Rituximab Versus Cyclophosphamide in Connective Tissue Disease-ILD

Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is characterised by inflammation and scarring of the lung and is the leading cause of death in patients with systemic sclerosis, and contributes significantly to morbidity and mortality in many other connective tissue diseases (CTDs) such as polymyositis/dermatomyositis and mixed connective tissue disease. When ILD is ...

Abatacept for the Treatment of Myositis-associated Interstitial Lung Disease

This is a proof of concept study to evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of ABT in Syn-ILD in a multi-center randomized, placebo-controlled 6-month (24-week) pilot study.

Phase

Effects of High-intensity Interval Training (HIIT) in Recent Onset Polymyositis and Dermatomyositis

Patients randomized to the HIIT protocol will train three days a week for 12 weeks. Before exercise start participants will rate self-reported pain and fatigue on a visual analogue scale and describe in own words information about possible changes in medication dose, any side effects from medication as well as ...

Prognosis and Treatment of Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infections: A Prospective Cohort Study

Introduction Necrotizing soft-tissue infections (NSTI) are among the most serious and deadly infections known. They are characterized by rapidly progressing soft-tissue inflammation with necrosis and can quickly cause multiple organ failure and death. Mortality has been shown to be 25-35 %, with survivors coping with amputations and prolonged rehabilitation. Currently, ...

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 ...

Tocilizumab in the Treatment of Refractory Polymyositis and Dermatomyositis

Although there are several studies supporting the efficacy of tocilizumab (TCZ) in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and systemic onset juvenile idiopathic arthritis, it's use in other autoimmune disorders has also been propose. A consensus statement on blocking the effects of IL-6 in RA and other autoimmune conditions has been recently published. ...

Belimumab in Idiopathic Inflammatory Myositis

Adults with refractory IIM will be enrolled. IIM is defined as Dermatomyositis (DM) or Polymyositis (PM), meeting the Bohan & Peter (1975) diagnostic criteria for definite or probable DM or PM. Refractory IIM is defined as chronic active IIM with a history of inadequate response or intolerance to three months ...
