10 PLASMATHERAPY IN aHUS WITH CFH MUTATION review in Loirat et al, Pediatr Nephrol Lapeyraque, Pediatr Nephrol children with homozygous CFH mutation, 6 children + 1 adult with heterozygous CFH mutation benefited from rescue and preventive plasmatherapy (follow-ups : 7 m to 6 y) Example from Davin, Pediatr Nephrol 2008 2 monozygotic twin sisters, HUS at 4 and 4.5 y heterozygous S1191L mutation, SCR 20 First twin : PE with FFP, 40 ml/kg/day x 10 days → resolution of hemolysis Screatinine 166 → 137 µmol/l next 4 months : 5 FFP infusions,10 ml/kg, for each of 3 relapses → ESRD Second twin : PE with FFP, 40 ml/kg/day x 21 → resolution of hemolysis Screatinine 132 → 61 µmol/l → PE tapered to 40 ml/kg every 2 weeks 2 relapses treated successfully by daily PE x 7 days follow-up 6 years, Screat 66 µmol/l long-term PE therapy appears to have benefits over FFP infusions alone

16 aHUS WITH MCP MUTATION EFFECT OF PLASMATHERAPY
Italian Registry* (Caprioli et al, 2006) 14 patients French pediatric cohort** 13 patients N episodes Treated n=23 Untreated n=12 n=37 Remission 21 (91 %) 12 (100 %) 11 (92 %) 35 (95 %) * Italian cohort : FFP ml/kg/day and/or PE ml/kg, for a total of 2-36 treatments in 2-6 weeks ; hematological normalization with or without renal sequelae ** French cohort : PE ml/kg x ≥ 4, hematological normalization and no renal sequelae

17 UNEXPLAINED HUS OUTCOME ACCORDING TO TREATMENT 28 patients (French cohort)
treated* n = 12 not treated n = 16 Outcome** poor 7 (58 %) favourable 5 (42 %) poor 5 (42 %) favourable 8 (50 %) * FFP 10 ml/kg x ≥ 4 d (n = 4) PE with FFP ml/kg x ≥ 4 d (n = 8) ** poor : death, ESRD, CRI ; favourable : no sequelae or mild proteinuria

18 aHUS : PLASMATHERAPY (1)
In practice : what should be done at admission ? « Guideline for initial therapy », European Pediatric Study Group for HUS in press, Pediatr Nephrol 2008 When to start ? - as soon as possible (within 24 h) as soon as the patient’s condition allows it (BP, volemia, hydroelectrolyte equilibrium, anemia…) - question : even if serum creatinine not elevated ? yes, because : * approximately 50 % of HUS with CFH mutation go to ESRD at the 1st episode * delay in treatment initiation can be deleterious in HUS with anti-CFH antibodies

19 (2) (2) Which volume ? - Exchange 1.5 plasma volume (60-75 ml/kg) with FFP for restitution - If PE is impossible, infuse FFP ml/kg (if BP and cardiac function OK) (3) Which frequency during the first month ? - daily x 5 days - 5/week x 2 weeks - 3/week x 2 weeks (4) What are the situations which allow not to do PE or to stop early ? - MCP mutation (PE only during relapses ?) (5) Which frequency after the 1st month ? empirical : try to find the threshold dose (PE or FFP infusion) and interval for each individual patient

20 aHUS TREATMENT THE TRIGGERING EFFECT OF INFECTIONS (upper respiratory tract infection, fever, gastroenteritis) CFH CFI MCP C3 No mutation mutation mutation mutation Caprioli / / / /66 (69 %) (60 %) (100 %) (70 %) French pediatric cohort 7/ / / / /28 (41 %) (62 %) (75 %) (80 %) (75 %) Eradicate adenoïdal, tonsils, dental infections Triggering effect of vaccinations documented in some patients : benefit probably outweighs the risk → perform vaccinations, including influenza Intensify preventive plasmatherapy during infections and vaccinations (at least intensify biological monitoring) In patients with permanent activation of the alternative pathway and very low C3 : preventive antibiotics and vaccination against Neisseria meningitis and Streptococcus pneumoniae

21 aHUS ASSOCIATED WITH ANTI-CFH ANTIBODIES 10 patients (French pediatric cohort)

31 aHUS WITH CFH MUTATION LIVER (n = 2) AND LIVER + KIDNEY (n = 10) TRANSPLANTATIONS
INITIAL EXPERIENCE WITHOUT PREOPERATIVE PLASMATHERAPY (Remuzzi 2002, 2005 ; Cheong 2004) 3 children → 3 deaths (2 with diffuse thrombotic/ischemic liver lesions, 1 PTLD) SUCCESS OF COMBINED LIVER + KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION UNDER PLASMATHERAPY BEFORE AND DURING SURGERY (Saland 2006 ; Jalanko 2008) 3 children PE with FFP, 1,25 to 2 plasma volume (50 to 100 ml/kg) just before surgery FFP infusion (20 to 36 ml/kg) during surgery or PE (70 ml/kg) between liver and kidney transplantation + post operative anticoagulation → excellent function of both grafts at 8 m, 15 m and 4 y follow-up + 5 children (unpublished) : 4 combined tx → 3 success,1 death (1/7 = 14 %) 1 liver tx → success (+ 1 adult, combined tx → success )

32 aHUS INDICATIONS OF COMBINED LIVER + KIDNEY OR LIVER TRANSPLANTATION IN Consensus Conference, Bergamo, Dec 13, 2007 CFH MUTATION Consensus + : - patient who lost a 1st graft due to recurrence - patient with a family member with the same mutation who lost a graft due to recurrence - patient with a mutation reported in the litterature or registries (www.fh-hus.org) as associated with recurrence after transplantation - in such cases, liver transplantation has to be considered when renal function is preserved by plasmatherapy CFI MUTATION Same recommendations as for HUS mutation (debatable for isolated CFI mutations) CFB OR C3 MUTATION Too early to give recommendations

33 PATIENTS FOR WHOM ISOLATED KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION IS RECOMMENDED Bergamo Conference (2)
Patients with MCP mutation Patients without identified mutation in CFH, CFI, CFB and C3 Patients with "low risk" CFH, CFI and C3 mutations : same mutation in a family member, a patient in the litterature or registries, without post-transplant recurrence Except for patients with MCP mutations, intensive plasmatherapy (PE) started just before surgery is recommended

34 aHUS Treatment for the future
CFH concentrate (LFB Laboratory) - 1st trials : end of 2009 - 1st candidates : patients with total or partial CFH deficiency - respective place of PE and CFH concentrate to be evaluated in the other patients with functionnal CFH deficiency (2) COMPLEMENT BLOCKERS - near future : anti-C5 monoclonal antibodies : eculizimab - other options in development

35 ECULIZUMAB IN aHUS Preliminary data (with permission of physicians and Alexion)
J. Nuernberger et al (Essen) - One adult, aHUS, Y475S CFH mutation * 1st transplant : loss after recurrence * 2 nd transplant : recurrence, resistant to 4 PE → 1 injection of 600 mg eculizumab → remission, normalization of graft function follow-up : 5 months B. Hurault de Ligny et al (Caen) - One woman, aHUS with C3 mutation (R570Q) * 2nd transplant, Jan 2004 : several recurrences, responsive to PE May 2008 : recurrence, PE-dependent. Switch to eculizumab (protocol as for PNH) → remission maintained. Follow-up : 2 months.

36 CONCLUSION Although evidence from therapeutic trials is lacking, early plasmatherapy, best by PE, remains first line treatment to rescue aHUS, especially in patients with CFH mutation or anti-CFH antibodies. Long-term plasmatherapy also appears efficient to prevent relapses in patients with CFH mutation. Liver transplantation, isolated or combined with kidney transplantation, has to be discussed on a case by case basis for patients with mutations of complement factors synthetized in the liver. The decision remains difficult. We are at the crossing of roads, as new therapies, such as eculizumab or other complement inhibitors, and CFH concentrate, will soon be evaluated. Hopefully, these new therapeutics will allow that aHUS will no longer end-up in ESRD and the discussion of liver or combined liver + kidney transplantation might become obsolete.
