Primary Immunodeficiencies With Defects in Innate Immunity: Focus on Orofacial Manifestations.

Front Immunol 2020 18;11:1065. Epub 2020 Jun 18.

Université de Strasbourg, INSERM UMR_S 1109 "Molecular ImmunoRheumatology", Strasbourg, France.

The field of primary immunodeficiencies (PIDs) is rapidly evolving. Indeed, the number of described diseases is constantly increasing thanks to the rapid identification of novel genetic defects by next-generation sequencing. PIDs are now rather referred to as "inborn errors of immunity" due to the association between a wide range of immune dysregulation-related clinical features and the "prototypic" increased infection susceptibility.

Oral rehabilitation in a patient with Jeune syndrome presenting with multiple teeth agenesis.

Spec Care Dentist 2020 Jul 3. Epub 2020 Jul 3.

Department of Dental Materials and Prosthodontics, School of Dentistry of Ribeirão Preto, University of São Paulo (USP), Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brazil.

Jeune syndrome (JS) is a rare disease, with systemic manifestations, such as renal and hepatic insufficiency, retinal pigmentation, and respiratory insufficiency. Etiological factors have not been completely elucidated, but the molecular biology has contributed to the diagnosis and understanding of JS with DNA sequencing, showing the association among polymorphisms in different genes DYNC2H1 (MIM 603297) and TCTEX1D2 (MIM617353), which are the main genes associated with JS. There are a few reports on buccal findings in these patients; here, we present dental anomalies and clinical oral findings in a patient with JS, focusing on a multidisciplinary approach for rehabilitation.

Lupus Sci Med 2020 Jul;7(1)

Department of Clinical Immunology and Internal Medicine, National Reference Center for autoimmune diseases (RESO), Strasbourg University Hospital, Strasbourg, France.

Objective: Systemic lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease characterised by its phenotypic heterogeneity. Neutropaenia is a frequent event in SLE occurring in 20%-40% of patients depending on the threshold value of neutrophil count. On a daily basis, the management of neutropaenia in SLE is difficult with several possible causes. Read More

Serum long noncoding RNAs FAS-AS1 & PVT1 are novel biomarkers for systemic lupus erythematous.

Br J Biomed Sci 2020 Jul 2:1-5. Epub 2020 Jul 2.

Department of Medical Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Faculty of Medicine, Fayoum University Fayoum, Egypt.

Background: Systemic Lupus Erythematous (SLE) is a chronic systemic autoimmune disorder whose diagnosis depends on combination of multiple factors. Circulating lncRNAs could serve as diagnostic non-invasive biomarkers for SLE. We hypothesised that serum FAS-AS1 and PVT1 are new biomarkers for SLE that relate to clinical features and laboratory markers. Read More

Challenges of Oral Medicine Specialistsat the time ofCOVID-19 Pandemic.

Oral Dis 2020 Jul 2. Epub 2020 Jul 2.

Dipartimento di Scienze Biomediche, Chirurgiche ed Odontoiatriche, Milan, Italy.

The novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) had caused major disruptions in medical and dental care across the world, affecting secondary care services that had to rapidly adapt to new circumstances. Postponed and delayed oral medicine (OM) care, deferring non-urgent follow-ups in case of patients because of COVID-19 crisis, and limited access to health care, may have lead serious consequences fororal and systemic health (Arduino et al, 2020; Jones et al, 2020). Deferred diagnosis of a malignant conditionwhen suspected or even dysplasia in oralleucoplakia cases vastly implies the clinical outcome, influencing treatment and prognosis, subsequently(Meng et al, 2020).

Infectious Triggers in Periodontitis and the Gut in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA): A Complex Story About Association and Causality.

Front Immunol 2020 3;11:1108. Epub 2020 Jun 3.

Department for Rheumatology, Immunology and Allergology, Inselspital-University Hospital of Bern, Bern, Switzerland.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic immune mediated inflammatory disease of unknown origin, which is predominantly affecting the joints. Antibodies against citrullinated peptides are a rather specific immunological hallmark of this heterogeneous entity. Furthermore, certain sequences of the third hypervariable region of human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DR class II major histocompatibility (MHC) molecules, the so called "shared epitope" sequences, appear to promote autoantibody positive types of RA.

Unit of Dentistry, Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital, 00165 Rome, Italy.

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a heterogeneous group of diseases, whose classification is based on lineage-commitment and genetics. Although rare in childhood, it is the most common type of acute leukemia in adults, accounting for 80% of all cases in this age group. The prognosis of this disease remains poor (especially in childhood, as compared to acute lymphoblastic leukemia); however, overall survival has significantly improved over the past 30 years.

Medicines (Basel) 2020 Jun 16;7(6). Epub 2020 Jun 16.

Unit of Gastroenterology, Molinette Hospital, 10126 Turin, Italy.

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which includes Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), can be associated with several extra-intestinal manifestations requiring a multidisciplinary management both in terms of work-up and therapy. Oral lesions are common in patients with IBD, with a prevalence ranging from 5% to 50%. These can represent an oral location of IBD as well as a side-effect of drugs used to treat the intestinal disease. Read More

Gingival Hypertrophy in a Child with Hyaline Fibromatosis Syndrome.

Acta Stomatol Croat 2020 Mar;54(1):69-74

Department of Maxillofacial and Oral Surgery, University Hospital Dubrava, Zagreb.

Hyaline fibromatosis syndrome (HFS) is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder characterized by accumulation of hyalinized fibrous tissue with cutaneous, mucosal, osteoarticular, and systemic involvement. The condition is caused by a mutation of ANTXR2 gene that results in a faulty synthesis of a transmembrane protein which leads up to excessive deposition of hyaline material in extracellular space. The first signs may be present at birth or appear during infancy, and joint stiffness is the first, most common, symptom. Read More

Cardiovascular disease and antiphospholipid syndrome: how to predict and how to treat?

Pol Arch Intern Med 2020 Jun 3. Epub 2020 Jun 3.

The antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune systemic disease characterized by a hypercoagulable state secondary to the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) and associated to vascular thromboses and/or pregnancy complications. Although ≈60% of thrombotic manifestations is represented by venous thrombosis, also cardiovascular (CV) manifestations can occur in APS patients, comprising coronary and/or non-coronary complications. Moreover, several studies consistently showed a more significant atherosclerosis in APS patients than controls. Read More

While liquiritigenin, isolated from , is known to possess anti-inflammatory activities, it still remains to be known whether liquiritigenin has a suppressive effect on T cell activation and T cell-mediated disease. Here, we used Jurkat T cells to explore an underlying mechanism of pre-treatment with liquiritigenin in activated T cell in vitro and used atopic dermatitis (AD) in vivo to confirm it. We found liquiritigenin blocks IL-2 and CD69 expression from activated T cells by PMA/A23187 or anti-CD3/CD28 antibodies. Read More

Institute of Biomedicine, Faculty of Medicine, Central University of Venezuela, Caracas, Venezuela.

Introduction: Lupus erythematosus (LE) is an autoimmune disease often treated with antimalarial drugs. The prolonged use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine can cause hyperpigmentation in the skin, oral mucosa and retinal pigment epithelium, which in turn can trigger toxicity in this epithelium, which in some cases causes vision loss. The objective of the present work was to establish the association between the presence of oral pigmented macules by antimalarial and secondary retinal toxicity. Read More
