  • Association between Health Literacy, Patient Activation, and Functional
           Capacity in Individuals with Rheumatoid Arthritis

    • Abstract: Objectives:To describe health literacy, patient activation, and functional capacity in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis and to evaluate the associations of health literacy and activation level with functional capacity.Methods:A cross-sectional study involving patients with rheumatoid arthritis was carried out at the rheumatology service of a teaching hospital. Health literacy was assessed by applying the short version of the Test of Functional Health Literacy in Adults. Patient Activation was measured by using the summarized version of the Patient Activation Measure. The Health Assessment Questionnaire was applied to evaluate functional capacity. Sociodemographic and clinical variables were also collected to carried out univariate and multivariate analyses by using logistic regression.Results:The sample was composed of 179 patients, of whom 90.5% (n = 162) were women. The participants’ average age was 58.3 ± 11.4 years. The prevalence of patients with inadequate or marginal health literacy was high (67%). In contrast, 74% of the patients showed high activation levels. The average score on the Health Assessment Questionnaire was 1.08 ± 0.7. Adequate health literacy was negatively associated with higher Health Assessment Questionnaire scores (OR = 0.42; 95% CI 0.20 – 0.86; = 0.018), and high activation levels were negatively associated with moderate to severe functional limitation (level 3/moderate activation level – OR = 0.24; 95% CI 0.10 – 0.56; = 0.001; level 4/high activation level – OR = 0.22; 95% CI 0.08 – 0.50; = 0.000).Conclusion:Health professionals must be aware of health literacy and activation levels of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, given that interventions to improve them represent an opportunity to increase functional capacity.
  • Rituximab for the Treatment of Common Variable Immunodeficiency (CVID)
           with Pulmonary and Central Nervous System Involvement

    • Abstract: Background:Granulomatous and lymphocytic interstitial lung disease (GLILD) represents a typical form of pulmonary manifestation of CVID. Except for glucocorticoid- and immunoglobulin-administration, no standardized treatment recommendations exist.Objective:To investigate our CVID-patients with GLILD for the applied immunosuppressive regimen, with a focus on rituximab.Methods:A retrospective analysis of all CVID-patients for the manifestation and treatment of GLILD at a single German center was performed in this study. For the evaluation of treatment-response, CT-imaging and pulmonary function testing were used.Results:50 patients were identified for the diagnosis of a CVID. 12% (n = 6) have radiological and/or histological confirmed diagnosis of a GLILD. Three patients received rituximab in a dose of 2 x 1000mg, separated by 2 weeks repeatedly. All patients showed radiological response and stabilization or improvement of the pulmonary function. Rituximab was used in one patient over 13 years with repeated treatment-response. Furthermore, the synchronic central nervous system-involvement of a GLILD-patient also responded to rituximab-treatment. With sufficient immunoglobulin-replacement-therapy, the occurring infections were manageable without the necessity of intensive care treatment.Conclusion:Rituximab might be considered as an effective and relatively safe treatment for CVID-patients with GLILD.
  • Self-Reported Symptoms in a Cohort of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Systemic
           Lupus Erythematosus during the COVID-19 Quarantine Period

    • Abstract: Background:During the first three months of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Philippines, there was a supply shortage of hydroxychloroquine and methotrexate. Limited access to medication and the life changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic may predispose patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) to disease flares.Objective:This study aimed to investigate self-reported symptoms of disease flares among patients with rheumatoid arthritis or systemic lupus erythematosus during the COVID-19 pandemic.Methods:A total of 512 completed online surveys from patients with SLE or RA were collected. The data included sociodemographic characteristics, self-reported physical symptoms, health service utilization, and availability of hydroxychloroquine and methotrexate.Results:Seventy-nine percent of respondents had lupus, while 21% had RA. One-third of the cohort had contact with their attending physician during the two-month quarantine period prior to the survey. Eighty-two percent were prescribed hydroxychloroquine and 23.4% were prescribed methotrexate; but 68.6% and 65%, respectively, had “irregular” intake of these medicines due to unavailability. The current health status was reported as good by 66.2%; 24% had no symptoms during the two-week period prior to the survey. The most common symptoms experienced were joint pain (51%), muscle pain (35%), headache (26.8%), and skin rash (19.1%). Five percent had a combination of these four most common symptoms. Irregular supply of hydroxychloroquine among patients with SLE (n=323) was associated with more frequent occurrence of muscle pain (40.6% vs 27.9%, p=0.03) or rash (27.4% vs 11.7%, p
  • Gene Polymorphism of XRCC1 in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    • Abstract: Introduction:There are debates about the role of the X-ray repair cross-complementation group 1 (XRCC1) Arg399Gln gene in the pathogenesis of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE).Methods:The study was a case-control study carried out on 100 recently diagnosed SLE patients compared to 100 control subjects. The study of XRCC1 Arg399Gln polymorphism was performed by a polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length polymorphism.Results and Discussion:A higher frequency of ‘G’ allele in SLE (38.5%) versus control (32%) was noticed; however, this difference was not statistically significant (p = 0.174). Besides, a slightly higher frequency of G/G genotype was found in SLE (22%) . control (12%); again, this difference was not statistically significant (p = 0.157). A statistically significantly higher proportion of arthritis, serositis, and thrombocytopenia was observed in the A/A genotype (p = 0.010, 0.032, and 0.036, respectively). Furthermore, we noticed a statistically significant lower hemoglobin level in G/G genotype (p = 0.027). Otherwise, there was no statistically significant difference between the three genotypes regarding other parameters: photosensitivity, malar rash, oral ulceration, ANA, anti-dsDNA antibody, anemia, leucopenia, neurologic manifestations, and all lab parameters except hemoglobin level. Similar results were reported previously.According to genotype, in the study of Clinical and laboratory parameters in SLE patients, a statistically significantly higher proportion of arthritis, serositis, and thrombocytopenia was observed in the A/A genotype (p =0 .01, 0.032, and 0.036 respectively). Furthermore, we noticed a statistically significant lower hemoglobin level in G/G genotype (p = 0.027). These findings suggest a pathogenic connection between the seriousness of the defective DNA repair and the autoimmune severity; such connection is consistent with that found in several murine models. Additionally, negative regulation of the genes encoding the proteins involved in the NER pathway in SLE patients, specifically and XPC, has been found previously.Conclusion:The present study highlights the higher insignificant increase of G allele and GG genotype of XRCC1 399 gene in patients with SLE compared to healthy control. This increase was significantly associated with anemia in patients, which may reflect the aggravation of environmental risk factors to SLE associated with the reduced repair of DNA. Further longitudinal studies are required to validate the present findings.
