There is no known cure for rheumatoid arthritis, but many different types of treatment can alleviate symptoms and/or modify the disease process.
antiinflamatory and analgesics are used, DMARDS like methotraxate, sulfasalazine can be used, biological agents like infliximab, etanercept are used.

Cardiologist Dr. Naresh Ruparelia's  Response
hi well come to HCM.
No rheumatoid arthritis can not be cured it being auto immune disease. But now adays
early use of methotrexate helps to prevent lot of deformity caused by rheumatoid
arthritis. Even chloroquin has been tried. Better you consult rheumatologist and
they are best to treat this condition. Thanks
