02 Mar 2021-Rheumatology (Oxford Academic)-Vol. 60, Iss: 3, pp 1195-1204
Abstract: OBJECTIVES Few studies have investigated the prognostic factors for idiopathic inflammatory myopathy-associated interstitial lung disease (IIM-ILD) across different clinical/serological phenotypes. METHODS We conducted a retrospective analysis of patients diagnosed with IIM between January 2012 and December 2017. RESULTS Of the 760 IIM cases registered, 679 adult cases were included in this study. ILD was present in 508 cases, and the presence of ILD in the clinically amyopathic DM, DM and PM groups was 92.7, 73.6 and 55.1%, respectively (P 0.05). The prevalence of ILD in the melanoma differentiation-associated protein-5 (MDA-5)+-IIM group was higher than that in MDA-5--IIM group (97.8 vs 72.1%, P 0.05), although both were higher than that in PM group (13.2%, P = 0.01 and P 0.05), and both were lower than that in MDA5+ASA--IM-ILD group (33.7%, P < 0.05). CONCLUSION The prevalence of ILD in IIM and the prognosis of IIM-ILD patients may vary depending on the statuses of the ASA and MDA-5 antibodies.

Abstract: Background Interstitial lung disease (ILD) and its rapid progression (RP) are the main contributors to unfavourable outcomes of patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathy (IIM). This study aimed to identify the clinical value of PET/CT scans in IIM-ILD patients and to construct a predictive model for RP-ILD. Methods Adult IIM-ILD patients who were hospitalized at four divisions of the First Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine (FAHZJU), from 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2020 were reviewed. PET/CT scans and other characteristics of patients who met the inclusion and exclusion criteria were collected and analysed. Results A total of 61 IIM-ILD patients were enrolled in this study. Twenty-one patients (34.4%) developed RP-ILD, and 24 patients (39.3%) died during follow-up. After false discovery rate (FDR) correction, the percent-predicted diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide (DLCO%, P = 0.014), bilateral lung mean standard uptake value (SUVmean, P = 0.014) and abnormal mediastinal lymph node (P = 0.045) were significantly different between the RP-ILD and non-RP-ILD groups. The subsequent univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses verified our findings. A "DLM" model was established by including the above three values to predict RP-ILD with a cut-off value of ≥ 2 and an area under the curve (AUC) of 0.905. Higher bilateral lung SUVmean (P = 0.019) and spleen SUVmean (P = 0.011) were observed in IIM-ILD patients who died within 3 months, and a moderate correlation was recognized between the two values. Conclusions Elevated bilateral lung SUVmean, abnormal mediastinal lymph nodes and decreased DLCO% were significantly associated with RP-ILD in IIM-ILD patients. The "DLM" model was valuable in predicting RP-ILD and requires further validation.

Abstract: Objectives Anti-Ro-52 antibody positivity might be associated with the presence of interstitial lung disease (ILD) among patients with autoimmune features. However, the clinical significance of isolated anti-Ro-52 positivity (i.e., the presence of anti-Ro52 antibodies but the absence of anti-Ro60 antibodies; anti-Ro52+-Ro60-) in patients with ILD is not clear. Methods This is a prospective and observational study of Chinese ILD patients with isolated anti-Ro-52 positivity. According to their myositis-specific antibody (MSA) status, patients were split into groups, and their clinical and radiological features were compared. Results Of the 158 enrolled patients with ILD and isolated anti-Ro-52 positivity (isolated anti-Ro-52-ILD), there were 130 patients with a positive MSA status and 28 patients with a negative MSA status. Anti-synthetase antibodies (ASAs) were found in 61.5% of patients with MSA+ ILD, and anti-melanoma differentiated-associated protein 5 (MDA-5) antibodies were found in the remaining 38.5% of patients. The anti-nuclear antibody (ANA) pattern was associated with ASA and anti-MDA-5 positivity (χ2=70.7, P Conclusions Patients with isolated anti-Ro-52-ILD showed high positivity of MSA. Isolated anti-Ro-52 positivity with cytoplasmic ANA positivity was strongly associated with ASA+-ILD, while ANA negativity was associated with anti-MDA-5+-ILD.

Abstract: Clinically amyopathic juvenile dermatomyositis (CAJDM) is a clinical subgroup of juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM), characterized by JDM rashes with little or no clinically evident muscle weakness. Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is an uncommon but potentially fatal complication of juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM). While adults with dermatomyositis-associated ILD usually present respiratory symptoms before or at the same time as skin muscle manifestations, only a few studies have covered the onset of respiratory symptoms of ILD in JDM patients, especially CAJDM. There is currently no clear effective treatment regime or any prognostic factors for CAJDM-associated ILD. Here, we report the first case of a CAJDM patient who presented with respiratory symptoms as the initial manifestation. A 10-year-old male patient presented to the hospital with a complaint of progressive cough and chest pain. Violaceous macule and papules appeared a few days later and he was positive for anti-Ro-52 antibodies. Imaging showed diffuse interstitial infiltration in both lungs and lung function tests showed restrictive and obstructive ventilatory dysfunction. Muscular abnormalities were excluded by thigh magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and electromyography. Skin biopsy showed pathognomonic findings consistent with DM. Lung biopsy indicated chronic inflammation of the mucosa. This patient was finally diagnosed with CAJDM complicated by ILD and prescribed methylprednisolone, immunoglobulin, prednisolone and mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) for treatment. The patient’s cutaneous and respiratory manifestations were largely improved. We retrospectively reviewed this and another six cases with CAJDM-associated ILD reported previously to better understand its clinical characteristics and effective management. Initial respiratory symptoms with rapid progression in patients presenting Gottron papules should be considered manifestations of CAJDM-associated ILD. We also found a combination of corticosteroids, IVIG and MMF to be an effective method of arresting the progress of CAJDM-associated ILD and improving the prognosis of the patients.

Abstract: The idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIMs)--DM and PM--have been historically defined by broad clinical and pathological criteria. These conditions affect both adults and children with clinical features including muscle weakness, skin disease, internal organ involvement and an association with cancer in adults. Using a clinico-serological approach, DM and PM can be defined into more homogeneous subsets. Over the last few years, myositis-specific autoantibodies (MSAs) have been better characterized including autoantibodies directed against the aminoacyl tRNA-synthetase enzymes, the signal-recognition particle and the Mi-2 protein. In addition, clinically significant novel autoantibodies--anti-CADM-140, anti-SAE (small ubiquitin-like modifier activating enzyme), anti-p155/140 and anti-p140--have been described in the adult and juvenile disease spectrum. MSAs are directed against cytoplasmic or nuclear components involved in key regulatory intracellular processes including protein synthesis, translocation and gene transcription. The striking association between unique serological profiles and distinct clinical phenotypes suggests that target autoantigens may play a role in disease induction and propagation. In this review, we discuss the clinical utility and pathogenic significance of MSAs in disease expression.

Abstract: Interstitial lung disease is commonly associated with the autoimmune inflammatory myopathies dermatomyositis and polymyositis and accounts for significant morbidity and mortality in these conditions. In the 35 years since the association between inflammatory myopathy and interstitial lung disease was initially described, there has been progress in diagnosing and treating this dis-order. Nevertheless, there remains much about pathogenesis and therapeutics to be learned. This review examines the changes in the understanding of this complex condition, highlighting recent advances and areas deserving of further study.
