AbstractAssessment of individual therapeutic responses provides valuable information concerning treatment benefits in individual patients. We evaluated individual therapeutic responses as determined by the Disease Activity Score-28 joints critical difference for improvement (DAS28-dcrit) in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients treated with intravenous tocilizumab or comparator anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) agents. The previously published DAS28-dcrit value [DAS28 decrease (improvement)  ≥ 1.8] was retrospectively applied to data from two studies of tocilizumab in RA, the 52-week ACT-iON observational stud...

We report a series of 10 cases classified as AE, in attempt to further characterize this lesion. The patients ranged in age from 24 to 72 yr (mean, 39.7 yr) and the commonest presenting complaint was abdominal pain. Operative findings usually comprised small peritoneal nodules and/or fibrous adhesions, predominantly involving the pelvis. The lesions were either mesothelial or submesothelial in location and typically exhibited mixed tubular and papillary architecture, sometimes with minor components of solid, cribriform or single cell growth. Epithelial multilayering was present in all cases but usually involved

Abstract Chronic inflammatory pain is a serious clinical problem caused by inflammation of the joints and degenerative diseases and greatly affects patients' quality of life. Persistent pain states are thought to result from the central sensitization of nociceptive pathways in the spinal dorsal horn. Spinal microglia-mediated neuroinflammation plays a pivotal role in the development and maintenance of the central sensitization of chronic inflammatory pain. Botulinum toxin type A (BoNT/A) was recently reported to have analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. However, the precise mechanism underlying its analgesic e...

The hypothalamus–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis acts to release cortisol into the blood stream, as cortisol calls the body into action to combat stress. When high amounts of cortisol interact with the hypothalamus, the HPA axis will slow down its activity. The amygdala detects stress, while the prefrontal cortex regulates our reactions to stress.
