Paraproteinemic variety of pure red cell aplasia: immunological studies in 1 patient

, : Paraproteinemic variety of pure red cell aplasia: immunological studies in 1 patient. Acta Haematologica 60(4): 227-232

A case of adult pure red cell aplasia (PRCA) with a serum IgG inhibitor to erythropoiesis and an IgG lambda M component is presented. The study of lymphocyte populations revealed a slight but definite decrease of E and EA rosettes, with dissociation between E rosettes and PHA blastic transformation of blood lymphocytes and increase of membrane IgM-bearing lymphocytes. The relationship between PRCA and paraproteinemia is discussed: it is suggested that the serum M component may derive from an immunological unbalance between T and B lymphocytes. Since a survey of the literature reveals 5 similar cases, it is suggested that paraproteinemia may be the hallmark of a particular variety of chronic PRCA 'type 1'.

Induction of autophagy in response to starvation is a highly conserved ability of eukaryotic cells, indicating a crucial and ancient role of this process in adapting to nutrient conditions. The target of rapamycin (TOR) pathway is major conduit fo...

Background: Many mammals have four different types of lingual papilla, namely filiform, fungiform, circumvallate, and foliate papillae, on the dorsal or lateral surface of the tongue. However, details of the morphogenesis of these lingual papillae...
