Extracellular vesicles are associated with the systemic inflammation of patients with seropositive rheumatoid arthritis

Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and autoantibodies, such as rheumatoid factor and those against cyclic citrullinated peptides, are designated as seropositive and have a more severe disease with worse prognosis than seronegative RA patients. Understanding the factors that participate in systemic inflammation, in addition to articular commitment, would allow better...

Microparticles That Form Immune Complexes as Modulatory Structures in Autoimmune Responses

Microparticles (MPs) are induced during apoptosis, cell activation, and even “spontaneous” release. Initially MPs were considered to be inert cellular products with no biological function. However, an extensive research and functional characterization have shown that the molecular composition and the effects of MPs depend upon the cellular background and the mechanism inducing...

Anticuerpos Anti-C1q como marcadores de compromiso renal en pacientes con lupus eritematoso sistémico

Summary Renal involvement in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is one of the major determinants Anti-C1q antibodies of the course and prognosis of these patients. There is evidence of the association of Anti-DNA antibodies anti-C1q antibodies and the development of lupus nephritis. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of anti-C1q antibodies and its association...

Síndrome de Churg-Strauss: a propósito de un caso con manifestaciones poco usuales

Churg-Strauss syndrome, a necrotizing systemic vasculitis which involves the small and (more rarely) the medium-sized vessels, is a primary vasculitis strongly associated with antineutrophil cytoplasm antibodies (ANCA). It is characterized by the presence of asthma, eosinophilia and extravascular eosinophilic granulomas. Herein, we report a 36-year-old woman with a history of...

Reticulohistiocitosis multicéntrica

Multicentric reticulohistiocytosis (MRH) is a disease of unknown etiology that affects primarily women in the fourth decade of life. Articular involvement is characterized by the presence of symmetric synovitis of the upper extremities, particularly of the hands, and compromise of the skin with lesions of different morphology, more commonly nodules and papules localized mainly on...
