OBJECTIVES: To determine the relationship between synovitis detected on non-contrast-enhanced (non-CE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), biochemical markers of inflammation, and clinical assessment of effusion in people with knee osteoarthritis (OA). METHOD: We examined data from the OA Biomarkers Consortium within the Osteoarthritis Initiative (n = 600). Non-CE MRIs were semi-quantitatively scored (grades 0-3) for severity of Hoffa synovitis and effusion synovitis...

OBJECTIVE: The epidemiology of polyautoimmunity in Sjögren's syndrome (secondary Sjögren's syndrome - sSS) is not well defined and has not been investigated before using a systematic approach. We conducted a systematic review of the epidemiology of sSS associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), scleroderma, and myositis, assessing the prevalence rates (PRs) and clinical and serological features of sSS. METHOD: A systematic literature search of PubMed and Embase databases (updated to March 2016) was performed to identify all published data on PR, demographic profile, clinical manifestations, laboratory features, and causes of death associated with sSS...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of high-intensity exercise on emotional distress, fatigue, and ability to do a full day's activities in patients with axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA). METHOD: A total of 28 physically inactive axSpA patients were randomized to either an exercise group (EG), which performed 12 weeks of cardiorespiratory and strength exercises, or a control group (CG), which received treatment as usual. The outcomes reported in this paper are secondary outcomes in the trial and included emotional distress (General Health Questionnaire-12, 0-36, 36 = worst), fatigue [numeric rating scale (NRS), 0-10, 10 = worst], and ability to do a full day's activities (NRS, 0-10, 10 = worst)...

OBJECTIVE: Surveys of treatment results of gout in primary care have shown that less than 25% of patients reach the recommended treatment target (serum urate < 0.36 mmol/l). The aim of this study was to measure the results of a specialized European League Against Rheumatism/American College of Rheumatology (EULAR/ACR) guidelines-based treatment of gout in a rheumatology clinic. METHOD: Data from consecutive new crystal-proven gout patients were analysed in a prospective observational study...

OBJECTIVE: The aim was to obtain a better understanding of the relationship between exposure to glucocorticoids (GCs) and adverse events (AEs) reported in a randomized controlled trial (RCT) in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients. METHOD: We used data from the BLISS-76 trial on belimumab. The data were accessed through an agreement under the SHARE mechanism. AEs were grouped according to medical relevance, i.e. based on similarity of symptoms and pathophysiology...

OBJECTIVES: Behçet's disease (BD) is a systemic inflammatory disorder with remissions and exacerbations. It is thought that defects in the natural killer (NK) cell repertoire may be involved in BD through killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIRs). This study aimed to evaluate KIR and HLA genes, their interactions in BD patients, and their associations with clinical manifestations. METHOD: The presence or absence of KIR and HLA alleles and genotypes was analysed by polymerase chain reaction sequence-specific primer on genomic DNA of 397 BD patients and 300 healthy controls...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the impact of patient-reported flares on radiographic damage and disability in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHOD: Patients with low-active (Disease Activity Score based on 28-joint count with C-reactive protein < 3.2) RA were followed for 2 years. Based on annual questionnaires about incidence of flares, three 'flare phenotypes' were distinguished: no flares (NF), transient flares (TF), and a mixed category reporting persistent joint complaints (PJC) in at least one year...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate bone changes in the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joints of anti-citrullinated peptide antibody (ACPA)-positive patients with arthralgia, but not arthritis, compared to healthy controls. METHOD: Using a cross-sectional study design, patients were recruited from hospitals and private care rheumatologists, and controls from a test subject website. All subjects underwent medical history interview, clinical examination, and biochemical screening including ACPA...

OBJECTIVES: Anxiety and depression symptoms are more common in patients with spondyloarthritis (SpA) than in the general population. This study describes prognostic factors for change in self-reported anxiety and depression over 2 years in a well-defined SpA cohort. METHOD: In 2009, 3716 adult patients from the SpAScania cohort received a postal questionnaire to assess quality of life (QoL) and physical and mental functioning. A follow-up survey was performed in 2011...

OBJECTIVES: Available evidence suggests that genetic factors and overweight play major roles in the aetiology of osteoarthritis (OA). We analysed the association of 18 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) from nine adipokine and adipokine receptor genes (LEP, LEPR, ADIPOQ, RETN, NAMPT, SERPINA12, ITLN1, RARRES2, and APLN) with radiographic hand OA. METHOD: The study design was cross-sectional. Bilateral hand radiographs of 542 occupationally active Finnish female dentists and teachers aged 45-63 years were examined and classified for the presence of hand OA using reference images...

OBJECTIVE: To characterize patients with both monosodium urate (MSU) and calcium pyrophosphate (CPP) crystals in their synovial fluid (SF). METHOD: Forty-nine gout patients with acute arthritis were included. Those patients with MSU crystals only in their SF were compared to those patients with both MSU and CPP crystals in their SF. RESULTS: A total of 36 out of 49 patients (73.5%) had only MSU crystals, whereas 13 out of 49 (26.5%) had both MSU and CPP crystals in their SF...

OBJECTIVES: Patients with rheumatic disease (RD) have an increased mortality risk compared with the general population, mainly due to cardiovascular disease (CVD). We aimed to identify patients at high risk of CVD and mortality by comparing three screening tools suitable for clinical practice. METHOD: In this prospective, single-centre study, consecutive patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic autoimmune disease (SAI), or spondyloarthritides (SpA) including psoriatic arthritis underwent a comprehensive cardiovascular risk assessment...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate Raynaud's phenomenon (RP) and its impact on daily life activities during 1 year of follow-up in early systemic sclerosis (SSc). METHOD: Fourteen SSc patients with a median disease duration of 2 years were enrolled in the study. Every 7 weeks the patients completed a 7 day diary documenting the frequency and duration of RP attacks, the activity causing the attack, and how they handled the attack. The patients also recorded in the diary daily self-assessments of the difficulties with RP, using a 0-10 ordinal scale according to the Raynaud's Condition Score...
