OBJECTIVES To analyze glucocorticoid (GC) sensitivity using intravenous very low dose dexamethasone suppression test (IV-VLD-DST) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and its correlation with glucocorticoid receptor alpha-isoform (GRalpha) gene expression. METHODS We evaluated 20 healthy controls and 32 RA patients with Health Assessment(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyse the role of multibiomarker disease activity (MBDA) score in predicting disease relapses in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in sustained remission who tapered disease modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD) therapy in RETRO, a prospective randomised controlled trial. METHODS MBDA scores (scale 1-100) were determined based on 12(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The wide variability of responses to corticotherapy suggests a role for individual recognition of steroid sensitivity in order to customize treatment. Oral dexamethasone (DEX) administration may be hindered by the rate of its intestinal absorption and the liver first-passage effect. In this study we suggest that an intravenous very low dose(More)
OBJECTIVE To perform a detailed analysis of the autoantibody response against post-translationally modified proteins in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in sustained remission and to explore whether its composition influences the risk for disease relapse when tapering disease modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD) therapy. METHODS Immune responses(More)
The authors carried out an open noncomparative study to evaluate the anti-inflammatory therapeutic activity of piroxicam in 40 adult patients suffering from acute gout. The patients ranged in age from 28 to 68 years (the average age was 51.6 years) overall, 21 men and 19 women participated in the trial. All of the patients had their disease for more than(More)
