Pain mechanisms in rheumatoid arthritis
Understanding of the causes and underlying mechanisms of pain in people with RA is rapidly changing. With the advent of more effective disease modifying drugs, joint inflammation is becoming a more treatable cause of pain, ...
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 ...
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 ...
Discrete Trajectories of Resolving and Persistent Pain in People With Rheumatoid Arthritis Despite Undergoing Treatment for Inflammation: Results From Three UK Cohorts.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an example of human chronic inflammatory pain. Modern treatments suppress inflammation, yet pain remains a major problem for many people with RA. We hypothesized that discrete RA subgroups might ...
A cross-sectional study of pain sensitivity, disease-activity assessment, mental health, and fibromyalgia status in rheumatoid arthritis.
INTRODUCTION: Pain remains the most important problem for people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Active inflammatory disease contributes to pain, but pain due to non-inflammatory mechanisms can confound the assessment ...
