Hematological and Extra-Hematological Autoimmune Complications after Checkpoint Inhibitors.

Pharmaceuticals (Basel) 2022 Apr 30;15(5). Epub 2022 Apr 30.

Fondazione IRCCS Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, 20122 Milan, Italy.

Checkpoint inhibitors (CPI) represent a novel therapeutical strategy with a high efficacy both in solid and hematological cancers. They act by reactivating the immune system against neoplastic cells but may, in turn, cause immune-related adverse events (IRAEs) involving several organs with variable frequency and severity. Up to 10% of CPI-treated patients experience hematological IRAEs, mainly cytopenias. Read More

Therapeutic approaches and targets for treatment of autoimmune bullous diseases.

Dermatol Ther 2021 09 14;34(5):e15032. Epub 2021 Jul 14.

Department of Specialized, Clinical and Experimental medicine, Division of Dermatology, University of Bologna, Italy.

Autoimmune bullous diseases are a heterogeneous group of diseases characterized by the development of cutaneous and mucosal vesicles, blisters, and finally erosions. The common pathogenetic mechanism is the presence of autoantibodies targeting structural proteins of the skin and mucous membranes (demosomes and hemidesmosomes): in the case of pemphigus, the antigens are intraepidermal, whereas in the case of pemphigoid, dermatitis herpetiformis, and epidermolysis bullosa acquisita they are subepidermal. Mucosal involvement typically affects the oral and ocular mucosa, but in some cases, the upper airways or the upper digestive tract are affected. Read More

Aquaporins and diseases pathogenesis: From trivial to undeniable involvements, a disease-based point of view.

J Cell Physiol 2021 09 8;236(9):6115-6135. Epub 2021 Feb 8.

Experimental Medicine Research Center, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Aquaporins (AQPs), as transmembrane proteins, were primarily identified as water channels with the ability of regulating the transmission of water, glycerol, urea, and other small-sized molecules. The classic view of AQPs involvement in therapeutic plan restricted them and their regulators into managing only a narrow spectrum of the diseases such as diabetes insipidus and the syndrome of inappropriate ADH secretion. However, further investigations performed, especially in the third millennium, has found that their cooperation in water transmission control can be manipulated to handle other burden-imposing diseases such as cirrhosis, heart failure, Meniere's disease, cancer, bullous pemphigoid, eczema, and Sjögren's syndrome.
