A Randomized Internet-Based Pilot Feasibility and Planning Study of Cherry Extract and Diet Modification in Gout
Objective The aim of this study was to conduct a 9-month pilot Internet randomized controlled trial (RCT) of cherry extract and diet modification in gout to assess the feasibility of an Internet study and obtain effect estimates. Methods After providing online informed consent in response to Internet advertisements and social media or clinic flyers, 84 people with physician-confirmed gout were randomized to either cherry extract 3,600 mg/d (n = 41) or dietitian-assisted diet modification for gout (n = 43). All study outcomes were collected via Internet and phone calls. The primary objective was the feasibility of an I...

Performance of Anti–Topoisomerase I Antibody Testing by Multiple-Bead, Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay and Immunodiffusion in a University Setting
Conclusions Multiple-bead assays have a high rate of false-positive results for the anti–topo I antibody in patients without clinical evidence of SSc. A stepwise approach of confirmation of positive multiple-bead assay results using both ELISA and ID improves the predictive value of antibody testing for the diagnosis of SSc.

Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis, Associated Morbidity, and Healthcare Utilization: A University Hospital Experience
Conclusions Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis is a diagnosis with significant morbidity, despite being commonly viewed as asymptomatic. A majority of DISH patients had chronic back pain, and a large proportion required spinal surgery, although there may be several confounders. Future research is needed to systematically assess healthcare utilization by DISH patients. (Source: JCR: Journal of Clinical Rheumatology)

Conclusions The coexistence of JHS and SpA is rare but important to recognize. These patients are difficult to diagnose as they may present late because of preserved spinal movements. It is unclear whether the preserved flexibility masks the true extent of disease or whether clinically they represent a less severe disease phenotype. (Source: JCR: Journal of Clinical Rheumatology)

Medication Adherence in Chinese Patients With Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
Conclusions This is the first time to evaluate demographic, clinical, and psychological related factors for medication adherence in Chinese SLE patients using SLEDAI and Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale. Our study showed that 56.9% of SLE patients were not adherent, and education, SLEDAI, and depression were significantly related to medication adherence in SLE. These findings suggested that it was necessary to pay more attention to medication adherence of SLE patients, especially those with lower level of education, higher score of SLEDAI, and depression by effective intervention to improve SLE patients' adherence, ...

Association of High-Sensitivity Troponin T With Left Ventricular Dysfunction in Ankylosing Spondylitis
In this study, we aimed to investigate any relationship between hs-cTnT and left ventricular (LV) function evaluated via tissue Doppler imaging in AS patients with no known cardiac risk factor. Methods Our study used a cross-sectional case protocol design and was conducted between January 2016 and June 2016. In total, 40 AS patients (17 females and 23 males) were age and sex matched with healthy volunteers (20 females and 20 males) and enlisted for this study. Detailed transthoracic echocardiography was performed, and tissue Doppler imaging was used to assess systolic and diastolic functions. High-sensitivity cardiac tr...

Serum Interleukin 35 Levels in Systemic Sclerosis and Relationship With Clinical Features
In this study, we aimed to evaluate serum IL-35 levels in systemic sclerosis (SSc) patients and its potential relation with clinical findings. Methods We conducted a cross-sectional analysis of 70 SSc patients and 29 healthy volunteers in a single center in 5 months' period. Extension of skin fibrosis was evaluated by using modified Rodnan skin score. Disease severity was assessed by Medsger disease severity scores. Serum IL-35 was measured using a commercial enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kit (Cloud-Clone Corp, Wuhan, China). The relationship between IL-35 levels and clinical and laboratory parameters was in...
