AbstractThrombotic Microangiopathy (TMA) is a heterogeneous collection of syndromes that encompasses TTP, HUS, and other processes characterized by thrombocytopenia, microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, and, if untreated, organ failure and death. Novel therapies have recently been approved for the management of certain thrombotic microangiopathies, including caplacizumab for immune-mediated TTP, and eculizumab for atypical HUS. These options have complicated the standard workflow, which includes initiation of plasma exchange until ADAMTS13 testing can be resulted. Given such results may take several days, there is indecision...

We describe a 25-year-old man with isolated thrombocytopenia initially. He experienced recurrent seizures with stable thrombocytopenia after the first seizures related to intracranial hemorrhage. He was identified a novel c.3452C>T mutation by targeted exome sequencing. If a patient with thrombocytopenia shows recurrent seizures as well as renal, hearing, visual symptoms, MHA should be suspected and the targeted exome sequencing is considered an effective diagnostic tool.

The success of Intravenous Immunoglobulin in treating autoimmune and inflammatory processes such as immune thrombocytopenia purpura and Kawasaki disease has led to renewed interest in developing recombinant molecules capable of recapitulating these therapeutic effects. The anti-inflammatory properties of IVIG are, in part, due to the Fc region of the IgG molecule, which interacts with activating or inhibitory Fcγ receptors (FcγRs), the neonatal Fc Receptor, non-canonical FcRs expressed by immune cells and complement proteins. In most cases, Fc interactions with these cognate receptors are dependent upon avidity...

Authors: Davenport P, Liu ZJ, Sola-Visner M Abstract A growing body of research has made it increasingly clear that there are substantial biological differences between fetal/neonatal and adult megakaryopoiesis. Over the last decade, studies revealed a developmentally unique uncoupling of proliferation, polyploidization, and cytoplasmic maturation in neonatal MKs that results in the production of large numbers of small, low ploidy, but mature MKs during this period of development, and identified substantial molecular differences between fetal/neonatal and adult MKs. This review will summarize our current knowledge ...

AbstractTo study oxidative stress in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) by estimating serum oxidised LDL (OxLDL), 8-hydroxy-2 ′-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG), malondialdehyde (MDA), and total anti-oxidant status and to correlate with SLE disease activity and disease damage. Eighty SLE patients satisfying the Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics/American College of Rheumatology (SLICC/ACR) 2012 criteria and 80 hea lthy controls were studied. Exclusion criteria were infections, renal insufficiency, other connective tissue diseases, drug-induced lupus, smoking, alcohol consumption. Disease activity was measured ...

Effects of Interleukin-1β Inhibition on Incident Anemia: Exploratory Analyses From a Randomized Trial. Ann Intern Med. 2020 Mar 24;: Authors: Vallurupalli M, MacFadyen JG, Glynn RJ, Thuren T, Libby P, Berliner N, Ridker PM Abstract Background: Inflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin (IL)-1β, alter iron homeostasis and erythropoiesis, resulting in anemia, but whether inhibition of IL-1β can reverse these effects is unclear. Objective: To determine whether IL-1β inhibition with canakinumab reduces incident anemia and improves hemoglobin levels among those with prevalent anem...
