Why Is Mining-Related Lung Disease on the Rise?

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 15:55:37 EST

The passage of critical mine health and safety legislation in the late 1960s, along with advances in technology and safety practices, helped to decrease the prevalence of lung diseases for miners. But starting in the mid-1990s, there was a significant documented increase in lung diseases among coal workers, especially among younger workers.

Women Who Clean at Home or Work Face Increased Lung Function Decline

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 00:05:00 EST

(image) Women who work as cleaners or regularly use cleaning sprays or other cleaning products at home appear to experience a greater decline in lung function over time than women who do not clean, according to new research published online in the American Thoracic Society's American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.

Asthma Medication Linked to Infertility in Women

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 09:00:32 EST

Women with asthma who only use short-acting asthma relievers take longer to become pregnant than other women, according to international research led by the University of Adelaide.

Leading Cancer Organizations Provide Guidance on Understanding and Managing Immunotherapy Side Effects

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 10:00:00 EST

(image) New guidelines developed collaboratively by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network(r) (NCCN(r)) offer clinicians much needed recommendations for assessment and management of side effects related to immune checkpoint inhibitors.

A Little Preparation Means Sending Your Allergic Camper Off with Confidence This Summer

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 08:00:02 EST

(image) 5 tips from the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology for parents who'd like to send their child with allergies or asthma to summer camp, and still keep them safe.

LJI researchers reveal how to undermine immune cell mobilization in allergic inflammation.

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 12:00:00 EST

(image) LJI researchers report mechanisms used by a subgroup of ILCs, known as ILC2 cells, to undergo maturation required for them to mount an effective immune response. These discoveries suggest a novel approach to treat inflammatory disease caused by overactive ILC2s.

Opioid Use Increases Risk Of Serious Infections

Mon, 12 Feb 2018 17:00:00 EST

Opioid users have a significantly increased risk of infections severe enough to require treatment at the hospital, such as pneumonia and meningitis, as compared to people who don't use opioids.

Engineers Use Natural Protein as Nanoshuttle for Anti-Cancer Vaccines

Mon, 05 Feb 2018 07:05:55 EST

(image) Clinical application of cancer fighting nanovaccines has been hampered by complications in large-scale manufacturing, quality control, and safety. Biomedical engineers developed nanovaccines that bind to the albumin protein naturally present in the body. The albumin protein then delivers these nanocomplexes to the lymph nodes, resulting in potent immune activation against multiple tumor types in mouse cancer models. The use of natural albumin as a universal vaccine shuttle is a significant step towards the application of cancer nanovaccine immunotherapy in humans.

New Explanation for Why Airways Close in Asthma Holds Promise for Future Class of Drugs

Wed, 31 Jan 2018 14:05:06 EST

Houston Methodist researchers have a new explanation for what causes the lungs' airways to close during asthma attacks. The researchers who published the study in the Feb. 5 issue of the Journal of Experimental Medicine note that the discovery holds promise for developing a new class of drugs different from the steroids currently used to treat asthma.

For Children with Respiratory Infections, Antibiotics with Narrower Targets Are Better

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 15:05:08 EST

(image) A study of 30,000 children with earaches, strep throat and other common infections found that narrow-spectrum antibiotics had fewer adverse effects than broad-spectrum antibiotics. A more selective approach is better, said researchers.

Expert Panel Issues New Guidelines for Lung Cancer Molecular Testing

NCCN Imaging Appropriate Use Criteria Endorsed by Intermountain Healthcare and Will be Included in the Intermountain AUC for Lung Cancer

Thu, 25 Jan 2018 11:15:00 EST

Intermountain Healthcare has endorsed the The National Comprehensive Cancer Network(r) (NCCN(r)) Imaging Appropriate Use Criteria (NCCN Imaging AUC(tm)). Intermountain will aggregate the NCCN AUC for lung cancer with its own AUC and utilize the content for decision support.
