Stratified approaches to the treatment of asthma

  • S. Holgate
  • Medicine, Biology
    British journal of clinical pharmacology
  • 2013
A novel stratified approach to asthma treatment is reviewed, based upon identification of causal pathways, with a focus on biologics, to provide a new way of looking at asthma diagnosis and management.

Asthma in electronic health records : validity and phenotyping

This PhD thesis explores the validation of asthma in electronic health records (EHR) and the characteristics of asthma phenotypes in the UK using CPRD GOLD, HES and ONS data. The absence of a

Ancient Greek medicine as the foundation of contemporary medicine

The main attribute of As Clepius, a physician’s staff with an Asclepian snake wrapped around it, survives to this day as the symbol of the modern medical profession.


Cl cloning and characterization of novel carbonic anhydrase transcripts from the larval Anopheles gambiae alimentary canal are reported, and an alternate pathway for bicarbonate/carbonate transport into the lumen of theAlimentary canal is revealed, updating the current model for larval pH regulation.

What's in a name? Bence Jones protein

Some insights are provided into the history of this commonly used eponym and its use in clinical practice and aim to put it into context.

From “Occupational” to “Industrial”: Issue 1 of the AMA Archives of Industrial Health, January 1955

  • 2011
The 1950s can be remembered as a time of changing nomenclature, a period when the word “occupational” began replacing the word“industrial” as the field sought to change its focus from employers and industry to the broader needs of workers.

Next generation beta adrenoreceptor agonists for the treatment of asthma

This review focuses on the currently available evidences on the clinical role of any single ultra-LABAs in the treatment of asthmatic patients and concludes that no ultra-LABA+ICS may be recommended as preferred.


Research was performed to characterize discarded household medication disposal in municipal solid waste (MSW) and the fate of selected pharmaceuticals in landfills and the quantity and characteristics of pharmaceutical compounds entering MSW.

Hayek and Lachmann

Friedrich Hayek was a scholar of uncommon breadth and depth whose work will be the subject of study and discovery for a long time to come. The span of his career makes it difficult, probably



GenMAPP, a new tool for viewing and analyzing microarray data on biological pathways

A free stand-alone computer program designed for viewing and analyzing gene expression data in the context of biological pathways, GenMAPP (Gene Microarray Pathway Profiler), which complements the current pathway databases by providing a means of freely exchanging pathway-related data among investigators.

Genetically modified mice and their use in developing therapeutic strategies for prostate cancer.

This review focuses on transgenic mouse models for elucidating the molecular and cellular processes that lead to prostate cancer initiation, progression and metastasis, and on their suitability for therapeutic and chemopreventive trials.

Proteomic analysis of active multiple sclerosis lesions reveals therapeutic targets

In vivo administration of hirudin or recombinant activated protein C reduced disease severity in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis and suppressed Th1 and Th17 cytokines in astrocytes and immune cells.

Protective and therapeutic role for αB-crystallin in autoimmune demyelination

It is demonstrated that CRYAB is a potent negative regulator acting as a brake on several inflammatory pathways in both the immune system and central nervous system (CNS), and the immune response against a negative regulator of inflammation,CRYAB, in multiple sclerosis, would exacerbate inflammation and demyelination.

Stathmin: A Relay Protein in the Development of Prostate Cancer and a Potential Target for Anti-Cancer Therapy

The purpose of this work is to correlate stathmin overexpression with progression of prostate cancer, determine the signaling pathways activated through selective phosphorylation of stathmine and weather inactivation of these pathways promotes sensitization to treatment with Taxotere or Erbitux.

The Influence of the Proinflammatory Cytokine, Osteopontin, on Autoimmune Demyelinating Disease

Osteopontin appears to regulate T helper cell–1 (TH1)–mediated demyelinating disease, and it may offer a potential target in blocking development of progressive MS.

Life-span perspectives on health and illness

This chapter discusses the role of environmental influences on childhood health and disease, as well as some Considerations on Integrating Psychology and Health From a Life-Span Perspective.

Investigation of a second 15S-lipoxygenase in humans and its expression in epithelial tissues.

For the past two decades it had appeared that the three enzymes could account for all known lipoxygenase activities in man, but subsequent metabolism studies and molecular analyses indicated the occurrence of the same enzymes in selected other tissues.
