61. Corticosteroid Injections Into Lumbar Facet Joints: A Prospective, Randomized, Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Trial. (Abstract)

Corticosteroid Injections Into Lumbar Facet Joints: A Prospective, Randomized, Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Trial. Corticosteroid injections into the intra-articular zygapophysial (z-joints) are frequently used to treat this cause of low back pain. No studies have been done on the efficacy of intra-articular corticosteroids in those with z-joint pain confirmed by dual comparative medial branch blocks.The aim of the study was to determine whether an injection of a corticosteroid into lumbar z (...) -joints is effective in reducing pain and the need for radiofrequency neurotomy.This is a double-blind, prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled trial. The study was conducted in Academic Medical Center. Twenty-eight subjects with z-joint pain confirmed by medial branch blocks were included in the study. Subjects with confirmed z-joint pain via dual comparative medial branch block were randomized to receive either intra-articular corticosteroid (triamcinolone 20 mg) or saline via fluoroscopic

62. Safety and Efficacy of Baricitinib in Patients Receiving Conventional Synthetic Disease-Modifying Antirheumatic Drugs or Corticosteroids. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Safety and Efficacy of Baricitinib in Patients Receiving Conventional Synthetic Disease-Modifying Antirheumatic Drugs or Corticosteroids. This study assessed if concomitant use of conventional synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (csDMARDs) or corticosteroids altered the response or safety outcomes to baricitinib in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients.Patients with ≥ 6 swollen/tender joints and no prior biologic DMARD were eligible for study inclusion. In RA-BUILD, csDMARD-inadequate (...) responder (IR) patients were randomized to placebo or baricitinib (2 or 4 mg) once daily (QD). In RA-BEAM, methotrexate (MTX)-IR patients were randomized to placebo QD, baricitinib 4-mg QD, or adalimumab 40-mg biweekly. Patients continued background csDMARD (including MTX) therapy. This post hoc analysis of placebo and baricitinib 4-mg patients assessed the number and type of concomitant csDMARDS and concurrent corticosteroid use.From 716 placebo patients, 71, 21, and 6% were taking MTX alone, MTX + ≥ 1

66. Comparing Corticosteroid Preparation and Dose in the Improvement of Shoulder Function and Pain: A Randomized, Single-Blind Pilot Study. (Abstract)

Comparing Corticosteroid Preparation and Dose in the Improvement of Shoulder Function and Pain: A Randomized, Single-Blind Pilot Study. Shoulder pain may arise from inflammation of the bursa separating the supraspinatus tendon from the coracoacromial ligament and acromion.

There were no statistically significant differences at 6 wks regarding improvement in pain. There were no statistically significant differences noted in adverse events among the four arms.Neither dose nor preparation of injectable corticosteroid influences magnitude of improvement in function or pain experienced. Although this study provides clinically relevant insight regarding corticosteroid dose and type when managing shoulder pain, the modest sample size

Association Between Inhaled Corticosteroid Use and Bone Fracture in Children With Asthma Daily use of inhaled corticosteroids is a widely recommended treatment for mild persistent asthma in children. There is concern that, similar to systemic corticosteroids, inhaled corticosteroids may have adverse effects on bone health.To determine whether there is an increased risk of bone fracture associated with inhaled corticosteroid use in children with asthma.In this population-based nested case (...) lookback period to ascertain history of inhaled corticosteroid use. Multivariable conditional logistic regression was used to obtain an odds ratio (OR) with 95% confidence interval for fracture, comparing no inhaled corticosteroid use vs current, recent, and past use.Inhaled corticosteroid use during the child's 1-year lookback period, measured as current user if the prescription was filled less than 90 days prior to the index date, recent user (91-180 days), past user (181-365 days), or no use.First

Corticosteroids are synthetic analogues of the natural hormones that are produced by the adrenal cortex. Like the natural hormones, synthetic corticosteroids can have glucocorticoid and/or mineralocorticoid properties.

70. A Retrospective Analysis of Corticosteroid Utilization Before Initiation of Biologic DMARDs Among Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis in the United States Full Text available with Trip Pro

A Retrospective Analysis of Corticosteroid Utilization Before Initiation of Biologic DMARDs Among Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis in the United States Understanding the effects of corticosteroid utilization prior to initiation of biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) can inform decision-makers on the appropriate use of these medications. This study examined treatment patterns and associated burden of corticosteroid utilization before initiation of biologic DMARDs among (...) rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients.A retrospective analysis was conducted of adult RA patients in the US MarketScan Database (2011-2015). The following patterns of corticosteroid utilization were analyzed: whether corticosteroids were used; duration of use (short/long duration defined as < or ≥ 3 months); and dosage (low as < 2.5, medium as 2.5 to < 7.5 and high as ≥ 7.5 mg/day). Effects of corticosteroid use on time to biologic DMARD initiation were examined using Cox proportional hazards models

Corticosteroid-resistant inflammatory signalling in Pseudomonas-infected bronchial cells Decreasing the inflammatory response that leads to tissue damage during cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease has been a long-standing goal of CF therapy. While corticosteroids are widely used anti-inflammatory drugs, their efficacy in CF lung disease remains debated. The complex interaction between the colonising bacteria and the host environment may impact corticosteroid responsiveness. In this study, sputum (...) samples from adult CF patients were collected at baseline and during pulmonary exacerbation episodes. Lung function measurements and sputum microbiological analyses were performed. In parallel, the inflammatory response and corticosteroid sensitivity of airway epithelial cells to Pseudomonas-derived exoproducts was investigated. We report that adult CF patients colonised with mucoid Pseudomonas aeruginosa have higher levels of baseline inflammation, more frequent exacerbations and worse lung function
