Allergy study on 'wild' mice challenges the hygiene hypothesis

2023-09-29
The notion that some level of microbial exposure might reduce our risk of developing allergies has arisen over the last few decades and has been termed the hygiene hypothesis. Now, an article published in Science Immunology by researchers from Karolinska Institutet challenges this hypothesis by showing that mice with high infectious exposures from birth have the same, if not an even greater ability to develop allergic immune responses than 'clean' laboratory mice. How microbes may prevent allergy has been a topic of great interest in recent times. Studies have suggested that certain infections might reduce the production of inflammatory antibodies to ...

Atopic dermatitis: Viruses discovered as new therapy option

2023-09-29
Up to 15 percent of children and five percent of adults are affected by the chronic inflammatory skin disease atopic dermatitis. Despite advanced therapy measures, the severe itching and eczema, especially on the elbows or knees, cause great distress to the patients. In the course of a study conducted at MedUni Wien a research team led by Wolfgang Weninger, Head of the Department of Dermatology, has discovered a new approach: bacteriophages, which colonize the skin as viral components of the microbiome and can drive the development of innovative ...

Larger lymph node threshold optimizes nasopharyngeal carcinoma outcomes
2023-09-29
Leesburg, VA, September 29, 2023—According to the American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR), using a 6-mm threshold, rather than a 5-mm threshold, helps facilitate better risk stratification and treatment decisions in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). “Future American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging updates should consider incorporation of the 6-mm threshold for N-category and tumor-stage determinations,” wrote corresponding author Zhiying Liang, MD, from the radiology department at China’s Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center. This AJR accepted manuscript by Liang et al. included ...

Cleveland Clinic researchers develop new model for prioritizing lung transplant candidates

2023-09-29
September 29, 2023, CLEVELAND: A team from Cleveland Clinic has developed a new model for prioritizing patients waiting for a lung transplant, aimed at improving outcomes and reducing deaths among those in need of donor lungs. The new method offers an improved strategy for organ allocation by taking into account how the time a patient has spent on the waiting list could impact the severity of their disease and the urgency of their need for a transplant. The results of a study looking at this new method were published today in The American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. Currently, ...
