How to Play
Can be caused by increase in enzyme XO
Vascular injury may be initiating factor
HLA DQ7/DR5 associated
cytoplasmic and perinuclear antibodies
estrogen and prolactin cause activation/proliferation of lymphocytes
lack of DHEA

polymorphisms in HLA DR2/DR3
lymphepithelial lesion
HLADRB1 association
TGFb downregulated metalloproteinase release
treat with physical therapy, braces, NSAIDs
spares lung/kidneys
slow progression over time
Sex hormones/chromosomes are important
Cytokines: IL-6, IL-17, IFN-alpha

crescentic glomerulonephritis
two causal reasons: highly vascularized synovium, no basement membrane
fibroblasts turn to myofibroblasts
anti-ANA are first important sign

Can be caused by increase in enzyme PRPP
20-200 white cells in joint fluid
antibiotic resistant arthritis possibly due to mimcry between OspA and LFA
Type I/III collagen production
monoarthritic arthritis, usually 1st MTP/Knee/Ankle
renal hypertension due to medium vessel closure
malar rash
6% concordance among MZ twins
Can be caused by increase in enzyme APRT
Occurrence linked to ingestion of purine/pyrimidines, endogenous production of urate, and breakdown of tissues
transmural inflammation
Pathway: Nalp3 -> IL-1b -> NfkB -> attracting of neutrophils
IFN-g/TNFa both inhibit SMAD activity
cells express Bax, lymphocytes express BCLxl
Tophi in olecranon bursa
Mainly affects DIP, Knee, and 1st MCP joints
CXCL 13 - B-cells

African Americans have particularly high anti-SCL70, bad prognosis
Cytokines Involved: IL-1, IL-6, IL-17, TNFalpha, with TNF-alpha being the boss

polymorphisms in C2/C4 genes
cells inappropriately express both MHC1 and 2
Comes in both diffuse/limited versions
Characterized by immune dysregulation/vascular dysfunction/fibrosis
Anti-Smith, Anti-dsDNA, Anti-SSB
increase vascularization of cartilage which allows cytokine spread
