Krajewska, Paula Mosińska, Karolina Niewinna, Aleksandra Tarasiuk, Kirill Martemyanov, Maciej Salaga, Jakub FichnaAbstractFamily of Free Fatty Acid Receptors (FFARs), specific G protein-coupled receptors comprises of four members: FFAR1-4, where each responds to different chain length of fatty acids (FAs). Over the years, FFARs have become attractive pharmacological targets in the treatment of type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular diseases and ast...

ConclusionMaximum reduction in FEV1 had the lowest variability. There was little difference between repetitions of the same methodology, as indicated by overlapping confidence intervals. There was a trend towards faster recovery following bolus challenge than with the incremental challenge. The results of this trial could be of value when designing future clinical trials using the methacholine challenge methodology.

We present a 48 year-old active duty physician who initially presented in 2007 with dyspnea and cough. Despite the absence of variable obstruction on spirometry, a clinical diagnosis of asthma was made. The patient's symptoms were temporized with inhaled corticosteroids and bronchodilators, titrated to his symptoms, until eventual therapeutic failure resulted in re-referral to pulmonary. Chest computed tomography (CT) showed ground-glass nodules and patchy airspace opacities with evidence of thoracic lymphadenopathy. A positron emission tomography CT (PET CT) showed diffuse adenopathy throughout his thorax and abdomen with...

Conclusion: PPCs after abdominal surgery are still a major problem since they have profound effects on outcomes. Our results suggest that programs before surgery, involve preoperative lifestyle changes, such as nutritional supplementation, exercise, stress reduction, and smoking cessation, were an effective strategy in mitigating postoperative complications by decreasing mortality.

Publication date: Available online 13 December 2019Source: Life SciencesAuthor(s): Xiaofang Tang, Xiaoling Tong, Yangyang AnAbstractAimsAllergic airway inflammation is one of the major pathological events involved in asthma, and dysregulation of regulatory T cells (Treg) plays a crucial role in the development of allergic airway inflammation. Here, we attempted to investigate the regulatory effects of B cell-activating factor (BAFF) on Tregs in allergic airway inflammation.Main methodsBAFF expression was analyzed by ELISA, quantitative reverse transcription PCR (RT-PCR) and Western blot assays. The levels of IL-4, TGF-&bet...

I picked up particular respirator masks so that I can go outdoors again. I ’ve apparently developed asthma due to the pollution in Salt Lake Valley and the California forest fires. It’s why I’ve been so horribly sick since September. I’ve been a near complete shut-in. Alas, I overdid things yesterday. I looked like a dork in my mask, but I happily ran errands all over town. I also worked out on my treadmill, exercise bike, and did twenty minutes of aerobic activity. Unfortunately, I forgot to use both my inhaler&nebulizer. My lungs are burning again, and the cough has returned. 🙄 I feel ...

AbstractIntroductionFor patients with eosinophilic asthma with allergic characteristics, understanding the key drivers of exacerbations is important to identify optimal treatment strategies. Benralizumab is an interleukin-5 receptor alpha –directed cytolytic monoclonal antibody that significantly reduces exacerbation frequency for patients with severe, uncontrolled eosinophilic asthma. We evaluated the predictive value of baseline blood eosinophil counts vs. serum immunoglobulin E (IgE) concentrations on exacerbation risk and the association of these variables with benralizumab treatment effect.MethodsAnalyses w...

(CNN/CBS) — At least 1,300 people have died from the flu so far this season, according to a preliminary estimate released Friday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There have been at least 2.6 million flu illnesses and 23,000 flu-related hospitalizations, according to the analysis. So far this season, the CDC has received reports of 10 children who have died from the flu, four more than the week before. Experts have warned that flu is hitting the United States early this year, and there are concerns that this early season could mean a particularly severe season overall. Flu spread significantly in ...
