Dupuytren’s Disease and exposure to vibration: systematic review and Meta-analysis
Conclusion: Age and environmental factors had no effect on DD prevalence among patients exposed to vibrations, despite a 10% prevalence in this group. Using vibration tools at work should be recognized as an important risk factor of developing DD. (Source: Joint Bone Spine)

Predictors of fatal and non-fatal cardiovascular events in ANCA-associated vasculitis: data from the Toronto CanVasc cohort
Conclusions: In this cohort of patients with granulomatosis with polyangiitis and eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis, both traditional and disease related risk factors were predictive of cardiovascular events. Further prospective studies should elucidate the impact of these and other modifiable risk factors on cardiovascular risk in ANCA-associated vasculitis. (Source: Joint Bone Spine)

Origins of rheumatoid arthritis
Publication date: Available online 5 December 2019Source: Joint Bone SpineAuthor(s): Marie-Christophe Boissier, Jérome Biton, Luca Semerano, Patrice Decker, Natacha BessisABSTRACTWhile the exact cause of rheumatoid arthritis is unknown, several mechanisms have been described extensively. The genetic predisposition for this autoimmune disease is largely attributed to MHC class II genes, especially the main polymorphism in the HLA shared epitope. Non-genetic factors account for the rest. The best known are autoantigens to citrullinated or carbmylated proteins, although there are many others. They are recognized by an ...

Is hip osteoarthritis preventable?
Publication date: Available online 4 December 2019Source: Joint Bone SpineAuthor(s): Alice Courties, Francis BerenbaumAbstractOne quarter of 45-year-old adults will develop symptomatic hip osteoarthritis (OA). Therefore, hip OA affects a very significant number of patients and, together with knee OA, is associated with increased cardiovascular mortality. Primary prevention involves the identification and management of its modifiable risk factors. Those that we know of today include anatomical abnormalities, joint trauma, certain occupations and, to a lesser extent, obesity. Screening for hip dysplasia as early as possible,...

Epstein-Barr virus-associated primary central nervous system lymphoma in a patient with diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis on long-term mycophenolate mofetil
ConclusionBecause of a favorable toxicity profile, MMF is increasingly being used as long-term immunomodulatory therapy for a wide variety of autoimmune disorders. Nevertheless, patients on long-term MMF should still undergo regular CNS surveillance, not only for opportunistic infections but also for opportunistic malignancies such as PCNSL. Progressive focal or non-focal neurological deficits should always raise the alarm. Prompt evaluation and management can prevent irreversible neurological sequelae. (Source: Joint Bone Spine)
