NYU Langone Medical Center has extensive expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, as well as being a leader in translational research in this area. We are excited to share with you some of our newest treatment approaches and research advances. The same labs that developed the proteins resulting in development of Remicade are now working with our clinicians, cell biologists and musculoskeletal experts at our Hospital for Joint Diseases to leverage advances in biogenetics to identify the next generation of treatments. But our ultimate goal is to find and eliminate the root inflammatory actions at the source.
