Established in October 2000, we were the first clinical department for rheumatic disease (connective tissue disease) of all the university hospitals in the Kansai district.

  1. 1. Given that rheumatic diseases affect varied systems, skin, nerves, arthrosis, heart, lungs, kidneys and digestive organs we provide medical treatments in liaison with other clinical departments.
  2. 2. We offer a blood test (auto-antibody test), unavailable in standard hospital settings to aid in the diagnosis of difficult diseases. Our expertise allows us to prescribe treatments plans based on what we know about the progression of the these often difficult to manage diseases.
  3. 3. Anti-rheumatoid drugs and anti-cytokine treatment (infliximab, etanercept) are given for refractory rheumatoid arthritis.
