Rapid developments in genetic analysis have enabled the dissection of a variety of arthropathies that are inherited in a Mendelian manner. These disorders include calcium crystal arthropathies such as calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate deposition (CPPD) disease and hydroxyapatite deposition disease. In CPPD disease, mutations in a recently discovered gene, ANKH, have been demonstrated in five affected families and may also be associated with the idiopathic deposition of calcium pyrophosphate… Expand
A Brief Review on Calcium Pyrophosphate Deposition Disease ( Pseudogout )
Calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease (CPDD) or pseudo gout is a metabolic arthropathy caused by the deposition of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate in and around joints especially in articularExpand
Updated Treatment for Calcium Pyrophosphate Deposition Disease: An Insight
TLDR
How CPPD can manifest as different kinds of arthritis, which may be symptomatic or asymptomatic, is discussed, to provide an updated insight to clinicians for evidence-based treatment of CPPD. Expand
Hypomagnesemia associated with chondrocalcinosis: a cross-sectional study.
TLDR
Long-lasting Mg depletion is strongly associated with chondrocalcinosis, and this association is significantly higher in patients with a low serum Mg level than in controls. Expand
Pathological calcification in osteoarthritis: an outcome or a disease initiator?
TLDR
Observations suggest that pathological calcification is most likely to be a disease initiator instead of an outcome of osteoarthritis progression, andhibiting pathological crystallite deposition within joint tissues therefore represents a potential therapeutic target in the management of osteOarthritis. Expand
Calcium Pyrophosphate Dihydrate, Hydroxyapatite, and Miscellaneous Crystals
Calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate (CPPD) and hydro-xyapatite crystals are the most common calcium-containing crystals associated with joint and periarticular disorders. Deposition of these crystals isExpand
Chondrocytes From Osteoarthritic and Chondrocalcinosis Cartilage Represent Different Phenotypes
TLDR
The aim of this study was to investigate the chondrocyte phenotype in CC cartilage and the effect of CPPD crystals on chondROcytes, and to observe an increased expression of p16 and p21 in cartilage samples of CC patients compared with OA patients and healthy controls, indicating cellular senescence. Expand
Prevalence of chondrocalcinosis in Italian subjects from northeastern Italy. The Pro.V.A. (PROgetto Veneto Anziani) study.
TLDR
The prevalence of CC found in the survey based on standardised x-ray reading was high, suggesting that CC could be an underdiagnosed disease in the absence of radiographic investigation, and confirms the frequent presence of CC at different sites. Expand
Calcium Pyrophosphate Dihydrate Crystal Deposition of Multiple Lumbar Facet Joints: A Case Report
TLDR
A 69-year-old woman with 2-level symptomatic synovial cysts of the facet joints caused by calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystal deposition underwent surgical decompression for sciatica and low back pain and had recovered completely at one-year follow-up. Expand
Anti-Arthritic Activity
TLDR
Ind analgesic and anti-inflammatory therapy has been the major treatment for OA in the past, and NSAIDs still constitute the majority of the drugs used against OA according to guidelines, and despite a lack of clinical success, some alternative approaches to targeting MMPs are being considered for this indication. Expand
Determinants of pathological mineralization
  • T. Kirsch
  • Medicine
  • Current opinion in rheumatology
  • 2006
TLDR
How the understanding of mechanisms and factors regulating physiological mineralization can be used to develop new therapeutic strategies to prevent pathological or ectopic mineralization events is described. Expand

Refinement of the chromosome 5p locus for familial calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate deposition disease.
TLDR
Recombinants in the Argentinean kindred have enabled us to designate a region<1 cM in length between the markers D5S416 and D4S2114 as the CPPDD locus, and to observe linkage to the short arm of chromosome 5. Expand
Hereditary chondrocalcinosis in a Mexican-American family.
TLDR
A unique finding of this study was a "halo" surrounding chondrocytes in 1 patient's cartilage, demonstrating loss of the proteoglycans. Expand
Localisation of a gene for chondrocalcinosis to chromosome 5p.
TLDR
Mapping a locus for chondrocalcinosis will allow the heterogeneity of the disorder to be assessed and may also be relevant to understanding the aetiology of osteoarthritis with which it commonly associates. Expand
Linkage of early-onset osteoarthritis and chondrocalcinosis to human chromosome 8q.
TLDR
A large New England family with early-onset CPDD and severe degenerative OA is described, and genetic linkage between the disease and chromosome 8q is found, suggesting that a defective gene at this location causes the disease in this family. Expand
Mutations in ANKH cause chondrocalcinosis.
TLDR
Increased ANK activity may explain the different types of crystals commonly deposited in human CCAL2 families and mutant mice and may provide a useful pharmacological target for treating some forms of human CC. Expand
Evidence of a generalized metabolic defect in patients with hereditary chondrocalcinosis. Increased inorganic pyrophosphate in cultured fibroblasts and lymphoblasts.
A gene in the heterozygous state appears responsible for a 2-fold increase in pyrophosphate content of both fibroblasts and lymphoblasts cultured from patients who have dominantly inheritedExpand
Familial chondrocalcinosis in the Chiloe Islands, Chile.
TLDR
The presence of common Caucasian anthropological features of genetic value in the patients and the lack of Indian mixture in three of the involved families, documented back to 1600, suggest a Caucasian origin of the mutation. Expand
Hereditary chondrocalcinosis in a Tunisian family.
TLDR
A clinical and radiological survey of 77 members of a Tunisian family with hereditary chondrocalcinosis was performed and HLA typing revealed that all affected subjects bore the haplotype A1 B12 DR3. Expand
Autosomal dominant familial calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate deposition disease is caused by mutation in the transmembrane protein ANKH.
TLDR
It is postulate that loss of function of ANKH causes elevated extracellular PPi levels, predisposing to CPPD crystal deposition. Expand
CHONDROCALCINOSIS (PSEUDOGOUT SYNDROME). A FAMILY STUDY.
TLDR
The concept that this syndrome may be hereditary is supported, with characteristic abnormal joint calcifications and a clinical picture suggestive of pseudogout in two siblings, while less specific calcifications were noted in a third sibling and two daughters. Expand
