expression of the cd2 activation epitope t11-3 (cd2r) on t cells in rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, ankylosing spondylitis, and lyme disease: phenotypic and functional analysis.cd2r is an activation-associated epitope unmasked by a conformational change of the cd2 cell-surface glycoprotein. in spite of elaborate studies on the role of cd2 and cd2r in adhesion and stimulation of t cells in vitro, no instances of cd2r expression in vivo were known to date. we report high levels of cd2r observed on blood and synovial fluid t cells in rheumatoid arthritis and on peripheral blood t cells in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, ankylosing spondylitis, ...19911715605
[aspecific eye disorders in lyme disease].lyme disease shows a large variety of clinical signs and symptoms. ocular disease may occur in the disseminated stage of the disease. ocular signs are often not specific of lyme disease. in the presence of unexplained ocular disease it may be wise to consider lyme disease as a possible diagnosis. diagnosis and therapy in two lyme disease patients with ocular disease are discussed.19911922471
lyme borreliosis.lyme borreliosis is a complex infectious process that primarily involves the skin, heart, joints, and nervous systems. the infectious agent is the spirochete b burgdorferi, which is transmitted by the ixodes genus of ticks. the clinical presentations of lyme disease are protean because of the overlap of stages and varied organ system involvement. furthermore, as previously mentioned, approximately one-third of lyme patients are unable to recall a tick bite. lyme borreliosis should be suspected i ...19911918895
