Autoimmune diseases are characterized by the irregular functioning of the immune system that leads to the loss of tolerance to self-antigens. The underlying nature of autoimmune diseases has led to speculation that the risk of malignancy might be higher or lower in patients with such diseases.
Vimentin is a protein of intermediate filament family, which is expressed in all mesenchymal cells. Vimentin plays a key role in the physiology of the cell, cellular interactions and the functioning of the immune system.
Originally, neutrophil granulocytes were described to phagocytose and kill bacteria. In 2004, a second mechanism in which neutrophils trap bacteria with extracellular DNA (NETs) was described by Brinkmann et al.
The pro-inflammatory cytokine interleukin(IL)-17 and IL-17-producing cells are important players in the pathogenesis of many autoimmune/inflammatory diseases. More recently, they have been associated with liver diseases. This review first describes the general knowledge on IL-17 and IL-17 producing cells.
Minocycline is a semi-synthetic antimicrobial which, in addition to its role in infectious disease, has garnered roles in the management of acne vulgaris, acne rosacea, and a variety of novel clinical applications (1). In the context of a potentially expanding population on protracted treatment courses, immune-mediated adverse effects, although rare, remain important to recognize.
