Validation and reliability of the scale Self-efficacy and their child's level of asthma control. Rev Bras Enferm. 2018 Mar-Apr;71(2):406-412 Authors: Gomes ALA, Joventino ES, Lima KF, Dodt RCM, Almeida PC, Ximenes LB Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the psychometric properties in terms of validity and reliability of the scale Self-efficacy and their child's level of asthma control: Brazilian version. METHOD: Methodological study in which 216 parents/guardians of children with asthma participated. A construct validation (factor analysis and test of hypothesis by comparison of contrasted groups) and an analysis of reliability in terms of homogeneity (Cronbach's alpha) and stability (test-retest) were carried out. RESULTS: Exploratory factor analysis proved suitable for the Brazilian version of the scale (Kaiser-Meyer-Olkim index of 0.879 and Bartlett's sphericity with p

Conclusions The results of the present study suggest that hITLN-1 may be involved in the pathogenesis of ICEP and HP, and that an increase in the hITLN-1 concentration in the BAL fluid may represent a new biomarker for these diseases. PMID: 30101907 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Allergen variability and house dust mite sensitivity in pre-school children with allergic complaints. Turk J Pediatr 2018; 60: 41-49. The increase in the prevalence of allergic diseases in pre-school children who are often at home may be due to an increase in house dust mite sensitivity, which is rarely expected in this age group. In our study, it was aimed to investigate allergen sensitivities, especially house dust mite sensitivity in pre-school children with allergic disease complaints b...

The "Lung Function" thematic group of the French Pulmonology Society (SPLF) elaborated a series of guidelines for the performance and the interpretation of methacholine challenge testing, based on French clinical guideline methodology. Specifically, guidelines are p...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe hyper IgE syndromes (HIES) comprise a group of rare primary immunodeficiency disorders (PIDDs), which are characterized by extremely high serum IgE levels, eczema, recurrent skin and pulmonary infections. Both autosomal dominant (AD) HIES due to STAT3 mutations and autosomal recessive (AR) HIES due to PGM3, SPINK5, DOCK8 and TKY2 mutations have been reported. Here, we aim to summarize and compare the major clinical manifestations of different subtypes of HIES. We will also discuss otitis media, which usually do not get enough attention in HIES. Update and familiarity with these clinical feature...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTelemedicine is a technology that permits patients to be seen at a distance. This review describes different types of telemedicine, why they might be useful for a practice, what equipment is needed, and how to select and schedule patients.Recent FindingsThe use of synchronous telemedicine is increasing rapidly and has surpassed 50% of ambulatory encounters in some instances. Management of patients is particularly germane for an allergy practice since it is an outpatient specialty with patients who live in widely distributed locations with limited access to allergists. With utilization of digital ex...

ConclusionsThe inhibition of inflammasome/caspase-1 is one of key mechanisms of action in asthma. Some traditional recipes are active on this mechanism and are thus strong candidates for the treatment of asthma and other inflammasome-mediated diseases. Further investigations are needed to characterize active molecules.Graphical abstract
