OBJECTIVES: Our objectives were to quantify the relationships between fatigue, pain interference and physical disability in children with JIA, and test whether fatigue mediates the relationship between pain interference and physical disability in JIA. METHODS: Patients enrolled within 3 months of JIA diagnosis in the Canadian Alliance of Pediatric Rheumatology Investigators (CAPRI) Registry between February 2017 and May 2023 were included. Their parents completed the PROMIS fatigue and pain interference short proxy questionnaires, and the CHAQ disability index at registry enrollment...

OBJECTIVES: This study compared opioid prescribing among ambulatory visits with Systemic Autoimmune/Inflammatory Rheumatic Diseases (SARDs) or without, and assessed factors associated with opioid prescribing in SARDs. METHODS: This cross-sectional study used the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey between 2006 and 2019. Adult (≥18) visits with a primary diagnosis of SARDs, including rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, or systemic lupus erythematosus were included in the study...

OBJECTIVE: To determine predictors of gout flare when commencing allopurinol using the "start-low go-slow" dose escalation strategy. METHODS: A post hoc analysis of a 12 month double-blind placebo-controlled non-inferiority trial with participants randomised 1:1 to colchicine 0.5mg daily or placebo for the first six months was undertaken. Multivariate logistic regression models were used to identify independent predictors of gout flares in the first and last six months of the trial...

OBJECTIVE: Osteoarthritis (OA) is frequently perceived as a disease of the elderly and an inevitable result of aging. As OA studies often are restricted to older adults, there is limited information on OA in younger adults. This study describes the burden of OA across a wide age range and compares younger and older adults. METHODS: Descriptive analysis of the Survey on Living with Chronic Diseases in Canada - Arthritis Component, a nationally representative survey of Canadians aged 20+ years who reported an arthritis diagnosis in the Canadian Community Health Survey, a general health population survey...

BACKGROUND: The classic conception of pain etiology in rheumatologic disease is nociceptive pain - tissue injury and inflammation signaling through peripheral and central nerve fibers. But this can be mixed with other pain etiologies, including nociplastic, augmented pain experience due to central sensitization. The pain of fibromyalgia (FM) is nociplastic, occurs in 10-30% of rheumatologic disease patients, and its presence can influence disease severity assessment. OBJECTIVES: 1) Ascertain the prevalence of FM and Widespread Pain (WP) in the CorEvitas psoriatic arthritis (PsA) registry as assessed by the Widespread Pain Index (WPI) and Symptom Severity Scale (SSS) questionnaires...

OBJECTIVE: We describe the characteristics, content, and effectiveness of digital self-management (SM) education programs for lupus and other chronic conditions to identify gaps and inform the improvement of future programs in lupus. METHODS: Three bibliographic databases were searched for articles published between May 2012 and April 2022. The search was cast to capture the breadth of digital SM education programs in the following conditions: lupus, epilepsy, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, sickle cell anemia, Sjogren's syndrome, psoriatic arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis...

OBJECTIVE: The objective was to ascertain pegloticase persistence and adverse events associated with concomitant immunomodulatory drug use in patients with gout. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of gout patients using the ACR's Rheumatology Informatics System for Effectiveness (RISE) registry from 1/2016 through 6/2020. The first pegloticase infusion defined the index date. Based on concomitant immunomodulatory drug use, we identified 3 exposure groups: 1) Immunomodulatory drug initiators - patients initiating an immunomodulatory prescription ±60 days from index date; 2) Immunomodulatory drug prevalent users - patients receiving their first immunomodulatory drug prescription >60 days before the index date with at least one prescription within ±60 days of index date; and 3) Immunomodulatory non-users - patients receiving pegloticase without concomitant IMM drugs...

OBJECTIVE: Translation of knee osteoarthritis (KOA) clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) to practice remains suboptimal. The primary purpose of this systematic review was to describe the use of implementation strategies to promote KOA CPG recommended care. METHODS: MEDLINE (via PubMed), Embase, CINAHL, and Web of Science were searched from inception to February 23, 2023, and subsequently updated and expanded on January 16, 2024.

BACKGROUND: Social determinants of health (SDoH) likely contribute to outcome disparities in lupus nephritis (LN). Understanding the overall burden and contribution of each domain could guide future health-equity focused interventions to improve outcomes and reduce disparities in LN. Objectives of this meta-analysis were to: 1) determine the association of overall SDoH and specific SDoH domains on LN outcomes, and 2) develop a framework for the multidimensional impact of SDoH on LN outcomes...

OBJECTIVE: Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is characterized by granulomatous inflammation of the medium and large-sized arteries accompanied by remodeling of the vessel wall. Fibroblast activation protein alpha (FAP) is a serine protease which promotes both inflammation and fibrosis. Here we investigated the plasma levels and vascular expression of FAP in GCA. METHODS: Plasma FAP levels were measured with ELISA in treatment-naive GCA (n=60) and polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR, n=63) patients (compared to age- and sex-matched healthy controls (HC), n=42) and during follow-up, including treatment free remission (TFR)...

OBJECTIVES: To determine cervical cancer screening rates and factors associated with decreased cervical cancer screening in women with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study that enrolled consecutive women (aged 21-64) with SLE. We collected demographics, clinical characteristics, constructs of the Health Beliefs Model (HBM) (i.e., susceptibility, severity, barriers, benefits, cues to action, and self-efficacy), and self-reported cervical cancer screening (confirmed with the electronic medical record)...

OBJECTIVE: We aim to compare drug effectiveness and persistence between reference etanercept (ETN) and ETN biosimilar SB4 in psoriatic arthritis (PsA) patients naïve to ETN and to investigate drug effectiveness and persistence in those undergoing mandatory non-medical switch from ETN to SB4. METHODS: Retrospective comparative database study including 1138 PsA patients treated with ETN or SB4 (years 1999-2021) in Norway. Disease activity score in 28 joints (DAS28) and drug persistence were compared between unmatched ETN (n=644) and SB4 (n=252) cohorts and in matched analyses (n=144, both cohorts) at baseline using propensity score (PS) to adjust for confounders...
