ConclusionsThere are large variations in the differences between CDC self-reported estimates for the general population and the in-contact estimates for the Medicaid-enrolled children, highlighting potential asthma misdiagnosis in the Medicaid population in many states. Small area estimates point to areas of high prevalence, consistently throughout the south and southeast.

Both allergy and chronic psychological stress are characterized by immune imbalances that have similar characteristics. Thus it is reasonable to posit that the two are interactive and that stress may induce as well as complicate at least some ...

AbstractObjectiveTo observe the effect of San-Ao Decoction ( 三拗汤, SAD) on water metabolism of bronchial asthra model mice.MethodsForty-five female BALB/c mice were randomly divided into control, model and SAD groups by a random number table, 15 mice in each group. A composite method with ovalbumin (OVA) sensitization and challenge was developed to establish bronchial asthma model. Mice in the control group were intraperitoneally injected with distilled water without aerosol inhalation challenge. On day 15 –22, 0.3 mL SAD was administered via gastric route in SAD group, one time per day, while an equivalent volu...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewAsthma is a heterogenous, chronic respiratory disease characterized by airway inflammation, obstruction, and hyperresponsiveness that results in debilitating respiratory symptoms. Despite advances in management strategies, severe asthmatics are often not responsive to the standard management and are disproportionately impacted. Bronchial thermoplasty offers a treatment option for this subgroup of severe asthmatics.Recent FindingsMultiple clinical studies have examined bronchial thermoplasty effectiveness and safety in severe asthma. Recent post-market and translational studies have brought new insi...

Publication date: Available online 15 October 2018Source: Forensic Science International: GeneticsAuthor(s): Cedric Bradbury, Anna Köttgen, Fabian StaubachAbstractWith recent advances in DNA sequencing technologies it has become feasible and cost effective to genotype larger marker sets for forensic purposes. Two technologies that make use of the larger marker sets have come into focus in forensic research and applications; inference of biogeographic ancestry (BGA) and forensic DNA phenotyping (FDP). These methods hold the promise to reveal information about a yet unknown perpetrator from a DNA sample. In contrast, DN...
