The Future of IL-1 Targeting in Kidney Disease.

Drugs 2018 Jul;78(11):1073-1083

Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, Koc University School of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.

Interleukin (IL)-1α and IL-1β are proinflammatory cytokines that play a role in many diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and periodic inflammatory syndromes, including familial Mediterranean fever and Muckle-Wells syndrome. Drugs targeting IL-1 such as recombinant IL-1Ra (anakinra), neutralizing anti-IL-1β antibodies (canakinumab) and IL-1β traps (rilonacept) are in clinical use to treat these diseases. Additionally, experimental evidence suggests a role of IL-1 in kidney disease and hypertension and targeting IL-1 showed promising results in high cardiovascular risk patients, hemodialysis and renal transplantation patients.

Autoinflammatory diseases (AIDs) are a recently described group of conditions caused by mutations in multiple genes that code for proteins of the innate immune system. Cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS) are autoinflammatory diseases comprising three clinically overlapping disorders: familial cold urticarial syndrome (FCAS), Muckle-Wells syndrome (MWS), and neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID). CAPS have been associated with gain-of-function variations in NLRP3 (NOD-like receptor family, pyrin containing domain-3). Read More

Department of Pediatric Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, McGill University Health Center, Montreal Children's Hospital, 1001, boul. Décarie - Local A02.3017, Montreal, QC, H4A 3J1, Canada.

Background: Muckle-Wells syndrome (MWS) is a rare auto-inflammatory disease characterized by the presence of recurrent urticaria, deafness and amyloidosis. Progressive sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is reported to occur in up to 85% of patients occurring in the second and third decades and as early as the first decade in patients with a more severe phenotype, thus potentially having a significant impact on a child's development. IL-1 inhibitors, such as Anakinra, have been described to improve systemic inflammation, and stabilize or improve hearing status as well. Read More

Eosinophilic annular erythema (EAE) is a rare entity of unknown etiology that is possibly related to a hypersensitivity reaction and presents as annular erythematous plaques with tissue eosinophilia. It is classified as a figurate erythema with a controversial relationship to Wells syndrome (WS) in the literature, where it is generally considered a separate entity or subset based on clinical and histopathologic differences. EAE typically presents with recurrent, erythematous, arcuate, and annular plaques on the trunk and proximal extremities. Read More

[Cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes].

Rev Med Interne 2018 Apr 27;39(4):287-296. Epub 2017 Oct 27.

Cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS) are linked to one single gene mutations, however they are associated with 3 syndromes, which are, from the mildest to the most severe phenotype familial cold urticaria, Muckle-Wells syndrome and chronic, infantile, neurologic, cutaneous, articular (CINCA) syndrome also called neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID). Autosomic dominant inheritance is present in most cases but in CINCA/NOMID syndrome where neomutations are more common. Mutations in the gene encoding cryopyrin, NLRP3, are associated with deregulation of caspase-1 activity, excessive interleukin-1 production and an autoinflammatory syndrome, which in familial cold urticaria and Muckle-Wells syndrome may be triggered or worsened by exposure to coldness.

Wells' Syndrome Successfully Treated with Colchicine.

Case Rep Dermatol 2017 May-Aug;9(2):65-69. Epub 2017 Jul 13.

Pathology Department, Complejo Hospitalario Universitario de Pontevedra, EOXI Pontevedra-Salnés, Pontevedra, Spain.

Eosinophilic cellulitis is an uncommon, inflammatory and chronic disorder of unknown etiology. Corticosteroids are currently considered as the first-line treatment but they are not without significant disadvantages such as contraindications in steroid-resistant cases and patients with frequent recurrences. We report a patient suffering from Wells' syndrome with a 24-year history of symptomatic and generalized skin lesions. Read More

[Autoinflammatory diseases and kidney involvement].

Ter Arkh 2017;89(6):4-20

I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University, Ministry of Health of Russia, Moscow, Russia.

Autoinflammatory disease (AID) is a new concept formulated from the results of studying the pathogenesis of familial periodic fevers, a heterogeneous group of genetically determined diseases characterized by causelessly recurrent exacerbations of the inflammatory process due to genetically determined disorders of innate immunity and accompanied by uncontrolled hypersecretion of interleukin-1 (IL-1). These mechanisms were a basic model for understanding a wide range of rheumatologic and other inflammatory diseases of the internal organs. The late diagnosis of AIDs and their ineffective treatment increase the risk for the development and progression of secondary AA amyloidosis. Read More

Muckle-Wells syndrome in the setting of basal cell nevus syndrome.

Cutis 2017 Jun;99(6):421-424

Advanced Dermatology Associates, Allentown, USA.

Muckle-Wells syndrome (MWS) is a rare disorder inherited in an autosomal-dominant fashion that belongs to a group of hereditary periodic fever syndromes. It specifically belongs to the cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPSs) in which there is a mutation in the NLRP (NLR family pyrin domain containing 3) gene that leads to overproduction of IL-1β, the source of the multisystem inflammatory symptoms. Muckle-Wells syndrome is characterized by a recurrent urticarial eruption that is associated with episodic fever, myalgia, arthralgia, malaise, progressive sensorineural hearing loss, and amyloid nephropathy (the most severe complication).

Pharmacological treatment options for cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes.

Expert Rev Clin Pharmacol 2017 Aug 20;10(8):855-864. Epub 2017 Jun 20.

a Department of Rheumatology , University Hospital Basel , Basel , Switzerland.

Introduction: Cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS) are rare monogenic autoinflammatory diseases, comprising a spectrum of phenotypes of varying severity. CAPS are associated with gain-of-function mutations in the NLRP3 inflammasome, a multiprotein complex critical for the activation of IL-1ß, and are characterized by episodes of fever, urticaria-like rash, musculoskeletal, ocular, and neurological symptoms. Areas covered: Accounting for the pivotal role of IL-1ß in the pathogenesis of CAPS, three therapeutic options, all blocking the action of IL-1ß, are currently approved: anakinra, a recombinant IL-1 receptor antagonist, the IL-1 trap rilonacept and canakinumab, a monoclonal anti-IL-1ß antibody.

Periodic fever: From Still's disease to Muckle-Wells syndrome.

Reumatol Clin 2017 Jun 2. Epub 2017 Jun 2.

Servicio de Medicina Interna, Hospital Universitario de Cabueñes, Gijón, Asturias, España; Departamento de Medicina, Facultad de Medicina y Ciencias de la Salud, Universidad de Oviedo, Oviedo, Asturias, España.

Muckle-Wells syndrome is a systemic autoinflammatory disease included in the group of hereditary periodic febrile syndromes. We report the case of a patient with this rare disease to call the attention to the singularity of this condition, its low incidence, its atypical presentation and the subsequent delay in the diagnosis, which is reached when late and devastating consequences have taken place. In this case, the first-line therapy, anti-interleukin 1 (IL-1), failed to control the disease. Read More
