Young people with lupus 'feel limited by their condition'
Young people with lupus are troubled by a feeling that their condition is limiting their opportunities in life, according to a new study.The Australian research, led by the University of Sydney, formed this conclusion after examining the experiences and perspectives of adolescents and young adults diagnosed with juvenile-onset systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The findings could help to inform strategies for improving treatment and health outcomes.The perceived social impact of lupus It is well known that disease activity, organ damage and treatment burden can often have a significant impact on young people with lupus, c...

Intarcia, Numab log milestones for autoimmune drug-device combo
Intarcia Therapeutics and pharmaceuticals maker Numab said today that they’ve logged several milestones in their joint project to develop a drug-device combination for treating inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Wädenswil, Switzerland-based Numab identified a pair of antibody-based compounds for the program, which aims to use the delivery and formulation technology developed by Cambridge, Mass.-based Intarcia. The companies said Intarcia has successfully formulated versions of both the molecule targets identified by Numab. “Achievement of this milestone for Intarcia further confirms the power of NumabR...

New clues found to immune system's misfiring in autoimmune diseases
(Washington University School of Medicine) A person's genetic makeup plays a role in autoimmune diseases that develop when the body is attacked by its own immune system. But little is known about how immune cells are pushed into overdrive. Now, in new research that points to potential therapeutic targets for autoimmune diseases, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have identified genetic master switches that turn up -- or down -- the activity of specific types of immune cells.

What Causes Pelvic Pain?
Discussion Appendicitis results from a closed loop obstruction of a blind-ending tubular structure arising from the cecum. It is a common cause of abdominal pain. It is the most frequent condition leading to emergent abdominal surgery in pediatrics. The combination of obstruction, edema, bacterial overgrowth, increased inflammatory process and increased intraluminal pressure leads to abdominal pain and possibly perforation. Appendicitis occurs in all age groups but is rare in neonates. The peak age is 6-10 years old. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an inflammatory disease of the uterus, fallopian tubes and adjacent p...

[Report] The 3.8 Å resolution cryo-EM structure of Zika virus
We present the 3.8 angstrom resolution structure of mature Zika virus, determined by cryo–electron microscopy (cryo-EM). The structure of Zika virus is similar to other known flavivirus structures, except for the ~10 amino acids that surround the Asn154 glycosylation site in each of the 180 envelope glycoproteins that make up the icosahedral shell. The carbohydrate moiety associated with this residue, which is recognizable in the cryo-EM electron density, may function as an attachment site of the virus to host cells. This region varies not only among Zika virus strains but also in other flaviviruses, which suggests that ...
