Ladies and Gentlemen:
I have a certain question to place forward to the receiving audience
in this News Group. I am unsure as to the appropriateness of posting this
question within this news group; in that this question might be better
served if I posted it, to another group. If you should feel so after
your reading; please take a moment to re-direct me to that particular news
group if you could.
The matter reflects a predicament - an acquaintance of mine, that I
most recently met has been placed in. His wife has been diagnosed of having
an ailment called "Poly-Arthritis". I have thus far performed a variety of
Library searches and Veronica Searches in Gopherspace to No-avail. This, in
an attempt to perhaps find scholarly writings, any new development in the
field as classified, prospective treatment(s) - that are being performed
away from their region of presence, and any matter that might bring to an
understanding to -how- they might combat perhaps the finality, of the present
diagnosis, that have been rendered.
The diagnosis that have been rendered is that, a certain woman might
have to spend the remainder of her life in a wheel chair, on account of the
deteriorating conditions brought forth by her disease.
I have been demonstrating to him, and concerns that he is associated
with, the power of people and communication channels that which is the
networked environment such as this wonderful tool.
I am most sincerely hoping that matters of a positive nature might
develop from this enquiry to their benefit.
I feel that I must add - as an annotation, that the party is located
in French Polynesia. The reason I make a finite mention of this is to
indicate that there sometimes a certain tendency for ailments to be
classified - in such cases, differently area wise - atleast in name.
I presently wonder if Poly-Arthritis in this case is indeed more
generally known as, or, classified as Rheumatoid Arthritis and it's
variations? While I have not provided case history, symptomatic
development, more finite details etc., I have provided here -all- that
Any help in terms of guidance and direction to sources of information
or expertise in this country of ours, or elsewhere is indeed - much
All the best,
