OBJECTIVE To update the evidence pertaining to the diagnosis, prognosis and classification of patients with early arthritis (EA), and to inform the 2016 European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) recommendations for the management of patients with EA. METHODS MEDLINE, EMBASE and Cochrane databases were searched up to October 2015. The first part of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Tumor necrosis factor inhibitor (TNFi) therapy is effective for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Some researchers have suggested that TNFi therapy affects B-cell homeostasis. We studied the effect of TNFi therapy on the distribution of peripheral B-cell subsets to elucidate B-cell-related biomarkers to predict the TNFi response. METHODS Peripheral(More)
OBJECTIVE Regulatory interleukin-10 (IL-10)-producing B cells (B10 cells) have been shown to prevent and cure collagen-induced arthritis in mice. In humans, very little is known about B10 cells in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Several B cell subsets, such as CD24(high) CD38(high) , CD24(high) CD27+, and CD5+ B cells, were suggested to be precursors of B10(More)
OBJECTIVE To define parameters predictive of lymphoma development in patients with primary Sjögren's syndrome (SS). METHODS A multicenter case-control survey was performed to identify predictors of lymphoma. Cases were patients who developed lymphoma after diagnosis of primary SS and were mainly recruited through the Club Rhumatismes et Inflammation(More)
INTRODUCTION We previously reported that low ratio of osteoprotegerin (OPG) to tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) was associated with Disease Activity Score in 28 joints (DAS28) remission at 6 months in patients with early rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Here, we aimed to evaluate the value of baseline OPG/TRAIL ratio in predicting(More)
OBJECTIVE The immunogenicity of tocilizumab (TCZ) has been poorly studied. We assessed the immunogenicity of TCZ and serum TCZ trough levels in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients and the preexisting TCZ-specific CD4+ T cell repertoire in healthy controls. METHODS Anti-drug antibodies (ADAs) to TCZ and serum TCZ trough levels in RA patients were assessed(More)
INTRODUCTION In chronic inflammatory rheumatic diseases (CIRDs), comorbidities such as cardiovascular disease and infections are sub-optimally managed. EULAR recently developed points to consider to collect and report comorbidities. The objective of this present study was to develop a pragmatic guide to collect, report and propose management recommendations(More)
B cells can have a regulatory role, mainly mediated by interleukin 10 (IL-10). IL-10 producing B cells (B10 cells) cells remain to be better characterized. Annexin V binds phosphatidylserine (PS), which is externalized during apoptosis. Previous works suggested that B10 cells are apoptotic cells since they bind Annexin V. Others showed that Annexin V(More)
