Abstract Background Systemic AA amyloidosis is a world-wide occurring protein misfolding disease in humans and animals that arises from the formation of amyloid fibrils from serum amyloid A (SAA) protein and their deposition in multiple organs. Objective To identify new agents that prevent...
Abstract Background In ATTR amyloidosis, transthyretin (TTR) protein is secreted from the liver and deposited as toxic aggregates at downstream target tissues. Despite recent advancements in treatments for ATTR amyloidosis, the mechanisms underlying misfolded TTR-mediated cellular damage remain...
Abstract Background Early diagnosis and prognostic stratification of cardiac transthyretin amyloidosis are crucial. Although 99mTc 3,3-diphosphono-1,2-propanedicarboxylic acid (DPD) scintigraphy is the preferred method for the non-invasive diagnosis, its accuracy appears to be limited in...
Abstract Background Transthyretin (ATTR) amyloidosis is often diagnosed in an advanced stage, when irreversible cardiac damage has occurred. Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) may precede cardiac ATTR amyloidosis by many years, offering the opportunity to detect ATTR already at the time of LSS...
Abstract Background Technetium-99m-pyrophosphate (99mTc-PYP) uptake in the internal oblique muscle (IOM), which is often observed in patients with wild-type transthyretin cardiac amyloidosis (ATTR-CA), indicates amyloid transthyretin (ATTR) deposition. Objective This study aimed to assess the...
