Objective Sclerostin is an osteocyte-derived glycoprotein which inhibits the canonical Wnt pathway essential for osteoblastic activity decreasing bone formation. Its potential role in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) pathogenesis was highlighted by experimental studies. Here we measured the serum sclerostin in RA patients and evaluated its relationship with disease activity and damage.
To analyze the influence of a 14-week periodized circuit training (CT) protocol on thigh intermuscular fat and muscle quality (force per unit area of lean tissue) in patients with knee osteoarthritis (KOA). Randomized controlled trial Sixty-one selected participants with KOA grades 2 and 3, 40–65 years old, and BMI < 30 kg/m2 were randomized into three groups: CT, conventional strength training (ST), and educational protocol (EP). The CT and ST protocols consisted of 14-week training protocols c...
Primary Sjogren’s syndrome (pSS) can have a myriad of presentations, ranging from mild xerostomia to more diffuse systemic involvement. It is well established that pSS is associated with a variety of pulmonary pathologies, and it is also known that pSS patients are at higher risk for lymphoma development. Here, we present an unusual case of a woman with primary Sjogren’s syndrome who had both diffuse cystic lung disease as well as extranodal MALT lymphoma, successfully treated for both condition...
Objectives This study aimed to assess the prevalence and clinical correlation of anti-RNA polymerase III antibodies (anti-RNAP III) in Chinese Han systemic sclerosis (SSc) patients.
Background Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)-associated interstitial lung disease (ILD) is associated with significant morbidity and is a critical cause of mortality in patients with RA.
Objectives To investigate the value of repeated bone scintigraphy in the follow-up of patients with synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome and to characterize the changing pattern of osteoarticular lesions revealed by bone scintigraphy.
Objective Autoimmune diseases are associated with psychological distress, resulting in greatly impaired quality of life. Tandem-Psychotherapy comprises trauma-focused psychotherapy with hypnosis and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), followed by supportive-expressive group therapy. The objective was to evaluate whether Tandem-Psychotherapy could reduce psychological distress and improve quality of life.
Anticitrullinated protein/peptide antibodies (ACPAs) have shown valuable effects in the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Both fibrinogen and vimentin are significant antigens of ACPAs. This study evaluated the diagnostic performance of fibrinogen and vimentin peptides in RA. We searched the PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases for studies published in English until January 2019 that evaluated the utility of the peptides of both vimentin and fibrinogen. The bivariate mixed-effect...
Introduction Although there is abundant evidence of vascular perturbation from studies of peripheral blood in systemic sclerosis (SSc), there are few data about the ability to use biomarkers of vascular injury and growth factors to predict vascular outcomes and response to therapy. We sought to explore the association between candidate vascular biomarkers and digital ulcerations (DU) in a clinical trial context.
Background and objectives The purpose of this study was to develop an understanding of treatment preferences in patients with inflammatory arthritis (IA) [rheumatoid arthritis (RA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA)] focussing on treatment attributes that patients’ value, their relative importance, and the risk-benefit trade-offs that characterise patients’ choices around treatment.
