1 Introduction to Rheumatology

2 The origins of Rheumatology
Rheumatology - a branch of medicine devoted to the study of rheumatic diseases and disorders of the function and / or structure of the musculoskeletal system. In the I century AD was the first appeared in the literature, the concept of rheuma (revma). The word "rheuma" of Greek origin. Rheuma refers to "a substance that flows", probably formed from phlegm. This is the "primary juice," by definition of the ancients, which was formed in the brain and flowed in different parts of the body, causing illness.

3 The origins of Rheumatology
In 1642, the term "rheumatism" was introduced in the literature by french physician Dr. G. Baillou, who supposed that arthritis can be a manifestation of systemic disease.

4 The origins of Rheumatology
In 1928, in the USA Dr. R. Pemberton organized the American Committee for the treatment of rheumatism, which was renamed the American Association for the Study and Treatment of rheumatic diseases (1934), followed by the American Association of rheumaticism (1937) and, finally, the American Rheumatology Association (1988).

5 The origins of Rheumatology
In 1940, Bernard Comroe suggested the term "rheumatologist.“ In 1949, Hollander uses the term "rheumatology" in his textbook on arthritis and painful condition (Arthritis and Allied Conditions).

6 History of the discovery of some rheumatic diseases

7 Acute rheumatic fever

8 Acute rheumatic fever The doctrine of rheumatism has a long history. For the first time information about rheumatic arthritis appeared in the writings of Hippocrates. There was humoralism (Latin humor - fluid) - current through the joint process. In the early XX century, all were regarded as diseases of the joints and rheumatism. Classic works consecrated to the ARF, have been written by Jean-Bapite Bomllard and Walter B Cheadle and published in 1836, which detailed the "rheumatic arthritis" and carditis. At one time Lasegue said: "Rheumatism licks the joints but bites the heart.“ S. Botkin has been shown that ARF affects many organs: kidneys, skin, nervous system, liver and lungs.

9 Acute rheumatic fever In 1904 morphologist Ludwig Aschoff first discovered and described the morphological substrate of rheumatic fever - a kind of cell granuloma. In 1929 Talalayev showed that rheumatic granuloma Aschoff - only one stage, but it has 3 phases: exudative, proliferative phase, cell proliferation and sclerosis. So now the rheumatic granuloma-called Aschoff Talalayev. In 1933, Rebecca Lancefield was divided into groups hemolytic streptococci, helping researchers clarify the epidemiology of the disease. For the first time the criteria for leadership in the diagnosis of ARF were developed by Dr. T Duckett Jones and published in Later they were adopted and revised by the American Heart Association.



12 Rheumatoid arthritis

13 Rheumatoid arthritis The earliest signs of rheumatoid arthritis were found in 4500 BC. They were found on the remains of skeletons of Indians in Tennessee, USA. The first paper describing the symptoms are very reminiscent of the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis dates back to 123 a year.

14 The first clinical description of this pathology in 1800, is credited with Augustin-Jacob Landre-Beauvais. The author called the disease variant of gout - a "simple asthenic gout" (goutte asthenique primitif). Benjamin Brodie described the slow progression of synovitis by involving joint capsule and tendon sheath.

15 Joint swelling in early rheumatoid arthritis
Deformities of long-standing rheumatoid arthritis


17 Rheumatoid arthritis A. Garrod suggested the term "rheumatoid arthritis" in 1858 and differentiate it from gout in 1892, the disease got its present name.

18 Systemic lupus erythematosus
The name lupus, the Latin version as Lupus erythematosus, comes from the Latin "lupus", which means wolf and "eritematozus" - red, because of its similarity to the bite injuries hungry wolf.

19 This disease is known to doctors since 1828, after describing the French dermatologist Biett skin symptoms

20 45 years later Kaposhi (dermatologist) observed that some patients with skin symptoms are also symptoms of internal organs.


22 In 1845, Ferdinand von Hebra described a rash on the type of "butterflies" on her nose and cheeks.

23 Systemic lupus erythematosus
In 1948,William Hargraves described the LE-cells. This discovery allowed doctors to identify many patients with systemic lupus erythematosus. In 1956, Miescher, described the absorption of LE- cell factor kernels. In 1958, George Friou described a method for identification of antinuclear antibodies.

24 Spondyloarthropathies (ankylosing spondylitis)
The archaeological study of Egyptian mummies found the disease, which is now called ankylosing spondylitis is known to mankind since ancient times. The first historical description of the disease in the literature refers to 1559, when Realdo Colombo described the two skeletons with typical changes of ankylosing spondylitis in his book "Anatomy.“ 100 years later, in 1693, an Irish physician Bernard Connor described the skeleton of a man with signs of scoliosis, in which the sacrum, hip bone, lumbar vertebrae and 10 thoracic vertebrae with ribs are fused into one bone.

25 Spondyloarthropathies (ankylosing spondylitis)
In the late 1890s, Russian doctor, Vladimir Bekhterev and French doctors Adolf Strumpell and Pierre Marie described ankylosing spondylitis. Linking disease to a gene class I HLA-B27 belongs to the Americans Lee Schlosstein, Rodney Bluestone and Paul Terasaki, as well as the British Derrick Brewerton, Caffrey and Nichols.


27 Classification of rheumatic / musculoskeletal syndromes in different years

28 Rheumatology as a specialty
Rheumatology as an independent scientific and practical discipline was formed 45 years ago. Rheumatic diseases are one of the most common pathologies of the human body. The term "rheumatic disease" include a variety of origins of the disease predominantly systemic, less local character, proceeding with persistent or transient articular syndrome.

29 The origins of the classification
Theoretical basis for combining these various diseases in the same group was the fact that their basis is a preferential loss of connective tissue, as dense, which include the dermis, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone and others, and its special types (synovial and serous membranes, basal membranes of blood vessels and epithelium, etc.).

High risk Reducing the volume of circulating blood, as significant bleeding or hemodynamic disturbances on the type of shock Severe heart failure Cirrhosis of the liver with / without ascites Clinically significant dehydration Low - medium risk True kidney disease diabetic nephropathy nephrotic syndrome hypertensive nephropathy beginning of anesthesia The controversial risk advanced age

68 Corticosteroids Corticosteroids are widely used in the treatment of inflammatory forms of arthritis and related systemic autoimmune diseases. In addition to their strong anti-inflammatory effect, they regulate a wide range of metabolic, immunological and central nervous system function. For systemic therapy have been issued numerous synthetic derivatives, but the prednisone, prednisolone, and methylprednisolone are used most widely.

74 Pathogenic (Basic) therapy of inflammatory rheumatic diseases
Disease modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) - the basic drugs from diverse group of funds that reduce the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and other inflammatory autoimmune diseases. In addition, there is increasing evidence that treatment with DMARD, especially if appointed early in the course of the disease, can delay the progression of cartilage and bone. When the RA is not responding to treatment DMARD, can be applied biological therapy. Biologicals alter the action of cytokines

75 Basic therapy When to start - an understanding that changes in the joints can occur within the first 12 months of the debut of RA, led to the earlier introduction of DMARD and more aggressive combination DMARD. Monotherapy - Methotrexate is considered standard therapy for DMARD. Combination therapy - Join one or two DMARD therapy with methotrexate for the background is often used in an attempt to improve clinical response in those patients who did not give an answer to monotherapy with methotrexate. The most commonly used combinations of DMARD - "triple therapy" (methotrexate + hydroxychloroquine sulfosalazin +) or methotrexate plus a biological agent.

76 Pathogenetic (Basic) drugs
Medication Dosage Possible side effects Azathioprine mg/day in 1-3 reception Leukopenia, increased transaminase Wobenzym 15-9 drops in 3 reception Flatulence, change the color and smell of urine, rarely allergic reactions in the form of urticaria Cyclophosphamide mg per day in single dose Hematuria, hair loss, leukopenia, amenorrhea, nausea, vomiting Cyclosporine mg daily in 2 reception Hypertension, increased hair growth, reduced kidney function, hypertrophy of gum, tremor Hydroxychloroquine mg daily in 2-1 reception Violation of, diarrhea, rash

77 Pathogenetic (Basic) drugs
Medication Dosage Possible side effects Leflunomid 10-20 mg/day in 1. Treatment begins with a dose of 100 mg support screens from 3 consecutive days Diarrhea, dizziness, hair loss, hypertension, increased transaminase, leukopenia, rash on the skin Methotrexate mg/week Discomfort in the stomach, skin rash, headache, photosensitivity, increased transaminase, leukopenia, ulcers in the mouth, weakness, fatigue Mycophenolate Mikofenolat 1.5-day Diarrhea, moderate leukopenia Sulfasalazine mg daily in 2-4 reception Abdominal pain, diarrhea, increased sensitivity, reduced appetite, nausea, vomiting, rash on the skin Wobenzym 9-15 drops in 3 reception The feeling of crowding in the stomach, nausea, allergies (skin rashes).

78 Treatment strategies with drugs
Sequential monotherapy Step-up (ascending) combination therapy 3. Step-down (descending) combination therapy 4. Combination with a biological agent

79 Biological therapy One of the most important achievements of the pharmacotherapy of inflammatory rheumatic diseases associated with the development of entirely new group of drugs, which are called "biological" agents. Their mechanism of action is associated with suppression of synthesis of "inflammatory" cytokines, play a fundamental role in the immunopathogenesis of these diseases, especially RA.

80 Immunomodulating and proinflammatory effects of cytokines in the pathogenesis of inflammatory rheumatic diseases (1) Vascular endothelial cells - enhance the expression of adhesion molecules (ISAM-1, VSAM-1, E-selectin) through the activation of NF-kV stimulate angiogenesis, leading to disruption of anticoagulant activity (stimulation of the synthesis of tissue factor, suppression of synthesis of thrombomodulin). Lymphocytes - contribute to the development of lymphoid tissue, modification of SV44 and the ability to bind to the ligand. Dendritic cells - cells induce the maturation and migration from nonlymphoid organs to secondary lymphocyte organs. Neutrophils and platelets - contribute to activation.

81 Immunomodulating and proinflammatory effects of cytokines in the pathogenesis of inflammatory rheumatic diseases (2) Fibroblasts and synoviocytes - lead to proliferation. Pro-inflammatory cytokines - in addition induce the synthesis of IL-1, IL-6, granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor. Other pro-inflammatory mediators - induce the synthesis of PGE2 through activation of COX-2, leukotrienes, platelet activating factor, nitric oxide and reactive oxygen species. Metalloproteinases - induce the synthesis of collagenase, gelatinase, stromelysin. Other effects - increase pain, induce cachexia, induce fever, mobilize calcium from the bones; modulate apoptosis.

82 Biological therapy The particular interest is the use of monoclonal antibodies. These drugs have very high specificity, which provides a selective effect on certain links in the immunopathogenesis of disease, minimally affecting normal functioning mechanisms of the immune system. This can significantly reduce the risk of "generalized" imunosupresed, which is typical of many drugs, especially glucocorticoids and cytotoxic drugs.

83 Monoclonal antibody to TNF-α
Humman Hummanised Kimerik Mouse 100% human protein 5% -10% protein of the mouse Adalimumab Golimumab Adalimumab (Adalimumab) 25% protein of the mouse 100% mouse protein Infliximab

84 Biological therapy The main target for anticytokine monoclonal antibody therapy is: TNF-alpha (infliximab, adalimumab, etc.) IL-6 (tocilizumab) CD20 B cells (rituximab) IL-1, IL-2, etc.

85 Contraindications of biological therapy
Congestive heart failure, Severe infection Latent tuberculosis Malignant neoplasms Pregnancy and lactation.

86 The need for biological specimens
The number of patients The gravity of the condition of the patient Biologicals Corticosteroids Basic drugs (methotrexate, sulfasalazine, leflunomid)

90 What is Rheumatology? Rheumatology is the non-surgical subspecialty of internal medicine that focuses on common and complex problems that may affect the entire body, and frequently involves the musculoskeletal system. Such diseases include: rheumatoid arthritis; gout; lupus; scleroderma; osteoporosis; fibromyalgia and spondylitis. Common problems such as tendonitis, back pain, bursitis and carpel tunnel syndrome can be a result of rheumatologic disorders as well. There are more than 100 types of rheumatological disorders, some of which are very serious and difficult to diagnose and treat.
