Home-administered pre-surgical psychological intervention for knee osteoarthritis (HAPPiKNEES): study protocol for a randomised controlled trial.
Background: Knee replacement surgery reduces pain for many people with osteoarthritis (OA). However, surgical outcomes are partly dependent on patients' moods, and those with depression or anxiety have worse outcomes. ...
Interpretation of 28-Joint Disease Activity Score and its Components in the Assessment of Inflammatory and Non-Inflammatory Aspects of Rheumatoid Arthritis
Background: The 28-joint DAS with ESR (DAS28-ESR) is used as a measure of inflammatory disease activity in RA. However, pain and non-inflammatory mechanisms (e.g. central sensitisation) might confound the DAS28 by modulating ...
Discordant inflammation and pain in early and established rheumatoid arthritis: Latent Class Analysis of Early Rheumatoid Arthritis Network and British Society for Rheumatology Biologics Register data.
(McWilliams, D. F. et al. (2016) ‘Discordant inflammation and pain in early and established rheumatoid arthritis: Latent Class Analysis of Early Rheumatoid Arthritis Network and British Society for Rheumatology Biologics Register data’, Arthritis Research & Therapy, 18, p. 295., 2016-12-13)
ACKGROUND: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) disease activity is often measured using the 28-joint Disease Activity Score (DAS28). We aimed to identify and independently verify subgroups of people with RA that may be discordant ...
Association between rheumatoid arthritis disease activity, progression of functional limitation and long-term risk of orthopaedic surgery: Combined analysis of two prospective cohorts supports EULAR treat to target DAS thresholds.
bjectives: To examine the association between disease activity in early rheumatoid arthritis (RA), functional limitation and long-term orthopaedic episodes. Methods: Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) disability scores ...
Factors predicting pain and early discontinuation of tumour necrosis factor-alpha-inhibitors in people with rheumatoid arthritis: results from the British society for rheumatology biologics register.
BACKGROUND: We examined pain levels in 2 cohorts assembled from the British Society for Rheumatology Biologics Register (BSRBR), and investigated which factors predicted Bodily Pain scores and discontinuation of ...
Erosive and osteoarthritic structural progression in early rheumatoid arthritis.
Objectives. To investigate factors associated with joint damage in early RA, and how comorbid OA might influence patient assessment and outcomes. Methods. Baseline radiographs of hands and feet from 512 participants in the ...
