: A 74-year-old man with silicosis was admitted to the hospital because of prolonged fever. After referral to internal medicine for persistent fever and renal dysfunction, workup revealed antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) positivity. He was diagnosed with microscopic polyangiitis (MPA). After treatment with immunosuppressive therapy, his condition improved. Herein, we discuss silica exposure and the risk of ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV), particularly in terms of work-related diseas...

A 61-year-old Japanese man with IgG4-related autoimmune pancreatitis was referred to our hospital because of perspiration during food intake. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) with contrast media revealed multiple mesenteric lymphadenopathies. An open surgical abdominal biopsy and subsequent histopathological analysis revealed abnormally large lymphoid cells that were negative for CD3, CD5, and c-myc and positive for CD20 and bcl-2, leading to a diagnosis of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Here,...

Abstract Glycyrrhizin (GL) is a major constituent of licorice root and has been suggested to inhibit the release of high mobility group box-1 (HMGB1), a protein considered representative of damage-associated molecular patterns. We found that GL bound HMGB1 but not RAGE with a moderate equilibrium dissociation constant value based on surface plasmon resonance analysis. This complex formation prevented HMGB1 from binding to RAGE in vitro. The effects of glycyrrhizin on traumatic brain injury (TBI)...
