Evrim Eylem Akpinar, MD, and colleagues studied all admissions for acute exacerbations
of COPD at one hospital in Turkey over a 2-year period.
Conclusion: Vitamin D was efficacious in bronchial asthma in terms of prevention in number of exacerbations
when added to standard treatment.
The studies were designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of mepolizumab as add-on therapy in the reduction of moderate to severe COPD exacerbations
in patients at high risk of exacerbations
and to identify the patients with COPD most likely to respond to treatment using blood eosinophils (a type of white blood cell known to play a role in some inflammatory diseases) as a biomarker.
USA], Sep 02 ( ANI ): Breastfeeding may help prevent children's asthma exacerbations
later in life, recent study suggests.
With disease development, marked by decay in FEV1, patients grow systemic significances and became prone to infectious exacerbations
which are precipitated by concomitants vitamin D deficiency.
Low risk of exacerbation
is defined as no more than one exacerbation
not resulting in hospital admission in the last 12 months; high risk of exacerbation
is defined as at least two exacerbations
or any exacerbations
resulting in hospital admission in the last 12 months.
Several factors have been considered as predictors of COPD exacerbations
in the past.
The rate of exacerbations
also did not differ between acetaminophen and ibuprofen in the subgroup of 226 children who completed the entire trial or in the subgroup of 200 who received a study medication for pain or fever at least once during follow-up, Dr.
Other risk factors for exacerbation
included previous asthma exacerbations
For high-risk patients, this higher dose of NAC at 600 mg twice daily significantly reduced the exacerbation
frequency at 8 and 12 months, a prolonged amount of time until the first exacerbation
and an increased probability of having no exacerbations
at 1 year, compared with placebo.
in chinese patients with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection.
Objective: To determine whether endogenous carbon monoxide levels in exacerbations
of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease patients were higher compared to healthy individuals and to investigate alteration of carbon monoxide levels across the three different severity stages of Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease criteria related to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease exacerbations
of COPD are independently associated with mortality, (2) regardless of baseline severity.
1]% predicted or prior history of exacerbations
COPD sufferers are prone to acute exacerbations
of their condition which contribute greatly to morbidity and mortality associated with the condition.
