  1. 1. Interstitial lung disease in polymyositis and dermatomyositis

    Författare :Maryam Fathi; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; dermatomyositis; polymyositis; interstitial lung disease;

    Sammanfattning : Polymyositis and dermatomyositis are rare disease entities affecting skeletal muscle and other organs such as the lungs. Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is increasingly recognized as a serious complication of poly-/dermatomyositis. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Polymyositis And Dermatomyositis - Inflammation, Muscle Structure & Immunosuppressive Treatment

    Författare :Ingela Loell; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Polymyositis and dermatomyositis are chronic, inflammatory disorders characterized by muscle weakness, low muscle endurance and by inflammation in skeletal muscle tissues. The pathogenesis is not completely understood and several mechanisms are believed to be involved. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Exercise and outcome measures in patients with polymyositis and dermatomyositis

    Författare :Helene Alexanderson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Inflammatory myopathies; exercise; outcome measures; disability;

    Sammanfattning : Polymyositis (PM) and dermatomyositis (DM) are chronic idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM) which are clinically characterized by symmetrical proximal muscle weakness, fatigue, myalgia and extra- muscular involvement. Muscle impairment is the most significant feature of PM and DM with characteristic infiltrates of mononuclear inflammatory cells in muscle biopsies, elevated inflammatory parameters in serum and characteristic EMG changes, which separate these disorders from neurologic disorders and also fibromyalgia.

  4. 4. Hand function, activity limitation and health-related quality of life in patients with polymyositis and dermatomyositis

    Författare :Malin Regardt; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Polymyositis (PM) and dermatomyositis (DM) are rare idiopathic inflammatory myopathies. Common clinical features are proximal muscle weakness and reduced muscle endurance, which can lead to activity limitation and reduced healthrelated quality of life (HRQoL). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Studies of immunopathogenic mechanisms and treatment of chronic, inflammatory myopathies, myositis

    Författare :Maryam Dastmalchi; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; 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
