Got Asthma? Avoid Allergens

SATURDAY, April 21, 2018 -- If you have asthma, it may help to reduce your exposure to allergens. Previous research has shown that roughly two-thirds of all people with asthma also have an allergy, allergy experts say. " What many people don't...

Bronchial thermoplasty is a treatment for asthma. It is currently unclear whether its histopathological impact is sufficiently explained by the proportion of airway wall that is exposed to temperatures necessary to affect cell survival. Airway smooth muscle and bronchial epithelial cells were exposed to media (37–70°C) for 10 s to mimic thermoplasty. In silico we developed a mathematical model of airway heat distribution post-thermoplasty. In vivo we determined airway smooth muscle mass and epithelial integrity pre- and post-thermoplasty in 14 patients with severe asthma. In vitro airway smooth muscle and ep...

A considerable amount of literature has been published on optimal management of patients who have allergy and/or asthma related diseases. While major progress has been reported with new and exciting pharmacological therapies which include biologically derived agents, this does not replace the need for an effective patient-provider interpersonal relationship [1]. Aside from our expertise derived from state-of-the art education (both in graduate medical education and continuing medical education) and clinical experience, there is more to optimal management of our patients ’ health besides the right prescription at the right time.

The prevalence of allergic diseases is increasing worldwide, particularly in Westernized regions. Epidemiologic studies from several continents have shown an association between infants born into farming environments and significantly decreased frequency of asthma and allergic diseases. The protective factors in farming environments remain poorly understood but may include animal exposure and farm (unprocessed) milk ingestion 1,2. The Amish, Old Order Mennonites (OOM), and Hutterites are distinct Anabaptist traditional agrarian cultures.

Primary immunodeficiency disorders (PID) are a diverse group of diseases that impact the immune system and require intensive treatment. The psychosocial impact of PID may be particularly pronounced among caregivers of children diagnosed with PID who often experience disruption to work and family responsibilities related to diagnosis and treatment, and face ongoing uncertainty regarding recurrent infections, hospitalizations, and life-threatening treatment. The psychological impact of chronic diseases may influence patient medical and psychosocial outcomes as well.

In the first line of her book, Dr. Feemster writes, “vaccines represent one of the greatest public health advances of the past 100 years.” Still, significant disparities continue to exist in widespread availability, adherence, and acceptance of vaccines, despite profound decreases and even eradication of preventable diseases since Jenner's renown ed smallpox experiments in 1796.
