Reichlin Receives Honor for His Arthritis Research

Article excerpt

Dr. Morris Reichlin, vice president of research and scientific discovery at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, has received the Arthritis Foundation's Lee C. Howley Sr. Prize for Arthritis Research.

The $20,000 award recognizes researchers whose contributions over the past five years have represented "a significant advance in the understanding, treatment or prevention of arthritis and rheumatic diseases." It is presented on the recommendation of a special ad hoc subcommittee of the National Research Committee.

Reichlin discovered and characterized many of the most important autoantibodies in the autoimmune rheumatic diseases. His clinical correlations of these markers led to the concept of disease subsets in systemic lupus erythematosus and myositis.
