Otitis Media in Childhood and Disease in Adulthood: A 40-Year Follow-Up Study

Conclusion: Our large cohort study, which is the first to focus on the link between otitis media in childhood and immune-related inflammatory disorders later in life, does not confer a clear association. CSOM in childhood was strongly related to adult tinnitus and hearing loss, which was most frequently registered as sensorineural.

(Trinity College Dublin) Researchers from Trinity College Dublin have made a breakthrough that may eventually lead to improved therapeutic options for people living with asthma. The researchers have uncovered a critical role for a protein (Caspase-11), which had previously never been implicated in the disease, and which may offer a promising target for drug designers.

(Norwegian University of Science and Technology) As nations prepare to mitigate climate change, decision makers need to understand how land use fits into the climate equation. A new study looked at land use changes over two decades and found a major shift from cropland to forests. That change made western Europe cooler.

In this study we demonstrate a vital role for Mbd2 in regulating murine colonic inflammation. Mbd2-/- mice displayed dramatically worse pathology than wild type controls during dextran sulphate sodium (DSS) induced colitis, with increased inflammatory (IL-1 β+) monocytes. Profiling of mRNA from innate immune and epithelial cell (EC) populations suggested that Mbd2 suppresses inflammation and pathology via control of innate-epithelial cell crosstalk and T cell recruitment. Consequently, restriction of Mbd2 deficiency to CD11c+ dendritic cells and macro phages, or to ECs, resulted in increased DSS colitis severity. Our ...
