Renal biopsy specimens from 20 patients, 14 women and 6 men, with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) of at least 6 months' duration were studied by direct immunofluorescence microscopy for the presence of immune deposits. Pathological changes were most prominent in patients with longstanding or malignant disease and in patients previously on gold salt therapy.(More)
The clinical course of rheumatoid arthritis in the patient described was characterized by two episodes of microhaematuria, both occurring shortly after the administration of gold salt. The second of these episodes developed into progressive renal failure. Renal biopsy disclosed a rarely described granulomatous glomerulonephritis. Various known pathogenic(More)
Routine joint radiographs of 125 patients with systemic lupus erythematosus were studied. A total of 121 patients had a clinical history of articular symptoms. Cystic bone lesions were found in 51 patients (41%). The lesions, which were typically located subchondrally in the small joints of hands and feet, appeared as well-defined radiolucent areas(More)

Four patients with erosive rheumatoid arthritis and one with psoriasis arthropathy were treated with 600-900 mg/day proquazone for 4-7 weeks. All patients had acute knee effusions. The complement components C3 and C4, as well as IgG, IgA, IgM and total protein, were measured in both the synovial fluid and serum before and after treatment. In the 4 patients(More)
In two different double-blind studies (Study 1: 27 patients with active rheumatoid arthritis in an early phase, and Study 2: 20 selected patients with rheumatoid arthritis and acute knee effusion) the efficacy of Biarison, a new non-steroidal antiinflammatory agent was compared with that of indomethacin. The daily dose of Biarison was 600-900 mg and that of(More)
Six tests for circulating immune complexes (CIC) developed in four laboratories and representing four main principles [affinity of human platelets, Clq, of RF for aggregated IgG, and of conglutinin (Kg) for complex-bound C3] were evaluated on series of SLE and definite RA. All tests detected human model complexes in the presence of NHS and discriminated the(More)
