Prevalence of autoimmune diseases and clinical significance of autoantibody profile: data from National Institute of Hygiene in Rabat, Morocco.

CONCLUSION: Our study shows the diagnostic value of auto antibodies in AIDs. It would be interesting to carry out prospective studies on each pathology separately, in order to fill the classic vagaries of the retrospective study and objectively estimate the prevalence in different AIDs. These data on the prevalence of each autoimmune disease are valuable for the public health system. PMID: 30807792 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: López-Sánchez GN, Dóminguez-Pérez M, Uribe M, Nuño-Lámbarri N Abstract Acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) is a life-threatening condition characterized by a rapid deterioration of previously well-compensated chronic liver diseases. One of the main obstacles in ACLF is the lack of knowledge of the pathogenesis and specific broad-spectrum treatments. An excessive systemic inflammatory response has been proposed to explain the pathogenesis of ACLF; this hypothesis involves stellate cells, which are implicated in many liver homeostatic functions that include vitamin...

This article discusses the medications used to treat AIBD prior to conception, during pregnancy, and while breastfeeding, as well as highlights those that are contraindicated. The preferred approach to management in these patients is also discussed. Additionally, we present the available information regarding neonates of mothers with a diagnosis of AIBD, including the likelihood, identification, and management of neonatal blistering and the effects from medication exposure in utero.

Conclusions: Ocular involvement (mostly uveitis) in juvenile inflammatory arthritis and other pediatric rheumatic diseases varied between 3% and 50% depending on the underlying condition; and was highest in pediatric Bechet’s. In JIA, the highest frequency of uveitis was in oligoarticular JIA; with anterior uveitis being the most frequent type of uveitis. There was variation geographically for uveitis in JIA.

Sandrine ThuretAbstractInterferon (IFN)-α treatment for hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a well-recognized clinical model for inflammation-induced depression, but the brain cellular mechanisms underlying these effects are still not clear. Previous data reported an alteration in peripheral levels of inflammatory and neuroplasticity markers in the blood of depressed versus non-depressed patients. We in...
