Objectives To assess the efficacy of golimumab in combination with methotrexate (MTX) versus MTX monotherapy in psoriatic arthritis (PsA) dactylitis. Methods Multicentre, investigator-initiated, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-design phase 3b trial in 11 Portuguese rheumatology centres. Patients with PsA along with active dactylitis and naive to MTX and biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (bDMARDs) were randomly assigned to golimumab or placebo, both in combinat...

Abstract Introduction Pyogenic sacroiliitis (PSI) is a rare condition that accounts for 1–2% of all joint infections in the paediatric age group. Its diagnosis is often difficult and delayed due to its nonspecific signs, symptoms and physical findings. Also, the identification of the causative microorganism is frequently challenging due to a high rate of negative blood cultures and the risks involved in joint aspiration in this location. Patients and methods We performed a retrospective review o...
Resumen Introduccion La sacroileitis piogena (SIP) es una entidad infrecuente que representa del 1 al 2% del total de las infecciones articulares en la edad pediatrica. Su diagnostico a menudo se complica y retrasa debido a la inespecificidad de sus sintomas, signos y exploracion fisica. Ademas, la identificacion microbiologica puede resultar dificil debido a la alta proporcion de hemocultivos negativos y los riesgos implicados en la aspiracion de liquido articular en esta localizacion. Paciente...
Background: Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) dactylitis is associated with an increased risk of erosions and higher disease activity. Dactylitis treatment strategies are however controversial due to the absence of evidence from randomized controlled trials studying dactylitis as a primary outcome. Objectives: To assess the efficacy of golimumab plus MTX versus placebo plus MTX for active dactylitis in PsA patients, in a phase 3b trial. Methods: GO-DACT was a proof-of-concept multicentric, investigator-...

Abstract Slags from the CaO–SiO 2 –Al 2 O 3 –MgO system (CSAM) are commonly employed for the secondary refining treatment of special steels. Those slags must be designed to work in the refining reactions, presenting properties that maximize their capability to capture impurities from the liquid steel. With this in context it becomes relevant to study the phases of those slags in the operating temperatures. In the present study, four slags from the CSAM system, with increments of MgO (5.98–23.43 ...

Abstract During the steel secondary refining, the elimination of impurities, adjustment of the chemical composition and adjustment of the temperature of the liquid steel occurs. The removal of non-metallic inclusions usually occurs in this step, being performed by the slag. In this work, a planning of laboratory experiments was defined so that in a second stage, the obtained knowledge can be compared with previous studies and transferred to the industrial practice. First, a review of the literat...
