Flavonoids inhibit histamine release and expression of proinflammatory cytokines in mast cells
The pharmacological actions of these flavonoids suggest their potential activity for treatment of allergic inflammatory diseases through the down-regulation of mast cell activation.
Transient Left Ventricular Dysfunction After Percutaneous Patent Ductus Arteriosus Closure in Children
The results of this study suggest that serial assessments of ventricular function are needed after PDA occlusion in patients with high Qp/Qs and Pp/Ps ratios, and larger amounts of pre-closure left-to-right shunting and higher pulmonary artery pressure were associated with an increased likelihood of FS <29% after closure.
Cytokine response in pediatric patients with pandemic influenza H1N1 2009 virus infection and pneumonia: Comparison with pediatric pneumonia without H1N1 2009 infection
Correlations between cytokine levels and clinical/laboratory findings in pediatric patients with pandemic influenza H1N1 2009 virus infection‐pneumonia and in children with pneumonia but without H 1N1 infection are examined.
Left Ventricular Function in Children and Adolescents With Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus
Background and Objectives Adult studies have reported that patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) show ultrastructural and functional myocardial deterioration. The aim of this study was to assess
Allose gallates suppress expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines through attenuation of NF-kappaB in human mast cells.
Three gallotannins from EUPHORBIA species may have potential for the treatment of inflammatory diseases through the down-regulation of NF-kappaB-mediated activation of mast cells.
Rare combination of dextrocardia with right-sided Poland syndrome.
This work reports and discusses the combination of right-sided Poland syndrome and dextrocardia, a rare combination that previous reports suggested may be part of the left sided Poland syndrome.

There was a weak positive correlation between the patient's total ALTE criteria and total significant intervention score, but not statistically significant, and it is recommended that all ALTE infants undergo inpatient observation and evaluations with at least 24 hr of cardiorespiratory monitoring, and should follow up at least within a month after discharge.
Comparison between Kawasaki disease with lymph-node-first presentation and Kawasaki disease without cervical lymphadenopathy
KD should be suspected in children who are unresponsive to antibiotics and have prolonged fever and cervical lymphadenopathy, which indicates that KD is associated with the likelihood of requiring second-line treatment and risk of developing coronary artery dilatation.
Clinical features and surgical outcomes of complete transposition of the great arteries
The study showed favorable results in all the groups and no significant difference in postoperative complication, reoperation, and mortality among the groups, but results were inadequate to evaluate the risk factors for reoperation and mortality owing to the small number of patients and short follow-up duration.
The Impact of Moderate-Dose Acetylsalicylic Acid in the Reduction of Inflammatory Cytokine and Prevention of Complication in Acute Phase of Kawasaki Disease: The Benefit of Moderate-Dose
It is suggested that moderate-dose ASA may be beneficial for the treatment of patients in the acute phase of KD, as different doses of ASA did not show any differences in changes of inflammatory bio-makers and cytokines.
