Oral CBD Fails to Relieve Pain from Hand OA & PsA

NEW YORK (Reuters Health)—Lower doses of cannabidiol (CBD) failed to provide any meaningful reduction in pain when added to other analgesic therapy in patients with hand osteoarthritis (OA) or psoriatic arthritis (PsA) in a randomized, placebo-controlled study from Denmark.1 Writing in the journal, Pain, Jonathan Vela, MD, and colleagues of Aalborg University note that CBD...

CONCLUSIONS: The current review showed that different types of arthritis has different causes and pathogeneses. Pain in joints is a major and common symptom in all types of arthritis. Arthritis is managed pharmacologically and nonpharmacologically. Treatment is different for each class of arthritis according to its cause and symptoms.PMID:34144533

Conclusions: PET has the advantage of being able to detect degenerative joint changes at a molecular level even before the structural changes have taken place. Hence, it has superiority over other conventional imaging modalities to detect arthritis in the early stages as well as investigate multiple joints in a single scan. As the resolution of PET is relatively low, combining PET with CT provides structural information to better assess the joint. Quantifying disease activity has the benefit of surveilling disease activity over the course of time and monitoring treatment response, remission and relapse of the disease.

AbstractThe aim of the study is to analyze the characteristics of patients with rheumatic diseases applying for a Disability Certificate (DC). Every application for DC filed by patients of 16 years of age and older in the Health Secretariat of Junin, between 2012 and 2016, was analyzed regarding age, gender, rheumatic disease as the cause of disability, employment status, and health insurance coverage. Applications were examined as per two elements: inflammatory articular or systemic disease (IASD) versus degenerative diseases, regional or generalized pain syndromes (non-IASD). Based on the DCs accepted, a Disability Preva...

Authors: Harth M, Nielson WR Abstract INTRODUCTION: Most arthritides are associated with pain and psychological distress (clinically significant depression and anxiety). Pain and depression are mutually exacerbating; both may continue even when joint involvement appears well controlled. Area covered: There is strong evidence that arthritis-related stress impacts the central nervous system and, together with peripheral inflammatory changes, can cause central sensitization that can lead to chronic pain and worsening of affective distress. Cytokines and chemokines participate both in joint inflammation and in central ...
