OBJECTIVES: This prospective study aimed to compare synovial ultrasound scores to conventional measures (DAS28, CRP levels) in predicting radiographic progression in patients with rheumatoid arthritis under TNF antagonist therapy. METHODS: Patients with RA who received TNF antagonist therapy were enrolled, all of whom underwent clinical, laboratory, and ultrasonographic assessments with grayscale and power Doppler assessments of bilateral elbows (anterior and posterior recess), wrists (dorsal, palmar, and ulnar aspects), second and third MCP joints (dorsal and palmar recess), and PIP II and III (dorsal and palmar) at baseline and at 1, 3 months...

OBJECTIVE: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, autoimmune disease characterized by joint destruction. Tofacitinib is an oral Janus kinase inhibitor for the treatment of RA. This post hoc analysis assessed the safety of tofacitinib in Latin American (LA) patients with RA versus the Rest of World (RoW) population. METHODS: Data were pooled from 14 clinical studies of tofacitinib: six Phase 2, six Phase 3 and two long-term extension studies. Incidence rates (IRs; patients with events/100 patient-years of treatment exposure) were calculated for safety events of special interest combined across tofacitinib doses...

BACKGROUND: Sulfasalazine (SSZ), which has an arylamine sulfonamide structure, is an anti-inflammatory drug used in the treatment of many rheumatic diseases. Various adverse effects have been reported related to SSZ. In the present study, we aimed to define the frequency of SSZ-related hypersensitivity reaction in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. METHODS: A total of 136 patients were included in this study. During follow-ups, reaction type, reaction duration, and drug doses were recorded in patients who developed hypersensitivity reactions...

OBJECTIVE: To compare perceptions of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) to those of their families regarding pain and subjective experience of the disease. METHODS: It was a monocentric study, including 120 RA patients (according to the American College of Rheumatology criteria). The questionnaires were developed during meetings of RA patients, rheumatologists, and methodologists while referring to the literature. The patient questionnaire comprised 22 items organized in 4 sections: pain, perceived experience of the disease, activity restrictions, and help received...

Coexistence between two or more immunological-mediated diseases implies a clinical and therapeutic challenge that is uncommon in the clinical field. We report a rare case of a young patient with amyopathic juvenile dermatomyositis and erythrodermic psoriasis, with an excellent response to ustekinumab.

BACKGROUND: Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a chronic multisystem connective tissue disorder with detrimental impact on quality of life. Patients with SSc face emotional distress and frequently meet criteria for a psychiatric disorder. However, the pattern of psychiatric manifestations may vary according to socioethnic background. OBJECTIVES: We investigated the prevalence of depressive and anxiety symptoms and examined their association with sociodemographic and clinical factors in Iranian SSc patients...

Nimish Mehta, Lynne Kolton Schneider, Emilie McCardell
The overall goal of therapy for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is to achieve low disease activity or remission and to prevent or control joint damage, prevent loss of function, and decrease pain. However, many patients with RA do not have the disease adequately controlled, and only a minority attain consistent remission. To successfully treat to target, rheumatologists need practical guidance to select monotherapy and combination therapy regimens based on available data. Differences in study design, dosing regimens, and data from defined and specific patient populations pose challenges to clinicians who treat patients with diverse characteristics and needs...

Hydroxychloroquine is the cornerstone of medical therapy in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). We report a case of erythema multiforme in association with this medication in a 25-year-old white woman with SLE. We provide a detailed review of the reported cases in the literature of hydroxychloroquine-induced severe cutaneous adverse reactions. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of hydroxychloroquine-induced erythema multiforme in the setting of SLE.
