Mefv Gene Mutations In Familial Mediterranean Fever Phenotype Ii Patients With Renal Amyloidosis In Childhood: A Retrospective Clinicopathological And Molecular Study
(Oxford Univ Press, 2002)
Background. Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by recurring attacks of fever and serositis. The definition of the mutated gene has allowed molecular diagnosis of the disease. ...
Allelic Variants in Genes Associated with Hereditary Periodic Fever Syndromes as Susceptibility Factors for Reactive Systemic AA Amyloidosis
(Nature Publishing Group, 2004)
We investigated the hypothesis that low-penetrance mutations in genes (TNFRSF1A, MEFV and NALP3/CIAS1) associated with hereditary periodic fever syndromes (HPFs) might be risk factors for AA amyloidosis among patients with ...
Genetic Linkage Study Of Familial Mediterranean Fever (Fmf) To 16P13.3 And Evidence For Genetic Heterogeneity In The Turkish Population
(British Med Journal Publ Group, 1997)
Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an autosomal recessive condition that is almost entirely restricted to the non-Askhenazi Jews, Arabs, Armenians, and Turks. Genetic linkage study of a large group of non-Turkish families ...
Kaposi Sarcoma In A Paediatric Renal Transplant Recipient
(Oxford Univ Press United Kingdom, 1996)
Decreased Prevalence Of Atopy In Paediatric Patients With Familial Mediterranean Fever
(B M J Publishing Group, 2004)
Background: A number of inflammatory diseases, including familial Mediterranean fever (FMF), have been shown to be driven by a strongly dominated Th1 response, whereas the pathogenesis of atopic diseases is associated with ...
Tumour Necrosis Factor Alpha G -> A-238 And G -> A-308 Polymorphisms In Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
(Oxford Univ Press, 2002)
Objectives. To study G-->A -238 and G-->A -308 polymorphisms in the promoter region of the tumour necrosis factor (TNF) alpha gene in patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). We analysed whether there were any ...
Mutations In The Chloride-Bicarbonate Exchanger Gene Ae1 Cause Autosomal Dominant But Not Autosomal Recessive Distal Renal Tubular Acidosis
(Natl Acad Sciences, 1998)
Primary distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA) is characterized by reduced ability to acidify urine, variable hyperchloremic hypokalemic metabolic acidosis, nephrocalcinosis, and nephrolithiasis. Kindreds showing either ...
A Phenocopy of Caii Deficiency: A Novel Genetic Explanation for Inherited Infantile Osteopetrosis with Distal Renal Tubular Acidosis
(British Med Journal Publ Group, 2003)
The rare bone thickening disease osteopetrosis occurs in various forms, one of which is accompanied by renal tubular acidosis (RTA), and is known as Guibaud-Vainsel of this autosomal recessive syndrome comprise oncreased ...
The Significance Of Antineutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibody In Microscopic Polyangitis And Classic Polyarteritis Nodosa
(British Med Journal Publ Group, 2001)
Aims-To describe the distribution and features of classic polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) and microscopic polyarteritis (MPA) and the importance of antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) in childhood PAN. Methods-Classic ...
Novel Atp6V1B1 And Atp6V0A4 Mutations In Autosomal Recessive Distal Renal Tubular Acidosis With New Evidence For Hearing Loss
(Bmj Publishing Group, 2002)
Autosomal recessive distal renal tubular acidosis (rdRTA) is characterised by severe hyperchloraemic metabolic acidosis in childhood, hypokolaemia, decreased urinary calcium solubility, and impaired bone physiology and ...
Nutritional Assessment Of Children On Haemodialysis: Value Of Igf-I, Tnf-Alpha And Il-1 Beta
(Oxford Univ Press, 1998)
Background. Protein-energy malnutrition (PEM) is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in haemodialysis (HD) patients. Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) has proved to be a sensitive marker of malnutrition, ...

(B M J Publishing Group, 2005)
Mefv Mutations In Systemic Jia
(BioMed Central, 2008)
Background: Systemic form of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is regarded as an autoinflammatory disease. Certain genetic polymorphisms in genes coding inflammatory proteins have been associated with the disease. On the ...
