Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune inflammatory disease and currently has no effective therapy. The genome-wide analyses indicate that interleukin-1 receptor associated kinase 1 (IRAK1) is associated with the susceptibility of SLE in humans. In the present study, we identified that IRAK1 was overexpressed and hyper-activated in splenic mononuclear cells from B6.MRL-Fas(lpr)/Nju (B6.lpr) mice and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from SLE patients. Intraperitoneal treatment with a small molecular inhibitor of IRAK1 (IRAK1/4 inhibitor or IRAK-Inh) significantly mitigated inflammatory responses and renal injury in B6...

To estimate the prevalence and features of metabolic syndrome (MetS) in childhood-onset systemic lupus erythematosus (cSLE), we performed a cross-sectional study of 76 consecutive cSLE patients and 54 healthy controls, age and sex matched. All individuals were assessed for anthropometric and MetS features according to World Health Organization (WHO), NCEP Adult Treatment Panel III (NCEP-ATP III), and International Diabetes Federation (IDF) criteria. The cSLE patients were further assessed for clinical and laboratory manifestations, disease activity (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index), cumulative damage (Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics (SLICC)), and current and cumulative drug exposures...

Despite increasing evidence that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) widely take part in human diseases, the role of lncRNAs in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is largely unknown. In this study, we performed a two-stage study to explore the plasma levels of five lncRNAs (GAS5, linc0949, linc0597, HOTAIRM1 and lnc-DC) and their potential as SLE biomarkers. Compared with healthy controls, plasma levels of GAS5 and lnc-DC were significantly decreased (P < 0.001 and P = 0.002, respectively) while linc0597 were overexpressed in SLE patients (P < 0...

Background Cathelicidin (LL-37), an endogenous antimicrobial peptide, has recently been involved in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases. To assess whether LL-37 reflects disease activity, we measured serum levels of it in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients with active and inactive disease compared to healthy controls. LL-37 was also compared between new and old cases. Moreover, the correlation of LL-37 and pro-oxidant, antioxidant balance (PAB) was measured. Methods The study population consisted of 50 SLE patients and 28 healthy controls...

OBJECTIVES: Behçet's disease (BD) is a variable vessel vasculitis. The most widely used classification criteria for adults is the International Behçet's Study Group (ISG) criteria. Recently, the paediatric BD (PEDBD) classification criteria has been developed for children. For disease activity, there are mainly two severity scores; the Iranian BD dynamic activity measure (IBDDAM) and BD current activity form (BDCAF). We tested the performances of PEDBD and ISG criteria and the correlation between severity scores and physician global assessment (PGA) in children with BD...

IgA anti-β2glycoprotein I antibodies (IgA-anti-β2GPI) seems to be the most prevalent isotype in patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) with a significant association to thrombotic events. Both SLE and antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) can be associated with implantation failure, fetal loss and obstetric complications. Recent reports highlight the clinical value of IgA-anti-β2GPI determination in supporting in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment and IVF pregnancy outcomes. We report a 36-year-old female diagnosed with SLE, endometriosis and unexplained infertility...

BACKGROUND: BK virus (BKV) is a ubiquitous polyoma virus that lies dormant in the genitourinary tract once acquired in early childhood. In states of cellular immunodeficiency, the virus can reactivate to cause hemorrhagic cystitis and nephritis. Children with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) have an increased risk of developing infectious complications secondary to their immunocompromised state from the administration of several immuno-modulatory drugs. Currently, there are no data regarding the prevalence of BK viruria or viremia in children with SLE...
