The agency proposed that surgeons discuss the risks with patients and that manufacturers print bold warnings on the device packaging.
Authors: Proboszcz M, Mycroft K, Paplinska-Goryca M, Górska K, Nejman-Gryz P, Jankowski P, Zak N, Krenke R Abstract Blood eosinophilia has been proposed as a surrogate marker for airway eosinophilia and as a predictor of treatment response in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The aim of the study was to assess the relationship between blood and sputum eosinophils and to investigate the association between blood and sputum eosinophil count and clinical features of mild-to-moderate COPD. We performed a retrospective analysis of blood and sputum eosinophil count, as well as demographic and lung func...
Authors: Frykholm E, Lima VP, Selander HV, Nyberg A, Janaudis-Ferreira T Abstract While the mechanisms underlying exercise limitations and symptoms during leg activities have been investigated in detail, knowledge of potential differences between leg and arm activities are not well understood and results from individual studies are contradictory. Thus, the aim of the present study was to synthesize physiological and symptomatic responses during activities involving the arms relative to activities involving the legs in people with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Any study with a cross-sectional compari...

Antagonists of the type 1 cysteinyl leukotriene receptor (CysLT1R) are widely used to treat asthma and allergic rhinitis, with variable response rates. Alveolar macrophages express UDP-specific P2Y6 receptors that can be blocked by off-target effects of CysLT1R antagonists. Sensitizing intranasal doses of an extract from the house dust mite Dermatophagoides farinae (Df) sharply increased the levels of UDP detected in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid of mice. Conditional deletion of P2Y6 receptors before sensitization exacerbated eosinophilic lung inflammation and type 2 cytokine production in response to subsequent Df challeng...
