08/01/1995 - "Expression, saturation, and endocytosis of IgA Fc receptors (Fc alpha R) were analyzed in blood phagocytic cells of patients with alcoholic liver cirrhosis (ALC). "
08/01/1995 - "Altered expression of monocyte IgA Fc receptors is associated with defective endocytosis in patients with alcoholic cirrhosis. "
04/01/1985 - "Twenty-one patients with primary IgA nephropathy, 7 patients with Henoch-Schönlein nephritis and 4 patients with IgA nephropathy associated to alcoholic liver cirrhosis were tested for Fc-receptor phagocyte function by measuring the clearance of radiolabelled IgG-sensitized erythrocytes in vivo and the immune phagocytosis by monocytes in vitro. "
10/01/1991 - "Fc receptor-mediated clearance of immunoglobulin G-coated autologous erythrocytes was studied in patients with primary biliary cirrhosis (n = 14), alcoholic liver cirrhosis (n = 5) and healthy reference individuals (n = 14). "
01/01/1985 - "The number of C3b receptors detected on 100 monocytes was significantly lower in patients with primary biliary cirrhosis (23.0 +/- 12.0, mean +/- 1 SD) compared with normal controls (57.4 +/- 16.9) and other chronic liver disease (HBsAg negative chronic active hepatitis 62.0 +/- 17.0, alcoholic cirrhosis 50.9 +/- 4.0), while the number of Fc receptors detected on 100 monocytes was not significantly different in all the groups (primary biliary cirrhosis 72.8 +/- 28.6, chronic active hepatitis 74.7 +/- 14.0, alcoholic cirrhosis 58.0 +/- 13.5 and normal controls 69.6 +/- 19.9).
