The relationship between latitude and allergic gastroenteritis hospital admissions in New Zealand infants

Recent epidemiological studies suggest that non-IgE-mediated childhood food allergic disorders such as eosinophilic esophagitis (EOE), celiac disease and allergic gastroenteritis (AG), may be increasing in parallel with previously observed increases in childhood IgE-mediated food allergy (FA) and food-induced anaphylaxis (FIA)1-4. The term AG encompasses food protein induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES), eosinophilic enteritis and colitis, food protein induced enteropathy, food hypersensitivity enteritis and colitis, but not EOE.

Authors: Xie S, Hubbard RA, Himes BE Abstract Because chronic obstructive airway diseases like asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma-COPD overlap (ACO) increase individual susceptibility to the harmful effects of cigarettes, smoking cessation programs could strengthen their public health impact by targeting smokers with these conditions. We performed spatial analyses on data derived from the Electronic Health Records (EHRs) of 25,119 asthma, 3,323 COPD, and 3,620 ACO patients and a community-based health survey of 18,740 residents to identify regions in the Greater Philadelphia Area with a...

This article will discuss in detail the pathophysiology of asthma from the point of view of lung mechanics. In particular, we will explain how asthma is more than just airflow limitation resulting from airway narrowing but in fact involves multiple consequences of airway narrowing, including ventilation heterogeneity, airway closure, and airway hyperresponsiveness. In addition, the relationship between the airway and surrounding lung parenchyma is thought to be critically important in asthma, especially as related to the response to deep inspiration. Furthermore, dynamic changes in lung mechanics over time may yield import...

This study aimed to evaluate the use of specialised care resources generated by children and adults with atopic dermatitis, and the associated direct medical costs. METHODS: Admission details from patients admitted in specialised healthcare centres (inpatient and outpatient care) in Spain between 1 Jan 2000 and 31 Dec 2017 were analysed in a retrospective multicentre study. RESULTS: Records corresponded to 3036 patients, 1266 aged 5 years or younger. Comorbid conditions corresponded to skin infections and respiratory difficulties (asthma, bronchiectasis). Hospital incidence of atopic dermatitis was 5.8 per 100,000 ...

Authors: Mandlik DS, Mandlik SK Abstract Asthma is the most common, long-lasting inflammatory airway disease that affects more than 10% of the world population. It is characterized by bronchial narrowing, airway hyperresponsiveness, vasodilatation, airway edema and stimulation of sensory nerve endings that lead to recurring events of breathlessness, wheezing, chest tightness and coughing. It is the main reason for global morbidity and occurs as a result of the weakening of the immune system in response to exposure to allergens or environmental exposure. In asthma condition, it results in the activation of numerous ...
