Occurrence linked to ingestion of purine/pyrimidines, endogenous production of urate, and breakdown of tissues
hypertrophy of chondrocytes, but decrease in collagen production
subchondral sclerosis
90% male, correlated with obesity and alcohol use
Alcohol increases conversion of ATP to AMP; produces lactate that acts on URAT1
Can be caused by increase in enzyme PRPP
Belimumab (2)
anti-ssa/ssb (not lupus)
Belimumab (1)
Heberden's Node
increase vascularization of cartilage which allows cytokine spread
Bouchard's Node
TGFb/CTGF sensitize fibroblasts and increases collagen production
Vital Dye test
cells inappropriately express both MHC1 and 2
treat with physical therapy, braces, NSAIDs
4:1 female to male ratio
Possible mimicry between retroviruses and anti-SCL70
TGFb downregulated metalloproteinase release
two causal reasons: highly vascularized synovium, no basement membrane
lack of DHEA
spares lung/kidneys
CXCL 12 - T-cells
transmural inflammation
ANA test involves permeabilizing cells
Characterized by immune dysregulation/vascular dysfunction/fibrosis
ectopic lymphoid follicles in salivary glands
polymorphisms in HLA DR2/DR3
IFN-g/TNFa both inhibit SMAD activity
Interferon Signature (2)
Defect in clearance of apoptosis
fibroblasts turn to myofibroblasts
anti-ANA are first important sign
IFNalpha upregulates TLR7/IRF7 to help uptake of DNA/RNA containing complexes
Acute Uric Acid nephropathy (especially in cancer patients with chemo drugs)
Type I/III collagen production
monoarthritic arthritis, usually 1st MTP/Knee/Ankle
cartilage fragments mediate inflammation
3 stages, last one develops B cell Lymphoma
Can be caused by deficiency of HGPRT
IFN signal induced by DNA/RNA containing complexes
msu crystals
HLA DQ7/DR5 associated
Pathway: Nalp3 -> IL-1b -> NfkB -> attracting of neutrophils
Tophi in olecranon bursa
Vascular injury may be initiating factor
cytokines: TGFb, CTGF, PDGF(r)
Schirmer's test
Uric Acid Kidney Stones
Can be caused by increase in enzyme APRT
Can be caused by increase in enzyme XO
TGFb/SMAD signaling
Cytokines Involved: IL-1, IL-6, IL-17, TNFalpha, with TNF-alpha being the boss
75% of people get this
estrogen and prolactin cause activation/proliferation of lymphocytes
Fibrosis leading to ischemia and organ damage
cast nephritis
Anti-Smith, Anti-dsDNA, Anti-SSB
renal hypertension due to medium vessel closure
environmental influence of vinyl plastics, hair dyes
fibroblasts upregulate PDGFr in response to TGFb
CXCL 13 - B-cells
20-200 white cells in joint fluid
30% associated with HepB infection
environmental triggers are UV exposure/DNA or RNA viruses/Medication
A20 mutation leads to too much NfKb
Sex hormones/chromosomes are important

Raynaud's Phenomenon precedes it
problems in the WNT pathway
cells express Bax, lymphocytes express BCLxl
