When you renew your support for Arthritis Society Canada, you help fund innovative research and solutions that can make a life-changing difference for those who face the daily fire of arthritis.

Dr. Lise RabillerOne such research initiative is led by Dr. Lise Rabiller at McGill University, who is working hard to better understand joint pain as the most prominent symptom of osteoarthritis.

A recently identified pain sensor in nerve endings may be a novel target for osteoarthritis pain therapy. Dr. Rabiller will examine the role of this sensor in experimental models of osteoarthritis pain as well as in neurons from human organ donors. This will reveal more about how pain is sensed in osteoarthritis and whether blocking this sensor should be further explored as an innovative therapeutic approach.

Supporting research like this gives people with arthritis the chance to live with more mobility and less pain.

Donors like you will ensure that Arthritis Society Canada can continue to fund innovative research like this, to unearth game-changing new findings with the power to change lives for those who feel the searing flare of arthritis.
