Ocular manifestations of rheumatic diseases

ConclusionThe eye could be a responsive marker for the onset or aggravation of an immune reactivation in many rheumatic diseases, furthermore, ocular findings can antedate the diagnosis of the underlying rheumatic disease. By recognizing ocular manifestations of systemic rheumatic diseases it might be possible to avoid or at least delay many long term sequelae.

ConclusionAlthough classically, majority of studies have shown oncogenic roles of nucleoporins as genetic fusion partners in several types of leukemia, emerging evidence suggests that nucleoporins also modulate many cellular signaling pathways that are associated with several major non-hematological malignancies, such as carcinomas of skin, breast, lung, prostate and colon. Hence, nucleoporins are emerging as novel therapeutic targets in human tumors.

Publication date: January 2020Source: Molecular Immunology, Volume 117Author(s): Tang Li, Ru-ru Chen, Hong-peng Gong, Bin-feng Wang, Xi-xi Wu, Yue-qiu Chen, Zhi-ming HuangAbstractInflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is an autoimmune disease characterized by an abnormal immune response. Fibrinogen-like protein 2 (FGL2) is known to have immunoregulatory and anti-inflammatory activity. The level of FGL2 is elevated in patients with IBD; however, its comprehensive function in IBD is almost unknown. In our study, we explored the effect of FGL2 on dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced colitis in mice and on NF-κB signaling in i...

Furthermore, RA is associated with metabolic comorbidities, notably in lipid homeostasis by unknown mechanisms. To understand the links between the loss in muscle mass and the metaboli...

ConclusionIA-HA, particularly HMW formulations, demonstrate cost-effectiveness when compared to conservative treatment options and LMW HA in patients with early/mid stage knee OA. The cost-effectiveness of HMW HA in patients with later stage knee OA was not as apparent, particularly because of the uncertainty in the proportion of patients with late stage OA who have a meaningful improvement after receiving IA-HA. This cost-effectiveness finding supports the use of IA-HA in patients with early and moderate knee OA, as the benefits of IA-HA are apparent within the patient population with mild to moderate knee OA. The finding...
