題目:Cardiovascular Protection of Hydroxychloroquine in Patients with Sjögren’s Syndrome

Abstract: Sjögren’s syndrome (SS) is a chronic systemic inflammation disease with clinical presentation
of dry eye, dry mouth, and polyarthralgia. Active inflammation is associated with an increased risk of
associated arterial stiffness or subclinical atherosclerosis-related cardiovascular events. We used the
longitudinal health insurance database of Taiwan, which includes one million participants, to evaluate
the relationship between the clinical medication of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and the development
of coronary artery disease (CAD). In total, 1674 patients with SS receiving HCQ medication were
included after exclusion for previous CAD. Altogether, 1142 SS patients were included for evaluation
after follow-up for more than one year. After adjusting for age, gender, medications, and chronic
comorbidities, a significantly decreased hazard ratio (HR) for developing CAD was found among SS
patients with higher medication possession ratio (MPR) of HCQ (HR = 0.49, 95% confidence interval,
CI: 0.26–0.94) when compared with low MPR of HCQ. A low HR for CAD was observed in SS patients
with a high cumulative dose of at least 100,267 mg of HCQ (HR = 0.25, 95% CI: 0.09–0.66). Long-term
HCQ therapy may decrease the HR of CAD in SS patients. The significant cardiovascular protective
effect of HCQ therapy was observed in our study.
