Our aim in this study is to translate the Inflammatory Arthritis Facilitators and Barriers to Physical Activity (IFAB) Questionnaire which was developed to determine the factors that facilitate and prevent individuals for physical activity for patients with inflammatory arthritis into Turkish language. Also, our aim is to evaluate the validity and reliability of the IFAB Questionnaire in the Turkish population, and to perform a cultural adaptation if necessary at the same time. Determining the factors that facilitate and prevent individuals for physical activity interventions with rheumatic diseases and then designing physical activity programs considering these factors may play an important role in reducing the symptoms caused by the disease and increasing their quality of life.
The investigators had observed that baricitinib was effective and safe in active pSS patients in a pilot study. So the investigators plan to conduct a multi-center, prospective, open-label, randomized study to compare the efficacy of baricitinib + hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) with HCQ alone in active pSS patients. The participants will be randomized (1:2) to receive HCQ (200mg twice a day) or baricitinib (4mg per day) + HCQ (200mg twice a day) until week 24. The primary endpoint is the ESSDAI and ESSPRI response (define as an improvement of ESSDAI at least three points, and ESSPRI at least one point or 15%) at 12 weeks. According to an expected response rate of 70% in baricitinib + HCQ group and 30% in HCQ group, the investigators will involve approximately 87 participants (29:58) with 20% drop out rate. The investigators will switch HCQ to baricitinib + HCQ if the participants has no response at 12 weeks. The investigators hypothesized that baricitinib was effective and safe in active pSS patients.
Sarcopenia is a progressive condition characterized by decline in muscle strength and muscle mass. Although the mechanism of sarcopenia has not been fully elucidated, it may be caused by protein-poor diet, vitamin D deficiency, hormonal changes, increase in inflammatory cytokine level and oxidative stress. For this reason, it is thought that determining the prevalence of sarcopenia in rheumatological diseases with chronic inflammation and protecting patients from possible comorbidities with appropriate interventions may be an important factor in maintaining and improving the functional levels and quality of life of patients. The aim of our study was to investigate the prevalence and its associated factors of sarcopenia in individuals with primary Sjögren's Syndrome.
Sjögren's syndrome (pSS) is an autoimmune disorder affecting mainly the exocrine glands.this lead to dryness of the main mucosal surface ,such as the mouth ,eye,skin nose,pharynx,larynx and vagina . The history of the disease is characterized by a slowly progression of sicca symptoms and fatigue; however, a subset of patients would experience extra glandular activity. Lipid mediators derived from polyunsaturated fatty acids, related to inflammation and immune response regulation. In this sense, the polyunsaturated fatty acids omega-3 (ω-3 FA) have been associated with several illnesses such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and autoimmune diseases and their balance at the cellular membranes can result in an anti-inflammatory .
This study is a basket trial designed to establish safety, tolerability and efficacy of MHV370 in Sjögren's Syndrome (SjS) and Mixed Connective Tissue Disease (MCTD).
A multi-center, prospective, open-label, randomized controlled study of efficacy and safety of Iguratimod in patients with Primary Sjögren's syndrome
Patients with pSS seen in the Division of Rheumatology, the second affiliated hospital of Zhejiang University, School of Medicine (SAHZU) during January 2016 to July 2018, were retrospectively reviewed. Characteristics were analyzed.
Primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS) is a chronic, systemic autoimmune disease characterized by disorders of the lacrimal and salivary glands. The disease can be seen in systemic involvement by affecting any organ. It may result in skin, lung and kidney involvement as well as symptoms such as vasculitis and neuropathy. Patients with PSS often report fatigue as an important symptom to manage. Fatigue, defined as an overwhelming feeling of fatigue, lack of energy, and exhaustion, is associated with poor health and functional impairment. Fatigue is a common symptom of pSS. This symptom is the most important cause of loss of function in patients. It is thought that as a result of fatigue in pSS, decrease in mental health related to physical activity level and quality of life in patients, sleep problems, depression and loss of ability to work. Several mechanisms have been proposed to explain the occurrence of fatigue among sjogren patients, but its underlying physiological basis has not been adequately defined. Therefore, it is a complex, multifaceted and poorly understood symptom. In population-based studies, approximately 20% of healthy adults report experiencing fatigue, and this rate rises to 60%-70% among patients with autoimmune disorders. Fatigue is the most common non-exocrine symptom in pSS, and the prevalence of fatigue disability among patients with pSS has been reported to be approximately 70%.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of nipocalimab in participants with primary Sjogren's syndrome (pSS) versus placebo.
Primary Sjögren's Syndrome (PSS) is a chronic autoimmune inflammatory disease primarily involving the salivary and lacrimal glands. Few data exist regarding survival and success rate of dental implants in patients with PSS. Although a previous study suggest lower success rate for dental implants we hypothesize that dental implants have similar survival and success rate in PSS as healthy controls. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the long-term survival and success rate of dental implants in patients with PSS compared to the healthy controls.
