We performed a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in a Chinese Han population by genotyping 1,047 cases and 1,205 controls using Illumina Human610-Quad BeadChips and replicating 78 SNPs in two additional cohorts (3,152 cases and 7,050 controls). We identified nine new susceptibility loci (ETS1, IKZF1, RASGRP3,(More)
This retrospective study is designed to evaluate the diagnostic value of semi-quantitative parameters of salivary gland scintigraphy (SGS) in Sjögren's syndrome (SS) and explore the relationship between SGS parameters and salivary gland histopathologic manifestations. SGS and labial salivary gland biopsy were performed on 95 SS patients and 36 healthy(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the roles of CD147 in the pathogenesis and development of ankylosing spondylitis (AS). METHODS Flow cytometry was used to detect the expression levels of CD147 in peripheral monocytes and T lymphocytes of 30 AS patients, 30 rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients and 30 healthy controls (HC). reverse transcription-polymerase chain(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the short-term efficacy and safety of etanercept treatment in Chinese patients with active ankylosing spondylitis (AS). METHODS This was a 12-week multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized phase III clinical study. The first part was a 6-week placebo-controlled period followed by a 6-week open-label period. The(More)
High length and nucleotide polymorphisms in intron2 of GH I gene were detected in 162 individuals,which were from seven wild crucian carp colonies, two goldfish colonies and one Fangzheng crucian carp colony. Using denaturating polyareylamide gel electrophoresis (DPAGE) and single-strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP), seven length variants and 15(More)
