A drug that we believe has promise to exert a desired effect in early SSc is cyclophosphamide (CYC). However,(More)
BACKGROUND Sensitive and specific criteria for the classification of systemic sclerosis are required by clinicians and investigators to achieve higher quality clinical studies and approaches to therapy. A clinical study of systemic sclerosis patients in Europe and Canada led to a set of criteria that achieve high sensitivity and specificity. (More)

In the setting of connective tissue diseases (CTDs), some measures of ILD disease activity and severity may be confounded by non-pulmonary comorbidities. METHODS The(More)
Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a rare connective tissue disorder whose aetiology remains obscure, although environmental and genetic influences are likely to play a role. Disease registries have contributed to enhancing our understanding of this debilitating illness, but without sensitive, specific, and extensively validated classification criteria, accurate(More)
BACKGROUND Tofacitinib is a Janus kinase inhibitor being investigated for the treatment of moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis. We report efficacy of tofacitinib in patient subgroups based on pooled data from two Phase 3 trials (<span>NCT</span>01276639, <span>NCT</span>01309737).<br /> OBJECTIVES To assess consistency of treatment effects of tofacitinib(More)
The aim of this study was to translate and adapt the original English-language versions of the Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index (BASDAI) and the Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index (BASFI) into Ukrainian and validate the instruments by administering them to Ukrainian patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS).
