Immune Complex Diseases
Group of diseases mediated by the deposition of large soluble complexes of antigen and antibody with resultant damage to tissue. Besides SERUM SICKNESS and the ARTHUS REACTION, evidence supports a pathogenic role for immune complexes in many other IMMUNE SYSTEM DISEASES including GLOMERULONEPHRITIS, systemic lupus erythematosus (LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS, SYSTEMIC) and POLYARTERITIS NODOSA.
Glomerulonephritis associated with autoimmune disease SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS. Lupus nephritis is histologically classified into 6 classes: class I - normal glomeruli, class II - pure mesangial alterations, class III - focal segmental glomerulonephritis, class IV - diffuse glomerulonephritis, class V - diffuse membranous glomerulonephritis, and class VI - advanced sclerosing glomerulonephritis (The World Health Organization classification 1982).
Work consisting of an acknowledgment of an error, issued by a publisher, editor, or author. It customarily cites the source where the error occurred, giving complete bibliographic data for retrieval. In the case of books and monographs, author, title, imprint, paging, and other helpful references will be given; in the case of journal articles, the author, title, paging, and journal reference will be shown. An erratum notice is variously cited as Errata or Corrigenda.
A group of inherited conditions characterized initially by HEMATURIA and slowly progressing to RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. The most common form is the Alport syndrome (hereditary nephritis with HEARING LOSS) which is caused by mutations in genes for TYPE IV COLLAGEN and defective GLOMERULAR BASEMENT MEMBRANE.
The complex formed by the binding of antigen and antibody molecules. The deposition of large antigen-antibody complexes leading to tissue damage causes IMMUNE COMPLEX DISEASES.
Tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN) is a disease pattern with heterogeneous causes. Recently a specific subtype of autoimmune TIN, IgG4-related TIN, has been identified that is part of systemic IgG4-re...
Hydatid disease of the kidney is rare, particularly in the isolated form, and tubulointerstitial nephritis is an extremely uncommon manifestation of renal hydatidosis. Here is the report of a patient...
Tubulointerstitial nephritis and uveitis (TINU) is a rare syndrome with unknown pathogenesis. Data have shown a higher prevalence in female gender. We present a man with tubulointerstitial nephritis a...
Acute tubulointerstitial nephritis was formerly only observed during the early phase of infections. With the emergence of antibiotics this disease became a rarity. In contrast the importance of drug-a...
The authors report the association of tubulointerstitial nephritis and uveitis (TINU) with Hashimoto's thyroiditis in a 16-year-old boy. Oral prednisolone was administered and the renal function norma...
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic, multisystem, autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks its own normal tissues. This abnormal autoimmune response can res...
Mesenchymal Stem Cell (MSC) has been shown to have immunosuppressive and repairing properties. Manifestations of systemic lupus eryhematosus(SLE) may in most patients be ameliorated with m...
The investigators study the efficacy and safety of tacrolimus in the treatment of membranous nephritis secondary to systemic lupus erythematosus.
Cyclophosphamide is widely used in the treatment of cancer and autoimmune diseases such as lupus nephritis. However, there is considerable variability in the response to cyclophosphamide t...
