Autoinflammatory Diseases in Childhood.

Balkan Med J 2020 Apr 27. Epub 2020 Apr 27.

Department of Pediatric Rheumatology, İstanbul University-Cerrahpaşa Cerrahpaşa School of Medicine, İstanbul, Turkey.

Autoinflammatory diseases are characterized by recurrent fever attacks and clinical findings that arise from impaired natural immunity and spread to a wide variety of organ systems. The concept of autoinflammatory disease emerged after the definition of familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) and Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor Associated Periodic Syndrome (TRAPS). Firstly, it is thought that this new group differs from the standard concept of autoimmune diseases, which is relatively better known in terms of basic features such as defects in innate immunity and the absence of antibodies.

Detection of sasX Gene and Distribution of SCCmec types in Invasive and Non-invasive Coagulase Negative Staphylococci

Balkan Med J 2020 04 9. Epub 2020 Apr 9.

Department of Medical Microbiology, Ankara University School of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey.

Background: Coagulase negative staphylococci (CoNS) which belong to normal microbiata of the skin and mucous membranes are opportunistic pathogens. SasX, a newly described protein is thought to play an important role in nasal colonization and virulence of meticillin-resistant (MRSA) and it may be acquired from CoNS by horizontal gene transfer. It has been considered that understanding the function of gene may help in clarifying the relevance of the different adhesion mechanisms in the pathogenesis of infections associated with biofilm.
