UCT Research Report '11
diseases unit provides inpatient and outpatient rheumatology
services for the entire Western Cape region. Sessions are
carried out at the Heideveld and Khayelitsha Community
Health Centres 6 times a year. We have recently extended
the service to Guguletu CHC as well. Training is provided
on a continuous basis for medical students, allied health
professionals, amedical officer, two rotatingmedical registrars
and two career registrars. Research is largely clinically
orientated, but a laboratory-based approach is being used
to study the genetics of SLE and the differentiation between
flares and infection in SLE patients. Family studies have also
been started in patients with SLE and RA. In addition, there
is significant involvement in clinical drug trials in rheumatoid
arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus and osteoarthritis.
