Changing lives through research and innovation

Researchers all across Canada are looking into the causes of arthritis as well as better treatments that offer people with arthritis more relief.

Dr. Armand KeatingWhen you donate to Arthritis Society Canada, you support innovative work like Dr. Armand Keating’s. Right now, Dr. Keating is conducting a promising pilot study, in which patients undergoing knee replacement surgery will have samples taken of bone marrow lesions—bone changes linked to osteoarthritis pain—for detailed examination in the lab.

By doing this, Dr. Keating wants to gain a better understanding of how cells in these tissues communicate, and how that might contribute to more severe disease in people with osteoarthritis. This could pave the way for new treatments to extinguish the flare of osteoarthritis pain.

Support like yours makes studies like these possible. And it is leading our researchers to find effective solutions for people with arthritis.

Help drive more research that has the potential to help the 6 million Canadians with arthritis. Make double the impact today, and fund life-changing arthritis innovation projects.
