OBJECTIVE: Systemic lupus erythematosus, is a chronic autoimmune disease with a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations. A decision aid (DA) for lupus was developed and implemented in 15 rheumatology clinics throughout the United States. This study explored the experiences of patients who viewed the DA to understand how patients engage with and respond to the lupus DA. METHODS: We conducted a qualitative descriptive study using semi-structured interviews with a convenience sample of 24 patients during May-July 2022...

OBJECTIVE: Telehealth has been proposed as a safe and effective alternative to in-person care for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The purpose of this study was to evaluate factors associated with telehealth appropriateness in outpatient RA encounters. METHODS: A prospective cohort study (1/1/21-8/31/21) was conducted using electronic health record data from outpatient RA encounters in a single academic rheumatology practice. Rheumatology providers rated the telehealth appropriateness of their own encounters using the Encounter Appropriateness Score for You (EASY) immediately following each encounter...

Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM) are a heterogeneous group of autoimmune disorders classically characterized by proximal skeletal muscle inflammation leading to weakness, but they often possess additional systemic manifestations such as cutaneous, pulmonary, and articular disease.1 Although originally dichotomized as either dermatomyositis (DM) or polymyositis, the discovery of new myositis-specific antibodies (MSA) and myositis-associated antibodies has led to the delineation of more refined IIM patient subgroups...

OBJECTIVE: We sought to identify (a) what types of information US adults with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMD) perceive as most important to know about their disease, and (b) what functions they would use in an RMD-specific smartphone app. METHODS: Nominal groups with RMD patients were conducted via online tools to generate a list of needed education topics. Based on nominal group results, a survey with final educational items was administered online, along with questions about desired functions of a smartphone app for RMD and wearable use, to patients within a large community rheumatology practice-based research network and the PatientSpot registry...

OBJECTIVE: The prevalence of hypertension, a major cardiovascular risk factor, is increased in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and may be driven by immune activation. The purpose of this study was to determine if ambulatory 24-hour blood pressure (BP) is elevated in RA versus control participants and associated with immune activation. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study of 46 patients with RA and 23 control participants. Participants wore an ambulatory BP monitor which obtained diurnal BP every 15-30 minutes and nocturnal BP every 30 minutes...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association between spinal damage and functional capacity in patients with axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) and to compare the performance of two radiographic scores [modified Stoke AS Spine Score (mSASSS) and Combined AS Spine Score (CASSS)]. METHODS: Radiographs from 101 axSpA patients were scored according to de Vlam et al. for cervical facet joints (CFJ) and mSASSS for vertebral bodies. CASSS was calculated as the sum of both scores...

OBJECTIVE: Although previous studies have explored the association of drinking with gout risk, the dose-response relationship was uncertain and the evidence between subtypes of alcoholic beverages and gout risk was limited. METHODS: The weekly alcoholic beverage consumption in the United Kingdom Biobank (UKB) was collected and calculated. The Cox regression model was applied to assess the impact of alcohol drinking and its subtypes on gout risk by calculating the hazard ratio (HR) and 95% confidence interval (CI)...

In this issue of The Journal of Rheumatology , Wiens et al1 describe how Indigenous people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and their unaffected first-degree relatives perceive access to healthcare services in Canada. This was a cohort study with individuals from remote communities and urbanized centers, representatives of which participated in the construction of a questionnaire to explore health accessibility.

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to investigate the impact of 92 inflammatory proteins on the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with early RA. METHODS: This study included consecutive patients with early RA recruited 1995-2002. Stored plasma samples were analyzed for 92 inflammatory proteins. CVD diagnoses were retrieved from national in-patient and cause-of-death registries. Statistical analyses were pre-designated as hypothesis-driven or exploratory...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is prevalent in many Indigenous North American First Nations (FN) and tends to be seropositive, familial, and disabling, as well as associated with highly unfavorable outcomes such as early mortality. The risk of developing RA is based on a perfect storm of gene-environment interactions underpinning this risk. The gene-environment interactions include a high frequency of shared epitope encoding HLA alleles, particularly HLA-DRB1*1402 , in the background population, and prevalent predisposing environmental factors such as smoking and periodontal disease...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of our study was to compare dispensation of rheumatic medications between older male and female patients with early rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA). METHODS: This retrospective cohort study was performed using health administrative data from Ontario, Canada (years 2010 - 2017) on incident patients with RA and PsA, who were 66 years or older at the time of diagnosis. Yearly dispensation of rheumatic drugs was compared between older male and female patients for three years after diagnosis using multivariable regression models, after adjusting for confounders...

OBJECTIVE: Dyadic coping, the process of coping that transpires between couples challenged by one partner's illness, is an important predictor of disease adjustment and patient wellbeing. However, dyadic coping in rheumatoid arthritis remains unclear. This study examines the effect of dyadic coping on psychological distress and relationship quality from both participants with rheumatoid arthritis as well as their spouse's perspective. METHODS: Participants and their spouses were invited to participate in an online survey study if they were 18+ years and had lived together for more than a year...

Tumor necrosis factor inhibitors are effective and recommended in treating patients with coexisting spondyloarthritis (SpA) and ulcerative colitis (UC); however, the evidence of their superiority over other drugs is insufficient.1 Although Janus kinase inhibitors (JAKi) have shown effectiveness in treating UC and psoriatic arthritis, there are no reports of treating coexisting SpA and UC with JAKi monotherapy.

OBJECTIVE: To assess whether Lupus Low Disease Activity State (LLDAS) attainment is associated with favorable outcomes in patients with recent onset systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS: Data from a 13-country longitudinal SLE cohort were collected prospectively between 2013 and 2020. An inception cohort was defined based on disease duration < 1 year at enrollment. Patient characteristics between inception and noninception cohorts were compared. Survival analyses were performed to examine the association between LLDAS attainment and damage accrual and flare...

OBJECTIVE: Given global shortages in the rheumatology workforce, the demand for rheumatology assessment often exceeds the capacity to provide timely access to care. Accurate triage of patient referrals is important to ensure appropriate utilization of finite resources. We assessed the feasibility of physiotherapist-led triage utilizing a standardized protocol, in identifying cases of inflammatory arthritis (IA), as compared to usual rheumatologist triage of referrals for joint pain, in a tertiary care rheumatology clinic...
