Non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation improves disease symptoms in patients with rheumatoid arthritisBioelectronic medicine scientists at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research collaborated with counterparts from Academic Medical Center at University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands to carry out a series of pilot clinical studies to assess the effect of a novel bioelectronic stimulation.
 
 
 What is Takayasu Arteritis?
 
What is Takayasu Arteritis?Takayasu arteritis (TAK) is a rare condition characterized by a cascade of inflammatory processes. TAK involves vasculitis or inflammation of blood vessels such as the aorta and its major branches. Inflammation of these blood vessels leads to thickening of the walls of the vessels, which, in turn, causes stenosis and ultimately ischemia of the body parts which are nourished by these vessels.
 
 
 What is Spondyloarthritis?
 
What is Spondyloarthritis?Spondyloarthritis is a group of inflammatory joint diseases that affect the spine and, in some cases, the peripheral joints of the arms and legs. Some forms of spondyloarthritis may also involve the skin, intestines and eyes.
 
 
 Calcium Pyrophosphate Deposition and Joint Problems
 
Calcium Pyrophosphate Deposition and Joint ProblemsCalcium pyrophosphate deposition (CPDD) disease is characterized by the accumulation of calcium crystals in the cartilage tissues of the joints. The crystal deposits cause inflammation of the affected joint, and in severe cases it leads to cartilage rupture.
