Medical science gives AiArthritis patients plenty to look forward to

Over 54 million Americans live with arthritis — and 15 million of them are diagnosed with an “AiArthritis” disease, meaning they’re impacted by autoimmune and autoinflammatory conditions that manifest in debilitating ways beyond traditional arthritis. These conditions can cause everything from fatigue and fever to tissue and organ damage.  

Onset of these diseases ranges from 20 to 40 years old in adults — and any age in children. Lack of awareness of this fact contributes to delayed diagnoses, which can then lead to irreversibly damaging treatment delays. Compounding matters, their presentation and progression varies from person to person, so there isn’t a uniform response to therapeutics.

That’s why supporting the creation of new therapies that target unique needs — and identifying those therapies for patients at the right time — is instrumental to improving health outcomes.
