In addition to medical care the physicians of the Rheumazentrum Ruhrgebiet investigate the causes, progression, diagnostic and therapy of different rheumatic diseases. These research activities occure partly in international cooperation.
In 2000 the clinical trial unit was established within the Rheumazentrum Ruhrgebiet. Here we investigate clinical trials during the phases II – IV with new and innovative drugs.
The scientific activities of the Rheumazentrum Ruhrgebiet focus on implementation of clinical trials, to coordinate them and to publish the results in named papers.
