First described in 1983, antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune condition characterized by the occurrence of recurrent arterial and/or venous thrombosis, and/or pregnancy morbidity, in the setting of persistent presence of antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL). While thrombosis is the most well-known pathogenic mechanism in this disorder, the relevance of some other mechanisms such as arterial stenosis is being increasingly recognized. Arterial stenosis has been first described in the renal arteries in patients with APS, however intracranial and coeliac arteries can also be involved with various and treatable clinical manifestations...

Villous atrophy in absence of coeliac disease (CD)-specific antibodies represents a diagnostic dilemma. We report a case of a woman with anaemia, weight loss and diarrhoea with an initial diagnosis of seronegative CD and a histological documented villous atrophy who did not improve on gluten-free diet due to the concomitant presence of common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) and Giardia lamblia infection. This case report confirms that CD diagnosis in CVID patients is difficult; the combination of anti-endomysial antibodies (EmA-IgA), anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies (tTG-IgAb) antibodies and total IgA is obligatory in basic diagnostic of CD but in CVID are negative...

Aims: Chronic increase of mineralocorticoids obtained by administration of Deoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA) results in salt dependent hypertension in animals. Despite the lack of a generalized sympathoexcitation, DOCA-salt hypertension has been also associated to overdrive of peripheral nervous system in organs typically targeted by blood pressure (BP), as kidneys and vasculature. Aim of this study was to explore whether DOCA-salt recruits immune system by overactivating sympathetic nervous system in lymphoid organs and whether this is relevant for hypertension...

BACKGROUND: The presenting symptoms of coeliac disease are often subtle and the diagnosis is frequently delayed or overlooked. Therefore, especially elderly patients may be denied the benefits conferred by gluten free diet which can be dramatically life-changing. AIM: To review the occurrence, clinical features, diagnosis and management in coeliac patients detected later in life. METHODS: To review manuscripts concerned with coeliac disease in the elderly and to derive subgroups of elderly people from publications on the disorder...

OBJECTIVES: Reimplantation of branch vessels is an important component of thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. The goal of this study was to assess the anatomical results of branch vessel reimplantation, which have rarely been investigated. METHODS: Among 168 patients who underwent computed tomography after thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, the technique of branch vessel reimplantation and determination of their patency were investigated. Late computed tomographic images were available for 81 patients (mean interval 55...

The development of clinical guidelines is now a more uniform process, with formalised methods to ensure that recommendations are based on current best available evidence from randomised controlled trials and systematic reviews. Over the past 20 years we have seen a growth in guidelines including those relating to osteoporosis, with recommendations varying between and within countries. Some guidelines are concerned with case finding and primary or secondary prevention, such as those produced by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE CG146, TA-160, -161, -464), while others focus on specific conditions or risk factors associated with osteoporosis, such as the menopause, coeliac disease and eating disorder...

Coeliac disease (CD) is an autoimmune disease, characterised by a permanent sensitivity to gluten. It is being progressively recognised as a multisystemic disease, with multiple extraintestinal manifestations. Skin conditions (eg, dermatitis herpetiformis) are an example of its manifestations; however, its underlying mechanisms are still not well understood. This article presents three cases of uncommon skin conditions in patients with a history of CD. Two of them concern linear IgA bullous dermatosis and erythema nodosum, which have been described in the literature as having potential associations with CD, though only a few cases were reported...

BACKGROUND: The hybrid SPIDER-graft consists of a proximal descending aortic stent graft and a conventional six branched Dacron graft for open abdominal aortic repair. Technical feasibility with regard to avoiding thoracotomy and extracorporeal circulation (ECC) during thoraco-abdominal aortic hybrid repair and peri-procedural safety of this novel device are unknown. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This was a feasibility and safety study in domestic pigs (75-85 kg). The abdominal aorta including iliac bifurcation, left renal artery, and visceral arteries were exposed via retroperitoneal access...

BACKGROUND: Enzymatic modification of wheat proteins during dough fermentation, and its digestion supported by peptidases of microbiological origin can cause degradation of important peptides in the pathogenesis of coeliac disease. However, baking bread and the high temperature associated with could change a physicochemical and immunological properties of proteins. Thermal changes in spatial structure of proteins and its hydrolysis can lead to masking or degrading immunoreactive peptides...

BACKGROUND: Coeliac disease is characterised by an increased mortality mostly due to its complications. AIMS: To study the risk of developing complications according to clinical presentation and age at diagnosis, a combined retrospective-prospective longitudinal study was performed in three Italian centres. METHODS: Incidence of complications and mortality rates were calculated using type and age at diagnosis of coeliac disease, sex, and centre of diagnosis as predictors...

OBJECTIVES: The outcome of endovascular repair (EVAR) for acute TAAA is reported and the applicability of the t-Branch off the shelf (OTS) device is determined. METHODS: Interrogation of a prospectively maintained database identified all patients who underwent EVAR for acute TAAA between September 2012 (when the first non-elective t-Branch case was performed) and November 2015. Early and medium-term outcomes were analysed. Survival and re-intervention-free survival were calculated by Kaplan-Meier analysis...

REVIEW
Barbara Hauser, Ulrike Harre
Many autoimmune diseases are associated with deranged bone metabolism. The resulting localized or systemic bone loss can compromise the quality of life of patients by causing local bone deformities or fragility fractures. There is emerging evidence that antibodies have a direct impact on key players of bone homeostasis, in particular osteoclasts. Clinical and pre-clinical studies provide insight into the function of autoantibodies related to Rheumatoid Arthritis (rheumatoid factor, anti-citrullinated protein antibodies, and anti-carbamylated protein antibodies) and their inflammation-independent interaction with bone cells...

Coeliac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) are characterized by autoantibodies targeting transglutaminase (TG)2 and TG3, respectively. Previous studies show that TG2 antibodies are produced in the gut and can be assessed in organ culture of small-intestinal biopsies from patients with coeliac disease. Thus far, no studies have investigated TG3 antibodies in organ culture of biopsies from patients with DH, or exploited the method in DH. The aim of this study was to investigate TG3 and TG2 antibody responses in serum and small-intestinal biopsies from patients with DH with active disease, and from those in remission...

Data about the effect of zinc supplementation with gluten-free diet on normalisation of plasma zinc, copper and iron in patients with coeliac disease are scanty. We evaluated the effect of zinc supplementation on serum zinc, copper and iron levels in patients with coeliac disease, by randomising 71 children newly diagnosed with coeliac disease into two groups: Group A = gluten-free diet (GFD); and Group B = gluten-free diet with zinc supplements (GFD +Zn). The rise in iron and zinc was significantly higher in the latter, but the mean rise of copper levels was slightly higher in the former, but the difference was not significant...

Environmental enteric dysfunction (EED) is a disease of the small intestine affecting children and adults in low and middle income countries. Arising as a consequence of repeated infections, gut inflammation results in impaired intestinal absorptive and barrier function, leading to poor nutrient uptake and ultimately to stunting and other developmental limitations. Progress towards new biomarkers and interventions for EED is hampered by the practical and ethical difficulties of cross-validation with the gold standard of biopsy and histology...
