Authors: Pantin CT, Southworth T, Wetzel K, Singh D Abstract Background: Allergic rhinitis is characterized by nasal inflammation in response to allergen exposure. Nasal allergen challenges are used in clinical trials evaluating drug effects. Reproducibility of nasal secretion cytokine responses and physiological measurements are needed to determine the optimum measurements and power calculations for future studies. We have investigated the reproducibility of nasal cytokine measurements, using ready-to-use polyvinyl acetate sponges to collect nasal secretions, and measurements of nasal physiological responses. ...
Conclusion: Freeze dried TD is the most suitable ready to use preparation having similar chemical properties and antioxidant activities to TD. PMID: 31186663 [PubMed]
Conclusions: The results showed that the 810 nm diode laser offered a safe and effective solution for the uncomfortable symptoms of allergic rhinitis and could be well applied during the season of Japanese cedar pollen dispersion. Furthermore, a tendency towards high efficacy was demonstrated for laser treatment in class 6 cedar pollinosis patients, based on the specific IgE antibody test. PMID: 31190693 [PubMed]
Conclusions. When as-sessing grass AIT, it is important to focus not only on endpoints but also on the quality of evidence. PMID: 31187972 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
She and her husband identified an antibody that triggers wheezing and rashes. Monitoring it can help prevent and remedy allergic reactions.
In conclusion, AR alters HDL composition linked to decreased anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties but improves the ability of HDL to suppress eosinophil effector responses.Graphical abstract
This study aimed to investigate the role of microRNA-155 (miR-155) in type-2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s) on AR. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Nasal mucosa tissues and peripheral blood samples were collected. mRNA expression of miR-155, interleukin-25 (IL-25), and interleukin-33 (IL-33) in nasal mucosa tissues was determined using quantitative Real Time-Polymerase Chain Reaction (qRT-PCR). The AR model was established by injecting with murine IL-33. The frequency of ILC2s was quantified using flow cytometry. MiR-155 agomir or antagomir was intranasally administrated to mice. MiR-155 and helper T cell 2 (Th2) cytokines were me...
Conclusion: Exposure to BC in the Užice region increases the risk of ED visits for allergic rhinitis and asthma, particularly during the heating season. PMID: 31181862 [PubMed - in process]

Acupuncture-moxibustion therapy brings the significant therapeutic effects on it. In order to achieve the significant effects on AR, the relevant key factors should be determined definitely in treatment with acupuncture-moxibustion therapy. In the combination of the theoretic study with clinical practice, the authors expounded the key factors in acupuncture-moxibustion treatm...
