Autoinflammatory Diseases in Childhood.

Balkan Med J 2020 Apr 27. Epub 2020 Apr 27.

Department of Pediatric Rheumatology, İstanbul University-Cerrahpaşa Cerrahpaşa School of Medicine, İstanbul, Turkey.

Autoinflammatory diseases are characterized by recurrent fever attacks and clinical findings that arise from impaired natural immunity and spread to a wide variety of organ systems. The concept of autoinflammatory disease emerged after the definition of familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) and Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor Associated Periodic Syndrome (TRAPS). Firstly, it is thought that this new group differs from the standard concept of autoimmune diseases, which is relatively better known in terms of basic features such as defects in innate immunity and the absence of antibodies.

Clin Exp Immunol 2020 Apr 11. Epub 2020 Apr 11.

Department of Medical Oncology, Haematology, Clinical Immunology and Rheumatology, University Hospital Tübingen, Tübingen, Germany.

Dendritic cells (DCs) are sentinels of the immune system that bridge innate and adaptive immunity. By capturing antigens in peripheral tissue, processing and presenting them with concurrent expression of co-stimulatory molecules and cytokine secretion they control and modulate immune reactions. Through pattern recognition receptors, DCs sense molecules that are associated with infection or tissue damage, frequently resulting in the formation of inflammasomes upon intracellular stimulation.

Altered expression of apoptosis-related, circulating cell-free miRNAs in children with familial Mediterranean fever: a cross-sectional study.

Rheumatol Int 2020 Mar 5. Epub 2020 Mar 5.

Department of Pediatric Rheumatology, Faculty of Medicine, Cukurova University, Adana, Turkey.

Objectives: Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) is the most common hereditary autoinflammatory disorder characterized by recurrent fever and serositis episodes. Identification of low penetrant or heterozygous MEFV mutations in clinically diagnosed FMF patients did raise a concern on whether epigenetic or environmental factors play an additional role in FMF pathogenesis. We aimed to investigate the expression profile of apoptosis-related miRNAs in FMF and their influence on clinical manifestations in the present study. Read More

Validation of the new classification criteria for hereditary recurrent fever in an independent cohort: experience from the JIR Cohort Database.

Rheumatology (Oxford) 2020 Mar 3. Epub 2020 Mar 3.

National Referral Centre of Auto-Inflammatory Diseases and Inflammatory Amyloidosis, - CEREMAIA, Department of Pediatrics, Versailles Hospital, Le Chesnay.

Objective: The new classification criteria for the hereditary recurrent fever (HRF) syndrome [cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome (CAPS), TNF-α receptor-associated periodic syndrome (TRAPS), FMF and mevalonate kinase deficiency] have been published recently. These criteria define two core sets of criteria for each HRF: mixed criteria, including genetic and clinical variables, and clinical criteria, relying on clinical variables only. Our aim was to validate the criteria for HRF in an independent cohort, the JIR Cohort database, an international repository of systemic inflammatory diseases. Read More
