Linking cross-reactivity clusters of food and respiratory allergens in PAMD@ to asthma and duration of allergy

By |2020-12-17T19:36:38+00:00December 17th, 2020|

Abstract Background Component resolved diagnosis, recently redefined as precision allergy medicine diagnosis — PAMD@, may help understanding allergic cross-reactivity patterns among polysensitized patients and their clinical implication. Objective We aimed to investigate similarities among allergens by empirically determining the occurrence of co-sensitization patterns and to relate them to clinical features, in particular to asthma.   [...]

Influence of ventilation use and occupant behaviour on surface microorganisms in contemporary social housing

By |2020-12-17T19:36:38+00:00December 17th, 2020|

Abstract In the context of increasingly airtight homes, there is currently little known about the type and diversity of microorganisms in the home, or factors that could affect their abundance, diversity and nature. In this study, we examined the type and prevalence of cultivable microorganisms at eight different sites in 100 homes of older adults [...]

Women with DCIS at increased risk for breast cancer death

By |2020-12-17T19:36:36+00:00December 17th, 2020|

Treatment for women with a type of early breast cancer called ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) might not be doing enough to prevent deaths from the disease, says a study published online Sept. 16, 2020, by JAMA Network Open. The study sought to determine whether women diagnosed with DCIS had a higher risk of dying from [...]

Patient-reported outcome measures after COVID-19: a prospective cohort study

By |2020-12-17T19:36:35+00:00December 17th, 2020|

Patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) are standardised validated questionnaires completed by patients to provide information on their perceived functional well-being and health status [1]. These questionnaires can address various aspects of health including symptoms, quality of life, functionality, and physical, mental and social well-being. PROMs play an important role in increasing patient engagement, improving health [...]

Physiological Redundancy and the Integrative Responses to Exercise

By |2020-12-17T19:36:33+00:00December 17th, 2020|

Abstract The biological responses to acute and chronic exercise are marked by a high level of physiological redundancy that operates at various levels of integration, including the molecular, cellular, organ-system, and whole-body scale. During acute exercise, this redundancy protects whole-body homeostasis in the face of 10-fold or more increases in whole-body metabolic rate. In some [...]

By |2020-12-17T19:36:28+00:00December 17th, 2020|

Objectives To study total, processed, and unprocessed red meat in relation to risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) and to estimate the effects of substituting other protein sources for red meat with CHD risk. Design Prospective cohort study with repeated measures of diet and lifestyle factors. Setting Health Professionals Follow-Up Study cohort, United States, 1986-2016. [...]

What to do about pelvic organ prolapse

By |2020-12-17T19:36:25+00:00December 17th, 2020|

One of the most uncomfortable—and awkward—conditions that afflicts women is pelvic organ prolapse. Normally, the pelvic organs—the bladder, uterus, vagina, and rectum—are supported and held in place by a group of muscles and tissues called the pelvic floor. When these muscles weaken over time, the pelvic organs can droop down and bulge out of the [...]

It’s hard to jump out of bed for a great day when your muscles are stiff and your joints creaky. But you can change that by warming up and stretching before your feet ever touch the floor. “Stretching before getting out of bed can help wake up the body and improve the circulation. It can also [...]

Air pollution spikes linked to lower test results

By |2020-12-15T19:13:55+00:00December 15th, 2020|

Exposure to air pollution is linked to lower Maths and English test results amongst primary school children, according to a study led by researchers at the University of Utah.The researchers analysed the Maths and English test results of pupils at 156 primary schools in Salt Lake County in 2017. They then compared this to each [...]

“Super-Spreaders” and Person-to-Person Transmission of Andes Virus in Argentina

By |2020-12-15T19:13:54+00:00December 15th, 2020|

Abstract BACKGROUND From November 2018 through February 2019, person-to-person transmission of Andes virus (ANDV) hantavirus pulmonary syndrome occurred in Chubut Province, Argentina, and resulted in 34 confirmed infections and 11 deaths. Understanding the genomic, epidemiologic, and clinical characteristics of person-to-person transmission of ANDV is crucial to designing effective interventions.     Credit: CDC Read more… The post [...]
