[B-cell depletion in the therapy of mulitple sclerosis: ofatumumab is a new player]

PUKOLI Dániel, VÉCSEI László

[Research results in recent years have demonstrated that B-lymphocytes play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS). The increased understanding of the disease process has resulted in the development of B cell-targeting antibodies as potential drugs for both relapsing and progressive forms of MS. Therefore, B-cell depletion therapies are becoming more prominent and determining in reducing disease progression. The first B-cell depleting anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody was... tovább »

REM sleep, REM parasomnias, REM sleep behaviour disorder

SZÛCS Anna , MUTTI Carlotta, PAPP Anikó, HALÁSZ Péter, PARRINO Liborio

We review the literature on REM parasomnias, and their the underlying mechanisms. Several REM parasomnias are consistent with sleep dissociations, where certain elements of the REM sleep pattern emerge in an inadequate time (sleep paralysis, hypnagogic hallucinations and cataplexy) or are absent/partial in their normal REM sleep time (REM sleep without atonia, underlying REM sleep behavior disorder). The rest of REM parasomnias (sleep related painful erection, catathrenia) may have other... tovább »

BAYAR Duran Muhammet , ŞIŞMAN Büşra Aysel , KORAL Gizem , ÇIRAK Selen , TÜZÜN Erdem , GÜNAYDIN Sefer , BAŞTAN Birgül

Prevalence of acute ische­mic stroke (AIS) is increased in patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). A proposed hypothesis is increased virus-induced propensity to hypercoagulation resulting in arterial thrombosis. Our aim was to provide evidence regarding the involvement of neutrophil extracellular trap (NET) formation (NETosis) in COVID-19 related AIS. Twenty-six consecutively enrolled COVID-19+ pneumonia patients with AIS, 32 COVID-19+ pneumonia patients without AIS and 24 AIS... tovább »

[History of the development of wound care]

SZABÓNÉ Révész Erzsébet

[The onset of wound care dates back thousands of years. To make the wet wound treatment used today so effective can be a bumpy road. Knowledge of local processes required for wound care, mapping of the effectiveness of materials needed for wound care, treatment of bleeding suppression and traumatic shock caused by injury, destruction of pathogens entering the wound, ensuring optimal hygiene during wound care, treatment of the underlying disease in chronic wounds, all contributed to our ability... tovább »

[Novelties in the diagnosis and treatment of X-linked hypophosphatemia]

RUESZ György Sándor, MIKES Bálint, CSIZEK Zsófia, HORVÁTH Orsolya

[X-linked hypophosphataemia (XLH) is the most common inherited cause of phosphate wasting. Its pathogenesis is complex, determined by the dysregulation of phosphate homeostasis and bone metabolism. We review herein the pathophysiology of XLH leading to multiple manifestations, stages of diagnosis and the treatment strategies. XLH is now in the scientific interest of pediatric nephrology, because a new treatment modality, burosumab became available in Hungary. Burosumab is a monoclonal... tovább »
