Background Corticosteroid injection for knee osteoarthritis is limited by its modest duration of treatment effect. The liposome formulation of dexamethasone sodium phosphate (TLC599) was developed for the sustained relief of osteoarthritis pain. This clinical study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of TLC599 at two dose levels in pa...

Background Previous study revealed proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) have an effect on gut microbiota. Alteration of the microbiome causes changes of the host immune system and then induces the development of autoimmune diseases (ADs). This study aimed to explore the possible association between PPIs use and ADs. Methods This study was conducted using...

Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1-induced protein 1 (MCPIP1) is rapidly produced under proinflammatory stimuli, thereby feeding back to downregulate excessive inflammation. In this study, we used the stable, inducible expressions of wild-type (WT) MCPIP1 and an MCPIP1-D141N mutant in T-REx-293 cells by means of a tetracycline on (Tet-on) system. W...

Background/purpose: To evaluate the therapeutic responsiveness of office-based salivary gland ductal irrigation in patients with chronic sialoadenitis. Methods: Between August 2017 and April 2019, 55 patients comprising the following three disease groups were enrolled: Sjogren's syndrome: 39 patients; postradiotherapy sialoadenitis: ten patients...

Purpose Patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) have a higher risk of Behçet’s disease (BD) and Sjögren syndrome (SS). However, the bidirectional relationship between these autoimmune diseases and OSA is unclear. We investigated the relationship between autoimmune diseases (SS and BD) and OSA. Methods SS and BD patients were identified through...

The data concerning the association between dengue viruses (DV) infection and autoimmune diseases (ADs) remain unclear and are scarce. This nationwide population-based cohort study assessed the risk of ADs among patients with DV infection. We analyzed Taiwanese medical data from the Registry of the National Notifiable Disease Reporting System of Ta...

Objectives The data concerning the association between Tx and ADs remain unclear and are scarce. This study was undertaken to investigate whether people with Tx are more likely to develop ADs, compared to those without Tx. Methods Individuals who received Tx between 2002 and 2015 were identified and matched on age and sex with individuals without...

Aim: To evaluate feasibility of establishing a clinically applicable reference value through those unaffected salivary gland on sialoscintigraphic data obtained from patients presented with obstructive sialadenitis affected a single gland. Materials and methods: Ninety-one patients suffered from single salivary gland swelling, pain/tenderness an...

Objective We studied the risk of dementia in patients with primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS) using a nationwide, population‐based cohort in Taiwan. Methods Our study analyzed the medical data of the Taiwanese population from 2000 to 2014. We identified 17,072 patients with pSS and 68,270 controls. Dementia risk was analyzed using a Cox proportional...

Background: Gout, a common medical condition that causes pain, can be treated by painkillers and anti-inflammatories. Indometacin and etoricoxib are two such drugs. However, no synthesized evidence exists comparing etoricoxib with indometacin in treating patients with gout. Methods: We searched PubMed, Embase, Ovid MEDLINE, Web of Science, ScienceD...
Article
Objectives: Previous studies have shown myasthenia gravis (MG) and autoimmune rheumatic diseases (ARDs) share common pathogenetic mechanisms. Therefore, the present study investigated the possible relationship between MG and ARDs. Methods: We analysed Taiwanese medical data from the Registry of Catastrophic Illness and identified patients with M...

Background: Only a few studies have investigated the affect of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) on the risk of cerebrovascular disease (CVD)/coronary artery disease (CAD) in young adults. This study, therefore, examined the association between RA and the risk of CVD/CAD in young adults and the interaction effects between cardiovascular risk factors and R...

Monocyte chemotactic protein induced protein 3 (MCPIP3) belongs to the Cys–Cys–Cys–His (CCCH)-zinc finger protein family and contains a highly conserved CCCH-zinc finger domain and a Nedd4-BP1 YacP nuclease (NYN) domain. Previous studies showed that MCPIP3 inhibits the expression of proinflammatory genes, such as vascular cell adhesion molecule (VC...

ZFP36 family members include ZFP36, ZFP36L1, and ZFP36L2, which belong to CCCH-type zinc finger proteins with two tandem zinc finger (TZF) regions. Whether ZFP36L1 and ZFP36L2 have antiproliferative activities similar to that of ZFP36 is unclear. In this study, when ZFP36L1 or ZFP36L2 was overexpressed in T-REx-293 cells, cell proliferation was dra...

Objective Dementia is a common neurological disease that substantially affects public health. A previous study revealed that dementia occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the cells of the brain, indicating that dementia may be similar to autoimmune rheumatic diseases (ARDs). In the current retrospective cohort study, we focused on middle-ag...
Article
Backgrounds: In autoimmune rheumatic diseases (ARDs), the levels of inflammatory mediators are increased and microglia may be activated, resulting in an inflammatory state and the degeneration of dopaminergic neurons. We investigated the association between ARDs and Parkinson disease (PD). Methods: We identified ARD patients through the Taiwan Nati...

Objective Studies on the risk of acute pancreatitis in patients with primary Sjogren’s syndrome (pSS) are limited. We evaluated the effects of pSS on the risk of acute pancreatitis in a nationwide, population-based cohort in Taiwan. Study design Population-based retrospective cohort study. Setting We studied the claims data of the >97% Taiwan pop...

Studies on the clinical efficacy of influenza vaccination on patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) are scant. The present study compared the incidence of hospitalization, morbidity, and mortality in patients with SLE between cohorts with and without influenza vaccination. We used the Taiwan’s insurance claims data between 2001 and 2012 f...

The study was conducted to determine whether patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are at increased risk of acute pancreatitis compared with those without RA and to determine if the risk of acute pancreatitis varied by anti-RA drug use. We used the large population-based dataset from the National Health Insurance (NHI) program in Taiwan to conduc...

Nano-structured Ag and Au with well-defined localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) are most popularly employed in surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS)-related studies. Ag possesses the highest molar extinction coefficient in metals, resulting in a stronger SERS effect than that of Au. However, compared to Au, the serious decay of SERS enhan...

Diseases associated with calcium-containing crystal deposition can lead to local bone erosion. We aimed to determine whether calcium-containing crystal-hydroxyapatite, β-tricalcium phosphate and CPPD enhanced osteoclastogenesis and to define underlying mechanisms of action. Osteoclastogenesis was studied by culturing murine RAW 264.7 osteoclast pre...
