Intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) is a life-threatening condition in children. Inherited bleeding disorders (IBD) have high risk of ICH.
We report the outcome of 12 patients with inherited neurotransmitter disorders of monoamine, tetrahydrobiopterin and γ amino butyric acid metabolisms from a single Inherited Neurotransmitter Disorder...
Nanodiamonds are promising nanomedicines for diagnostic and therapeutic applications. As nanodiamonds are mainly administered intravenously, it is critical to understand the humoral immune response up...
Endochondral ossification is important for skeletal development. Recent findings indicate that the p65 (RelA) subunit, a main subunit of the classical nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) pathway, plays essent...
The human complement receptor type 2 (CR2)/CR1 fusion protein TT32, a novel targeted inhibitor of the classical and alternative pathway C3 convertases, prevents arthritis in active immunization and passive transfer mouse models.
Complement activation in human diseases is characterized by the local covalent deposition of the long-lived C3 fragments iC3b/C3dg/C3d. Previously, TT30, a complement alternative pathway (AP)-selectiv...
This study includes comatose survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest treated with 24 hours or 48 hours of targeted temperature management. The overall aim is to evaluate the importanc...
Atypical hemolytic syndrome (aHUS) is a severe renal disease affecting children and adults. It is characterized by the occlusion of intrarenal vessels due to the presence of platelet/fibri...
Safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of a Single Ascending Dose (SAD) and a Multiple Dose (MD) of the complement inhibitor AMY-101. A prospective, single-c...
Atypical hemolytic uraemic syndrome is caused by defects in the regulating factors in the alternative pathway of the complement system. Triggering can cause an uncontrolled complement acti...
Acute appendicitis is a common condition requiring urgent surgery but is often difficult to distinguish from other non-surgical conditions such as urinary infections, pelvic inflammatory d...
The larger fragment generated from the cleavage of COMPLEMENT C3 by C3 CONVERTASE. It is a constituent of the ALTERNATIVE PATHWAY C3 CONVERTASE (C3bBb), and COMPLEMENT C5 CONVERTASES in both the classical (C4b2a3b) and the alternative (C3bBb3b) pathway. C3b participates in IMMUNE ADHERENCE REACTION and enhances PHAGOCYTOSIS. It can be inactivated (iC3b) or cleaved by various proteases to yield fragments such as COMPLEMENT C3C; COMPLEMENT C3D; C3e; C3f; and C3g.
A component of the CLASSICAL COMPLEMENT PATHWAY. C2 is cleaved by activated COMPLEMENT C1S into COMPLEMENT C2B and COMPLEMENT C2A. C2a, the COOH-terminal fragment containing a SERINE PROTEASE, combines with COMPLEMENT C4B to form C4b2a (CLASSICAL PATHWAY C3 CONVERTASE) and subsequent C4b2a3b (CLASSICAL PATHWAY C5 CONVERTASE).
A serine protease that cleaves multiple COMPLEMENT 5 into COMPLEMENT 5A (anaphylatoxin) and COMPLEMENT 5B in the CLASSICAL COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION PATHWAY. It is a complex of CLASSICAL PATHWAY C3 CONVERTASE (C4b2a) with an additional COMPLEMENT C3B, or C4b2a3b.
Serum glycoproteins participating in the host defense mechanism of COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION that creates the COMPLEMENT MEMBRANE ATTACK COMPLEX. Included are glycoproteins in the various pathways of complement activation (CLASSICAL COMPLEMENT PATHWAY; ALTERNATIVE COMPLEMENT PATHWAY; and LECTIN COMPLEMENT PATHWAY).
A serine protease that cleaves multiple COMPLEMENT C5 into COMPLEMENT C5A (anaphylatoxin) and COMPLEMENT C5B in the ALTERNATIVE COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION PATHWAY. It is the complex of ALTERNATIVE PATHWAY C3 CONVERTASE (C3bBb) with an additional COMPLEMENT C3B, or C3bBb3b.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
