A 61-year-old Caucasian was admitted to Department of Chest Diseases and Tuberculosis, Medical University of Bialystok, Poland for progressive muscle weakness and weight loss. Eighteen months prior to admission, the patient had been diagnosed with pulmonary embolism. At that point he was started on Enoxaparin QD. Past medical history was unremarkable. In the interim, the patient developed fever, myalgia and progressive dyspnea. Physical examination on admission revealed a rash on his upper torso and back, and the extensor surfaces of all four extremities. Laboratory values included CPK 8229, MB fraction 219, LDH 981. Chest X-ray and CT scan revealed bilateral patchy consolidations and ground-glass opacities. EMG was consistent with myositis. The patient was started on solumedrol 40 mg i.v., b.i.d., and then switched to prednisone 40 mg b.i.d. His symptoms and muscle strength improved remarkably. The patient was discharged with prednisone with an outpatient follow up.

Gene therapy has become a focus not only in the study of cancer but also lifestyle-related diseases. In case of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps and aspirin-induced asthma, nasal polyps poorly respond to a local administration of steroid. The Bax and Bcl-2 proteins play important roles in the regulation of apoptosis. The treatment of steroid (prednisone) induced apoptosis in the fibroblast. The Bax accelerates apoptosis. Apoptosis is very important in the anti-inflammatory mechanism. In this study, we investigated whether the overexpression of Bax in human fibroblasts influences apoptosis by treatment with a steroid (prednisolone) in vitro. Human nasal fibroblasts were isolated from small pieces of nasal polyp and were transfected with a bax gene-bearing mammalian expression vector. Human nasal fibroblasts were transiently transfected with the expression vector hBaxpcDNA3 (Bax-NF) or native pcDNA3 (Neo-NF). Both transfectants (Bax-NF, Neo-NF) and wild-type-nasal fibroblast (wt-NF) were cultured in conditioning medium and treated with each concentration of prednisolone for 72 h. Prednisolone at a concentration of 10 ng/ml decreased the viability of Bax-NF compared to that of Bax-NF in the absence of prednisolone. The cytotoxicity of prednisolone to Bax-NF was significantly higher than that to Neo-NF or wt-NF (p < 0.01) and the susceptibility of Bax-NF to prednisolone was about 1,000 times that of Neo-NF or wt-NF. We found that the transfer of the exogenous bax gene enhanced the induction of apoptosis by steroid-treatment in human nasal fibroblasts. Therefore, we suggest that exogenous Bax protein expression by gene transfer might be useful for the treatment of nasal polyps. We will further the preclinical study in improving steroids dose and in adopting to transfer bax gene to the nasal polyps by intranasal injection, thus providing a more effective and safer way for the nasal polyps that poorly respond to a local administration of steroids.

Twenty-five patients with juvenile rheumatic diseases (ages 2-19 years) and 18 healthy children and adolescents (ages 3-18 years) received a single dose of VV. All 25 patients were receiving methotrexate; 13 were also receiving prednisone and 5 were also receiving other disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs. None of the vaccinated patients or controls had a previous history of varicella. Anti-varicella-zoster virus IgG antibody (anti-VZV-IgG) titers were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay immediately before, 4-6 weeks after, and 1 year after vaccination. The patients were monitored prospectively for adverse reactions related to the vaccine, exposure, and occurrence of varicella. Disease activity was assessed 3 months before and 3 months after VV.

We studied RA patients recruited from rheumatology clinics. Annually, we assessed the glucocorticoid dose, demographic, socioeconomic, clinical, and laboratory features of RA, cardiovascular (CV) risk factors, and vital status. We used Cox proportional hazards regression to assess associations between the daily or cumulative glucocorticoid dose and death, adjusting for potential confounders and for the propensity to receive glucocorticoids. We tested strata of the glucocorticoid dose to delineate the threshold associated with death.

The age-adjusted International Prognostic Index (IPI) is an important prognostic factor for patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). We investigated whether a geriatric assessment (GA) is of additional prognostic value in NHL. In this prospective cohort study of 44 patients aged 70 years or older with NHL receiving rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone (R-CHOP), a GA was administered before the start of chemotherapy. GA was composed of the Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA), Groningen Frailty Indicator (GFI), Informant Questionnaire on Cognitive Decline in the Elderly (IQCODE), Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) and levels of albumin, creatinine, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and hemoglobin. Multivariate analyses were performed using logistic regression and the Cox regression model. After adjustment for sex, age, comorbidity and univariate laboratory values with p ≤ 0.1, abnormal MNA and GFI scores and low hemoglobin level were associated with not being able to complete the intended chemotherapy: odds ratio (OR) 8.29 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.24-55.6; p = 0.03), 9.17 (95% CI: 1.51-55.8; p = 0.02) and 5.41 (95% CI: 0.99-29.8; p = 0.05), respectively. Adjusted for sex, age, comorbidity, age-adjusted IPI and univariate laboratory values with p ≤ 0.1, frailty by GFI and low hemoglobin were associated with worse survival, with a hazard ratio (HR) of mortality of 2.55 (95% CI: 1.07-6.10; p = 0.04) and 4.90 (95% CI: 1.76-13.7; p = 0.002), respectively. We conclude that (risk of) malnutrition, measured with the MNA, frailty, measured with the GFI, and low hemoglobin level had additional predictive value for early treatment withdrawal, and GFI and hemoglobin were, independent of the age-adjusted IPI, predictive for an increased mortality risk.

This study evaluated the effect of age and cell of origin on the prognostic significance of Ki-67 labeling index (Ki-67 LI) on overall survival (OS) of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) in a cohort of 697 patients treated with rituximab plus cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone (R-CHOP). Multivariate analysis revealed no prognostic significance of high Ki-67 LI (≥ 85%) for OS. However, on subgroup analysis, high Ki-67 LI was significantly associated with poor OS in late-elderly patients (aged ≥ 70 years) (p = 0.021) and non-germinal center B-cell-like (GCB) subtype (p = 0.015). In particular, high Ki-67 LI was associated with a poor prognosis in late-elderly patients with non-GCB subtype. No correlation was observed in young adults (aged < 60 years) or early-elderly (aged 60-70 years) patients or GCB subtype. The present study shows that high Ki-67 LI is a risk factor for poor OS in the late-elderly age group and non-GCB subtype in patients with DLBCL treated with R-CHOP.

This study investigated responses to retreatment with rituximab in chronic immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) patients. Treatment with rituximab in chronic ITP patients induces long-lasting responses in approximately 30% of patients but even these patients may relapse. Twenty patients who had achieved a response to rituximab and relapsed were retreated with rituximab (375 mg/m(2)x 4); this data was analyzed retrospectively. Subsequently, 16 patients were prospectively randomized to receive rituximab with cyclophosphamide, vincristine and prednisone (R-CVP) or double dose rituximab (DDR). Retreatment with standard dose rituximab demonstrated responses similar to initial rituximab treatment in 15 of 20 patients. Neither of the two more intensive regimens (R-CVP, DDR) induced responses in any patient who had previously failed to respond to rituximab nor induced substantially longer-lasting responses among previous responders. No additional toxicity was noted with the DDR regimen, whereas R-CVP was not well tolerated. These results suggest that retreatment with standard dose rituximab induces similar responses in 75% of previously responding patients and is well tolerated. Neither combining rituximab with CVP nor doubling the dose of rituximab increased the response rate.
