BACKGROUND: immune thrombocytopenic purpura is characterized by bleeding disorders associated with decreased platelet count secondary to antiplatelet autoantibodies. The aim of this study was to evaluate the utility of rituximab in the management of refractory immune thrombocytopenic purpura. CLINICAL CASES: four women with immune thrombocytopenic purpura unresponsiveness to standard therapy were evaluated in relation to clinical response and total platelets counts at different time intervals after rituximab administration...

Perinatal hemolytic disease occurs secondary to a hemolytic phenomenon of immune origin resulting in fetal or neonatal anemia. A 38-year-old pregnant woman was referred to the Department of high risk Obstetrics, Hospital Universitario La Paz Madrid because of presenting a dichorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy spontaneously, pre-pregnancy diabetes poorly controlled and severe alloinmunization anti-D. Her first pregnancy ended in a normal delivery at term; in the period of 4 years, she has three newborn with 36, 34 and 40 weeks respectively, who die with a week of life...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical and biological differences between medium sized vessel vasculitis and small vessel vasculitis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: descriptive and retrospective study of 91 patients with vasculitis attended in our hospital from January 1991 to mars 2001. We describe the characteristics of clinical and analytic features. RESULTS: 57% were males. The mean age was 61.9 +/- 18.6 years (17 to 90 years). The symptoms and affected organs were: palpable purpura (89%), fever (36%), asthenia (20%), arthromyalgias (19%), nephropathy (18%), arthritis (16%), abdominal pain (16%), neuropathy (8...

Great advances has been achieved in the last 10 years in the study of acute and chronic viral hepatitis. The enigma of non-A non-B viral hepatitis was disclosed when C virus was identified and later when E virus was isolated. New viruses has been searched to explain non-A to non-E viral hepatitis, being reported recently G virus. Epidemiology and clinical aspects has been reviewed identifying unusual clinical forms: choletasic and relapsing hepatitis in HAV infection; escape mutants B virus hepatitis in HVB infection; and the silent evolution to chronicity in more than 70% of cases in HVC infection...

BACKGROUND: Fear of adverse reactions is one of the reasons why influenza immunization programs for hospital workers have not met wide acceptance. We conducted a study in order to compare the frequency of adverse reactions following administration of standard split-virion (VVF) and subunit-virion (VAS) influenza vaccines, mostly among hospital personnel. METHODS: Trial with volunteers who were systematically assigned to receive one of the vaccines, alternating every ten participants, during the influenza inmunization campaing 1994-95...

Annual number of congenital rubellas in GDR was evaluated by means of a mathematic model. Dates of inmunity rate of rubella in L. and P. districts obtained by means of haemagglutination inhibition reaction were taken into account. From these dates of a number of possible primary cases of rubella infection in wifes in the first 3 months of pregnancy as well as literary dates on mean number of monsters determined after the infection, i.e. 10--15--25% cases, were evaluated. There were obtained in relation with different mean numbers of monsters 37--56--93 cases of congenital rubellas for live born children from mothers at the age of 14 to 45 years...

To evaluate cell-mediated immune responsiveness to pollen allergens in atopic subjects, we studied the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) synthetic responses of their cultured lymphocytes to purified ragweek antigens E, K, and Ra-3. Since lymphocytes from some highly ragweed-sensitive subjects gave poor proliferative responses when harvested on day 6, we undertook a series of dose-response and time-course studies in atopic and control subjects. Surprisingly, vigorous DNA synthetic responses to antigen E occurred with lymphocytes from all 45 subjects, including 19 highly ragweed-sensitive atopic and control subjects...

The capacity of human foetal lymphocytes to respond to PHA and to form E-rosettes have been compared with data from adult individuals. For this purpose a microculture system that uses whole blood and avoids the problems of lymphocyte separation, has been developed. Foetal lymphocytes reached optimal stimulation with lower dosis of PHA (31,2 microgram/ml) as compared with adult cells (125-252 microgram/ml). However their quantitative response (measured by 14C-thymidine uptake) was equal in both groups. In addition, peripheral T cells (E-rosetting cells) reached values of 36...
