Research Studies Now Enrolling in Porter, TX

ARH Research is committed to developing innovative, alternative treatments for autoimmune and chronic health issues for patients living in the Porter, TX, area.

When you have an autoimmune disease, your immune system targets healthy cells and tissue, rather than foreign cells like viruses or bacteria. Unfortunately, many autoimmune diseases and chronic health conditions do not have a cure, so current treatments focus on treating symptoms and providing pain relief to patients. 

Many of the approved medications available to patients today provide only minimal pain or symptom relief, which can be frustrating. ARH Research and our partners believe that better treatments are possible.

What We Study

The team of research professionals at ARH Research study several autoimmune diseases and chronic conditions, including:

Rheumatoid Arthritis

An autoimmune condition that attacks the membranes in the joints. Symptoms usually include swelling, joint stiffness, chronic inflammation, and pain.

Ankylosing Spondylitis

An inflammatory rheumatalogic condition that affects the spine and large joints. Reduced flexibility in the spine, back pain, and inflammation that can eventually lead to destruction or fusing of bone are some of the symptoms.


An overproduction of uric acid that results in a common type of arthritis characterized by severe pain, tenderness, redness, and swelling in the joints, especially in the big toe.

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

A chronic autoimmune disease that can affect many different parts of the body, usually causing inflammation in skin, joints, and organs.

Psoriatic Arthritis

A chronic, inflammatory arthritis often diagnosed in people who also suffer from psoriasis. The most common symptoms are pain, swelling, and stiffness in the joints of the hands and feet.

Sjögren’s Syndrome

An autoimmune disorder often found in patients with other autoimmune issues like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. With this illness, the immune system often attacks the mucous membranes and moisture-secreting glands in the eyes and mouth, resulting in dry eyes and mouth.
