Systemic lupus erythematosus associated with development of macrophage activation syndrome and disseminated aspergillosis
CONCLUSIONS: Four features of this case merit discussion, including the: 1) infrequent association of SLE with MAS; 2) short interval between SLE diagnosis and critical illness; 3) manifestation of fungal tracheobronchitis with airway obstruction; and 4) lack of response to antifungal treatment while receiving ECMO.PMID:37349668 | DOI:10.1007/s12630-023-02506-2

Exploring the risk factors for ischemic cerebrovascular disease in systemic lupus erythematosus: A single-center case-control study
ConclusionCutaneous vasculitis and antiphospholipid antibodies (aPLs) are associated with an increased risk of ICVD, while HCQ therapy may provide protection against ICVD in SLE. The ICVD in younger lupus patients is associated with complement-mediated inflammation and poorer outcome, and require immunosuppressive therapy, whereas the ICVD in elderly patients are characterized by moderate ICAS and carotid atherosclerotic plaques.

Effects of Antimalarial Drugs on Neuroinflammation-Potential Use for Treatment of COVID-19-Related Neurologic Complications
AbstractThe SARS-CoV-2 virus that is the cause of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) affects not only peripheral organs such as the lungs and blood vessels, but also the central nervous system (CNS) —as seen by effects on smell, taste, seizures, stroke, neuropathological findings and possibly, loss of control of respiration resulting in silent hypoxemia. COVID-19 induces an inflammatory response and, in severe cases, a cytokine storm that can damage the CNS. Antimalarials have unique properti es that distinguish them from other anti-inflammatory drugs. (A) They are very lipophilic, which enhances their ability to cross ...

Pharmacological and cardiovascular perspectives on the treatment of COVID-19 with chloroquine derivatives.
Abstract The novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and an ongoing severe pandemic. Curative drugs specific for COVID-19 are currently lacking. Chloroquine phosphate and its derivative hydroxychloroquine, which have been used in the treatment and prevention of malaria and autoimmune diseases for decades, were found to inhibit SARS-CoV-2 infection with high potency in vitro and have shown clinical and virologic benefits in COVID-19 patients. Therefore, chloroquine phosphate was first used in the treatment of COVID-19 in China. Later, under a lim...
