Biased JH usage in plasma cell immunoglobulin gene sequences from colonic mucosa in ulcerative colitis but not in Crohn's disease. (1/605)

BACKGROUND: Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory disease of the colonic and rectal mucosa. Autoantibodies have been observed in ulcerative colitis which may have a role in the pathogenesis of the disease. Evidence also suggests that there is an hereditary predisposition towards the disease, although no individual genes have been identified. AIMS: This is a pilot study of immunoglobulin heavy chain genes (IgH) in ulcerative colitis to determine whether they have any particular genetic characteristics which may lead to a better understanding of the disease aetiology. SUBJECTS: Colonic or rectal tissue was obtained from five children with ulcerative colitis. Tissue was also obtained from five children with Crohn's disease and five children who did not have inflammatory bowel disease as controls. METHODS: B cells and IgD+ B cells were identified by immunohistochemistry on frozen sections. Areas of lamina propria containing plasma cells, and areas of IgD+ B cells were microdissected. The immunoglobulin genes were PCR amplified, cloned, and sequenced. Sequences were analysed for content of somatic mutations and composition of heavy chain. RESULTS: An increase in the use of JH6 and DXP'1, and a decrease in the use of JH4, gene segments in immunoglobulin genes from lamina propria plasma cells, and from virgin IgD+ B cells, was found in patients with ulcerative colitis. These biases were not present in the control groups. CONCLUSIONS: There is a fundamental difference in the immunoglobulin genes from patients with ulcerative colitis. Whether this is caused by a difference in content of immunoglobulin gene segments in the germline or a difference in the recombination mechanism is not known.  (+info)

Antigen-stimulated dissociation of BCR mIg from Ig-alpha/Ig-beta: implications for receptor desensitization. (2/605)

B cell antigen receptor (BCR) ligation leads to receptor desensitization wherein BCR remain competent to bind antigen and yet fail to transduce signals. Desensitized BCR exhibit a defect at the most proximal level of signal transduction, consistent with failed transmission of signals through the receptor complex. We report that antigen stimulation leads to dissociation or destabilization of the BCR reflected by inability to coimmunoprecipitate Ig-alpha/Ig-beta with mIg. This destabilization is temporally correlated with desensitization and occurs in BCR containing mIgM and mIgD. Induction of BCR destabilization requires tyrosine kinase activation but is not induced by phosphatase inhibitors. BCR destabilization occurs at the cell surface and "dissociated" Ig-alpha/Ig-beta complexes remain responsive to anti-Ig-beta stimulation, suggesting that mIg-transducer uncoupling may mediate receptor desensitization.  (+info)

IL-5 induces IgG1 isotype switch recombination in mouse CD38-activated sIgD-positive B lymphocytes. (3/605)

Mouse B cells express CD38, whose ligation by anti-CD38 Ab induces their proliferation and protection from apoptosis. We previously showed that stimulation of mouse splenic B cells with IL-5 together with CS/2, an anti-mouse CD38 mAb, induces production of IgG1 and IgM. Here we examined the role of IL-5 and CS/2 in the expression of germline gamma1 transcripts and the generation of reciprocal products forming DNA circles as byproducts of mu-gamma1 switch recombination. By itself, CS/2 induced significant expression of germline gamma1 transcripts in splenic naive B cells, whereas IL-5 neither induced nor enhanced germline gamma1 expression. Increased cellular content of reciprocal product, which is characteristic of mu-gamma1 recombination, was not observed after culturing B cells with CS/2, but increased reciprocal product, along with high levels of lgG1 secretion, was found when B cells were cultured with CS/2 plus IL-5. Although IL-4 did not, by itself, induce mu-gamma1 recombination in B cells stimulated with CS/2, in conjunction with CS/2 plus IL-5, IL-4 dramatically enhanced sterile gamma1 transcription and IgG1 production. These results demonstrate that CD38 ligation induces only germline gamma1 transcription and that IL-5 promotes both mu-gamma1 switch recombination and lgG1 secretion in an IL-4-independent manner.  (+info)

Induction of Ig somatic hypermutation and class switching in a human monoclonal IgM+ IgD+ B cell line in vitro: definition of the requirements and modalities of hypermutation. (4/605)

Partly because of the lack of a suitable in vitro model, the trigger(s) and the mechanism(s) of somatic hypermutation in Ig genes are largely unknown. We have analyzed the hypermutation potential of human CL-01 lymphocytes, our monoclonal model of germinal center B cell differentiation. These cells are surface IgM+ IgD+ and, in the absence of T cells, switch to IgG, IgA, and IgE in response to CD40:CD40 ligand engagement and exposure to appropriate cytokines. We show here that CL-01 cells can be induced to effectively mutate the expressed VHDJH-C mu, VHDJH-C delta, VHDJH-C gamma, VHDJH-C alpha, VHDJH-C epsilon, and V lambda J lambda-C lambda transcripts before and after Ig class switching in a stepwise fashion. In these cells, induction of somatic mutations required cross-linking of the surface receptor for Ag and T cell contact through CD40:CD40 ligand and CD80: CD28 coengagement. The induced mutations showed intrinsic features of Ig V(D)J hypermutation in that they comprised 110 base substitutions (97 in the heavy chain and 13 in the lambda-chain) and only 2 deletions and targeted V(D)J, virtually sparing CH and C lambda. These mutations were more abundant in secondary VHDJH-C gamma than primary VHDJH-C mu transcripts and in V(D)J-C than V lambda J lambda-C lambda transcripts. These mutations were also associated with coding DNA strand polarity and showed an overall rate of 2.42 x 10(-4) base changes/cell division in VHDJH-CH transcripts. Transitions were favored over transversions, and G nucleotides were preferentially targeted, mainly in the context of AG dinucleotides. Thus, in CL-01 cells, Ig somatic hypermutation is readily inducible by stimuli different from those required for class switching and displays discrete base substitution modalities.  (+info)

The evolutionarily conserved sequence upstream of the human Ig heavy chain S gamma 3 region is an inducible promoter: synergistic activation by CD40 ligand and IL-4 via cooperative NF-kappa B and STAT-6 binding sites. (5/605)

Germline C gamma gene transcription is a crucial event in the process that leads to switch DNA recombination to IgG, but its regulation in the human is poorly understood. We took advantage of our monoclonal model of germinal center B cell differentiation, IgM+ IgD+ CL-01 cells, to define the role of the I gamma 3 evolutionarily conserved sequence (ECS) in the germline transcriptional activation of the human C gamma 3 gene. The I gamma 3 ECS lies upstream of the major I gamma 3 transcription initiation site and displays more than 90% identity with the corresponding human I gamma 1, I gamma 2, and I gamma 4 regions. Reporter luciferase gene vectors containing the human gamma 3 ECS were used to transfect CL-01 cells, which have been shown to undergo Smu-->S gamma 3 DNA recombination, upon engagement of CD40 by CD40 ligand (CD40L) and exposure to IL-4. In these transfected CL-01 cells, CD40:CD40L engagement and exposure to IL-4 synergistically induced gamma 3 ECS-dependent luciferase reporter gene activation. Targeted mutational analysis demonstrated that a tandem NF-kappa B/Rel binding motif is critical for the gamma 3 ECS responsiveness to both CD40L and IL-4, while a STAT-6-binding site is additionally required for IL-4 inducibility. Electrophoretic mobility shift assays showed that p50/p65/c-Rel and STAT-6 are effectively induced by CD40L and IL-4, respectively, and bind to specific DNA motifs within the ECS. These partially overlapping CD40L and IL-4 responsive elements are functionally cooperative as the disruption of one of them prevents synergistic promoter activation. Thus, the gamma 3 ECS is an inducible promoter containing cis elements that critically mediate CD40L and IL-4-triggered transcriptional activation of the human C gamma 3 gene.  (+info)

Differential regulation of transcription termination occurring at two different sites on the micro-delta gene complex. (6/605)

The progression of polymerases across the micro-delta Ig heavy chain gene complex is characterized by two termination events occurring at different sites on the transcription unit and at different times during B cell differentiation. We have utilized two mouse strains to analyze the regulatory determinants for these events in primary B cells. In the transgenic pmicro.microdeltaRatt strain a 1160 bp intervening DNA segment (the att site) has been inverted. This mutation results in the abrogation of transcription termination that occurs in early B cells. Using a novel method that takes advantage of an internal ribosome entry site we have further restricted the size of the segment that is needed for inducing transcription termination in transfectants. This 200 bp termination-inducing sequence operates in tumor equivalents of early but not mature B cells and the activity is correlated with differential binding of nuclear proteins. To explore the regulatory basis for the change in site of transcription termination upon B cell activation we have examined the microS-/- deletion mutant strain in which the microS poly(A) site has been eliminated. The results suggest that polyadenylation at the microS site plays a dominant but not exclusive role in regulating transcription termination in activated B cells.  (+info)

Serum hyaluronan in patients with multiple myeloma: correlation with survival and Ig concentration. (7/605)

Serum from 386 myeloma patients were analyzed for serum hyaluronan (HYA) at diagnosis. Median age was 68 years (range, 32 to 87 years). The distribution of Ig classes was typical (58% IgG, 21% IgA, 1% IgD, and 20% light chain disease). The patients comprised 58% in stage III, 33% in stage II, and 9% in stage I. The majority (82%) had HYA values within an intermediate range (10 to 120 micrograms/L), 13% had high values (>120 micrograms/L), and 5% had abnormally low values (0 to 9 micrograms/L). For the first time, a patient group with abnormally low HYA serum values is reported. An inverse correlation between survival and HYA serum level was found (P =.015). When tested separately, patients with abnormally low or high HYA values had significantly shorter median survival (21.1 and 19.7 months, respectively) than those with an intermediate HYA concentration (32. 6 months; P =.005). Patients with abnormally low or high HYA levels had more advanced disease as judged by staging and biochemical markers. Interestingly, there was an inverse correlation between the HYA value and the M-component concentration in serum. Fifty percent of patients with abnormally low HYA values had IgA myelomas. In conclusion, the serum concentration of HYA may be of prognostic value in selected cases of multiple myeloma. Further studies will be performed to elucidate possible explanations for our findings, especially those related to the HYA cell surface binding proteins.  (+info)

Composite low grade B-cell lymphomas with two immunophenotypically distinct cell populations are true biclonal lymphomas. A molecular analysis using laser capture microdissection. (8/605)

Low grade B-cell lymphomas comprise several well defined, clinically and immunophenotypically distinct disease entities. Composite lymphomas showing phenotypic characteristics of more than one of these tumor subtypes in the same site are rare, and both common and separate clonal origins of the two tumor parts have been reported for cases studied by molecular methods. We describe the detailed immunohistochemical and molecular findings in three cases with features of composite low grade B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (B-NHL). All three neoplasms contained morphologically distinct but interwoven compartments of different cell types, which exhibited discordant expression of several markers, including CD5, CD10, CD43, and cyclin D1. According to their morphology and phenotypes, they were classified as mantle cell lymphoma and follicular lymphoma (Case 1), follicular lymphoma and small lymphocytic lymphoma (Case 2), and mantle cell lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (Case 3). PCR analysis of DNA obtained from whole tissue sections failed to reveal evidence for biclonality in any of the cases. We therefore isolated cell populations with different antigen expression patterns by laser capture microdissection and analyzed them by polymerase chain reaction amplification and sequencing of clonal immunoglobulin heavy chain gene rearrangements and oncogene rearrangements. Sequence analysis revealed unrelated clonal rearrangements in each of the two tumor parts in all three cases, suggesting distinct clonal origins. In addition, Case 1 showed a bcl-2 rearrangement present only in the follicular lymphoma part. Our findings suggest that low grade B-NHL with two distinct morphological and immunophenotypic patterns in the same anatomical site are frequently biclonal. This is in keeping with current classification schemes, which recognize subtypes of low grade B-NHL as separate disease entities. Furthermore, our analysis demonstrates the power of laser capture microdissection in revealing molecular microheterogeneity in complex neoplasms.  (+info)

The gene for protein D, a membrane-associated protein with specific affinity for human immunoglobulin D, was cloned from a nontypeable strain of Haemophilus influenzae. The gene was expressed in Escherichia coli from an endogenous promoter, and the gene product has an apparent molecular weight equal to that of H. influenzae protein D (42,000). The complete nucleotide sequence of the gene for protein D was determined, and the deduced amino acid sequence of 364 residues includes a putative signal sequence of 18 amino acids containing a consensus sequence, Leu-Ala-Gly-Cys, for bacterial lipoproteins. The sequence of protein D shows no similarity to those of other immunoglobulin-binding proteins. Protein D is the first example of immunoglobulin receptors from gram-negative bacteria that has been cloned and sequenced. ...

IgD monoclonal proteins are rare and historically have been associated with the presence of multiple myeloma. In 1970, a patient was reported who had IgD multiple myeloma with multiple extramedullary amyloid-containing tumors and amyloid casts in the kidney.12 In 1973, another patient was reported who had IgD myeloma and amyloid arthropathy that led to periarticular infiltration with subcutaneous nodules mimicking rheumatoid arthritis.13 Both of these reports predated the first recognition that amyloidosis was a clear plasma-cell dyscrasia associated with monoclonal Ig.14 In contrast to these isolated case reports, IgD-associated multiple myeloma was well recognized. One study reviewed the cases of 133 patients with IgD-associated multiple myeloma; these IgD-associated cases constituted 0.8% of the M components and 2.1% of the myelomas seen at the institution.1 In these patients, IgD levels were recognized to be low despite the presence of a monoclonal IgD protein, and λ light chains were found ...

An investigation has been made into the ability of human neoplastic B lymphocytes expressing surface IgM and IgD to export IgD in culture. Cells that expressed surface Ig of the lambda light chain type frequently exported IgD (10/12 patients), whereas cells expressing surface Ig of the kappa light chain type exported no IgD, although most (8/11 patients) were able to export IgM. It appears, therefore, that in most of the 23 cases studied, cells synthesizing IgD with lambda light chains can both express and export IgD, whereas those synthesizing IgD kappa can only insert it into the surface membrane. This finding and the known preponderance of lambda in plasma IgD imply that the possession of a lambda chain facilitates the IgD secretory pathway, a conclusion that implicates a control mechanism subsequent to the surface/secretory dichotomy arising from different splicings of heavy chain messenger RNA. ...
Results Patients reported that HIDS was characterised by symptomatic flares and periods of wellness. Flares were individualised in terms of symptoms, frequency and duration. They were typically depicted by high fevers and nausea (especially in paediatrics), as well as pain and were often so severe that patients were bed ridden. In children this led to severely disrupted education. Caregivers and adult patients reported loss of work during attacks and for medical appointments, limiting career choices and progression and leading to financial dependency. HIDS also had an impact on patients relationships and social lives by limiting their activities either through being unwell or unable to plan ahead due to fear of an attack. Severity of symptoms, the duration and frequency of flares seemed to decrease with age and treatment. Patients frequently experienced a delay in diagnosis (range, 15 months to 20 years) during which time they were subjected to a variety of diagnostic tests for other ...

In the recent paper by Stabile et al. [1], the authors evaluate a group of patients suffering from a rare metabolic disease, called mevalonate kinase deficiency (MKD), previously known as Hyper-IgD syndrome (HIDs). The latter name was due to the fact that some patients displayed, among other symptoms, increased levels of circulating IgD during febrile flares. Stabile and colleagues re-evaluated 305 children with recurrent fevers, drawing out 10 patients based on the presence of inflammatory signs and elevated IgD levels. They found that IgD levels did not correlate with disease severity. This is one of the several works showing that IgD levels in this syndrome are not specific as diagnostic marker [2, 3]; the diagnosis of MKD should be based on other, more specific, markers (for a review of a possible diagnostic algorithm, see [4]. Here, we propose to re-evaluate the christening of this syndrome, for both the names HIDs and MKD. As we stated above, IgD levels should not be considered strictly a marker

TY - JOUR. T1 - Splenic B cells and antigen-specific B cells process anti-Ig in a similar manner. AU - Myers, Christopher D.. AU - Vitetta, Ellen S.. PY - 1989. Y1 - 1989. N2 - B lymphocytes can process and present antigen to T cells. However, the fate of native antigen after its binding to specific B cells, i.e., the intracellular events involved in the processing and recycling of the antigenic fragments to the cell surface for antigen presentation, are not well understood. In the present study, we demonstrate that murine B cells degrade anti-Ig molecules bound to their surface and release acid soluble fragments into the supernatant. We also demonstrate that the kinetics of this process are identical for anti-μ, anti-δ, and anti-light chain antibodies, indicating that both surface IgM and surface IgD are equally effective in binding antigen and directing its processing.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Diagnostic challenge of hyper-IgD syndrome in four children with inflammatory gastrointestinal complaints. AU - Oretti, Chiara. AU - Barbi, Egidio. AU - Marchetti, Federico. AU - Lepore, Loredana. AU - Ventura, Alessandro. AU - DOsualdo, Andrea. AU - Gattorno, Marco. AU - Martelossi, Stefano. AU - Tommasini, Alberto. PY - 2006/3. Y1 - 2006/3. N2 - Objective. Hyper-IgD syndrome (HIDS) is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by recurrent fever, lymphadenopathy, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, headache, arthralgia and skin rash. Abdominal symptomatology may mimic inflammatory bowel disease. We report on four patients with HIDS who had been previously investigated for Crohns disease (CD). The levels of IgD were measured in a series of patients with CD to evaluate the specificity of this assay in the differential diagnosis between the two conditions. Material and methods. Diagnosis of HIDS was based on clinical criteria as well as immunological or genetic data. IgD levels ...

We have studied the effects of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) on the growth and differentiation of human tonsillar B lymphocytes cultured in the CD40 system with or without IL-4 or IL-10. PGE2 (10(-9) to 10(-6) M) enhanced proliferation of B cells activated through their CD40 Ag, but not their Ig secretion. PGE2 further potentiated both IL-4- and IL-10-induced B cell growth as determined by [3H]TdR uptake and cellular enumeration. The IL-10-induced IgM, IgG, and IgA secretion was enhanced twofold to fourfold after addition of PGE2, whereas IL-4-induced IgG and IgE secretion was inhibited. The IgE production was particularly sensitive as an approximately 90% inhibition was obtained for 10(-7) M PGE2. In addition, PGE2 inhibited IgE production by naive surface IgD+ B cells cultured in the CD40 system, suggesting that PGE2 may interact with mechanisms involved in IgE switching. PGE2 displayed similar effects on cytokine-induced proliferation and Ig secretion of B cells activated by anti-CD40 Abs used in a ...
Mammalian B cells are subdivided into three main lineages: B2 (follicular B cells), B1, and marginal zone B cells, based on developmental appearance, tissue localization, cell surface markers, BCR repertoires, and response to Ag. B1 cells, composed of B1a or B1b cells, are considered innate-like B cells (79), which differentiate early in development from a distinct B1 cell precursor, express a unique BCR repertoire (80-82), and, as plasma cells, can be induced to secrete natural Abs (83, 84). B1 cells are found in the peritoneal cavity and LP of the intestine and rarely in secondary lymphoid tissues. This unique, LP-associated localization of B1 cells marks these cells as important for the production of multimeric, J chain-associated Ig isotypes that are secreted into the lumen. J chain has been described as a marker of mucosal-targeted plasma cells (Fig. 2C, 2D), wherein the presence of J chain in some human IgD+ and IgG+ cells is explained by their mucosal-associated location ...
C3H/HeJ T cells which specifically recognize B cell-surface antigens of the related, major histocompatibility complex-compatible C3H/Tif strain, can be substantially enriched in vitro by long-term exposure (2--6 wk) of primed lymph node cells to the relevant cellular antigens. These enriched T cells contain functional helper cells as demonstrated by their capacity to induce large numbers of Ig-secreting plaque-forming cells (PFC) in cultures of antigenic B cells. The cooperative interaction results in activation of a large fraction of all splenic B cells, with consequent exponential growth and maturation to high rate secretion of IgM, IgG1, and IgG2, but not IgG3. The IgM PFC response includes antibody specificities to a number of different antigens and can be considered, therefore, as polyclonal. The T helper cell-dependent B-cell response is insensitive to inhibition by anti-delta antibodies, and in contrast with lipopolysaccharide-induced PFC responses, is only partially sensitive to the ...

Hereditary periodic fever syndromes are defined by the presence of recurrent incapacitating episodes or fluctuating degrees of fever and inflammation in the absence of infection. Unlike autoimmune diseases, hereditary periodic fever syndromes are marked by the absence of significant levels of autoantibodies and autoreactive T-cells. As a consequence, the name autoinflammatory syndromes has been advocated as a common descriptive denominator for this group of rare disorders.1,2 Since 1997, ten of the major syndromes have been linked to mutations in seven specific genes, facilitating the specific diagnosis of these conditions rather than relegating them to diagnoses of exclusion3 (Table 61-1). The nomenclature of the various autoinflammatory syndromes is complicated, comprising a mix of syndromes described by various typical manifestations and syndromes characterized by identification of specific genetic defects. Most terms originated from the period preceding the discovery of the implicated ...

FMF is an inherited inflammatory disorder predominantly affecting people of the Mediterranean littoral, but which has been described in many populations.1 The gene associated with FMF, MEFV, was cloned in 1997 and comprises 10 exons.1 Forty eight mutations associated with FMF have been reported, just five of which are associated with 70-80% of cases.2 Although finding a mutation in each MEFV allele corroborates a diagnosis of FMF, the sensitivity and specificity of DNA analysis are hampered by reduced penetrance, and by the fact that only a single mutation can be identified in up to 20% of patients with classical FMF.3-5 This suggests that certain people may be especially susceptible to a single MEFV mutation, or that other as yet unidentified genes can contribute to the pathogenesis of the disease. The diagnosis of FMF therefore remains clinical, and the Tel Hashomer criteria are well validated for this purpose.6,7. Pyrin I591T was first reported in 2001 with no accompanying clinical data.8 A ...

The term auto-inflammatory disorders has been coined to describe a group of conditions characterized by spontaneously relapsing and remitting bouts of systemic inflammation without apparent involvement of antigen-specific T cells or significant production of auto-antibodies. The hereditary periodic fever syndromes are considered as the prototypic auto-inflammatory diseases, and genetic studies have yielded important new insights into innate immunity. DNA analysis has greatly enhanced the clinical characterization of these conditions, and elucidation of their molecular aetiopathogenesis has suggested that therapies may be aimed at specific targets within the immune cascade ...

Hi Jakub, I didnt get the original post, but I wanted to let you know about another method of Bcell stimulation that Ive used before- polyclonal goat anti-IgD. It was originally developed by Fred Finkelman (i think) and Ive used it in murine models in vivo systems with lots of luck- it should work in vitro if you can find the antibody. Interestingly, this type of stimulation is T cell independent, although it prefferentially activates naive B cells.

Normal saline (NSS, NS or N/S) is the commonly used phrase for a solution of 0.90% w/v of NaCl, 308 mOsm/L or 9.0 g per litre. Less commonly, this solution is referred to as physiological saline or isotonic saline (because it closely approximates isotonic, that is, physiologically normal, solution); although neither of those names is technically accurate (because normal saline is not exactly like blood serum), they convey the practical effect usually seen: good fluid balance with minimal hypotonicity or hypertonicity. NS is used frequently in intravenous drips (IVs) for people who cannot take fluids orally and have developed or are in danger of developing dehydration or hypovolemia. NS is also used for aseptic purpose. NS is typically the first fluid used when hypovolemia is severe enough to threaten the adequacy of blood circulation, and has long been believed to be the safest fluid to give quickly in large volumes. However, it is now known that rapid infusion of NS can cause metabolic ...
PICCs can remain in situ for extended periods of time, from seven days to 4 months [4] up to 12 months although little information is available with respect to viability timeframes. They are used in both the hospital and community settings. PICCs can be used for intravenous delivery of total parenteral nutrition (TPN), chemotherapy, antibiotics or other medications, and can also be used for blood sampling if the lumen is 4 French or larger in size (Arrow and Bard manufacturers guidelines). To maintain patency, PICC management should include regular flushing with normal saline and "locking" with Heparin or normal saline when not in use. The type of locking procedure depends on the type of PICC and bung; Groshong PICCs have a three-way valve at the tip so the use of a heparin lock is not necessary, and there are no clamps on the external length. In comparison, Arrow PICCs have clamps on the exterior line and require a heparin lock. The use of heparin to maintain line patency, though, is ...
Ringer's lactate has an osmolarity of 273 mOsm L−1.[12] The lactate is metabolized into bicarbonate by the liver, which can help correct metabolic acidosis. Ringer's lactate solution alkalinizes via its consumption in the citric acid cycle, the generation of a molecule of carbon dioxide which is then excreted by the lungs. They increase the strong ion difference in solution, leading to proton consumption and an overall alkalinizing effect.[13] The solution is formulated to have concentrations of potassium and calcium that are similar to the ionized concentrations found in normal blood plasma. To maintain electrical neutrality, the solution has a lower level of sodium than that found in blood plasma or normal saline.[4] Generally, the source of the constituent ions is a mixture of sodium chloride (NaCl), sodium lactate (CH3CH(OH)CO2Na), calcium chloride (CaCl2), and potassium chloride (KCl), dissolved into distilled water. Ringer's solution has the same constituents without the sodium lactate, ...

Side effects may include allergic reactions, high blood potassium, volume overload, and high blood calcium.[2] It may not be suitable for mixing with certain medications and some recommend against use in the same infusion as a blood transfusion.[4] Ringer's lactate solution has a lower rate of acidosis as compared with normal saline.[1][4] Use is generally safe in pregnancy and breastfeeding.[2] Ringer's lactate solution is in the crystalloid family of medication.[5] ...

Only a limited number of emulsifiers are commonly regarded as safe to use for parenteral administration, of which the most important is lecithin.[medical citation needed] Lecithin can be biodegraded and metabolized, since it is an integral part of biological membranes, making it virtually non-toxic. Other emulsifiers can only be excreted via the kidneys,[citation needed] creating a toxic load. The emulsifier of choice for most fat emulsions used for parenteral nutrition is a highly purified egg lecithin,[36] due to its low toxicity and complete integration with cell membranes. Use of egg-derived emulsifiers is not recommended for people with an egg allergy due to the risk of reaction. In situations where there is no suitable emulsifying agent for a person at risk of developing essential fatty acid deficiency, cooking oils may be spread upon large portions of available skin for supplementation by transdermal absorption. Another type of fat emulsion Omegaven is being used experimentally within the ...
