BACKGROUND Although the involvement of T cells in delayed reactions to drugs has been studied, little is known about the interaction between the drug and the antigen-presenting cells. Dendritic cells (DCs) are professional antigen-presenting cells essential for initiating T-cell responses. Their ability is regulated in a process known as maturation, by(More)
Heterotrimers composed of B cell CLL/lymphoma 10 (BCL10), mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma translocation protein 1 (MALT1), and caspase recruitment domain-containing (CARD) family adaptors play a role in NF-κB activation and have been shown to be involved in both the innate and the adaptive arms of immunity in murine models. Moreover, individuals(More)
Allergy to beta-lactam antibiotics is the most frequent cause of drug-induced immunological reactions, although the prevalence is not exactly known. IgE- and T-cell-dependent responses are the main mechanisms involved, although other immunological mechanisms can also participate, especially in haematological abnormalities, such as immune haemolytic anaemia(More)
Intoxication from vitamin D supplements has been rarely reported but, nowadays, it occurs more frequently. 3-epi-25-OH-D(3) is highly prevalent in adults and it is considered of biological relevance. We report a case of vitamin D toxicity with hypercalcemia, acute renal failure and hypervitaminosis A after consuming an over-the-counter vitamin D supplement.(More)
Reported synonymous substitutions are generally non-pathogenic, and rare pathogenic synonymous variants may be disregarded unless there is a high index of suspicion. In a case of IL7 receptor deficiency severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), the relevance of a non-reported synonymous variant was only suspected through the use of additional in silico(More)
BACKGROUND Survival of children with combined immunodeficiency is strongly related to patient's age and clinical situation at the time of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). We describe the clinical features before HSCT or enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) in a cohort of children treated in a National Reference Unit. METHODS A retrospective(More)
