Development and validation of a composite disease activity score for juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
The JADAS was found to be a valid instrument for assessment of disease activity in JIA and is potentially applicable in standard clinical care, observational studies, and clinical trials.
EULAR/PRINTO/PRES criteria for Henoch–Schönlein purpura, childhood polyarteritis nodosa, childhood Wegener granulomatosis and childhood Takayasu arteritis: Ankara 2008. Part II: Final classification…
The previously proposed classification criteria for Henoch–Schönlein purpura (HSP), childhood polyarteritis nodosa (c-PAN), c-Wegener granulomatosis (C-WG) and c-Takayasu arteritis ( c-TA) are validated.

This study suggests that a compartmentalized B cell response occurs within the CNS during an ongoing inflammatory reaction, through a recapitulation of all stages of B cell differentiation observed in secondary lymphoid organs.
2016 Classification Criteria for Macrophage Activation Syndrome Complicating Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis: A European League Against Rheumatism/American College of Rheumatology/Paediatric…
To develop criteria for the classification of macrophage activation syndrome (MAS) in patients with systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA).
Development and validation of a clinical index for assessment of long-term damage in juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
The JADI exhibited good reliability, construct validity, and discriminative ability and is therefore a valid instrument for the assessment of long-term damage in patients with JIA, in the context of both clinical management and research settings.
Toward New Classification Criteria for Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis: First Steps, Pediatric Rheumatology International Trials Organization International Consensus
An international consensus was reached to identify different proposed homogeneous chronic disorders that fall under the historical term JIA, and these preliminary criteria will be formally validated with a dedicated project.
TNF-alpha and IFN-gamma are overexpressed in the bone marrow of Fanconi anemia patients and TNF-alpha suppresses erythropoiesis in vitro.
This study evaluated in marrow mononuclear cells of patients with FA the expression of negative modulators of the hematopoiesis, such as TNF-alpha, IFN-gamma, macrophage inflammatory protein 1alpha (MIP-1alpha), and surface Fas ligand, and the role of T NF-alpha on FA erythropoiedis in vitro.
Long‐term outcome and prognostic factors of juvenile dermatomyositis: A multinational, multicenter study of 490 patients
To investigate the long‐term outcome and prognostic factors of juvenile dermatomyositis (DM) through a multinational, multicenter study.
Polymorphisms in the osteopontin promoter affect its transcriptional activity.
It is described that the -66 polymorphism modifies the binding affinity for the SP1/SP3 transcription factors, the -156 polymorphism is included in a yet uncharacterized RUNX2 binding site, and the -443 polymorphism causes differential binding of an unknown factor.
