Osborne H Abstract The calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) is a class C G protein-coupled receptor that responds to multiple endogenous agonists and allosteric modulators, including divalent and trivalent cations, L-amino acids, γ-glutamyl peptides, polyamines, polycationic peptides, and protons. The CaSR plays a critical role in extracellular calcium (Ca2+ o) homeostasis, as demonstrated by the many naturally occurring mutations in the CaSR or its signaling partners that cause Ca2+ o homeostasis disorders. However, CaSR tissue expression in mammals is broad and includes tissues unrelated to Ca2+ o homeostasis, ...

Authors: Kupczyk M, Baiardini I, Molinengo G, Loera B, Szydłowska D, Kuna P, Canonica GW, Braido F Abstract Introduction: The RhinAsthma Patient Perspective (RAPP) was developed in Italian to assess the Health Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) impairment in patients with asthma and allergic rhinitis (AR) in daily practice. Aim: To cross-culturally validate the Polish version. Material and methods: The Polish version was administered to patients suffering from asthma and rhinitis in a prospective observational study. Polish RAPP, along with SF-12, ACT, and a Symptomatologic VAS was filled in twice, with a 4-w...

Authors: Bernatowicz PL, Golec P, Bielecki P, Kowal K Abstract Introduction: The CD163 is exclusively expressed by mononuclear phagocytes as a transmembrane protein, which synthesis is regulated by anti- and pro-inflammatory signals. After shedding from the cell surface it exists in body fluids as a soluble protein (sCD163) which exerts anti-inflammatory effects. Aim: To evaluate serum concentration and ex vivo production of sCD163 by peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) in asthmatic patients treated with inhaled (ICS) or oral corticosteroids (OCS). Material and methods: The study was performed on 35 a...

Atopic dermatitis-patients are predisposed to have bacterial, viral and fungal skin infections; they also su...

Conclusion: This study confirmed the poor level of control patients have over their asthma, and how this affects their lifestyle and daily activities. Our results also confirmed that the patients' perception of both the disease and treatment plays a key role in SABA reliance and ICS underuse. PMID: 32469667 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Transcription factor AP‑2α negatively regulates thymic stromal lymphopoietin expression in respiratory syncytial virus infection. Mol Med Rep. 2020 May 28;: Authors: He J, Cao Q, Feng DD, Chen JH, Zhou GP Abstract Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection enhances the cell‑mediated immune responses of type 2 helper T cells and promotes the progression of allergic inflammation and asthma by producing thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP), especially long isoform TSLP (lfTSLP). However, the role of short isoform TSLP (sfTSLP) in RSV infection remains to be elucidated. The present study was...

Effect of IL‑7 on Th17 cell responses in a mouse model of neutrophilic asthma. Mol Med Rep. 2020 May 27;: Authors: Zhang X, Zhang M, Jiang M, Nong G Abstract Neutrophilic asthma (NA) is characterized by neutrophil‑mediated inflammation and the presence of Th17 cells. However, the mechanisms underlying Th17 cell responses in NA remain unknown. The aim of the present study was to examine the effects of interleukin (IL)‑7 on Th17 cell responses in NA. A NA mouse model was sensitized by airway delivery of ovalbumin (OVA) and lipopolysaccharide and challenged with 1% OVA aerosol from day 21 for 3 ...
