European Radiology; Laporte A, Mariampillai K et. al.

Jan 14th, 2022 - Interstitial lung disease (ILD), one of the most common extramuscular manifestations of idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIMs), carries a poor prognosis. Myositis-specific autoantibody (MSA)-positivity is a key finding for IIM diagnosis. We aim...

Targeting necroptosis in muscle fibers ameliorates inflammatory myopathies.
Nature Communications; Kamiya M, Mizoguchi F et. al.

Jan 12th, 2022 - Muscle cell death in polymyositis is induced by CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes. We hypothesized that the injured muscle fibers release pro-inflammatory molecules, which would further accelerate CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes-induced muscle injury, and...

Another Trial Backs Statin Safety

Feb 25th, 2021 - Close on the heels of SAMSON, a series of randomized "n-of-1" trials showed no difference in muscle symptoms when people were put on a statin versus a placebo. People who had previously reported statin myopathies ended up rating muscle symptoms si...

Environmental Factors in Myositis: A Link?

Jun 17th, 2020 - The development of a subtype of inflammatory myopathy characterized by interstitial lung disease and positivity for a specific autoantibody was influenced by seasonality and place of residence, Japanese researchers found. Among patients with polym...
