ABOUT GLUTATHIONE AND RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS



Rheumatoid arthritis is the chronic inflammation that affects organs, tissues, and joints which leads to the destruction of the articular cartilage. It is a form of arthritis that occurs in joints on either side of the body which makes it distinguishable from other types of arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks itself. It is associated with changes brought about by oxidation and free radicals. Rheumatoid arthritis is also a systemic disease, involving other body organs, whereas osteoarthritis is limited to the joints. It is currently thought to be a combination of factors such as hormones, the environment, and the patient’s genetics. Presently, the goal of treatment in rheumatoid arthritis is to reduce joint inflammation and pain, maximize joint function, and prevent joint destruction and deformity.


Scientists have demonstrated that T-cell Glutathione content in rheumatoid joints are much lower than in peripheral T-cells of the same patients. Glutathione modulation may play a role.
