IL1RL1 single nucleotide polymorphisms are associated with asthma in the Iranian population
The objective of this study was to evaluate the association between two IL1RL1 single nucleotide polymorphisms (rs10208293 and rs1041973) and the risk of asthma in the Iranian population. We performed genotyping of the IL1RL1 SNPs in 126 adult asthmatics and 300 healthy controls using TaqMan genotyping assay. Moreover, total serum IgE level, eosinophil count, and skin prick test were accomplished. The results indicated that the AA genotype of rs10208293 was positively associated with asthma susceptibility (p=0.028). We did not find any association between rs1041973 and asthma. Overall, our findings indicate that rs10208293...

Respiratory rehabilitation for patients with COVID-19 infection and chronic respiratory failure: a real-life retrospective study by a Lombard network
Monaldi Arch Chest Dis. 2021 Dec 28. doi: 10.4081/monaldi.2021.1975. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe Lombardy region has been one of the areas most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic since the first months of 2020, providing real-life experiences in the acute phase. It is unclear how the respiratory rehabilitation network responded to this emergency. The aims of this retrospective study were: i) to analyze clinical, functional, and disability data at admission; ii) describe assessment tools and rehabilitative programs; iii) evaluate improvement after rehabilitation. The study was conducted on data collected from ten pulmo...

Home-based unsupervised pulmonary rehabilitation program improves the respiratory disability in systemic sclerosis patients with dyspnea: an observational prospective study
Monaldi Arch Chest Dis. 2021 Dec 28. doi: 10.4081/monaldi.2021.1984. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDyspnea is a common symptom in Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) that considerably decreases patients' quality of life (QoL). Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) mitigates dyspnea impact on daily activities. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect on respiratory disability of home-based PR in SSc patients with dyspnea. In this observational prospective monocentric study, we screened all dyspneic SSc consecutive patients attending the Rheumatological day hospital in the University hospital of Parma from January 2019 and June 2019.

Role of interluekin-6 and insulin resistance as screening markers for metabolic syndrome in patients of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. A hospital based cross-sectional study
Monaldi Arch Chest Dis. 2021 Dec 28. doi: 10.4081/monaldi.2021.2024. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTChronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is usually associated with a variety of extra-pulmonary manifestations. Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is one such entity that has been scarcely studied in Indian patients. Availability of a good screening marker may help in timely detection of this co morbidity in COPD patients. We conducted a cross sectional study to evaluate the prevalence of MetS among COPD patients and to evaluate the role of Interleukin-6 and insulin resistance (as measured by HOMA-IR) as screening markers for Met...

Six minute walk test in Italian children with cystic fibrosis aged 6 and 11
Monaldi Arch Chest Dis. 2021 Dec 28. doi: 10.4081/monaldi.2021.2047. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTSix Minute Walk Test (6MWT) is a field exercise test widely used in clinical practice, both in adults and in pediatric patients. The primary aim of the study is to evaluate the physical performance of the subjects and compare them with the predicted Italian values. The secondary aim is to verify the possible relationship between the 6MWT distance (6MWD) and the clinical variables of the sample. Italian children between 6-11 years affected by CF were recruited from 9 regional centres for CF. Short questionnaire assessments abo...

A middle-aged lady with near-fatal respiratory failure
We present a case of a middle-aged women with near-fatal respiratory failure due to underlying tuberculosis with favorable clinical recovery. Early diagnosis and treatment are imperative to prevent morbidity, mortality, and disease transmission.PMID:34964576 | DOI:10.4081/monaldi.2021.2103 (Source: Monaldi Archives for Chest Disease)

A complex unit for a complex disease: the HCM-Family Unit
Monaldi Arch Chest Dis. 2021 Dec 29. doi: 10.4081/monaldi.2021.2147. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTHypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a group of heterogeneous disorders that are most commonly passed on in a heritable manner. It is a relatively rare disease around the globe, but due to increased rates of consanguinity within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, we speculate a high incidence of undiagnosed cases. The aim of this paper is to elucidate a systematic approach in dealing with HCM patients and since HCM has variable presentation, we have summarized differentials for diagnosis and how different subtypes and genes can hav...

IL1RL1 single nucleotide polymorphisms are associated with asthma in the Iranian population
The objective of this study was to evaluate the association between two IL1RL1 single nucleotide polymorphisms (rs10208293 and rs1041973) and the risk of asthma in the Iranian population. We performed genotyping of the IL1RL1 SNPs in 126 adult asthmatics and 300 healthy controls using TaqMan genotyping assay. Moreover, total serum IgE level, eosinophil count, and skin prick test were accomplished. The results indicated that the AA genotype of rs10208293 was positively associated with asthma susceptibility (p=0.028). We did not find any association between rs1041973 and asthma. Overall, our findings indicate that rs10208293...

Respiratory rehabilitation for patients with COVID-19 infection and chronic respiratory failure: a real-life retrospective study by a Lombard network
Monaldi Arch Chest Dis. 2021 Dec 28. doi: 10.4081/monaldi.2021.1975. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe Lombardy region has been one of the areas most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic since the first months of 2020, providing real-life experiences in the acute phase. It is unclear how the respiratory rehabilitation network responded to this emergency. The aims of this retrospective study were: i) to analyze clinical, functional, and disability data at admission; ii) describe assessment tools and rehabilitative programs; iii) evaluate improvement after rehabilitation. The study was conducted on data collected from ten pulmo...

Home-based unsupervised pulmonary rehabilitation program improves the respiratory disability in systemic sclerosis patients with dyspnea: an observational prospective study
Monaldi Arch Chest Dis. 2021 Dec 28. doi: 10.4081/monaldi.2021.1984. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDyspnea is a common symptom in Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) that considerably decreases patients' quality of life (QoL). Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) mitigates dyspnea impact on daily activities. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect on respiratory disability of home-based PR in SSc patients with dyspnea. In this observational prospective monocentric study, we screened all dyspneic SSc consecutive patients attending the Rheumatological day hospital in the University hospital of Parma from January 2019 and June 2019.

Role of interluekin-6 and insulin resistance as screening markers for metabolic syndrome in patients of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. A hospital based cross-sectional study
Monaldi Arch Chest Dis. 2021 Dec 28. doi: 10.4081/monaldi.2021.2024. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTChronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is usually associated with a variety of extra-pulmonary manifestations. Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is one such entity that has been scarcely studied in Indian patients. Availability of a good screening marker may help in timely detection of this co morbidity in COPD patients. We conducted a cross sectional study to evaluate the prevalence of MetS among COPD patients and to evaluate the role of Interleukin-6 and insulin resistance (as measured by HOMA-IR) as screening markers for Met...

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTSix Minute Walk Test (6MWT) is a field exercise test widely used in clinical practice, both in adults and in pediatric patients. The primary aim of the study is to evaluate the physical performance of the subjects and compare them with the predicted Italian values. The secondary aim is to verify the possible relationship between the 6MWT distance (6MWD) and the clinical variables of the sample. Italian children between 6-11 years affected by CF were recruited from 9 regional centres for CF. Short questionnaire assessments abo...
