Rana Jahanbas-Esfahlan, Saeed Merzadi, Russel J Reiter, Khaled Seidi, Maryam Majidinia, Hossein Bannazadeh Baghi, Nasrin Khatami, Bahman Yousefi and Alitreza Sadeghpour Melatonin in regulation of inflammatory pathways in RA and osteoarthritis: involvement of circadian clock gene British journal of Pharmacology 2018 In this paper, the author carried out study on melatonin, a circadian control product is suggested as a potential link between circadian rhythms and joint disease including RA and OA. We concluded that anti-inflammatory actions of melatonin directly or indirectly block NF-k, B signaling and terminate the inflammatory response. It appears that restoring circadian rhythm alleviate the symptoms of both inflammatory joint disease especially in RA patients.

Anca I Catrina, Vijay Joshua, Lars Klareskog, Vivianne Malmstrom Mechanism involving triggering RA Immunological reviews 2016 Inh have a key role in this paper, the author discuss the highly reactive oxygen free radicals which have a key role in pathogenesis of disease. We conclude that RA patients showed a marked increase in ROS formation, protein oxidation, DNA damage and decrease in activity of antioxidant defense system which may contribute to tissue damage and hence to chronicity of the disease.

Katherine P.Liao, Dorothee Diogo and Robert M. Plenge Association between low density lipoprotein and RA genetic factor with low density lipoprotein levels in RA and non-RA Annals of rheumatoid diseases 2014 In this paper , the author determine the association of established LDL and RA genetic alleles with LDL levels in RA cases compared with non RA controls. We concluded that LDL alleles are associated with LDL levels in RA. RA alleles are associated with lower LDL levels in both RA cases and control. As RA cases carry more RA alleles, these finding suggest a genetic basis for epidemiological observations of lower LDL levels in RA.

Ashraf A.
