Distribution of yttrium 90 ferric hydroxide colloid and gold 198 colloid after injection into knee. (1/735)

Thirteen knees were injected with yttrium 90(90Y) ferric hydroxide colloid, and 12 with gold 198(198Au) colloid for treatment of persistent synovitis. Retention in the knee and uptake in lymph nodes and liver were measured by a quantitative scanning technique. There was no significant difference in the retention in the knee of the two different colloids. A tendency towards higher lymph node uptake was observed with 198Au compared with 90y. The inflammatory activity of the knee at the time of treatment may have influenced the subsequent lymph node uptake of 198Au, but not that of the 90Y, nor the overall leakage of either from the knee. 90Yferric hydroxide colloid was retained in the treated knee at least as well as other colloids which have been used for this purpose.  (+info)

IL-16 as an anti-inflammatory cytokine in rheumatoid synovitis. (2/735)

T lymphocytes are a major component of the inflammatory infiltrate in rheumatoid synovitis, but their exact role in the disease process is not understood. Functional activities of synovial T cells were examined by adoptive transfer experiments in human synovium-SCID mouse chimeras. Adoptive transfer of tissue-derived autologous CD8+ T cells induced a marked reduction in the activity of lesional T cells and macrophages. Injection of CD8+, but not CD4+, T cells decreased the production of tissue IFN-gamma, IL-1beta, and TNF-alpha by >90%. The down-regulatory effect of adoptively transferred CD8+ T cells was not associated with depletion of synovial CD3+ T cells or synovial CD68+ macrophages, and it could be blocked by Abs against IL-16, a CD8+ T cell-derived cytokine. In the synovial tissue, CD8+ T cells were the major source of IL-16, a natural ligand of the CD4 molecule that can anergize CD4-expressing cells. The anti-inflammatory activity of IL-16 in rheumatoid synovitis was confirmed by treating synovium-SCID mouse chimeras with IL-16. Therapy for 14 days with recombinant human IL-16 significantly inhibited the production of IFN-gamma, IL-1beta, and TNF-alpha in the synovium. We propose that tissue-infiltrating CD8+ T cells in rheumatoid synovitis have anti-inflammatory activity that is at least partially mediated by the release of IL-16. Spontaneous production of IL-16 in synovial lesions impairs the functional activity of CD4+ T cells but is insufficient to completely abrogate their stimulation. Supplemental therapy with IL-16 may be a novel and effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis.  (+info)

Blood-induced joint damage: a canine in vivo study. (3/735)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the direct and indirect (via synovial inflammation) effects of intraarticular bleeding on cartilage in vivo. METHODS: Right knees of 14 beagle dogs were injected with autologous blood on days 0 and 2. Cartilage matrix proteoglycan turnover, collagen damage, and synovial inflammation of these knees, including the cartilage-destructive properties of the synovial tissue, were determined and compared with those of the left control knees on day 4 (short-term effects; n = 7) and day 16 (long-term effects; n = 7). RESULTS: Injected knees had a diminished content of proteoglycans in the cartilage matrix, and release of proteoglycans was enhanced (days 4 and 16). The synthesis of proteoglycans was significantly inhibited on day 4 but was enhanced on day 16. On day 4 more collagen was denatured in the injected joint than in the control joint; this effect was no longer detectable on day 16. Synovial tissue showed signs of inflammation on day 4 and day 16 but had cartilage-destructive properties only on day 16. CONCLUSION: In vivo exposure of articular cartilage to blood for a relatively short time results in lasting changes in chondrocyte activity and in cartilage matrix integrity, changes that may predict lasting joint damage over time. Interestingly, the direct effect of blood on cartilage precedes the indirect effect via synovial inflammation.  (+info)

Finger joint synovitis in rheumatoid arthritis: quantitative assessment by magnetic resonance imaging. (4/735)

OBJECTIVE: To assess quantitatively, by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the synovial membrane volume in second to fifth metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joints in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and healthy controls, and to compare the synovial membrane volumes with a more easily obtained semi-quantitative score for hypertrophic synovial membrane. PATIENTS AND METHODS: MCP joints of the dominant hand of 37 patients and five controls were examined clinically and by MRI. Laboratory assessments were performed. RESULTS: Median synovial membrane volumes were considerably larger in clinically active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) joints (e.g. 0.97 ml in the second MCP joint) than in clinically inactive joints (0.54 ml) and control joints (0.04 ml). Nevertheless, group distributions overlapped and marked volume differences were found within clinically uniform groups. The semi-quantitative score was highly correlated with the synovial volumes (Spearman rho = 0.79; P < 0.00001). Synovial membrane volumes were poorly related to the presence of rheumatoid factor and to laboratory markers of inflammation. CONCLUSION: These findings suggest that synovial membrane volumes, as determined by MRI, in finger joints are related to clinical signs of synovitis, but also that the volumes may vary more than what can be accounted for by the clinical appearances. A semi-quantitative score may be sufficient for more routine purposes.  (+info)

Intra-articular primatised anti-CD4: efficacy in resistant rheumatoid knees. A study of combined arthroscopy, magnetic resonance imaging, and histology. (5/735)

OBJECTIVES: CD4+ T cells sustain the chronic synovial inflammatory response in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). SB-210396/CE 9.1 is an anti-CD4 monoclonal antibody that has documented efficacy in RA when given intravenously. This study aimed to establish the safety and efficacy of the intra-articular administration of SB-210396/CE 9.1 compared with placebo, examining its mode of action using a combined imaging approach of arthroscopy, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and histology. METHODS: Thirteen RA patients with active, resistant knee synovitis, were randomised to intra-articular injection of placebo (n=3), 0.4 mg (n=3) or 40 mg (n=7) of anti-CD4 after sequential dynamic gadolinium enhanced MRI, followed by same day arthroscopy and synovial membrane biopsy. Imaging and arthroscopic synovial membrane sampling were repeated at six weeks. This study used a unique region of interest (ROI) analysis mapping the MRI area analysed to the specific biopsy site identified arthroscopically, thus providing data for all three modalities at the same synovial membrane site. RESULTS: 12 patients completed the study (one placebo treated patient refused further MRI). Arthroscopic improvement was observed in 0 of 2 placebo patients but in 10 of 10 patients receiving active drug (>20% in 6 of 10). Improvement in MRI was consistently observed in all patients of the 40 mg group but not in the other two groups. A reduction in SM CD4+ score was noted in the 40 mg group and in the 0.4 mg group. Strong correlations both before and after treatment, were identified between the three imaging modalities. Intra-articular delivery of SB-210396/CE 9.1 was well tolerated. CONCLUSIONS: SB-210396/CE 9.1 is safe when administered by intra-articular injection. A trend toward efficacy was found by coordinated MRI, arthroscopic, and histological imaging, not seen in the placebo group. The value of ROI analysis was demonstrated.  (+info)

Changes in articular synovial lining volume measured by magnetic resonance in a randomized, double-blind, controlled trial of intra-articular samarium-153 particulate hydroxyapatite for chronic knee synovitis. (6/735)

OBJECTIVE: Magnetic resonance techniques have recently been investigated as tools with which to monitor inflammatory joint disease. Our aim was to use a contrast-enhanced T1-weighted protocol to monitor the short-term changes in knee synovial lining volume in a double-blind, randomized, controlled trial of intra-articular samarium-153 particulate hydroxyapatite (Sm-153 PHYP). METHODS: Twenty-four out-patients with chronic knee synovitis, from a cohort who had been recruited to a long-term clinical efficacy trial, were recruited for this study. Patients received either intra-articular Sm-153 PHYP combined with 40 mg triamcinolone hexacetonide or 40 mg intra-articular triamcinolone hexacetonide alone. Synovial lining volumes were calculated from three-dimensional T1-weighted contrast-enhanced images made before and after contrast enhancement with thresholding and pixel counting, immediately before and 3 months after treatment. RESULTS: Paired pre- and post-treatment magnetic resonance data were obtained for 18/24 (75%) patients. There was no significant difference in mean pre-treatment synovial volume between the two treatment groups (139 vs 127 ml). A mean reduction in synovial lining volume was detected in the Sm-153 PHYP/steroid-treated group (139 to 110 ml, P = 0.07) and in the steroid-treated group (127 to 58 ml, P < 0.001). The reduction was significantly greater in the steroid-treated group (-61% vs -23%, P < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Short-term changes in articular synovial lining in response to intra-articular treatment for chronic synovitis may be monitored by magnetic resonance imaging. After 3 months, a greater mean reduction in synovial lining volume had occurred in response to intra-articular steroid alone compared to combined Sm-153 PHYP/steroid injection.  (+info)

The long-term course of shoulder complaints: a prospective study in general practice. (7/735)

OBJECTIVE: Assessment of the long-term course of shoulder complaints in patients in general practice with special focus on changes in diagnostic category and fluctuations in the severity of the complaints. DESIGN: Prospective descriptive study. SETTING: Four general practices in The Netherlands. METHOD: All patients (101) with shoulder complaints seen in a 5 month period were included. Assessment took place 26 weeks and 12-18 months after inclusion in the study with a pain questionnaire and a physical examination. RESULTS: A total of 51% of the patients experienced (mostly recurrent) complaints after 26 weeks and 41% after 12-18 months. Diagnostic changes were found over the course of time, mostly from synovial disorders towards functional disorders of the structures of the shoulder girdle, but also the other way round. Although 52 of the 101 patients experienced complaints in week 26, 62% of those patients considered themselves 'cured'. After 12-18 months, 51% of the 39 patients experiencing complaints felt 'cured'. CONCLUSION: Many patients seen with shoulder complaints in general practice have recurrent complaints. The nature of these complaints varies considerably over the course of time, leading to changes in diagnostic category. Because of the fluctuating severity of the complaints over time, feeling 'cured' or not 'cured' is also subject to change over time.  (+info)

Remitting seronegative symmetrical synovitis with pitting oedema (RS3PE) syndrome: a prospective follow up and magnetic resonance imaging study. (8/735)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the clinical characteristics of patients with "pure" remitting seronegative symmetrical synovitis with pitting oedema (RS3PE) syndrome, and to investigate its relation with polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR). Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used to describe the anatomical structures affected by inflammation in pure RS3PE syndrome. METHODS: A prospective follow up study of 23 consecutive patients with pure RS3PE syndrome and 177 consecutive patients with PMR diagnosed over a five year period in two Italian secondary referral centres of rheumatology. Hands or feet MRI, or both, was performed at diagnosis in 7 of 23 patients. RESULTS: At inspection evidence of hand and/or foot tenosynovitis was present in all the 23 patients with pure RS3PE syndrome. Twenty one (12%) patients with PMR associated distal extremity swelling with pitting oedema. No significant differences in the sex, age at onset of disease, acute phase reactant values at diagnosis, frequency of peripheral synovitis and carpal tunnel syndrome and frequency of HLA-B7 antigen were present between patients with pure RS3PE and PMR. In both conditions no patient under 50 was observed, the disease frequency increased significantly with age and the highest frequency was present in the age group 70-79 years. Clinical symptoms for both conditions responded promptly to corticosteroids and no patient developed rheumatoid arthritis during the follow up. However, the patients with pure RS3PE syndrome were characterised by shorter duration of treatment, lower cumulative corticosteroid dose and lower frequency of systemic signs/symptoms and relapse/recurrence. Hands and feet MRI showed evidence of tenosynovitis in five patients and joint synovitis in three patients. CONCLUSION: The similarities of demographic, clinical, and MRI findings between RS3PE syndrome and PMR and the concurrence of the two syndromes suggest that these conditions may be part of the same disease and that the diagnostic labels of PMR and RS3PE syndrome may not indicate a real difference. The presence of distal oedema seems to indicate a better prognosis.  (+info)

Overall, both in whole synovial tissue and in sorted cells, the cytokine mRNA expression profile was very similar in early synovitis patients who subsequently developed RA or had resolving synovitis, and in patients with early or established RA. In comparison, cytokines and chemokines were upregulated in early and established arthritis patients compared to uninflamed controls. The finding that cytokine mRNA expression is largely similar in early synovitis patients who develop RA or have resolving disease, and in the early and established phases of RA, suggests that cytokine expression is reflective of general synovial inflammation, rather than being specific for early synovitis outcome or stage of RA ...
Residual subclinical synovitis can still be present in joints of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients despite clinical remission and has been linked to ongoing radiological damage. The aim of the present study was to assess subclinical synovitis by positron emission tomography (PET; macrophage tracer 11C-(R)-PK11195) in early RA patients with minimal disease activity without clinically apparent synovitis (MDA); and its relationship with clinical outcome and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), respectively. Baseline PET and MRI of hands/wrists were performed in 25 early MDA RA patients (DAS 44 | 1.6; no tender/swollen joints) on combined DMARD therapy. PET tracer uptake (semi-quantitative score: 0-3) and MRI synovitis and bone marrow edema (OMERACT RAMRIS) were assessed in MCP, PIP and wrist joints (22 joints/patient; cumulative score). Eleven of 25 patients (44 %) showed enhanced tracer uptake in ≥ 1 joint. Fourteen of these 25 (56 %) patients developed a flare within 1 year: 8/11 (73 %) with a positive,
There is mounting evidence that early disease modifying treatment improves the outcome in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA)1 and that treatment should begin before the disease is established and irreversible damage has occurred.2 This evidence has led to the development of early synovitis clinics in many rheumatology units to fast track appropriate patients. Early referral for specialist advice has been shown to be associated with improved health and physical function, with the concept of early treatment of RA shortening observation periods before referral in general practice.3 A shortened observation time is important as Irvine et al showed that 73% of patients waiting more than one year from the onset of symptoms already had radiological evidence of erosive change.4 Despite the improved observation times, there are few published data showing whether referrals to early synovitis clinics are appropriate. We reviewed all referrals (n=156) to our early synovitis clinic at the Royal ...

OBJECTIVES: Early therapy improves outcomes in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). It is therefore important to improve predictive algorithms for RA in early disease. This study evaluated musculoskeletal ultrasound, a sensitive tool for the detection of synovitis and erosions, as a predictor of outcome in very early synovitis. METHODS: 58 patients with clinically apparent synovitis of at least one joint and symptom duration of ≤3 months underwent clinical, laboratory, radiographic and 38 joint ultrasound assessments and were followed prospectively for 18 months, determining outcome by 1987 American College of Rheumatology (ACR) and 2010 ACR/European League Against Rheumatism criteria. Sensitivity and specificity for 1987 RA criteria were determined for ultrasound variables and logistic regression models were then fitted to evaluate predictive ability over and above the Leiden rule. RESULTS: 16 patients resolved, 13 developed non-RA persistent disease and 29 developed RA by 1987 criteria. Ultrasound
We found that clinical signs of synovitis in hands and feet are associated with the development of joint damage progression at the individual joint level. The association is as strong for swelling as for tenderness and similarly strong for the outcomes erosion progression, JSN progression and SHS progression.. We showed a dose-response relationship, indicating that a persistent synovitis, that is, the presence of clinical synovitis during two or more out of five clinical assessments, was associated with a higher risk for progression compared with clinical synovitis at only one assessment. The association is probably even stronger for joints that show signs of inflammation during three to five visits, however, due to a dynamic treatment strategy aiming at low disease activity in the BeSt study, the number of joints with synovitis during more than two visits is limited, and therefore we had insufficient power to assess a stronger dose-response effect. Furthermore, our results suggest that a joint ...
Remitting seronegative symmetrical synovitis with pitting edema is a rare syndrom of undetermined etiology up to this time. It affects predominantly elderly Caucasians males. This syndrom was described in 1985 by McCarty et al. and it is clinically characterised with an acute commence of symptoms, with no erosive lesions, with seronegativity and an excellent prognosis. The synovitis in majority of cases went into remission after therapy of low doses of corticosteroids or hydroxychloroquine and remained in remission even after all antirheumatic therapy was stopped. These features make RS3PE syndrom possible to distinguish it from rheumatoid arthritis and polymyalgia rheumatica. The occurrence of RS3PE syndrome in association with malign disorders has a big clinical importance ...
Remitting seronegative symmetrical synovitis with pitting edema (abbreviated RS3PE or sometimes RS3PE) is a rare syndrome identified by symmetric polyarthritis, synovitis, acute pitting edema (swelling) of the back of the hands and/or feet, and a negative serum rheumatoid factor. If no underlying disorder can be identified (idiopathic RS3PE), this entity has an excellent prognosis and responds well to treatment. RS3PE typically involves the joints of the extremities, specifically the metacarpophalangeal and proximal interphalangeal joints, wrists, shoulders, elbows, knees and ankles. It is more common in older adults, with the mean age between 70 and 80 years in most studies. It occurs more often in men than in women with a 2:1 ratio. It is unknown how common this condition is. Individuals affected by RS3PE typically have repeated episodes of inflammation of the lining of their synovial joints and swelling of the end portion of the limbs. The arms and hands are more commonly affected than the ...

Objective: To evaluate the association between synovitis on contrast enhanced (CE) MRI with microscopic and macroscopic features of synovial tissue inflammation. Method: Forty-one patients (mean age 60 years, 61% women) with symptomatic radiographic knee OA were studied: twenty underwent arthroscopy (macroscopic features were scored (0-4), synovial biopsies obtained), twenty-one underwent arthroplasty (synovial tissues were collected). After haematoxylin and eosin staining, the lining cell layer, synovial stroma and inflammatory infiltrate of synovial tissues were scored (0-3). T1-weighted CE-MRIs (3T) were used to semi-quantitatively score synovitis at 11 sites (0-22) according to Guermazi etal. Spearmans rank correlations were calculated. Results: The mean (SD) MRI synovitis score was 8.0 (3.7) and the total histology grade was 2.5 (1.6). Median (range) scores of macroscopic features were 2 (1-3) for neovascularization, 1 (0-3) for hyperplasia, 2 (0-4) for villi and 2 (0-3) for fibrin ...
Sensitivity and specificity of the 2010 ACR/EULAR criteria using different definitions of synovitis to identify patients who developed a disease requiring methotrexate (MTX) treatment within 1 year were 58.5% and 79.4%, respectively, for clinical synovitis (tenderness or swelling), 78.0% and 79.4%, respectively, for ultrasound-detected synovitis with a gray-scale (GS) imaging score ≥1 (GS ≥1 ultrasound synovitis), and 56.1% and 93.7%, respectively, for GS ≥2 ultrasound synovitis or a synovial power Doppler (PD) signal score ≥1 (GS ≥2/PD ≥1 ultrasound synovitis). Receiver operating characteristic curve analysis for the criteria scores revealed the largest area under the curve with GS ≥2/PD ≥1 ultrasound synovitis. ...
Samples from 17 patients showed the presence of grade 2 and/or 3 aggregates; in three cases only perivascular cuffing was demonstrated. Fully formed follicular-like structures, with centrally located CD21+ FDC and T/B segregation, were seen in 7 of the 20 patients (35%). BCA-1 and SLC were expressed within lymphocytic clusters in 18 of 20 and 15 of 20 patients, respectively. BCA-1 and SLC expression was associated with mature follicular organisations. However they were detected also in the absence of fully formed lymphoid-like structures. Production of BCA-1 and SLC was established by in situ hybridisation to localize within lymphocytic clusters but even in the absence of mature follicles. ...

Results. Of the 3109 articles retrieved, 26 original studies fulfilled criteria of the systematic review. The most frequent diagnosis tested was rheumatoid arthritis, followed by inflammatory polyarthritis, and spondyloarthropathies. The main prognostic outcome evaluated was development of erosions, followed by median Larsen score, remission, Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) score, and persistent synovitis. In total, 122 genetic markers were tested. No genetic marker had a high likelihood ratio for the diagnosis of a specific rheumatic disease. The shared epitope was associated with poor prognosis (erosions, HAQ , 1, mortality, and persistent synovitis). Other genes did not predict outcome in undifferentiated arthritis. Other outcomes for persistent disease or disability were not studied in depth. ...

The results of our study confirm the high prevalence (66.7%) of ACPA in PR, a figure slightly higher than that found in our previous series (56.6%)3 and in other white populations (55%)4. Studies have found lower prevalences of 42%19 and 46.6%5 in nonwhite populations, possibly reflecting ethnic differences or different diagnostic criteria. Our patients with PR had not progressed to RA or other rheumatic diseases after a long followup (mean disease duration of 11.6 yrs). We also observed an absence of subclinical synovitis on US in the intercritical period in most patients with PR, even those who were ACPA-positive.. Imaging studies in patients with PR have focused on searching for synovitis during the acute attacks but not during the intercritical period. These studies confirmed synovial inflammation in a significant but variable proportion of cases11,12,20, results found in most of our patients during the acute phase. However, although PR is considered an intermittent entity, with no evidence ...
Background/Purpose: To investigate the local inflammatory activity of the synovium by using dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and cartilage biochemical composition of the MCP-joints 2 and 3 by using Delayed Gadolinium-Enhanced MRI (dGEMRIC) in patients with early rheumatoid Arthritis (eRA) treated with methotrexate.. Methods: MCP joints 2 and 3 of 28 patients with early RA (disease duration ≤ 6 months) were examined prior to methotrexate (baseline) as well as 3 and 6 months after the therapy-initiation. MRI perfusion parameters and dGEMRIC index were calculated. OMERACT RA MRI score (RAMRIS), including synovitis, bone marrow edema (BME) and erosion subscores, and clinical parameters (CRP and DAS28) were registered at all of the time points.. Results: Local perfusion in dynamic MRI decreased significantly after initiation of methotrexate-therapy and correlates significantly with the DAS28 improvement after 3 months (p , 0.05). The extent of local inflammation significantly correlated ...

Ultrasonography (US) is a useful screening method for the diagnosis of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) and congenital spinal anomalies in infants. In addition, US is a useful, noninvasive imaging modality for the diagnosis of transient synovitis in children. The early detection of DDH leads to a better prognosis without surgical intervention. Moreover, spinal US allows the detection of congenital malformations and can also demonstrate normal anatomy and normal variants that may resemble disorders. Therefore, radiologists should be familiar with the sonographic anatomy of the normal infant hip, scanning and measurement techniques for DDH, the US features of transient synovitis in children, spinal US techniques, and the US features of normal anatomical structures, normal variants, and congenital spinal anomalies ...

MOST is a cohort study of individuals who have or are at high risk of knee OA. An unselected subset of participants who volunteered obtained CE 1.5T MRI of one knee. Synovitis was scored in six compartments and a summary score was created. This subset also had fasting plasma, analyzed by gas chromatography for phospholipid fatty acid content, and non-CE MRI, read for cartilage morphology according to the Whole-Organ Magnetic Resonance Imaging Score (WORMS) method. The association between synovitis and cartilage morphology and plasma PUFAs was assessed using logistic regression after controlling for the effects of age, sex, and BMI. 472 out of 535 subjects with CE MRI had complete data on synovitis, cartilage morphology and plasma phospholipids. Mean age was 60 years, mean BMI 30, and 50% were women ...

In total, 10 patients with gray-scale synovitis, 35 with joint effusion, and 66 with osteophytes were detected in hand OA scans on ultrasound. Osteophytes on ultrasound were significantly associated with total radiographic severity score and number of affected joint (r=0.293, p=0.003 and r=0.336, p<0.001, respectively). In addition, there were weak associations of synovitis and joint effusion with radiographic changes. Patients with higher total radiographic severity score showed larger number of ultrasound-detected abnormalities, such as synovitis, joint effusion, and osteophytes (p=0.011, p=0.002, and p<0.001, respectively ...

Pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS) is an idiopathic proliferative synovial process composed of two predominant cell types: mononuclear histiocytic cells and giant cells. This lesion can be locally invasive and can result in bone cyst formation and late cartilage and bone loss. Because metalloproteinases have been implicated in the joint destruction occurring in inflammatory arthritis and in the ability of certain tumors to invade adjacent tissues, their presence in PVNS was determined. Synovial tissue samples were collected at surgical synovectomy from the knees of 10 patients with a prior histological diagnosis of PVNS. Pigmented villonodular synovitis synovium was examined for the presence of the metalloproteinases collagenase and stromelysin. Messenger RNA (mRNA) for collagenase and stromelysin was present in all patient samples, although in varying amounts. In situ hybridization studies on synovial tissue sections identified synovial lining cells as the predominant cells expressing these
OBJECTIVE: To investigate sensitive ultrasonographic imaging methods for detection of synovial thickness and vascularity to discriminate between patients with early rheumatoid arthritis (RA) receiving infliximab + methotrexate (MTX) versus placebo + MTX over 18 weeks, and to compare the relationship between synovial thickening and vascularity at baseline and radiologic damage to joints of the hands and feet at 54 weeks. METHODS: Patients with early RA (duration |3 years) receiving stable dosages of MTX were randomly assigned to receive blinded infusions of 5 mg/kg infliximab (n = 12) or placebo (n = 12) at weeks 0, 2, 6, and then every 8 weeks until week 46. At baseline and week 18, clinical assessments were performed, and metacarpophalangeal joints were assessed by high-frequency ultrasonography and power Doppler ultrasonography measurements. Radiographs of the hands and feet taken at baseline and at 54 weeks were evaluated using the van der Heijde modification of the Sharp method (vdH-Sharp score).

The aim of the present study was to determine the frequency and distribution of the cells with +7 in vivo by analyzing sections of paraffin-embedded synovia from patients affected by OA, PVNS, other forms of synovitis [hemorragic synovitis (HS) and chronic synovitis (CS)], and from individuals without joint disease. Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), using a centromeric probe for chromosome 7, showed that the mean frequency of trisomic nuclei in 5-microm sections was highest in PVNS (9.0%), followed by CS (5.9%), OA (5.6%), and HS (4.6%), whereas trisomic nuclei were rare (0.7%) in normal tissue. When 8-microm sections were studied, the frequencies of trisomic cells in OA and control synovia increased to 6.7% and 1.5%, respectively. Trisomic nuclei were found in all cases, including those for which cytogenetic analysis of ...

Several species of atypical mycobacteria have been isolated from wild and captive amphibians. In captive anurans, cutaneous and visceral mycobacteriosis are common and can result in significant mortality, particularly when animals are immunocompromised. Mycobacterial arthritis and synovitis are reported rarely in amphibians. We describe 20 cases in painted reed frogs (Hyperolius marmoratus), which presented with cachexia, limb paresis or paralysis or spindly leg syndrome. Histopathology revealed multifocal histiocytic to granulomatous synovitis affecting appendicular, rib or spinal intervertebral joints. Periarticular granulomata, granulomatous cellulitis and skeletal muscle atrophy, necrosis and degeneration were also present. In one case, granulomatous spinal osteomyelitis was recorded. ZiehleNeelsen stains showed large numbers of acid-fast bacteria in macrophages and histiocytes. The mycobacterial isolates obtained from culture were identified as members of the Mycobacterium chelonae ...
Affected patients either refuse to walk or walk with a limp. The leg is held in flexion with slight abduction and external rotation. Passive movement is usually pain-free; however, there may be pain and a slightly decreased range of motion with extreme internal rotation or abduction. Low-grade fever and malaise may be present. The diagnosis of transient synovitis is one of exclusion as laboratory values may be normal or may reveal mild elevations in the white blood cell (WBC) count and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR). Clinical decision rules have been developed to help differentiate transient synovitis from septic arthritis based on the presence or absence of fever, the ability to bear weight, WBC counts, inflammatory markers (ESR and C-reactive protein [CRP]), side-to-side differences in the width of the joint space on radiographs, and prior visits to a health care provider (Chapter 108 and Chapter 61). In the absence of fever and without elevated WBC and ESR, septic joint is unlikely, and ...
Swollen finger joint due to synovitis, an early degenerative change which occurs in rheumatoid arthritis. This disease affects both the synovium lining the joint capsules of the hands and knees and the cartilage on the articular surfaces of bone. The synovium becomes thickened with an increased blood supply and is distorted into papillary folds as a result of swelling and infiltration by white blood cells. Later changes include destruction of cartilage & its replacement by fibrovascular granulation tissue known as pannus. Joint mobility is limited by pain & swelling & later by cartilage & bone destruction & fusion of the joint (ankylosis). - Stock Image M110/0289
Background/Purpose: Development of disease-modifying drugs for OA has been challenging, partly due to lack of predictive biomarkers. Our primary objective was to identify baseline (BL) biomarkers predicting greater treatment effects on WOMAC pain among knee OA subjects in the ABT-981 ILLUSTRATE-K trial (NCT02087904).. Methods: Subjects (N=347) with Kellgren-Lawrence (KL) grade 2-3 knee OA, synovitis on MRI or ultrasound, and knee pain score 4-8 (range, 0-10) were randomized to placebo (PBO) or ABT-981 25, 100, or 200 mg subcutaneously every 2 wk for 50 wk. The primary endpoints were change from BL (CFB) in WOMAC pain at wk 16 and CFB in MRI synovitis at wk 26. Demographics, patient-reported outcomes (WOMAC, ICOAP, global assessment [PGA]), x-ray joint space width, and Whole Organ MRI Score (WORMS) were determined at BL. The Patient Rule Induction Method, Sequential Batting, and the Adaptive Index Model were used to identify BL predictive biomarkers and OA subsets with greater ABT-981 treatment ...
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed on the wrist and hand on the side with the most swollen joints (or the right side if swollen joints were equivalent). The 2nd to 5th metacarpophalangeal joints and 3 wrist joints (distal radioulnar, radiocarpal, and intercarpal-carpometacarpal joints) were scored on a scale of 0 = no synovitis to 3 = severe synovitis. MRIs were scored by 2 independent experts blinded to patient data and chronology. The sum score is the average of the 2 reader scores for each of the 7 joints. The range of the sum score is thus 0 = no synovitis in any joint to 21 = severe synovitis in all joints ...
Patient: An MRI i had done revealed synovitis of the posterior knee compartment with several small intra-articular bodies seated atop of the posterior medial femoral condyle. What are my options for treatment -. Doctor: The results of your MRI: synovitis and intra articular bodies are compatible, possibly with Degenerative Menisci tear ears that often manifest with recurrent effusions due to synovitis. The menisci are C-shaped wedges of fibro cartilage located between the tibia and femur, and very close related to knee ligaments and attached also to the joint capsule. They are susceptible to get injured with leg rotation movements or rotational forces applied to them, the lesion produced can be partial or complete tear, and the pieces become intra articular bodies that may produce locking or buckling with joint extension, because they may get trapped within the joint, then extension may feel limited against a rubbery resistance. Joint inflammation, effusion (synovitis) or capsular involvement ...
Background: Diffusion-weighted MRI has been proposed as a new technique for imaging synovitis without intravenous contrast application. We investigated diagnostic utility of multi-shot readout-segmented diffusion-weighted MRI (multi-shot DWI) for synovial imaging of the knee joint in patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Methods: Thirty-two consecutive patients with confirmed or suspected JIA (21 girls, median age 13 years) underwent routine 1.5 T MRI with contrast-enhanced T1w imaging (contrast-enhanced MRI) and with multi-shot DWI (RESOLVE, b-values 0-50 and 800 s/mm\(^2\)). Contrast-enhanced MRI, representing the diagnostic standard, and diffusion-weighted images at b = 800 s/mm\(^2\) were separately rated by three independent blinded readers at different levels of expertise for the presence and the degree of synovitis on a modified 5-item Likert scale along with the level of subjective diagnostic confidence. Results: Fourteen (44%) patients had active synovitis and joint ...

Rheumatoid arthritis is a disorder that affects a lot of organs and tissues. But it majorly causes problem for the joints and results in inflammatory synovitis. Further, it may also destruct the articular cartilage. The rheumatoid arthritis could also cause inflammations to various parts such as sclera, pleura, lungs and pericardium. Till today, the reason behind this problem has not been discovered. According to a study almost 1% of the population gets affected by this problem and the increase in the women being affected is almost 3 times more than men. You will find people suffering with this problem at the age of 40 to 50.. It is a very painful problem, you lose your mobility because of his problem. This problem can be diagnosed only if a few blood test and x ray is taken to confirm that you are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis..

On October 31st 2016, Halloween, our sweet Little Pony and her brothers took to the street to trick or treat. Most children, except for those littles who cant keep up (like our youngest son) run door to door in their costumes as they bob down the street. But, for some reason, our daughter wasnt. She was slow. She was walking with a limp. I wasnt sure if she fell and hurt herself earlier that day, we stopped by a few houses before returning back home. What could possibly keep this Pony from trotting down the street along with everyone else? We werent sure, but the following day it continued. And the day after that. And, you guessed it, the day after that.. A trip to the doctor led to the conclusion of what was believed to be transient synovitis. Basically, a virus was leaving her body and was trapped in a joint; causing stiffness and limping. That sounded reasonable, it would last for a few weeks. In December, the limp returned. Again, in January, from time to time as well. We had blood ...

The grinding and abrading of metal joint components releases tiny metal molecules that begin a foreign body reaction and cause dangerously elevated metal levels in the body. Metallosis occurs with titanium-based joint implants as well as those made with chromium and cobalt although the toxicity of these metals varies. When the body detects metal particles, the immune system goes into overdrive causing inflammation, swelling and other painful conditions. In the joints, metallosis causes synovitis, which is the inflammation of the synovial tissue and membranes that line the joints. Synovitis is a painful condition associated with gout that causes unbearable pain and makes joint movement difficult due to swelling and increased pressure.. ...

The subcommittee also works on national, state, and local insurance issues. For example, last year an ACR member in New York informed the subcommittee that various payors were denying payment for ultrasound guidance procedures for rheumatologists-code 76881 or 76882. After a letter was sent to the payors, HIP Health Plan of New York responded that they approved the procedure using CPT code 76942-ultrasound guidance for needle placement. Dr. Molina states that this is of great concern for the rheumatology community because the use of diagnostic ultrasound is a reliable method of early detection of joint disease. For example, with ultrasound, synovitis was detected in 7 of 8 patients (88%) in whom clinical assessment failed to detect synovitis that was seen arthroscopically.1. However, HIP will not approve the use of CPT code 76881 or 76882 for rheumatologists, and therefore the subcommittee is sending a second letter with additional literature on the benefits of using ultrasound imaging for ...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic systemic inflammatory disease of unknown cause. The hallmark feature of this condition is persistent symmetric polyarthritis (synovitis) that affects the hands and feet, though any joint lined by a synovial membrane may be involved.
Used in the treatment of auto-immune disorders such as Crohns disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Infliximab binds to tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFa) and inhibits binding of TNFa with its receptors. This reduces production of pro-inflammatory cytokines such as interleukins (IL) 1 and 6. This also limits leukocyte migration and expression of adhesion molecules by endothelial cells and leukocytes. Infliximab also limits the activation of neutrophil and eosinophil functional activity, reduces production of tissue degrading enzymes produced by synoviocytes and/or chondrocytes. Infliximab decreases synovitis and joint erosions in collagen-induced arthritis and allows eroded joints to heal ...
Nevertheless, because of the complexity of the disease, its initiation could take place by means of any of these tissues, despite the fact that irritation on the synovial membrane is significantly less likely to be a major trigger. In OA, it might appear that each Inhibitors,Modulators,Libraries cartilage and subchondral bone are altered extracellularly. The age connected improvements in chondrocytes lead to a metabolic and phenotypic decline, triggering chondrocytes to get significantly less responsive to development factor stimulation and much more vulnerable to catabolic stimulation. This phenomenon may very well be the consequence of biomechanical forces as well as biological sources, such as cycles of hypoxia, the pres ence of reactive oxygen species, accumulation of advanced glycation finish solutions along with the results of inflammatory cytokines. Indeed, clinically detectable joint inflamma tion might predict a worse radiological outcome in OA.. Mechanisms by which synovitis ...
