A comparison of two intensities of warfarin for the prevention of recurrent thrombosis in patients with the antiphospholipid antibody syndrome.
The low rate of recurrent thrombosis among patients in whom the target INR was 2.0 to 3.0 suggests that moderate-intensity warfarin is appropriate for patients with the antiphospholipid antibody syndrome.
Use of induced sputum cell counts to investigate airway inflammation in asthma.
Induced sputum is capable of detecting differences in cell counts between normal and asthmatic subjects and merits further development as a potential means of assessing airway inflammation in asthma.

The American College of Rheumatology nomenclature and case definitions for neuropsychiatric lupus syndromes.
The American College of Rheumatology Nomenclature for NPSLE provides case definitions for 19 neuropsychiatric syndromes seen in SLE, with reporting standards and recommendations for laboratory and imaging tests.
CHRONIC COUGH: EOSINOPHILIC BRONCHITIS WITHOUT ASTHMA
CD34+ hemopoietic progenitor cells are potent effectors of allergic inflammation.
Association of chronic urticaria and angioedema with thyroid autoimmunity.
The age and sex distribution and thyroid features of these 17 patients were similar to those described in autoimmune thyroiditis, and patients (especially women) with CUA should be tested for the presence of TMAs.
Anti-IL-5 (mepolizumab) therapy induces bone marrow eosinophil maturational arrest and decreases eosinophil progenitors in the bronchial mucosa of atopic asthmatics.

The data suggest that anti-IL-5 therapy might induce partial maturational arrest of the eosinophil lineage in the bone marrow, and the reduction in airway CD34(+)/IL- 5 mRNA(+) cell numbers suggests that IL-5 might also be required for local tissue eos inophilopoiesis.
Cognitive impairment in systemic lupus erythematosus: a neuropsychological study of individual and group deficits.
It is indicated that a variety of cognitive deficits are present in SLE patients taken together as a group and there is no significant association between cognitive impairment and emotional disturbance.
