Hereditary angioedema with C1 inhibitor deficiency (C1-INH-HAE) is a rare inherited disease. In most HAE-affected subjects, defined trigger factors precede angioedema attacks. Mechanisms of how trigger factors stimulate the contact activation pathway with bradykinin generation are not well elucidated. In recent studies, hypersensitivity reactions and food were stated as relevant triggers. We investigated HAE affected people for possible hypersensitivity reactions or intolerances and their relation in triggering angioedema attacks. A questionnaire was filled in, recording date of birth, gender, and self-reported angioedema attacks associated with the ingestion of foodstuffs, administration of drugs, hymenoptera stings and hypersensitivity reactions against inhalation allergens. All participants performed a skin prick test against inhalation allergens and food. In patients who stated an association of possible hypersensitivity with angioedema, a serological ImmunoCAP test was also performed. From the 27
Objective Hereditary angioedema is a serious disease with unpredictable attacks. It has an impact on patients health-related quality of life. This study aimed to assess the quality of life of the hereditary angioedema patients and to investigate the relationship between quality of life and demographic, clinical, laboratory, and psychiatric parameters. Method A semistructured face-to-face interview, Hamilton depression rating scale, and Hamilton anxiety rating scale were performed by a psychiatrist. Participants completed Medical Outcomes Study Short Form-36, Revised Form of the Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support, Anxiety Sensitivity Index-3, and Adult Separation Anxiety Questionnaire. Patients complement results were recorded, and clinical data obtained by interview were cross-checked from patients files. Results In 33 hereditary angioedema patients, subscales of the Study Short Form-36, except for physical functioning, vitality, and mental health were significantly lower ...
CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE: Hereditary angioedema (HAE) with C1 inhibitor deficiency manifests as recurrent episodes of edema involving the skin, upper respiratory tract and gastrointestinal tract. It can be lethal due to asphyxia. The aim here was to evaluate the response to therapy for these attacks using icatibant, an inhibitor of the bradykinin receptor, which was recently introduced into Brazil.. DESIGN AND SETTING: Prospective experimental single-cohort study on the efficacy and safety of icatibant for HAE patients.. METHODS: Patients with a confirmed HAE diagnosis were enrolled according to symptoms and regardless of the time since onset of the attack. Icatibant was administered in accordance with the protocol that has been approved in Brazil. Symptom severity was assessed continuously and adverse events were monitored.. RESULTS: 24 attacks in 20 HAE patients were treated (female/male 19:1; 19-55 years; median 29 years of age). The symptoms were: subcutaneous edema (22/24); abdominal pain ...

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 ...

AU - Govers-Riemslag, José W P. PY - 2013/8/27. Y1 - 2013/8/27. N2 - Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is predominantly caused by a deficiency in C1 esterase inhibitor (C1INH) (HAE-C1INH). C1INH inhibits activated factor XII (FXIIa), activated factor XI (FXIa), and kallikrein. In HAE-C1INH patients the thrombotic risk is not increased even though activation of the contact system is poorly regulated. Therefore, we hypothesized that contact activation preferentially leads to kallikrein formation and less to activation of the coagulation cascade in HAE-C1INH patients. We measured the levels of C1INH in complex with activated contact factors in plasma samples of HAE-C1INH patients (N=30, 17 during remission and 13 during acute attack) and healthy controls (N=10). We did not detect differences in enzyme-inhibitor ...

This Phase II/III study consisted of two parts: A controlled phase and An Open label extension(OLE) phase. The controlled phase describes the double blind part of the study and was intended to evaluate the efficacy of icatibant in decreasing the time to onset of symptom relief compared with placebo for the first treated cutaneous and/or abdominal attack in randomised patients. Patients experienced a laryngeal attack were not randomised, but treated with open label icatibant according to the controlled phase procedures and assessments. The outcome of this group was to be reported descriptively. After treatment of the first attack in the controlled phase, the patients were eligible to enter the OLE phase. In the OLE phase, patients who experienced angioedema attacks severe enough to warrant treatment were to be treated with s.c. icatibant as appropriate until the end of the study.The OLE phase became a modified open label extension where all 56 patients who had been randomised and the last ...
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,
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 ...
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

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) 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 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. ...

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 ...

The Treatment Outcome Score (TOS)is a validated measure of response to therapy. Response assessment for each symptom complex (internal head/neck, stomach/GI, genital/buttocks, external head/neck or cutaneous) was to be weighted based on the severity of symptom complexes at baseline. Severity assessment at baseline was rated on a categorical scale (1=mild, 2=moderate, 3=severe) for symptoms at each affected symptom complex. Response assessment of each symptom complex post-dosing relative to baseline used a scale (100=significant improvement, 50=improvement, 0=same). The weighted values were used to calculate the composite TOS. A TOS greater than 0 denotes an improvement in symptoms compared with baseline severity ...
Subjects age ranged from 4 to 58 years (33 + 15 years), composed by 11 females (n=91,7%) and 1 male (n=8,3%). DNA sequencing revealed a new mutation in the exon 7 of the SERPING1 gene, a deletion of one single base in heterozygosis (c.1104delA) leading to the frameshift alteration p.D69fsX96. This mutation was found in seven of the 12 patients (all females), all of them presenting clinical symptoms and low C1-INH plasma levels. The other five family members who reported themselves as symptomatic did not show altered levels of C4, C1q, or C1INH, and gene mutation was not found in these subjects. ...

Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is clinically characterized by recurrent and self-limiting skin, intestinal, and life-threatening laryngeal edema. This study describes the age at which laryngeal edema first occurred, the time between onset and full development, and the effectiveness of therapy and prophylaxis in 123 HAE patients. 61 (49.7%) patients experienced a total of 596 laryngeal edema episodes. The ratio of laryngeal edema episodes to skin swellings and abdominal pain attacks was approximately 1:70:54 in patients who had laryngeal edema. The mean (SD) age at the first laryngeal edema was 26.2 (15.3) years. Nearly 80% of the laryngeal edemas occurred between age 11 and 45. The mean interval between onset and maximum development of laryngeal edema was 8.3 hours. A total of 354 laryngeal edemas cleared spontaneously without treatment and 208 laryngeal edemas were successfully treated with C1 inhibitor concentrate. Despite long-term prophylactic treatment with danazol, 6 patients developed ...
Angioedema can be classified into the following types: Allergic angioedema, bradykinin mediated angioedema, drug induced angioedema, hereditary angioedema, and acquired angioedema. Angioedema should be differentiated from: Acute urticaria, anaphylaxis, food Allergy, and drug allergy. Abdominal attacks have also been known to cause a significant increase in the patients white blood cell count, usually in the vicinity of 13-30,000. As the symptoms begin to diminish, the white count slowly begins to decrease, returning to normal when the attack subsides. Possible complications include: Anaphylactic reaction and life-threatening airway blockage (if swelling occurs in the throat). Angioedema that does not affect the breathing may be uncomfortable, but is usually harmless and goes away in a few days. Predicting where and when the next episode of edema will occur is impossible. Most patients have an average of one episode per month, but there are also patients who have weekly episodes or only one or ...

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 ...

Cases of acquired angioedema associated with myeloproliferative disorders have been described in the literature, but these have been associated with a characteristic low C1q, a defining laboratory finding in acquired angioedema. Here we present a case of 68-year-old female with acquired angioedema that was not associated with low C1q, but was found to have Waldenström disease. Her angioedema responded dramatically to combination therapy consisting of bortezomib, ...
Total complement can be measured by hemolytic tests. For this test, the patients blood is mixed with antibody-coated red blood cells (RBCs) of sheep. The end point is when 50% of the RBCs are lysed. The patients blood is serially diluted and results are reported in complement units per milliliter. Specimens for complement assays may be sent out to reference laboratories. These tests assess the overall function of the entire complement system. The C3 and C4 components can be quantitated by direct immunologic measurement. These subcomponents are measured when total complement has been found to be reduced. C3 makes up the majority of the component of complement. It is made in the liver and to a lesser degree in the spleen, skin, and other lymphoid nodules. C4 is made in the bone and lung.. Reduced complement levels can be congenital, as in hereditary angioedema. Hereditary angioedema is a congenital lack of a C1 inhibitor (often called C1 esterase). The complement system is overly activated and ...

Sir,We endorse the comments regarding angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor-associated angioedema made in the recent article by Murray and Crowther.1-1However, we would also highlight the important racial differences in susceptibility to ACE-inhibitor-induced angioedema, with a markedly increased risk in Afro-Caribbean patients.1-2 A four-fold increase in risk has been reported in African-American patients, when compared with other ethnic groups, and there may also be race-related differences in the severity of ACE-inhibitor-associated angioedema.1-2 Since 1993 we have maintained a prospective hospital-based register of patients with ACE-inhibitor-associated angioedema and a total of 16 patients (10 Afro-Caribbean, five Caucasian, and one Asian) have now been reported. Three of these patients (all Afro-Caribbean) developed severe angioedema, requiring admission to the intensive care unit, and one of them subsequently died. Although angioedema normally occurs in the early stages of ...
From the Department of Emergency Medicine King-Drew/UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles, California Abstract Two cases of hereditary angioedema and one of acquired angioedema are reported because of their unusual emergency department presentations. Case one is a 27-year-old man of Italian descent who visited the ED because of severe abdominal pain. He subsequently underwent an unnecessary appendectomy. Case two is a 56-year-old Caucasian man who presented to the ED because of shortness of breath, and, subsequently, he developed severe airway obstruction and was intubated. Case three is a 68-year-old black women with a history of chronic lymphocytic leukemia in remission. She was brought into the ED because of severe shortness of breath and had an emergent cricothyrotomy was performed in the ED because of upper airway obstruction and an inability to be intubated.

Angioedema is swelling in the deep layers of the skin, often seen with urticaria (hives). Angioedema most often occurs in soft tissues such as the eyelids, mouth or genitals.. Angioedema is called acute if the condition lasts only a short time (minutes to days). This is commonly caused by an allergic reaction to medications or foods.. Chronic recurrent angioedema is when the condition returns over a long period of time. It most often does not have an identifiable cause.. Hereditary angiodema (HAE) is a rare, but serious genetic condition involving swelling in various body parts including the hands, feet, face, intestinal wall and airways..

Feasibility of home infusion and self-administration of nanofiltered C1 esterase inhibitor for routine prophylaxis in patients with hereditary angioedema and ch
The skin of the face, normally around the mouth, and the mucosa of the mouth and/or throat, as well as the tongue, swell over the period of minutes to hours. The swelling can also occur elsewhere, typically in the hands. The swelling can be itchy or painful. There may also be slightly decreased sensation in the affected areas due to compression of the nerves. Urticaria (hives) may develop simultaneously. In severe cases, stridor of the airway occurs, with gasping or wheezy inspiratory breath sounds and decreasing oxygen levels. Tracheal intubation is required in these situations to prevent respiratory arrest and risk of death. Sometimes, the cause is recent exposure to an allergen (e.g. peanuts), but more often it is either idiopathic (unknown) or only weakly correlated to allergen exposure. In hereditary angioedema, often no direct cause is identifiable, although mild trauma, including dental work and other stimuli, can cause attacks.[4] There is usually no associated itch or urticaria, as it ...
Hereditary angioedema (C1 inhibitor deficiency, HAE) is associated with intermittent swellings which are disabling and may be fatal. Effective treatments are available and these are most useful when given early in the course of the swelling. The requirement to attend a medical facility for parenteral treatment results in delays. Home therapy offers the possibility of earlier treatment and better symptom control, enabling patients to live more healthy, productive lives. This paper examines the evidence for patient-controlled home treatment of acute attacks (self or assisted administration) and suggests a framework for patients and physicians interested in participating in home or self-administration programmes. It represents the opinion of the authors who have a wide range of expert experience in the management of HAE.
TPA is a thrombolytic drug used in the treatment of acute strokes. It hydrolyzes plasminogen to plasmin and results in its fibrinolytic effect. The increase in plasmin may play a role in the development of angioedema by activating the kinin pathway and leading to the formation of the vasodilator bradykinin. Plasmin also activates the complement system and leads to the production of the anaphyloxins C3a, C4a, and C5a, which also cause mast cell degranulation and histamine release.4 Patient assessment should be done every 15 minutes during tPA infusion for signs of clinical deterioration indicating a possible intracranial hemorrhage, or for signs of angioedema. Angioedema is defined as an acute, transient, well-demarcated swelling that involves the deeper layers of the skin. It usually affects the face, genitalia, as well as the upper respiratory airways and the intestinal epithelial lining.5 Angioedema could be due to a hereditary deficiency in C1-esterase or it could occur as an allergic ...
This is the largest observational study of medication-related angioedema published to date. It provides important information on the risks of this condition across the spectrum of patients seen in clinics, including many patients who would not have been included in trials because of comorbidities. It is derived from a population of about 2 million VA patients prescribed antihypertensive prescriptions, focusing on a sample of nearly 600 000 patients first initiating this treatment with 833 new angioedema cases identified over a 21-month period. Furthermore, an extensive medical record review of a 14% sample indicated confirmation for over 95% of cases. From these data, we estimate an angioedema incidence in patients newly prescribed ACE of 1.97 per 1000 person years of use with relatively narrow confidence intervals (1.71 to 2.18). We project that about 1 of every 2600 new ACE users experiences angioedema within 30 days and about one of every 1000 experiences it within a year after first use. It ...

Adult Allergy Specialists are physicians who deal with a wide range of disorders including anaphylaxis, asthma, rhinitis, nasal polyposis, urticaria and angioedema (including hereditary angioedema), eczema, and allergy to food, drugs, latex rubber and venom. They run immunotherapy clinics, anti-IgE clinics, transition clinics for adolescents with allergic disease and food and drug challenge clinics. They also have the expertise to exclude allergy as a diagnosis, allowing the patient to receive the drugs they need or to proceed with other appropriate investigations.. Adult allergists are expected to have a good knowledge of paediatric allergy and in some cases adult allergists will also see children. However, because of the lack of allergy specialists the majority of uncomplicated allergy cases are treated by organ-based specialists, including chest physicians, ENT specialists, dermatologists, immunologists and general paediatricians. ...

ARBs are known to be associated with angioedema but the risk is quite low. The mechanism is unknown and there is no plausible mechanism in common with ACEIs. It cannot be established conclusively from empirical evidence that there is any true cross sensitivity. However, given the speculation that patients with ACEI induced angioedema may have an allergic diathesis predisposing them to angioedema from unrelated mechanisms the authors of the review advise caution, as do various other experts and guidelines. These cautions include patient education as to possible risk and shared decision making. For appropriate indications the benefits of ARBs are substantial in patients ACEI intolerant and must be weighed against the very small risk. ...

by Vetscite. Transgenic chickens are the latest animals engineered to produce farmaceutical drugs.. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a chicken that has been genetically engineered to produce a drug in its eggs. The drug, Kanuma (sebelipase alfa), is a recombinant human enzyme marketed by Alexion Pharmaceuticals. It replaces a faulty enzyme in people with a rare, inherited condition that prevents the body from breaking down fatty molecules in cells.. Following its approval by the FDA on 8 December, Kanuma joins a small group of farmaceuticals on the US market. In 2009, the agency approved genetically modified goats that produce an anticoagulant called ATryn (antithrombin) in their milk. And last year, the FDA authorized a drug for treating hereditary angioedema that is produced by transgenic rabbits.. The FDAs latest decision shows that the ATryn goats werent just a one-off, says Jay Cormier, a lawyer at Hyman, Phelps and McNamara in Washington DC and a former ...

Objective Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is thought to be a rare disorder in Japan, and the clinical features of Japanese patients with FMF remain unclear. Our aim was to elucidate the clinical characteristics of FMF in Japanese patients. Methods We analyzed clinical and genetic data of 80 patients based on the results of a nationwide questionnaire survey and review of the literature. Results From clinical findings of 80 Japanese patients, high-grade fever was observed in 98.8%, chest attacks (pleuritis symptoms) in 61.2%, abdominal attacks (peritonitis symptoms) in 55.0%, and arthritis in 27.5%. Twenty-four percent of patients experienced their first attacks before 10 years of age, 40% in their teens, and 36% after age 20 years. Colchicine was effective in many patients at a relatively low dose (, 1.0 mg/day). AA amyloidosis was seen in only 1 patient. Common MEFV mutation patterns were E148Q/M694I (25.0%), M694I alone (17.5%), and L110P/E148Q/M694I (17.5%), and no patient carried the M694V ...
