Monoclonal Antibodies for Emerging Infectious Diseases ? Borrowing from History
31/12/69 - Although antibodies play pivotal roles in the immune response to infection, they have seen limited use as therapeutic agents for infectious diseases. Yet there is a long history of plasma-derived treatments for several pathogens. Emil Adolf von Behring, for example, won the Nobel Prize in…

Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndromes
31/12/69 - Autoimmune polyendocrine syndromes comprise a diverse group of clinical conditions characterized by functional impairment of multiple endocrine glands due to loss of immune tolerance. These syndromes also frequently include conditions such as alopecia, vitiligo, celiac disease, and autoimmune…

Quadrupling Inhaled Glucocorticoid Dose to Abort Asthma Exacerbations

Acute exacerbations of asthma are frightening for patients, cause considerable illness and death, and account for a large proportion of the overall costs related to asthma. Although plans for…

Quintupling Inhaled Glucocorticoids to Prevent Childhood Asthma Exacerbations

Often, these are linked to provocative factors such as viral…

Ambient Temperature and Screening for Nasopharyngeal Cancer
31/12/69 - To the Editor: Nasopharyngeal carcinoma is closely associated with Epstein?Barr virus (EBV) infection. In a recent prospective study involving more than 20,000 participants, detection of cancer-derived EBV DNA in plasma was shown to be useful in screening for nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Participants…

Antibody-Mediated Encephalitis
31/12/69 - Antibody-mediated encephalitides constitute a group of inflammatory brain diseases that are characterized by prominent neuropsychiatric symptoms and are associated with antibodies against neuronal cell-surface proteins, ion channels, or receptors (Table 1). Common clinical features include a change…

Despite advances in management, mortality driven by pulmonary involvement has not changed in 40 years. Although disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and biologics have…

Mepolizumab for Eosinophilic Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
31/12/69 - Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common disease characterized by progressive airflow obstruction, chronic inflammation in the lungs, and the occurrence of persistent symptoms and acute exacerbations. Up to 40% of patients with COPD have an eosinophilic phenotype, defined as a…
