Measurement of Malondialdehyde, Glutathione, and Glutathione Peroxidase in SLE Patients
Oxidative stress contributes to chronic inflammation of tissues and plays a central role in immunomodulation, which may lead to autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and antiphospholipid syndrome. Markers of oxidative damage include malondialdehyde (MDA), antioxidant scavengers as glutathione (GSH), and glutathione peroxidase (GSH Px), which all correlate well with SLE disease activity. Amelioration of some clinical manifestations of SLE may be expected by targeting lipid peroxidation with dietary or pharmacological antioxidants. (Source: Springer protocols feed by Immunology)

Generation of Self-Peptides to Treat Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
Synthetic peptides are attracting increasing attention as therapeutics. Despite their potential, however, only a few selected peptides have been able to enter in clinical trials for chronic autoimmune diseases and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in particular. Here, we describe and discuss a series of assays, which may help in characterizing valuable candidate peptides that were applied in our laboratory to develop the lupus P140 peptide program. The different steps of selection include the choice of the initial autoantigen, the design, synthesis and purification of peptides, their preliminary screen by measuring cytoki...

Detection of SLE Antigens in Neutrophil Extracellular Traps (NETs)
Neutrophils are sentinel cells of the innate immune system with a primary role of clearing extracellular pathogens. The release of weblike structures decorated with granular proteins called neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) has recently been implicated in the pathogenesis of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Indeed, NETs may represent an important source of autoantigens and immunostimulatory proteins in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). In this chapter, we describe protocols to isolate human peripheral neutrophils, to generate and isolate NETs, and to detect SLE antigens in NETs using immunofluorescence and immun...

Isolation, Polarization, and Expansion of CD4+ Helper T Cell Lines and Clones Using Magnetic Beads
Autoreactive CD4+ helper T cells specific for a range of nucleoprotein-derived autoantigens are an important feature of systemic lupus erythematosus, driving B cell differentiation and autoantibody production and contributing to the inflammatory lesions caused by immune complex deposition. Several peptide epitopes from nucleoprotein antigens have been identified and offer a means selectively to manipulate T cell responses by skewing toward a profile of cytokines that is less pro-inflammatory.

Meta-analysis as a Diagnostic Tool for Predicting Disease Onset and/or Activity in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
Systemic lupus erythematous (SLE) is a relatively rare disorder with prevalence rates between 5 and 50 per 100,000 population. This means performing any epidemiological analysis in a specific research center is difficult, due to the low number of cases within any one location. There is a need for biomarkers and diagnostic aids to monitor SLE disease activity and severity prior, during, and after treatment. Many specialist lupus clinics worldwide have published trials following in detail small numbers of patients that have been monitored for a disease biomarker, e.g., an autoantibody against a self-molecule in prospective a...

Laboratory Tests for the Antiphospholipid Syndrome
Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune disorder characterized by recurrent vascular thrombosis (VT) and/or pregnancy morbidity (PM) in the presence of persistent antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL), detected by lupus anticoagulant (LA), anticardiolipin (aCL) antibody, and/or anti‐β2 glycoprotein I (aβ2GPI) antibody assays. These aPL, considered to be diagnostic markers and pathogenic drivers of APS, are a heterogeneous group of antibodies directed against anionic phospholipids, phospholipid-binding plasma proteins, and phospholipid–protein complexes. Although APS is currently considered as a s...

Evaluating a Particular Circulating MicroRNA Species from an SLE Patient Using Stem-Loop qRT-PCR
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a complex autoimmune disease, and correct judgment of SLE activity is very important in guiding precise clinical treatment. Circulating microRNAs (miRNAs) could serve as potential biomarkers of disease activity or status in SLE, and here we describe a modified qRT-PCR method for detecting them. Stem loop has become one of the most powerful methods for determining miRNA expression because it is highly sensitive and accurate and requires only small amount of sample. In this chapter, we focus on a stem-loop reverse transcription-bound SYBR green qRT-PCR protocol for evaluating a particula...

Recombinant Antibody Microarray for Profiling the Serum Proteome of SLE
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a severe autoimmune connective tissue disease. Our current knowledge about the serum proteome, or serum biomarker panels, reflecting disease and disease status is still very limited. Affinity proteomics, represented by recombinant antibody arrays, is a novel, multiplex technology for high-throughput protein expression profiling of crude serum proteomes in a highly specific, sensitive, and miniaturized manner. The antibodies are deposited one by one in an ordered pattern, an array, onto a solid support. Next, the sample is added, and any specifically bound proteins are detected and quan...

Detection of Antinuclear Antibodies in SLE
The antinuclear antibodies (ANA) also known as antinuclear factors (ANF) are unwanted molecules which bind and destroy certain structures within the nucleus. In systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), they are produced in excess; hence their detection in the blood of patients is important for diagnosis and monitoring of the disease. Several methods are available which can be used to detect ANA; nevertheless, indirect immunofluorescence antinuclear antibody test (IF-ANA) is considered a “reference method” for their detection. Though IF-ANA is relatively easier to perform, its interpretation requires considerable ski...

Tests for Circulating Immune Complexes
Antigen–antibody complexes in tissues play a central role in the pathogenesis of lupus. Some of the immune complexes are formed in situ, i.e., in the tissues. Others are present in the blood stream, and these circulating immune complexes may deposit in tissues and incite inflammatory mechanisms in those tissues. A variety of techniques are available to measure circulating immune complexes. The assays that have been most studied in SLE include approaches that rely on the interaction of immune complexes with complement proteins, and therefore bind to C1q or contain bound C3.

A weight lifted – Sarah’s Hysterectomy Story
I’ve always had heavy irregular periods and we’re told I should probably consider having children sooner rather than later. I got married at 23 and started trying for a family straight away. I had five miscarriages, numerous tests and had diagnosis ranging from endometriosis – lupus – polycystic ovaries. All of which I felt were guesswork as despite having tests I always felt like I was never really taken seriously. I would bleed heavily for up to 10 days but never had a regular pattern. With the help of a sympathetic gynaecologist I had fertility treatment and when I was 28 I had my twin girls. I ...

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 ...
