Autoinflammatory diseases are a relatively new category of illnesses caused by disorders of one arm of the immune system. Many of these diseases are characterized by recurrent fevers, rash, chest and abdominal pain, and evidence of systemic inflammation on blood tests; these manifestations often mimic infectious or other illnesses, and it may take several years for the diagnosis to be made.. Most autoinflammatory diseases are genetic (inherited), start in childhood, and persist throughout adult life. These diseases are often present in several members of a family. Other autoinflammatory diseases appear to be acquired, perhaps due to the interplay of genetic and environmental factors, and can present at any time during childhood or adulthood.. The list of autoinflammatory diseases continues to grow every month. Here is a list of the autoinflammatory diseases as they stand so far:. ...

Objective Familial Mediterranan Fever can be an hereditary autoinflammatory disease that displays with repeated febrile poly and episodes serositis. and 6 times at least for six months. These five sufferers had no shows of attack through the pursuing observation. Conclusion Dapsone could control episodic attacks of FMF in 50% of cases. It might be considered AZD8055 as an alternative therapy in FMF cases not responding to colchicine. Keywords: Dapsone Familial Mediterranan Fever Periodic Fever Children Introduction Famlial mediterranean fever (FMF) is usually a genetic disease characterized by recurrent painful attacks of fever and polyserositis usually peritonitis pleuritis and arthritis. A typical attack can be prevented with regular daily administration of colchicine in the most patients[1]. However about ten percent of patients do not respond to colchicine or are completely resistant to the drug[2]. There is no known option or adjunct to colchicine therapy although non-steroidal ...

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

As one of the systemic autoinflammatory diseases (SAIDs), the nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain-like receptor protein (NLRP)12 autoinflammatory disease (NLRP12-AD) is an autosomal dominant disorder associated with NLRP12 mutation. SAIDs have been hardly reported in the Chinese population, and NLRP12-AD has been reported only in Caucasians. We report the first case series of NLRP12-AD in the Chinese population coupled with literature review. Three Han Chinese adult patients with clinical phenotype suggestive of NLRP12-AD carrying NLRP12 variants were treated by the authors in 2015. Their phenotype and genotype were carefully studied. A PubMed search for SAIDs was conducted between January, 1990 and January, 2016, and we focused on NLRP12-AD. All three adult patients developed periodic disease in adulthood. They presented with recurrent fever (n = 3), polyarthralgia (n = 3), myalgia (n = 3), urticaria (n = 2), lymphadenopathy (n = 2), and erythema nodosa (n = 1). All patients carry the ...
One of the most common autoinflammatory syndromes occurring in children is called PFAPA (periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis, adenitis), which is a self-limited and generally benign disease of younger children.. PFAPA causes fevers lasting a few days in predictably regular intervals and can be associated with a sore throat, swollen lymph nodes and sores in the mouth. Children are generally well between episodes.. Autoinflammatory syndromes are not contagious but can often be mistaken for a virus. ...
The importance of actin dynamics in the activation of the inflammasome is becoming increasingly apparent. IL-1β, which is activated by the inflammasome, is known to be central to the pathogenesis of many monogenic autoinflammatory diseases. However, evidence from an autoinflammatory murine model indicates that IL-18, the other cytokine triggered by inflammasome activity, is important in its own right. In this model, autoinflammation was caused by mutation in the actin regulatory gene WDR1 We report a homozygous missense mutation in WDR1 in two siblings causing periodic fevers with immunodeficiency and thrombocytopenia. We found impaired actin dynamics in patient immune cells. Patients had high serum levels of IL-18, without a corresponding increase in IL-18-binding protein or IL-1β, and their cells also secreted more IL-18 but not IL-1β in culture. We found increased caspase-1 cleavage within patient monocytes indicative of increased inflammasome activity. We transfected HEK293T cells with ...
Autoinflammatory diseases in dogs are characterized by complex disease processes with varying clinical signs. In Shar-Pei, signs of inflammation including fever and arthritis are known to be related with a breed-specific predisposition for Shar-Pei Autoinflammatory Disease (SPAID). Clinical and histopathological examinations of two severely SPAID-affected Shar-Pei revealed signs of inflammation including fever, arthritis, and perivascular and diffuse dermatitis in both dogs. A multifocal accumulation of amyloid in different organs was found in one SPAID-affected case. Whole genome sequencing resulted in 37 variants, which were homozygous mutant private mutations in SPAID-affected Shar-Pei. Nine SNVs with predicted damaging effects and three INDELs were further investigated in 102 Shar-Pei affected with SPAID, 62 unaffected Shar-Pei and 162 controls from 11 different dog breeds. The results showed the missense variant MTBP:g.19383758G | A in MTBP to be highly associated with SPAID in Shar-Pei. In the

The autoinflammatory diseases, also known as periodic fever syndromes, are disorders of innate immunity which can be inherited or acquired and which cause recurrent, self-limiting, seemingly spontaneous episodes of systemic inflammation and fever in the absence of autoantibody production or infection. There has been much recent progress in elucidating their aetiologies and treatment. With the exception of familial Mediterranean fever, which is common in certain populations, autoinflammatory diseases are mostly rare but should not be overlooked in the differential diagnosis of recurrent fevers since DNA diagnosis and effective therapies are available for many of them.
Spleen tyrosine kinase (Syk) is involved in the development of the adaptive immune system and has been recognized as being important in the function of additional cell types, including platelets, phagocytes, fibroblasts, and osteoclasts, and in the generation of the inflammasome. Preclinical studies presented compelling evidence that Syk inhibition may have therapeutic value in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and other forms of arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, autoimmune cytopenias, and allergic and autoinflammatory diseases. In addition, Syk inhibition may have a place in limiting tissue injury associated with organ transplant and revascularization procedures. Clinical trials have documented exciting success in the treatment of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune cytopenias, and allergic rhinitis. While the extent and severity of side effects appear to be limited so far, larger studies will unravel the risk involved with the clinical benefit.

Deficiency of interleukin-36 receptor antagonist (DITRA) is a life threatening monogenic autoinflammatory disease caused by loss of function mutations in the IL36RN gene. Affected patients develop recurrent episodes of generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP) with systemic inflammation and fever. We here review and analyze the literature on pediatric DITRA patients who have been treated by biologicals targeting inflammatory cytokines. A database research was performed to identify all relevant articles on pediatric DITRA patients treated with biologicals. According to defined response criteria therapeutic efficacy was analyzed. Our literature research revealed 12 pediatric patients with DITRA who have received treatment with biologicals and we add a further not yet reported patient. Out of these 13 patients 10 were homozygous including 6 with the p.Leu27Pro, 3 with the p.Arg10 Argfs* and 1 with the p.Thr123Met mutation. 3 patients were compound heterozygous. In total 28 flares were treated with biological
article{2120325, abstract = {Convincing evidence now indicates that viruses are associated with type 1 diabetes (T1D) development and progression. Human enteroviruses (HEV) have emerged as prime suspects, based on detection frequencies around clinical onset in patients and their ability to rapidly hyperglycaemia trigger in the non-obese diabetic (NOD) mouse. Whether or not HEV can truly cause islet autoimmunity or, rather, act by accelerating ongoing insulitis remains a matter of debate. In view of the diseases globally rising incidence it is hypothesized that improved hygiene standards may reduce the immune systems ability to appropriately respond to viral infections. Arguments in favour of and against viral infections as major aetiological factors in T1D will be discussed in conjunction with potential pathological scenarios. More profound insights into the intricate relationship between viruses and their autoimmunity-prone host may lead ultimately to opportunities for early intervention ...

Some physicians say that the challenge of being educated as a doctor is similar to mastering a foreign language. Its certainly true that ones vocabulary expands tremendously in medical school. To take the analogy a little further, languages and medical knowledge are both alive, meaning that they continuously change. I graduated from medical school in 1975. One word never mentioned was autoinflammatory. What is the distinction between autoinflammatory and autoimmune? Why is the concept of autoinflammatory relatively new? How does autoinflammatory apply to ankylosing spondylitis and related diseases?. To address these questions, I need to make each reader both a medical historian and a clinical immunologist. So be prepared for some complicated background information.. The major responsibility of the immune system is to protect you from danger such as a bacterial or viral infection. This is not a simple task. Your body plays host to trillions of bacteria. You also allow yeasts and a number of ...
The systemic autoinflammatory disorders (SAIDs) or periodic fever syndromes are disorders of innate immunity, which can be inherited or acquired. They are almost all very rare and easily overlooked; typically, patients will have seen multiple specialities prior to diagnosis, so a high level of clinical suspicion is key. It is important to note that these are high-value diagnoses as the majority of these syndromes can be very effectively controlled, dramatically improving quality of life and providing protection against the development of irreversible complications such as AA amyloidosis. In this article, we take an overview of SAIDs and look at the common features; in Part 2, we take a more in-depth look at the better recognized or more dermatologically relevant conditions ...
Within the centuries the idea of recurrent fevers has mainly been associated with malaria but many other fevers such as typhoid and diphtheria were cause for concern. however the pathogenesis is likely to Rabbit polyclonal to APLP2. be multifactorial and the diagnostic-therapeutic approach is strictly clinical. The aged fever tree paradigm developed to describe fevers caused by malaria has been revisited here to describe todays periodic fevers from the periodic fever adenitis pharyngitis aphthae syndrome to the more rare autoinflammatory diseases. This model may allow us to place cases that are yet to be identified which are likely to be of multifactorial origin. PHA-793887 gene may display attenuated phenotypes resembling more PFAPA than FMF making it difficult to definitely confirm the diagnosis of FMF[28]. A similar behavior is also described when talking about other periodic fever syndromes such as TRAPS. Some genetic variants for instance fairly common in the overall population may possess ...
Autoinflammatory syndromes are often the result of genetic mutations that ultimately compromise neutrophils, macrophages and other cells of the innate immune system. Rather than showering sufferers with broad immunosuppressives, a more satisfactory response can frequently be obtained using select anti-inflammatory drugs like anti-TNF or anti-IL-1β. A similar inappropriate innate activation is now commonly observed in susceptible individuals who have progressed to acute respiratory distress after SARS-CoV-2 infection. In trying to fight back against a pathogen surveillance system that has gone haywire, many are now asking how we might do better.. One way to try to finesse a stubborn immune system is to unplug specific subcellular signaling pathways using kinase inhibitors. Small-molecule inhibitors of various immune-specific kinases, including JAKs, IRAK4, RIPKs, BTK, SYK and TPL2, are now in the clinic. A paper recently published in Nature Reviews summarizes the current state of the art in ...

The clinical use of biologic agents to modulate specific inflammatory pathways has grown exponentially in the past decade. Given the clear overlap in the pathways that are critical in the control of microbial pathogens and those that drive pathologic autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases, it is not surprising that therapeutic blockade of cytokines for the treatment of autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases could result in severe infectious complications. This is exemplified by our experience with TNF-α antagonists, including etanercept, adalimumab, and infliximab. Postmarketing data revealed a dramatic increase in the number of cases of M. tuberculosis reactivation related to anti-TNF-α treatment (60, 61). Given that inflammasome pathways play such a critical role in the control of numerous pathogens and that a number of pathogens themselves have developed strategies to specifically evade this innate immune pathway, it seems likely that blockade of IL-1β would be accompanied by a ...

Macrophage actin-associated tyrosine phosphorylated proteins (MAYP)/PSTPIP2, a PCH proteins, is mixed up in regulation of macrophage motility. (WT) cells. mice portrayed elevated circulating degrees of many cytokines, including MCP-1; their macrophages exhibited changed cytokine creation in vitro. These scholarly studies claim that MAYP plays an RICTOR anti-inflammatory role in macrophages. Introduction Autoinflammatory illnesses are systemic circumstances involving evidently unprovoked irritation in the lack of autoantibody- and antigenic-specific T cells. A substantial proportion of the illnesses is due to one gene mutations. Furthermore, the mutated gene continues to be to become uncovered in a genuine amount of Mendelian inherited autoinflammatory diseases.1 Identifying the Avasimibe genes involved is an initial stage toward elucidating the pathways mixed up in inflammatory procedures underlying these illnesses. Among the genes defined as causal may be the gene encoding the TNF receptor ...
The arrival of next-generation sequencing technologies into clinics has unveiled new mechanistic pathways that lead to the discovery of novel autoinflammatory phenotypes that lead to excessive innate immune responses and overlapping adaptive immune dysfunction [10]. These are the deficiency of adenosine deaminase 2 (DADA2) and STING-associated vasculopathy with onset in infancy (SAVI) that share characteristics with autoimmune disease and will be also reviewed in this article. Deciphering the underlying genetic cause of a suspected autoinflammatory disease may help to understand the molecular pathways that drive clinical phenotypes, some aspects of inflammation in autoimmunity and consequently to inspire further research for novel treatment targets looking forward the best therapeutic treatment option.. In fact, genetic defects are fortunately very rare situations, but these extreme presentations are excellent opportunities to learn about how molecules really work. Both PID that involves ...

The Autoinflammatory Alliance is a non-profit dedicated to increasing awareness, care and treatment for patients with Cryopyrin-Associated Periodic Syndromes, including: NOMID/CINCA, Muckle-Wells (MWS) Familial Cold Autoinflammatory Syndromes (FCAS), and other autoinflammatory diseases.
Autoinflammatory multisystem diseases are a group of diseases that are characterized by recurrent episodes of systemic inflammation as well as organ specific inflammation that can involve the skin, eyes, joints, bones, serosal surfaces, inner ear, and brain. The prominent role of IL-1 in the pathogenesis of these disorders has first become evident through the discovery of mutations in CIAS1 causing the cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS) including the most severe presentation Neonatal Onset Multisystem Inflammatory Disease (NOMID). Over the years we identified additional autoinflammatory diseases including DIRA (Deficiency of IL-1 Receptor Antagonist), a disease that is caused by mutations in IL1RN. Therapy with anakinra, the IL-1 receptor antagonist, can be life-saving. We also study additional rare diseases not IL-1 mediated including CANDLE (chronic atypical neutrophilic dermatosis with lipodystrophy and elevated temperatures) caused by mutations in proteasome components, and ...

Cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome (CAPS) is a group of rare, heterogeneous autoinflammatory disease characterized by interleukin 1β-mediated systemic inflammation and clinical symptoms involving skin, joints, central nervous system, and eyes. It encompasses a spectrum of three clinically overlapping autoinflammatory syndromes including familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome (FCAS, formerly termed familial cold-induced urticaria), the Muckle-Wells syndrome (MWS), and neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID, also called chronic infantile neurologic cutaneous and articular syndrome or CINCA) that were originally thought to be distinct entities, but in fact share a single genetic mutation and pathogenic pathway. The syndromes within CAPS overlap clinically, and patients may have features of more than one disorder. In a retrospective cohort of 136 CAPS patients from 16 countries, the most prevalent clinical features were fever (84% of cases, often with concurrent constitutional ...

This thesis focuses on three paediatric autoinflammatory diseases in Sweden today; familial Mediterranean fever (FMF), periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis and cervical adenitis (PFAPA) and synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis (SAPHO). In addition to describing autoinflammation with reference to these diseases, the thesis explores the concept of autoinflammatory disease by examining four existing definitions. A modified definition is then proposed in the light of this analysis. The aim of the first study (paper I) was to characterize FMF in western Sweden. Patients with autoinflammatory diseases were continuously registered at five hospitals and case records were analysed retrospectively. Population data on immigration were retrieved from Statistics Sweden. Thirty-seven patients with FMF were identified in the records from the years 2000 to 2008. For the majority of patients, disease onset occurred during childhood. In western Sweden, the prevalence of FMF among ...
Pyrin responds to pathogen signals and loss of cellular homeostasis by forming an inflammasome complex that drives the cleavage and secretion of interleukin-1β (IL-1β). Mutations in the B30.2/SPRY domain cause pathogen-independent activation of pyrin and are responsible for the autoinflammatory disease familial Mediterranean fever (FMF). We studied a family with a dominantly inherited autoinflammatory disease, distinct from FMF, characterized by childhood-onset recurrent episodes of neutrophilic dermatosis, fever, elevated acute-phase reactants, arthralgia, and myalgia/myositis. The disease was caused by a mutation in MEFV, the gene encoding pyrin (S242R). The mutation results in the loss of a 14-3-3 binding motif at phosphorylated S242, which was not perturbed by FMF mutations in the B30.2/SPRY domain. However, loss of both S242 phosphorylation and 14-3-3 binding was observed for bacterial effectors that activate the pyrin inflammasome, such as Clostridium difficile toxin B (TcdB). The S242R ...
The cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome (CAPS) is an autosomal dominant autoinflammatory disease characterized by fever, skin rash, and joint involvement with acute inflammatory response. The genetic defect involves the NLRP3 gene that encodes cryopyrin and leads to an abnormal production of interleukin-1 (IL-1). Therefore, anti-IL-1 treatment represents an effective therapy. One of the most severe manifestations of the disease is secondary amyloidosis that causes renal failure. We present a patient with CAPS who underwent renal transplantation for renal insufficiency caused by amyloidosis. The function of the transplanted kidney deteriorated because of the late administration of IL-1 receptor antagonist, anakinra. This case may indicate the importance of early initiation of anti-IL-1 treatment in CAPS patients who have undergone kidney transplantation. ...

Autosomal dominant mutations in NLRP3 in humans leads to three autoinflammatory syndromes collectively referred to as cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS; also called cryopyrinopathies) (48, 49, 50, 51). Gain-of-function mutations of NLRP3 cause a lowered activation threshold that leads to IL-1β secretion even in the absence of a stimulus in vitro (36, 52, 53). All CAPS are characterized by increased levels of IL-1β in the absence of infection. CAPS consist of a spectrum of diseases ranging from the mild, such as familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome (FCAS), to the intermediate, such as Muckle-Wells syndrome (MWS), to the severe, such as chronic infantile neurological, cutaneous and articular (CINCA) syndrome, also known as neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID). All three syndromes present with fever, urticaria-like rash, and varying degrees of arthropathy and neurological manifestations (4, 54, 55, 56). FCAS consists of the mildest symptoms, including ...
Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is a hereditary recurrent fever associated with mutations in the gene MEFV encoding pyrin. It is expressed mainly in neutrophils and macrophages, and modulates the production of the potent pro-inflammatory cytokine interleukin-1� through regulation of nuclear factor-?B and caspase-1. The MEFV gene expression depends on multiple levels of regulation. Sequence variants located in the promoter and at the 3-untranslated region of the gene modulate this expression. Two studies demonstrated decreased mRNA levels in FMF patients compared with healthy subjects, whereas two others found no significant differences. The diverse experimental settings may have resulted in variable quantification of the 15 splice variants that have been identified recently. Some of these isoforms are regulated by nonsense-mediated decay in both cell- and transcript-specific manner, and may be differentially translated in THP1 cells. In addition, pyrin may be cleaved by caspase 1. The ...
Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is a hereditary inflammatory disorder. FMF is an autoinflammatory disease caused by mutations in Mediterranean fever gene, which encodes a 781-amino acid protein called pyrin. While all ethnic groups are susceptible to FMF, it usually occurs in people of Mediterranean origin-including Sephardic Jews, Mizrahi Jews, Armenians, Azerbaijanis, Arabs, Greeks, Turks and Italians. The disorder has been given various names, including familial paroxysmal polyserositis, periodic peritonitis, recurrent polyserositis, benign paroxysmal peritonitis, periodic disease or periodic fever, Reimann periodic disease or Reimanns syndrome, Siegal-Cattan-Mamou disease, and Wolff periodic disease. Note that periodic fever can also refer to any of the periodic fever syndromes. There are seven types of attacks. Ninety percent of all patients have their first attack before they are 18 years old. All develop over 2-4 hours and last anywhere from 6 hours to 4 days. Most attacks involve ...

That depends on whether you are giving or getting oral sex. Many women have a natural microflora balance in their vaginas, and if this balance is upset in any way, one or more of the species that live there can take over temporarily and cause itchiness. This manifests most often as a yeast infection caused by a yeast species called Candida albicans. ...

AIM: Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is the most common autoinflammatory disease. One of the common characteristics of this disease is its young age predominance. Nearly 90% of patients experience disease flares during early adult age periods. Currently there are limited data for the comparison of early versus late onset FMF and therefore the primary aim of this study was to investigate these two subsets with regard to their certain demographic, clinical and genetic differences. METHODS: Early (≤ 20 years, Group 1) and late (, 20 years, Group 2) onset FMF patients were identified from the national FMF registry that involves 2246 patients from 15 adult rheumatology clinics located in different geographical areas of Turkey ...
Anakinra 100 mg daily by subcutaneous injection was started. Three hours after the first dose of anakinra, the rash resolved completely and her joint pain began to improve. Continuing with daily anakinra, the urticaria did not recur and the arthritis resolved. Two weeks after initiation of anakinra, the leukocytosis resolved; hemoglobin, CRP, and ferritin were normalized; and ESR was markedly improved. Her serum IgA level initially declined slightly, but reached a plateau and was not normalized (Figure 1). Continuation of daily anakinra sustained the clinical therapeutic effects and improvement of laboratory measures of systemic inflammation. She remained in remission at 8 months after initiation of anakinra. However, her finger-clubbing remained with no changes.. The clinical constellation of this case fits the spectrum of autoinflammatory diseases and closely resembles Schnitzlers syndrome. However, the major distinction of this case from Schnitzlers syndrome was the lack of monoclonal IgM ...

Background/Purpose: The deficiency of adenosindeaminase 2 (DADA2) is a recently described autosomal recessive autoinflammatory disease, caused by mutations of CECR1 and characterized by early onset vasculopathy with livedoid skin associated to systemic inflammation. In some patients, the disease is mild and skin-limited, in others is severe, with multi-organ involvement including ischemic or hemorrhagic strokes. In some DADA2 patients a mild immunodeficiency was detected involving adaptive immunity. TNF inhibitors are very efficacious. Recently, an upregulation of type I interferon-stimulated gene transcripts, so called interferon signature, was described also in two DADA2 patients. We describe the clinical course of a 4 patients with CECR1 mutations and we assess the role of interferon type I signature as marker of diseases activity Methods: Molecular analysis of CECR1 was performed using next generation sequencing and confirmed by sanger sequencing. Blood was collected into PAXgene tubes and ...
During the first century, the Roman physician Cornelius Celsus defined four cardinal signs of inflammation: redness, swelling, heat, and pain. These signs and symptoms occur during infection by invasive pathogens or as a consequence of trauma. Today, we understand the molecular basis of these physiological responses as mediated by cytokines and other factors produced by cells of the innate immune system. Cytokines are both necessary and sufficient to cause pathophysiological alterations manifested as the four cardinal signs. Importantly, this knowledge has enabled the development of highly selective therapeutical agents that target individual cytokines to prevent or reverse inflammation. For example, selective inhibitors of TNF, a major inflammatory cytokine, have revolutionized the therapy of rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and other autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases affecting millions worldwide. Now, in PNAS, Hess et al. use functional MRI to monitor brain activity and ...
Background: Activated PI3-Kinase Delta Syndrome (APDS) is a recently described combined immunodeficiency resulting from gain-of-function mutations in PIK3CD, the gene encoding the catalytic subunit of phosphoinositide 3-kinase δ (PI3Kδ). Objective: To review the clinical, immunological, histopathological and radiological features of APDS in a large genetically-defined international cohort. Methods: Clinical questionnaire, and review of medical notes, radiology histopathology and laboratory investigations of 53 APDS patients. Results: Recurrent sino-pulmonary infections (96%) and non-neoplastic lymphoproliferation (75%) were common, often from childhood. Other significant complications included herpesvirus infections (49%), autoinflammatory disease (34%), and lymphoma (13%). Unexpectedly, neurodevelopmental delay occurred in 19% of the cohort, suggesting a role for PI3Kδ in the central nervous system (CNS); consistent with this PI3Kδ is broadly expressed in the developing murine CNS. Thoracic ...
Sequence variations in the gene products PYPAF1/CIAS1 and NOD2/CARD15 have been associated with several autoinflammatory diseases that, although clinically different, share a similar inflammatory pathophysiology. A multiple sequence alignment of homologous proteins demonstrates that some of the missense variants are located in highly conserved regions of the NTPase domain and possibly impair NTP-hydrolysis. Intriguingly, one of the variations, which is found identically in PYPAF1 and NOD2, is located at the same alignment position. Our findings suggest that evolutionary gene duplication can give rise to disease families because variants affect conserved sequence in a similar fashion ...

Gaitza arina denean, larruazaleko kremak erabiltzen dira, goiko geruza epidermikoak askatzen dituztenak eta poroen itxiera ekiditen dutenak. Larruazalaren esfoliazioa eragiten dute. Bakterizida topikoak ere erabil daitezke (benzoil peroxidoa dutenak). Kasu larrietan antibiotikoak erabiltzen dira: era topikoan (eritromizina eta klindamizina) edo aho bidetik (tetraziklinak, batik bat, eta eritromizina eta amoxizilina ere). Antibiotiko horiek guztiek aknea sortzen duten bakterioak akabatzen dituzte. Oso eraginkorrak dira ere erretinoide deritzonak. Molekula horiek A bitaminarekin lotuta daude. Aknearen aurka ez ezik, psoriasi eta larruazaleko beste gaitz batzuen aurka ere erabiltzen dira, era topikoan zein aho bidetik. Aho bidetik hartzen den erretinoide batek, isotretinoinak (Accutane), emaitza oso onak ematen ditu, baina tentuz hartu behar da, eragiten dituen albo-ondorioak direla-eta [3] Eragile fisikoak ere erabili dira aknea tratatzeko, esaterako laserra. Antza, honek ez du bakarrik granoak ...
Errotabirus batzuek gastroenteritis akutua eragiten dute. Haur txikiak izan ohi dira kaltetuenak, baina infekzioak adin guztietan du eragina. Euskal Herrian kasu gehienak neguan gertatzen dira, eta kutsapen bidea gorozki-ahokoa da, hesteetako infekzio gehienen antzera. Gaitzaren inkubazio epea 2 egunetakoa da, eta gero beherako akutua dator, goragaleak, sukarra eta sabeleko minarekin batera. Sintomek astebete inguru irauten dute, eta gero berez desagertzen dira. Azken urteotan ahalegin handiak egin dira gastroenteritisa sortzen duten errotabirusen aurkako txerto bat bilatzen; 2006an bi kaleratu ziren, Rotarix eta Rotateq izenekoak, birus motelduak dituztenak eta aho bidetik hartzen direnak. Emaitzak itxaropentsuak izan dira. ...
