OBJECTIVES: Behçet's disease (BD) has been recognized as an unclassified type of vasculitis with an accompanying tendency to thrombosis. No disease-specific pathology has been demonstrated so far to explain the prothrombotic state, and this predisposition is considered to be associated with endothelial activation/dysfunction. P-selectin glycoprotein ligand-1 (PSGL-1) variable number of tandem repeat (VNTR) polymorphism has an impact on the protein length, and heterozygosity affect of the PSGL-1 to P-selectin interaction, which has been found to be associated with an increased risk of thrombosis in patients with antiphospholipid syndrome...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Comparison between the effect of sonographic guided and blind knee injection of hyaluronic acid has been evaluated in this study. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Sixty-one patients with primary knee osteoarthritis were randomly allocated into two groups and received intrabursal injection of hyaloronic acid over 3 weeks. The difference between baseline amounts of Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC), Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score and visual analogue scale (VAS) score and these amounts after 6 and 12 weeks were calculated and subsequently compared between the two groups...

OBJECTIVE: A feasibility study to assess efficacy and safety of modified release (MR) prednisone (Lodotra™) compared to immediate release (IR) prednisolone in patients with newly diagnosed giant cell arteritis (GCA). METHODS: Twelve patients with new diagnosis of GCA were initially treated with high-dose prednisolone (40-60 mg) daily for 4 weeks and then randomized to two open arms to continue tapering steroid treatment with either standard IR prednisolone or MR prednisone...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the features of exceptional coexisting Takayasu arteritis (TA) and sarcoidosis, two conditions of unknown cause associated with a common immunologic pattern. METHODS: We report seven cases of concomitant sarcoidosis-Takayasu or Takayasu-like vasculitis, observed in two referral centers between 1995 and 2015. RESULTS: All patients were female. The mean age at sarcoidosis diagnosis and TA diagnosis was 36 and 37 years, respectively...

AIM: Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM) comprise a group of rare and heterogeneous diseases difficult to diagnose and follow up. Precise measures for assessing disease activity are not available at the moment. Our objective was to evaluate the usefulness of ultrasonography (US) as a monitoring tool in IIM. METHOD: The study evaluated IIM patients diagnosed and followed up from 2005 to 2015 in our department. Fifteen patients with a mean age of 52.2 ± 22...

AIM: We investigated whether clinical manifestations, anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCAs), Birmingham vasculitis activity score (BVAS) for granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) and five factor score (FFS) at diagnosis can predict relapse or refractory disease in 30 histology-proven GPA patients with follow-up duration ≥ 12 weeks. METHODS: We reviewed the medical records of 30 GPA patients. We collected clinical data, ANCAs, BVAS for GPA, FFSs at diagnosis, and we compared variables between the two groups based on relapse or refractory disease...

AIM: The relationship between bone mineral density (BMD) and osteoarthritis (OA) remains controversial. This study aimed to explore the cross-sectional associations between BMD at the total body, hip and spine and joint structural abnormalities including cartilage defects and bone marrow lesions (BMLs) in patients with knee OA. METHOD: One hundred and eight-five subjects with symptomatic knee OA were included in this study. T2-weighted fast spin echo magnetic resonance imaging was used to assess knee cartilage defects and BMLs...

BACKGROUND: Lupus nephritis (LN) is a feared complication of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Renal biopsy is valuable to assess disease severity and prognosis, but no histological data are available for Indigenous Australians (IA). We compared histopathology between IA and non-IA patients (NI) with LN in northern Australia and describe main outcomes. METHODS: Retrospective cohort study of all patients with biopsy evidence of LN at Royal Darwin Hospital over a 10-year period...

AIM: Management of osteoarthritis (OA) is basically symptomatic. Recently, stem cells (SC) have been used in the search for an optimum treatment. We decided to conduct a controlled clinical trial to determine if a single intra-articular injection of in vivo stimulated bone marrow SC could lead to an improvement in pain management and quality of life in patients with knee OA. METHOD: This was a prospective, open-label, phase I/II clinical trial to assess the safety and efficacy of a single intra-articular injection of autologous stimulated bone marrow stem cells (BM-SC) in patients with knee OA...

INTRODUCTION: Data regarding the prevalence, risk factors and outcome of scleroderma renal crisis (SRC) in Asian patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) are limited. OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence, risk factors and outcomes of SRC in Thai SSc patients. METHOD: Medical records of all SSc patients seen at the Division of Rheumatology, Chiang Mai University, Thailand, from January 1990 to December 2015 were retrospectively reviewed. For each SRC case, a disease duration (±1 year) matched control (four SSc patient without SRC for each SRC patient) was identified...

INTRODUCTION: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a clinically heterogeneous chronic inflammatory disorder characterized by synovitis leading to joint destruction. Both genetic and environmental factors are involved in the pathogenesis of RA. Significant dysregulation of NKG2D, an activating receptor of natural killer and certain autoreactive T cells as well as its ligand major histocompatibility complex class I chain-related gene A (MICA) has been implicated in perpetuating the pathology of RA...

AIM: The objectives were to determine the frequency of in utero fetal death (IUFD) related to placental disorders and to assess the frequency of antiphospholipid antibodies syndrome (APS) among women referred to the internal medicine department. METHODOLOGY: A retrospective clinical study conducted in Rennes University Hospital, France. From January 2007 to December 2014, 53 women who presented an IUFD at 14 weeks or more of gestational age were included. The main cause for each IUFD was determined by expert agreement...

AIM: Previous research has shown that adiponectin (AD) induces severe insulin resistance (IR) and exhibits pro-inflammatory effect, so it could serve as a useful risk biomarker in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The present study aims to evaluate the effect of AD on IR and anti-arthritis in collagen-induced arthritic (CIA) rats. METHOD: After immunization with bovine type II collagen (CII), Wistar rats were administered with AD (60 μg/kg/day) or saline into the ankle joint cavity of the left hind leg for 15 days...
