms of cancer -- to assess its impact on arthritic disease in an animal model. Their results, published today in The Journal of Clinical Investigation, provide evidence for a central pathogenic contribution of angiogenic blood vessels to the maintenance and severity of arthritic disease, and the potential viability of anti-angiogenic therapy for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.
