Resilience in women with autoimmune rheumatic diseases

ConclusionResilience in patients with autoimmune rheumatic diseases is a continuum process influenced by age and socioeconomic status. The ways in which these variables along with exercise influence resilience deserve further investigation.

A variety of rheumatologic disorders may affect the liver. There is a significant epidemiologic, genetic, and immunologic overlap between immune-mediated rheumatologic disorders and autoimmune liver diseases. There is an increased frequency of autoimmune liver diseases, such as primary biliary cholangitis, autoimmune hepatitis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, or overlap syndrome, in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, Sj ögren syndrome, systemic sclerosis, vasculitis, and other immune-related diseases. Non-immune-mediated rheumatologic diseases such as gouty arthritis may also have hepati...

Moreover, the attention given to immunological functions of FLCs has sparked a new light into their pathogenic contribution in different chronic autoimmune-based inflammator...

CONCLUSION: Our study shows the diagnostic value of auto antibodies in AIDs. It would be interesting to carry out prospective studies on each pathology separately, in order to fill the classic vagaries of the retrospective study and objectively estimate the prevalence in different AIDs. These data on the prevalence of each autoimmune disease are valuable for the public health system. PMID: 30807792 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is an immune-mediated autoimmune disease characterized by fibrosis and vascular abnormalities. The cellular and molecular mechanisms remain unclear, and current therapies are limited. Cell metabolism has been shown to play an essential role in cancer survival and tumour invasion as well as in rheumatic diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Although little is known about SSc, cell metabolism may provide new clues for understanding its pathogenesis.

Rheumatoid arthritis, the spondyloarthropathies, systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic vasculitides, inflammatory myopathies, systemic sclerosis and mixed connective tissue disease are autoimmune rheumatic diseases (ARDs) with high incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD).1 CVD is usually underestimated in patients with rheumatic diseases, because the main focus of rheumatologists is the signs and symptoms of the systemic disease.

rez-Santana C, Anaya JM Abstract Autoimmune diseases (ADs) are a chronic and clinically heterogeneous group of diseases characterized by share common immunopathogenic mechanisms and risk factors (i.e., the autoimmune tautology), which explain the fact that one AD may coexist with others (i.e., polyautoimmunity - PolyA). In the present exploratory study, a mixed-cluster analysis of the most common autoimmune rheumatic diseases (ARDs) was done. A total of 187 consecutive women with established systemic lupus erythematosus (n = 70), rheumatoid arthritis (n = 51), systemic sclerosis (n = 35) and Sjögr...

Abstract Rheumatological systemic autoimmune diseases, such as connective tissue diseases, rheumatoid arthritis or spondyloarthritis, are characterized by the presence of joint involvement associated with extra-articular manifestations. Among them, cutaneous diseases are often the most relevant and representative clinical manifestation, as in psoriatic arthritis, scleroderma or systemic lupus erythematosus. In this context, it is useful for rheumatologists to understand better skin diseases and their histopathological features. Evaluation of skin biopsy specimens can be helpful not only to confirm the diagnosis in...

Thrombotic microangiopathies are heterogeneous disorders characterized by microangiopathic hemolytic anemia with thrombocytopenia and renal injury. There are a variety of causes, including metabolic disorders, infections, medications, complement disorders, pregnancy, malignancy, and autoimmune disorders. This review focuses on renal thrombotic microangiopathy in the setting of rheumatologic diseases. Systemic lupus erythematosus is the most common autoimmune disease associated with thrombotic microangiopathy. Other etiologies include scleroderma renal crisis and antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, which can be primary or s...

Degn, Panagiotis Georgiou, Athanasia MouzakiAbstractSjögren's syndrome (SS) is a chronic autoimmune disease that primarily affects the exocrine glands, resulting in their functional impairment. In SS, lymphocytic infiltration of salivary and lacrimal glands, and deposition of several types of autoantibodies, mainly anti-SS-A (anti-Ro) and anti-SS-B (anti-La), lead to chronic inflammation, wi...
