ConclusionMost potent three chemicals (ZA-2, 6 and 7) could be considered as bioactive to ensure the robust quality of the enriched fraction of ZAF with defined XO inhibition potential. Therefore, either single purified component or their enriched fraction could be a better choice for the management of gout than the crude extract of ZAF. Developed HPLC method is suitable for quality assurance analysis and process control of ZAF derived product intended for gout management. XO inhibitory potential exhibited by the characterized compounds validate the traditional use of this ZAF for the treatment of gout. Further, a detailed...

There’s an argument that has been batted around in online conversations, one that I thought that, because it was so patently absurd and so readily disproven, it would simply disappear into the blogosphere . . . but it hasn’t. So let’s talk about this idea. The idea goes like this: Because glyphosate is liberally applied to wheat, including its application as a desiccant and for weed control pre-planting, during maturation, and pre-harvest, the high concentrations of this herbicide in wheat products are the cause for all the problems that emerge with wheat consumption. It means that, minus glyphosate, whea...

Difference between two exhaled nitric oxide analyzers, NIOX VERO® electrochemical hand-held analyzer and NOA280i® chemiluminescence stationary analyzer. J Asthma. 2018 Oct 18;:1-6 Authors: Tanabe Y, Harada N, Ito J, Matsuno K, Takeshige T, Harada S, Takemasa M, Kotajima M, Ishimori A, Katsura Y, Makino F, Atsuta R, Takahashi K Abstract BACKGROUND: Fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) is useful for the evaluation of eosinophilic airway inflammation, including that seen in asthma. Although a new electrochemical hand-held FENO analyzer, the NIOX VERO® (Aerocrine AB, Solna, Sweden), is clinic...

CONCLUSIONS: Simple ways to overcome emotional dependency and fortify self-esteem (exercises promoting self-awareness, opportunities cultivating decision-making, and a considerable freedom-of-choice to experience consequences) worth recommending to parents of children with asthma. Patients with suspected mental illness must be referred for psychiatric evaluations. PMID: 30335531 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, we investigated the protective effect of azithromycin on airway remodeling through the phosphoinositol-3 kinase/Akt/mechanistic target of rapamycin kinase/hypoxia-inducible factor 1α (HIF-1α)/vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) pathway. We observed that a long course of azithromycin could significantly reduce airway reactivity and ovalbulmin-induced pathological alterations in asthmatic mice. Gene expression analysis confirmed that HIF-1α and VEGF were significantly down-regulated following a long course of azithromycin administration. PMID: 30334401 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Background: Fine particulate matter (PM2.5) exacerbates airway inflammation and hyperreactivity in patients with asthma, but the mechanism remains unclear. The aim of this study was to observe the effects of prolonged exposure to high concentrations of PM2.5on the pathology and airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) of BALB/c mice undergoing sensitization and challenge with ovalbumin (OVA) and to observe the effects of apoptosis and T-cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain 1 (TIM-1) in this process. Methods: Forty female BALB/c mice were divided into four groups: control group, OVA group, OVA/PM group, and P...

This report describes an association between anorexia nervosa and idiopathic anaphylaxis. While eating disorders affect 0.6% of the population1, and idiopathic anaphylaxis occurs in approximately 1 in 10,000 individuals2 an association between anorexia nervosa and mast cell dysfunction has not previously been described. Features of anorexia nervosa include restriction of eating and energy intake, intense fear of gaining weight, and distorted perception of body weight and shape.1 We describe a fourteen-year-old girl with a history of well controlled hypothyroidism who developed sudden lip and eyelid edema, abdominal pain, s...

Despite the availability of evidence-based treatment guidelines and effective therapies for asthma, poor adherence to treatment1-5 and lack of guideline implementation into daily practice6 remain significant barriers to asthma control. Asthma management can be improved by providing information to the patient or caregiver to support adherence and verify correct dose intake, by relaying information to the clinician to facilitate timely therapeutic adjustment, and by allowing patient self-quantification.
