1. Therapeutic options in autoimmune inflammatory myopathies (dermatomyositis, polymyositis, inclusion body myositis).
Match Strength: 8.197

Polymyositis, dermatomyositis, and inclusion body myositis are idiopathic inflammatory myopathies of unknown etiology with autoimmune pathogenesis. For choosing an individual and efficient therapy, diagnostic assignment is an important factor. Therapeutic options in dermatomyositis and polymyositis include corticosteroids and immunosuppressives. Intravenous immunoglobulins are only needed in special cases. In inclusion body myositis, corticosteroids and immunosuppressives are not successful. At the moment intravenous immunoglobulins are the only therapeutic possibility ... Read More »

2. Composition of calcifications in children with juvenile dermatomyositis: association with chronic cutaneous inflammation.
Match Strength: 5.307

OBJECTIVE: Calcific deposits develop in 20-40% of children with juvenile dermatomyositis (juvenile DM), contributing to disease morbidity and mortality. This study was undertaken to define the structure and composition of these deposits and to characterize their association with chronic inflammation. METHODS: We examined calcific deposits from 5 children with juvenile DM (2 boys and 3 girls). The crystal structure and mineral content of the deposits was analyzed by x-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, and imaging. The protein content of the deposits, following ... Read More »

3. Epidemiology of neuroimmunological diseases.
Match Strength: 4.839

This review gives an overview of various neuroimmunological diseases in terms of incidence and prevalence rates, age and sex distribution, and the frequency of subtypes, if applicable. The disorders selected for review are inflammatory muscle disorders (polymyositis, dermatomyositis and inclusion body myositis), myasthenia gravis, immune-mediated polyneuropathies (Guillain-Barre syndrome, chronic polyneuritis and vasculitic neuropathies), and multiple sclerosis ... Read More »

4. Basic principles of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) treatment.
Match Strength: 3.831

The original rationale for the therapeutic application of immunoglobulins was prevention and treatment of infectious diseases. With the description of agammaglobulinemia, substitution therapy became the primary indication for the use of immunoglobulins. Limitations and side effects of the intramuscular administration of immunoglobulins led to the development of preparations for intravenous use (IVIg). In the early 1980s an immunomodulatory effect of IVIg was described. Since then, the efficacy of IVIg has been established in controlled trials for diseases like idiopathic thrombocytopenic ... Read More »

5. Epidemiology of connective tissue disorders.
Match Strength: 3.634

The reported prevalence and incidence of connective tissue disorders are quite variable, depending on differences in study methodology. Most important differences are the study duration, the classification criteria used for diagnosis and the country in which the study was undertaken. Sjogren's syndrome has the highest prevalence ranging between 0.5 and 3% of a given population. The prevalence of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is estimated between 15 and 50 per 100 000 individuals, with a female:male ratio of 6-10:1 in the age group between 15 and 40 yrs. The prevalence of systemic ... Read More »

6. Nailfold capillaroscopy is useful for the diagnosis and follow-up of autoimmune rheumatic diseases. A future tool for the analysis of microvascular heart involvement?
Match Strength: 2.644

Raynaud's phenomenon (RP) represents the most frequent clinical aspect of cardio/microvascular involvement and is a key feature of several autoimmune rheumatic diseases. Moreover, RP is associated in a statistically significant manner with many coronary diseases. In normal conditions or in primary RP (excluding during the cold-exposure test), the normal nailfold capillaroscopic pattern shows a regular disposition of the capillary loops along with the nailbed. On the contrary, in subjects suffering from secondary RP, one or more alterations of the capillaroscopic findings should alert the ... Read More »
