The role of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in the induction of type II mixed cryoglobulinemia (MCII) and the possible establishment of related lymphoproliferative disorders, such as B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (B-NHL), is well ascertained. However, the molecular pathways involved and the factors predisposing to the development of these HCV-related extrahepatic complications deserve further consideration and clarification. To date, several host- and virus-related factors have been implicated in the progression to MCII, such as the virus-induced expansion of selected subsets of B-cell clones expressing discrete immunoglobulin variable (IgV) gene subfamilies, the involvement of complement factors and the specific role of some HCV proteins. In this review, we will analyze the host and viral factors taking part in the development of MCII in order to give a general outlook of the molecular mechanisms implicated.

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is associated with the B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders mixed cryoglobulinemia (MC) and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. We have previously reported that HCV(+)MC(+) patients have clonal expansions of hypermutated, rheumatoid factor-bearing marginal zone-like IgM(+)CD27(+) peripheral B cells using the V(H)1-69 gene. Here we coupled transcriptional profiling with immunophenotypic and functional studies to ascertain these cells role in MC pathogenesis. Despite their fundamental role in MC disease, these B cells have overall transcriptional features of anergy and apoptosis instead of neoplastic transformation. Highly up-regulated genes include SOX5, CD11C, galectin-1, and FGR, similar to a previously described FCRL4(+) memory B-cell subset and to an exhausted, anergic CD21(low) memory B-cell subset in HIV(+) patients. Moreover, HCV(+)MC(+) patients clonal peripheral B cells are enriched with CD21(low), CD11c(+), FCRL4(high), IL-4R(low) memory B cells. In contrast to the functional,

Cryoglobulinaemia may cause cutaneous vasculitis and glomerulonephritis, potentially leading to end stage renal failure. An important proportion of cryoglobulinaemias are secondary to hepatitis C virus infection. Emerging antiviral treatment options offer a chance for causal therapy of these cases of cryoglobulinaemia. This review summarises the classification and clinical and therapeutic aspects of cryoglobulinaemic vasculitis and glomerulonephritis.. ...
BACKGROUND:Mixed cryoglobulinaemia (MC), a systemic vasculitis associated with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in ,90% of cases, is frequently complicated by multiple organ involvement. The prevalence of thyroid disorders in MC has not yet been studied. AIM:To investigate the prevalence and clinical features of thyroid involvement in patients with HCV-associated MC (HCV + MC). DESIGN:Case-control study. METHODS:HCV + MC patients (n = 93, 17 men and 76 women, mean +/- SD age 63 +/- 10 years, mean disease duration 14 +/- 7 years) consecutively referred to the Rheumatology Unit were matched by sex and age (+/- 2 years) to (i) 93 patients with chronic C hepatitis (CH) without MC and (ii) 93 healthy (HCV-negative) controls from the local population. Measurements included prevalence of hypo- or hyperthyroidism, thyroid autoantibodies, thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer. RESULTS:By McNemars chi(2) test, the following thyroid abnormalities were significantly more frequent in HCV + MC patients than in ...
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes hepatitis, liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma, and may also induce type II mixed cryoglobulinemia syndrome (MC), a disease characterized by clonal B-cell lymphoproliferations that can evolve into non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL). Interleukin-1 (IL-1) is a cytokine that plays an important role in initiating the cascade of events of immunoinflammatory responses through costimulation of T lymphocytes, B-cell proliferation, induction of adhesion molecules and stimulation of the production of other inflammatory cytokines. The role of IL-1 in immunoinflammatory responses is highlighted by the presence of endogenous regulators (IL-1 receptor antagonist, soluble receptors type 1 and II, human IL-1 accessory protein) that, when secreted into the blood stream may serve as endogenous regulators of IL-1 action. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether abnormalities in the blood levels of IL-1β IL-1 receptor antagonist, soluble IL-1 receptor type II and human IL-1 ...

I have been asked to share my story many times and I always struggle to start writing. I am a writer, researcher and communicator yet I struggle to tell my story, why? My block stems from my belief that I am not defined by my body or by my job.. I am a 41 year old woman living with a rare chronic illness called Essential Mixed Cryoglobulinemia (EMC). I have been formally diagnosed with EMC since I was 26 years old but I believe that I have had this disease since I was a young child.. I had 6 broken ankles between fourth and eight grades; all of them happened during the winter months when I was exercising, walking or using stairs. But in sharp contrast to my athletic days there were days I could do nothing because I was in so much pain or so tired. I lay in bed and slept to recover. My mama supported me with unquestioning faith. When I hurt or was tired I told her and she believed me.. After graduating college I was misdiagnosed with Progressive Systemic Scleroderma. I began to take ...
The extrahepatic manifestations of hepatitis C were reviewed in the November issue of Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine. The review points out that cryoglobulinemia is the most strongly associated manifestation. Most cases of what was formerly called essential mixed cryoglobulinemia are in fact due to hepatitis C. Most patients with circulating cryoglobulins are asymptomatic, with about 10% manifesting the typical features of purpura, arthralgia, renal disease and neuropathy, according to the review ...

We sought to follow immunological markers of the humoral and cellular immune response and to compare these markers with standard measures of inflammatory activity-for example, ESR-during follow up of the induction of remission with interferon α. As sIL2r, sICAM-1, and sCD30 have not previously been followed in HCV associated CV, this study may also have shed more light on the pathogenetic mechanisms involved in this vasculitis. In this study, we found a significant reduction in the clinical measures (BVAS and DEI), cryoglobulinaemia, RF, sIL2r, sICAM-1, and sCD30 during six months of interferon α treatment in eight patients with HCV associated CV. Levels of complement C3c significantly increased during that period. All patients achieved either a complete or partial remission of their vasculitis. ESR and levels of complement C4 and CH50 did not change significantly. Both clinical measures (BVAS and DEI) correlated significantly with levels of C3c and sCD30. Although these findings were confined ...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is the major cause of mixed cryoglobulinaemia (MC), an immune complex (IC)-mediated systemic vasculitis mainly involving the small blood vessels. The precise mechanism of cryoprotein production is currently unknown. HCV virions and non-enveloped core protein participate in the formation of cold-insoluble ICs. Cryoglobulinaemic patients represent a distinct HCV-infected population, in that significant HCV enrichment of lymphoid cells is accompanied by evidence of productive virus infection and increased frequency of B cells. Liver, the major target organ of HCV, is the site of accumulation of inflammatory infiltrates that shares many architectural features with lymphoid tissue and reflects a distorted homeostatic balance between factors that enhance cellular recruitment, proliferation and retention, and those that decrease cellularity (cell death and emigration). There is now overwhelming evidence of a direct contribution to B-cell growth and survival through ...
This study aimed to delineate the clinical spectrum of CN in a large series of patients diagnosed with clinical criteria. Although nerve biopsy is the gold standard for diagnosis of CN,4 we think that the diagnosis can be determined confidently in most patients using clinical criteria, encompassing the entire spectrum of CN, including the mild forms of neuropathy. The use of nerve biopsy, which is an invasive procedure, should be restricted to patients with severe and/or progressive forms, who may require aggressive treatment.. In our study the clinical features of patients with or without comorbidity were quite similar. This suggests that cryoglobulinaemia usually has a distinct impact on neuropathic manifestations, even in the presence of concurrent diseases. Our data showed that in most of our cases CN was a sensory neuropathy and only rarely a mononeuritis multiplex. It mainly affected women in the sixth and seventh decades, and it was the initial manifestation of mixed cryoglobulinaemia in ...

Ferri and colleagues [2] showed the presence of HCV infection in 17 patients (30%) of 50 unselected patients with B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Cryoglobulinemia was detected in 8% of these patients. This association is particularly significant compared with the prevalence of HCV infection in the healthy Italian population (1.3%). Pozzato and associates [3] showed a high prevalence of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in patients with cryoglobulinemia and HCV infection. The presence of viral genome in peripheral lymphocytes [4] suggests that the HCV genome is directly involved in the lymphoproliferative process that leads to lymphoma ...
Our recent finding suggests that B cells contribute to liver fibrosis through hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) activation. While antibodies produced by the activated intrahepatic B cells contribute to autoimmunity is not known, mixed cryoglobulinemia and other B cell disorders are the leading extrahepatic manifestations of advanced liver diseases in humans. Here, our aim was to determine whether increased antibody production during liver fibrosis could potentially lead to systemic autoimmunity by production of autoantibodies and immune complexes (IC). We studied the role of B cells in autoimmunity using a carbon tetrachloride (CCl4)-induced mouse model of fibrosis and a genetically engineered multidrug resistance gene 2 knock out (Mdr2-/-) mice, which constitutively develop progressive liver fibrosis. In both fibrosis models, the frequency of B cells in the liver was elevated and B cells exhibited increased state of activation as measured by CD44 and CD86 expressions, constitutive IgG production ...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection frequently causes B-cell lymphoproliferative disease and mixed cryoglobulinemia (MC) that can progress to non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). In these studies, the investigators examine B cells in these patients and show that B-cell clonal expansion is common in HCV patients, likely representing a precursor stage to the development of MC and NHL.. ...
1 site; and 6) renal disorder. Additional criteria: 1) typical biopsy findings at site(s) of involvement and 2) angiogram evidence of occlusion in one or more small to medium sized arteries. The diagnosis of secondary cryofibrinogenemia also requires evidence for the cited infectious, malignant, premalignant vasculitis, and autoimmune disorders while the diagnosis of primary cryofibriongenemia requires a lack of evidence for 1) the cited associated disorders, 2) other vascular occlusive diseases, and 3) cryoglobulinemia. Studies on the treatment of cryofibrinoginemic disease have involved relatively few patients, are limited primarily to case reports, and differ based on whether the disease is primary or secondary. In all cases of cryofibrinogenemic disease, however, patients should avoid the exposure of afflicted body parts to cold weather or other environmental triggers of symptoms and avoid using cigarettes or other tobacco products. In severe cases, these individuals also risk developing ...

Waldenströms macroglobulinaemia is an uncommon, low grade, small cell lymphoma with monoclonal IgM production. This protein accounts for the increased plasma viscosity often seen in this disease, and causes some of the most frequent symptoms. Other less common protein complications include cold agglutinin haemolytic anaemia, peripheral neuropathy, amyloidosis, and cryoglobulinaemia.5. The term cryoglobulinaemia refers to the presence in the serum of one or more immunoglobulins that precipitate reversibly at a temperature below 37°C. According to Brouet et al,4 cryoglobulins can be classified on the basis of their immunoglobulin composition as type I, consisting of a monoclonal immunoglobulin alone; type II, as a mixture of monoclonal and polyclonal immunoglobulins; and type III, consisting of polyclonal immunoglobulins. They are found in small quantities in normal serum,6 but in large concentrations in many pathological conditions. Whereas type III cryoglobulinaemia is mainly noted as the ...

Cryoglobulins are single or mixed immunoglobulins that undergo reversible precipitation at low temperatures. Several types of cryoglobulins have been identified, and the potential clinical manifestations vary by cryoglobulin type.
Delayed and variable antibody responses to HCV make it difficult to diagnose acute HCV infection reliably. Immunoglobulin (Ig)M and IgG anti-HCV may be observed simultaneously as disease persists. IgM plays a key role in mixed cryoglobulinemia (MC), an immune complex disease strongly associated with persistent HCV infection. In MC, clonal or oligoclonal IgM rheumatoid factors facilitate the deposition of immune complexes in small blood vessels and tissue, leading to inflammation, complement activation and tissue damage. Clonally expanded IgM(+)κ(+) B-cells expressing rheumatoid factor-like IgM are abundant in many HCV patients with MC. The observation that identical or similar IgM antibodies are expressed in different patients clonally expanded B-cells supports the hypothesis that MC is driven by antigen-specific B-cell activation, rather than polyclonal B-cell activation or HCV replication in B-cells. More study is required to identify the antigens that drive the development of MC.
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is associated with the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (1) and causes lymphoproliferative disorders, including mixed cryoglobulinemia and putatively non-Hodgkins B cell lymphoma (2, 3). Chromosomal abnormalities are common in the PBMCs of hepatitis C patients as in most cancers (4). Previously, we have demonstrated that HCV infection induces a mutator phenotype by causing dsDNA breaks (DSBs) (5). We have further reported that HCV induces inducible NO synthase (iNOS) mRNA expression and enhances NO production through the action of the viral structural protein core and nonstructural protein (NS)3, and that NO is responsible for DSBs in most cellular genes (6). To identify the source of reactive oxygen species (ROS), our previous publication (7) showed that ROS is generated from mitochondrial damage-induced oxidative burst, leading to ROS generation. Accumulation of DSBs in HCV-infected cells suggests that a HCV-induced oxidative environment may overwhelm ...
Yes. Extracardiac manifestations of subacute bacterial endocarditis (SBE) may be due to circulating cytokines, deposition of immune complexes, or embolic phenomena.

This recently recognized variant of PAN52 is defined by inflammation that is largely confined to smaller vessels than in PAN - arterioles, capillaries and postcapillary venules. Angiograms are correspondingly normal. Major organ infarction is rare, glomerulonephritis is universal, and there is a high frequency of pulmonary hemorrhage. MPA is considerably more common than classic PAN and it is a considerably more common cause of a pulmonary-renal syndrome than Goodpastures syndrome. A forme-fruste of MPA is characterized exclusively by glomerulonephritis. Evidence of hepatitis B infection is usually absent. In contrast to classic PAN as well as such small vessel vasculitides as cryoglobulinemic vasculitis and Henoch-Schönlein purpura, there is little or no evidence of immune deposits. Fifty to 80% of patients with MPA have circulating ANCA - usually myeloperoxidase (perinuclear or p-ANCA)(see WG), a rare phenomenon in classic PAN.

Introduction: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) represents a major health concern, as nearly 3 million people become newly infected by this pathogen annually. The majority of infected individuals fail to clear the virus, and chronicity is established. Chronic HCV patients are at high risk for liver disease, ranging from mild fibrosis to cirrhosis and severe hepatocellular carcinoma. Over the last few years, the development of multiple direct acting antivirals (DAA) have revolutionized the HCV infection treatment, demonstrating cure rates higher than 90%, and showing less side effects than previous interferon-based regimens. Areas covered: Besides liver, HCV infection affects a variety of organs, therefore inducing diverse extrahepatic manifestations. This review covers clinical, experimental, and epidemiological publications regarding systemic manifestations of HCV, as well as recent studies focused on the effect of DAA in such conditions. Expert commentary: Though further research is needed; available ...
