Vancouver’s St. Paul’s Hospital research team makes medical breakthrough
A team at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver has discovered a new test to diagnose a rare disease, known only as IGG-4RD.
Rheumatologist Dr. Mollie Carruthers, an expert in treating it, said most patients initially receive the wrong treatment.
She said it’s often confused with cancer because it forms masses in the body.
