Epidemiologic and etiologic patterns of uveitis in a University Hospital.

[Epidemiologic and etiologic patterns of uveitis in a University Hospital]. J Fr Ophtalmol. 2019 Jun 01;: Authors: Neiter E, Conart JB, Baumann C, Rousseau H, Zuily S, Angioi-Duprez K Abstract INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to describe the epidemiologic characteristics of adult uveitis evaluated at the regional center of excellence specializing in systemic and autoimmune disease in the Nancy university medical center. The secondary objectives were to describe the progression over time of the various etiologies and to identify local specificities. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective epidemiological study of patients diagnosed with uveitis. All patients were referred to the regional center of excellence of the Nancy university medical center between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2016. Patients under 18 years of age, patients with a first episode of acute anterior uveitis, as well as patients for whom the etiological diagnosis was made by the ophthalmologist with no need of internal medicine referral, were excluded. Age, gender, laterality, site of inflammation, clinical signs, etiology (infectious, non-infectious or idiopathic, as well as diagnosis), and date of first consultation were recorded. RESULTS: Six hundred and ninetypatients were included, with 59 % women and a mean age of 49 years. The uveitis was unilateral in 53 % of cases. Panuveitis was the most common form (52 %, N=358), f...

CONCLUSIONS: As the present study was the first investigation on the coagulation status in patients with AA, elevated D-dimer levels in alopecia areata may suggest a deficient coagulation in these patients that may contribute to an increase in the risk of thrombosis. Further studies are needed to evaluate this hypothesis using a larger sample size. PMID: 33034439 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractRheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a progressive autoimmune inflammatory disease affecting 1% of the population with three times as many women as men. As many as 86% of patients suffering from RA have cervical spine involvement. Synovial inflammation in the cervical spine causes instability and injuries including atlantoaxial subluxation, retroodontoid pannus formation, cranial settling, and subaxial subluxation. While many patients with cervical spine involvement are asymptomatic, symptomatic patients often present with nonspecific symptoms resulting from inflammation and additional secondary symptoms that are due to co...

ConclusionsWith the experience we gained from our recent studies, we think that miRNA-204 may be a significant biomarker in autoimmune diseases. Our study is the first study between IgAV and miRNAs in children. More studies are needed to reveal this relationship.Key Points•This is the first paper to show the relationship between miRNAs and childhood IgAV.•It will provide a new perspective to evaluate the pathogenesis of the disease.

We examined the clinical characteristics and post-LT outcomes of patients with sarcoidosis using the United Network for Organ Sharing database from 1985 to 2016 and compared them to patients (entire cohort as well as age, gender, and year of LT-matched counterparts) with primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). For the matched design, a conditional logistic regression was used for categorical variables and marginal generalized estimating equation regression models for continuous variables. Survival functions were constructed using the Kaplan-Meier estimator. Results: A total of 206 pat...

Authors: Lu Y, Yang Q, Hu W, Dong J Abstract Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is one of the most common autoimmune diseases in children. Previous studies have suggested that endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) might be engaged in the regulating of the biological processes in T1D and folic acid (FA) might be engaged in regulating EPC function. The present study has identified 716 downregulated genes and 617 upregulated genes in T1D EPC cases after treated with FA. Bioinformatics analysis has shown that these DEGs were engaged in regulating metabolic processes, cell proliferation-related processes, bone marrow development, cell...

Conclusions: We conclude that TSLP may activate DC-SIGN-positive DCs directly, which may be involved in the pathogenesis of BP. PMID: 33029540 [PubMed - in process]
