Results from a large clinical trial indicate that patients with rheumatoid arthritis are likely to experience the same level of cardiovascular benefits from statins as other individuals, without additional risks. The findings appear in Arthritis & Rheumatology, an official journal of the American College of Rheumatology. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis have an approximately 50 percent […]Continue Reading ...
A systematic review and analysis of published studies found consistent links between inflammatory arthritis and impacts on intimacy and sexual function for both men and women. The Arthritis Care & Research analysis included 55 studies. People living with inflammatory arthritis demonstrated a higher prevalence of sexual dysfunction compared with other individuals. For both genders, disease-related […]Continue Reading ...
Osteoarthritis (OA) has traditionally been viewed as a highly prevalent but milder condition when compared with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and some may believe that it is part of a normal aging process requiring acceptance, not treatment. A new study in Arthritis & Rheumatology indicates that OA and RA have similar impacts or burdens on patients […]Continue Reading ...
A team of scientists from VIB and KU Leuven has developed a machine learning algorithm that identifies children with juvenile arthritis with almost 90% accuracy from a simple blood test. The new findings, published this week in Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases, pave the way for the use of machine learning to improve diagnosis and […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: Alexandra Angelich, University Communications Researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have identified an unexpected contributor to rheumatoid arthritis that may help explain the painful flare-ups associated with the disease. The discovery points to a potential new treatment for the autoimmune disorder and may also allow the use of a simple blood […]Continue Reading ...
Scanning electron micrograph of human T lymphocyte or T cell. Credit: NIAID/NIH In rheumatoid arthritis, immune cells called helper T cells behave differently from their counterparts in healthy cells and in other autoimmune diseases. Stanford scientists have learned why. Stanford University School of Medicine investigators succeeded in countering inflammation and tissue damage caused by rheumatoid […]Continue Reading ...
Stanford University School of Medicine investigators succeeded in countering inflammation and tissue damage caused by rheumatoid arthritis in mice engrafted with human joint-lining tissue and a human immune system. The researchers accomplished this by shutting down a faulty molecular mechanism that they identified in humans with the disease. In addition, they found that a novel […]Continue Reading ...
(HealthDay)—Cardiovascular risk should be carefully evaluated in patients with psoriatic arthritis, according to a study published online Nov. 5 in the International Journal of Rheumatic Diseases. Rubén Queiro, M.D., Ph.D., from Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias in Oviedo, Spain, and colleagues assessed the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors among 340 consecutive patients with psoriatic arthritis […]Continue Reading ...
Several previous studies have demonstrated that moderate alcohol consumption is linked with less severe disease and better quality of life in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, but a new Arthritis Care & Research study suggests that this might not be because drinking alcohol is beneficial. In the 16,762-patient study, patients with a higher severity of disease […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers at the University of Minnesota, in collaboration with researchers at Medtronic, have shown that noninvasive daily ultrasound stimulation of the spleen in mice with inflammatory arthritis resulted in significantly less joint swelling compared to arthritic mice that were not treated. The research is a first step to developing new treatment options for more than […]Continue Reading ...

upadacitinib Treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis AbbVie Announces New Drug Application Accepted for Priority Review by FDA for Upadacitinib for Treatment of Moderate to Severe Rheumatoid Arthritis NORTH CHICAGO, Ill., Feb. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV), a research-based global biopharmaceutical company, has announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted for […]Continue Reading ...
WEDNESDAY, Feb. 6, 2019 — A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided treat-to-target strategy is not associated with improved disease activity remission rates for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in clinical remission, according to a study published in the Feb. 5 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Signe Møller Bisgaard, M.D., Ph.D., from Slagelse […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain QUT scientists have found that a drug derived from omega-3 fatty acids can reduce osteoarthritis inflammation that’s been caused by a high-fat diet. The study, published in Scientific Reports, is among the first to investigate resolvin D1 (RvD1), which has reported anti-inflammatory properties, as a possible treatment for diet-associated osteoarthritis, which […]Continue Reading ...
Identical twin toddlers who presented with severe arthritis helped scientists to identify the first gene mutation that can single-handedly cause a juvenile form of this inflammatory joint disease. By investigating the DNA of individual blood cells of both children and then modelling the genetic defect in a mouse model, the research team led by Adrian […]Continue Reading ...
