Unlike adult RA, in JIA
the clinician is treating a growing patient.
Also, eight children with JIA
(six with oligoarthritis and two with RF negative poliarthritis) were followed-up prospectively.
Low concentration of CS, recorded in serum of JIA
patients with untreated arthroplasty, was negatively statistically significantly correlated with the concentrations of laboratory inflammatory markers, that is, CRP and ESR.
For the purpose of classification, JIA
is divided into 7 heterogeneous subtypes with specific clinical and pathophysiological characteristics (Table 2).
The findings in this case are compatible with the JIA
subtype characterised by symmetric polyarthritis of the large and small joints.
As local JIA
data is scarce, it was a frequent presenting complaint in paediatric outpatient department (OPD).
AbbVie Pharmaceutical Development vice-president, Scott Brun, stated that the company is happy that children between the ages of two and four living with polyarticular JIA
will now have Humira as an additional treatment option.
outcome measures have been validated and are now widely used in clinical trials, including the ACR Pedi 30/50/70.
is known to be the most common cause of rheumatic disease and acquired debility in children1,2.
As an inflammatory disease, JIA
is the most common form of persistent arthritis in children that affects somewhere between 16-150 of every 100,000 children and is characterized with morning stiffness, swelling of the affected joint(s), pain, limping and nonspecific flu-like symptoms with respect to clinical type (12,13).
In an open-label study, the response rate was 73% (11 of 15) for children with systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA
), compared with 67% (6 of 9) for children with pauciarticular and 52% (29 of 56) for children with polyarticular JIA
