FeNO as a Marker of Airways Inflammation: The Possible Implications in Childhood Asthma Management
TLDR
The data show that FeNO measurements, might be a very useful additional parameter for management of asthma, which is able to avoid unnecessary inhaled corticosteroid and antileukotrienes therapies, however, mantaining a treatment sufficient to obtain a meaningful improvement of asthma is difficult. Expand
Vitamin D Supplementation Modulates the Immune System and Improves Atopic Dermatitis in Children
TLDR
This study showed vitamin D supplementation to be an effective treatment in reducing AD severity in children through normalization of the Th1 and Th2 interleukin serum pattern. Expand
Anticonvulsant drugs and hematological disease
TLDR
This review investigates hematological effects associated with classic and newer AEDs, using a PubMed search indexed for MEDLINE to identify studies in adults, children and animals using the name of all anticonvulsant drugs combined with the terms “hematological disease” and ”hematological abnormalities” as key words. Expand
Topiramate-induced weight loss: A review
TLDR
TPM can make nutritionally vulnerable children or adult patients, with epilepsy associated with other neuropsychiatric diseases, who cannot voluntarily increase their caloric intake, and makes TPM a good choice, especially in obese patients suffering from seizures. Expand
Growth failure in children with cystic fibrosis
TLDR
The aims of this review are to explain etiology and pathogenetic mechanisms of growth failure in CF children and clarify their role in the disease morbidity and in clinical outcome, especially in relation to progressive decline of pulmonary function. Expand
Evaluation of association between airway hyperresponsiveness, asthma control test, and asthma therapy assessment questionnaire in asthmatic children
TLDR
Both questionnaires are not sufficient alone to fully evaluate asthma control in children and it is always necessary to perform functional tests and investigate patients lifestyle, drug use and other important data that a simple questionnaire is not able to point out. Expand
Developmental neurotoxicity and anticonvulsant drugs: a possible link.
TLDR
The aim of this review is to explore the possible link between AEDs and neurodevelopmental dysfunctions both in human and in animal studies and the possible mechanisms underlying this association. Expand
Relationship between Exercise-Induced Bronchospasm (EIB) and Asthma Control Test (ACT) in Asthmatic Children
TLDR
It must be stated that ACT alone is not sufficient to evaluate asthma control in children correctly because it fails to detect EIB in a significant percentage of subjects. Expand
Usefulness of nBos d 4, 5 and nBos d 8 Specific IgE Antibodies in Cow's Milk Allergic Children
TLDR
This study suggested 2 phenotypes of allergic children, "high-anaphylaxis-risk" and "milder-risk", which can be differentiated through measuring the level of IgE to nBos d 8. Expand
Pathogenesis and Clinical Approaches to Anticonvulsant Hypersensitivity Syndrome: Current State of Knowledge
TLDR
Evidence suggests that AHS is the result of a chemotoxic and immunologically-mediated injury, characterized by skin and mucosal bioactivation of antiepileptic drugs and by major histocompatibility complex-dependent clonal expansion of T cells. Expand
