This study aimed to analyze the clinical features of anti-SAE antibodies in Chinese myositis patients in comparison with different cohorts. The anti-SAE antibodies were tested in myositis patients and in control subjects. Long-term follow-up was conducted on the antibody-positive patients. Anti-SAE antibodies were exclusively present in 12 out of 394 (3.0%) adult dermatomyositis (DM) patients. Of the anti-SAE-positive DM patients, 75% had distinctive diffuse dark-red or pigment-like skin rashes, and 67% of these patients experienced mild muscle weakness. Muscular biopsies showed mild pathological manifestations. Compared with the antibody-negative group, the average age of dermatomyositis onset in the antibody-positive group was higher, and dysphagia occurred more frequently noted (p = 0.012). Only 9 patients received follow-up, 7 experienced improvement after treatment. The anti-SAE antibody levels correlated with improved disease condition. The anti-SAE antibody was found exclusively in adult DM patients, occurring infrequently in Chinese patients. In addition to a diffuse dark-red or pigment-like skin rash and mild muscular weakness, common symptoms included propensity for developing dysphagia. Serum levels of the anti-SAE antibody correlated with myositis disease activity, and anti-SAE-positive patients were responsive to treatment. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Scientific Reports Springer Journals

Abstract

This study aimed to analyze the clinical features of anti-SAE antibodies in Chinese myositis patients in comparison with different cohorts. The anti-SAE antibodies were tested in myositis patients and in control subjects. Long-term follow-up was conducted on the antibody-positive patients. Anti-SAE antibodies were exclusively present in 12 out of 394 (3.0%) adult dermatomyositis (DM) patients. Of the anti-SAE-positive DM patients, 75% had distinctive diffuse dark-red or pigment-like skin rashes, and 67% of these patients experienced mild muscle weakness. Muscular biopsies showed mild pathological manifestations. Compared with the antibody-negative group, the average age of dermatomyositis onset in the antibody-positive group was higher, and dysphagia occurred more frequently noted (p = 0.012). Only 9 patients received follow-up, 7 experienced improvement after treatment. The anti-SAE antibody levels correlated with improved disease condition. The anti-SAE antibody was found exclusively in adult DM patients, occurring infrequently in Chinese patients. In addition to a diffuse dark-red or pigment-like skin rash and mild muscular weakness, common symptoms included propensity for developing dysphagia. Serum levels of the anti-SAE antibody correlated with myositis disease activity, and anti-SAE-positive patients were responsive to treatment.
