Statin exposure was significantly associated with histologically confirmed idiopathic inflammatory myositis.
Researchers identified independent predictors of short-term dermatomyositis- or polymyositis-related interstitial lung disease mortality.
Factors associated with favorable treatment responses to conventional therapy and tacrolimus in myositis-associated interstitial lung disease were examined in a retrospective cohort study.
The relationship between PM and ALS could indicate a common pathophysiology.
Patients with PM or DM had an increased prevalence of cardiac abnormalities, most commonly left ventricular diastolic dysfunction, compared with healthy controls.
