Deficient spontaneous in vitro apoptosis and increased tmTNF reverse signaling-induced apoptosis of monocytes predict suboptimal therapeutic response of rheumatoid arthritis to TNF inhibition

2016-07-13T08:34:25+01:00 2014-1-20|Categories: Artrite Reumatóide|

Abstract Introduction: In vitro apoptosis of peripheral monocytes in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is disturbed and influenced by cytokine production and transmembrane TNF (tmTNF) reverse signaling. The goal of the study was the analysis of the predictive value of the rate of in vitro apoptosis for the therapeutic response to anti-TNF treatment. Methods: Spontaneous and tmTNF reverse signaling-induced apoptosis [...]

Towards the elucidation of the true impact of adipocytokines on cardiovascular risk in rheumatoid arthritis

2016-10-16T12:02:12+01:00 2014-1-20|Categories: Artrite Reumatóide|

Abstract Adipo(cyto)kines are mostly produced by adipose tissue and orchestrate the adverse impact of excess adiposity on cardiovascular risk. Adipokines also contribute importantly to the pathophysiology of rheumatoid arthritis. Congruent with data reported in previous investigations, Kang and colleagues report in this issue of Arthritis Research & Therapy that adipokine concentrations are further associated with metabolic risk and [...]
