Papers on complement factor D
Serum Biomarkers of Allergic Contact Dermatitis: A Pilot Study.
Girkontaitė et al., Vilnius, Lithuania. In Int Arch Allergy Immunol, Feb 2016
RESULTS: Serum levels of adiponectin, chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 5 (CCL5), C-reactive protein (CRP), chitinase 3-like 1 (CHI3L1), complement factor D (CFD), endoglin, lipocalin-2, osteopontin, retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4), and platelet factor 4 (PF4) were significantly higher, whereas levels of trefoil factor 3 (TFF3) were significantly lower, in ACD patients than in healthy controls.
MASP-1 and MASP-2 Do Not Activate Pro-Factor D in Resting Human Blood, whereas MASP-3 Is a Potential Activator: Kinetic Analysis Involving Specific MASP-1 and MASP-2 Inhibitors.
Dobó et al., Budapest, Hungary. In J Immunol, Feb 2016
It had been thought that complement factor D (FD) is activated at the site of synthesis, and only FD lacking a propeptide is present in blood.
The levels of the adipokines adipsin and leptin are associated with knee osteoarthritis progression as assessed by MRI and incidence of total knee replacement in symptomatic osteoarthritis patients: a post hoc analysis.
Pelletier et al., Montréal, Canada. In Rheumatology (oxford), Jan 2016
Serum levels of adipsin (complement factor D), leptin, adiponectin, resistin and serpin E1, and cartilage volume were determined at baseline and 24 months with specific ELISAs and qMRI, respectively.
Emixustat and Lampalizumab: Potential Therapeutic Options for Geographic Atrophy.
Nguyen et al., In Dev Ophthalmol, Dec 2015
Emixustat, an orally administered visual cycle inhibitor, and lampalizumab, an intravitreally administered monoclonal body directed against complement factor D, have shown promise in phase 2 clinical trials in the treatment of nonneovascular (dry) AMD.
Microarray Analysis Reveals Altered Lipid and Glucose Metabolism Genes in Differentiated, Ritonavir-Treated 3T3-L1 Adipocytes.
Mullen et al., London, United Kingdom. In Curr Hiv Res, Dec 2015
Gene ontology analysis revealed down-regulation of genes responsible for adipocyte triglyceride accumulation including complement factor D (Cfd; 238.42-fold),
A mechanistic pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic model of factor D inhibition in cynomolgus monkeys by lampalizumab for the treatment of geographic atrophy.
Hanley et al., San Francisco, United States. In J Pharmacol Exp Ther, Nov 2015
Lampalizumab is an antigen-binding fragment of a humanized monoclonal antibody against complement factor D (CFD), a rate-limiting enzyme in the activation and amplification of the alternative complement pathway (ACP), which is in phase III clinical trials for the treatment of geographic atrophy.
Population Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Lampalizumab Administered Intravitreally to Patients With Geographic Atrophy.
Jin et al., San Francisco, United States. In Cpt Pharmacometrics Syst Pharmacol, Oct 2015
Intravitreally administered lampalizumab is an investigational complement inhibitor directed against complement factor D (CFD) for the treatment of geographic atrophy (GA) secondary to age-related macular degeneration.
Comprehensive and comparative transcription analyses of the complement pathway in rainbow trout.
Goldammer et al., Germany. In Fish Shellfish Immunol, 2015
In the present study, we characterize the genes encoding complement factor D (CFD), CD93 molecule (CD93), and C-type lectin domain family 4, member M (CLEC4M) from rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss).
Age-related macular degeneration: a complementopathy?
Berendschot et al., Maastricht, Netherlands. In Ophthalmic Res, 2014
Abundant evidence includes: the identification of drusen components as activators of complement, immunohistochemical data showing the presence of many species of the complement system in the retinal pigment epithelium-Bruch's membrane-choroidocapillary region of AMD eyes, a strong association of AMD with certain genetic complement protein variants, raised complement levels in blood from AMD patients and the preliminary successful treatments of geographic atrophy with complement factor D (FD) inhibitors.
Granule Associated Serine Proteases of Hematopoietic Cells - An Analysis of Their Appearance and Diversification during Vertebrate Evolution.
Hellman et al., Uppsala, Sweden. In Plos One, 2014
Here, the most well conserved member was complement factor D. However, genes distantly related to the neutrophil proteases were also identified in this locus in several bony fish species, indicating that this locus is also old and appeared at the base of bony fish.
The role of the complement system in age-related macular degeneration.
Holz et al., London, United Kingdom. In Dtsch Arztebl Int, 2014
Several clinical trials designed to interfere specifically with these pathomechanisms have yielded rather disappointing results, although a phase II study of the monoclonal antibody lampalizumab showed that blocking complement factor D lessened the progression of geographic atrophy.
Induction of IL-17A Precedes Development of Airway Hyperresponsiveness during Diet-Induced Obesity and Correlates with Complement Factor D.
Shore et al., Boston, United States. In Front Immunol, 2013
Pulmonary expression of Cfd (complement factor D, adipsin), a gene whose expression can be reduced by IL-17A, decreased after both 18 and 24 weeks in HFD versus chow fed mice.
Sorbents in the treatment of renal failure.
Salsberg et al., United States. In Minerva Urol Nefrol, 2004
Removal of LMWP such as beta2-microglobulin, leptin, complement factor D, angiogenin, and cytokines such as IL-1, IL-6, IL-10, IL-18 and TNFalpha, have been established in animal models of sepsis, and in ESRD patients using sorbents in conjunction with high flux dialysis.
Hemodialysis membranes: interleukins, biocompatibility, and middle molecules.
Hörl, Vienna, Austria. In J Am Soc Nephrol, 2002
Polymorphonuclear leukocyte degranulation occurring during extracorporeal circulation does not depend on complement activation but rather on intracellular calcium and the presence or absence of the degranulation inhibitory proteins angiogenin and complement factor D. Clinical signs and symptoms of end-stage renal disease patients are at least in part related to the accumulation of middle molecules such as beta(2)-microglobulin, parathyroid hormone, advanced glycation end products, advanced lipoxidation end products, advanced oxidation protein products (formed as a result of oxidative stress, carbonyl stress, or both), granulocyte inhibitory proteins, or leptin.
Adipsin and complement factor D activity: an immune-related defect in obesity.
Spiegelman et al., Boston, United States. In Science, 1989
Activated adipsin has little or no proteolytic activity toward most substrates but has the same activity as human complement factor D, cleaving complement factor B when it is complexed with activated complement component C3.
