New vaccine for rheumatoid arthritis?

Hello @Rhumrhum‍, thank you for sharing with us! 

For those of you who may not know what @Rhumrhum‍ is talking about, a new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences investigated the role of the 14-3-3 zeta protein in the development of RA in rats. The study found that vaccination with this protein lead to reduced joint inflammation and severity of arthritis, opening a new avenue for future research and hopefully treatments!

What do you think? Have you heard about the study? If a vaccine were to become available in the future for RA, do you think you would be interested?

Take care,
