In this section we bring summaries and short articles which have been especially written for the non-scientist. Our aim here is two fold: provide useful information to help you manage your own condition; and to gently introduce you to the world of scientific research.
In this section of Literature Central we provide selected summaries which we believe to be useful to members of Dragon Claw. This summaries are kindly provided by the British Medical Journal, Lancet, Annals of Rheumatic Disease, Lupus Science & Medicine, RMD Open and Medivizor. We are very grateful for their ongoing support and interest in Dragon Claw.
There are over 100,000 new scientific health publications a month. As such, Dragon Claw administration can not be across this volume so what is chosen is focused towards RD and Lupus. At Dragon Claw we neither endorse nor reject the contents of any scientific article or summary but simply present it.
Please take your time, select a 'quick read' in the comfort of your own home and enjoy. If you find something that is of concern or suggests you take action, change a dose or seek other medication be sure that you consult with your usual medical practitioner first!
