Technology project to analyse thousands of personal experiences of rheumatoid arthritis drugs

31 October 2016

The research study, launching in November, is being run by three distinct organisations – the social network HealthUnlocked, National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) and The University of Manchester. It will review and assess first hand experiences of drug usage and side-effects from thousands of people living with the condition through conversations, engagement and discussions happening about the condition on social media.
