Find out about advances in research to better understand and manage PMR/GCA
After many years in the shadows, polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) and giant cell arteritis (GCA) are at last coming into the spotlight of research interest among rheumatologists and other scientists. It is part of the mission of PMRGCAuk to encourage more research, because there are still more gaps than there is research-based knowledge about these conditions.Medical research
