ConclusionNitroproston ®, a multi action novel drug based on natural prostaglandins, altered metabolites (i.e., guanine, adenine, cortisol, cortisone and aspartate) involved in purine metabolism, urea and ammonia biological cycles, steroidogenesis, among other pathways. Suggested mechanisms of action, metabolic pathway i nterconnections and useful information to further understand the metabolic effects of prostaglandin administration are presented.

This study developed a new approach for prioritising potential environmental health indicators, using the example of the indoor environment for New Zealand. A three-stage process of scoping, selection, and design was implemented. A set of potential indicators (including 4 exposure indicators and 20 health indicators) were initially identified and evaluated against indicator selection criteria. The health indicators were then further prioritised according to their public health impact and assessed by the five following sub-criteria: number of people affected (based on environmental burden of disease statistics); severity of...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe review provides insight into recent findings on bedroom allergen exposures, primarily focusing on pet, pest, and fungal exposures.Recent FindingsLarge-scale studies and improved exposure assessment technologies, including measurement of airborne allergens and of multiple allergens simultaneously, have extended our understanding of indoor allergen exposures and their impact on allergic disease. Practical, streamlined methods for exposure reduction have shown promise in some settings, and potential protective effects of early-life exposures have been further elucidated through the investigation o...

Small airways dysfunction (SAD) in persistent adult asthmatics who have a preserved forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) is related to worse asthma control.1 Impulse oscillometry (IOS) is an effort-independent test used to phenotype SAD which involves normal quiet tidal breathing.2 Peripheral airways resistance can be derived from the difference between resistance at 5 Hz and 20 Hz (R5-R20) while the area under the reactance curve (AX) reflects the peripheral lung compliance.3 In patients with moderate to severe persistent asthma, R5-R20 and AX but not spirometry were closely related to asthma control assessed by as...

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory airway disease characterized by airway hyperresponsiveness and airway inflammation, resulting in bronchoconstriction, airway remodeling, and airway obstruction.1,2 It is a serious health issue world-wide, affecting more than 300 million individuals. The global prevalence of clinical asthma has increased during recent decades.3 Although the absolute prevalence of asthma in Korea is reported to be lower than that of other countries,4,5 the prevalence of asthma has been steadily increasing from 4.94% to 5.7% between 2006 and 2010.
