Objectives To determine the efficacy of Phosphorus-32 radiation synovectomy in the treatment of patients with severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA) unresponsive to systematic or local medical therapy. Methods Twenty-three knees in 16 patients with severe chronic RA were prospectively treated by intra-articular installation of Phosphorus-32 and evaluated at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months. The Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis index (WOMAC), visual analog scale (VAS), Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ), pain scale, and grade of joint effusion and tenderness were assessed.

Guo-Ying Zhou The root of Gentiana straminea Maxim. (Gentianaceae), is officially listed as “Qin-Jiao” in the Chinese Pharmacopoeia for the treatment of rheumatic arthritis, icteric hepatitis, constipation, pain, and hypertension. To establish the geographical origin traceability in G. straminea, its chemical profiles were determined by a UPLC-Q exactive mass spectrometer, from which 43 compounds were identified by comparing retention times and mass spectrometry. Meanwhile, a pair of isomers (loganin and secologanol) was identified by mass spectrometry based on their fragmentation pathway. A total...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo review how peripheral inflammation in rheumatic disease influences the central nervous system. We consider recent studies of rheumatic disease that employ functional and structural neuroimaging in the context of inflammation, as well as recent studies considering how immunosuppressive therapy is associated with changes in brain function and structure.Recent FindingsThe most compelling evidence thus far comes from studies of rheumatoid arthritis and indicates that higher levels of inflammation are associated with changes in cognitive, affective, and pain-processing brain regions, some of which ma...

Authors: Di Carlo M, Muto P, Benfaremo D, Luchetti MM, Atzeni F, Salaffi F Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the prevalence and factors associated with the neuropathic pain features in a cohort of patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA). METHODS: A cross-sectional evaluation was conducted in consecutive patients suffering from PsA with prevalent peripheral joint involvement, referring to three rheumatological centers. For each patient a comprehensive assessment of disease activity, physical function, and disease impact was carried out. The presence of comorbid fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) was evaluated. Acute phas...
