Objectives Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a heterogeneous systemic autoimmune disease with distinct subsets identified by specific autoantibodies. Some environmental agents might play a role in SSc pathogenesis, including silicone breast implants (SBI). This association has been controversial in previous literature and only few studies reported the auto-antibody status in these SSc women. The objective of this study was to evaluate the association of SBI with SSc in a large cohort of Italian patien...

Background: the aim of this study was to investigate the pharmacokinetic (PK) and safety profile of high-dose vitamin D supplementation, comparing different schedules (daily, weekly, or bi-weekly) in an otherwise healthy vitamin D-deficient population. Methods: single-center, open-label study on healthy subjects deficient in vitamin D (25 (OH)D < 20 ng/mL), randomized to receive cholecalciferol (DIBASE®, Abiogen Pharma, Italy) using three different schedules: Group A: 10,000 IU/day for eight wee...

OBJECTIVE: The aim was to evaluate the effect of a home-based exercise program on functional capacity, health-related quality of life (HRQoL), and disability, in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc). METHODS: A 6-month randomized controlled trial was conducted on SSc patients by comparing a home-based minimally supervised exercise program (exercise on a stationary cycle and strengthening of upper limbs; stretching of the hands) with usual care. At baseline and after 3 and 6 months, the patient...

OBJECTIVES: Data on macrovascular involvement in systemic sclerosis (SSc) are still debatable. The aim of this study was to estimate its prevalence and possible determinants in a large cohort. METHODS: One hundred and fifty-five outpatients with SSc were enrolled. Data about disease characteristics and cardiovascular risk factors were collected and patients underwent ecocolor Doppler ultrasonography of arteries of the neck and lower (LL) and upper (UL) limbs. RESULTS: Mean age was 57.9 +/- 14.5 ...

Aim: To define and score finger soft tissue oedema in psoriatic dactylitis by ultrasound. Material and methods: A systematic literature review (SLR) on ultrasound-detected finger soft tissue oedema was performed. Subsequently, based on the SLR, a Delphi survey was developed and circulated among a group of 13 expert sonographers, in order to obtain agreement on detection, definition and scoring of finger oedema by B-mode and power Doppler ultrasound. Agreement was considered achieved when each st...

Osteoporosis is a chronic disease characterized by an increased risk of fragility fracture. Patients affected by rheumatic diseases are at greater risk of developing osteoporosis. The purpose of the present review is to discuss the pathogenesis, epidemiology, and treatment of osteoporosis in patients affected by rheumatic diseases with special focus for rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, spondyloarthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic sclerosis, vasculitides, Sjogren syndrome, ...

Abstract Bone loss is a typical consequence of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). It occurs not only locally, affecting the inflamed joints (erosions), but also systemically, leading to osteopenia and/or overt osteoporosis, with increased risk of fragility fractures. This complication, often underestimated, can worsen the burden of disability in RA patients. Moreover, systemic and local bone loss are closely intertwined as osteoporosis per se can facilitate the development of erosions. A fundamental rol...

AIM: Low levels of vitamin D (25OHD) have been found to associated with digital ulcers (DUs) in systemic sclerosis (SSc), although only cross-sectional studies have been performed. We aimed to investigate if variations in vitamin D serum levels over time affect DU in SSc. METHODS: This is a retrospective study on 65 patients. 25OHD was measured in 2011 and 2016 and its variations correlated with DU. RESULTS: The mean age of our cohort was 58 (SD 12) years with a mean disease duration of 9.5 (5.3...
