Nitric oxide (NO) can be used to detect respiratory or ciliary diseases. Fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) measurement can reflect ongoing eosinophilic airway inflammation and has a diagnostic utility as a test for asthma screening and follow-up while nasal nitric oxide (nNO) is a valuable screening tool for the diagnosis of primary ciliary dyskinesia. The possibility of collecting airway gas samples in an offline manner offers the advantage to extend these measures and improve the screening and management of these diseases, but normal values from healthy children and teens remain sparse. Methods . Samples were ...

The objective of this review was to summarize the findings linking gluten related conditions to pathophysiological substrates implicated in schizophrenia and mood disorders and review the evidences of potential benefits of glute-free diets in these populations. A literature search was conducted within PubMed and Scielo databases including references from inception until March 1st 2017. The strategy search was to use the key words “gluten”, “celiac disease”, “wheat”, “bipolar disorder”, “mood disorders”, “psychosis”, “schizophrenia”, “...

Hypersensitivity reactions to platinum agents are common. For carboplatin and cisplatin, the first hypersensitivity reaction typically occurs around the second and third re-exposure during the second line of therapy (eighth and ninth courses overall). For oxaliplatin, the first hypersensitivity reaction can occur throughout the treatment course. Skin testing helps risk stratify patients to appropriate desensitization protocols and assess risk for breakthrough HSRs during desensitization. A risk-stratification protocol using 3 serial skin tests and desensitization protocols enables patients with platinum agent hypersensitiv...

AbstractMedications are perceived as health risk factors, because they might cause damage if used improperly. In this context, an adequate assessment of medication use history should be encouraged, especially in transitions of care to avoid unintended medication discrepancies (UMDs). In a case-controlled study, we investigated potential risk factors for UMDs at hospital admission and found that 150 (42%) of the 358 patients evaluated had one or more UMDs. We were surprised to find that there was no record of a patient and/or relative interview on previous use of medication in 117 medical charts of adult patients (44.8%). S...

Publication date: February 2018 Source:Food Control, Volume 84 Author(s): Eston Mfueni, Aggrey Pemba Gama, Peter Kabambe, Monica Chimbaza, Grey Matita, Limbikani Matumba Food allergen labeling is an important tool in minimizing the risk of exposure to foods allergens and the resultant adverse effects for individuals with food allergies. Unlike in the industrialized countries, there have been very few studies that have scrutinized food allergen labels and analyzed the robustness of food allergen regulation in developing countries. In the present study, food allergen labeling of 105 supermarket food products in Malawi were ...
