Necrotizing autoimmune myopathy (NAM) is a group of acquired myopathies characterized by prominent myofiber necrosis with little or no muscle inflammation. Recently, researchers identified autoantibodies (aAb) against 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase (HMGCR) in patients with NAM, especially in statin-exposed patients. Here we report what is(More)
Autoimmune diseases (AIDs) as a whole represent a major health concern and remain a medical and scientific challenge. Some of them, such as multiple sclerosis or type 1 diabetes, have been actively investigated for many decades. Autoimmune myopathies (AIMs), also referred to as idiopathic inflammatory myopathies or myositis, represent a group of very severe(More)
INTRODUCTION Necrotizing autoimmune myopathies (NAM) have recently been defined as a distinct group of severe acquired myopathies, characterized by prominent myofiber necrosis without significant muscle inflammation. Because of the lack of appropriate biomarkers, these diseases have been long misdiagnosed as atypical forms of myositis. NAM may be associated(More)

BACKGROUND Chronic heart failure (CHF) induces endothelial dysfunction in part because of decreased nitric oxide (NO(·)) production, but the direct link between endothelial dysfunction and aggravation of CHF is not directly established. We previously reported that increased NO production via inhibition of protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) is(More)
Cancer can occur in patients with inflammatory myopathies. This association is mainly observed in dermatomyositis, and myositis-specific antibodies have allowed us to delineate patients at an increased risk. Malignancy is also reported in patients with necrotizing autoimmune myopathies, but the risk remains elusive. Anti-signal recognition particle or(More)
Immune-mediated necrotizing myopathy (IMNM) is a newly identified subgroup of idiopathic inflammatory myopathies. It is defined as a rare and severe disease, with symmetrical and proximal muscle weakness and a characteristic histology. An autoimmune aspect of IMNM is suggested by its association with autoantibodies directed against signal recognition(More)
BACKGROUND Peanut allergy is one of the most severe food allergies in children. The diagnostic gold standard is the oral food challenge (OFC). However, OFC has inherent risks and is time consuming. The measurement of specific immunoglobulin E (sIgE) to peanut components in blood detects peanut sensitization, but the decision point predicting allergy is(More)
