Presentation Transcript

Igg and igm based immunopathological reaction reaction of hypersensitivity type ii

IgG and IgM based immunopathological reaction (reaction of hypersensitivity type II).

  • = antibody-dependent

  • antibodies produced by the immune response bind to antigens on the patient's own cell surfaces

  • intrinsic ("self" antigen, innately part of the patient's cells)

  • extrinsic (absorbed onto the cells during exposure to some foreign antigen, possibly as part of infection with a pathogen)

  • These cells are recognized by macrophages or dendritic cells which act as antigen presenting cells, this causes a B cell response where antibodies are produced against the foreign antigen.

Igg and igm based immunopathological reaction reaction of hypersensitivity type ii1

IgG and IgM based immunopathological reaction (reaction of hypersensitivity type II)

  • Autoimmune hemolytic anemia

  • Goodpasture's syndrome

  • Autoimmune pernicious anemia

  • Immune thrombocytopenia

  • Transfusion reactions

  • Myasthenia gravis

  • Rheumatic fever

  • Acute transplant rejection

Immun e complex based immunopathological reaction reaction of hypersensitivity type iii

Immune complex based immunopathological reaction (reaction of hypersensitivity type III)

  • occurs when antigens and antibodies are present in roughly equal amounts, causing extensive cross-linking

  • large immune complexes that cannot be cleared are deposited in vessel walls and induce an inflammatory response

  • the reaction can take hours, days, or even weeks to develop

Primary immunodeficiency


clinical manifestactions




  • Primary immunodeficiencies

    - congenital, genetically defined disorders

    - onset of symptoms - predominantly at an early


  • Secondary immunodeficiencies

    - caused by chronic infections, irradiation,

    injuries, immunosupression therapy, surgery,


    - disorders appear at any age



  • Humoral deficiency disorders

    = the B cell deficiency disorders – the qualitative or quantitative defects of the B cells, present 70% of IDs

  • T cell deficiency disorders and the combined B-cell and T-cell deficiency disorders (20%) – group of the qualitative or quantitative defects of the T and B cells

  • Phagocytic celldisorders– group of the qualitative or quantitative defects of the fagocytic cells (10%)

  • Complement disorders – caused by the deficiency of the complement components or functions (<1%)

Major clinical features


  • Humoral deficiency disorders - manifest as the recurrent bacterial sinopulmonary and gastrointestinal infections

    - caused by streptococcus, staphylococcus, haemophilus, begin when infants are 5-9 months of age

  • T cell disorders - manifest as the recurrent bacterial, fungal and viral respiratory and gastrointestinal infection

  • Complement disorders – are associated with increased incidence of the infections and autoimmune diseases and with edema in the case of hereditary angioedema

  • Phagocytic celldisorders – characterized by recurrent infections caused by various organisms incluging abscesses, purulent skin infections, granulomatousinflammations

Humoral deficiency disorders


  • Bruton’s X-linkedhypogamaglobulinemia

  • CVID - Common Variable ImmunoDeficiency

  • Selective immunoglobulin A deficiency <0,07 g/l

Bruton s x linked hypogamaglobulinemia

Bruton’s X-linkedhypogamaglobulinemia

  • the genetic defect on the X chromosome leads to the defective function of a tyrosine kinase in the B cells

  • This defect result in a block of the pre-B cells maturation into the B cells with surface IgM

  • the immunologic findings: < 2% circulating B cells

    - low serum levels of all classes of immunoglobulins

    - number and function of T cells are intact

    - pre-B cells are in the bone marrow

  • features : begining from 5-9 months of age

    - manifests as recurrent bacterial sinopulmonary and gastrointestinal infection caused by streptococcus, staphylococcus, haemophilus, meningococcus, salmonella, campylobacter, giardia

  • Treatment consists of life-long intravenous pooled human gammaglobulin replacement and antibiotics.

Common variable immunodeficiency

Common VariableImmunoDeficiency

  • the B cell functional disorder characterized by the normal number

    of the B cells, low levels of IgG and IgA, a poor response to all

    vaccines and decrease of the T cells (CD4+) number and function

clinical manifestations


Hereditary angioedema1

  • leads to absence orfunctional deficiency of C1-inhibitor

  • C4 a C2 complement components show a low level

    during atack

  • Type II - occurs in 15%

    - a functional deficiency of C1-inhibitor

  • Secondary - SLE, lymfoma

Hereditary angioedema2


  • C1 esterase inhibitor deficiency leads to uncontrolled C1 activity and resultant production of a kinin that increases capillary permeability

  • Clinical feature: transient recurrent localized edema

  • the triggering factors: injuries or surgical/stomatological operations

  • more offen occures in pregnancy

  • laryngeal edema could be life-threatening, immediate treatment is necessary !



  • Preventive – consist of an administration of androgens, a-fibrinolytics

Acquired immunodeficiencies



mechanisms involved

  • Burn, postoperative status, injuries

  • Severe nutritional disorders, chronic stress

  • Drug induced immunodeficiencies(chemotherapy), immunosupression

  • Chronic exposureto harmfulchemical substances, ionizing radiation

Igg and igm based immunopathological reaction reaction of hypersensitivity type ii


  • Acquired ImmunoDeficiency Syndrom

    - caused by a retrovirus called human immunodeficiency virus

    - current incidence 40 mil.people, predominantly in central Africa, CZ – about 1000 infected people

  • viral transmission occurs through:

    - sexual intercourse

    - contact with blood

    - transplacentally, during the birth process or

    through a breast milk

Virus hiv 1


  • virion is consisted of a capside with marrow protein - p24 and RNA

  • RNA is copied into double-stranded DNA using reverse transcriptase

  • virus integrates to the human cell genome and arise a provirus

  • an activation of provirus leads to the replication of viral nuclear acid and genesis of a virion that goes through the cell membrane and caused the lysis of cell

Primary infection


  • Infection - begins by HIV-1 with a tropism for macrofages:

    - the membrane molecules of dendritic cells bind

    glycoproteins on HIV-1 surface and transport viruses to the lymphatic nodes (LN), where activated T cells are infected viruses are replicated in the lymphatic nodes and transfer to the blood

  • features: malaise, fever, pain of muscles and joints, sweating, loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhoea, rash, lymphadenopathy

  • Immunological findings: elevated C-reactive protein, lymphopenia, decrease of CD4+ cells

  • specific antibodies against HIV-1 don‘t generate

  • identification of viruses is performed by PCR or by the evidence of viral protein p24 presence

Asymptomatic periode


  • asymptomatic period – HIVs-1 with a tropism for macrophages are changed into viruses with a tropism for T cells and demage T cells (CD4+)

  • viruses replicate in cell secondary lymphatic organs

    - the period can last a several years

  • lasting depends on:

    - virus doses and virulence

    - an individual condition of immune system an infected


    - an acceleration occures by repeated infection of

    different HIVs

Igg and igm based immunopathological reaction reaction of hypersensitivity type ii


  • AIDS- Related Complex (ARC) presents with lymphadenopathy and comes before fully developed AIDS

  • Clinical features of AIDS :

    - candidiasis of mouth and esophagous

    mucose, colpitis

    - oral leucoplakia, opportunistic infections

    - Kaposi sarcoma, non-Hodgkin‘s lymfoma



  • development of a vaccine is unsuccessful

    due to:

    - unsuccesful searching for a dominant viral antigen

    - variability of the viruses HIV-1 in the course of time

    - absence of an animal experimental model (even the

    primate‘s infection course isn‘t identical with human)



  • Inhibitors of reverse transcriptase - 2 types


  • Inhibitor of viral protease


  • Therapy result to the inhibition of DNA synthesis, stop the progress of the disease and prolong the life of HIV infected persons
