Nutrition Matters When It Comes to Asthma Risk
Not having access to fruits and vegetables puts children at higher risk for asthma, according to a new study.
Researchers have proposed three key risk factors for transmission and acquisition of carbapenemase-producing carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae.
One year after the November 2015 FDA approval of mepolizumab (Nucala, GlaxoSmithKline) to treat severe asthma with eosinophilic phenotype, a review considers how initial studies missed its effectiveness, the subsequent evidence that supported its utility, and possible future applications.
For many years, there were no good treatments for patients with pulmonary hypertension. That has changed recently, but there is still much more work to be done.
Unlike other conditions, pulmonary hypertension has symptoms that can be hard to identify in order to give the patients the right diagnosis. Misdiagnosis can not only worsen the symptoms, but also make treatment that much harder in the long run.
For cardiologists, treating a patient with hypertension is becoming a more common and less complicated effort. However, a similar condition, called pulmonary hypertension, is not nearly as well understood, managed, or treated.
The search for newer antimicrobial agents is a focus of those looking to help prevent patients from developing potentially dangerous conditions while admitted to the hospital.
In many hospitals there is a consistent effort to monitor how patients are responding to various treatments. This can be done at different increments which can determine in some cases how effective treatments are against pathogens which can affect a patients' health.
There are more and more challenges facing patients and doctors in hospital settings as "superbugs," or those conditions which are resistant to medications and antibiotics become a greater problem.
