MEK1/2 as a Therapeutic Target in Sickle Cell Disease

Rahima Zennadi

Article Type: Short review | First Published: April 04, 2019

Identification of novel therapeutic targets has improved diagnostics and treatment of many diseases. Many innovative treatment strategies have been developed based on the newly identified biomarkers and key molecules. Most of the research focused on ways to manipulate signaling pathways by activating or suppressing them, validate new therapeutic targets for treatment, and epigenetic treatment of diseases. With the identification of aberrations in multiple growth pathways, the focus then shifted to the small molecules involved in these pathways for targeted therapy. In this communication/short ...

Forced Mid-Expiratory Flow Can Predict Ventilatory Limitation and Exercise Capacity

Mandeep Hundal, Christian Ghattas, Lori Lyn Price, Peter Lacamera and John Unterborn

Article Type: Original Research Article | First Published: April 03, 2019

Exercise limitation associated with most lung diseases is multifactorial and is due to complex interactions between impaired ventilatory, cardiovascular, and peripheral muscle responses. Cardiopulmonary exercise tests (CPETs) are often required to ascertain the primary cause of exercise limitation particularly in patients with multiple co-morbidities. CPETs are generally offered only at tertiary care medical centers. To evaluate if forced expiratory flow from 25% to 75% of vital capacity (FEF25-75%) can be used to predict both reduced exercise capacity and ventilatory limitation to exercise......

Long-Term Clinical and Echocardiographic Outcome in Patients with CRT and Functional Mitral Regurgitation: MitraClip versus Optimal Medical Therapy

Arianna Cirasa, MD, Antonio Popolo Rubbio, MD, Paolo Zappulla, MD, Angelo Di Grazia, MD, Daniela Dugo, MD, Salvatore Scandura, MD, Sarah Mangiafico, MD, Carmelo Grasso, MD, Corrado Tamburino, MD, PhD, Davide Capodanno, MD, PhD and Valeria Calvi, MD, PhD

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: April 03, 2019

This study sought to evaluate the clinical outcome in cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) patients with residual moderate-to-severe functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) who underwent percutaneous treatment with the Mitraclip System or were managed with medical therapy alone. Significant FMR can persist in 20-25% of patients after CRT and its management can be a challenge, due to the advanced heart failure (HF) and a variety of concomitant comorbidities. From a single center, two different groups of patients with CRT (MitraClip and no-MitraClip group) were compared. Clinical follow-up was ...

Allergic rhinitis is a major chronic respiratory disease that affects between 10% and 30% of adults and up to 40% of children globally. The purpose of this study was to understand the impact of allergic rhinitis and subsequent GRAZAX grass allergy immunotherapy (AIT) treatment on adults' and adolescents' quality of life. Clinicians treating allergic rhinitis in the Netherlands and Germany recruited adults and adolescents who had received at least 3 years of GRAZAX® treatment. Telephone interviews were conducted with patients to explore their experience of allergic rhinitis and AIT. Interview ...

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: March 30, 2019

Substantial proportions of new HIV infections in sub-Saharan Africa are associated with herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) infection hence the magnitude of infection in the population suggests the expected course of HIV epidemic. We determined prevalence of genital herpes as a result of HSV-2 and its associated factors among pregnant women in Nigeria. A total of 2,362 sera of pregnant women aged 18-49 years attending two different antenatal clinics in two communities in Nigeria were analysed using ELISA specific for IgG antibodies to HSV-2 (Kalon Biological Ltd, U.K). HIV antibodies were scre...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 30, 2019

Fire brigade sport is a common sport in parts of Europe, with a growing body of popularity. In sports science, no research has been carried out in this field up to date. In consequence, there are no structures for talent scouting in firefighting sports. "100 m obstacle course" is one out of the four disciplines in this sport. For an efficient scouting of talents and training in general the necessa...
