Patients new to a rheumatology practice will be asked if they want to consent to their blood sample, medical records, and hand/foot x-rays (with sharp scores) for the analysis and correlation with the diagnosis they will receive from the rheumatologist.
The hypothesis is that group interaction associated with individual interviews intensify the acquisition of safety skills compared to individual interviews alone in patients with CIR treated by subcutaneous biotherapies.
Greater advances are needed in two separate but related areas in healthcare: 1) the Clinical Decision Support Systems that complement the EHR use in support of routine patient care, population management and disease management; and 2) the use of the point‐of‐care observational data from the provider‐patient encounter that support realworld medical research and healthcare quality measure assessment. Real‐world evaluations of treatments of chronic diseases in the context of comorbid conditions and special populations (minorities, women, mentally ill, and those with addiction) are limited. The purpose of the OPERA database is to help address this unmet need in clinical research.
Cross sectional study assessing food practices and beliefs in RA, AS and DA (digital arthritis)
The overall objective of this project is to study the influence of modern anti-inflammatory treatments in established inflammatory rheumatic diseases (IRD) on antibody response elicited by pneumococcal vaccination using 13-valent conjugate vaccine in combined schedules with 23-valent polysaccharide vaccine. In addition, the aim is to study the clinical aspects of vaccination regarding: tolerability in immunosuppressed patients with IRD, impact on existing rheumatic disease, possible association with onset of new autoimmune diseases, long-term immunity following pneumococcal vaccination and efficacy in preventing invasive pneumococcal disease. Results from this study are expected to bridge the existing knowledge gap and contribute to body of evidence needed for recommendations and implementation of vaccination program in IRD patients.
This is a search strategy for determining the prevalence of ocular complications in inflammatory rheumatic diseases for the purposes of a meta analysis.
Systemic autoimmune myopathies are a heterogeneous group of rheumatic diseases with progressive skeletal muscle weakness. The relevance of the peripherical neuromuscular electrical stimulation has never applied in the patients with systemic autoimmune myopathies. Therefore, the main objective of the present prospective, randomized, investigator-blind, placebo-controlled study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the application of an acute peripherical neuromuscular electrical stimulation session in patients with systemic autoimmune myopathies.
A retrospective study evaluating the characteristics of tuberculosis infection in patients of rheumatic disease.
Assessment of disease activity in Rheumatoid Arthritis and Systemic lupus patients related to muscle performance, fatigue and blood parameters
The main objective of this trial is to test the hypothesis that abatacept can reduce the progression of rheumatoid arthritis in ACPA+ or RF+ patients with palindromic rheumatism compared with patients treated with hydroxychloroquine.
