Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is one of the most common chronic inflammatory disorders affecting the sacroiliac joints, spine, and peripheral joints. Apart from HLA-B27, the LMP2 gene has been shown to play a role in the pathogenesis of AS as well as AAU in AS. However, genetic associations between LMP2 CfoI polymorphism and AS and AAU were inconclusive. We aimed to investigate the correlation of LMP2 CfoI polymorphism and AS and AAU using meta-analysis.

The therapeutic approach to CNS demyelination associated to ankylosing spondylitis is a complex issue due to the contraindication of TNF inhibitors in demyelinating diseases. Secukinumab, a human IgG1...
To investigate the association between tonsillitis and the risk of newly diagnosed ankylosing spondylitis (AS).
Variations in the IL-1 alpha (IL-A) gene increase the risk for ankylosing spondylitis (AS), but the pathway underlying this association is not fully understood. As IL-1A is primarily a regulatory cyto...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate extended safety and efficacy of etanercept in adults with Ankylosing Spondylitis.
A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. Oxyphenbutazone eyedrops have been used abroad in the management of postoperative ocular inflammation, superficial eye injuries, and episcleritis. (From AMA, Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p2000) It had been used by mouth in rheumatic disorders such as ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis but such use is no longer considered justified owing to the risk of severe hematological adverse effects. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p27)
A chimeric monoclonal antibody to TNF ALPHA that is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS and CROHN'S DISEASE.
A butyl-diphenyl-pyrazolidinedione that has anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, and analgesic activities. It has been used in ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; and REACTIVE ARTHRITIS.
A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with potent analgesic and antiarthritic properties. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ankylosing SPONDYLITIS; and in the alleviation of postoperative pain (PAIN, POSTOPERATIVE).
A recombinant version of soluble human TNF receptor that binds specifically to TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR and inhibits its binding with endogenous TNF receptors. It prevents the inflammatory effect of TNF and is used to treat RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS and ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS.
