Authors: Rajendran V, Iqbal, Kumar V Abstract A case study of 35-year-old woman with persistent breathlessness and wheezing that had been unsuccessfully treated with inhaled beta 2-agonists and steroids for about two years. Patient developed dry cough and haemoptysis, so investigated further. Spirometry demonstrated a restrictive pattern. Chest CT demonstrated well defined hyperdense lesion in right middle lobe. Biopsy taken from the mass during bronchoscopy demonstrated the picture of atypical bronchial carcinoid. In this case, due to the lack of awareness, diagnosis of carcinoid was delayed by two years. PMID...

k In-Soo Yoon Honokiol (2-(4-hydroxy-3-prop-2-enyl-phenyl)-4-prop-2-enyl-phenol) and magnolol (4-Allyl-2-(5-allyl-2-hydroxy-phenyl)phenol) are the major active polyphenol constituents of Magnolia officinalis (Magnoliaceae) bark, which has been widely used in traditional Chinese medicine (Houpu Tang) for the treatment of various diseases, including anxiety, stress, gastrointestinal disorders, infection, and asthma. The aim of this study was to investigate the direct effects of honokiol and magnolol on hepatic CYP1A and 2C-mediated metabolism in vitro using rat liver microsomes and in vivo using the Sprague-Dawley rat ...

Authors: Wang S, Pan Y, Zhang Z Abstract The level of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25-(OH)D] associated with inflammatory factors in children during an asthma attack was investigated. In total, 60 child patients, who were admitted and treated in the Affiliated Children's Hospital of Xuzhou Medical University from March 2015 to March 2017, during their asthma attacks, were selected as the observation group. The patients were divided into the high 25-(OH)D (n=28) and low 25-(OH)D (n=32) groups according to the median level of 25-(OH)D. A total of 30 healthy children were selected as the control group. Biochemical indexes, hu...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewObservations suggesting that aeroallergens trigger eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) in a subset of patients raise questions about the implications this finding has on the evaluation and management of patients with EoE, including a potential role for allergen immunotherapy.Recent FindingsThe majority of studies evaluating the potential role of aeroallergens as provocateurs of EoE have addressed this issue by assessing the seasonal variation in EoE diagnosis and/or symptom onset or worsening, with mixed results. For various reasons, reaching accurate conclusions based on this methodology is potentially...

Infectious mononucleosis (IM) secondary to Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection classically presents as a triad of cervical lymphadenopathy, fever and pharyngitis1 that is often accompanied by persistent fatigue. An uncommon presentation of early IM that has been reported rarely in the literature is periorbital edema. Here, we present a case of a 19 year-old female referred to allergy clinic for evaluation of angioedema. She was found to have periorbital swelling mistaken for angioedema and ultimately was diagnosed with IM despite lacking symptoms of the classic triad.

Authors: Shan L, Kang X, Liu F, Cai X, Han X, Shang Y Abstract Vitamin D receptors (VDRs) are associated with the occurrence and development of asthma. The aim of the present study was to analyze the secondary structure and B‑cell and T‑cell epitopes of VDR using online prediction software and aid in the future development of a highly efficient epitope‑based vaccine against asthma. Blood samples were collected from peripheral blood of asthmatic children. Reverse transcription quantitative‑polymerase chain reaction (RT‑qPCR) was performed to detect the expression of VDR in the peripheral blood. Mouse model...

The roles of the TLR/NF‑κB signaling pathway in the mutual interactions between the lung and the large intestine. Mol Med Rep. 2018 May 31;: Authors: Fu W, Zhao J, Liu X, Gao Y, Zheng C Abstract The 'exterior-interior relationship between the lung and the large intestine' is a classical basic theory in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The present study aimed to investigate the roles of the toll like receptor/nuclear factor‑κB (TLR/NF‑κB) signaling pathway in the mutual interactions between the lung and the large intestine. A rat model of allergic asthma complicated with intestinal ...
