HLA-B*52 is an established genetic factor in Takayasu arteritis (TAK). Recently, single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in IL12B (rs6871626) and LILRA3 (rs103294) were newly identified as non-HLA susceptibility loci in TAK. Here, we examined how these SNPs contribute to clinical characteristics and vascular damage in TAK. We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 99 TAK patients enrolled in our previous genome-wide association study, and whose genotypes for IL12B rs6871626, LILRA3 rs103...

OBJECTIVES It is important to clarify the relationship between irreversible organ damage and the quality of life (QOL) by considering the unique factors of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). We aimed to clarify their correlation using SLE-specific QOL assessment tools. We also aimed to identify which type of organ damage is adversely correlated with the QOL. METHODS We conducted a questionnaire-based survey of outpatients with SLE at Kyoto University Hospital and evaluated irrever...

Difficult-to-treat rheumatoid arthritis (D2T RA) is a multifactorial condition in which disease activity of RA persists despite consecutive treatment with biological or targeted synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (b/tsDMARDs). To evaluate the prevalence and predictive risk factors of D2T RA in our institution, a single-center, retrospective study was conducted. Medical records of RA patients, who visited our hospital from 2011 to 2020 and had a follow-up of more than 6 months, were ...

Objective We aimed to investigate the efficacy of anti-IL-6 receptor antibody (aIL-6) and other biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (bDMARDs), such as TNF inhibitor and CTLA4-Ig in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in patients with knee joint involvement. Methods We retrospectively analyzed 1059 treatment courses of patients with RA who visited our hospitals and were treated with bDMARDs. We categorized them into two groups, with or without knee joint involvement. We investig...

OBJECTIVES We aimed to clarify the clinical implication of ultrasound (US)-detected foot joint inflammation in tightly controlled patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS We evaluated bilateral foot joints (second to fifth metatarsophalangeal joints of forefoot; tarsometatarsal, cuneonavicular and midtarsal joints of midfoot) of 430 RA patients for synovitis using Power Doppler (PD) imaging by US. We made a cross-sectional and a 3-year longitudinal analysis about the associations of US-d...
