OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that non-HLA single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with the risk of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) are risk factors for an unfavourable disease outcome at long-term follow-up. METHODS: The Nordic JIA cohort is a prospective multicentre study cohort of patients from the Nordic countries. In all, 193 patients met the inclusion criteria of having an 8 year follow-up assessment and available DNA sample. Seventeen SNPs met the inclusion criteria of having significant associations with JIA in at least two previous independent study cohorts...

OBJECTIVE: This study investigates predictors of influenza and pneumococcal vaccine coverage among rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients, and explores possible differences according to type of RA therapy. METHOD: RA patients from two clinics in the region of Southern Denmark were informed about the survey during scheduled follow-up visits. The questionnaire included questions concerning previous influenza and pneumococcal vaccine uptake, attitudes about vaccination, and socio-demographic factors...

OBJECTIVES: To explore whether smoking and alcohol use are associated with hand osteoarthritis (OA) features in two different OA cohorts. METHOD: We studied 530 people with radiographic hand OA from the Musculoskeletal pain in Ullensaker STudy (MUST) and 187 people from the Oslo hand OA cohort [mean (sd) age 65 (8.0) and 62 (5.7) years, 71% and 91% women, respectively]. Smoking, alcohol use and hand pain were self-reported. Participants underwent conventional hand radiographs and ultrasound examination of 30 hand joints...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate changes in whole-body magnetic resonance imaging (WBMRI) inflammatory and structural lesions in most joints and entheses in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) treated with adalimumab. METHODS: WBMRI was obtained at weeks 0, 6, 16, and 52 in a 52 week follow-up study of 37 RA patients starting treatment with adalimumab. Readability and reliability of WBMRI were investigated for 76 peripheral joints, 23 discovertebral units, the sacroiliac joints, and 33 entheses...

OBJECTIVES: In rheumatoid arthritis (RA), the role of autoimmunity, especially anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide antibody (anti-CCP) level, and the time-course of left ventricular (LV) function is unknown. The objective was to assess LV function and the amount of coronary calcium in relation to anti-CCP levels in a cohort of treatment-naive RA patients, and to assess changes in these parameters during a 2 year follow-up period. METHOD: Sixty-six steroid- and disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug-naive RA patients were treated with methotrexate according to the Danish national guidelines...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the influence of geographic variation on the risk of digital ulcer (DU) development in systemic sclerosis (SSc) patients. METHODS: This cross-sectional, multicentre study evaluated patients with SSc from centres located in different geographic regions of Brazil (subtropical and tropical climate zones). Demographic and clinical data were collected. RESULTS: The study included 141 patients with SSc (26 from the subtropical and 115 from the tropical zone)...

OBJECTIVES: Pentraxin 3 (PTX3) is a locally produced multifunctional protein involved in inflammation, matrix deposition, and immunity. As patients with seropositive rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have a more severe disease course and higher risk of joint destruction than seronegative patients, the aim of the present study was to examine differences in PTX3 in synovial fluid (SF) (and serum) in seropositive compared to seronegative RA, and other local markers of inflammation and destruction...

OBJECTIVES: We investigated the performance of soluble tumour necrosis factor receptor-2 (sTNFR2) as a biomarker of renal activity, damage, treatment response, and long-term outcome in lupus nephritis (LN). METHOD: Serum sTNFR2 levels were assessed in 64 LN patients (52 proliferative, 12 membranous) before and after induction treatment, and in 314 non-lupus controls. In LN patients, renal biopsies were performed at baseline and post-treatment. Patients with ≥ 50% reduced proteinuria, normal or improved estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) by ≥ 25%, and inactive urinary sediment were considered clinical responders (CRs)...

OBJECTIVE: This study assessed the use of scintigraphy and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in identifying the presence and amount of tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) in the joint or skin of patients with psoriatic arthritis, to guide the course of treatment more efficiently. METHOD: We compared the results of scintigraphy and MRI in two patients with psoriatic arthritis who underwent technetium-99m ((99m)Tc)-anti-TNF-α scintigraphy, and MRI 5 days later. RESULTS: Greater uptake of (99m)Tc-anti-TNF-α was observed in the left wrist and right second metacarpal in patient 1, and in the left ulnocarpal joint and distal interphalangeal joint of the left first metacarpal in patient 2...

OBJECTIVE: A systematic review found that an average of 27% of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients using tumour necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors discontinue their treatment within 1 year. The aim of this study was to assess drug survival on TNF inhibitors among patients with RA. METHODS: Patients were identified from the National Register for Biologic Treatment in Finland (ROB-FIN), which is a longitudinal cohort study established to monitor the effectiveness and safety of biologic drugs in rheumatic diseases...
