at the Capital Institute of Pediatrics between February 2009 and December 2009.
of the Erasmus MC Sophia Children's Hospital, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, and colleagues conducted a study to evaluate JIA
disease activity after beginning treatment with etanercept and to identify characteristics associated with treatment response.
The incidence of JIA
is estimated at 2 to 20 cases per 100,000 children, with a prevalence of 16 to 150 cases per 100,000 children worldwide.
In this study, we aimed to determine the serum levels of IL-17A in children with JIA

The 102 teens with JIA
underwent follow-up assessment 1-3 years later, after they had received ongoing treatment for their JIA
Taking into consideration the above-mentioned relations, the present quantitative evaluation of both CS, as an early marker of aggrecan degradation, and chondroitin sulfate 846 epitope (CS846), as a biomarker of aggrecan synthesis, is an attempt at answering the question whether the therapy used in JIA
patients, whose purpose is to reduce the inflammatory and immunological parameters of the disease activity, simultaneously contributes to the normalization of biochemical changes in aggrecan and thus inhibits the dysfunction of articular cartilage.
This brief review summarises the available and relevant evidence on the diagnosis and management of JIA
in the South African (SA) context and is intended to assist the non-specialist in the identification, management and referral of these patients.
FMF and JIA
often involve the same population of children and may be confused at times.
