ConclusionAlthough there was agreement that transition is important for AYA with allergy and asthma, there are crucial limitations and variations in the current provision of transition services across Europe. Standardisation of AYA management and specific training are required. This should improve management and continuity of care during adolescence and into adulthood to achieve the best healthcare outcomes.

This study was aimed to explore the effects of moderate treadmill exercise on cognitive deficits and possible anti-inflammatory mechanisms in ovalbumin (OVA)-sensitized rats. The exercise groups were trained to run on the treadmill 30 min/day with an intensity of 12 m/min, 5 days/week for 4 weeks. Animals in the OVA groups were sensitized by two intraperitoneal (i.p.) injections of OVA (10 μg/injection) and challenged with OVA by inhalation during the treadmill running exercise period. Passive avoidance (PA) memory, levels of interleukin (IL)-10 and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α in the hippoca...

No one needs to wonder whether we have all become more stressed, more anxious, and even more depressed in the past 6 months amid the worst pandemic in over 100 years. Fear of infection with the possibility of illness and even death is accompanied by frustrations and anxieties over the adverse impact that this virus has had on our lives —personal and professional. Most of us are creatures of habit—we like what we like, the way we like it, and when we like it. In the beginning of the pandemic, we were all scared enough that when the shutdown occurred, most of us were more worried about ourselves, our families, an...

Authors: Lam PH, Hon KL, Leung K, Leong KF, Li CK, Leung TF Abstract BACKGROUND: Atopic eczema (AE) is a common relapsing inflammatory skin disease in children which is often associated with chronicity and poor quality of life. Unlike atopic asthma, control of AE is seldom assessed in therapeutics. AIM: To investigate the utility of a Traffic Light Control (TLC) system as a measurement/assessment of self-perceived eczema control. METHODS: This is a prospectively study of all Chinese children (aged 6 to 18 years old) with eczema attending the paediatric dermatology clinic of a tertiary hospital from Jan to J...

This study builds on the assumption that being vulnerable belongs to being human, and that vulnerability also might entail strength and possibilities for growth. Methods: A narrative analysis was undertaken to illuminate how experiences of vulnerability were narrated across the four patient groups, presenting four individual stories, one from each of the patient groups. Results/conclusion: The stories illuminate how living with a chronic illness implies differing capabilities and capacities dependent on the specific condition. At the same time the stories point to how various abilities and challenges in living with chronic...

This study analyzed cross-sectional datasets of adults (aged ≥ 40 years) in the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2010-2016. Health-related QoL was assessed using the 3-level EuroQoL 5-dimension component (EQ-5D-3L) index score. The presence of chronic cough and other conditions were defined using structured questionnaires. RESULTS: The prevalence of chronic cough was 3.48% ± 0.17% among adults aged ≥ 40 years. The overall EQ-5D-3L index score was significantly lower in subjects with than without chronic cough (0.79 ± 0.01 vs. 0.86 ± 0.00, P

Abstract BACKGROUND: Higher levels of physical activity have been associated with better asthma clinical control. RESEARCH QUESTION: Does a behaviour change intervention aimed at increasing physical activity change asthma clinical control, physical activity, sedentary time, health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and anxiety and depression symptoms? STUDY DESIGN: and methods: Single-blind randomised controlled trial in which participants were allocated to an intervention group (IG) or a control group (CG). Both groups received usual care and disease-specific education. Participants in the IG also underwen...

ConclusionWe present this case report to suggest that patients surviving coronavirus disease 2019 with subsequent development of acute respiratory distress syndrome will require more intense intensive care unit recovery follow-up. Patients with a higher degree of acute illness who also have pre-existing comorbidities and those of older age who survive mechanical ventilation for coronavirus disease 2019 will require substantial post –intensive care unit care to mitigate and treat post–intensive care syndrome, promote reintegration into the community, and improve quality of life.
