Each group included 110 patients with comparable demographic, clinical, laboratory and US characteristics. At 12 months, the LDA rate was similar in the two groups, whilst the clinical remission rate (risk ratio = 1.61 (95% confidence interval = 1.08, 2.04)) and PD negativity rate (risk ratio = 1.31 (95% confidence interval = 1.04, 1.64)) were significantly higher in the MTX+PDN group.

Matrine (MAT) is an active alkaloid extracted from Radix Sophora flavescens. The present study was to investigate whether MAT could effectively treat Adriamycin-induced nephropathy (AIN). AIN was induced in rats using a single injection of Adriamycin (ADR). Renal interleukin-6 (IL-6), IL-10, IL-17 and transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) levels, and the expression of forkhead box protein 3 (Foxp3) and retinoid-related orphan nuclear receptor γt (Rorγt) was measured. AIN rats developed severe albuminuria, hypoalbuminaemia, hyperlipidaemia and podocyte injury. Daily administration of MAT (100mg/kg or 200mg/kg) significantly prevented ADR-induced podocyte injury, decreased AIN symptoms and improved renal pathology manifestations. Of note, treatment with MAT (100mg/kg) plus prednisone (Pre, 5mg/kg) had equivalent efficacy to that of Pre alone (10mg/kg). Additional findings showed that ADR triggered a disordered cytokine network and abnormal expression of Foxp3 and Rorγt in rats, as reflected by increased levels of IL-6, IL-10, TGF-β, Rorγt and decreased levels of IL-10 and Foxp3. Interestingly, MAT weakened the disordered cytokine network and normalized the expression of Foxp3 and Rorγt. In addition, a significant negative correlation was observed between the values of Foxp3/Rorγt and renal pathology scores. Finally, MAT normalized regulatory T cells (Treg)/ T-helper17 cells (Th17) ratio in peripheral blood mononuclear cells of AIN rats. These data indicate MAT prevents AIN through the modification of disordered plasma lipids and recovery of renal function, and this bioactivity is at least partly attributed to the suppression of renal inflammation and the regulation of the Treg/Th17 imbalance.

We evaluated the effect of prednisone on midazolam and odanacatib pharmacokinetics. In this open-label, 2-period crossover study in healthy male subjects, midazolam 2 mg was administered (Day -1) followed by odanacatib 50 mg (Day 1) during Part 1. In Period 2, prednisone 10 mg once daily (qd) was administered on Days 1-28; odanacatib was co-administered on Day 14 and midazolam 2 mg was co-administered on Days 1 and 28. Subjects were administered midazolam 2 mg on Days 42 and 56. Safety and tolerability were assessed throughout the study. A physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) model was also built. There were 15 subjects enrolled; mean age was 31 years. The odanacatib AUC(0- ∞) GMR (90% CI) [odanacatib + prednisone (Day 14, Period 2)/odanacatib alone (Day 1, Period 1] was 1.06 (0.96, 1.17). AUC(0-∞) GMR (90%CI) [midazolam + prednisone (Day 28, Period 2)/midazolam alone (Day -1, Period 1] was 1.08 (0.93,1.26). There were no serious AEs or AEs leading to discontinuation. PBPK modeling showed that prednisone does not cause significant effects on the exposure of sensitive CYP3A4 substrates in vivo at therapeutic doses. Co-administration of prednisone 10 mg qd had no effect on pharmacokinetics of either odanacatib 10 mg or midazolam 2 mg.

At one-year follow-up, ASS patients had resolution (n = 2) or improvement of pulmonary clinical manifestations. Patients also exhibited significant improvement of interstitial lung disease parameters: 1) on pulmonary function tests: FVC (p = 0.03) and DLCO (p = 2 × 10(-5)); 2) and HRCT-scan of the lungs. Due to clinical resolution/improvement of interstitial lung disease, the median daily dose of oral prednisone could be reduced in these 7 ASS patients at one-year follow-up, compared with baseline (20 mg/day vs. 9 mg/day; p = 0.015).

Complete remission (CR) and partial remission (PR) are beneficial to the long-term outcome of patients with idiopathic membranous nephropathy (iMN). However, we are lacking in studies that evaluate the clinical predictors of response to treatment with prednisone plus cyclophosphamide (CP). The objectives of the study are to identify clinical factors that could predict clinical remission or relapse in patients with iMN who were treated with prednisone plus i.v. CP therapy.

We retrospectively studied 12 patients with refractory systemic juvenile arthritis treated with etanercept at our hospital in the past 5 years. The 12 patients were divided into a corticosteroid-dependent group (n=7) and an ineffective group (n=5) on the basis of their responses to treatment before the administration of etanercept. Etanercept was added to the treatment without substantially changing the original regimens in general, and doses, and signs of efficacy including alleviation or resolution of symptoms such as high fever, inflammatory arthropathy, eruption rash, hydrohymenitis, as well as changes in the levels of laboratory inflammatory markers such as the white blood cell count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, levels of C-reactive protein and serum ferritin were recorded.

Acquired pure red-cell aplasia (PRCA) is an uncommon disorder of erythrocytopoiesis that can develop in association with thymic tumors. We present the very rare case of a severely anemic 62-year-old man with PRCA and a concurrent neuroendocrine carcinoid tumor of the thymus. The anterior mediastinal thymus tumor was completely excised, and following histological and immunohistochemical analyses (showing positive staining for cytokeratin, chromogranin A, synaptophysin, and neuron-specific enolase) the diagnosis of a (grade I; T(1)N(0)M(0)) typical carcinoid tumor of the thymus was made. Postoperatively the anemia persisted despite no signs of residual tumor on CT chest. A hematological work up found: normocellularity with <0.5% erythroblasts and preserved megakaryocytopoiesis and granulocytopoiesis in a trephine biopsy; reduced numbers of Colony Forming Unit Erythroid (CFU-E) and normal numbers of Burst-Forming Unit Erythroid (BFU-E) in bone marrow colony-forming assays; a markedly increased level of serum erythropoietin; normal T and B-cell numbers with a normal CD4/CD8 ratio; and no clonal T-cell receptor -gamma and -delta gene rearrangement) The patient responded favorably to a therapeutic trial of glucocorticoid immunosuppressive treatment (prednisone 1 mg/kg/day) with a normalization of the reticulocyte count and hematocrit, suggesting an immunologic mechanism for the PRCA. Though the exact mechanisms underlying the association between the PRCA and the carcinoid tumor of the thymus remain unknown.
An observational, longitudinal, prospective study was carried out. Patients included were those with diagnosis and treated along a year, who, at some point in their evolution, required hospitalization. All the patients received ciclofosfamide, doxorrubicine, vincristine and prednisone; additionally, some of them received rituximab. The follow-up average was 26 months. Survival was estimated with Kaplan-Meier curves.
An observational population-based cohort study was performed to investigate the role of comorbidity on outcome and treatment-related toxicity in patients with newly diagnosed advanced-stage diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) treated with R-CHOP (rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone). Data for the clinical characteristics of 154 patients (median age 69 years), including Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI), treatment, toxicity and outcome were evaluated. Forty-five percent of the patients had an International Prognistic index ≥3 and 16% had a CCI ≥2. The planned R-CHOP schedule was completed by 84% and 75% reached complete remission (CR). In those with CCI ≥2, 67% completed treatment with 46% CR. In patients with a CCI <2, overall survival (OS) after 1, 2 and 5 years was 84%, 79% and 65% respectively and it was 64%, 48% and 48% for those with CCI ≥2. Grade III/IV toxicity was documented in 53%, most frequently febrile neutropenia (27%) and infections (23%). In multivariate analysis CCI ≥2 and IPI ≥3 were independent risk indicators for OS and grade III/IV toxicity. In conclusion, comorbidity is an independent risk indicator for worse OS in patients with advanced DLBCL treated with R-CHOP by interference with intensive treatment schedules and more grade III/IV toxicity. Future studies are warranted to determine the optimal treatment approach in patients with significant comorbidities.

In total, 52,662 treatment courses in 32,859 RA patients were identified. At 6 months from the date of prescription fill, weight gain was seen among patients taking methotrexate, those taking prednisone, and those taking TNFi. On average, compared to methotrexate-treated patients, prednisone-treated patients had significantly more weight gain, while leflunomide-treated patients demonstrated weight loss. In multivariable models, more weight loss (β = -0.41 kg/m(2) , 95% confidence interval [95% CI] -0.46, -0.36; P < 0.001) and a greater risk of weight loss (odds ratio 1.73, 95% CI 1.55, 1.79; P < 0.001) were evident among those receiving leflunomide compared to those receiving methotrexate. Treatment with prednisone was associated with greater weight gain (β = 0.072 kg/m(2) , 95% CI 0.042, 0.10; P < 0.001). These associations persisted in analyses adjusted for propensity scores and in sensitivity analyses.

Malignant lymphomas may originate from any area of the body and cause a variety of symptoms. However, a malignant lymphoma causing urinary symptoms is uncommon. We report a unique case of a 77-year-old woman who presented with a persistent pollakiuria. Radiographic imaging showed a large pelvic mass (13 × 13 × 11 cm) remarkably compressing and invading the bladder wall and accompanied with bilateral hydronephrosis. Urinary cytology revealed malignant lymphoma, and a final diagnosis of malignant lymphoma was made on the basis of transvaginal needle biopsy. Urinary cytology facilitated the definite diagnosis, following which we initiated a rapid and successful treatment with cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone with rituximab.

In this prospective, double-blind, parallel-group clinical trial, 97 consecutive subjects with MOH were randomized (simple randomization using computer-generated numbers) for treatment with either 400 mg/day celecoxib (for the first 5 days then decreased at a rate of 100 mg every 5 days) or prednisone 75 mg/day orally (for the first 5 days then tapered off every 5 days). Subjects who met the International Headache Society criteria for MOH were included in the trial. The change in headache days and intake of rescue medication were considered as primary outcomes while the change in headache severity defined as a secondary outcome.

Between September 2009 and June 2013, 15 patients with newly diagnosed HL received INPT after completing chemotherapy in an institutional review board-approved protocol comparing the dosimetric impact of PT with those of three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3DCRT) and intensity modulated RT. Based on (18)F-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography ((18)F-FDG PET/CT) response, 5 children received 15 to 25.5 cobalt Gy equivalent (CGE) of INPT after receiving 4 cycles of Adriamycin, Bleomycin, Vincristine, Etoposide, Prednisone, Cyclophosphamide or Vincristine, adriamycin, methotrexate, Prednisone chemotherapy, and 10 adults received 30.6 to 39.6 CGE of INPT after 3 to 6 cycles of Adriamycin, Bleomycine, Vinblastine, Dacarbazine. Patients were routinely evaluated for toxicity during and after treatment, using Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events, version 3.0, and for relapse by physical examination and routine imaging. Relapse-free survival (RFS) and event-free survival (EFS) rates were calculated using the Kaplan-Meier method from the time of diagnosis.

Amiodarone is one of the most frequently prescribed antiarrhythmic agents. Despite its widespread use, it is associated with systemic side effects. Pulmonary toxicity, the most severe adverse effect of amiodarone, has usually been described in the context of chronic amiodarone use. We report a case of an 80-year-old male presenting acutely following right upper lung lobe resection for stage 1b adenocarcinoma. He developed atrial fibrillation on postoperative day four and received 12.5 g of amiodarone within a 12 day period. On presentation, he had new bilateral lung opacities and a 35% absolute decline in the predicted diffusion capacity for carbon monoxide. Pulmonary embolism was ruled out on chest computed tomography. Amiodarone was discontinued and prednisone was initiated. Despite initial improvement, he suffered from multiple hypoxemic episodes until his death in the fourth month. In a subset of patients undergoing thoracic surgery who are intubated and require high levels of oxygen, the risk of amiodarone lung toxicity increases and patients may present acutely.

Mean testosterone before and after treatment was 468 and 275 ng/dl, respectively. Mean followup was approximately 1.5 years. One patient had 2 recurrent ischemic priapism episodes while on ketoconazole and prednisone treatment. Another patient experienced an increase in testosterone from 361 to 432 ng/dl after initiation of therapy, and 3 recurrent ischemic priapism episodes requiring emergency corporal irrigation. After dose titration testosterone was 184 ng/dl and the patient has had no subsequent episodes. Mean International Index of Erectile Function-5 score was 24.8 points. There were no recurrent ischemic priapism episodes after withdrawal of ketoconazole and prednisone, and no reported symptoms of hypogonadism.
