The objective of this study was to investigate the thymol effects on oxidative parameters along with trace elements in asthma experimental model. The Balb/c mice were sensitized by intraperitoneal injection of ovalbumin and thymol (8, 16 and 32 mg/kg) and dexamethasone (DEX) (2 mg/kg) were orally administered to sensitized mice. Oxidative stress parameters including protein carbonyl content, malondialdehyde (MDA), 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) and total antioxidant capacity (TAC) besides trace element levels were evaluated. The protein carbonyl content, MDA and 8-OHdG in treated mice with 32 mg/kg of thymol si...

[USEFULNESS OF THE FORCED OSCILLATION TECHNIQUE IN THE DIAGNOSIS OF COUGH VARIANT ASTHMA WITH PROLONGED OR CHRONIC COUGH]. Arerugi. 2018;67(6):759-766 Authors: Kato K, Tanaka H Abstract BACKGROUND: Usefulness of carrying out the reversibility test after inhaling bronchodilator by forced oscillation technique (FOT) in addition to spirometry was investigated in the diagnosis of bronchial asthma (BA), cough variant asthma (CVA) and allergic rhinitis (AR) with prolonged or chronic cough. METHODS: The subjects were the 622 patients at Idaimaeminamiyojo Clinic in Sapporo who complained cough over three...

CONCLUSIONS/IMPLICATIONSThis study provides a baseline assessment for examining trends in 30-day unplanned pediatric readmissions, an important quality metric as the provisions of the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act and the Affordable Care Act are changed and implemented in the future. Over 50,000 pediatric hospital stays in 2014 occurred within 30 days of a previous hospitalization, with an average cost of $13,800. This report is timely, as the health care system works to become more patient-centered and public and private payers grapple with how to pay for quality care for children. The report pro...

ConclusionThis study provides a new insight into the relationship between allergic symptoms and childhood acute lymphoid leukaemia, by suggesting this inverse association could be limited to children carrying certain genetic polymorphisms. If confirmed, these results could help better understand the biological mechanisms involved in the development of childhood acute lymphoid leukaemia.

This study aimed to evaluate how polymorphisms in DAD1 and OXA1L are associated with asthma and markers of atopy in individuals from the Salvador cohort of the SCAALA (Social Change Asthma and Allergy in Latin America) program. The DNA of 1220 individuals was genotyped using the Illumina 2.5 Human Omni Bead chip. Logistic regression analyses were performed with PLINK 1.9 software to verify the association between DAD1 and OXA1L polymorphisms and asthma and atopic markers, adjusted for sex, age, helminth infections and ancestry markers, using an additive model. The DAD1 and OXA1L genes were associated with some of the evalu...

ConclusionsIn patients with nasal polyposis, asthma may alter the redox profile associated with the hydrogen peroxide and lipid damage pathways, whereas asthma and intolerance to acetylsalicylic acid increase nitrite and nitrate and total glutathione levels.

The objective of this study is to analyze the relationship between chronic rhino-sinusitis (CRS) and systemic symptoms in patients with IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD).Patients and methodsThe patients with IgG4-RD, confirmed by restrict association with clinical and histopathological manifestations between March 2013 and July 2016, were enrolled and followed-up for 1  year at the Tongren Hospital, Capital Medical University. The patients were divided into two groups: the case group included IgG4-RD patients with CRS confirmed by clinical and imaging, while the control group included IgG4-RD patients without CRS confirm...
