Arthus Reaction: A dermal inflammatory reaction produced under conditions of antibody excess, when a second injection of antigen produces intravascular antigen-antibody complexes which bind complement, causing cell clumping, endothelial damage, and vascular necrosis.Receptors, Fc: Molecules found on the surface of some, but not all, B-lymphocytes, T-lymphocytes, and macrophages, which recognize and combine with the Fc (crystallizable) portion of immunoglobulin molecules.Neutrophils: Granular leukocytes having a nucleus with three to five lobes connected by slender threads of chromatin, and cytoplasm containing fine inconspicuous granules and stainable by neutral dyes.Receptors, IgG: Specific molecular sites on the surface of various cells, including B-lymphocytes and macrophages, that combine with IMMUNOGLOBULIN Gs. Three subclasses exist: Fc gamma RI (the CD64 antigen, a low affinity receptor), Fc gamma RII (the CD32 antigen, a high affinity receptor), and Fc gamma RIII (the CD16 antigen, a low affinity receptor).Exudates and Transudates: Exudates are fluids, CELLS, or other cellular substances that are slowly discharged from BLOOD VESSELS usually from inflamed tissues. Transudates are fluids that pass through a membrane or squeeze through tissue or into the EXTRACELLULAR SPACE of TISSUES. Transudates are thin and watery and contain few cells or PROTEINS.Peritonitis: INFLAMMATION of the PERITONEUM lining the ABDOMINAL CAVITY as the result of infectious, autoimmune, or chemical processes. Primary peritonitis is due to infection of the PERITONEAL CAVITY via hematogenous or lymphatic spread and without intra-abdominal source. Secondary peritonitis arises from the ABDOMINAL CAVITY itself through RUPTURE or ABSCESS of intra-abdominal organs.Macrophages, Alveolar: Round, granular, mononuclear phagocytes found in the alveoli of the lungs. They ingest small inhaled particles resulting in degradation and presentation of the antigen to immunocompetent cells.Neutrophil Infiltration: The diffusion or accumulation of neutrophils in tissues or cells in response to a wide variety of substances released at the sites of inflammatory reactions.Keratitis: Inflammation of the cornea.Vasculitis, Leukocytoclastic, Cutaneous: Disorder characterized by a vasculitic syndrome associated with exposure to an antigen such as a drug, infectious agent, or other foreign or endogenous substance. Its pathophysiology includes immune complex deposition and a wide range of skin lesions. Hypersensitivity or allergy is present in some but not all cases.Peroxidase: A hemeprotein from leukocytes. Deficiency of this enzyme leads to a hereditary disorder coupled with disseminated moniliasis. It catalyzes the conversion of a donor and peroxide to an oxidized donor and water. EC 1.11.1.7.Immune Complex Diseases: Group of diseases mediated by the deposition of large soluble complexes of antigen and antibody with resultant damage to tissue. Besides SERUM SICKNESS and the ARTHUS REACTION, evidence supports a pathogenic role for immune complexes in many other IMMUNE SYSTEM DISEASES including GLOMERULONEPHRITIS, systemic lupus erythematosus (LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS, SYSTEMIC) and POLYARTERITIS NODOSA.Immunoglobulin Constant Regions: The domains of the immunoglobulin molecules that are invariable in their amino acid sequence within any class or subclass of immunoglobulin. They confer biological as well as structural functions to immunoglobulins. One each on both the light chains and the heavy chains comprises the C-terminus half of the IMMUNOGLOBULIN FAB FRAGMENT and two or three of them make up the rest of the heavy chains (all of the IMMUNOGLOBULIN FC FRAGMENT)Allergy and Immunology: A medical specialty concerned with the hypersensitivity of the individual to foreign substances and protection from the resultant infection or disorder.Immunoglobulin Heavy Chains: The largest of polypeptide chains comprising immunoglobulins. They contain 450 to 600 amino acid residues per chain, and have molecular weights of 51-72 kDa.Immunoglobulin Isotypes: The classes of immunoglobulins found in any species of animal. In man there are nine classes that migrate in five different groups in electrophoresis; they each consist of two light and two heavy protein chains, and each group has distinguishing structural and functional properties.Immunoglobulin Light Chains: Polypeptide chains, consisting of 211 to 217 amino acid residues and having a molecular weight of approximately 22 kDa. There are two major types of light chains, kappa and lambda. Two Ig light chains and two Ig heavy chains (IMMUNOGLOBULIN HEAVY CHAINS) make one immunoglobulin molecule.Greek World: A historical and cultural entity dispersed across a wide geographical area under the influence of Greek civilization, culture, and science. The Greek Empire extended from the Greek mainland and the Aegean islands from the 16th century B.C., to the Indus Valley in the 4th century under Alexander the Great, and to southern Italy and Sicily. Greek medicine began with Homeric and Aesculapian medicine and continued unbroken to Hippocrates (480-355 B.C.). The classic period of Greek medicine was 460-136 B.C. and the Graeco-Roman period, 156 B.C.-576 A.D. (From A. Castiglioni, A History of Medicine, 2d ed; from F. H. Garrison, An Introduction to the History of Medicine, 4th ed)Immunoglobulin gamma-Chains: Heavy chains of IMMUNOGLOBULIN G having a molecular weight of approximately 51 kDa. They contain about 450 amino acid residues arranged in four domains and an oligosaccharide component covalently bound to the Fc fragment constant region. The gamma heavy chain subclasses (for example, gamma 1, gamma 2a, and gamma 2b) of the IMMUNOGLOBULIN G isotype subclasses (IgG1, IgG2A, and IgG2B) resemble each other more closely than the heavy chains of the other IMMUNOGLOBULIN ISOTYPES.Sweet Syndrome: Condition characterized by large, rapidly extending, erythematous, tender plaques on the upper body usually accompanied by fever and dermal infiltration of neutrophilic leukocytes. It occurs mostly in middle-aged women, is often preceded by an upper respiratory infection, and clinically resembles ERYTHEMA MULTIFORME. Sweet syndrome is associated with LEUKEMIA.Morning Sickness: Symptoms of NAUSEA and VOMITING in pregnant women that usually occur in the morning during the first 2 to 3 months of PREGNANCY. Severe persistent vomiting during pregnancy is called HYPEREMESIS GRAVIDARUM.Physician Assistants: Health professionals who practice medicine as members of a team with their supervising physicians. They deliver a broad range of medical and surgical services to diverse populations in rural and urban settings. Duties may include physical exams, diagnosis and treatment of disease, interpretation of tests, assist in surgery, and prescribe medications. (from http://www.aapa.orglabout-pas accessed 2114/2011)Nurse Practitioners: Nurses who are specially trained to assume an expanded role in providing medical care under the supervision of a physician.Family Practice: A medical specialty concerned with the provision of continuing, comprehensive primary health care for the entire family.Polychondritis, Relapsing: An acquired disease of unknown etiology, chronic course, and tendency to recur. It is characterized by inflammation and degeneration of cartilage and can result in deformities such as floppy ear and saddle nose. Loss of cartilage in the respiratory tract can lead to respiratory obstruction.Physicians: Individuals licensed to practice medicine.Edema: Abnormal fluid accumulation in TISSUES or body cavities. Most cases of edema are present under the SKIN in SUBCUTANEOUS TISSUE.Cobra Venoms: Venoms from snakes of the genus Naja (family Elapidae). They contain many specific proteins that have cytotoxic, hemolytic, neurotoxic, and other properties. Like other elapid venoms, they are rich in enzymes. They include cobramines and cobralysins.Antigen-Antibody Complex: The complex formed by the binding of antigen and antibody molecules. The deposition of large antigen-antibody complexes leading to tissue damage causes IMMUNE COMPLEX DISEASES.Skin: The outer covering of the body that protects it from the environment. It is composed of the DERMIS and the EPIDERMIS.Complement Factor B: A glycine-rich, heat-labile serum glycoprotein that contains a component of the C3 CONVERTASE ALTERNATE PATHWAY (C3bBb). Bb, a serine protease, is generated when factor B is cleaved by COMPLEMENT FACTOR D into Ba and Bb.Glomerulonephritis: Inflammation of the renal glomeruli (KIDNEY GLOMERULUS) that can be classified by the type of glomerular injuries including antibody deposition, complement activation, cellular proliferation, and glomerulosclerosis. These structural and functional abnormalities usually lead to HEMATURIA; PROTEINURIA; HYPERTENSION; and RENAL INSUFFICIENCY.Autoimmunity: Process whereby the immune system reacts against the body's own tissues. Autoimmunity may produce or be caused by AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES.Complement Activation: The sequential activation of serum COMPLEMENT PROTEINS to create the COMPLEMENT MEMBRANE ATTACK COMPLEX. Factors initiating complement activation include ANTIGEN-ANTIBODY COMPLEXES, microbial ANTIGENS, or cell surface POLYSACCHARIDES.Complement C2: A component of the CLASSICAL COMPLEMENT PATHWAY. C2 is cleaved by activated COMPLEMENT C1S into COMPLEMENT C2B and COMPLEMENT C2A. C2a, the COOH-terminal fragment containing a SERINE PROTEASE, combines with COMPLEMENT C4B to form C4b2a (CLASSICAL PATHWAY C3 CONVERTASE) and subsequent C4b2a3b (CLASSICAL PATHWAY C5 CONVERTASE).Kidney Glomerulus: A cluster of convoluted capillaries beginning at each nephric tubule in the kidney and held together by connective tissue.Complement C3: A glycoprotein that is central in both the classical and the alternative pathway of COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION. C3 can be cleaved into COMPLEMENT C3A and COMPLEMENT C3B, spontaneously at low level or by C3 CONVERTASE at high level. The smaller fragment C3a is an ANAPHYLATOXIN and mediator of local inflammatory process. The larger fragment C3b binds with C3 convertase to form C5 convertase.Mast Cells: Granulated cells that are found in almost all tissues, most abundantly in the skin and the gastrointestinal tract. Like the BASOPHILS, mast cells contain large amounts of HISTAMINE and HEPARIN. Unlike basophils, mast cells normally remain in the tissues and do not circulate in the blood. Mast cells, derived from the bone marrow stem cells, are regulated by the STEM CELL FACTOR.Cell Degranulation: The process of losing secretory granules (SECRETORY VESICLES). This occurs, for example, in mast cells, basophils, neutrophils, eosinophils, and platelets when secretory products are released from the granules by EXOCYTOSIS.Signal Transduction: The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.Inflammation: A pathological process characterized by injury or destruction of tissues caused by a variety of cytologic and chemical reactions. It is usually manifested by typical signs of pain, heat, redness, swelling, and loss of function.Receptors, IgE: Specific molecular sites on the surface of B- and T-lymphocytes which combine with IgEs. Two subclasses exist: low affinity receptors (Fc epsilon RII) and high affinity receptors (Fc epsilon RI).Action Potentials: Abrupt changes in the membrane potential that sweep along the CELL MEMBRANE of excitable cells in response to excitation stimuli.Anaphylatoxins: Serum peptides derived from certain cleaved COMPLEMENT PROTEINS during COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION. They induce smooth MUSCLE CONTRACTION; mast cell HISTAMINE RELEASE; PLATELET AGGREGATION; and act as mediators of the local inflammatory process. The order of anaphylatoxin activity from the strongest to the weakest is C5a, C3a, C4a, and C5a des-arginine.ArchivesBiological Science Disciplines: All of the divisions of the natural sciences dealing with the various aspects of the phenomena of life and vital processes. The concept includes anatomy and physiology, biochemistry and biophysics, and the biology of animals, plants, and microorganisms. It should be differentiated from BIOLOGY, one of its subdivisions, concerned specifically with the origin and life processes of living organisms.Periodicals as Topic: A publication issued at stated, more or less regular, intervals.PubMed: A bibliographic database that includes MEDLINE as its primary subset. It is produced by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), part of the NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE. PubMed, which is searchable through NLM's Web site, also includes access to additional citations to selected life sciences journals not in MEDLINE, and links to other resources such as the full-text of articles at participating publishers' Web sites, NCBI's molecular biology databases, and PubMed Central.Directories as Topic: Lists of persons or organizations, systematically arranged, usually in alphabetic or classed order, giving address, affiliations, etc., for individuals, and giving address, officers, functions, and similar data for organizations. (ALA Glossary of Library and Information Science, 1983)Complement C3a: The smaller fragment generated from the cleavage of complement C3 by C3 CONVERTASE. C3a, a 77-amino acid peptide, is a mediator of local inflammatory process. It induces smooth MUSCLE CONTRACTION, and HISTAMINE RELEASE from MAST CELLS and LEUKOCYTES. C3a is considered an anaphylatoxin along with COMPLEMENT C4A; COMPLEMENT C5A; and COMPLEMENT C5A, DES-ARGININE.

Cutting edge: Fc receptor type I for IgG on macrophages and complement mediate the inflammatory response in immune complex peritonitis. (1/146)

The contributions of Fc receptors (FcRs) for IgG (FcgammaRs) and complement to immune complex (IC)-mediated peritonitis were evaluated in BALB/c-, C57BL/6-, FcRgamma chain-, and FcR type III for IgG (FcgammaRIII)-deficient mice, backcrossed to the C57BL/6 background. In BALB/c mice, but not in C57BL/6 mice, neutrophil migration was markedly attenuated after complement depletion. In mice lacking FcRgamma chain, neutrophil migration was abolished, whereas it was unaffected in FcgammaRIII-deficient mice. Huge amounts of TNF-alpha (TNF) were found in the peritoneal exudate of BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice but were absent in mice lacking FcRgamma chain or FcgammaRIII. Surprisingly, a functional inhibition of TNF in BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice had no effect on neutrophil infiltration. These data provide evidence that in IC peritonitis, the activation of FcR type I for IgG on peritoneal macrophages and the activation of the complement cascade, but not the interaction of ICs with FcgammaRIII and the subsequent release of TNF, initiate the inflammatory response in BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice.  (+info)

Selection of a C5a receptor antagonist from phage libraries attenuating the inflammatory response in immune complex disease and ischemia/reperfusion injury. (2/146)

A C5a-receptor antagonist was selected from human C5a phage display libraries in which the C terminus of des-Arg74-hC5a was mutated. The selected molecule is a competitive C5a receptor antagonist in vitro and in vivo. Signal transduction is interrupted at the level of G-protein activation. In addition, the antagonist does not cause any C5a receptor phosphorylation. Proinflammatory properties such as chemotaxis or lysosomal enzyme release of differentiated U937 cells, as well as C5a-induced changes in intracellular Ca2+ concentration of murine peritoneal macrophages, are inhibited. The in vivo efficacy was evaluated in three different animal models of immune complex diseases in mice, i.e., the reverse passive Arthus reaction in the peritoneum, skin, and lung. The i.v. application of the C5a receptor antagonist abrogated polymorphonuclear neutrophil accumulation in peritoneum and markedly attenuated polymorphonuclear neutrophil migration into the skin and the lung. In a model of intestinal ischemia/reperfusion injury, i.v. administration of the C5a receptor antagonist decreased local and remote tissue injury: bowel wall edema and hemorrhage as well as pulmonary microvascular dysfunction. These data give evidence that C5a is an important mediator triggering the inflammatory sequelae seen in immune complex diseases and ischemia/reperfusion injury. The selected C5a receptor antagonist may prove useful to attenuate the inflammatory response in these disorders.  (+info)

IL-1 and TNF receptor-deficient mice show decreased inflammation in an immune complex model of uveitis. (3/146)

PURPOSE: To determine the role of interleukin-1 (IL-1) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) in the induction of uveitis by a reverse passive Arthus reaction (RPAR). METHODS: Human serum albumin (HSA) antiserum was injected into the vitreous of "knockout" or "double knockout" mice genetically deficient in IL-1 receptor type I (IL-1RI-/-), TNF receptors p55 and p75 (TNFR p55-/-/p75-/-), IL-1RI and TNFR p55 (IL-1RI-/-/TNFR p55-/-), and controls. Twenty-four hours later, animals were challenged with intravenous HSA. Eyes were enucleated 4 hours after antigen challenge, and inflammation was quantitated by counting cells on histologic sections. Interleukin-6 in aqueous humor was measured with a B9 cell bioassay. The distribution of immune complexes in eyes was observed by immunohistochemical staining for IgG and complement component C3. RESULTS: Four hours after antigen challenge, immune complexes were localized at the ciliary body and iris of receptor-deficient mice. A transient uveitis was most severe at this time. A significant reduction in the median number of infiltrating cells was found in TNFR p55-/-/p75-/- mice (4.8, n = 15), compared with controls (14.2, n = 20, P < 0.05). The median number of infiltrating cells was significantly reduced in IL-1RI-/- mice (knockout 2.6, n = 11; controls 7.4, n = 8, P < 0.005). Interleukin-1RI-/-/TNFR p55-/- mice had a strong reduction in infiltrating cells (knockout 1.6, n = 11; controls 27.3, n = 12, P = 0.002). Interleukin-6 activity in aqueous humor was reduced in IL-1RI-/-/TNFR p55-/- mice (P = 0.03) but not in TNFR p55-/-/p75-/- (P = 0.40) mice. Most IL-1RI-/-mice had no detectable aqueous humor IL-6, but this group was not statistically different from controls. CONCLUSIONS: In contrast to endotoxin-induced uveitis, both IL-1 and TNF appear to have critical roles in RPAR uveitis. When receptors for these cytokines were deleted, the severity of immune complex-induced uveitis was profoundly reduced.  (+info)

The Arthus reaction in rodents: species-specific requirement of complement. (4/146)

We induced reverse passive Arthus (RPA) reactions in the skin of rodents and found that the contribution of complement to immune complex-mediated inflammation is species specific. Complement was found to be necessary in rats and guinea pigs but not in C57BL/6J mice. In rats, within 4 h after initiation of an RPA reaction, serum alternative pathway hemolytic titers decreased significantly below basal levels, whereas classical pathway titers were unchanged. Thus the dermal reaction proceeds coincident with systemic activation of complement. The serine protease inhibitor BCX 1470, which blocks the esterolytic and hemolytic activities of the complement enzymes Cls and factor D in vitro, also blocked development of RPA-induced edema in the rat. These data support the proposal that complement-mediated processes are of major importance in the Arthus reaction in rats and guinea pigs, and suggest that BCX 1470 will be useful as an anti-inflammatory agent in diseases where complement activation is known to be detrimental.  (+info)

A codominant role of Fc gamma RI/III and C5aR in the reverse Arthus reaction. (5/146)

Recent attempts to specify the relative contribution of FcR and complement in various experimental systems of immune complex disease have led to opposing conclusions. As concluded in IgG FcRgamma-/- mice, manifestation of disease is almost exclusively determined by FcgammaR on effector cells, arguing for a minor role of complement. In contrast, data obtained with C5aR-/- mice suggested that, dependent on the tissue site, complement is more important than FcgammaR. In this paper, we demonstrate that, in response to IgG immune complex formation, FcgammaRI/III- and C5aR-mediated pathways are both necessary and only together are they sufficient to trigger the full expression of inflammation in skin and lung. Moreover, both effector systems are not entirely independent, suggesting an interaction between FcgammaR and C5aR. Therefore, FcgammaR-mediated responses can be integrated through C5aR activation, which may explain why these two receptor pathways have previously been considered to dominate each other.  (+info)

Contribution of B(2) receptors for bradykinin in arthus reaction-induced plasma extravasation in wild-type or B(2) transgenic knockout mice. (6/146)

The aim of the present study was to investigate the contribution of bradykinin (BK) B(1) and B(2) receptors in a model of type III hypersensitivity, the reverse passive Arthus reaction (RPA), in wild-type mice and transgenic B(2) knockout littermates. BK (10 microg mouse(-1)) or bovine serum albumin (0.5 mg mouse(-1)) induced a sustained Evans blue extravasation for more than 80 min in naive or rabbit anti-bovine serum albumin-treated mice (RPA model), respectively. The response to the two stimuli was prevented by the B(2) receptor antagonist, HOE-140, but not by [Leu(8)]desArg(9)-BK (B(1) receptor antagonist). In contrast to the wild-type littermates, RPA and bradykinin were unable to trigger an increase in plasma extravasation in B(2) knockout mice. Furthermore, endothelin-1 (5 microg mouse(-1)) and a selective NK-1 receptor agonist [Sar(9),Met (O(2))(11)]-SP (20 microg mouse(-1)), triggered a significant increase in peritoneal plasma extravasation in both wild-type and B(2) knockout animals. A pretreatment with indomethacin (200 microg mouse(-1)) significantly reduced the RPA-induced but not the BK-induced increase in Evans blue extravasation. Furthermore, RPA, but not BK, triggered a significant indomethacin-sensitive increase in peritoneal prostaglandin E(2) content. Our results suggest a pivotal role for B(2) receptors in the mechanism of plasma extravasation which occurs during the reverse passive Arthus reaction in the mouse. Moreover, our results suggest an important contribution of prostanoids in the plasma leakage mechanisms triggered by RPA but not by bradykinin.  (+info)

A new small molecule C5a receptor antagonist inhibits the reverse-passive Arthus reaction and endotoxic shock in rats. (7/146)

C5a is implicated as a pathogenic factor in a wide range of immunoinflammatory diseases, including sepsis and immune complex disease. Agents that antagonize the effects of C5a could be useful in these diseases. We have developed some novel C5a antagonists and have determined the acute anti-inflammatory properties of a new small molecule C5a receptor antagonist against C5a- and LPS-induced neutrophil adhesion and cytokine expression, as well as against some hallmarks of the reverse Arthus reaction in rats. We found that a single i.v. dose (1 mg/kg) of this antagonist inhibited both C5a- and LPS-induced neutropenia and elevated levels of circulating TNF-alpha, as well as polymorphonuclear leukocyte migration, increased TNF-alpha levels and vascular leakage at the site of immune complex deposition. These results indicate potent anti-inflammatory activities of a new C5a receptor antagonist and provide more evidence for a key early role for C5a in sepsis and the reverse Arthus reaction. The results support a role for antagonists of C5a receptors in the therapeutic intervention of immunoinflammatory disease states such as sepsis and immune complex disease.  (+info)

Lyn is essential for fcgamma receptor III-mediated systemic anaphylaxis but not for the Arthus reaction. (8/146)

The Src family kinase Lyn initiates intracellular signal transduction by associating with a variety of immune receptors such as antigen receptor on B cells and high-affinity Fc receptor (FcR) for immunoglobulin Ig(E) (FcepsilonRI) on mast cells. Involvement of Lyn in the IgE-mediated immediate-type hypersensitivity is well documented, but the physiological significance of Lyn in IgG-dependent, type III low-affinity FcR for IgG (FcgammaRIII)-mediated responses is largely unknown. In this study, we generated a double-mutant mouse strain deficient in both type II FcR for IgG (FcgammaRIIB) and Lyn to exclude any involvement of inhibitory signaling by FcgammaRIIB, which otherwise downregulates FcgammaRIII-mediated cellular responses. FcgammaRIIB-deficient but Lyn-sufficient mice served as controls. The Lyn deficiency attenuated IgG-mediated systemic anaphylaxis in vivo, and significantly reduced calcium mobilization and degranulation responses of bone marrow-derived mast cells (BMMCs) in vitro. However, we found that either interleukin 4 or tumor necrosis factor alpha release by BMMCs was comparable to that from Lyn-deficient and control mice, and the reverse-passive Arthus reaction was equally induced in both mutant mice, indicating that Lyn is not involved in the onset of the IgG-mediated, FcgammaRIII-dependent late phase responses of mast cells. These findings provide us with insight into distinct signaling mechanisms in mast cells underlying the development of diverse pathologies as well as a therapeutic potential for selective treatment of allergic disorders.  (+info)

Together, the results give strong evidence that in C57BL/6 mice FcγR and C5aR are codominant receptors in the initiation of the Arthus response in both skin and lung and further suggest that the sequelae of IC-triggered inflammation are not necessarily the endpoints of the same reaction. Tissue site-specific differences exist with respect to plasma exudation, which is almost entirely dependent on C5aR in the lung and on both C5aR and FcγR in the skin. FcγRIII is the dominant FcγR for cutaneous and alveolar PMN influx. Interestingly, FcγRI is of additional importance for plasma exudation in the skin and hemorrhage in the lung. These observations, combined with the recent report that FcγRI contributes significantly to enhanced PMN infiltration in IC-induced peritonitis (20), indicate that effector cells expressing FcγRI are involved in IC-triggered inflammation. In the lung, the alveolar macrophage expressing FcγRI, FcγRII, and FcγRIII is the most prominent cell type in the alveoli and ...
The concurrent administration of compound E at a daily dosage of 2 mg. per kg. to rabbits receiving daily intracutaneous injections of crystalline egg albumin markedly inhibited the development of anaphylactic hypersensitivity of the Arthus type. ACTH, when given at a similar dosage, produced a much less marked effect. Both hormones suppressed circulating antibody and as with the Arthus reaction, the suppression produced by compound E was much greater than that obtained with ACTH.. When treatment with compound E was started following sensitization, there was a rapid decline in circulating antibody and, if the pretreatment serum antibody was low, there was also a progressive decrease in skin reactivity, becoming negative after 5 days of treatment. When the pretreatment serum antibody concentration was great, so that by the termination of treatment the antibody concentration was still above the level ordinarily sufficient for a maximal skin response, the Arthus reaction was unaffected by ...

You want to stand up straight but in order to get through the work day you need to move around. When you have to bend forward, reach or squat, remember to activate your deep abdominal muscles in order to help them assist in stabilizing your back.. Often times when you flare up your back these muscle begin to not working properly even though they are key in stabilizing your back. By setting your core, you wake them up and get them to help stabilize your back and decrease the stress on your back.. There is a lot you can do when your back flares up to address the initial pain. What I do and I know it will help you is to keep moving in order to prevent the back from locking up, stop to take a few belly breaths to battle the tension in your lower back and take an extra second to set your core prior to movement.. I hope this helps you. I know this was key in the pain phase of my back flare up. In future blog posts I will talk about the mobility and muscle imbalances phases.. Rick Kaselj, MS. P.S. - If ...

And, then the dreaded flare up. I just havent felt that well all of 2009. I have been very tired, have had oozy eyes, and I have been having more tummy problems than usual. The signs were there that a big one was coming. By Thursday, I was so sick! I should have gone to the hospital, but I was determined to deal with this at home. My last flare up cost me about $4,000 for a night in the hospital emergency room. So, not this time! Thursday night was absolutely miserable. I cant remember when I have had so much pain, and I had the dreaded night sweats. Other people with Crohns Disease talk about these, but I have not had the privilege of experiencing night sweats until Thursday. And, I hope I never have to experience night sweats again! Good grief! Well, I lived through the night, but I am still trying to recover. It is now Sunday night, and I still have not eaten any solid foods. It will probably take at least several more days to be able to eat. And, my stomach continues to hurt so badly! ...

I was first diagnosed with UC in January 2009. Ive been taking Lialda since I was diagnosed (4 pills a day) and I took Canasa for a few mos after being diagnosed. I also was on Iron pills for the first 8 mos or so after being diagnosed. Ive been fortunate enough to not have a flare up until now. Its only a moderate flare up, pretty manageable so far (knock on wood). The question i have is has anyone else experienced depression with flare ups? These past couple of weeks Ive been exhausted (sure sign of a flare up, I shouldve known) and this week, when the bleeding started, Ive just been constantly down. I cant get out of this funk, which is making me more upset. I guess Im just sort of rambling (sorry) but nobody else understands I guess ...

[...] in HBOs The Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway, a one-off premiering Saturday on the premium channel, the word for the day is (spoiler alert) fun, and every time someone like Miss Yvonne, Chairy or Cowboy Curtis uses the word, the real-life audience at New Yorks Stephen Sondheim Theater screams in ear-splitting unison. On the entirely scientific Sheen-Gibson-Lohan Scale, it seems like a relatively tame transgression today, but (occasionally stoned adults in the TV audience notwithstanding), CBS summarily canceled the shows reruns in 1991. Back to hopping weightAlthough there were moments between the last of the shows five seasons and today when Reubens resembled Chairy more than his scrawny alter-ego, hes back to hopping weight in the theatrical spin-off of the TV show, filmed in January at the end of its limited New York run. The channel hasnt entirely conquered the challenges of making the leap from the stage to TV, but nonetheless, even with the limitations inherent in jamming live
I'm in my 20s and I had a bike incident 1.5yrs ago landing on my hip with the bike landing on my knee. I've seen two physios who have just given me stretches and sent me on my way.

Will I ever be able to be normal again?

His guess was that I had a bad case of mono and I am just still suffering from symptoms. GRANTED, prior to my flare up in Jan I felt fine. My flare did not start out me feeling sick. It started out with neuro symptoms. So If it was mono prior to that, I would have known it, right??? I mean you cant have a bad case of mono and feel great, correct ...

This is the one I talk about the most, because it is the one that I have. This type of lupus can affect anything and everything in the body, hence the term systemic, which means that it can affect multiple parts of the body. SLE can affect the skin, organs and other body tissues. It varies in severity, ranging from life-threatening to so mild that it is barely noticeable. Those of us with this disorder can experience a range of symptoms, including the most common ones such as joint pain, migraines, skin rashes, photo-sensitivity, organ malfunction and failure, chest pain, blood disorders, neuropsychiatric manifestations, muslce pains, oral and nasal ulcers, fatigue and fevers. SLE is very unpredictable and each flare up is different. Some flare ups may be short-lived, or last for ages; or you may experience one flare up after another, or have a flare up and not get another for years. Every lupus patient is different. The treatments include steroids, immune suppressants, biologics and ...

I run a private Facebook Group for people who have The Gutsy Girls Bible: an approach to healing the gut, and yesterday there was an interesting conversation about what not to eat while flaring, so I put together a list of 21 things to do during a Colitis flare up.. It seems like so long ago since I had a Colitis flare up, but even still, I remember crystal clear what they were like and what I did while going through them. I wrote about it via Food & 3 Things to do During a Colitis Flare Up. I have also written Learn to Cook: Top 10 Tips for Cooking with Colitis.. Both posts provide some helpful information, but I have learned so much about gut healing during these past couple of years, and while I still agree (mostly) with my thoughts before on "what to do during a Colitis flare up," I also believe that I would be doing you no favors if I didnt tell you what I believe is likely even more important than my former suggestions.. In case you dont want to go back and read the former posts, I will ...

Besides its affect to the physical appearance of an individual, psoriasis could be a nuisance, which he has to handle for a life time. Some individuals experience unforeseeable flare ups that include extreme itchiness as well as discomfort in the impacted locations. There are likewise instances that these flare ups trigger the skin to fracture as well as hemorrhage which can awaken the individual in the middle of his rest. These cycles of flare ups influence the person literally as well as mentally. A person might experience rest starvation, depression and low self-confidence. Some people also feel embarrassed since other individuals attempt to prevent them. This is because of the fact that common people assume that psoriasis is contagious, which is a common false impression. This problem cannot be gotten even after a straight contact with an individual with psoriasis.. Currently, a lot more research studies are still being done to totally comprehend psoriasis. The remedy for the problem is yet ...
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects 1.5 million Americans and an estimated 5 million people world wide. Lupus damages parts of the body such as the skin, joints and muscles. Similar to other autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, the bodys immune system no longer recognizes the difference between itself and foreign invaders and begins to produce antibodies that attack and destroy healthy tissue. This attack can cause pain and inflammation in the joints and muscles making simple daily tasks a challenge. The complications associated with lupus are known as flare ups since they often go through periods of remission and then surface or flare up again.. Effecting primarily women, lupus is most often diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 44 and is more prevalent in ethnic groups such as African Americans, Asians and Latinos. Each year 16,000 new cases of lupus are reported and those diagnosed can have normal lives with effective treatment.. ...
Dear To anal or not to anal,. Its great that you are exploring additional ways to enjoy sex while simultaneously being conscientious about your health. Many people with Crohns in remission worry about the possible causes of "flare ups," which are still not fully understood. The good news is that it is unlikely that anal sex could cause a flare up because most (not all) areas affected by Crohns are higher up in the colon or small intestine and not located right at the anus. Certainly there are cases where fissures, inflammation, irritation, or fistulas (sores in the lining of the colon that may extend to the vagina, skin, or other areas of the colon) can appear near the anus, but this is relatively rare.. You mention wall-thickening and possible narrowing of your ileum. The ileum is much higher up in your bowel, in the small intestine. So while this may affect digestion, stomach cramps, or nausea, it should not be aggravated by anal sex. However, as with any sex, anal sex should not be ...

Having MS is a bitch. Up until a decade or so ago, there were no effective medications, and even now that there are drugs that slow progression, one must still learn to cope with debilitating symptoms. So you try things- you try yoga, you try different kinds of exercise, you experiment with your diet, you try acupuncture. You try crazy things you never thought youd try because when the flare ups come- and you dont know when the flare ups are going to come- you know you arent going to be able get through the day. Yah, the people that try these things might seem crazy, but if you wish to consider yourself a decent human being, and not a subhuman monster, youll cut them some fucking slack... ...

Amazon.com description: Product Description: What is aging? Aging is not a mysterious metaphysical phenomenon. Aging happens in the particulars. Your arteries become clogged. Your arthritis flares up. Age is not just a chronological measurement; its the rate at which the primary internal guardians of health--your cardiovascular and immune systems--decline. While your chronological age is fixed, your biological age may be years older--or younger--depending on a combination of factors. RealAge offers a revolutionary, systematic program that calculates the aging effect of more than 100 different health behaviors--ranging from diet and medication to stress control and chronic smoking--and enables you to assess your own biological age. Most important, it shows you how to design a specific path to improving or reversing your own aging trajectory. Developed by Dr. Michael F. Roizen, chair of anesthesia and critical care at the University of Chicago and preventive gerontologist, along with four other ...

In her novels, Powell is cold-eyed and confident; in her diaries, the mask sometimes slips, and she reveals the debilitating effects of writing brilliantly and selling poorly. She is vain ("In Turn, Magic Wheel, I believe firmly that I have the perfect New York story") and self-pitying ("Its too horrible a life, waking up to the jabbering of a noisy maniac, a dreadful future for all of us to face - 10,000 days of hopeless work to pay for hopeless treatments"). Saddest of all, she is forever scheming to sell out and win commercial success, at which she has no more luck than Henry Jamess Ralph Limbert, the hapless hero of "The Next Time," whose books become ever more subtle the harder he tries to water them down.. But just when the reader is starting to tire of Powells understandable unhappiness, her wit flares up irresistibly. "Wits," she wrote in 1939, "are never happy people. The anguish that has scraped their nerves and left them raw to every flicker of life is the base of wit. . . . True ...

BCX 1470 is a serine protease inhibitor with the IC50 of 96 nM for factor D and 1.6 nM for C1s. Serine proteases are enzymes that cleave peptide bonds in proteins which are found ubiquitously in both eukaryotes and prokaryotes and serine serves as the nucleophilic amino acid at the active site. According to structure, serine proteases are divided into trypsin-like (chymotrypsin-like) family and subtilisin-like family. It is reported that serine proteases play an important role in various physiological functions, including digestion, immune response, blood coagulation and reproduction. BCX 1470 is a potent serine protease inhibitor and functions on the complement enzymes CIs and factor D sites. By determining the ability of enzyme to hydrolyze appropriate synthetic substrates, the result showed that BCX 1470 inhibited the factor D and C1s esterolytic activity which were important in the function of serine protease. In induced dermal RPA reaction rat model, administration of BCX 1470 markedly ...

Hi Freddd - Actually.. when poisoned via ciguatera. It is best to stay away from any and all fish. Even the smallest amount of ciguatoxin can trigger a flare up. With possibly worsening effects. This is something you dont want to happen. Some even say that nuts, chocolate,caffeine and alcohol can trigger a reaction to it. I have had nuts, chocolate and my morning ritual of my coffee with caffeine and have not had a flare up. I did wait six months however before having the nuts. I am going to attempt some red wine this weekend. I am hoping not to have a flare up with this. As I had mentioned my b-12 levels are within normal limits as per my blood work which is great and I had been getting weekly shots of cyn-b-12 Once a month with c-complex and cyn-b-12. However I would like to know who I would have to contact to try this other b-12 as I know also I havent had any noticable response from these shots. Also, if poisoned with Ciguatera fish oil is out of the question also. These things are a must ...

Avoid your triggers as much as possible, particularly anything that will dry the skin further like soaps, perfumes and chemicals.

What a rosacea sufferer ate plays a big role in managing their rosacea symptoms. There is correlation between the gut and the skin. Foods to avoid including alcohol, starchy and sugary foods, caffeine, dairy, soy, peanuts, and artifical sweeteners.

I have it in my wrist and it sucks. Its really put a damper on the kayaking and my golf game lately. I had my first flare up two summers ago and the doc diagnosed me with tendinitis. Only recently after the 2nd flare up, did I figure out (on my own with a little help from WebMD) that it was gout. I woke up one morning and my wrist was swollen, sore and I could barely move it. I hadnt suffered any trauma or injury so I couldnt figure out why it was so sore. With another misdiagnosis

The negative effects and decreased responsiveness from long-term corticosteroid treatment are potential risks. Being quite unsightly, eczema is also a reason for an individual to withdraw in a social circle. Eczema arises because of environmental factors such as exposure to substances having harsh chemicals. As a pharmacist, I do not advocate for or against the use of herbal products, and I am aware that millions of consumers worldwide use some form of herbal product with eczema cure home remedies without conventional medicine.

As youve possibly experienced, your doctor isnt likely to supply you with a healing method so that you must discover your way to figuring out how to work with your body in a healing crisis. A doctor will often test to see whether the stomach is tender in a checkup for a way to evaluate the seriousness of the sores. Also, its mandatory that you tell your physician about each and every symptom, even when you think its irrelevant. For example, your health care provider may prescribe unique medications in the event the ulcer is brought on by pain relievers.. You could just discover the way your reflux reacts to individual foods! For lots of people, drinking hot beverages also helps relieve constipation. Though if the signs are severe enough for medication to be ineffective, surgery could be asked to remove the affected section of the colon. If you notice any of these symptoms, it would be best to seek advice from your physician for the suitable diagnosis and treatment. You could also discover ...

What is bronchiectasis?. Bronchiectasis is a long term condition affecting the airway tubes (bronchi and bronchioles). The airway tubes become narrower due to inflammation and in certain small areas the breathing tubes develop pockets probably due to both scarring and weakness around the airway. The existence of these pockets in the airways mean that mucus gets trapped. The trapped mucus does not get removed as quickly as usual and this allows bugs that end up in the lung to stay there and cause problems. Once the bugs grow to a certain level a chest infection or flare up occurs. This scarring and inflammation makes sufferers prone to infection. Due to the scarring, bronchiectasis cannot be cured but is treatable.. Symptoms. Symptoms vary between individuals, with some sufferers having only one or two and others all of the symptoms listed below;. ...

The fundamental cause of eczema is a genetically weakened or under-performing skin barrier. However, research is increasingly discovering that although the underlying causes of eczema are largely genetic and therefore inevitable, frequency and intensity of flare ups and worsening symptoms could come down to something that can be controlled……bacteria. Bacteria is both and enemy and […]. Read More ...

Plaque psoriasis is the commonest sort of psoriasis. Psoriasis is a standard, continual, autoimmune illness that causes dry, purple, scaly patches and flakes to look on the pores and skin. The rash usually goes away for some time, however then it flares up once more, usually on account of a set off, comparable to stress.Its…
Its been a quiet few days on the doctor front. We have kept in close contact with Elis medically complex doc and have spoken with the geneticists dietitian multiple times but other than that not much. The dietitian is working hard to come up with the perfect feeding and fluid schedule for Eli. Thats tough to do taking into account all of the issues that are going on with him. Shes not rushing into any changes or decisions so we are patiently waiting for her final recommendations. Eli is up to 2 teaspoons of cornstarch a day mixed into feeds, and today we will trial out 3 teaspoons. So far his GI system seems to be handling it a bit better and this morning was one of his highest blood sugars in quite some time. He has an issue going on with a lymph node in his groin that we are keeping a close eye on. He also seems to be currently having a flare up of his skin conditions and we are working to keep that under control ...
My parents, now fully retired, were as meek as lambs. Im glad theyve had the ability to decompress from forty years work of daily work, often in positions of great authority and stress. Dad had his second ulcer a few months back and lost 40 pounds, but he looks much healthier this way. I hope he keeps the weight off. Mom continues to struggle with severe back pain, but has learned to manage it with pain killers and by recognizing precisely how and why her pain flares up. The last time I saw her she was barely able to walk, but now she can take strides without much difficulty. I wish she wasnt so dependent on pain killers, but I trust her ability to mind her condition successfully ...
It hurts and our learned behaviour is to protect the hurting part by stopping things touching it and moving less or resting. This is the best thing to do if the pain was from an injury but its not. I know that I need to override the normal pain response and move normally and not protect the hurt part. It isnt easy. Thats where the mirrors come in. The brain message is wrong. I cannot take pain medicine but even if I could Id only be treating the symptoms of pain not the cause. The cause is these false messages. By looking at the mirror image of the body part opposite to the one that hurts moving, the brain gets visual stimulus of a moving pain free limb. The brain is being retrained. For me there is usually no instant difference. About 10 minutes after Ive finished I notice that I dont feel quite as bad. I do it again and again. It takes effort and I need to keep doing it for several days or weeks. I treat each flare up immediately before it spreads (as it very quickly does for me). Doing ...

Several things can cause eczema to flare up. These include cigarette smoke, pollen and even your clothes. Take a look at the eczema triggers that lurk in your house.
Atopic Dermatitis (AD): AD is the most common type of eczema and often affects infants and children. Also known as atopic eczema or infantile eczema, this condition may also affect adults. The appearance of AD can be characterized by irritated, red rashes that can result in small, fluid-filled bumps. Children who have a family history with hay fever, asthma, or allergies are more genetically predisposed to the condition as flare ups of AD are usually triggered by these specific reactions. Fortunately, more than half of infants or toddlers who suffer from atopic eczema "grow out" of the condition by the time they are teenagers ...

Noahs long course of IV Ancef ended yesterday and Ive been dreading this for a while, especially with his birthday coming up on Sunday. His line site is still draining crud and weve been silver nitrating it with no improvement. Hes battling a cold, and yesterday was a particularly rough day of retching, secretions and worries about aspiration. (Not sure if this is cold related, or due to the small amount of Neocate we have started adding to his Tolerex formula. Time will tell...). Call it that "mommy instinct", but Ive been worried about what will flare up once he is no longer covered with the Ancef. We are no longer in the "Noahs doing great" days, but rather in the "hes ok, but things arent quite right" days. We met with ID yesterday, who wanted to stop the Ancef and have a team meeting down the road to discuss trying the ethanol locks. Not what I wanted to hear. I had been hoping that this would all be sorted out and ready to go. But the appointment was a bit of a jumble, since ...
It has been a long road over the last month with constant worry and stress about whats going on inside of Yoshi and whether or not I will lose my baby before I was expecting to. Now, I know dogs dont live forever. Thats impossible. But I did believe that Yoshi would live to be the normal amount of dog years, 14 to 16 years. So to be told otherwise at such a young age was like a ton of bricks. It impacted my frame of mind and has really left me wanting to do nothing more than zone in on something that wasnt my life. There is still not clear definite answer on what is wrong though. So there is still hope it isnt cancer and that it is merely a flare up of pancreatitis or something similar to do with the pancreas. I take him back tomorrow for another ultra sound and x-rays of his chest to make sure there is nothing going on there. He developed what we thought is kennel cough. The emergency vet last night said she didnt think it was that. So... another worry to add on top of the pile. Is it ...

Curious how we have a similar story minus the positive celiac diagnosis.Im 37 and for the past 17 years I had major heartburn and heart palpatations as well as odd flare ups of fatgue etc.I have also spent odd times where Id go a week or two in an anxious mode then a week or two angry ,then a week or two depressed.All for no good reason,I have a stable life for the most part.Only this year can I honestly say has been pure hell.It all started as chest tightness and back pain and has now flourished into body wide pain that cones and goes (not fibro tender points) more like muscle knots that come and go.Pain in face and jaw,sinuses, major sinus items like post nasal drip,photophobia etc.Since Ive taken probiotics I dont get heartburn as much but loose stools etc and gas.After tons of tests,endoscopy,echo scans of abdomin,kidneys,mris of spine,neck etc and sooooo many blood tests including diabeties thyroid,hepatitis ,red/white cells and god knows what else,nothing came back negative.Ive been off ...

Hello... I need some advice on what to do. My baby is 10.5 weeks. Apparently she has silent reflux. I had no idea because she does not fuss or cry any more than a normal baby would. I have seen her spit up and she does so without discomfort. She almost seems relieved by it. I have also heard her silently refluxing and again it doesnt seem to bother her. I believe she had painful reflux earlier on, and a flare up last week when I consumed some dairy. Heres the thing - at weighted feeds with

I will be 27 soon, and I have had acne since I was 12. It has gone away at times, only to flare up and make my life more complicated. Anyone who has had bad acne knows how horrible it can be for a girl, all you want is to feel normal and like you can leave in the morning witout spending time on make up. I am a professional now too, and hate it when people get to close to me. Anyhow, it seems like stress definitley does make my acne and other symptoms worse. I hate to admit it because doctors always resort to stress as a cause when they don t know the cause. I am scared, and feel ...

Recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA) is a single tube, isothermal alternative to the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). By adding a reverse transcriptase enzyme to an RPA reaction it can detect RNA as well as DNA, without the need for a separate step to produce cDNA,. Because it is isothermal, RPA can use much simpler equipment than PCR, which requires a thermal cycler. Operating best at temperatures of 37-42 °C and still working, albeit more slowly, at room temperature means RPA reactions can in theory be run quickly simply by holding a tube. This makes RPA an excellent candidate for developing low-cost, rapid, point-of-care molecular tests. A recent international quality assessment of molecular detection of Rift Valley fever virus performed as well as the best RT-PCR tests, detecting less concentrated samples missed by some PCR tests and an RT_LAMP test. RPA was developed and launched by TwistDx Ltd. (formerly known as ASM Scientific Ltd), a biotechnology company based in Cambridge, UK. ...
Question - Have allergic aspergillosis. Would a flare up result in low blood oxygen level?. Ask a Doctor about diagnosis, treatment and medication for Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, Ask an OBGYN, Gynecologic Oncology
Acute diseases are characterized by sudden onset of symptoms that are uncharacteristic for the individual, causing a sudden change in mood, reactions to stimuli, or physical characteristics.. Chronic diseases are characterized by symptoms that are either ongoing over months or years, or seem to repeatedly appear and cause suffering for the individual, such as diabetes, migraines, or arthritis. When symptoms flare up in a chronic disease state, the individuals personality, and modalities (preferring warmth or cold for example) are unchanged with the presence of the symptoms.. It is critical to first clarify if the symptoms that command treatment are acute or a flare up of chronic disease. This helps us focus on symptoms that are very unusual for that individual, thus giving those symptoms more weight.. July 2002: Alchemy, an 11-year-old Oldenburg gelding (purchased as a four-year-old and training in dressage), was diagnosed with insulin resistance. Symptoms included a dull hair coat, bossy, ...
Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a dangerous infection with pandemic potential. It emerged in 2002 and its aetiological agent, the SARS Coronavirus (SARS-CoV), crossed the species barrier to infect humans, showing high morbidity and mortality rates. No vaccines are currently licensed for SARS-CoV and important efforts have been performed during the first outbreak to develop diagnostic tools. Here we demonstrate the transient expression in Nicotiana benthamiana of two important antigenic determinants of the SARS-CoV, the nucleocapsid protein (N) and the membrane protein (M) using a virus-derived vector or agro-infiltration, respectively. For the M protein, this is the first description of production in plants, while for plant-derived N protein we demonstrate that it is recognized by sera of patients from the SARS outbreak in Hong Kong in 2003. The availability of recombinant N and M proteins from plants opens the way to further evaluation of their potential utility for the development of
Rheumatoid arthritis is characterised by osteoclast-mediated bone loss. In several studies it was shown that SHIP-/- mice are severely osteoporotic due to increased numbers of hyperreactive osteoclasts. Because SHIP is part of the signalling pathway of the inhibitory FcγRIIB, the aim of this study was to investigate the role of FcγRIIB in osteoclastogenesis and osteoclast function.. Compared with wild-type mice, bone erosion and cathepsin K staining were clearly enhanced during antigen-induced arthritis in the knee joints of mice deficient for the inhibitory FcγRIIB. FACS analysis of in vitro differentiated osteoclasts showed that FcγRIIB expression was not significantly different on osteoclasts compared with macrophages, whereas all activating FcγR classes were strongly downregulated. However, expression levels of all FcγR classes were high on all bone marrow subsets prone to differentiate towards osteoclasts, as discriminated by double-staining for ER-MP20/ER-MP12. The composition of ...

By depletion of C3 from rabbits undergoing acute experimental immune complex disease with an anticomplementary factor in cobra venom, it has been possible to demonstrate that deposition of the complexes in arteries and glomeruli does not require the complement components reacting after C2.. Immunological reactions, in which platelets release their vasoactive amines, have been examined in rabbits undergoing immune complex disease. A correlation was obtained between the presence of a complement-independent reaction which required blood leukocytes, antigen and platelets, the deposition of immune complexes, and the induction of glomerulonephritis.. C3 depletion did, however, have a marked alleviating effect on the severity of the arterial lesions. Neutrophil accumulation and the subsequent necrotizing arteritis were prevented. In contrast, the character and severity of the glomerulonephritis was not altered by depletion of later-acting complement components.. ...
