Monitoring neuroaxonal loss in multiple sclerosis is an important objective to study the pathogenesis and response to treatment of the disease. The release of neurofilaments is a potential surrogate biomarker of neurodegeneration. One route to explore this aspect further is through the use of...
Recent findings provide evidence of inflammasome critical role in the predisposition to autoimmune disorders. The involvement of inflammasome in the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) has been hypothesized even if no significant association within inflammasome genes mutations or...
Tregs play an important role in controlling immune responses, particularly autoimmunity. In NOD mouse model, an excellent model for autoimmune diabetes, transfer of Tregs was shown to prevent diabetes, whereas depletion of Tregs in vivo enhanced disease progression, suggesting that Treg...
Circulating autoantibodies to beta cell antigens are present in the majority of patients with Type 1 diabetes. These autoantibodies can be detected before and at time of clinical diagnosis of disease. Although the role of autoantibodies in the pathogenesis of the disease is debated, their...
Introduction. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease characterised by the formation of autoantibodies against nuclear components. Disturbed apoptosis and reduced clearance of apoptotic material have been assigned a role in the pathogenesis of SLE. During apoptosis, apoptotic...
Objectives: There have been few reports on the association of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) with anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antigen (ANCA)-associated systemic vasculitides. Methods: Here we present four cases of RA overlapping with Wegener's granulomatosis (WG), microscopic polyangiitis (MPA) and...
Although it is evident that there is complex interplay among genetic and environmental factors contributing to systemic autoimmunity, the events inciting autoreactivity are incompletely understood. Previously we demonstrated that MRL-MpJ mice posses a genetic background susceptible to...
