OBJECTIVE: Dermatomyositis (DM) is an idiopathic inflammatory myopathy which often involves the lungs. DM is likely to be associated with aberrant T- and B-cell activation in the pathogenesis because of the proven effectiveness of T- and B-cell-targeted treatments. Assuming that the aberrant activation is reflected by biases in the lymphocyte subset repertoires, we aimed to elucidate these biases, especially in relation to clinical features of DM. METHOD: Based on the immunophenotyping standardized by the Human Immunology Project Consortium, untreated 13 DM patients, including seven patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD), and 18 age-matched healthy donors (HDs) were examined for proportions of peripheral blood lymphocyte subsets...

OBJECTIVE: The aim was to investigate prevalence and degree of ocular and oral involvement in patients with primary Sjögren's syndrome (PSS). METHOD: We analysed 134 participants from the Korean Initiative of PSS cohort who completed a 2 year follow-up oral and ocular sign test. The severity of keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) was determined with the Schirmer I test value (STV) [abnormal (AB) ≤ 5 mm/5 min; normal (N) > 5 mm/5 min]. Salivary gland dysfunction (SGD) was determined by unstimulated whole salivary (UWS) flow rate [moderate to severe (MS) < 0...

OBJECTIVE: FURIN is a proprotein convertase enzyme that inhibits the proinflammatory function of T cells and myeloid cells. Elevated FURIN expression levels have been reported in immune-mediated diseases, such as primary Sjögren's syndrome. Here, we investigated the levels of FURIN in peripheral blood (PB) and synovial fluid (SF) leucocytes from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHOD: FURIN mRNA expression in PB and SF cells was determined by quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction and FURIN plasma levels were measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the strength of the effect of cardiovascular risk factors on the incidence of giant cell arteritis (GCA) in a general population context. METHOD: Data from the Reykjavik Study (RS), a population-based cohort study focusing on cardiovascular disease, were used. Everyone born in 1907-1935 living in Reykjavik, Iceland, or adjacent communities on 1 December 1967 were invited to participate. Subjects attended a study visit in 1967-1996 and information on cardiovascular risk factors [smoking habits, blood pressure, diabetes, body mass index (BMI), and serum cholesterol] was obtained...

OBJECTIVES: Touch screens for entering patient-reported outcomes (PROs) are available at all Danish departments of rheumatology reporting to the nationwide DANBIO registry. This project comprises two substudies in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or axial spondyloarthritis (AxSpA), aiming to (A) investigate the feasibility of first line patient recruitment for research via touch screens, and (B) compare PROs collected at hospital versus at home, including patient preferences. METHOD: Substudy A: using a touch screen, patients answered whether we could contact them about a clinical research project (yes/no)...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate temporal changes in structural progression assessed by serial conventional radiography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the sacroiliac joints (SIJs) and spine in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) treated with tumour necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitor for 5 years. METHOD: Forty-two patients were included and 33 patients were followed for 5 years in a prospective investigator-initiated study. Conventional radiographs were required four times and MRI seven times...

OBJECTIVE: In the 2016 American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism classification criteria for primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS), pre-existing lymphoma is not an exclusion criterion for pSS diagnosis, as in earlier criteria. We aimed to explore whether there are differences between pSS patients with and without pre-existing lymphoma at pSS diagnosis. METHOD: Patients with ICD-7-10 codes for Sjögren's syndrome (SS) and a diagnosis of malignant lymphoma before or after SS diagnosis were identified by linking the Swedish Patient Register 1964-2007 with the Cancer Register 1990-2007 (n = 224)...

OBJECTIVE: Adalimumab (ADA) has become a valuable treatment option for juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). The importance of combination with methotrexate (MTX) is unclear. METHOD: Data from the German Biologics in Paediatric Rheumatology (BIKER) registry are reported. Response to treatment was analysed using JIA American College of Rheumatology (ACR) scores, 10-joint Juvenile Arthritis Disease Activity Score (JADAS10), and improvement of functional status and ACR inactive disease criteria...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to describe the clinical characteristics and treatment course of hypertrophic pachymeningitis (HPM) in patients with antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV). METHODS: We retrospectively analysed 15 patients (11 men and four women). HPM was diagnosed based on thickening and enhancing of the brain and/or spinal dura mater on gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) T1 sequence. RESULTS: The median age at HPM onset was 60 years...

OBJECTIVE: The burden of disability associated with systemic sclerosis (SSc) is being increasingly recognized. Our aim was to test the hypothesis that changes in functional ability over time differ between patients with limited (lcSSc) and diffuse cutaneous (dcSSc) subtypes, and that in dcSSc (but not lcSSc) these changes correlate with skin thickening. METHOD: This was a retrospective analysis of data collected prospectively between 2005 and 2016 at a single centre...

MULTICENTER STUDY

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to determine the prevalence of widespread pain (WP) in women with early rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and to compare physical function, activity limitations, health-related quality of life, mental distress, and disease activity between women with WP and non-widespread pain (NWP). METHOD: This cross-sectional study included 102 women with early RA. Participants were provided with self-reported questionnaires quantifying activity limitations, physical activity, pain intensity, health-related quality of life, and fatigue...

OBJECTIVES: Idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis (iRPF) is an uncommon disease with inflammatory features. Most patients have good prognosis but some may relapse or even progress to chronic renal failure. The aims of the study were to investigate the prognosis of a large cohort of iRPF patients and explore the risk factors for poor outcomes. METHODS: All patients with a definite diagnosis of iRPF in Peking University First Hospital between 1 January 2003 and 31 December 2016 were enrolled...
