PHARMATIVE: Rheumatoid Arthritis, Huntington’s Disease Share Similarity (1)


Researchers have found a genetic link between rheumatoid arthritis and Huntington's disease. The findings show the promise of new therapeutic targets and drugs for both conditions. Huntington's disease is an inherited incurable genetic brain disease. People with the disease are born with a defective gene that causes it, but the symptoms usually do not appear until middle age. And while medications can relieve symptoms, medications do not prevent physical, mental, and behavioral impairment related to the condition. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that affects more than 1.3 Americans, causing pain and swelling in the joints. It can also affect other organs, including the heart and blood vessels. Between 10 and 20 percent of patients with RA do not respond to any medication available. Researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine and the Icahn School of Medicine in Mount Sinai found a link between the two conditions in the epigenome: the proteins and molecules that decorate the DNA and help activate and deactivate the genes. #PHARMATIVE
