We have identified an autoantigen that is recognized by antibodies from an 18-year-old female with a history of recurrent infections who later in her clinical course developed Raynaud's phenomenon and telangiectasias. By indirect immunofluorescence (IIF), the index serum produced a unique...
Acute and chronic infectious prostatitis are the best understood of the prostate syndromes, but they are the least frequent. In contrast, although chronic non-infectious prostatitis is the most frequent syndrome, its cause has proved elusive despite years of investigation. In the present study,...
Bromelain is a mixture of proteinases derived from pineapple stem that is marketed in health food stores as a “digestive aid”. Orally administered bromelain was anecdotally reported to induce clinical and endoscopic remission of ulcerative colitis in two patients whose disease was refractory...
We evaluated peptides demonstrated to be immunogenic in studies of HLA-DRB1*0405-restricted T cells from patients with Vogt–Koyanagi–Harada (VKH) disease for likelihood of binding to HLA-DRB1*0405 using internet-accessible algorithms. Immunogenic peptides were more likely to overlap with...
We investigate the immunomodulator role of prolactin (PRL) on CD4 + and B cell activation from healthy subjects in comparison with hyperprolactinemic patients. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells, CD4 + or B cells, purified, were cultured under different conditions, as follows: with mitogen,...
Region-specific reference ranges for adult peripheral blood lymphocyte subsets have been established in few countries around the world, but most studies were restricted to younger adults for monitoring of HIV patients. The aim of this investigation was to establish age- and gender-specific...
Tuberculous (TB) pleurisy and parapneumonic effusion (PPE) are common causes of pleural fibrosis. The mechanisms underlying fibrin deposition may be different since involved inflammatory cells are distinct. In this study, we measured various cytokines and fibrinolytic enzymes and compared the...
Tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα) plays a key role in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and most patients treated with anti-TNFα agents show significant improvement in both signs and symptoms. While TNFα inhibitors rapidly reduce joint inflammation, the mechanisms by which these...
Objective: Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients produce autoantibodies to HRES-1/p28, a human endogenous retrovirus-encoded nuclear protein. To identify cross-reactive viral antigens capable of triggering autoreactivity, HRES-1/p28 epitopes were mapped by SLE antibodies. Methods:...
