To provide evidence‐based recommendations for the treatment of patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and nonradiographic axial spondyloarthritis (SpA).
Ophthalmologic manifestations of rheumatic diseases.
TLDR
Analysis of 300 recent and consecutive rheumatology consultations from a large Veterans Administration Healthcare System shows that 4% are referred for eye manifestations of suspected rheumatic diseases, most commonly, anterior uveitis and keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS). Expand
Growth effects of Phaenicia sericata larval extracts on fibroblasts: mechanism for wound healing by maggot therapy.
  • P. Prete
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Life sciences
  • 17 January 1997
TLDR
The studies suggest the existence of intrinsic factors within the maggot which may be responsible for the growth-stimulating effects seen in maggot-infested wounds. Expand
The nature of arthritis pain.
TLDR
Overall pain intensity increased with disease duration in both rheumatoid and degenerative arthritis, but the relationship of affective and sensory components of the pain experience did not alter with duration of disease. Expand
Effects of L-canavanine on immune function in normal and autoimmune mice: disordered B-cell function by a dietary amino acid in the immunoregulation of autoimmune disease.
  • P. Prete
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Canadian journal of physiology and pharmacology
  • 1 July 1985
TLDR
Data suggest a dietary amino acid, L-canavanine, affects B-cell function resulting in autoimmune phenomena and providing a new animal model of autoimmunity, a diet-induced systemic lupus erythematosus. Expand
Apolipoproteins A-I and B and cholesterol in synovial fluid of patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
Regression analyses of plasma and SF apo A-I and apo B suggested an increased permeability for these lipoprotein constituents across RA synovial membrane that was not observed in DJD synovium but not DJDSynovium is more permeable to major apoproteins of low- and high-density lipoprotein (LDL and HDL). Expand
Synovial fluid lipoproteins: review of current concepts and new directions.
TLDR
Research suggests an immunologic role for plasma lipoproteins on lymphocyte and monocytes in the blood and lymph and should be studied to define their actions within the synovial space. Expand
Palmar fasciitis and arthritis with ovarian and non-ovarian carcinomas. New syndrome.
TLDR
The two cases presented illustrate the fasciitis-arthritis association with other non-ovarian malignancies and suggest an immunologic cause for this disorder. Expand
Safety and efficacy of abatacept in eight rheumatoid arthritis patients with chronic hepatitis B
TLDR
This medical record review assessed the safety and efficacy of abatacept in 8 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and chronic hepatitis B. Expand
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus in Men: A Retrospective Analysis in a Veterans Administration Healthcare System Population
TLDR
It is suggested that SLE men in this population are older at onset of disease, have different comorbidities, and have a higher mortality at 1 year than women with SLE, and the need for future SLE studies to include data from multiple geographic areas is suggested. Expand
