Patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) are important to evaluate with new treatments.AIMS: To assess HRQoL in people with severe hemophilia B and their experience after switching to rFIXFc prophylaxis.METHODS: Participants completed a Patient Reported Outcomes Burden and Experience (PROBE) questionnaire on initiation and following...

The objective is to study the effect of this program on disease activity in patients with RA (randomized controlled trial [RCT] 1), on a risk score for developing RA in patients with anti-citrullinated protein antibody (ACPA) positive arthralgia (RCT 2) and on pain, stiffness, and function in patients with MSOA (RCT 3), all in comparison with usual care.We designed three 16-week observer-blind RCTs with a waiting-list control group for patients with RA with low to moderate disease activity (2.6 ≤ Disease Activity Score [DAS28] ≤ 5.1, RCT 1,n = 80), for patients at risk for RA, defined by ACPA-positive arthralgia (RCT...

This study compared outcomes from a 3-week in-patient MPMP between those who attended a group-based program that included 8 h of individual therapy each week and those who attended when the amount of individual therapy had been halved.MethodsParticipants were patients attending an MPMP with a large component of individual sessions (n = 112; Standard) and patients attending the same MPMP after it switched to predominantly group-based sessions (n = 117; Revised). The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) and Queen Elizabeth (QE) Health Scale were administered to participants at baseline and discharge. Regression analy...

AbstractIntroductionThe aim of this work is to assess the effect of upadacitinib versus adalimumab and placebo on patient-reported outcomes (PROs) in psoriatic arthritis (PsA) patients with inadequate responses to  ≥ 1 non-biologic disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (non-bDMARD-IR) in SELECT PsA-1.MethodsIn this placebo- and active comparator, phase 3 randomized, controlled trial, patients received daily upadacitinib 15 or 30  mg, placebo, or adalimumab 40 mg every other week through 56 weeks. At week 24, placebo-assigned patients were rerandomized to upadacitinib 15 or 30 mg. PROs ...

Conclusions Untreated chronic scaphoid nonunion leads to the development of degenerative arthritis over a period of years, which is still unpredictable. Most of the patients become aware of the nonunion following a precedent injury or other reasons. Most of the patients have fair/good functional outcome despite reduced range of movements and grip strength. Many do not favor surgical intervention in the course of nonunion. Chronic nonunions open a lot of unanswered questions. Clinical Relevance There have been numerous studies on the treatment aspects of scaphoid nonunion, with little knowledge about certain people with non...

Every few years someone, somewhere, announces that “it won’t be long before we have a treatment to rid the world of persistent pain.” And there’s a hiss and roar to celebrate this momentous finding, and much ado about how wonderful it will be. I’m still waiting. BUT I thought it might be an interesting thought experiment to wonder what might happen if a “cure” was available for fibromyalgia. As readers will know, I have lived with what eventually was named “fibromyalgia” since my early 20’s, and probably longer. I’ve dabbled in various treatments ove...

CONCLUSIONS: Where possible, objective measures should be used to assess PA and sleep of adults with OA and RA while particular self-report PA questionnaires should be used sparingly.PMID:34627194 | DOI:10.1186/s12889-021-11837-y
