Autoantibodies to T cell costimulatory molecules in systemic autoimmune diseases. (1/725)

To determine whether antilymphocyte Abs to T cell costimulatory molecules are generated in patients with autoimmune diseases and, if they exist, to clarify the mechanism of their production and pathological roles, we investigated the presence of autoantibodies to CTLA-4 (CD152), CD28, B7-1 (CD80), and B7-2 (CD86) in serum samples obtained from patients with various autoimmune diseases and from normal subjects using recombinant fusion proteins. In ELISAs, anti-CD28, anti-B7-1, and anti-B7-2 Abs were rarely seen, whereas anti-CTLA-4 Abs were detected in 8.2% of the patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, 18.8% of those with rheumatoid arthritis, 3.1% of those with systemic sclerosis, 31.8% of those with Behcet's disease, 13.3% of those with Sjogren's syndrome, and 0% of healthy donors. This reactivity was confirmed by immunoblotting. More importantly, the purified anti-CTLA-4 Abs reacted with CTLA-4 expressed on P815 cells by flow cytometry. In addition, we found at least three epitopes on the CTLA-4 molecule. Furthermore, among the patients with Behcet's disease, uveitis was seen significantly less frequently in the anti-CTLA-4 Ab-positive patients. Taken collectively, these data indicate that anti-CTLA-4 autoantibodies are generated in systemic autoimmune diseases by an Ag-driven mechanism and may modulate the immune response in vivo by binding to CTLA-4 on T cells.  (+info)

The critical region for Behcet disease in the human major histocompatibility complex is reduced to a 46-kb segment centromeric of HLA-B, by association analysis using refined microsatellite mapping. (2/725)

The HLA-B51 allele is known to be associated with Behcet disease. Recently, we found a higher risk for Behcet disease in the MICA gene, 46 kb centromeric of HLA-B, by investigation of GCT repetitive polymorphism within exon 5 of MICA. The pathogenic gene causing Behcet disease, however, has remained uncertain. Here, eight polymorphic microsatellite markers, distributed over a 900-kb region surrounding the HLA-B locus, were subjected to association analysis for Behcet disease. Statistical studies of associated alleles detected on each microsatellite locus showed that the pathogenic gene for Behcet disease is most likely found within a 46-kb segment between the MICA and HLA-B genes. The results of this mapping study, and the results of an earlier study of ours, suggest that MICA is a strong candidate gene for the development of Behcet disease.  (+info)

Behcet's disease sera containing antiendothelial cell antibodies promote adhesion of T lymphocytes to cultured human dermal microvascular endothelial cells. (3/725)

Antiendothelial cell antibodies (AECA) have been detected in the sera of patients of autoimmune diseases showing vasculitis. Using IgM-ELISA, we found AECA in 42 (56%) of 75 sera samples from patients with Behcet's disease in a previous study. All of the 15 AECA-positive sera of Behcet's disease patients had an increased expression of the intercellular cell adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), 93.3% of the sera induced the vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1), and 100% of the serum induced the E-selectin molecule on human dermal microvascular endothelial cells (HDMEC). After stimulation of HDMEC with AECA-positive sera of Behcet's disease patients, the expression of ICAM-1 and VCAM-1 on HDMEC increased significantly at 4 hours, reaching a peak at 16 hours. Expression of E-selectin was induced at 1 hour after stimulation with a peak at 4 hours and it decreased thereafter. Adherence of T lymphocytes to HDMEC increased significantly after stimulation with AECA-positive sera from Behcet's disease patients. Also, the adherence of T lymphocytes to HDMEC increased at 4 hours and returned to its normal level at 48 hours. These results show that AECA-positive sera of Behcet's disease patients are capable of activating HDMEC to promote the adherence of T lymphocytes to increase the expression of ICAM-1, VCAM-1, and E-selectin on the cell surfaces. The whole process may play an important role in the pathogenesis of vasculitis in Behcet's disease.  (+info)

Childhood Behcet's disease: clinical features and comparison with adult-onset disease. (4/725)

OBJECTIVE: To study the clinical spectrum of Behcet's disease (BD) in childhood, in comparison to adult-onset disease. METHODS: Nineteen children, who fulfilled disease criteria up to the age of 16 yr, were studied. The results were compared to those of 34 adult patients with BD. An activity index and severity score were calculated for both study groups. RESULTS: The mean age of disease onset was 6.9+/-3.9 yr, similar ages of onset were found in males and females. The clinical spectrum of childhood BD resembled that of adult disease; however, the prevalence of certain manifestations was different between children and adults. Children with BD had significantly less genital ulcers, less vascular thromboses and more non-specific gastrointestinal symptoms, as well as central nervous system involvement and arthralgia. A relatively high prevalence of uveitis was found in childhood BD. The activity index and severity score were significantly lower in children than in adults. CONCLUSION: Our results point to a similar systemic expression of BD in children and adults; however, the disease seems to run a less severe course in children.  (+info)

Anti-Sa antibody in Chinese rheumatoid arthritis. (5/725)

OBJECTIVE: To test anti-Sa antibody in different autoimmune connective tissue diseases and analyze the relationship between Sa antibody and clinical manifestations and laboratory tests in rheumatoid arthritis. METHOD: Sa antigen was extracted from human placenta. Anti-Sa antibody was tested in 40 normal people and 478 connective tissue disease (CTD) patients using Western Blotting (WB). RESULTS: Sa antigen was a protein with molecular weights of 50 kD and 55 kD. Anti-Sa antibody was positive in 31.9% (61/191) rheumatoid arthritis (RA), 3.0% (2/67) Sjogren's syndrome (SS), 4.3% (2/46) systemic lupus erythmatosus (SLE) and 0% (0/66) Behcet's disease, 0% (0/60) polymyositis/dermatomyositis (PM/DM), 0% (0/66) other CTD and 0% (0/40) normal controls. Anti-Sa antibody was different from other auto-antibodies in RA. In rheumatoid arthritis its sensitivity, specificity, positive prediction rate, negative prediction rate were 31.9%, 98.6%, 93.8% and 68.5% respectively. Anti-Sa antibody positive patients were significantly different from anti-Sa antibody negative patients in moming stiffness, ESR, ANA and X-ray grade. CONCLUSION: Anti-Sa antibody was a new auto-antibody for the diagnosis of RA. Anti-Sa antibody positive patients seem to have more serious inflammation and more advanced disease process.  (+info)

Oligoclonal T cell expansions in patients with Behcet's disease. (6/725)

Behcet's disease (BD) is a multisystem disorder with oral and genital ulcers, mucocutaneous, ocular, joint, vascular and central nervous system involvement. In this study, the peripheral T cell repertoire was analysed in patients with BD with MoAbs against T cell receptor (TCR) Vbeta gene products in CD4+ and CD8+ T cell compartments, and these were compared with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients and healthy controls (HC). In the CD4+ T cell compartment, oligoclonal TCR Vbeta expression was observed in 56% of BD (10/18), 71% of RA (5/7) patients and 21% (3/14) of HC. In the CD8+ T cell group 50% of BD (9/18), 57% of RA patients and 28% of HC (4/14) had an oligoclonal TCR repertoire. An increase of TCR Vbeta5.1 subset was observed in five BD patients among CD8+ T cells. Other elevations of TCR Vbeta subsets were heterogeneously distributed with one to three different Vbeta subsets. Our results suggest an antigen-driven oligoclonal increase of T cells in BD. There was no overall increase in any Vbeta group to suggest a superantigen effect. Analysis of the responsible antigens causing the increase in T cell subsets may give insights into the aetiopathogenesis of BD and immunomodulation of these T cells may lead to new treatments.  (+info)

The authors present the clinical findings of a 30-year-old female and a 29-year-old male who both had isolated unilateral lateral rectus muscle palsy in neuro-Behcet's disease. The clinical feature related to isolated abduscens nerve palsy was identified by CT, systemic assessment and extraocular examination. These patients' constellation of findings appear to be unique: it does not follow any previously reported pattern of ocular manifestations of neuro-Behcet's disease.  (+info)

Association of MICA gene and HLA-B*5101 with Behcet's disease in Greece. (8/725)

PURPOSE: Behcet's disease (BD) is known to be associated with HLA-B51 in many different ethnic groups. Recently MICA, a member of a novel family of the human major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I genes termed MIC (MHC class I chain-related genes), was identified near the HLA-B gene, and a triplet repeat microsatellite polymorphism was found in the transmembrane (TM) region. Because a strong association with BD of one particular MICA-TM allele, A6, was shown in a Japanese population, the present study was conducted to investigate microsatellite polymorphism in Greek patients with BD to know whether this association is generally observed in BD occurring in other populations. METHODS: Thirty-eight Greek patients with BD and 40 ethnically matched control subjects were examined for MICA microsatellite polymorphism using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and subsequent automated fragment detection by fluorescent-based technology. RESULTS: Similar to the Japanese patients with BD, the phenotype frequency of the MICA-TM A6 allele was significantly increased in the Greek patients with BD (50.0% in control subjects versus 86.8% in BD cases), with an odds ratio (OR) of 6.60 (P = 0.0012). The MICA-A6 allele was found in a high frequency both in males and females (weighted OR = 6.68; P = 0.0017). No association was found between the A6 allele and several disease features. A strong association exists between the MICA-TM A6 allele and the B*5101 allele in both the control subjects and patients with BD (weighted OR = 44.39; P = 0.0000023). CONCLUSIONS: This study revealed in Greek patients a strong association of BD with a particular MICA-TM allele, MICA-A6, providing insight into the molecular mechanism underlying the development of BD.  (+info)

Objective: Behcets disease is a chronic inflammatory vasculitis. Vascular involvement is one of the major complications of Behcets disease, during the course of the disease. Previous studies showed that ACE inhibitors and statins may improve endothelial functions in endothelial dysfunction. The aim of our study is to compare the effects of atorvastatin and lisinopril to placebo on endothelial dysfunction in patients with Behcets disease. Patients and methods: We prospectively studied 92 (48 female) Behcets patients who were diagnosed according to the International Study Group criteria. Endothelial dysfunction was evaluated by brachial artery flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) method using high-resolution vascular ultrasound device at baseline and after for 3-month therapy. Patients were consecutively randomized into three groups as (atorvastatin (n = 31), lisinopril (n = 31), and placebo groups (n = 30). Patients in atorvastatin group received 20 mg atorvastatin, lisinopril group received 10 mg ...
Earlier, we reported that the microRNA (miR)-155 expression in dendritic cells (DCs) from Behcets disease (BD) patients was decreased and affected cytokine production of DCs. In this study, we investigated the mechanisms whereby miR-155 regulates cytokine production by DCs. The formation of autophagosomes in DCs was detected by transmission electron microscopy. Western blotting was used to detect the protein levels of LC3, Beclin-1, P62, p-mTOR, and p-Akt in DCs. TNF-α, IL-6, and IL-1β expression were investigated by ELISA. MiR-155 mimics were transfected to DCs to evaluate its effects on autophagy and cytokine production. RNA interference was used to downregulate the expression of TAB2. The formation of autophagosomes was found in DCs of active BD patients. The expressions of LC3-II, Beclin-1, and P62 were significantly increased in DCs of active BD patients compared to that of inactive BD patients and healthy controls. The expressions of IL-6, IL-1β, and TNF-α were significantly increased in DCs

Behcets Syndrome: Turkish dermatologist, Hulusi Behcet (1889-1948) recognized and reported in 1937 symptoms of Behcets syndrome.
Heat shock protein (HSP, 60/65 kDa) is investigated as a candidate autoantigen in Behcets disease (BD), a systemic vasculitis of unknown origin, and a prominent response to disease-specific epitopes of mycobacterial and human HSP60/65 is described in BD patients. In this study, long-term T cell lines from peripheral blood of BD patients (n = 6) and controls (n = 7) were stimulated with mycobacterial recombinant HSP and purified protein derivate (PPD) and expanded with IL-2. In the BD group, 15 out 27 and in the controls, 25 out of 35 PPD specific T cell lines have responded to the synthetic peptides of the human HSP60. Out of the primarily HSP-specific T cell lines, 17/23 in patients and 8/8 in controls did recognize a peptide of human origin. T cell lines specifically reactive to 136-150, 179-197, 244-258 and 336-351 could be raised with similar frequency in both groups. In contrast to a previous report, T cells also reacted to peptide 425-441 frequently in both groups. The results ...
Behcets disease (BD) is a chronic inflammatory disorder that can affect many systems in the body. Cardiac involvement increases the risk of cardiovascular mortality and occurs in 1%-5% of patients with BD. Ventricular arrythmias are believed to be the cause of this increased risk of cardiovascular mortality and it is also thought to be related with cardiac autonomic dysfunction. Heart rate turbulence (HRT) is a new predictor of cardiac autonomic activity. HRT is an independent and powerful predictor of mortality. In this study, we investigated the cardiac autonomic activity which can be determined by HRT in patients with BD. Forty patients with BD (20 men, mean age: 40 ± 9 years, range: 27-55 years) were diagnosed according to the International Study Group Criteria (ISGC) and gender and age matched healthy volunteers (20 men, mean age: 39 ± 8 years, range: 26-56 years) were included in this study. All of the participants (patients and controls) underwent 24 hours Holter electrocardiogram. HRT

No reasons for uveitis can be diagnosed in 30 - 40 % of the patients. Uveitis can result from factors like viruses, fungi and parasites and as well as it may develop as an indication of another disease in the body. For this reason in uveitis cases, different possible diseases shall be examined and various analyzes shall be conducted. Additionally, the uveitis may be concurrent with systemic diseases. Behcet Syndrome can be given as an example of this type. Yet, each uveitis case does not result from Behcet syndrome.. The other disease that may cause uveitis can be stated as: Infections (bacteria, virus, parasite or fungi) can spread from other parts to the eye (tuberculosis, syphilis, herpes, toxoplazmosis, etc), eye trauma, immune system disease, rheumatismal diseases and ulcerative colitis..

Vascular Behcets disease has a poor prognosis. This poor prognosis is due to postoperative complications including pseudoaneurysm with 50% occurrence after previous surgical repair of aneurysm especially at the site of surgery. It is suggested that the fragility of the vascular wall may play a major role in this recurrence. Recent studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of endovascular stent-grafting for recurrent aortic aneurysm in patients with Behcets disease. We present a recurrent aneurysm of the abdominal aorta at a previously scarred operative site in a known case of Behcets disease. We attempted an endovascular treatment.. ...

Purpose: Infliximab (Inflix), is an anti- TNFα monoclonal antibody, resolves effectively ocular inflammation in Behçets disease (BD) patients by suppressing inflammatory process via TNFα. It is reported that treatment with Inflix inhibits Th-cell differentiation into Th17 cells and promotes regulatory T cell production in BD patients with uveitis.,br /, In this study, we examined quantitative changes of cytokines produced by various Th cells specific for ocular tissue antigens before and after treatment with Inflix in BD patients with uveitis.. Methods: Eight BD patients with uveitis during treatment with infliximab were recruited in this study. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were obtained before infusion of infliximab and at 1 week after the infusion. PBMCs were also obtained from 10 healthy subjects as the control. Each sample was cultured for 48 hrs with IRBP, and supernatants were collected at the end of culture. IL-1β, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, IL-17A, IL-17F, IL-21, IL-22, IL-25, ...
Behcets Disease is a rare immune-mediated small-vessel systemic vasculitis characterized by ocular problems and mucous membrane ulceration, and can also involve visceral organs such as the pulmonary, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and neurological systems and the gastrointestinal tract. This is the forum for discussing anything related to Behcets Disease
Symptoms of Behcets disease vary from mild to severe, are chronic (long-lasting), and often come and go. Flares (worsening of symptoms) and remissions (improvement of symptoms) are common.
Interleukin 27 (IL-27) is an important regulator of the proinflammatory T-cell response. In this study, we investigated its role in the pathogenesis of Behçets disease (BD). IL-27 mRNA in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) was examined by performing RT-PCRs. Cytokine levels in sera or supernatants of PBMCs, naïve CD4+ T cells, dendritic cells (DCs) and DC/T cells were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. We used RNA interference in naïve CD4+ T cells to study the role of interferon regulatory factor 8 (IRF8) in the inhibitory effect of IL-27 on Th17 cell differentiation. Flow cytometry was used to evaluate the frequency of IL-17- and interferon γ-producing T cells. The expression of IL-27p28 mRNA by PBMCs and IL-27 in the sera and supernatants of cultured PBMCs were markedly decreased in patients with active BD. A higher frequency of IL-17-producing CD4+ T (Th17) cells and increased IL-17 production under Th17 polarizing conditions were observed in patients with active BD. IL-27
Results Subjects without PPL were excluded before analyses. Demographic features and mean number of PPL according to site of body were summarized in Table-1. Mean number of total PPL were similar between BS and HS and significantly higher than in RA (p,0.001). Mean number of total PPL according to sex were similar in RA and HS but higher in male BS patients compared to female BS patients (p=0.04). When we analyzed the number of PPL according to different body sites, we observed that BS patients had significantly more lesions on the legs when compared to the RA patients and HS (p,0.0001). Number of PPL lesions tend to decrease as the patient ages in BS similar to RA and HS. When leg lesions were analyzed according to age, this difference remained in the age groups 31-50 and ,50 but not in the age group ≤30. Corticosteroid use did not impact the results. ...
The development of an ideal therapy to immunosuppress patients with Behcets disease, a cause of endogenous uveitis and a major cause of acquired blindness in adults, is an important research goal. Corticosteroids remain the mainstay of therapy for intraocular inflammation; however, many patients are intolerant or resistant to corticosteroid therapy. Although the etiology of Behcets disease is unknown, evidence suggests that an interleukin-2 receptor bearing auto-aggressive cells may play an important role in this disorder. Zenapax, a humanized anti-TAC (T-cell activated antigen) monoclonal antibody (HAT), has been utilized in Protocol # 96-EI-0096, a pilot Phase I/II study, to evaluate Zenapax administration in the treatment of patients with endogenous sight-threatening uveitis. Long-term results demonstrate a positive therapeutic trend in this trial. We propose a randomized masked pilot trial of Zenapax versus placebo. Twenty patients who are 18 years of age or older with Behcets disease ...

A 27 year old Caucasian receptionist presented with severe oropharyngeal and genital ulceration, and a pustular rash on the neck, back, and upper limbs in April 1999. She was a non-smoker with no family history of inflammatory bowel disease. Three months later she developed abdominal pain, bloody diarrhoea, 15 kg weight loss, and ankle synovitis. Her C reactive protein (CRP) was 72 mg/l; autoantibodies (including dsDNA) were negative. Barium follow through was normal. Colonoscopy revealed serpiginous and aphthoid ulceration in the hepatic flexure, descending, and sigmoid colon. The rectum was normal. Biopsy of a deeply ulcerated area at the hepatic flexure was reported as possible Crohns disease without granulomata. In view of the pustular rash and severe orogenital ulceration however a diagnosis of Behçets was made and she was treated with prednisolone 40 mg daily with modest improvement. Her weight remained unchanged (49 kg, body mass index (BMI) 17 kg/m2) and her CRP decreased to 45 ...

Behcets disease (BD) is a widespread occlusive-type vasculitis with life-threatening manifestations. The vasculopathy of BD is unique and any type of vessel can be involved. Moreover, vascular lesions in BD represent an occlusive nature suggesting a hypercoagulable/prothrombotic state. The data concerning the genetic defects of the coagulation cascade are expanding. There is evidence of universal activation of haemostatic system in BD. Procoagulant markers of thrombosis are elevated reflecting intravenous excessive thrombin formation. Defective fibrinolysis with impaired fibrinolytic kinetics may have a role in the hypercoagulable/prothrombotic state of BD. Endothelial cell injury and/or pathological activation is well documented in BD. The aim of this paper is to review current literature knowledge and our experience regarding the unresolved complicated issues of genetic thrombotic defects, in vivo haemostatic markers, coagulation inhibitors, impaired fibrinolysis, and endothelial ...
This study investigated anti-TNF alpha agents (infliximab and adalimumab) in patients with severe and/or refractory Behcets disease.
Behcets Disease is common in the Middle East, Asia, and Japan. It is rare in the United States. In Middle Eastern and Asian countries, the disease affects more men than women. In the United States, it affects more women than men. Behcets Disease tends to develop in people in their 20s or 30s, but people of all ages can develop this disease. Behcets Disease is an autoimmune disease that results from damage to blood vessels throughout the body, particularly veins. In an autoimmune disease, the immune system attacks and harms the bodies own tissues.. The exact cause of Behcets Disease is unknown. Most symptoms of the disease are caused by vasculitis (an inflammation of the blood vessels). Inflammation is a characteristic reaction of the body to injury or disease and is marked by four signs: swelling, redness, heat, and pain. Doctors think that an autoimmune reaction may cause the blood vessels to become inflamed, but they do not know what triggers this reaction. Under normal conditions, the ...

In the present study, multi‑slice CT results of patients with Behçets disease (BD) and vascular complications were retrospectively evaluated. From January 2016 to May 2018, 45 of 361 patients with BD were diagnosed with vascular involvement. The clinical background, laboratory parameters and response to therapy of those patients were assessed. The following characteristics of vascular aneurysms were analyzed: Maximum diameter, length, wall thickness, borders, luminal changes, mural thrombus, cystic change of the vessel walls, asymmetric bulging of the right part of the aortic wall (RP type) and calcific plaques. The 45 BD patients analyzed included 37 males and 8 females with a median age of 40 years (30‑49 years). Significant differences were observed among genders regarding age, ocular disorders and digestive‑tract ulceration. A total of 42 aneurysms were identified with a mean diameter of 43 mm. Most aneurysmal walls (88%) were homogeneously enhanced on contrast‑enhanced CT. ...

It s the prime time of year for the first wave of pests to come visiting. Spring brings longer days, warmer temperatures and explosive growth on your favorite plants. Those same conditions are perfect for many insects to go from their overwintering, dormant state to their active stages. If you ve got bad bugs on or around your roses, it s a good bet that they re suckers, pests that feed by poking a hole in tissue and drawing out the plant fluid, or rasping (scraping away plant tissue) and sucking. These are the bad actors in the garden - not only do they cause direct damage to tender foliage and delicate blossoms, but as they suck out plant sap, many pump out a sweet, sticky substance called honeydew that collects on leaves and stems. That sugary substance attracts ants, and supports the growth of sooty mold, a black fungus, rendering it rather ugly and reducing photosynthesis. And to add insult to injury, the sucking insects sometimes transmit disease to roses in the process of feeding.. The ...

Pathergy is a skin condition in which a minor trauma such as a bump or bruise leads to the development of skin lesions or ulcers that may be resistant to healing. Pathergy can also lead to ulcerations at the site of surgical incisions. Pathergy was seen with both Behçets disease and pyoderma gangrenosum. A highly similar phenomenon known as the Koebner phenomenon occurs in autoimmune diseases such as psoriasis and systemic lupus erythematosus, among others. Doctors looking toward a diagnosis of Behçets disease may attempt to induce a pathergy reaction with a test known as a Skin Prick Test. The inflammation and ulceration that occurs as a result of pathergy in pyoderma gangrenosum often responds to systemic steroid therapy. The pathergy reaction is a unique feature of Behçets disease and, according to the International Study Group for Behcets Disease, is among the major criteria required for the diagnosis. Different positive pathergy reaction rates in BD have been reported worldwide. ...
Behcet's syndrome is a systemic inflammatory disease associated with vasculitis, and arterial, venous and cardiac disorders. Thirty-eight Behcet's disease patients were examined prospectively with echocardiography, ultrasonography and computed tomography, and coagulation parameters were determined. Deep venous insufficiency was found in 16 patients, venous thrombosis in seven, one patient had iliac artery stenosis, three had carotid arterial intimal proliferation, two patients had aortic annulus dilatation, six had aortic valve insufficiency, and three had mitral valve insufficiency. None had coagulation defects. To decrease morbidity and mortality rates, a multidisciplinary approach is important for early diagnosis of cardiovascular involvement in Behcet's disease.
Behcets disease (BD) is a multisystemic disorder, which is characterized by recurrent oral aphthous ulcers, genital ulcers, uveitis, and skin lesion. Although intestinal involvement is an uncommon manifestation of the BD, it leads to a poor prognosis, as a result of a high complication, such as intestinal perforation, fistula formation, and massive hemorrhage. Intestinal BD has the tendency for the resistance to conventional medical treatment, and it often requires a surgical intervention because of severe complication. Although the causes of intestinal BD are unknown, some studies show that tumor necrosis factor Alpha (TNF-alpha) plays a key role in the pathogenesis of BD. Therefore, anti-TNF-alpha monoclonal antibody, such as adalimumab, is one of the useful treatment for refractory and relapsed intestinal BD. We describe a patient who had intestinal BD complicated enterocutanous fistula with a good response to adalimumab ...

Behçets syndrome is an inflammatory disorder of unknown aetiology that involves arteries and veins of all sizes. Most cases are from the countries around the Mediterranean basin, the Middle East and east Asia, with the highest prevalence in Turkey.Clinical features-the disease typically presents in the second and third decades with recurrent oral ulcers (98% of cases), genital ulcers (85%), acneiform lesions (85%), pathergy reaction (60% in some countries), erythema nodosum (50%), uveitis (50%), arthritis (50%), thrombophlebitis (30%), and less commonly with arterial occlusion/aneurysm, central nervous system involvement or gastrointestinal lesions. A relapsing/remitting course is usual. Disease is more severe and mortality is higher in men. The diagnosis is clinical, laboratory findings are nonspecific and there is no specific diagnostic test for Behçets syndrome....
Author: Kimberly N. Powell, DDS, MS Aphthous mouth ulcers, known commonly as canker sores, can be very uncomfortable. Daily routines like eating, drinking, oral hygiene methods can cause pain.

Canker sores are common in adults and children, and generally tend to cause discomfort, particularly during eating. Although several factors have been named as possible causes of aphthous ulcers, trauma is the most common trigger for them. It has also been observed that they appear in patients who are under stress, or those experiencing health problems. They have also been attributed to hormonal changes, and to some types of dietary deficiencies (ie, Vitamin B12, Iron, Folic Acid, etc.). Although there is no specific treatment for the ulcer itself, except for severe cases (where usually steroids are prescribed); treatment is usually focused on the pain caused by the ulceration. ...
Aphthous ulcers are more commonly known as canker sores. These are small painful ulcers that typically cause bad breath and craters in the mouth but should not be confused as being a form of cancer. They are most often found under the tongue or on the inside lining of the cheeks or lips. Usually they heal within two weeks and they dont normally leave a permanent mark or scar. They are identified by their red tip but are mostly white or yellow. Twenty percent of people experience these at some point in time.. There are three main categories of these ulcers - minor, major and herpetiform. The first type is found on the soft palate and the floor of the mouth and they are generally small and rather shallow. The second type is larger and deeper than the minor while the herpetiform are more intense are appear in larger numbers than the others. Individuals who experience the last form should be tested for HIV because this condition is a main cause of herpetiform ulcers.. These sores are more commonly ...

The aim of this paper is to review the effects of negative childhood experiences on the development and course of bipolar disorder (BD) and to discuss the involved mechanisms. The negative childhood experiences that may play a role in BD are critical or traumatic events including all kinds of abuse, loss of a parent or parents resulting from death, suicide, separation, divorce or prolonged separation. Previous studies indicate that in BD patients negative childhood events are more frequent than in control group. In BD patients these events are associated with an earlier onset and more severe course of the illness, including more frequent relapses, suicidal behavior, substance abuse and somatic diseases. This paper presents the possibility of the specific impact of individual events on the clinical outcome of BD. Mechanisms explaining the impact of negative childhood events on the development and course of BD include the interaction between biological predisposition and stress factors, the ...

An oral ulcer, or an ulcer in the mouth, is a painful lesion as a result of a complete break in the epithelium of mucous membrane. The body responds to this localized defect by producing fibrins, which fills and overflows in the crater formed by the break in mucous membrane, giving it a bubble-like protrusion from the rest of the mucosa. The presence of fibrin gives it the yellowish colour which could easily be mistaken as pus. Continue reading →. ...
Purpose : As there is no diagnostic test for Behçets Disease (BD), multidisciplinary assessment remains the gold standard for diagnosis. Nevertheless the 1990 International Study Group (ISG) clinical classification criteria are widely adopted. In 2014 a team from 27 countries described the New International Criteria for Behçets Disease (ICBD). The ICBD appeared discriminatory with a higher specificity for BD compared with the ISG criteria regardless of country and thought easy to use in a wide variety of settings. The major difference between criteria is that only oro-genital ulceration is required to make a diagnosis of BD using the new ICBD criteria. We wished to assess the potential impact of the proposed new ICBD criteria for BD in a UK setting. Methods : Patients attending the Birmingham Behçet Syndrome National Centre of Excellence were diagnosed according to multidisciplinary clinical assessment and using the ISG 1990 and the proposed 2014 ICBD criteria. Patient demographics, ...

BACKGROUND: Transforming growth factor β (TGFβ) is an important immunoregulatory cytokine in regulatory T cell (Treg) and Th17-mediated pathology, including uveitis due to Behçets disease (BD). Of the three isoforms, TGFβ2 is found at highest levels in the aqueous humour of uninflamed eyes. TGFβ signals through a cell-surface receptor comprising three subunits (TGFBR1, 2 and 3). TGFBR3 is considered necessary for TGFβ2 signal transduction, but not for other isoforms. A polymorphism in TGFBR3 (rs1805110) has previously been identified in Han Chinese patients with BD. We investigated the frequency of this polymorphism in a Caucasian population with BD and idiopathic intermediate uveitis (IIU).. METHODS: The single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs1805110 in TGFBR3 was genotyped in 75 BD patients, 92 IIU disease controls and 85 disease-free controls. The association with both diseases was analysed using Fishers exact test.. RESULTS: No significant difference in rs1805110 allele or genotype ...
In the most recent case, the infant was the term product of a full-term pregnancy and normal vaginal delivery. He had ritual Jewish circumcision including direct orogenital suction on day of life 8. On day of life 13, at a well-child visit, a rash was noted on and around genitals. The baby was treated with topical antibacterial ointment. On day of life 16, the baby returned to his provider for worsening rash, and a topical anti-fungal was added to the regimen. On day of life 18, lesions progressed to include the perineum and the right foot. HSV infection was suspected, and the infant was referred to a pediatric dermatologist. The next day, upon evaluation of the baby, the dermatologist, also suspecting HSV, collected specimens for direct visualization and for viral culture, and the baby was admitted to a hospital for treatment. The location of herpes lesions (on the genitals and on the foot, a dermatomal distribution reflecting involvement of sacral nerves), viral type (HSV type 1, which is ...
Results Thirty BD patients (15 female, 15 male) with a median age of 39,7±8,23 years were investigated in our study.
