Immunol Med 2018 Jun 7;41(2):55-61. Epub 2018 Sep 7.

b Department of Immunology and Rheumatology, Unit of Translational Medicine, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences , Nagasaki University , Nagasaki , Japan.

Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is the most common monogenic autoinflammatory disease, and is characterized by recurrent attacks of fever and polyserositis. It is associated with mutations in the MEFV gene encoding pyrin, which result in inflammasome activation and the uncontrolled production of IL-1β. FMF mainly affects individuals originating from the Mediterranean basin; however, a Japanese nationwide survey demonstrated that FMF is not uncommon in Japan. Read More

Psychotropics in Your Medicine Cabinet: A Case Study of Dimenhydrinate Use.

J Addict Med 2019 Mar 4. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine (XW); Centre of Addiction and Mental Health, Addictions Division (FDP, NC); University of Toronto, Department of Family & Community Medicine (FDP); University of Toronto, Department of Psychiatry, Ontario, Canada (NC).

: Reporting of intoxication and withdrawal from aberrant use of over-the-counter medication has been sparse and inconsistent in literature. Attributed to their anticholinergic properties, medications such as dimenhydrinate (Gravol) taken in supratherapeutic doses have been associated with euphoria, anxiolysis, and hallucinations. We present a case of a woman in her forties, with a psychiatric history of bipolar disorder, and complex concurrent medical history including familial Mediterranean fever (FMF), and fibromyalgia, admitted for withdrawal management of her intravenous dimenhydrinate use.

The Platelet-to-Lymphocyte Ratio as an Inflammatory Marker in Rheumatic Diseases.

Ann Lab Med 2019 Jul;39(4):345-357

Departments of Rheumatology and Research and Development, Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust (Teaching Trust of the University of Birmingham, UK), Russells Hall Hospital, Dudley, West Midlands, UK.

The platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) has emerged as an informative marker revealing shifts in platelet and lymphocyte counts due to acute inflammatory and prothrombotic states. PLR has been extensively examined in neoplastic diseases accompanied by immune suppression and thrombosis, which can be predicted by combined blood cell counts and their ratios. Several large observational studies have demonstrated the value of shifts in PLR in evaluating the severity of systemic inflammation and predicting infections and other comorbidities, in inflammatory rheumatic diseases.

a Unit of Advanced Preventive Medical Sciences , Nagasaki University Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences , Nagasaki , Japan.

Autoinflammatory diseases are characterized by recurrent systemic inflammation due to dysfunction of the innate immune system, and they are originally the hereditary recurrent fever syndromes that develop in early childhood. Many cases are thus diagnosed in the pediatric field, but there are many cases that are not diagnosed until adulthood, including adult-onset cases. Accordingly, not only pediatricians but also rheumatologists and primary care physicians play a major role in the diagnosis and treatment of autoinflammatory diseases. Read More

[Evidence-based treatment recommendations for familial Mediterranean fever : A joint statement by the Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Rheumatology and the German Society for Rheumatology].

Z Rheumatol 2019 Feb;78(1):91-101

Rheumazentrum Ruhrgebiet, Claudiusstr. 45, 44649, Herne, Deutschland.

Background: Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) in Germany is a rare, genetically linked disease of childhood and adolescence, which is characterized by recurrent febrile episodes and clinical signs of peritonitis, pleuritis and arthritis. Treatment with colchicine is effective and well-tolerated in the majority of patients; however, some patients do not sufficiently respond to this treatment or are intolerant to colchicine. For these patients first-line treatment with biologics which block interleukin-1 can be used. Read More

Toll-like receptor 4 promoter polymorphisms in a familial mediterranean fever patient with asymptomatic bacteriuria.

Clin Case Rep 2019 Jan 25;7(1):155-159. Epub 2018 Nov 25.

Japanese Red Cross Society Osaka Japan.

A periodic fever, due to inherited inflammatory disorders, can be misdiagnosed as a common infection, when a possible pathogen is detected from a patient. SNPs that are responsible for asymptomatic bacteriuria might disturb the pathophysiology of familial Mediterranean fever without mutations. Read More

Bile acids are critical metabolites in the gastrointestinal tract and contribute to maintaining intestinal immune homeostasis through cross-talk with the gut microbiota. The conversion of bile acids by the gut microbiome is now recognized as a factor affecting both host metabolism and immune responses, but its physiological roles remain unclear. We conducted a screen for microbiome metabolites that would function as inflammasome activators and herein report the identification of 12-oxo-lithocholic acid (BAA485), a potential microbiome-derived bile acid metabolite.

Neutrophilic Dermatoses Associated with Myeloid Malignancies.

Am J Clin Dermatol 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris, Département de Pathologie, Hôpital Saint-Louis, Paris, France.

Neutrophilic dermatoses (ND) are a group of conditions characterized by an aseptic accumulation of polymorphonuclear leukocytes in the skin. Occurrence of ND in association with myeloid malignancies, mainly myelodysplastic syndrome and myelogenous acute leukemia, is not rare and is often associated with a poor prognosis. Recent findings have improved understanding of the pathophysiology of myeloid malignancy-associated ND. Read More
