Thyroid dysfunction is a common and severe side-effect encountered in up to 40% of patients treated with IFN-alpha-2a. The main two mechanisms by which IFN-alpha-2a induces thyroid dysfunction can be categorized as autoimmune and non-autoimmune disease. In the first subgroup, thyroid antibodies are found before treatment initiation, and then patients develop thyroiditis. In the second subgroup, IFN-alpha-2a induces thyroiditis by a direct cytotoxic effect on the thyroid gland; in this case, thyroid antibodies are usually negative...

PURPOSE: Panax Notoginseng, a traditional Chinese medicine, is known as an anti-inflammatory herb. However, the molecular mechanism by which it controls helper T cell mediated immune responses is largely unknown. METHODS: Naive CD4(+) T cells isolated from healthy donors, patients with Behcet's disease, and C57BL/6 mice were polarized into Th1, Th17, and Treg cells. Proliferation and cytokine expression were measured in these cells with the presence or absence of Panax Notoginseng saponins (PNS)...

Several recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) identified susceptibility loci/genes for Behçet's disease (BD). However, no study has specifically investigated the genetic susceptibility loci associated with intestinal involvement in BD. We aimed to identify distinctive genetic susceptibility loci/genes associated with intestinal involvement in BD and determine their roles in intestinal inflammation as well as their interactions with genes involved in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). GWAS and validation studies showed intestinal BD-specific associations with an NAALADL2 gene locus (rs3914501, P = 3...

Interleukin (IL)-1 plays a key role in the pathogenesis and thereafter in the search for specific treatments of different inflammatory and degenerative eye diseases. Indeed, an overactivity of IL-1 might be an initiating factor for many immunopathologic sceneries in the eye, as proven by the efficacy of the specific IL-1 blockade in different ocular diseases. For instance, the uveitis in monogenic autoinflammatory disorders, such as Blau syndrome and cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome, or in complex polygenic autoinflammatory disorders, such as Behçet's disease, has been successfully treated with IL-1 blockers...

Behçet disease (BD) is a multisystem disorder, with vasculitis as its underlying pathological process, in contrast to the classic triad of recurrent oral and genital ulcerations, with uveitis. Vascular involvement in BD includes venous thrombosis, arterial occlusion, and pulmonary artery and aortic aneurysm formation. Cardiac involvement is rare and often obscure. It includes intracardiac thrombi formation, and is associated with a poor prognosis. Our objectives are to describe two cases with BD, complicated with vascular and cardiac involvement, and to raise awareness of these rare complications, the needed routine surveillance, and thus to prevent inappropriate interventions, serious outcomes, and mortality...

In our study, we aimed to investigate the possible genetic drift, relationships, expansion and historical origin based on haplotype frequencies of the β-globin gene cluster of normal and Behçet's disease (BD) population in Denizli, Turkey. We examined blood DNA samples obtained from our DNA bank. The association of population genetic parameters such as haplotypes, diversity, differentiation, Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and demographic analysis for two populations was performed by Arlequin ver. 3.5. Our results show that both populations have high similarity in genetic parameters in terms of development and expansion based on haplotype diversity through the history...

PURPOSE: Patients with intestinal Behçet's disease who underwent intestinal resective surgery often require reoperation. However, there have been no studies on the risk factors and outcomes of early reoperation in these patients. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 41 patients with intestinal Behçet's disease who received repeated intestinal resective surgeries between 2006 and 2016. We analyzed two different patient groups-those who required early reoperation within 6 months and those who underwent reoperation >6 months after the initial surgery-and determined the risk factors for early reoperation...

OBJECTIVES: Prosthetic valve dehiscence after aortic valve surgery in Behçet's disease patients is common. We aimed to validate the usefulness of our new technique 'subannular endomyocardial implantation of valve prosthesis' designed to prevent prosthetic valve dehiscence. METHODS: Subannular endomyocardial implantation of valve prosthesis involves suturing the sewing cuff of the valve prosthesis in the endomyocardium below the aortic annulus, which is based on the idea that annular tissue should be excluded from the suture line in Behçet's disease patients...

Behcet's disease is a condition characterized by systemic vasculitis liable to thrombosis, and may involve the parenchyma and blood vessels in the brain. We report a case of Behcet's disease that progressed into central neural system involvement rapidly due to failure of tertiary prevention. This case demonstrates the importance of management of the high risk factors of thrombosis and timely prevention of disease progression.
