The basic mechanisms of specific immune response in children to pathogens with characteristics of cells involved in the process were described. The characteristics of commonly used stimulators (thymus-derived peptides, bacterial lysates and ribosoms, glukans) and the mechanisms of action, target cells were shown. In general remarks the limitations of(More)
Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is a primary immunodeficiency of humoral immunity with heterogeneous clinical features. Diagnosis of CVID is based on hypogammaglobulinaemia, low production of specific antibodies, and disorders of cellular immunity. The standard therapy includes replacement of specific antibodies with human immunoglobulin,(More)
The primary immunodeficiency, mainly humoral immunity, secondary immunodeficiency and autoimmune diseases are the indications for immunoglobulins substitution. The prolonged substitution in primary immunodeficiency includes regular intravenous infusion of immunoglobulins in 0.4-0.6 g/kg of body weight every 21-28 days. The purpose of such substitution is(More)
Seven boys with diagnosis of X-linked agammaglobulinemia on regular substitution of immunoglobulins were included into study. The patients showed episodes of infections but the clinical course was mild with good response to antibiotics. All patients developed, with time, the chronic sinusitis with proliferation of mucous membrane, two patients showed(More)
INTRODUCTION Selected IgA deficiency (IgAD) and common variable immune deficiency (CVID) are humoral immunity deficiencies frequent in children. In both these types of immunodeficiency, autoimmune diseases are present in 20-30% of patients, but the disease profiles are different between adults and children. Autoimmune diseases of the gastrointestinal tract(More)
