TREM pain

Chao Du, Lijun Peng, Guanjun Kou, Peng Wang, Lin Lu, Yanqing Li
BACKGROUND: Irritable bowel disease (IBS) is viewed upon as a functional disorder of subclinical inflammatory changes in recent years, and there is no reliable biomarker. Triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells 1 (TREM-1), also produced in a soluble form (sTREM-1), is involved in the activation of inflammatory cascades of intracellular events and may play a role in pathogenesis of IBS. AIM: To investigate whether serum sTREM-1 level can be used as a marker of subclinical inflammation in D-IBS...

PURPOSE: To examine the static standing balance of individuals with chronic low back pain when compared to a healthy control group. METHODS: A search of available literature was done using PubMed, SPORTDiscus, CINAHL, and Scopus databases. Studies were included if they contained the following: (1) individuals with chronic low back pain 3 months or longer; (2) healthy control group; (3) quantified pain measurement; and (4) center of pressure measurement using a force plate...

Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a common adverse side effect of many antineoplastic agents. Patients treated with chemotherapy often report pain and paresthesias in a "glove-and-stocking" distribution. Diverse mechanisms contribute to the development and maintenance of CIPN. However, the role of spinal microglia in CIPN is not completely understood. In this study, cisplatin-treated mice displayed persistent mechanical allodynia, sensory deficits and decreased density of intraepidermal nerve fibers (IENFs)...

Rotator cuff injury (RCI) is a major musculoskeletal disorder in the adult population where inflammation and pain are major contributing factors. Coincidence of other clinical conditions like glenohumeral arthritis aggravates inflammation and delays the healing response. The mechanism and signaling factors underlying the sustenance of inflammation in the rotator cuff joint are largely unknown. The present article aims to elucidate the involvement of inflammatory molecule, TREM-1 (Triggering Receptors Expressed on Myeloid cells-1), and danger-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs), including high mobility group protein 1 (HMGB-1) and RAGE (receptor for advanced glycation end products), in the setting of RCI with respect to the severity of glenohumeral arthritis...

OBJECTIVE: Recent studies suggest that the soluble triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-like transcript 1 (sTLT-1) facilitate atherothrombosis. Therefore, we evaluated sTLT-1 as a functional measure of atherothrombosis in acute coronary syndrome (ACS). METHODS: Levels of sTLT-1 were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay on plasma from patients with potential ACS and compared with an age-matched control group with similar risk factors for cardiovascular disease...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Some clinical variables are associated with bacteremia in patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). The aim of this study was to analyse the accuracy of the soluble form of triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-1 (sTREM-1) to predict positive blood cultures in comparison with established clinical prognostic variables. METHODS: In addition to collecting clinical and laboratory information, a commercially available immunoassay kit was used to measure the serum sTREM-1 levels on the first day of admit ion in patients with CAP...

Hypophosphatasia (HP) is a rare inborn error of bone and mineral metabolism characterized by a defect in the tissue non-specific alkaline phosphatase (TNSALP) gene. Calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate (CPPD) crystals are known to accumulate as substrates of TNSALP in tissues and joints of patients with HP. In CPPD-induced arthritis these crystals are known to induce an inflammatory response. HP patients do suffer from pain in their lower extremities. However, it is not clear whether CPPD crystals contribute to these musculoskeletal complaints in HP...
