1. The CD4(+) regulatory T-cells is decreased in adults with latent autoimmune diabetes.
Match Strength: 8.945
The latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) is a subgroup of type 1 diabetes, which procession of autoimmune destruction of beta-cells was slower than classic type 1 diabetes. To investigate the pathogenesis of LADA, we examined the lymphocyte subsets including the CD4(+)CD25(+) T-cells in 60 LADA patients and 30 patients of type 2 diabetes and 30 healthy individuals by FACS. And we compared the expression of FOXP3 mRNA in CD4(+) T-cell between 10 patients of LADA and 10 matched healthy individuals by real time PCR. The percent of CD4(+)CD25(+) T-cells were higher (11.89+/-4.96% versus 8 ... Read More »

2. Altered susceptibility to EAE in congenic NOD mice: Altered processing of the encephalitogenic MOG35-55 peptide by NOR/LtJ mice.
Match Strength: 7.696
NOD mice (H-2 g7) naturally develop autoimmune diabetes, while the congenic NOR/LtJ mice (H-2 g7) are resistant. To determine if defective immune regulation renders NOD susceptible to autoimmune disease, we compared MOG35-55-induced EAE in NOD mice to that of NOR/LtJ. In two of three immunization protocols, the NOR/LtJ mice developed significantly reduced indices and severity of clinical disease, in spite of an exaggerated autoimmune response to MOG35-55. Characterization of the responding T cell repertoires revealed that V beta 8+ Th cells directed toward the MOG42-55 core epitope were ... Read More »

3. Idiopathic central diabetes insipidus in children and young adults is commonly associated with vasopressin-cell antibodies and markers of autoimmunity.
Match Strength: 6.172
OBJECTIVES: Autoimmune targeting of hypothalamic-neurohypophyseal structures in children and young adults with posterior pituitary and anterior pituitary dysfunction, as well as pituitary stalk involvement, are not yet completely understood. DESIGN: We aimed to (1) evaluate the presence of circulating vasopressin-cell autoantibodies (AVPc-Abs) in young patients with central diabetes insipidus (CDI), (2) detect organ-specific autoantibodies as markers of autoimmunity, and (3) define the relationship between immune markers and neuroimaging findings. PATIENTS: Twenty patients were evaluated at a ... Read More »

4. NFkappaB and its inhibitor IkappaB in relation to type 2 diabetes and its microvascular and atherosclerotic complications.
Match Strength: 5.972
Nuclear factor kappa B (NFkappaB) is an important transcription factor that together with its inhibitor (IkappaB) participates in the activation of genes involved in immune responses. We examined the CA repeat polymorphism of the NFKB1 gene (encoding for NFkappaB) and A/G point variation in the 3'UTR region of the nuclear factor kappa B inhibitor alpha (NFKBIA) gene (encoding for IkappaB) in Czech and German patients with type 2 diabetes. The sample consisted of 211 patients, both with and without kidney complications, and 159 controls. Additionally, 152 patients with systemic lupus ... Read More »

5. Early epitope- and isotype-specific humoral immune responses to GAD65 in young children with genetic susceptibility to type 1 diabetes.
Match Strength: 4.713
OBJECTIVE: The pattern of the humoral immunity to disease-associated autoantigens may reflect the severity of the autoimmune disease process. The purpose of this study was to delineate the maturation of the humoral immunity to one of the main autoantigens in type 1 diabetes (T1D), glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD65). DESIGN AND METHODS: Serum samples were obtained for the detection of epitope- and isotype-specific antibodies sequentially with short intervals from 36 young children with HLA-conferred genetic susceptibility to T1D starting from the first appearance of GAD65Ab. During prospective ... Read More »

6. Iodine status, thyroid function, thyroid volume and thyroid autoimmunity in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus in an iodine-replete area.
Match Strength: 4.603
OBJECTIVE: To analyze the prevalence and clinical significance of thyroid autoimmunity, thyroid volume and iodine status in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus compared with age and sex matched healthy controls, in an iodine-deficiency improved area. METHOD: Fifty-eight patients with type 1 DM, 30 female and 28 male, who attended the pediatric endocrinology clinic of Karadeniz Technical University Hospital were included into the study. They were compared with 58 healthy children matched for sex and age. Routine thyroid function parameters, thyroid autoantibodies (TPOAb, TGAb and TRAb) and ... Read More »
