Publication date: Available online 17 August 2018Source: Best Practice &Research Clinical RheumatologyAuthor(s): Ejaz M.I. Pathan, Robert D. InmanAbstractPain in spondyloarthritis is usually attributed to inflammation. However, treatment with potent biologic agents that control inflammation does not always control the pain. Pain is hence likely to be multifactorial. Fatigue is another prominent feature of this condition which again tends to respond poorly to potent biologic agents. There is also a growing interest in coexisting fibromyalgia in this group of patients and how this affects response to biologic therapies. ...

CONCLUSIONS: Studies demonstrated no benefit of mirtazapine over placebo for pain relief of 50% or greater, PGIC, improvement of HRQoL of 20% or greater, or reduction of fatigue or negative mood. Clinically-relevant benefits were shown for pain relief of 30% or greater, reduction of mean pain intensity, and sleep problems. Somnolence, weight gain, and elevated alanine aminotransferase were more frequent with mirtazapine than placebo. The quality of evidence was low or very low, with two of three studies of questionable quality and issues over indirectness and risk of publication bias. On balance, any potential benefits of ...

Purpose of review On the basis of its various advantages and the relevant awareness of physicians, ultrasound imaging has overwhelmingly taken its place in the scientific arena. This is true both from the side of daily clinical applications and also from the side of research. Yet, ultrasound provides real-time (diagnostic) imaging and (interventional) guidance for a wide spectrum of muscle disorders. In this regard, this review aims to discuss the potential/actual utility of ultrasound imaging in particular muscle disorders, that is, sarcopenia, spasticity and fibromyalgia/myofascial pain syndrome. Recent findings Due...
