About euroTMjoint
Euro-tm-joint is the European network for research on Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) arthritis and craniofacial development in patients with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). The initial aim of the network was to identify medical/dental centers and physicians across Europe with expertise in TMJ involvement and craniofacial development in patients with JIA and who are willing to be part of this new research group (core members). Although initialy aimed at Europe, the network now is considered an international global network.
Among its several other aims, the most important ones are to facilitate research on TMJ arthritis in JIA, provide support and educational material on TMJ arthritis and craniofacial development in JIA for physicians and other health care professionals and eventually optimize the therapeutic management of JIA patients with TMJ arthritis.
