Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a multisystem autoimmune disease with manifestations that vary widely in severity. Although minority populations are at higher risk for SLE and have more severe outcomes (1), population-based estimates of mortality by race and ethnicity are often lacking, particularly for Asian and Hispanic/Latino persons. Among 812 patients in the California Lupus Surveillance Project (CLSP) during 2007-2009 (2,3), who were matched to the 2007-2017 National Death Index (NDI...

Objective Epidemiologic data for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is limited, particularly for racial/ethnic subpopulations in the United States (U.S.). Leveraging data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Lupus Registry network of population-based SLE registries, a meta-analysis estimating U.S. SLE prevalence was performed. Methods The CDC National Lupus Registry network included four registries in unique states and a fifth in the Indian Health Service (IHS). All...

Objective To analyze trends in opioid prescriptions during visits to office-based physicians made by adults with arthritis in the US from 2006 to 2015. Methods We analyzed nationally representative data on patient visits to office-based physicians from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS) 2006-2015. Visit percentages for first- and any-listed diagnosis of arthritis by age groups and sex are reported. Time points were grouped into 2-year intervals to increase the reliability of est...

Introduction Limited estimates of prescribed opioid use among adults with arthritis exist. All-cause (i.e., for any condition) prescribed opioid dispensed (referred to as opioid prescription in the remainder of this abstract) in the past 12 months among U.S. adults aged ≥18 years (n=35,427) were studied, focusing on adults with arthritis (n=12,875). Methods In 2018–2019, estimates were generated using Medical Expenditure Panel Survey data: (1) 2015 prevalence of 1 or more opioid prescriptions to...

BACKGROUND Medication access and adherence are important determinants of health outcomes. We investigated factors associated with access and cost-related non-adherence to prescriptions in a population-based cohort of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients and controls. METHODS Detailed sociodemographic and prescription data were collected by structured interview in 2014-2015 from participants in the Michigan Lupus Epidemiology & Surveillance (MILES) Cohort. We compared access between cases ...

OBJECTIVE: To examine associations between dietary intake of omega-3 (n-3; generally anti-inflammatory) and omega-6 (n-6; generally pro-inflammatory) fatty acids and patient-reported outcomes in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS: This study was based on the population-based Michigan Lupus Epidemiology & Surveillance (MILES) Cohort. Estimates of n-3 and n-6 intake were derived from Diet History Questionnaire II items (DHQ II; past year with portion size version). Patient-reported outcom...

Background/Purpose Chronic Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus (CCLE), including discoid lupus, often leads to scarring and disproportionately afflicts African American (AA) people. Smoking worsens the severity of skin lupus and is highly prevalent in those from disadvantaged groups. We examined sociodemographic disparities in tobacco smoking among patients with CCLE confined to the skin (primary CCLE [pCCLE]). Methods Cross-sectional study of adults with dermatologist-diagnosed pCCLE consented into t...
