Highlights in Rheumatology

Increased prevalence of osteoporosis in morbidly obese

As reported in the International Journal of Clinical Practice, while there is a decreased prevalence of osteoporosis up to a BMI of 40 kg/m2, the prevalence of osteoporosis increases in patients with a BMI > 40 kg/m2, which is thought to be due to decreased weight-bearing exercise.

Mortality increased in juvenile-onset SLE

As reported in Rheumatology, juvenile-onset SLE is associated with increased lupus nephritis, hemolytic anemia, and mortality compared to adult-onset SLE.

FCGR3B loss increases susceptibility to SLE and LN

As reported in the International Journal of Rheumatic Diseases, a meta-analysis of 6 studies has shown that a loss of FCGR3B copy number is associated with increased susceptibility to SLE (OR=1.77) and lupus nephritis (OR=2.02).
