Multiple groups of patients have been recognized for having high rates of non-responders to the Hepatitis B vaccine including those with HIV, inflammatory bowel disease, and chronic kidney disease. These patients are at increased risk for infection due to both the nature of their underlying diseases and the immunosuppressive drugs they are commonly prescribed. Identification of groups with high non-response rates is essential in order to establish vaccination guidelines and prevent serious infections in already susceptible patients...

Mast cells trigger IgE-mediated allergic reactions by releasing various allergic mediators. 8-Formyl-7-hydroxy-4-methylcoumarin, also called 4μ8C, was originally known as an inositol-requiring enzyme 1 (IRE1) suppressant, but no study has examined its relationship with mast cells and allergic diseases. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine whether 4μ8C is effective in suppressing allergic reactions in mast cells and in IgE-mediated allergic animal model. 4μ8C suppressed the degranulation of IgE-mediated mast cells (IC50=3...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies have indicated that serum levels of squamous cell carcinoma antigen (SCCA) 1 and 2 induced by type 2 cytokines such as IL-4 and IL-13, are increased in patients with atopic dermatitis (AD). However, no clinical studies have analyzed serum levels of SCCA2 in larger series of AD patients or their association with various clinical characteristics. This study was performed to clarify whether serum levels of SCCA2 are associated with disease severity and clinical phenotypes of adult AD patients...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Atopic dermatitis (AD) affects up to 20% of children. Although the majority of patients are adequately controlled using emollients, topical corticosteroids, topical calcineurin inhibitors, or phototherapy, children with moderate to severe AD may require systemic treatment for control. The objective of the current study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of methotrexate in children with severe AD attending a tertiary referral center. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was undertaken of all children who received methotrexate for severe AD at our tertiary referral center from November 2010 to August 2015...

BACKGROUND: Increased thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) serum concentration can be a marker of subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) or transient hyperthyrotropinemia. The aim of our study was to evaluate whether high serum TSH concentrations in allergic children could represent true SCH or isolated and transient hyperthyrotropinemia. METHODS: We enrolled 620 allergic children (1.11-12.8 years) consecutively attending to our department. They were classified as atopics and non-atopics on the basis of the atopy work-up and, at baseline, they were investigated for thyroid function and low-grade inflammation state...

Importance: Topical corticosteroid (TCS) phobia refers to the negative feelings and beliefs related to TCSs experienced by patients and patients' caregivers. This phenomenon may be a major contributing factor in treatment failure in patients with atopic dermatitis, yet it has been sparsely described in the literature. Objective: To systematically assess the nomenclature, prevalence, origins, and effect on treatment adherence of TCS phobia in atopic dermatitis. Evidence Review: A literature search was conducted using specific eligibility criteria across electronic databases, including Ovid (MEDLINE, EMBASE), PubMed, and Web of Science, for articles published from January 1, 1946, to October 31, 2016...

The concentration gradient of K(+) across the cell membrane of a neuron determines its resting potential and cell excitability. During neurotransmission, the efflux of K(+) from the cell via various channels will not only decrease the intracellular K(+) content but also elevate the extracellular K(+) concentration. However, it is not clear to what extent this change could be. In this study, we developed a multiple-parallel-connected silicon nanowire field-effect transistor (SiNW-FET) modified with K(+)-specific DNA-aptamers (aptamer/SiNW-FET) for the real-time detection of the K(+) efflux from cultured cortical neurons...
