Histocompatibility antigens in inflammatory bowel disease. Their clinical significance and their association with arthropathy with special reference to HLA-B27 (W27). (1/2657)

Histocompatibility (HLA) antigen phenotypes have been studied in 100 patients with ulcerative colitis, 100 with Crohn's disease, and 283 normal controls. In addition the incidence of ankylosing spondylitis, sacroiliitis, and "enteropathic" peripheral arthropathy was determined in the patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). There was no significant difference in antigen frequency between patients and controls. However, the incidence of HLA-B27 was increased in the patients complicated by ankylosing spondylitis and/or sacroiliitis in both ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. In contrast, none of the 29 IBD patients with "enteropathic" peripheral arthropathy had B27 antigen. Furthermore, ankylosing spondylitis was found more frequently in ulcerative colitis bearing HLA-B27 compared with non-B27 patients (P less than 0-01). The same was found in Crohn's disease, although this difference was not statistically significant. In addition, 12 of 14 ulcerative colitis patients and five out of six Crohn's patients with HLA-B27 had total colitis, compared with the frequency of total colitis in non-B27 patients (P less than 0-024 and less than 0-03 respectively). The data suggest that B27 histocompatibility antigen could be a pathogenetic discriminator between the arthropathies in IBD and may be of prognostic significance with respect to extension and severity of the disease.  (+info)

Alteration of descending modulation of nociception during the course of monoarthritis in the rat. (2/2657)

Diffuse noxious inhibitory controls (DNIC), which involve supraspinal structures and modulate the transmission of nociceptive signals, were investigated at different stages during the development of adjuvant-induced monoarthritis in the rat. After behavioral evaluation, recordings of trigeminal convergent neurons were performed in anesthetized animals with acute (24-48 hr) or chronic (3-4 weeks) monoarthritis of the ankle. Inhibitions of C-fiber-evoked neuronal responses during and after the application of noxious conditioning stimuli to the ankle were measured to evaluate DNIC. The conditioning stimuli consisted of mechanical (maximal flexion and graded pressures) and graded thermal stimuli and were applied alternately to normal and arthritic ankles. Behaviorally, the two groups of animals exhibited a similar increased sensitivity to mechanical stimuli applied to the arthritic joint (i.e., an increased ankle-bend score and a decreased vocalization threshold to pressure stimuli). However, they showed different electrophysiological profiles. In the animals with acute monoarthritis, the DNIC-induced inhibitions produced by mechanical or thermal stimulation of the arthritic joint were significantly increased at all intensities compared with the normal joint. In contrast, in the chronic stage of monoarthritis, the DNIC-induced inhibitions triggered by thermal or pressure stimuli were similar for both ankles, except with the most intense mechanical stimuli. This discrepancy between the behavioral and electrophysiological findings suggests that inputs activated during chronic monoarthritis may fail to recruit DNIC and may thus be functionally different from those activated in the acute stage of inflammation.  (+info)

Sensory afferent properties of immobilised or inflamed rat knees during continuous passive movement. (3/2657)

We studied the sensory afferent properties of normal, immobilised and inflamed rat knees by recording the activity of the medial articular nerve (MAN). When the knee was inflamed by kaolin-carrageenan or immobilised for six weeks, MAN activity significantly increased during rest and continuous passive motion (CPM). The maximal discharge rate tended to increase depending on the angular velocity of the CPM. When the knees were then rested for one hour before again starting CPM, activity was further increased at the initial CPM cycle, the 'post-rest effect'. Analysis of the conduction velocity showed that 94% and 66% of spike units on the recorded discharge of the immobilised and inflamed knees, respectively, belonged to fine nerve fibres. Our findings show that the sensory receptors in the knee are sensitised in a similar manner by immobilisation and by inflammation, suggesting a relationship to pain. The post-rest effect may be related to a characteristic symptom of osteoarthritis called 'starting pain'.  (+info)

Impaired invariant chain degradation and antigen presentation and diminished collagen-induced arthritis in cathepsin S null mice. (4/2657)

Cathepsins have been implicated in the degradation of proteins destined for the MHC class II processing pathway and in the proteolytic removal of invariant chain (Ii), a critical regulator of MHC class II function. Mice lacking the lysosomal cysteine proteinase cathepsin S (catS) demonstrated a profound inhibition of Ii degradation in professional APC in vivo. A marked variation in the generation of MHC class II-bound Ii fragments and presentation of exogenous proteins was observed between B cells, dendritic cells, and macrophages lacking catS. CatS-deficient mice showed diminished susceptibility to collagen-induced arthritis, suggesting a potential therapeutic target for regulation of immune responsiveness.  (+info)

Effect of tripterine on collagen-induced arthritis in rats. (5/2657)

AIM: To study the therapeutic effect of tripterine (Tri) on collagen-induced arthritis (CIA). METHODS: Collagen type II (Col) 1.5 mg was injected intradermally to induce CIA in rats. Hind paw volumes of rats were measured with a water displacement method. The serum anti-collagen antibody was measured by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Delayed hypersensitivity was reflected by skin response to Col. Interleukin-1 (IL-1) and interleukin-2 (IL-2) activities were evaluated by [3H]TdR uptake. Joint was evaluated histologically. RESULTS: Tri 15 and 30 mg.kg-1.d-1 given i.g. to rats 3 d after the first sign of arthritis reduced inflammatory swelling, suppressed humoral and skin response to Col, inhibited IL-2 and IL-1 production, reduced pathological progression of joint. CONCLUSION: Tri has a therapeutic effect on CIA.  (+info)

Body mass index, weight change, and incidence of self-reported physician-diagnosed arthritis among women. (6/2657)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the relationship between body mass index (BMI), weight change, and arthritis in women. METHODS: Data were taken from the 1982-1984 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey Epidemiologic Follow-Up Study of 3617 women, aged 25 to 74 years. RESULTS: Women with a BMI greater than 32 at initial interview were at significantly higher risk of developing arthritis than women with a BMI of 19 to 21.9. Compared with stable-weight women with a BMI of less than 25, women who were obese at initial interview (BMI > 29) and who subsequently maintained their weight or gained more than 10% of their body weight were at significantly higher risk of developing arthritis. CONCLUSIONS: Attaining and maintaining a healthy weight may reduce the risk of developing arthritis.  (+info)

HLA-B27 antigen in diagnosis of atypical seronegative inflammatory arthropathy. (7/2657)

Eighteen patients with an inflammatory pauciarticular peripheral arthropathy not typical of any known entity showed an asymmetrical pattern of disease, with a predilection for the lower extremities. Destructive joint changes and deformities were absent (mean follow-up 10 years). Although spondylitis and sacroiliitis were absent on x-rays, HLA-B27 antigen was found in 8 patients (44%). This antigen and similar joint symptoms are also found in other forms of arthritis.  (+info)

Interferon-beta1A-induced polyarthritis in a patient with the HLA-DRB1*0404 allele. (8/2657)

Human interferon-alpha (IFNalpha) and IFNbeta are administered for treatment of several diseases, including viral infections, malignancies, and multiple sclerosis (MS). IFNalpha therapy has been associated with the production of autoantibodies and the development of a variety of autoimmune disorders, including polyarthritis. This report describes the development of seronegative, symmetric polyarthritis in a patient with relapsing-remitting MS, after 8 weeks of therapy with IFNbeta1a. HLA phenotyping analysis of the patient revealed the presence of HLA-DRB1*0404, an allele known to be associated with the development of rheumatoid arthritis. Therefore, IFNbeta1a may have induced arthritis in a patient who was genetically predisposed to develop arthritis on the basis of HLA determinants. The English-language literature regarding IFNalpha- and IFNbeta-induced polyarthritis is reviewed, and possible mechanisms for IFNalpha- and IFNbeta-induced autoimmunity, including the contribution of HLA determinants and nitric oxide overproduction, are discussed.  (+info)

Living with chronic inflammatory polyarthritis has influence on patients everyday lives and well-being. Patients thus have to learn how to live and cope with their chronic disease, and such topics are often addressed in patient education. More knowledge on coping with chronic inflammatory polyarthritis and the process of change that patients go through is requested. Such knowledge is especially important for those developing educational interventions. Moreover, the literature shows that group or individual-based education mainly show short-term effects, only few studies have investigated whether patient education have long-term effects. The main aim of this thesis was therefore to contribute with knowledge about the experiences of coping and the effect of patient education for people living with chronic inflammatory polyarthritis. To answer the main aim, two studies were conducted. A qualitative study to investigate the process of coping and a randomised controlled trial (RCT) to investigate ...
Introduction: Arthritis is associated with cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). However, there are limited studies on arthritis in a national representative sample. We therefore investigated the prevalence of arthritis, and whether cardiovascular risk factors were associated with arthritis. The results show an interaction effect on the association of arthritis with CVDs.. Methods: Data from 15888 subjects aged ≥40 years in the United States National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1999-2008 were analyzed.. Results: The overall prevalence of self-reported arthritis increased from 33.5% in 1999-2000 to 37.0% in 2007-2008 (P for trend=0.016), especially in subjects aged 40-49 years, men, non-Hispanic whites, and obese subjects (P=0.045, 0.015, 0.016, and 0.017 respectively). Among subjects with arthritis in 1999-2008, 35.3% had osteoarthritis (OA), 17.9% had rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and 10.2% had other types of arthritis, but 36.6% were unaware of their type of arthritis. Risk factors such ...
Women are affected by arthritis at a higher rate than are men. Three out of five persons who self-report they have been told by a doctor that they have some form of arthritis are women. Women also are 50% more likely to report they have limitations with activities of daily living because of their arthritis.
In order to come to these conclusions, an expert team of American researchers at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City conducted a series of experiments involving 200 arthritis sufferers, and checked out the effects of regular physical exercise as an arthritis pain relief.. The scientists focused on studying arthritis management programs offered by the Hospital for Special Surgery for all the patients with arthritis. It turned out that weekly programs of dance fitness, Pilates, Tai Chi, yoga, and other similar activities helped the participants of the experiment substantially decrease their pains, along with lowering the frequency of painful peaks. Such activities are recommended to be used for muscle pain relief, knee pain relief, and other sorts of arthritis pain relief. As it is reported in the study, such exercises helped the patients achieve more balance, decrease the number of falls, reduce all sorts of arthritis-linked pains, as well as get rid of some of the limits of ...
Marked by morning stiffness, joint aches, and flare-ups, the pain of arthritis tends to be acute and recurrent, in contrast to many chronic pain conditions. Arthritis pain therefore makes an ideal model for comparing common clinical pain with experimental pain. Inspired by this observation, researchers at University of Manchester Rheumatic Diseases Centre in the United Kingdom conducted the first study to compare directly the brain areas involved in processing arthritis pain and experimental pain in a group of patients with osteoarthritis (OA). Their results, published in the April 2007 issue of Arthritis & Rheumatism, shed light on the role of emotions in how patients feel arthritis pain. The study focused on 12 patients with knee osteoarthritis - 6 women and 6 men, with a mean age of 52 years. All subjects underwent positron emission tomography (PET), to measure and map 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake in the brain as an indicator of brain activity. PET scans were performed during three ...
The most common cause of bilateral symmetrical polyarthritis in the small joints is rheumatoid arthritis. However, if seronegative arthritis is involved, it could be the case that other underlying causes need to be diagnosed. This is particularly important for those coming from or living in developing countries where infectious causes should always be considered. The case of a young Nepali woman is presented in this article. She was referred as a case of seronegative rheumatoid arthritis for DMARDs therapy but this was not the case due to her origin from Nepal and seronegativity for RF, Anti-ccp, and ANA as well as faint macular skin lesions over her face and upper extremities, which the patients are not aware of. Consequently, skin biopsy was carried out which subsequently confirmed that the infectious cause of her polyarthritis was leprosy.. ...

Arthritis literally means inflammation of a joint. In some forms of arthritis, such as osteoarthritis, the inflammation arises because the smooth covering (articular cartilage) on the ends of bones wears away. In other forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, the joint lining becomes inflamed as part of a systemic disease. These diseases are considered the inflammatory arthritides.. The three most common types of inflammatory arthritis that affect the hip are:. ...

Opinions differ on the effectiveness of over-the-counter topical pain medications. While many people say these products help relieve their arthritis pain, scientific research reveals only modest benefits.. Some products work only slightly or no better than a placebo in relieving arthritis pain. Capsaicin might be more effective when used with other treatments, such as pills containing nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).. Application of capsaicin creams can make your skin burn or sting, but this discomfort generally lessens within a few weeks of daily use. Wash your hands thoroughly after each application and avoid touching your eyes and mucous membranes. You may need to wear latex gloves when applying the cream.. If you are allergic to aspirin or are taking blood thinners, check with your doctor before using topical medications that contain salicylates. Also, using too much can be toxic..

Arthritis is a complex disease with over a hundred different types. Generally, these are divided into two major categories: inflammatory arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout, lupus, or fibromyalgia; and osteoarthritis, the most common form, which develops through wear and tear on the joints.. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage, the bodys natural shock absorber that cushions the end of the bones in your joints, begins to deteriorate. When cartilage wears away sufficiently, the friction between your joints causes pain and stiffness. The joints most often affected are hips, knees, spine, and hands, but arthritis can affect any joint in the body.. While many cases of osteoarthritis are mild, especially at first onset, over time people living with arthritis report difficulties performing activities of daily living, such as dressing, exercising, climbing stairs, or stepping in and out of the shower.. Left untreated, arthritis can cause inflammation of the joint lining and the ...

BACKGROUND: Chronic inflammatory joint diseases (IJDs) affect 1% to 2% of the population in developed countries. IJDs include rheumatoid arthritis (RA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS), psoriatic arthritis (PsA), and other forms of spondyloarthritis (SpA).

To determine whether chronic inflammatory arthritis may respond to antibiotic therapy (implying a bacterial origin), we conducted a placebo-controlled, double-blind study. Sixty patients with inflammatory arthritis and antibody titers to Borrelia burgdorferi 1:64 or more were randomized to receive placebo (n = 20) or 2 g/d of ceftriaxone intravenously (n = 40) for 2 weeks. Two of 20 placebo- and 19 of 40 antibiotic-treated patients improved. At 1 month, the placebo-treated patients could elect to receive ceftriaxone. Altogether, 58 patients were treated with ceftriaxone and followed up for 13 to 24 months. Improvement was noted in 27 of the 58 antibiotic-treated patients. Patients with a wide diversity of inflammatory arthritis were studied. Response to ceftriaxone was seen in all groups, including 5 of 12 with rheumatoid arthritis, 5 of 8 with psoriatic arthritis, 3 of 5 with vasculitis, and 14 of 33 with less well-differentiated chronic inflammatory arthritis. In 16 of the 27 who responded to the
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Symmetry is considered an important criterion for the differentiation of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) from other forms of inflammatory polyarthritis (IP), particularly those that are seronegative. Because of the inclusion of symmetry in the diagnostic and classification process, however, its true occurrence in RA cannot be assessed. As a surrogate, peripheral inflammatory arthropathies associated with rheumatoid factor production may be more likely to be symmetrical. We examined the degree of symmetry of erosions in an unselected cohort of patients with IP and tested the hypothesis that the presence of rheumatoid factor (RF) is associated with greater symmetry. METHODS: All patients registered with The Norfolk Arthritis Register (NOAR; a UK primary-care based cohort of patients with IP with annual follow-up) and who had radiographs performed at the fifth anniversary from notification were included in the analysis. Radiographs of the hands and feet were read using the Larsen method; a

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Focal bone loss in inflammatory arthritis begins early in the disease process and can contribute to patient morbidity. Current treatment strategies primarily target suppression of the inflammatory cascade with varying success in limiting the progression of focal bone destruction. This review outlines the current understanding of the mechanisms mediating inflammation-induced focal bone loss in rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory arthritides and highlights recent studies in animal models of arthritis that have contributed to our knowledge of this process. RECENT FINDINGS: Bone-resorbing osteoclasts have been identified as important effector cells in inflammation-induced bone loss in both experimental animal models and human rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. The RANK/RANKL (receptor activator of nuclear factor-kappaB and RANK ligand) pathway has been shown to be essential for osteoclast differentiation in inflammatory arthritis. In addition, in vitro and in vivo

There is an ever-increasing need for animal models to evaluate efficacy and safety of new therapeutics in the field of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Particularly for the early preclinical evaluation of human-specific biologicals targeting the progressive phase of the disease, there is a need for relevant animal models. In response to this requirement we set out to develop a model of collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) in a small-sized nonhuman primate species (300 to 400 g at adult age); that is, the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus). Twenty-two animals divided into three experiments were immunized with collagen type II (CII) of either bovine or chicken origin with different immunization strategies. The animals were analyzed for clinical manifestation of arthritis, hematology and clinical chemistry, immunological responses against CII and histopathological features of the arthritis. Clinically manifest arthritis was observed in almost 100% (21 out of 22) of the animals. Fifty percent of the animals

The compound 13-cis retinoic acid was first studied in the 1960s at Roche Laboratories in Switzerland by Werner Bollag as a treatment for skin cancer. Experiments completed in 1971 showed that the compound was likely to be ineffective for cancer and, surprisingly, that it could be useful to treat acne. However, they also showed that the compound was likely to cause birth defects, so in light of the events around thalidomide, Roche abandoned the product. In 1975, Gary Peck and Frank Yoder independently rediscovered the drug's use as a treatment of cystic acne while studying it as a treatment for lamellar ichthyosis, and published that work. Roche resumed work on the drug. In clinical trials, subjects were carefully screened to avoid including women who were or might become pregnant. Roche's New Drug Application for isotretinoin for the treatment of acne included data showing that the drug caused birth defects in rabbits. The FDA approved the application in 1982.
