Disease associations of mannose-binding lectin & potential of replacement therapy
K Gupta, RK Gupta, K Hajela
May 2008, 127(5):431-440
Mannose-binding lectin (MBL) is an important component of the immune defence able to bind to repeating mannose based structural patterns typical of microbial surface (bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites) leading to opsonization and phagocytosis, and activation of the complement pathway resulting in lysis of the pathogen. MBL thus plays a very important role in the first line of host immune response. MBL deficiency has been implicated in susceptibility and modulating the severity in viral, bacterial, fungal, and protozoan infections. High MBL levels, on the contrary might be helpful to intracellular organisms, which take the advantage of C3 opsonization and C3 receptor on monocytes/macrophages to enter their host. MBL replacement therapy to help patients with MBL deficiency has undergone phase I clinical trials. Phase II and III trials and production of recombinant MBL for replacement therapy are currently underway.

Tetany in kala azar patients treated with paromomycin
CP Thakur
May 2008, 127(5):489-493
Paromomycin, an aminoglycoside, is known to cause several side effects like nephrotoxicity and ototoxicity like other aminoglycosides but tetany has not been reported. Three cases of tetany were detected in the patients of kala-azar treated with paromomycin. They were promptly treated with intravenous 10 per cent calcium gluconate and tetany was relieved immediately and treatment with paromomycin continued with oral calcium supplement. After completion of 21 days treatment with paromomycin patients' splenic aspirates were free of parasites. Paromomycin may cause temporary tubular damage leading to calcium wasting in urine and hypocalcaemia resulting in tetany. Prompt detection of symptoms and intravenous calcium gluconate treatment promptly reverse the situation.
