Phys Med Biol. 2021 Sep 13. doi: 10.1088/1361-6560/ac262a. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVE: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a disabling systemic disease that seriously threatens the patient's quality of life. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is highly preferred in clinical diagnosis due to its high contrast and tissue resolution. However, since the uncertainty and intensity inhomogeneous of the AS lesions in MRI, it is still challenging and time-consuming for doctors to quantify the lesions to determine the grade of the patient's condition. Thus, an automatic AS grading method is presented in this study, which integ...

ConclusionsOur study shows that HLA-B*2704 has an overwhelming frequency in southeastern Chinese Han AS patients. A combined analysis including previous studies of HLA-B*27-subtype distributions in Chinese Han populations showed that HLA-B*2704 may originate from the southern Han and then migrate and spread to the northern areas, and HLA-B*2705 show the opposite result.

AbstractThe aim of this study was to investigate the effects of lockdown on the mental health (anxiety and depression) and quality of life (QOL) of people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and ankylosing spondylitis (AS) in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and public health measures instituted at a national level by the New Zealand Government. The present cohort was 104 individuals with RA (73.1%) and AS (26.9%) who had previously completed surveys for the Patient Opinion Real-Time Anonymous Liaison (PORTAL) project in 2018. Participants completed an online survey between July and September 2020 assessing their experience...

ConclusionsOccurrence of rh-irAEs during ICI use is higher in patients with pre-existing rheumatic disease compared to those with no pre-existing rheumatic disease. However, the most common events were not definitive rheumatic diseases but rather symptoms, such as pain in joints. Occurrence of events associated with a rheumatologist provider was substantially lower, suggesting that either patients are not referred to a rheumatologist or referral does not result in confirmation of the diagnosis by the rheumatologist.
