The present study aimed to determine the relationship between the serum hepcidin level and disease activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
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 clarify the relationship between dietary habit and disease activity of rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
To compare several methods of missing data imputation for function (Health Assessment Questionnaire) and for disease activity (Disease Activity Score-28 and Clinical Disease Activity Index) in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients.
Background There is a need for additional biomarkers to assist in the diagnosis and prognosis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The aim of our study was to evaluate the (pre-analytical, analytical and clinical) performance of serum calprotectin as a marker of inflammation in RA. Methods The study population included 463 rheumatologic patients (including 111 RA patients and 352 controls) who for the first time consulted a rheumatologist, 20 healthy controls and 27 patients with an infectious disease. Calprotecti...
To evaluate the relationship between disease activity and radiographic progression in rheumatoid arthritis, three phase III studies of SB4, SB2 and SB5 (biosimilars of etanercept, infliximab and adalimumab) were pooled to assess radiographic progression by disease activity status.
RORc2 is the master transcription factor of T helper 17 cells. We aimed to evaluate whether RORc2 genetic polymorphism and serum levels have association with the risk and activity of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). RORC genetic polymorphisms were investigated by real time PCR. Serum RORc2 protein levels were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Protective effects of rs370515 CT, rs370515 CT + TT, rs3828057 CT, rs3828057 CT+TT and rs9826 GG genotypes were detected. The genotype-phenotype analysis show...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is characterized by chronic inflammation and synovial hyperplasia that eventually leads to the destruction of the joints. CXCL10 has been originally identified as a pro-inflammatory chemokine that mediate leukocyte trafficking and modulate innate and adaptive immune responses. It plays a critical role in the inflammatory response and is involved in several biological processes. The aim of the study was to assess the diagnostic efficacy of serum CXCL10 levels in early RA patients. P...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by synovial inflammation and hyperplasia, as well as cartilage and bone destruction. Several proteins are associated with the pathogenesis of the disease. Galectin-9 belongs to the family of lectins that are involved in various biological processes and have anti-inflammatory activity.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic progressive disabling disease that mainly affects joints. Studies documenting Pakistani patients' knowledge regarding RA disease are lacking and there is a need for such endeavor. The purpose of this study was to develop and validate a novel research tool to document patient knowledge about RA disease.
Interstitial lung disease sometimes occurs in rheumatoid arthritis patients. Although the underlying immunological mechanisms responsible for interstitial lung disease associated with rheumatoid arthritis have not yet been clarified, some reports have suggested possible roles of B cells. To examine the role of B-cell subsets in interstitial lung disease in rheumatoid arthritis patients, we analyzed peripheral blood B-cell subsets. We analyzed the frequencies of the peripheral blood B-cell subsets by flow cy...
The aim of this study was to investigate aerobic capacity and its associations with disease activity and risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) in early rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
To verify whether serum levels of reactive oxygen metabolites (ROM) are predictive of future clinical remission in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) receiving tocilizumab (TCZ) therapy.
Sleep disorders are significant problems in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and are associated with poor quality of life. Irisin is myokine which may have anti-inflammatory and energy regulatory roles. This study assessed the association of serum irisin levels with the quality of sleep and disease activity in RA patients.
The objective of this study was to evaluate early changes in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and clinical disease activity measures as predictors of later structural progression in early rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
We thank Dr. Fleischmann for his comments on the working group's recommendations on rheumatoid arthritis (RA) disease activity measures. While several studies have shown that DAS28-CRP may underestimate disease activity compared to DAS28-ESR (1-4), there also exists conflicting evidence that the two scores have good agreement (5, 6). More stringent cut-offs for DAS28-CRP have been proposed by both Inoue and Fleischmann to improve agreement with DAS28-ESR disease activity categorization, although the thresho...
Over the last decade, many epigenetic mechanisms that contribute in the pathogenesis of autoimmune disorders have been revealed. MiRNAs are small, non-coding, RNA molecules that bind to messenger RNAs and disrupt the transcription of target genes. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic systemic autoimmune disease in which a plethora of epigenetic changes take place. Current research on RA epigenetics has focused mainly on miRNAs. Genetic variance of some miRNA genes, especially miR-499, might predispose an ...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disorder. Decreased apoptosis is considered an important leading cause of autoimmune diseases. As IL17 and PERP can affect apoptosis process, they may contribute the pathogenesis and activity of RA. Objectives of this study were to investigate the possible correlation of IL 17 and PERP levels with RA pathogenesis and activity. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were isolated from fifty RA patients and fifty healthy subjects, RNA was extr...
2-deoxy-2-[ F]fluoro-d-glucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) can portray increased glycolysis due to inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the reliability and construct validity of two methods of quantifying RA disease activity using FDG-PET/CT.
We sought to integrate a treat-to-target (TTT) approach for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) through routine electronic collection of patient-reported disease activity scores (RAPID3) and a multidisciplinary learning collaborative for rheumatologists, using a quality improvement approach.
Abatacept may exert its clinical effect on rheumatoid arthritis (RA) by suppressing anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (CCP) antibody production. This study was undertaken to test this hypothesis by examining the changes of disease activity of RA and anti-CCP antibody levels over time after starting abatacept. Sixty Japanese RA patients who started abatacept were included in this multicenter, prospective observational study. Simple Disease Activity Index (SDAI) and anti-CCP antibody levels were evaluated at ...
Hepcidin is an acute-phase protein and a key regulator of iron homeostasis. Anaemia frequently occurs in patients with thyroid dysfunction, and hepcidin may be a potential link.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a chronic inflammatory disease affecting primarily the joints, is frequently characterized by the presence of autoimmune anticitrullinated protein antibodies (ACPA) during preclinical stages of disease and accumulation of hypercitrullinated proteins in arthritic joints. A strong association has been reported between RA and periodontal disease, and , a known driver of periodontitis, has been proposed as the microbial link underlying this association. We recently demonstrated -media...
Recent guideline updates have suggested de-escalating DMARDs when patients with rheumatoid arthritis achieve remission or low disease activity. We aim to evaluate whether it is cost-effective to de-escalate the biological form of DMARDs (bDMARDs).
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a common rheumatological condition affecting the joints and has a wide range of extra-articular manifestations. A 69 year old male, known case of rheumatoid arthritis presented to our OPD with right lower limb redness and swelling, and left axillary lymph node swelling. Lymph node biopsy revealed a high grade diffuse large B-cell lymphoma with co-expression of c-myc and bcl-2 (double expressor). RA increases the risk of both Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) and non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NH...
