IL-27: Friend or Foe in the Autoimmune Diseases

Conclusions: The functions of IL-27 are currently unclear because it appears to affect different cells, cytokines, and signaling pathways differently. Further investigations are needed to clarify the role of IL-27 in autoimmune diseases. Hence, this article reviewed the multiple roles of IL-27 in autoimmune diseases and describe the influence of IL-27 on the immune system.

ConclusionsHPV prevalence in the oral mucosa of the assessed FA patients was higher than reported in the general population. Additional studies with collection of sequential samples are needed to know the natural history of the presence of multiple HPV types in these individuals and its association with the development of tumors, to evaluate the implementation of preventive measures, such as vaccination, and to guide early treatment.This article is protected by copyright.

Authors: Ciechanowicz P, Rakowska A, Sikora M, Rudnicka L Abstract The Janus kinase (JAK) and signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) pathway is a ubiquitous intracellular signaling network. Selective JAK-inhibitors have anti-inflammatory properties and have been approved in many countries for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (tofacitinib, baricitinib) and myelofibrosis or polycythemia vera (ruxolitinib). The aim of the publication was to summarize and critically analyze the efficacy and safety of JAK-inhibitors in skin diseases, such as psoriasis, alopecia areata, atopic dermatitis and vitilig...

This study aims to assess ligament lesions and subluxations of the carpometacarpal (CMC) joint of the thumbs and the role that these ligament ruptures play in the pathophysiology of osteoarthritis (OA). Twenty-five fresh-frozen cadaver hands were dissected. There were 14 female and 11 male with mean age 65 years (51-92 years old). The origin, insertion, and fibre orientation of the ligaments were identified based on Berger´s anatomical descriptions. Length, thickness and width of the main ligaments were measured. The ligament ruptures and the metacarpal translation associated with these ruptures were measured (mm). C...
