Role of TL1A/DR3 Axis in the Activation of ILC2s in Eosinophilic Asthmatics.

Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2020 Jun 25. Epub 2020 Jun 25.

McMaster University, 3710, Medicine, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada;

Rationale: Group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s) are critical for type 2 inflammation. In murine models of asthma, some ILC2s remain activated in the absence of epithelial-derived cytokine signaling, implicating alternate stimulatory pathways. Death receptor 3 (DR3), a member of the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily is expressed on ILC2s and genome wide association studies report an association between DR3 ligand, TNF like protein 1A (TL1A), and chronic inflammatory conditions.

Introduction: The Drug Reaction with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms (DRESS) syndrome is a severe, multiorganic, and potentially life-threatening drug-induced hypersensitivity reaction, linked to several common drugs, including antiepileptics, antibiotics, and several psychotropic drugs, including clozapine. Due to the importance of clozapine in the management of treatment-resistant schizophrenia, a systematic review and characterization of clozapine-related DRESS syndrome is long overdue.

Areas Covered: This systematic review was conducted following PRISMA guidelines. Read More

Eosinophil-Mediated Immune Control of Adult Filarial Nematode Infection Can Proceed in the Absence of IL-4 Receptor Signaling.

J Immunol 2020 Jun 22. Epub 2020 Jun 22.

Centre for Drugs and Diagnostics, Department of Tropical Disease Biology, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, Liverpool L3 5QA, United Kingdom

Helminth infections are accompanied by eosinophilia in parasitized tissues. Eosinophils are effectors of immunity to tissue helminths. We previously reported that in the context of experimental filarial nematode infection, optimum tissue eosinophil recruitment was coordinated by local macrophage populations following IL-4R-dependent in situ proliferation and alternative activation.

Predictors of Disease Control After Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Plus Long-Term Local Corticosteroids in CRSwNP.

Am J Rhinol Allergy 2020 Jun 20:1945892420936196. Epub 2020 Jun 20.

Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli IRCCS, Rome, Italy.

Background: in the era of new biological agents it is important to identify patients who may benefit from conventional therapies such as endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) plus long-term local corticosteroids from those with patterns of inflammation that are more difficult to control post-operatively and who may benefit from other therapies.

Objective: determine if preoperative assessment of type and grade of inflammation and clinical factors can predict disease control with ESS plus long-term local corticosteroids in chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP).

Methods: Eighty patients treated with ESS plus mometasone-furoate 200 μg BID for CRSwNP and followed for at least 1 year were enrolled (November 2017-December 2018) in this prospective observational study. Read More
