A class of non-sedating drugs that bind to but do not activate histamine receptors (DRUG INVERSE AGONISM), thereby blocking the actions of histamine or histamine agonists. These antihistamines represent a heterogenous group of compounds with differing chemical structures, adverse effects, distribution, and metabolism. Compared to the early (first generation) antihistamines, these non-sedating antihistamines have greater receptor specificity, lower penetration of BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER, and are less likely to cause drowsiness or psychomotor impairment.
An unnaturally deep or rough quality of voice.
Stable blood coagulation factor activated by contact with the subendothelial surface of an injured vessel. Along with prekallikrein, it serves as the contact factor that initiates the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. Kallikrein activates factor XII to XIIa. Deficiency of factor XII, also called the Hageman trait, leads to increased incidence of thromboembolic disease. Mutations in the gene for factor XII that appear to increase factor XII amidolytic activity are associated with HEREDITARY ANGIOEDEMA TYPE III.

Possible mechanisms of the first step of the classical complement activation pathway: binding and activation of C1. (2/263)

Different immunoglobulin preparations of human monoclonal IgM, normal human and rat IgG, as well as purified rabbit antibodies were treated by various methods, fragmentation, aggregation and complexing with antigen. The ability of the treated and untreated preparations to fix isolated human C1, to activate the classical complement pathway (to consume C4 in normal human serum) were compared. It was found that the different methods affected the conformation of the immunoglobulin molecules in different ways and induced changes to a greater or lesser extent in the two capacities of the preparations tested. In the case of the monoclonal IgM preparation a strong C1-fixation was observed without measurable complement activation. Other preparations, interfacially aggregated human IgG, BSA-anti-BSA and OA-anti-OA immune complexes had a very weak C1-fixing but a marked complement activating capacity. Some preparations, e.g. heat-aggregated IgG, both fixed and activated C1 effectively, aggregates with a complement-activating capacity without C1-fixing effect were separated by gel-filtration. It was demonstrated further, that at a given time only a part of the activated C1 molecules could be found fixed to the immunoglobulins, the other part was released into the fluid phase after activation. On the basis of the results of this and previous studies a hypothesis is proposed suggesting three possible results of the interaction between C1 and the different preparations: (1) firm fixation and activation; (2) binding not followed by activation and (3) a transient binding leading to activation. The possible application of this hypothesis for the interpretation of the results of the different methods for detecting immune complexes is discussed.  (+info)

Angioedema due to ACE inhibitors: increased risk in patients of African origin. (3/263)

AIMS: To determine patterns in presentation, risk factors, management and outcome of patients with ACE inhibitor associated angioedema in one British teaching hospital. METHODS: Cases of ACE inhibitor associated angioedema in patients presenting to the City Hospital, Birmingham between 1993 and 1999 were collected and entered prospectively onto a computerised register. RESULTS: A total of 20 cases (mean age 60 years, range 42-82 years) of ACE inhibitor associated angioedema were reported (11 female and 9 male) with 65% (n=13) of patients being black/Afro-Caribbean. In 70% of cases (n=14), angioedema occurred within 4 weeks of starting therapy, although three patients presented following long-term treatment (24-48 months). ACE inhibitors were continued in 50% (n=10) patients, despite at least one documented episode of angioedema. Admission to hospital was necessary in 40% (n=8) patients, with three of these admitted to the intensive care unit, and one of these died as a result of severe laryngeal obstruction. CONCLUSIONS: ACE inhibitor related angioedema is a serious and potentially fatal complication which is relatively rare in the general population, but is more common amongst black/Afro-Caribbean patients. ACE inhibitors are frequently continued following an episode of angioedema and it is important that these episodes are minimised by prompt cessation of the drug, careful patient counselling and heightened awareness in all clinicians who prescribe this common group of drugs.  (+info)

Epidemiology of drug exposure and adverse drug reactions in two swiss departments of internal medicine. (4/263)

AIMS: To explore drug exposure, frequency of adverse drug reactions (ADRs), types of ADRs, predisposing risk factors and ADR-related excess hospital stay in medical inpatients. METHODS: Structured data regarding patient characteristics, 'events' (symptoms, laboratory results), diagnoses (ICD10) and drug therapy were collected using a computer-supported data entry system and an interface for data retrieval from electronic patient records. ADR data were collected by 'event monitoring' to minimize possible bias by the drug monitor. The causality of each event was assessed in relation to disease(s) and drug therapy. RESULTS: The analysis included 4331 (100%) hospitalizations. The median observation period was 8 days. The median number of different drugs administered per patient and day was 6 and varied between 4 (Q1 ) and 9 (Q3 ) different drugs in 50% of all hospital days. In 41% of all hospitalizations at least one disease-unrelated event could be possibly attributed to drug therapy. Clinically relevant ADRs occurred in 11% of all hospitalizations. In 3.3% of all hospitalizations ADRs were the cause of hospital admission. The incidence of possibly ADR-related deaths was 1.4. Factors predisposing for clinically relevant ADRs were female gender and polypharmacy. ADR-related excess hospital stay accounted for 8. 6% of hospital days. CONCLUSIONS: These data demonstrate the feasibility of the developed 'event monitoring' system for quantitative analysis of ADRs in medical inpatients. With increasing numbers of recorded patients the pharmacoepidemiological database provides a valuable tool to study specific questions regarding drug efficacy and safety in hospitalized patients.  (+info)

Anaphylactoid reactions and angioedema during alteplase treatment of acute ischemic stroke. (5/263)

Among 105 patients given recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA, alteplase) intravenously for acute stroke, 2 (1.9%) had lingual angioedema, which progressed to a fatal anaphylactoid reaction in 1. The authors review the 2 cases and possible mechanisms responsible. They warn that patients who are taking an angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitor may be at increased risk for angioedema with concomitant alteplase therapy.  (+info)

Acquired angioedema with lymphoproliferative disorder: association of C1 inhibitor deficiency with cellular abnormality. (6/263)

A patient with a lymphoproliferative disorder, angioedema, and an acquired deficiency of the inhibitor of the activated first component of complement was studied. The patient's complement profile revealed depletion of the first component of complement, which has not been seen in angioedema of the hereditary type. There was no evidence for C1-depleting activity in the patient's plasma. The majority of the patient's peripheral blood mononuclear cells resembled B cells in their memebrane receptor properties and in that they carried easily detectable immunoglobulin, predominantly IgM. However, these cells were unusual in that they phagocytosed both latex particles and C3-coated erythrocytes. Morphological study of the cells infiltrating the patient's lung revealed immature, atypical, and plasmacytoid lymphocytes and immunoblasts. Both the patient's peripheral blood mononuclear cells and a suspension of cells from the pulmonary infiltrate were capable of depleting the first component of complement and its inhibitor from homologous plasma. Normal ABO-compatible cells did not possess this property. The data suggested that the patient's abnormal lymphoid cells may have interacted with the complement system to produce a biochemical defect and a clinical syndrome closely resembling angioedema of the hereditary type.  (+info)

Laparoscopic splenectomy in a patient with acquired angioneurotic edema. (7/263)

BACKGROUND: We report the case of a 77-year-old female with acquired angioneurotic edema, C1 esterase inhibitor level = 4mg/dL, who was scheduled to undergo laparoscopic splenectomy. METHODS: In the operating room, we administered on call 500 units (UI) of C1 esterase inhibitor concentrate intravenously. Intraoperative hemodynamic instability and generalized blood oozing improved following the administration of aprotinin 250000 UI intravenous (IV) drip. CONCLUSION: We recommend the administration of an antifibrinolytic agent in addition to C1 esterase inhibitor concentrate in patients with acquired angioneurotic edema.  (+info)

The pathogenesis of arthritis associated with acute hepatitis-B surface antigen-positive hepatitis. Complement activation and characterization of circulating immune complexes. (8/263)

Circulating immune complexes were identified in cryoproteins isolated from serial samples of serum from six patients with acute viral hepatitis with and without arthritic symptoms. Cryoprecipitates were analyzed for the presence of hepatitis-B surface antigen (HBsAg) and hepatitis-B surface antibody (anti-HBs) by hemagglutination inhibition and hemagglutination. Complement components were detected by counter electrophoresis, and immunoglobulins were detected by gel diffusion. HBsAg, IgG, and IgM were identified in cryoprecipitates from all hepatitis patients, but were higher in concentration in patients with arthritis. Only cryoprecipitates from hepatitis patients with arthritis contained IgA and complement components C3, C4, and C5 as well as IgG and IgM, which disappear with resolution of the arthritis. The subtypes of IgG in these cryoprecipitates were predominantly the complement-fixing IgG1 and IgG3, HBsAg and anti-HBs were concentrated several-fold in the cryoprecipitates when compared to the serum concentration. Sequential studies in two patients demonstrated that the initial appearance of anti-HBs in the cryoprotein complex was associated with the detection in the complex of IgM suggesting a primary immune response to HBsAg. The C3 activator fragment (C3A) of the properdin complex was found in fresh serum obtained from three hepatitis patients with arthritis and not in uncomplicated hepatitis. The cryoprecipitable immune complexes from patients with arthritis converted C3PA in fresh normal sera to C3A in vitro whereas cryoprotein isolated from patients with uncomplicated hepatitis had no such effect. Thus, the transient appearance of circulating complement-fixing immune complexes in patients with the arthritis of acute hepatitis is associated with activation of both classical and alternate complement pathways and suggests that they play an important role in the pathogenesis of these serum sickness-like extrahepatic symptoms.  (+info)

[INTRODUCTION - Changes in the bodys hormonal equilibrium may alter the frequency of angioedema attacks in patients with hereditary angioneurotic edema. We assessed the relations between the angioedema attacks and puberty, menstruation, anticoncipient pill taking, pregnancy, delivery and menopausa. We also studied the possible impact of an embryo with hereditary angioneurotic edema on the frequency of attacks during pregnancy. PATIENTS, METHODS AND RESULTS - 53 female patients were included in the study. Data was surveyed by a questionnaire and detailed gynecological examination. We pointed out that the frequency of the attacks increased in 34% of the patients during puberty, in 58% of the patients at the time of menstruation and in 63% of the contraceptive pill users. In 36% of the women the frequency decreased in the postmenopausal state. In case the pregnancy affected the disease, the embryo with hereditary angioneurotic edema increased the number of attacks during pregnancy. CONCLUSION - Our

SUMMARY. Angioneurotic edema and symptoms of intestinal obstruction developed in a woman when she was 58 years old. Surgical exploration during an attack of abdominal pain showed a segment of jejunum that was edematous and thickened and had a narrowed lumen. Analysis of the patients serum showed a reduction in C′4 activity and a marked deficiency of C′1 esterase inhibitor, the biochemical hallmarks of hereditary angioneurotic edema. There was no family history of angioneurotic edema. The patient later died from an attack of laryngeal edema. This case illustrates the need for analysis of serum for this deficiency in elderly patients with angioneurotic edema and abdominal pain even though the family history is negative. ...

Patients with hereditary angioneurotic edema (HANE) have serum levels of functionally active inhibitor of the first component of complement (C1 INH) between 5 and 30% of normal, instead of the 50% expected from the single normal allele. Increases in rates of catabolism have been documented in patients with HANE and certainly account for some of decrease in C1 INH level. A possible role for a decrease in synthesis of C1 INH in producing serum levels of C1 INH below the expected 50% of normal has not been well studied. We studied the synthesis of C1 INH in skin fibroblast lines, which produce easily detectable amounts of C1 INH. In type I HANE cells, C1 INH synthesis was 19.6 +/- 4.0% (mean +/- SD) of normal, much less than the 50% predicted. In type II HANE cells, the total amount of C1 INH synthesis (functional and dysfunctional) was 98.9 +/- 17% of normal; the functional protein comprised 43% of the total. Thus, type II HANE cells synthesized functional C1 INH at a much greater rate than for ...
People who take ACE inhibitors may develop angioedema, a condition that causes itchy and painful swelling beneath the skin around the eyes, lips, tongue, throat, hands, or feet. In severe cases, the throat may swell, obstructing the airway and leading to breathing difficulty. ACE inhibitors prevent the breakdown of a natural chemical in the body called bradykinin. Increased levels of bradykinin, which can cause swelling, may contribute to the development of angioedema. Blocking bradykinin receptor cells prevents bradykinin from initiating swelling and may lead to a possible decrease in angioedema symptoms. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of HOE-140, a bradykinin receptor blocker, at reducing symptoms in people with ACE inhibitor-associated angioedema.. This study will enroll people admitted to the emergency room or hospital who have a severe case of ACE inhibitor-associated angioedema. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive an injection of either HOE-140 or ...

Angioedema can be classified into the following types: Allergic angioedema, bradykinin mediated angioedema, drug induced angioedema, hereditary angioedema, and acquired angioedema. Angioedema should be differentiated from: Acute urticaria, anaphylaxis, food Allergy, and drug allergy. Abdominal attacks have also been known to cause a significant increase in the patients white blood cell count, usually in the vicinity of 13-30,000. As the symptoms begin to diminish, the white count slowly begins to decrease, returning to normal when the attack subsides. Possible complications include: Anaphylactic reaction and life-threatening airway blockage (if swelling occurs in the throat). Angioedema that does not affect the breathing may be uncomfortable, but is usually harmless and goes away in a few days. Predicting where and when the next episode of edema will occur is impossible. Most patients have an average of one episode per month, but there are also patients who have weekly episodes or only one or ...
Angioedema is a recurrent, non-pitting, non-pruritic, self-limiting swelling due to transient increase of endothelial permeability in the capillaries of the deep cutaneous and mucosal layers. Two main groups of angioedema should be distinguished based on the response to treatment: those responding to antihistamine and those that do not. Among the last ones, angioedema due to inherited (hereditary angioedema) and acquired (acquired angioedema) C1 inhibitor deficiency are the best defined, and are known to be mediated by bradykinin. The clinical picture is characterized by cutaneous, abdominal, and laryngeal symptoms that are highly disabling, and can be lethal when they affect the larynx, or if they are not promptly and adequately treated. Important advances in diagnosis and treatment of C1 inhibitor deficiency have been made in recent years, and today, we can rely on different therapeutic options to prevent symptoms or to treat those already present. Because of these advances, in patients ...
This is an immune reaction to an allergen. Symptoms may appear within the first 2 hours after exposure to the allergen and usually settle within 3 days. Urticaria is usually present but not always.. Acquired Angioedema. This type of angioedema is associated with certain types of autoimmune diseases, infections, malignant tumors and diseases causing increased lymphocyte populations. It tends to occur later in life, usually after the fourth decade, and may persist as long as the underlying disease is present (chronic in nature). Urticaria may be present.. Hereditary Angioedema. This is inherited type of angioedema and the symptoms usually present before the age of 20 years. It typically occurs in episodes, which can be quite severe and affect multiple systems simultaneously.. Drug Induced Angioedema.

Hereditary angio-oedema is characterised by recurrent swellings in any part of the body and also by recurrent attacks of severe abdominal pain. The disease is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner but up to 25% of cases can occur as a spontaneous mutation. Attacks of swelling can be precipitated by trauma, certain drugs, and emotional stress. Treatment usually involves a combination of prophylaxis, using androgens or antifibrolytic drugs, and replacement with C1 esterase inhibitor concentrate for acute attacks and before surgery or other traumatic procedures.

Her angioedema responded dramatically to combination therapy consisting of bortezomib, ...
Sir,We endorse the comments regarding angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor-associated angioedema made in the recent article by Murray and Crowther.1-1However, we would also highlight the important racial differences in susceptibility to ACE-inhibitor-induced angioedema, with a markedly increased risk in Afro-Caribbean patients.1-2 A four-fold increase in risk has been reported in African-American patients, when compared with other ethnic groups, and there may also be race-related differences in the severity of ACE-inhibitor-associated angioedema.1-2 Since 1993 we have maintained a prospective hospital-based register of patients with ACE-inhibitor-associated angioedema and a total of 16 patients (10 Afro-Caribbean, five Caucasian, and one Asian) have now been reported. Three of these patients (all Afro-Caribbean) developed severe angioedema, requiring admission to the intensive care unit, and one of them subsequently died. Although angioedema normally occurs in the early stages of ...

Angioedema can be divided into hereditary angioedema (HAE) and acquired angioedema. HAE is extremely rare, affecting in the range of 1:30,000 to 1 in 80,000 people.4,5 It develops due to a C1 esterase inhibitor deficiency, which is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern with almost complete penetrance.5 This deficiency results in an abnormal increase in the activation of C1 and subsequent excessive formation of the enzyme kallikrein. The excess kallikrein transforms kininogen into kinins, including bradykinin. Bradykinin, the primary biologic mediator of angioedema,5 is highly vasoactive and produces the characteristic tissue swelling seen in angioedema.4 HAE is commonly precipitated by trauma and emotional stress. Frequently, the trauma is considered to be minor and can be as innocuous as prolonged sitting on a hard surface or clapping of the hands. Dental and surgical trauma are well-recognized precipitators of an acute attack.5 ...
The authors draw conclusions from 22 cases with supposed acquired C1 esterase inhibitor deficiency angioedema but present only partial results of two cases that have no clearly documented diagnosis. Acute angioedema attacks were treated with antihistamines, corticosteroids, or epinephrine. Symptom resolution was attributed to this therapy, but the cause-and-effect relationship was not clearly demonstrated (the attacks could have resolved spontaneously). Moreover, the authors did not document these treatments with published references. They also stated that C1 inhibitor is indicated only for a limited number of patients with the hereditary form of the disease, and they cite only two old and not representative references ...

This is the largest observational study of medication-related angioedema published to date. It provides important information on the risks of this condition across the spectrum of patients seen in clinics, including many patients who would not have been included in trials because of comorbidities. It is derived from a population of about 2 million VA patients prescribed antihypertensive prescriptions, focusing on a sample of nearly 600 000 patients first initiating this treatment with 833 new angioedema cases identified over a 21-month period. Furthermore, an extensive medical record review of a 14% sample indicated confirmation for over 95% of cases. From these data, we estimate an angioedema incidence in patients newly prescribed ACE of 1.97 per 1000 person years of use with relatively narrow confidence intervals (1.71 to 2.18). We project that about 1 of every 2600 new ACE users experiences angioedema within 30 days and about one of every 1000 experiences it within a year after first use. It ...
TPA is a thrombolytic drug used in the treatment of acute strokes. It hydrolyzes plasminogen to plasmin and results in its fibrinolytic effect. The increase in plasmin may play a role in the development of angioedema by activating the kinin pathway and leading to the formation of the vasodilator bradykinin. Plasmin also activates the complement system and leads to the production of the anaphyloxins C3a, C4a, and C5a, which also cause mast cell degranulation and histamine release.4 Patient assessment should be done every 15 minutes during tPA infusion for signs of clinical deterioration indicating a possible intracranial hemorrhage, or for signs of angioedema. Angioedema is defined as an acute, transient, well-demarcated swelling that involves the deeper layers of the skin. It usually affects the face, genitalia, as well as the upper respiratory airways and the intestinal epithelial lining.5 Angioedema could be due to a hereditary deficiency in C1-esterase or it could occur as an allergic ...

In this report we show for the first time that rtPA (pure laboratory reagent or injectable drug) used in vitro at a therapeutic concentration of 10 μg/mL (Activase rt-PA, Hoffmann-LaRoche Ltd) has the capacity to generate immunoreactive BK when incubated with human plasma. This B2 receptor agonist, in turn, is metabolized to des-Arg9-BK, a potent B1 receptor agonist. A decreased plasma metabolism of des-Arg9-BK characterizes hypertensive patients who presented an ACE inhibitor-related angioedema.14. The metabolic profiles of both kinins, in the presence of rtPA and an ACE inhibitor, are quantitatively similar to those measured during the in vitro activation of the contact system cascade by glass beads, an experimental approach we have applied previously to a healthy reference population and to hypertensive patients who presented an ACE inhibitor-related angioedema.14 We have previously shown in hypertensive angioedema patients that APP activity in the presence of ACE inhibitor plays the major ...

Angioedema occurs in up to 5% of patients on angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) therapy receiving IV rtPA.1 A 58-year-old man taking the combination ACEI amlodipine/benazepril received IV rtPA for clinical left middle cerebral artery territory acute infarction, NIHSS 9. Head CT was unremarkable. He developed orolingual angioedema 5 minutes after rtPA infusion was completed (figure). There was no airway compromise or hemodynamic instability to suggest anaphylactic reaction. Symptoms were treated with dexamethasone and a histamine antagonist. The angioedema resolved completely over the next 48 hours, as did his neurologic deficits.. ...
In allergic angioedema, avoidance of the allergen and use of antihistamines may prevent future attacks. Cetirizine is a commonly prescribed antihistamine for angioedema. Some patients have reported success with the combination of a nightly low dose of cetirizine to moderate the frequency and severity of attacks, followed by a much higher dose when an attack does appear. Severe angioedema cases may require desensitization to the putative allergen, as mortality can occur. Chronic cases require steroid therapy, which generally leads to a good response.
ARBs are known to be associated with angioedema but the risk is quite low. The mechanism is unknown and there is no plausible mechanism in common with ACEIs. It cannot be established conclusively from empirical evidence that there is any true cross sensitivity. However, given the speculation that patients with ACEI induced angioedema may have an allergic diathesis predisposing them to angioedema from unrelated mechanisms the authors of the review advise caution, as do various other experts and guidelines. These cautions include patient education as to possible risk and shared decision making. For appropriate indications the benefits of ARBs are substantial in patients ACEI intolerant and must be weighed against the very small risk. ...

The patient is a 33-year-old female (case provided by Dr Henriette Farkas, Hungary). At the age of 4 years the patient developed extremity edema after minor mechanical trauma that resolved spontaneously within 2 days. Subsequently, once or twice a year the patient experienced edematous episodes of several days duration involving the upper or lower extremities. Edema always resolved spontaneously and its cause could not be identified. Appendectomy was performed at the age of 7 years, and intraoperative findings included free peritoneal fluid and edematous intestines. At 10 years of age, the patient experienced facial edema after a tonsillectomy. Edema was treated with antihistamines and glucocorticoids and resolved slowly over 3 days. This event raised the suspicion of HAE.

Urticaria is a common illness affecting up to 20% of people (one in 5 people) at some point in their lives. Urticaria presents with highly itchy raised skin reactions known as weals (also known as hives) that may be round or ring-shaped, and may join together. They come and go within hours. Weals can also appear as raised lines after scratching. They can appear anywhere on the skin. Individual weals typically disappear of their own accord within 24 hours without a trace but the condition lasts longer. Angio-oedema, swelling deep to the skin, often occurs in urticaria. Angio-oedema usually affects soft areas of skin, such as the eyelids, lips or inside the mouth but may occur anywhere. These swellings often take longer to clear and tend to be painful rather than itchy. Urticaria may present with weals alone, angio-oedema or both together.. If angio-oedema occurs without weals it may be an inherited illness called hereditary angio-oedema. This is a different problem to urticaria. It can be ...

[online]. 2011, vol.79, n.2, pp.157-163. ISSN 1850-3748.. Cough is very frequent in patients receiving angiotensinconverting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs); patients develop dry cough, frequently associated with sore and itchy throat. A causal relationship between ACEI and cough is not always present. Causality is established if cough disappears after the drug is withdrawn and reappears when it is re-administered (dechallenge - rechallenge). This method does not carry any risk and reduces the overdiagnosis of this association; however, it not widely accepted and few experts do not recommend it. On the other hand, some studies have reported that cough might disappear despite continuing treatment. ACEI-induced angioedema is the most severe adverse effect. Typically, it involves the face, lips and tongue. Most ...

Introduction: ST elevation myocardial infarction in concurrence with angioedema, anaphylaxis, hypersensitivity, or platelet activation is an event well published in literature known as Kounis-Syndrome. Classically, these events are linked by the administration of epinephrine either intravenously or intramuscularly for the treatment of the acute immunologic response. Case Report: This particular case is a 78 year old male with history of c1 esterase inhibitor deficiency, angioedema, and hypertension presenting with angioedema. His symptoms started the previous night and were managed in the ED with methylprednisolone, diphenhydramine, and famotidine. The patient was intubated for airway protection and extubated about 24 hours later. About 48 hours after symptom onset, the patient developed acute chest pain and STEMI. He underwent PCI and stent placement after a 99.9% occlusion of the proximal LAD was identified. Discussion: This case is unique because the patient did not receive epinephrine for the

Hereditary angioedema with C1 inhibitor deficiency (C1-INH-HAE) is a rare inherited disease. In most HAE-affected subjects, defined trigger factors precede angioedema attacks. Mechanisms of how trigger factors stimulate the contact activation pathway with bradykinin generation are not well elucidated. In recent studies, hypersensitivity reactions and food were stated as relevant triggers. We investigated HAE affected people for possible hypersensitivity reactions or intolerances and their relation in triggering angioedema attacks. A questionnaire was filled in, recording date of birth, gender, and self-reported angioedema attacks associated with the ingestion of foodstuffs, administration of drugs, hymenoptera stings and hypersensitivity reactions against inhalation allergens. All participants performed a skin prick test against inhalation allergens and food. In patients who stated an association of possible hypersensitivity with angioedema, a serological ImmunoCAP test was also performed. From the 27

AU - Govers-Riemslag, José W P. PY - 2013/8/27. Y1 - 2013/8/27. N2 - Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is predominantly caused by a deficiency in C1 esterase inhibitor (C1INH) (HAE-C1INH). C1INH inhibits activated factor XII (FXIIa), activated factor XI (FXIa), and kallikrein. In HAE-C1INH patients the thrombotic risk is not increased even though activation of the contact system is poorly regulated. Therefore, we hypothesized that contact activation preferentially leads to kallikrein formation and less to activation of the coagulation cascade in HAE-C1INH patients. We measured the levels of C1INH in complex with activated contact factors in plasma samples of HAE-C1INH patients (N=30, 17 during remission and 13 during acute attack) and healthy controls (N=10). We did not detect differences in enzyme-inhibitor ...

Agents for prophylaxis of hereditary angioedema (HAE) have been available in the United States for several decades, but their usefulness is limited by side effects and they cannot be used at all in some patients. No agents have been available in the United States to specifically treat acute attacks. HAE types I and II are associated with low functional levels of C1 inhibitor, and evidence accumulated over decades suggests that intravenous infusion of C1 inhibitor is useful for terminating angioedema attacks and for prophylaxis. C1 inhibitor derived from pooled human plasma has been available for decades in Europe, and 2 preparations have been recently introduced into the United States. Both have been efficacious in carefully controlled double-blind studies. One preparation, Cinryze, was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for prophylaxis of HAE attacks in October 2008, and the second, Berinert, was approved by the FDA for treatment of acute attacks in October 2009. A third preparation,
Although rare, hereditary angioedema (HAE) is associated with episodic attacks of edema formation that can have catastrophic consequences.

BACKGROUND: The plasma-derived, pasteurized C1-inhibitor (C1-INH) concentrate, Berinert has a 4-decade history of use in hereditary angioedema (HAE), with a substantial literature base that demonstrates safety and efficacy. Thromboembolic events have rarely been reported with C1-INH products, typically with off-label use or at supratherapeutic doses. OBJECTIVES: Active surveillance of safety and clinical usage patterns of pasteurized C1-inhibitor concentrate and the more recent pasteurized, nanofiltered C1-INH, with a particular interest in thromboembolic events. METHODS: A registry was initiated in April 2010 at 27 US and 4 EU sites to obtain both prospective and retrospective safety and usage data on subjects who were administered C1-INH (Berinert). RESULTS: As of May 10, 2013, data were available for 135 subjects and 3196 infusions. By subject, 67.4% were using C1-INH as on-demand therapy and 23.0% as both on-demand therapy and prophylactic administration. Approximately half of the infusions ...
Hereditary angioedema (HAE) due to C1 esterase inhibitor (C1-INH) deficiency (HAE-C1-INH) is a rare but medically significant disease that can be associated with considerable morbidity and mortality. Research into the pathogenesis of HAE-C1-INH has expanded greatly in the last six decades and has led to new clinical trials with novel therapeutic agents and treatment strategies. Mechanisms of pharmacotherapy include (a) supplementing C1-INH, the missing serine-protease inhibitor in HAE; (b) inhibiting the activation of the contact system and the uncontrolled release of proteases in the kallikrein-kinin system, by blocking the production/function of its components; (c) inhibiting the fibrinolytic system by blocking the production/function of its components; and (d) inhibiting the function of bradykinin at the endothelial level ...
Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare disease, little known to the medical and dental community, but with a growing rate of hospitalization over the years. HAE is due to a deficit/dysfunction of C1 esterase inhibitor which leads to an increase in vascular permeability and the appearance of edemas widespread in all body areas. The airways are the most affected and laryngeal swelling, which can occur, it is dangerous for the patients life, is also a sensitive spot in our daily practice, therefore, it is also important to be aware of all the signs of this disease. Episodes of HAE have no obvious cause, but it can be triggered by anxiety, invasive procedures and trauma. So this disease is a major problem in oral and maxillofacial surgery, ENT, endoscopy, emergency medicine and anesthesia because even simple procedures can cause laryngeal edema. The recommendations on the management of HAE include long- and short-term prophylaxis and treatment for acute attacks, however, the importance of anxiety control

Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is disorder that results in recurrent attacks of severe swelling. This most commonly affects the arms, legs, face, intestinal tract, and airway. Itchiness does not typically occur. If the intestinal tract is affected abdominal pain and vomiting may occur. Swelling of the airway can result in its obstruction. Attacks, without treatment, typically occur every couple of weeks and last for a few days. There are three main types of HAE. Type I and II are caused by a mutation in the SERPING1 gene that makes the C1 inhibitor protein while type III is often due to a mutation of the factor XII gene. This results in increased amounts of bradykinin which promotes swelling. The condition may be inherited from a persons parents in an autosomal dominant manner or occur as a new mutation. Triggers of an attack may include minor trauma or stress, but often occurs without any obvious preceding event. Diagnosis of type I and II is based upon measuring C4 and C1-inhibitor levels. ...
Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a disease which is associated with random and often unpredictable attacks of painful swelling typically affecting the extremities, bowel mucosa, genitals, face and upper airway. Attacks are associated with significant functional impairment, decreased Health Related Quality of Life, and mortality in the case of laryngeal attacks. Caring for patients with HAE can be challenging due to the complexity of this disease. The care of patients with HAE in Canada is neither optimal nor uniform across the country. It lags behind other countries where there are more organized models for HAE management, and where additional therapeutic options are licensed and available for use. The objective of this guideline is to provide graded recommendations for the management of patients in Canada with HAE. This includes the treatment of attacks, short-term prophylaxis, long-term prophylaxis, and recommendations for self-administration, individualized therapy, quality of life, and comprehensive

MOJ Womens Health 2017, 5(4): 00129 Perioperative prophylaxis with Danazol and C1 inhibitor concentrate (C1-INH) are commonly used to prevent angioedema episodes. Anaesthesia management and perioperative implications have been recently commented by some authors [3]. Airway oedema and hypovolemic shock due to the tissue leak of fluids are especially significant in the perioperative period, challenging even the most experienced anaesthesiologist. We represent a patient who had previously diagnosed HEA who underwent successful elective Novasure endometrial ablation under general anaesthetic. Perioperative management and anaesthetic implications are discussed below in details.
This Phase II/III study consisted of two parts: A controlled phase and An Open label extension(OLE) phase. The controlled phase describes the double blind part of the study and was intended to evaluate the efficacy of icatibant in decreasing the time to onset of symptom relief compared with placebo for the first treated cutaneous and/or abdominal attack in randomised patients. Patients experienced a laryngeal attack were not randomised, but treated with open label icatibant according to the controlled phase procedures and assessments. The outcome of this group was to be reported descriptively. After treatment of the first attack in the controlled phase, the patients were eligible to enter the OLE phase. In the OLE phase, patients who experienced angioedema attacks severe enough to warrant treatment were to be treated with s.c. icatibant as appropriate until the end of the study.The OLE phase became a modified open label extension where all 56 patients who had been randomised and the last ...
Given her fathers premature death, Angelas doctor suspects that she has hereditary angioedema, a genetic disorder that compromises the function of C1 inhibitor protein. Patients with this genetic abnormality may have occasional episodes of swelling in various parts of the body. In Angelas case, the swelling has occurred in the respiratory tract, leading to difficulty breathing. Swelling may also occur in the gastrointestinal tract, causing abdominal cramping, diarrhea, and vomiting, or in the muscles of the face or limbs. This swelling may be nonresponsive to steroid treatment and is often misdiagnosed as an allergy.. Because there are three types of hereditary angioedema, the doctor orders a more specific blood test to look for levels of C1-INH, as well as a functional assay of Angelas C1 inhibitors. The results suggest that Angela has type I hereditary angioedema, which accounts for 80%-85% of all cases. This form of the disorder is caused by a deficiency in C1 esterase inhibitors, the ...
Adrenergic: Reaction to adrenaline / noradrenaline (extremely rare) Related conditions of Urticaria: Angioedema is related to urticaria. In angioedema, the swelling occurs in a lower layer of the dermis than it does in urticaria. This swelling can occur around the mouth, in the throat, in the abdomen, or in other locations. Urticaria and angioedema sometimes occur together in response to an allergen and is a concern in severe cases as angioedema of the throat can be fatal.. Treatment & Management: Urticarias can be very difficult to treat. Most treatment plans for urticaria involve being aware of ones triggers, but this can be difficult since there are several different forms of urticaria and people often exhibit more than one type. Also, since symptoms are often idiopathic there might not be any clear trigger. If ones triggers can be identified then outbreaks can often be managed by limiting ones exposure to these situations.. While the disease is obviously physiological in origin, ...

This guidance for the management of patients with chronic urticaria and angioedema has been prepared by the Standards of Care Committee of the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI). The guideline is based on evidence as well as on expert opinion and is aimed at both adult physicians and paediatricians practising in allergy. The recommendations are evidence graded. During the development of these guidelines, all BSACI members were included in the consultation process using a Web-based system. Their comments and suggestions were carefully considered by the Standards of Care Committee. Where evidence was lacking, a consensus was reached by the experts on the committee. Included in this management guideline are clinical classification, aetiology, diagnosis, investigations, treatment guidance with special sections on children with urticaria and the use of antihistamines in women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Finally, we have made recommendations for potential areas of ...
I first encountered Urticaria (hives) about 12 months ago (age of 70). I went to see my doctor because I was experiencing severe itching on my hands, around my waist, on myneck and legs, at night I often awoke with severe itching and inflammation. In fact my doctor advised keeping a damp flannel in the fridge to cool my attacks. I was given ointment and pills to calm down the attacks. None worked. I tried using anthisan cream and found it gave some relief. I then decided to find out on the Net if other people suffered the same..

The outer surface covering appears to have fluid in it. The conjunctiva becomes swollen and gelatinous in appearance. Often, the eye area swells so much that the eyes become difficult or impossible to close fully.[1] Sometimes, it may also appear as if the eyeball has moved slightly backwards from the white part of the eye due to the fluid filled in the conjunctiva all over the eyes except the iris. The iris is not covered by this fluid and so it appears to be moved slightly inwards.. ...
