Amyloid Neuropathies, Familial: Inherited disorders of the peripheral nervous system associated with the deposition of AMYLOID in nerve tissue. The different clinical types based on symptoms correspond to the presence of a variety of mutations in several different proteins including transthyretin (PREALBUMIN); APOLIPOPROTEIN A-I; and GELSOLIN.Amyloid Neuropathies: Disorders of the peripheral nervous system associated with the deposition of AMYLOID in nerve tissue. Familial, primary (nonfamilial), and secondary forms have been described. Some familial subtypes demonstrate an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance. Clinical manifestations include sensory loss, mild weakness, autonomic dysfunction, and CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1349)Prealbumin: A tetrameric protein, molecular weight between 50,000 and 70,000, consisting of 4 equal chains, and migrating on electrophoresis in 3 fractions more mobile than serum albumin. Its concentration ranges from 7 to 33 per cent in the serum, but levels decrease in liver disease.Diflunisal: A salicylate derivative and anti-inflammatory analgesic with actions and side effects similar to those of ASPIRIN.Amyloidosis: A group of sporadic, familial and/or inherited, degenerative, and infectious disease processes, linked by the common theme of abnormal protein folding and deposition of AMYLOID. As the amyloid deposits enlarge they displace normal tissue structures, causing disruption of function. Various signs and symptoms depend on the location and size of the deposits.Amyloid: A fibrous protein complex that consists of proteins folded into a specific cross beta-pleated sheet structure. This fibrillar structure has been found as an alternative folding pattern for a variety of functional proteins. Deposits of amyloid in the form of AMYLOID PLAQUES are associated with a variety of degenerative diseases. The amyloid structure has also been found in a number of functional proteins that are unrelated to disease.Liver Transplantation: The transference of a part of or an entire liver from one human or animal to another.Cardiomyopathies: A group of diseases in which the dominant feature is the involvement of the CARDIAC MUSCLE itself. Cardiomyopathies are classified according to their predominant pathophysiological features (DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY; HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY; RESTRICTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY) or their etiological/pathological factors (CARDIOMYOPATHY, ALCOHOLIC; ENDOCARDIAL FIBROELASTOSIS).Nervous System Diseases: Diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system. This includes disorders of the brain, spinal cord, cranial nerves, peripheral nerves, nerve roots, autonomic nervous system, neuromuscular junction, and muscle.Polyneuropathies: Diseases of multiple peripheral nerves simultaneously. Polyneuropathies usually are characterized by symmetrical, bilateral distal motor and sensory impairment with a graded increase in severity distally. The pathological processes affecting peripheral nerves include degeneration of the axon, myelin or both. The various forms of polyneuropathy are categorized by the type of nerve affected (e.g., sensory, motor, or autonomic), by the distribution of nerve injury (e.g., distal vs. proximal), by nerve component primarily affected (e.g., demyelinating vs. axonal), by etiology, or by pattern of inheritance.Mass Spectrometry: An analytical method used in determining the identity of a chemical based on its mass using mass analyzers/mass spectrometers.SwedenFaculty, Medical: The teaching staff and members of the administrative staff having academic rank in a medical school.Faculty: The teaching staff and members of the administrative staff having academic rank in an educational institution.Tandem Mass Spectrometry: A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.Paraphilias: Disorders that include recurrent, intense sexually arousing fantasies, sexual urges, or behaviors generally involving nonhuman objects, suffering of oneself or partners, or children or other nonconsenting partners. (from DSM-IV, 1994)Faculty, Dental: The teaching staff and members of the administrative staff having academic rank in a dental school.Faculty, Nursing: The teaching staff and members of the administrative staff having academic rank in a nursing school.Spectrometry, Mass, Electrospray Ionization: A mass spectrometry technique used for analysis of nonvolatile compounds such as proteins and macromolecules. The technique involves preparing electrically charged droplets from analyte molecules dissolved in solvent. The electrically charged droplets enter a vacuum chamber where the solvent is evaporated. Evaporation of solvent reduces the droplet size, thereby increasing the coulombic repulsion within the droplet. As the charged droplets get smaller, the excess charge within them causes them to disintegrate and release analyte molecules. The volatilized analyte molecules are then analyzed by mass spectrometry.Spectrometry, Mass, Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption-Ionization: A mass spectrometric technique that is used for the analysis of large biomolecules. Analyte molecules are embedded in an excess matrix of small organic molecules that show a high resonant absorption at the laser wavelength used. The matrix absorbs the laser energy, thus inducing a soft disintegration of the sample-matrix mixture into free (gas phase) matrix and analyte molecules and molecular ions. In general, only molecular ions of the analyte molecules are produced, and almost no fragmentation occurs. This makes the method well suited for molecular weight determinations and mixture analysis.

Capture of a dimeric intermediate during transthyretin amyloid formation. (1/93)

Point mutations in the human plasma protein transthyretin are associated with the neurological disorder familial amyloidosis with polyneuropathy type 1. The disease is characterized by amyloid fibril deposits causing damage at the site of deposition. Substitution of two amino acids in the hydrophobic core of transthyretin lead to a mutant that was very prone to form amyloid. In addition, this mutant has also been shown to induce a toxic response on a neuroblastoma cell line. Renaturation of the transthyretin mutant at low temperature facilitated the isolation of an amyloid-forming intermediate state having the apparent size of a dimer. Increasing the temperature effectively enhanced the rate of interconversion from a partly denatured protein to mature amyloid. Using circular dichroism the beta-sheet content of the formed mature fibrils was significantly lower than that of the native fold of transthyretin. Morphology studies using electron microscopy also indicated a temperature-dependent transformation from amorphous aggregates toward mature amyloid fibrils. In addition, 1-anilino-8-naphtalenesulfonate fluorescence studies suggested the loss of the thyroxin-binding channel within both the isolated intermediate and the mature fibrils.  (+info)

Deposition of transthyretin in early stages of familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy: evidence for toxicity of nonfibrillar aggregates. (2/93)

Familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by extracellular deposition of transthyretin (TTR) amyloid fibrils, particularly in the peripheral nervous system. No systematic immunohistochemical data exists relating TTR deposition with FAP progression. We assessed nerves from FAP patients in different stages of disease progression (FAP 0 to FAP 3) for TTR deposition by immunohistochemistry, and for the presence of amyloid fibrils by Congo Red staining. The nature of the deposited material was further studied by electron microscopy. We observed that early in FAP (FAP 0), TTR is already deposited in an aggregated nonfibrillar form, negative by Congo Red staining. This suggested that in vivo, preamyloidogenic forms of TTR exist in the nerve, in a stage before fibril formation. Cytotoxicity of nonfibrillar TTR was assessed in nerves of different FAP stages by immunohistochemistry for macrophage colony-stimulating factor. FAP 0 patients already presented increased axonal expression of macrophage colony-stimulating factor that was maintained in all other stages, in sites related to TTR deposition. Toxicity of synthetic TTR fibrils formed in vitro at physiological pH was studied on a Schwannoma cell line by caspase-3 activation assays and showed that early aggregates but not mature fibrils are toxic to cells. Taken together, these results show that nonfibrillar cytotoxic deposits occur in early stages of FAP.  (+info)

Myocardial muscarinic receptor upregulation and normal response to isoproterenol in denervated hearts by familial amyloid polyneuropathy. (3/93)

BACKGROUND: Patients with familial amyloid polyneuropathy, a rare hereditary form of amyloidosis, have progressive autonomic neuropathy. The disease usually does not induce heart failure but is associated with sudden death, conduction disturbances, and an increased risk of complications during anesthesia. Although cardiac sympathetic denervation has been clearly demonstrated, the postsynaptic status of the cardiac autonomic nervous system remains unelucidated. METHODS AND RESULTS: Twenty-one patients were studied (age, 39+/-11 years; normal coronary arteries; left ventricular ejection fraction 68+/-9%). To evaluate the density and affinity constants of myocardial muscarinic receptors, PET with (11)C-MQNB (methylquinuclidinyl benzilate), a specific hydrophilic antagonist, was used. Cardiac beta-receptor functional efficiency was studied by the heart rate (HR) response to intravenous infusion of isoproterenol (5 minutes after 2 mg of atropine, 5, 10, and 15 ng/kg per minute during 5 minutes per step). The mean muscarinic receptor density was higher in patients than in control subjects (B'(max), 35.5+/-8.9 versus 26.1+/-6.7 pmol/mL, P=0.003), without change in receptor affinity. The increase in HR after injection of atropine as well as of MQNB was lower in patients compared with control subjects despite a similar basal HR (DeltaHR after atropine, 11+/-21% versus 62+/-17%; P<0.001), consistent with parasympathetic denervation. Incremental infusion of isoproterenol induced a similar increase in HR in patients and control subjects. CONCLUSIONS: Cardiac autonomic denervation in familial amyloid polyneuropathy results in an upregulation of myocardial muscarinic receptors but without change in cardiac beta-receptor responsiveness to catecholamines.  (+info)

Results of liver transplantation for familial amyloid polyneuropathy type I in Brazil. (4/93)

Familial amyloid polyneuropathy type I (FAP-I) is an inherited amyloidosis secondary to systemic deposition of amyloid fibrils containing mutant transthyretin (TTR) variants. The disease has a progressive clinical course and is usually fatal 10 years after its onset. TTR is mainly produced in hepatocytes, and liver transplantation (LT) has been proposed as an effective treatment for FAP-I. The aim of this study is to evaluate the results of LT for FAP-I in Brazil and analyze prognostic factors associated with survival after surgery. Twenty-four patients (median age, 36 years; range, 25 to 52 years) who underwent LT with the diagnosis of FAP-I were evaluated. Surgery was uneventful in all but six patients who died of complications of primary liver nonfunction (n = 1), cardiogenic shock (n = 1), sepsis (n = 3), and hepatic artery thrombosis (n = 3). Overall 1- and 5-year survival rates were 70% and 58%, respectively. Most patients had stabilization or improvement of symptoms after a median follow-up of 36 months (range, 14 to 82 months). Survivors had a shorter disease duration before LT (median, 6 years; range, 2 to 17 years v 9 years; range, 7 to 12 years; P =.02), greater albumin levels (median, 4 g/dL; range, 3 to 4.7 g/dL v 3.6 g/dL; range, 2.6 to 4.1 g/dL; P =.03), and greater modified body mass index scores (median, 735; range, 502 to 1,432 v 659; range, 411 to 803; P =.04) compared with nonsurvivors. However, only disease duration and albumin levels were independently associated with survival in multivariate analysis. In conclusion, LT is an effective therapy for FAP-I. Mortality after surgery is associated with poor nutritional status and long-standing disease before LT. Thus, LT should be performed as early as possible after the onset of FAP-I symptoms to avoid major disability and improve survival.  (+info)

Long-term follow-up of survival of liver transplant recipients with familial amyloid polyneuropathy (Portuguese type). (5/93)

Portuguese type familial amyloid polyneuropathy is a dominantly inherited neuropathic amyloidosis caused by a mutant transthyretin (TTR). Because TTR is produced mainly by the liver, liver transplantation (LT) abolishes production of the amyloidogenic variant TTR. To date, the procedure appears to halt the progress of the disease. However, long-term outcome is unknown. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the survival of our initial group of unselected liver transplant recipients with FAP. Seventy patients, 51 transplant recipients and a control group of 19 nontransplantation patients, with disease onset before the age of 55 years were included on the study. Transplant recipients were divided into two categories: (1) early series, with patients followed up for 5 years or longer, and (2) new series, with patients followed up for 1 to 5 years. Nonparametric statistical methods were used. Binary regression analyses were performed by stepwise logistic regression and Cox proportional hazard regression. Survival analysis was performed using Kaplan-Meier analysis, the Cox-Mantel test. Survival analyses and Cox proportional hazard regression analysis were performed from disease onset, not from LT. Significantly decreased survival was noted for transplant recipients with a modified body mass index (mBMI) less than 600 compared with the control group (P < .05). A significant difference in survival also was observed between transplant recipients with an mBMI greater than 600 at the time of LT compared with those with an mBMI less than 600 (P < .02). mBMI and age at LT had a significant impact on survival; whereas late deaths were related to age at LT, early deaths were related to mBMI. The cumulative 10-year survival rate after disease onset was 94% in the new series, with one early death (< 6 months) after LT, compared with a 78% survival rate and eight early deaths in the early series (P = .1).  (+info)

Effect of the intestinal flora on amyloid deposition in a transgenic mouse model of familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy. (6/93)

Familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP) is a hereditary disease characterized by the systemic accumulation of amyloid fibrils. A mutant transthyretin (TTR) gene is mainly responsible for the disease. However, the variable age of onset and low penetrance might be due to environmental factors, one of which is the intestinal flora. Three types of intestinal flora were introduced into a transgenic (Tg) mouse FAP model, 6.0-hMet30. The CV1 and CV2 group transgenic mice were transferred with the intestinal flora from two different mouse facilities housed under conventional conditions, and the SPF group transgenic mice were kept under specific pathogen free conditions in our facility. All the mice were maintained under controlled temperature, humidity and bacterial conditions. Over a period of 28 months, amyloid was not deposited in the SPF and CV1 groups. In contrast, amyloid was deposited in the esophagus and small intestine of two of the three CV2 mice at 18 months. Many neutrophils infiltrated the lesions. The numbers of tissue neutrophils were higher in the CV2 group than in the SPF and CV1 groups at 18 months. The CV2 flora included fewer gram-positive anaerobic cocci as well as higher proportions of yeasts, staphylococci and enterobacteriaceae compared with the SPF and CV1 flora. These findings suggest that the intestinal flora plays an important role in amyloid deposition.  (+info)

Evidence for early cytotoxic aggregates in transgenic mice for human transthyretin Leu55Pro. (7/93)

Familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP) is a lethal autosomal dominant disorder characterized by systemic extracellular deposition of transthyretin (TTR) amyloid fibrils. Several groups have generated transgenic mice carrying human TTR Val30Met, the most common mutation in FAP. To study amyloidogenicity and cytotoxicity of different TTRs, we produced transgenic mice expressing human TTR Leu55Pro, one of the most aggressive FAP-related mutations. TTR deposition and presence of amyloid fibrils was investigated and compared to animals carrying the human TTR Val30Met gene kept under the same conditions. Deposition in a C57BL/6J background (TTR-Leu55Pro mice) and in a TTR-null background [TTR-Leu55Pro X TTR-knockout (KO) mice] was compared. Animals in a C57BL/6J background presented early (1 to 3 months) nonfibrillar TTR deposition but amyloid was absent. In a TTR-null background, presence of amyloid fibrils was detected starting at 4 to 8 months with a particular involvement of the gastrointestinal tract and skin. This data suggested that TTR homotetramers are more prone to fibril formation than TTR murine wild-type/human mutant heterotetramers. The nature of the deposited material was further investigated by immunocytochemistry. Both amorphous aggregates and small TTR fibrils were present in TTR-Leu55Pro X TTR-KO transgenics. We observed that these TTR deposits mimic the toxic effect of TTR deposits in FAP: animals with TTR deposition, present approximately twofold increased levels of nitrotyrosine in sites related to deposition. The TTR-Leu55Pro X TTR-KO mice here described are an important tool for the dual purpose of investigating factors involved in amyloidogenesis and in cytotoxicity of deposited TTR.  (+info)

Familial ATTR amyloidosis: microalbuminuria as a predictor of symptomatic disease and clinical nephropathy. (8/93)

BACKGROUND: Portuguese type familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP) is a neuropathic amyloidosis caused by a mutant transthyretin (TTR). Varying degrees of renal involvement have been reported. Our aim was to assess the value of microalbuminuria (MA) for predicting clinical neurological disease and overt nephropathy in TTR-related amyloidosis. METHODS: All subjects had the TTR Val30Met mutation, and were recruited between 1993 and 1999. We have prospectively evaluated 22 asymptomatic gene carriers (7 male, 15 female; mean age 41.6+/-9.6 years) and 32 patients with neuropathy (14 male, 18 female; 36.8+/-8.8 years, on average, 33.0+/-9.3 years at the onset of neuropathy). We measured urinary albumin excretion every year, if asymptomatic, or every 6 months if already affected. Kidney biopsies were performed in patients with normal urinary albumin excretion, MA, and overt nephropathy, respectively. RESULTS: In asymptomatic carriers, persistent MA was detected in eight (36%) subjects. The presence of MA in asymptomatic gene carriers, compared with those having normal urinary albumin excretion, conferred a 4.8-fold risk of developing neuropathy, usually within the subsequent 3 years. Once neurological signs appeared, nephropathy, manifested as MA, progressed to overt nephropathy in one-half of subjects. In patients with neuropathy, 24 (75%) had MA during follow-up: evolution towards clinical renal disease occurred in 14 (58%) and renal failure occurred in five (21%), always after a course of MA. Proteinuria or renal failure without prior persistent MA were never observed in the present patient cohort. Histopathological evaluation did not reveal glomerular lesions other than amyloid deposits to explain abnormal urinary albumin excretion. The amount of mesangial and vascular-pole amyloid deposits was correlated with the degree of albuminuria. CONCLUSIONS: Microalbuminuria represents the first stage of clinical TTR amyloid nephropathy and is premonitory of neuropathy. Its presence identifies a subgroup of patients who are more prone to develop overt nephropathy. Screening of MA may be important to assess disease onset and to recommend liver transplantation in individuals at risk.  (+info)

Familial Amyloid Polyneuropathy (FAP) is a rare, hereditary disease caused by mutations in the transthyretin (TTR) protein. TTR is made by the liver and secreted into the blood. TTR mutations cause it to misfold and deposit in multiple organs causing FAP.. IONIS-TTR Rx is an antisense drug that is designed to decrease the amount of mutant and normal TTR made by the liver. It is predicted that decreasing the amount of TTR protein will result in a decrease in the formation of TTR deposits, and thus slow or stop disease progression.. The purpose of this study is to determine if IONIS-TTR Rx can slow or stop the nerve damage caused by TTR deposits. This study will enroll late Stage 1 and early Stage 2 FAP patients. Patients will receive either IONIS-TTR Rx or placebo for 65 weeks. ...

Background Hereditary transthyretin amyloid (ATTRm) amyloidosis is a systemic disease mainly affecting the peripheral nervous system and the heart. The disease is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner with a varying penetrance. It is caused by mutations in the transthyretin (TTR) gene. Today more than 100 disease causing mutations are known. The V30M mutation that is endemic in northern Sweden is the best studied and comprises the majority of the reported disease cases in the world. In ATTRm amyloidosis caused by the V30M mutation two distinct sub populations are seen, one with disease onset early in life and a mainly neuropathic disease and the other with late onset disease and both neuropathic disease and a progressive cardiomyopathy. These phenotypical findings have in Swedish patients been tied to differences in amyloid fibril composition. Generally, patients with early onset disease have amyloid fibrils containing only full length transthyretin (type B) whereas patients with late onset ...
Liver transplantation (LT) is a potentially curative treatment for hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis, of which familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP) is the most common form in Sweden. This study investigated the long-term development in heart rate variability (HRV) after LT in Swedish FAP patients. HRV was analyzed before LT, and during a first (,40 months) and a second (,40 months) follow-up recording after transplantation, respectively. Power spectrum analysis was performed on 2-min sequences in the supine position and after passive tilt, after careful identification of patients with arrhythmia. Data were obtained from 33 patients, but 18 patients had developed cardiac arrhythmia or were pacemaker-treated (4 before LT and 14 after LT) and three patients had not performed the first follow-up recording. In the remaining 12 patients, HRV decreased between the pretransplant evaluation and the first follow-up, thereafter no significant changes were found. In conclusion, our study showed that the ...

Results Women had a significantly higher AO, either for daughters (mean: 33.70, SD: 6.84) vs sons (29.43, 6.08); or mothers (39.57, 11.75) vs fathers (35.62, 11.62). Also, 291 pairs showed marked anticipation (≥10 years); the transmitting parent was the mother in 203 pairs. Mother-son pairs showed larger anticipation (10.43, 9.34), while father-daughter pairs showed only a residual anticipation (1.23, 9.77). Gender of offspring and parents was highly significant (with no interaction). To remove possible biases, we repeated analyses: (1) excluding the proband; (2) removing pairs with simultaneous onset; and (3) excluding offspring born after 1960. Anticipation was found in all subsamples, with the same trend for a parent-of-origin effect. Noteworthy, parents with AO ≤40 years never had offspring with AO ≥50.. ...
Their purpose is to prevent the formation of new deposits of amyloidosis by stabilising Transthyretin and blocking its production. The treatments available so far are only able to slow down the progression and even to stop it but not to get rid of the symptoms already present.. a) Liver transplant The purpose of a liver transplant is to remove the main organ producing abnormal TTR protein even if the liver is functioning perfectly well otherwise. A liver transplant is a complicated operation that needs to be performed in a specialized centre.. This treatment has been offered to over 2000 patients worldwide. It has been effective in stopping the progression of the disease in a large majority of cases (70%) treated in their early stages. It is not advised for patients who developed the disease late in life or for carriers of a certain type of mutation. It cannot be performed on patients over 70 years old.. In spite of the transplant, the disease sometimes continues to develop in the nervous system ...

Transthyretin familial amyloid polyneuropathy (TTR-FAP) is a progressive, fatal, inherited disorder first identified in Portugal and now recognized in all continents. Over the past decade, thanks to the availability of the genetic test, our knowledge on the range of clinical expressions of this disorder has expanded, including different patterns and progression rates of the neuropathy, as well as aspects of the cardiomyopathy, which can be prominent. In the mean time, new tools are being developed to detect earlier TTR amyloid deposition such as cardiac scintigraphy with technetium-labelled pyrophosphate tracers or small nerve fiber alterations from skin biopsies, or using neurophysiological approaches as well as magnetic resonance neurography (MRN ...

Could the amyloid hypothesis have scored its first success? The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is poised to approve a drug that acts by blocking amyloid formation in a rare inherited disease, familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP). The disease attacks the peripheral nervous system, kidneys, and heart, robbing people of the ability to walk and leading to death within 10 years. FAP is caused by mutations in transthyretin that make the proteins normal tetrameric state unstable, causing it to fall apart into monomers that then clump into amyloid (see, e.g., Colon et al., 1996). The new drug, tafamidis, acts by stabilizing the transthyretin tetramer, preventing it from dissociating. In clinical trials, people who took the drug maintained whatever leg strength and sensation they started with, showing only minimal deterioration over 30 months, and their autonomic nervous system function seemed to improve. The outcomes are in sharp contrast to the normal rapid deterioration seen with the disease. If ...
The liver has become an increasingly interesting target for oligonucleotide therapy. Mutations of the gene encoding transthyretin (TTR), expressed in vast amounts by the liver, result in a complex degenerative disease, termed familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP). Misfolded variants of TTR are linked to the establishment of extracellular protein deposition in various tissues, including the heart and the peripheral nervous system. Recent progress in the chemistry and formulation of antisense (ASO) and small interfering RNA (siRNA) designed for a knockdown of TTR mRNA in the liver has allowed to address the issue of gene-specific molecular therapy in a clinical setting of FAP. The two therapeutic oligonucleotides bind to RNA in a sequence specific manner but exploit different mechanisms. Here we describe major developments that have led to the advent of therapeutic oligonucleotides for treatment of TTR-related disease.. ...
Per Hammarstr�m, Frank Schneider, and Jeffery W. Kelly http://sageke.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/abstract/sageke;2001/2/or18 Abstract: Science 293, 2459-2462 (2001).. The transthyretin (TTR) amyloid diseases, representative of numerous misfolding disorders, are of considerable interest because there are mutations that cause or suppress disease. The Val30>Met30 (V30M) TTR mutation is the most prevalent cause of familial amyloid polyneuropathy in heterozygotes, whereas a Thr119>Met119 (T119M) mutation on the second TTR allele protects V30M carriers from disease. Here, we show that the incorporation of one or more T119M TTR subunits into a predominantly V30M tetramer strongly stabilized the mixed tetramer against dissociation. Dissociation is required for amyloid formation, so these findings provide a molecular explanation for intragenic trans-suppression of amyloidosis. The data also suggest a potential therapeutic strategy, provide insight into tissue-specific deposition and amyloid composition, ...

OBJECTIVE: To systematically study peripheral nerve morphology in patients with transthyretin (TTR) amyloidosis and TTR gene mutation carriers using high-resolution ultrasonography (US). METHODS: In this prospective cross-sectional study we took a structured history, performed neurological examination, and measured peripheral nerve cross-sectional areas (CSAs) bilaterally at 28 standard locations using US. Demographic and US findings were compared to controls. RESULTS: Peripheral nerve CSAs were significantly larger in 33 patients with familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP) compared to 50 controls, most dramatically at the common entrapment sites (median nerve at the wrist, ulnar nerve at the elbow), and in the proximal nerve segments (median nerve in the upper arm, sciatic nerve in the thigh ...

Alnylams patisiran may soon become the standard of care in treating hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis in patients with widespread neuropathy.. In phase 3 trials, patisiran significantly reduced the progression of neuropathy and it improved patients quality of life. Specifically, 225 patients were enrolled in a study comparing patisiran to placebo. Patients were treated for 18 months and patients receiving patisiran experienced a highly significant reduction in neuropathy versus placebo, as measured by a composite neuropathy score, with a p-value of 0.00001. Patients also experienced an improvement in the quality of life as measured by a questionnaire.. Despite worry over safety risks associated with interfering with RNA, patisirans safety profile doesnt appear to raise a lot of eyebrows. The rate of adverse events in the patisiran and placebo arms was similar (96.6% and 97.4%, respectively), as was the rate of serious adverse events (36.5% and 40.3%, respectively).. ...

A 67-year-old man presented with neuropathy. Five years earlier he had undergone liver transplantation because of cirrhosis caused by hemochromatosis with multiple foci of hepatocellular carcinoma. The donor liver was procured from a patient with transthyretin-derived (ATTR) amyloidosis caused by a TTR mutation (p.Val71Ala). A fat-biopsy showed Congo red-positive amyloid deposits (Figure 1A) with green birefringence (Figure 1B). Two years after presentation (7 years after transplantation) bone scintigraphy with 99mTc-hydroxyethylene diphosphonate showed uptake in several soft tissues as well as the heart (Figure 2).1 Echocardiography at that time still showed normal left ventricular end-diastolic volume (74 mL/m2), normal left ventricular function (ejection fraction, 56%; global longitudinal systolic strain, 17.4%), normal wall thickness (interventricular septum, 10 mm; posterior wall, 10 mm; and right ventricular wall, 5 mm), normal diastolic function (septal e′ 10.4 cm/s and lateral e′ ...

The FDA approved Akcea Therapeutics Tegsedi (inotersen) for the treatment of polyneuropathy caused by hereditary transthyretin (hATTR)-mediated amyloidosis in adults. The self-administered RNA-targeting therapeutic was approved by European agencies three months ago.. Tegsedis approval has come shorty after the FDA clearance of Alnylam Pharmaceuticals Onpattro (patisiran) for the treatment of adults with polyneuropathy due to hATTR, marking the first drug authorized for this indication in the U.S.. While Akcea has currently priced Tegsedi at a similar level to Onpattro (around $345,000 to $450,000 a year), Akcea CEO Paul Soteropoulos commented that the company is considering strategies to increase affordability. She noted that "its self-administration gives the flexibility to treat at a time that works for [patients], which could change the way this progressive and debilitating disease is treated and managed." Onpattro is administered via infusion at a clinic once every three weeks. Despite ...

8. If any two sequences match, those sequences are attracted to each other and their union spawns a new sequence, which is not a perfect replica of its parents; one end of the sequence will always gain or lose one domino. If last domino in the new sequence is connected to the next by a number which is less than half the domino sets maximum number the last domino is lost from the sequence, breaks of and becomes part of the pool, if more than half it gains. If gained it gains it, where a parent has a matching end domino, from one of the parents. The new sequence then becomes part of the pool of sequences and is attracted to any other matching sequences(or loose dominoes if it was spawned of parents with unmatched gain potential). Repeat this process until all attraction couplings are complete ...

Tetanus is an eminently preventable disease, now almost wiped out in developed countries by simple immunisation. It however continues its pillage and plunder in the developing world. It strikes young and old alike, often invading the body through innocuous wounds. Tetanus is caused by tetanospasmin and tetanolysin, the deadly toxins of the bacterium Clostridium tetani. The disease is classified as generalised, localised, cephalic, or neonatal tetanus. It is characterised by painful spasms which manifest as lockjaw (trismus), facial contortions (risus sardonicus), trunkal rigidity (opisthotonus), and vocal cord spasms (laryngospasm). The disease is awfully distressing and, when advanced, untreatable. It is a stain on the world that this avoidable disorder continuous to threaten a large number of its inhabitants.

The 44-year-old man in this study was presented with sudden-onset, persistent epigastralgia and had undergone living donor living transplantation (LDLT) for familial amyloid polyneuropathy at 42 years of age, with the left hepatic lobe graft donated by his wife. During LT, biliary reconstruction was performed by hepaticojejunostomy with a Roux limb via the antecolic route as the common bile duct was removed for the sake of the following domino LT. The peritoneal defect related to Roux-en-Y anastomosis was primarily closed with several 4-0 silk interrupted sutures. Although he had experienced repeated episodes of small bowel obstruction, which had all recovered fully following conservative management, at 5, 9, and 14 months post-transplantation, continuous epigastralgia and repeated vomiting for 7 h during the present admission prompted clinical suspicion of bowel strangulation. Abdominal guarding and rigidity in the epigastric region were noted on examination. The body temperature was 37.1 °C. ...
In the present study, we found complete defects on MIBG myocardial scans in 8 of 12 patients and limited uptake in the remaining 4 in association with severe systemic autonomic dysfunction. The incidence and magnitude of myocardial accumulation of MIBG were independent of clinical findings, including neurologic disabilities, duration of the illness, extent of endomyocardial amyloid deposition, ECG QRS voltage and ventricular wall thickness. These findings strongly suggest that cardiac adrenergic denervation due to autonomic nervous degeneration ([28]) accounts for alterations in I-123 MIBG myocardial imaging in patients with familial amyloid polyneuropathy. The presence of small localized concentrations of MIBG in the LV anterior wall in some patients indicates that myocardial sympathetic innervation is not equally impaired in this disease.. As we have previously reported ([34]), Tc-99m PYP scintigraphy may have the potential to detect early myocardial amyloid infiltration in patients with ...
Familial transthyretin amyloid polyneuropathy. Curator: Larry H. Bernstein, MD, FCAP. LPBI. First-Ever Evidence that Patisiran Reduces Pathogenic, Misfolded TTR Monomers and Oligomers in FAP Patients. We reported data from our ongoing Phase 2 open-label extension (OLE) study of patisiran, an investigational RNAi therapeutic targeting transthyretin (TTR) for the treatment of TTR-mediated amyloidosis (ATTR amyloidosis) patients with familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP). Alnylam scientists and collaborators from The Scripps Research Institute and Misfolding Diagnostics, Inc. were able to measure the effects of patisiran on pathogenic, misfolded TTR monomers and oligomers in FAP patients. Results showed a rapid and sustained reduction in serum non-native conformations of TTR (NNTTR) of approximately 90%. Since NNTTR is pathogenic in ATTR amyloidosis and the level of NNTTR reduction correlated with total TTR knockdown, these results provide direct mechanistic evidence supporting the therapeutic ...

Familial amyloidotic polineuropathy is a genetic disorder, leading to systemic amyloid deposits, manifested as sensory-motor and autonomic neuropathy. In the Portuguese classical form, the disease is evident at a young age, and causes death if no specific treatment is received. Variability in penetrance, age of onset and clinical course has been published; environmental and genetic factors are believed to contribute to this variability. The authors report a case of a 51-year-old white female, with a medical history of acquired angioedema, late-onset familial amyloidotic polineuropathy and systemic lupus erythemathosus. The authors consider that these associated diseases could modulate their expression ...
Wild-type transthyretin amyloid (WTTA), also known as senile systemic amyloidosis (SSA) and abbreviated as ATTR, is a disease that typically affects the heart and tendons of elderly people. It is caused by accumulation of a wild-type (that is to say a normal) protein called transthyretin. This is in contrast to a related condition called transthyretin-related hereditary amyloidosis where a genetically mutated transthyretin protein tends to deposit at a much earlier age than in WTTA, due to abnormal conformation and bioprocessing. It belongs to a group of diseases called amyloidosis, chronic progressive conditions linked to abnormal deposition of normal or abnormal proteins, because these proteins are misshapen and cannot be properly degraded and eliminated by the cell metabolism. Wild-type transthyretin amyloid accumulates mainly in the heart, where it causes stiffness and often thickening of its walls, leading consequently to shortness of breath and intolerance to exercise, called diastolic ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Pathogenesis of transthyretin amyloidosis. AU - Benson, Merrill. PY - 2012/6. Y1 - 2012/6. N2 - Current dogma for transthyretin (TTR) pathogenesis is that mutations in TTR alter its structure such that the tetramer becomes unstable and prone to release of monomer which then becomes the putative building block of the fibril. This hypothesis is supported by thermodynamic data showing decreased stability of mutant TTR tetrameric proteins and accelerated fibril formation under acidic conditions in vitro. There are, however, a number of questions that are not readily answered by this simplistic model of a very complex disease. Worrisome questions still to be answered include: 1. If the monomer is the precursor of the fibril, why do fibril deposits contain large amounts of wild-type TTR and not just variant 2. If destabilized tetramers can form fibrils in vitro, why do we consistently find partial proteolysis of fibril subunit proteins If enzymatic proteolysis is a required step in ...

Methods to diagnose ATTR include tissue biopsy, genetic testing and imaging studies of the heart.. Currently, there are no higher efficacy ATTR drugs available in the market, but they are expected to hit the market by 2018. The potential ATTR drug candidates include Patisiran and IONIS-TTRrx. For now, off-label drugs and therapies are employed to counter the progression of ATTR.. Request Sample of this Report at: http://www.orbisresearch.com/contacts/request-sample/366384. The global ATTR market is expected to experience robust growth post the launch of ATTR therapeutic drugs, primarily due to increasing African-American population, increasing health care expenditure and accelerating economic growth. However, the growth of this budding market is hindered by the stringent regulations, high cost of ATTR drugs, misdiagnosis of ATTR disorder and limitation of clinical trials.. The major trends, growth drivers as well as issues being faced by the market are discussed in detail in this report.. The ...

RESULTS. 3 patients received a domino graft (from a donor transplanted for familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy); 2 a living related donor graft and 2 a cdaver graft. 5 of the 7 are alive, and as the presenter said 4 are "alive and well", but post transplant experience can have complications which are described below. The average followup time for these patients is 12.8 months (4-30 months). The longest a patient is alive who is doing well is 30 months. In general transplant experience is that patients with hepatitis B have better outcomes than patients with hepatitis C. 3 patients are doing relatively well. The study presenter said 4 of the 7 patients have shown dramatic improvement. 1 patient is in good condition at month 30 and is HCV negative. a second patient has F1 fibrosis at month 12 of followup with low or undetectable HIV RNA and in good condition. A third patient is in good condition at month 18 of followup. Three patients are not doing well. Another patient is alive with F3 fibrosis ...
Background. Liver transplantation (LTx) is an accepted treatment for hereditary transthyretin (TTR) amyloidosis (ATTR). However, unforeseen heart complications, especially a rapid development of cardiomyopathy after LTx has affected mortality and morbidity. Recently, a relationship between ATTR-fibril composition and cardiomyopathy has been noted. The aim of this study was to investigate whether development of cardiomyopathy and heart failure in LTx ATTR amyloid patients is related to amyloid fibril composition.. Methods. Twenty-four patients with hereditary ATTR amyloidosis who had undergone LTx and have had their amyloid fibril type tested were available for the study. They had been examined by echocardiography including tissue Doppler and speckle tracking echocardiography before and after LTx. Patients were divided into two groups according to fibril composition, 10 patients with type A fibrils (a mixture of truncated and full-length TTR) and 14 patients with type B fibrils (full-length TTR ...

Fifty years ago, the focus on the Val30Met type of the disease, in which neurologic manifestations predominate, led to the widespread notion that hereditary transthyretin-related amyloidosis (ATTR) was essentially a neurologic disease. It is now clear that ATTR is extremely heterogeneous on both genotypic and phenotypic grounds. The clinical spectrum of the disease ranges from an almost exclusive neurologic involvement to strictly cardiac manifestations. This heterogeneity is linked to several factors including specific transthyretin mutations, geographic distribution and endemic vs. non-endemic aggregation type. The existence of exclusively or predominantly cardiac phenotypes makes the recognition of the disease very challenging since it can mimic other more common causes of left ventricular "hypertrophy". Assessment of such patients should include an active search for possible red flags that can indicate the correct final diagnosis. More in general the clinician must be aware that: ...

You are to write a program that will fit a set of dominoes onto a grid which is 7 squares high, and eight squares across. This is to be subject to restrictions, in the form of doubles in fixed positions, and to the rule that two touching squares can only be equal if they belong to the same domino. A square should only be considered to touch the four squares directly above, below, left or right. Dominoes may not overlap. You should first read in input indicating where the fixed doubles are. For each double this will be in the form of an x co-ordinate and y co-ordinate for one of the halves of the domino, and a R or B to indicate whether the other half is to the right or below. The top left corner of the board is at (1,1). The list of doubles will terminate with the number -1. Note that not all the doubles may be fixed, and that their value is left for you to decide. Once you have read the list you should try and fit the other dominoes to the grid. You should then output a valid solution if there ...

Familial amyloid polyneuropathy type I is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutations in the transthyretin (TTR) gene; however, carriers of the same mutation exhibit variability in penetrance and clinical expression. We analyzed alleles of candidate genes encoding non-fibrillar components of TTR amyloid deposits and a molecule metabolically interacting with TTR [retinol-binding protein (RBP)], for possible associations with age of disease onset and/or susceptibility in a Portuguese population sample with the TTR V30M mutation and unrelated controls. We show that the V30M carriers represent a distinct subset of the Portuguese population. Estimates of genetic distance indicated that the controls and the classical-onset group were furthest apart, whereas the late-onset group appeared to differ from both. Importantly, the data also indicate that genetic interactions among the multiple loci evaluated, rather than single-locus effects, are more likely to determine differences in the age of ...

Transthyretin (TTR) is a homotetrameric serum protein associated with amyloidoses such as familial amyloid polyneuropathy and senile systemic amyloidosis. The amyloid fibril formation of TTR can be inhibited through stabilization of the TTR tetramer by the binding of small molecules. In this study, we examined the inhibitory potency of caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) and its derivatives. Thioflavin T assay showed that CAPE suppressed the amyloid fibril formation of TTR. Comparative analysis of the inhibitory potencies revealed that phenethyl ferulate was the most potent among the CAPE derivatives. The binding of phenethyl ferulate and the selected compounds to TTR were confirmed by the 8-anilino-1-naphthalenesulfonic acid displacement and X-ray crystallography. It was also demonstrated that Bio 30, which is a CAPE-rich commercially available New Zealand propolis, inhibited ...
Droxidopa (INN; trade name Northera; also known as L-DOPS, L-threo-dihydroxyphenylserine, L-threo-DOPS and SM-5688) is a synthetic amino acid precursor which acts as a prodrug to the neurotransmitter norepinephrine (noradrenaline). Unlike norepinephrine, droxidopa is capable of crossing the protective blood-brain barrier (BBB). Neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (NOH) dopamine beta hydrolase deficiency, as well as NOH associated with multiple system atrophy (MSA), familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP), pure autonomic failure (PAF). Intradialytic hypotension (IDH) or hemodialysis-induced hypotension. Freezing of gait in Parkinsons disease (off-label) Droxidopa was developed by Sumitomo Pharmaceuticals for the treatment of hypotension, including NOH, and NOH associated with various disorders such as MSA, FAP, and PD, as well as IDH. The drug has been used in Japan and some surrounding Asian areas for these indications since 1989. Following a merger with Dainippon Pharmaceuticals in 2006, ...
Familial transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTR) is a rare, life-threatening, autosomal dominant disease involving mainly the heart and the peripheral nervous system due to a point mutation of the transthyretin (TTR) gene. By removing the main source of the mutated TTR, liver transplantation (LT) has become the standard treatment for ATTR (1). Because the demand for liver grafts exceeds the number of available organs and because new treatments have recently emerged, screening patients at high risk of death after LT is critical (2).. We identified 215 consecutive patients who underwent LT between 1993 and 2011. The diagnosis was made by the observation of both amyloid deposits in biopsy specimens and a TTR mutation. The pre-operative evaluation included physical examination, electrocardiography, echocardiography, autonomic dysfunction score, and polyneuropathy disability score (PND) calculation. The primary study endpoint was all-cause mortality after LT. The prognostic model predicting the individual ...
There are some interesting points in the study from the Sun lab that seem to add to general themes found in diseases associated with amyloid aggregation. In all of these diseases, inclusions consisting of an endogenously produced protein mark the progression of the disease. What exactly causes the previously soluble and physiological form of the protein to change conformation into a pathological form and aggregate is in most cases unclear.. In the case of transthyretin (TTR), a serum protein involved in familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy, a destabilization event induced by either a missense mutation or an external insult leads to depolymerization of the natively tetrameric protein, which then leaves it open to amyloidogenic polymerization (Quintas et al., 1999). The native form, stabilized by its natural ligand thyroxin, is aggregation-resistant. Our lab has recently discovered that a very similar situation can be found for α-synuclein (αS), a mostly neuronally expressed protein of unknown ...

In this, the largest ever CMR study in patients with amyloidosis, we found that native myocardial T1 mapping has a high diagnostic accuracy for cardiac amyloid for both AL and ATTR when compared against HCM, a relevant clinical differential diagnosis. Furthermore, T1 tracks cardiac amyloid burden in both diseases, and is more sensitive for detecting early disease in gene mutation carriers than LGE imaging. In both amyloid types, T1 tracks markers of systolic and diastolic function, mass, and prognostic markers. In ATTR amyloid, T1 additionally correlates with ECG PR and QRS duration and indexed left atrial area, whereas in AL type, it correlates with reductions in limb lead voltages. T1 also has functional associations with a reduction in 6-min walk test in ATTR amyloidosis. Interestingly and perhaps unexpectedly (16), T1 elevation was lower in ATTR compared with AL type.. Amyloidosis is considered the exemplar of an interstitial disease, as the quantity of amyloid in the extracellular space ...
Our study, which includes the largest series so far of patients with TTR-related CA comprehensively studied by both conventional echocardiography and 2D STI, supports the role of myocardial deformation imaging as a sensitive tool for characterizing LV dysfunction in CA over more traditional echocardiographic parameters. Our findings provide insights into the pathophysiological mechanisms underlining LV dysfunction in amyloid heart disease, suggesting a role for specific pathogenesis and LV wall thickness in determining LV dysfunction. Along with pathogenesis, LV LS was found to be an independent predictor of overall survival, confirming the previously observed prognostic significance of strain in patients with AL amyloidosis.. CA is commonly considered a form of restrictive cardiomyopathy, and the pathophysiology of HF has traditionally been attributed to diastolic dysfunction. Only a few studies have assessed the individual contributions of systolic and diastolic dysfunction to the ...

Neurological symptoms developed after a median of 43 days (range 35-58) compared to only 10 days in previous studies of unvaccinated patients. All showed evidence of mild limb polyneuropathy with electrophysiological evidence of polyneuropathy. Only 30% showed early bulbar abnormalities compared to the usual rate of over 95% in diphtheritic polyneuropathy. However, 45% had later bulbar deterioration coinciding with the limb polyneuropathy ...

Amyloidosis is a disorder resulting from the abnormal deposition of a particular protein in various tissues of the body. The four most common forms of amyloidosis are: (1) light chain due to immunoglobulins; (2) secondary which is seen in chronic inflammatory states such as rheumatoid arthritis; (3) senile which is typically seen in those over the age of 80; and (4) heriditary. There are at least eight different proteins that have been recognized to cause the hereditary amyloidoses [2]. Of these, the amyloidgenicTTR (ATTR) protein is the most common, with the Val30Met (Portuguese type) being the most prevalent mutation causing ATTR (80% of cases) [2]. The most common manifestation of ATTR is a neuropathy, but clinical manifestations vary depending on the location of the mutation. The treatment of hereditary amyloidosis is OLT, which limits further synthesis of the mutated protein, and thus halts further deposition in the organs. The Val30Met mutation typically presents with neuropathy, cardiac ...
A Phase 3 Multicenter Multinational Randomized Double-blind Placebo-controlled Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Patisiran (ALN-TTR02) in Transthyretin (TTR)-Mediated Polyneuropathy (Familial Amyloidotic Polyneuropathy - FAP) (APOLLO)
Results were recently published for the first trial of CPHPC as a therapy to clear out age-related deposits of the type of amyloid formed from misfolded transthyretin, normally responsible for transporting the thyroid hormone thyroxine in blood and cerebrospinal fluid. Amyloids are one of the distinguishing features of older tissues, and clearing them will be one of the necessary outcomes produced by any comprehensive suite of rejuvenation therapies developed in the near future.. The accumulation of transthyretin amyloid creates a condition known as senile systemic amyloidosis where it occurs to varying degrees for everyone in later life, and TTR amyloidosis when it arises in young people due to inherited mutations. Senile systemic amyloidosis is known to be responsible for a sizable fraction of deaths in supercentenarians, as the amyloid deposits clog the cardiovascular system to the point of failure. This process is also thought to play an underappreciated role in heart failure in the younger ...
Amyloidosis, transthyretin-related (AMYL-TTR) [MIM:105210]: A hereditary generalized amyloidosis due to transthyretin amyloid deposition. Protein fibrils can form in different tissues leading to amyloid polyneuropathies, amyloidotic cardiomyopathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, systemic senile amyloidosis. The disease includes leptomeningeal amyloidosis that is characterized by primary involvement of the central nervous system. Neuropathologic examination shows amyloid in the walls of leptomeningeal vessels, in pia arachnoid, and subpial deposits. Some patients also develop vitreous amyloid deposition that leads to visual impairment (oculoleptomeningeal amyloidosis). Clinical features include seizures, stroke-like episodes, dementia, psychomotor deterioration, variable amyloid deposition in the vitreous humor. {ECO:0000269,PubMed:10036587, ECO:0000269,PubMed:10071047, ECO:0000269,PubMed:10211412, ECO:0000269,PubMed:10436378, ECO:0000269,PubMed:10439117, ECO:0000269,PubMed:10611950, ...
Amyloidosis is a term for diseases that share a common feature: the extracellular deposition of amyloid fibrils, that consist of a single protein prone to aggregate. Polysaccharides (glycos-aminoglycans), especially heparan sulfate, are significant components of all types of amyloid deposits. Arising from numerous modifications during biosynthesis, heparan sulfate is characterized by extensive structural variability that affects interactions with various proteins and thus influences important biological functions. The aim of this study was to characterize heparan sulfate from Alzheimer lesions in cerebral cortex and from amyloidotic liver and spleen following inflammation-associated amyloidosis. We wanted to determine whether Alzheimers disease is associated with structural changes in heparan sulfate that could possibly affect the interaction with the amyloid β-peptide, the main constituent of amyloid deposits in brain. Amyloid laden liver and spleen showed a substantial increase in heparan ...
Cysteineglutathione disulfide is a molecule that is formed upon oxidative stress of glutathione, that will form mixed disulfides with protein thiol groups, causing reversible S-glutathionylation. S-glutathionylation is an important post-translational modification responsible for transducing oxidant signals. S-glutathionylation of thiols confers protection against their irreversible oxidation, like for instance the formation of sulphonic acid moieties. If the targeted cysteine is a functionally critical amino acid, S-glutathionylation will however also modify protein function. (PMID 16515838 ). S-sulfonation and S-thiolation of transthyretin Phe33Cys has been detected in a patient with familial transthyretin amyloidosis. (PMID 12876326 ). In Cystinotic human skin fibroblasts in tissue culture there is an accumulation of cystine. Stored cystine in cystinotic tissues may derive in part from glutathione-cysteine mixed disulfide via transpeptidation. (PMID 6130452 ). Cystinosis is an autosomal ...
Amyloidosis is a disorder caused by misfolding of autologous protein and its extracellular deposition as fibrils, resulting in vital organ dysfunction and eventually death. Pulmonary amyloidosis may be localised or part of systemic amyloidosis.. Pulmonary interstitial amyloidosis is symptomatic only if the amyloid deposits severely affect gas exchange alveolar structure, thus resulting in serious respiratory impairment. Localised parenchymal involvement may be present as nodular amyloidosis or as amyloid deposits associated with localised lymphomas. Finally, tracheobronchial amyloidosis, which is usually not associated with evident clonal proliferation, may result in airway stenosis.. Because the treatment options for amyloidosis are dependent on the fibril protein type, the workup of all new cases should include accurate determination of the amyloid protein. Most cases are asymptomatic and need only a careful follow-up. Diffuse alveolar-septal amyloidosis is treated according to the underlying ...
