Describing the association with human leukocyte antigen (HLA) alleles could facilitate the understanding of increased risk factors for development of Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal...
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of the Toronto Psoriatic Arthritis Screen II (ToPAS II), Psoriatic Arthritis Screening and Evaluation (PASE), Psorias...
There are a limited number of studies comparing psoriasis patients without psoriatic arthritis (PsA) to those with arthritis. Previous results are controversial.
Patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) have an increased risk for celiac disease (CD). Both diseases have a common genetic susceptibility locus in the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class II all...
Major histocompatibility complex class I (MHCI) glycoproteins present cytosolic peptides to CD8+ T cells and regulate NK cell activity. Their heavy chains (HC) are expressed from up to three MHC gene ...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), affects between 0.3% and 1.0% of the population, it can lead to progressive joint destruction and severe disability. To date, two RA genetic susceptibility facto...
In Spain, there is little data available concerning the evolution and treatment of Psoriatic Arthritis by rheumatologists and dermatologists. This study is designed to obtain more data ab...
Psoriasis is a multifactorial cutaneous disorders which affects about 100000 patients in Taiwan. Psoriatic arthritis is also present in about 20~30 percents. Many drugs have been shown to ...
This study will be an open label pilot study to explore the utility of thermography in assessing response to Golimumab treatment in Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA). Ten patients fulfilling the C...
hOKT3gamma1 (Ala-Ala) is a man-made antibody that is commonly used to prevent organ rejection. The purpose of this study is to determine whether hOKT3gamma1 (Ala-Ala) is safe and effective...
Heterogeneous group of arthritic diseases sharing clinical and radiologic features. They are associated with the HLA-B27 ANTIGEN and some with a triggering infection. Most involve the axial joints in the SPINE, particularly the SACROILIAC JOINT, but can also involve asymmetric peripheral joints. Subsets include ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; REACTIVE ARTHRITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS; and others.
DNA probes specific for the human leukocyte antigen genes, which represent the major histocompatibility determinants in humans. The four known loci are designated as A, B, C, and D. Specific antigens are identified by a locus notation and number, e.g., HLA-A11. The inheritance of certain HLA alleles is associated with increased risk for certain diseases (e.g., insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus).
A type of inflammatory arthritis associated with PSORIASIS, often involving the axial joints and the peripheral terminal interphalangeal joints. It is characterized by the presence of HLA-B27-associated SPONDYLARTHROPATHY, and the absence of rheumatoid factor.
Human immune-response, D-related antigen encoded by the D locus on chromosome 6 and found on lymphoid cells. It is associated with RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS and SCHIZOPHRENIA.
A group of three different alpha chains (CD11a, CD11b, CD11c) that are associated with an invariant CD18 beta chain (ANTIGENS, CD18). The three resulting leukocyte-adhesion molecules (RECEPTORS, LEUKOCYTE ADHESION) are LYMPHOCYTE FUNCTION-ASSOCIATED ANTIGEN-1; MACROPHAGE-1 ANTIGEN; and ANTIGEN, P150,95.
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
According to the National Arthritis Data Workgroup, an estimated 6 million people in the United States report having experienced gout at some point in their lives. In fact, gout is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis in men over the age of 40....
Arthritis is by definition the inflammation of one or more joints, characterized by swelling, pain, warmth, redness and diminished range of joint movement (Oxford Medical Dictionary). There are many different types; Noninflammatory; Osteoarthritis, N...
