Whilst researching "Jewels of the Jungle, Bromeliaceae of Ecuador, Part III Tillandsioideae", we had the opportunity to study specimens at the Missouri Botanical Garden (MO) and at the Herbario del Museo de Ciencias Naturales in Quito (QCNE) which have turned out to be three novelties in Racinaea M. A. Spencer ...

The diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is often challenging, due to a wide spectrum of presentations, progressive changes in disease course over time, and, perhaps, most importantly, lack of a clinical or laboratory gold standard to define the presence or absence of disease. Several attempts at the creation of RA ...

A multidimensional health assessment questionnaire (MDHAQ) can enhance doctor-patient communication beyond the important function of providing RAPID3 scores, preparing the patient for the encounter and saving time for the doctor. Optimal use of the MDHAQ should include the following actions: 1. the MDHAQ should be distributed to each patient at ...

Vitamin D is an essential steroid hormone, with well-established effects on mineral metabolism, skeletal health, and recently established effects on the cardiovascular and immune systems. Vitamin D deficiency is highly prevalent and evidence is mounting that it contributes to the morbidity and mortality of multiple chronic diseases, including systemic lupus ...

Recent advances in research have led to significant progress in unraveling the pathophysiology of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), including the cytokine-mediated signaling process. While therapies targeting one particular cytokine, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-[alpha]), have revolutionized the treatment of RA, other cytokines, including interleukin 6 (IL-6,) have been implicated in the disease ...

The development of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitor therapy has revolutionized the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Unfortunately, no one single agent is fully effective in every patient; different patients respond to different therapies in different ways, even to those agents with the same mechanism of action. In this regard, ...

Gout is a chronic disease in which excessively high levels of serum urate (hyperuricemia) result in tissue depositions of sodium urate crystals and intermittent inflammatory attacks. Patients who have gout frequently experience a range of comorbidities, which complicates management and affects long-term prognosis. We review some of the more important ...

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is classified as a spondyloarthropathy and characterized by synovitis, enthesitis, dactylitis, and spondylitis, usually manifesting in a person with skin and nail psoriasis. Our understanding about the PsA disease state, its genetics, pathophysiology, and comorbidities, as well as our ability to assess and treat the disease, has ...

The use of musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) in rheumatology practice and research has increased steadily over the last decade. An ever-growing body of literature shows parity and even superiority of MSKUS when compared to physical examination, plain radiography, and more expensive and static imaging modalities such as MRI. While many use ...

In addition to the HLA locus, over 30 genetic loci have been convincingly associated with risk for rheumatoid arthritis, and the majority of these associations have been identified in the last four years. Although this is a remarkable accomplishment, the majority of the genetic risk for RA still remains to ...

The pace of clinical trials activity in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) continues to accelerate. After decades of reliance on largely empiric approaches, a solid evidence-based foundation to guide our use of traditional agents, such as cyclophosphamide and azathioprine, is finally developing. In addition, we are learning how to integrate relatively ...

T cells play a prominent role in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis. Abatacept is the first FDA approved agent for rheumatoid arthritis that blocks the activation of T cells by interrupting the interaction between the CD28 ligand on the T cell and the CD80/86 ligand on the antigen presenting cell. ...

Fibromyalgia is a chronic syndrome of diffuse musculoskeletal pain with tenderness at specific locations, often associated with persistent fatigue, cognitive and mood disorders, joint stiffness, and insomnia. Understanding the pathophysiology of fibromyalgia and the establishment of effective treatments have been complex endeavors that have not yielded simple answers. Nevertheless, recent ...

This document analyzes the health care industry as it currently operates in the American economy. The introductory section explores the challenges and problems being encountered. The following sections evaluate how it measures up to models of pure competition and models of imperfect competition. Finally, the discussion will center on the ...

The drug supply and delivery play a very important role in developing a quality health care system. In spite of recent improvement in supply process, drug stores still face a difficulty in providing effective drug delivery and flexible access methods to patients during critical times. Access to drugs during such ...

An essential determinant of healthcare organizational performance is managerial competence. From the research, it appears that many fulfilling those managerial roles do not appear to possess proper management qualifications or managerial experience in healthcare. This study focuses on expanding previous research to another segment of the healthcare delivery systems that ...

Cigarette smoking, a priority public policy issue, calls for intensive research to understand the phenomena that underlies the increasing level of smoking among adolescents. A much ignored variable in this area of research--race--is actively being considered in health literature. This paper explores the affect of race on smoking, in addition, ...

In this research, we find support for a proposed set of linkages among employee perceptions of organizational green orientation, individual green orientation, and impacts of the green movement on organizational performance in healthcare vs. non-healthcare organizations. Specifically, we find that employees who believe that they and their organizations are aligned ...
