OBJECTIVE: To investigate serum interleukin-6 (IL-6), serum chitinase-3-like protein-1 (YKL-40), and plasma vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) as measures of disease activity and predictors of clinical remission and radiographic progression in two early rheumatoid arthritis (RA) randomized controlled trials (RCTs). METHOD: Treatment-naïve patients with early RA (< 6 months' duration) and active disease, participating in two investigator-initiated RCTs, were treated according to a predefined treat-to-target algorithm aiming at inflammatory control, using methotrexate (MTX) + cyclosporine versus MTX + placebo (CIMESTRA study, n = 150, 5 year follow-up) or MTX + adalimumab versus MTX + placebo (OPERA study, n = 180, 2 year follow-up)...

OBJECTIVES: Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are at increased risk of lymphoma. There is no biomarker to indicate future lymphoma risk in RA and it is not known whether factors associated with an increased risk of RA also confer an increased risk of lymphoma. We investigated whether anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (CCP) antibodies, other autoantibodies, and smoking, are associated with lymphoma development in RA. METHOD: From two population-based case-control studies, the Scandinavian Lymphoma Etiology (SCALE) study and the Epidemiological Investigation of Rheumatoid Arthritis (EIRA) I study, we identified lymphoma cases with a validated RA diagnosis (n = 50), to whom we matched study participants with RA but no lymphoma (n = 261), lymphoma but no RA (n = 257), and neither RA nor lymphoma (n = 233)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the cancer risk in a cohort of Finnish patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) when followed over the long term. METHOD: The cohort consisted of 182 female and 23 male SLE patients treated at the Helsinki University Central Hospital from 1967 to 1987. The cohort was linked to the Finnish Cancer Registry and followed for cancer incidence from 1967 to 2013. Standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) were calculated by dividing the number of observed cases by the number of expected cases for different types of cancer...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the intra- and inter-observer agreement of erosions detected and scored with cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) of bones in the hands and feet, and to compare CBCT with conventional radiography (CR) for assessment of bone erosions in patients with long-standing rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHOD: Thirty patients with long-standing RA from the Better Anti-Rheumatic PharmacOTherapy (BARFOT) cohort were examined with CBCT and CR of hands and feet at their 15 year follow-up...

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to describe sonographic structural and inflammatory changes in entheses of patients with recently diagnosed psoriatic arthritis (PsA), patients with established PsA, and young healthy volunteers, and to investigate whether the MAdrid Sonographic Enthesitis Index (MASEI) enables us to distinguish these groups in an extreme comparison. METHOD: New and established PsA patients and healthy volunteers (aged 20-30 years) were recruited. The triceps, quadriceps, patellar, Achilles and elbow extensor tendon insertion, and plantar fascia entheses were investigated sonographically for structural changes, erosions, calcifications, increased thickness, bursitis, and power Doppler (PD) signal according to the MASEI...

OBJECTIVES: This study compares the prevalence of radiological osteoarthritis (OA) in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM1) for > 45 years and controls, and explores the association with shoulder pain and glycaemic burden in patients with DM1. METHOD: The Dialong study is a cross-sectional, observational study with 30 years of historical data on long-term glycaemic control. We included 102 patients with DM1 and 73 diabetes-free controls. Demographic data, worst shoulder pain last week [numeric rating scale (NRS) 0-10], pain on abduction at examination (NRS 0-10), and current and historical glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) levels were collected...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the epidemiological, clinicolaboratory, imaging, and therapeutic characteristics of idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis (iRPF) in China. METHOD: All patients presenting to the Chinese People's Liberation Army General Hospital from October 1996 to July 2016 diagnosed with iRPF were included. Data were collected from medical records and the smoking index was calculated. Scheel radiological classification was used to assess the extent of soft-tissue density...

OBJECTIVE: To describe and expand the phenotype of anti-MDA5-associated rapidly progressive interstitial lung disease (MDA5-RPILD) in Canadian patients. METHOD: All proven cases of MDA5-RPILD hospitalized in the University of Montreal's affiliated centres from 2004 to 2015 were selected for inclusion. RESULTS: Of nine consecutive patients, RPILD was the presenting manifestation in seven, whereas two patients developed RPILD 2 years after the onset of arthritis and of chronic interstitial lung disease...

OBJECTIVES: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a progressive, systemic, inflammatory autoimmune disease that typically affects young adults. Uveitis is a common extra-articular manifestation of AS. Nevertheless, the magnitude of the risk of AS among patients with uveitis is not clear. The aim of this secondary retrospective cohort study was to investigate the risk of incident AS in patients with uveitis using data from a nationwide, population-based health claims research database. METHOD: Using Taiwan's National Health Insurance Research Database, we identified 6637 patients with uveitis between 2000 and 2012...

OBJECTIVE: A reduction in haemoglobin level is a frequent complication among rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. Hepcidin has been linked to disturbed erythropoiesis. The objective of this study was to investigate the longitudinal changes in hepcidin in patients with early RA. METHOD: Hepcidin plasma concentrations were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in patients with early RA (n = 80) and healthy volunteers (HV, n = 40). Haemoglobin and other iron-related proteins were also measured...
