This study highlights the impact of the size of deleted regions, as they may affect the clinical picture of patients with 16p11.2 microdeletion syndrome. Reported cases indicates the key role of the interdisciplinary approach in 16p11.2 microdeletion syndrome diagnostics, as the care of patients with this deletion is based on regular health assessment and adjustment of the nervous system develo pment therapy

Obesity has been well recognized as an important comorbidity in patients with asthma, representing a unique phenotype and endotype. This association indicates a close relationship between metabolic and inflammatory dysregulation. However, the detailed organ-organ, cellular, and molecular interactions are not completely resolved. Because of that, the relationship between obesity and asthma remains unclear. In this article, clinical and epidemiological studies, as well as data from experimental animal work, are being summarized to provide a state of the art update on this important topic.

This article seeks to highlight the evolution and the possible contribution of risk factors for COVID-19 severity according to the available data in Mozambique. The available data highlight that COVID-19 severity can be magnified mainly by hypertension, obesity, cancer, asthma, HIV/SIDA and malnutrition conditions, and buffered by age (youthful population). Due to COVID-19 epidemic evolution, particularly in Cabo Delgado, there is the need to increase laboratory diagnosis capacity and monitor compliance of preventive measures. Particular attention should be given to Cabo Delgado, including its isolation from other province...

The objective of this study is to describe how selected diseases were distributed among adults with confirmed COVID-19 (COVID-19 positive tests) and among those hospitalised for COVID-19 compared to the general population. MATERIAL AND METHOD: We used data from the Norwegian Patient Registry, the Norwegian Registry for Primary Health Care and the Norwegian Surveillance System for Communicable Diseases for adults from the age of 20 and older for the period 1 March 2020-13 May 2020. RESULTS: Of all those who tested positive for COVID-19, 7 632 (94 %) were aged 20 years or older, and 1 025 (13.4 %) of...

Conclusions: In a multi-state network of clinics, Latino children were less likely to have their asthma entered on their problem list the first day it was noted than non-Hispanic white children, but otherwise did not receive inferior care to non-Hispanic white children in other measures. Further research can examine other parts of the asthma care continuum to better understand asthma disparities.

ConclusionWe find no association between obesity and outcomes of length of stay, ICU admission, or magnesium administration. While growing evidence links obesity with asthma, our study suggests it may not be associated with the severity of exacerbation. PMID: 32962448 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
