Mol Aspects Med. 2021 Sep 11:101021. doi: 10.1016/j.mam.2021.101021. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAlthough there is still no consensus on the definition of Asthma-COPD Overlap (ACO), it is generally accepted that some patients with airway disease have features of both asthma and COPD. Just as its constituents, ACO consists of different phenotypes, possibly depending on the predominance of the underlying asthma or COPD-associated pathophysiological mechanisms. The clinical picture is influenced by the development of airway inflammatory processes either eosinophilic, neutrophilic or mixed, in addition to glandular changes l...
Conclusion: Our data show that PCLA is a rare disease in central Europe but can also be expected in a predominantly Caucasian population. The best treatment response was achieved with a combination of UVA1 phototherapy and high-potency topical corticosteroids.Dermatology
ConclusionThis study indicates that SIRT1 rs12778366 and rs4746720 may be genetic factors related to corticosteroid sensitivity in ITP patients.
AbstractA case of newly developed anti-glomerular basement membrane (GBM) glomerulonephritis (GN) following centipede bites and COVID-19 vaccination is presented. A 70-year-old woman presented for investigation of mild fever, generalized fatigue, and macroscopic hematuria with no past history of renal disease. One year earlier, she had been bitten by a centipede. Based on the governmental policy, she was given the first COVID-19 vaccination, and the second injection was planned 3 weeks later. Accidentally, she was again bitten by a centipede, and the injured site had swollen severely. Based on a physician’s jud...
ConclusionOur results suggest vaccine response in adolescent KRT is lower than that of the general population, but similar to that previously described in adult SOT patients and slightly better than that seen in adult KTR. This data demonstrates vaccination is safe and supports immunizing KTR who remain hesitant. Future studies should focus on better understanding of the cellular immune response to vaccination and strategies to enhance vaccine immunogenicity in pediatric SOT patients.Graphical abstract
We present a case of carcinoma cervix treated with concurrent chemoradiation. 18F-FDG PET/CT shows altered biodistribution of FDG with intense FDG uptake throughout the WAT. Later on, patient confirmed taking herbal medication for herpes zoster infection, which could contain corticosteroids, resulting in enhanced WAT uptake of 18F-FDG.
Conclusion: High OCS use in Dutch GINA 4 –5 asthma patients was common. However, in 4 out of 5 patients adherence to inhaled corticosteroid therapy and/or inhalation technique was considered suboptimal. Since optimizing inhaler therapy may reduce the need for OCSs, this should be mandatory before prescribing expensive steroid-sparing dru gs.Respiration
Conclusions: TAA produced effective and prolonged improvement of PAR symptoms over a 4-week treatment period.Int Arch Allergy Immunol
Background: Mycophenolic acid (MPA) is a potent immunosuppressive agent used in solid organ transplantation. MPA exhibits large interindividual variation in dose-normalized plasma concentrations but is nevertheless usually prescribed as a fixed dose without use of therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM). Data on the effect of corticosteroid (CS) treatment on MPA concentrations during concomitant tacrolimus treatment remains sparse.Methods: Data is based on TDM of MPA area under the concentration curve (AUC) in 210 renal transplant recipients participating in the prospective, randomized, controlled, multi-center trial (SAILOR) wh...
