BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine whether reducing the dose of supplemental folic acid used in conjunction with methotrexate (MTX) therapy in people with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) improved disease control and/or increased MTX-related adverse effects. METHODS: A randomized double-blind randomized controlled trial comparing 5 mg/wk and 0.8 mg/wk folic acid was undertaken. Rheumatoid arthritis patients on MTX for 3 months or more at a stable dose for 1 month or more were recruited...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: There is evidence supporting that there are no relevant clinical differences between dosing rituximab 1000 mg or 2000 mg per cycle in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients in clinical trials, and low-dose cycles seem to have a better safety profile. Our objective was to describe the pattern of use of rituximab in real-life practice conditions. METHODS: Rituximab for RA in clinical practice (RITAR) study is a retrospective cohort study from 2005 to 2015...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine which analgesics are used by patients with osteoarthritis (OA)-related pain and how the analgesics are used in the preceding month. In addition, their beliefs about (pain) medication and the rationale of those declining to use analgesics were explored. METHODS: An online cross-sectional survey was sent to 1521 patients participating in the panel of the Dutch Arthritis Foundation. Descriptive analyses and logistic regression were used to analyze data...

BACKGROUND: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic systemic inflammatory disease that can progressively restrict spinal mobility. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to investigate how smoking cessation by AS patients affects disease activity and their psychological state, physical mobility, lung function, and quality of life. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a prospective, single-blind, controlled, and observational study on 92 AS patients. Pulmonary function test, Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index (BASDAI), Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index, Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index, chest expansion, Short-Form 36, and Ankylosing Spondylitis Quality of Life were evaluated...

OBJECTIVE: To review the evidence for benefits and harms of folate (folic acid or folinic acid) supplementation on methotrexate (MTX) treatment for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), to assess whether or not folate supplementation would reduce MTX toxicity or reduce MTX benefits, and to decide whether a higher MTX dosage is essential. METHODS: We performed a sensitive search strategy and searched systematically the Medline, Embase, Web of Science and Cochrane Library databases from inception to 2 June 2016...

OBJECTIVE: Hyperuricemia has been epidemiologically associated with multiple comorbidities including chronic renal failure and cardiovascular disease. Cause and effect are difficult to address, given comorbidities associated with and prevalence of metabolic syndrome. One impediment to achieving serum uric acid (sUa) levels less than or equal to 6.0 mg/DL is the concept that allopurinol might be nephrotoxic. We examined the relation of sUa less than or equal to 6.0 mg/dL to renal function over time...

INTRODUCTION: Musculoskeletal ultrasonography (US) is an objective tool for the evaluation of disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. There is no consensus on the exact number of joints that should be examined. Examination of reduced joint count is more practical than the comprehensive one. OBJECTIVES: This is a cross-sectional study investigated the validity of a 7-joint US score (US7) in assessment of joint inflammation in RA patients compared with a simplified 12-joint US score (US12) and correlated both to composite disease activity indices...

OBJECTIVE: Although several autoantibodies have been identified for polymyositis/dermatomyositis (PM/DM) diagnosis, the clinical impact of these antibodies is yet to be elucidated. METHODS: Patients with PM/DM at Okayama University Hospital from 2012 to 2016 were historically enrolled, and antibody profiles were analyzed using line immunoassay. Hierarchical cluster analysis was performed based on serological analysis of anti-aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase (ARS) antibodies, including anti-Jo-1, PL-7, PL-12, EJ, OJ, and SS-A/Ro-52 antibodies...

BACKGROUND: Mobile health applications (apps) have the potential to help individuals with chronic illnesses learn about, monitor, and manage their condition, but these apps are largely unexamined, with the state and direction of development unclear. OBJECTIVE: We performed a systematic review of publicly available apps, directed toward individuals with rheumatoid arthritis (RA); described their current features; and determined areas of unmet need. METHODS: We searched the iTunes and Google Play App Stores for the term "arthritis" and reviewed the descriptions of these apps for specific mentions of RA...
