Eltrombopag Added to Standard Immunosuppression for Aplastic Anemia
01/01/70 - In patients with aplastic anemia, the "empty" bone marrow does not produce blood cells, and when pancytopenia is severe and untreated, almost all patients die within 1 year after diagnosis. Acquired aplastic anemia has immune pathophysiological features, as inferred from numerous laboratory studies…

Prevention of Hereditary Angioedema Attacks with a Subcutaneous C1 Inhibitor
01/01/70 - Hereditary angioedema is a disabling and potentially fatal condition characterized by recurrent episodes of swelling without urticaria or pruritus. The condition is caused by deficiency (type I) or dysfunction (type II) of the C1 inhibitor protein. Patients have insufficient C1 inhibitor function…

Interleukin-12 and Interleukin-23 Blockade in Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency Type 1
01/01/70 - LAD1 is a primary immunodeficiency resulting from mutations in ITGB2, which encodes the common CD18 subunit of the ?2 integrins; the ?2 integrins are required for the adhesion of neutrophils to endothelium and the transmigration of neutrophils into tissues. Patients with LAD1 typically have…

ST2 and Endothelial Injury as a Link between GVHD and Microangiopathy
01/01/70 - To the Editor: Vander Lugt et al. (Aug. 8, 2013, issue) report an association between elevated levels of ST2 protein, a marker of endothelial injury, at the time of diagnosis of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and resistance to glucocorticoid therapy among the recipients of hematopoietic stem-cell…

Breaking a Vicious Cycle
01/01/70 - In this issue of the Journal, Moutsopoulos et al. report on a patient with leukocyte adhesion deficiency type 1 (LAD1) who was successfully treated with ustekinumab, a monoclonal antibody to the p40 subunit common to interleukin-12 and interleukin-23. Patients with LAD1 have defective neutrophil…

Post-Babesiosis Warm Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia

Anti?Interleukin-31 Receptor A Antibody for Atopic Dermatitis
01/01/70 - Atopic dermatitis is a chronic pruritic, inflammatory skin disease that is triggered by an immune response to antigenic substances, irritants, and mechanical irritation and which is often associated with a personal or family history of type 1 allergies, allergic rhinitis, or asthma. Pruritus often…

Ditching the Itch with Anti?Type 2 Cytokine Therapies for Atopic Dermatitis
01/01/70 - Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by intense pruritus and dry, inflamed skin. An impaired skin barrier and a dysregulated immune response to a variety of triggers are key factors in the complex pathophysiological mechanism of this disease. The predominant early…

Inhibiting Plasma Kallikrein for Hereditary Angioedema Prophylaxis
01/01/70 - Hereditary angioedema with C1 inhibitor deficiency is a rare genetic disease that is characterized by recurrent swelling episodes, typically affecting the subcutaneous or submucosal tissues of the hands and feet, abdomen, face, larynx, or genitourinary tract. Swelling of the larynx can be…
