Genomic Variations in Susceptibility to Intracranial Aneurysm in the Korean Population.

J Clin Med 2019 Feb 25;8(2). Epub 2019 Feb 25.

Institute of New Frontier Stroke Research, Hallym University College of Medicine, Chuncheon 24252, Korea.

Genome-wide association studies found genetic variations with modulatory effects for intracranial aneurysm (IA) formations in European and Japanese populations. We aimed to identify the susceptibility of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) to IA in a Korean population consisting of 250 patients, and 294 controls using the Asian-specific Axiom Precision Medicine Research Array. Twenty-nine SNPs reached a genome-wide significance threshold (5 × 10). Read More

An Update on Addison's Disease.

Exp Clin Endocrinol Diabetes 2019 Feb 18;127(2-03):165-175. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Department of Medicine III, University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus, Dresden, Germany.

Addison's disease - the traditional term for primary adrenal insufficiency (PAI) - is defined as the clinical manifestation of chronic glucocorticoid- and/or mineralocorticoid deficiency due to failure of the adrenal cortex which may result in an adrenal crisis with potentially life-threatening consequences. Even though efficient and safe pharmaceutical preparations for the substitution of endogenous gluco- and mineralocorticoids are established in therapy, the mortality in patients with PAI is still increased and the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is often reduced.PAI is a rare disease but recent data report an increasing prevalence.

Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Department, Centro Hospitalar e Universitario de Coimbra EPE, Coimbra, Portugal.

Addison's disease (AD) is the most common endocrine manifestation of antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), but it remains a very rare complication of the syndrome.

Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences, College of Medicine, Taipei Medical University, No. 250, Wu Hsing St., Taipei 110, Taiwan.

Platelets play a major role in hemostatic events and are associated with various pathological events, such as arterial thrombosis and atherosclerosis. Iridium (Ir) compounds are potential alternatives to platinum compounds, since they exert promising anticancer effects without cellular toxicity. Our recent studies found that Ir compounds show potent antiplatelet properties. Read More

Platelet aggregation response in immune thrombocytopenia patients treated with romiplostim.

Ann Hematol 2019 Mar 17;98(3):581-588. Epub 2018 Nov 17.

Division of Hematology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Zero Emerson Place, Harvard Medical School, Suite 118, Boston, MA, 02114, USA.

The thrombopoietin receptor agonist romiplostim is used for the long-term treatment of chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). ITP patients have an increased thrombotic risk, which could be exacerbated if romiplostim increased platelet hyperreactivity or caused spontaneous platelet aggregation. To investigate this possibility, this study examined platelet function in romiplostim-treated ITP patients and healthy subjects. Read More

Antiglomerular Basement Membrane Disease.

Semin Respir Crit Care Med 2018 08 7;39(4):494-503. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Department of Medicine, Centre for Inflammatory Disease, Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom.

Antiglomerular basement membrane (anti-GBM) disease is a rare but life-threatening autoimmune vasculitis that is characterized by the development of pathogenic autoantibodies to type IV collagen antigens expressed in the glomerular and alveolar basement membranes. Once deposited in tissue, these autoantibodies incite a local capillaritis which manifests as rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (GN) in 80 to 90% of patients, and with concurrent alveolar hemorrhage in ∼50%. A small proportion of cases may present with pulmonary disease in isolation. Read More

Alveolar Hemorrhage in Vasculitis (Primary and Secondary).

Semin Respir Crit Care Med 2018 08 7;39(4):482-493. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Department of Respiratory Medicine, Hospices Civils de Lyon, National Reference Center for Rare Pulmonary Diseases, Lyon, France.

Defined by the accumulation of red blood cells into the alveolar space, diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH) is a severe and potentially fatal medical condition requiring careful attention. In contrast to simple extravasation of erythrocytes facilitated by impaired hemostasis or hemodynamic causes, DAH in vasculitis is due to capillaritis, that is, inflammation of capillaries. Dyspnea, hemoptysis, chest infiltrates, and abrupt fall of blood hemoglobin level represent the cardinal features of DAH; yet, hemoptysis is lacking in one-third of cases. Read More

The first case of thrombocytopenia, anasarca, fever, renal impairment or reticulin fibrosis, and organomegaly (TAFRO) syndrome with unilateral adrenal necrosis: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2018 Oct 8;12(1):295. Epub 2018 Oct 8.

Department of General Internal Medicine, Musashino Red Cross Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: TAFRO syndrome, which was first reported in 2010 in Japan, is a relatively rare disease characterized by thrombocytopenia, anasarca, fever, renal impairment, reticulin fibrosis, and organomegaly. Although this disease is considered similar to multicentric Castleman disease, some of the clinical features, such as thrombocytopenia, are different from typical cases of multicentric Castleman disease. In addition, the etiology of TAFRO syndrome remains unknown and controversial. Read More

Immune-Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura is a Rare Cause of Ischemic Stroke in Young Adults: Case Reports and Literature Review.

J Stroke Cerebrovasc Dis 2018 Nov 12;27(11):3163-3171. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Department of Neurology, CHU de Bordeaux, Bordeaux, France / Except Yahsou Delmas: Department of Nephrology, CHU de Bordeaux, Bordeaux, France.

Introduction: Immune thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (i-TTP), related to acquired ADAMTS-13 dysfunction, can lead to various neurological symptoms including ischemic stroke. To date the clinical, radiological, and biological characteristics of patients having a stroke as the inaugural manifestation of i-TTP are largely unknown.

Methods: Probable immune-TTP was defined by a low ADAMTS-13 activity associated with the presence of ADAMTS-13 inhibitors and/or favorable clinicobiological response under immunological treatments. Read More
