A pacemaker-like chip implant may be the future treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. Starting in August, the Academic Medical Centre (AMC) in Amsterdam will study whether surgically implanting an electrical device in a patient’s neck can inhibit the inflammation of joints, a common side-effect of the disease.
“This is a whole new way of treating rheumatoid arthritis,” says study supervisor and AMC Professor of Rheumatology Paul-Peter Tak.
