We describe a case of vitreous amyloidosis without systemic symptoms in familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP) associated with Val30Met transthyretin mutation. A healthy 74-year-old woman noticed left blurred vision and floaters in 1992. Severe vitreous opacities were identified in the left...
Patients with AL amyloidosis were treated with VAD (vincristine, doxorubicin and dexamethasone) with or without high-dose melphalan followed by auto-PBSCT according to eligibility criteria based on disease severity, and prospectively investigated the therapeutic benefits and complications....
Localized amyloidosis in the ureter is a rare condition, in which immunoglobulin light chain is locally synthesized, causing thickening of ureteric walls by deposits of immunoglobulin-related amyloid. Since the clinical features of ureteral amyloidosis with ureteric stricture and/or...
Although more than 20 different proteins are now associated with the amyloidoses, the fibrils share many properties. Despite disparity in primary and tertiary structures of the subunit proteins, assembled fibrils exhibit similar morphology, binding of Congo red, interaction with Thioflavine T,...
We report a characteristic finding in gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance images (MRIs) of the central nervous system (CNS) in a 61-year-old man with a homozygous transthyretin (TTR) Val30Met mutation. Although he presented with polyneuropathy accompanied by autonomic dysfunction and vitreous...
Amyloid protofibril formation of phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK) and Syrian hamster prion protein (SHaPrP(90-232)) were investigated by static and dynamic light scattering, size exclusion chromatography and electron microscopy. Changes in secondary structure were monitored by Fourier transform...
