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 ...

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 ...

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. This case report describes our experience of using this new ...
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" ...

The prevalence of autoantibodies in B cell chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (B-CLL) was investigated. A lower prevalence of autoimmune haemolytic anaemia than that found in other series was found: large numbers of non-progressive stage A disease cases were included, in which the prevalence of autoimmune haemolytic anaemia is low. Non-haematological autoantibodies were no commoner than in age matched controls. Whatever explanation is offered for autoimmune phenomena in B-CLL it must take account of the fact that those phenomena are virtually confined to autoantibodies against the formed elements of the blood.. ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

We report a rare case of a spontaneous isolated, non-traumatic, non-aneurysmal SAH in a young lady with underlying Evans syndrome - which is a rare haematological disorder of unknown frequency characterized by simultaneous or sequential development of autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) and immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), with or without immune neutropenia [3]. She was initially diagnosed 5-year prior the current presentation, when she came with complaints of intermittent, episodic bruising and bleeding, with anemic symptoms. Coombs test, and immunoglobulin G (IgG) done in a different center, was positive. Bone marrow aspiration was not pursued.. Initially described in 1951, Evans syndrome is a rare clinical entity; occurring in 0.8% to 3.7% of all patients diagnosed with ITP or AIHA at first presentation. This disorder is associated with conditions such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), lymphoproliferative disorders, and primary immune-deficiencies. Patients are at increased risk of bleeding ...
As one of the earliest acknowledged autoimmune disorders, warm antibody AIHA occurs in 1.25-2.6:100,000 persons per year [1,2]. The diagnostic panel of AIHA is mainly based upon immunohematological methods developed since mid 20th century. Our understanding of the pathogenesis of AIHA is still limited except for its high prevalence of autoantibody. Fagiolo et al. reported enhanced IL-10 but decreased IL-12 production among peripheral blood mononuclear cells from primary AIHA patients, which indicated IL-12/IL-10 imbalance and possible Th1/Th2 dysregulation [4]. However, the repeatedly observed IL-10 upregulation was later attributed to regulatory T cells for Th1 inhibition, and the key Th functional subgroup was argued to be Th1 instead of Th2 or Th17 [5,6]. In the present study, we found 2.1- and 2.9-fold elevation of plasma CXCL13, a specific chemokine ligand for CXCR5, among primary and SLE-related AIHA patients, respectively. Meanwhile, plasma cytokines hallmarked for established Th ...

Immune mediated hemolytic anemia (IMHA), also known as auto-immune mediated hemolytic anemia (AIHA), is a disease in which the bodys immune system, which is designed to attack and kill germs, attacks and kills the bodys own red blood cells. The attack begins when antibodies, which are molecules made by the immune system to target germs, instead attach to and target the animals own red blood cells for destruction. The red blood cells carry oxygen to the tissues, and the animal cannot survive without adequate oxygenation of the tissues. The causes of IMHA remain largely unknown. While some cases of IMHA may be associated with a triggering event (cancer, infection, and perhaps even vaccinations), these events do not explain why the immune system misdirects its arsenal of weapons against the animal it is meant to protect ...
A 47-year-old white woman, who was an active smoker, was referred to the emergency department for the recent onset of exertional dyspnea with chest pain. She did not have a remarkable medical history or family history of anemia and received no medications, although she took pain medication occasionally. Her clinical examination revealed pallor and conjunctival jaundice with mild hepatosplenomegaly. She displayed isolated macrocytic (mean corpuscular volume, 125 fL) anemia (hemoglobin, 4.2 g/dL). An elevated automated reticulocyte count (603 × 109/L) was confirmed by supravital staining with brilliant cresyl blue (panel B; many cells display a typical blue-stained reticulum, original magnification ×1000). Hemolysis was confirmed (lactate dehydrogenase, 2866 IU/L; bilirubin, 62 µmol/L; haptoglobin, ,0.1 g/L). The direct antiglobulin test (DAT) was originally negative, however, the examination of the blood smear showed numerous spherocytes (panel A; May-Grünwald-Giemsa stain shows sphere-shaped ...
Erythrophagocytosis by monocytes or macrophages is occasionally seen in hematologic malignancy, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis [12]. However, erythrophagocytosis by neutrophils on the peripheral blood smear is an unusual morphological phenomenon. Erythrophagocytosis by neutrophils has been reported in patients with some hemolytic anemias, particularly paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria (PCH), and other conditions including poisoning with potassium chlorate, sickle cell disease, and incompatible transfusion [3456]. Cases of erythrophagocytosis by neutrophils have rarely been observed in cold agglutinin disease (CAD) [789]. We report a female patient with CAD and the presence of erythrophagocytosis by neutrophils on the peripheral blood smear.. An 80-year-old woman was referred to our hospital because of dizziness. A few days prior to referral, she had cold symptoms, with a cough and rhinorrhea. She had a history of hypertension. Physical examination revealed ...

肺炎支原體(Mycoplasma pneumoniae、黴漿菌性肺炎)是一種可導致肺炎的支原體細菌,也有機會導致冷凝集素症(cold agglutinin disease)。這種由肺炎支原體引起的肺炎,又稱作黴漿菌性肺炎,盛行於學齡兒童。. 大多數患者只有輕微上呼吸道感染,有咳嗽、發燒、喉嚨痛、頭痛及疲倦等徵狀,有些患者有肺外症狀像是皮膚紅疹,嚴重者則可能患上肺炎,屬於非典型肺炎的一種。. 輕微黴漿菌性肺炎大多是自限性,不需藥物治療。但嚴重住院者,由於黴漿菌性肺炎不能用一般的肺炎藥來醫治,即使兒童感染了黴漿菌性肺炎,也只能用原來用於醫治成人肺炎的強效藥物來醫治,舉例來說,可以使用Macrolides類的抗生素像是Azithromycin。. ...
AIHA is the current problem - in addition to the CLL, of course. Dave has had some ups and downs the last few weeks, and hes due to start Chemo again tomorrow. But Im not convinced that his blood counts are adequate (that he can withstand a round of chemo.)

He had more blood drawn this morning, so tomorrow morning, when we meet with the doctor, well know for sure ...
Chronic lymphocytic leukemia is frequently associated with immune disturbances. The relationship between chronic lymphocytic leukemia and autoimmune cytopenias, particularly autoimmune hemolytic anemia and immune thrombocytopenia, is well established. The responsible mechanisms, particularly the role of leukemic cells in orchestrating the production of polyclonal autoantibodies, are increasingly well understood. Recent studies show that autoimmune cytopenia is not necessarily associated with poor prognosis. On the contrary, patients with anemia or thrombocytopenia due to immune mechanisms have a better outcome than those in whom these features are due to bone marrow infiltration by the disease. Moreover, fears about the risk of autoimmune hemolysis following single agent fludarabine may no longer be appropriate in the age of chemo immunotherapy regimens. However, treatment of patients with active hemolysis may pose important problems needing an individualized and clinically sound approach. The ...
Cortisone acetate is a steroid hormone that has both glucocoriticoid and mineral corticoid activities. Corticosteroids are used to provide relief for inflamed areas of the body. They lessen swelling, redness, itching, and allergic reactions. They are often used as part of the treatment for a number of different diseases, such as severe allergies or skin problems, asthma, or arthritis. Endogenous glucocorticoids and some synthetic corticoids have high affinity to the protein transcortin (also called CBG, corticosteroid-binding protein), whereas all of them bind albumin. Glucocorticoids also bind to the cytosolic glucocorticoid receptor ...

Formerly known as autoimmune hemolytic anemia or AIHA) Immune-mediated hemolytic anemia is a condition where the patients immune system begins attacking his or her own red blood cells. What occurs on a microscopic level is this: the branch of the immune system that produces antibodies begins to direct them against the patients own red blood cells. The red blood cells become quickly coated with tiny antibody proteins, essentially marking these red blood cells for destruction. When too many red blood cells are destroyed the patient is said to be anemic, and will feel cold and weak ...

Potent adjuvanted killed vaccines like those for rabies virus also can trigger immediate and delayed (vaccinosis) adverse vaccine reactions. Genetic predisposition to these disorders in humans has been linked to the leucocyte antigen D-related gene locus of the major histocompatibility complex, and is likely to have parallel associations in domestic animals.. It must be recognized, however, that we have the luxury of asking such questions today only because the risk of disease has been effectively reduced by the widespread use of vaccination programs.. Adverse Events Associated with Vaccination The clinical signs associated with vaccine reactions typically include fever, stiffness, sore joints and abdominal tenderness, susceptibility to infections, neurological disorders and encephalitis, collapse with autoagglutinated red blood cells and icterus (autoimmune hemolytic anemia, AIHA, also called immune-mediated hemolytic anemia, IMHA), or generalized petechiae and ecchymotic hemorrhages ...
... is anemia due to hemolysis , the abnormal breakdown of red blood cells either in the blood vessels (intravascular hemolysis) or elsewhere in the body (extravascular). The mechanism by which the immune system mistakes the red blood cells for a "foreign invader" varies somewhat according to the cause. It usually involves adherence of the offending agent (parasite, drug or toxin) to the surface of the red blood cells.Autoimmune hemolytic anemia can also be caused by or occur with another disease, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, and rarely it follows the use of certain drugs, such as penicillin. Though much attention has been given recently to AIHA due to evidence linking the process of vaccinating with the manifestation of this sometimes life-threatening disease, immunization is only one potential cause for this condition. In particular, a form of damaged red blood cell known as a spherocyte occurs. Finding spherocytes on a blood smear almost guarantees that some form of ...
Hi - We just lost our 6 year old chocolate lab last night and we are pretty convinced that it was caused by HeartGuard which caused Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia. Have you heard of this happening to other labs? Thank you for your response. Im so sorry to hear about your Lab. I know that it must have been quite a shock to have an apparently healthy companion suddenly become so very ill. In regard to the Heartgard causing this condition, there is no indication in the literature that ivermectin induces risk for autoimmune hemolytic disease. In fact, in some clinical studies, ivermectin and diethylcarbamazine citrate, both active components of different types of heartworm preventative, are actually used as treatment for parasite-induced autoimmune hematologic disorders (since parasites may cause secondary AIHA). It is important to keep in mind that many other factors have been implicated in AIHA. Primary or immune-mediated hemolytic anemia (IMHA) occurs when an immune reaction is targeted ...

When he came back he basically explained that he thought she night have something called Auto Immune Hemolytic Anemia (AIHA). Basically its a genetic disease that means her body started rejecting its own red blood cells. He said that it was treatable with steroids, but that it would get worse before it got better because it would take a few days for the steroids to work and that she would need all her strength to make new red blood cells. He also said that vomiting was a side effect and that we would need to make sure she ate and that wed need to bring her in every few days for more blood tests. And that if she survived the first 30 days it would probably go into remission. He also said she might need a transfusion in the meantime and that it would come from his own dog if she did. He said it was a tough disease, but he had dealt with this successfully with several dogs. He seemed pretty confident and it sounded like we had caught it early. ...

Hi! I hope everyone is doing well. Gee, I havent had a chance to read yalls journals because Ive been too busy. Things seem to finally be turning around here. I can finally really breathe a sigh of relief. I really dont believe John is going to die now, for the first time. I wasnt sure before. But now he finally seems to be responding to treatment for the Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia. The Hemotologist/Oncologist team told us yesterday. And I believe it because John hasnt required as much blood in the past few days, and his lab numbers have been better. Yay! That doesnt mean he doesnt have a long way to go, but I know he will make it! I just know it! The treatment that seems to be doing the trick is chemo that is called Rituxin. He had a dose last night at 9:30 PM and he was done at 11:45 PM. Why they did it that late I have no idea. I stayed around because it has been known to have side effects. I got home at midnight. This was Johns third week of the chemo drug. He could possibly need ...
Hmmm. Lets see if I can keep this short because it is a little after one in the morning. Probably not, LOL.. Today was a long day. John had several tests and visits from specialists. Both Dr. Ehmann, the rotating oncologist, and Dr. Claxton, his regular oncologist came in for awhile. Dr. E. listened to Johns lungs and announced to his students that there was no need for a CT scan, that he could hear something in Johns lungs. Then he asked the students to listen to see if they could hear it. They each took turns. John told me later he was grateful that he served some purpose for the students education, LOL.. Dr. Claxton and Dr. Ehmann conferred and decided that John should probably get IVIG again and chemo to try to stop the Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia. He will get it after the pneumonia clears up. I am hoping John will be able to get it at home and not in Hershey. I like it here, but I dont want to live here over the holiday season! I think it will take at least four weeks to be ...

Phagocytosis of opsonized target cells has been recognized for a long time as a major pathogenic mechanism for IgG autoantibody-mediated autoimmune blood diseases such as thrombocytopenia and anemia. Indeed, IgG receptors such as FcγRIII and FcγRIV are potent mediators of phagocytosis of immune complexes involving IgG Abs of the appropriate isotype. The mechanisms responsible for the pathogenicity of IgM autoantibodies are not as well elucidated. Trapping in the spleen and liver of RBCs agglutinated by IgM anti-erythrocyte autoantibodies may account for IgM-mediated anemia (13, 26). Complement-mediated lysis of IgM-opsonized red cells or platelets (31) is another mechanism that might lead to anemia or thrombocytopenia, respectively, although rarely.. Because IgM receptors remained unknown for a long time, it was not so easy to explain IgM-mediated autoimmune thrombocytopenia, although complement fixation on IgM might also potentially activate phagocytosis involving complement receptors ...

NIH Rare Diseases : 50 purine nucleoside phosphorylase (pnp) deficiency is a disorder of the immune system (primary immunodeficiency) characterized by recurrent infections, neurologic symptoms, and autoimmune disorders. pnp deficiency causes a shortage of white blood cells, called t-cells, that help fight infection. some people with this condition develop neurologic symptoms, such as stiff or rigid muscles (spasticity), uncoordinated movements (ataxia), developmental delay, and intellectual disability. in addition, pnp deficiency is associated with an increased risk to develop autoimmune disorders, such as autoimmune hemolytic anemia, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (itp), autoimmune neutropenia, thyroiditis, and lupus. pnp deficiency is caused by mutations in the pnp gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. treatment with bone marrow transplantation can improve the immune system problems associated with this condition, but does not improve the neurologic symptoms. last ...
The authors also stated that a Coombs test was not administered because the patient had already received corticosteroids.1 The Coombs test is an essential diagnostic test in the clinical approach to hemolytic anemia because of its substantial positive predictive value and its ability to differentiate warm from cold autoantibodies.3 This differentiation is important as the treatments associated with each condition vary. The administration of corticosteroids does not preclude obtaining a Coombs test in this case1 for two reasons. First and most importantly, several different mechanisms of corticosteroid action in hemolytic anemia have been described in the literature, but only decreased antibody production directly affects the Coombs test.3 However, several weeks of therapy are usually required before this effect is observed.3 Second, the patient in this case1 received only 40 mg/d of prednisone-below the current weight-dependent guidelines of 1 mg/kg prednisone (usually administered in dosages of ...
Lymphoproliferative syndrome-1 is an autosomal recessive primary immunodeficiency characterized by onset in early childhood of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated immune dysregulation, manifest as lymphoma, lymphomatoid granulomatosis, hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, Hodgkin disease, and/or hypogammaglobulinemia. Autoimmune disorders, such as autoimmune hemolytic anemia or renal disease, may also occur. Patients show a high EBV viral load and decreased invariant natural killer T cells. It is unknown whether patients with ITK mutations are intrinsically susceptible to development of lymphoma or dysgammaglobulinemia in the absence of EBV infection (summary by {3:Stepensky et al., 2011}; {2:Linka et al., 2012}). For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of lymphoproliferative syndrome, see XLP1 ({308240 ...
The classic laboratory finding of hemolysis is anemia with an elevated reticulocyte count. The reticulocytosis reflects normal bone marrow function and occurs in response to the premature RBC destruction; reticulocytes are larger than older erythrocytes and have a blue-purple color known as polychromasia (Fig. 433-1). Reticulocytosis generally occurs 3 to 5 days after a sudden drop in hemoglobin concentration but is relatively constant in children with congenital hemolytic anemia. Making the diagnosis of hemolytic anemia begins with recognizing the constellation of signs and symptoms, then obtaining a complete blood count with reticulocyte count, and finally examining the peripheral blood smear. Additional laboratory findings supporting the diagnosis of hemolysis include elevated total serum bilirubin and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH; LDH being released from RBCs during hemolysis). Intravascular hemolysis also causes decreased or undetectable levels of haptoglobin, but this test is not specific so ...

Pyruvate kinase deficiency is an inherited disorder that affects red blood cells, which carry oxygen to the bodys tissues. People with this disorder have a condition known as chronic hemolytic anemia, in which red blood cells are broken down (undergo hemolysis) prematurely, resulting in a shortage of red blood cells (anemia). Specifically, pyruvate kinase deficiency is a common cause of a type of inherited hemolytic anemia called hereditary nonspherocytic hemolytic anemia. In hereditary nonspherocytic hemolytic anemia, the red blood cells do not assume a spherical shape as they do in some other forms of hemolytic anemia.. Chronic hemolytic anemia can lead to unusually pale skin (pallor), yellowing of the eyes and skin (jaundice), extreme tiredness (fatigue), shortness of breath (dyspnea), and a rapid heart rate (tachycardia). An enlarged spleen (splenomegaly), an excess of iron in the blood, and small pebble-like deposits in the gallbladder or bile ducts (gallstones) are also common in this ...
