Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by the production of multiple autoantibodies. Antibodies against Ficolin-3 were previously identified in the sera of some SLE patients, but their prevalence and significance have not been yet investigated. The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence of anti-ficolin-3 antibodies among SLE patients and to investigate their potential as diagnostic and/or prognostic biomarkers in SLE. In this retrospective study, sera from SLE patients (n = 165) were selected from a preexisting declared biological collection...

Hepatitis E virus infection - mainly genotype 3 - is increasingly common in industrialized countries. Infection is usually asymptomatic, but cases of central or peripheral neurological symptoms with hepatitis E have been described. The most frequent is Guillain-Barre but somes cases of neuralgic amyotrophy have been described. In our center, since 2010, we have identified five cases of neuralgic amyotrophy associated with acute hepatitis E in immunocompetent patients. For all these patients, neuralgic amyotrophy was diagnosed with electromyogram and positive IgM for hepatitis E, and detectable HEV RNA in 4 of the cases...

BACKGROUND: Transverse myelitis is a rare complication of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). This retrospective multicentre study identifies the prognostic factors in a relatively large patient series. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty patients fulfilled the SLE criteria of the ACR classification and the Transverse Myelitis Consortium Working Group. A severe neurological flare was defined as muscle strength grade <3/5 in more than half the muscle groups at the motor neurological level...

IMPORTANCE: High-dose immunosuppressive therapy and autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) have shown efficacy in systemic sclerosis in phase 1 and small phase 2 trials. OBJECTIVE: To compare efficacy and safety of HSCT vs 12 successive monthly intravenous pulses of cyclophosphamide. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: The Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation International Scleroderma (ASTIS) trial, a phase 3, multicenter, randomized (1:1), open-label, parallel-group, clinical trial conducted in 10 countries at 29 centers with access to a European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation-registered transplant facility...

CONTEXT: Cyclophosphamide is used for renal and major extrarenal involvement in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and is associated with a risk of premature ovarian failure. There are no data available about the relation between anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) serum levels and the probability of subsequent pregnancy in SLE patients. OBJECTIVE: We analyzed AMH levels and the probability of pregnancy in SLE women exposed to cyclophosphamide. DESIGN AND SETTING: We conducted a matched cohort study in referral centers for SLE...

The aims of this present study were to: 1) assess the characteristics of hematological malignancies in polymyositis/polymyositis (PM/DM) patients; and 2) determine predictive variables of hematological malignancies in PM/DM patients. We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 32 patients (14 PM, 18 DM) associated with hematological malignancies. In our 32 PM/DM patients, hematological malignancy was concurrently identified (18.8%) or occurred during the course of PM/DM (31.2%); although, PM/DM more often preceded hematological malignancy onset (50%)...

To describe the main characteristics and treatment of autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AHA) in patients with common variable immunodeficiency (CVID), we analyzed data from 18 patients, 4 from an earlier study and 14 from the French DEF-I cohort on adult patients with primary hypogammaglobulinemia. To be included, patients had to have CVID and a previous history of AHA with a hemoglobin level < or =90 g/L at onset. To determine whether AHA is associated with a particular clinical phenotype of CVID, we conducted a case-control study from the DEF-I cohort...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinicobiologic presentation in patients with primary Sjögren's syndrome (SS)-related peripheral neuropathy, the histologic results of neuromuscular biopsy (NMB), and clinical outcome, and to identify prognostic factors. METHODS: We retrospectively studied clinical and biologic presentation of 40 patients with primary SS-related neuropathy who underwent NMB. Prognostic factors of clinical outcome were assessed by univariate and multivariate analysis...

OBJECTIVE: To describe characteristics and outcomes of vasculitides associated with malignancies. METHODS: The requirement for inclusion in this retrospective, 10-year study was development of vasculitis in patients with a progressing malignancy. Malignancies secondary to immunosuppressants used to treat vasculitis were excluded. The main characteristics of vasculitides were analyzed and compared according to the type of malignancy. RESULTS: Sixty patients were included (male/female sex ratio 2...

Accurate and sensitive measurement techniques are a key issue in the quantification of the microvascular and endothelial dysfunction in systemic sclerosis (SSc). Thermal hyperemia comprises two separate mechanisms: an initial peak that is axon reflex mediated; and a sustained plateau phase that is nitric oxide dependent. The main objective of our study was to test whether thermal hyperemia in patients with SSc differed from that in patients with primary Raynaud's phenomenon (RP) and healthy controls. In a first study, we enrolled 20 patients suffering from SSc, 20 patients with primary RP and 20 healthy volunteers...

Systemic mastocytosis (SM) refers to a group of heterogeneous diseases that can be divided into indolent SM, for which prognosis is favorable, and malignant SM, which has a poor prognosis. While the diagnosis of SM is often a challenge since clinical and biological abnormalities are not specific, prognosis is even more difficult to predict. Thus, we aimed to highlight predictable factors in a cohort of 28 cases of SM. Among the 13 women and 15 men studied were 7 patients who had an aggressive form of SM that ultimately led to death in 3 of them...

INTRODUCTION: Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant inherited phakomatosis, usually diagnosed in childhood and characterized by cutaneous and neurological tumors, the latter often leading to epilepsy and mental retardation. EXEGESIS: We report a case of TSC diagnosed in a 33-year-old man, without any known family history of phakomatosis, presenting with facial angiofibromas, hypomelanotic macules, a giant-cell astrocytoma and retinal phakomas without any mental impairment or epilepsy...

THE PATHOPHYSIOLOGY of most autoimmune diseases is often poorly understood. EXPERIMENTAL CONSIDERATIONS and clinical experience suggest that high doses immunoablation followed by stem cell transplantation is a therapeutic option to consider for certain severe autoimmune disorders. THE CONCEPT OF RESTORING NORMAL IMMUNE REACTIVITY must in part br true since current results of 466 transplants (445 autologous, 21 allogeneic) patients suffering from various autoimmune diseases show a beneficial outcome in approximately 2/3 of the patients...

The objective of the present work was to set up a routine test adapted to screening for antiendothelial cell antibodies (AECAs) in serum samples with minimal interference from antinuclear antibodies (ANAs) or rheumatoid factors (RFs). We compared the titers of AECAs titrated following two enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs): (i) an ELISA with ethanol-fixed EA.hy926 monolayers as the antigenic substrate and (ii) an ELISA with nucleus-depleted lysates prepared from EA.hy926 cells and normalized for protein (1...

Hyper-IgM syndrome (HIGM) is a heterogeneous condition characterized by impaired Ig class-switch recombination (CSR). The molecular defects that have so far been associated with this syndrome - which affect the CD40 ligand in HIGM type 1 (HIGM1), CD40 in HIGM3, and activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID) in HIGM2 - do not account for all cases. We investigated the clinical and immunological characteristics of 15 patients with an unidentified form of HIGM. Although the clinical manifestations were similar to those observed in HIGM2, these patients exhibited a slightly milder HIGM syndrome with residual IgG production...

New information about calcium status in human scalp hair shaft, deduced from X-ray micro-fluorescence imaging, including its distribution over the hair section, the existence of one or several binding-types and its variation between people, is presented. The existence of two different calcium types is inferred. The first one corresponds to atoms (or ions) easily removable by hydrochloric acid, located in the cortex (granules), in the cuticle zone and also in the core of the medulla, which can reasonably be identified as calcium soaps...
