Angioedema: Swelling involving the deep DERMIS, subcutaneous, or submucosal tissues, representing localized EDEMA. Angioedema often occurs in the face, lips, tongue, and larynx.Angioedemas, Hereditary: Inherited disorders that are characterized by subcutaneous and submucosal EDEMA in the upper RESPIRATORY TRACT and GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT.Hereditary Angioedema Types I and II: Forms of hereditary angioedema that occur due to mutations in the gene for COMPLEMENT C1 INHIBITOR PROTEIN. Type I hereditary angioedema is associated with reduced serum levels of complement C1 inhibitor protein. Type II hereditary angioedema is associated with the production of a non-functional complement C1 inhibitor protein.Complement C1 Inhibitor Protein: An endogenous 105-kDa plasma glycoprotein produced primarily by the LIVER and MONOCYTES. It inhibits a broad spectrum of proteases, including the COMPLEMENT C1R and the COMPLEMENT C1S proteases of the CLASSICAL COMPLEMENT PATHWAY, and the MANNOSE-BINDING PROTEIN-ASSOCIATED SERINE PROTEASES. C1-INH-deficient individuals suffer from HEREDITARY ANGIOEDEMA TYPES I AND II.Complement C1 Inactivator Proteins: Serum proteins that inhibit, antagonize, or inactivate COMPLEMENT C1 or its subunits.Urticaria: A vascular reaction of the skin characterized by erythema and wheal formation due to localized increase of vascular permeability. The causative mechanism may be allergy, infection, or stress.Hereditary Angioedema Type III: A form of hereditary angioedema that occurs in women and is precipitated or worsened by high ESTROGEN levels. It is associated with mutations in the gene for FACTOR XII that result in its increased activity.Danazol: A synthetic steroid with antigonadotropic and anti-estrogenic activities that acts as an anterior pituitary suppressant by inhibiting the pituitary output of gonadotropins. It possesses some androgenic properties. Danazol has been used in the treatment of endometriosis and some benign breast disorders.Stanozolol: A synthetic steroid that has anabolic and androgenic properties. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1194)Drug Hypersensitivity: Immunologically mediated adverse reactions to medicinal substances used legally or illegally.Complement Inactivating Agents: Compounds that negatively regulate the cascade process of COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION. Uncontrolled complement activation and resulting cell lysis is potentially dangerous for the host.Tongue DiseasesSkin Tests: Epicutaneous or intradermal application of a sensitizer for demonstration of either delayed or immediate hypersensitivity. Used in diagnosis of hypersensitivity or as a test for cellular immunity.Anaphylaxis: An acute hypersensitivity reaction due to exposure to a previously encountered ANTIGEN. The reaction may include rapidly progressing URTICARIA, respiratory distress, vascular collapse, systemic SHOCK, and death.Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors: A class of drugs whose main indications are the treatment of hypertension and heart failure. They exert their hemodynamic effect mainly by inhibiting the renin-angiotensin system. They also modulate sympathetic nervous system activity and increase prostaglandin synthesis. They cause mainly vasodilation and mild natriuresis without affecting heart rate and contractility.Bradykinin: A nonapeptide messenger that is enzymatically produced from KALLIDIN in the blood where it is a potent but short-lived agent of arteriolar dilation and increased capillary permeability. Bradykinin is also released from MAST CELLS during asthma attacks, from gut walls as a gastrointestinal vasodilator, from damaged tissues as a pain signal, and may be a neurotransmitter.Complement C4: A glycoprotein that is important in the activation of CLASSICAL COMPLEMENT PATHWAY. C4 is cleaved by the activated COMPLEMENT C1S into COMPLEMENT C4A and COMPLEMENT C4B.Ant Venoms: Venoms from the superfamily Formicoidea, Ants. They may contain protein factors and toxins, histamine, enzymes, and alkaloids and are often allergenic or immunogenic.Stomatognathic Diseases: General or unspecified diseases of the stomatognathic system, comprising the mouth, teeth, jaws, and pharynx.Factor XII: 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.Encyclopedias as Topic: Works containing information articles on subjects in every field of knowledge, usually arranged in alphabetical order, or a similar work limited to a special field or subject. (From The ALA Glossary of Library and Information Science, 1983)Breath Holding: An involuntary or voluntary pause in breathing, sometimes accompanied by loss of consciousness.Cetirizine: A potent second-generation histamine H1 antagonist that is effective in the treatment of allergic rhinitis, chronic urticaria, and pollen-induced asthma. Unlike many traditional antihistamines, it does not cause drowsiness or anticholinergic side effects.Histamine H1 Antagonists, Non-Sedating: 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.Hoarseness: An unnaturally deep or rough quality of voice.Laryngeal Edema: Abnormal accumulation of fluid in tissues of any part of the LARYNX, commonly associated with laryngeal injuries and allergic reactions.Inheritance Patterns: The different ways GENES and their ALLELES interact during the transmission of genetic traits that effect the outcome of GENE EXPRESSION.Complement Activating Enzymes: Enzymes that activate one or more COMPLEMENT PROTEINS in the complement system leading to the formation of the COMPLEMENT MEMBRANE ATTACK COMPLEX, an important response in host defense. They are enzymes in the various COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION pathways.Allergens: Antigen-type substances that produce immediate hypersensitivity (HYPERSENSITIVITY, IMMEDIATE).Skin DiseasesCoriandrum: A plant genus of the family APIACEAE. The leaves are the source of cilantro and the seeds are the source of coriander, both of which are used in SPICES.Treatment Outcome: Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.Blood Pressure: PRESSURE of the BLOOD on the ARTERIES and other BLOOD VESSELS.Antineoplastic Agents: Substances that inhibit or prevent the proliferation of NEOPLASMS.Drug Therapy, Combination: Therapy with two or more separate preparations given for a combined effect.Diphenhydramine: A histamine H1 antagonist used as an antiemetic, antitussive, for dermatoses and pruritus, for hypersensitivity reactions, as a hypnotic, an antiparkinson, and as an ingredient in common cold preparations. It has some undesired antimuscarinic and sedative effects.Chlorpheniramine: A histamine H1 antagonist used in allergic reactions, hay fever, rhinitis, urticaria, and asthma. It has also been used in veterinary applications. One of the most widely used of the classical antihistaminics, it generally causes less drowsiness and sedation than PROMETHAZINE.Antihypertensive Agents: Drugs used in the treatment of acute or chronic vascular HYPERTENSION regardless of pharmacological mechanism. Among the antihypertensive agents are DIURETICS; (especially DIURETICS, THIAZIDE); ADRENERGIC BETA-ANTAGONISTS; ADRENERGIC ALPHA-ANTAGONISTS; ANGIOTENSIN-CONVERTING ENZYME INHIBITORS; CALCIUM CHANNEL BLOCKERS; GANGLIONIC BLOCKERS; and VASODILATOR AGENTS.Paroxetine: A serotonin uptake inhibitor that is effective in the treatment of depression.Serotonin Uptake Inhibitors: Compounds that specifically inhibit the reuptake of serotonin in the brain.Amitriptyline: Tricyclic antidepressant with anticholinergic and sedative properties. It appears to prevent the re-uptake of norepinephrine and serotonin at nerve terminals, thus potentiating the action of these neurotransmitters. Amitriptyline also appears to antagonize cholinergic and alpha-1 adrenergic responses to bioactive amines.Antidepressive Agents: Mood-stimulating drugs used primarily in the treatment of affective disorders and related conditions. Several MONOAMINE OXIDASE INHIBITORS are useful as antidepressants apparently as a long-term consequence of their modulation of catecholamine levels. The tricyclic compounds useful as antidepressive agents (ANTIDEPRESSIVE AGENTS, TRICYCLIC) also appear to act through brain catecholamine systems. A third group (ANTIDEPRESSIVE AGENTS, SECOND-GENERATION) is a diverse group of drugs including some that act specifically on serotonergic systems.North AmericaFood Hypersensitivity: Gastrointestinal disturbances, skin eruptions, or shock due to allergic reactions to allergens in food.Allergy and Immunology: A medical specialty concerned with the hypersensitivity of the individual to foreign substances and protection from the resultant infection or disorder.BooksReceptors, Bradykinin: Cell surface receptors that bind BRADYKININ and related KININS with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behavior of cells. The identified receptor types (B-1 and B-2, or BK-1 and BK-2) recognize endogenous KALLIDIN; t-kinins; and certain bradykinin fragments as well as bradykinin itself.Dipeptidyl Peptidase 4: A serine protease that catalyses the release of an N-terminal dipeptide. Several biologically-active peptides have been identified as dipeptidyl peptidase 4 substrates including INCRETINS; NEUROPEPTIDES; and CHEMOKINES. The protein is also found bound to ADENOSINE DEAMINASE on the T-CELL surface and is believed to play a role in T-cell activation.Receptor, Bradykinin B2: A constitutively expressed subtype of bradykinin receptor that may play a role in the acute phase of the inflammatory and pain response. It has high specificity for intact forms of BRADYKININ and KALLIDIN. The receptor is coupled to G-PROTEIN, GQ-G11 ALPHA FAMILY and G-PROTEIN, GI-GO ALPHA FAMILY signaling proteins.Injections, Subcutaneous: Forceful administration under the skin of liquid medication, nutrient, or other fluid through a hollow needle piercing the skin.Paracentesis: A procedure in which fluid is withdrawn from a body cavity or organ via a trocar and cannula, needle, or other hollow instrument.

Familial anglo-oedema--a particularly severe form. (1/263)

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 ...
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. This is a non-allergenic type of angioedema and occurs within days or weeks (sometimes longer) after starting a certain type of medication. Urticaria is not present.. Idiopathic Angioedema.

PY - 2013/5. Y1 - 2013/5. N2 - Angioedema is a recurrent, non-pitting, non-pruritic, transitory swelling due to transient increase of endothelial permeability in the capillaries of the deep cutaneous and mucosal layers. Angioedema is generally categorized based on etiology, and characteristic lab findings are associated with each category. Cases of acquired angioedema associated with myeloproliferative disorders have been described in the literature, but these have been associated with a characteristic low C1q, a defining laboratory finding in acquired angioedema. Here we present a case of 68-year-old female with acquired angioedema that was not associated with low C1q, but was found to have Waldenström disease. 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 is swelling in the deep layers of the skin, often seen with urticaria (hives). Angioedema most often occurs in soft tissues such as the eyelids, mouth or genitals.. Angioedema is called "acute" if the condition lasts only a short time (minutes to days). This is commonly caused by an allergic reaction to medications or foods.. Chronic recurrent angioedema is when the condition returns over a long period of time. It most often does not have an identifiable cause..

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 ...
Results Orolingual angio-oedema was observed in 42 patients (7.9%; 95% CI 5.5% to 10.6%), ranging from 5 to 189 min after initiation of tPA (median 65 min). 12% of the angio-oedema cases were severe (1% of all patients treated with tPA), requiring urgent advanced airway management. 172 patients (33%) were taking ACE-I. In multifactorial analyses, only prior ACE-I treatment remained a significant independent predictor of angio-oedema (odds ratio (OR) 2.3; 95% CI 1.1 to 4.7).. ...

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 ...
Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a disease characterized by recurrent episodes of angioedema,withouturticaria or pruritus, which most often affect the skin or mucosal tissues of the upper respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts. Although the swelling i
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. Clinical findings, a positive family history (the patients mother died of suffocation from laryngeal edema at the age of 32), and the results of complement testing (C4: 0.02 g/L [normal 0.15 to 0.55 g/L]; C1-esterase ...
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 ...

From the Department of Emergency Medicine King-Drew/UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles, California Abstract Two cases of hereditary angioedema and one of acquired angioedema are reported because of their unusual emergency department presentations. Case one is a 27-year-old man of Italian descent who visited the ED because of severe abdominal pain. He subsequently underwent an unnecessary appendectomy. Case two is a 56-year-old Caucasian man who presented to the ED because of shortness of breath, and, subsequently, he developed severe airway obstruction and was intubated. Case three is a 68-year-old black women with a history of chronic lymphocytic leukemia in remission. She was brought into the ED because of severe shortness of breath and had an emergent cricothyrotomy was performed in the ED because of upper airway obstruction and an inability to be intubated.

The skin of the face, normally around the mouth, and the mucosa of the mouth and/or throat, as well as the tongue, swell over the period of minutes to hours. The swelling can also occur elsewhere, typically in the hands. The swelling can be itchy or painful. There may also be slightly decreased sensation in the affected areas due to compression of the nerves. Urticaria (hives) may develop simultaneously. In severe cases, stridor of the airway occurs, with gasping or wheezy inspiratory breath sounds and decreasing oxygen levels. Tracheal intubation is required in these situations to prevent respiratory arrest and risk of death. Sometimes, the cause is recent exposure to an allergen (e.g. peanuts), but more often it is either idiopathic (unknown) or only weakly correlated to allergen exposure. In hereditary angioedema, often no direct cause is identifiable, although mild trauma, including dental work and other stimuli, can cause attacks.[4] There is usually no associated itch or urticaria, as it ...
The reported incidence of allergic reactions to all penicillins ranges from 0.7 to 10 percent in different studies (see Warnings). Sensitization is usually the result of previous treatment with a penicillin, but some individuals have had immediate reactions when first treated. In such cases, it is postulated that prior exposure to penicillin may have occurred via trace amounts present in milk or vaccines.. Two types of allergic reactions to penicillin are noted clinically - immediate and delayed.. Immediate reactions usually occur within 20 minutes of administration and range in severity from urticaria and pruritus to angioneurotic edema, laryngospasm, bronchospasm, hypotension, vascular collapse and death (see Warnings). Such immediate anaphylactic reactions are very rare and usually occur after parenteral therapy, but a few cases of anaphylaxis have been reported following oral therapy. Another type of immediate reaction, an accelerated reaction, may occur between 20 minutes and 48 hours after ...
In conjunction with CYANOKIT, treatment of cyanide poisoning must include immediate attention to airway patency, adequacy of oxygenation and hydration, cardiovascular support, and management of seizures. Consideration should be given to decontamination measures based on the route of exposure. Use caution in the management of patients with known anaphylactic reactions to hydroxocobalamin or cyanocobalamin. Consider alternative therapies, if available.. Allergic reactions may include: anaphylaxis, chest tightness, edema, urticaria, pruritus, dyspnea, and rash. Allergic reactions including angioneurotic edema have also been reported in postmarketing experience.. Cases of acute renal failure with acute tubular necrosis, renal impairment, and urine calcium oxalate crystals have been reported. In some situations, hemodialysis was required to achieve recovery.

Allergic reaction in dogs is often caused by vaccines. Insect stings could also cause an allergic reaction. Some dog food contains ingredients and preservatives that would cause food allergies. The dog may inhale pollen, dander, molds and dust. Likewise the dog may be hypersensitive to animal wastes, mites and even to sunlight.. Urticaria and angioedema are moderate allergic reactions that is non-life threatening. Both allergic reactions often resolve by themselves. Urticaria is marked by extremely itchy hives or wheals. Oftentimes the hair would stand up over these wheals. Angioedema is the swelling of the face that is a result of severe itching. The muzzle, the lips and the eyes would be swollen. Dogs suffering from severe angioedema are unable to open their eyes. Dogs would show symptoms of urticaria and angioedema about 20 minutes after being exposed to substances they are allergic to.. Anaphylaxis is a sudden and severe allergic reaction that should be considered as an emergency situation ...

A multicentre study to investigate pharmacokinetics, clinical efficacy and safety of nanofiltered Cetor® (called C1-esteraseremmer-N during the development phase) for the treatment of hereditary angioedema (HAE) will be performed. This study KB2003.01 consists of three parts, part A pharmacokinetics (phase II), part B treatment of attacks of angioedema (phase III) and part C prophylactic use of C1 inhibitor (phase III). Part B + C will provide data on the efficacy of C1-esteraseremmer-N.. The changes in the manufacturing process of C1-esteraseremmer-N, compared to Cetor® (the currently marketed C1-inhibitor product), nanofiltration and omission of hepatitis B immunoglobulin, most likely will not affect tolerability. The nanofiltration will provide more safety regarding viruses.. In part A, the pharmacokinetics of C1-esteraseremmer-N in patients with hereditary angioedema will be compared with the current registered product, Cetor®, in a randomised, blinded cross-over design. This study has to ...
Acquired angioedema due to C1 inhibitor deficiency (C1INH-AAE) is a rare and potentially fatal syndrome of bradykinin-mediated angioedema characterized by episodes of angioedema without urticaria. It typically manifests with nonpitting edema of the skin and edema in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract mucosa or upper airway. Edema of the upper airway and tongue may lead to life-threatening asphyxiation. C1INH-AAE is typically under-diagnosed because of its rarity and its propensity to mimic more common abdominal conditions and allergic reactions. In this article, we present the case of a 62-year-old male with a history of recently diagnosed chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) who presented to our hospital with recurrent abdominal pain, initially suspected to have
