Highlights in Rheumatology

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).

Metacarpal DXR-BMD predicts 1-y RA progression

As reported in the Annals of Rheumatic Diseases, a metacarpal BMD determination after 4 months of anti-RA treatment is an independent predictor of 1-y progression in patients without baseline bone erosions (OR=2.0). For patients with baseline erosions, early metacarpal BMD loss is predictive of 1-y progression (OR=1.5).

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.
