BACKGROUND: IgE autoantibodies are considered to be involved in pathogenesis of bullous pemphigoid (BP), particularly inflammatory and erythematous phenotypes. OBJECTIVE: To develop reliable ELISAs for detection of IgE autoantibodies to both BP180 and BP230 in BP sera, and to compare the ELISA results with clinical features. METHODS: We used commercially available IgG ELISAs to develop IgE ELISAs for both BP180 and BP230. To determine the influence of excess amount of IgG autoantibodies, all normal and BP sera were tested before and after IgG adsorption...

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is an autoimmune blistering skin disorder characterized by circulating serum IgG antibodies against two hemidesmosomal proteins: BP180 and BP230. Fundamentally, immunosuppressive therapies are administered to treat this disease, but plasmapheresis can be added for refractory patients. We experienced the case of a 63-year-old patient with refractory BP for which we administered double filtration plasmapheresis (DFPP). His skin lesions improved along with decreased IgG BP180 antibodies, but factor XIII (FXIII) and fibrinogen were also reduced by DFPP repetition...

In order to evaluate the serum anti-skin autoantibodies and cytokine concentrations in patients with different epidermolysis bullosa (EB) types and severity, 42 EB patients and 38 controls were enrolled. Serum anti-skin antibodies were significantly higher in the patients than in the controls (p = 0.008, p < 0.001, p < 0.001, p < 0.001 and p < 0.001 for desmoglein 1 (DSG1) desmoglein 3 (DSG3), bullous pemphigoid 180 (BP180), BP230 and type VII collagen (COL7), respectively). The same trend was observed for interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-2, IL-6, IL-10, tumor necrosis factor-β, and interferon-γ (p < 0...

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is a subepidermal blistering skin disease, which has shown a strong association with neurological diseases in epidemiological studies. The BP autoantigens BP180 and BP230 are expressed in the cutaneous basement membrane and the central nervous system. Using BP180 and BP230 ELISA assays and immunoblotting against BP180 we analyzed the IgG reactivity in the sera of 115 patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and 40 neurologically healthy controls. BP180 autoantibodies were found in 18 % of AD patients, whereas only 3% of controls had positive results (P=0...

Topical steroids are effective in treating bullous pemphigoid (BP). Autoantibodies against BP180 are related to disease activity, but correlation of these autoantibodies with response to topical steroid therapy has not yet been clearly evaluated. We investigate the usefulness of close and early monitoring of autoantibodies against BP180 and BP230 for assessment of response to therapy and early detection of therapeutic failure in BP patients treated topically. In eight BP patients under treatment with topical or systemic steroid therapy we retrospectively evaluated clinical course and autoantibodies against BP180 and BP230 as well as indirect immunofluorescence titres (IIF)...

BACKGROUND: Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is an autoimmune blistering disease that is characterized by formation of subepidermal bullae due to functional disturbance of the hemidesmosomal proteins on the keratinocytes at the basal membrane zone. In recent years, several studies have emphasized the important role of IgE autoantibodies in the pathogenesis of BP. Consequently, a therapeutic approach using IgE depleting antibodies, such as a humanized monoclonal anti-IgE antibody (e.g. omalizumab) may represent a new option for treatment of this autoimmune disease...

INTRODUCTION: Itching nodules and papules are common findings. A rare but important differential diagnosis is the nodular subtype of bullous pemphigoid. METHODS AND RESULTS: The investigators report a female patient presenting with strongly itching papules disseminated over her extremities and trunk. Physical examination revealed multiple erythematous, mostly excoriated papules and nodules on her back, abdomen, and extremities. Histology showed changes compatible with prurigo lesion, and immunofluorescence showed positive results for BP180 and BP230...

OBJECTIVES: To confirm that sera from some BP patients reactive exclusively to the BP230 and to study the clinical and immunological characteristics of this condition. MATERIALS AND METHODS: BP patients were divided into three groups: BP reactive only to BP230 (BP230-BP), BP reactive to both BP180 and BP230 (BP180-BP230-BP) and BP reactive only to BP180 (BP180-BP), based on the results of standard ELISAs for BP180 and BP230. Clinical features were statistically analyzed among the three groups...

REVIEW
Cathy Y Zhao, Dedee F Murrell
Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is the commonest subtype of autoimmune blistering disease in most countries of the world. It occurs most frequently in elderly patients and is characterised clinically by large, tense blisters in the skin preceded by urticarial plaques and pruritus. Immunopathologically, it is characterised by autoantibodies directed against the 180 kD antigen (BP180) and the 230 kD antigen (BP230). New knowledge regarding BP is being continually uncovered. This article reviews the recent advances in BP, including newer diagnostic tests, standardised outcome measures and emerging therapeutic options, as well as the evidence supporting their use...

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is a common autoimmune blistering disorder of the elderly. Several diagnostic modalities are available, including clinical impression, histopathology, direct and indirect immunofluorescence, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) detection of pathogenic antibodies. In this study, we aim to examine the utility of the newest test, ELISA, in comparison to the constellation of other tests. We describe our clinical experience in which 170 patients diagnosed with bullous pemphigoid had multiple tests performed...

BACKGROUND: Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is an acquired subepidermal autoimmune blistering disease in which there are humoral and cellular responses against the BP180 and BP230 antigens. Dipeptidyl peptidase (DPP)-4 inhibitors enhance endogenous glucagon peptide-1 and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide secretion with food intake, which leads to insulin secretion, as well as to the reduction of glucagon secretion. Recently, several cases of DPP-4 inhibitor-associated BP have been reported...

Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) comprises a collection of clinically diverse inherited blistering diseases that affect the skin and, in some subtypes, mucous membranes and other organs. Currently classified into four main subtypes (EB simplex, junctional EB, dystrophic EB, and Kindler syndrome, mainly based on the level of skin cleavage), the spectrum of EB extends to more than 30 clinical subtypes with pathogenic mutations in at least 18 distinct genes. This review focuses on three recent additions to variants of EB: all are autosomal recessive, and result from mutations in either DST-e (coding for epidermal dystonin, also known as the 230 kDa bullous pemphigoid antigen, BP230), EXPH5 (coding for exophilin-5, also known as Slac2-b), or ITGA3 (coding for the integrin alpha-3 subunit)...

Direct diagnosis of mucous membrane pemphigoid (MMP) is not easy. Circulating autoantibodies targeting bullous pemphigoid antigens of 180 kDa and 230 kDa (BP180 and BP230), α6β4 integrin, laminin 332 and type VII collagen (Col VII) are not always present. The aims of this study were to characterize the humoral immune response of a cohort of Italian patients with MMP, its association with clinical involvement and severity, and to design an algorithm for efficient serological diagnosis. Seventy-eight MMP sera were studied retrospectively by indirect immunofluorescence on salt-split skin, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and immunoblotting...

Autoimmune bullous diseases (AIBDs) are characterized by autoantibodies against structural proteins of the dermal-epidermal junction (in pemphigoid diseases) and the epidermal/ epithelial desmosomes (in pemphigus diseases). By far, the most common AIBD is bullous pemphigoid, which is immunopathologically characterized by autoantibodies against BP180 (type XVII collagen) and BP230. IgG and, to a lesser extent, IgA autoantibodies are the major autoantibody isotypes in these disorders. IgE autoantibodies are increasingly reported in particular in bullous pemphigoid...

A 61-year-old Japanese man developed bullous skin lesions during topical therapy for psoriasis vulgaris. Physical examination demonstrated numerous tense bullae and scaly erythemas on the trunk and extremities. Histopathology of the skin biopsy demonstrated subepidermal bullae and lymphocytic infiltration with eosinophils in the dermis. Direct immunofluorescence revealed linear deposits of immunoglobulin (Ig)G, IgA and C3 along the basement membrane zone. Indirect immunofluorescence of 1 mol/L NaCl-split skin showed IgG reactivity with both epidermal and the dermal sides...

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is an autoimmune blistering skin disease associated with autoantibodies against two hemidesmosomal proteins, BP180 (type XVII collagen) and BP230. As the pathogenic relevance of antibodies against the immunodominant NC16A domain of BP180 has been clearly demonstrated, specific removal of these antibodies should be a rational therapeutic approach. Here, we evaluated three recombinant forms of bacterially produced BP180 NC16A, a monomer, trimer, and tetramer, together with different matrices for their efficacy to specifically adsorb autoantibodies from BP plasma samples...

Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a rare disorder characterized by inherited skin adhesion defects with abnormal disruption of the epidermal-dermal junction in response to mechanical trauma. Our aim was to investigate a set of cytokine levels in serum samples from patients suffering from epidermolysis bullosa simplex (EBS), dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (DEB), and healthy controls (HCs), exploring their potential correlations with antiskin autoantibody titers and disease activity. Forty patients afferent to the Dermatological Ward of Bari City Hospital and 9 HCs were enrolled and subdivided according to the dystrophic (DEB) and simplex forms (EBS)...
