Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic systemic disease, which is characterized by chronic inflammation in the synovial tissue. Rheumatoid arthritis ultimately results in the destruction of car...
Tolerogenic dendritic cell (tDC)-based clinical trials for the treatment of autoimmune diseases are now a reality. Clinical trials are currently exploring the effectiveness of tDC to treat...
Hope Biosciences is conducting a research study of an investigational product called autologous adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (abbreviated as HB-adMSCs) as a possible treatment fo...
IL-7 and IL-7R Expression in Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells, Peripheral Blood Monocytes or Differentiated Macrophages of Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients With Active vs. Inactive Disease Treated With DMARD and/or CIMZIA
The purpose of the study is to better understand the factors present in the cells of inflamed joints of patients with arthritis that may cause rheumatoid arthritis. Knowledge gained from t...
1. Objectives: Evaluation of mesenchymal stem cell therapy effects on cellular immune response in refractory rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. 2. Design: This study has been perf...
Tryptophan and its metabolites have been suggested to play a role in inflammatory processes. However, studies in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are scarce, which prompted us to investigate two cohorts of R...
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the role of CDKN1A in rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
A 51-year-old woman with a previous history of rheumatoid arthritis experienced painless and progressive visual loss in the left eye for three weeks. Fundus examination revealed optic disc pallor in h...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the most common inflammatory arthritis and is a major cause of disability. The nuclear factor-kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells (NF-κB) signaling pathway ha...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is associated with an approximately two-fold elevated risk of cardiovascular (CV)-related mortality. Patients with RA present with systemic inflammation including raised circ...
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.
Subcutaneous nodules seen in 20-30% of rheumatoid arthritis patients. They may arise anywhere on the body, but are most frequently found over the bony prominences. The nodules are characterized histologically by dense areas of fibrinoid necrosis with basophilic streaks and granules, surrounded by a palisade of cells, mainly fibroblasts and histiocytes.
