Secondary antibody deficiency and immunoglobulin replacement

1 Introduction Antibody deficiencies, or hypogammaglobulinemia (HG), are characterized by decrease in the absolute number or function of circulating antibodies (immunoglobulins (Ig)), which predispose patients to severe and recurrent infections. Primary antibody deficiencies, such as X-linked agammaglobulinemia and common variable immunodeficiency (CVID), are due to intrinsic genetic mutations commonly resulting in defects of B-cell development or function.[ 1 ] Patients with untreated primary antibody deficiencies experience significant morbidity and

False-negative coagulation factor activity results due to the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies in a case of autoimmune hemolytic anemia

Introduction The two major autoimmune diseases demonstrating activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) prolongation and normal prothrombin time (PT) on coagulation screening are antiphospholipid (aPL) antibody syndrome (APS) and acquired hemophilia. APTT cross-mixing test demonstrates an inhibitory pattern in both diseases, and the diagnoses are made according to clinical findings and the measurement of aPL antibodies or coagulation factor activities. Several cases of coexistent APS and acquired hemophilia have been reported; however, the mechanisms

Evaluation of long-term antibody response and cross-serotype reaction in ducks immunised with recombinant Riemerella anatipestifer outer membrane protein A and CpG ODN

them ( 4 , 5 , 27 ). Some OmpA vaccines against bacterial infections have been tested, and although immunisation with the purified recombinant protein (rOmpA) induced production of antibodies in ducks ( 3 , 7 ), administration of the preparations failed to effectively prevent morbidity. Studies indicated that the efficacy of vaccines containing protein-based antigens such as rOmpA could be significantly enhanced by using CpG oligodeoxynucleotides (ODNs) as the adjuvant. CpG ODNs are able to induce more balanced and effective immune responses that enhance the
