Gene context of Periarthritis

  • Oxaprozin's strong analgesic qualities are particularly useful in painful musculoskeletal conditions such as periarthritis of the shoulder, since it exhibits actions such as inhibition of COX-1 and COX-2 isoenzymes, inhibition of nuclear translocation of NF-kappaB and of metalloproteases, and modulates the endogenous cannabinoid system [15].
  • HLA typing of 38 patients suffering from calcific periarthritis (hydroxyapatite rheumatism) showed an increased prevalence of HLA A2 (66 per cent) and HLA BW35 (34 per cent) vs 44 per cent and 19 per cent in 591 controls (p less than 0.01 and p less than 0.03 respectively) [16].
  • Acute carpal tunnel syndrome caused by calcific periarthritis of the wrist [17].
  • This randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trial was carried out to assess the efficacy and tolerability of a new, locally acting, transcutaneous flurbiprofen preparation (flurbiprofen LATTM, Boots Company PLC) in the treatment of scapulohumeral periarthritis [18].
  • Acute calcific periarthritis associated with transient hypocalcaemia secondary to hypoparathyroidism [19].
