Evaluation of a pilot program for rheumatic disability in an urban community

, : Evaluation of a pilot program for rheumatic disability in an urban community. Arthritis & Rheumatism 24(7): 937-943

A program for the systematic detection and management of arthritis disability was developed for an urban population [Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, USA]. A survey identified 601 persons with rheumatic disability in a population of 9500-10,550. Seventy-eight persons were evaluated and given recommendations. An ombudsman assisted the clients in obtaining health services and coordinated care. An evaluation 6-8 mo. later showed increased utilization of and referrals to relevant services, but on the whole little improvement in functional capacity was noted. The small numbers do not permit more definite conclusions.

Both adenylate-uridylate rich elements binding proteins AUF1 and HuR may participate in thyroid carcinoma progression.

TorsinA, a novel protein in which a mutation causes dominant, early onset torsion dystonia, may serve as a chaperone for misfolded proteins that require refolding or degradation. It has been hypothesized that misfolded alpha-synuclein, a protein i...
