  • miRNA – rola i znaczenie w astmie oskrzelowej

      Chronic inflammatory airway diseases, including asthma, are a significant health problem and previous treatment methods seem to be insufficient. There is a lack of effective therapies which are adjusted to treat all classes in terms of severity, and it is probably caused by insufficient understanding of molecular mechanisms involved in its occurrence. Small non-coding microRNA molecules in response to environmental factors lead to modulate gene expression. They regulate many processes associated with physiologic functions of the immune system. Researches showed crucial role of miRNA in pathogenesis of asthma and the other chronic inflammatory airway diseases. Despite the link of microRNA with pathogenesis of inflammatory airway diseases, the role of these molecules is still unclear. More detailed knowledge of the impact of miRNA molecules on the development of bronchial asthma would allow us to better understand the genesis process and might influence the effectiveness of the bronchial asthma treatment.

      Nasal allergen challenge represents, together with skin tests and specific IgE, one of the basic diagnostic tools used in allergology. The goals of the study were to evaluate types of allergens used, the clinical picture of the challenge, and its safety in our daily clinical practice. In total 136 challenges in 109 patients were analyzed. The study group included 60 women and 49 men, with an average age of 34 years. In 15 patients (13.8% of the study group), apart from allergic rhinitis, bronchial asthma was also diagnosed. Eighty-two patients (75.23%) were challenged with 1, and 27 subjects (24.77%) with 2 allergens. The majority of challenges were performed with house dust mites (58 challenges, 42.6%), followed by Alternaria, mugwort, grasses, birch, hazel, and alder. The clinical picture mimicked the symptoms reported after the natural exposure to the specific allergen. The mean score after the allergen challenge in the group with the positive result was 154.95 points (p <0.05 vs control solution), and in those with negative challenge 36.67 points. Side effects after the challenge, including itchy throat, cough, dyspnea and facial pruritus, were reported by 21 patients. None of side effects was serious or required any medical intervention. Among evaluated factors only female sex (OR 3.59, 95% CI 1.33–9.68, p =0.012), but not diagnosis of asthma, 2 challenges per day or the type of allergen used, was associated with a higher risk of adverse events. In conclusions, nasal allergen challenge represents safe and valuable diagnostic tool in our clinical practice.

      Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is an inflammatory disorder which affects mucosa of nasal cavity and sinuses and lasts for at least 12-week duration. Many studies exploring association between allergy and CRS have been conducted. The most frequent allergic diseases which co-exist with CRS are asthma, allergic rhinitis and aspirin intolerance. Appropriate therapy of CRS should include both severity of symptoms and histopathologic characteristics. Initial treatment should relay on pharmacological control of symptoms using intranasal steroids, local irrigations and systemic antibiotics. Surgical interventions are usually performed whenever initial therapy fails. Despite appropriate therapy symptoms of CRS tend to recur. Therefore patients with CRS should be systematically evaluated by allergists and laryngologists. New pharmacological options including biologics may allow for more effective treatment.

      To date, early effects of specific immune therapy on the parameters of adaptive immune responses in hymenoptera venom allergic patients remain unclear. Therefore, in this pilot study, we aimed to evaluate early changes in the levels of CD25 expression within CD4+ T cells occurring in the course of ultra-rush wasp venom immunotherapy. To this end, ten wasp venom-sensitive patients subjected to ultra-rush immune therapy were recruited for the study. CD4+ T cells and CD25 expression were assessed before the start of treatment, 24h later and on day 120 with the use of monoclonal antibodies directed at CD4, CD25 (IL-2 receptor) by the means of multi-color flow cytometry. We have demonstrated non-significant decrease in the intensity of CD25 expression on the surface of CD4+ T cells at day 1 but not day 120 of specific immune therapy. Our study suggests that putative early immunosuppressive mechanisms of SIT are not related to dramatic changes in the expression of CD25 on CD4+ T cells.

      Allergic rhinitis is a most common allergic disease affecting 40% of the population. The impact of AR on health-related quality of life (QoL) and productivity results in a significant economic burden. Allergen immunotherapy is the only causative treatment of allergic rhinitis and asthma. However, it is still unclear whether AIT is more cost-effective than the other treatments of AR without long-term cost-effectiveness studies. There is a need for further economic evaluations comparing different ways of immunotherapy and immunotherapy with pharmacotherapy.

      Background: The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of atopy and the influence of atopy on bacterial colonization of upper airway in children with adenoid hypertrophy. Material and methods: Forty children were enrolled in the prospective study. Presence of atopy was diagnosed by skin-prick test. Differences in bacterial colonization of middle nasal meatus and nasopharynx according to the presence of atopy were analyzed. Results: Atopy was diagnosed in 75% children with adenoid hypertrophy. Presence of atopy was associated with significantly more often colonization of pathogenic bacteria (Streptococcus pneumoniae, Hemophillus influaenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis, Staphylococcus aureus) in the middle nasal meatus but not in nasopharynx (P =0.045, P =0.483, respectively). Identification of pathogenic bacteria in middle nasal meatus did not correlate with isolation of pathogenic bacteria in nasopharynx in both groups of children. Conclusion: There is a high incidence of atopy in children with adenoid hypertrophy. Atopy is related to increased colonization by pathogenic bacteria in middle nasal meatus but not in nasopharynx.

      The increase of allergic diseases incidence has been noticed in industrialized countries. The reason for that is sought in increasing environment pollution and hygienisation of life. Diseases including asthma, hay fever, eczema and food allergies have dramatically increased over the last century. Microbiota (intestinal microflora) is a community of microorganisms, mainly bacteria that forms in the human digestive system a complex ecosystem. Recently more and more attention is paid to the connection of intestinal microflora with the occurrence of allergic diseases. Microbiota and the beneficial effects of probiotic bacteria on human health is becoming increasingly important in allergy development. However, the importance of probiotics in the prevention of these diseases has not been proven. It is a necessity to design and carry out thorough and detailed research to confirm significance of treatment with using probiotics strains.

      Exacerbations of COPD are associated with accelerated loss of lung function, declining health status, and increased mortality, and the key objective in the management of COPD is preventing exacerbations or at least reducing their number and severity. New interventions should be examined in reference to the minimal clinically important difference (MCID), a theoretical numerical value which reflects the real, felt by patients and perceived by physician as a meaningful change in measures describing patient's health status. The MCID for COPD exacerbations had been established and set on the level of 20% reduction in exacerbation frequency.

      Contemporary asthma treatment has been started with inhaled corticosteroids’ introduction to the common medical practice. Universal abundance of this kind of treatment completely changed the clinical picture of asthma and therefore these drugs permanently entered the treatment canon. Current attitude to asthma pharmacotherapy was shaped by the evidence based medicine paradigm. That time inhaled long acting beta 2 mimetics were launched as well. Today, still inhaled corticosteroids and long acting beta 2 mimetics are the mainstay asthma treatment. Beginning of the XXI century was the stormy entrance of the new personalized medicine paradigm and the crisis of the evidence-based medicine could be noticed as a result. These new concepts influence more and more the current asthma treatment. Especially the new biologics and pharmacotherapy tailored to individual patients needs will form the future of the medical behavior in this area.

      Allergen immunotherapy has a well-established role in the treatment of allergic rhinitis and conjunctivitis. Sublingual allergen immunotherapy seems to have a similar impact on symptoms and medication score as compared to classic, subcutaneous immunotherapy. Due to the fact that sublingual immunotherapy utilizes several approaches, in this review we are comparing clinical trials data for two of the most common allergen tablets, Grazax and Oralair. Based on these data we suggest that pre and co-seasonal treatment is efficient only when Oralair is prescribed, whereas Grazax should be used in only in an all-year-around manner in order to obtain clinical efficacy. Further, more well-designed clinical trials are needed to establish the pre and co-seasonal treatment efficacy with Grazax.

  • Bronchial allergen challenge – An old, but still useful tool in
           research and diagnostics

      A bronchial allergen challenge may serve both as a diagnostic as well as investigative procedure. Its usage in the diagnosis of asthma is infrequent due to its time-consuming nature as well as (in our opinion) an unfounded fear for a patient's safety. It is quite useful in the diagnostics of workplace related illnesses. Due to its ability to produce a controlled, long-lasting allergic-inflammatory reaction in the bronchi, this procedure is commonly used in research settings as well as in the assessment of new substances which may potentially have a place in the treatment of asthma, for ex. through the blocking of late asthmatic reactions. Changes stimulated by a bronchial allergen challenge may be evaluated by many methods using different materials, i.e. samples obtained from direct biopsies, bronchoalveolar lavages, exhaled breath condensates, or measured fractional exhaled nitric oxide. This procedure is a seemingly ideal research and diagnostic tool, however, a common protocol for its execution has not yet been accepted. Recent legal regulations have resulted in difficulties obtaining various allergens for challenge tests. Hopefully this is a temporary and minor setback for this very useful and constantly developing procedure.

      Action Plan B3 of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA) focuses on the integrated care of chronic diseases. Area 5 (Care Pathways) was initiated using chronic respiratory diseases as a model. The chronic respiratory diseases action plan involves AIRWAYS integrated care pathways (ICPs). It is deployed in collaboration with the WHO Global Alliance against Chronic Respiratory Diseases (GARD). The EIP on AHA has proposed a 5-step framework for developing an individual scaling up strategy: (i) what to scale up: (i-a) databases of good practices, (i-b) assessment of viability of the scaling up of good practices, (i-c) classification of good practices for local replication and (ii) how to scale up: (ii-a) facilitating partnerships for scaling up, (ii-b) implementation of key success factors and lessons learnt, including emerging technologies for individualised and predictive medicine. This strategy has already been applied to the chronic respiratory diseases action plan of the EIP on AHA.

      Allergic diseases are the most common chronic conditions lasting throughout the patient's life. They not only cause significant deterioration in the quality of life of patients but also lead to significant absenteeism and reduced productivity, resulting in very high costs for society. Effective and safe treatment of allergic diseases is therefore one of the main challenges for public health and should be carried out by all the specialists in family medicine, internists and paediatricians in collaboration with allergists, otorhinolaryngologists and dermatologists. Antihistamines are most commonly used in the treatment of allergies. Several dozen drugs are available on the pharmaceutical market, and their generic forms are advertised widely as very effective drugs for the treatment of allergic diseases. What is the truth' What are the data from clinical trials and observational studies' Are all drugs equally effective and safe for the patient' According to a panel of experts representing various fields of medicine, inappropriate treatment of allergies can be very risky for patients, and seemingly equally acting medications may differ greatly. Therefore, a panel of experts gathered the latest data from the entire scientific literature and analyzed the latest standards and recommendations prepared by scientific societies. This paper provides a summary of these studies and highlights the importance for the patient of the proper choice of drug to treat his allergies.
