Comparing the clinical effects of Acthar Gel before and after treatment and compare it to patients with inactive disease.
Background: - Myositis is a rare disease in which the body s immune cells attack the muscle tissue. It can cause muscle weakness, swelling, and pain. It can develop in people wi...
Inclusion body myositis (IBM) is the most common progressive and debilitating muscle disease beginning in persons over 50 years of age. This study will assess the safety and tolerability o...
Muscle biopsies of patients with Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM) have demonstrated a T-cell predominant inflammatory infiltrate, therefore, new agents targeting T -cell mediated cell death m...
A study looking at the effect of pioglitazone in skeletal muscle of patients with sporadic inclusion body myositis (sIBM).
Although more than a dozen myositis-specific autoantibodies (MSAs) have been identified, most myositis patients produce a single MSA. The specific overexpression of a given myositis autoantigen in myo...
Myositis is a heterogeneous group of muscular auto-immune diseases with clinical and pathological criteria that allow the classification of patients into different sub-groups. Inclusion body myositis ...
The aim of this study was to provide the most recent evidence on clinical utility of myositis-specific autoantibodies (MSAs) in the management of patients with myositis.
Celecoxib was characterized as a substrate of human cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2D6 in vitro. In recombinant CYP2D6, celecoxib hydroxylation showed atypical substrate inhibition kinetics with apparent K, K...
Focal myositis is an uncommon inflammatory pseudotumor of the skeletal muscle that may mimic neoplastic and inflammatory diseases. We present one case of focal myositis involving the left proximal vas...
A pyrazole derivative and selective CYCLOOXYGENASE 2 INHIBITOR that is used to treat symptoms associated with RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; OSTEOARTHRITIS and JUVENILE ARTHRITIS, as well as the management of ACUTE PAIN.
A disease characterized by bony deposits or the ossification of muscle tissue.
Inflammation of a muscle or muscle tissue.
Inflammation of the extraocular muscle of the eye. It is characterized by swelling which can lead to ischemia, fibrosis, or ORBITAL PSEUDOTUMOR.
A nonspecific tumor-like inflammatory lesion in the ORBIT of the eye. It is usually composed of mature LYMPHOCYTES; PLASMA CELLS; MACROPHAGES; LEUKOCYTES with varying degrees of FIBROSIS. Orbital pseudotumors are often associated with inflammation of the extraocular muscles (ORBITAL MYOSITIS) or inflammation of the lacrimal glands (DACRYOADENITIS).
