TIM-1 defines a human regulatory B cell population that is altered in frequency and function in systemic sclerosis patients
Treatment with Dexamethasone and Monophosphoryl lipid a removes Disease-associated Transcriptional signatures in Monocyte-Derived Dendritic cells from rheumatoid arthritis Patients and confers Tolerogenic Features
Systemic sclerosis patients present alterations in the expression of molecules involved in B-cell regulation
A short protocol using dexamethasone and monophosphoryl lipid A generates tolerogenic dendritic cells that display a potent migratory capacity to lymphoid chemokines
Effect of interleukin-6 receptor blockade on the balance between regulatory T cells and T helper type 17 cells in rheumatoid arthritis patients
Weak CD4+ T-cell responses to citrullinated vimentin in rheumatoid arthritis patients carrying HLA-DR9 alleles
Anti-TNF therapy in patients with rheumatoid arthritis decreases Th1 and Th17 cell populations and expands IFN-gamma-producing NK cell and regulatory T cell subsets
The presence of anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPA) does not affect the clinical response to adalimumab in a group of RA patients with the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) alpha-308 G/G promoter polymorphism
B cells from rheumatoid arthritis patients show important alterations in the expression of CD86 and Fc gamma RIIb, which are modulated by anti-tumor necrosis factor therapy
Basal anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP) antibody levels and a decrease in anti-CCP titres are associated with clinical response to adalimumab in rheumatoid arthritis
Tumour necrosis factor (TNF)alpha-308 G/G promoter polymorphism and TNF alpha levels correlate with a better response to adalimumab in patients with rheumatoid arthritis
Tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) levels and influence of 2308 TNF-alpha promoter polymorphism on the responsiveness to infliximab in patients with rheumatoid arthritis
The -308 polymorphism in the tumour necrosis factor (TNF) gene promoter region and ex vivo lipopolysaccharide-induced TNF expression and cytotoxic activity in Chilean patients with rheumatoid arthritis

Abstract (6)

ANTI-TNF THERAPY INDUCES CHANGES ON T CELLS AND NK CELLS SUB-POPULATIONS IN RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS PATIENTS
Adalimumab, a Tumor Necrosis Factor Blockade Therapy, Decreases Th1 and Th17 Populations in Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients
Basal anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-ccp) antibodies levels and a decrease in anti-CCP titres are associated with clinical response to adalimumab therapy in rheumatoid arthritis patients
Tumor necrosis factor-alpha levels gurrelate with a better response to adalimumab in patients with rheumatoid arthritis
TNF-alpha-308 G/G promoter polymorphism correlates with a better response to adalimumab in patients with rheumatoid arthritis
Tumor necrosis factor-alpha-308 G/G promoter polymorphism correlates with a better response to adalimumab in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
