UNLABELLED Infrared imaging analysis of iliac crest biopsy specimens from patients with osteoporotic and multiple spontaneous fractures shows significant differences in the spatial variation of the nonreducible:reducible collagen cross-links at bone-forming trabecular surfaces compared with normal bone. INTRODUCTION Although the role of BMC and bone(More)
We report the case of a man with osteolytic lesions of the right mandible due to chronic osteomyelitis, with delayed healing after six months of antibiotic therapy. The patient received off-label therapy with strontium ranelate, with significant radiological improvement of his condition after 3 months.
OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy and safety of the interleukin-1β (IL-1β) inhibitor canakinumab in all adolescent and adult patients with familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) identified from the Greek National Registry for off-label drug use between 2010 and 2015. METHODS In this retrospective longitudinal outcome study, clinical and laboratory data were(More)
OBJECTIVE Inhibition of interleukin-1 activity improves nitro-oxidative stress, endothelial and coronary function. The authors investigated (a) the association of nitro-oxidative stress and endothelial function with myocardial deformation, (b) the effects of anakinra, an interleukin-1a receptor antagonist on myocardial deformation in patients with(More)
Myocardial function is impaired in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Inhibition of interleukin (IL)-1 activity reduces experimental myocardial infarction by limiting apoptosis. We investigated whether a) soluble apoptotic markers are related with impaired left ventricular (LV) performance and b) treatment with anakinra, an IL-1 receptor antagonist, reduces(More)
