The original version of the article, "Raised Serum IL-8 Levels Are Associated with Excessive Fatigue in Female Carriers of X-Linked Chronic Granulomatous Disease in the UK" incorrectly listed the name of the fourth author as Fai W. Ng. The correct spelling of the author's name is WF Ng. 
Two decades of excellent transplant survival for chronic granulomatous disease: a supraregional immunology transplant center report.
TO THE EDITOR: Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD), an inherited immunodeficiency resulting from defects in the reduced NAD phosphate oxidase complex rendering phagocytes deficient in producing theExpand
Recent advances in understanding and treating chronic granulomatous disease
TLDR
A number of new reports describe complications of chronic granulomatous disease in adult patients, as more survivors reach adulthood, confirming that infection and inflammatory or autoimmune conditions are more common and severe than previously recognised. Expand
Health-Related Quality of Life and Emotional Health in X-Linked Carriers of Chronic Granulomatous Disease in the United Kingdom
TLDR
This is the first study to evaluate QoL of XL-CGD carriers, and demonstrates high rates of anxiety and significantly reducedQoL scores, and XL- CGD carriers should be considered as potential patients and pro-actively assessed and managed. Expand
The challenges presented by haematopoietic stem cell transplantation in children with primary immunodeficiency.
TLDR
The most radical development, still in clinical trials, is the use of mono-antibody-based conditioning, which eliminates the requirement for chemotherapy and is likely to become much more important in HSCT for non-malignant disease in the future. Expand

Clinical Manifestations of Disease in X-Linked Carriers of Chronic Granulomatous Disease
TLDR
A review of the literature about clinical manifestations of disease in X-linked carriers of Chronic Granulomatous Disease finds that female carriers of X- linked CGD may suffer from similar problems to CGD patients. Expand
The Production of Interleukin-8 is Increased in Plasma and Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells of Patients with Fatigue
TLDR
The findings demonstrate a clear association between fatigue and IL8 and the ability to identify an inflammatory marker in association with fatigue could provide a means of identifying those who may be at risk for the development of this disorder. Expand
Biological mechanisms of chronic fatigue.
Chronic fatigue is a common, poorly understood and disabling phenomenon in many diseases. We aim to provide an overview of fatigue in chronic autoimmune and inflammatory disease. Fatigue measurement,Expand
Clinical outcome in children with chronic granulomatous disease managed conservatively or with hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
TLDR
Children with CGD not undergoing transplantation have more serious infections, episodes of surgery, and admissions compared with post-HSCT children, and children undergoing transplants have better height for age. Expand
Gene Expression Profiling Provides Insight into the Pathophysiology of Chronic Granulomatous Disease1
TLDR
It is hypothesized that granuloma formation in XCGD patients reflects both increased proinflammatory activity and defective PMN apoptosis, and it is concluded that ROS contribute directly or indirectly to the resolution of the inflammatory response by influencing PMN gene transcription. Expand
Cytometric bead array: a multiplexed assay platform with applications in various areas of biology.
TLDR
The cytometric bead array (CBA) system enables simultaneous measurement of multiple analytes in sample volumes too small for traditional immunoassays and provides the ability to quantify multiple proteins within a given sample, with precision and consistency. Expand
