CONCLUSIONS: Corticosteroid-sparing control of inflammation was achieved in the majority of patients; however, attempts to stop IMT were often unsuccessful. Close follow-up of patients after discontinuation of therapy is warranted. PMID: 29451845 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 13 February 2018 Source:Autoimmunity Reviews Author(s): Francesco Ursini, Emilio Russo, Piero Ruscitti, Roberto Giacomelli, Giovambattista De Sarro Inflammatory arthritides are chronic diseases characterised by an increase in cardiovascular risk, largely attributable to the synergy between high-grade systemic inflammation and an elevated prevalence of traditional cardiovascular risk factors. Amongst the latter, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes (T2D) play a key position. Previous studies demonstrated a potential insulin-sensitizing effect of anti-TNF biologic medications. For conver...

In this study, a pharmacophoric model based on the crystallographic pose of ponatinib, a potent RIPK2 inhibitor, and 30 other ones selected from the BindingDB repository database, was built. Compounds were selected based on the available ZINC compounds database and in silico predictions of their pharmacokinetic, toxicity and potential biological activity. Molecular docking was performed to identify the probable interactions of the compounds as well as their binding affinity with RIPK2. The compounds were analyzed to ponatinib and WEHI-345, which also used as a control. At least one of the compounds exhibited suitable pharm...

The objective of this study was to estimate posturographic trajectories applying pattern recognition algorithms. To this end, k-nearest neighbors (k-NN) classifier was used to differentiate between healthy subjects and patients with OA and RA. The following parameters of trajectories were computed: radius of sways, developed area, total length, and two directional components of sways: length of left-right and forward-backward motions. Posturographic tests were applied with eyes open and closed, and with biofeedback control. We found that in RA, the radius of sways, the trajectory area, and the biofeedback coordination were...

The ideal material for reconstruction of the scapholunate interosseous ligament (SLIL) should replicate the mechanical properties of the native SLIL to recreate normal kinematics and prevent posttraumatic arthritis. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the cyclic torsional and tensile properties of the native SLIL and load to failure tensile properties of the dorsal SLIL.

AbstractCapsaicin is the pungent ingredient in red peppers. Due to the effects on the sensory nerve fibers, capsaicin has been used to treat pain and inflammation associated with a variety of diseases including rheumatoid arthritis and diabetic neuropathy, obesity, and cardiovascular and gastrointestinal conditions. Despite the extensive publications on different systems, the studies of the effects on the ovary are very limited. The present study was conducted to examine the possible proliferative and/or apoptotic effects of various doses of capsaicin on primarily derived granulosa cells. In accordance with this purpose, o...

Publication date: April 2018 Source:Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy, Volume 100 Author(s): Fangqing Chen, Lin Xie, Ran Kang, Rongrong Deng, Zhipeng Xi, Daoxi Sun, Jin Zhu, Liming Wang Gentiopicroside, a main active component from the traditional Chinese herb medicine Gentiana manshurica Kitag, has been shown to possess anti-arthritis effect. However, the molecular mechanism of gentiopicroside on the osteoclast formation remains unclear. The present study was designed to investigate the effects and mechanisms of gentiopicroside on receptor activator of nuclear factor-κB ligand (RANKL)-induced osteoclastogenesis. Th...
