C1-Esterase inhibitor: an anti-inflammatory agent and its potential use in the treatment of diseases other than hereditary angioedema. (1/83)

C1-esterase inhibitor (C1-Inh) therapy was introduced in clinical medicine about 25 years ago as a replacement therapy for patients with hereditary angioedema caused by a deficiency of C1-Inh. There is now accumulating evidence, obtained from studies in animals and observations in patients, that administration of C1-Inh may have a beneficial effect as well in other clinical conditions such as sepsis, cytokine-induced vascular leak syndrome, acute myocardial infarction, or other diseases. Activation of the complement system, the contact activation system, and the coagulation system has been observed in these diseases. A typical feature of the contact and complement system is that on activation they give rise to vasoactive peptides such as bradykinin or the anaphylatoxins, which in part explains the proinflammatory effects of either system. C1-Inh, belonging to the superfamily of serine proteinase inhibitors (serpins), is a major inhibitor of the classical complement pathway, the contact activation system, and the intrinsic pathway of coagulation, respectively. It is, therefore, endowed with anti-inflammatory properties. However, inactivation of C1-Inh occurs locally in inflamed tissues by proteolytic enzymes (e.g., elastase) released from activated neutrophils or bacteria thereby leading to increased local activation of the various host defense systems. Here we will give an overview on the biochemistry and biology of C1-Inh. We will discuss studies addressing therapeutic administration of C1-Inh in experimental and clinical conditions. Finally, we will provide an explanation for the therapeutic benefit of C1-Inh in so many different diseases.  (+info)

C1 inhibitor cross-linking by tissue transglutaminase. (2/83)

C1 inhibitor, a plasma proteinase inhibitor of the serpin superfamily involved in the regulation of complement classical pathway and intrinsic blood coagulation, has been shown to bind to several components of the extracellular matrix. These reactions may be responsible for C1 inhibitor localization in the perivascular space. In the study reported here, we have examined whether C1 inhibitor could function as a substrate for plasma (factor XIIIa) or tissue transglutaminase. We made the following observations: 1) SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and autoradiography showed that C1 inhibitor exposed to tissue transglutaminase (but not to factor XIIIa) incorporated the radioactive amine donor substrate [(3)H]putrescine in a calcium-dependent manner; 2) the maximum stoichiometry for the uptake of [(3)H]putrescine by C1 inhibitor was 1:1; 3) proteolytic cleavage and peptide sequencing of reduced and carboxymethylated [(3)H]putrescine-C1 inhibitor identified Gln(453) (P'9) as the single amine acceptor residue; 4) studies with (125)I-labeled C1 inhibitor showed that tissue transglutaminase was also able to cross-link C1 inhibitor to immobilized fibrin; and 5) C1 inhibitor cross-linked by tissue transglutaminase to immobilized fibrin had inhibitory activity against its target enzymes. Thus, tissue transglutaminase-mediated cross-linking of C1 inhibitor to fibrin or other extracellular matrix components may serve as a mechanism for covalent serpin binding and influence local regulation of the proteolytic pathways inhibited by C1 inhibitor.  (+info)

SERPIN regulation of factor XIa. The novel observation that protease nexin 1 in the presence of heparin is a more potent inhibitor of factor XIa than C1 inhibitor. (3/83)

In the present studies we have made the novel observation that protease nexin 1 (PN1), a member of the serine protease inhibitor (SERPIN) superfamily, is a potent inhibitor of the blood coagulation Factor XIa (FXIa). The inhibitory complexes formed between PN1 and FXIa are stable when subjected to reducing agents, SDS, and boiling, a characteristic of the acyl linkage formed between SERPINs and their cognate proteases. Using a sensitive fluorescence-quenched peptide substrate, the K(assoc) of PN1 for FXIa was determined to be 7.9 x 10(4) m(-)(1) s(-)(1) in the absence of heparin. In the presence of heparin, this rate was accelerated to 1.7 x 10(6), M(-)(1) s(-)(1), making PN1 a far better inhibitor of FXIa than C1 inhibitor, which is the only other SERPIN known to significantly inhibit FXIa. FXIa-PN1 complexes are shown to be internalized and degraded by human fibroblasts, most likely via the low density lipoprotein receptor-related protein (LRP), since degradation was strongly inhibited by the LRP agonist, receptor-associated protein. Since FXIa proteolytically modifies the amyloid precursor protein, this observation may suggest an accessory role for PN1 in the pathobiogenesis of Alzheimer's disease.  (+info)

The native metastable fold of C1-inhibitor is stabilized by disulfide bonds. (4/83)

C1-inhibitor is a member of the serpin family of proteinase inhibitors and is an important inhibitor of complement and contact system proteinases. The native protein has the characteristic serpin feature of being in a kinetically trapped metastable state rather than in the most stable state it could adopt. A consequence of this is that it readily forms loop-sheet dimers and polymers, by a mechanism believed to be the same as observed with other serpins. An unusual feature of C1-inhibitor is that it has a unique amino-terminal domain, of unknown function, held to the serpin domain by two disulfide bonds not found in other serpins. We report here that reduction of these bonds by DTT, causes a conformational change such that the reactive center loop inserts into beta-sheet A. This form of C1-inhibitor is less stable to heat and urea than the native protein, and is more susceptible to extensive degradation by trypsin. These data show that the disulfide bonds in C1-inhibitor are required for the protein to be stabilized in the metastable state with the reactive center loop expelled from beta-sheet A.  (+info)

Hereditary angioedema with a de novo mutation of exon 8 in the C1 inhibitor gene showing recurrent edema of the hands around the peripheral joints: importance for the differential diagnosis of joint swelling. (5/83)

We describe a patient with hereditary angioedema (HAE), showing recurrent edema around the peripheral joints. Her symptoms began at the age of 18 with hand swelling distal to the wrist joints. Until she was referred to our hospital 3 years after her initial symptoms, she was still undiagnosed, although she was suspected of having rheumatoid arthritis. Laboratory examination showed reduced levels of CH50 and C4 with normal C3 levels. The C1 inhibitor (C1-INH) was decreased to 5 mg/ml, with remarkably reduced activity. Although these findings were compatible with a diagnosis of HAE, there were no episodes of skin edema in her family. To establish the diagnosis, we carried out DNA analysis of the C1-INH gene, which revealed a newly identified de novo mutation of G to A at nucleotide 16869 in exon 8. As described in this patient, localized edema around the peripheral joints may be the only manifestation of HAE. HAE should therefore be taken into consideration for the differential diagnosis of joint swelling.  (+info)

Complement components, but not complement inhibitors, are upregulated in atherosclerotic plaques. (6/83)

Complement activation occurs in atherosclerotic plaques. The capacity of arterial tissue to inhibit this activation through generation of the complement regulators C1 inhibitor, decay accelerating factor, membrane cofactor protein (CD46), C4 binding protein (C4BP), and protectin (CD59) was evaluated in pairs of aortic atherosclerotic plaques and nearby normal artery from 11 human postmortem specimens. All 22 samples produced mRNAs for each of these proteins. The ratios of plaque versus normal artery pairs was not significantly different from unity for any of these inhibitors. However, in plaques, the mRNAs for C1r and C1s, the substrates for the C1 inhibitor, were increased 2.35- and 4.96-fold, respectively, compared with normal artery; mRNA for C4, the target for C4BP, was elevated l.34-fold; and mRNAs for C7 and C8, the targets for CD59, were elevated 2.61- and 3.25-fold, respectively. By Western blotting and immunohistochemistry, fraction Bb of factor B, a marker of alternative pathway activation, was barely detectable in plaque and normal arterial tissue. These data indicate that it is primarily the classical, not the alternative pathway, that is activated in plaques and that key inhibitors are not upregulated to defend against this activation.  (+info)

A new type of acquired C1 inhibitor deficiency associated with systemic lupus erythematosus. (7/83)

Acquired C1 inhibitor (C1-INH) deficiency with consequent angioedema is a rare condition that may indicate an underlying lymphoproliferative disorder. The defect is caused by increased catabolism, which is often associated with the presence of serum autoantibodies to C1-INH. The present report describes 3 patients with systemic lupus erythematosus who developed typical symptoms of acquired angioedema, characterized by recurrent swelling of subcutaneous and mucous tissues. The 3 patients demonstrated a major classical pathway-mediated complement consumption, with very low levels of C3 antigen and decreased levels of C1-INH antigen. Neither antibodies to C1-INH nor associated lymphoproliferative disease was found. No patient had clinical and biologic signs of lupus activity at the time the angioedema occurred. All patients were treated with steroids and exhibited a good response, without relapse of angioedema and with normalization of plasma levels of C1-INH. In lupus patients who present with an angioedema syndrome, acquired or hereditary angioedema must be sought by examining parameters of the classical pathway and levels of C1-INH. Our observations suggest the existence of a new form of acquired C1-INH deficiency associated with a major classical pathway-mediated complement consumption and systemic autoimmunity.  (+info)

In vivo biosynthesis of endogenous and of human C1 inhibitor in transgenic mice: tissue distribution and colocalization of their expression. (8/83)

We have produced transgenic mice expressing human C1 inhibitor mRNA and protein under the control of the human promoter and regulatory elements. The transgene was generated using a minigene construct in which most of the human C1 inhibitor gene (C1NH) was replaced by C1 inhibitor cDNA. The construct retained the promoter region extending 1.18 kb upstream of the transcription start site, introns 1 and 2 as well as a stretch of 2.5 kb downstream of the polyadenylation site, and therefore carried all known elements involved in transcriptional regulation of the C1NH gene. Mice with high serum levels of human C1 inhibitor, resulting from multiple tandem integrations of the C1 inhibitor transgene, were selected. Immunohistochemistry in combination with in situ hybridization was applied to localize the sites of C1 inhibitor biosynthesis and to demonstrate its local production in brain, spleen, liver, heart, kidney, and lung. The distribution of human C1 inhibitor-expressing cells was qualitatively indistinguishable from that of its mouse counterpart, but expression levels of the transgene were significantly higher. In the spleen, production of C1 inhibitor was colocalized with that of a specific marker for white pulp follicular dendritic cells. This study demonstrates a stringently regulated expression of both the endogenous and the transgenic human C1 inhibitor gene and reveals local biosynthesis of C1 inhibitor at multiple sites in which the components of the macromolecular C1 complex are also produced.  (+info)

Patients with hereditary angioedema (HAE), suffer from recurring and mostly unforeseeable attacks of acute oedema of subcutaneous tissues of various organs. The pathophysiological correlate of this disease is a deficiency in functionally active C1-Esterase Inhibitor (C1-INH). Today, two main types of HAE are described. In HAE type I, an impaired synthesis and an elevated turnover of a normal and functional active C1-INH molecule takes place, causing reduced amounts in functionally active C1-INH. In HAE type II, normal levels of a functionally impaired C1-INH molecule are synthesized. Both defects are inherited as an autosomal dominant trait. HAE type III is limited to females and not associated with C1-INH deficiency; the pathophysiology of this type remains to be determined. Corticosteroids, antihistamines or epinephrine usually do not exert any positive effect in acute attacks caused by HAE. This is of particular importance as these types of medication are often used in case of oedema in ...

BACKGROUND: The plasma-derived, pasteurized C1-inhibitor (C1-INH) concentrate, Berinert has a 4-decade history of use in hereditary angioedema (HAE), with a substantial literature base that demonstrates safety and efficacy. Thromboembolic events have rarely been reported with C1-INH products, typically with off-label use or at supratherapeutic doses. OBJECTIVES: Active surveillance of safety and clinical usage patterns of pasteurized C1-inhibitor concentrate and the more recent pasteurized, nanofiltered C1-INH, with a particular interest in thromboembolic events. METHODS: A registry was initiated in April 2010 at 27 US and 4 EU sites to obtain both prospective and retrospective safety and usage data on subjects who were administered C1-INH (Berinert). RESULTS: As of May 10, 2013, data were available for 135 subjects and 3196 infusions. By subject, 67.4% were using C1-INH as on-demand therapy and 23.0% as both on-demand therapy and prophylactic administration. Approximately half of the infusions ...

the complement systems part, a protein group involved in some allergic and immune reactions. C1 inhibitors abnormal activity or deficiency results in swelling in skins local area and the tissues beneath it, or in the mucous membrane that is the lining body opening including gastrointestinal tract, throat, and the mouth.. Viral infections or injury frequently precipitates the attack, that may be caused by emotional distress. Attacks usually produce swelling areas, that are achy rather than itchy and are not accompanied by hives. Many individuals with Hereditary Angioedema have cramps, vomiting and nausea. The most severe complications include the upper airways swelling, which may affect breathing. Blood tests that measure activity or levels of C1 inhibitor, confirm diagnosis.. The treatment consists of medication called Aminocaprotic acid, which sometimes ends hereditary angioedema attacks. Corticosteroids, antihistamines, and epinephrine are frequently prescribed; although there is no proof ...

Hereditary angioedema (HAE) due to C1 esterase inhibitor (C1-INH) deficiency (HAE-C1-INH) is a rare but medically significant disease that can be associated with considerable morbidity and mortality. Research into the pathogenesis of HAE-C1-INH has expanded greatly in the last six decades and has led to new clinical trials with novel therapeutic agents and treatment strategies. Mechanisms of pharmacotherapy include (a) supplementing C1-INH, the missing serine-protease inhibitor in HAE; (b) inhibiting the activation of the contact system and the uncontrolled release of proteases in the kallikrein-kinin system, by blocking the production/function of its components; (c) inhibiting the fibrinolytic system by blocking the production/function of its components; and (d) inhibiting the function of bradykinin at the endothelial level ...

Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare disease, little known to the medical and dental community, but with a growing rate of hospitalization over the years. HAE is due to a deficit/dysfunction of C1 esterase inhibitor which leads to an increase in vascular permeability and the appearance of edemas widespread in all body areas. The airways are the most affected and laryngeal swelling, which can occur, it is dangerous for the patients life, is also a sensitive spot in our daily practice, therefore, it is also important to be aware of all the signs of this disease. Episodes of HAE have no obvious cause, but it can be triggered by anxiety, invasive procedures and trauma. So this disease is a major problem in oral and maxillofacial surgery, ENT, endoscopy, emergency medicine and anesthesia because even simple procedures can cause laryngeal edema. The recommendations on the management of HAE include long- and short-term prophylaxis and treatment for acute attacks, however, the importance of anxiety control
Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is caused by a deficiency in C1 esterase inhibitor and is characterized by sudden attacks of edema associated with discomfort and pain. The disease places patients at risk for disability and death if left untreated. Sympto
Agents for prophylaxis of hereditary angioedema (HAE) have been available in the United States for several decades, but their usefulness is limited by side effects and they cannot be used at all in some patients. No agents have been available in the United States to specifically treat acute attacks. HAE types I and II are associated with low functional levels of C1 inhibitor, and evidence accumulated over decades suggests that intravenous infusion of C1 inhibitor is useful for terminating angioedema attacks and for prophylaxis. C1 inhibitor derived from pooled human plasma has been available for decades in Europe, and 2 preparations have been recently introduced into the United States. Both have been efficacious in carefully controlled double-blind studies. One preparation, Cinryze, was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for prophylaxis of HAE attacks in October 2008, and the second, Berinert, was approved by the FDA for treatment of acute attacks in October 2009. A third preparation,
Although rare, hereditary angioedema (HAE) is associated with episodic attacks of edema formation that can have catastrophic consequences.

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

Given her fathers premature death, Angelas doctor suspects that she has hereditary angioedema, a genetic disorder that compromises the function of C1 inhibitor protein. Patients with this genetic abnormality may have occasional episodes of swelling in various parts of the body. In Angelas case, the swelling has occurred in the respiratory tract, leading to difficulty breathing. Swelling may also occur in the gastrointestinal tract, causing abdominal cramping, diarrhea, and vomiting, or in the muscles of the face or limbs. This swelling may be nonresponsive to steroid treatment and is often misdiagnosed as an allergy.. Because there are three types of hereditary angioedema, the doctor orders a more specific blood test to look for levels of C1-INH, as well as a functional assay of Angelas C1 inhibitors. The results suggest that Angela has type I hereditary angioedema, which accounts for 80%-85% of all cases. This form of the disorder is caused by a deficiency in C1 esterase inhibitors, the ...
Angioedema can be divided into hereditary angioedema (HAE) and acquired angioedema. HAE is extremely rare, affecting in the range of 1:30,000 to 1 in 80,000 people.4,5 It develops due to a C1 esterase inhibitor deficiency, which is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern with almost complete penetrance.5 This deficiency results in an abnormal increase in the activation of C1 and subsequent excessive formation of the enzyme kallikrein. The excess kallikrein transforms kininogen into kinins, including bradykinin. Bradykinin, the primary biologic mediator of angioedema,5 is highly vasoactive and produces the characteristic tissue swelling seen in angioedema.4 HAE is commonly precipitated by trauma and emotional stress. Frequently, the trauma is considered to be minor and can be as innocuous as prolonged sitting on a hard surface or clapping of the hands. Dental and surgical trauma are well-recognized precipitators of an acute attack.5 ...
Subjects were to assess their symptoms every 15 minutes up to 4 hours after the initial dose or until substantial relief of the defining symptom was achieved. The conservative analysis defined substantial relief as 3 consecutive assessments of improvement of the defining symptom; any attack that did not have 3 consecutive documented reports of improvement was considered a treatment failure. In the less conservative analysis, attacks also were considered to have responded if clinical improvement of the defining symptom occurred but data were incomplete due to cessation of symptom assessments ...

Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is an inherited disorder caused by a specific mutation in the affected persons genetic code. The gene in question is located on chromosome 11 and is responsible for the production of an enzyme known as C1-esterase inhibitor (C1-INH). C1-INH is an important protein that regulates a variety of metabolic processes in the body. As a result of the underlying genetic mutation, persons suffering from HAE either produce too little C1-INH or a type of C1-INH that does not function properly. One of the effects of C1-INH is to prevent an excessive production of bradykinin in response to inflammation, coagulation reactions and other processes in the body. Bradykinin acts to increase the permeability of the blood vessel walls ...
