Persistence of bDMARD therapy in Rheumatoid Arthritis after first-line TNF-inhibitor failure: the RECORD study of the Italian Society for Rheumatology
CONCLUSIONS: Among RA patients failing a first TNFi, switching is associated with marginally better persistence, in particular for ABA and RTX, with only marginal differences in patients on concurrent csDMARDs.PMID:35023421 | DOI:10.1080/03009742.2021.2003033 (Source: Scandinavian Journal of Rheumatology)

Adenosine receptor A2a blockade by caffeine increases IFN-gamma production in Th1 cells from patients with rheumatoid arthritis
CONCLUSION: Caffeine promotes IFN-γ production in Th1 cells from RA patients in vitro by competitive inhibition of adenosine receptor A2a. Excessive coffee consumption could contribute to T-cell activation and inflammation in RA.PMID:35023427 | DOI:10.1080/03009742.2021.1995956 (Source: Scandinavian Journal of Rheumatology)

Validation and characterization of venous thromboembolism diagnoses in the Swedish National Patient Register among patients with rheumatoid arthritis
CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates high validity for VTE diagnoses recorded in the NPR for patients with RA, thus confirming that the NPR may be used to identify prevalent VTE as well as incident VTE events in patients with RA. Our results further demonstrate that in patients with RA, diagnoses of VTE are only marginally influenced by work-up related to the rheumatic disease, suggesting a modest impact of surveillance or diagnostic bias.PMID:35023437 | DOI:10.1080/03009742.2021.2001907 (Source: Scandinavian Journal of Rheumatology)

Increased synovial galectin-3 induce inflammatory fibroblast activation and osteoclastogenesis in patients with rheumatoid arthritis
Scand J Rheumatol. 2022 Jan 13:1-9. doi: 10.1080/03009742.2021.1992860. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVE: Galectin-3 (Gal-3) has been suggested as a proinflammatory mediator in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). We aimed to study clinical and pathogenic aspects of Gal-3 in RA.METHOD: Plasma samples from healthy controls (n = 48) and patients with newly diagnosed, early RA were assayed for soluble Gal-3. In patients with chronic RA (n = 18), Gal-3 was measured in both plasma and synovial fluid. Synovial fluid mononuclear cells were used to purify fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLSs) and osteoclasts. Monocultures of FLSs and a...

Psoriatic arthritis, axial spondyloarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis in Norway: nationwide prevalence and use of biologic agents
CONCLUSION: In Norway, the combined prevalence of PsA, axSpA, and RA was over 1.5%. Reflecting the good overall access to highly effective but costly biologic treatments, more than a fourth of these patients used biologic agents, which corresponds to over 0.4% of Norwegian adult population.PMID:35014920 | DOI:10.1080/03009742.2021.1997436 (Source: Scandinavian Journal of Rheumatology)

Nevertheless, aerobic capacity improved significantly and satisfaction with accomplished changes was high. Nationwide implementation would require adaptations to improve feasibility.PMID:34788187 | DOI:10.1080/03009742.2021.1992845 (Source: Scandinavian Journal of Rheumatology)
