Allergen-specific immunotherapy (allergen-SIT) is a highly effective treatment for children with allergic asthma (AA), an immune-mediated chronic disease leading to bronchial muscle hypertrophy and airway obstruction in response to specific allergens. T helper cells and secreted cytokines play important roles in the pathogenesis of asthma, and epigenetic(More)
BACKGROUND Allergic asthma is a T(H)2 inflammatory disease. Dendritic cells (DCs) play key roles in the T(H)1/T(H)2 balance. Allergen specific immunotherapy (SIT) has the potential to modify the course of allergy because the ratio of T(H)1 to T(H)2 cytokines produced is increased after SIT. OBJECTIVE To determine how SIT affects DCs in children and to(More)
Nebulized hypertonic saline (HS) treatment reduced the length of hospitalization in infants with acute bronchiolitis in a previous meta-analysis. However, there was no reduction in the admission rate. We hypothesized that nebulized HS treatment might significantly decrease both the duration and the rate of hospitalization if more randomized controlled(More)
BACKGROUND The most readily available methods for testing serum total bilirubin in neonates are the capillary tube-directed optics color method and serum biochemistry. Because inconsistency between these two methods may cause confusion in clinical practice, this study was designed to quantify their differences. METHODS In 46 neonates with clinical(More)
BACKGROUND Microbiological data of secondary wound infections following snakebites is rarely reported in Taiwan. The objective of this study was to assess the secondary wound infection after venomous snakebites. METHODS We conducted a 10-year retrospective survey on patients admitted for venomous snakebites and microbiological data of wound cultures at a(More)
