One of the biggest challenges in caring for patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA) is quantifying the degree of disease activity in any given joint. We have built a prototype device using well-established sensors to rapidly quantify surface swelling and heat in arthritic joints. The goal of our studies is to test the hypothesis that this Imager can improve the clinical assessment of arthritis.

This is a single center exploratory imaging study investigating the initial application of 89Zr-DFO-CZP PET in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Patients with active symptoms of RA or si...
The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of anti-TNF therapy on rheumatoid arthritis using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound imaging. Anti-TNF therapies include a ...
The purpose of this study is to further investigate rituximab in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and to evaluate magnetic resonance imaging of the joints as a possible method to impr...
This study will examine the clinical response, cytokine expression and joint imaging after addition of Acthar Gel. The hypothesis is that H.P. Acthar Gel is both safe and effective for tre...
Primary aim: examine a possible connection between cigarette smoking, disease activity and perceived pain in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Secondary aim: Evaluate cardiovascular ris...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) as an inflammatory autoimmune disease affects the synovial joints as well as other organs and tissues. Since aberrant expression of MIC molecules has been observed in RA pati...
We estimated the incidence and prevalence of depression, anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia in a population-based cohort with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) as compared to an age-, sex- a...
Rheumatoid arthritis is associated with an increased cardiovascular risk, secondary to endothelial dysfunction. There is accumulating evidence that methotrexate reduces cardiovascular risk in rheumato...
Chronic inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is associated with disturbances in muscle and bone metabolism.
To explore the role of TNF-α in the peripheral blood of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and its underlying mechanism.
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.
