Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients in Training

2014-07-24 14:22:17 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Aim of the study was to investigate the effectiveness (functional ability and physical capacity) and safety (disease activity and damage of the joints) of long-term high-intensity weight-bearing exercises in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).The training proved to be safe and effective.

Description

The 300 patients with RA were randomized into two groups; exercise group and usual care group. The patients who participated in the 2 years intensive exercise training (2 times a week, training duration 65 minutes) improved their functional capacity and functional ability without detrimental effects on the large joints damage or on disease activity. Only patients with excessive large joint damage at baseline were at risk to develop additional damage when participating in intensive weight-bearing exercises. Patients who exercised were able to delay the decrease of bone mineral density of the hips.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Arthritis in children, with onset before 16 years of age. The terms juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) refer to classification systems for chronic arthritis in children. Only one subtype of juvenile arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.

Rheumatoid arthritis of children occurring in three major subtypes defined by the symptoms present during the first six months following onset: systemic-onset (Still's Disease, Juvenile-Onset), polyarticular-onset, and pauciarticular-onset. Adult-onset cases of Still's disease (STILL'S DISEASE, ADULT-ONSET) are also known. Only one subtype of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.

A variable mixture of the mono- and disodium salts of gold thiomalic acid used mainly for its anti-inflammatory action in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. It is most effective in active progressive rheumatoid arthritis and of little or no value in the presence of extensive deformities or in the treatment of other forms of arthritis.

Systemic-onset rheumatoid arthritis in adults. It differs from classical rheumatoid arthritis in that it is more often marked by acute febrile onset, and generalized lymphadenopathy and hepatosplenomegaly are more prominent.

Long-term changes in the electrophysiological parameters and/or anatomical structures of the HEART ATRIA that result from prolonged changes in atrial rate, often associated with ATRIAL FIBRILLATION or long periods of intense EXERCISE.
