Rheumatology

The main research interest is in osteoarthritis (OA) and crystal-associated arthritis; principal types of study undertaken are: community-based epidemiological and genetic studies for associations, risk factors and outcomes for OA; gene-environmental interaction studies on knee and hip OA; laboratory investigation of angiogenesis and neurovascular factors involved in arthritis; and meta-analyses and evidence-based recommendations on diagnosis and management of OA and crystal arthritis; current work includes: genome wide-scans and gene-environmental interaction studies in cohorts with OA; identification of possible new morphological risk factors for large joint OA and pain associated with OA; a large randomised clinical trial (RCT) examining the effectiveness of a nurse-led intervention for community-based patients with gout, and the effect size of placebo and contextual response in RCTs of fibromyalgia, OA and rheumatoid arthritis.
