Man’s “sworn” enemy.. The rare disease returns to the fore

And the health authorities again spoke of a disease called “Vixa’s syndrome”; It’s a disease described as mysterious, and it’s said to have affected more than 15,000 Americans so far.

Perhaps this disease, which was discovered two years ago, did not receive much attention because it is a rare health disorder that leads to infections in the body, due to genetic mutations.

The discovery of the disease was announced for the first time in the journal “NEJM” specialized in medical issues, by researchers at the US National Institutes of Health.

The study showed at the time that the list of injured included only 25 men, while there were no women with “Fixas” syndrome.

And a recent medical study published in the journal “JAMA” shed light on the disease, saying that it is more widespread than we thought, as it affects one man in 4 thousand when he is over fifty.

What is Vixx’s disease?

The researchers found that all 25 patients had a genetic mutation in a gene called “UBA1”, and this is the origin of the new disease, which has become known as the “enemy of men”.

The list of symptoms includes:

  • increase in body temperature.
  • Decreased number of blood cells.
  • inflammation.
  • feeling itchy
  • Cough.
  • Swelling and pain in the ear, nose and joints.
  • Difficulty breathing.
  • I’m feeling tired
  • Anemia.
  • Coagulation.

Don’t underestimate him!

The data revealed that people who are old become more prone to developing the disease, and women in turn may suffer from this health disorder, and therefore they are not completely safe from infection.

The disease affects one woman in 26,000 women over the age of fifty.

Experts say that the disease gradually enters the body, then worsens and becomes severe and fatal over time, and therefore it is not just a transient disorder.

It is estimated that a person suffering from this genetic disease has an average life expectancy of ten years.

Not known to doctors

Experts fear that many people have failed to diagnose the disease, as its symptoms are similar to many other diseases such as itching and heat.

The disease can be detected through a genetic blood test, while it can be treated with steroids and other immunosuppressive drugs to help relieve symptoms.

One of the current obstacles to the disease is that a large number of doctors themselves do not know anything about this health disease, and therefore they may not warn patients when they come to seek treatment.

There is currently no available and licensed drug that completely eradicates the disease, but existing medical drugs are limited in alleviating the symptoms.

In the future, the treatment of “Vexas” disease may become available through bone marrow transplantation or gene editing therapies.
