London – Researchers have developed a new jab, which when injected once every two weeks into the body, can ease the crippling symptoms of arthritis.

During the year-long trial on 1,200 patients with rheumatoid arthritis, researchers found that it successfully helped improve their condition by up to 20 percent, the Daily Express reported.

According to Tanya Momtahen, irreversible joint damage can be a consequence for patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and this is accompanied by reduced physical function.

The new drug works by targeting a protein called IL-6 which is responsible for causing painful inflammation.
