Controlled clinical studies are necessary to assess the efficacy and quality of new drugs. These offer you the greatest possible security when starting a new therapy under optimal conditions and an intensive and individual care by our experienced study team.

Currently, we can offer you promising therapy alternatives in different dosage forms (tablets, subcutaneous administration or infusion) in case of initial diagnosis or insufficient response of your previous therapy against diseases such as  rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, Morbus Bechterew/ankylosing spondylitis, giant cell arthritis und scleroderma .

Through modern and efficient therapy methods in combination with clinical expertise and new imaging, we try to achieve the best for you!


Do you have rheumatism or do you suspect rheumatoid arthritis?
Your current therapy shows no improvement?

Or are you wondering whether you can reduce your rheumatism medication?

You have gingivitis or bleeding gums?
... and pain in the (finger) joints?
With us, you can test your immune system within a quick test.

Psoriasis and tendon complaints?
And the medication against psoriasis arthritis does not improve your health?

You have Bekhterev's disease and your medication does not work?
On the basis of high-resolution computer tomography images, we can precisely examine the condition of your bones and optimize your state of health thanks to new, innovative medications.

You have a sports shoulder tendinopathy (overload tendinopathy)?
For a current study we are looking for patients with overstrain tendinopathy of the shoulder.

Rheumatism and sport - is that possible?
Do you have rheumatism and feel the first restrictions in your mobility? In a current study, we are investigating whether a targeted exercise programme helps you to maintain your physical activity.

For a current study, we are looking for patients with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis, with or without joint pain, to detect early changes in the joints and to assess bone density.

For imaging examinations we are looking for patients with gout, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, spondyarthropathies (Bekhterev's disease) and rheumatism.
