Fifty-one WG patients with relapses under MTX (n=36) or LEF (n=15) maintenance monotherapy were identified. They were subsequently treated with MTX+LEF to reintroduce remission. Mean follow-up was 26.0 (3-93) months. MTX+LEF controlled relapsing WG in 43/51 (84%) patients: 28/51 achieved a Birmingham Vasculitis activity index (BVAS)=0 and 15/51 a response (BVAS reduction of > = or). 8/51 patients did not respond to MTX+LEF (<50% BVAS reduction) and were switched to cyclophosphamide and/or a biological for ongoing disease activity. Follow up showed a sustained remission (BVAS=0 >3 months) in 14/51 patients, a minor relapse in 27/51, and a major relapse in 2/51 (subsequently switched to cyclophosphamide). Fifty adverse effects were observed. MTX+LEF therapy was discontinued in 18/51 patients because of adverse effects (main causes: gastro-intestinal complaints, hypertension, infections).

arava user reviews

Leflunomide(Arava) is a novel immunomodulatory drug, the primary action of which is inhibition of de-novo pyrimidine synthesis by selective inhibition of dihydro-orotate dehydrogenase. It has been shown that leflunomide is effective in treating active rheumatoid arthritis(RA) in a placebo-controlled phase II study. Subsequent multinational, randomized, controlled phase III clinical trials demonstrated that leflunomide is as effective and safe as methotrexate and sulfasalazine in treatment of RA. Frequently reported adverse effects included diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, skin rash, reversible alopecia, and transient lever enzyme elevations. However, accumulating concerns about its toxic effects, especially hepatotoxicity, have been raised recently. In addition, rheumatologists should be aware that leflunomide has a much longer half life than any other disease modifying antirheumatic drug.

The review is based on a MEDLINE (PubMed) search of the English-language literature from 1965 to 2005, using the index keywords "rheumatoid arthritis" and "surgery". As co-indexing terms the different disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) as well as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and "glucocorticoids" were used. In addition, citations from retrieved articles were scanned for additional references. Furthermore, because the number of published articles is so limited, relevant abstracts presented at congresses were included in the analysis.

High levels of active MMP-9, COMP and SAA were detected in the sera of the patients with RA prior to the start of the leflunomide therapy compared to normal control sera. A significant reduction of the MMP-9 activity levels was seen after 3 months immunomodulation with leflunomide and was maintained after 6 months (p < 0.01). The degradation marker COMP and the inflammation marker SAA decreased significantly after 6 months (p < 0.04, respectively p < 0.01). There was also an insignificant tendency of MMP-1 reduction in serum after 6 months.

Patients treated with a combination of biologics with leflunomide had significantly higher baseline disease activity than those treated with methotrexate. The highest disease activity was found for patients treated with the combination infliximab/leflunomide. After 36 months, the discontinuation rates were 46.3%, 51.3% and 61.5% for combinations of etanercept, adalimumab and infliximab with methotrexate and 53.4%, 63.1% and 67.1% for combinations with leflunomide, respectively. European League Against Rheumatism response rates after 24 months ranged from 74% to 81% for combinations with methotrexate and 72% to 81% for combinations with leflunomide.

DiHydroOrotate DeHydrogenase [huDHODH] is a therapeutic target for Rheumatoid arthritis [RA]. Leflunomide [A771726] is a widely used synthetic inhibitor against huDHODH. We to find more efficient lead like compounds. A four featured E-Pharmacophore A1D4H6R7 was built based on the inhibitor A771726. This pharmacophore was validated by checking its ability to identify known highly active inhibitors of huDHODH and assigning higher fitness scores to them. A reverse validation was also performed where random 4 featured pharmacophores were built and its efficiency in identifying actives was compared with our E-Pharmacophore. Our Epharmacophore was very efficient, since it passed both validations by picking the known active molecules with high fitness scores. This validated E- pharmacophore was searched against the KEGG phytochemicals subset database. This search resulted in 18 molecules which were subjected to docking with huDHODH. The molecules with docking score greater than that of A771726 were selected. The docking results were further validated using MM/GBSA which gave similar ranking with high binding free energy values. The four molecules 6-Methoxytaxifolin, Rhamnetin, Rhamnazin and Pinoquercetin were taken for explicit 3ns simulation and it was observed that all four molecules had acceptable RMSD values and stable interactions. Thus our study, suggests four phytomolecules that might inhibit huDHODH more efficiently than A771726. Interestingly, some of the obtained hits have already been proven in vitro anti-inflammatory activity which confirms that, the developed E-pharmacophore can be used to identify novel small molecules against inflammatory target, huDHODH.

In population dynamics, inverse density dependence can be manifested by individual fitness traits (component Allee effects), and population-level traits (demographic Allee effects). Cooperatively breeding species are an excellent model for investigating the relative importance of Allee effects, because there is a disproportionately larger benefit to an individual of being part of a large group. As a consequence, larger groups have greater performance than small groups, known as the group Allee effect. Although small populations of cooperative breeders may be prone to all levels of Allee effects, empirical evidence for the existence of a demographic Allee effects is scarce. To determine the extent to which Allee effects are present in a cooperatively breeding species, we used a comprehensive 35-year life history database for cooperatively breeding Arabian babblers (Turdoides squamiceps). Firstly, we confirmed the existence of a component Allee effect by showing that breeding individuals in large groups receive greater benefits than those in small groups; second, we confirmed the existence of group Allee effect by showing that larger groups survive longer. And thirdly, we identified a demographic Allee effect by showing that per capita population growth rate is positively affected by population density. Finally, we found that emigration and immigration rates, although dependent on group size, do not buffer against component and group-level Allee effects becoming a demographic Allee effect. Our finding of the existence of all three levels of Allee effects in a cooperative breeder may have important implications for future research and conservation decisions.

A MEDLINE search (1966-January 2000) was conducted to identify English-language literature available on the pharmacotherapy of RA, focusing on celecoxib, leflunomide, etanercept, and infliximab. These articles, relevant abstracts, and data provided by the manufacturers were used to collect pertinent data.

It is very difficult to predict future treatment modalities especially in diseases like rheumatoid arthritis (RA) with unknown etiology and pathogenesis. In the near future, traditional disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARD) alone, in combination with each other, or together with cyclosporine, FK506, Rapamycin, or Leflunomide, will probably be the main treatment for RA. Currently biological anti-TNFalpha agents like humanized MAb and recombinant TNF-receptor constructs are now launched in the market. This therapy alone, or in combination with methotrexate is very effective in RA patients. There are, however, concerns over increase in serious infections. Autologous stem cell transplantation will probably be used in certain patient with serious autoimmune diseases.

AA amyloidosis was induced in Swiss male mice using amyloid enhancing factor and AgNO(3). Suppression of amyloid formation was studied in comparison to saline, using i.p. injections of several non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents, TNF-α inhibitors, interferon-α, leflunomide and a variety of chemotherapeutic agents, commonly used in the treatment of inflammatory illnesses such as methotrexate, azathioprine, chlorambucil and cyclophosphamide. The degree of splenic amyloid deposition was determined using Congo red staining of smears and a 5 grade scale.

Over a period of 6 months, CEM cell lines developed 4-5-fold resistance to CQ. CQ resistance was associated with the specific overexpression of multidrug resistance-associated protein 1 (MRP-1), an ATP-driven drug efflux pump. This was illustrated by 1) overexpression of MRP-1 by Western blotting and 2) the complete reversal of CQ resistance by the MRP-1 transport inhibitors MK571 and probenecid. Importantly, CQ-resistant CEM cells retained full sensitivity to other DMARDs, including methotrexate, leflunomide, cyclosporin A, and sulfasalazine, but exhibited a high level of cross-resistance (>1,000-fold) to the glucocorticoid dexamethasone. The mechanistic basis for the latter was associated with aberrant signaling via the cAMP-protein kinase A pathway, since the cAMP-inducing agent forskolin reversed dexamethasone resistance. Finally, CQ-resistant CEM cells displayed a markedly reduced capacity to release proinflammatory cytokines (tumor necrosis factor alpha) and chemokines (interleukin-8).

Eotaxin-2/CCL24 and eotaxin-3/CCL26 are CC chemokines and their receptor, CC chemokine receptor 3 is preferentially expressed on eosinophils. It was reported that vascular endothelial cells and dermal fibroblasts produced CCL26. However, the regulation of CCL24 and CCL26 production in keratinocytes has not been well documented. We investigated the expression and production of CCL24 and CCL26 in the human keratinocyte cell line, HaCaT cells. Reverse transcription and polymerase chain reaction was performed using these cells and Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was carried out using supernatant of these cells. The production of CCL24 in HaCaT cells was slightly enhanced by IL-4 and that of CCL26 was strongly enhanced by IL-4 and IL-13. Furthermore, TNF-alpha generated a synergistic effect on IL-4 enhanced CCL26 production. Dexamethasone, IFN-gamma and the p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase inhibitor SB202190 inhibited IL-4 enhanced CCL26 production. IL-4 enhanced production of CCL26 was inhibited by leflunomide and JAK inhibitor 1, but not by JAK3 inhibitor, which indicates that it is mediated by JAK1-STAT6-dependent pathway. This result also strongly suggests the involvement of the type 2 IL-4 receptor in IL-4 enhanced production of CCL26. These results suggest that keratinocytes are involved in the migration of CC chemokine receptor 3 positive cells such as eosinophils in a Th2-dominant situation like atopic dermatitis.

The 3-unsubstituted isoxazole ring in the anti-inflammatory drug leflunomide undergoes a unique N-O bond cleavage to the active alpha-cyanoenol metabolite A771726, which resides in the same oxidation state as the parent. In vitro studies were conducted to characterize drug-metabolizing enzyme(s) responsible for ring opening and to gain insight into the mechanism of ring opening. Under physiological conditions, leflunomide was converted to A771726 in rat and human plasma (rat plasma,t1/2 = 36 min; human plasma, t1/2 = 12 min) and whole blood (rat blood, t1/2 = 59 min; human blood, t1/2 = 43 min). Human serum albumin also catalyzed A771726 formation, albeit at a much slower rate (t1/2 = 110 min). Rat and human liver microsomes also demonstrated NADPH-dependent A771726 formation (human liver microsomes, Vmax = 1797 pmol/min/mg and Km = 274 microM). Leflunomide metabolism in microsomes was sensitive to furafylline treatment, suggesting p4501A2 involvement. 3-Methylleflunomide, which contained a 3-methyl substituent on the isoxazole ring, was resistant to ring opening in base, plasma, blood, and liver microsomes. In microsomes, two monohydroxylated metabolites were formed, and metabolite identification studies established the 3- and the 5-methyl groups on the isoxazole ring as sites of hydroxylation. These results indicate that the C3-H in leflunomide is essential for ring opening. Although A771726 formation in human liver microsomes or recombinant p4501A2 required NADPH, its formation was greatly reduced by oxygen or carbon monoxide, suggesting that the isoxazole ring opening was catalyzed by the p450Fe(II) form of the enzyme. A mechanism for the p450-mediated ring scission is proposed in which the isoxazole ring nitrogen or oxygen coordinates to the reduced form of the heme followed by charge transfer from p450Fe(II) to the C=N bond or deprotonation of the C3-H, which results in a cleavage of the N-O bond.

We undertook this study to evaluate the effects of leflunomide, an oral pyrimidine synthesis inhibitor, on the serum chemokine levels in patients with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who were refractory to treatment with methotrexate (MTX) or did not tolerated MTX treatment. RA patients were supposed to receive leflunomide (100 mg/day loading dose for 3 days followed by 20 mg/day orally for the 12 months). Serum concentrations of RANTES (regulated upon activation, normal T cell expressed and secreted), monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), and interleukin-8 (IL-8) were assessed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay before and after 3, 6, 9, and 12 months of treatment with leflunomide. Three months therapy with leflunomide caused reduction in serum RANTES and MCP-1 (in both cases, p < 0.001) levels. Decrease in the concentration of these chemokines persisted until the end of the study period but was less significant. In the case of IL-8, its serum levels significantly diminished after 6 months of therapy with leflunomide (p < 0.01) and remained stable to the end of the study. Changes in serum chemokine levels were accompanied by significant decrease of disease activity score (DAS; p < 0.001). Prior to the first dose of leflunomide, serum concentrations of studied chemokines correlated with marker of RA activity such as the erythrocyte sedimentation rate and IL-8 level with DAS. Furthermore, we demonstrated significant correlations between serum levels of RANTES, MCP-1, and IL-8. During study period, such associations were far less or not significant. Leflunomide, beside a clinical improvement, reduce serum chemokines concentrations in RA patients. Leflunomide seems to be an effective treatment for RA, alternative to current therapies.

This is the first description of the development of rheumatoid nodules in 3 rheumatoid arthritis patients following leflunomide therapy. The nodules were localized at typical sites with preference of the extensor side of hands and elbow. One nodule examined histologically revealed the typical architecture of RA nodules. In all 3 patients the time of onset of nodulosis was about 6 months after initiating the leflunomide therapy. In all 3 patients leflunomide was clinically efficacious concerning RA: remission or near remission was achieved. Due to the extent of nodulosis, the leflunomide therapy had to be stopped in 2 patients. Progression and acceleration of nodulosis is well known following MTX therapy in RA patients. It is caused by adenosine A1 receptor promotion of multinucleated giant cell formation by human monocytes. Leflunomide has no known influence on adenosine metabolism, so different pathogenetic mechanisms must be assumed for the induction of nodulosis by leflunomide.

Leflunomide has been reported as an immunomodulating agent which acts on a variety of cells including T- and B-lymphocytes. CD4+ T-lymphocytes are essential for the type of disease that develops after infection with the protozoan parasite Leishmania major. A variety of immunological interventions has been shown to modulate disease development. Therefore, the effect of leflunomide on the development of parasite-induced lesions and the ensuing immune response was investigated in genetically susceptible BALB/c mice. Oral feeding for 7 to 10 days of leflunomide (30 mg/kg per day) beginning 2 days prior to or at the day of infection led to the development of a stable resistant phenotype, i.e. to long-lasting (> 13 months) regression of the lesions and clinical cure. Starting leflunomide treatment 3 days after infection was ineffective. The main bioactive metabolite, 1726 B, did not inhibit viability or growth of L. major promastigotes and amastigotes in vitro. Quantitative analysis of CD4+ and CD8+ cells in spleens and lymph nodes of parasite-infected animals treated with leflunomide for 5 days showed no significant effect. In vitro, 1726 B dose-dependently inhibited growth of stimulated T-cells, which could not be restored by saturating amounts of exogenous IL-2 and IL-4. No effect was observed on the killing function of activated macrophages. Taken together, the data indicate that leflunomide is a potent prophylactic agent to prevent an otherwise lethal infection of BALB/c mice.

We conducted a systematic review and aimed to answer the following clinical questions: What are the effects of drug treatments in people with rheumatoid arthritis who have not previously received any disease-modifying antirheumatic drug treatment? How do different drug treatments compare in people with rheumatoid arthritis who have either not responded to or are intolerant of first-line disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs? We searched: Medline, Embase, The Cochrane Library and other important databases up to June 2005 (Clinical Evidence reviews are updated periodically, please check our website for the most up-to-date version of this review). We included harms alerts from relevant organisations such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

The project was set to construct an extensive wetland in the southernmost region of Israel at Kibbutz Neot Smadar (30 degree 02'45" N and 35 degree 01'19" E). The results of the first period of monitoring, summary, and perspectives are presented. The constructed wetland (CW) was built and the subsequent monitoring performed in the framework of the Southern Arava Sustainable Waste Management Plan, funded by the EU LIFE Fund. The specific aims were: (1) To end current sewage disposal and pollution of the ground, the aquifer, and the dry river bed (wadi) paths by biologically treating the sewage as part of the creation of a sustainable wetland ecosystem. (2) Serve as an example of CW in the Negev highlands and the Arava Valley climates for neighboring communities and as a test ground for plants and building methods appropriate to hyper arid climate. (3) Serve as an educational resource and tourist attraction for groups to learn about water reuse, recycling, local wildlife and migrating birds, including serving the heart of a planned Ecological-Educational Bird Park. This report is intended to allow others who are planning similar systems in hyper arid climates to learn from our experience.

A total of 465 (29%) of the sarcoidosis patients experienced ocular disease. Of these, 365 patients were treated with methotrexate (MTX) for their eye disease with 281 (77% of those started on MTX) still receiving MTX at the end of the study. Methotrexate was the only systemic therapy prescribed in 115 patients while 101 patients also received concurrent prednisone. Other combinations administered include MTX plus azathioprine and/or leflunomide. A total of 25 patients were treated with the monoclonal anti-TNF antibodies infliximab (19 patients) or adalimumab (6 patients). While all patients initially responded to anti-TNF therapy, only ten patients experienced a sustained response with ongoing therapy or complete remission of ocular disease. Recurrent infections, adverse drug events, or financial constraints were responsible for most drug discontinuations.

Granulumatosis with polyangiitis (wegener's)/GPA microscopic polyangiitis (MPA) and Churg Strauss syndrome (CSS) are primary systemic vasculitides which predominantly affect small vessels, showing a high association with a positive C/PR3-ANCA in GPA and P/MPO-ANCA in MPA, so called ANCA-associated vasculitides (AAV). The diagnostic work-up relies on an interdisciplinary approach including imaging techniques and laboratory tests in order to assess disease stage and extent. The golden standard remains the histological proof of a necrotizing, pauci-immune small vessel vasculitis, in GPA additionally non-caseating granuloma is found mainly in the respiratory tract. Treatment is adapted to disease stage and extent and relies on a combination of a cytotoxic plus a tapering regimen of glucocorticosteroids. Induction of remission in "early systemic" disease without organ- and life-threatening organ manifestations and a near normal kidney function can be achieved with methotrexate. In the generalized phase with significant renal dysfunction cyclophosphamide is the mainstay of therapy, in rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis with an imminent dialysis indication plasmapheresis is performed additionally. When remission is achieved, usually after 3-6 months of induction treatment, cyclophosphamide is switched to azathioprine as maintenance of remission drug. Alternative therapies are methotrexate provided the kidney function is normal or Leflunomide in the long-term follow-up the relapse rate in ANCA-associated vasculitis is approximately 50% in 5 years, irrespective of the drug used for maintenance treatment. The relapse rate is significantly higher in GPA than in MPA and CSS.

Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) suffer from pain and joint disability. The transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) channel expressed on sensory neurones and non-neuronal cells mediates pain transduction and inflammation and it has been implicated in RA. However, there is little information on the contribution of TRPA1 for human disease. Here, we investigated the expression of TRPA1 on peripheral blood leukocytes and the circulating levels of its endogenous activators 4-hydroxynonenal (4-HNE) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in RA patients treated or not with the anti-rheumatic leflunomide (LFN) or the anti-TNFα adalimumab (ADA). We also assessed whether TRPA1 expression correlates with joint pain and disability, in addition to the immune changes in RA. TRPA1 expression on peripheral blood leukocytes correlated with pain severity and disability. TRPA1 levels on these cells were associated with the numbers of polymorphonuclear and the activation of CD14(+) cells. No correlations were found between the lymphocyte population and TRPA1 expression, pain or disability. Patients recently diagnosed with RA expressed increased levels of TRPA1 on their leukocytes whilst treatment with either LFN or ADA down-regulated this receptor probably by reducing the numbers of polymorphonuclears and the activation of CD14(+) cells. We suggest that the activation levels of CD14(+) cells, the numbers of PMNs in the peripheral blood and the expression of TRPA1 on peripheral blood leukocytes correlate with RA progression, affecting joint pain sensitivity and loss of function.

Preincubation of EC with LEF-M led to a 36 (SEM 16)% reduction in PBMC TEM (p<0.05). Likewise, preincubation of PBMC induced a reduction in their TEM of 39 (9)% (p<0.005). Incubation of both PBMC and EC with LEF-M had an additive effect (mean reduction of 48 (6)%, p<0.005). Incubation of PBMC with LEF-M also decreased monocytic CD44 expression (p<0.005) and PBMC-hyaluronan binding (p<0.05). Incubation of cells with LEF-M and uridine in addition to LEF-M reversed the inhibition of migration, suggesting that the observed effects were due to DHODH inhibition. Fluorocytometric analysis of PBMC subsets within the migrated population showed a decrease of monocytes, but not of B or T cells, after LEF-M treatment.

The aim of this study was to define the ultrasonographic factors that indicate clinical remission in patients with RA. We enrolled a cohort of patients with RA in whom the disease had been in remission for at least 6 months. Musculoskeletal ultrasound (US) examination was used to evaluate the status of active synovitis, power Doppler (PD) signalling, and synovitis in the bilateral metacarpophalangeal; proximal interphalangeal; and radiocarpal, ulnocarpal, and intercarpal, compartments of the wrist. A total of 64 RA patients with a mean disease duration of 79.97 months were studied. Of all patients, 36% had ultrasonographic synovitis and 29% an increased PD signal from at least one joint. Delay in diagnosis was highly correlated with synovitis and PD synovitis (r = 0.55, p = 0.000; and r = 0.51, p = 0.001, respectively). A weak negative correlation was evident between synovitis, PD synovitis, tenosynovitis, PD tenosynovitis, and duration of clinical remission (respectively, r = -0.426, p = 0.000; r = -0.333, p = 0.007; r = -0.243, p = 0.050; and r = -0.247, p = buy arava online 0.049). Upon multivariate logistic regression analysis, the duration of clinical remission and delay in diagnosis were the factors that most influenced ultrasonographic remission (OR 3.46, p = 0.046; OR 3.27, p = 0.016, respectively). Synovial inflammation may persist in RA patients exhibiting clinical remission. We found that US detected subclinical synovitis. The most important factors preventing ultrasonographic remission were a short duration of clinical remission and delay in diagnosis.

Points emphasized buy arava online in the 15 recommendations include the need to share treatment decisions between the rheumatologist and the patient, the acquisition by patients of self-management skills, remission or minimal disease activity as the treatment target, the need for initiating disease-modifying drugs as early as possible, and the usefulness of regular disease activity assessments to allow rapid treatment adjustments if needed (i.e., tight disease control). First-line methotrexate monotherapy is recommended, with concomitant short-term glucocorticoid therapy if indicated by the risk/benefit ratio. Patients who fail this approach (no response after 3 months or target not achieved after 6 months) can be considered for another synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD: leflunomide or sulfasalazine), combined synthetic DMARD therapy, or methotrexate plus a biologic, depending on the prognostic factors and patient characteristics. If the first biologic fails, switching to a second biologic is recommended. In the event of a sustained remission, cautious dosage reduction of the biological and/after synthetic DMARDs is in order.

Cyclosporine-A (CSA) and leflunomide (LF) can delay or prevent organ graft rejection. We investigated the combination of LF, CSA and splenectomy on graft survival and changes in lymphocyte phenotypes (LP) in a rat allotransplantation model. In the study 19 Lewis rats were splenectomized prior to heterotopic heart transplantation. SPRD rats served as donors. The recipients were divided into three groups: A--five animals received CSA and LF for two weeks, B--five received intermittent CSA and LF for the whole investigation period and C--nine received no drug therapy. LP was quantified relatively by flow cytometric analysis. We found that graft survival was longer in group A (median 155 days, range 52-348) and B (341, range 338-342), compared to group C (8, range 7-13). The histological examination, however, revealed signs of rejection in all allografts. In group Buspar Pill A all except one animal and in group C the morphological changes were characterized by severe acute rejection. In contrast, one animal in group A and all the animals in group B revealed signs of moderate acute rejection and in most animals signs of chronic rejection were also found. The reduction of Pan-T and CD4+ cells in group B compared to the control group was associated with no clinical rejection, while the increase of CD8+ cells in group C and partly in group A (except for animal 3) was associated with clinical rejection. No difference in LP was detected between groups A and B in the study period. We concluded that a combination of CSA, LF and splenectomy was efficient in preventing clinical rejection, however, there were signs of rejection morphologically even in animals without clinical rejection. The changes in LP over time could not predict the clinical outcome. However, increase in CD8+ cells was highly associated to clinical rejection among nonimmunosuppresed animals.

Although GCA is the commonest systemic vasculitis, prospective randomised trials on steroid sparing agents are rare and mostly included only small patient numbers. Inclusion and response criteria were heterogeneous, and observation periods and follow-up were often short. Criteria for GC-resistance or GC-dependence and for disease remission have not been uniformly defined. There is still an urgent need for prospective randomised trials with larger patient groups, longer follow-up and well defined inclusion criteria and criteria for response and relapse, using standardised disease activity scoring systems, in order to be able to give evidence-based recommendations for patients not responding to GC alone in the future.

N-(trifluoromethylphenyl)-2-cyano-3-hydroxy-crotonic acid amide (A77 1726), the physiologically active metabolite of leflunomide, has been described to exert antiproliferative effects in vitro and anti-inflammatory actions in several animal models. Currently, its use is being evaluated in clinical trials in psoriasis, which is characterized by epidermal hyperproliferation and infiltration of inflammatory cells. We studied the effects of A77 1726 on growth and gene expression in cultured epidermal cells by 5-bromo-2'-deoxy-uridine (BrdU) incorporation, reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), Northern blot hybridizations and flow cytometry. A77 1726 inhibited epidermal proliferation at concentrations above 5 microM after 24 hr. However, the cells were still fully viable at a concentration of 100 microM. The drug caused a dose-dependent reduction in the mRNA level of the type A receptor for the proinflammatory cytokine interleukin-8 (IL-8-RA) and, in contrast, induced gene expression of the receptor for the anti-inflammatory cytokine IL-10 (IL-10R) at the mRNA and protein levels. In addition, the mRNA and protein levels of the p53 gene, which is a negative cell cycle regulator, were up-regulated by A77 1726. These data suggest that A77 1726 exerts its anti-inflammatory action via the modulation of epidermal gene expression.

The inhibitors of pyrimidine synthesis, leflunomide and FK778, have been reported to exert broad antiviral effects, in addition to their immunosuppressive activities. Their possible therapeutic benefit for transplantation medicine is currently discussed, because they also block the replication of human cytomegalovirus and human polyomavirus BK, which both cause important complications in transplant recipients. Here, we show that leflunomide and FK778 strongly enhance hepatitis B virus (HBV) replication in vitro. This activity is shared by mycophenolic acid (MPA), an inhibitor of purine biosynthesis. Stimulation of HBV replication by these agents was linked to their inhibitory effects on de novo nucleotide biosynthesis because it could be efficiently counteracted by external nucleoside supply. Mechanistically, we found that mitogen-activated protein kinase p38 played a key role for the enhancement of HBV replication by leflunomide, FK778, and MPA. All three HBV-activating compounds increased p38 phosphorylation, in contrast to the HBV inhibitors, telbivudine and cyclosporine A. Moreover, silencing of p38 expression through RNA interference efficiently counteracted the stimulatory effect of leflunomide, FK778, and MPA on HBV replication.

We identified 14,932 patients with RA; 6018 patients had 10,547 episodes of new use of DMARDs. Considering methotrexate as the reference and after adjustment for measured confounders, episodes of new use of sulfasalazine [adjusted hazard ratio (aHR) = 1.59; 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.47-1.72] and infliximab alone (aHR = 1.37, 95% CI = 1.09-1.73) were more likely to be discontinued; and new episodes of etanercept (aHR = 0.82, 95% CI = 0.73-0.92) and methotrexate + adalimumab (aHR = 0.63, 95% CI = 0.48-0.84) were less likely to be discontinued. Compared with methotrexate, adherence was higher for leflunomide, infliximab, etanercept, and adalimumab and lower for sulfasalazine and all combined therapies.

The main objective of this study is to compare Spanish and Brazilian self-reported health-related functional capacity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). 197 patients diagnosed with RA were studied in Spain (n = 127) and Brazil (n = 70). Pain (Visual analog scale) and functional capacity (Health Assessment Questionnaire/HAQ) were assessed. Patients were questioned about regular exercise practice. Comparisons between groups were performed with Chi-square tests and Student t test. Pearson's correlation coefficient and linear regression models were used to analyze the associations. Brazilian patients were younger (p = 0.013), had worse levels of pain (p = 0.001) and a trend to experience worse functional capacity (p = 0.057) than Spanish ones. Spanish RA patients had higher body mass index (BMI) (p = 0.019) and longer disease duration (p = 0.001). Also, a higher percentage of subjects with RA from the Spanish cohort had been elected to take early retirement when compared with Brazilian patients (p = 0.010). Spanish RA patients had received more drugs than Brazilians (oral corticosteroids p = 0.010, Leflunomide p = 0.023, Methotrexate p = 0.072, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs p = 0.064, biologic therapies p = 0.001). The functional capacity (HAQ) was correlated with age (p = 0.001), disease duration (p = 0.001), age at diagnosis (p = 0.001), pain (p = 0.001) and BMI (p = 0.001) in Spanish patients. In Brazilian, these correlations were only found with disease duration (p = 0.004) and pain (p = 0.001). In conclusion, our data suggest a better management of RA in Spanish when compared with Brazilians. Even with less pain and functional capacity, they receive more drug treatment and a higher percentage of them are retired early.

Leflunomide is a new immunomodulatory drug effective in experimental models of autoimmune diseases and allo- or xenotransplantation. In a Phase II clinical trial leflunomide has shown high tolerability and efficacy in patients with advanced rheumatoid arthritis. The immunomodulatory activity of leflunomide is attributed to its primary metabolite, A77 1726, a malononitriloamide. The in vitro and in vivo mechanisms of action of this class of compounds remain to be completely defined. A77 1726 and several malononitriloamide analogues inhibit T- and B-cell proliferation, suppress immunoglobulin production, and interfere with cell adhesion. While no one central molecular mechanism of action has been proposed to explain all the effects of the malononitriloamides, inhibition of de novo pyrimidine biosynthesis and inhibition of cytokine- and growth factor-receptor associated tyrosine kinase activity are leading hypotheses for the effects of A77 1726 on T- and B-cell proliferation and function. Leflunomide is effective when administered at daily doses of 10 and 25 mg to patients with active rheumatoid arthritis. The improved efficacy at the 25 mg dose is associated with a higher incidence of adverse effects (gastrointestinal symptoms, weight loss, allergic reactions, skin rash, and reversible alopecia). Due to the long plasma half-life of A77 1726 (11-16 days), loading doses are required to achieve steady-state concentrations. Phase III randomised, placebo-controlled trials using daily doses of 10 or 20 mg are underway in the US and Europe to confirm and extend the results of the Phase II study. Malononitriloamide analogues of A77 1726 are being evaluated for immunosuppressive efficacy in preclinical models of transplantation, because these compounds have a shorter half-life in animals than A77 1726. If these analogues show efficacies similar to leflunomide in these models and have shorter half-lives than A77 1726 in Phase I trials, the preclinical and Phase I data will be used to select the analogues for Phase II trials in organ transplant recipients.

Defining remissions in clinical trials and clinical practice requires appropriate standardized and objective outcome measures, such as the ACR and EULAR remission criteria. Traditional DMARDs often provide symptom relief, improvements in physical function, and the slowing of radiographic progression in patients with RA, but rarely lead to the complete cessation of RA activity. Remission, as defined by the ACR criteria, has been observed in 7 to 22% of patients treated with traditional DMARD monotherapy (ie, gold, penicillamine, methotrexate [MTX], cyclosporine A, or sulfasalazine), but these remissions have often been short-lived. Treatments with DMARD combinations, biologic monotherapy, and biologic combination therapy with MTX offer greater hope and may facilitate the higher rates of remission. Clinical trial results have shown that newer DMARDs such as leflunomide or the combination of multiple DMARDs can generally elicit greater EULAR remission rates (ranging from 13 to 42%) than monotherapies. Biologic combinations with MTX have also been shown to induce significant remission (as defined by the EULAR criteria) in RA patients, with a 31% rate observed with infliximab plus MTX at 54 weeks, a 50% rate observed for adalimumab plus MTX after 2 years of therapy, and a 41% rate observed for etanercept plus MTX after 2 years of therapy.
