CONCLUSIONS: The 2019 EULAR/ACR criteria for SLE had comparable performance to the 2012 SLICC criteria regarding diagnostic sensitivity and specificity in Korean population of SLE and other rheumatic diseases. However, the new criteria could not reach higher specificity than the 2012 SLICC criteria. PMID: 32083550 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Testing for autoantibodies against both Ro peptides may aim diagnosis, classify clinical manifestations in disease entities and define prognosis in certain autoimmune disorders. A distinct weight could be given to the isolated anti-Ro specificities in the SS classification criteria. PMID: 32083547 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that improvement in MMP-3 levels is key to predicting the clinical efficacy of abatacept. Closer attention paid not only to major clinical indices, but also changes in MMP-3 levels, could improve our ability to optimise clinical results when treating bio-switch patients.

Vegan diet (VD) has improved inflammatory activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in several small controlled trials. The underlying mechanism remains widely unclear. We investigated the effect of a VD in comparison to a meat-rich diet (MD) on markers of inflammation (which have been shown to be relevant in patients with RA) in healthy volunteers.
Conclusion: XBJ can restore the immune balance to treat RA and CIA. Therefore, XBJ could be a potential therapeutic drug for RA. PMID: 32082396 [PubMed]
Conclusions: Testing RA patients to learn their ACPA status and increasing use of abatacept among high-titer ACPA patients result in a small increase in the total budget (

AbstractThe involvement of the cervical spine in musculoskeletal diseases can be crucial in terms of prognosis and morbidity. Early diagnosis of possible involvement of the craniocervical junction is essential to avoid the onset of neurological complications with poor prognosis. Among inflammatory diseases, rheumatoid arthritis affects the cervical spine frequently (in about 25% of patients). Atlantoaxial inflammatory changes are also detectable in spondyloarthritis. The involvement of the cervical spine in diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis is recognized as the cause of various clinical manifestations that may invol...
In conclusion, our miRNA-mRNA co-sequencing and functional analysis identify miRNA-26a-2-3p as a new candidate which is predicated to negatively regulate ISGs. This implies that reduced expression of miRNA-26a-2-3 may be involved in pathogenic IFN signature in SSc monocytes. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
