    Purpose: The progress in identifying immunological mechanisms in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) has partly been hampered by the fact that the disease is heterogeneous. Here we have investigated complement and Fc receptors, as part of the inflammatory process, in two subgroups of JIA....

    The main aim of this study is to investigate the pharmacokinetics of infliximab and Fcγ receptor (FcγR) polymorphism in two patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who were well controlled by low-dose infliximab. A 57-year-old woman (Patient 1) and a 67-year-old woman (Patient 2) had...

    Autoantibodies of the IgG class and the immune complexes they form are central players in the pathology of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Receptors for the Fc part of IgG, FcγR constitute one of the main effector mechanisms through which IgG immune complexes exert their action. The different...

    Objectives: Fc receptors (FcR) interacting with immune complexes (ICs) is a central event in the immune pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Here we asked if a specific FcR is linked to RA pathogenesis and if FcR activities relate to disease and treatment outcome in early RA. Material and...

    Introduction: Spebrutinib (CC-292) is an orally administered, covalent, small-molecule inhibitor of Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK), part of the B-cell and Fc receptor signaling pathways. This study evaluated spebrutinib pharmacology and mechanism of action over a 4-week treatment period in...

  • FcγRII and multi-system autoimmune disease. van de Velde, NicholasC.; Mottram, Patricia L.; Hogarth, P. Mark // Springer Seminars in Immunopathology;Dec2006, Vol. 28 Issue 4, p329 

    The FcR are a crucial link in the immune response between humoral and cellular immunity and cell-based effector systems, mediating a wide variety of physiological and biochemical responses. The FcR for IgG (FcγR) and in particular the most widely expressed of these, FcγRII, are important...

  • Variation at FCGR2A and Functionally Related Genes Is Associated with the Response to Anti-TNF Therapy in Rheumatoid Arthritis. Avila-Pedretti, Gabriela; Tornero, Jesús; Fernández-Nebro, Antonio; Blanco, Francisco; González-Alvaro, Isidoro; Cañete, Juan D.; Maymó, Joan; Alperiz, Mercedes; Fernández-Gutiérrez, Benjamín; Olivé, Alex; Corominas, Héctor; Erra, Alba; Aterido, Adrià; López Lasanta, María; Tortosa, Raül; Julià, Antonio; Marsal, Sara // PLoS ONE;Apr2015, Vol. 10 Issue 4, p1 

    Objective: Anti-TNF therapies have been highly efficacious in the management of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), but 25–30% of patients do not show a significant clinical response. There is increasing evidence that genetic variation at the Fc receptor FCGR2A is associated with the response to...

    We examined Fc receptor expression and function in normal and leukemic human immature B cells. Fc receptor expression increased with normal B cell maturation: CD32[sup +] cells composed 8.1%±1.2% (mean±s.d.) of the least mature (CD34[sup +]CD10[sup +]), 19.2% q 5.7% of intermediate...
