Newfoundland and Labrador Research Technologies (NLRT) is a Newfoundland and Labrador company incorporated in February 2010 by Dr. Majed Khraishi. NLRT was formed to commercialize discoveries made through clinical observation and research at its sister company, Nexus Clinical Research.
This self-directed research led to proprietary methods and tools for early detection of disease and an opportunity to provide leading edge biotechnology and scientific services to the world. Specifically, this self-directed, multidisciplinary approach to research (both Dermatology and Rheumatology specialties) led to the development of screening tools for a serious diseases that often goes undiagnosed, at least until the disease has progressed significantly. These diseases are rheumatologic conditions called Psoriatic Arthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
This algorithmic process employed by NLRT screening tools is patent pending. This process can be used to develop tools for early detection of many other diseases in addition to PsA and RA. Others in development include screening tools for Ankylosing Spondylitis, cardiac conditions and diabetes as well as other inflammatory diseases.

Biologics May Cut Heart Risk in RA
Biologic therapy appears to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) significantly among rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients over two years – and also may reduce overall disease activity, say researchers from Newfoundland. A prospective study of more than 200 patients showed that biologics lowered their CVD risk by almost 12% over 24 months, the researchers reported at the recent annual meeting of the American College of Rheumatology in San Diego. more...
