Facilitating more collaboration and cross fertilization of basic autoimmune research.

Minorities at Higher Risk of Arthritis Disability!

Blacks and Hispanics are more likely than Whites to become disabled from the joint diesase, new reseach findings suggest.

In study that followed nearly 7,300 Americans with arthritis for six years, researchers found that African-American patients were twice as likley to develop a disability as their counterparts. The same was true with Hispanic adults who speak Spanish as their primary language, but not primarily English-speaking Hispanics patients.
