Study confirms narcolepsy as an autoimmune disease
A new study that offers some of the most compelling evidence to date for the idea of "mimicry," where the immune system attacks a body protein because of its similarity to a pathogen protein, confirms that narcolepsy is an autoimmune disease. (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)

Common disorders: It's not the genes themselves, but how they are controlled
(Case Western Reserve University) Many rare disorders are caused by gene mutation. Yet until now the underlying genetic cause of more common conditions has evaded scientists for years. New research from Case Western Reserve University to appear in Genome Research finds that six common diseases arise from DNA changes located outside genes. The study from the laboratory of Peter Scacheri, PhD, shows that multiple DNA changes, or variants, work in concert to affect genes, leading to autoimmune diseases.

Preferable treatment for MS found in allogenic bone marrow stem cells
(Cell Transplantation Center of Excellence for Aging and Brain Repair) Multiple sclerosis (MS) is caused by an immune reaction to myelin proteins that form the myelin insulating substance around nerves, resulting in demyelination. Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been considered as an important source for cell therapy for autoimmune diseases such as MS because of their immunosuppressive properties. Researchers compared MSCs isolated from MS patients and from healthy donors to determine if the MSCs from MS patients are immunosuppressively normal or defective.

What Causes Muscle Weakness?
Discussion Muscle tone is the slight tension that is felt in a muscle when it is voluntarily relaxed. It can be assessed by asking the patient to relax and then taking the muscles through a range of motion such as moving the wrists, forearm and upper arm. Muscle strength is the muscle’s force against active resistance. Impaired strength is called weakness or paresis. There are 5 levels of muscle strength. 0 = No muscle contraction detected 1 = Barely detected flicker of contraction 2 = Active movement with gravity eliminated 3 = Active movement against gravity 4 = Active movement against gravity and some resistance ...

Autoimmune hepatitis - 2013 Lancet review
In common with many autoimmune diseases, autoimmune hepatitis is associated with non-organ-specific antibodies in the context of hepatic autoimmunity.Autoimmune hepatitis can present in acute or chronic forms. Remission is achievable in up to 85% of cases. For the remaining patients, immunosuppression is an option. Liver transplantation provides an excellent outcome for patients with acute liver failure or complications of end-stage liver disease, including hepatocellular carcinoma.

Powerful mechanism discovered that keeps white blood cells from going rogue
The immune system is a double-edged sword. While its primary role is to fight infections, it can also become overactive, leading to problems like allergies and autoimmune diseases.For example, the part of the immune system responsible for resisting parasites acts by releasing white blood cells called eosinophil granulocytes into the blood. But elevated eosinophil levels are also responsible for allergic reactions, including most forms of asthma, gastrointestinal diseases, blood disorders, and cancers.Now a study, led by Dr. (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)

Selective Detection of Phagocytic Phase of Apoptosis in Fixed Tissue Sections
Degradation of apoptotic cells is finalized during the phagocytic waste-management phase of apoptosis. This eliminates genetic material present in dying cells which often contain pathological, viral, or cancerous DNA. In the waste-management phase, chromatin of apoptotic cells is engulfed and digested by professional phagocytes or surrounding tissue cells. This process is critical for the efficient completion of apoptosis and its detection is necessary in research on cancer and autoimmune diseases where clearance of dying cells plays the central role. Here we present a rapid and simple fluorescence technique for visualizat...
