BACKGROUND To verify the importance of Blomia tropicalis in atopic dermatitis (AD), we determined the cutaneous reactivity and the serum level of B. tropicalis-specific IgE and IgG subclasses in AD patients. METHODS B. tropicalis-specific IgE and IgG subclasses were determined in AD patients and compared with bronchial asthma (BA) patients and a control(More)
Patients with atopic dermatitis (AD) commonly develop antibodies of subclasses IgG and IgE to house dust mites, such as Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus and D. farinae. The domestic mite Blomia tropicalis is prevalent in Brazil and can cause the exacerbation of AD. The objectives of this study were to assess skin reactivity to B. tropicalis extracts of AD(More)
Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is a potentially preventable iatrogenic illness that may develop following mechanical ventilation. A bundle for the prevention of VAP consists of different measures which may vary between institutions, and may include: elevation of the head of the bed, oral care with chlorhexidine, subglottic suctioning, daily(More)
