Objective To examine the risk of type 1 diabetes (T1D) associated with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Methods Using IBM MarketScan database, we compared JIA patients with asthma patients and healthy individuals for the risk of incident T1D. Results We included 15,210 JIA, 76,050 asthma and 76,050 healthy individuals 1:5 matched on age, sex, and index date. After adjusting for confounders, multivariable hazard ratio (95% confidence interval) of T1D associated with JIA was 1.48 (0.86-2.56) v...

Objective Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a multi-system chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease with high prevalence of several risk factors for atrial fibrillation/flutter (AF). However, the incidence and risk of AF in SLE have not been well quantified. Methods We used U.S. Medicaid Analytic eXtract from 2007-2010 to identify beneficiaries ages 18-65, with prevalent SLE, each matched by age and sex to four non-SLE general Medicaid recipients. We estimated the incidence rates (IR) per 1,0...

Abstract Background Patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) have a similar risk of myocardial infarction as those with diabetes mellitus (DM). Whether the risk of heart failure (HF) in SLE is similar to the elevated risk in DM is unknown. We sought to estimate the rates and risks for HF hospitalization among US Medicaid patients with SLE and to compare them to those for DM and the general Medicaid population. Methods Using U.S. Medicaid data from 2007–2010, we identified patients with S...

Objective Long-term opioid prescribing has increased amid concerns over effectiveness and safety of its use. We examined long-term prescription opioid use among patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and ankylosing spondylitis (AS), compared with patients with hypertension (HTN). Methods We used Truven MarketScan, a US commercial claims database (2003–2014) and identified RA, SLE, PsA and AS cohorts, each matched by age and sex to p...

Abstract Objective Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), which is associated with increased stroke risk, is more prevalent and often more severe among Blacks, Asians, and Hispanics than Whites. We examined racial/ethnic variation in stroke rates and risks, overall and by hemorrhagic versus ischemic subtype, among SLE patients. Methods Within Medicaid (2000-2010), we identified patients aged 18-65 with SLE (≥ 3 ICD-9 710.0 codes, ≥30 days apart) and ≥12 months of continuous enrollment. Subjects wer...

Abstract Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) can be severe and is associated with increased mortality from a variety of causes, including disease activity (in particular when vital organs or systems are involved), complications of treatment (e.g., infections), and chronic comorbidities (e.g., cardiovascular disease). Research on mortality in SLE has grown considerably over the years, with more recent studies demonstrating disparities according to age, sex, race/ethnicity, and socioeconomic status...

Objectives Baseline retinal examination has long been recommended at hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) initiation, but it is unknown how well this guideline is followed. We investigated baseline eye examinations among U.S. Medicaid SLE patients initiating HCQ. Methods Using billing codes, we identified SLE patients aged 18-65 enrolled in Medicaid, residing in the 29 most populated U.S. states from 2000-2010. New HCQ users were identified by filling a prescription, with none in the preceding 12 months. Ba...
