Immune Thrombocytopenia: Recent Advances in Pathogenesis and Treatments.

Hemasphere 2021 Jun 1;5(6):e574. Epub 2021 Jun 1.

Service de Médecine Interne et Immunologie Clinique, Centre de Référence Constitutif des Cytopénies Auto-immunes de l'adulte, Centre Hospitalo-Universitaire Dijon Bourgogne, Université de Bourgogne Franche-Comté, Dijon, France.

Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is a rare autoimmune disease due to both a peripheral destruction of platelets and an inappropriate bone marrow production. Although the primary triggering factors of ITP remain unknown, a loss of immune tolerance-mostly represented by a regulatory T-cell defect-allows T follicular helper cells to stimulate autoreactive splenic B cells that differentiate into antiplatelet antibody-producing plasma cells. Glycoprotein IIb/IIIa is the main target of antiplatelet antibodies leading to platelet phagocytosis by splenic macrophages, through interactions with Fc gamma receptors (FcγRs) and complement receptors.

Progress and challenges in the treatment of cardiac amyloidosis: a review of the literature.

ESC Heart Fail 2021 Jun 5. Epub 2021 Jun 5.

Department of Cardiology, Emergency Institute for Cardiovascular Diseases 'Prof. Dr. C. C. Iliescu', 3rd Cardiology Department, 258 Fundeni Street, Bucharest, 022328, Romania.

Cardiac amyloidosis is a restrictive cardiomyopathy determined by the accumulation of amyloid, which is represented by misfolded protein fragments in the cardiac extracellular space. The main classification of systemic amyloidosis is determined by the amyloid precursor proteins causing a very heterogeneous disease spectrum, but the main types of amyloidosis involving the heart are light chain (AL) and transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTR). AL, in which the amyloid precursor is represented by misfolded immunoglobulin light chains, can involve almost any system carrying the worst prognosis among amyloidosis patients. Read More

Electronic address:

More than a century ago, Broca (1861), Wernicke (1874) and Lichteim (1885) laid the foundations for the first anatomo-functional model of language, secondarily enriched by Geschwind (1967), leading to the Broca-Wernicke-Lichteim-Geschwind model. This model included the frontal, parietal, and temporal cortices as well as a subcortical structure, which could be the striatum, whose nature and role have remained unclear. Although the emergence of language deficits in patients with striatal injury has challenged the cortical language models developed over the past 30 years, the integration of the striatum into language processing models remains rare.
