What Is Our Experience?

     Dr. Franco has extensive experience in the treatment of rheumatic diseases in general and in particular with the rheumatologic disorders triggered/caused by infectious agents. Dr. Franco has treated several thousand patients with different rheumatic diseases over more than twenty years with good results. Approximately 80% of RA patients do respond with variable degrees of improvement. Dr. Franco estimates that up to 1/3 of patients with RA can go into remission within five years. For further information, see study conclusions.

What Is Dr. Franco's Interest In The Field of Rheumatology?

     Dr. Franco believes that infections trigger different forms of arthritis.  These infections are caused by various micro-organisms that include bacteria, mycoplasma, viruses and parasites. They may trigger rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, scleroderma, dermato/polymyositis, reactive arthritis/post infectious arthritis, and others.
