Jun 9th, 2021 - To develop updated guidelines for the pharmacologic management of rheumatoid arthritis. We developed clinically relevant population, intervention, comparator, and outcomes (PICO) questions. After conducting a systematic literature review, the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) approach was used to rate the certainty of evidence. A voting panel comprising c...

May 8th, 2022 - Background: Long COVID (coronavirus disease 2019) syndrome includes a group of patients who, after infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), exhibit lingering mild-to-moderate symptoms and develop medical complications that can have lasting health problems. In this report, we propose a model for the pathophysiology of the long COVID presentation based on incre...

Apr 26th, 2022 - Progressive pseudorheumatoid dysplasia (PPRD) is a rare autosomal recessive non-inflammatory skeletal disease with childhood onset and is characterized by a progressive chondropathy in multiple joints, and skeletal abnormalities. To date, the etiopathological relationship between biological modification occurring in PPRD and genetic mutation remains an open issue, partially due to the limited a...

Apr 26th, 2022 - Identifying new markers of juvenile systemic lupus erythematosus (JSLE) is critical event to predict patient stratification and prognosis. The aim of the present study is to analyze alteration of urinary protein expression and screen potential valuable biomarkers in juvenile systemic lupus erythematosus (JSLE). The urine was collected from the patients with or without JSLE and detected by mass ...

Apr 26th, 2022 - Immune system dysfunction has been described in autism spectrum disorder. Here we tested the hypothesis that cerebellar defects are accompanied by immune dysfunction in adult mice lacking the autism-candidate gene Engrailed 2 (En2). Gene ontology analyses revealed that biological processes related to immune function were over-represented in the cerebellar transcriptome of En2-/- mice. Pro-infla...

Mar 26th, 2022 - In Germany, the first case of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was registered on 28 January 2020. By February 2021, the third wave of the pandemic began. So far, only few data are available on the SARS-CoV-2 prevalence and the clinical impact of an infection in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). From February 2020 until March 2021, we screened 156 CF patients for anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgG antibod...

Mar 23rd, 2022 - Hepatitis-associated aplastic anemia (HAAA) is a specific type of aplastic anemia, and hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation (HSCT) is recommended as the first-line. Acute rhabdomyolysis (AR) during hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation (HSCT) is a rare, serious complication, with only 10 cases reported in the world so far. Herein, we present a case of AR developing during HLA-haploidentica...

Mar 23rd, 2022 - Opportunistic Candida species causes severe infections when the human immune system is weakened, leading to high mortality. In our study, bioinformatics analysis was used to study the high-throughput sequencing data of samples infected with four kinds of Candida species. And the hub genes were obtained by statistical analysis. A total of 547, 422, 415 and 405 differentially expressed genes (DEG...

Mar 23rd, 2022 - The vasopressin V2 receptor antagonist tolvaptan is the only drug that has been proven to be nephroprotective in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). Tolvaptan also causes polyuria, limiting tolerability. We hypothesized that cotreatment with hydrochlorothiazide or metformin may ameliorate this side effect. We performed a clinical study and an animal study. In a randomized, con...

Mar 22nd, 2022 - The importance of cell pyroptosis in immunity regulation is becoming increasingly obvious, especially in diseases of the cardiovascular system. Nevertheless, it is unknown whether the pyroptosis signalling pathway is involved in the immune microenvironment regulation of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). Therefore, the purpose of the study was to investigate the influence of pyroptosis on the immune...

Mar 22nd, 2022 - Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) has been increasingly used in COVID-19 patients. The limited physiological monitoring and the unavailability of respiratory mechanic measures, usually obtainable during invasive ventilation, is a limitation of NIV for ARDS and COVID-19 patients management. This pilot study was aimed to evaluate the feasibility of non-invasively monitoring respiratory mechanics by ...

Mar 21st, 2022 - Cerebral intraparenchymal masses represent usually a neoplastic, or infectious differential diagnostic workup in neurology or infectious disease units. Our patient was an 82-year-old male presenting with seizures, cerebral masses and a history of past treated pulmonary tuberculosis. Initial workup included a differential diagnosis of an infectious mass/multiple abscess. After exclusion of infec...

Mar 19th, 2022 - PAP is an ultra-rare respiratory syndrome characterized by the accumulation of surfactant within the alveoli. Whole lung lavage (WLL) is the current standard of care of PAP, however it is not a standardized procedure and the total amount of fluid used to wash each lung is still debated. Considering ICU hospitalization associated risks, a "mini-WLL" with anticipated manual clapping and reduced t...

Mar 16th, 2022 - Background Mutations in ATP1A2 gene encoding the Na,K-ATPase α2 isoform are associated with familial hemiplegic migraine type 2. Migraine with aura is a known risk factor for heart disease. The Na,K-ATPase is important for cardiac function, but its role for heart disease remains unknown. We hypothesized that ATP1A2 is a susceptibility gene for heart disease and aimed to assess the underlying di...
