Complement receptor 1 (CD35) on human reticulocytes: normal expression in systemic lupus erythematosus and HIV-infected patients. (1/384)

The low levels of complement receptor 1 (CR1) on erythrocytes in autoimmune diseases and AIDS may be due to accelerated loss in the circulation, or to a diminished expression of CR1 on the red cell lineage. Therefore, we analyzed the expression of CR1 on reticulocytes (R) vs erythrocytes (E). Healthy subjects had a significant higher CR1 number per cell on R (919 +/- 99 CR1/cell) than on E (279 +/- 30 CR1/cell, n = 23), which corresponded to a 3. 5- +/- 1.3-fold loss of CR1. This intravascular loss was confirmed by FACS analysis, which showed that all R expressed CR1, whereas a large fraction of E was negative. The systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), HIV-infected, and cold hemolytic Ab disease (CHAD) patients had a CR1 number on R identical to the healthy subjects, contrasting with a lower CR1 on their E. The data indicated a significantly higher loss of CR1 in the three diseases, i.e., 7.0- +/- 3.8-, 6.1- +/- 2.9-, and 9.6- +/- 5.6-fold, respectively. The intravascular loss was best exemplified in a patient with factor I deficiency whose CR1 dropped from 520 CR1/R to 28 CR1/E, i.e., 18.6-fold loss. In one SLE patient and in the factor I-deficient patient, the FACS data were consistent with a loss of CR1 already on some R. In conclusion, CR1 is lost progressively from normal E during in vivo aging so that old E are almost devoid of CR1. The low CR1 of RBC in autoimmune diseases and HIV-infection is due to a loss occurring in the circulation by an active process that remains to be defined.  (+info)

Requirement of IL-5 for induction of autoimmune hemolytic anemia in anti-red blood cell autoantibody transgenic mice. (2/384)

IL-5, IL-10 and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) are known to activate B-1 cells in vivo in normal mice and anti-red blood cell autoantibody transgenic mice (HL mice). To assess the exact role of IL-5 in proliferation and activation of peritoneal B-1 cells, we analyzed IL-5 receptor alpha chain-deficient HL (IL-5Ralpha-/- x HL) mice generated by the cross between IL-5Ralpha-/- and HL mice. In IL-5Ralpha-/- x HL mice, Ig-producing B-1 cells in the peritoneal cavity were negligible, although the total number of B-1 cells in the peritoneal cavity were as many as 30% of that in HL mice. Moreover, LPS- or IL-10-induced differentiation of B-1 cells into antibody-producing cells was severely impaired in IL-5Ralpha-/- x HL mice. We also used in vivo 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine labeling to estimate the proliferation of B-1 cells in IL-5Ralpha-/- mice. The absence of IL-5Ralpha did not affect spontaneous proliferation of peritoneal B-1 cells. However, induced proliferation of peritoreal B-1 cells by oral administration of LPS was markedly impaired in IL-5Ralpha-/- mice. These results suggest that IL-5 is required for activation-associated proliferation of B-1 cells but not for their spontaneous proliferation and support the idea that IL-5 plays an important role on the induction of autoantibody production from B-1 cells.  (+info)

Cardiac changes in fetuses secondary to immune hemolytic anemia and their relation to hemoglobin and catecholamine concentrations in fetal blood. (3/384)

OBJECTIVES: Immune hemolytic anemia in the fetus may cause cardiac decompensation and intrauterine death. Postnatally, norepinephrine (noradrenaline) is released in chronic heart failure, and may lead to myocardial hypertrophy. The aim of this study was to determine fetal cardiac changes associated with immune hemolytic anemia by means of echocardiography, and to relate them to fetal hemoglobin and norepinephrine levels. DESIGN: Thirty anemic fetuses underwent a total of 76 umbilical venous transfusions. Before the procedure, fetal echocardiography was performed, and end-diastolic myocardial wall thicknesses and ventricular dimensions together with Doppler flow patterns at the atrioventricular and semilunar valves were measured. Fetal hemoglobin, epinephrine and norepinephrine concentrations were determined before the transfusion. Statistical analysis of this prospective study comprised descriptive statistics including linear regression and correlation analyses. Two samples of measurements were compared by the Mann-Whitney U test. RESULTS: The mean hemoglobin concentration before the first transfusion was 6.9 g% at a mean gestational age of 26.8 weeks. Norepinephrine values were elevated in comparison to a reference range, and were higher than epinephrine values. The most striking echocardiographic finding was myocardial hypertrophy of all ventricular walls. Mean blood flow velocities were increased; at the left ventricle, they were negatively related to the hemoglobin concentrations, and positively to the norepinephrine values. CONCLUSIONS: Fetal myocardial hypertrophy in anemia may be the result of an augmented cardiac workload, indicated by the increased left ventricular mean velocities. This reaction reflects the redistribution of blood flow that may depend on hemoglobin and norepinephrine concentrations.  (+info)

Autologous CD34+ cells transplantation after FAMP treatment in a patient with CLL and persisting AIHA: complete remission of lymphoma with control of autoimmune complications. (4/384)

A 48-year-old male with CLL and concomitant AIHA unresponsive to chlorambucil was treated with fludarabine. The remission of CLL and improvement of the AIHA was achieved, but the patient remained steroid dependent. Therefore, high-dose chemotherapy followed by CD34-selected autologous peripheral blood stem cells transplantation was performed and this led to long-term clinical, immunophenotypic and molecular remission with disappearance of AIHA. Twenty-three months later, the CLL recurred with signs of AIHA. In this patient with AIHA, HDC and selected CD34+ cells completely, though temporarily, controlled both CLL and associated immune complications. This case illustrates the potential application of this approach in the management of CLL patients with immune complications.  (+info)

Galactosylation of serum IgG and autoantibodies in murine models of autoimmune haemolytic anaemia. (5/384)

A number of systemic autoimmune diseases are associated with increased levels of the agalactosyl (G0) IgG isoforms that lack a terminal galactose from the CH2 domain oligosaccharide. The current aim was to determine whether the galactosylation of serum IgG is also reduced in a classic antibody-mediated, organ-specific autoimmune condition, and whether the pathogenic autoantibodies are preferentially G0. In two murine forms of autoimmune haemolytic anaemia (AIHA), sera and autoantibodies eluted from erythrocytes were obtained, and the levels of G0 measured using a lectin-binding assay. Serum IgG galactosylation was unaffected following the induction of AIHA in CBA/Igb mice by immunization with rat erythrocytes, but in all animals with the disease the IgG autoantibodies generated were more G0 than the sera. The anti-rat erythrocyte antibodies were similar to the autoantibodies in being preferentially G0, and when CBA/Igb mice were immunized with canine erythrocytes as a control foreign antigen, there was again a bias towards the production of G0 IgG antibodies. In NZB mice with chronic, spontaneous AIHA, the concentration and galactosylation of both serum IgG and autoantibodies were lower than in the induced model, and the ratio of G0 IgG in the serum and erythrocyte eluates varied markedly between different individuals. Our interpretation of these results is that changes in serum IgG or autoantibody galactosylation are not consistent in different models of AIHA, and that production of low galactosyl antibodies can be a feature of a normal immune response.  (+info)

A persistent severe autoimmune hemolytic anemia despite apparent direct antiglobulin test negativization. (6/384)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Not all cases of autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) are diagnosed by the direct antiglobulin test (DAT). We present and discuss a simple method of enhancing the sensitivity of the standard DAT. DESIGN AND METHODS: We report the case of a five-month-old child diagnosed with a severe IgG-mediated AIHA, characterized by quick DAT negativization despite clinical worsening. Warm AIHA with negative DAT, possibly due to a low affinity autoantibody, unresponsive to conventional therapy, was hypothesized. RESULTS: The DAT resulted strongly positive with anti-IgG serum using a 4C saline for erythrocyte washing, to reduce the dissociation of the supposed low affinity autoantibody. Very intensive cytoreductive treatment was administered twice until clinical remission was obtained. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: The clinical course of AIHA can be dissociated by the DAT. Since autoantibody-mediated hemolysis with negative DAT rarely occurs, once other causes of high reticulocyte count anemia have been ruled out, the DAT after ice-cold saline washing could be a useful and easy means of corroborating the diagnosis of AHIA, when traditional methods fail.  (+info)

Autoimmune hemolytic anemia in patients with SCID after T cell-depleted BM and PBSC transplantation. (7/384)

We report a high incidence (19.5%) of autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) in 41 patients with SCID who underwent a T cell-depleted haploidentical transplant. Other than infections, AIHA was the most common post-transplant complication in this patient cohort. Clinical characteristics and treatment of eight patients who developed AIHA at a median of 8 months after the first T cell-depleted transplant are presented. All patients had warm-reacting autoantibodies, and two of eight had concurrent cold and warm autoantibodies. Clinical course was most severe in two patients who had cold and warm autoantibodies. Five patients received specific therapy for AIHA. Successful taper off immunosuppressive therapy for AIHA coincided with T cell reconstitution. Delayed reconstitution of T cell immunity, due to T cell depletion, immunosuppressive conditioning and CsA, as well as paucity of regulatory T cells, are the likely explanations for the occurrence of AIHA in our patient cohort. Screening of the population at risk may prevent morbidity and mortality from AIHA.  (+info)

High pathogenic potential of low-affinity autoantibodies in experimental autoimmune hemolytic anemia. (8/384)

To assess the potency of low-affinity anti-red blood cell (RBC) autoantibodies in the induction of anemia, we generated an immunoglobulin (Ig)G2a class-switch variant of a 4C8 IgM anti-mouse RBC autoantibody, and compared its pathogenic potential with that of its IgM isotype and a high-affinity 34-3C IgG2a autoantibody. The RBC-binding activity of the 4C8 IgG2a variant was barely detectable, at least 1,000 times lower than that of its IgM isotype, having a high-binding avidity, and that of the 34-3C IgG2a monoclonal antibody (mAb). This low-affinity feature of the 4C8 mAb was consistent with the lack of detection of opsonized RBCs in the circulating blood from the 4C8 IgG2a-injected mice. However, the 4C8 IgG2a variant was highly pathogenic, as potent as its IgM isotype and the 34-3C IgG2a mAb, due to its capacity to interact with Fc receptors involved in erythrophagocytosis. In addition, our results indicated that the pentameric form of the low-affinity IgM isotype, by promoting the binding and agglutination of RBCs, is critical for its pathogenic activity. Demonstration of the remarkably high pathogenic potency of low-affinity autoantibodies, if combined with appropriate heavy chain effector functions, highlights the critical role of the Ig heavy chain constant regions, but the relatively minor role of autoantigen-binding affinities, in autoimmune hemolytic anemia.  (+info)

Haemolytic anaemia is a form of anaemia caused by haemolysis. It may be either hereditary or acquired. Haemolytic anaemia that is hereditary may be due to defects in erythrocyte production, in hemoglobin production, or in erythrocyte metabolism. Acquired haemolytic anemia, in turn, may be due to immune related factors. Autoimmune haemolytic anaemia is an example of an acquired form of haemolytic anaemia. It occurs when the antibodies act against own red blood cells. These antibodies lyse the red blood cells. Thus, in a person with a severe automimmune haemolytic anaemia, the lifespan of red blood cells could be reduced into just few days from the normal 100-120 days.1 Autoimmune haemolytic anaemia may either be warm or cold depending on the characteristics of the autoantibodies involved. Warm (antibody) autoimmune haemolytic anaemia is more common than cold (antibody) autoimmune haemolytic anaemia. 2 ...

Autoantibodies eluted from red blood cells, and serum IgG, were obtained from a patient with chronic AIHA over a 21 month period, and the degree of galactosylation measured using a lectin-binding assay, There were wide fluctuations in the galactosylation of autoantibody and serum IgG, but these changes were unrelated to the severity of the anaemia, The galactosylation of ...
SUMMARY. Two hundred thirty-four cases of autoimmune hemolytic anemia were analyzed, and 114 examples of neoplasia of the reticuloendothelium were found. The temporal sequence of this association was examined. In 31.6% of the cases both states were simultaneously discovered. The neoplastic process preceded autoimmune hemolytic anemia in 61.4% of the series. In 7 patients with 8 neoplastic growths (a prevalence of 7%) autoimmune hemolytic anemia occurred before neoplasia.. It is suggested that neither autoimmune hemolytic anemia nor reticuloendothelial neoplasia is directly involved in creating the other state. The hypothesis is developed that an immunologic aberration is present in such patients that prevents the establishment of a normal immune homeostatic mechanism. The survival of immunocompetent cells, which have been modified by viruses or somatic mutation, in the face of a defective immune apparatus may result in either autoimmune hemolytic anemia, reticuloendothelial neoplasia, or both ...

Warm antibody autoimmune hemolytic anemia (WAIHA) is the most common form of autoimmune hemolytic anemia. About half of the cases are of unknown cause, with the other half attributable to a predisposing condition or medications being taken. Contrary to cold autoimmune hemolytic anemia (e.g., cold agglutinin disease and paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria) which happens in cold temperature (28-31 °C), WAIHA happens at body temperature. AIHA may be: Idiopathic, that is, without any known cause Secondary to another disease, such as an antecedent upper respiratory tract infection, systemic lupus erythematosus or a malignancy, such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) Several medications have been associated with the development of warm AIHA. These medications include quinidine, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), alpha methyldopa, and antibiotics such as penicillins, cephalosporins (such as ceftriaxone and cefotetan), and ciprofloxacin. The most common antibody isotype involved in warm ...
Mixed warm and cold autoimmune hemolytic anemia runs a chronic course with severe intermittent exacerbations. Therapeutic options for the treatment of hemolysis associated with autoimmune hemolytic anemia are limited. There have been only two reported cases of the effective use of rituximab in the treatment of patients with mixed autoimmune hemolytic anemia. We report a case of severe mixed autoimmune hemolytic anemia that did not respond to steroids and responded to four weekly doses of rituximab (one cycle). A 62-year-old Caucasian man presented with dyspnea, jaundice and splenomegaly. His blood work revealed severe anemia (hemoglobin, 4.9 g/dL) with biochemical evidence of hemolysis. Exposure to cold led to worsening of the patients hemolysis and hemoglobinuria. A direct antiglobulin test was positive for immunoglobulin G and complement C3d, and cold agglutinins of immunoglobulin M type were detected. A bone marrow biopsy revealed erythroid hyperplasia. A positron emission tomographic scan showed no

Rituximab, a chimeric anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody, has been shown to be highly effective in vitro in destroying B lymyhocytes using either human complement or antibody dependent cell mediated cytotoxicity. The drug action has also been reported to be equally efficient in vivo, as B lymphocytes became undetectable in peripheral blood after a single dose of drug.5 In view of its unique pharmacological property and highly selective action on CD20+ cells, rituximab has been chosen for treatment of various types of B lymphocyte mediated immune diseases, including non-Hodgkin lymphoma,6 myasthenia gravis,7 IgM related polyneuropathies,8 systemic lupus erythematosus,9 immune thrombocytopenia,10,11 and cold agglutinin disease.12 Recently, anti-B cell targeted immunotherapy has been tried on patients with refractory autoimmune haemolytic anaemia with various degree of success.2-4 However, its use in newborn infants has not been reported.

Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (or autoimmune haemolytic anaemia; AIHA) occurs when antibodies directed against the persons own red blood cells (RBCs) cause them to burst (lyse), leading to an insufficient number of oxygen-carrying red blood cells in the circulation. The lifetime of the RBCs is reduced from the normal 100-120 days to just a few days in serious cases. The intracellular components of the RBCs are released into the circulating blood and into tissues, leading to some of the characteristic symptoms of this condition. The antibodies are usually directed against high-incidence antigens, therefore they also commonly act on allogenic RBCs (RBCs originating from outside the person themselves, e.g. in the case of a blood transfusion). AIHA is a relatively rare condition, affecting one to three people per 100,000 per year. The terminology used in this disease is somewhat ambiguous. Although MeSH uses the term autoimmune hemolytic anemia, some sources prefer the term immunohemolytic anemia ...

Cold Agglutinin Disease is a rare type of autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA)in which the bodys immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys its own red blood cells. This causes red blood cells to be prematurely destroyed (hemolysis) leading to anemia and other associated signs and symptoms such as extreme fatigue, muscle weakness, trouble breathing, dizziness, rapid heartbeat and pulse, bluish skin and pain, particularly in areas exposed to the cold. CAD patients are more susceptible to blood clots, strokes, and heart issues than the average person ...
Cold agglutinin disease (CAD) is a rare form of autoimmune hemolytic anemia with limited epidemiological and clinical data. We used the Danish National Patient Registries to examine CAD occurrence and risk of thromboembolic events (TEs) and mortality in CAD patients compared with a matched cohort from the general population in Denmark. We identified 72 patients diagnosed with CAD and 720 matched controls between 1999 and 2013. For 2013, the most recent year of study, crude incidence of CAD was 0.18 per 100 000 inhabitants per year and prevalence was 1.26 per 100 000 inhabitants. Risk of TEs was higher in the CAD patient cohort than in the comparison cohort at 1 year (7.2% of CAD patients had TEs vs 1.9% of comparisons), 3 years (9.0% vs 5.3%), and 5 years (11.5% vs 7.8%) after the index date. The median survival was 8.5 years.

We report herein the case of a 55-year-old man who presented an acute hemolysis following a 6th cycle of FOLFOX regimen for a metastatic colorectal cancer; this patient had previously received 12 cycles in an adjuvant setting. He had presented attenuated signs during the previous cycle. This corresponded to an oxaliplatin-induced immune hemolytic anemia. This unfrequent side effect of oxaliplatin needs to be known in order to avoid severe complications.. 1. Introduction. Oxaliplatin is used in the treatment of colorectal cancer in adjuvant or metastatic setting. The side effects are generally moderate: hypersensitivity, digestive disorders, hematological toxicity, acroparesthesia exacerbated by the cold. More rarely, oxaliplatin can be responsible for immune-induced cytopenia that can sometimes threaten the vital prognosis. We report a rare case of a patient presenting with autoimmune hemolytic anemia induced by oxaliplatin after several months of treatment, with rapid and favorable ...

the child was given her second doses of the oral polio virus, hepatitis B, and diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (DTP) vaccines, and within four days she exhibited lethargy, a low level fever, and lack of appetite. She was unresponsive when admitted to the hospital three days later, suffering from severe anemia and low hemoglobin levels. Tests for Haemophilus influenza, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Neiseria meningitidis were negative or did not appear conclusively as cause or contributor to the current condition. The infant continued to experience severe hemolysis and died 41 hours after admission. Although the study could not prove it conclusively, by eliminating other causes of autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA), the researchers suggest that, in this case, there is a causal relationship to the second DTP vaccination. A 1992 report from the Institute of Medicine concluded, however, that there is insufficient evidence of either the presence or absence of such a connection.. ...
Background: Ataxia telangiectasia (AT) is one of the combined immunodeficiency syndromes with immunologic, neurologic, endocrinologic, hepatic and cutaneous abnormalities. Regarding the fact that autoimmune disorders; such as autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA), are not generally expected in the course of AT, we present a patient with an unusual presentation of these two conditions. Case presentation: An otherwise seemingly normal girl, who had developed limping at the age of 11 months old, referred to Namazi Hospital, Shiraz, Iran, due to pallor and latitude at the age of 3 yrs and was diagnosed with AIHA. After 2 years of therapeutic course she developed ocular telangiectasia and ataxic gate. Conclusion: This case emphasizes the possibility of ataxia telangiectasia coexistence with autoimmune disorders and must be taken into consideration by physicians.
Laparoscopic splenectomy is widely accepted as a preferred surgical technique. Single port laparoscopic surgery further improves cosmesis, pain control and recovery compared to standard multi-port laparoscopy.. We report on a single port accessory splenectomy in patient with symptomatic recurrence of autoimmune hemolytic anemia after prior splenectomy more that 30 years ago. Patient was maintained on prednisone 30 mg daily preoperatively. Preoperative imaging localized accessory spleen to left upper quadrant area. With the use of SILS™ Port (Covidien) accessory spleen was identified in splenic fossa and removed. The later represented globular mass of 35 grams, 4.6 x 4.3 cm in diameter. Procedure lasted 80 minutes. Estimated blood loss was 30 ml. Postoperatively patient did well and was discharged on postoperative day three requiring only four Lortab tablets during hospital stay. During follow up patient is doing well, currently off steroids with hematocrit stabilized at 34 per cent.. We ...

Treatment:. Patients with few clinical symptoms and mild anemia may not require treatment but only avoidance of cold. Keeping the patient warm may be sufficient treatment. Treat any underlying infection e.g. Clarithromycin or Azithromycin for Mycoplasma pneumoniae.. Anemia is generally mild. Only patients who have serious symptoms related to anemia or have a Raynaud-type syndrome that constitutes a threat to life or quality of life require active therapy.. Folic acid supplements for prevention and treatment of folate deficiency should be considered.. The disease is usually refractory to corticosteroids.. Rituximab may be an option for treatment in some cases.. In the presence of underlying lymphoma, chlorambucil or oral cyclophosphamide may be helpful.. Splenectomy is usually ineffective for the treatment of cold agglutinin disease, because the liver is the predominant site of sequestration. However, if the patient has splenomegaly, then the disease may respond to splenectomy. More importantly, ...
We have investigated the hemolytic mechanisms in a patient with acquired immune hemolytic anemia whose red cells appeared to be coated with IgA alone. The clinical course was similar to that of patients with hemolytic anemia mediated by warm-reacting IgG antibody. Splenic sequestration of red cells was demonstrated, and marked reduction of hemolysis occurred after corticosteroid therapy. Antibody was eluted from the patients red cells and used to sensitize normal red cells in vitro. These sensitized red cells were not lysed by fresh autologous serum, nor did they fix detectable amounts of C3. However, red cells sensitized by eluted antibody were lysed by normal human peripheral blood monocytes in a system designed to demonstrate antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity. Monocyte-mediated hemolysis of sensitized red cells was inhibited by the addition of low concentrations of normal serum IgA to the system, but not by IgG. The ability of the eluate to induce monocyte-mediated hemolysis was ...
We retrospectively studied 232 patients with cold agglutinin disease (CAD) at 24 centers in five countries. In Norway and a northern region of Italy, the study was close to being population-based. For the first time, we demonstrate 4-fold differences between cold and warmer climates regarding prevalence (20 versus 5 cases/million) and incidence (1.9 versus 0.48 cases/million/year). Mean baseline hemoglobin level was 9.3 g/dL, but 27% had hemoglobin , 8 g/dL. Identification of typical features of CAD-associated lymphoproliferative disorder in the bone marrow was greatly increased by centralized biopsy assessment. CAD seems to be associated with a slightly increased risk of venous thrombosis. This work included a follow-up study of therapies, focusing on the long-term outcomes of the rituximab plus bendamustine and rituximab plus fludarabine regimens. Rituximab plus bendamustine therapy resulted in responses in 35 (78%) of 45 patients; 24 (53%) achieved complete response. Interestingly, these ...

WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Bioverativ Inc., a Sanofi company dedicated to transforming the lives of people with rare blood disorders, today announced results from a new, population-based retrospective study that found a greater than twofold increased risk of mortality in people with cold agglutinin disease (CAD) within the first five years after diagnosis. The study, which is the first to compare overall survival among people with CAD with that of the general population, also showed that the increased risk of mortality and life-threatening thromboembolic events (TEs) such as stroke and heart attack was evident starting in the first year after diagnosis. These data were presented at the 23rd Annual Congress of the European Hematology Association (EHA). The results of our survival analysis contribute to the growing body of evidence that indicate that CAD is a more severe disease than previously thought, said Sigbjørn Berentsen, MD, PhD, Consultant Hematologist, Department of Research and ...

The first deficiency to be demonstrated was a haemolytic Anemia described in premature infants. Infant formulations now contain vitamin E. Haemolytic anaemia is a breakdown of red cells with haemolysis which results in anaemia. There is sequestration of the red cells in the spleen which may enlarge.. A haemolytic anaemia is where the red blood cells are being broken down resulting in the patient becoming anaemic. There are a number of things which can attack the red blood cells. In autoimmune haemolytic anaemia it seems that the body is producing its own attack - that is, it is producing antibodies which it would normally produce to fight infections to fight its own cells. There are a lot of autoimmune diseases of different kinds and this haemolytic anaemia might be part of one of those diseases or it might be a problem in its own right - then it tends to get called idiopathic autoimmune haemolytic anaemia.. Acquired haemolytic anaemia may also be caused by the presence of antibodies ...

Background: CAD is a complement-driven autoimmune hemolytic anemia in which IgM antibodies bind to red blood cells (RBC) at lower temperatures. Although exposure to cold may precipitate RBC agglutination, we recently reported a lack of seasonal variability in anemia, hemolysis, and healthcare utilization. Thromboembolic events (TE) are a newly reported but consequential complication of CAD. The effect of colder weather on TE risk is unknown. We therefore compared TE rates in CAD patients during all seasons in the US.. Methods: CAD patients diagnosed between 2009 and 2016 were retrospectively identified within the Optum clinical-claims database. TE were identified using diagnostic codes. TE risk was compared among seasons using logistic regression adjusted for age, sex, race, region, year, Charlson Comorbidity Index, and clustering within subjects.. Results: 808 CAD patients (63% female; 66% ≥65 years old) were identified. 204 CAD patients experienced 287 TE; 56 (20%) were in summer, 57 (20%) ...

S there difference between indirect and direct coombs test - S there difference between indirect and direct Coombs test? Yes. The direct Coombs test is typically used to test for autoimmune hemolytic anemia, a disorder involving destruction of red blood cells. It determines whether or not antibodies are present on the surface of the patients rbcs. The indirect Coombs test is typically used to test for blood type compatibility prior to a transfusion, and detects the presence of antibodies in the serum of the patient.
Two criteria must be diagnose AIHA: serologic evidence of an autoantibody and clinical or laboratory evidence of hemolysis. Serologic evidence of an autoantibody is provided by positive autocontrol and direct antiglobulin test (DAT, direct Coombs´ test) results and subsequent identification of an autoantibody in the RBC eluate and possibly the serum. Serum reactivity with autologous RBCs generally indicates the presence of an autoantibody, but it does not exclude the presence of an autoantibody. ...

Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA) is a serious and sometimes life-threatening auto-immune condition in which the immune system attacks and destroys a patients red blood cells, causing anemia.. Cause IMHA is caused by an abnormal immune response in which the patients body targets red blood cells for destruction. Primary IMHA has no known cause, meaning the immune system was not triggered to attack the red blood cells for any identifiable reason. Secondary IMHA is suspected when an anemic patient is diagnosed with a new infection, cancer, or has recently been started on medication or received a vaccination that stimulated the immune system. Primary IMHA is more common than secondary IMHA, but because of differences in therapy and prognosis, a search for an immune trigger is generally recommended.. The immune system has both pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory chemical triggers as well as recognition of its own cells; an auto-immune or immune-mediated condition is one in which these ...

The DAT (Direct Coombs test) is positive if red cells have been coated, in vivo, with immunoglobulin, complement, or both. A positive result can occur in immune-mediated red cell destruction, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, a transfusion reaction or in patients receiving certain drugs.
Hemolytic Anemia is a condition where there is a destruction of red blood cells prematurely leading to anaemia with release of bilirubin in to the circulation. There are main 2 types of haemolytic anaemia: acquired and hereditary. There are also different types of acquired haemolytic anaemia such as immune mediated, infection induced, microangiopathic haemolytic anaemia and hereditary haemolytic anaemia such as glucose 6 phosphate deficiency, pyruvate kinase deficiency, hereditary spherocytosis and haemoglobinopathies. Drug induced haemolytic anaemia can be immune mediated where there is formation of autoantibodies against the red blood cell membrane after penicillin or immune complex formation after quinine therapy. It may be drug-dependent or drug-independent. Anaemia can be triggered by drugs such as primaquine, sulfonamide and aspirin in people with glucose 6 phosphate deficiency. Drugs also can trigger the anaemia in auto immune haemolytic anaemia. Eg:-Penicillin produces large amounts of ...
Importance of DAT. A Coombs Test or Direct Antiglobulin Test (DAT) is performed to detect the presence of antibodies against red blood cells. It is used in the diagnosis of Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA). IMHA is the most common cause of hemolytic anemia in dogs.. Benefits. • 2O minutes procedure.. • All material included.. • Time saving.. • Easy handling.. • Reliable results.. • Easy interpretation.. • Snap result.. Our technology. The classical technology uses incubation of washed red blood cells suspension with antisera that causes agglutination. Our immuno-chromatographic technology will detect the presence of immunoglobulin (IgG & IgM) and/or C3 components binding to the RBC surface. A positive result indicates an in vivo sensitization and can thus be used to indicate the presence of auto-immune antibodies.. Our canine Direct Antiglobulin Test (DAT) aims to detect the presence of immunoglobulins and/or C3 components on the surface of patients red blood cells (RBCs). ...

The first chapter, by Dr. Dzik, is a real treat to read. Of special note is his critical analysis of the three common assumptions: (1) Abnormal results of commonly used laboratory tests such as prothrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time, or platelet count have predictive value to identify which patients to treat; (2) blood components administered before procedures effectively correct hemostatic abnormalities; and (3) prophylactic transfusions preprocedure are of greater benefit than therapeutic transfusions after the procedure. The rest of the chapters in the first section provide a comprehensive overview of transfusion practices in common clinical conditions such as autoimmune hemolytic anemia, congenital hemolytic anemia, acquired hemolytic anemia, congenital coagulopathies, solid organ transplantation, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, therapeutic apheresis, and the pediatric population. Although each of the distinguished authors adds his or her own flavor to the chapters, ...
The anti-globulin or Coombs test is widely used to detect the presence of antibody in the diagnosis of autoimmune hemolytic anemia. Antibody alone or in the presence of complement injures the cell membrane permitting leakage of RBC material, allowing recognition by the reticuloendothelial cells, thereby leading to phagocytosis and destruction of RBCs. Anti-globulin reagent (Coombs serum) is prepared by immunizing rabbits with canine IgG, IgM and C3 purified from normal serum. The resulting whole antiserum is heat treated to inactivate complement and is adsorbed with normal pooled canine erythrocytes to remove nonspecific agglutinins. ...

If a hemolytic anemia is in the differential, haptoglobin, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), and bilirubin can be useful. Haptoglobin scavenges free hemoglobin and is low in hemolytic anemia.. Hemolysis may also lead to elevated LDH and bilirubin. LDH is present in red cells, and hemolysis causes release into the plasma. Bilirubin is a breakdown product of hemoglobin and becomes elevated as hemoglobin is released. Indirect hyperbilirubinemia is typically seen in hemolysis.. Review of the peripheral smear is crucial. Patients with lead poisoning will often show basophilic stippling. Microcytosis and hypochromia may be present, and reticulocyte counts may be elevated.. The direct antiglobulin test (DAT, direct Coombs test) should be negative (see chapter on laboratory testing for lead).. ...

What is Hemolytic Anemia ? Hemolytic anemia is a rare blood disorder in which red blood cells are rapidly destroyed. The severity of this type of anemia is dete
It should come as no surprise to anybody who follows this blog that I love hematology and immunology! In previous posts Ive written about various immune-mediated problems, including immune-mediated hemolytic anemia, immune-mediated thrombocytopenia, and immune-mediated polyarthropathy. This week Im sharing information about another immune-mediated condition: immune-mediated neutropenia or IMN. I hope you find the material … [Read more…]. ...
Hemolytic anemia occurs when the body does not have enough healthy red blood cells (RBCs). This is because the cells are destroyed too early. The body also does not make new RBCs fast enough to replace the ones that are destroyed. There are many types of hemolytic anemia.
Question: I have two 10-year-old offspring of a Siamese female and a male black tabby. The father had immune-mediated hemolytic anemia, and its cause remains unknown. The two offspring never have and never will go outside. I havent had them vaccinated since their father became ill in December of 2000. Since they are indoor-only cats (except for visits to the cat clinic for checkups, etc.), should I have them vaccinated? Im worried about some kind of immune illness being passed from the father of these cats, and Im afraid vaccinating them may make them more vulnerable to immune system problems.. Answer: Anemia is a condition in which there are too few red blood cells to carry the necessary amount of oxygen to the tissues. The number of red cells in the blood is roughly analogous to the amount of water in a bucket. But this bucket is leaky, so to keep the water level constant a running faucet continuously replaces the water being lost - the water flowing in replaces the water flowing out. The ...
My favorite aspect of practicing medicine is treating diseases caused by dysfunction of the immune system.
