Authors: Gianella GE, Miranda JJ, Hurst JR Abstract The diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a global health problem, is challenging in resource-constrained settings. Spirometry with an obstructive pattern after the administration of bronchodilators is required for the diagnosis of COPD. Existing COPD treatment guidelines, largely derived from studies performed in populations of cigarette-smokers, recommend pharmacologic interventions with a tendency to include new-and expensive-drugs as first line agents. As the different factors that cause nonsmokers to develop COPD lead to different phenoty...

Authors: Cavaliere C, Frati F, Ridolo E, Greco A, de Vincentiis M, Masieri S, Makri E, Incorvaia C Abstract Introduction: The basis of the development of the anti-interleukin-5 monoclonal antibody mepolizumab was the acknowledgment of the crucial importance of this cytokine in promoting eosinophils production, activation, and survival, which is associated with the eosinophilic asthma phenotype, as well as with other disorders characterized by high levels of eosinophils. Areas covered: All the available literature on the outcomes treatment with mepolizumab in eosinophilic disorders are reviewed, including asthma, ch...

ConclusionsIn addition to LVAD-related thrombogenicity, the subsequent need for anticoagulation, and an acquired von Willebrand syndrome, several clinical factors, such as deviation from the anticoagulation regimen, hypertension, COPD, device infections, and aortic cross clamping, appear to have an influence on the extremely high rate of postoperative ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes.

AbstractBackgroundFunctional limitations may be more common in middle-aged adults than previously recognized. However, there are few published data on the prevalence of activity limitations, and their association with multimorbidity, among adults 50 to 64  years old.ObjectiveTo describe the prevalence of activity limitations and the association with multimorbidity in middle-aged adults.DesignCross-sectional analysis of US population-based National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2011 –2016.ParticipantsThe total number of community-dwelling NHANES participants aged 50 –64 years old is ...
