The Childhood Asthma Control Test improves the therapeutic adaptations recommended for asthmatics aged 6 to 11 years in primary practice. A Randomized comparative prospective study.

CONCLUSION: The use in primary care of C-ACT should allow a better assessment of asthma control and adaptation of treatment in children. PMID: 31473028 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

A subspecialist friend of mine once told me, in jest, “get an organ” as we were debating over which of us should manage a disease that overlapped in both of our specialties. However, to do so is impossible in the field of allergy. As allergist-immunologists, we quickly came to understand that allergic diseases are immunologic, and by definition, in volve the entire body. It is true that many allergic diseases manifest predominantly in 1 organ, such as asthma involving the lung or atopic dermatitis involving the skin, yet all allergic diseases are systemic.

This article evaluates the role of allergen immunotherapy (AIT) in the treatment of allergic rhinitis (AR). AIT has been shown to be effective in treating AR symptoms with resultant improvements in overall quality of life, comorbid illnesses, and medication requirements. Persistent clinical benefits have been shown years after AIT treatment discontinuation. AIT may prevent the progression of AR to asthma. AIT may more cost-effective than pharmacotherapy. Multiple individual studies and systematic reviews provide strong evidence for the clinical effectiveness of AIT in the treatment of AR. Cost-effectiveness and disease mod...

AbstractThe European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) supports three journals: Allergy, Paediatric Allergy and Immunology as well as Clinical and Translational Allergy. The major goals of EAACI include (i) supporting health promotion in which the  prevention of allergy and asthma plays a critical role and (ii) disseminating the knowledge of allergy to all stakeholders including the EAACI junior members. Substantial progress was made in 2018 in the identification of basic mechanisms of atopic dermatitis and urticaria and the translation of t hese mechanisms into clinics. Many large epidemiologic studi...

ConclusionsMa huang-induced neurotoxicity may be associated with its effects on amino acid neurotransmitters. Gui zhi is a promising neuroprotective agent against for ma huang-induced neurotoxicity. The information presented in this study will help supplement the available data for future ma huang-gui zhi herb pair compatibility studies.Graphical abstract

ConclusionThese results indicate that QWDQW plays a role in suppressing excessive airway reaction and in specific immune modulation in a mouse model of chronic asthma and that QWDQW suppresses mast cell degranulation at defined doses of quercetin, β-carotene and luteolin.Graphical abstract
