Macrophage Activation Syndrome in SJIA - Alexei Grom

  1. 1. Macrophage Activation Syndrome in SJIA Alexei Grom, MD Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
  2. 2. Macrophage Activation Syndrome • Caused by excessive activation and multiplication of predominately two types of immune cells • cytotoxic CD8+ T cells and • macrophages • Excessive activation of these cell leads to massive inflammation that might be life-threatening
  3. 3. Normal macrophages • a type of white blood cells that engulfs and destroys microbes and other foreign substances in a process called phagocytosis
  4. 4. Macrophages in MAS • Overly activated • Start phagocytosing and destroying normal blood cells (such as red blood cells, neutrophils and platelets) • Destruction of these blood cells leads to a sudden drop in their numbers and might be life-threatening
  5. 5. Normal cytotoxic T cells • A cytotoxic T cell (also known CD8+ T-cell or killer T cell) is a T lymphocyte (another type of white blood cells) that kills cancer cells, and cells that are infected (particularly with viruses)
  6. 6. Annual Reviews
  7. 7. MAS is a cytokine storm
  8. 8. MAS is a cytokine storm • Immune cells communicate with each other by sending various “chemical signals” called cytokines • some cytokines cause inflammation • some cytokines reduce inflammation • In MAS, there is excessive activation and multiplication of macrophages and cytotoxic T cells that produce too much cytokines that cause inflammation
  9. 9. MΦ Proposed Mechanisms of Macrophage Activation in Hemophagocytic Syndromes 11 CD8+ IFN-γ GM-CSF MΦ MΦ MΦ MΦ MΦMΦ MΦ Mo TNF-α IL-6 IL-1 IL-18 M-CSF CD8+ CD8+ CD8+ CD8+ CD8+ CD8+ CD8+ CD8+ CD8+ CD8+ CD8+ MΦ
  10. 10. MAS and Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis • striking clinical similarities between MAS and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis • hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis is a genetic disease in which cytotoxic cells have decreased ability to kill cells infected with viruses • Mouy R, et al. J Pediatr 1996;129:750

  14. 14. Signs and Symptoms Macrophage Activation Syndrome
  15. 15. Macrophage Activation Syndrome • Patients look very ill, run high fevers • Laboratory abnormalities: • Sudden drop in hemoglobin, platelet and neutrophil counts • Very high serum ferritin • Impaired liver function • Increased liver enzymes (Ast, Alt) • Decreased ability to make proteins involved in blood coagulation (such as fibrinogen) leading to bleeding Silverman ED, et al. J Pediatr 1983;103:872. Hadchouel M, Prieur AM, and Griscelli C. J Pediatr 1985;106:561.
  16. 16. MAS in Pediatric Rheumatology • Has been reported in association with almost any rheumatic disease • By far, most common in systemic JIA • About 80% of reported cases occurred in association with systemic JIA • SLE, Kawasaki disease • Prevalence of “overt MAS” in systemic JIA is ~10% Sawney, et al. Arch Dis Child 2001;85:4210 • Evidence of subclinical MAS in a subgroup of systemic JIA patients with active systemic disease (~30%) Bleesing, et al. Arthritis Rheum 2007;56:965 Behrens, et al. J Rheumatol 2007:34:1133
  17. 17. Laboratory monitoring for signs of MAS • Cell blood count • Ferritin • Liver enzymes • Fibrinogen • Soluble IL2Rα • Soluble CD163
