Treating rheumatoid arthritis with micromotors.

Researchers have developed self-propelled micromotors which employ a targeted gas therapy to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Subsequently, these micromotors successfully treated rheumatoid arthritis with a hydrogen-based gas therapy when injected into the joints of rats. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory-based disease linked to the excess production of a highly reactive molecule produced during the metabolism of oxygen, known as reactive oxygen species (ROS). Once produced, … Continue reading Treating rheumatoid arthritis with micromotors.
