OBJECTIVE To estimate the annual direct and indirect costs of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in China and identify the predictors for cost of illness. METHODS A cross-sectional study of cost of illness from the societal perspective was conducted on 829 patients with RA in 21 tertiary care hospitals in China between July 2009 and December 2010. Data on(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the impact of RA on work capacity and identify factors related to work capacity impairment in patients with RA. METHODS A cross-sectional multicentre study was performed in 21 tertiary care hospitals across China. A consecutive sample of 846 patients with RA was recruited, of which 589 patients of working age at disease onset(More)
BACKGROUND Although glucocorticoids are effective in IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD), patients may relapse during or after glucocorticoid tapering. Immunosuppressive agents, including leflunomide (LEF), are regarded as steroid-sparing agents in other autoimmune disorders and need to be discussed in the management of IgG4-RD. AIM To identify the efficacy(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of telmisartan on expression of resistin in serum and liver under conditions of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and insulin resistance using a rat model system. METHODS Forty-five male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into a normal control group (NC, n=10), a model control group (MC, n=15), a polyene(More)
OBJECTIVE To discuss the utility of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computerized tomography (PET/CT) in the diagnosis of idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis (iRPF). METHODS IRPF patients diagnosed between September 2011 and June 2016 were included. Retroperitoneal malignancy patients were included as control. The morphological(More)
A 3d-4f luminescent metal-organic framework (MOF), [Tb2(Cu8I8)(C12H8NO2)6(H2O)4]·5C4H8O2 (4), and three analogues {[La2(Cu8I8)(C12H8NO2)6(C4H8O2)2(H2O)2]·3C4H8O2·2H2O (1), [Ce2(Cu8I8)(C12H8NO2)6(H2O)4]·5C4H8O2 (2), and [Eu2(Cu8I8)(C12H8NO2)6(H2O)4]·5C4H8O2 (3)}, were self-assembled from copper(I) halide clusters and lanthanide metal ions with an organic(More)
Two novel lanthanide metal organic frameworks [Eu4(bpt)4(DMF)2(H2O)6]·(DMF)5·(H2O)4 () and [Tb4(bpt)4(DMF)2(H2O)8]·(DMF)5·(H2O)3 () were synthesized under hydrothermal conditions, forming a three-dimensional structure (H3bpt = biphenyl-3,4',5-tricarboxylate). Single crystal X-ray diffraction reveals that compounds and are heteromorphic and have different(More)
