HAY FEVER sufferers could be in for a tough few weeks after April ’s mini-heatwave triggered an explosion of pollen which is set to cause discomfort for those with hay fever or asthma.
[Zimbabwe Standard] One of the late former MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai's sisters died of asthma and heart disease complications after her family was forced to withdraw her from Parirenyatwa Hospital due to the strike by nurses.
By assessing the industry- and occupation-specific prevalence of asthma, this report aims to assist physicians to identify workers who should be evaluated for possible work-related asthma.Morbidity &Mortality Weekly Report
This study investigated the documented diagnosis of children’s asthma in clinic visits for children aged less than 15 years old that were associated with PM2.5 in two counties located in west-central Taiwan during 2005–2010. The result shows that PM2.5 had a significant lagged effect on children’s asthma for up to 6 days. A significantly higher relative risk for children’s asthma was more likely to happen at 2-day lag compared to the present day when PM2.5 increased from 36.17 μg/m3 to 81.26 μg/m3. Considering all lagged effects, the highest relative risk for children&a...
Abstract It has been a little more than 50 years since we discovered IgE, a key molecule for the allergic response and a target for treating allergies and severe asthma. Here, I trace my career, from the kindling of my interest in immunochemistry to groundbreaking discoveries in the biology and chemistry of immunoglobulins. I describe my service to the broader community of immunologists and my role in shaping departments and research institutes. My course starts in Japan and includes Southern California, Baltimore, and Denver. PMID: 29677471 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: Our findings support a connection between asthma and children's glycosylated hemoglobin values; however, this association remains entwined with obesity factors. PMID: 29676936 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Chamber and Field Studies demonstrate Differential Amb a 1 Contents in Common Ragweed Depending on CO₂ Levels. Allergy Asthma Immunol Res. 2018 May;10(3):278-282 Authors: Choi YJ, Oh HR, Oh JW, Kim KR, Kim MJ, Kim BJ, Baek WG Abstract Although atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO₂) has no apparent direct effect on human health, it does have direct effects on plants. The present study evaluated the influence of increased CO₂ levels on the concentration of allergens from common ragweed pollen by setting up a chamber study to model future air conditions and a field study to evaluate current air conditions...
CONCLUSIONS: The results of this paper show the immunologic characterization of bone marrow-derived MMCs and CTMCs, providing useful protocols for in vitro modeling of MC subsets. PMID: 29676074 [PubMed]
