Authors: Salemi M, Marchese G, Cordella A, Cannarella R, Barone C, Salluzzo MG, Calogero AE, Romano C Abstract Trisomy 21, also known as Down Syndrome (DS), is the most common chromosome abnormality and causes intellectual disability. Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) growth arrest-specific 5 (GAS5), whose differential expression has recently been reported in patients with Klinefelter syndrome, has been addressed to play a role in the development of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, vascular endothelial cells apoptosis and atherosclerosis, all being common features in patients with DS. Therefore, the aim of this stu...

Authors: Makkar R, Behl T, Kumar A, Nijhawan P, Arora S Abstract OBJECTIVES: Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease characterized by failure of spontaneous resolution of inflammation with lifetime perseverance, becoming one of the major causes of disability in millions of people. It is mainly characterized with progressive erosion of cartilage in response to formation of pannus leading to chronic polyarthritis and joint distortion. Early diagnosis and advances in molecular biology undoubtedly revolutionized therapeutic interventions in the past decade for better disease management. Despit...

AbstractSj ögren’s syndrome (SS) is a chronic autoimmune disease with a wide spectrum of possible organ involvement. Peripheral (PNS) and central nervous system (CNS)-related symptoms may occur in the course of the disease. The aim of this study was to compare the health-related quality of life (HR-QOL) in SS patients with and without peripheral neuropathy. The study involved 50 patients with primary Sjögren’s syndrome (pSS). All patients underwent neurological clinical examination followed by nerve conduction studies (NCS) and rheumatological examination. Thirty-six-item Short Form Health Survey ( SF...

A man who was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) five years ago sees his rheumatologist for a follow-up visit. Fortunately, his arthritis is well controlled through medication. He can walk and do all his daily activities without pain. But over the past six months, he’s been feeling short of breath when climbing stairs. He has an annoying dry cough, too. COVID-19? That’s ruled out quickly. But a CT scan of his chest reveals early fibrosis (scarring) of the lungs, most likely related to rheumatoid arthritis. “I can finally walk normally, and now I can’t breathe when I walk!” says the frust...

Exercise has been shown to increase myelin biomarkers such as klotho and PLP and improve clinical and pathological symptoms using the experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) model of multiple sclerosis (MS). In the present study, we evaluated whether 6  weeks of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) prior to induction of EAE increase klotho and/or PLP and attenuate the severity of symptoms and/or disease progression in EAE model. Our data demonstrate that HIIT increased klotho and PLP and decreased disability.

A 39-year-old right-handed agricultural service engineer developed rapidly evolving severe relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS). MRI showed multiple T2 hyperintensities throughout his neuroaxis (figure, A). Several lesions showed restricted diffusion, and 2 enhanced. He received steroids for each relapse, making a full recovery (Expanded Disability Status Score [EDSS] 0).

AbstractAimWe aimed to characterize work disability in patients with newly diagnosed rheumatic diseases and compare work characteristics between patients with rheumatic diseases and controls without rheumatic diseases at diagnosis.MethodsPatients with inflammatory arthritis (IA) and osteoarthritis (OA), surrogates for autoimmune and non ‐autoimmune rheumatic diseases, respectively, and controls of working age were surveyed at diagnosis. Patients with rheumatic diseases who were employed before symptom onset were characterized as having work disability if they reported reduced work ability and productivity while remaining...
