Authors: Freier D, Strehl C, Buttgereit F Abstract Glucocorticoids (GC) have been proven drug substances in rheumatology for more than 70 years. They act very rapidly in high doses through membrane stabilizing effects. Genomic therapeutic effects of GC even in very low doses are mainly due to inhibition of the functions of the transcription factor nuclear factor kappa B (NFkB), which promotes the synthesis of proinflammatory mediators, adhesion molecules and other regulatory proteins. Indications for the use of GC in high doses in rheumatology are always given when a life-threatening, dangerous or tr...

Publication date: March 2020Source: Journal of Global Antimicrobial Resistance, Volume 20Author(s): Sibylle H. Lob, Daryl J. Hoban, Katherine Young, Mary R. Motyl, Daniel F. SahmAbstractObjectivesInfections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa are often difficult to treat. Knowledge of the risk of infection with resistant P. aeruginosa would allow more discriminatory prescribing of broad-spectrum antimicrobials. Using clinical isolates collected as part of the Study for Monitoring Antimicrobial Resistance Trends (SMART), we examined the activity of commonly used β-lactams, levofloxacin, and ceftolozane–tazobactam (C...

Modern medicine has no cure for autoimmune diseases — and, sadly, most doctors don’t understand them. I’m talking about disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, lupus, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis (MS) and more. In all, there are about 80 autoimmune diseases affecting organs throughout the body. They occur when your own immune system becomes overactive and attacks your body instead of diseases and foreign invaders. The standard mainstream treatment for most autoimmune disorders relies on Big Pharma drugs that cover up symptoms or suppress your immun...

The Protective Role of HLA-DRB1(∗)13 in Autoimmune Diseases. J Immunol Res. 2015;2015:948723 Authors: Bettencourt A, Carvalho C, Leal B, Brás S, Lopes D, Martins da Silva A, Santos E, Torres T, Almeida I, Farinha F, Barbosa P, Marinho A, Selores M, Correia J, Vasconcelos C, Costa PP, da Silva BM Abstract Autoimmune diseases (AIDs) are characterized by a multifactorial aetiology and a complex genetic background, with the MHC region playing a major role. We genotyped for HLA-DRB1 locus 1228 patients with AIDs-213 with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), 166 with Psoriasis or Psoriatic Arthr...

Ten years ago, Mark Pischea, then a 42-year-old political consultant and father of five from Williamston, Michigan, was rushed to the hospital with severe stomach pain. Pischea was diagnosed with Crohn's disease, a chronic autoimmune condition that can cause extreme abdominal discomfort, weight loss, fatigue and fevers. For the next decade of his life, the formerly healthy husband and father lived in a constant cycle of flare-ups, surgery and recovery. After his fifth surgery, Pischea was bedridden for six weeks. At that point, he was told his only remaining options were a sixth surgery or the removal o...
