COVID-19 Vaccine in Autoimmune Diseases & Patients on Immunosuppressive Drugs

Notice for Medicare Patients

Medicare is implementing a rule called the “most favored nation rule” (‘MFN’ for short) on January 1st, 2021 which will markedly limit access to your medications. The MFN rule would implement a nationwide mandatory program to automatically lower reimbursement for the top 50 Medicare Part B drugs based on international drug prices. Over one-fifth of the drugs included in the model are routinely used by rheumatology patients.

If you have Medicare, we recommend visiting this website and fill out their letter to demand this rule be stopped.

Research Studies

Rheumatoid Arthritis Research

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a disease that causes pain to the joints as well. However, it occurs when the immune system attacks the membrane lining the joints. RA is more common in women than men. Studies show that supplements containing omega -3 fatty acids, gamma-linolenic acid, and the herb thunder god vine may help relieve some of the pain caused by RA. Also, specific medical treatments can delay or prevent joint damage. Though, it doesn’t treat symptoms. The sooner treatment starts for such a disease, the better.

Lupus Research

Lupus is a severe disease to diagnose as it is a chronic autoimmune disease that produces autoantibodies that attack healthy tissue and cells. Though the exact cause of the condition is unclear, the disease may be triggered by environmental factors. Additionally, pregnancy is also a common trigger among women. There isn’t a single way to identify the disease. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and corticosteroids can reduce pain. For more severe cases, chemotherapy and immunosuppressive medications may be required.

Psoriatic Arthritis Research (PSA)

The symptoms of PSA are similar to other types of arthritis, such as rheumatoid and gout. This condition affects some individuals who have psoriasis, which features red patches of skin and have silvery scales. Research shows that genetic variants might lead to the development of PSA. Scientists have found about twenty-five genetic variants associated with psoriatic disease. These mysterious elements referred to as “trigger genes” that scientists are discovering by using new genetic sequencing technology.

Ankylosing Spondylitis Research

Having inflammation in the spine, hip bones, and other joints to the body is what Ankylosing spondylitis does to an individual. Unfortunately, there is currently no cure for the disease. Research shows that inflammation can be caused by the immune system reacting to a threat. Hence, your immune system can accidentally attack healthy tissues. Other symptoms, like the immune system targeting joints to attack, is unknown. Recent research might reveal specific genes that could be responsible for the behavior of the immune system.
