We previously reported that autoantibodies (autoAbs) to the main epitope on CD69 reacted to its homologous amino acid sequence in low-density-lipoprotein-receptor-related protein 2 (LPR2), a multiligand receptor for protein reabsorption. In this study, we have investigated the prevalence, autoepitope distribution, and clinical significance of the autoAbs to(More)
This report describes a rare case of recurrent bilateral focal myositis and its successful treatment via methotrexate. A 38-year-old man presented myalgia of the right gastrocnemius in May 2005. Magnetic resonance imaging showed very high signal intensity in the right gastrocnemius on short-tau inversion recovery images. A muscle biopsy revealed(More)
In addition we revealed that the levels of IgG-abs to HSV were being increased in proportion to a severity of AD. Maximal increased level of IgG-abs to HSV was in children with severe AD (Me ¼ 2.93 units of OD (0.14–3.15); P , 0.05). Conclusions: The detection of the elevated levels of the autoantibodies, especially against the background of herpetic(More)
