Inherited C1q deficiency is associated strongly with the development of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The aim of our study was to evaluate the ability of monocytes from SLE patients without inherited C1q deficiency to up-regulate C1q-mRNA upon stimulation. Furthermore, we wanted to elucidate the physiological stimulus for up-regulation of C1q-mRNA. Peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC)-derived monocytes from 10 SLE patients, 10 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and 10 healthy cont...

Objective: To quantify 18-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) accumulation in large vessels in patients with polymyalgia rheumatica by positron emission tomography (PET), and to compare these data with serological markers of inflammation. Methods: 13 untreated patients with active polymyalgia rheumatica underwent FDG positron emission tomography; eight were analysed in a second PET when in clinical remission. Six patients with other highly inflammatory conditions served as controls. For quantitative analys...
