Subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus is a clinically distinct form of cutaneous lupus erythematosus, with age of onset typically in the second to fifth decades. Eleven cases have been reported in childhood, and we present the first known case of subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus in identical twins. Although flares are typically photo-induced, we present an annular eruption typical of subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus with concurrent pinworm infestation, with recurrence of disease with cutaneous ...
Old dermatological wisdom says that syphilis and lupus are great imitators. Cutaneous manifestations of lupus erythematosus (LE) are usually characteristic, however, some patients may present with a less typical clinical picture. Correct diagnosis of cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) requires a high level of clinical suspicion and understanding of broad differential diagnosis. Early lesions of CLE are sometimes difficult to diagnose, both clinically and histopathologically. This article is protected by co...
Lupus erythematosus tumidus (LET) is an uncommon type of cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) that is rarely associated with other forms of lupus erythematosus.
Mucormycosis is a rare fungal infection but life-threatening, especially in lupus nephritis (LN). Mucormycosis may manifest as rhino-orbital-cerebral, pulmonary, cutaneous, gastrointestinal, renal, or disseminated forms.
Relative to SLE, epidemiologic studies on chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CCLE) are rare and limited to populations without racial diversity. We sought to provide minimum estimates of the incidence of primary CCLE (CCLE in absence of SLE) in a predominantly white and black population in the Southestern United States.
Subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus is rare in children. Most patients respond well to conventional therapy with prednisone, hydroxychloroquine, or both. Other case reports and small series have reported successful clearance with rituximab in adults. We report an adolescent who obtained remission with rituximab after failing conventional therapy.
Tofacitinib is an oral Janus kinase inhibitor that is under investigation for the treatment of psoriatic arthritis. We evaluated tofacitinib in patients with active psoriatic arthritis who previously had an inadequate response to conventional synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs).
Cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa (CPAN) is a rare cutaneous small- to medium-vessel vasculitis of unknown etiology. Clinically it ranges in manifestation from livedo reticularis to large cutaneous ulcers and necrosis. Prognosis is favorable and progression to systemic polyarteritis nodosa is rare. There are multiple treatment options, none of which have proven to be definitively effective. Cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa has been associated with abnormal antibody testing with elevations of antiphospholipid cof...
Tofacitinib is an oral, small molecule JAK inhibitor that is being investigated for UC. We evaluated healthrelated quality of life [HRQoL] in tofacitinib UC Phase 3 studies.
Post-marketing surveillance (PMS) is an integral part of monitoring adverse events (AEs) following approval of new drugs. Tofacitinib is an oral Janus kinase inhibitor for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). An analysis of PMS reports was conducted to evaluate the safety of tofacitinib in a post-marketing setting.
Tofacitinib is an oral Janus kinase inhibitor that is under investigation for the treatment of psoriatic arthritis. We evaluated tofacitinib in patients with active psoriatic arthritis who had previously had an inadequate response to tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors.
Gliostatin (GLS) is known to have angiogenic and arthritogenic activity, and GLS expression levels in serum from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are significantly correlated with the disease activity. Tofacitinib is a novel oral Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor and is effective in treating RA. However, the mechanism of action of tofacitinib in fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLSs) has not been elucidated. The purpose of this study was to investigate the modulatory effects of tofacitinib on serum GLS level...
Tofacitinib is an oral JAK inhibitor for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). We characterized lymphoma events in the tofacitinib RA clinical development program.
Neonatal lupus (NL) is a very rare condition with an estimated incidence of 1 in 20.000 pregnancies. It is caused by the transplacental passage of autoantibodies anti-Ro/SSA, antiSa/SSB antibodies and/or anti-U1 RNP antibodies into the fetal circulation. The mother may be completely asymptomatic or have a known inflammatory rheumatic disease, such as Sjögren syndrome (SS) or Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). Clinical manifestations are diverse, being the most common cutaneous and cardiac. The authors pre...
Tofacitinib is an oral Janus kinase inhibitor. This post-hoc analysis aimed to investigate the psychometric properties of the Itch Severity Item (ISI), a numeric rating scale from 0 (no itching) to 10 (worst possible itching) for pruritus in psoriasis, and review the effect of tofacitinib on pruritus in patients with psoriasis participating in Phase 3 studies (n = 3,641). The ISI showed high test-retest reliability (intra-class correlation coefficient: 0.84). The clinically important difference was defi...
The main goal of this work was to analyse how treatment intervention with tofacitinib prevents the early disturbances of bone structure and mechanics in the rat model of adjuvant-induced arthritis. This is the first study to access the impact of tofacitinib on the skeletal bone effects of inflammation.
Skin is commonly affected by vasculitic process and often subjected to biopsy. Cutaneous vasculitis can be either primary or part of a systemic vasculitic process. This study was conducted to evaluate the diagnostic utility of direct immunofluorescence (DIF) in determination of etiology of cutaneous vasculitis. All histologically proven cases of cutaneous vasculitis over the past two and half years were retrospectively analyzed along with their clinical and DIF findings (IgG, IgA, IgM, and C3). Within this ...
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a severe autoimmune disease that involves multiple organ systems. Lupus nephritis (LN) is a complication of SLE and is associated with poor survival and high morbidity. Many genomic studies have been performed worldwide, and several histocompatibility leukocyte antigen (HLA) loci are linked to lupus susceptibility.
Lupus nephritis, a well-known complication in systemic lupus erythematosus, is characterised by a proliferative glomerulonephritis or membranous nephropathy along with a full-house immunofluorescence pattern on renal biopsy. There are very few exceptions in which similar histopathological findings are present, but case reports show that an increasing number of HIV-positive patients (mostly black Africans, but also white patients) have HIV-immune complex disease (HIVICK), which can mimic lupus nephritis. Lup...
There has been much debate as to whether the distinction between lupus nephritis class IV-S and class IV-G is clinically relevant and whether antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies are pathomechanistically involved because they have been associated with the more necrotic and pauci-inflammatory phenotype of lupus nephritis that is more often seen in class IV-S. Recent data show that antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody positivity indeed influences the histological pattern of lupus nephritis and is associated w...
Tofacitinib is an oral Janus kinase inhibitor for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. This post hoc analysis evaluated patients receiving tofacitinib monotherapy or combination therapy, as well as those who switched from monotherapy to combination therapy (mono→combo) or vice versa (combo→mono) in long-term extension (LTE) studies.
The effects of tofacitinib in treating moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis were unclear. We aimed to assess the effects of tofacitinib in treating moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis. We searched PubMed, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, and EMBASE for relevant randomised controlled trials (RCTs), and conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis. Four RCTs with 2,724 participants were included. Compared to placebo, tofacitinib significantly improved psoriasis (≥ 75% reduction in the Psori...
Tofacitinib, an oral Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, targets JAK1, JAK3, and to a lesser extent JAK2 and TYK2. JAK1/3 inhibition impairs gamma common chain cytokine receptor signaling, important in lymphocyte development, homeostasis and function. Adult and juvenile cynomolgus monkey and rat studies were conducted and the impact of tofacitinib on immune parameters (lymphoid tissues and lymphocyte subsets) and function (T-dependent antibody response (TDAR), mitogen-induced...
Monogenic lupus is rare, but its study has contributed immensely to a better understanding of the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus. The first forms identified were inherited complement deficiencies, which predisposed to lupus due to impaired tolerance, and aberrant clearance of apoptotic bodies and immune complexes. In recent years, several new monogenic disorders with a lupus-like phenotype have been described. These include forms that affect nucleic acid repair, degradation and sensing (TREX1,...
