Therapeutic Potential of Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Hydrogen Sulfide (HS) in Hemolytic and Hemorrhagic Vascular Disorders-Interaction between the Heme Oxygenase and HS-Producing Systems.

Int J Mol Sci 2020 Dec 23;22(1). Epub 2020 Dec 23.

Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, University of Debrecen, 4032 Debrecen, Hungary.

Over the past decades, substantial work has established that hemoglobin oxidation and heme release play a pivotal role in hemolytic/hemorrhagic disorders. Recent reports have shown that oxidized hemoglobins, globin-derived peptides, and heme trigger diverse biological responses, such as toll-like receptor 4 activation with inflammatory response, reprogramming of cellular metabolism, differentiation, stress, and even death. Here, we discuss these cellular responses with particular focus on their mechanisms that are linked to the pathological consequences of hemorrhage and hemolysis. Read More

Acute haemorrhagic oedema of infancy: a condition that is not always benign.

BMJ Case Rep 2020 Nov 2;13(11). Epub 2020 Nov 2.

Department of Human Pathology in Adult and Developmental Age 'Gaetano Barresi', University of Messina, Messina, Sicilia, Italy

Acute haemorrhagic oedema of infancy (AHOI) is a rare condition and an unusual diagnosis for the paediatrician, as approximately 300 cases have been reported in literature so far. Although it was considered for years a less serious variant of Henoch-Schönlein purpura, nowadays it is thought to be a different entity, with his own characteristics and clinical outcome. In literature it is described as a benign condition, self-limiting and without any systemic involvement in most of the cases. Read More
