Although ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a common, highly heritable arthropathy, the precise genetic mechanism underlying the disease remains elusive. Here, we investigate the disease-causing mutations in a large AS family with distinguished complexity, consisting of 23 patients covering four generations and exhibiting a mixed HLA-B27 (+) and (-) status. Linkage analysis with 32 members using three methods and whole-exome sequencing analysis with three HLA-B27 (+) patients, one HLA-B27 (-) patient, and one healthy individual did not identify a mutation common to all of the patients, strongly suggesting the existence of genetic heterogeneity in this large pedigree...

Virtually all patients of the rare inflammatory eye disease birdshot chorioretinopathy (BSCR) carry the HLA-A*29:02 allele. BSCR is also associated with endoplasmic reticulum aminopeptidase 2 (ERAP2), an enzyme involved in processing HLA class I ligands, thus implicating the A*29:02 peptidome in this disease. To investigate the relationship between both risk factors we employed label-free quantitative mass spectrometry to characterize the effects of ERAP2 on the A*29:02-bound peptidome. An ERAP2-negative cell line was transduced with lentiviral constructs containing GFP-ERAP2 or GFP alone, and the A*29:02 peptidomes from both transduced cells were compared...

Depressive disorders, are not only common but also among the leading causes of disability worldwide. They are associated with increased incidences of various other diseases. It has been shown that in patients with autoimmune diseases, when depression coexists, the quality of life is worse and medical treatment and management is compromised. Depression-like symptoms, such as fatigue and disinterest are also common in inflammatory rheumatic diseases and often associated with poor quality of life. Medical therapy targeting inflammation results in alleviation of these symptoms in many patients...

Certolizumab pegol (CZP) is a pegylated humanized tumor necrosis factor-α inhibitor (TNFi) approved for the treatment of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) in the USA and for AS and non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA) in Europe and in some Latin American countries. CZP lacks Fc region, preventing complement fixation and cytotoxicity mediated by antibody; CZP does not actively cross the placenta, unlike other TNFi. RAPID-axSpA study is a Phase III trial conducted in patients with AS and nr-axSpA as double blind and placebo controlled to week 24, dose blind to week 48 and open label to week 204...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) was historically seen as a predominantly male disease. However, more recent data showed a more homogenous sex prevalence. Unfortunately, in many studies in axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA), the number of women included is low and the analyses are often not stratified for gender distribution. The purpose of this review is to aggregate the existing data on gender differences in axSpA in order to increase the awareness that female axSpA patients are still under-recognized...

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) was first identified in the late 17th century. 250 years later, inflammatory spine disease was recognized to be one of the patterns of psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Isolated spondylitis is rare among patients with PsA, occurring in less than 5% of patients; however, many patients with PsA have axial disease that is concurrent with peripheral arthritis. At the other end of the spondyloarthritis spectrum, psoriasis is observed in 10% of patients with AS. Although axial involvement in PsA can be indistinguishable from axial disease in AS, it can also differ in several respects, raising the question of whether axial PsA and AS (with or without psoriasis) are different clinical presentations of the same disease, or whether they are separate diseases that have overlapping features...
