Authors: Toledo-Maurino JJ Abstract Summary: Drug allergies are developed by antibody or cell-mediated reactions as immunologic mechanisms. It has been demonstrated that hypersensitivity reaction to certain allergens may play a role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) focused on food allergies. A total of 256 patients with UC were divided in two groups: 203 patients with active UC and 53 in remission UC were included in the present study. In the present study we found that 11.7% had allergy to at least one drug distributed. The most frequent drug-allergies were sulfonamides in 2.8% and penicilli...

This study aimed to assess health needs in African American churches using a mixed-methods approach. Based on quantitative and qualitative data collected from eight African American churches in Nebraska in 2017, the most prevalent chronic conditions among participating African American church members (n = 388) included hypertension (60.8%), allergies (41.0%), arthritis (36.4%), high cholesterol (35.8%), and diabetes (28.1%). Significant predictors of fair or poor health were identified as male sex, unemployment, delayed utilization of health care in the past 12 months due to cost, lower frequ ency of chu...

If you're enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles. We all have heard the phrase, Mind, Body, and Soul, but very few people understand how they all work together. Most people believe the phrase "I can achieve anything I put my mind to". In some cases this is true, however, when it comes to physical well-being and posture, the body plays a huge role in how we feel. The body sends messages known as "somatic markers" through neurotra...

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is associated with a wide range of comorbidities, particularly allergies, but its association with nonatopic autoimmune disease is less well defined. Recent genome-wide association studies have reported shared genetic loci between AD and autoimmune diseases. In the UK, most patients with these conditions are managed in primary care, meaning general practice (GP) databases provide a rich data source for studying AD. A retrospective cohort study was undertaken to examine the association between AD and the following autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis [RA], ulcerative colitis [UC], Crohn ’s ...

Abstract Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is a rare genetic disorder of neutrophil activity, resulting in increased rate of recurrent infections with catalase-positive bacteria and fungi, as well as various autoimmune diseases such as sarcoidosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and discoid and/or systemic lupus erythematosus. Few reports have reported lupus erythematosus (LE) in patients with X-linked CGD (XL-CGD) and carriers, and very few in autosomal recessive CGD (AR-CGD). Here, we present 5 patients with CGD developing LE at different ages to emphasize on the importance of appropriate follow-up and treatment in pat...

Abstract The TGF-β superfamily of cytokines plays pivotal roles in the regulation of immune responses protecting against or contributing to diseases, such as, allergy, autoimmunity and cancer. Activin-A, a member of the TGF-β superfamily, was initially identified as an inducer of follicle-stimulating hormone secretion. Extensive research over the past decades illuminated fundamental roles for activin-A in essential biologic processes, including embryonic development, stem cell maintenance and differentiation, haematopoiesis, cell proliferation and tissue fibrosis. Activin-A signals through two type I and...
