GoodsonAbstractFibromyalgia (FM) is one of the most common conditions that rheumatologists encounter. It is characterised by chronic widespread pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances and impaired cognition. The prevalence of comorbid FM among populations with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) are considerably higher than among the general population, with pooled prevalence estimates of 18–24% in RA, 14&n...

This popular science article from the AARP is representative of the sort of outsider's view of the longevity industry that is presently dominant. On the one hand, it is good that the media and advocacy organizations such as AARP are finally talking seriously about treating aging as a medical condition. On the other hand, the author looks at two of the most popular areas of development, mTOR inhibitors and senolytics, in a way that makes them seem more or less equivalent, and then further adds diet and exercise as another equivalent strategy. This will be continuing issue, I fear. People, as a rule, don't think about size o...

This study aims to test the validity of PRWE in patients with RA.MethodSeventy ‐five patients with RA from a single outpatient clinic participated in the study. Patients filled out the Michigan Hand Outcomes Questionnaire (MHOQ) and grip strength of both hands were measured. Patients filled out the PRWE questionnaire consecutively once for the dominant and once for the non‐ dominant hand. Correlations between PRWE and MHOQ and grip strength scores were analyzed by Spearman's correlation method.ResultsOur results demonstrated that there was a very strong correlation between the PRWE and the MHOQ and a moderate correlati...

ObjectiveTo assess the efficacy and safety of high ‐purity synthetic trans‐capsaicin (CNTX‐4975) in patients with chronic moderate‐to‐severe osteoarthritis (OA)–associated knee pain.MethodsIn this phase II multicenter double ‐blind study, patients ages 45–80 years who had stable knee OA were randomized in a 2:1:2 ratio to receive a single intraarticular injection of placebo, CNTX‐4975 0.5 mg, or CNTX‐4975 1.0 mg. The primary efficacy end point was area under the curve (AUC) for change from baseline in daily West ern Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index pain with walking score (...

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...

Iqbal, Anella Saviano, Paola Minosi, Marialuisa Piccolo, Carlo Irace, Francesco Caso, Raffaele Scarpa, Stefano Pieretti, Nicola Mascolo, Francesco MaioneAbstractGout is a paradigm of acute, self-limiting inflammation caused by the deposition of monosodium urate (MSU) crystals within intra-and/or peri-articular areas, which leads to excruciating pain, joint swelling and stiffness. The infiltration of leukocytes drives the inflammatory response and remains an attractive target for therapeutic intervention. In th...

Conclusion: Addition of MTX to adalimumab confers further therapeutic benefit in patients with RA, but not in those with PsA, suggesting differences in MTX effects in these two patient populations.

ConclusionsWhileextensiveSIJ BMO was a strong independent predictor for development of structural lesions,limited/intermediateBMO were mostly transient and only rarely evolved intoextensiveBMO or structural lesions. These findings enhance our understanding of the natural development of SIJ lesions and indicate different progression patterns forlimited/intermediate vs.extensiveBMO, possibly due to different aetiologies.This article is protected by copyright.
