Mei-Li YangHung-Chun Chen

Abstract

Glomerular involvement in patients with primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS) has rarely been reported. Among them, membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis and membranous nephropathy are the more common types. We report a middle-aged female presenting concurrently with nephrotic syndrome an...read more

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases occur as a result of an attack by the immune system on the body’s own tissues resulting in damage and dysfunction. There are different types of autoimmune diseases, in which there is a complex and unknown interaction between genetics and the environment. Discover the latest research on autoimmune diseases here.

Immune Complexes

Immune complexes are formed by the binding of antibodies to soluble antigens eliciting an immune response and are prevalent in autoimmune diseases. Discover the latest research on Immune Complexes here.

Hepatitis B Virus

Hepatitis B virus is the most common cause of hepatitis worldwide and is associated with acute, fulminant, and chronic hepatitis, as well as liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Here is the latest research.

Sjogren's Syndrome

Sjogren's syndrome is a chronic inflammatory and autoimmune disease in which the salivary and lacrimal glands undergo progressive destruction by lymphocytes and plasma cells resulting in decreased production of saliva and tears. Discover the latest research on Sjogren's syndrome here.

Membranoproliferative Glomerulonephritis

Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis is type of Chronic glomerulonephritis characterized histologically by proliferation of mesangial cells, increase in the mesangial extracellular matrix, and a thickening of the glomerular capillary walls. Discover the latest research on membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis here.

Leukemia, T-Cell

T-cell leukemia includes various types of lymphoid leukemia that affect T cells. Here is the latest research on T-cell leukemia.
