Strains of mice in which certain GENES of their GENOMES have been disrupted, or "knocked-out". To produce knockouts, using RECOMBINANT DNA technology, the normal DNA sequence of the gene being studied is altered to prevent synthesis of a normal gene product. Cloned cells in which this DNA alteration is successful are then injected into mouse EMBRYOS to produce chimeric mice. The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene. Knockout mice are used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS for diseases (DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL) and to clarify the functions of the genes.

The inherited autoinflammatory syndrome: a decade of discovery. (1/51)

The hereditary autoinflammatory diseases arise from mutations of genes regulating the innate immune system. These rare disorders are well characterized, both clinically and in terms of their molecular pathogenesis. The recurrent attacks of febrile polyserositis of Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) are due to defective pyrin, a protein that down-regulates inflammation. The Hyperimmunoglobulinemia D Syndrome (HIDS), which mimics FMF, results from a genetically conferred deficiency of mevalonate kinase. TRAPS (TNF Receptor Associated Periodic Syndrome), formerly known as Familial Hibernian Fever, is caused by a defective membrane receptor for TNF. Three other hereditary disorders which overlap in their clinical expression - Familial Cold Autoinflammatory Syndrome, the Muckle Wells syndrome, and Neonatal Onset Multisystem Inflamatory Disease (NOMID) - are a consequence of gain-of-function mutations of the gene encoding cryopyrin, the scaffolding protein of the inflammasome. The PAPA syndrome (Pyogenic Arthritis, Pyoderma gangrenosum, Acne) results from mutations of a gene that increases the binding of its product (PSPSTPIP1) to pyrin, thereby blunting the inhibitory effect of pyrin on inflammasome activation.  (+info)

Canakinumab. (4/51)

Canakinumab (ACZ885, Ilaris) is a human anti-IL-1beta monoclonal antibody developed by Novartis. Its mode of action is based on the neutralization of IL-1beta signaling, resulting in suppression of inflammation in patients with disorders of autoimmune origin. In June 2009 the drug was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of familial cold auto-inflammatory syndrome and Muckle-Wells syndrome, which are inflammatory diseases related to cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes. The drug is currently being evaluated for its potential in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, systemic-onset juvenile idiopathic arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, type 1 and 2 diabetes and ocular diseases. Reports from clinical trials suggest that canakinumab is well-tolerated in most patients, and no serious adverse effects have been reported. The drug provides significant advantages over existing competitive therapies, including bimonthly administration and approved use in children.  (+info)

What is cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes? Meaning of cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes medical term. What does cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes mean?
Cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome (CAPS) is a group of rare, heterogeneous autoinflammatory disease characterized by interleukin 1β-mediated systemic inflammation and clinical symptoms involving skin, joints, central nervous system, and eyes. It encompasses a spectrum of three clinically overlapping autoinflammatory syndromes including familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome (FCAS, formerly termed familial cold-induced urticaria), the Muckle-Wells syndrome (MWS), and neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID, also called chronic infantile neurologic cutaneous and articular syndrome or CINCA) that were originally thought to be distinct entities, but in fact share a single genetic mutation and pathogenic pathway. The syndromes within CAPS overlap clinically, and patients may have features of more than one disorder. In a retrospective cohort of 136 CAPS patients from 16 countries, the most prevalent clinical features were fever (84% of cases, often with concurrent constitutional ...
Neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (abbreviated NOMID, also known as chronic infantile neurologic cutaneous and articular syndrome, or CINCA) is a rare genetic periodic fever syndrome which causes uncontrolled inflammation in multiple parts of the body starting in the newborn period. Symptoms include skin rashes, severe arthritis, and chronic meningitis leading to neurologic damage. It is one of the cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes. NOMID can result from a mutation in the CIAS1 gene (also known as NLRP3 gene), which helps control inflammation. Mutations in this gene also cause familial cold urticaria and Muckle-Wells syndrome. NOMID has been successfully treated with the drug anakinra. This syndrome is also known as the Prieur-Griscelli syndrome as it was first described by these authors in 1981. The age of onset is almost always before 3 months of age. Many infants are born preterm (1/3 cases) and dysmature. The babies are frequently small for dates. The placenta may be ...

To date there are no approved effective therapies for the treatment of cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS) including Familial Cold Autoinflammatory Syndrome (FCAS), Muckle-Wells Syndrome (MWS), or Neonatal Onset Multisystem Inflammatory Disease (NOMID) in Japan.. The study will assess the efficacy and safety of canakinumab in Japanese patients with cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS). In previous and currently ongoing CAPS studies (CACZ885A2102, CACZ885D2201, CACZ885D2304, CACZ885D2306), it has been observed that treatment with canakinumab in patients with CAPS contributed to ensure absence of relapse, to improve signs and symptoms and to prevent secondary disease complications. However, no Japanese patients have been included in those studies. This study will allow access for Japanese patients to a new potentially efficacious treatment for CAPS patients with a convenient dosing regimen. ...
Introduction. Muckle-Wells syndrome is a rare hereditary disease with an autosomal dominant transmission pattern. It is caused by the mutation of the NLRP3 gene (also referred to as CIAS1), which encodes cryopyrin, a protein responsible for the regulation of the production of inflammatory cytokines, mainly interleukin (IL)-1β, which leads to a persistent and uncontrollable systemic inflammation.1 There are 3 types of cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS) of increasing severity: familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome, Muckle-wells syndrome and chronic infantile neurologic, cutaneous, articular (CINCA) syndrome and neonatal onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID).. There are no clearly defined diagnostic criteria but, according to the medical literature, its diagnosis is based on 3 findings. In the first place, the clinical onset begins with episodes characterized by fever, rash and/or urticaria and arthralgia and/or arthritis associated with abdominal pain and previous ...
The cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome (CAPS) is an autosomal dominant autoinflammatory disease characterized by fever, skin rash, and joint involvement with acute inflammatory response. The genetic defect involves the NLRP3 gene that encodes cryopyrin and leads to an abnormal production of interleukin-1 (IL-1). Therefore, anti-IL-1 treatment represents an effective therapy. One of the most severe manifestations of the disease is secondary amyloidosis that causes renal failure. We present a patient with CAPS who underwent renal transplantation for renal insufficiency caused by amyloidosis. The function of the transplanted kidney deteriorated because of the late administration of IL-1 receptor antagonist, anakinra. This case may indicate the importance of early initiation of anti-IL-1 treatment in CAPS patients who have undergone kidney transplantation. ...
Autosomal dominant mutations in NLRP3 in humans leads to three autoinflammatory syndromes collectively referred to as cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS; also called cryopyrinopathies) (48, 49, 50, 51). Gain-of-function mutations of NLRP3 cause a lowered activation threshold that leads to IL-1β secretion even in the absence of a stimulus in vitro (36, 52, 53). All CAPS are characterized by increased levels of IL-1β in the absence of infection. CAPS consist of a spectrum of diseases ranging from the mild, such as familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome (FCAS), to the intermediate, such as Muckle-Wells syndrome (MWS), to the severe, such as chronic infantile neurological, cutaneous and articular (CINCA) syndrome, also known as neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID). All three syndromes present with fever, urticaria-like rash, and varying degrees of arthropathy and neurological manifestations (4, 54, 55, 56). FCAS consists of the mildest symptoms, including ...
The approval for Kineret was based on the results received from a Phase III open label and uncontrolled study. The study enrolled 43 NOMID patients who were aged between 0.7 and 46 years.. The patients were initially administered with Kineret dose of one to 2.4mg/kg body weight. The dose was adjusted by 0.5 to 1mg/kg increments, according to the specified protocol, up to a maximum of 10mg/kg daily. The maximum dose administered in the study was 7.6mg/kg/day. The average maintenance dose was three to 4mg/kg daily. Kineret was administered once-daily in some patients, and twice-daily in others.. The NOMID symptoms were measured using disease-specific Diary Symptom Sum Score (DSSS). The main disease symptoms were fever, rash, joint pain, vomiting and headache. The patients were treated for more than 60 months.. The results of the study were consistent in all subgroups. The improvements occurred in all individual disease symptoms comprising the DSSS. Common side effects found during the clinical ...
This study uses the IL-1 receptor antagonist anakinra to treat children and adults with Neonatal-Onset Multisystem Inflammatory Disease (NOMID), also known as chronic infantile neurological, cutaneous and arthropathy (CINCA) syndrome. NOMID/CINCA syndrome is a rare genetic systemic auto-inflammatory disease that is characterized by a triad of symptoms, including a persistent urticaria-like skin rash, an arthropathy associated with patellar and epiphyseal osseous overgrowth, and neurological manifestations, including chronic aseptic meningitis, optic disc edema, high frequency hearing loss, and mental retardation. Spontaneous genetic mutations in the NACHT domain of CIAS1, a gene located on chromosome 1 have been recently identified in about half of the patients with NOMID/CINCA syndrome. CIAS1 encodes a protein, cryopyrin that is associated with up-regulation of IL-1 production in vitro, which has formed the rationale to target the IL-1 pathway in children with NOMID. During an up to 3- week ...

Chronic infantile neurologic cutaneous and articular (CINCA) syndrome, also known as neonatal onset multisystem inflammatory disease, or NOMID, is a congenital inflammatory disorder characterized by a triad of neonatal onset of cutaneous symptoms (skin rash), chronic meningitis, and joint pain with recurrent fever and inflammation. CINCA is the most severe form of the cryopyrin associated periodic syndromes (CAPS) caused by mutations in the CIAS1/NLRP3 gene. About 50% of affected individuals have mutations in this gene. This condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion ...
Conclusions We herein show somatic NLRP3 mosaicism underlying MWS, probably representing a shared genetic mechanism in CAPS not restricted to CINCA syndrome. The data here described allowed definitive diagnoses of these patients, which had serious implications for gaining access to anti-interleukin 1 treatments under legal indication and for genetic counselling. The detection of somatic mosaicism is difficult when using conventional methods. Potential candidates should benefit from the use of modern genetic tools.. ...
Chronic infantile neurological cutaneous articular (CINCA) syndrome, also known as neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease, is a rare congenital inflammatory disease characterised by cardinal signs including a variable congenital maculopapular urticarial rash, chronic non-inflammatory arthropathy with abnormal cartilage proliferation, and chronic meningitis with progressive neurological impairment associated with polymorphonuclear and occasionally eosinophilic infiltration.1 The CINCA syndrome is associated with childhood uveitis and papillitis with chronic disc swelling.2 It may occur as a result of mutations of the CIAS1 gene that encodes cryopyrin, which results in reduced apoptosis of the inflammatory cells with up regulation of interleukin 1 (IL1).3-5 Consequently, the CINCA syndrome responds poorly to immunosuppressives including steroids, and treatment has been limited until recent reports of successful treatment with the recombinant human IL1 receptor antagonist (rHuIL1Ra), ...

The NLRP3 inflammasome is a protein complex responsible for caspase-1-dependent maturation of the proinflammatory cytokines IL-1β and IL-18. Gain-of-function missense mutations in NLRP3 cause the disease spectrum known as the cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS). In this study, we generated Nlrp3-knockin mice on various KO backgrounds including Il1b/Il18-, caspase-1-, caspase-11- (Casp1/11-), and Tnf-deficient strains. The Nlrp3L351P Il1b-/- Il18-/- mutant mice survived and grew normally until adulthood and, at 6 months of age, exhibited marked splenomegaly and leukophilia. Injection of these mice with low-dose LPS resulted in elevated serum TNF levels compared with Nlrp3L351P Casp1/11-/- mice and Il1b-/- Il18-/- littermates. Treatment of Nlrp3A350V mice with the TNF inhibitor etanercept resulted in all pups surviving to adulthood, with normal body and spleen/body weight ratios. Nlrp3A350V Tnf-/- mice showed a similar phenotypic rescue, with marked reductions in serum IL-1β and ...

Although IKK-β has previously been shown as a negative regulator of IL-1β secretion in mice, this role has not been demonstrated in humans. Genetic studies of NF-κB signalling in humans with inherited diseases of the immune system have not demonstrated the relevance of the NF-κB pathway in suppression of IL-1β expression. Here, we report an infant displaying clinical pathology comprising neutrophil-mediated auto-inflammation and recurrent bacterial infections. Whole-exome sequencing revealed a de novo heterozygous missense mutation in NFKBIA, resulting in a L34P IκBα variant, that severely repressed NF-κB activation and downstream cytokine production. Paradoxically, IL-1β secretion was elevated in the patients stimulated leukocytes, in her induced-pluripotent stem cell-derived macrophages, and in murine bone marrow-derived macrophages containing the L34P mutation. The patients hyper-IL-1β secretion correlated with activated neutrophilia and liver fibrosis with neutrophil ...

The NLRP3 inflammasome is a protein complex responsible for caspase-1-dependent maturation of the proinflammatory cytokines IL-1β and IL-18. Gain-of-function missense mutations in NLRP3 cause the disease spectrum known as the cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS). In this study, we generated Nlrp3-knockin mice on various KO backgrounds including Il1b/Il18-, caspase-1-, caspase-11- (Casp1/11-), and Tnf-deficient strains.

The idea is to do a quick update, once a week, about the week that came before. The idea isnt mine; its been a thing for more than a decade. Im not even the only person I know to do it: Don started something similar last year and Ive seen it help him get back into regular blog updates, something I need to do for myself.. I got into the habit of using social media, particularly Twitter and IG because while they both suck for passively allowing Nazis, incels, and President Tr*mp to say whatever to whoever, Facebook can outright go fuck itself for actively adding to the worlds problems. In the process, for reasons Ill get into another time, I mostly stopped using my personal website. But this space, in as much as anything digital can be owned, is definitely mine, while Twitter and IG and Fuck-Facebook and all the rest are, depending on the day, very likely not mine at all.. I mean, Ill still use them in a limited way to keep in touch with people I care about. Im not a monster.. But this is ...

Last week during our weekly physician conference, I discussed a patient with an autoinflammatory disease. An elderly male, he had a history of recurrent fevers, hives, and elevated inflammatory markers, which had gone untreated for many years. Eventually, he developed renal amyloidosis (accumulation of amyloid fibers in the kidney causing kidney failure), and was finally referred to rheumatology clinic for further evaluation. Although he had many of the classic signs and symptoms of an autoinflammatory disease, his physicians had not recognized it. Even at the conference, some physicians were unaware of these group of diseases.. Autoinflammatory diseases are a newly described set of illnesses that cause systemic inflammation due to problems in the innate immune system. The innate immune system includes several types of white blood cells such as neutrophils, macrophages, and natural killer cells. These cells are the first responders to an infection because any one of them is able to recognize ...
The importance of actin dynamics in the activation of the inflammasome is becoming increasingly apparent. IL-1β, which is activated by the inflammasome, is known to be central to the pathogenesis of many monogenic autoinflammatory diseases. However, evidence from an autoinflammatory murine model indicates that IL-18, the other cytokine triggered by inflammasome activity, is important in its own right. In this model, autoinflammation was caused by mutation in the actin regulatory gene WDR1 We report a homozygous missense mutation in WDR1 in two siblings causing periodic fevers with immunodeficiency and thrombocytopenia. We found impaired actin dynamics in patient immune cells. Patients had high serum levels of IL-18, without a corresponding increase in IL-18-binding protein or IL-1β, and their cells also secreted more IL-18 but not IL-1β in culture. We found increased caspase-1 cleavage within patient monocytes indicative of increased inflammasome activity. We transfected HEK293T cells with ...
As one of the systemic autoinflammatory diseases (SAIDs), the nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain-like receptor protein (NLRP)12 autoinflammatory disease (NLRP12-AD) is an autosomal dominant disorder associated with NLRP12 mutation. SAIDs have been hardly reported in the Chinese population, and NLRP12-AD has been reported only in Caucasians. We report the first case series of NLRP12-AD in the Chinese population coupled with literature review. Three Han Chinese adult patients with clinical phenotype suggestive of NLRP12-AD carrying NLRP12 variants were treated by the authors in 2015. Their phenotype and genotype were carefully studied. A PubMed search for SAIDs was conducted between January, 1990 and January, 2016, and we focused on NLRP12-AD. All three adult patients developed periodic disease in adulthood. They presented with recurrent fever (n = 3), polyarthralgia (n = 3), myalgia (n = 3), urticaria (n = 2), lymphadenopathy (n = 2), and erythema nodosa (n = 1). All patients carry the ...

Deficiency of interleukin-36 receptor antagonist (DITRA) is a life threatening monogenic autoinflammatory disease caused by loss of function mutations in the IL36RN gene. Affected patients develop recurrent episodes of generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP) with systemic inflammation and fever. We here review and analyze the literature on pediatric DITRA patients who have been treated by biologicals targeting inflammatory cytokines. A database research was performed to identify all relevant articles on pediatric DITRA patients treated with biologicals. According to defined response criteria therapeutic efficacy was analyzed. Our literature research revealed 12 pediatric patients with DITRA who have received treatment with biologicals and we add a further not yet reported patient. Out of these 13 patients 10 were homozygous including 6 with the p.Leu27Pro, 3 with the p.Arg10 Argfs* and 1 with the p.Thr123Met mutation. 3 patients were compound heterozygous. In total 28 flares were treated with biological

Spleen tyrosine kinase (Syk) is involved in the development of the adaptive immune system and has been recognized as being important in the function of additional cell types, including platelets, phagocytes, fibroblasts, and osteoclasts, and in the generation of the inflammasome. Preclinical studies presented compelling evidence that Syk inhibition may have therapeutic value in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and other forms of arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, autoimmune cytopenias, and allergic and autoinflammatory diseases. In addition, Syk inhibition may have a place in limiting tissue injury associated with organ transplant and revascularization procedures. Clinical trials have documented exciting success in the treatment of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune cytopenias, and allergic rhinitis. While the extent and severity of side effects appear to be limited so far, larger studies will unravel the risk involved with the clinical benefit.

Compared to placebo, canakinumab had modest but nonsignificant effects on glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c, glucose, and insulin levels. No effects were seen for low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), or non-HDL-C, although triglyceride levels increased approximately 10% in the 50 (p = 0.02) and 150 (p = 0.03) mg groups. Median reductions in C-reactive protein at 4 months were 36.4%, 53.0 %, 64.6%, and 58.7% for the 5, 15, 50, and 150 mg canakinumab doses, respectively, compared to 4.7% for placebo (all p values ≤ 0.02). Similarly, the median reductions in IL-6 at 4 months across the canakinumab dose range tested were 23.9%, 32.5%, 47.9%, and 44.5%, respectively, compared to 2.9% for placebo (all p ≤ 0.008), and the median reductions in fibrinogen at 4 months were 4.9%, 11.7%, 18.5%, and 14.8%, respectively, compared to 0.4% for placebo (all p values ≤ 0.0001). Adverse events were similar in the canakinumab and placebo groups.. ...

The clinical use of biologic agents to modulate specific inflammatory pathways has grown exponentially in the past decade. Given the clear overlap in the pathways that are critical in the control of microbial pathogens and those that drive pathologic autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases, it is not surprising that therapeutic blockade of cytokines for the treatment of autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases could result in severe infectious complications. This is exemplified by our experience with TNF-α antagonists, including etanercept, adalimumab, and infliximab. Postmarketing data revealed a dramatic increase in the number of cases of M. tuberculosis reactivation related to anti-TNF-α treatment (60, 61). Given that inflammasome pathways play such a critical role in the control of numerous pathogens and that a number of pathogens themselves have developed strategies to specifically evade this innate immune pathway, it seems likely that blockade of IL-1β would be accompanied by a ...
Dr. Hausmann: Thank you for a very informative and to the point article. Ive been seeing many doctors the past couple of years, and your short article helped me understand my symptoms more than any of them have. Not that I have a diagnosis yet or anything, but at least now I feel like I can rule out the first two categories in your article. I truly hope to one day overcome this battle and resume being able to live a normal healthy life and work again. I guess Ill leave as short a medical history here as I can, as others have, and maybe something will come out of it. My primary question to you though, is does it make sense that if I fall into your third category, that my sudden onset of excruciating pain in my joints accompanied by excruciating sciatica of my lower body would all be helped significantly by IV steroids rather than pain meds? I just had my third bout of this severe joint pain which sends me to the ER, after never having had joint pain at all prior to 6 months ago. The pain and ...

The arrival of next-generation sequencing technologies into clinics has unveiled new mechanistic pathways that lead to the discovery of novel autoinflammatory phenotypes that lead to excessive innate immune responses and overlapping adaptive immune dysfunction [10]. These are the deficiency of adenosine deaminase 2 (DADA2) and STING-associated vasculopathy with onset in infancy (SAVI) that share characteristics with autoimmune disease and will be also reviewed in this article. Deciphering the underlying genetic cause of a suspected autoinflammatory disease may help to understand the molecular pathways that drive clinical phenotypes, some aspects of inflammation in autoimmunity and consequently to inspire further research for novel treatment targets looking forward the best therapeutic treatment option.. In fact, genetic defects are fortunately very rare situations, but these extreme presentations are excellent opportunities to learn about how molecules really work. Both PID that involves ...
Basel, November 13, 2017 - Novartis today announced results from a new analysis of the Phase III CANTOS study presented by Dr. Paul Ridker at the American Heart Association (AHA) Scientific Sessions 2017 and published simultaneously in The Lancet[1]. The pre-planned secondary analysis of an exploratory endpoint showed that people with a prior heart attack who achieved hsCRP levels below 2mg/L at three months after the first dose of canakinumab had a 25% reduction in major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) versus placebo (HRadj=0.75, 95% CI 0.66-0.85, p,0.0001)[1]. These patients also had a significant reduction of 31% in the rate of cardiovascular (CV) death (HRadj=0.69, 95% CI 0.56-0.85, p=0.0004) and all-cause death (HRadj=0.69, 95% CI 0.58-0.81, p,0.0001)[1]. There was no significant reduction in these endpoints observed among those treated with canakinumab who achieved hsCRP levels equal to or above 2mg/L[1]. This analysis indicates that on-treatment hsCRP testing may offer a quick and ...

19 Apr 2012, 05:25 AM Hello Regina and everyone, Getting the news of the mutation is a mixed bag of emotions for sure! You finally have a name and a diagnosis, but then again, you now know what is possible with this disease, and that is a hard thing to process. I think everyone will never forget the day when they get the news of the mutation! I still remember every bit about it for my son, where I was, what I was doing, and how I was up for many nights searching the internet for more info, and what could be done for him in early 2003. This was before they started the anakinra drug trials at the NIH, and when they were first seeing patients there with NOMID. Thanks to other parents that I found online, I was able to get my son into the NIH, and later the drug trials, but before that I was very worried for his future. I answered Regina on another post yesterday on rareshare, but yes, there are a number of others with the V200M mutation, and some have more symptoms than others. There are also ...
