The Heart in Rheumatic Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases Book Review:

The prevalence of autoimmune diseases and rheumatic conditions is constantly increasing. Autoimmune diseases affect approximately 7-10% of the population of the United States, while more than 50,000,000 American adults suffer from some type of arthritis. The Heart in Rheumatic, Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases examines the complex mechanisms relating to cardiac diseases from a pathophysiological and clinical point of view. Autoimmune rheumatic diseases can affect the coronary vessels, myocardium, pericardium, heart valves and the conduction system. The diagnosis of these unique cardiac complications necessitates medical awareness and a high index of suspicion. Increased risk of advanced atherosclerosis plays a pivotal role in the development of cardiac diseases in systemic, rheumatic and autoimmune illnesses. Yet, other complex immune medicated mechanisms may contribute to the pathogenesis. Patients' optimal care requires coordination between the primary caregiver, the rheumatologist, immunologist and cardiologist. Screening for cardiovascular risk factors, recognition of high-risk patients and identification of subclinical cardiac conditions are of great importance. Moreover, regulation of inflammation, as well as abnormal immune responses and the initiation of early treatments should be the focus of patient management. A continuous attempt to identify novel therapeutic targets and change the natural history of the underlying disease and its cardiac manifestations is in progress. The book aims at providing the readers with a state of the art collection of up to date information regarding clinically important topics based on experts' perspectives. This book was a result of an extended coordinated collaboration of one-hundred and fifty-four distinguished scientists from thirty-one countries around the globe. A review of common, as well as unusual (yet clinically significant) medical cardiac complications of prevalent rheumatic, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. Focuses on aspects of pathophysiological processes, clinical presentations, screening tests, prognostic implications and novel therapeutic approaches. Presents an up-to-date “level of evidence and “strengths of recommendations for suggested therapies and reviews all randomized clinical trials, meta-analyses and other supporting published clinical findings.

Classic Papers in Rheumatology Book Review:

While an emphasis on the new is vital to any science, the relevance or importance of new discoveries cannot truly be appreciated without a strong sense of the framework of a discipline, and of the ideas that helped to shape it. With this in mind, the editors of this book have attempted to create a canon of texts that formed the basis of rheumatology. Experts on the diagnosis and management of the various rheumatological conditions have chosen what they consider to be the key papers in their respective domains. Every paper is carefully described and evaluated by its strengths, its weaknesses, and its contribution to the field. Papers have been chosen that define new diseases or treatments, that have changed our whole way of thinking, or that have simply stood the test of time. The editors hope that the papers profiled in this volume will stimulate debate, encourage readers to seek out the original texts, and inspire the writers of the classics of the 21st century.

Reactive Arthritis Book Review:

Reactive arthritis is a self limiting condition that is a member of the seronegative spondyloarthropathies, which can follow a recurrent and chronic course. It is also categorized as a oculomucocutaneous disease. Reactive arthritis most commonly affects young men with a triad of symptoms including arthritis, urethritis and conjunctivitis or uveitis. The exact cause of Reactive arthritis is unknown, but it is believed to be the result of an infection. Specifically, the infection is thought to be precipitated by either Gram negative caused by Shigella, Salmonella, Campylobacter, Yersinia, or nongonococcal urethritis caused by Chamydia tracomatis. An association exists between spondyloarthritis, Reactive arthritis, HLA-B27 and anterior uveitis. Eighty four percent of HLA-B27 positive patients with Acute Anterior Uveitis have other B27-associated disease, specifically Reactive arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis or psoriatic arthritis. About 20-30% of patients with Reiter's syndrome develop acute anterior uveitis. The bilateral conjunctivitis seen in that condition has an acute onset and may be is observed before or at the onset of arthritis. No specific treatment currently exists for Reactive arthritis. Most of Reactive arthritis patients show a recovery from their symptoms within a few weeks. Currently, anti inflammatory agents are the drugs of choice for therapy. Corticosteroids, Anti-TNF agents and physical therapy are also recommended.

The Microbiome in Rheumatic Diseases and Infection Book Review:

This book discusses the role of the microbiome in rheumatic diseases and details its implications for patient treatment. Recently, with technological advances, there has been significant research into the microbiome. This has enabled us to more profoundly understand its role in our immune system maturation as well as the role played by microorganisms in autoimmunity and the deeply related rheumatic diseases. This book comprehensively explains the emerging microbiome research through the interrelationships of biomedical sciences, including: immunology, microbiology, bioinformatics, and, with special emphasis, the clinical aspect of rheumatology. It examines the interplay between infectious organisms and major autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, juvenile arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and vasculitis, and explains how to apply that knowledge to diagnostic techniques and treatment decisions. The international team of expert authors provides insight into current therapies and future interventions specifically targeting the microbiota and explores the impact of our deeper understanding on enhancing personalized medicine. The Microbiome in Rheumatic Diseases and Infection is an essential resource for rheumatologists, pediatricians, internists, microbiologists, and critical care providers caring for children and adults with rheumatic diseases.

Immunology of Psoriatic Disease Book Review:

Psoriasis is a chronically relapsing inflammatory skin disorder affecting about 2% of the worldwide population. The disease is associated with important systemic manifestations, including cardiovascular comorbidities and metabolic syndrome. In addition, about 30% of patients develop joint inflammation known as psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Our knowledge on the pathogenesis of psoriasis has dramatically expanded in the last decade, suggesting the existence (or co-existence) of both auto-immune and auto-inflammatory components. Skin lesions develop from a complex interplay between keratinocytes, vascular endothelium, dendritic cells, and T cells, generating a self-sustaining inflammatory cycle. Within this cycle, epidermal CD8+ T lymphocytes specific for self-antigens may represent the major autoimmune mechanism. Despite the recent progress in the comprehension of the pathogenesis of psoriasis many questions remain open, ranging from the plaque-initiating events to the characterization of the autoimmune /autoinflammatory components of the disease. The mechanisms that link cutaneous psoriasis to its extra-cutaneous and systemic manifestations also remain vague. In this Research Topic we invited top scientists to summarize the front-line research in the field of immunology of cutaneous psoriasis and its systemic and joint manifestations. Our intention was to integrate the pillar concepts of psoriasis immunopathology with the most novel insights, aiming at providing an advanced view of this rapidly evolving and fascinating field.
