Abstract: Foliar buds form a new category of vegetal product, being used in modern phytotherapy, also known as gemmotherapy. Rheumatoid arthritis, often called RA, is a chronic (long-standing) disease that damages and eventually destroys the joints of the body. It has been used three types of bud extracts (Ribes nigrum, Buxus sempervirens, Vitis vinifera) with proved antirheumatic effects, during a period of 3 months. The success of treatment is checked by regular physical examinations and interviews. In all the patients we observed a clinical amelioration, permitting a slight reduction of the dose of the NSAIDs and the DMARDs.
Keywords: foliar buds, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, polyphenols, antioxidant activity
