AbstractPurpose of ReviewCurrent evidence and accumulated experience for the management of calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease (CPPD) are presented.Recent FindingsContrary to other rheumatic inflammatory conditions that account for high interest and growing research, advances in treating CPPD are still very limited and mostly derive from those achieved in gout.SummaryOnce formed, calcium pyrophosphate crystals cannot be dissolved; therefore, management relies on the control of crystal-derived inflammation. Besides classical agents —such as colchicine, glucocorticoids, or NSAIDs—the use of targeted therapie...

We report an unusual case of a calcifying aponeurotic fibroma with diffuse intra-articular involvement of the carpal joints in a 59-year-old female. Radiographs and computed tomography scans revealed a large lobulated soft tissue mass with multiple stippled calcifications around the carpal joints and numerous erosions of the second to fifth carpometacarpal and intercarpal joints. Magnetic resonance imaging showed diffuse multinodular synovial proliferation with inhomogeneous hypo- to isointense signal intensity on T1-weighted images, inhomogeneous hypointense to hyperintense signal intensity on T2-weighted images, and inho...

AbstractThis paper explores the importance of hope as a determining factor for patients to participate in first-in-human trials for synthetic biology therapies. This paper focuses on different aspects of hope in the context of human health and well-being and explores the varieties of hope expressed by patients. The research findings are based on interview data collected from stable gout and diabetes patients. Three concepts of hope have emerged from the interviews: hope as certainty (H1); hope as reflective uncertainty (H2); hope as self-therapy (H3). The purpose of the paper is twofold. First, it aims to underline the sig...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to examine the prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with crystal-proven gout compared to arthritis controls. Further, we analyzed the association between characteristic gout severity factors and CVD to provide further support for a pathogenetic relationship between gout and CVD. METHODS: Patients with arthritis referred for diagnosis were consecutively included in the Gout Arnhem-Liemers cohort. Joint fluid analysis was performed in all referred patients; controls were negative for crystals. Patients' characteristics and different manifestations of CVD and gou...
