A long-term study of benorylate in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

Scandinavian Journal of Rheumatology. Supplement
H Müller-Fassbender, M Schattenkirchner


The analgesic and anti-inflammatory efficacy and adverse effects of benorylate were studied over a period of 6 months in 33 patients suffering from definite or classical rheumatoid arthritis. The average dose used was 6 g daily and examinations were made before treatment and at regular intervals during treatment to assess the clinical status of the patient, tolerance to the drug and any effect on blood, liver or renal function. Benorylate had a satisfactory effect in 28 patients. Additional treatment was requried in 3 cases and treatment discontinued in 2 cases. Distinct improvement of grip strength, morning stiffness and E.S.R. in 25 cases indicates the anti-inflammatory efficacy of benorylate. There were no signs of toxicity to bone marrow, liver or kidney. Severe side effects such as stomch ulcers, gastrointestinal bleeding and severe allergic complications were not observed. Side effects such as constipation and tinnitus that occurred at the beginning of treatment were mainly of a a passing nature and disappeared without a need to change therapy. Benorylate is suitable for the treatment of recent rheumatoid arthritis of a low to moderate activity as well as for long-term treatment.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
