We undertook this study to evaluate the effects of leflunomide, an oral pyrimidine synthesis inhibitor, on the serum chemokine levels in patients with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who were refractory to treatment with methotrexate (MTX) or did not tolerated MTX treatment. RA patients were supposed to receive leflunomide (100 mg/day loading dose for 3(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of the Multiwave Locked System (MLS) laser therapy on clinical features, microvascular changes in nailfold videocapillaroscopy (NVC) and circulating modulators releasing as a consequence of vascular endothelium injury such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and angiopoietin 2 (Ang-2) in(More)
