OBJECTIVES This retrospective study aimed to investigate the risk factors associated with delayed wound healing (DWH) after orthopedic surgery in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients treated with biological disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (bDMARDs). METHODS We reviewed medical records of 276 orthopedic procedures for 187 RA patients treated with bDMARDs. As a preoperative nutritional status assessment, we evaluated body mass index (BMI), prognostic nutritional index (PNI), and controlling nu...

OBJECTIVES To validate and establish targets for the physician-based clinical scale for foot surgery in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients based on patient-reported outcomes from a multicenter prospective cohort. METHODS We collected data on demographics, values from the RA foot and ankle scale by the Japanese Society for Surgery of the Foot (JSSF-RA), and patient-reported outcomes (PROs) including the Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index (HAQ-DI) before (baseline) and 6 and 12 month...

Objective To evaluate the effectiveness and drug retention rate of golimumab (GLM) for long-term use in daily practice for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Methods Patients with RA who started GLM therapy with a minimum follow-up period of 52 weeks were included. The patients were divided into a biologic-naive group and switch group. The disease activity score (DAS) 28-erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) (DAS28-ESR), grip power, and Japanese version of the health assessment questionnair...

OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to evaluate the association between the periodontal and serological parameters and the disease activity of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and between the anti-agalactosyl immunoglobulin G (IgG) titer and periodontitis severity. The objective was also to assess the effect of supragingival scaling on the serological parameters in patients with RA. BACKGROUND The periodontal and serological parameters in relation to the autoimmune inflammatory response have bee...

Objective To investigate the clinical outcomes of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients who discontinued infliximab (IFX) treatment at our hospital. Methods Among 249 patients receiving IFX from 2007 to 2015, we retrospectively investigated the clinical courses of 18 who discontinued IFX after achieving the 28-joint disease activity score based on the erythrocyte sedimentation (DAS28-ESR) clinical remission (CR) and whose clinical courses were available continuously for 96 weeks after discontinuati...

Hepcidin, a major regulator of iron metabolism and homeostasis, is regulated by inflammation. Recent studies have suggested that hepcidin and iron metabolism are involved in osteoporosis, and the aim of this study was to determine whether serum hepcidin levels are correlated with the degree of osteoporosis in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). A total of 262 patients with RA (67.5 ± 11.4 years; 77.5% female) were enrolled. Serum iron, ferritin, and hepcidin levels were positively correlate...

Background: Although methotrexate is the anchor drug, it took some days to check contraindications, such as interstitial pneumonia, hepatitis B virus infection, and latent tuberculosis infection. Therefore, we sometimes start rheumatoid arthritis (RA) treatment with other disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD) in daily clinical setting. Iguratimod (IGU) is a newly developed DMARD approved in Japan in September 2012, and the efficacy of IGU for DMARD naive patients has not been thoroughly e...
