ConclusionThe present study provides a corpus of knowledge considered essential for patients in the self-management of their arthritis. The selection of many items reflects recent emphasis on professional recommendations and the patients’ perspective. Future work should lead to the development of new updated KQs for patients with inflammatory arthritis.

Authors: Blazar PE, Gancarczyk SM, Simmons BP Abstract Since the advent of disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs for rheumatoid arthritis, orthopedic surgeons see fewer patients in the office who require hand surgery. However, a significant number of patients still seek surgical intervention to improve pain and function. These patients often present with isolated soft tissue pathologies, but even bone and joint pathology require meticulous soft tissue handling in this cohort. This review highlights the principles and techniques relevant to the management of soft tissue deformity in rheumatoid hand and wrist surgery...

ConclusionsThere is limited experience of the design and implementation of trials for the prevention of inflammatory joint diseases. We discuss the rationale behind choice and duration of treatment and the challenges associated with defining the “at risk” state and offer pragmatic solutions in the protocol to enrolling subjects at risk of RA.Trial registrationCurrent Controlled Trials, ID:ISRCTN46017566. Registered on 4 July 2014.

This study included 200 consecutive adult RA patients. Clinical and laboratory investigations were performed. PROs including tender and swollen joint count, patient’s estimated pain, patient global assessment (PGA), validated Arabic version of the health assessment questionnaire (HAQ-A) as well as physician global assessment were considered. The disease activity score (DAS28) and simplified erosion narrowing score (SENS) were calculated. Patient health questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9) was used to detect depression.ResultsThe patients’ mean age was 41.3 ± 11.9 years and disease duration 6.6 ± 4.9...

Authors: Shono A, Mori S, Nakamura K, Yatomi A, Takada H, Tanaka H, Okano T, Morinobu A, Hirata KI Abstract An 80-year-old woman with rheumatoid arthritis presented with chest pain. Clinical examination revealed new-onset paroxysmal atrial fibrillation with symptomatic sinus pauses and worsening mitral regurgitation, which were both resistant to conventional therapies. Based on her skin lesions, an increase in pleural and pericardial effusion, possible myocardial involvement, and a positive finding for immune complex testing, rheumatoid vasculitis was diagnosed. Subsequent glucocorticoid therapy suppressed systemic...

Authors: Sakaguchi R, Fujikawa K, Okamoto M, Matsuo E, Matsumoto K, Uchida T, Shin-Ya K, Nakashima M, Mizokami A, Kawakami A Abstract A 44-year-old female with rheumatoid arthritis treated with methotrexate (MTX) and tocilizumab (TCZ) was admitted to our hospital with nasal pain. Nasal fiberscopy revealed septum perforation, while a membrane biopsy indicated granuloma and fibrinoid necrosis of the small artery. The patient was treated with prednisolone 30 mg/day after discontinuation of MTX and TCZ. Inguinal lymph node biopsy revealed diffuse infiltrations of atypical T-cells and Epstein-Barr virus-positive B cells...

In this study, plasma cfDNA was extracted from the plasma of cardiac disease patients and the cfDNA fragment distribution as well as the relationships between cfDNA concentration and deoxyribonuclease I (DNase I) activity enzyme implicated in double-stranded DNA processing were examined. Results revealed that the cfDNA concentrations in patients with MI and cardiac angina were significantly higher than that in healthy control subjects. Microchip electrophoresis of plasma cfDNA revealed a single fragment (150–200 bp) in some healthy control subjects and three fragments (150–200 bp, 300–400 bp, and 50...

AbstractObjectiveTo evaluate efficacy, including inhibition of radiographic progression, and safety of upadacitinib, a JAK1 ‐selective inhibitor, vs placebo and adalimumab in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and an inadequate response to methotrexate.Methods1629 patients with inadequate response to methotrexate were randomized (2:2:1) to once ‐daily upadacitinib 15mg, placebo, or adalimumab 40mg, on stable background methotrexate. Primary endpoints were ACR20 and DAS28CRP

CONCLUSION: This is the first report to describe persistent joint pain and stiffness 40 months after viral infection. The high frequency of chronic disease highlights the need to develop prevention and treatment methods. Further studies should be conducted to understand the similarities between post-chikungunya joint pain and rheumatoid arthritis. PMID: 31263071 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
