For example, these infections increase immune responses, which drive subsequent asthma pathogenesis. Targeting the pathways involved with specific inhibitors or agonists may prevent these consequences of early-life infection.

We used these models to investigate the effects of clarithromycin and amoxicillin treatment on immune responses and airways hyper-responsiveness (AHR) in Ova-induced, T helper lymphocyte (Th) 2 -associated steroid-sensitive AAD and infection-induced Th1/Th17-associated SSIAAD compared with dexamethasone treatment. Results: Clarithromycin and amoxicillin had similar antimicrobial effects on infection. Amoxicillin did attenuate some features, but did not broadly suppress either form of AAD. It did restore steroid sensitivity in SSIAAD by reducing infection. In contrast, clarithromycin alone widely suppressed inflammation and AHR in both steroid-sensitive AAD and SSIAAD. This occurred through reductions in Th2 responses that drive steroid-sensitive eosinophilic AAD and tumour necrosis factor a and interleukin 17 responses that induce SSIAAD. Conclusions: Macrolides have broad anti-inflammatory effects in AAD that are likely independent of their antimicrobial effects. The specific responses that are suppressed are dependent upon the responses that dominate during AAD.]]> Mon 01 Feb 2016 10:43:55 EST ]]> Parents as partners in the treatment of adolescent Anorexia Nervosa: experiences and insights for practitioners Mon 01 Feb 2016 10:43:55 EST ]]> The expressionist Mon 01 Feb 2016 10:43:51 EST ]]> Phloem loading and unloading pathways in sorghum bicolor: the role of sucrose transporters in export and storage of sucrose Mon 01 Feb 2016 10:37:03 EST ]]> An examination of factors that influence Hong Kong students’ selection of local top-up bachelor degree programmes Mon 01 Feb 2016 10:36:56 EST ]]> Gac oil extraction and encapsulation by spray drying Mon 01 Feb 2016 10:36:56 EST ]]> The effect of azithromycin in adults with stable neutrophilic COPD: a double blind randomised, placebo controlled trial Mon 01 Feb 2016 10:36:49 EST ]]> Three faces of narcissism: the psychological measurement of the arrogant, shy, and psychopathic expressions of a grandiose but vulnerable self Mon 01 Feb 2016 10:29:56 EST ]]> Altered lung function at mid-adulthood in mice following neonatal exposure to hyperoxia 100/FVC.

Moreover, inhibition of miR-328 in respiratory models of infection, steroid-induced immunosuppression, and smoke-induced emphysema enhances bacterial clearance. Thus, miRNA pathways can be targeted in the lung to enhance host defence against a clinically relevant microbial infection and offer a potential new anti-microbial approach for the treatment of respiratory diseases.]]> Mon 01 Feb 2016 10:15:49 EST ]]> Radicalism in medicine: the Newcastle Medical School in the 1970s and 1980s Mon 01 Feb 2016 10:01:48 EST ]]> The placental protein syncytin-1 impairs antiviral responses and exaggerates inflammatory responses to influenza Mon 01 Feb 2016 09:54:52 EST ]]> Paternalism in Chinese business systems Mon 01 Feb 2016 09:23:38 EST ]]> Land reforms in Kerala: an aid to ensure sustainable development Mon 01 Feb 2016 09:19:57 EST ]]> Jørn Utzon's reverie of the eye: surfaces of the Sydney Opera House Mon 01 Feb 2016 08:44:50 EST ]]> A pathogenic role for tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease Fri 29 Jan 2016 17:03:24 EST ]]> Active control of car suspension systems using IDA-PBC Fri 29 Jan 2016 17:03:21 EST ]]> A web of fascination: Marxism and the Bible Fri 29 Jan 2016 17:03:21 EST ]]> PD-L1 promotes early-life chlamydia respiratory infection-induced severe allergic airway disease Fri 29 Jan 2016 17:03:17 EST ]]> COPD is characterized by increased detection of Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae and a deficiency of Bacillus species Bacillus species were identified compared with healthy controls. PCR analyses revealed increased rates of detection of potentially pathogenic bacteria with Haemophilus influenzae detection associated with higher sputum levels of NE and IL-1β, while Streptococcus pneumoniae was more common in male ex-smokers with emphysema and a deficit in diffusion capacity. Conclusion: Non-pathogenic and pathogenic bacteria were altered in the sputum of patients with COPD. These observations highlight the potential to identify treatment and management strategies that both target specific bacterial pathogens and restore the microbial balance, which may lead to reductions in inflammation and subsequent improvements in lung health.]]> Fri 29 Jan 2016 17:03:17 EST ]]> Mucosal production of uric acid by airway epithelial cells contributes to particulate matter-induced allergic sensitization in vivo, which did not occur with other challenges (lipopolysaccharide, virus, bacteria, or inflammatory/fibrotic stimuli). PM₁₀-induced uric acid mediates allergic sensitization and augments antigen-specific T-cell proliferation, which is inhibited by uricase. We then demonstrate that human airway epithelial cells secrete uric acid basally and after stimulation through a previously unidentified mucosal secretion system. Our work discovers a previously unknown mechanism of air pollution-induced, uric acid-mediated, allergic sensitization that may be important in the pathogenesis of asthma.]]> Fri 29 Jan 2016 17:03:15 EST ]]> Impaired antiviral stress granule and IFN-β enhanceosome formation enhances susceptibility to influenza infection in COPD epithelium Fri 29 Jan 2016 17:03:15 EST ]]> Activiating protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) enhances tristetraprolin (TTP) anti-inflammatory function in A549 lung epithelial cells Fri 29 Jan 2016 17:03:13 EST ]]> Maternal smoke exposure impairs the long term fertility of a female offspring in a murine model Fri 29 Jan 2016 17:03:13 EST ]]> Memory-efficient quasi-cyclic spatially coupled low-density parity-check and repeat-accumulate codes Fri 29 Jan 2016 16:42:15 EST ]]> Automatic landmark detection for localisation and navigation Fri 29 Jan 2016 16:35:22 EST ]]> The effects of maternal stress on perinatal neurodevelopment and behaviour Fri 29 Jan 2016 16:35:19 EST ]]> Effects of prenatal stress on fetal neurodevelopment and responses to maternal neurosteroid treatment in guinea pigs Fri 29 Jan 2016 16:35:17 EST ]]> Frictions of management: engaging and performing ‘nature’ in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park Fri 29 Jan 2016 16:35:16 EST ]]> Intracranial pressure elevation after ischemic stroke in rats: cerebral edema is not the only cause, and short-duration mild hypothermia is a highly effective preventive therapy Fri 29 Jan 2016 16:28:19 EST ]]> A new understanding of factors regulating collateral blood flow during ischaemic stroke: elevated intracranial pressure is a potential cause of collateral failure in patients with stroke-in-progression Fri 29 Jan 2016 16:28:19 EST ]]> Fine-mapping of the HNF1B multicancer locus identifies candidate variants that mediate endometrial cancer risk.

Both studies replicated previous bivariate relationships between perpetrator importance and hurt-proneness and the intensity of hurt, while the first study also demonstrated a significant effect for type of hurtful event. Both studies also found a significant three-way interaction between these variables, indicating that victim hurt-proneness only predicted the intensity of hurt at lower levels of event severity and perpetrator importance. It is concluded that the experience of hurt is multidimensional and contextual.
