Abstract
Background and objective

Multiple studies have found a direct relationship between leptin concentrations and disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis.

Patients and methods

We studied 77 patients with the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis; the leptin determination was through an enzyme immunoassay. Disease activity was assessed by the DAS-28 CRP. A multivariate logistic regression model was used to determine the association between significant variables and leptin concentrations.

Results

40.3% of the patients were in remission, 41.6% were mildly active, 11.7% were moderately active and 6.5% were severely active. The results show an independent association between higher concentrations of leptin and disease activity (OR 1.7; 95% CI 1.4–3.2; p 0.03), the number of swollen joints (OR 4.6; 95% CI 1.7–8.3; p 0.000), the number of painful joints (OR 3.4; 95% CI 1.6–4.6; p 0.000), and the presence of metabolic syndrome (OR 1.3; 95% IC 1.2–1.9; p 0.045).

Conclusion

The data suggest that serum leptin is elevated in patients with active RA.

Resumen
Introducción y objetivo

Múltiples estudios han encontrado una relación directa entre las concentraciones de leptina y la actividad de la enfermedad en artritis reumatoide.

Pacientes y métodos

Se estudiaron 77 pacientes con artritis reumatoide, la determinación de la leptina fue a través de inmunoanálisis enzimático. Se evaluó la actividad de la enfermedad mediante el DAS-28 PCR. Se realizó un modelo de regresión logística multivariante para determinar la asociación entre las variables significativas y las concentraciones de leptina.

Resultados

El 40,3% de los pacientes estaban en remisión, el 41,6% actividad leve, el 11,7% actividad moderada y el 6,5% actividad grave. Se encontró una relación independiente entre mayores concentraciones de leptina y la actividad de la enfermedad (RR 1,7; IC al 95%: 1,4-3,2; p=0,03), el número de articulación tumefactas (RR 4,6; IC al 95%: 1,7-8,3; p=0,000), el número de articulaciones dolorosas (RR 3,4; IC al 95%: 1,6-4,6; p=0,000) y a presencia de síndrome metabólico (RR 1,3; IC al 95%: 1,2-1,9; p=0,045).

Conclusiones

Los datos obtenidos sugieren que la leptina sérica está elevada en pacientes con AR activa.
