rheumatism today presents a
major challenge to the medical
profession and to the public.
1L is in its ability to cripple
without killing that rheumatism
has become of pre-eminent social
medical and economic importance,
according to Dr. William D. Rob-
inson, director the Arthritis Re-
search Unit at University Hospi-
Rheumatism, which includes a
number of joint diseases, such as
arthritis, lumbago and gout, was
neglected as a ,ubject of medical
research until about ten years
In 1937, a Horace H. and Mary
A Rackham grant established the
Arthritis Research Unit, probably
the first full-time research group
devoted to a study of the disease.
The unit was under the direction
of Dr. Richard Freyburg until
1944, when Dr. FRobinson took
With a staff of 12, including a
clinician, a bacteriologist, a bio-
chemist, and organic chemist, an
associate physician and several re-
search associates, the unit divides
its work between clinic and lab-
Although neither a definite
cause nor cure has been found
for the disease as yet, the re-
search has achieved a more ac-
curate classification and diagnos-
is of types of rheumatism.
Most of the unit's work so far
has been directed to the problem
of rheumatoid arthritis, which is
most common in young people and
the cause of the most serious in-
capacitation and deformity. In
spite of the fact that attempts to
find a causative agent of the
disease has had only negative re-
sults, unproductive avenues of re-
search have been closed off, Dr.
Robinson pointed out.
The investigations carried out
by the unit and other research
groups, do not show any infectious
organisms, abnormality in body
chemistry, nutritional deficiency,
nor derangement of function of
endocrine glands, as consistent
causative agents of arthritis.
While psychological factors may
be of importance in some patients,
studies comparing normal indi-
viduals and patients have shown,
no conclusive differences.
Treatment for the disease must
be highly individualized to meet
the personal requirements of each
Although no cure-all, gold salts
have been found to be effective
in treating certain stages of rheu-
