We reported that the production of BAFF (B cell-activating factor) and IL-6, both of which are involved in survival and differentiation of B cells, is dysregulated in monocytes of patients with primary Sjogren’s syndrome (pSS). In this study, we investigate the relationship between possible aberrations of pSS monocytes and clinical features of pSS patients and the contribution of monocytes to B cell activation, a mechanism involved in the pathogenesis of pSS. Expression of BAFF-receptor (BR3) on...

A comprehensive intuition of the systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), as a complex and multifactorial disease, is a biological challenge. Dealing with this challenge needs employing sophisticated bioinformatics algorithms to discover the unknown aspects. This study aimed to underscore key molecular characteristics of SLE pathogenesis, which may serve as effective targets for therapeutic intervention. In the present study, the human peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) microarray datasets (n =...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a multifactorial chronic autoimmune disease, which involves a complex interplay of environmental triggers and genetic components in its etiology. It has been shown that genetics only explain about half of the liability to develop RA, leaving a large room for non-genetic factors. Indeed, several environmental exposures including smoking, drinking, obesity, and dietary patterns (and more) have been identified to be associated with RA risk, yet the observational nature ...

BACKGROUND Adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD) is a systemic inflammatory disorder of unknown aetiology usually affecting young adults. Interestingly, recent evidence from the juvenile counterpart of AOSD suggested the emergent high fatality rate of lung disease (LD) in these patients. In this work, we aimed to characterise LD in AOSD, to identify associated clinical features and predictive factors, and to describe long-term outcomes of the disease comparing patients with LD and those without. ME...

BACKGROUND Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by the presence of autoantibodies to multiple self-antigens, including heat shock proteins (HSP). Because of the increased expression of HSP90 and abnormal immune responses to it in SLE, we investigated whether an HSP90 DNA vaccine could modulate the development and clinical manifestations of SLE in lupus-prone mice. METHODS (NZB x NZW)F1 (NZB/W) mice were vaccinated with DNA constructs encoding HSP90 or ...

BACKGROUND There is evidence that the cause of primary osteoarthritis (OA) is related to the changes in subchondral bone; however, the influence of subchondral insufficiency fracture (SIF) of the femoral head on the degeneration of the hip joint and the prognostic factors related to joint degeneration remain unclear. The objectives of this study were (1) to investigate the natural history of joint space width after the occurrence of SIF and (2) to investigate the associations between joint space...

BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to identify the molecular mechanism of dysregulation of B cell subpopulations of primary Sjogren's syndrome (pSS) at the transcriptome level. METHODS We enrolled patients with pSS (n = 6) and healthy controls (HCs) (n = 6) in the discovery cohort using microarray and pSS (n = 14) and HCs (n = 12) in the validation cohort using quantitative PCR (qPCR). Peripheral B cells acquired from these subjects were separated by cell sorting into four subsets: CD38-IgD+ (...

BACKGROUND Studies into ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and its relationship with immune imbalance are controversial, and the correlation between the efficacy of TNF-α inhibitor and changes in immune imbalance is unclear. METHODS A total of 40 immune cells were tested with flow cytometry, and the results of 105 healthy control (HC) subjects, 177 active-stage AS patients, and 23 AS cases before and after 12 weeks of TNF-α inhibitor therapy (Anbainuo) were analyzed. RESULTS Compared with the HC group,...

BACKGROUND Approximately 50% of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients develop nephritis, which is among the most severe and frequent complications of the disease and a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. Despite intensive research, there are still no reliable lupus nephritis (LN) markers in clinical use that can assess renal damage and activity with a high sensitivity and specificity. To this end, the aim of this study was to identify new clinically relevant tissue-specific protein b...

BACKGROUNDS Despite the advances of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) therapeutics, several patients do not receive adequate treatment due to the toxicity and/or insufficient response of drugs. The aim of this study is to design photothermally controlled drug release from multifunctional nanoparticles (MNPs) at a near-infrared (NIR) irradiated site to improve therapeutic efficacy for RA and reduce side effects. METHODS Au film was deposited onto methotrexate (MTX)-loaded poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(lacti...
