    Low socioeconomic status relates to asthma and wheeze, especially in women.

    The different indicators of socioeconomic status illustrated various aspects of associations between low socioeconomic status (SES) and asthma and wheeze, and the most prominent associations were found among women.

    Low socioeconomic status (SES) has been associated with asthma and wheezing. Occupational group, educational level and income are commonly used indicators for SES, but no single indicator can illustrate the entire complexity of SES. The aim was to investigate how different indicators of SES associat...

    Response to mepolizumab treatment is sustained across 4-weekly dosing periods.

    The response to mepolizumab is sustained over the 4-weekly dosing period with no differences across a 10-fold dose range and supports the use of the current mepolizumab dosing regimen in patients with severe eosinophilic asthma.

    Background Mepolizumab (100 mg delivered s.c. every 4 weeks) is indicated for add-on maintenance treatment for patients with severe eosinophilic asthma. Mepolizumab has been shown to reduce exacerbations and the requirement for daily oral corticosteroids, and improve asthma control and symptoms. H...

    Personalised exhaled nitric oxygen fraction (FENO)-driven asthma management in primary care: a FENO subgroup analysis of the ACCURATE trial

    In primary care, FENO-driven asthma management is effective in patients with a low FENO level, for whom it is possible to down-titrate medication, while preserving asthma control and quality of life.

    Background The aim of this study was to identify patients who benefit most from exhaled nitric oxide fraction ( F ENO)-driven asthma management in primary care, based on prespecified subgroups with different levels of F ENO. Methods We used data from 179 adults with asthma from a 12-month primary ca...

    Predictors of massive haemoptysis after a first episode of mild-to-moderate haemoptysis in patients with cystic fibrosis.

    Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA), metabolic disorders, such as diabetes, and recurrent mild-to-moderate haemoptysis may predict massive haemoptysis (MH) occurrence in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients with at least one mild-to-moderate haemoptysis episode.

    The main cause of death of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients is respiratory disease due to secondary infections, haemoptysis, pneumothorax, and respiratory failure [1]. In a study of 129 French CF patients who died between 2007 and 2010 without receiving lung transplantation, 8.5% of deaths were due to....

    Dramatic Clinical Improvement in Nine Consecutive Acutely Ill Elderly COVID-19 Patients Treated with a Nicotinamide Mononucleotide Cocktail: A Case Series.

    Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) - a coenzyme found in every cell in the human body - is involved in hundreds of critical metabolic processes. However, as humans age, intracellular NAD+ levels decrease - this depletion appears to be exacerbated during complicated SARS-COV-2 infections. NAD+ depletion impairs our antiviral defense systems and our ability to optimally control inflammation. The NMN cocktail resulted in rapid and dramatic clinical and laboratory improvement in older persons with complicated SARS-CoV-2 infections.

    Coughs and Sneezes: Their Role in Transmission of Respiratory Viral Infections, Including SARS-CoV-2

    The slogan “Coughs and Sneezes Spread Diseases” was coined in the United States during the last great flu pandemic between 1918 and 1920 to highlight the role of coughs and sneezes in disseminating respiratory pathogens. A cough produces approximately 3,000 droplets, whereas a sneeze releases an...

    Recent reports have demonstrated a decline in IgG neutralizing antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in convalescence, raising concerns of susceptibility to reinfection. But antibody levels always decline after the acute phase of infection, and after the reduction, serological memory is maintained by a smaller number of long-lived plasma cells that reside in the bone marrow and that secrete antibody in the absence of antigen. Antibody recall responses come from this pool of long-lived memory B cells. .https://ja.ma/3bYRBHS

    This Viewpoint reviews what is known about acute and long-term B-cell, antibody, and T-cell responses to SARS-CoV-2 infection and explains how each are implicated in vaccine candidates likely to be effective and durably protective again COVID-19.

    Great to see this paper. Pregnancy does not impact CF disease progression even in severe disease.

    Over the past decades advances in Cystic fibrosis (CF) patient care have led to an improvement in patient survival, with the majority of patients reaching adulthood [1]. This improvement was accompanied by an increase in the quality of life [2]. One result of these changes in longevity, and quality....
