New Treatments Helping Kids With Juvenile Arthritis
WEDNESDAY, July 20, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- New treatments for juvenile arthritis offer hope to children with the chronic autoimmune condition, doctors say.
Scientists are still working to understand what causes juvenile arthritis and how to stop its progression. But, kids coping with its effects have reason to be optimistic, according to Dr. Nikolay Nikolov, a rheumatologist and clinical team leader at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
"We don't have a cure for juvenile arthritis -- we're not there yet," Nikolov said in an FDA news release. "But we're making progress."
