Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to analyze relationships between receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B (RANKL), sclerostin and their gene polymorphisms with radiological progression in patients with early rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Patients with early RA (n = 407, symptomatic <1 year) (ARA criteria) examined radiologically at inclusion and after 24 months were consecutively included. Disease activity score and C-reactive protein were regularly recorded. Sclerostin, RANKL, and anti-CCP2 antibodies were analyzed in plasma at baseline using ELISAs. Data on gene polymorphism for sclerostin and RANKL were extracted from Immunochip analysis. Sex- and age-matched controls (n = 71) were identified from the Medical Biobank of Northern Sweden. The concentration of RANKL was significantly higher in patients compared with controls, median (IQR) 0.56 (0.9) nmol/L and 0.20 (0.25) nmol/L (p < 0.001), and in anti-CCP2-positive patients compared with sero-negative individuals. Sclerostin was significantly increased in female patients 0.59 (0.47-0.65) ng/mL compared with female controls 0.49 (0.4-0.65) ng/mL (p < 0.02). RANKL concentration was related to the Larsen score at baseline (p < 0.01), after 24 months (p < 0.001), and to radiological progression at 24 months (p < 0.001). Positivity of RANKL and anti-CCP2 yielded significant risk for progression with negativity for both as reference. No single nucleotide polymorphism encoding TNFSF11 or SOST was associated with increased concentrations of the factors. The concentration of RANKL was related to the Larsen score at baseline, at 24 months, and radiological progression at 24 months particularly in anti-CCP2-positive patients, while the concentration of sclerostin was unrelated to radiological findings.
