OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess the histopathological changes in parotid gland tissue of primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS) patients treated with abatacept. METHODS: In all 15 pSS patients included in the open-label Active Sjögren Abatacept Pilot (ASAP, 8 abatacept infusions) study parotid gland biopsies were taken before treatment and at 24 weeks of follow up. Biopsies were analysed for pSS-related histopathological features and placed in context of clini- cal responsiveness as assessed with EULAR Sjögren's syndrome disease activity index (ESSDAI)...

Complex rheumatological syndromes such as Systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjogren's Syndrome and many connective tissue disorders can be a challenge to classify and diagnose, due to their wide-ranging signs and symptoms, not all of which will necessarily be present in all patients. This can result in difficulties for the clinician, patient and researcher if signs and symptoms are either overlooked or are incorrectly included in the nosology or classification of diseases. This article presents a formalism-based approach to describing syndromes...

Acute fibrinous and organizing pneumonia (AFOP) is a histological pattern characterized by intra-alveolar fibrin deposition and associated organizing pneumonia. AFOP has been associated with many rheumatologic disorders in the literature but has not been described in association with Sjogren's syndrome. This paper shows a rare association of AFOP with Sjogren's syndrome. Patient's symptoms promptly improved after treatment with steroid.

Oral symptoms are among the most distressing manifestations for patients with Sjögren's syndrome (SS). The feeling of dry mouth is unpleasant, and hyposalivation may contribute to difficulty in speaking, chewing and swallowing and reduced quality of life. Reduced salivary flow increases the risk for dental caries and problems with prosthetic replacement. It seems that SS is not as frequently occurring as previously anticipated. Population-based prevalence studies on primary SS in Europe, conducted on large background populations and in accordance with the AECG criteria, reported of a prevalence of 1-9 cases per 10,000 people...

Multicentric reticulohistiocytosis (MRH) is a rare, multisystemic non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis characterized by skin and articular involvement, and rarely involves various other organs. There are no specific laboratory findings for MRH. Diagnosis is based on clinical findings and skin or synovial biopsy results. There is currently no consensus for the treatment of MRH. Here, we review the differential diagnosis and treatment options of MRH from the rheumatologist's perspective. We also report an index case of MRH associated with Sjögren's syndrome and pulmonary embolism...

Dry eye and dry mouth symptoms are each reported by up to 30% of persons more than 65 years of age, particularly in women. Medication side effects are the most common contributing factors. The evaluation of these symptoms requires measures of ocular and oral dryness. Sjögren syndrome is the prototypic disease associated with dryness of the eyes and mouth and predominantly affects women in their perimenopausal and postmenopausal years. In addition to topical treatment of the mucosal dryness, patients with Sjögren syndrome may require treatment with systemic immunomodulatory and immunosuppressive agents to manage a variety of extraglandular manifestations...

OBJECTIVES: In liver cancer treatment, lipiodol is used as a pharmaceutical excipient to improve delivery of the cytostatic drug doxorubicin (DOX). As DOX and its metabolite doxorubicinol (DOXol) cause serious off-target adverse effects, we investigated the effects of drug-free lipiodol or ciclosporin (CsA) on the tissue distribution (Kp ) of DOX and DOXol in relevant pig tissues. METHODS: Four treatment groups (TI-TIV) all received an intravenous DOX solution at 0 and 200 min...

OBJECTIVES: To determine whether salivary beta-2 microglobulin (sB2M) is correlated with the ESSPRI, a patient-centred measure of symptoms, in patients with primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS). METHODS: All patients completed the ESSPRI. sB2M was measured by ELISA in whole saliva. The association was explored using the Kendall's tau. A ROC curve was generated to determine the cutoff value in the sB2M with the highest level of accuracy in identifying patients with unsatisfactory symptom state (ESSPRI ≥ 5)...

BACKGROUND: B cells are key players in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Although successful in 50-60% of patients with RA, anti-B-cell therapy given as rituximab could be more efficient by identifying potential responders prior to treatment. Positron emission tomography (PET) using radiolabeled rituximab for B-cell imaging might provide the means to fulfil this unmet clinical need. The objective of this study was to investigate the association between biodistribution of zirconium-89 ((89)Zr)-rituximab on PET-computed tomography (CT) and clinical response in patients with RA...

INTRODUCTION: Sjögren syndrome is thought to be a lymphocyte-driven process. Peripheral nervous system involvement occurs in about 20-25% of patients. A sensory predominant, large fiber peripheral neuropathy is most common, and it is usually associated with a subacute to chronic presentation. METHODS: We report a rare case of an acute Sjögren-associated, sensory predominant, length-dependent peripheral neuropathy mimicking Guillain-Barré syndrome. The patient presented with sensory ataxia preceded by fever and polyarthralgia...

BACKGROUND: Primary Sjögren syndrome (pSS) is a progressive autoimmune disease that primarily affects exocrine glands. The clinical presentation of pSS may vary from an asymptomatic condition to severe skin symptom, resulting in a difficult and challenging diagnosis and treatment. METHODS AND RESULTS: Here, we report a 47-year-old Chinese woman who lost vision in the right eye for 7 days. She had been misdiagnosed with primary optic neuritis for 3 months. After 3 months, the results of immunohistochemistry, salivary gland scintigraphy, and antibody tests proved the diagnosis of pSS...

Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a very rare syndrome with a mortality up to 95% of cases if not treated. It is characterised by an excessive activation of the immune system that leads to a disproportionate and destructive inflammatory response. The high mortality rates are in part due to a delay in the diagnosis, and therefore clinicians must maintain a high index of suspicion. When the treatment is started early, the survival rate reaches around 55% of cases. HLH usually presents with persistent fever, pancytopenia, and organomegaly and is associated with very high levels of serum ferritin...

Sjögren Syndrome (SS) is a systemic autoimmune disease with a wide clinical spectrum that extends from sicca symptoms of the mucosal surfaces to extra-glandular systemic manifestations. Understanding of the pathophysiology of primary SS has advanced over recent years, and this, in turn, has presented new targeted treatment options. We provide a brief, up-to-date description of the pathophysiology of SS and the main etiopathogenic pathways implicated in the disease process and review clinical evidence in support of new treatment options targeting these pathways, highlighting successes and failures, and concluding with a summary of gaps in knowledge and where future research should be focused...

Autoantibodies can be present years to decades before the onset of disease manifestations in autoimmunity. This finding suggests that the initial autoimmune trigger involves a peripheral lymphoid component, which ultimately drives disease pathology in local tissues later in life. We show that Sjögren's syndrome manifestations that develop in aged NOD.H-2h4 mice were driven by and dependent on peripheral dysregulation that arose in early life. Specifically, elimination of spontaneous germinal centers in spleens of young NOD...

CLN3 disease (Spielmeyer-Vogt-Sjogren-Batten disease, previously known as classic juvenile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis, NCL) is a pediatric-onset progressive neurodegenerative disease characterized by progressive vision loss, seizures, loss of cognitive and motor function, and early death. While no precise biochemical mechanism or therapies are known, the pathogenesis of CLN3 disease involves intracellular calcium accumulation that may trigger apoptosis. Our prior work in in vitro cell models of CLN3 deficiency suggested that FDA-approved calcium channel antagonists may have therapeutic value...
