JAK inhibitors: Perspectives in internal medicine.

[JAK inhibitors: Perspectives in internal medicine]. Rev Med Interne. 2019 Nov 04;: 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 and therapeutic trials indicate their efficacy in other autoimmune or inflammatory conditions, such as lupus, dermatomyositis, ankylosing spondylitis, sarcoidosis and giant cell arteritis. This review provides a summary of current use and advancement of knowledge in the use of JAK inhibitors in pathologies faced by internists. PMID: 31699450 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The present study demonstrates cocrystallization as a successful technique to improve the biopharmaceutical parameters of diacerein. Three cocrystals of diacerein were prepared by an eco-friendly technique with three suitable coformers namely isonicotinamide, nicotinamide, and theophylline...

Authors: Ye X, Zhou XJ, Zhang H Abstract Autophagy is an important biology process, central to the maintenance of biology process in both physiological and pathological situations. It is regarded as a "double-edged sword"-exerting both protective and/or detrimental effects. These two-way effects are observed in immune cells as well as renal resident cells, including podocytes, mesangial cells, tubular epithelial cells, and endothelial cells of the glomerular capillaries. Mounting evidence suggests that autophagy is implicated in the pathological process of various immune-related renal diseases (IRRDs) as ...

Authors: Sun L, Liu W, Zhang LJ Abstract As the key defense molecules originally identified in Drosophila, Toll-like receptor (TLR) superfamily members play a fundamental role in detecting invading pathogens or damage and initiating the innate immune system of mammalian cells. The skin, the largest organ of the human body, protects the human body by providing a critical physical and immunological active multilayered barrier against invading pathogens and environmental factors. At the first line of defense, the skin is constantly exposed to pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) and damage-associated molecul...

CONCLUSION: A thoughtful ileostomy is important so as to not sacrifice bowel in patients being prepared for redo ileal pouch surgery. Initial diversion with thoughtful ileostomy 6 months before redo ileal pouch construction also allows patients to be prepared for a major operation both physiologically and psychologically.
