A Chronic Precipitant for Acute Intermittent Porphyria

Nick Li

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 15, 2018

Acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) is a rare inherited disorder of heme metabolism caused by a heterozygous, loss-of-function mutation affecting the enzyme porphobilinogen deaminase (PBGD). The remaining enzymatic activity is sufficient to avoid accumulation of intermediate metabolites until hepatic heme production is further activated, i.e. by a precipitant....

A Case of SLE that Healed Completely after Ten Intradermal Injections with a Non-Specific Antigen Preparation

Kimihiko Okazaki

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 13, 2018

According to the traditional concept of the contemporary Immunology, neither autoimmune diseases nor allergic diseases can be cured completely. Nevertheless, a fortunate coincidence led the author to discover a novel concept that eliminations of the causes of these diseases are possible. In other words, combinations of pathogenic antibodies with responsible cells, namely, cytolytic T lymphocytes in cases of autoimmune diseases and mast cells in cases of allergic diseases, can be decomposed by replacing the pathogenic antibodies with non-specific antibodies....

Angel San Miguel-RodrIguez, Alicia Armentia, Sara MartIn-Armentia, Blanca MartIn-Armentia, MÂȘ Carmen Lozano Estevan and Irene Iglesias Peinado

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: August 08, 2018

Allergic drug reactions (ADR) are the third most common reason for consultation in allergy services. Epidemiological data are imprecise. Globally, ADR affect 10-20% of hospitalized patients and up to 7% of outpatients. However, this might be an underestimate due to underreporting, or an overestimate due to unexplained reactions often being classified as "allergic". ...
