The objective of this study is to investigate the use of PET-CT scan with 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) as a method to predict outcomes in patients with Takayasu arteritis (TAK), as well as to analyze associations between 18F-FDG PET-CT findings with disease relapses, sustained remission, new angiographic lesions, ischemic events, and changes in therapy for TAK. At baseline assessment, 36 TAK patients underwent 18F-FDG PET-CT scan and maximal standardized uptake value (SUVmax) in arteries ≥ 1...

Background The Indian Takayasu Clinical Activity Score (ITAS2010) was developed in 2010 as an assessment tool for disease activity in patients with Takayasu arteritis (TA). It has since been widely used in different studies and in clinical practice for the management of patients with TA. The present study aims to translate the ITAS2010 into Brazilian Portuguese language and to validate it for use in clinical practice in Brazil.

Abstract Introduction and Objectives Cryoglobulinemia is one of the most frequent extrahepatic manifestations of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and it may evolve to cryoglobulinemic vasculitis (CryoVas) which is a systemic vasculitis that affects small-sized vessels. The objective of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of cryoglobulinemia and CryoVas in HCV patients in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Materials and methods A cross-sectional study was conducted and included sixty-eight viremic...

Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) are responsible for endothelial damage repair. Takayasu’s arteritis (TA) is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects large vessels. The aim of the study was to evaluate the number of EPCs and the levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and the relationship of these variables in patients with TA. Thirty women with TA and 30 healthy controls were included. EPCs were assessed by flow cytometry and cell culture and VEGF quantification was performed ...

Background Cognitive Dysfunction (CD) is one of the most common neuropsychiatric manifestations in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). CD occurs independently of structural damage(1,2 or disease activity(,3 impacts life quality(.4 Cardiovascular comorbidities, lower educational level and physical inactivity are risk factors for dementia in elderly worldwide(6 and are frequently found in SLE patients. Identifying the factors involved with CD in SLE can clarify physiopathological processes and pre...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate serum cytokines as biomarkers of smoldering disease activity in patients with Takayasu's arteritis (TAK) in remission. METHODS: Thirty-four TAK patients with stable disease during the last 6 months and 22 healthy controls (HC) were included in a cross-sectional study. Serum levels of pro-inflammatory, anti-inflammatory, Th1, Th2, Th9, Th17 and Th22 cytokines were measured by the multiplex technique. RESULTS: No significant differences regarding serum cytokine levels were ...
