Rheumatoid Arthritis and Periodontal Inflammatory Disease (RAPID)

The most prevalent chronic inflammatory diseases of humans are complex disorders of multifactorial aetiology influenced by genes, the environment and their interactions. Periodontitis (PD) and rheumatoid arthritis are two such chronic inflammatory diseases associated with significant morbidity and mortality, and have recently shown to have a bidirectional association. Moreover, the prevalence of both increases substantially with age, and given both the Europe-wide ageing population and the impact of both diseases upon the economy, health and quality of life, it is clear that novel and more cost effective approaches to management are urgently required

Rheumatoid Arthritis: the Public InformeD (RAPID)

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic condition which has a profound impact on the life of those suffering with it. It is a disabling autoimmune disease which causes inflammation of the joints and which can occur in people of all ages. The RAPID project started in December 2012 and will run for two years. It aims to explore the perceptions of Rheumatoid Arthritis in the public.An outcome of this project will be a better understanding of perceptions, knowledge and decision making surrounding RA and the onset of RA symptoms.
