  1. 1. Measure for measure. Outcome assessment of arthritis treatment in clinical practice

    Detta är en avhandling från Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Författare :Anders Gülfe; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TNF blockade; rheumatoid arthritis; utility; treatment continuation; agreement; health related quality of life; Outcome; response; psoriatic arthritis; spondyloarthritis; disease activity; observational study;

    Sammanfattning : Objective: To investigate (i) the performance and agreement between various activity indices and response criteria in TNF-blockade of RA; (ii) the predictive ability of different response criteria and disease activity states regarding continuation of anti-TNF treatment of RA; (iii) Euro-QoL-5-dimensions utility development during TNF blockade of RA, PsA and SpA. Also, (iv) to develop a simple, utility-based outcome measure, the number needed to treat per quality adjusted life year gained (NNQ) and apply it in RA, PsA and SpA patients on anti-TNF treatment.

    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies; polymyositis; dermatomyositis; IVIg; infliximab treatment; physical training; muscle biopsy;

    Sammanfattning : p>Polymyosit (PM), dermatomyositis (DM) and sporadic inclusion body myositis (sIBM) are chronic inflammatory myopathies which are characterized by muscle weakness, fatigue and extra-muscular involvement. Mononuclear inflammatory cells are typically found in muscle tissue. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Background - Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), are lifelong conditions characterized by abdominal pain, bloody diarrhea and fatigue. The incidence and prevalence are increasing worldwide, with approximately 10-20% of all IBD cases diagnosed during childhood. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Treatment of arthritis with tumour necrosis factor antagonists. Clinical, immunological and biochemical aspects

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Rheumatology, Lund University

    Författare :Meliha C Kapetanovic; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Skelett; muskelsystem; reumatologi; Skeleton; muscle system; rheumatology locomotion; ANA; infusion reaction; influenza vaccination; pneumococcal vaccination; COMP; TNF antagonists; spondylarthropathies; arthritis; rheumatoid arthritis;

    Sammanfattning : Abstract The treatment of arthritis has undergone a dramatic change since biological agents targeting specific mediators of the disease process have been introduced. Tumour necrosis factor (TNF) antagonists have been shown to reduce signs and symptoms of disease and to retard the development of tissue damage in the majority of patients. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Biologocal thearpies - treatment outcome in RA-patients : Quality of life, health economy and pharmacotherapy

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine

    Författare :Jenny Riazzoli; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory systemic autoimmune disorder characterized by symmetric inflammation of synovial joints, leading to progressive erosion of cartilage and bone. The impact of the disease is wide, not only resulting in decreased quality of life (QoL), but also a loss of productivity and an increase in healthcare costs The aim of this thesis was to study the impact of treatment with tumour necrosis factor- alpha inhibitors (TNF-inhibitors) on patients with RA in terms of risk for adverse events, impact on work-force ability and the possibility to predict treatment outcome from early patient reported data.
