Increased incidence of spondyloarthropathies in patients with Takayasu arteritis: a systematic clinical survey

Conclusion:Our results suggest a significant association between Takayasu arteritis and spondyloarthropathy. Possible shared genetic or immunopathogenic processes may explain this association which merits further investigations.

Currently, there are no effective treatments for neuropathic pain. Neuroinflammation, characterized by activation of spinal glial cells and increased production of pro-inflammatory cytokines (for example, IL-1β, TNF-α and IL-6), is a pathophysiological process closely related to neuropathic pain. The anti-...
