11/01/2014 - "Although anti-TNF-α agents have been proven effective in controlling joint damage and systemic inflammation, controversy remains about the effect of these drugs on the lipid profile; therefore, the aim of our study was to investigate the effect of anti-TNF-α treatment, in combination with disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and corticosteroid therapy, on the lipid profile of patients with active RA. "
12/01/2003 - "Despite considerable improvement in inflammation and function scores, only 31 (26%) patients were in remission at 1 yr with 20 (21%) in remission at 2 yr. There was a low rate of DMARD-free remission [14 (12%) at 1 yr and 11 (11%) at 2 yr]. "
01/01/2005 - "The report assesses the efficacy of TNF-α-antagonists to down-regulate inflammation, improve functional status and prevent joint damage in RA with particular regard to the following indications: Treatment of severe, refractory and ongoing disease activity despite adequate use of conventional antirheumatic agents; and treatment of early RA before conventional treatment failure has been demonstrated. "
05/01/1989 - "We believe that the multiple analysis of APR levels during the course of inflammation may help to distinguish between and elucidate the mechanisms of action, of antiinflammatory and antirheumatic drugs."
06/01/2004 - "Patients with early RA were enrolled into 3 separate studies in 1983-85 (n = 58; Cohort A), 1988-89 (n = 77; Cohort B), and 1995-96 (n = 62; Cohort C) at one rheumatology center; all were subsequently treated actively with disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs according to the "sawtooth strategy" to control inflammation, and monitored regularly to collect data for evaluation of longterm outcome. "
4. Necrosis
10/22/2009 - "Clinical studies with these agents have demonstrated that they are effective in RA patients with moderate to active disease, who have not responded to treatment with at least one DMARD and/or tumour necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitor. "
03/01/2015 - "The study included 63 consecutive PsA patients and 4 Pso patients (mean age 50.1, 37 females, 30 males, 55.2% treated with tumour necrosis factor alpha blockers [TNF-α], 31.3% on disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs [DMARDs]) and 30 healthy controls. "
12/01/2009 - "The analyses were performed in two cohorts of patients with AS: (1) the NOR-DMARD database which includes patients starting on a disease-modifying antirheumatic drug or tumour necrosis factor (TNF) blocker and (2) patients participating in double-blind placebo controlled randomised clinical trials with TNF blockers in four centres. "
01/01/2015 - "Patients were allowed background disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs and previously discontinued ≥1 tumour necrosis factor α inhibitors for lack of efficacy/intolerance. "
04/01/2014 - "Radiographic progression was analysed in 9731 radiograph sets from 2681 patients in crude longitudinal regression models and after adjusting for potential confounding factors, including the clinical disease activity score with the 28-joint count for tender and swollen joints and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (DAS28ESR) or the clinical disease activity index (cDAI), synthetic antirheumatic drugs and antitumour necrosis factor (TNF) therapy.
