Autoantibodies to gastrin in patients with pernicious anaemia--a novel antibody. (1/227)

Autoantibodies arise when there is a breakdown in immunological tolerance. Autoantibodies to parietal cells and intrinsic factor are found in autoimmune atrophic gastritis (AAG) and are associated with elevated plasma gastrin. Endogenous gastrin autoantibodies have not been described to date. The aim of this study was to investigate the occurrence of autoantibodies to gastrin. Plasma from 50,000 patients, including more than 2000 with AAG, was tested. Gastrin was measured by radioimmunoassay (RIA) in whole plasma and the presence of autoantibody determined by using a control which omitted assay antibody. The quantity and affinity of gastrin autoantibodies was assessed. Three patients had autoantibodies to gastrin. All three had AAG and pernicious anaemia (PA). The antibodies were of low titre and relatively high affinity. Free circulating plasma gastrin levels were within the normal range, but total gastrin levels were elevated. This is the first description of autoantibodies to endogenous gastrin. The incidence of antibodies to gastrin is low, they are found in association with PA, and they may lead to falsely low measurements of plasma gastrin.  (+info)

Potential difference across the normal and the abnormal gastric mucosa in man. (2/227)

The mucosal potential difference in the body of the stomach was measured in 18 patients with gastric ulcers, five with gastritis, and three with pernicious anaemia. The results were compared with those of 12 normal volunteers. Significantly lower than normal levels were found in the groups of patients with gastric ulcers and gastritis. The patients with pernicious anaemia had even lower potential differences. In an additional 25 subjects, measurements were made in the duodenal bulb and at five sites in the stomach under direct vision at endoscopy. Biopsies were taken from each site for histology. Subjects with gastritis at the high lesser curve had a significantly lower potential difference at that site than those without gastritis. In the latter group, the potential difference at the high lesser curve was as low as in the antrum, and invariably lower than at the high greater curve.  (+info)

Immunomodulation by vitamin B12: augmentation of CD8+ T lymphocytes and natural killer (NK) cell activity in vitamin B12-deficient patients by methyl-B12 treatment. (3/227)

It has been suggested that vitamin B12 (vit.B12) plays an important role in immune system regulation, but the details are still obscure. In order to examine the action of vit.B12 on cells of the human immune system, lymphocyte subpopulations and NK cell activity were evaluated in 11 patients with vit.B12 deficiency anaemia and in 13 control subjects. Decreases in the number of lymphocytes and CD8+ cells and in the proportion of CD4+ cells, an abnormally high CD4/CD8 ratio, and suppressed NK cell activity were noted in patients compared with control subjects. In all 11 patients and eight control subjects, these immune parameters were evaluated before and after methyl-B12 injection. The lymphocyte counts and number of CD8+ cells increased both in patients and in control subjects. The high CD4/CD8 ratio and suppressed NK cell activity were improved by methyl-B12 treatment. Augmentation of CD3-CD16+ cells occurred in patients after methyl-B12 treatment. In contrast, antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) activity, lectin-stimulated lymphocyte blast formation, and serum levels of immunoglobulins were not changed by methyl-B12 treatment. These results indicate that vit.B12 might play an important role in cellular immunity, especially relativing to CD8+ cells and the NK cell system, which suggests effects on cytotoxic cells. We conclude that vit.B12 acts as an immunomodulator for cellular immunity.  (+info)

The rise in circulating gastrin with age is due to increases in gastric autoimmunity and Helicobacter pylori infection. (4/227)

To assess the effect of increasing age on circulating gastrin, we surveyed serum gastrin, Helicobactor pylori seroantibody status and gastric autoimmunity in 366 hospitalized patients aged 15-90 years. Data were subjected to multivariate analysis, using logarithmic transformation to normalize the distribution of gastrin concentrations (presented as geometric means and 95% CIs). The frequency of H. pylori-positive antibody status increased with age from 28% in the second decade to > 70% beyond the fourth decade. Fasting gastrin concentrations rose significantly from 44 ng/l (41-48) in the second decade to 95 ng/l (67-131) by the eighth decade (p = 0.001) in the total group. Twenty-seven patients (6.8% of the total) tested positive for gastric auto-antibodies: 2% of patients in the second decade, rising to 15.9% in the eighth decade. These patients formed a distinct group with respect to circulating gastrin concentrations. Excluding these 27, fasting gastrin concentrations still rose significantly, from 44 ng/l (41-48) in the second decade, to 67 ng/l (50-89) in the eighth decade (p = 0.003) in the remaining 341 patients. Fasting gastrin concentrations were significantly higher in patients who were H. pylori-seropositive (59 ng/l, 54-64 vs. sero-negative 41 ng/l, 37-46) (p = 0.002), and there was no increase in circulating gastrin concentrations with increasing age in either the H. pylori-positive or the H. pylori-negative group. The increase in circulating fasting gastrin observed with increasing age is due to an increased incidence of gastric antibodies associated with auto-immune atrophic gastritis, and an increased incidence of H. pylori infection.  (+info)

Thyrogastric autoimmune disease. Studies on the cell-mediated immune system and histocompatibility antigens. (5/227)

Cell-mediated immune responses were studied in autoimmune diseases of thyrogastric type, Hashimoto's thyroiditis and autoimmune pernicious anaemia-type gastritis. Specific cell-mediated immunity was investigated by the leucocyte migration inhibition procedure, and general cell-mediated immunity (T-cell performance) was studied by standard in vivo and in vitro tests. In thyrogastric autoimmune diseases inhibition of migration of leucocytes was induced by thyroglobulin and gastric parietal cell microsomes; under conditions of presumably low cellular sensitization, stimulation of migration was observed. There was no depression of general cell-mediated immunity, in contrast to what occurs in systemic lupus erythematosus and related autoimmune diseases. A weak association of autoimmune gastritis with HL-A3 and HL-A7 (P LESS THAN 0.05) lost significance when an appropriate correction was applied; this weakness with HL-A clearly does not explain the strong genetic component in thyroid and gastric autoimmunity.  (+info)

Measles antibodies and autoantibodies in autoimmune disorders. (6/227)

Measles CF antibodies have been examined in the sera of patients with a variety of clinical disorders associated with the production of autoantibodies. Previous reports of high-titre reactions in DLE and chronic active hepatitis have been confirmed, the titres in the latter disorder being particularly elevated. Mean antibody titres to measles in patients with rheumatoid arthritis were significantly lower than in matched controls, and an inverse correlation between measles antibody levels and serum globulin levels was found. Measles antibody titres in patients with myasthenia gravis and primary biliary cirrhosis did not differ significantly from those found in controls. However, subdivision of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, myasthenia gravis and primary biliary cirrhosis showed that the presence of anti-nuclear antibody (ANA) was associated with significantly increased measles antibody levels compared with the ANA-negative sera. The presence of gastric parietal cell antibody or thyroid microsomal antibody did not appear to be associated with increased measles antibody levels, whether or not they occurred in association with previous anaemia or thyroid disease. Possible explanations for these findings in terms of immune complex formation and immune hyper-reactivity are discussed.  (+info)

Serum leptin levels in patients with sideropenic and pernicious anemia: the influence of anemia treatment. (7/227)

Leptin is a 16 kDa protein hormone involved in food intake, energy expenditure regulation and numerous other physiological processes. Recently, leptin has been demonstrated to stimulate hematopoietic stem cells in vitro. The aim of our study was to measure serum leptin and erythropoietin levels in patients with sideropenic (n = 18) and pernicious anemia (n=7) before and during anemia treatment. Blood samples for the blood count, leptin and erythropoietin determinations were obtained by venepunction at the time of the diagnosis of anemia and after partial and complete anemia recovery. The relationships of serum leptin levels to erythropoietin levels and blood count parameters were also studied. No significant differences in serum leptin levels between the groups studied were found. The serum leptin levels in none of groups were modified by treatment of anemia (basal levels, the levels during treatment and after anemia recovery were 13.1+/-14.5 vs 12.8+/-15.6 vs 12.0+/-14.8 ng/ml in patients with sideropenic anemia and 7.8+/-8.5 vs 9.5+/-10.0 vs 8.9+/-6.6 ng/ml in patients with pernicious anemia). The erythropoietin levels were higher at the time of anemia in both groups and decreased significantly after partial or complete recovery. Serum leptin levels in both groups correlated positively with the body mass index. No significant relationships were found between serum leptin levels and erythropoietin values or various parameters of the peripheral blood count. We conclude that serum leptin levels in patients with sideropenic and pernicious anemia positively correlate with the body mass index but are not influenced by the treatment of anemia.  (+info)

Screening for hypothyroidism in elderly inpatients. (8/227)

Routine biochemical screening for hypothyroidism in 2000 geriatric inpatients proved valuable and practicable and yielded 46 cases (2.3%). A non-specific clinical picture was particularly common, with less than a third of the cases showing "typical" signs and symptoms. Psychiatric manifestations, especially depression, were important and frequent and responded well to thyroxine. There was a preponderance of female cases of hypothyroidism and a strong association with other autoimmune diseases, notably pernicious anaemia and rheumatoid arthritis.  (+info)

This book could save you years of ill health! Vitamin B12 deficiency, often caused by pernicious anaemia, can be a devastating condition if left untreated, leading to irreversible nerve damage and disability after years of exhaustion and mental fog. Its symptoms creep up on sufferers and are under-recognized by doctors; tests to confirm it and underlying pernicious anaemia, are problematic. Martyn Hooper, the founder of the Pernicious Anaemia Society, now brings together vital information about the condition and real-life stories - including his own and those of many members of the Society - that will help sufferers and their friends and families recognize the condition and understand how best to tackle it. In particular, the book draws on the findings of a survey of Society members that give new clarity to the complex issues involved. Click here for the latest information and advice from The Pernicious Anaemia Society in Martyn Hoopers new book: What you need to know about Pernicious Anaemia and
It affects males and females equally. The most common form, Adult Onset Pernicious Anemia, affects people after the age of 35 years. Studies suggest that about 1% of the elderly population is affected. Congenital Pernicious Anemia is very rare and has an onset of age between 4 and 28 months. Juvenile Pernicious Anemia has symptoms similar to the adult-onset type, seems to occur between the ages of 4 and 20 years. North America and in Europe among people of Scandinavian, English, or Irish descent has the higher prevalence. It is extremely rare among Asians. Approximately 1.9% of cases may go undiagnosed. Pernicious anemia shows a 10-fold increase in patients with multiple myeloma and a 250-fold increase in adults with immunoglobulin deficiency. ...
Diabetes mellitus is mentioned by Giffin and Bowler1 as being one of the diseases which may be associated with anemia. Joslin2 in a series of six thousand diabetics observed five instances in which diabetes mellitus and pernicious anemia co-existed.

In the present paper are presented the considerations which have convinced the writer that pernicious anemia and sprue are two distinct disease entities, and that the former is not a final picture of the latter or vice-versa, as Christian (1) and others have suggested. On the basis of a detailed study of 45 cases of sprue in Porto Rico, the conclusion has been reached that in the average case the diagnosis is easily made by the general practitioner in routine examination. It is only occasionally, and this in the advanced stage of sprue,-the so-called sprue cachexia,-that the clinical picture bears such a resemblance to pernicious anemia as to readily lead to confusion. Even in these instances the writer is convinced that a thorough clinical and laboratory examination by the ordinary methods available in the average hospital will establish an absolute diagnosis in over 75 per cent of the cases.

1. The absorption of radioactive cobalamin was measured by a whole-body counting technique in control subjects and in patients with pernicious anaemia. 2. The absorption of cyanocobalamin by patients with pernicious anaemia was decreased by charcoal but not by bile or saliva. 3. The absorption of cyanocobalamin by control subjects was not affected by food but was significantly increased by pentagastrin. With pentagastrin the absorption of cyanocobalamin was significantly greater than that of hydroxocobalamin. The hog intrinsic factor-mediated absorption of cyanocobalamin by patients with pernicious anaemia was significantly depressed by pentagastrin. 4. The effect of increasing the mass of hog intrinsic factor concentrate on the absorption of cyanocobalamin by patients with pernicious anaemia could be described by a function relating the amount absorbed, the mass of intrinsic factor and two constants. The relationship implies that when the mass of intrinsic factor is small the amount of ...

Pernicious anaemia is the most common cause of vitamin B12 deficiency in the UK.. Pernicious anaemia is an autoimmune condition that affects your stomach. An autoimmune condition means your immune system (the bodys natural defence system that protects against illness and infection) attacks your bodys healthy cells.. In your stomach, vitamin B12 is combined with a protein called intrinsic factor. This mix of vitamin B12 and intrinsic factor is then absorbed into the body in part of the gut called the distal ileum.. Pernicious anaemia causes your immune system to attack the cells in your stomach that produce the intrinsic factor, which means your body is unable to absorb vitamin B12.. The exact cause of pernicious anaemia is unknown, but the condition is more common in women around 60 years of age, people with a family history of the condition and those with another autoimmune condition, such as Addisons disease or vitiligo. ...
Anemia is a deficiency in red blood cells. Iron, B12 and folic acid are required to produce red blood cells. Pernicious anemia is a condition in which there is thinning of the lining of the stomach with a subsequent lack of production of a substance called intrinsic factor. Intrinsic factor is produced by the cells of the stomach - it is required for the absorption of B12 from the small intestine. So, sufferers of this condition become vitamin B12 deficient. This situation causes anemia ...

and the not so good part?. Well, about 6 weeks before my Pernicious Anaemia diagnosis, I started experiencing numbness and tingling, like pins and needles but not quite that, in my finger tips. As it was only in my left hand initially I (stupidly!) put this down to excessive guitar playing. Thats really quite terrible terminology because as any musician knows there is, of course, No Such Thing as excessive guitar playing! Pfft!. Anywho… despite finding it really strange I actually just ignored it for a couple of weeks. Until it spread to my other hand. Actually, I would have probably ignored this too if it hadnt been for the horrendous neck and back clicking that Id been experiencing for a number of months as well as the interference with guitar practice. Now, I dont go rushing off to the docs for the slightest ache and pain (childbirth with no pain relief gives me a pretty high threshold for deciding whats painful and whats not!) but when there are multiple symptoms cropping up then ...

Pernicious anaemia is a result of your bodys immune system attacking the cells within the stomach that produce a protein vital for the absorption of vitamin B12.. Meat, fish and dairy products all naturally contain Vitamin B12, which is normally absorbed into the body through the stomach. For this process to occur, gastric parietal cells in the stomach release a protein called intrinsic factor.. People who have pernicious anaemia unfortunately produce antibodies which attack these gastric parietal cells. As a result, the amount of intrinsic factor. Due to this deficiency the body is anaemic because it cannot produce red blood cells that are fully functional and therefore do not carry enough oxygen.. As vitamin B12 is crucial for many biochemical reactions, such as protecting your nerve cells through myelin production, converting fat into energy, and supporting red blood cell production, the results of pernicious anemia can be debilitating.. As mentioned above, eating meat and dairy products ...
There are many forms of anemia such as pernicious anemia. Pernicious anemia is when your body cannot absorb vitamin b12 from food you eat, as your body attacks the cells in your stomach(1). This is an auto-immune disease. It is a complex disorder and consists of hematological, gastric and immunological alterations[1]. The inability to absorb b12 vitamins stems from lack of a protein called Intrinsic factor(IF) that is made in stomach. The lack of IF occurs as a result of the activity of body immunes system that attacks and destroys cells that produce IF.There are also other factors that play a key role in b12 deficiency such as strict vegetarian diet, infections, surgery. Pernicious anemia is also called macrocytic anemia[2]. When there is a defficiency in b12 vitamin, the body produces abnormally large red blood cells called marocytes. Due to such large size, macrocytes will not be able to leave bone marrow, where they are made, and enter bloodstream. This decreases the amount of ...
Pernicious anemia earned its name because it was once a fatal illness before treatment options were discovered. Now, it is common knowledge in the medical community that pernicious anemia--also known as megaloblastic anemia--can be treated with vitamin B12. As such, vitamin B12 and pernicious anemia are intrinsically linked. What is Pernicious Anemia? Anemia is a medical condition in which the body decreases its production of red blood cells, the bloods hemoglobin count decreases, and/or the blood ...
Many had been said, from olden times, on the relation between digestive organ (esp. stomach) and hematopoiesis, and it has been much clarified in appreciation of the discovery of liver therapy for pernicious anemia by Minot and Murphy (1926), the dissertation of the in-and extrinsic factors theory by Castle and Townsend (1929), and of the studies of many other authorities. The atrophy of the stomach is responsible for the occurrence of anemia and it has been reported that the microcytic or pernicious anemia had often been observed after total gastrectomy in man. But in the animal there were no report of cases of pernicious anemia after total gastrectomy. The author has performed the animal experiment in rats, after resecting the right portion of stomach as Jacobson etc. had done and also the left portion of the stomach. That has been resulted the lack of storage and stirring of diet. In these rats were observed the blood picture of peripheral and of bone marrow for 400 days after operation. ...
Definition. This is megaloblastic anemia due to deficiency of vitamin B12, because of malabsorption, which is believed as an autoimmune phenomenon to gastric parietal cells and their products. Parietal cells are the source of intrinsic factor. This intrinsic factor binds the B12 and allows its absorption in the ileum.. ...
Executive summary: Liver therapy for pernicious anemia. Military service: US Army (1917-18). As a young man, William Murphys only interest was in practicing medicine, but he could not afford tuition to medical school. Instead he taught math in public schools, saving from each paycheck for eventual admission to the University of Oregon Medical School, where, after one year of study, he was unable to afford his second years tuition. He spent two years in the Army, before discovering and applying for a peculiar fellowship at Harvard, endowed by 1885 alumnus William Stanislaus Murphy (no relation) specifically to help fund collegiate education of men of the name of Murphy. The fund for Murphys has since been depleted, but it allowed William Murphy to become Dr Murphy in 1922.. He then practiced in Boston and taught at Harvard, where he was drawn into research into research on diabetes mellitus and pernicious anemia. Working with Dr George R. Minot, Murphy noted that anemia patients showed marked ...

High specificity for pernicious anaemia. A positive result is sufficient to establish the diagnosis.. Sensitivity is low thus a negative result does not exclude the diagnosis of pernicious anaemia.. Type 1 (blocking) antibody prevents the attachment of vitamin B12 to intrinsic factor: present in 50-60% of patients with pernicious anaemia.. Type 2 (precipitating) antibody prevents attachment of the vitamin B12-intrinsic factor complex to ileal receptors: present in 30% of patients with pernicious anaemia, and only in those who also have Type 1 antibodies.. Immunoassay kits which rely on blocking function of antibodies are usually less sensitive.. ...
Pernicious anemia (PA) is an autoimmune disease characterized by atrophic gastritis and deficiency in intrinsic factor leading to impairment of vitamin B12 absorption in the ileum. Anemia is commonly found in rheumatoid arthritis (RA); however, PA is rarely found in RA. There are few reports describing patients with both conditions; none in Korea to date. We report on a case of a 46-year-old female who presented with hypesthesia and general weakness. She was previously diagnosed as seropositive RA with myelodysplastic syndrome. She had severely impaired sensation, especially for vibration and proprioception in all limbs. Subacute combined degeneration was observed on her magnetic resonance imaging and serum vitamin B12 level was very low. Further exam results were consistent with PA and her symptoms improved with cobalamin injection. This case demonstrates that PA should be considered in RA patients presenting with both central nervous system manifestations and anemia. ...

Vitamin B12 requires an intrinsic factor (a protein secreted by the stomach) to be absorbed. If there is a deficit of its absorption caused by a gastric involvement (usually 90% of cases is autoimmune), it can cause a decrease in the manufacture of intrinsic factor and vitamin B12 is not properly absorbed even when ingested in the necessary amounts. This malabsorption leads to a type of anemia called pernicious anemia.. Pernicious anemia is another type of megaloblastic anemia. It does not appear as a result of a deficit intake of vitamin B12, but the deficit is produced because an autoimmune disorder.. In contrast, megaloblastic anemia is caused by shortage of intake or absorption of two different vitamins, vitamin B9 or folic acid and / or vitamin B12, either one, the other or both.. Another type of anemia, macrocytic normochromic anemia,can be caused by a deficiency of vitamin B12, due to the combined action of abuse of alcohol intake.. In addition, cyanocobalamin or vitamin B12 is also ...

3 Not making intrinsic factor. Another chemical the stomach produces for digesting vitamin B12 is intrinsic factor. Certain autoimmune disorders may inhibit your bodys ability to absorb vitamin B12 by attacking stomach cells before they have a chance to produce this necessary protein. Regardless of how many vitamin B12 supplements you swallow, the B12 never reaches the small intestines, so it never enters the bloodstream. Pernicious anemia, resulting in diminished red blood cell production, is a common occurrence when intrinsic factor is lacking.. Ive heard of the X Factor and Fear Factor…But whats Intrinsic Factor?. #4 Gastrointestinal conditions and surgeries. The ileum of the small intestine is responsible for digesting vitamin B12. Located at the very bottom of the intestinal tract, the ileum grabs vitamin B12 and dispenses it to your blood supply. But if your ileum is not working properly, then you cannot derive the many benefits of vitamin B12.. Gastrointestinal factors that ...
Vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia (pernicious anemia). Vitamin B-12 deficiency can result from a diet lacking in vitamin B-12, which is found mainly in meat, eggs and milk. Vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia can also occur if your small intestine cant absorb vitamin B-12. This may be due to surgery to your stomach or small intestine (such as gastric bypass surgery), abnormal bacterial growth in your small intestine, or an intestinal disease, such as Crohns disease or celiac disease, that interferes with absorption of the vitamin. Vitamin B-12 deficiency can also be caused by a tapeworm ingested from contaminated fish because the tapeworm saps nutrients from your body. However, a vitamin B-12 deficiency is most often due to a lack of a substance called intrinsic factor.. Intrinsic factor is a protein secreted by the stomach that joins vitamin B-12 in the stomach and escorts it through the small intestine to be absorbed by your bloodstream. Without intrinsic factor, vitamin B-12 cant be absorbed and ...
Thomas Addison (April 1793 - 29 June 1860) was a renowned 19th-century English physician and scientist. He is traditionally regarded as one of the great men of Guys Hospital in London. Among other pathologies, he discovered Addisons disease (a degenerative disease of the adrenal glands) and Addisonian anemia (pernicious anemia), a hematological disorder later found to be caused by failure to absorb vitamin B12. Thomas Addison was born in April 1793, but his exact birthdate is not known. He was born in Longbenton, near Newcastle upon Tyne, the son of Sarah and Joseph Addison, a grocer and flour dealer in Long Benton. He attended the local Thomas Rutter school and then went to the Royal Free Grammar School in Newcastle upon Tyne. He learned Latin so well that he made notes in Latin and spoke it fluently. Addisons father wanted him to become a lawyer, but he entered the University of Edinburgh Medical School in 1812 as a medical student. He became a member of the Royal Medical Society, which ...

Vitamin B12 deficiency is common among older adults, even with dietary intakes well in excess of current recommendations. Severe clinical B12 deficiency (i.e. pernicious anaemia) leads to irreversible neurological damage, but once diagnosed, can be treated effectively with B12 injections. A much more common cause of low vitamin B12 status in older adults is food-bound malabsorption owing to atrophic gastritis. This in turn leads to reduced gastric acid secretion, thus limiting B12 absorption from food (given the essential role of gastric acid in releasing B12 from food proteins). Proton pump inhibitor (PPI) drugs reduce gastric acid secretion, similar to atrophic gastritis, thus there is a concern that these medications may lead to vitamin B12 malabsorption. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate biomarker status of vitamin B12 in relation to atrophic gastritis and PPI usage. Data were accessed from The Trinity Ulster Department of Agriculture (TUDA) Ageing Cohort Study, a ...
The risk factors that can cause a person to be more susceptible to gastritis can involve autoimmune disease, reflux of bile to stomach, old age, stress, alcohol abuse, regular use of painkilling medicines, bacterial infection (Helicobacter pylori), and other medical conditions.. Autoimmune Disease. When you have an autoimmune problem, your bodys defense mechanism fights your own body particularly by working against your cells that eventually might lead to a particular type of gastritis called autoimmune gastritis. People suffering from specific autoimmune diseases like pernicious anemia or Hashimotos disease are highly prone to developing gastritis.. Reflux of Bile to Stomach. Stomach acid (bile) can go back to the esophagus due to a condition in the lower gastric sphincter (the sphincter that prevents stomach bile from flowing back to the esophagus) or due to a gastrointestinal surgical procedure. These two situations can cause chronic gastritis.. Old Age. Seniors (people 60 years and older) ...
A 61-year-old woman with a history of pernicious anemia presented with progressive muscle weakness and dysarthria. Hypokalemic paralysis (serum potassium, 1.4 mEq/L) due to distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA) was diagnosed. After excluding several possible causes, dRTA was considered autoimmune. However, the patient did not meet criteria for any of the autoimmune disorders classically associated with dRTA. She had very high antibody titers against parietal cells, intrinsic factor, and thyroid peroxidase (despite normal thyroid function). The patient consented to a kidney biopsy, and acid-base transporters, anion exchanger type 1 (AE1), and pendrin were undetectable by immunofluorescence. Indirect immunofluorescence detected diminished abundance of AE1- and pendrin-expressing intercalated cells in the kidney, as well as staining by the patients serum of normal human intercalated cells and parietal cells expressing the adenosine triphosphatase hydrogen/potassium pump ...
Vitamin B12 English | Español Summary Vitamin B12 or cobalamin plays essential roles in folate metabolism and in the synthesis of the citric acid cycle intermediate, succinyl-CoA. (More information) Vitamin B12 deficiency is commonly associated with chronic stomachinflammation, which may contribute to an autoimmune vitamin B12malabsorption syndrome called pernicious anemia and to a food-bound vitamin…

Regulatory T cells curb unwanted immune responses and regulate responses to microflora and it is now clear that regulatory T cells play an important role in a number of chronic inflammatory diseases of the gut. First, regulatory T cells are crucial in controlling immune responses to gastric autoantigens and thus preventing autoimmune gastritis and pernicious anemia. Second, regulatory T cells may modulate the response to Helicobacter pylori, thus affecting the ability of the immune system to clear the pathogen and mediate damage to the gastric mucosa. Finally, regulatory T cells play an important role in preventing damaging inflammatory responses to commensal organisms in the lower gut, thus guarding against inflammatory bowel diseases. In the present review, we examine the actions of regulatory T cells in the gut and conclude that further understanding of regulatory T cell biology may lead to new therapeutic approaches to chronic gastrointestinal disease ...

Addisonian crisis is a serious life threatening condition caused when the adrenal glands stop producing cortisol hormone. Symptoms include weakness and debility, dizziness, low blood pressure and rapid heartbeats.
There is a paper (R. A. Waterland and R. L. Jertle Transposable elements: targets for early nutritional effects on epignentic Gene regulation MOLECULAR CELL BIOLOGY August 23, 2003 pages 5293-300) that recounts a study in which yellow agouti mice were treated with a cocktail of folic acid, vitamin B12, choline and betaine as a dietary supplement resulting in changes in the methylation of DNA, with the sites located. Folic acid comes from foliage. Somebody threw some leaves into sodium hydroxide, extracted some salts, purified them, neutralized them and separated an acid by that name. Medically folic acid is necessary for DNA production among other things. Lacking it produces an anemia because the red blood cells cannot be made easily. Vitamin B12 is also needed for cell reproduction and lacking it, or lacking the ability to absorb it also produces an anemia, pernicious anemia. The lack also causes a kind of paralysis. Years ago, it was standard practice if a patient had a folic acid ...
Vitamin D supplementation should be used with caution in those with hypercalcemia or conditions that may lead to hypercalcemia such as hyperparathyroidism and those who form calcium-containing kidney stones. High doses of vitamin D can lead to elevated levels of calcium that reside in the blood and soft tissues. Bone pain, high blood pressure, formation of kidney stones, renal failure, and increased risk of heart disease can occur.. Folic acid, especially in doses above 0.1 mg daily, may obscure pernicious anemia, in that hematologic remission may occur while neurological manifestations remain progressive.. The use of folic acid doses above 1 mg daily may precipitate or exacerbate the neurological damage of vitamin B12 deficiency.. Avoid Over dosage. Keep out of the reach of children.. ...

The human immune system is amazing in its remarkable ability to determine what is self and what is non-self, or in other words, what is a part of the body and what is foreign to the body. It is able to tag what is non-self so it can be destroyed and eliminated from the system. This enables it to get rid of harmful viruses, fungus, bacteria and parasites.. Unfortunately, the immune system can malfunction in its ability to distinguish between what belongs to the body and what doesnt. When this happens, the immune system starts tagging the bodys own tissues for destruction. Like an officer acting on bad information can accidently attack and kill his own troops in what is ironically called friendly fire, important body tissues are tagged and destroyed, resulting in the serious health problems known as autoimmune disorders.. Some of the more common disorders that are thought to be autoimmune in nature are rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, celiac disease, pernicious anemia, vitiligo, scleroderma, ...

I am so grateful I found your website! I have been so overwhelmed by finding out I have the heterozygous mutation MTHFR C677T. For me it started in 2012 when I was found to be extremely deficient in vitamin B12, my level being under 100. He at first assumed it might be pernicious anemia as my grandfather also had low levels of b12 which ultimately led him to early Alzheimers. My doctor immediately started me on bi-weekly b12 injections only to find they werent bring up my levels. At all. In fact the injections made be incredibly sleepy for 3 days & then would only raise my level by 40 or so. It was then my homocysteine levels came in high & I was also put on methylated folate. After 8 months if folate & bi-weekly B12 injections I was barely over a b12 level of 300. At this point I was referred to a neurologist & a gastrologist. The neurologist decided to combine the B12 injection with a B-complex injection & finally I felt amazing! My next blood test came back with my B12 level being over ...

EXPANDED ABSTRACT KEY WORDS: * essential vitamins and minerals * DNA damage * aging * cancer Americans intake of the 40 essential micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, and other biochemicals that humans require) is commonly thought to be adequate. Classic deficiency diseases, such as scurvy, beriberi, pernicious anemia, and rickets, are rare. The evidence suggests, however, that much chronic metabolic damage occurs at levels between the level that causes acute micronutrient deficiency disease and the recommended dietary allowances (RDAs).5 In addition, the prevention of more subtle metabolic damage may not be addressed by current RDAs. When one input in the metabolic network is inadequate, repercussions are felt on a large number of systems and can lead to degenerative disease. This may, for example, result in an increase in DNA damage (and cancer), neuron decay (and cognitive dysfunction) or mitochondrial decay (and accelerated aging and degenerative diseases). The optimum amount of folic acid ...

In the nineteenth century, hospital practice had been revolutionised by the introduction of anaesthesia, aseptic technique and skilled nursing. The hospitals which the National Health Service inherited also faced the challenge of continually evolving medical techniques. Amongst the advances which had taken place between the wars were improvements in diagnostic methods, the introduction of contrast media into radiography, the isolation of insulin, the introduction of liver extract for pernicious anaemia, the first effective sulphonamide and the development of cardiac catheterisation. The war had stimulated advances in the treatment of trauma, spinal injuries, fractures and burns, and of course had brought about notable developments in plastic surgery. The introduction of penicillin, streptomycin, PAS and INAH continued to modify the work of the hospitals and the demand for beds for chest diseases and tuberculosis fell. Soon cortico-steroids and anti-coagulants were introduced. Measles, which ...

By comparison, vesicular breathing (the sound you should hear over the lungs) has a rustling quality which builds up from the onset of inspiration to expiration, where it tails off such that it is not heard in the latter half of expiration. The important difference is that with vesicular breath sounds there is no gap between inspiration and expiration, Ive attempted to explain this below.. I think the concepts of bronchial and vesicular breathing are quite difficult to grasp, but I found it so much easier when I considered this alongside Mr Rs diagnoses, so I will begin with these.. Mr R has suffered from pulmonary oedema (secondary to his left heart failure, which is secondary to his pernicious anaemia) in the past, and I suspect that he was suffering from it when I examined him. The cyanosis I observed, and crepitations I heard on auscultation are consistent with this.. Furthermore, Mr R has been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis (working as a coal miner and smoking 26 pack years are both ...
Fifty years ago childhood diseasesâ€diphtheria, scarlet fever, measles and whooping cough †were exacting terrible tolls. The doctors were nearly powerless. They had to let the diseases run their courses, keeping the patients as comfortable as possible. If children escaped these dread diseases, there was practically everything else in the book ready to ambush fhem before they grew up. The average age of adults dying in 1902 was only 30. Today this has been advanced to nearly 70!. Tuberculosis, malaria, pneumonia, syphilis, typhoid fever, typhus fever, diabetes, pernicious anemia, meningitis and cancer yearly claimed millions of victims even in civilized countries. Methods of antisepsis were not practiced as they are today; many patients died from infections contracted at the operating table; many died from shock.. Blood transfusion was almost unknown until 1912 and it was much later before it was generally practiced. Of course, such refinements as the matching of blood were little ...
