Caring for patients with rheumatoid arthritis in the

Before development of the antibodies against citrullinated peptides (ACPA) test rheumatoid factor (RF) was the only laboratory test available to diagnose RA The ACPA test promotes early accurate diagnosis with a specificity of 90% to 97% On the other hand the RF test is relatively sensitive (70% to 75%) but rather nonspecific (as low as 50%) because other rheumatic and nonrheumatic

Aim of Work: Initial observations implied IgG rheumatoid factor (RF) to be common among Malaysian rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients We tested this hypothesis and used a multiethnic RA cohort (Malays Chinese and Indians) to investigate whether the IgG RF predominance might be genetically or environmentally determined Patients and Methods: 556 serum samples comprising 171 patients

Role of Liposome Size Surface Charge and PEGylation on

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic systemic progressive autoimmune disease The vascular permeability of inflamed joints in RA makes it a natural candidate for passive targeting similar to the enhanced permeability and retention (EPR) effect in solid tumors Thus various therapeutic drugs have been encapsulated in nanocarriers to achieve longer in vivo circulation times and improve RA

Ultra

A standard low-dosing schedule of rituximab (RTX 2 500 mg or 1 1000 mg) is as effective for active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) as the registered dose (2 1000 mg) Moreover several small uncontrolled studies suggest that even lower-dosed treatment with RTX also leads to good treatment response in patients with RA

Objective Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is highly prevalent in some Alaska Native and American Indian populations Quality indicators for RA have been proposed but these have not been widely implemented or used to assess RA care in Alaska Native or American Indian populations Methods Medical records were included if they met the following criteria: RA diagnosed before October 2000 fulfilling

Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) Uniprot number P01375 The previous assay for this analyte (also known as TNFα) was specific for the biologically active trimeric version of the protein only and exhibited relatively low detectabilty in many samples Since the majority of commercially available assays also detect TNF monomers and our customers have expressed a strong wish to be able to measure

Traditional Chinese medicine Biqi capsule compared with

Biqi capsule is a traditional Chinese medicine widely used as a complementary and alternative treatment for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) The objective is to understand the efficacy safety and mechanism of Biqi combined with methotrexate (MTX) in RA We present a randomized controlled pilot trial on Biqi combined with MTX against patients with active RA

Abdominal adiposity in rheumatoid arthritis: Association

Within the RA group rheumatoid factor seropositivity and higher cumulative prednisone exposure were significantly associated with a higher mean adjusted VFA Higher C-reactive protein levels and lower Sharp/van der Heijde scores were significantly associated with both VFA and SFA Conclusion The distribution of abdominal fat differs significantly by RA status Higher VFA in men with RA and

It was shown that NF-κB (nuclear factor κB) is a direct modulator of HIF-1α expression in the presence of normal oxygen pressure siRNA (small interfering RNA) studies for individual NF-κB members revealed differential effects on HIF-1α mRNA levels indicating that NF-κB can regulate basal HIF-1α expression Finally it was shown that when endogenous NF-κB is induced by TNFα (tumour
