OBJECTIVE To examine the relation between rate of synovial membrane enhancement, intra-articular pressure (IAP), and histologically determined synovial vascularity in rheumatoid arthritis, using gadolinium-DTPA enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS Dynamic gadolinium-DTPA enhanced MRI was performed in 31 patients with knee synovitis (10(More)
The first wave of the 2009 influenza H1N1 pandemic (H1N1pdm) in Milwaukee, WI has been recognized as the largest reported regional outbreak in the United States. The epidemiologic and clinical characteristics of this large first wave outbreak from April 28(th) 2009-July 25(th) 2009, studied using both passive and targeted surveillance methodologies are(More)
The macroscopic characteristics of a material are determined by its elementary excitations, which dictate the response of the system to external stimuli. The spectrum of excitations is related to fluctuations in the density–density correlations and is typically measured through frequency-domain neutron 1 or X-ray 2–4 scattering. Time-domain measurements of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether antidrug antibodies and/or drug non-trough levels predict the long-term treatment response in a large cohort of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) treated with adalimumab or etanercept and to identify factors influencing antidrug antibody and drug levels to optimize future treatment decisions. METHODS A total of 331(More)
