Kristen Demoruelle, Kevin D. Deane, Nirmal K. Banda, V. Michael HolersAbstractRheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a complex autoimmune disease with an etiology that is not yet well understood, disproportionally affects women and also varies in incidence and prevalence by population. The presence of anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPA) is a highly specific biomarker for the diagnosis of clinically apparent RA. ACPA are also present in the ...

Conclusion: The IR of CV events in our Italian multicentre cohort was lower than that reported in other European and non-European cohorts. Low-dose ASA may have a role in the primary prophylaxis of CV events in RA patients. PMID: 31192004 [PubMed]

ConclusionsCXCL8 and CXCL10 are potential predictors of JIA and RA. CXCL10 is a more significant predictor. The CXCL16 was not found to have such impact and it might be of value in a subgroup of seropositive RA patients.

A 69-year-old man with a history of rheumatoid arthritis and pulmonary fibrosis presented with an incidentally discovered 11.5 cm left renal mass with a level 3 inferior vena cava (IVC) tumor thrombus, including involvement of the left adrenal and lumbar veins. The thrombus was highly vascularized as shown in Figure 1A-C. Preoperative evaluation was negative for metastatic disease and the serum creatinine (SCr) level was 1.55 mg/dL, correlating with an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of 46 mL/min/1.73m2.

This study analysed the prevalence of cervical spine instability in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) patients following at a single centre in Basrah.Patients and methodsData were collected directly from patients through cervical spine examinations. Each patient was sent for dynamic (flexion and extension) lateral cervical radiographic imaging to assess the presence of atlantoaxial subluxation (AAS), superior migration of the odontoid (SMO) and sub-axial subluxation (SAS). Patients with positive radiographic findings were sent for MRI scans of the cervical spine to assess neurological compression.ResultsThe prevalence rate of cerv...

This study investigated the relationship between α7nAChR and RA development and the effects of SIN on α7nAChR expression in vivo and in vitro. Sprague-Dawley rats were injected with complete Freund's adjuvant to induce arthritis and then treated with SIN or methotrexate (MTX) from day 0 to day 30. Four clinical parameters-paw volume, arthritic index (AI), serum TNF-α concentration, and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)-were measured. Splenic lymphocytes were isolated for Bacille Calmette Guerin (BCG) stimulation. α7nAChR expression in tissues and cells was examined by RT-PCR, western blot, immuno...

Authors: Stolyarova E, Beduleva L, Menshikov I, Sidorov A, Khramova T Abstract Our recent studies have identified a new factor in the negative immunoregulation that prevents experimental autoimmune diseases (1). This factor was shown to be anti-idiotypic antibodies to lymphocytes against autoimmune disease-inducing antigens; at the same time, it is specific for neoepitopes on papain Fc fragments of homologous IgG (1). Because of its specificity to Fc fragments, we designated this regulatory factor "regulatory rheumatoid factor" (regRF) (2). Immunization with IgG Fc fragments that expose epitopes recognize...
