Authors: Çulha G, Kaya T, Gülbol Duran G, Urhan Küçük M, Doğramacı AÇ, Tiyekli Çelik D Abstract Leishmaniasis is a parasitic disease that is transmitted to humans by the bites of infected female phlebotomine sandflies. In the diagnosis of cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL), in the smear samples, the demonstration of the parasite by microscope remains a gold standard method. However, it becomes difficult to diagnose the parasite since the number of amastigotes in chronic cases with a lesion of one year or longer is very low. Due to many factor such as patients primarily do not ...

Authors: El Jammal T, Gerfaud-Valentin M, Sève P, Jamilloux Y Abstract In the past ten years, the better understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying inflammatory and autoimmune diseases has led to the emergence of many targeted therapies. Among them, the Janus kinase inhibitors are acting upstream in the inflammatory cascade of several key cytokines in disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis or psoriasis. At the moment, these three diseases represent the only indications validated by the FDA and the EMA of the use of JAK inhibitors apart from hematology. Preclinical data ...

Alemtuzumab is an efficacious therapy for active relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS), but its use is complicated by the potential development of secondary autoimmunity.1 Recent data from phase 3 extension studies confirm thyroid autoimmunity as the most abundant entity of secondary autoimmunity found in up to 30%–40% of treated patients, with most events mild or moderate in severity. Data also show low rates of previously known autoimmune phenomena, such as immune thrombocytopenia and nephropathy.2 However, further entities including sarcoidosis, vitiligo, and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) have been described in...
