Hyperuricaemia in patients with right or left heart failure. (1/85)

Based on the clinical observation that patients with right or left heart failure often present with hyperuricaemia, the relation between serum urate values and haemodynamic variables was studied in patients with primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) as well as in patients with advanced ischaemic heart disease or dilated cardiomyopathy. The study was a retrospective analysis of 39 patients with PPH and 36 patients with left heart disease, examining serum urate levels in association with haemodynamic variables. Elevated urate concentrations were found in 79% of the PPH patients. There was no association between serum urate levels and mean pulmonary artery pressures, but a significant correlation was found between urate levels and the cardiac index (r=0.48; p=0.0021) and an even stronger correlation between serum urate levels and mean right atrial pressures (r=0.83; p<0.0001). A similar association was found in a subgroup of 21 PPH patients not receiving diuretics. In 36 patients with ischaemic heart disease or dilated cardiomyopathy, hyperuricaemia was present in 78% and was significantly associated with elevated right atrial pressures (r=0.40; p=0.031) and even more so with elevated left atrial pressures (r=0.55; p=0.0005) but not with the cardiac index (r=0.034; p=0.86). The data show that hyperuricaemia in patients with cardiac dysfunction is closely related to elevated right or left atrial filling pressures.  (+info)

POMC gene-derived peptides activate melanocortin type 3 receptor on murine macrophages, suppress cytokine release, and inhibit neutrophil migration in acute experimental inflammation. (2/85)

To investigate the relevance of adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) therapy in human gouty arthritis, we have tested the effect of several ACTH-related peptides in a murine model of experimental gout. Systemic treatment of mice with ACTH4-10 (MEHFRWG) (10-200 microgram s. c.) inhibited neutrophil accumulation without altering peripheral blood cell counts or circulating corticosterone levels. A similar effect was seen with alpha- and beta-melanocyte stimulating hormones (1-30 microgram s.c.). In vivo release of the chemokine KC-(detected in the lavage fluids before maximal influx of neutrophils) was significantly reduced (-50 to -60%) by ACTH4-10. Macrophage activation in vitro, determined as phagocytosis and KC release, was inhibited by ACTH and ACTH4-10 with approximate IC50 values of 30 nM and 100 microM, respectively. The melanocortin receptor type 3/4 antagonist SHU9119 prevented the inhibitory actions of ACTH4-10 both in vitro and in vivo. However, melanocortin type 3, but not type 4, receptor mRNA was detected in mouse peritoneal macrophages by RT-PCR. Therefore, we propose that activation of this receptor type by ACTH4-10 and related amino acid sequences attenuates KC release (and possibly production of other cytokines) from macrophages with consequent inhibition of the host inflammatory response, thus providing a notional anti-inflammatory mechanism for ACTH that is unrelated to stimulation of glucocorticoid release.  (+info)

Noninflammatory phagocytosis of monosodium urate monohydrate crystals by mouse macrophages. Implications for the control of joint inflammation in gout. (3/85)

OBJECTIVE: We have hypothesized that the process of monocyte to macrophage differentiation may alter the inflammatory response of mononuclear phagocytes to the uptake of monosodium urate monohydrate (MSU) crystals. METHODS: Eight mouse monocyte/macrophage cell lines were arranged in increasing order of differentiation, as judged by expression of the macrophage markers F4/80 and BM 8 and by phagocytic capacity. Secretion of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha) in response to MSU was measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. RESULTS: The panel of monocyte/macrophage cell lines revealed a close linkage between the state of differentiation and the capacity of the cells to ingest MSU crystals. TNFalpha production, however, was not linked to phagocytic ability. Peak TNFalpha levels were synthesized by cells at an intermediate state of differentiation (3.2-14.1 ng/ml), whereas mature macrophages, which efficiently phagocytosed crystals, did not secrete TNFalpha. Mature cell lines produced TNFalpha when stimulated with zymosan (5.9-6.2 ng/ml), but this was abolished by coincubation with MSU crystals. Suppression of the zymosan response was not due to apoptosis or steric hindrance by MSU crystals. Culture supernatants from mature macrophages did not stimulate endothelial cell activation, in contrast to MSU-treated cells at an earlier stage of differentiation, which stimulated intercellular adhesion molecule 1 expression on sEND endothelioma cells through the release of TNFalpha (inhibited 80.6% by anti-TNFa). CONCLUSION: We demonstrated that phagocytosis and TNFalpha production are distinct events in the response of mononuclear phagocytes to urate crystals, and these events can be distinguished at the level of macrophage differentiation. The noninflammatory removal of urate crystals by mature macrophages defines a new pathway that may be important in controlling the development of acute gout in patients with hyperuricemia.  (+info)

Inflammatory pseudotumor of the liver complicated with recurrent gouty arthritis. (4/85)

Inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) of the liver is a rare benign lesion of unknown etiology and is often accompanied by fever. Unexplained persistent fever unresponsive to antibiotics developed in a 70-year-old man suffering from intractable recurrent gouty arthritis. 67Ga-scintigraphy disclosed intense focal uptake in the upper abdomen. The lesion in the left lobe of the liver was an ill-defined hypodensity mass on computed tomographic scan and was enhanced on dynamic magnetic resonance imaging. The tumor was surgically removed and a diagnosis of IPT was made. Fever and arthritis resolved completely after surgery. Possible interaction between IPT of the liver and gouty arthritis was suggested.  (+info)

The prevalence of Mycoplasma fermentans in patients with inflammatory arthritides. (5/85)

OBJECTIVES: To search for evidence that Mycoplasma fermentans is involved in the pathogenesis of some forms of human arthritis by testing for the presence of mycoplasmal DNA in joint material. METHODS: M. fermentans DNA was detected by the identification of a 104-base pair amplification product of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). RESULTS: M. fermentans DNA was detected in synovial fluid samples from six (17%) of 35 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and 18 (21%) of 85 patients with seronegative arthritis. These detection rates were significantly greater than in samples from patients with osteoarthritis or crystal synovitis, none of 26 of these being positive. CONCLUSIONS: M. fermentans could be involved in the pathogenesis of some forms of inflammatory arthritis and this possibility is worthy of further study.  (+info)

Randomised double blind trial of etoricoxib and indometacin in treatment of acute gouty arthritis. (6/85)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the safety and efficacy of etoricoxib, a selective cyclo-oxygenase-2 inhibitor, in comparison with indometacin in the treatment of acute gouty arthritis. DESIGN: Randomised, double blind, active comparator controlled trial. SETTING: 43 outpatient study centres in 11 countries. PARTICIPANTS: 142 men and eight women (75 patients per treatment group) aged 18 years or over presenting with clinically diagnosed acute gout within 48 hours of onset. INTERVENTIONS: Etoricoxib 120 mg administered orally once daily versus indometacin 50 mg administered orally three times daily, both for 8 days. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Patients' assessment of pain in the study joint over days 2 to 5 (primary end point); investigators' and patients' global assessments of response to treatment and tenderness of the study joint (key secondary end points). RESULTS: Etoricoxib showed efficacy comparable to indometacin. Patients' assessment of pain in the study joint (0-4 point Likert scale, "no pain" to "extreme pain") over days 2 to 5 showed a least squares mean change from baseline of -1.72 (95% confidence interval -1.90 to -1.55) for etoricoxib and -1.83 (-2.01 to -1.65) for indometacin. The difference between treatment groups met prespecified comparability criteria. All other efficacy end points, including those reflecting reduction in inflammation and analgesia, provided corroborative evidence of comparable efficacy. Significant pain relief was evident at the first measurement, 4 hours after the first dose of treatment. Prespecified safety analyses revealed that drug related adverse experiences occurred significantly less frequently with etoricoxib (22.7%) than with indometacin (46.7%) (P=0.003), although overall adverse experience rates were similar between the two treatment groups. CONCLUSION: Etoricoxib 120 mg once daily provides rapid and effective treatment for acute gouty arthritis comparable to indometacin 50 mg three times daily. Etoricoxib was generally safe and well tolerated in this study.  (+info)

Activation of melanocortin type 3 receptor as a molecular mechanism for adrenocorticotropic hormone efficacy in gouty arthritis. (7/85)

OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that local activation of melanocortin receptor(s) by adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) could be responsible, at least in part, for its efficacy in human gouty arthritis. METHODS: Monosodium urate monohydrate (MSU) crystals were administered into rat knee joints either alone or with ACTH or a selective melanocortin type 3 receptor (MC3-R) agonist. Neutrophil migration, arthritis score, increases in joint size, and cytokine levels were measured over time. MC3-R expression on rat knee joint macrophages was monitored by electron microscopy and intracellular accumulation of cyclic adenosine monophosphate. RESULTS: MSU crystals produced a knee joint inflammation that was time dependent and was characterized by cell influx and cytokine release that was sensitive to treatment with classic anti-arthritic drugs (indomethacin, colchicine, dexamethasone). Local, but not systemic, ACTH had an antiinflammatory effect in normal rats, a dose that did not alter circulating corticosterone (5 microg). This treatment was also effective in adrenalectomized rats. Rat knee joint macrophages expressed functional MC3-R. The MC3-R antagonist (SHU9119, 10 microg) blocked ACTH antiinflammatory actions, whereas antiinflammatory activity was retained with a selective MC3-R agonist (gamma(2)-melanocyte-stimulating hormone). CONCLUSION: This research provides evidence for a separate mechanism of action of ACTH in experimental gouty arthritis and points to a novel antiinflammatory target (selective agonists at MC3-R) for clinical management of human gouty arthritis and possibly other chronic inflammatory conditions.  (+info)

Rapid induction of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma expression in human monocytes by monosodium urate monohydrate crystals. (8/85)

OBJECTIVE: Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR gamma) is a member of the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily and functions as a key regulator of lipid and glucose metabolism, atherosclerosis, and inflammatory responses. This study was undertaken to evaluate the biologic role of PPAR gamma in self-limiting episodes of acute gouty arthritis. To do this, we investigated PPAR gamma expression by monosodium urate monohydrate (MSU) crystal-stimulated monocytes, and we studied the effects of PPAR gamma ligands on crystal-induced acute inflammation. METHODS: PPAR gamma expression by MSU crystal-stimulated human peripheral blood mononuclear cells was determined by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction and immunostaining. Expression of CD36 on monocytes was detected by flow cytometric analysis. The effects of PPAR gamma ligands on in vitro crystal-induced cytokine production and on in vivo cellular infiltration during crystal-induced acute inflammation were also investigated. RESULTS: MSU crystals rapidly and selectively induced PPAR gamma expression by monocytes. Gene expression was detected as early as 2 hours, and maximum expression was observed at 4 hours after stimulation. The induced PPAR gamma was functional, since a PPAR gamma ligand was able to up-regulate CD36 expression on monocytes. A natural ligand of PPAR gamma, 15-deoxy-Delta(12,14)-prostaglandin J(2) (15deoxy-PGJ(2)), significantly reduced the crystal-induced production of cytokines by monocytes. Indomethacin inhibited cytokine production only at high concentrations, and an antidiabetic thiazolidinedione (troglitazone) failed to exert significant effects. Administration of troglitazone and 15deoxy-PGJ(2) significantly prevented cellular accumulation in a mouse air-pouch model of MSU crystal-induced acute inflammation. CONCLUSION: Rapid induction of PPAR gamma expression on monocytes by MSU crystals may contribute, at least in part, to the spontaneous resolution of acute attacks of gout.  (+info)

Gouty Arthritis lead to a sudden attack from the stiffness, burning pain and all joint swelling. These sudden attacks can occur repeatedly unless gouty Arthritis is. Eventually, this condition could be unhealthy to your tendons, anatomical and joints. Gouty Arthritis is a result of excessive uric acid around the blood. People with high levels of uric acid in the blood fail to get gout but once the levels of uric acid gets too much, it may create hard crystals on your own joints. Individuals drinking past the boundary alcohol, who are overweight or eat a lot of fish and meat full of purines are frequently getting gouty. In accessory, some medications such as water pills deliver gout as well. Some of the people common signs of an episode of gout are sudden attacks past tenderness, redness, swelling and intense pain within the big toe. It could also be possible to experience attacks close to ankle, foot and knees. These attacks usually last for a few days or several weeks yet one more attack may ...
In a previous article I discussed a Treatment of acute gouty Arthritis (GA). Your next Ill focus on Treatment late chronic disease. The aims of chronic GA Treatment should be prevent recurrent attacks by reducing the serum uric acid (UA) properly introducing 6mgs/dl, and addressing other associated medical conditions which could be aggravating GA. These contain obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, drugs the patient are really taking that can elevate UA that is to say diuretics, and OsteoArthritis. With frequent GA, patient can develop extended problems including the emergence of tophi (deposits of UA along side the skin and inside vigorous organs), joint destruction, vesica stones, and kidney breakdown. The Treatment of lingering GA involves dietary sessions, medication adjustment, and specific medicines to remedy GA. GA medicines reduce serum UA. They do this from various mechanisms including reducing the production of uric acid, increasing the removal of uric acid through the kidneys, and ...

CONCLUSION: The tophus represents a complex and organized chronic inflammatory tissue response to monosodium urate monohydrate crystals involving both innate and adaptive immune cells.

Gout (also known as gouty arthritis) is a condition caused by a buildup of the salts of uric acid (a normal byproduct of the diet) in the joints. A single big toe joint is the most commonly affected area, possibly because it is subject to so much pressure in walking. Attacks of gouty arthritis are extremely painful. Men are more likely to be afflicted than women. Diets heavy in red meat, rich sauces, shellfish, and brandy have been linked to gout. However, other protein compounds in foods, such as lentils and beans, may play a role ...

To the best of our knowledge, our research is the first study demonstrating MPV as a poor prognostic factor for ACVM in patients with GA based on results from both univariate and multivariate analyses. This study showed that MPV was significantly lower in GA and RA patients with respect to healthy controls. In addition, NLR was seen to be a risk factor in RA patients in univariate analysis. In addition, NLR was higher in patients with acute GA and active RA than in healthy controls; and NLR was observed to normalize after treatment. Our study, to our knowledge, is unique for revealing that NLR may be a useful biological marker in evaluating acute inflammation and response to treatment in GA. In addition to the platelet count, the most frequent test to evaluate platelets is the MPV. Previous studies showed that MPV correlated with platelet function and activation, and larger thrombocytes behaved more actively when compared to smaller platelets.(24) Studies recently showed the correlation between ...

Unlike osteoarthritis or the "wear and tear" arthritis we all suffer, the symptoms of gouty arthritis are different in that it is manifested by an acute onset of severe pain, redness and swelling, many times for no apparent reason. Many patients will complain of a sudden onset of pain occurring early in the morning while asleep. The theory behind this is that when sleeping, the feet are elevated and there is a slight diminishment of blood to the feet which in turn decreases the temperature of the feet just enough for the uric acid to crystallize in the joint of the foot and create pain.. Other factors that may precipitate this attack include local trauma, including foot surgery, with an acute medical illness, or following a high purine (protein) diet or alcohol binge.. These attacks most commonly occur in the foot, primarily in the big toe joint. The next most common locations are the middle of the foot followed by the ankle joint. They can also occur at the attachment of tendons such as the ...

Background. There are few data on anakinra use after failure of conventional medications for crystal-induced peripheral arthritis and/or crowned dens syndrome among complex hospitalized patients. Methods. We retrospectively analyzed the outcome of six patients affected with subacute crystal-induced arthritis who had received anakinra in second or third line therapy, including three patients with crowned dens syndrome and three others with gouty arthritis. Patients comorbidities, reasons for anakinra use and associated drugs, and outcomes were recorded. Results. All patients presented with elevated inflammatory syndrome, systemic symptoms with poly/oligoarthritis. Except for absolute contraindications, all patients were previously treated with full or decreased dose of NSAID, colchicine, and/or glucocorticoids, with unsatisfactory response. All three gouty patients exhibited complete responses in all acute involvements under anakinra within 3 to 5 days, including one of them who needed the

Phase III studies have been completed using both canakinumab and rilonacept in the management of acute gout flare. In two 12 week trials (b-relieved and b-relieved II), 416 gouty arthritis patients in flare were randomized to either canakinumab 150mg subcutaneously or triamcinolone acetate 40mg intramuscularly. Superiority was significantly demonstrated over triamcinolone acetate at 12 weeks. A total of 317 patients then completed a 12-week extension study. Over the full 24-week study period, canakinumab delayed time to new flare with risk reduction of 52% (b-relieved) and 60% (b-relieved II), respectively, compared with triamcinolone acetate.[24] In the same patient population, inflammation markers (CRP and SAA) and joint tenderness and swelling were significantly diminished by 24 h as compared with triamcinolone acetate and response was sustained.[25] ...
Gouty arthritis is not a difficult diagnosis to make. Patients often suffer from recurrent attacks because of the complexity of the treatment regimen, with the potential for three medications to be taken on different schedules. Wortmann discusses an analogy that may make understanding gout easier for both patients and physicians.. The analogy used is, "Gout is like matches." Everyone has uric acid in their blood; high levels of uric acid may cause gout. When too much uric acid accumulates around a persons joints, the uric acid acts like matches. An acute gout attack may be likened to "setting the joint on fire." A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) should be taken at this point, to prevent more matches from catching on fire. It isnt important which NSAID is used to "put out the fire," but how quickly the fire is put out is very important. The more matches that catch fire, the longer it will take to put the fire out. However, if the matches still exist, they can catch on fire again-so ...

Being overweight puts weight-bearing joints under extra pressure and stress. Because the joints are eccentric (not in the centerline of your body), the force across the joint is three times greater than a persons body weight when that person balances on one leg. For example, a 150-pound person places up to 450 pounds of pressure on the joint. The good news is for every single pound lost; subtract three pounds of force off the ankle. The bad news is for every one pound gained; add three pounds of force to the ankle. Extra pressure on your joints can make arthritic symptoms worse, leading to pain and stiffness.. A well-balanced diet coupled with regular doctor prescribed low-impact exercise can help reduce excess body weight, decrease pressure on the joints and increase joint strength. Many claims have been made concerning diet as a cause of arthritis but none have been proven to date. If you have been diagnosed with gouty arthritis, some dietary restrictions are indicated.

Results Exposure of THP-1 cells to MSU crystals or F (1 mg/ml) induced a moderate release of IL-8 (MSU: 211.66±32.00 pg/ml; F: 466.08±49.16 pg/ml), but not of IL-1β. Cotreatment of cells with MSU crystals and HSA or Hp (0.1 mg/ml) did not affect the cytokine production, while F led to a significantly enhanced IL-1β (71.15±5.64 pg/ml) and IL-8 (2649.62±55.91 pg/ml) secretion. HSA and Hp alone did not cause changes on the cytokine levels. qRT-PCR analysis indicated consistently increased IL-1β mRNA expression in THP-1 cells treated with fibrinogen compared with non-treated cells (49.75±3.54 fold); this was markedly amplified by MSU crystals (103.25±5.73 fold).

Gout or gouty arthritis is a chronic disease characterized by the appearance of attacks of pain and the presence of uric acid crystals in joints. The urate crystal formation is triggered by the intake of foods high in purines such as seafood and meat. The classic symptoms of gout are localized redness, pain and heat in the affected areas. Making dietary changes is a reliable strategy for the treatment of gout naturally. Here, we focus on consumption of strawberries for natural gout treatment.. Strawberries and gout.

Gout is an ancient disease which dates back to the time of Babylon. Its name comes from the Latin word gutta, (meaning drop), which reflect an old belief that the disease is caused by a poison which fall into the joint drop by drop. The disease is quite prevalent nowadays and is considered as the most common inflammatory type of arthritis in men affecting 1-2% of adults in Western countries, with male to female ratio of 3.6:1. It is rare in pre-menopausal women and its incidence and prevalence increases with age. Gout is an inflammatory syndrome caused as a response to monosodium urate monohydrate crystals (MSUM) formed in humans in the presence of having elevated serum urate concentration what is known as hyperuricemia. Hyperuricemia is defined as serum urate levels above 6.8mg/dl (≥ 400µmol/L) which is the level above which the physiological saturation threshold is exceeded.. ...
Who Gets Gout?. Predominantly middle-aged men, however, it is becoming more frequent to see men in their late 20s and earlier 30s challenged with the symptoms of gouty arthritis.

What it means: Probably gout. Yes, that old-fashioned-sounding disease is still very much around - and you dont have to be over 65 to get it. Gout is a form of arthritis (also called "gouty arthritis") thats usually caused by too much uric acid, a natural substance. The built-up uric acid forms needlelike crystals, especially at low body temperatures. And the coolest part of the body, farthest from the heart, happens to be the big toe.. "Three-fourths of the time, you wake up with a red-hot swollen toe joint as the first presentation of gout," says podiatrist Andersen.. More clues: Swelling and shiny red or purplish skin - along with a sensation of heat and pain - can also occur in the instep, the Achilles tendon, the knees, and the elbows. Anyone can develop gout, though men in their 40s and 50s are especially prone. Women with gout tend to be postmenopausal..

Results: The median age at first visit was 6 yrs. The median follow-up period after 15 yrs of age was 12 yrs. Four patients with complex anatomy died. AI deteriorated in 21 patients, and 46 patients (68%) had an AI ≤2 during the last visit. Systemic complications occurred in 27 patients (40%), including hemoptysis (16), gouty arthritis (10), brain abscess (4), renal failure (4), pulmonary thrombosis (3), and cerebral infarction (2). Medications for heart failure were given to 48 patients, including medications for arrhythmia (15), antiplatelet therapy (12) and home oxygen therapy (24). In patients with AI deterioration, the incidence of complex anatomy was higher (67% vs 37%, p=0.02), and the mean value of cardiothoracic ratio at the last visit was higher (60±1.7% vs 56±1.2%, p=0.045) than in those with no AI deterioration. However, the mean value of percutaneous oxygen saturation at the last visit showed no significant difference between the two groups ...
Certain types of foods have in their composition purine. These compounds are known to rise the levels of uric acid. In turn, uric acid is what cause a gout. So, if you stop eating such foods, or at least try to reduce the number, then you can prevent gout attacks.

These are just some of the foods to avoid if suffering form a gout, or if you are one of those people susceptible to a gout. Furthermore, alcohol is also known to do a lot of damage in gout cases. Try to avoid as much as possible drinking alcohol, especially beer, if you want to lower the number of gout flares. If you can avoid the purine foods and alcohol, you will surely feel a difference in the number of gout flares, as well as in the gout signs. Levels of uric acid can also be risen by sugar and fructose. So if you want to control your gout case, then try to avoid them as ...

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 ...
If patients with chronic hyperuricemia are left untreated, gouty tophi can develop and usually deposit in subcutaneous tissues. Tophi have also been shown to occur within joints, as was the case in our patient, but have also been shown to deposit in various tissues such as kidney, breast and spinal cord [1]. The histological hallmark of a gouty tophi is created when MSU crystals aggregate with intercrystalline matrix and induce surrounding granuloma formation [2]. The MSU crystals serve as the inciting antigen which leads to an intense inflammatory reaction of macrophages, lymphocytes and large foreign body giant cells which may have completely or partially engulfed the mass of crystals [3].. Hypercalcemia has been described in patients with many types of granulomatous disorders such as tuberculosis, Wegeners granulomatosis, and Crohns disease. By far the most widely evaluated and one of the more common causes of hypercalcemia due to granulomatous inflammation is sarcoidosis [4, 5]. The ...
Calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystals are associated with a range of clinical syndromes, which have been given various names, based upon which clinical symptoms or radiographic findings are most prominent.[11] A task force of the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) made recommendations on preferred terminology.[5] Accordingly, calcium pyrophosphate deposition (CPPD) is an umbrella term for the various clinical subsets, whose naming reflects an emphasis on particular features. For example, pseudogout refers to the acute symptoms of joint inflammation or synovitis: red, tender, and swollen joints that may resemble gouty arthritis (a similar condition in which monosodium urate crystals are deposited within the joints). Chondrocalcinosis,[2][3] on the other hand, refers to the radiographic evidence of calcification in hyaline and/or fibrocartilage. "Osteoarthritis (OA) with CPPD" reflects a situation where osteoarthritis features are the most apparent. Pyrophosphate arthropathy refers to ...
A 90-year-old woman with a history of stage-3 chronic kidney disease, hypertension, and gout presented with chills and severe pain in the first toe on the left foot. Physical examination revealed large, firm nodules bilaterally on her metatarsophalangeal joints. The metatarsophalangeal joint on the left foot was abraded and draining a chalky white substance (panel A). Plain radiographs and magnetic resonance images were consistent with tophaceous gout and acute osteomyelitis (panel B). A blood culture was positive for methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus. The patient had no other stigmata of endocarditis, and echocardiography results showed no vegetations. The patient underwent partial first ray amputation on the left foot. Histologic findings confirmed the diagnosis of chronic tophaceous gout complicated by acute osteomyelitis. Her surgical margins were clear of infection. Intravenous antibiotics were administered, and she was discharged to home 3 days after the operation. ...

Canakinumab (INN, trade name Ilaris, previously ACZ885) is a human monoclonal antibody targeted at interleukin-1 beta. It has no cross-reactivity with other members of the interleukin-1 family, including interleukin-1 alpha. Canakinumab was approved for the treatment of cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in June 2009 and by the European Medicines Agency in October 2009. CAPS is a spectrum of autoinflammatory syndromes including familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome, Muckle-Wells syndrome, and neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease. In September 2016, FDA approved the use of canakinumab on 3 additional rare and serious auto-inflammatory diseases: Tumor necrosis factor receptor associated periodic syndrome (TRAPS), Hyperimmunoglobulin D syndrome (HIDS)/Mevalonate kinase deficiency (MKD) and Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF). Canakinumab was being developed by Novartis for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, but this trial ...
