A novel inflammatory biomarker, GlycA, associates with disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis and cardio-metabolic risk in BMI-matched controls.
(Arthritis Res Ther, 2016-04-12)
BACKGROUND: RA and CVD both have inflammation as part of the underlying biology. Our objective was to explore the relationships of GlycA, a measure of glycosylated acute phase proteins, with inflammation and cardiometabolic ...
Amino acid racemization reveals differential protein turnover in osteoarthritic articular and meniscal cartilages.
(Arthritis Res Ther, 2009)
INTRODUCTION: Certain amino acids within proteins have been reported to change from the L form to the D form over time. This process is known as racemization and is most likely to occur in long-lived low-turnover tissues ...
Caloric restriction alters the metabolic response to a mixed-meal: results from a randomized, controlled trial.
(PLoS One, 2012)
OBJECTIVES: To determine if caloric restriction (CR) would cause changes in plasma metabolic intermediates in response to a mixed meal, suggestive of changes in the capacity to adapt fuel oxidation to fuel availability or ...
Colchicine effectiveness in symptom and inflammation modification in knee osteoarthritis (COLKOA): study protocol for a randomized controlled trial.
BACKGROUND: Despite the high prevalence and global impact of knee osteoarthritis (KOA), current treatments are palliative. No disease modifying anti-osteoarthritic drug (DMOAD) has been approved. We recently demonstrated ...
Radiographic severity of knee osteoarthritis is conditional on interleukin 1 receptor antagonist gene variations.
(Ann Rheum Dis, 2010-05)
BACKGROUND: A lack of biomarkers that identify patients at risk for severe osteoarthritis (OA) complicates development of disease-modifying OA drugs. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether inflammatory genetic markers could stratify ...
