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)

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 ...

Arthritis is one of the most common diseases in the United States. An estimated 50 million adults in the United States reported being told by a doctor that they have some form of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, lupus, or fibromyalgia. By 2030, an estimated 67 million Americans ages 18 years or older are projected to have doctor-diagnosed arthritis. (Source: CDC). Arthritis literally means joint inflammation. The term arthritis describes more than 100 rheumatic diseases and conditions that affect joints, the tissues surrounding the joint and other connective tissue. The location, pattern, and severity of symptoms can vary depending on the specific form of the disease. Arthritis is typically characterized by stiffness and pain in and around one or more joints. Symptoms can develop suddenly or gradually. Certain arthritic conditions can also involve the immune system and a variety of internal organs inside the body.. Tendinitis is inflammation, irritation, and swelling of a tendon, which is ...
Arthritis-attributable work limitations (AAWL) are defined in reference to work for pay as: "Do arthritis or joint symptoms now affect whether you work, the type of work you do, or the amount of work you do?" In 2002, AAWL affected an estimated 30% adults (6.9 million) aged 18 to 64 years with doctor-diagnosed arthritis. Higher rates were found among those aged 45 to 64 years, women, non-Hispanic blacks, and those with low education or low income.3 Between 2010 and 2012, 3.8 million people age 18 years and older with doctor-diagnosed arthritis reported they are "unable to work now due to a health," while 2.1 million reported they are "limited in the kind or amount of work they can do." Arthritis conditions represented about one in five people with a work limitation from any medical condition. (Reference Table 4.6.1 PDF CSV; Table 4.6.2 PDF CSV ...
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..

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). Tobacco smoking is considered a significant environmental risk factor for developing IJDs. There are indications that smoking exacerbates the symptoms and worsens disease outcomes.. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this review was to investigate the evidence for effects of smoking cessation interventions on smoking cessation and disease activity in smokers with IJD.. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Tobacco Addiction Group Specialized Register; the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), the Cochrane Library; PubMed/MEDLINE; Embase; PsycINFO; the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL); and three trials registers to October 2018.. SELECTION CRITERIA: We included randomised controlled trials testing ...

In vitro PMA/ionomycin treatment for 5 h, which activates a signal transduction step down-stream of ZAP-70 and therefore equally activates SKG and BALB/c T cells, revealed that a significant fraction of LN CD4+ T cells from nonarthritic SKG mice in an SPF environment were producing IL-17A (hereafter IL-17), whereas SKG or BALB/c CD4-SP thymocytes or BALB/c CD4+ T cells were not (Fig. 1 A and Fig. S1, which is available at http://www.jem.org/cgi/content/full/jem.20062259/DC1). Such IL-17-producing SKG CD4+ T cells also produced at a single cell level TNF-α and IL-2, but not IFN-γ, IL-4, or IL-10, a profile distinct from Th1 or Th2 cells and similar to that of Th17 cells (Fig. 1 A; references 7-9). CD4+ T cells freshly prepared from nonarthritic SKG mice also actively transcribed IL-17 and IL-23R mRNA (Fig. 1 B). In arthritic SKG mice raised in a conventional environment, arthritic joints actively transcribed IL-17 mRNA, whereas nonarthritic ones did not (Fig. 1 C). Correspondingly, CD4+ T cells ...
TUESDAY, March 7, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Arthritis is expanding its grip on Americans, with 24 million adults limited in their everyday activities because of the debilitating joint disease, U.S. health officials say.. Overall, 54 million adults -- or one in four -- report an arthritis diagnosis. And the number of people disabled by it has jumped 20 percent since 2002, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday. "Arthritis symptoms keep millions of Americans from going about their daily routines," CDC acting director Dr. Anne Schuchat said in an agency news release.. The joint aches, stiffness and swelling of arthritis can make holding a glass, carrying a grocery bag, or walking a short distance difficult or even impossible, the agency said.. Why so many Americans have arthritis isnt clear, and cant be attributed solely to an aging population. Almost two of five adults with arthritis are of working age -- 18 to 64 years old, the CDC said. The most common types are ...

October 12, 2007, is World Arthritis Day, which is intended to highlight the everyday challenges at home and in the workplace for persons with arthritis or rheumatism and to encourage solutions to these challenges. For example, the pain, fatigue, and activity limitations that often accompany arthritis can prevent some persons from working, resulting in disability. Various accommodations, such as flexible work schedules and assistive devices, can counter the effects of arthritis and help keep persons with arthritis working. Accommodating persons with disabilities, including those attributed to arthritis, is a goal of the U.S. Department of Labors Office of Disability Employment Policy. Each October, it sponsors National Disability Employment Awareness Month, which is intended to increase public awareness of the contributions and skills of U.S. workers with disabilities and to eliminate employment barriers. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against persons with ...
Recently, therapy with bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMMSCs) has been attempted to relieve rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and reconstruct cartilage injury. However, treatment has been unsuccessful in complete prevention of persistent cartilage destruction and resulted in inferior outcomes of cartilage regeneration. Scaffolds are an important construct in the field of cartilage tissue engineering, but their role in arthritis treatment has not yet been fully examined. Here, we transplanted two types of scaffold-assisted BMMSCs: fibrin gel- and poly(l-lactide-co-glycolide)−poly(ethylene glycol)−poly(l-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA−PEG−PLGA) hydrogel-assisted BMMSCs referred as FGB and HGB groups, respectively, into subchondral defects for the treatment of antigen-induced arthritis. The administration of exogenous BMMSCs ameliorated joint swelling and decreased both joint surface temperature and inflammatory cytokine levels in both groups.

This study sought to determine the predictive value of a pragmatic definition of remission on all-cause mortality in a primary care based inception cohort of patients with IP. This is the largest study to investigate this relationship. The particular setting of NOAR allowed us to measure the effect of remission, taking into account several potential confounders, thus providing more precise and less biased measures of association.. In this study we included two groups of patients, recruited 10 years apart. Differences between these two groups have been previously reported.14 The second group comprised patients with longer mean symptom duration, higher disease activity, higher disability, but, probably due to a more intensive treatment strategy, a higher proportion of patients from the second group achieved a status of clinical remission. Given that belonging to a specific group did not modify the effect of remission variables, we analysed the two groups together, adjusting for year of ...

After four arthritis-related surgeries, 69-year-old Gale Deacons family jokingly calls her a bionic woman. Diagnosed 20 years ago with arthritis, Gale has had both knees replaced and her latest surgery fused the bones in her left foot back together in three places. Two days later, she began rehabilitation at Bridgepoint Active Healthcare.. "Im a very independent lady, but the pain from arthritis can be excruciating," says Gale. "I gave up driving because I knew I no longer had the reflexes in my knees; it was one of the toughest decisions Ive ever made.". According to Bridgepoint Occupational Therapist Sandy Duncan, theres a common perception that arthritis is a disease of the elderly - something your grandmother may have. The reality is that 56 per cent of Canadians living with arthritis are under age 65; approximately three out of five are working age. In Gales case, arthritis forced her to stop working in her 50s, when the physical limitations became too much. Gale has been working with ...

HealthDay News) -- Just a little physical activity seems to go a long way toward helping older adults with arthritis remain able to do daily tasks, a new study finds.. Older adults with arthritis-related joint pain and stiffness need to keep moving to remain functionally independent. But only 10 percent of older Americans with arthritis in their knees meet federal guidelines of at least 150 minutes of moderate activity a week, the researchers said.. However, this Northwestern University study found that doing even about one-third of that amount is still beneficial.. The study involved more than 1,600 adults 49 or older who had arthritic pain or stiffness in their hips, knees or feet.. Those who did a minimum of 45 minutes of moderate activity -- such as brisk walking -- a week were 80 percent more likely to improve or sustain physical function and gait speed over two years, compared with those who did less activity, the researchers found.. Even a little activity is better than none, said study ...
Coronary CT angiography (CCTA) is an established method for ruling out coronary artery stenoses in symptomatic patients with low to intermediate risk for cardiovascular events. Patients with inflammatory joint diseases and type 1 diabetes have an increased risk for coronary events, but cardiovascular disease prevention is clinically challenging as chest pain often may be absent or unspecific in these patients.. The overall aim of the thesis was to evaluate the prevalence and characteristics of CCTA-verified plaques in patients with inflammatory joint diseases and type 1 diabetes, and further to assess associations between CCTA findings and clinical variables. Additionally, the long-term effect of statins on plaque morphology was evaluated in the patients with inflammatory joint diseases, and the associations between coronary atherosclerosis and epicardial adipose tissue were assessed in the patients with type 1 diabetes.. This thesis shows a high prevalence of coronary plaques in both cohorts. ...
The objective of our study was to determine the regulatory effects that endogenous transforming growth factor β (TGFβ) exerts on T cells in the pathogenesis of collagen-induced arthritis (CIA). CIA was induced in transgenic mice expressing a dominant negative TGFβ type II receptor in T cells under the control of the human CD2 promoter. Clinical and histological arthritis scores were determined and experiments on disease induction and the healing phase of disease were performed. The proliferation and cytokine production of draining lymph node cells in vitro were analyzed. Transgenic mice were more susceptible to induction of CIA. The overall incidence was higher in transgenic mice than in wild-type mice (57% vs 35%, P < 0.05). Affected transgenic animals displayed a significantly higher clinical (4.5 ± 0.6 vs 1.67 ± 0.19, P = 0.001) and histological arthritis score (8.01 ± 0.9 vs 4.06 ± 1.1, P < 0.05). Draining lymph node cells of transgenic mice secreted more tumor necrosis factor α and IFNγ
If you have been living with arthritis for a while then you probably know that exercise is a key part of fighting the pain, stiffness, and swelling that accompany this chronic condition. And yet, hauling yourself to the gym, hitting the track for a jog, or joining your local sports league can be difficult when you are already suffering from the discomfort and fatigue of arthritis. You might not want to move, let alone stress your already painful joints. And yet, without your daily workout to increase strength and flexibility, your condition only stands to worsen. This could lead to even less activity, accompanied by increasing stiffness, soreness, and weight gain, all of which could further derail your progress in the fight against arthritic symptoms. Without exercise you could eventually become incapacitated by the ongoing degeneration of arthritis. Luckily, there are ways to manage your pain in the here and now so that you can continue to follow your workout regimen and hopefully improve your ...

Basically, Arthritis is inflammation of the joints. There are currently over 100 forms of Arthritis and remarkably, that number continues to rise. The most common forms of Arthritis include: Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Gout (see our next article, "Symptoms of Arthritis" for more information). Osteoarthritis is the result of degenerative joint disease, or simply "wear and tear" on the joints. Rheumatoid Arthritis is the result of an over active Immune System that results in inflammation. Gout is the oldest form of Arthritis and is the result of too much Uric Acid. The Uric Acid deposits crystals in the joints, leading to "Gouty Arthritis". The joint pain, inherent to all Arthritis sufferers, is referred to as "Arthralgia". Not only are the joints susceptible to attack, but the surrounding muscles, tissues, and organs are vulnerable to the effects of Arthritis as well. In fact, Arthritis has been known to attack the heart, kidneys, lungs, and liver ...
The end stage of treatment for shoulder arthritis is a shoulder replacement. Depending on the type of shoulder arthritis, this may be a standard total shoulder arthroplasty (replacement) or a reverse total shoulder arthroplasty. There have been many advances in the treatment of shoulder arthritis as well as shoulder replacement implants and techniques.. Arthroscopic Treatment of Shoulder Arthritis can be done in patients with mild to moderate shoulder arthritis with success. This procedure typically involves removal of the osteophytes (bone spurs), release of the contractures of the capsule and removal of any loose cartilage fragments. Often, the biceps is damaged with arthritis as well and this damaged tendon causes a significant amount of the pain experienced. Dr. Lenarz will also often also perform a biceps tenodesis to remove the damaged segment of the tendon and re-attach the tendon to the bone. This is also done arthroscopically.. Additionally, Dr. Lenarz performs an Arthroscopic Biologic ...

Pain in the foot can be caused by arthritis. When arthritis pain affects the big toe joint, this is known as hallux rigidus. In patients with hallux rigidus, pain very often begins on the upper part of the big toe joint with swelling gradually developing and increasing stiffness. Conservative and surgical treatments are possible depending on the degree of the osteoarthritis. Mild hallux rigidus can be treated with special insoles, physiotherapy, or injections that relieve pain. Moderate hallux rigidus can be successfully treated with minor surgical intervention to remove the osseous spurs that cause impingement and pain. End stage arthritis most often requires arthrodesis to fuse the big toe joint and relieve pain. ...

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.
