AbstractJuvenile systemic lupus erythematosus (jSLE) is a multisystem autoimmune disease of unpredicted course and prognosis. Rates of organ involvement in SLE are higher in children, and overt lupus nephropathy is more often a presenting manifestation of SLE in children than adults. Inflammatory soluble chemokine CXC motif-ligand 16 (sCXCL16) is an important pathogenic mediator in inflammatory diseases as SLE. Herein, we aimed to evaluate serum level of sCXCL16 in jSLE patients in comparison to healthy controls and to correlate it with disease activity and extent of cutaneous and renal affection, to detect its possible ro...

AbstractTo validate a Spanish language translation of the ASAS Heath-Index (ASAS-HI) testing, its reliability, construct validity, and responsiveness in Colombian patients with spondyloarthritis. Translation was done following a forward-backward procedure. Patients fulfilling the Assessment of Spondyloarthritis international Society (ASAS) criteria for either axial or peripheral spondyloarthritis (SpA) participated. Test-retest reliability was assessed by intra-class correlation coefficient (ICC) in patients without treatment changes. In patients who required a therapeutic intervention, responsiveness was assessed using th...

AbstractTo investigate the value of lone anti-Smith antibody (anti-Sm) using Euroimmun line immunoassay (LIA) in a Chinese population. One thousand two hundred eight of 39,766 patients who were analyzed for anti-Sm had positive anti-Sm, and were divided into true group (having both positive Sm and nRNP/Sm bands) and lone group (only having Sm band without nRNP/Sm band). The proportions of clinical diagnosis of autoimmune diseases (AIDs), non-autoimmune diseases (NAIDs), concentration of C3, C4, and rheumatoid factor (RF), positive rate of autoantibodies of antinuclear antibody (ANA) profile, and titer of anti-Sm and ANA in...

The objective of the study was to compare the effects of shockwave therapy and laser therapy on pain, neck functionality, and quality of life in patients with myofascial pain syndrome of the trapezius. 61 patients (>  18 years) were randomly allocated to two treatment groups: (1) 31 patients received soft laser therapy once daily in a 3-week period for a total of 15 sessions, (2) 30 patients received shockwave therapy once in a week for 3 weeks, totalling 3 treatments. Resting pain and pain tolerance were as sessed by a 100 mm visual analogue scale; functional status and quality of life were measur...

AbstractComplex Regional Pain Syndrome type 1 (CRPS-1) is a disabling painful disease whose hallmark is pain disproportionate to inciting event. CRPS is also characterized by symptoms and signs, such as vasomotor, sudomotor, trophic and motor changes. Therapeutic approach of CRPS-1 still remains a challenge for clinicians treating a disease with potential heavy consequences on patient prognosis. In the past years, the treatment with bisphosphonates (BPs) has gained some success as confirmed by the results of a number of meta-analyses. The aim of this paper is to point out the pivotal role of bone in CRPS pathogenesis. The ...

AbstractIn patients with a pediatric rheumatic disease (PRD), chronic musculoskeletal pain (CMP) can have a major impact on functioning and social participation. Because CMP is not always alleviated solely by the use of pharmacological approaches, the aim was to systematically review the available evidence regarding non-pharmacological treatment options for reducing CMP in patients with PRD. PubMed, Embase, PsycINFO, and the Cochrane Library were systematically searched for (non-)randomized trials investigating non-pharmacological treatments for CMP in PRD published through October 25, 2017. The GRADE approach was used to ...

AbstractOsteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic disorder associated mainly with pain, limited range of motion, stiffness, low-grade systemic inflammation, and articular cartilage destruction. Recent studies have demonstrated the involvement of chondrocyte differentiation (hypertrophy) as one of the mechanisms in cartilage degradation in OA. This implicates the involvement of principal changes in the regulation of cellular function associated with profound alterations in chondrocyte energy metabolism in the course of cartilage resorption. Therefore, this review describes the major energy-generating pathways and their regulatory mo...
