Regulatory T cells (Treg) are key players in the maintenance of peripheral tolerance. As a result of suppressive effects on CD4+ and CD8+ effector T cells, Treg control the adaptive immune system and prevent autoimmunity. In addition, they inhibit B lymphocytes, dendritic cells, and monocytes/macrophages. It is interesting that several recent papers show(More)

Hypercobalaminemia (high serum vitamin B12 levels) is a frequent and underestimated anomaly. Clinically, it can be paradoxically accompanied by signs of deficiency, reflecting a functional deficiency linked to qualitative abnormalities, which are related to defects in tissue uptake and action of vitamin B12. The aetiological profile of high serum cobalamin(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the brain metabolite patterns in patients with fibromyalgia (FM) and somatization disorder (STD) compared with healthy controls through spectroscopy techniques and correlate these patterns with psychological variables. METHOD Design. Controlled, cross-sectional study. Sample. Patients were recruited from primary care in Zaragoza,(More)

Pernicious anemia (also known as Biermer's disease) is an autoimmune atrophic gastritis, predominantly of the fundus, and is responsible for a deficiency in vitamin B12 (cobalamin) due to its malabsorption. Its prevalence is 0.1% in the general population and 1.9% in subjects over the age of 60 years. Pernicious anemia represents 20%-50% of the causes of(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the prevalence of late-onset neutropenia and its complications in patients treated with rituximab (RTX) for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and other autoimmune diseases (AIDs) in a prospective registry. METHODS The AutoImmunity and Rituximab registry is an independent 7-year prospective registry promoted by the French Society of(More)
BACKGROUND Little data is currently available in the literature on neutropenia and agranulocytosis in the elderly, and, to our knowledge, idiosyncratic drug-induced agranulocytosis is particularly poorly covered, or not at all. OBJECTIVE We herein describe the clinical picture and outcome of patients aged ≥75 years with established idiosyncratic(More)
Nowadays, telemonitoring systems are increasingly used, due to the increasing of life expectancy and chronic diseases. Indeed, chronic diseases and disabilities due to advancing age are responsible for health care costs increasingly growing. Telemonitoring systems provide a low cost way to monitor patients and their needs in the comfort of their own homes.(More)
