Behcet's disease is a condition with a complicated and unclear etiology that comprises multi-systemic, chronic, inflammatory vasculitis. Behcet's disease can affect every tissue and organ in the body, and is characterized by recurrent oral and genital ulcers, ocular inflammation, skin lesions, and other manifestations. The incidence of Behcet's disease has a distinct regional specificity, and is most prevalent along the Silk Road, a route that stretched between the Mediterranean, Middle East and Far East.

OUTCOMES OF ELTROMBOPAG TREATMENT AND DEVELOPMENT OF IRON DEFICIENCY IN CHILDREN WITH IMMUNE THROMBOCYTOPENIA IN TURKEY

Turk J Haematol 2020 Mar 17. Epub 2020 Mar 17.

Department of Pediatric Hematology, Ankara City Hospital, Ankara, Turkey

Objective: Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is a rare autoimmune disease and hematologic disorder characterized by reduced platelet counts that can result in significant symptoms, such as bleeding, bruising, epistaxis or petechiae. The thrombopoietin receptor agonist, eltrombopag is second-line agents used to treat chronic immune thrombocytopenia purpura in adults and children.

Methods: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy, safety and side effects, especially iron deficiency of eltrombopag treatment in pediatric patients with acute refractory and chronic immune thrombocytopenia. Read More

Genital ulcers may be located on the vagina, penis, and anorectal or perineal areas and may be infectious or noninfectious. Herpes simplex virus is the most common cause of genital ulcers in the United States. A diagnosis of genital herpes simplex virus infection is made through physical examination and observation of genital lesions. Read More

Identification of an Unconventional Subpeptidome Bound to the Behçet's Disease-associated HLA-B*51:01 that is Regulated by Endoplasmic Reticulum Aminopeptidase 1 (ERAP1).

Mol Cell Proteomics 2020 May 11;19(5):871-883. Epub 2020 Mar 11.

Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK.

Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) B*51:01 and endoplasmic reticulum aminopeptidase 1 (ERAP1) are strongly genetically associated with Behçet's disease (BD). Previous studies have defined two subgroups of HLA-B*51 peptidome containing proline (Pro) or alanine (Ala) at position 2 (P2). Little is known about the unconventional non-Pro/Ala2 HLA-B*51-bound peptides. Read More

Discriminative expression of CD39 and CD73 in Cerebrospinal fluid of patients with Multiple Sclerosis and Neuro-Behçet's disease.

Institut Pasteur de Tunis, LTCII, LR11IPT02, Tunis 1002, Tunisia; Faculty of Medicine of Tunis, 1006, Tunisia. Electronic address:

Treg-mediated immune suppression involves many molecular mechanisms including the cleavage of inflammatory extracellular ATP to adenosine by CD39 ectoenzyme. In the peripheral blood of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients, it has been suggested that CD39+ Treg cells have the potential to suppress pro-inflammatory IL-17 secreting cells. Herein, we studied cellular phenotype and mRNA expression of CD39 and CD73 ectoenzymes in the Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of MS patients and another neuro-inflammatory disease: the Neuro-behçet's disease (NBD).
