: Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is an increasingly recognized complication of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. In addition, approximately one-third of patients have subclinical disease with varying degrees of functional impairment. Although risk factors for RA-related ILD are well established (e.g., older age, male sex, ever smoking, and seropositivity for rheumatoid factor and anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide), little is known about optima...

Abstract Objectives Assess the frequency of paradoxical reactions encountered in daily practice under tocilizumab, using the REGATE (Registry-RoActemra) registry. The secondary objectives were to determine the type of paradoxical reaction and the consequences of these reactions. Methods The REGATE registry is an independent prospective registry, promoted by the French Society of Rheumatology, consisting of patients treated with tocilizumab for rheumatoid arthritis. The paradoxical reaction was r...

Background The risk of serious infectious events (SIEs) is increased in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The aim of this study was to develop an age-adjusted comorbidity index (AACI) to predict, using baseline characteristics, the SIE risk in patients with RA treated with certolizumab pegol (CZP).

Lung ailments in rheumatic diseases present unique challenges for diagnosis and management and are a source of significant morbidity and mortality for patients. Unlike the idiopathic interstitial pneumonias, patients with rheumatic diseases experience lung disease in the context of a systemic disease that may make it more difficult to recognize and that may present greater risks with treatment. Despite recent advances in our awareness of these diseases, there is still a significant lack of under...

Objective. To evaluate the effect of rituximab (RTX) in patients with RA-related interstitial lung disease (RA-ILD) and identify factors associated with outcome after treatment. Methods. An observational study of patients with RA-ILD was conducted from a cohort of RTX-treated RA patients in a single centre for >10 years. Progression was defined by any of the following: a decrease of pre-RTX forced vital capacity (FVC) >10% or diffusion capacity of carbon monoxide (DLCO) >15% predicted, worsening...

Objective. The aims of this study were to evaluate whether treatment with tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affects the risk of developing severe extraarticular rheumatoid arthritis (ExRA) manifestations and to investigate potential predictors for developing ExRA. Methods. A dynamic community-based cohort of patients with RA was studied (n = 1977). Clinical records were reviewed and cases of severe ExRA were identified. Information on exposure to T...

Aim To determine whether the age at onset of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) has increased in Japan using a nationwide database (National Database of Rheumatic Diseases by iR-net in Japan, NinJa). Method We analyzed the data of RA patients who had been diagnosed with early RA (disease duration < 2 years) and newly registered in 2003, 2008 or 2013. Results The numbers of patients who developed RA in 2002–2003, 2007–2008, and 2012–2013 were 536, 812 and 1864, respectively. The mean age at RA onset incre...

Purpose of Review Rheumatoid vasculitis (RV) is an unusual complication of long-standing rheumatoid arthritis, which is characterized by the development of necrotizing or leukocytoclastic vasculitis involving small or medium-sized vessels. In this review, we aim to provide an update on the epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, and management of this challenging extra-articular manifestation.

AbstractObjectives: To evaluate the cost-effectiveness of biological disease modifying antirheumatic drugs (bDMARDs) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in a real-world setting in Japan.Methods: We used a state-transition model and parameters were determined from RA patients registered in the Institute of Rheumatology, Rheumatoid Arthritis (IORRA) cohort study on 421 patients who had failed at least one DMARD and started either 1 of 4 bDMARDs (bDMARD group; adalimumab, etanercept, inflixi...
