Severe gastrointestinal dysmotility is a newly recognized paraneoplastic syndrome that occurs with small-cell lung carcinoma. Thirty-four patients with small-cell carcinoma, of whom 5 had chronic intestinal pseudoobstruction and 29 had no digestive symptoms, were studied serologically. Four of the 5 patients with gut dysmotility had immunoglobulin G antibodies reactive with neurons of the myenteric and submucosal plexuses of jejunum and stomach in an indirect immunofluorescence assay… Expand
Paraneoplastic dysmotility: loss of interstitial cells of Cajal.
TLDR
The histopathology of this case suggests that interstitial cells of Cajal may be a target in the pathogenesis of paraneoplastic motility disorders. Expand
Antimyenteric neuronal antibodies in scleroderma.
TLDR
Although the neuronal antigen has not yet been identified, the presence of myenteric neuronal antibodies in patients with GI dysmotility and scleroderma suggests a neuropathic process. Expand
Acquired myopathic intestinal pseudo-obstruction may be due to autoimmune enteric leiomyositis
TLDR
The ability of enteric myocytes to take part in an inflammatory response and to change their phenotype, allowing them to act as antigen-presenting cells and to activate T cells is demonstrated. Expand
Anti-Myenteric Neuronal Antibodies in Patients with Achalasia (A Prospective Study)
TLDR
Neuronal antibodies in achalasia provide an attractive hypothesist to explain this diffuse, possibly immune-based disorder. Expand
Anti-myenteric neuronal antibodies in patients with achalasia: A prospective study
TLDR
Neuronal antibodies in achalasia provide an attractive hypothesist to explain this diffuse, possibly immune-based disorder. Expand
A novel approach to paraneoplastic intestinal pseudo-obstruction
TLDR
The use of rituximab and cyclophosphamide should be considered in patients with CIPO, especially if it can avoid complicated surgical procedures, and significant evidence that paraneoplastic neurologic syndromes are associated with antibodies directed against certain nerve antigens. Expand
Autoimmune gastrointestinal dysmotility treated successfully with pyridostigmine.
TLDR
Autoimmune serology is a valuable adjunct to the diagnosis and guide to management of patients with AGID and the favorable response to acetylcholinesterase inhibitors suggests an immunopharmacologic rather than an inflammatory cytotoxic pathology. Expand
Autoaggressive inflammation of the myenteric plexus resulting in intestinal pseudoobstruction.
TLDR
Tests showed that an antitumor inflammatory response was the cause of the bowel disease, the first report of a tumor from the neuroblastoma group that caused paraneoplastic intestinal pseudoobstruction. Expand
Serologic profiles aiding the diagnosis of autoimmune gastrointestinal dysmotility.
TLDR
Autoimmune serology aids the diagnosis of autoimmune gastrointestinal dysmotility, both paraneoplastic and idiopathic, and might guide management. Expand
A Role for Autoantibodies in Some Cases of Acquired Non-Paraneoplastic Gut Dysmotility
TLDR
Anti-neuronal antibodies are found in some patients with a condition of severe acquired gut dysmotility of previously unknown aetiology, and future studies may demonstrate an autoimmune role for such antibodies. Expand

Paraneoplastic visceral neuropathy as a cause of severe gastrointestinal motor dysfunction.
TLDR
It is concluded that lung cancer may be complicated by severe gastrointestinal motor dysfunction resulting from visceral neuropathy of the myenteric plexus, a paraneoplastic effect of the cancer. Expand
Paraneoplastic myasthenic syndrome IgG inhibits 45Ca2+ flux in a human small cell carcinoma line
TLDR
It is demonstrated that K+-induced 45Ca2+ flux in a cultured human SCC line is significantly reduced by LEMS IgG, suggesting that in SCC-LEMS an autoantibody to tumour Ca2+-channel determinants is triggered; its cross-reaction with similar determinants at the motor nerve terminal could lead to the remote neurological syndrome.

Intestinal pseudo-obstruction as the presenting manifestation of small-cell carcinoma of the lung. A paraneoplastic neuropathy of the gastrointestinal tract.
TLDR
A gastrointestinal neuropathy causing intestinal pseudo-obstruction may be the presenting manifestation of a paraneoplastic syndrome associated with small-cell carcinoma. Expand
Autoimmunity in the Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome.
TLDR
The data clearly justify consideration of LES without tumor as an organ-specific autoimmune disease and if LES with tumor does prove to have an autoimmune basis, the mechanism may involve an antigen common to cholinergic neurons and oat cell carcinoma, both of which are neuroectoderm derivatives. Expand
Subacute sensory neuronopathy associated with small cell lung carcinoma: diagnosis aided by autoimmune serology.
TLDR
In two patients with subacute sensory neuronopathy associated with small cell carcinoma of the lung, the diagnosis of the paraneoplastic syndrome was aided by the finding, in highly diluted serum, of unusual and distinctive antinuclear antibodies with reactivity restricted to neuronal nuclei. Expand
Autoantibodies in paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration bind to cytoplasmic antigens of Purkinje cells in humans, rats and mice and are of multiple immunoglobulin classes
TLDR
Rodent cerebellar tissue was found to be a useful substitute for human tissue in clinical testing for Purkinje cell antibodies, and has the advantage of being readily available in highly viable state. Expand
[Paralysis of digestive tract with lesions of myenteric plexuses. A new paraneoplastic syndrome (author's transl)].
TLDR
The clinical course, the pathological pictures of the alimentary tract and spinal roots and the association with a carcinoma suggest that the patient in this case may represent a paraneoplastic syndrome. Expand
Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction: diagnosis and treatment.
TLDR
Management of chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction is difficult because of the lack of efficacious medications, extension of the disease to other regions, and complications of central parenteral nutrition. Expand
AUTOIMMUNE AETIOLOGY FOR MYASTHENIC (EATON-LAMBERT) SYNDROME
TLDR
Results indicate that an IgG autoantibody, binding to nerve terminal determinants, may be responsible for the disorder of neuromuscular transmission in the myasthenic syndrome, and that immunosuppressive drugs may be useful in treating the nonneoplastic form of the disease. Expand

TLDR
Clinical-serological correlations obtained in the recent screening for two distinct antibody specificities in a clinical laboratory indicate that simple indirect immunofluorescence testing2 is a valuable aid in establishing the paraneoplastic nature of certain neurological disorders. Expand
