Journal Supplement
This is an excellent supplement to the New England Journal of Medicine Article. The diagrams of how Kineret (an Interleukin-1 receptor antagonist drug) works in NOMID patients are very impressive.

NOMID Journal Article
This article on the NIH NOMID protocol with Kineret was published in the New England Journal of Medicine this year, on August 10, 2006.
