DO YOU SUFFER FROM SYMPTOMS OF RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS DESPITE TRYING MULTIPLE MEDICATIONS?
If so, you may qualify for the RESET-RA study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a novel treatment option for Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) by activating the vagus nerve in the body.
The RESET-RA study is designed to determine whether applying a small amount of electrical stimulation to the vagus nerve in the neck through an investigational vagus nerve stimulation device can improve RA in patients who continue to experience symptoms even after they have tried multiple medications.Check if you qualify for the study
NEUROSTIMULATION AS AN ALTERNATIVE
Scientists have recently discovered that applying a small amount of electrical impulses to the vagus nerve activates a neurological pathway that may decrease the type of excess inflammation that is the underlying cause of RA.1
