«I have suffered from gout for many years, but despite taking the standard treatments I was not getting any better. Thanks to a new treatment pioneered by the Rheumatology Service of the CHUV, I have been freed from the insufferable pain that plagued me for so long.»

B.L., patient with a severe form of gout.



«My grandmother, an artist, suffered from arthritis just as I do now. The only medication available to her was aspirin, but she was still in so much pain throughout her life that she had to give up painting. As for me, thanks to research that has led to the development of new drugs, I was able to launch my career as a sculptor 10 years after developing the first signs of the disease. These drugs have changedmy life.»

V.H., patient with rheumatoid arthritis.



«We are now able to offer our patients therapeutic and psychosocial support provided by a rheumatology nurse who is attached to our service. The creation of her post was a direct outcome of research which had demonstrated the importance of this kind of therapy in the care of patients with rheumatic disease.»

Professor So, head of the Rheumatology Service at the CHUV.
