About

This is a monocentric, comparative, cross-sectional, case-control study seeking to identify abnormalities of the C5a-C5aR1 axis between a population of patients with active IgG4-associated disease (MAG4) and two control groups: healthy subjects without MAG4 and patients with MAG4 in remission.

Full description

IgG4-associated disease is a rare fibrosing and inflammatory disorder whose pathophysiology remains poorly understood. Activation of certain monocyte/macrophage populations (in particular M2-type macrophages) has been shown to be involved during the course of the disease. The mechanisms behind this monocyte/macrophage activation are not known. Expression of the C5aR receptor on the surface of these populations, and preliminary findings of elevated C5a in these patients, suggest a potential role for this C5a-C5aR axis. Demonstration of the involvement of this pathway would open a path to therapeutic perspetives (C5aR inhibitors) for these patients, who frequently suffer from cortico-dependence and relapses. The aim of this research is to use healthcare technologies to identify cellular and molecular therapeutic targets in the context of the IgG4-associated disease
