AbstractAutoimmune diseases (ADs) are featured by the body ’s immune responses being directed against its own tissues, resulting in prolonged inflammation and subsequent tissue damage. Currently, the exact pathogenesis of ADs remains not fully elucidated. Semaphorin-3A (Sema3A), a secreted member of semaphorin family, is a potent immunoregulator during al l immune response stages. Sema3A has wide expression, such as in bone, connective tissue, kidney, neurons, and cartilage. Sema3A can downregulate ADs by suppressing the over-activity of both T-cell and B-cell autoimmunity. Moreover, Sema3A shows the ability to enhan...

Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is an uncommon disease that often presents with nonspecific findings. A high index of suspicion is necessary to make a prompt diagnosis and prevent fatal disease. A 45-year-old man presented with fever, hypotension, abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. Imaging showed hepatosplenomegaly and laboratory tests revealed pancytopenia, increased ferritin, and a cholestatic pattern of injury with elevated alkaline phosphatase and total bilirubin. Due to a history of Crohn disease, systemic lupus erythematous, and rheumatoid arthritis, the patient was on immunosuppressants, including inflix...

AbstractThe study aims to analyse the clinical and immunological manifestations of paediatric antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) in patients, based on the 2006 revised classification criteria of definite APS. Fifty-eight paediatric patients with APS were enrolled and analysed retrospectively. A total of 37 female and 21 male patients with a mean age of 14  ± 3 years at disease onset were included. Fourteen (24%) cases were primary APS, and 40 (69%) cases were secondary to systemic lupus erythaematosus (SLE). Anti-nuclear antibody (ANA) positivity and hypocomplementemia were more common in secondary APS t...

First bit of news: I’ve had absolutely no pain in my heel. It’s as good as new. I have to admit I’m still stunned…and I wonder if a more conventional doctor, let’s say a physiotherapist, would have made the connection between my relatively new eyeglass prescription and my heel pain. I doubt it. This makes me wonder how many similar cases there are, of people who think they have plantar fasciitis or tendonitis or, sorry for the mention!  , heel spurs, but whose pain actually originated in a different part of the body, an easy-to-fix part of the body. Mind-blowing, eh? But the reason I&rsq...

This study aimed to test the hypothesis that IL-37 suppresses inflammation in psoriasis. Biopsies from human lesional psoriasis (LP) and non-lesional psoriasis (NLP) were collected. In addition, biopsies were collected during treatment with either adalimumab (n= 6) or ustekinumab (n= 12; 6 responders and 6 non-responders).

Semin Musculoskelet Radiol 2018; 22: 147-165 DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1639468We discuss the imaging of several juvenile inflammatory arthropathies including juvenile idiopathic arthritis, juvenile systemic lupus erythematosus, juvenile scleroderma, juvenile dermatomyositis, and chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis. Juvenile idiopathic arthritis is the most common autoimmune chronic systemic disease of connective tissue in children. The remaining systemic juvenile connective tissue diseases are rare. However, they require early diagnosis and initiation of treatment to prevent injury, not only to the musculoskeletal system ...

AbstractRegistry data worldwide indicate an overall female predominance for pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) of 2 –4 over men. Genetic predisposition accounts for only 1–5% of PAH cases, while autoimmune diseases and infections are closely linked to PAH. Idiopathic PAH may include patients with undiagnosed autoimmune diseases based on the relatively high presence of autoantibodies in this group. The two lar gest PAH registries to date report a sex ratio for autoimmune connective tissue disease-associated PAH of 9:1 female to male, highlighting the need for future studies to analyze subgroup data according ...
