Highlights in Rheumatology

Low vitamin D associated with statin-induced myalgia

As reported in Clinical Therapeutics, of 450 patients prescribed high-dose simvastatin (80 mg qd) for dyslipidemia, 11.1% complained of myalgias. The vitamin D level was lower in patients with myalgias than patients without myalgias (26.2 vs. 36.3 ng/mL).

Fluvastatin improves pro-inflammatory and pro-thrombotic markers in aPL-positive patients

As reported in the Annals of Rheumatic Diseases, treatment of persistent aPL-positive patients with fluvastatin (40 mg qd x 3 months) improved pro-inflammatory and pro-thrombotic markers (IL1-β, VEGF, TNF-α, IP10, sCD40L, and sTF).

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).
