Multiple cytokine-producing testicular malignant lymphoma with clinical symptoms resembling infectious signs.
Ōsaka, Japan. In Int J Immunopathol Pharmacol, Jan 2014
This is the first case report of testicular diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, not otherwise specified (DLBCL, NOS) immunostained for multiple cytokines and their receptors, which clearly demonstrates that tumor cells express multiple cytokines [interleukin-6 (IL-6) and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF)] and their receptors [IL-6 receptor (IL-6R) and G-CSF receptor (G-CSFR)].
Metalloproteinases and their natural inhibitors in inflammation and immunity.
Toronto, Canada. In Nat Rev Immunol, Sep 2013
Together with their endogenous inhibitors TIMPs (tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases), these enzymes regulate signalling downstream of the tumour necrosis factor receptor and the interleukin-6 receptor, as well as that downstream of the epidermal growth factor receptor and Notch, which are all pertinent for inflammatory responses.
Predicting high risk disease using serum and DNA biomarkers.
Toronto, Canada. In Curr Opin Urol, May 2013
RECENT FINDINGS: There is increasing evidence that serum biomarkers human Kallikrein 2, early prostate cancer antigen, urokinase-type plasminogen activator/urokinase-type plasminogen activator receptor, transforming growth factor-β1 and interleukin-6/interleukin-6 receptor and genetic biomarkers BRCA1 and BRCA2, Phosphatase and tensin homolog, cellular myelocytomatosis oncogene and NKX3.1 may predict for aggressive high grade disease and are identifiable early in prostate carcinogenesis.
Randomized trial of tocilizumab in systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
Roma, Italy. In N Engl J Med, 2013
METHODS: We randomly assigned 112 children, 2 to 17 years of age, with active systemic JIA (duration of ≥6 months and inadequate responses to nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs and glucocorticoids) to the anti-interleukin-6 receptor antibody tocilizumab (at a dose of 8 mg per kilogram of body weight if the weight was ≥30 kg or 12 mg per kilogram if the weight was <30 kg) or placebo given intravenously every 2 weeks during the 12-week, double-blind phase.
[Indications and efficacy of biologics in inflammatory arthritis].
Montpellier, France. In Bull Acad Natl Med, 2012
Later, rituximab, an anti-CD20 B lymphocyte antibody ; abatacept, which inhibits the T cell co-stimulatory CD28-CD80 pathway ; and tocilizumab, an interleukin-6 receptor inhibitor, were launched in rheumatoid arthritis.
