Session Type: Poster Session (Monday)
Session Time: 9:00AM-11:00AM
Background/Purpose: To know the frequency of myositis specific antibodies (MSAs) and myositis associated antibodies( MAAs) and their relation with clinical features in patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathy(IIM) from a Registry of Argentina.
Methods: Adults with IIM were enrolled in a retrospective way.Demographics,clinical and laboratory features were registered.Diagnosis of interstitial lung disease (ILD) was based on physician review of chest-x-ray, CT and/or pulmonary function tests.ANA were done in 291 patients, anti-Ro in 283, anti-Pm-Scl in 205,anti-Jo-1 in 263. MSAs against PL-12, PL-7, SRP and Mi-2 were done in 190 and anti: EJ, OJ, TIF1ϒ, MDA5, SAE, NXP2 ,Ku and Ro 52 were studied in 83 patients. These antibodies were detected by Immunoblot and ANA by IFI. Statistics: descriptive and Chi-squared.Stata v.11
Results: Were included 304 patients, 217(71%) women, mean age at diagnosis 46±15 years. Caucasian 42%, mestizos 37% and amerindios 8%. DM was described in 43%, PM 31,5%,IBM 1,6%, antisynthetase syndrome(ASS) in 18%, CADM 3,6%,IMNM 1,6% and overlap myositis in 21,7%. Arthritis was present in 32%, RP 34% and ILD in 26,6%.
MAAs(+): ANA 62,5%, Ro 19% and Pm-Scl: 4,8%.
MSAs (+): Jo-1 16%, Mi-2 11%, SRP and Pl-7 2,6% each and Pl-12:1,5%. Other MSAs were studied in 83 patients: anti-MDA5 13,2%, TIF1ϒ 8,4%, NXP2 3,6%,anti-SAE1,2%.Two patients had OJ and EJ.
Anti-Jo-1(+) was found in 37/41(90%) PM patients (p< 0,000), arthritis in 56% vs 31% in Jo-1(-) (p=0,005), ILD in 73% vs 15% Jo-1(-) (p< 0,000).
Anti-Mi-2 was found in 20/21 DM patients, 12 caucasians and 6 mestizos, none had ILD or anti Ro+ when were compared con Mi-2(-) 0% vs 27,3%(p=0,002) and 0% vs 26% (p=0,008),respectively, all Mi-2+ had increase CK value (100%) vs 78% Mi-2(-) p < 0,000.
The presence of MDA5 was associated with arthritis 72% vs 29%(p=0,01), ILD 63,6% vs 19,4% (p=0,005) and normal CK values 91% vs 16,6%(p< 0,000) when it was compared with patients without the antiboby. Anti Tif1 was present in 7/83 patients (8.4%),5 had DM and 2 had CADM, 1 patient had cancer.
Conclusion: Anti-Jo-1,anti-MDA5 and anti- Mi-2 were the most frequent MSAs found in our population, followed by anti- TIF1γ.
Anti-Mi-2 was present in DM while anti-Jo-1 was frequent in antisynthetasa syndrome with ILD and mainly in PM patients.
Anti-MDA5 was seen in DM with normal CK and also related to ILD and arthritis.
All patients anti-Tif1γ positive had DM and only one had cancer.
There are differences in the frequency of MSAs probably related with ethnic background or geography but the clinical phenotypes remains similar.
