Platelets are the major source of plasma-soluble CD40L (sCD40L), an important inflammatory mediator. This study explored the impact of platelet-derived sCD40L on Behçet disease (BD), an autoinflammatory vasculitis. We also searched for influences by platelet matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) -2 and MMP-9, implicated in several inflammatory diseases, on CD40L(More)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Our study has investigated the presence of the mutation V617F in the JAK2 gene in patients diagnosed with chronic myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). Furthermore, we determined if JAK2 (V617F) allelic burden associates with a specific clinical phenotype and if its quantification can be used as a marker to predict outcome and(More)
Multiple myeloma (MM) is a malignant monoclonal gammopathy that leads to an altered immune state, which together with other basic treatments needed to control it, causes greater susceptibility to infections. Gram positive infections are more frequent in these patients, but we know that the most common are those produced by Gram negative bacteria affecting(More)
