CONCLUSIONS: The admission rate did not decline with IB use. Several confounding factors could have influenced and limited our results. A prospective study is needed to investigate the effectiveness of IB in Japan. PMID: 28824036 [PubMed - in process]

Oral steroids should not be used for treating acute lower respiratory tract infection (or ‘ chest infections ’ ) in adults who don ’ t have asthma or other chronic lung disease, as they do not reduce the duration or severity of symptoms, according to a new study published in the journal JAMA [22 August].

A tired but beaming mom greeted me as I entered the room. In her lap was a content appearing, slightly chubby, cherubic faced baby. “This is Caleb … isn’t he beautiful” mom gushed. “He is named after his dad …” but then added in a softer voice, “but I’m not sure how much he plans to be involved.” Mom’s smile waned for a moment but quickly came back. “Looking forward to coming here often,” she said as she gave me a tight bear hug that literally took my breath away. Mom ended up being prophetic on both accounts. Dad Caleb indeed ended up falling ...

(The JAMA Network Journals) Among adults without asthma who developed an acute lower respiratory tract infection, use of the oral steroid prednisolone for five days did not reduce symptom duration or severity, according to a study published by JAMA.

Conclusion and Clinical RelevanceCorticosteroid treatment inhibits IL‐13‐induced GCM of the airways in asthma, possibly through its effects on SPDEF and FOXa2 regulation of mucin gene expression. These effects are modestly augmented by the addition of a long‐acting ß‐agonist. As we found evidence for drug treatment counter‐acting the effects of IL‐13 on the epithelium, we conclude that further exploration into the mechanisms by which corticosteroids and long‐acting β2‐adrenergic agonists confer protection against pathologic airway changes is warranted.This article is protected by copyright.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewAllergen extracts are still widely used in allergy diagnosis as they are regarded as sensitive screening tools despite the fact that they may lack some minor allergens. Another drawback of extracts is their low specificity, which is due to the presence of cross-reactive allergens. Progress in allergen identification has disclosed a number of allergenic molecules of homologous sequence and structure which are present in different animal species. This review summarizes recent advances in mammalian and fish allergen identification and focuses on their clinical relevance.Recent FindingsSerum albumins a...

This report describes an automated, unbiased approach which uses color segmentation to identify structures of interest on stained sections and Euclidean distance mapping to measure the thickness distribution of airway structures. This method was applied to study the thickness distribution of the basement membrane and airway epithelium in lungs donated for research from seven nonasthmatic and eight asthmatic age- and sex-matched donors. A total of 60 airways were assessed. We report that the thickness and thickness distribution of the basement membrane and airway epithelium are increased in large and small airways of asthma...

AbstractNon-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) are the second most common trigger of drug hypersensitivity in adults and children and are considered the most common or second most common cause of drug-induced anaphylaxis. NSAID hypersensitivity reactions are classified according to the latency of symptoms in relation to ingestion and on the basis of symptoms, potential underlying disease (chronic urticaria, bronchial asthma/chronic rhinosinusitis/nasal polyps), cross-reactivity to other NSAID, and the suspected pathomechanism. The diagnosis and management of NSAID hypersensitivity depend on the confirmed or suspecte...
