Keeley asked the Naked Scientists:My husband has been sick for 10 weeks. He got some sort of spider bite and now has Rheumatoid Arthritis. He can hardly walk; is this anauto immune response?What do you think?
He cannot function with out Prednasone. But nothing else works.
Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) is a category of otherwise unrelated drugs defined by their use in rheumatoid arthritis to slow down disease progression. The term is often used in contrast to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, which refers to agents that treat the inflammation but not the underlying cause.
