OBJECTIVE: To establish the impact of uveitis on the Quality of Life (QOL) in adult patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). METHODS: Adult patients with a history of JIA, with (n=31) or without (n=51) chronic anterior uveitis, were included. Their scores on three validated QOL questionnaires (National Eye Institute Visual Functioning Questionnaire (NEI VFQ-25), Medical Outcomes Study 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) and EuroQol-5D (EQ-5D)) were analyzed to find factors that could influence QOL...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the nationwide prevalence and incidence of serious infections among children with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) enrolled in Medicaid, the U.S. health insurance program for low-income patients. METHODS: From Medicaid claims (2000-2006) we identified children 5 to <18 years old with SLE (≥3 ICD-9 codes of 710.0, each >30 days apart) and lupus nephritis (LN; ≥2 ICD-9 codes for kidney disease on/after SLE codes). From hospital discharge diagnoses, we identified infection subtypes (bacterial, fungal, viral)...

OBJECTIVE: Patients with RA often ask if specific foods, popularized as "inflammatory" or "anti-inflammatory," can improve or worsen their RA. We surveyed patients regarding diet and RA symptoms. METHODS: We mailed a diet survey to 300 subjects in a single-center RA registry at a large academic center. Subjects were asked whether they consume each of 20 foods and whether these foods make their RA symptoms better, worse, or unchanged. Semi-annual registry data include demographics, medications, comorbidities, and disease activity scores...

OBJECTIVE: To test the feasibility of a comprehensive behavioral intervention (CBI) program that combines intense exercises with an education program to be implemented at a later stage (3 months) post total knee replacement (TKR), and to get a first impression of the effects of the CBI as compared to a standard of care exercise (SCE) program on the outcomes of physical function and physical activity. METHODS: 44 subjects participated in a 3-month program of either CBI or SCE followed by 3 months of home exercise program...

OBJECTIVES: To assess 5-year progression of erosions and Joint Space Narrowing (JSN), and their associations with RF status in two large, multi-centre early-RA cohorts spanning 25-years. METHODS: Radiographic joint damage was recorded using the Sharp/van der Heijde (SvdH) method in the Early RA Study (ERAS) 1986-2001, and the Early RA Network (ERAN) 2002-2013. Mixed-effects negative-binomial regression estimated changes in radiographic damage over 5-years, including erosions and JSN separately...

OBJECTIVE: Peer-led support groups are an important resource for many people with scleroderma (systemic sclerosis; SSc). Little is known, however, about barriers to participation. The objective of this study was to identify reasons why some people with SSc do not participate in SSc support groups. METHODS: A 21-item survey was used to assess reasons for non-attendance among SSc patients in Canada and the United States. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) was conducted using the software MPlus 7 to group reasons for non-attendance into themes...

OBJECTIVES: Explore patients' and physical therapists' experience with Skype™ for exercise management of knee OA. METHODS: Qualitative study. The Donabedian model for quality assessment in health care (structure, process and outcomes) informed semi-structured individual interview questions. Twelve purposively-sampled patients with knee OA who received physical therapist-prescribed exercise over Skype™, and all therapists (n=8) who delivered the intervention, in a clinical trial were interviewed about their experiences...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Previous cross sectional studies have shown that rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients with fibromyalgia (FM) have higher disease activity, greater medical costs and worse quality of life compared to RA patients without FM. We determined the impact of FM on 2-year changes in functional status of RA patients in a prospective study. METHODS: Subjects included participants in the Brigham Rheumatoid Arthritis Sequential Study enrolled in a substudy of the effects of pain in RA...

OBJECTIVES: The current study investigated whether associations between pain and the additional symptoms associated with fibromyalgia are different in persons with chronic widespread (CWP) compared to multi-site pain (MSP), with or without joint areas. PATIENTS/METHODS: Six studies were utilized: 1958 British birth cohort, EpiFunD, Kid LBP, MUSICIAN, SHAMA and WHEST (females) studies. MSP was defined as the presence of pain in ≥8/≥10 body sites (adults/children) indicated on 4-view body manikins; conducted firstly to include joints (+joints) and secondly without (-joints)...

OBJECTIVES: Although childhood-onset proliferative lupus nephritis (cPLN) leads to significant morbidity and mortality, there is no trial evidence to support the treatment effectiveness of any therapy for cPLN. Marginal structural models (MSMs) enable us to estimate treatment effectiveness using observational data while accounting for confounding by indication. METHODS: We used prospectively collected data to examine the effect of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), compared to the use of other therapies, on the long-term outcome of our cPLN cohort (age at onset of PLN < 18 years)...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether lower thigh muscle specific strength increases risk of incident radiographic knee osteoarthritis (RKOA), and whether there exists a sex-specific relationship between thigh muscle specific strength and BMI. METHODS: 161 Osteoarthritis Initiative participants (62% female) with incident RKOA (Kellgren-Lawrence grade 0/1 at baseline, developing an osteophyte and joint space narrowing grade ≥1 by year 4) were matched to 186 controls (58% female) without incident RKOA...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the lifetime risk of total hip replacement surgery (THR) for osteoarthritis (OA) between countries, and over time. METHODS: Data on primary THR procedures performed for OA in 2003 and 2013 were extracted from national arthroplasty registries in Australia, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. Life tables and population data were also obtained for each country. Lifetime risk of THR was calculated for 2003 and 2013 using registry, life table and population data...

OBJECTIVE: To characterize the cutaneous and systemic clinical phenotype of dermatomyositis patients with anti-NXP-2 antibodies. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort analysis of 178 dermatomyositis patients seen at the Stanford University Clinic. Electronic chart review employing a keyword search strategy was performed to collect clinical and laboratory data. Anti-NXP-2 antibodies were assayed by immunoprecipitation using NXP-2 produced by in vitro transcription/translation...

OBJECTIVES: To address knowledge gaps regarding the relationship between bone mineral density (BMD) and incident hip or knee osteoarthritis (OA); specifically, lack of information regarding hip OA or symptomatic outcomes. METHODS: Using data (N=1,474) from the Johnston County Osteoarthritis (JoCo OA) Project's first (1999-2004) and second follow-up (2005-2010) of participants aged ≥45 years we examined the association between total hip BMD and both hip and knee OA...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the relationship between chondrocalcinosis and pain or synovitis in knee joints by examining data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative (OAI). METHODS: Data were obtained from the OAI public use data sets. The relationship between chondrocalcinosis on baseline knee radiograph and pain at baseline and at 4 years was examined. Analyses were adjusted for age, gender, body mass index, and Kellgren-Lawrence (KL) grade and the correlation between two knees in a subject was controlled using generalized estimating equations...

OBJECTIVES: Patients with systemic sclerosis suffer severe physical limitations and psychological morbidity but their lived experience remains underrepresented and is reflected in the scarcity of evidence based patient-centered interventions. We aimed to describe patients' perspectives of systemic sclerosis to inform strategies to improve their care. METHODS: Face-to-face semi-structured interviews were conducted with 30 adult patients with limited or diffuse systemic sclerosis in Australia...

OBJECTIVE: The optimal timing of TNF antagonists before elective surgery is unknown. This study evaluated the association between infliximab timing and serious infection after elective hip or knee arthroplasty. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study evaluated U.S. Medicare patients with rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, or ankylosing spondylitis who received infliximab within 6 months of elective knee or hip arthroplasty from 2007-2013...
