Authors: Kim DH, Han K, Kim SW Abstract PURPOSE: Our aim was to explore whether antibiotic exposure in children and adolescents is associated with the later development of allergic diseases, using nationwide population-based claims data. METHODS: We collected information from the National Health Insurance Service (2006-2015) database. A total of 5,626,328 children and adolescents were eligible for the study. We explored whether exposure to antibiotics over the prior 7 years affects the later development of allergic diseases. We ran 3 analytical models after adjusting for confounding factors including age, sex, ...

Authors: Scadding G, Bousquet J, Bachert C, Fokkens WJ, Hellings PW, Prokopakis E, Pfaar O, Price D Abstract The 2nd Rhinology Future Debate, organized by EUFOREA (European Forum for Research and Education in Allergy and Airways diseases) was held in Brussels in December 2017. One of these debates addressed the position of MP-AzeFlu in allergic rhinitis (AR) treatment. The current article summarizes this debate; reviewing recent data, and exploring how this has been interpreted by experts and incorporated into AR management guidelines and a clinical decision support system (CDSS).

AbstractPurpose of ReviewImpaired mucociliary clearance has been implicated in chronic upper and lower airway inflammatory diseases (i.e., allergic and non-allergic rhinitis, chronic rhinosinusitis with or without nasal polyps and asthma). How motile ciliary disorders (impaired ciliogenesis, ciliary beating and ultrastructural defects) are implicated in chronic airway inflammatory diseases is not fully understood. Elaboration of the role of motile ciliary disorders may serve as therapeutic targets for improving mucociliary clearance, thereby complementing contemporary disease management.Recent FindingsWe have summarized th...

There is a complete disconnection between physician's prescription and patient's behavior for the treatment of pollen-induced allergic rhinitis. The vast majority of allergists prescribe medications for the entire season recommending the patient to use them regularly even during days with few symptoms. On the other hand, the vast majority of patients use their medications on-demand when their AR is not well controlled and do not follow guidelines 1,2.

CONCLUSIONAND RELEVANCE: Comorbid CR is significantly associated with 30-day asthma- and COPD-related readmissions. These findings are useful for guiding healthcare professionals to focus on outpatient management of both the upper and lower respiratory tracts in order to reduce early readmission of asthma and COPD patients.
