Post-cardiac injury syndrome and an increased humoral immune response against the major contractile proteins (actin and myosin).
TLDR
A significant correlation between the PCIS clinical classification and auto-antibodies raised against heart contractile proteins is shown and the surgical group showed a significantly higher humoral immune response than the AMI group when analyzed for AHA and anti-contractile protein antibodies.
Macro CK type 1 as a marker for autoimmunity in coronary heart disease.
In a group of 3000 hospital patients the prevalence of immunoglobulin bound creatine kinase (macro CK type 1) was 4.3%. The relative frequency was greater in the older age categories. The highest
Postoperative immunological response against contractile proteins after coronary bypass surgery.
TLDR
The amount of enzymes released during coronary bypass surgery seems to be a good indicator of the extent of myocardial damage during operation but it does not determine either the incidence of post-cardiac injury syndrome or the postoperative immunological response against the main contractile proteins actin and myosin.
Humoral immune response in post-cardiac injury syndrome
TLDR
Analysis of humoral immune response against heart tissue and the major contractile proteins in 129 patients who underwent cardiac surgery and 80 patients with acute myocardial infarction found immune response was significantly more important after CS than after AMI.
Measurement of autoimmune response against collagen types I, III, and IV by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and its application in infective endocarditis.
TLDR
Significantly increased humoral immune response against collagen types I and III (P less than 0.001) could be demonstrated during the first month of infective endocarditis and only borderline increases, however constant, of autoimmune response against basement-membrane collagen (ACA IV) were noticed during 90 days of follow-up.
Performance Evaluation of the Siemens SARS-CoV-2 Total Antibody and IgG Antibody Test
TLDR
This study shows acceptable performance for both the Siemens COv2T and COV2G test, although seroconversion occurs earlier with the COV1T test than with theCOV2T test.
