The induction of immune dysregulation by HIV may result in hypergammaglobulinemia, suggesting an abnormal polyclonal B-cell activation and immune complex glomerulonephritis in these patients.
Vascular etiology alone is probably not sufficient to explain the lack of immune complex deposition in glomeruli with periglomerular fibrosis.
The removal of immune complexes lessens the damage to blood vessels and organs triggered by immune complex deposition.
There are, of course, several classes of Fc receptors, and as we know from studies of animal knockout models, FcR3 is the dominant receptor that mediates joint inflammation during immune complex arthritis.
anti-ssDNA antibodies), and immune complex formation and deposition in renal glomeruli.
Two potential sources of the differences in fold improvement provided by immunoRCA are the affinity of the antibody pairs in the immune complex and the possibility that the immune complex formed by some antibody pairs may be sensitive to the RCA reaction buffer conditions.
In the kidney, these vascular lesions have been classified as (1) uncomplicated vascular immune complex deposits and (2) noninflammatory necrotizing microangiopathy, also referred to as lupus microangiopathy.
In addition, this method measures all delayed allergic paths: All antibody types (IgG, IgA, and IgM), immune complex reactions (IgM anti-IgG antigen complexes), and direct T lymphocyte cell-mediated delayed immune reactions.
