U.C.A.R.F: The Story

U.C.A.R.F: The Story

Ulyssians have always been generous people and right from the start have opened their hearts to worthy causes. At the Wagga AGM in 1997 it was decided that in the absence of a specific alternative, the Ulysses Club would designate research into arthritis as its own preferred charity. The impetus for the choice came from the death at only 72 the previous year of Jo Dearnley who finally lost a 20-year battle against rheumatoid arthritis.

“UCARF Scholarship supports ground breaking research in rheumatoid arthritis”

Suat Dervish received a UCARF funding in 2008 and began his PhD with the Sutton Arthritis Research Laboratory - Institute of Bone and Joint Research within the Kolling Institute of Medical Research which is based at the Royal North Shore Hospital. His research is focused on explaining how a new safe treatment Activated Protein C (ACP); a protein that circulates in the body, can alter circulating blood cells that are known to affect the immune system in autoimmune diseases; particularly rheumatoid arthritis. To date, Suat has shown that this protein can modulate two specific types of blood cell, the monocyte and the lymphocyte, to reduce inflammation in arthritis.
