BACKGROUND: Most cases of chronic urticaria (CU) are idiopathic. Circumstantial evidence suggests that some CU cases have an autoimmune pathogenesis. Previous research indicates that a substantial percentage of patients with CU have an atopic background. OBJECTIVES: This study aims to examine the association between CU, and atopic and autoimmune diseases. METHODS: This population-based retrospective cohort study identified 9,332 patients with CU and 37,328 controls matched for age, sex, and number of dermatological clinic visits from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database for 2004-2009...

OBJECTIVES: Recently, mean platelet volume-to-lymphocyte ratio has emerged as a novel parameter of inflammation. No study has investigated the role of mean platelet volume-to-lymphocyte ratio in children with Kawasaki disease. We aimed to evaluate the relationship between mean platelet volume-to-lymphocyte ratio and coronary artery abnormalities in Kawasaki disease. METHODS: Between January 2008 and January 2017, a total of 58 children with Kawasaki disease and 42 healthy subjects matched for sex and age were enrolled...

In some patients with Kawasaki disease, a prior myocardial infarction causes ventricular tachycardia in the chronic post-myocardial infarction phase. We report the case of a 41-year-old man with symptomatic and haemodynamically unstable ventricular tachycardia in whom substrate ablation was performed for the ventricular tachycardia before insertion of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator.

BACKGROUND: IL-10, as a proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokine, has been thought to have an important role in the development of Kawasaki disease. Variation in the IL-10 gene might lead to altered protein production, which may result in Kawasaki disease. Several studies have been performed to investigate the IL-10 -592 A/C polymorphism and Kawasaki disease risk. Unfortunately, the results of previous studies were inconsistent. Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis to derive a more precise estimation of the association between the IL-10 -592 A/C polymorphism and Kawasaki disease risk...

OBJECTIVES: To describe the cardiac manifestations in the acute phase of patients with Kawasaki disease treated in a third level Children's hospital in Mexico City, Mexico. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted in patients with a diagnosis of Kawasaki disease treated in this hospital from August 1995 to December 2016. Information included patient demographics, clinical features, treatment used, electrocardiographic findings, extra-coronary echocardiographic findings, and the development of coronary artery aneurysms in the acute phase of the disease...

Background: Decreased left atrial (LA) reservoir function is reported to be associated with elevated left ventricular (LV) end diastolic pressure and LV diastolic dysfunction. Echocardiographic parameters that reflect LA reservoir function include LA total emptying fraction [(maximum LA volume - minimum LA volume) / maximum LA volume], peak LA longitudinal strain (PLALS) at systole, and LA stiffness index (E/E´/PLALS). We aimed to investigate the long-term outcomes of LV diastolic function in children with a history of Kawasaki disease (KD) (KDHx group) by assessing LA reservoir function...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: We defined laboratory marker profiles typical of incomplete Kawasaki disease (iKD) during illness, especially with respect to the presence of a coronary artery abnormality such as coronary artery dilation or aneurysm. METHODS: This retrospective study examined the clinical and laboratory markers of patients with iKD over time, along with those of patients with complete KD (cKD) and febrile controls. RESULTS: Of 795 patients, 178 had iKD, 504 had cKD and 113 were febrile controls...

To investigate the clinical significance of serum soluble tumor necrosis factor receptor (sTNFR) II level and sTNFR II/I ratio as indicators of the development of coronary artery lesions (CALs) in Kawasaki disease (KD), we measured levels of serum sTNFR I and II, interleukin (IL)-6, IL-18, and neopterin in 63 patients with KD, including nine patients with CALs and 20 healthy controls. At the time of diagnosis of KD before intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) treatment, serum sTNFR I and II levels were found to be significantly higher in non-responders to IVIG treatment than in responders...

BACKGROUND: In clinical trials of Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccines (PCV), some adverse events have been reported more frequently in the PCV vaccinated. Ten-valent PCV (PCV10) was introduced into the Finnish National Vaccination Programme (NVP) in September 2010. OBJECTIVES: We conducted an ecologic register-based study to investigate further the reported adverse events after PCV. METHODS: This study included data obtained from the Finnish nationwide, population-based registers...

BACKGROUND: Infliximab, a monoclonal antibody directed against tumor necrosis factor-α, is being evaluated as adjunctive therapy to intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) for treatment of young children with acute Kawasaki disease (KD). OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to develop a population pharmacokinetic (PopPK) model for infliximab in children with KD, and to evaluate the impact of covariates on infliximab disposition. Specifically, we wanted to investigate the effect of body weight and IVIG administration on PK parameters...

PURPOSE: To identify patterns summarizing the retinal vascular network in the elderly and to investigate the relationship of these vascular patterns with cardiovascular history. METHODS: We conducted a population-based study, the Montrachet study (Maculopathy Optic Nerve nuTRition neurovAsCular and HEarT diseases), in participants older than 75 years. The history of cardiovascular disease and a score-based estimation of their 10-year risk of cardiovascular mortality (Heart SCORE) were collected...

BACKGROUND: To study the protein profile of the serum exosomes of patients with coronary artery aneurysms (CAA) caused by Kawasaki disease (KD). METHODS: Two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE) was used to identify proteins from the exosomes of serum obtained from children with CAA caused by KD, as well as healthy controls. Differentially expressed proteins were identified using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight/time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF/TOF MS) analysis...

Early intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is the standard treatment for Kawasaki disease (KD) to reduce the incidence of coronary aneurysms. Patients with atypical presentation or who live in a rural area are less likely to receive treatment in the early stage of presentation and are more likely to develop severe complications. There is little consensus on how to treat coronary aneurysms effectively in the acute or subacute stage especially when giant aneurysms develop that compromise cardiac function. This case study is of a 19-month-old girl who initially was not treated as KD and developed multivessel giant coronary artery aneurysms (CAAs) (>8 mm), acute myocardial infarction, and complete heart block despite late intravenous IVIG administration...
