Seizures as a clinical manifestation in somatic autoimmune disorders.

Seizure 2019 Jan 5;64:59-64. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Stichting Epilepsie Instellingen Nederland (SEIN), Achterweg 5, Heemstede, 2103SW, Netherlands; NIHR University College London Hospitals Biomedical Research Centre, UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, London, WC1N 3BG, United Kingdom; Chalfont Centre for Epilepsy, Chalfont St Peter, Bucks, SL9 0RJ, United Kingdom.

The risk of epileptic seizures seems increased in several systemic autoimmune disorders including systemic lupus erythematosus, type 1 diabetes mellitus, myasthenia gravis, celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto's encephalopathy, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis optica, and bullous pemphigoid. Immune dysfunction may be partly responsible for this association. Elevated levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines, autoantibodies seen in these autoimmune disorders and antibodies against neuronal antigens may contribute to the etiopathogenesis of seizures and epilepsy associated to immune conditions.

Targeted Therapies for Autoimmune Bullous Diseases: Current Status.

Drugs 2018 Oct;78(15):1527-1548

Department of Dermatology, Philipps University, Baldingerstr., 35043, Marburg, Germany.

Autoimmune bullous skin disorders are rare but meaningful chronic inflammatory diseases, many of which had a poor or devastating prognosis prior to the advent of immunosuppressive drugs such as systemic corticosteroids, which down-regulate the immune pathogenesis in these disorders. Glucocorticoids and adjuvant immunosuppressive drugs have been of major benefit for the fast control of most of these disorders, but their long-term use is limited by major side effects such as blood cytopenia, osteoporosis, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and gastrointestinal ulcers. In recent years, major efforts were made to identify key elements in the pathogenesis of autoimmune bullous disorders, leading to the identification of their autoantigens, which are mainly located in desmosomes (pemphigus) and the basement membrane zone (pemphigoids).

Is there an association between dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors and autoimmune disease? A population-based study.

Immunol Res 2018 06;66(3):425-430

Department of Quality Measurements and Research, Chief Physician's Office, Clalit Health Services, Tel Aviv, Israel.

The association of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors (DPP4is) with autoimmune diseases is controversial. While these agents were proposed as a novel therapeutic approach for several inflammatory diseases by blocking T cell proliferation and cytokine production, they were found to trigger inflammatroy bowel disease, inflammatory arthritis and bullous pemphigoid. Our objective is to examine the association between DPP4i and autoimmune diseases. Read More

Bullous Pemphigoid Triggered by Thermal Burn Under Medication With a Dipeptidyl Peptidase-IV Inhibitor: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Front Immunol 2018 12;9:542. Epub 2018 Apr 12.

Department of Dermatology, Hokkaido University Graduate School of Medicine, Sapporo, Japan.

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is a common autoimmune blistering disease in which autoantibodies mainly target the hemidesmosomal component BP180 (also known as type XVII collagen) in basal keratinocytes. Various triggering factors are known to induce BP onset, including radiotherapy, burns, ultraviolet exposure, surgery, and the use of dipeptidyl peptidase-IV inhibitors (DPP4i), which are widely used antihyperglycemic drugs. Here, we present a case of BP triggered by a thermal burn under medication with DPP4i. Read More

Evaluation of prolactin levels in patients with newly diagnosed pemphigus vulgaris and its correlation with pemphigus disease area index.

Int J Womens Dermatol 2016 Jun 23;2(2):53-55. Epub 2016 Apr 23.

Department of Dermatology, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Background: Prolactin is a hormone; in addition to it known roles, it has immunomodulatory effects on lymphocytes maturation and immunoglobulins production. Hyperprolactinemia has been demonstrated in various autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, type I diabetes mellitus, and Graves' disease. In view of the prolactin immunomodulatory roles, studying prolactin levels in pemphigus as an autoimmune blistering disease may introduce new ways of understanding disease etiology and developing treatment strategies.

Three Cases of Bullous Pemphigoid Associated with Dipeptidyl Peptidase-4 Inhibitors - One due to Linagliptin.

Dermatology 2016 28;232(2):249-53. Epub 2016 Jan 28.

Department of Dermatology, Hospital Universitario Virgen Macarena, Seville, Spain.

Background: Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is an acquired subepidermal autoimmune blistering disease in which there are humoral and cellular responses against the BP180 and BP230 antigens. Dipeptidyl peptidase (DPP)-4 inhibitors enhance endogenous glucagon peptide-1 and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide secretion with food intake, which leads to insulin secretion, as well as to the reduction of glucagon secretion. Recently, several cases of DPP-4 inhibitor-associated BP have been reported. Read More

Mechanobiological dysregulation of the epidermis and dermis in skin disorders and in degeneration.

J Cell Mol Med 2013 Jul 15;17(7):817-22. Epub 2013 May 15.

Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Nippon Medical School, Tokyo, Japan.

During growth and development, the skin expands to cover the growing skeleton and soft tissues by constantly responding to the intrinsic forces of underlying skeletal growth as well as to the extrinsic mechanical forces from body movements and external supports. Mechanical forces can be perceived by two types of skin receptors: (1) cellular mechanoreceptors/mechanosensors, such as the cytoskeleton, cell adhesion molecules and mechanosensitive (MS) ion channels, and (2) sensory nerve fibres that produce the somatic sensation of mechanical force. Skin disorders in which there is an abnormality of collagen [e. Read More
