Inhibition of degranulation and interleukin-6 production in mast cells derived from mice deficient in protein kinase Cbeta. (1/35)

The antigen-mediated activation of mast cells by means of IgE antibodies bound to the cell surface leads to direct interactions between FcepsilonRI receptor cytoplasmic domains and various intracellular proteins. These interactions initiate diverse signal-transduction pathways, and the activation of these pathways results in the immediate release of proinflammatory agents. A delayed response also occurs and includes the release of various cytokines. It is clear that the activation of kinases is a requirement for the exocytosis observed in mast cells. In addition to the tyrosine phosphorylation of the affected system by soluble tyrosine kinases, activity of protein kinase C (PKC) results in serine or threonine phosphorylation of multiple protein substrates. In this study, we found that mast cells derived from PKCbeta-deficient mice produce less interleukin 6 in response to IgE-Ag. The inhibition of exocytosis in the PKCbeta-deficient mast cells occurred whether the stimuli were due to the aggregation of the mast cell surface FcepsilonRI or to the calcium ionophore, ionomycin. However, no significant changes were observed in the proliferative response of the mast cells to interleukin 3 (IL-3) or in their apoptotic rate after IL-3 depletion.

A novel human immunoglobulin Fc gamma Fc epsilon bifunctional fusion protein inhibits Fc epsilon RI-mediated degranulation. (2/35)

Human mast cells and basophils that express the high-affinity immunoglobulin E (IgE) receptor, Fc epsilon receptor 1 (Fc epsilon RI), have key roles in allergic diseases. Fc epsilon RI cross-linking stimulates the release of allergic mediators. Mast cells and basophils co-express Fc gamma RIIb, a low affinity receptor containing an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif and whose co-aggregation with Fc epsilon RI can block Fc epsilon RI-mediated reactivity. Here we designed, expressed and tested the human basophil and mast-cell inhibitory function of a novel chimeric fusion protein, whose structure is gamma Hinge-CH gamma 2-CH gamma 3-15aa linker-CH epsilon 2-CH epsilon 3-CH epsilon 4. This Fc gamma Fc epsilon fusion protein was expressed as the predicted 140-kappa D dimer that reacted with anti-human epsilon- and gamma-chain specific antibodies. Fc gamma Fc epsilon bound to both human Fc epsilon RI and Fc gamma RII. It also showed dose- and time-dependent inhibition of antigen-driven IgE-mediated histamine release from fresh human basophils sensitized with IgE directed against NIP (4-hydroxy-3-iodo-5-nitrophenylacetyl). This was associated with altered Syk signaling. The fusion protein also showed increased inhibition of human anti-NP (4-hydroxy-3-nitrophenylacetyl) and anti-dansyl IgE-mediated passive cutaneous anaphylaxis in transgenic mice expressing human Fc epsilon RI alpha. Our results show that this chimeric protein is able to form complexes with both Fc epsilon RI and Fc gamma RII, and inhibit mast-cell and basophil function. This approach, using a Fc gamma Fc epsilon fusion protein to co-aggregate Fc epsilon RI with a receptor containing an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibition motif, has therapeutic potential in IgE- and Fc epsilon RI-mediated diseases.  (+info)

Two new farnesane-type sesquiterpenes, hedychiols A and B 8,9-diacetate, were isolated from the methanolic extract of the fresh rhizome of Hedychium coronarium KOEN. cultivated in Japan. Their stereostructures were elucidated on the basis of chemical and physicochemical evidence. The inhibitory effects of isolated constituents on the release of beta-hexosaminidase from RBL-2H3 cells were examined, and hedychilactone A and coronarin D were found to show the inhibitory activity.  (+info)

Flow cytometry versus histamine release analysis of in vitro basophil degranulation in allergy to Hymenoptera venom. (4/35)

BACKGROUND: Flow cytometry (FCM) has been proposed for specific allergy in vitro testing. We investigated its biological significance for allergy to Hymenoptera venoms and compared it with the routinely performed basophil histamine release test (HRT). METHODS: Blood samples from 26 allergic and 8 nonallergic donors were incubated with venom at serial concentrations. Basophils were analyzed with anti-CD45-PE-Cyanin 5, Anti-IgE-FITC, and Anti-CD63-Phycoerythrine. HRT was measured by radioimmunoassay. RESULTS: FCM was as convenient as HRT for measuring basophil reactivity in at least 87% of allergic and 75% of nonallergic subjects. CD63 outer expression was specifically induced in 91% of releaser subjects (86% on HRT) and in 1 of 10 tests in nonallergic donors, or one of six tests (16% on HRT) in allergic patients tested with an irrelevant allergen. Both methods were concordant in 85.7% of the tests. The three discordant patients had low-grade reactions and borderline biological responses on FCM (n = 2) or HRT (n = 1). CONCLUSIONS: The dynamic, physiologic significance of CD63, the dose-response curve, and dependency on ethylene-diaminetetra acetic acid suggested that both tests reflect the same mechanism.  (+info)

Flow-assisted quantification of in vitro activated basophils in the diagnosis of wasp venom allergy and follow-up of wasp venom immunotherapy. (5/35)

BACKGROUND: Correct identification of the culprit venom is a prerequisite for specific venom immunotherapy (VIT). Despite the efficacy of VIT, issues as how to monitor treatment and when to discontinue maintenance therapy remain to be established. METHODS: To evaluate diagnostic performances of the basophil activation test (BAT) in wasp venom allergy, 80 patients with a definite history of wasp venom anaphylaxis (systemic reactors) and 14 wasp-stung asymptomatic controls (stung controls) were enrolled. Venom-induced basophil activation was analyzed flow cytometrically by double-labeling with anti-IgE and anti-CD63. Results were compared to wasp IgE levels and results of a venom skin test (VST). To establish whether the BAT constitutes a candidate marker to monitor VIT, the BAT was repeated in 22 patients on the 5th day of a build-up course and after 6 months of maintenance VIT. Whether the BAT could contribute in the decision of discontinuing VIT was assessed in a cross-sectional analysis in 30 patients receiving treatment for 3 years. RESULTS: Comparison between systemic reactors and stung controls revealed a sensitivity of 86.4% and specificity of 100% for venom IgE, and sensitivity of 81.8% for VST, respectively. In contrast to stung controls, patients demonstrated dose-dependent venom-induced basophil activation. The BAT attained a sensitivity of 83.8% and specificity of 100%. At the end of the build-up course, no effect of VIT on the BAT was demonstrable. When the BAT was repeated after 6 months of treatment, submaximal stimulation of the cells demonstrated a significant decreased CD63 expression (P < 0.04). Patients having VIT for 3 years also demonstrated significantly lower venom-induced CD63 expression (P < 0.001). After 3 years, 60% of the patients had a negative BAT for submaximal stimulation of the cells whereas only 17.9% of the patients had negativation of wasp IgE. CONCLUSIONS: The BAT is a reliable instrument for the diagnosis of wasp venom anaphylaxis and might constitute an instrument to monitor wasp VIT.  (+info)

Diclofenac induces basophil degranulation without increasing CD63 expression in sensitive patients. (6/35)

Diclofenac (Dc) induces an IgE-independent basophil (Ba) degranulation in susceptible individuals. CD63 Ba expression is utilized as an in vitro test for diagnosis of drug hypersensitivity. We tested the ability of Dc to induce CD63 Ba expression by flow cytometry (BAT) and Ba degranulation using light microscopy (HBDT) in patients sensitive to Dc. We studied 14 patients with diclofenac hypersensitivity, also two patients sensitive to Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (Dp), and 12 normal controls. HBDT was performed by mononuclear cells toluidine blue staining. BAT determined CD63 expression in antiCD63/anti-IgE/anti-CD45-labelled whole blood. In each case, the percentage of activated Ba post-stimulation with 1 and 10 microg/ml Dc was determined. Positive controls included N-formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (fMLP) peptide-induced activation. IgE-mediated Ba activation was induced with a Dp allergenic extract. With Dc 1 microg/ml, mean HBDT in Dc-susceptible individuals was 33.62 +/- 18.35% and 8.49 +/- 4.79% in controls (P = 0.0001). Mean BAT was 2.04 +/- 1.68% and 1.93 +/- 1.40% in controls (P = 0.8). Ba preincubation with Dc did not affect fMLP-induced CD63 expression, neither in Dc-sensitive individuals (P = 0.8) (n = 4) nor in subjects without Dc hypersensitivity (P = 0.25) (n = 4). Ba from the two patients sensitive both to Dc and Dp responded to Dp but not to Dc by BAT: Dc, 1.99 +/- 0.78%; Dp: 60.87 +/- 9.28%; but showed degranulation by HBDT: Dc, 30.53 +/- 1.02%, Dp: 48.78 +/- 22.17%. Dc induces Ba degranulation in sensitive patients in a way that does not induce CD63 expression and is different from IgE-mediated and fMLP-mediated degranulation. Our results suggest that CD63 expression is not a reliable diagnostic method for diclofenac allergy.  (+info)

Hymenoptera venom allergy: taking the sting out of difficult cases. (7/35)

BACKGROUND: Correct identification of the culprit venom is a prerequisite for specific venom immunotherapy. OBJECTIVE: To assess whether the basophil activation test (BAT) constitutes an additional diagnostic instrument in patients with equivocal or negative specific immunoglobulin (Ig) E or venom skin test (VST) results. METHODS: One hundred eighteen patients with a compelling history of IgE-mediated hymenoptera venom allergy were enrolled. Venom-specific IgE was quantified by ImmunoCAP and VST was performed in all patients. Basophil activation was analyzed by flow cytometry after labeling with anti-IgE and anti-CD63. RESULTS: In 64 out of 118 patients, diagnosis was considered as definite and the entomologic description was confirmed by unequivocal and concordant positive specific IgE and VST results. In 53 of those 64 patients, BAT confirmed diagnosis, whereas the remaining 11 patients were nonresponsive in the BAT analysis. Forty-seven patients (40%) had a tentative diagnosis of venom allergy, as they had divergent specific IgE or VST results. In 31 of those patients, BAT was positive only for the suspected venom and helped to establish diagnosis of wasp and honeybee venom allergy in 28 and 3 patients, respectively. BAT was diagnostic in 7 patients with complete negative results for specific IgE and VST, despite clear entomologic identification. CONCLUSIONS: In about half the patients with diagnosis of venom allergy, unequivocal specific IgE and VST results are obtained and additional tests are not needed. In the remainder, diagnosis is less straightforward due to discrepant or negative specific IgE orVST results. In these patients, BAT constitutes a helpful additional instrument to identify the culprit venom and start venom immunotherapy accordingly.  (+info)

Chronic idiopathic urticaria: comparison of clinical features with positive autologous serum skin test. (8/35)

BACKGROUND: Chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU), in its extremely severe form, can pose a therapeutic challenge to the treating physician. It has been noted that in one third of such patients, autoantibodies against the IgE receptor are seen and such patients have more severe and unremitting urticaria. AIM: To compare clinical features of autoimmune urticaria with those of other CIU patients. METHODS: We conducted a prospective study in an attempt to correlate the clinical features with autoantibodies, indirectly detected via the autologous serum skin test (ASST), which is the simplest and the best in vivo clinical test for detection of basophil histamine-releasing activity. DISCUSSION: Out of 100 patients with chronic idiopathic urticaria, 34 showed a positive reaction to the autologous serum skin test and it was found that the frequency and severity of attacks was higher in these patients. CONCLUSION: ASST may be used as a simple and cost-effective test for the classification of chronic urticaria, which has proven to be a therapeutic challenge to the treating physician.  (+info)

In the face of increasing prevalence of hypersensitivity reactions, introduction of effective, reliable and safe methods plays a crucial role in their diagnosing. Among the currently available laboratory (in vitro) methods is basophil activation test (BAT). It is a flow- cytometry based assay that allows to identificate in the blood sample basophils and additionally to asses the degree of cell activation after exposure to an antigen. The most common superficial identification markers are CD63 and CD203c, which increase in number after activation. Basophil actvation test can be applied to confirm diagnosis of allergy to Hymenoptera venoms, food, pollens and hypersensitivity to drugs. The aim of present paper is to present theoretical methods of this test as well as its pros and cons. We focus also on presentation of clinical case where BAT seemed to be a necessary addition to a routine diagnostic pathway. We present a case of identification of the culprit drug which caused an anaphylactic ...

definition of CIU, what does CIU mean?, meaning of CIU, Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria, CIU stands for Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria
RESUMEN. The basophil activation test (BAT) has become a pervasive test for allergic response through the development of flow cytometry, discovery of activation markers such as CD63 and unique markers identifying basophil granulocytes.. Basophil activation test measures basophil response to allergen cross-linking IgE on between 150 and 2000 basophil granulocytes in ,0.1 ml fresh blood. Dichotomous activation is assessed as the fraction of reacting basophils.. In addition to clinical history, skin prick test, and specific IgE determination, BAT can be a part of the diagnostic evaluation of patients with food-, insect venom-, and drug allergy and chronic urticaria. It may be helpful in determining the clinically relevant allergen.. Basophil sensitivity may be used to monitor patients on allergen immunotherapy, anti-IgE treatment or in the natural resolution of allergy. Basophil activation test may use fewer resources and be more reproducible than challenge testing. As it is less stressful for the ...
Immediate selective hypersensitivity reactions to pyrazolones are thought to be mediated by specific-IgE antibodies. The diagnosis of selective reactions to pyrazolones is mainly based on the clinical history, skin testing and/or drug provocation test (DPT). Skin testing has low sensitivity and has potential risk of eliciting an anaphylactic response as well as DPT. Therefore the use of in vitro tests could be a safe and straightforward approach, although till now no well-validated test is available. Basophil activation test (BAT) has been proposed as a new in vitro diagnostic tool for different drug reactions although its sensibility is not optimal. The aim of this study was to analyze the potential usefulness of dipyrone metabolites to improve BAT sensitivity. ...

Hypersensitivity reactions to betalactams (BLs) are classified as immediate or nonimmediate. The former usually appear within 1 h of drug-intake and are mediated by specific IgE-antibodies. Nonimmediate reactions are those occurring more than 1 h after drug-intake, and they can be T-cell mediated. The diagnostic evaluation of allergic reactions to BLs has changed over the last 5 years, for several reasons. Major and minor determinants are no longer commercially available for skin testing in many countries. In immediate allergic reactions, the sensitivity of skin testing and immunoassays is decreasing and new in vitro methods, such as the basophil activation test, are gaining importance for diagnosis. For nonimmediate reactions, skin testing appears to be less sensitive than previous results, although more studies need to be carried out in this direction. Nevertheless, the drug provocation test is still necessary for diagnosis. ...
Basophil activation in unfractionated samples such as whole blood can be measured by changes in the expression of cell surface markers or even intracellular events (e.g. phosphorylation, oxidative burst, calcium flux) by flow cytometry. Separate markers (e.g. as CD123+ HLA-DR-) are used to specifically identify basophils in addition to those used for assessment of activation. A feature of this protocol is to stimulate the basophils both in the presence and absence of autologous plasma. This protocol is specifically for a mouse allergen SCIT study conducted at JHU. ...

This study investigates the demographic features, laboratory findings and the response to treatment of CIU patients prospectively in a medical center in northern Taiwan. Methods and Results: Thirtythree patients (15 females, 18 males, median age 32.79 years) with CIU were included according to the protocal approved for this study. A laboratory survey, including complete blood cells (CBC) with differential count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), biochemistry panels, autoimmune profiles, thyroid function and multiple allergy simultaneous test (MAST) were conducted and analyzed before and after once daily ...
Introduction There is growing evidence that some cases of chronic idiopathic urticaria are associated with various autoimmune diseases such as thyroid autoimmunity. The association between chronic urticaria (CU) and thyroid disorders has been a subject of controversy. Some reports link CU with hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. The frequency of thyroid antibodies in patients with chronic idiopathic urticaria reported in 2009 was 30%, which is higher than that previously reported. Objective This is a case-control study that aimed to detect the presence of markers of thyroid autoimmunity (thyroid autoantibodies with or without underlying abnormal thyroid functions) among a cohort of autologous serum skin test (ASST)-positive patients with CU in comparison with ASST-negative CU patients as well as with healthy controls, and correlating it to the severity of urticaria symptoms. Patients and methods This study was carried out on 80 CU patients attending the Allergy and Immunology Clinic of Ain Shams ...

Basophils are a type of granulocyte named for their propensity for binding basic dyes. They also possess large granules filled with histadine, proteolytic enzymes, leukotrienes, and proteoglycans. Basophils help generate inflammatory reactions in response to IgE and can be recruited for allergic responses. Human basophils can often be phenotyped cells that express 2D7 antigen, CD123, CD203c, FceRIa (they do not express CD117). Mouse basophils can be identified by expression of CD200R3 and FceRIa. BioLegend develops and manufactures world-class, cutting-edge immunological reagents for biomedical research, offered at an outstanding value.

Clone FR3-16A11 recognizes CD203c, a glycosylated type II transmembrane molecule that belongs to the family of ecto-nucleotide pyrophosphatase/ phosphodiesterase (E-NPP3) enzymes. Among hematopoietic cells, expression of CD203c is restricted to basophils as well as to mast cells and their precursors, and has been described as specific for this lineage. Protein and/or mRNA expression of CD203c has also been found in solid tissues such as uterus or prostate. Basophils and mast cells are key producers of mediators that drive the onset of inflammatory responses, e.g., in allergy. Allergen challenge leads to a rapid up-regulation of activation markers such as CD203c or CD63. Due to its restricted expression pattern, CD203c is discussed as a specific marker to monitor the allergen-induced activation of basophils, e.g., in flow cytometric basophil activation tests of the peripheral blood. - Great Britain

The inhibitory myeloid immunoglobulin receptor CD300a (IRp60) has been shown to downregulate mast cell and eosinophil activities, thereby serving as a potential target for inhibiting allergic effector cell input in allergy. Our aims were to study the expression and functional properties of this receptor in purified human basophils, cells that crucially contribute to Th2-type immunity and allergy. Basophils homogeneously expressed CD300a as well as the inhibitory receptor CD200R on their cell surface, and these expressions increased after anti-IgE stimulation. IgE-mediated basophil degranulation was also significantly inhibited by crosslinking of either CD200R or CD300a (by 90% and 50%, respectively). Inhibitory SHIP-1 phosphorylations were also induced by CD200R and CD300a, although they were not noticeably increased by IgE-dependent activation. We conclude that both CD200R and CD300a play a role in reducing IgE-mediated basophil function and may crucially govern the known differential ...
Omalizumab, a humanized monoclonal anti-IgE antibody has the potential to alter allergen processing. Recently, it has been postulated the assessment of PHA-stimulated adenosine triphosphate (ATP) activity as maker of CD4+ T cells activity in peripheral blood cells. We present the case report of a 35-year-old woman with a history of chronic idiopathic urticaria and angioedema of 8 years of development with poor response to treatment. The patient was partially controlled with cyclosporine at doses of 100 mg/12 h. However, she was still developing hives daily. Finally treatment with omalizumab was started at dose of 300 mg every 2 weeks. The patient experienced a decrease in urticarial lesions 2 days after starting therapy. We also evaluated the effects of omalizumab therapy on the activity of peripheral blood CD4+ T cells from the patient, in order to determine the potential modification of anti-IgE therapy on the process of antigen presentation-recognition. Activity of CD4+ cells by ATP release was

Ebastine, is a H1 antihistamine with low potential for causing drowsiness. It does not penetrate the blood-brain barrier to a significant amount and thus combines an effective block of the H1 receptor in peripheral tissue with a low incidence of central side effects, i.e. seldom causing sedation or drowsiness. After oral administration, ebastine undergoes extensive first-pass metabolism by hepatic cytochrome P450 3A4 into its active carboxylic acid metabolite, carebastine. This conversion is practically complete. Ebastine is a second-generation H1 receptor antagonist that is indicated mainly for allergic rhinitis and chronic idiopathic urticaria.

OMALIZUMAB TRIAL. The results of the first of three phase III clinical trials of the effects of omalizumab in patients with chronic idiopathic urticaria were reported online in the New England Journal of Medicine this week.. Urticaria (hives) occurs when mast cells in the skin are triggered to release histamine and other inflammatory mediators stored in cytoplasmic granules (degranulation). In acute urticaria due to allergic reactions, degranulation is triggered when allergen is bound by IgE antibodies attached to FcεRI receptors on the mast cell surface. However, chronic urticaria is not IgE mediated and the mechanism by which mast cells are triggered to degranulate and release histamine is not known.. Omalizumab is a recombinant humanized monoclonal antibody which binds rapidly to circulating IgE, inhibiting its attachment to FcεRI receptors on basophils and mast cells. Expression of FcεRI receptors in basophils is downregulated within 2 weeks, and within 8 weeks there is reduced ...
Physical urticaria is a distinct subgroup of the urticaria that are induced by an exogenous physical stimulus rather than occurring spontaneously. There are seven subcategories that are recognized as independent diseases. Physical urticaria is known to be a painful, itchy and physically unappealing; which can recur for months to years of a persons life. There are seven sub-categories of physical urticaria: delayed pressure urticaria (DPU) cholinergic urticaria (ChU) cold urticaria (CU) solar urticaria (SU) Acute pressure urticaria (AU) chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU) symptomatic dermatographism urticaria (SDU) (most common) Characterized by dermal edema (wheal) and erthema (flare) also known as hives. Hive lesions typically last less than 24 and are usually pruritic. Hives can appear on anywhere on the body and they may change shape, move around, disappear and reappear over short periods of time. Acute urticaria (short-term): can develop suddenly and will last less than 6 weeks. About 1 in 6 ...
Although omalizumab (anti-IgE) is currently only approved for the treatment of asthma and chronic idiopathic urticaria, it has also been studied as an off-label treatment for numerous allergic conditions, including use as an adjunct to allergen immunotherapy in the treatment of allergic rhinitis, asthma, venom hypersensitivity and food allergy. We conducted a review of publications involving the use of omalizumab with allergen immunotherapy, by searching PubMed with key search terms of "omalizumab" and "immunotherapy." Omalizumab has been used in combination with inhalant allergen immunotherapy for the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis and comorbid asthma. Read More ...
Treatment of allergic disease by decreasing circulating IgE with anti-IgE Abs is currently under clinical study. Based on previous unrelated studies, it appeared likely that Fc(epsilon)RI expression on basophils and mast cells might also be regulated by levels of circulating IgE Ab. Therefore, the expression of IgE and Fc(epsilon)RI on human basophils was examined in 15 subjects receiving humanized anti-IgE mAb intravenously. Treatment with the anti-IgE mAb decreased free IgE levels to 1% of pretreatment levels and also resulted in a marked down-regulation of Fc(epsilon)RI on basophils. Median pretreatment densities of Fc(epsilon)RI were approximately 220,000 receptors per basophil and after 3 mo of treatment, the densities had decreased to a median of 8,300 receptors per basophil. Flow cytometric studies, conducted in parallel, showed similar results and also showed in a subset of 3 donors that receptors decreased with a t1/2 of approximately 3 days. The responsiveness of the cells to ...
The immune system identifies self (safe) from non-self (pathogen), and subsequently mounts a variety of responses against non-self. Nutrients occupy a unique place, because despite being foreign (non-self) substances they routinely enter the body through normal food intake. This poses a challenge for the immune system, and the reasons why the immune system usually does not mount an immune response are not fully understood. Food allergies (as defined by a positive IgE response to specific foods) do however occur, and respond to diets eliminating the food in question. An IgE response is however just one form of immune response, and non-IgE mediated immune responses (sometimes referred to as food intolerance) may be responsible for a wide range of clinical symptoms associated with the consumption of foods. One of the challenges in the field of non-IgE mediated food intolerance is the lack of standardized testing. LA testing has been clinically used for 30 years, and its utility has been examined in ...

Mediators pre-stored in neutrophil azurophilic granules are central to the acute inflammatory response and tissue degradation and damage through their proteolytic activity. Different granule populations mobilize and release their content via distinct and hierarchical molecular mechanisms. The molecular mechanisms by which mediators pre-stored in azurophilic granules are mobilized and released to the extracellular space remain largely unknown. We used a number of complementary techniques including; confocal laser scanning microscopy, subcellular fractionation, flow cytometric analyses, Western blot analyses and electron microscopy to examine the ultrastructural and molecular nature of mediator release in neutrophil azurophilic granules. We found that following IL-8 activation, neutrophil azurophilic granules undergo piecemeal degranulation (selective mediator release) leading to altered granule content. Piecemeal degranulation of azurophilic granules is characterized by budding of small secretory ...
Being diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroiditis was, at least for me, a very tough thing to swallow. Suddenly, without any warning whatsoever, my body had started to attack itself. If the symptoms of the disease werent bad enough (sudden, extreme weight gain, brittle hair, extreme fatigue, brain fog, etc), I was faced with having to find a new General Practitioner and Endocrinologist due to health insurance/financial reasons.. I have already undergone Food Allergy Testing with my former Endocrinologist and Skin Allergy Testing in the Department of Dermatology at Baylor College of Medicine.

Based on genetic studies that establish the role of spleen tyrosine kinase (Syk) in immune function, inhibitors of this kinase are being investigated as therapeutic agents for inflammatory diseases. Because genetic studies eliminate both adapter functions and kinase activity of Syk, it is difficult to delineate the effect of kinase inhibition alone as would be the goal with small-molecule kinase inhibitors. We tested the hypothesis that specific pharmacological inhibition of Syk activity retains the immunomodulatory potential of Syk genetic deficiency. We report here on the discovery of (4-(3-(2H-1,2,3-triazol-2-yl)phenylamino)-2-((1R,2S)-2-aminocyclohexylamino) pyrimidine-5-carboxamide acetate (P505-15), a highly specific and potent inhibitor of purified Syk (IC50 1-2 nM). In human whole blood, P505-15 potently inhibited B cell antigen receptor-mediated B cell signaling and activation (IC50 0.27 and 0.28 μM, respectively) and Fcε receptor 1-mediated basophil degranulation (IC50 0.15 μM). ...

VIT is globally accepted as the treatment of choice in venom allergy.15. Although 44 patients in the current study declared a negative effect of VIT on work, caused by changing working time and economic loss due to VIT, most of our participants declared an indifferent effect of VIT on work. Individuals at high risk of sting reported a positive VIT impact on work. This will support the accepted medical approach that occupation may influence the decision to initiate VIT, also for non-life-threatening reactions.5. Another predictor of a perceived positive effect from VIT was completion of treatment. Participants who have already completed VIT are probably more aware of the long-term beneficial effects of treatment. They are less likely to report any drawbacks of VIT, such as the time spent in therapy, which can affect work and social life. A relevant number of participants reported a negative impact of VIT on work and even if we could not find any peculiar characteristic of this group, this finding ...
This study shows that histamine is liberated from human basophils by betaxolol and metipranolol and, to a significantly lesser extent, by timolol. The fact that we detected LDH in the supernatant indicated that the β blocker concentrations we used were cytotoxic to leucocytes. This cytotoxic effect may also explain the histamine liberation because we do not consider that high concentrations of β blockers are less toxic to basophils than to other leucocytes. Also, in previous studies other authors have used LDH levels to determine the cytotoxic effects on basophils in similar test conditions.14 Betaxolol and timolol formulations are commercially available in 0.1%, 0.25%, and 0.5% concentrations and metipranolol formulations are commercially available in 0.1%, 0.3%, and 0.6% which equals approximately 2.5 × 10-3 to 2 × 10-2 M. The cytotoxicity found in these experiments therefore occurs at concentrations that are used in commercial formulations. However, it should be noted that, upon ...

Treatment failure during venom immunotherapy (VIT) may be associated with a variety of risk factors. Our aim was to evaluate the association of baseline serum tryptase concentration (BTC) and of other parameters with the frequency of VIT failure during the maintenance phase. In this observational prospective multicenter study, we followed 357 patients with established honey bee or vespid venom allergy after the maintenance dose of VIT had been reached. In all patients, VIT effectiveness was either verified by sting challenge (n = 154) or patient self-reporting of the outcome of a field sting (n = 203). Data were collected on BTC, age, gender, preventive use of anti-allergic drugs (oral antihistamines and/or corticosteroids) right after a field sting, venom dose, antihypertensive medication, type of venom, side effects during VIT, severity of index sting reaction preceding VIT, and duration of VIT. Relative rates were calculated with generalized additive models. 22 patients (6.2%) developed ...

Mercuric chloride (HgCl2) is an industrial agent known to cause autoimmune disorders and induce IgE synthesis, which plays a crucial role in the manifestation of allergic diseases. In rodents, the immunomodulatory effects of HgCl2 have been shown to involve the enhancement of mast cell-derived IL-4 secretion, which facilitates both Th2-lymphocyte development and IgE production. In humans, rapid allergen-dependent release of IL-4 and the related cytokine IL-13 from histamine-containing cells occurs primarily in basophils, along with other proinflammatory mediators such as histamine and LTC4. In this study, we therefore investigated the effects of HgCl2 on the release of the above basophil mediators, either due to the compound alone or in conjunction with IgE-dependent stimulation. HgCl2 (10(-9) to 10(-6) M) did not induce mediator secretion alone but significantly enhanced the release of histamine, LTC4, IL-4, and IL-13 caused by anti-IgE. Higher concentrations of HgCl2 (10(-5) to 10(-3) M) ...

Results PRN1008 was safe and well-tolerated in both parts of the study without changes in vital sign, ECG or laboratory measurements. In the MAD, treatment emergent adverse events (AEs) were reported by 50-88% of PRN1008-treated subjects, and 50% of placebo-treated subjects, with mild gastrointestinal AEs more common following PRN1008 vs. placebo. PRN1008 was rapidly cleared with a mean terminal half-life for all doses of approximately 4 hours on day 10. Maximal plasma concentrations ranged from 43 to 630ng/mL, 1-2 hours after dosing on day 1 or day 10. In these same subjects, BTK occupancy ranged from 75±7 to 90±6% (mean ± SD) at four hours on day 1, and 84±4 to 93±2% at four hours on day 10. BTK occupancy declined slowly and persisted at 12 and 24 hours. BTK occupancy at trough (12 or 24 hours) on day 10 ranged from 59±11 to 80±6%, at which time plasma PRN1008 concentrations were negligible. A reduction of basophil activation of up to 73±14.5% (mean ± SD) was observed 4 hours after ...
We are also evaluating whether the augmented vascular permeability, which has been identified in several types of inflammation, including settings that are characterized by piecemeal degranulation of mast cells or basophils, reflects enhanced formation and/or function of endothelial cell vesiculo-vacuolar organelles (VVOs), rather than transport through classical interendothelial cell gaps such as those that develop in postcapillary venules immediately after the administration of large amounts of histamine

N2 - Background: Venom allergen immunotherapy (VIT) is proven to be highly effective for insect allergy, but the mechanisms and the biomarkers associated with clinical efficacy remain elusive. Objective: The aim of this study was to identify candidate biomarkers associated with successful VIT. Methods: Gene chip array and clustering analyses of PBMCs from subjects with or without VIT were performed. Results: From gene chip array and clustering analyses, an increased expression of osteopontin was found in patients who completed 5 to 6 years of VIT and discontinued therapy for 3 to 6 years (completed treatment group) compared with the untreated group. A significantly higher level of serum osteopontin was found in the ...
