The Global Allergy and Asthma European Network (GALEN rhinosinusitis cohort: a large European cross-sectional study of chronic rhinosinusitis patients with and without nasal polyps.

CONCLUSIONS: This study provides detailed information that facilitates studying CRS and its main phenotypes. However, patient distribution of this study does not necessarily reflect disease distribution in the general population. PMID: 29911211 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: December 2019Source: Molecular Immunology, Volume 116Author(s): Tomoya Takashima, Tomoki Taku, Tomoka Yamanaka, Tamo Fukamizo, Tomoyuki Numata, Takayuki OhnumaAbstractA 38 kDa β-1,3-glucanase allergen from Cryptomeria japonica pollen (CJP38) was recombinantly produced in E. coli and purified to homogeneity with the use of Ni-affinity resin. CJP38 hydrolyzed β-1,3-glucans such as CM-curdlan and laminarioligosaccharides in an endo-splitting manner. The optimum pH and temperature for β-1,3-glucanase activity were approximately 4.5 and 50 °C, respectively. The enzyme was stabl...

CONCLUSIONS:  The rapid development of home mechanical ventilation substantially impacts on the development of the hospital landscape in Germany. The exponential increase of these care-intensive patients is challenging for the health care system and requires a discussion about its limits. PMID: 31715635 [PubMed - in process]

Let’s pretend the 195 nations that signed the 2016 Paris Climate Accord really do take all of the steps necessary to reach the agreement’s key goal: limiting the increase in global temperature to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. In that world, any children born today would grow up to witness some happy milestones. If they lived in the United Kingdom, they’d see their country phase out the use of coal by the time they turned six. If they lived in France, they would see gasoline-powered cars eliminated by their 21st birthday. And, as all of the 195 countries similarly reached their individual targets,...

This article employs a paediatric case study, involving a 3-year-old child who had an anaphylactic reaction that occurred as a result of the multidisciplinary team's failure to identify and acknowledge the patient's documented 'known allergy' status. It examines and reconsiders the ongoing healthcare dilemma of medication errors and recommends that known allergy status should be considered the second medication administration 'right' before the prescribing, transcribing, dispensing and administration of any drug. Identifying and documenting drug allergy status is particularly important when caring for paediatric patients, ...
