Aim: To analyze the influence of systemic diseases, medications, smoking and a family history of RAS on the prevalence and the course of the condition in Polish patients with RAS. Material and methods: Seventy-eight patients with RAS and 72 subjects without a history of RAS were enrolled in the study. All participants underwent a detailed oral examination and a full blood count. The results were statistically analyzed with Statistica 10 (St...

This study aimed at evaluating the digestibility and the ability of PV to elicit the release of cellular degranulation, following treatment with tyrosinase (PV-Tyr), caffeic acid (PV-CA) and in combination (PV-Tyr/CA), using in vitro digestion and RBL-2H3 (passive rat basophil leukemia) cell line. The digestion assay products revealed that the stability of PV in simulated gastric fluid (SGF) was stronger, while in simulated intestinal fluid (SIF) was rather weak. Western blot analysis revealed that the IgG-binding abilities of the cross-linked PV were markedly reduced. Moreover, crosslinking hampered the release of cellula...

Commins, Krzysztof Kowal, Maksymilian ChruszczAbstractWorldwide, more than one-third of the population suffers from allergies. A significant fraction of officially registered allergens originate from the profilin family of proteins. Profilins are small ubiquitous proteins which are found in plants, viruses and various eukaryotes including mammals. Although they are primarily regarded as minor allergens, profilins are important player...

Authors: Bhargava SK, Peethambaran K Abstract Chronic Rhinosinusitis (CRS) is frequently distinguished as persistent symptomatic inflammation of the nasal and sinus mucosa and is recognized as one of the most common chronic diseases, with high incidence rate. It has a major impact on overall quality of life. Although, the etiology and pathogenesis of CRS are not clearly understood, there are several hypotheses on CRS etiology and pathogenesis. The presence of biofilms and bacterial infection, as well as fungal infection, allergy, environmental pollutants, and smoking are considered as a possible environmental facto...

Authors: Mhlongo NT, Tekere M, Sibanda T Abstract Insufficient potable water resources and poorly treated drinking water quality are the world's number one cause for preventable morbidity and mortality from water-related pathogenic microorganisms. Pathogenic microorganisms, including mycotoxigenic fungi, have been identified in treated drinking water. This paper presents a review of mycotoxigenic fungi as a health risk to the public as these fungi are responsible for allergies, cancers and opportunistic infections mainly to immunocompromised patients. The exacerbating factors contributing to fungal presence in wate...
