Autoimmunity After Checkpoint Blockade

2019-10-15 11:11:24 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to better understand how the treatment of cancer with immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) leads to the development of autoimmunity. Specifically, we wish to understand the genetics and immune system features that cause a subset of cancer patients treated with checkpoint inhibitor therapy to develop an immune-related adverse event (irAE).

Trauma as a Trigger for Autoimmunity

To analyse the immunological reaction to Trauma (pertrochanteric femoral fracture with consequent osteosynthesis) in the first weeks up to one year postoperatively with focus on the develo...

Analysis of B Cells From Autoimmune Individuals

This observational study aims at finding out if individual with autoimmunity exhibit increased numbers of B cells that express two types (instead of one type) of antibodies, and if B cells...

Association of Thyroid Autoimmunity and Chronic Urticaria

Increase prevalence of thyroid autoimmunity is found in patients with chronic urticaria. About 5-34% of chronic urticaria patients is associated with the presence of thyroid autoimmunity w...

Thyroid Autoimmunity and Reproductive Failure in Danish Women

The present Ph.D.-study investigates the mechanisms behind the association between thyroid autoimmunity and reproductive failure.

Thrombophilia and Thyroid Autoimmunity in Implantation Failure and Recurrent Miscarriage

This study was designed to evaluate the incidence of both, inherited and adquired thrombophilia, and thyroid autoinmunity in unknown infertility (UI), implantation failure (IF) and recurre...

Doberman pinschers present autoimmunity associated with functional autoantibodies: A model to study the autoimmune background of human dilated cardiomyopathy.

Autoimmunity associated with autoantibodies against the β1-adrenergic receptor (β1-AAB) is increasingly accepted as the driver of human dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). Unfortunately, there is a lack o...

On the mark: genetically engineered immunotherapies for autoimmunity.

Current therapies for autoimmunity cause significant morbidity and mortality. Adoptive immunotherapy using genetically engineered T cells has led to durable remissions of B cell leukemias and lymphoma...

Community-based Study of Celiac Disease Autoimmunity Progression in Adults.

Celiac disease can develop at any age, but outcomes of adults with positive results from serologic tests for tissue transglutaminase antibodies (tTGA) without endoscopic determination of celiac diseas...

Amino Acid Polymorphisms in Hla Class II Differentiate Between Thyroid and Polyglandular Autoimmunity.

The structure of the human leucocyte antigen (HLA) peptide-binding clefts strongly contributes to monoglandular and polyglandular autoimmunity (AP).

Does subclinical hypothyroidism and/or thyroid autoimmunity influence the IVF/ICSI outcome? Review of the literature.

While overt hypothyroidism is a well-known risk factor for infertility, the association of subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) or thyroid autoimmunity and reproductive failure has been still not elucidat...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Process whereby the immune system reacts against the body's own tissues. Autoimmunity may produce or be caused by AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES.

Rare congenital lymphoid disorder due to mutations in certain Fas-Fas ligand pathway genes. Known causes include mutations in FAS, TNFSF6, NRAS, CASP8, and CASP10 proteins. Clinical features include LYMPHADENOPATHY; SPLENOMEGALY; and AUTOIMMUNITY.

A slow progressive disease of mink caused by the ALEUTIAN MINK DISEASE VIRUS. It is characterized by poor reproduction, weight loss, autoimmunity, hypergammaglobulinemia, increased susceptibility to bacterial infections, and death from renal failure. The disease occurs in all color types, but mink which are homozygous recessive for the Aleutian gene for light coat color are particularly susceptible.

Cancer Disease
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
