Inhaled therapeutics company Breath Therapeutics reported on Monday the launch of the Phase 3 BOSTON clinical studies of L-CsA-i in patients with Bronchiolitis
Obliterans Syndrome (BOS), a devastating lung disease with high mortality following lung or allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
However, the clinical importance of MPV in RSV or other virus-related bronchiolitis
has not been clearly defined yet.
During their first year of life, around a third of children in the UK will develop bronchiolitis
- in which a virus causes inflammation of the small airways in the lungs (bronchioles).
A cough is one of the initial symptoms of bronchiolitis
As babies and young children have small, underdeveloped airways, they're more likely to get bronchiolitis
Symptoms and signs such as tachypnea, tachycardia, loss of appetite and fatigue, which are among the clinical findings of heart failure, can be seen in many patients diagnosed with bronchiolitis
. Differential diagnosis of heart failure may become more difficult in patients with accompanied pneumonia who manifest rales in pulmonary auscultation.
Gabrielle Freire, M.D., from the University of Toronto, and colleagues conducted a retrospective cohort study of previously healthy infants aged <12 months with bronchiolitis
to identify predictors of escalated care.
Onspira Therapeutics president and CEO, Brian Lortie, said, 'We are very pleased that FDA granted Orphan Drug Designation to OSP-101 for the treatment of Bronchiolitis
Methodology: We included 76 children having age less than 2 years who presented with acute bronchiolitis
in Emergency Department of Nishtar Hospital, Multan, from September 2016 to April 2107.
SYMPTOMS: A young child with bronchiolitis
can present with a few different types of symptoms in addition to those usually seen with respiratory viruses, such as runny nose and cough.
HEALTH NOTES: BRONCHIOLITIS
is the most common cause of hospital visits during infancy - one in three babies develops bronchiolitis
in the first year of their life.
Almost 30,000 children require a hospital admission for respiratory syncytial virus, which causes bronchiolitis
, every year.
is the most frequent diagnosis for a winter admission of an infant to a community hospital.
Introduction: Acute bronchiolitis
, is a predominantly a viral disease, part of the spectrum of lower respiratory tract diseases, is a major cause of illness and hospitalization in infants and children younger than two years.
