In conjunction with seizure reduction, the patient showed sustained normalization of inflammatory markers and marked improvement in quality of life and social/academic functioning. Although genetic testing for well characterized, Speer4a monogenetic autoinflammatory disorders was negative, this patient had significant signs of systemic autoinflammation. proteins. She experienced prompt clinical response to IL-1 blockade with first anakinra and then canakinumab, with near complete resolution of clinical seizures. Additionally, she displayed marked improvements in quality of life and social/academic functioning. Baseline gene expression studies on peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from this patient showed significantly activated gene pathways suggesting systemic immune activation, including focal adhesion, platelet activation, and Rap1 signaling, which is Rupatadine Fumarate an upstream regulator of IL-1 production by the NLRP3 inflammasome. It also showed activation of genes that characterize inflammasome-mediated autoinflammatory disorders and no signs of interferon activation. This gene expression signature was largely extinguished after anakinra treatment. Conclusions Together,…
