OUTCOMES To compare the benefits of noninvasive ventilation (NIV) plus standard therapy vs. standard therapy alone in children with acute respiratory failure; assess method effectiveness in improving gas exchange and vital signs; and assess method safety. DESIGN Prospective, randomized, controlled study. SITE: Two pediatric intensive care units in(More)
S(1) is the most important locus acting as a reproductive barrier between Oryza sativa and O. glaberrima. It is a complex locus, with factors that may affect male and female fertility separately. Recently, the component causing the allelic elimination of pollen was fine mapped. However, the position and nature of the component causing female sterility(More)
In recent years, the evaluation of in utero exposure to drugs of abuse has been achieved by testing biological matrices coming from the fetus or newborn (eg, meconium, fetal hair, cord blood, neonatal urine), the pregnant or nursing mother (eg, hair, blood, oral fluid, sweat, urine, breast milk), or from both the fetus and the mother (placenta, amniotic(More)
BACKGROUND Strict avoidance is the only accepted management for cow's milk (CM) allergy. CM oral immunotherapy (CM-OIT) is under investigation. OBJECTIVES To evaluate long-term safety of CM-OIT. To identify clinical/immunological predictors of adverse events. METHODS Prospective longitudinal epidemiological intervention study. CM-allergic children aged(More)
BACKGROUND Accurate predictors of natural tolerance development to cooked and uncooked egg are needed in egg-allergic patients. OBJECTIVE To compare the diagnostic performance of different immunological tests in relation to egg allergy versus tolerance. METHODS Children aged 5-18 years diagnosed with IgE-mediated egg allergy were prospectively(More)
We report here the molecular and phenotypic features of a library of 31,562 insertion lines generated in the model japonica cultivar Nipponbare of rice (Oryza sativa L.), called Oryza Tag Line (OTL). Sixteen thousand eight hundred and fourteen T-DNA and 12,410 Tos17 discrete insertion sites have been characterized in these lines. We estimate that 8686(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of specific immunotherapy (SIT) management with allergoids in children with allergic asthma by monitoring changes in clinical parameters and inflammatory markers in exhaled breath. METHODS The study population included 43 patients (24 males) of 6-14 years of age, who had allergic asthma(More)
AIM To investigate the prevalence of in utero exposure to cannabis in a cohort of 974 mother-infants dyads from Barcelona (Spain). METHODS A validated gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric assay was used for meconium analysis. RESULTS Prenatal exposure to cannabis was detected in 5.3% newborns; however, only 1.7% of the participating mothers disclosed(More)
