We have recruited 9 RA patients starting immunotherapy with rituximab. The same day of the first infusion we obtained the three different cell type samples: whole blood (preserved in PaxGene tubes), B cells (using negative selection) and CD4+ T cells (using negative selection). At week 24 of treatment we determined the clinical response using the RelDas score. All tissue samples were processed in parallel (i.e. RNA extraction and microarray profiling with Illumina WG6 Beadchip) in order to mi...
All patients had rheumatoid arthritis (RA), according to the American College of rheumatology criteria for the diagnosis of RA. They had active disease at the time of initiation of adalimumab therapy and were resistant to conventional therapy. They all had erosive changes imaged on conventional x-rays of the hands and/or feet. All patients were treated with disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARD’s), 23 with methotrexate (median dose 15 mg/week, range 7.5 – 20 mg/week), and 2 with leflun...
Three patients with acute myocardial infarction and three healthy people in Northeast Chinese Han people were recruited,total RNA of each samples were extracted from peripheral blood to hybridize with Affymetrix microarrays.
Peripheral blood was collected from 21 African-American (AA) and 21 European-American (EA) SLE patients, 5 AA controls, and 5 EA controls. CD4+ T-cells, CD8+ T-cells, monocytes and B cells were purified by flow sorting. Each cell subset from each subject was run on an Illumina HumanHT-12 V4 expression BeadChip array (n=208 arrays).

IFN-K or placebo was administered at day 0, day 7, day 28 in all patients. Half the subjects received a fourth injection at day 84 (see treatment protocol)
Extended clinical (SLEDAI, BILAG, Physician Global Assessment) and biological (binding and neutralizing anti-IFNalpha Ab titers, C3 concentrations and anti double-stranded (ds)DNA Ab titers) follow-up data were collected in 6 IFN-K-treated patients. In these patients, whole blood samples were collected in PAXgene Blood RNA tubes (Qiagen) every 6 months after completion of the initial study. RNA was extracted from these samples, and was also re-extracted from baseline (month 0) and day 168 (mo...
