Biological therapies represent a fundamental innovation for the management of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). However, many biological originators have reached, or are about to reach, patent expiry and long-term therapy costs have become progressively unsustainable. CT-P13, a biosimilar of the anti-tumor necrosis factor (anti-TNF) monoclonal antibody(More)
Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune condition characterized by the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) in subjects presenting with thrombosis and/or pregnancy loss. The currently used classification criteria were updated in the international consensus held in Sidney in 2005. Vascular events seem to result of local procoagulative(More)
It is the goal of this paper to study the boundedness, the persistence and the asymptotic behavior of the positive solutions of the system of two difference equations of exponential form xn+1 = a + bxn−1en , yn+1 = c + dyn−1en , where a, b, c, d are positive constants, and the initial values x−1, x0, y−1, y0 are positive real values. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.(More)
Both BLISS-52 and BLISS-76 international phase III trials in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) met their primary outcomes; however, they were not designed to assess the efficacy of belimumab for the treatment of lupus nephritis (LN). LN is a frequent cause of SLE-associated morbidity and mortality, and emerging evidence suggests a potential therapeutic(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The efficacy of glucocorticoids (GCs) in treating systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is beyond doubt. However, GCs-related adverse effects (AEs) are multiple and serious. Despite the current available evidence suggesting to reduce daily doses of prednisone <7.5 mg/day, or even to withdraw it, in the real-life practice, it is not(More)
In this study, we aimed to systematically review available literature on the efficacy of eculizumab for the treatment of renal involvement in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). We conducted a literature search developed a priori, to identify articles reporting clinical experience with the use of eculizumab in SLE patients, focusing on renal(More)
BACKGROUND A beneficial effect of rituximab (RTX) on focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) in pediatric patients or in transplant recipients has been reported in isolated cases. However, the use of RTX in adult patients with idiopathic FSGS needs further investigation. METHODS Eight patients who had biopsy-proven FSGS (63.9 ± 14.0, range 40-81 years,(More)
The current mainstay of treatment in patients with thrombotic antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is long-term anticoagulation, mainly with Vitamin K antagonist agents. Some recently available studies have created new ground for discussion about the possible discontinuation of anticoagulation therapy in patients with a history of thrombotic APS in whom(More)
