Twelve whole-blood DNA samples from six SLE patients and six controls were analyzed by Illumina HumanMethylation27 BeadChip.
The series contain eight UC samples with macroscopic signs of inflammation, 13 UC smaples without macroscopic signs of inflammation, five control subjects.
The genome-wide study used matched case-control design, with 97 samples of 90 patients in three disease groups. Matched control samples were used and several (7) technical replicates were performed.
Fibroblast-like cells (FLS) were purified from synovial biopsies from RA patients. Briefly, minced synovial fragments were digested in 1 mg/ml hyaluronidase solution (Sigma Aldrich, St Louis, MO) for 15 minutes at 37°C and 6 mg/ml collagenase type IV (Invitrogen, Paisley, UK) for 2 hours at 37°C. Next, cells were washed, resuspended in high-glucose Dulbecco’s Modified Eagle Medium (Invitrogen) supplemented with 1% antibiotics-antimycotics (Invitrogen) and 1% MEM sodium pyruvate (Invitrogen), ...
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).
