Can silicone breast implants trigger autoimmune diseases? Since the introduction of silicone breast implants in 1962 breast augmentation is the most common cosmetic surgery. But until today there were a lot of studies made which deal with the impairment of health and higher rates of several autoimmune diseases after silicone implants insertion. The condition is…Details

Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection promotes uterine and cervical cancers. In 2010, HPV vaccines were introduced worldwide. Since then case series of suspected adverse effects after HPV vaccination have been reported from several countries and the symptoms described by independent researchers are similar. In this study, autoantibodies against diverse Gprotein coupled receptors in the serum of…Details

Read the abstract of this interesting article: Anti-angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1R) antibodies have been associated with allograft rejection. We hypothesized that circulating AT1R antibodies might identify kidney transplant recipients at increased risk of allograft rejection and loss who are not identified by the HLA system. We prospectively enrolled 1845 kidney transplant recipients from…Details
New publication in Frontiers in Bioscience about: Anti-ß1-Adrenoreceptor auto-Antibodies in elderly heart failure patients.
Abstract of the article: An autoimmune reaction directed against the cardiac b1-adrenergic receptor (beta1-ADR) leading to the generation of autoantibodies (AA) against this G-coupled receptor has been described in patients with heart failure (HF). Agonist-like beta1-ADR-AA are associated with morbidity in HF patients and even predict mortality. Standardised and valid diagnostic tools to detect beta…Details
