ConclusionsExposure to high-dose of OCS (101 per 100,000 patients) and SABA over-use (24 per 100,000) were frequent, and were associated with a low maintenance-to-total prescription ratio but not with primary non-adherence. These results suggest there is a need for initiatives to reduce OCS and SABA inappropriate prescribing.

Authors: Sun CG, Yue WJ, Yan XL, Zhang X Abstract OBJECTIVE: To explore the correlation of the suppressor of cytokine signaling 3 (SOCS3) gene polymorphism with childhood asthma. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 204 asthma children (observation group) and 235 healthy children (control group) were enrolled. General clinical information of enrolled subjects was collected. Inflammatory factors and pulmonary function test indexes in each subject were examined. Moreover, the polymorphism of SOCS3 gene rs9914220 was detected with the TaqMan-MGB probe. RESULTS: Asthma children in the observation group exhibited hi...

Correlations of LTα and NQO1 gene polymorphisms with childhood asthma. Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci. 2019 Sep;23(17):7557-7562 Authors: Guo SL, Liu F, Ren CJ, Xing CH, Wang YJ Abstract OBJECTIVE: To explore the correlation of the lymphotoxin alpha (LTα) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate quinone oxidoreductase 1 (NQO1) gene polymorphisms with childhood asthma. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 102 asthma children (observation group) and 80 healthy children (control group) were enrolled. The information was collected via questionnaires and the polymorphisms of LTα rs284448...

In this study, we investigated the clinical manifestations and risk factors for anaphylaxis in PFAS in Korean patients with pollinosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data were obtained from a nationwide cross-sectional study that previously reported on PFAS in Korean patients with pollinosis. Data from 273 patients with PFAS were collected, including demographics, list of culprit fruits and vegetables, and clinical manifestations of food allergy. We analyzed 27 anaphylaxis patients and compared them with patients with PFAS with oropharyngeal symptoms only (n=130). RESULTS: The most common cause of anaphylaxis in PFAS wa...

CONCLUSION: We found a significant association between short-term and very short-term PM exposure exceeding the current daily average environmental standards of Korea and asthma-related hospital visits. These results are expected to aid in establishing appropriate environmental standards and relevant policies for PM. PMID: 31538430 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Martin UJ, Fuhr R, Forte P, Barker P, Axley MJ, Aurivillius M, Yan L, Roskos L Abstract Objective: We compared the pharmacokinetic exposure following a single subcutaneous dose of benralizumab 30 mg using either autoinjectors (AI) or accessorized prefilled syringes (APFS). APFS and AI functionality and reliability for at-home benralizumab delivery have been demonstrated in the GREGALE and GRECO studies, respectively. Methods: In the open-label AMES study (NCT02968914), 180 healthy adult men and women were randomized to one of two device (AI or APFS) and three injection site (upper arm, abdomen, or t...

Publication date: 1 November 2019Source: Sensors and Actuators A: Physical, Volume 299Author(s): Dorsa Fahimi, Omid Mahdavipour, John Sabino, Richard M. White, Igor PaprotnyAbstractExposure to fine airborne particulate matter (PM), i.e., PM with an aerodynamic diameter (AD) less than 2.5 μm, is associated with many adverse health effects, including impaired pulmonary function, asthma, cardiovascular diseases, and Alzheimer. Consequently, there is a strong need for the development of small, low-cost wearable PM2.5 sensors that can be used by regular citizens to monitor their PM exposure. This work presents the design, ...
