OBJECTIVE As data on the predictive characteristics of diabetes-associated autoantibodies for type 1 diabetes in the general population are scarce, we assessed the predictive performance of islet cell autoantibodies (ICAs) in combination with autoantibodies against insulin (IAAs), autoantibodies against GAD, and/or islet antigen 2 for type 1 diabetes in children with HLA-defined disease predisposition recruited from the general population.. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We observed 7,410 children from birth (median 9.2 years) for β-cell autoimmunity and diabetes. If a child developed ICA positivity or diabetes, the three other antibodies were measured in all samples available from that individual. Persistent autoantibody positivity was defined as continued positivity in at least two sequential samples including the last available sample.. RESULTS Pre-diabetic ICA positivity was observed in 1,173 subjects (15.8%), 155 of whom developed type 1 diabetes. With ICA screening, 86% of 180 progressors ...
ANAs have been known to be present in BC sera for several decades [25] but their significance remains unknown [24]. This is likely because autoantibodies are part of the normal immune response, and sera from healthy subjects exhibit a plethora of autoantibodies not related to cancer [30-32]. The application of genomics and proteomics to biomarker discovery allowed the identification of multiple autoantibodies in BC sera recognizing TAAs [3-10]. These studies strongly suggested the possibility that autoantibodies in cancer sera were potentially useful biomarkers for the early diagnosis of BC. The seminal work establishing the role of autoantibodies as diagnostic biomarkers in the rheumatic ADs [16-20] suggested the hypothesis that the model epitomized by the rheumatic ADs is highly relevant to explain the plethora of autoantibodies detected in cancer sera. Importantly, PBC as an organ-specific autoimmune disease is characterized by a set of autoantibodies with mitochondrial specificity with ...

AU - McHugh, Neil J. AU - Blackhall, Fiona. AU - Lamb, Janine A. PY - 2018/8/9. Y1 - 2018/8/9. N2 - BACKGROUND: The close temporal association between onset of some connective tissue diseases and cancer suggests a paraneoplastic association. Adult patients with scleroderma with anti-RNA polymerase III autoantibodies and adult patients with dermatomyositis with anti-transcriptional intermediary factor 1 (anti-TIF1) or anti-nuclear matrix protein 2 (anti-NXP2) autoantibodies have a significantly increased risk of developing cancer. Autoantibodies may serve as biomarkers for early detection of cancer and also could be relevant for prediction of responses to immune therapies. We aimed to test whether myositis and scleroderma specific or associated autoantibodies are detectable in individuals with lung cancer.METHODS: Serum ...
Abstract OBJECTIVE/HYPOTHESIS: The aim of this prospective study is to evaluate the possible association between Ménières disease (MD) and autoantibodies. METHODS: Fifty-five patients with definite MD (51 unilateral and 4 bilateral) were matched with 55 patients with unilateral vestibular paresis without cochlear involvement and 55 healthy subjects. Blood samples were collected from all study subjects for the determination of serum TSH, free triiodothyronine, free thyroxine, anti-TSH receptor antibody, antithyroperoxidase antibody, antithyroglobulin antibody and of antibodies to non-organ-specific antigens, namely antinuclear antibodies, antibodies to extractable nuclear antigens and antineutrophilic cytoplasmic antibodies. RESULTS: Thirty-three subjects (60%) of the MD group had 1 or more elevated serum autoantibody levels, both organ and non-organ specific; 16 patients (29.1%) with unilateral vestibular paresis had 1 or more elevated serum autoantibody levels, while 13 healthy subjects ...
Idiotypic cross-reactions were evaluated in 60 polynucleotide-binding monoclonal lupus autoantibodies produced by human-human hybridomas that were derived from seven unrelated patients with SLE. Three antiidiotype reagents were prepared by immunization of rabbits or a mouse with monoclonal autoantibodies from two patients. Binding of the three reagents to their corresponding idiotypes was inhibited by one or more polynucleotides, an indication that the antiidiotypes reacted with the variable regions of the autoantibodies. Each antiidiotype appeared to detect a different idiotypic determinant. Of the 60 monoclonal autoantibodies tested, 40 reacted in one or more competitive immunoassays; 15 reacted with one antiidiotype, 10 reacted with two antiidiotypes and 15 reacted with three antiidiotypes. A monoclonal antiidiotype reagent cross-reacted with autoantibodies from six of the seven patients. The idiotypic cross-reactions of immunoglobulins from unrelated patients suggest that the autoantibodies ...

Fibrillarin, a component of the U3 RNP particle, is a target for the spontaneously arising autoantibodies in human scleroderma and a monoclonal autoantibody (72B9) derived from the autoimmune mouse strain (NZB x NZW) F1. Autoantibodies against fibrillarin can also be induced in H-2s mice by treatment with mercuric chloride (HgCl2). The objective of this study was to compare the spontaneously occurring anti-fibrillarin autoantibody response with the autoantibody response induced by HgCl2 treatment. Immunofluorescence microscopy on human HEp2, mouse 3T3, and Xenopus XIK-2 cells, immunoblotting with use of nuclear extract from human MOLT-4, mouse 3T3, and Xenopus XIK-2 cells, and immunoprecipitation with use of in vitro translation products of RNA transcripts from yeast fibrillarin cDNA were used in this analysis. Both spontaneous and induced autoantibodies displayed common reactivity in that, irrespective of the antigenic source, they gave the same nucleolar immunofluorescence pattern and a ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - A Novel Autoantibody to Plasminogen and Its Characterization in Heymann Nephritis. AU - Makker, Sudesh P. PY - 1994/7. Y1 - 1994/7. N2 - Heymann nephritis (HN) of rat is an experimental model of human membranous glomerulonephropathy (MGN). It is generally accepted that the glomerular lesion of HN results from the binding of antibodies (autoantibodies in active HN and heterologous antibodies in passive HN) to gp330, a receptor of the low-density lipoprotein receptor superfamily located on the glomerular epithelial cell. We have previously shown that plasminogen (plg) is a ligand for gp330. This report shows that in addition to antibodies to receptor, gp330, novel autoantibodies (Aab) to ligand, plg, also develop in the course of HN and accumulate selectively and in parallel with gp330 antibodies in the glomeruli of both active and passive HN. Aab to plg are present in serum and in immunoglobulin G (IgG) eluted from glomeruli of diseased animals with the concentration severalfold ...
Early studies primarily of first-degree relatives followed over time demonstrate that islet cell autoantibodies may predict type 1 diabetes (13). After the development of robust autoantibody assays that are high capacity, precise, and reproducible, considerable data have accumulated to demonstrate that autoantigen-specific antibodies predict type 1 diabetes (14,15). The quest to identify one type of autoantibody as a better predictor than another has failed, because no clear order of appearance has been detected. Rather, several studies taken together suggest that the number of autoantibodies is predictive rather than the order of their appearance (16). This is particularly true for young children, since the age (17,18) as well as sex (19) affect the expression of both insulin and IA-2 autoantibodies (rev. in 2). The diagnostic sensitivity of these two autoantibodies decreases with increasing age. While IAAs have their highest diagnostic sensitivity (∼50-60%) below the age of 10 years (15,18), ...
The present study has three important findings. First, one-third of patients with active TB had elevated serum autoantibodies. The prevalences of their autoantibodies, especially anticardiolipin IgG and anti-Scl-70, were significantly higher than those of the general population.10 Second, consistent with previous studies,1-4 the presence of autoantibodies neither altered the clinical manifestations and radiographic findings of active TB nor changed the risk of developing adverse events during anti-TB treatment. Third, the elevated autoantibody levels returned to normal limits simply by anti-TB treatment and not by immunosuppressive therapy. These findings suggest that increased serum autoantibodies during active TB may not be diagnostic of autoimmune diseases. Clinical correlation and follow-up are still necessary.. Autoantibodies come from a break in self-tolerance whereby fragments of mixed self-antigens and pathogen antigens may induce immune response, as in a mode of epitope spread and ...
Abstract: : Purpose:Glaucoma is worldwide one of the leading causes of blindness. There is evidence that an autoimmune mechanism is involved in a subset of glaucoma patients. The aim of this study was to analyze the autoantibody repertoires in sera of glaucoma patients and healthy subjects. Methods:A total of 100 patients were divided into four groups: healthy volunteers without any ocular disorders (n=25), patients with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG, n=25), ocular hypertension (OHT, n=25), and normal tension glaucoma (NTG, n=25). All groups were matched for age and gender. The sera of patients were testest against western blots of retinal antigens. The autoantibody patterns were digitized and subsequently analyzed by multivariate statistical techniques and artificial neural networks. Results:All patients showed different, complex staining patterns of autoantibodies against retinal antigens. The number of peaks was increased in sera of POAG patients compared to all other groups. Including ...

Insulin Autoantibodies to insulin (IAA) can predict risk of type-1 diabetes or confirm a diagnosis of type-1 diabetes. IAA are most common in children with or at risk for type-1 diabetes.. GAD, GAD65 Autoantibodies to GAD (GADA), like IAA, are also predictive of risk for type-1 diabetes. GAD autoantibodies are present in the majority of adult patients with autoimmune diabetes.. IA-2 Autoantibodies against IA-2 (IA2-A) are the second most common autoantibody in type-1 diabetes. GAD and IA-2 autoantibodies are the most common in type-2 diabetes that also has an autoimmune component.. For children, the number of autoantibodies present is a better predictor of disease risk than the presence of any single antibody.. ...

Autoimmune diseases are characterized by the presence of multiple autoantibodies that react with components of nuclear, cytoplasmic, or surface origin (for review see Nakamura and Tan, 1992; Fritzler, 1997). In clinical medicine, autoantibodies have been used to establish diagnosis, estimate prognosis, follow the progression of a specific autoimmune disease, and, finally, increase our knowledge of the pathophysiology of autoimmunity. In cell biology, autoantibodies have been extremely useful as probes for the identification of novel proteins and isolation of their corresponding genes. Human autoimmune sera have been particularly useful in the study of the eukaryotic nucleus where they have identified a wide range of nuclear antigens, including both single- and double-stranded DNA, RNA, histones, small nuclear RNA-binding proteins, transcription factors, nuclear lamins, heterochromatin-associated proteins, topoisomerase I and II, and centromere proteins (Tan, 1989, 1991; Earnshaw and Rattner, ...

About 60%-90% of type I (insulin-dependent) diabetics have antibody against islet cell cytoplasmic glycoprotein ("islet cell autoantibody") at the time of diagnosis, and many of those initially without this antibody develop it later. This antibody disappears within 2 years after appearance in 85%-90% of type I diabetics. It has also been reported in about 20% of type II diabetics and about 10% of gestational diabetics at time of diagnosis. About 30%-50% of children have autoantibody against insulin (antiinsulin antibody) at time of diagnosis before beginning insulin therapy and some (much less than formerly) develop it after using therapeutic insulin. Some patients have autoantibodies against beta cell surface antigen (beta cell antibodies). Over 95% of type I patients possess the human lymphocyte antigen (HLA) DR3 or DR4. However, at present these autoantibodies and HLAs are not being widely used in clinical medicine or in diagnosis.. ...

We performed a nested case-control analysis within the Finnish Type 1 Diabetes Prediction and Prevention Study birth cohort, carrying HLA-conferred susceptibility to type 1 diabetes (n = 7782). Serum total fatty acid composition was analysed by gas chromatography in 240 infants with islet autoimmunity and 480 control infants at the age of 3 and 6 months. Islet autoimmunity was defined as repeated positivity for islet cell autoantibodies in combination with at least one of three selected autoantibodies. In addition, a subset of 43 infants with primary insulin autoimmunity (i.e. those with insulin autoantibodies as the first autoantibody with no concomitant other autoantibodies) and a control group (n = 86) were analysed. A third endpoint was primary GAD autoimmunity defined as GAD autoantibody appearing as the first antibody without other concomitant autoantibodies (22 infants with GAD autoimmunity; 42 infants in control group). Conditional logistic regression was applied, considering multiple ...
TRAb was measured by a 2° generation method. The Fig. 4 shows the results of TRAb measurements in patients with various newly diagnosed thyroid disorders and in healthy controls. The horizontal dotted line indicates the distinction between the values of TRAb positive and negative (cut-off 1.0 IU / L). It can be seen as patients with Graves disease have almost all of a value above the cut-off while the healthy controls, as well as patients with non-toxic goitre, are all negative TRAb (except one). In patients with autoimmune hypothyroidism, characterized by the presence of thyroglobulin autoantibody (TgAb) and thyroperoxidase autoantibody (TPOAb), there is a low percentage of TRAb (probably type blockers). In summary this study shows an excellent specificity of the method with the ability to discriminate between patients with GD from healthy ones ...

Humans and animals with lupus produce autoantibodies that can cause inflammation, as well as damage cells and organs of ones own body. In particular, antibodies to double-stranded DNA contribute to organ damage. Researchers have long investigated the possibility of blocking the actions of lupus-related autoantibodies to reduce the extent of such damage. Typically, such research is first tested in animals to ensure efficacy and safety before being conducted in humans. Researchers at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research have created a new experimental molecule to test its ability to inhibit lupus-related autoantibody attachment to ds-DNA isolated from mice, as well as to components of kidneys extracted from mice, and to living brain cells of mice. The results of these studies provide hope for the development of more specific, less toxic therapies for lupus. However, more animal research is needed before this molecule can be tested in living humans with lupus ...
Autoantibodies to GAD65 (GAD65Ab) are prominent in type 1 diabetes. These autoantibodies may be present both years before and after the clinical diagnosis of type 1 diabetes and are widely used as a marker for the disease. Recently it has been demonstrated that progression to type 1 diabetes is accompanied by GAD65Ab epitope maturation. Here we examine whether autoantibody maturation processes also progress after the clinical diagnosis of type 1 diabetes. Antibody reactivity to GAD65, GAD67 and GAD65/67 fusion proteins was measured by radioimmunoassays in 62 children with type 1 diabetes. Samples were taken at diagnosis and five years later. While the overall GAD65Ab level declined over time, the epitope pattern was remarkably stable with no significant changes in binding pattern. Loss of GAD65Ab-positivity was associated with significantly lower GAD65Ab indices at diagnosis compared to patients sera that remained GAD65Ab-positive. The decrease in GAD65Ab levels did not correlate to ...

Studies described here show that multiple cancer-specific autoantibodies are present in the sera of patients with breast cancer collected distant from diagnosis or at the time of diagnosis and the combination of autoantibodies can significantly discriminate patients with cancer from controls. We further show that a fraction of these autoantibodies are present in prediagnostic sera and is potentially useful for early detection.. Because of the limited availability of prediagnostic sera, the standard approach for biomarker discovery is to use samples from symptomatic patients and often from patients with advanced disease (19). Established cancer may behave differently from preclinical disease, so it remains unknown whether markers identified from patients with established disease can also apply to samples collected at earlier time points, at the time of diagnosis or even before diagnosis. Investigations in ovarian cancer have shown that none of the biomarker panels that were discovered in ...
Objective. RA patients develop autoantibodies against a spectrum of antigens but their clinical significance is unclear. Using the phenome-wide association study (PheWAS) approach, we examined the association between autoantibodies and clinical subphenotypes of RA. Methods. This study was conducted using a validated electronic medical record (EMR) RA cohort from 2 tertiary care centers. Using a published multiplex bead assay, we measured 36 autoantibodies targeting epitopes implicated in RA. We extracted all ICD-9 codes for each subject and grouped them using a published method into disease categories (PheWAS codes). We tested for the association of each autoantibody grouped by targeted protein with PheWAS codes. For significant associations (false discovery rate [FDR] ≤0.1), we reviewed 50 medical records of subjects with each PheWAS code to determine the positive predictive value (PPV). Results. We studied 1006 RA subjects, mean age 61.0 years (SD 12.9) and 79.0% female. There were 3,568 ...
Preeclampsia is a serious pathologic complication during pregnancy but its pathogenesis remains unclear. We recently demonstrated that production of auto-antibody against angio-tensin (AGN) II type I receptor (AT1-AA) causes hypertension in experimental animals. Current study determined whether AT1-AA is present in pregnant women and if so, to investigate its potential role in the development of preeclampsia. Blood samples were collected from 35 pregnant women (preeclampsia=18, control=17) and AT1-AA was detected. To determine the potential mechanisms by which AT1-AA may contribute to the development of preeclampsia, vasoconstrictive effects of purified AT1-AA was determined in isolated rat arteriae cerebri media and its pro-apoptotic and cytotoxic effect was determined in cultured HUVEC. Compared with the normal pregnant women (week 37 to 39), sera levels of AT1-AA were markedly increased in preeclamptic patients (0.27±0.03 μmol/L vs. 0.023±0.017 μmol/L, P,0.01). In isolated resistant ...

An autoantibody is an antibody (a type of protein) produced by the immune system that is directed against one or more of the individuals own proteins. Many autoimmune diseases (notably lupus erythematosus) are caused by such autoantibodies. Antibodies are produced by B cells in two ways: (i) randomly, and (ii) in response to a foreign protein or substance within the body. Initially, one B cell produces one specific kind of antibody. In either case, the B cell is allowed to proliferate or is killed off through a process called clonal deletion. Normally, the immune system is able to recognize and ignore the bodys own healthy proteins, cells, and tissues, and to not overreact to non-threatening substances in the environment, such as foods. Sometimes, the immune system ceases to recognize one or more of the bodys normal constituents as "self," leading to production of pathological autoantibodies. These autoantibodies attack the bodys own healthy cells, tissues, and/or organs, causing ...
Methods SeroTag utilizes over 7,000 human proteins as antigen collection in bead-based suspension arrays (Luminex FlexMap 3D) to allow for high throughput serum sample processing with high accuracy, followed by standard and advanced data mining procedures. We screened over 4,000 serum samples from patients with autoimmune diseases such as SLE (n= ,500), SSc (n= ,250), RA (n= ,500), and healthy individuals (n= ,350) to confirm known and to discover novel autoantibodies. Recombinant antigens were covalently coupled to magnetic, color coaded beads and serum samples were incubated with 20 multiplex bead mixes each representing hundreds of antigens. Univariate and multivariate statistical analyses were performed to reveal significant antigens and to define correlation of antigens with clinical parameters and amongst themselves. ...
Acharacteristic of systemic autoimmune diseases is the production of high-titer autoantibodies (autoAbs)1 to a variety of self-constituents (1). These autoAbs are important diagnostic markers of disease, and their patterns are specific for particular autoimmune diseases (1). They are also important because autoAbs can be pathogenic under certain circumstances (2)(3)(4). The pathogenic consequences of activated autoreactive B cells are not limited to autoAb production, as B cells also promote T cell activation (5).. Thus, it has been of great interest to understand the origins of autoreactive B cells in autoimmune animals and, conversely, how they are controlled in normal animals. It is possible that intrinsic B cell defects (6)(7)(8) leading to B cell hyperactivity (9)(10) account for the production of autoAbs. In this view, autoAbs are the result of nonspecific B cell activation. On the other hand, an early clue to an important role of autoantigen (autoAg) in the genesis of such B cells in ...
The present study analyzed the clinical, radiographic, and immunologic features of a series of 71 RA patients along a 9-year interval. As a group, there was progressive deterioration in functional capacity and in joint structure. The serum levels of APF and anti-CCP antibodies tended to remain stable while serum levels of rheumatoid factor increased along the 9-year interval. There was no consistent association of autoantibody status at baseline with rate of joint destruction along the 9-year interval. The outcome measure for evaluation of disease severity was the rate of joint destruction as measured by the progression in Sharp index. Therefore, we calculated the difference in Sharp index between the end and the beginning of the study for each patient and tested the correlation of this parameter with the autoantibody status at the beginning of the study. No statistically significant correlation between the baseline autoantibody status and the rate of joint destruction was observed. When a ...
The current study, led by PD Dr. Harald Prüss of Charités Department of Neurology with Experimental Neurology on Campus Charité Mitte and the DZNEs Berlin site, focused on an autoantibody that targets a specific protein on the surface of brain cells. This molecule, known as NMDA receptor, is essential for the interconnection of neurons and normal brain development. "The NMDA receptor antibody is a relatively common autoantibody. Data from blood donations suggest that up to one percent of the general population may carry this particular autoantibody in their blood. The reasons for this are largely unclear," notes PD Dr. Prüss. If this autoantibody reaches the brain, serious inflammations can arise. However, most carriers are free of such symptoms because the blood-brain barrier - a filtering tissue that surrounds the brains blood vessels - is usually hardly penetrable for antibodies. Unless this barrier is damaged or, as with an embryo in early pregnancy, not yet fully developed ...
Results miRNA profiling revealed 10 miRNAs to be differentially expressed between the groups; 2 in pSS vs HC, 7 in nSS vs HC and 1 in both pSS and nSS vs HC. One miRNA was excluded from further analysis after technical validation by single TaqMan microRNA Assay. The other 9 miRNAs were measured in the validation cohort. Surprisingly, 2 miRNAs were validated to be increased in the nSS group as compared to HC (snRNA-U6 and miR-661). Using the data from both cohorts combined, the levels of snRNA-U6 and miR-661 was associated with serum Ig and C4 in the nSS group, but also in the pSS group. This prompted us to investigate miRNA expression in subgroups of pSS patients. snRNA-U6 and miR-661 levels are significantly increased compared to HC in pSS patients negative for autoantibodies. In autoantibody positive pSS patients, levels of snRNA-U6 and miR-661 are comparable to those found in HC and both miRNAs are significantly increased in autoantibody negative patients as compared to autoantibody positive ...
phdthesis{a3c3a368-ef87-45b1-b612-22823f11b3ea, abstract = {Type 1 diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in childhood and adolescence with an increasing incidence worldwide. It is an autoimmune disease with many autoimmune markers, where the zinc transporter 8 autoantibody (ZnT8A) is the most recent autoantibody discovered. The most important genetic susceptibility towards type 1 diabetes is found within the HLA-region on chromosome 6. We showed that all three ZnT8A are common among children and adolescents at type 1 diabetes diagnosis and that 3.4% of the children in Sweden displayed only ZnT8A at diagnosis. Only 7% of the Swedish children were autoantibody negative at diagnosis. Additionally, 0.3% of type 1 diabetes patients in Sweden had an isolated positivity for the islet cell cytoplasm autoantibodies (ICA). This is an autoantibody with an unspecified reaction pattern to most of the other antigens involved in autoantibody formation in type 1 diabetes. The fact that children ...

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women in the United States. While mammography and breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) improve detection of early disease, there remains an unmet need for biomarkers for risk stratification, early detection, prediction, and disease prognosis. Sera from patients with breast cancer contain specific autoantibodies (AAb) to tumor antigens that develop as part of the natural immune response to cancer-associated changes in protein structure and expression. The recent development of proteomic tools for AAb detection, including protein microarrays, reverse-phase protein immunoblots, and phage display have identified a number of potential AAb biomarkers for clinical development. Immune response signatures have been identified that are highly specific, but with variable sensitivities for cancer detection. This review focuses on the detection and application of AAb signatures as biomarkers for breast cancer detection and monitoring.. ...
The stochastic and heterogeneous nature of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) supports a model whereby multiple genetic and/or environmental hits culminate in loss of tolerance and autoantibody production. Consistent with this model, the phenotype of CD45E613R mice that contain a single point mutation in the juxtamembrane wedge of CD45 depends on genetic context. Despite similar dysregulated phosphatase activity in all immune cells, CD45E613R mice on a C57Bl/6 (B6) background have no overt phenotype while BALB/c (BA) mice develop anti-double stranded (ds) DNA antibodies. An unbiased genome-wide screen for modifiers of autoantibody production between CD45E613R B6 and BA mice identified two candidate loci: Wedge Associated Modifier (Wam) 1 on Chromosome (Chr) 9 encompassing tlr9 and Wam2 on Chr 17 encompassing MHC H2. Previous work has shown that the hyporesponsive BA TLR9 allele permits anti-ds DNA antibodies while the B6 TLR9 allele is resistant. Here, we analyze the contribution of the MHC to ...
Zinc transporter 8 (ZnT8), a protein highly specific to pancreatic insulin-producing beta cells, is vital for the biosynthesis and secretion of insulin. ZnT8 autoantibodies (ZnT8A) are among the most recently discovered and least-characterised islet autoantibodies. In combination with autoantibodies to several other islet antigens, including insulin, ZnT8A help predict risk of future type 1 diabetes. Often, ZnT8A appear later in the pathogenic process leading to type 1 diabetes, suggesting that the antigen is recognised as part of the spreading, rather than the initial, autoimmune response. The development of autoantibodies to different forms of ZnT8 depends on the genotype of an individual for a polymorphic ZnT8 residue. This genetic variant is associated with susceptibility to type 2 but not type 1 diabetes. Levels of ZnT8A often fall rapidly after diagnosis while other islet autoantibodies can persist for many years. In this review, we consider the contribution made by ZnT8 to our ...
Autoreactive B cells are associated with the development of several autoimmune diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The low frequency of these cells represents a major barrier to their analysis. Antigen (Ag)-tetramers prepared from linear epitopes represent a promising strategy for the identification of small subsets of antigen-reactive immune cells. This is challenging given the requirement for identification and validation of linear epitopes and the complexity of autoantibody responses, including the broad spectrum of autoantibody specificities and the contribution of isotype to pathogenicity. We therefore tested a two-tiered peptide microarray approach, coupled with epitope mapping of known autoantigens, to identify and characterize autoepitopes using the BXD2 autoimmune mouse model. Microarray results were verified through comparison with established age-associated profiles of autoantigen specificities and autoantibody class switching in BXD2 ...

We demonstrate that there are genetic components that contribute to the risk of T1D and, at the same time, contribute to the development of autoantibodies associated with immune-mediated diseases. These shared genetic factors are replicated from the previous GWAS of autoantibody positivity in European subjects, such as the association for IA-2A with SNPs in the IL27 and IFIH1 loci; the association of TPOA with SNPs in the PTPN22, BACH2 and SH2B3 loci; and the association of PCA with SNPs in the IFIH1 locus (6). At the same time, our results do not replicate other loci reported in the GWAS, yet they suggest novel loci that could contribute to autoantibody positivity and therefore should be investigated in independent populations.. Five non-MHC T1D risk loci (IFIH1, PTPN22, SH2B3, BACH2, and CTLA4) contained SNPs that were consistently and robustly associated with positivity for more than one autoantibody. These loci are known to confer risk of several autoimmune disorders, in varying degrees, ...
Peripheral immune-mediated polyneuropathies (IMPN) are a diverse group of rare neurological illnesses characterized by nerve damage. Leading morphological features are mostly nerve fibre demyelination or combination of axonal damage and demyelination. There has been remarkable progress in the clinical and electrophysiological categorization of acute (fulminant, life-threatening) and chronic (progressive/remitting-relapsing) immune-mediated neuropathies recently. Besides electrophysiological and morphological makers, autoantibodies against glycolipids or paranodal/nodal molecules have been recommended as candidate markers for IMPN. The progress in testing for autoantibodies (autoAbs) to glycolipids such as gangliosides and sulfatide may have significant implications on the stratification of patients and their treatment response. Thus, this topic was reviewed in a presentation held during the 1 st Panhellenic Congress of Autoimmune Diseases, Rheumatology and Clinical Immunology in Portaria, Pelion,
Human autoantibodies specific to either FcεRIα or IgE have been ascribed a central role in up to 30% of CU cases (50). Our former data suggested that cross-linking anti-FcεRIα Abs are also present in healthy individuals (11). We have now cloned and characterized an IgM Ab from a representative human natural Ab repertoire. This anti-FcεRIα Ab, CBMα8, is remarkable, because it originates from human umbilical cord blood and is entirely in germline configuration. The human anti-FcεRIα Abs previously isolated by phage display (from tonsils of children and peripheral blood of CU patients) differ from CBMα8 by several mutations in the L chains and have totally different CDR3s of the H chains. Nevertheless, the germline Ab CBMα8, like the previous Abs, interfered with the binding of IgE to FcεRIα. By means of an IAsys inhibition assay, we have also shown that IVIg, the IgG fraction from plasma of multiple healthy donors (51), contains the epitope specificity of the natural mAb CBMα8. ...
The KRONUS® 3-Screen Islet Cell Autoantibody ELISA Assay Kit is for the simultaneous and non-differential detection of GAD and/or IA-2 and/or ZnT8 autoantibodies in human serum. The Kit depends upon the ability of the autoantibodies to act divalently and form a bridge between the antigens coated on the ELISA plate wells and the 3-screen biotin. Once this bridge is formed, streptavidin peroxidase attached to the colorogenic substrate (TMB) is bound. The 3-screen biotin and absorbance of each well is directly proportional to the amount of autoantibody present. †For Research Use Only. Not for Use in Diagnostic Procedures.. Manufactured Under Assigned Patents and Licenses. ...

Results High expression levels of TLR7 in SLE patients positively correlated with IFN signature and disease activity, but not with BAFF titers. SLE patients with high levels of TLR7 (TLR7hi group) showed an expansion of CD19+CD38highCD24highCD10+ TR B cells. Overall, frequencies of TR B cells positively correlated with the levels of TLR7, but not TLR9. SLE patients, carrying a risk G allele, had increased TLR7 expression and TR cell frequencies, compared to non-risk allele carriers. TLR7hi SLE patients showed increased autoantibody titers and skewing towards Sm/RNP antigens. Upon IFNα priming, TR B cells up-regulated TLR7 and differentiated into plasmablasts in response to TLR7-ligand stimulation. ...
About half of all WAIHA cases will have an autoantibody that reacts with all cells tested, including donor cells. The presence of an IgG autoantibody can be confirmed by elution. Elution is the process by which RBC-bound antibody is removed from the red cells and recovered, being sure that antibody reactivity is maintained so that antibody specificity can be determined. The eluate is usually reactive with all cells tested. Most IgG autoantibodies have an Rh-like specificity, such as anti-e. In order to identify the specific antibody, the laboratory would need to have a supply of rare cells such as Rhnull and D-- cells. Other specificities include those to high incidence antigens or a null phenotype. Examples include autoanti-U, autoanti-Wrb, autoanti-Ena, autoanti-Kpb, and autoanti-Vel ...

Objective: After detection of immunological abnormalities in dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), including autoimmune reactivity against myocytes, attention has been focused on autoimmune mechanisms as potential key elements in DCM pathogenesis. DCM often appeared related to elevated autoantibody (AAB) levels against cardiac proteins including β1-adrenoreceptors. IgG reduction by unselective immunoadsorption (IA) i.e. extracorporeal IgG adsorption to levels at which β1-AABs become nearly undetectable, can be an efficient treatment. Nevertheless, there is controversy on whether β1-AAB removal by IA is indeed the major cause for cardiac improvement. We compared the results of unspecific IA and selective β1-AAB removal.. Methods: In 8/2000-1/2005 DCM patients with LVEF ≤ 30%; and evidence of serum β1-AABs underwent random selection for either unspecific or specific IA which was performed on 5 consecutive days with daily β1-AAB measurements. For unspecific (unselective) IA we used columns ...

Encephalitic syndromes are a common medical emergency. The importance of early diagnosis and appropriate treatment is paramount. If initial investigations for infectious agents prove negative, other diagnoses must be considered promptly. Autoimmune encephalitides are being increasingly recognized as important (and potentially reversible) non-infectious causes of an encephalitic syndrome. We describe four patients with autoimmune encephalitis-3 auto-antibody positive, 1 auto-antibody negative-treated during the last 18 months. A comprehensive review of the literature in this expanding area will be of interest to the infectious diseases, general medical and neurology community.. ...
Autoantibodies targeting extracellular, rather than intracellular, domains of an antigen have a higher probability of being pathogenic by modulating receptor function, which can be studied in vitro and in vivo. However, since epitopes may vary between species, matching epitope targets between human autoantibodies and murine models is important for animal studies. For instance, the majority of patients with anti-MOG antibodies did not recognize conformational intact mMOG [56], whereas epitopes recognized by anti-NMDAR antibodies are similar between the two species [35], or at least share some cross-reactivity as in the case of anti-AQP4 antibodies [62, 134]. Longitudinal studies of autoimmune neurological disorders in humans are necessary to substantiate findings from animal models and determine whether the same mechanisms are relevant to human disease. Based on these results, decisions can be made as to whether the therapies that have proved effective in animal models are translatable to human ...
Several reports have demonstrated this previously unknown link between autoimmune disease and increased susceptibility to infectious diseases. In a study it was found that neutralizing autoantibodies to IFN-y lead to increased risk of mycobacterial infections. Autoantibodies were found to have neutralized IFN-y in whole blood culture and thus prevented production of inflammatory cytokines, TNF-α and IL-12 along with impeding MHC class I upregulation. These things are necessary components of a successful Th1 response to mycobacteria; therefore it was shown that autoantibodies against IFN-y affected the immune systems ability to prevent mycobacteria infection. A few studies on anti-IL-6 autoantibodies indicated that patients with this form of autoantibody lead to increased susceptibility to staphylococcal infection. In one patient it was found that when IL-6 was inhibited, C-reactive protein (CRP) induction was also inhibited, which is a key response factor to staphylococcal infection. It was ...

We had a wonderful meandering conversation about genetics, history and evolution. Everybody was quite excited about canine genetics, the genome has now been sequenced, and the different breeds of dogs have been separated for about 30 generations, each has unique medical problems. SNP linkage between individuals in the strains allows rapid location of the genetic region, and then SNP linkage between strains allows gene identification, as dog haplotypes are quite small. As the conversation turned to evolution against autoimmunity, we were discussing why autoantibody targets are generally evolutionary conserved regions. Olle and myself were saying that immunogenic autoantigens would be selected against where possible, such that only regions with vital function (and thus evolutionarily conserved) would be left as autoantibody targets. This made Chris wonder how much autoimmunity could be altered by evolutionary selection, as it usually occurs after reproductive age. This was quite interesting, ...

In a pilot study that included children at high risk for type 1 diabetes, daily high-dose oral insulin, compared with placebo, resulted in an immune response to insulin without hypoglycemia. According to the researchers, the findings that support the need for a phase 3 trial to determine whether oral insulin can prevent islet autoimmunity and diabetes in high-risk children, according to a study in the April 21 issue of JAMA.. A few specific proteins are often the trigger for immune responses that cause autoimmune diseases. This has led to the experimental use of antigen-specific therapies (using a substance to initiate an immune response) to prevent, stabilize, or reverse immune-related diseases, such as allergies and multiple sclerosis.. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that can be detected in asymptomatic individuals by the presence of islet autoantibodies that develop in children. Antigen-specific therapy using insulin before the development of autoantibodies may induce protective ...

It also provides for substantially purified preparations of specific antigens, namely neuroprotein-1, histone H3 (neuroprotein-2), .beta.-tubulin (neuroprotein-3), neuroprotein-4, neuroprotein-5, and NP-9 antigen which may be used in such diagnostic methods.
Barz D, Friedrich S, Schuller A, Rummler S.. Keywords: Antibody against angiotensin II-R1; Donor-specific-antibody; Eluate; Graft survival; Immunoadsorption Abstract. BACKGROUND:. The influence of ATR-1-autoantibodies on antibody mediated rejection (AMR) is still discussed controversially. Here we demonstrate some aspects as to diagnostics, treatment, clinical relevance and graft outcome.. METHODS:. A total of 27 transplant recipients (6 heart, 16 kidney, 3 lung and 2 multi-organ) suffering from AMR and a control group without transplant (8 pre-Tx, 1 pregnancy and 16 autoimmune and haematological diseases) were studied. In total, 290 IA eluates and the corresponding patient serum samples before and after immunoadsorption (IA) were analysed.. RESULTS:. ATR-1-and ETR-auto-antibodies (aAB) were found only in 4.5% of sera previous to IA treatment by using ELISA, but could be detected in 42% of IA eluates. AB with very high titres (,1:8 to 1:256) in the eluate were found more frequently in heart than ...

Results No anti-D2R antibody-positive patient sera bound to the three extracellular loops, but all patient sera (35/35) targeted the extracellular N-terminus. Overall, patient antibody binding was dependent on two main regions encompassing amino acids 20 to 29, and 23 to 37. Residues 20 to 29 contributed to the majority of binding (77%, 27/35), among which 26% (7/27) sera bound to amino acids R20, P21, and F22, 37% (10/27) patients were dependent on residues at positions 26 and 29, that are different between humans and mice, and 30% (8/27) sera required R20, P21, F22, N23, D26, and A29. Seven patient sera bound to the region 23 to 37 independently of D26 and A29, but most sera exhibited N-glycosylation-independent epitope recognition at N23. Interestingly, no evident segregation of binding pattern according to patient clinical phenotype was observed. ...
The present study tested and confirmed the hypothesis that autoantibodies to aberrant O-glycopeptide epitopes represent a fruitful source of sensitive biomarkers for early detection of cancer. Cancer-associated IgG autoantibodies to several O-glycopeptide epitopes were identified in MUC1, whereas IgG antibodies to peptide epitopes were not detected. The study therefore clearly supports that autoantibody biomarker discovery strategies should include aberrant posttranslational modifications for greatest success. Chemoenzymatic synthesis of cancer-associated O-glycopeptides in combination with a microarray platform was shown to be a feasible strategy for broader analysis of the entire cancer O-glycopeptidome.. Initially, we found an absence of immature nonsialylated MUC1 and MUC16 glycoforms in serum of cancer patients with elevated mucin levels, suggesting that these glycoforms are removed by immune cells or scavenger receptors recognizing immature uncapped glycans. This is in agreement with Varki ...
Tissues donated to JDRF program allow better characterization of islet inflammation in T1D - a key understanding towards stopping the type 1 diabetes disease process.. Seven years ago, JDRF launched the JDRF Network for Pancreatic Organ Donors with Diabetes (nPOD) program to collect and characterize pancreata and related tissues from organ donors with type 1 diabetes (T1D), as well as from those who are autoantibody positive but not insulin dependent. These tissues are then made available to investigators addressing the most fundamental questions related to how T1D develops and progresses. The programs creation grew out of the insight that although ani-mal models for the T1D exist, they differ from the human disease in many key aspects and raised the concern that some data derived from such models may not be applicable to the disease in humans. In fact, even after a century of T1D research we know very little about some of the basics of T1D in people at the cellular level, because of the very ...

Purpose of Review To explore the impact of age on type 1 diabetes (T1D) pathogenesis. Recent Findings Children progress more rapidly from autoantibody positivity to T1D and have lower C-peptide levels compared to adults. In histological analysis of post-mortem pancreata, younger age of diagnosis is associated with reduced numbers of insulin containing islets and a hyper-immune CD20hi infiltrate. Moreover compared to adults, children exhibit decreased immune regulatory function and increased engagement and trafficking of autoreactive CD8+ T cells, and age-related differences in β cell vulnerability may also contribute to the more aggressive immune phenotype observed in children. To account for some of these differences, HLA and non-HLA genetic loci that influence multiple disease characteristics, including age of onset, are being increasingly characterized. Summary The exception of T1D as an autoimmune disease more prevalent in children than adults results from a combination of immune, ...
Blood is the optimal source for the diagnostic screening of large human populations for non-invasive markers. Serum and plasma are easily obtained, and moreover blood circulation facilitates the contact with every body tissue, including representative tumor antigens. However, tumor leakage antigens are probably present at the very low range of concentration in plasma, and they probably suffer from extensive proteolysis in a relatively short period (44). Therefore, the search for tumor-specific antigens in blood is a complicated task. Approaches based on a peptide search ("peptidomics"), such as SELDI, are prone to artifacts due to variability issues and require ultraextensive standardization for every step of the procedure, rendering them unsuitable for routine clinical use.. Antibodies are very stable serum molecules with a long tradition of use in immunoassays, which facilitates their standardization. Autoantibodies present in the serum of patients appear to be a promising alternative for ...

What is Lupus?. Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). In lupus, something goes wrong with your immune system which is the part of the body that fights off viruses, bacteria, and germs. Normally our immune system produces proteins called antibodies that protect the body from these invaders. Autoimmune means your immune system cannot tell the difference between these foreign invaders and your bodys healthy tissues ("auto" means "self") and creates autoantibodies that attack and destroy healthy tissue. These autoantibodies cause inflammation, pain, and damage to various parts of the body ...
When the host s blood is drawn, the antibodies are present; scientists can use that blood to create antiserum to cure the illness in others. Additionally, injecting someone with a weak or dead version of a virus may trigger the slow response production of antibodies that will protect the host against a full-blown attack of that virus. Additional research has lead to the ability to genetically alter mouse antibodies for use in humans. Use of antibodies to prevent, and cure disease by artificial means is called antibody therapy ...
