[Hydroxychloroquine to obtain pregnancy without adverse obstetrical events in primary antiphospholipid syndrome: French phase II multicenter randomized trial, HYDROSAPL]. Antiphospholipid syndrome is defined by the presence of thrombosis and/or obstetrical adverse events (≥3 recurrent early miscarriage or fetal death or a prematurity<34 weeks of gestation) associated with persistent antiphospholipid antibodies. The pregnancy outcome has been improved by the conventional treatment (aspirin 100mg (...) anticoagulant and APL triple positivity are considered as factors associated with unfavorable obstetrical outcome. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) has anti-inflammatory and anti-thrombotic properties. Studies in vitro have shown that HCQ is able to restore the placental expression of Annexin V, which has an anticoagulant effect and to prevent the placental injury induced by APL. HCQ used for lupus erythematosus decrease the thrombotic risk and its value for thrombotic APS has been raised in an open labelled French

5. A case of exogenous ochronosis associated with hydroxychloroquine (PubMed)

A case of exogenous ochronosis associated with hydroxychloroquine Exogenous ochronosis is characterized by hyperpigmented skin lesions that arise in association with local suppression of homogentisic acid oxidase enzyme. Although it generally develops in association with topical application of chemical agents, it can occasionally develop in association with antimalarial drugs. Here we present the case of a patient with rheumatoid arthritis who developed hyperpigmentation on the face and neck (...) regions during hydroxychloroquine treatment. Hydroxychloroquine is being widely used in rheumatology practice, and cutaneous hyperpigmentation may develop as an adverse effect. In the present case, we emphasize the potential underlying mechanisms through which it may cause cutaneous hyperpigmentation and determine the clinical and histopathological findings of exogenous ochronosis.

Pharmacokinetics and Bioequivalence Study of Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate Tablets in Chinese Healthy Volunteers by LC-MS/MS. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), 4-aminoquinoline, is an antimalarial drug and has become a basic therapy for rheumatic disease treatment. It can stabilize the condition of SLE patients and reduce the chances of patient relapse through its immunosuppressive function and antiinflammatory effects. This drug was absorbed completely and rapidly by oral administration, but has (...) to receive 0.2 g hydroxychloroquine sulfate tablets (0.1 g/piece) of the two formulations after a 3-month washout period then administered the alternate formulation.

Abstract Background : Osteoarthritis (OA) accounts for one of the most common causes of loss of work and disability in America. Traditional treatments are aimed (...) at symptomatic relief and maintaining functional capacity, but have not been shown to modify disease progression. Evidence for inflammatory and immune components in the development of OA lend support to expanding treatment options to potentially slow the disease and delay the need for invasive surgical intervention. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is known for its use as an antimalarial and as a DMARD for rheumatoid arthritis, but has also been considered an option for treatment resistant OA. Several studies have

Effects of hydroxychloroquine on symptomatic improvement in primary Sjögren syndrome: the JOQUER randomized clinical trial. Primary Sjögren syndrome is a systemic autoimmune disease characterized by mouth and eye dryness, pain, and fatigue.

Addition of infliximab compared with addition of sulfasalazine and hydroxychloroquine to methotrexate in patients with early rheumatoid arthritis (Swefot trial): 1-year results of a randomised trial. New treatment strategies for early rheumatoid arthritis are evolving rapidly. We aimed to compare addition of conventional disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (sulfasalazine and hydroxychloroquine) with addition of a tumour necrosis factor antagonist (infliximab) to methotrexate in patients (...) with early rheumatoid arthritis.We undertook a randomised trial in 15 rheumatology units in Sweden. We enrolled patients with early rheumatoid arthritis (symptom duration <1 year) and administered methotrexate (up to 20 mg per week). After 3-4 months, those who had not achieved low disease activity but who could tolerate methotrexate were randomly allocated by computer addition of either sulfasalazine and hydroxychloroquine or infliximab.
