Its resources: + (when deployed) the scientific board brings together renowned European researchers and rheumatologists and will distribute more than 1 million euros in 2016 in the field of research.

Clarins assumes all overhead costs, 100% of the donations received goes to research. www.fondation-arthritis.org

“It’s a disease that’s as old as the world…but over the past 40 years, these degenerative auto-immune diseases are better diagnosed”

Dr Olivier Courtin Clarins

“It looks like an ordinary disease yet it is an unbearable reality. Painful, swollen joints, relentless fatigue, and a myriad of questions: Why? Why me? Why don’t the doctors know how to help me? Appointments at the doctor’s office, at the hospital, doubts about the pain… solutions that aren’t really solutions: pain killers, muscle relaxers, rest… it’s a disability that just gets worse and may even lead to a loss of complete autonomy. It’s a disease that’s as old as the world… But, over the past 40 years, these degenerative auto-immune diseases are better diagnosed. Some appear in childhood, some during the teen years and others in adulthood. They develop over the course of years and get worse, eroding joints and eroding one’s ability to find relief, well-being and peace with one’s body.”

TRUE or FALSE

Test your knowledge!

Arthritis primarily affects older people?

False More often than not, rheumatic diseases are associated with older people. But, arthritis can also affect children, teens and moreover, young adults. In France, rheumatoid polyarthritis begins around age 40 and 5000 children suffer from juvenile rheumatoid Arthritis.

Arthritis is a genetic disease?

False Genetics is not always to blame when it comes to rheumatic disease. Why is it, for example, that only 5% of those who carry the HLA-B27 gene will develop spondylarthrosis even though the gene is found in 90% of those with the disease? Rheumatic diseases actually involve many factors, including environmental ones like smoking and pollution.

Rheumatic disease is the primary cause of disabilities and professional leaves of absence?

True These diseases bring on great suffering, irreversible deformations and, over time, greater disabilities and a certain social isolation. In France, it is the leading reason behind leaves of absence from work (with an average absence of 2 months) and 20% of the people diagnosed with the disease eventually have to stop working altogether.

The Arthritis Foundation has always been supported by Clarins?

True Disheartened by the suffering his wife endured brought on by rheumatoid polyarthritis, Jacques Courtin-Clarins, the founder of the Clarins brand, established the Association for Polyarthritis Research in 1989. In 2006, the Courtin-Clarins family donated 4 million euros to transform the original organization into a non-profit. Clarins assumes all overhead costs for the Foundation and, as a result, 100% of the donations received goes to research.

The Arthritis Foundation works in collaboration with other Foundations like it worldwide?

True Working with other foundations like it around the world makes it possible to share research opportunities and to finance a strategic vision. The Arthritis Foundation in France works with other foundations just like it in other countries, especially with Arthritis Research UK, Rheumafonds Netherlands, Arthritis Foundation US, Arthritis Society Canada and Arthritis Australia. The CEO of Arthritis Research UK has been on the Board of Directors of the Arthritis Foundation France since 2015.
