Gout is a chronic metabolic and immune disease, and its specific pathogenesis is still unclear. When the serum uric acid exceeds its saturation in the blood or tissue fluid, it is converted to monosodium urate crystals, which lead to acute arthritis of varying degrees, urinary stones, or irreversible peripheral joint damage, and in severe cases, impairment of vital organ function. Gout flare is a clinically significant state of acute inflammation in gout. The current treatment is mostly anti-inflammatory analgesics, which have numerous side effects with limited treatment methods...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the construct validity, reliability, and treatment goal threshold of a Thai-language version of the 12-item Psoriatic Arthritis Impact of Disease (Thai-PsAID) questionnaire in patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA). METHODS: This cross-sectional study involved administering the proposed Thai-PsAID to 117 Thai patients with PsA. Reliability was assessed by Cronbach's α test and intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC). Construct validity was assessed using Spearman correlation with clinical disease activity index for psoriatic arthritis (cDAPSA), the Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ), EQ-5D index, and the patient-acceptable symptom state (PASS)...

BACKGROUND: Infections are considered risk factors for autoimmune inflammatory rheumatic diseases (AIRDs), the incidence of which is considered to have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The impact of non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) on the incidence of AIRDs and their associated health care services and medical expenses in Korea was investigated. METHODS: We included all AIRD cases reported between January 2016 and February 2021 based on the National Health Insurance Service data...

AIM: This study addresses the challenge of predicting the course of Adult-onset Still's disease (AoSD), a rare systemic autoinflammatory disorder of unknown origin. Precise prediction is crucial for effective clinical management, especially in the absence of specific laboratory indicators. METHODS: We assessed the effectiveness of combining traditional biomarkers with the k-medoids unsupervised clustering algorithm in forecasting the various clinical courses of AoSD-monocyclic, polycyclic, or chronic articular...

BACKGROUND: Preclinical and epidemiological studies suggest that proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) had a potential effect on the development of SLE, but it was unclear whether a causal relationship exists. We aimed to investigate the association between genetically proxied inhibition of PCSK9 and the risk of SLE using a two-sample Mendelian randomization (MR) approach. METHODS: Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with PCSK9 were extracted from pooled data obtained from the Global Lipid Genetics Consortium (GLGC) Genome-wide Association Study (GWAS) related to LDL-c levels, which was used as a proxy for PCSK9 inhibition...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the incidence and associated factors of initial and recurrent severe infections in hospitalized patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS: SLE patients that first hospitalized between 2010 and 2021 were studied retrospectively and divided into SLE with and without baseline severe infection groups. The primary outcome was the occurrence of severe infection during follow-up. Cox regression models were used to calculate the hazard ratio (HR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) for initial and recurrent severe infections...

BACKGROUND: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are widely recognized in the pathogenesis of autoimmune disease. As a key regulatory factor, miRNAs have introduced new biomarkers for the early diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and provided a favorable research direction for the development of novel therapeutic targets. This study aimed to explore the hotspots of miRNA research related to RA published from different countries, organizations, and authors. METHODS: From 2001 to 2022, publications on miRNA related to RA were identified in the Web of Science database...

AIM: Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection may have a more severe course in patients with underlying disease or who have had immunosuppression. In this study, it was aimed to determine the frequency of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and the mortality rates related to COVID-19 among patients with rheumatic disease. METHODS: The patients who were followed up with rheumatic disease in the rheumatology outpatient clinic in a tertiary hospital were retrospectively assessed if they had COVID-19 infection or not between March 2020 and January 2022...
