Authors: Dos Santos VM, Passini Soares VV, de Faria PS, Borges Viana FGM, Duarte ML Abstract The case study of peripheral and axial gouty arthritis is described in a 52-year-old man without concomitant clinical evidence of tophaceus gout on physical evaluation on admission. Gout is a metabolic disorder related to excess of uric acid in the extracellular compartment, and deposition of monosodium urate crystals in the joints and other sites. Arthritis and tophi are major manifestations, which more often involve the peripheral joints asymmetrically. Chronic tophaceous gout commonly develops after a decade of recurrent...

AbstractRheumatoid arthritis and spondyloarthritis are inflammatory joint disorders with an autoimmune pathogenesis and systemic involvement. The skin is one of the most frequently affected extraarticular sites with a number of manifestations or distinct diseases, including common conditions, such as rheumatoid nodules and psoriasis, and rare diseases like neutrophilic dermatoses. The latter are clinically characterised by polymorphic lesions, including pustules, bullae, abscesses, papules, nodules, plaques and ulcers, and histologically by neutrophil-rich inflammatory infiltrates. Inflammatory joint disorders and neutroph...

We report a 63‐year‐old woman with psoriatic arthritis who suddenly developed a subcutaneous hematoma after being successfully treated with adalimumab. As she had also suffered from alcoholic cirrhosis, we speculated that she had developed thrombocytopenia severe enough to cause a subcutaneous hematoma. Furthermore, we investigated the changes of platelet counts in 65 psoriatic patients treated with biologics at a single institute from 2010 to 2016. Platelet counts were found to have decreased by 17.4 ± 2.8% during adalimumab therapy (n = 16), 18.5 ± 3.8% during infliximab therapy (n = 17), 14.8 ± ...

AbstractAndrographolide, a diterpenoid lactone obtained from plantAndrographis paniculata, is used in South Asian countries to relieve various inflammatory symptoms. To study the effects of this agent, the impact of andrographolide on production of inflammatory mediators were delineated in mouse peritoneal macrophages (PM ϕ). Inflammatory mediators like nitric oxide (NO), tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interleukin-6 and related molecular mechanisms of andrographolide-mediated inhibition of enzymes/transcription factors were studied. In addition, the in vivo anti-inflammatory activity of andrographolide was evaluate ...

Publication date: Available online 21 July 2017 Source:Life Sciences Author(s): Hanan M. El-Gowelli, Karim S. Ibrahim, Ahmed F. El-Yazbi, Mahmoud M. El-Mas Aims The hypertensive effect of the immunosuppressant drug cyclosporine (CSA) is paralleled, and probably triggered, by impaired arterial baroreceptor sensitivity (BRS). Here we asked if these effects of CSA are influenced by co-administration of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and if the oxidative NADPH-oxidase (NADPHox)/Rho-kinase (ROCK) pathway mediates this interaction. Materials and methods Female rats were treated for 10days with CSA (25mg/kg/day), d...
