We analyzed 1,900 Turkish Behçet's disease cases and 1,779 controls genotyped with the Immunochip. The most significantly associated SNP was rs1050502, a tag SNP for HLA-B*51. In the Turkish discovery set, we identified three new risk loci, IL1A-IL1B, IRF8, and CEBPB-PTPN1, with genome-wide significance (P < 5 × 10(-8)) by direct genotyping and ADO-EGR2 by imputation. We replicated the ADO-EGR2, IRF8, and CEBPB-PTPN1 loci by genotyping 969 Iranian cases and 826 controls. Imputed data in 608 Japanese cases and 737 controls further replicated ADO-EGR2 and IRF8, and meta-analysis additionally identified RIPK2 and LACC1...

PURPOSE: Variants in the gene encoding Programmed Cell Death-1 (PDCD1) have been associated with susceptibility to Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and other autoimmune diseases. Given that clinically distinct autoimmune phenotypes share common genetic susceptibility factors, variants in PDCD-1 were tested for a possible association with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). METHODS: Four single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPS) in the PDCD1 gene were genotyped and analyzed: rs10204525, rs7568402, rs7421861 and rs11568821 in 834 cases and 855 self-identified Caucasian controls...

OBJECTIVES: Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is a heterogeneous group of conditions unified by the presence of chronic childhood arthritis without an identifiable cause. Systemic JIA (sJIA) is a rare form of JIA characterised by systemic inflammation. sJIA is distinguished from other forms of JIA by unique clinical features and treatment responses that are similar to autoinflammatory diseases. However, approximately half of children with sJIA develop destructive, long-standing arthritis that appears similar to other forms of JIA...

OBJECTIVES: Autoinflammatory diseases cause systemic inflammation that can result in damage to multiple organs. A validated instrument is essential to quantify damage in individual patients and to compare disease outcomes in clinical studies. Currently, there is no such tool. Our objective was to develop a common autoinflammatory disease damage index (ADDI) for familial Mediterranean fever, cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes, tumour necrosis factor receptor-associated periodic fever syndrome and mevalonate kinase deficiency...

The Behçet's disease (BD)-associated human leukocyte antigen (HLA) allele, HLA-B*51 (B*51), encodes a ligand for a pair of allelic killer immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIR) present on cytotoxic cells-KIR3DL1, which inhibits their cytotoxicity, and KIR3DS1, which activates their cytotoxic activity. We tested whether KIR-regulated mechanisms contribute to BD by testing for association of KIR3DL1/KIR3DS1 genotypes with disease in 1799 BD patients and 1710 healthy controls from Turkey, as well as in different subsets of individuals with HLA-type-defined ligands for the KIR3D receptors...

Systemic autoinflammatory diseases are caused by mutations in genes that function in innate immunity. Here, we report an autoinflammatory disease caused by loss-of-function mutations in OTULIN (FAM105B), encoding a deubiquitinase with linear linkage specificity. We identified two missense and one frameshift mutations in one Pakistani and two Turkish families with four affected patients. Patients presented with neonatal-onset fever, neutrophilic dermatitis/panniculitis, and failure to thrive, but without obvious primary immunodeficiency...

Systemic autoinflammatory diseases are driven by abnormal activation of innate immunity. Herein we describe a new disease caused by high-penetrance heterozygous germline mutations in TNFAIP3, which encodes the NF-κB regulatory protein A20, in six unrelated families with early-onset systemic inflammation. The disorder resembles Behçet's disease, which is typically considered a polygenic disorder with onset in early adulthood. A20 is a potent inhibitor of the NF-κB signaling pathway. Mutant, truncated A20 proteins are likely to act through haploinsufficiency because they do not exert a dominant-negative effect in overexpression experiments...

Systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (sJIA) is an often severe, potentially life-threatening childhood inflammatory disease, the pathophysiology of which is poorly understood. To determine whether genetic variation within the MHC locus on chromosome 6 influences sJIA susceptibility, we performed an association study of 982 children with sJIA and 8,010 healthy control subjects from nine countries. Using meta-analysis of directly observed and imputed SNP genotypes and imputed classic HLA types, we identified the MHC locus as a bona fide susceptibility locus with effects on sJIA risk that transcended geographically defined strata...

BACKGROUND: Lipid transfer protein (LTP), an abundant protein in fruits, vegetables, and nuts, is a common food allergen in Mediterranean areas causing diverse allergic reactions. Approximately 40% of food-related anaphylaxis induced by LTPs requires nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) as a triggering cofactor. OBJECTIVE: We sought to better understand the determinants of NSAID-dependent and NSAID-independent LTP-induced anaphylaxis (LTP-A). METHODS: Selection of patients was based on a proved clinical history of NSAID-dependent or NSAID-independent anaphylaxis to LTPs, positive skin prick test response to LTPs, and serum LTP IgE...

The effect of O(3) on C(2)H(4)/synthetic-air flame propagation at sub-atmospheric pressure was investigated through detailed experiments and simulations. A Hencken burner provided an ideal platform to interrogate flame speed enhancement, producing a steady, laminar, nearly one-dimensional, minimally curved, weakly stretched, and nearly adiabatic flame that could be accurately compared with simulations. The experimental results showed enhancement of up to 7.5% in flame speed for 11 000 ppm of O(3) at stoichiometric conditions...

Monogenic diseases usually demonstrate Mendelian inheritance and are caused by highly penetrant genetic variants of a single gene. In contrast, genetically complex diseases arise from a combination of multiple genetic and environmental factors. The concept of autoinflammation originally emerged from the identification of individual, activating lesions of the innate immune system as the molecular basis of the hereditary periodic fever syndromes. In addition to these rare, monogenic forms of autoinflammation, genetically complex autoinflammatory diseases like the periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis, and cervical adenitis (PFAPA) syndrome, chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO), Behçet's disease, and systemic arthritis also fulfill the definition of autoinflammatory diseases-namely, the development of apparently unprovoked episodes of inflammation without identifiable exogenous triggers and in the absence of autoimmunity...

BACKGROUND: Hyperzincemia and hypercalprotectinemia (Hz/Hc) is a distinct autoinflammatory entity involving extremely high serum concentrations of the proinflammatory alarmin myeloid-related protein (MRP) 8/14 (S100A8/S100A9 and calprotectin). OBJECTIVE: We sought to characterize the genetic cause and clinical spectrum of Hz/Hc. METHODS: Proline-serine-threonine phosphatase-interacting protein 1 (PSTPIP1) gene sequencing was performed in 14 patients with Hz/Hc, and their clinical phenotype was compared with that of 11 patients with pyogenic arthritis, pyoderma gangrenosum, and acne (PAPA) syndrome...

OBJECTIVE: To identify the cause of disease in an adult patient presenting with recent-onset fevers, chills, urticaria, fatigue, and profound myalgia, who was found to be negative for cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome (CAPS) NLRP3 mutations by conventional Sanger DNA sequencing. METHODS: We performed whole-exome sequencing and targeted deep sequencing using DNA from the patient's whole blood to identify a possible NLRP3 somatic mutation. We then screened for this mutation in subcloned NLRP3 amplicons from fibroblasts, buccal cells, granulocytes, negatively selected monocytes, and T and B lymphocytes and further confirmed the somatic mutation by targeted sequencing of exon 3...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: We aim to give an overview of the recent progress in the knowledge of the genetic component of vasculitides. RECENT FINDINGS: Using a state-of-the-art imputation method to analyse the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) region, Ombrello and colleagues narrowed down the association between human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-B51 and Behçet's disease to a model of five amino acids of the HLA-B molecule involved in the binding of the antigen, the interactions with receptors on CD8 T cells and natural killer cells, and the signal peptide of HLA-B, suggesting a crucial role of the cellular cytotoxicity on this disease...

Genetic and genomic investigations are a starting point for the study of human disease, seeking to discover causative variants relevant to disease pathophysiology. Over the past 5 years, massively parallel, high-throughput, next-generation sequencing techniques have revolutionized genetics and genomics, identifying the causes of many Mendelian diseases. The application of whole-genome sequencing and whole-exome sequencing to large populations has produced several publicly available sequence datasets that have revealed the scope of human genetic variation and have contributed to important methodological advances in the study of both common and rare genetic variants in genetically complex diseases...
