Conclusions: Our findings highlight that AIG may have an age-dependent presentation; thus, we can consider a pediatric phenotype that in contrast to adults, is manifested by refractory iron-deficient anemia and associated with parietal cell autoantibody positivity, but not intrinsic factor autoantibodies. A correlation between H pylori and AIG was not evident in the current study and it is still unclear whether H pylori is a trigger for AIG.

In this study, we choose 28 IS patients, of which 12 were suffering from anemia. Statistical analyses results showed that the outcome of the patients were different when dividing them into two groups characterized by Hb concentration. 2 sex and age matched patients were first chosen to perform RNA-seq analyses twice on different time points, after which the Hb counts were tested at least 24 hours after sequencing. Results showed that the outcome of anemia patients was poor compared with non-anemia patients. Two other patients were then chosen for analyses which excluded the coincidence of other factors. The results showed ...

Authors: Lyman GH Abstract Biosimilars are here to stay, but whether they will enjoy widespread uptake remains to be seen. The FDA sets a high bar for approval of biosimilar products, yet many clinicians remain skeptical about the efficacy and safety of these agents. Favorable experience with>30 biosimilars in Europe provides some reassurance that these agents are safe and effective and can be substituted for the reference product.
