  • Depression-, Pain-, and Health-Related Quality of Life in Patients with
           Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    • Abstract: Objectives. A significant number of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) have depression, and many are untreated. We aim to assess the frequency of moderate to severe depression (MSD) in a multiethnic group of SLE patients with different sociodemographic backgrounds, identify modifiable factors associated with depression, and determine the impact of depression, disease activity, damage, cognitive function, and pain severity on health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Methods. Ninety-nine patients with SLE were evaluated in a cross-sectional study. Sociodemographic data, Beck Depression Inventory (BDI II), SLE disease activity index (SLEDAI-2K), SLICC Damage Index (SLICC-DI), pain severity (10 cm visual analogue scale), cognitive function (Automated Neuropsychologic Assessment Metrics (ANAM)), and the physical (PCS) and mental (MCS) component scores of the Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) were recorded. Bivariate analysis identified potential associations of relevant variables with BDI II and SF-36. Regression analysis determined independent correlates with MSD, PCS, and MCS. Results. Over 50% of subjects (50.5%) were African-American, 37.1% had a family income of ≤$20,000, and 31.3% had MSD. In the bivariate analysis, family income, SLEDAI-2K, cognitive function, and pain severity were associated with MSD. Using binary logistic regression, SLEDAI-2K and pain severity remained independently correlated with MSD (). In the multiple linear regression analysis, pain severity was the only independent correlate of PCS (), while cognitive function and BDI II were the main factors associated with MCS ( and , respectively). Conclusion. Pain severity and disease activity are associated with MSD in our unique population, are potentially modifiable, and deserve further attention in the clinic. Depression and pain significantly affect HRQoL and should be aggressively managed.

  • Polymorphism in STAT4 Increase the Risk of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus:
           An Updated Meta-Analysis

    • Abstract: Previous studies have reported that STAT4 rs7574865 conferred the susceptibility to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). In this study, a meta-analysis (including 32 comparative studies of 11384 patients and 17609 controls) was conducted to investigate the role of STAT4 polymorphism in SLE in a comprehensive way. We found that the Asian population had the highest prevalence of the T allele than any other study population at 32.2% and that STAT4 rs7574865 polymorphism was associated with SLE in the overall population (,-1.665, ). In the subgroup analysis by ethnicity, STAT4 rs7574865 T allele was shown to be risk factor in SLE in Asian, European, and American origins. Our results do support STAT4 rs7574865 polymorphism as a susceptibility factor for SLE in populations of different ethnic and that its prevalence is ethnicity dependent.

  • Retrospective Analysis of Factors Associated with Fracture in 714 Patients
           with Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    • Abstract: Introduction. Polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) is a disease of the elderly, associated with increased fracture risk due to glucocorticosteroid (GC) treatment with the additional possible influence of chronic inflammation. Risk factors for fracture in PMR have not been extensively studied. Hip structure analysis (HSA) is a way to measure bone morphology in the hip using dual X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA). It has been used as a predictor of fracture in epidemiological settings. HSA has not been studied in PMR before. Objectives. The object of this retrospective study was to determine if fracture risk in PMR was associated with densitometry data and to determine the influence, if any, of HSA on that association. Methods. 714 patients with PMR referred for a bone density estimate at a district general hospital from June 2004 to October 2010 were studied. Demographic data, GC use, alcohol consumption, smoking status, secondary osteoporosis, and fracture history were recorded. Bone mineral density (BMD), score, score, body composition data, and HSA measurements were collected. These were geometric measurements taken from 2-dimensional DEXA images of the hip. Fracture was modelled as an outcome variable using logistic regression models, adjusted for age and sex. And the fit of the model was assessed by comparing the area under the curve (AUC). Results. 714 patients were studied, 532 (75%) were female, and mean age was 70.5 with SD of 8.8. 703 (98%) had been treated with GCs. Lumbar and femoral BMD models were significantly associated with fracture. Right femur OR 0.062 (0.014-0.285), left femur OR 0.098 (0.023-0.412), right femoral neck 0.078 (0.014-0.43), left femoral neck 0.104 (0.022-0.492), L1 0.192 (0.066-0.56), L2 OR 0.138 (0.053-0.358), L3 0.192 (0.079-0.463), and L4 0.243 (0.108-0.544). Cross-sectional area was the only HSA parameter that was associated with fracture OR 0.988 (0.980–0.997). Conclusion. L2 association models were strongest. Prospective studies are needed to elucidate whether these factors predict future fracture. GC data were binary, not reflecting dose and duration.

  • Autoimmune Regulator Gene Polymorphisms in Egyptian Systemic Lupus
           Erythematosus Patients: Preliminary Results

    • Abstract: Background. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a systemic autoimmune disease. The autoimmune regulator (AIRE) is a master regulator of self-tolerance development. AIRE mutations lead to the development of autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 1 while AIRE polymorphisms have been linked to organ-specific autoimmunity. The study is aimed at addressing the association between AIRE polymorphisms, rs2075876 (G > A) and rs760426 (A > G), and SLE susceptibility and expression in Egyptian patients. Methods. Ninety-nine patients were included. One hundred and ten, and 123 control subjects were genotyped for rs2075876 and rs760426, respectively. Lupus severity was assessed using the Lupus Severity of Disease Index and Lupus Severity Index (LSI). Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics (SLICC)/American College of Rheumatology (ACR) damage index was considered. Genotyping was done using StepOne Real-Time PCR. Results. AIRE rs760426 GG was more frequent in the patients under the genotype level (14.1% vs. 4.9%, ) and recessive model (14.1% vs. 4.9%, , (1.2-8.7)). Musculoskeletal involvement and nephritis were associated with AIRE rs2075876 under the dominant (97.9% vs. 80.8%, , (1.3-89.2)) and recessive models (100% vs. 69.3%, ), respectively; and both were linked to AIRE rs2075876 at the allelic level: 98.3% vs. 85%, , (1.3-76.6) and 82.8% vs. 68.6, , (1-4.7), respectively. Patients with AIRE rs2075876 A alleles had a higher damage index ( 1 ± 1.3 vs. 0.6 ± 1.1, ) while the LSI was greater in patients with AIRE rs2075876 (8.5 ± 0.5 vs. 7.8 ± 1.3, ) and rs760426 (8.6 ± 11 vs. 7.8 ± 1.2, ) under the recessive models. Conclusion. AIRE rs760426 could share in SLE susceptibility while AIRE rs2075876 could influence the disease expression and burden in Egyptian patients.

  • Cutaneous Manifestations of “Lupus”: Systemic Lupus
           Erythematosus and Beyond

    • Abstract: Lupus, Latin for “wolf,” is a term used to describe many dermatologic conditions, some of which are related to underlying systemic lupus erythematosus, while others are distinct disease processes. Cutaneous lupus erythematosus includes a wide array of visible skin manifestations and can progress to systemic lupus erythematosus in some cases. Cutaneous lupus can be subdivided into three main categories: acute cutaneous lupus erythematosus, subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus, and chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus. Physical exam, laboratory studies, and histopathology enable differentiation of cutaneous lupus subtypes. This differentiation is paramount as the subtype of cutaneous lupus informs upon treatment, disease monitoring, and prognostication. This review outlines the different cutaneous manifestations of lupus erythematosus and provides an update on both topical and systemic treatment options for these patients. Other conditions that utilize the term “lupus” but are not cutaneous lupus erythematosus are also discussed.

  • Update in the Management of ANCA-Associated Vasculitis: Recent
           Developments and Future Perspectives

    • Abstract: Significant progress has been made in the treatment of ANCA-associated vasculitides (AAV), notably in granulomatosis with polyangiitis and microscopic polyangiitis. Over the past few years, many innovative studies have changed the way we now induce and maintain remission in AAV; achieving remission while limiting treatment toxicity is the key. This article provides an in-depth, up-to-date summary of recent trials and suggests treatment algorithms for induction and maintenance of remission based on the latest guidelines. Future possible therapies in AAV will also be discussed.
