Exercise-induced anaphylaxis (EIA) and food-dependent, exercise-induced anaphylaxis (FDEIA) are rare but potentially life-threatening clinical syndromes in which association with exercise is crucial. The range of triggering physical activities is broad, including as mild an effort as a stroll. EIA is not fully repeatable (ie, the same exercise may not(More)

INTRODUCTION Chronic non-asthmatic cough (CC) is a clinical challenge and underlying pathophysiological mechanisms remain still not completely understood. One of the most common comorbidities in CC is gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD). Airway epithelium damage can contribute to airway inflammation in CC. AIMS We studied airway inflammation in(More)
Food-dependent, exercise-induced anaphylaxis triggered by coincidence of culprit food, physical effort and a very high dose of ibuprofen or menstruation: a case report Food-dependent exercise-induced anaphylaxis (FDEIA) is defined as anaphylaxis resulting from coincidence of ingestion of sensitizing food and physical activity, while any of those factors(More)
We appreciate Maniscalco and Motta's comments on our recently published article ''Fusion of the 1 H NMR data of serum, urine and exhaled breath condensate in order to discriminate chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome'' (Zabek et al. 2015) and we are grateful for the opportunity to clarify a number of points from our(More)
