Rheumatism is grouped with other conditions of collagen diseases such as arthiritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and fibrositis (non-articular rheumatism)
Modern terminology favours term as “Disorders associated with auto immune phenomena”. It also covers serious conditions like rheumatic fever, which is grouped along with cardiac diseases, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), polyarteritis nodosa (PAN), scleroderma, dermatomyositis and serum sickness, which require higher skills and specialised training to manage. Bioplasgen/Biocombination 19 is used along with specific medicines.
The clinical concept of autoimmune disease is based upon the identification of antibodies present in serum and having an affinity for some human tissue. They belong to a complex family of immunoglobulins (lg). Bioplasgen/Biocombination 19is of help in wide variety of autoimmune diseases.
The term arthritis is used to describe changes in the joints which may be inflammatory or degenerative or both. The cause of the condition is unknown. Occasionally septic fever is present. The term rheumatoid arthritis which is more common in females, 25 years and above, is specially used for painful swelling of the small joints of fingers which develop a typical spindle shape. As it progresses bigger joints like wrists, ankles, elbows and knees become involved. Polyarthritis is normally symmetrical in distribution. Ankylosing spondylitis is chronic arthritis effecting spines and is a troublesome painful condition more common in men. Bioplasgen/Biocombination 19 is of help in arthritis.
Osteo-arthritis is a chronic condition where degenerative changes in cartilage takes place effecting large joints like hip, knee or shoulder of the age group 40-60 years. Relief occurs to some extend by use of Bioplasgen/Biocombination in these cases.
Occurrence of tubercular, gonococcal lymphoarthritis of children (still disease) have also been reported where apart from Bioplasgen/Biocombination 19 specific target medicine will be needed.
Inflammations of muscles (myositis) or of connective tissues (fibrosites) are painful conditions. Yet another cause of pain is exertion, cramping and exhaustion of muscles. In rheumatism the muscular pain is generalised lowering functional efficiency of the person. Bioplasgen/Biocombination 19 covers all these conditions.
