CD47 and signal regulatory protein (SIRP) interactions have been proposed to take part in autoimmune disease susceptibility. Importantly, a recent genome-wide association study for type 1 diabetes susceptibility highlighted the association of the 20p13 region comprising the SIRP cluster, where...
The purpose of the present study was to develop a peptide for treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). We have tested the effect of a novel anti-inflammatory peptide (KGHYAERVG, termed IIIM1) on experimental autoimmune encephalitis (EAE), an animal model of MS. Our findings demonstrate significant...
Objective To determine aggregation of autoimmune diseases in the first degree relatives (FDR) of patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) and to investigate frequencies of antinuclear antibodies (ANA) and other autoantibodies in the FDRs and spouses of patients with SSc.
DNA demethylation and histone hyperacetylation of CD11a and CD70 regulatory regions contribute to the development of autoreactivity and autoantibody overstimulation in CD4 + T cells of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). However, the mechanisms causing these changes remain largely...
Membrane (m)IgD forms a major part of B-cell receptor complexes. Its wider role in the immune system has been enigmatic. Stimulation of mIgD with an antibody (anti-IgD) can activate B-cells and elicit a broad immune response in vivo . Given the role of B-cells in autoimmune diseases and the...
The aggressive phenotype of RA synovial fibroblasts (RASF) is characterised by the increased expression of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-1 as well as the small ubiquitin like modifier (SUMO)-1 and decreased expression of SUMO-specific protease SENP1. Since we showed an increased activity of...
Antibodies reactive with the ovarian glycoprotein zona pellucida (ZP) have been linked with human female infertility. Anti-fertility vaccines that target ZP antigens have been utilized to restrict pest animal populations and their efficacy is associated with ovary-specific antibody induction....
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is caused by autoimmune destruction of insulin-producing pancreatic β cells in the islets of Langerhans. Although defects in various T cell subsets have been linked to the disease pathogenesis, mechanisms initiating or enhancing the autoimmunity in prediabetes remain poorly...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory joint disease characterized by a distinctive pattern of bone and joint destruction. RA patients have an increased risk of death. The incidence and prevalence of RA vary across populations, statistical methods, and disease definitions. In North...
