Title New arthritis jab offers hope for patients: Injection that could help two thirds of those who failed to respond to NHS treatments Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet The Daily Mail UK Media type Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 13/08/16 Description Aches and pains seem worse in the morning as the body works to suppress inflammation as we sleep, scientists say.
Researchers found a type of protein called cryptochrome represses inflammatory pathways during night-time sleep – delaying symptoms.
The research, in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology journal, could help develop drugs to treat inflammatory diseases such as arthritis.
Scientists made the discovery by altering cells from the joints of mice and humans.
Dr Julie Gibbs, of Manchester University, said: 'By understanding how the biological clock regulates inflammation, we can begin to develop new treatments, which might exploit this knowledge.'
