Show results in: Español

  • Dirofilaria Immitis

    We have developed a single-tube, real-time PCR with a high-resolution melting (HRM) analysis assay for detection and identification of B. malayi, B. pahangi, and D. immitis[] […] the presence of diethylcarbamazine whereas the complement-fixing activity of microfilarial products was little affected by diethylcarbamazine; (2) complement proteins C3, properdin[] Positivity to mixed agents was not found to be a risk factor for disease.[]

  • Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome

    To date, influenza B has not been reported to trigger aHUS. A 6-month-old boy presented with hemolytic uremic syndrome triggered by influenza B infection.[] The same approach was used to model in vitro a potential aHUS treatment approach based on blocking the AP effector properdin (complement factor P; CFP) with an anti-properdin[] The subgroup of aHUS designated as DEAP (DEficiency of CFHR Proteins and CFH Autoantibody Positive)-HUS because of autoantibody to complement factor H (CFH) and CFH-related[]

  • Epilepsy

    Results Four patients (22.2%) were assigned to group A, 13 (72.2%) were assigned to group B, and 1 patient was assigned to group C (5.6%).[] Concentrations of 10 complement analytes (C1q, C3, C4, factor B [FB], terminal complement complex [TCC], iC3b, factor H [FH], Clusterin [Clu], Properdin, C1 Inhibitor [C1Inh[] Interpersonal factors explained more variation in depression levels in patients with PNES than those with epilepsy, for whom illness related factors were more influential,[]

  • Ovariectomy

    However, mice lacking RANKL in B lymphocytes were partially protected from the bone loss caused by ovariectomy.[] Results established upregulation of macrophage-associated (Cd45, Iba1, Cd68, Cd11b, Cd18, Fcgr1a, Fcgr2b) and complement (C3, factor B, properdin) genes in response to ovariectomy[] […] ovariectomy and ERT on serum leptin levels and anthropometric measurements as well as interaction among leptin, sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG), and insulin like growth factor-I[]

  • Lupus Nephritis

    Areas covered: This review provides an update regarding targeting B cells in LN.[] Serial sera samples were analyzed, and autoantibodies to complement alternative pathway proteins (Factor I, Factor B, C3 and Properdin) were found.[] MSCs suppressed systemic and intrarenal activation of C5, increased the plasma levels of factor H (FH), and ameliorated renal disease in lupus mice.[]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    […] pneumonia and influenza B infection in these facilities.[] Serum complement studies revealed decreased levels of C4, properdin, and C3.[] This retrospective study assessed these factors in hospitalized patients suffering from pneumococcal pneumonia from 2002 to 2015.[]

  • Membranoproliferative Glomerulonephritis

    PRES as a complication during the treatment of MPGN secondary to hepatitis B has, to our knowledge, never been reported previously in the literature.[] NFt stabilizes the alternative pathway properdin-dependent C3/C5 convertase (C3Bb2,Bb,P) and leads to C3 activation and consumption.[] Factor H autoantibodies are found in 10% of aHUS patients.[]

  • Gamma Globulin

    A 49-yr-old man with chronic hepatitis B manifested hypergammaglobulinemia, lymphadenopathy, and a high serum interleukin-6 level following treatment with recombinant human[] […] to belong to the γ 1A (β 2A ) globulins of similar size, and an ever increasing number of antibodies and biologically active substances such as the rheumatoid factor and properdin[] The VII:C level was 2%, and 4 Bethesda units of factor VIII inhibitor were detected.[]

  • Cefotaxime

    The authors describe a case of relapse of Neisseria meningitidis serogroup B meningitis in a 21-y-old male, 48 h after a 5-day treatment with cefotaxime 215 mg/kg per day.[] Risk factors and antibiograms may improve the selection of appropriate therapy for CTXNS-En bacteremia.[] Group B Streptococcus is a primary source of pneumonia, which is a leading cause of death worldwide.[]

  • Necrotizing Ulcerative Gingivitis

    Specific alleles at complement factors C3 and C4, and properdin factor B (Bf) loci were determined indirectly by high voltage agarose gel electrophoresis in 58 subjects with[] However, with regard to Synergistetes cluster B bacteria, there were no differences between NUG and gingivitis patients.[] She initially failed to respond to treatment with amphotericin B but the infection resolved following the introduction of oral itraconazole.[]
