Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) antagonists have beenknown to trigger new-onset psoriasis in adult andpediatric patients. Here we report a case of TNFantagonist-induced psoriasis in a 3-year-old boytreated with infliximab for Kawasaki disease. Ourpatient is a 3-year-old boy with Kawasaki diseaseunresponsive to intravenous immunoglobulinwho was then treated with one dose of infliximab.A few days later he developed psoriatic plaqueson the face and extremities. The psoriatic plaqueswere treated with topical calcineurin inhibitors andtopical corticosteroids, with marked improvement...

The vertebrate gut symbiont Lactobacillus reuteri exhibits strain-specific adhesion and health-promoting properties. Here, we investigated the role of the mucus adhesins, CmbA and MUB, upon interaction of L. reuteri ATCC PTA 6475 and ATCC 53608 strains with human monocyte-derived dendritic cells (moDCs). We showed that mucus adhesins increased the capacity of L. reuteri strains to interact with moDCs and promoted phagocytosis. Our data also indicated that mucus adhesins mediate anti- and pro-inflammatory effects by the induction of interleukin-10 (IL-10), tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), IL-1β, IL-6, and IL-12 cytokines...

BACKGROUND: Kawasaki disease (KD) is a pediatric vasculitis of unknown origin. Its main complication is the development of coronary artery aneurysms (CAA) with giant CAA at the end of the spectrum. METHODS: In this cohort study, we evaluated the association between patient characteristics and the development of giant CAA based on z-scores. Multivariable, multinomial logistic regression analysis was used to identify variables associated with giant CAA. RESULTS: A total of 301 KD patients, comprising 216 patients without enlargement, 45 with small-sized, 19 with medium-sized, and 21 with giant CAA with all echocardiographies at our center were retrospectively included...

In France, sudden death is responsible every year for 40,000 deaths. The most frequent etiology is cardiac disease. Atheromatous-related pathology is the most common etiology beyond 35, but cardiomyopathies and channelopathies are responsible for a significant number of deaths in young adults. Some acquired disorders can also cause sudden cardiac death. We report the case of a 17-year-old man who died suddenly after sport. Autopsy and pathological study found multiple giant coronary aneurysms. Thrombosis and fibrous scar of myocardial ischemic events were observed...

We investigated how the diameter of coronary artery aneurysm (CAA) relates to the distribution immediately after Kawasaki disease (KD). Two hundred and four pts (155 males and 49 females) who had undergone selective coronary angiography (CAGs) less than 100 days after the onset of KD were studied. We measured the maximum diameter of each artery segment in the initial CAGs. We analyzed the relationship between the maximum diameters and the distribution of CAA. We divided the patients into four groups based on the maximum CAA diameter in each patient (large(L) ≥8 mm, medium(M) ≥6 and <8 mm, small(S) ≥4 and <6 mm, very small(VS) <4 mm) and counted the affected segments...

A 10-year-old girl was referred to our hospital with left preauricular adenopathy and gingival swelling. She was diagnosed with B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (BCP-ALL) based on being positive for expressions of CD10, CD19, TdT and HLA-DR. She showed no CD20 expression at the time of diagnosis. Based on the initial diagnosis of BCP-ALL, induction chemotherapy for BCP-ALL was initiated. However, the blasts did not disappear from her peripheral blood. Bone marrow examination on day 33 identified 81...

The distribution of metal and metalloid species in each of the cell compartments is termed as "metallome". It is important to elucidate the molecular mechanism underlying the beneficial or toxic effects exerted by a given metal or metalloid on human health. Therefore, we developed a method to measure intracellular metal ion concentration (particularly, intracellular calcium ion) in fission yeast. We evaluated the effects of nitric acid (HNO3), zymolyase, and westase treatment on cytolysis in fission yeast. Moreover, we evaluated the changes in the intracellular calcium ion concentration in fission yeast in response to treatment with/without micafungin...

We report the simultaneous use of cardiac re-synchronisation therapy and total cavopulmonary connection in a patient with dyssynchrony, wide QRS, and cardiac failure. To our knowledge, this simultaneous approach has not been reported previously. On follow-up, we noted that QRS width and brain natriuretic peptide levels improved. In addition, speckle tracking revealed improved synchronisation of ventricular wall motion.

Although Kawasaki disease is the main cause of acquired heart disease in children, no diagnostic biomarkers are available. We aimed to identify candidate biomarkers for diagnosing Kawasaki disease using serum exosomal microRNAs (miRNAs). Using frozen serum samples from a biobank, high-throughput microarray technologies, two-stage real-time quantitative PCR, and a self-referencing strategy for data normalization, we narrowed down the list of biomarker candidates to a set of 4 miRNAs. We further validated the diagnostic capabilities of the identified miRNAs (namely, CT(miR-1246)-CT(miR-4436b-5p) and CT(miR-197-3p)-CT(miR-671-5p)) in 79 samples from two hospitals...

Herein we describe the cases of two afebrile patients who were thought to have Kawasaki disease (KD). Patient 1 was a 7-month-old-Japanese girl. She presented with bulbar conjunctival injection, diarrhea, skin erythema, and redness around the bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) inoculation site. Thirteen days after the first symptoms, ultrasonic cardiogram (UCG) showed dilatations of the bilateral coronary arteries (CA). The dilatations had completely resolved 5 months later. Patient 2 was a 13-month-old Japanese boy...

OBJECTIVES: Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is an autoimmune disease characterised by skin and systemic fibrosis culminating in organ damage. Previous genetic studies including genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified 12 susceptibility loci satisfying genome-wide significance. Transethnic meta-analyses have successfully expanded the list of susceptibility genes and deepened biological insights for other autoimmune diseases. METHODS: We performed transethnic meta-analysis of GWAS in the Japanese and European populations, followed by a two-staged replication study comprising a total of 4436 cases and 14 751 controls...

Anomalous Hall effect, a manifestation of Hall effect occurring in systems without time-reversal symmetry, has been mostly observed in ferromagnetically ordered materials. However, its realization in high-mobility two-dimensional electron system remains elusive, as the incorporation of magnetic moments deteriorates the device performance compared to non-doped structure. Here we observe systematic emergence of anomalous Hall effect in various MgZnO/ZnO heterostructures that exhibit quantum Hall effect. At low temperatures, our nominally non-magnetic heterostructures display an anomalous Hall effect response similar to that of a clean ferromagnetic metal, while keeping a large anomalous Hall effect angle θAHE≈20°...

BACKGROUND: About 146,000 people were forced into long-term evacuation due to the nuclear power plant accident caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011. Disaster is known to induce hypertension in survivors for a certain period, but it is unclear whether prolonged disaster stress influences chronic kidney disease (CKD). We conducted an observational cohort study to elucidate the effects of evacuation stress on CKD incidence. METHODS: Participants were individuals living in communities near the Fukushima nuclear power plant, aged 40-74 years without CKD as of their 2011 general health checkup (non-evacuees: n = 9780, evacuees: n = 4712)...
