The study investigated whether MII-1 and MII-2 can distinguish massive (MPE) and non-massive pulmonary embolism (NMPE). METHODS A total of 146 patients (73 MPE and 73 NMPE) were included in the study that was designed as a retrospective cross-sectional analysis. F...

BACKGROUND/AIM Rituximab (RTX) and intravenous human immunoglobulin (IVIG) have been shown to be effective in the treatment of autoimmune bullous diseases (ABD), mainly pemphigus vulgaris (PV). The present study aimed to assess the clinical response of patients with ABD, mainly PV to RTX, IVIG and combined regimen of both. Whether adding IVIG to RTX therapy affects the achievement of complete remission off therapy (CR off), reduces time to CR off, time to steroid cessation, and decreases relapse...
