Elevated Myeloperoxidase-DNA Complex Levels in Sera of Patients with IgA Vasculitis.

Pathobiology 2021 Nov 23:1-6. Epub 2021 Nov 23.

Department of Dermatology, St. Marianna University School of Medicine, Kawasaki, Japan.

Introduction: IgA vasculitis is a systemic disease that results from the entrapment of circulating IgA-containing immune complexes in small-vessel walls in the skin, kidneys, and gastrointestinal tract. An excessive formation of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) is involved in the pathogenesis of vasculitis, especially in antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis. This study aimed to clarify whether NETs are implicated in IgA vasculitis. Read More

Neutrophil extracellular traps in patients with liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.

Sci Rep 2021 09 9;11(1):18025. Epub 2021 Sep 9.

Department of Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, Huddinge, Stockholm, Sweden.

Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are web-like structures consisting of DNA, histones and granule proteins, released from neutrophils in thrombus formation, inflammation, and cancer. We asked if plasma levels of the NET markers myeloperoxidase (MPO)-DNA and citrullinated histone H3 (H3Cit)-DNA, are elevated in liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and if the levels correlate with clinical parameters. MPO-DNA, H3Cit-DNA, and thrombin-antithrombin (TAT) complex, as a marker of coagulation activity, were measured using ELISA in plasma from 82 patients with HCC, 95 patients with cirrhosis and 50 healthy controls.

Neutrophil extracellular traps exacerbate coagulation and endothelial damage in patients with essential hypertension and hyperhomocysteinemia.

Thromb Res 2021 01 1;197:36-43. Epub 2020 Nov 1.

Department of Cardiology, First Affiliated Hospital of Harbin Medical University, Harbin, 150001, Heilongjiang Province, China. Electronic address:

Patients with essential hypertension (EH) and hyperhomocysteinemia (HHCY) suffer from more increased thrombotic events than those in EH alone. However, the underlying mechanisms for this effect are not well understood. This study hypothesized that neutrophil extracellular trap (NET) releasing may be triggered by HHCY in patients in EH, thereby predisposing them to a more hypercoagulable state. Read More

Ticagrelor Exerts Immune-Modulatory Effect by Attenuating Neutrophil Extracellular Traps.

Int J Mol Sci 2020 May 21;21(10). Epub 2020 May 21.

Laboratory of Molecular Hematology, Department of Medicine, Democritus University of Thrace, 68100 Alexandroupolis, Greece.

Neutrophils through the release of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) containing active tissue factor (TF) are key components of thrombo-inflammation. Platelets-neutrophils interplay in ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) promotes NET formation via inorganic polyphosphates (polyP) released by thrombin-activated platelets. NETs, however, are also induced by biomaterials in a platelet-independent manner. Read More

Complement Activation in Association with Markers of Neutrophil Extracellular Traps and Acute Myocardial Infarction in Stable Coronary Artery Disease.

Mediators Inflamm 2020 26;2020:5080743. Epub 2020 Mar 26.

Center for Clinical Heart Research, Department of Cardiology, Oslo University Hospital Ullevål, Norway.

Complement activation and neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) have both been suggested to drive atherosclerotic plaque progression. Although experimental studies suggest interplay between these two innate immunity components, the relevance in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) is unclear. The aim of this study was to assess associations between complement activation and NETs in patients with stable CAD and examine the role of complement activation on clinical outcome. Read More

Neutrophil Extracellular Traps Effectively Control Acute Chikungunya Virus Infection.

Front Immunol 2019 31;10:3108. Epub 2020 Jan 31.

Department of Pharmacology, School of Medicine of Ribeirao Preto, University of São Paulo, Ribeirao Preto, Brazil.

The Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is a re-emerging arbovirus, in which its infection causes a febrile illness also commonly associated with severe joint pain and myalgia. Although the immune response to CHIKV has been studied, a better understanding of the virus-host interaction mechanisms may lead to more effective therapeutic interventions. In this context, neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) have been described as a key mediator involved in the control of many pathogens, including several bacteria and viruses, but no reports of this important protective mechanism were documented during CHIKV infection.

Neutrophil Extracellular Traps.

Balázs Rada

Methods Mol Biol 2019 ;1982:517-528

College of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Infectious Diseases, University of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA.

Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are made of a network of extracellular strings of DNA that bind pathogenic microbes. Histones and several neutrophil granule proteins associated with the DNA framework damage entrapped microorganisms. Reactive oxygen species generated by the neutrophil NADPH oxidase have been shown to be essential to mediate NET release by several stimuli including numerous pathogenic bacteria. Read More

Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are increased in the alveolar spaces of patients with ventilator-associated pneumonia.

Crit Care 2018 12 27;22(1):358. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

Division of Rheumatology, Department of Medicine, University of Washington, 750 Republican Street, Rm. E563, Box 358060, Seattle, WA, 98109, USA.

Background: Neutrophils release neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) in response to invading pathogens. Although NETs play an important role in host defense against microbial pathogens, they have also been shown to play a contributing mechanistic role in pathologic inflammation in the absence of infection. Although a role for NETs in bacterial pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is emerging, a comprehensive evaluation of NETs in the alveolar space of critically ill patients has yet to be reported.

Elevated Plasma Levels of Cell-Free DNA During Liver Transplantation Are Associated With Activation of Coagulation.

Liver Transpl 2018 12;24(12):1716-1725

Surgical Research Laboratory, University of Groningen, Groningen, the Netherlands.

Patients undergoing liver transplantation have complex changes in their hemostatic system, and the net effect of these changes appears to be a "rebalanced" hemostatic profile. Recently, a process called NETosis in which a neutrophil expels DNA and proteins that form a weblike structure, has been described as a mechanism of pathogen entrapment. Increasing evidence suggests a pivotal role for neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) and their main component, cell-free DNA (cfDNA), in activation of coagulation. Read More

IL-33 exacerbates liver sterile inflammation by amplifying neutrophil extracellular trap formation.

J Hepatol 2017 Sep 21. Epub 2017 Sep 21.

Department of Surgery, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, United States; Department of Surgery, Union Hospital, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, PR China. Electronic address:

Background & Aims: Neutrophils and liver sinusoidal endothelial cells (LSECs) both contribute to sterile inflammatory injury during ischemia/reperfusion (I/R), a well-known liver surgical stress. Interleukin-33 (IL-33) has been shown to drive neutrophil infiltration during inflammatory responses through its receptor ST2. We recently reported that infiltrating neutrophils form neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs), which exacerbate sterile inflammatory injury in liver I/R. Read More

Circulating Neutrophil Extracellular Trap Levels in Well-Controlled Type 2 Diabetes and Pathway Involved in Their Formation Induced by High-Dose Glucose.

Pathobiology 2016 18;83(5):243-51. Epub 2016 May 18.

Division of Rheumatology, Endocrinology and Nephrology, Hokkaido University Graduate School of Medicine, Sapporo, Japan.

Objectives: Although intensive therapy for type 2 diabetes (T2D) prevents microvascular complications, 10% of well-controlled T2D patients develop microangiopathy. Therefore, the identification of risk markers for microvascular complications in well-controlled T2D patients is important. Recent studies have demonstrated that high-dose glucose induces neutrophil extracellular trap (NET) formation, which can be a risk for microvascular disorders. Read More
