Induction of Regulatory t Cells by Low Dose il2 in Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases

Protocol: TRANSREG is a multicentric, uncontrolled, open-label study, comparing biological and clinical responses to the administration of low doses IL2 across 14 selected pathologies: rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, systemic lupus erythematosus, psoriasis, Behcet's disease, Wegener's granulomatosis, Takayasu's disease, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, autoimmune hepatitis, sclerosing cholangitis, Gougerot-sjgren, Systemic Sclerosis and ...

Phase

Physical Training Program in Ankylosing Spondylitis

AS is a chronic inflammatory rheumatic disorder affecting spine, peripheral joints and entheses. Patients undergo pain, stiffness and reduced mobility of spine and joints. Patients experience limitations in physical activities and reduced quality of life. Some uncontrolled studies reported benefits of physical activity in patients with AS. The aim of ...

Phenomics in Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases

The family of inflammatory/autoimmune systemic diseases (IAD) represents a large group of human diseases. For most if not all of these IAD, the pathophysiological processes or exact causes remain poorly understood. Progresses in molecular understanding of these IAD have led to realize that these are not two distinct categories of ...

The Norwegian Drug Monitoring Study

Infliximab and other TNF-inhibitors have revolutionised the treatment of several immunological inflammatory diseases. Still, more than half of the patients either do not respond sufficiently to infliximab therapy or loose efficacy over time. The large individual variation in the serum drug concentrations on standard doses and the development of anti-drug ...

Electroacupuncture for Relieving Pain in Ankylosing Spondylitis

Background: Ankylosing spondylitis imposes burdens on individuals and society that AS costs 3 times higher than general population. Conventional approaches for AS have their limitation. Previous studies demonstrated acupuncture has significant therapeutic effects for AS in diminishing joint pain, enhancing functional disorders and modifying spinal deformity. Although acupuncture is effective ...

WEB-Based Physiotherapy for People With Axial Spondyloarthritis

Background and Rationale Axial spondyloarthritis (axial SpA) is an inflammatory arthritis characterised by inflammatory back pain and includes both ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and non-radiographic axial SpA. Axial SpA is associated with pain and stiffness in the spine and/or sacroiliac joints, reduced spinal mobility, fatigue, reduced physical activity, psychological consequences such ...

Phase N/A

Biomarkers Identification of Anti-tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) Agent's Efficacy in Ankylosing Spondylitis Patients

To identify new candidate genes and proteins that are differentially expressed in responders' vs non-responders to anti-TNF alpha therapy at the several time points the investigators will use the transcriptomic and proteomic analyses. Demonstrate a link between gene expression and protein markers regarding prediction to anti-TNF alpha therapy efficacy.

Phase

Adalimumab in Alleviating Inflammation in Patients With Axial Spondyloarthritis

Axial spondyloarthritis is an inflammatory rheumatic disease mainly affecting joints in the spine and the sacroiliac joints. Inflammatory pathways are likely the central link from axial spondyloarthritis to the known increased risk of atherosclerotic morbidity. Positron emission tomography (PET) is the most sensitive method to detect inflammatory foci in clinical ...

Phase

Ankylosing Spondylitis and Antiphospholipid Antibodies

Methods Experimental design: longitudinal study prospective in a single center. The Ankylosing Spondylitis Assesment Study (ASAS) criteria are: (1) age <45 years, back pain 3 months, sacroiliitis on imaging and 1 associated minor criterion, or (2) HLA B27 positive and 2 minor criteria. Minor criteria are: inflammatory back pain, arthritis, ...

Phase N/A

AL-2 MP-1 (Polyimide) Acetabular Liner

The procedure involves removal of the diseased parts of the joint, that is the damaged cartilage and adjacent bone, and replacing them with artificial parts which closely resemble in structure and/or function the removed native parts. The artificial parts fit onto the reshaped bone and are fixed either with bone ...
