Could Fish Oil, Vitamin D Help Ease Lupus?

THURSDAY, Nov. 9, 2017 -- People with lupus may fare better if they have enough vitamin D and omega-3 fats in their diet, preliminary research suggests. In separate studies, researchers linked the two nutrients -- or lack thereof -- to higher risks...

Connective tissue disorders are now understood to include autoimmune and genetic diseases affecting organs, blood vessels, and surrounding fascia. Many of these diseases predominantly affect women in childbearing years and are associated with neurologic complications. Pregnancy can affect disease activity (such as flares of systemic lupus erythematosus), and the diseases can affect pregnancy outcome (such as increased risk of preterm labor). We review the neurologic complications and changes with pregnancy for systemic lupus erythematosus, Sj ögren syndrome, idiopathic inflammatory myopathy, and Marfan syndrome.

We report a novel case of LAHS in which the patient experienced the sequence of hemorrhage–thrombosis–hemorrhage before eventually dying of fatal pulmonary embolism and pulmonary hemorrhage. Specifically, she presented with multiple gastrointestinal bleeding episodes, followed by multifocal subdural hematomas, pulmonary embolism after normalization of prothrombin activity levels with immunosuppression, and finally with fatal pulmonary hemorrhage after enoxaparin treatment for pulmonary embolism. This case illustrates the importance of recognizing early minor bleeding episodes, and detecting specific antiprothro...

The current study aims to explore the phenotype and genotype of a mutation Ala291Thr, which responsible for type I protein C (PC) deficiency in a Chinese woman. The PROC antigen was tested with chromogenic substrate method. PROC gene were amplified by PCR with direct sequencing. Bioinformatics and model analysis were used to study the harm of the mutation. PC activity (PC: A) levels of three members were reduced to 39, 57 and 56%, respectively, PC: antigen was decreased parallelly same as PC: A. Sequencing analysis showed proband with a novel heterozygous c.997G>A point mutation in exon 9 of PROC gene resulting in Ala29...
