Iqbal, Anella Saviano, Paola Minosi, Marialuisa Piccolo, Carlo Irace, Francesco Caso, Raffaele Scarpa, Stefano Pieretti, Nicola Mascolo, Francesco MaioneAbstractGout is a paradigm of acute, self-limiting inflammation caused by the deposition of monosodium urate (MSU) crystals within intra-and/or peri-articular areas, which leads to excruciating pain, joint swelling and stiffness. The infiltration of leukocytes drives the inflammatory response and remains an attractive target for therapeutic intervention. In th...

Abstract We read with interest the recent study by Dehlin and colleagues1, investigating the validity of a gout diagnosis in primary care. We have also investigated how a primary care diagnosis of gout compares to a primary care diagnostic rule for gout and to classification criteria. Our objective was to determine the proportion of patients with a primary care diagnosis of gout who fulfilled the primary care diagnostic rule by Janssens, et al for acute gouty arthritis2 and the 1977 American Rheumatism Association (ARA) criteria for the classification of acute arthritis of primary gout3.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To examine whether a change in the presentation of incident gout happened over the last 20 years and to determine the risk of subsequent gout flares after an initial gout attack. METHODS: All incident cases of gout were identified among residents of Olmsted County, Minnesota diagnosed in 1989-1992 and 2009-2010 according to the earliest date fulfilling the 1977 American Rheumatism Association preliminary criteria, New York or Rome criteria for gout. Patients in both cohorts were then followed for up to five years. Cumulative incidence and personyear methods were used to compare flare rates...

Abstract It was with great interest that we read the letter from Watson and colleagues1 describing their investigation of how a primary care diagnosis of gout compares to a primary care diagnostic rule for gout and the 1977 American Rheumatism Association (ARA) classification criteria of acute arthritis of primary gout. They present positive predictive values (PPV) of 74% for the diagnostic rule and 80% for the ARA criteria. PMID: 31308204 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: October 2019Source: Phytochemistry, Volume 166Author(s): Bao-Bao Shi, Jing Chen, Mei-Fen Bao, Ying Zeng, Xiang-Hai CaiAbstractContinued interest in bioactive alkaloids led to the isolation of four undescribed alkaloids along with 74 known ones from the aerial parts of Tabernaemontana bufalina Lour. The structures of the yet undescribed alkaloids were elucidated based on NMR, IR, UV, MS and CD spectroscopic data and X-ray crystal diffraction and, according to the plant source, named as taberhaines A–D (1–4). The known compounds comprised of 66 monoterpenoid indole, three carboline and five isoq...
