The interleukin-1 type 2 receptor gene displays immediate early gene responsiveness in glucocorticoid-stimulated human epidermal keratinocytes. (1/669)Human epidermal keratinocytes (HEKs) in primary culture (P2-P4) were used to study glucocorticoid (GC)-mediated transcription of the genes encoding the constitutively expressed interleukin-1 type 1 receptor (IL-1R1) and the inducible interleukin-1 type 2 receptor (IL-1R2). Utilizing Northern dot blot analysis and a quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction protocol for IL-1R1 and IL-1R2, dexamethasone and, in particular, the budesonide epimer R were shown to effectively and rapidly induce transcription from the IL-IR2 gene when compared with IL-1R1 or beta-actin RNA message levels in the same sample. Southern blot analysis of newly generated IL-1R2 reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction products using end-labeled IL-1R2 intron probes suggested that GC enhancement of IL-1R2 expression was regulated primarily at the level of de novo transcription. GC-induced IL-1R2 gene transcription displayed features characteristic of a classical immediate early gene response, including a signal transduction function, a relatively low basal abundance, a rapid, transient induction, cycloheximide superinduction, actinomycin D suppression, and a rapid decay of IL-1R2 RNA message. Parallel time course kinetic analysis of IL-1R2 RNA message levels with Western immunoblotting revealed tight coupling of de novo IL-IR2 gene transcription with translation of the IL-1R2 RNA message; a newly synthesized ( approximately 46-kDa) IL-1R2 protein was detected in the HEK growth medium as early as 1 h after budesonide epimer R treatment. These data indicate that different GC compounds can variably up-regulate the IL-1R2 response in HEKs through transcription-mediated mechanisms and, for the first time, suggest that a gene encoding a soluble cytokine receptor can respond like an immediate early gene.

Randomised controlled trial of budesonide for the prevention of post-bronchiolitis wheezing. (2/669)BACKGROUND: Previous studies suggest that recurrent episodes of coughing and wheezing occur in up to 75% of infants after acute viral bronchiolitis. AIM: To assess the efficacy of budesonide given by means of a metered dose inhaler, spacer, and face mask in reducing the incidence of coughing and wheezing episodes up to 12 months after acute viral bronchiolitis. METHODS: Children under the age of 12 months admitted to hospital with acute viral bronchiolitis were randomised to receive either budesonide or placebo (200 microg or one puff twice daily) for the next eight weeks. Parents kept a diary card record of all episodes of coughing and wheezing over the next 12 months. RESULTS: Full follow up data were collected for 49 infants. There were no significant differences between the two study groups for the number of infants with symptom episodes up to six months after hospital discharge. At 12 months, 21 infants in the budesonide group had symptom episodes compared with 12 of 24 in the placebo group. The median number of symptom episodes was 2 (range, 0-13) in those who received budesonide and 1 (range, 0-11) in those who received placebo. Because there is no pharmacological explanation for these results, they are likely to be caused by a type 1 error, possibly exacerbated by there being more boys in the treatment group. CONCLUSION: Routine administration of budesonide by means of a metered dose inhaler, spacer, and face mask system immediately after acute viral bronchiolitis cannot be recommended. (+info)
A cortisol suppression dose-response comparison of budesonide in controlled ileal release capsules with prednisolone. (3/669)AIM: To assess the systemic effect of oral budesonide, given as Entocort controlled ileal release capsules, over a dose range of 3-15 mg/day, compared with that of a moderate dose (20 mg/day) of prednisolone. METHODS: Twenty four healthy subjects were given 3, 9 or 15 mg budesonide or 20 mg prednisolone once daily, or 4.5 mg budesonide b.d., or placebo for 5 days in a randomized, double-blind crossover study. The area under the curve (AUC) of plasma cortisol concentration and the amount of cortisol excreted in the urine were monitored. RESULTS: Both plasma and urine cortisol suppression showed a dose-response for the daily doses of budesonide. Prednisolone, 20 mg, suppressed plasma cortisol (AUC) statistically significantly more than 15 mg budesonide (P = 0.014), and 3 mg budesonide statistically significantly more than placebo (P = 0.010). No difference in AUC was detected between 9 mg and 4.5 mg budesonide b.d. Similar results for budesonide vs. placebo were obtained from urine cortisol excretion data. However, prednisolone affected urine cortisol less than it affected plasma cortisol. CONCLUSION: After 5 days of administration, budesonide controlled ileal release capsules, in both clinical (9 mg/day) and high doses (15 mg/day), affected plasma cortisol less than a moderate (20 mg/day) dose of prednisolone.

Systemic availability and pharmacokinetics of nebulised budesonide in preschool children. (4/669)AIM: To evaluate the systemic availability and basic pharmacokinetic parameters of budesonide after nebulisation and intravenous administration in preschool children with chronic asthma. METHODS: Plasma concentrations of budesonide were measured for three hours after an intravenous infusion of 125 micrograms budesonide. The children then inhaled a nominal dose of 1 mg budesonide through the mouthpiece of a Pari LC Jet Plus nebuliser connected to a Pari Master compressor, and the plasma concentrations of budesonide were measured for another six hours. The amount of budesonide inhaled by the patient ("dose to subject") was determined by subtracting from the amount of budesonide put into the nebuliser, the amount remaining in the nebuliser after nebulisation, the amount emitted to the ambient air (filter), and the amount found in the mouth rinsing water. RESULTS: Ten patients aged 3 to 6 years completed both the intravenous and the inhaled treatment. The mean dose to subject was 23% of the nominal dose. The systemic availability of budesonide was estimated to be 6.1% of the nominal dose (95% confidence intervals (CI), 4.6% to 8.1%) or 26.3% of the dose to subject (95% CI, 20.3% to 34.1%). Budesonide clearance was 0.54 l/min (95% CI, 0.46 to 0.62), steady state volume of distribution 55 litres (95% CI, 45 to 68), and the terminal half life was 2.3 hours (95% CI, 2.0 to 2.6). CONCLUSIONS: Approximately 6% of the nominal dose (26% of the dose to subject) reached the systemic circulation of young children after inhalation of nebulised budesonide. This is about half the systemic availability found in healthy adults using the same nebuliser. (+info)
One year prospective open study of the effect of high dose inhaled steroids, fluticasone propionate, and budesonide on bone markers and bone mineral density. (5/669)BACKGROUND: Inhaled corticosteroids are recognised as the most effective agents in the treatment of asthma. However, concerns have been expressed about the effects of high doses of inhaled corticosteroids on safety in relation to bone resorption and formation. This study measures the effects of two inhaled corticosteroids on bone markers and bone mineral density (BMD) over one year. METHODS: A one year randomised, prospective, open parallel study comparing inhaled fluticasone propionate (FP), 500 micrograms twice daily in 30 patients, and budesonide (BUD), 800 micrograms twice daily in 29 patients, delivered by metered dose inhaler and large volume spacers was performed in adults with moderate to severe asthma. Biochemical markers of bone turnover (osteocalcin, procollagen type 1 C-terminal propeptide (PICP), immunoreactive free deoxypyridinoline (iFDpd), N-terminal crosslinked telopeptides of type I collagen (NTx)), BMD at the spine and femoral neck, and serum cortisol concentrations were measured at baseline and 12 months later. RESULTS: There were no significant differences between the inhaled steroids on bone markers of bone resorption and formation or bone mineral density. Bone mineral density of the spine increased slightly in both groups over the 12 month period. Serum osteocalcin levels increased from baseline in both treatment groups (FP 16.9%, p = 0.02; BUD 14.3%, p = 0.04). PICP did not differ significantly from baseline. Both markers of bone resorption (iFDpd, NTx) varied considerably with no significant changes after one year. There was a significant correlation in percentage change from baseline between BMD of the spine and osteocalcin at 12 months (r = 0.4, p = 0.017). Mean serum cortisol levels remained within the normal range in both groups following treatment. CONCLUSION: There was no evidence of a decrease in BMD during 12 months of treatment with high doses of either FP or BUD. The change in spine BMD correlated with the increase in osteocalcin. Studies extending over several years are needed to establish whether these findings persist. (+info)
Peak flow variation in childhood asthma: correlation with symptoms, airways obstruction, and hyperresponsiveness during long-term treatment with inhaled corticosteroids. Dutch CNSLD Study Group. (6/669)BACKGROUND: Guidelines for asthma management focus on treatment with inhaled corticosteroids and on home recording of peak expiratory flow (PEF). The effect of maintenance treatment with inhaled corticosteroids on PEF variation and its relation to other parameters of disease activity were examined in 102 asthmatic children aged 7-14 years. METHODS: During 20 months of treatment with inhaled salbutamol, with or without inhaled budesonide (600 micrograms daily), forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), the dose of histamine required to provoke a fall in FEV1 of more than 20% (PD20), the percentage of symptom free days, and PEF variation were assessed bimonthly. PEF variation was computed as the lowest PEF as a percentage of the highest PEF occurring over 14 days, the usual way of expressing PEF variation in asthma self-management plans. For each patient using inhaled corticosteroids within subject correlation coefficients (rho) were computed of PEF variation to the percentage of symptom free days, FEV1, and PD20. RESULTS: PEF variation decreased significantly during the first two months of treatment with inhaled corticosteroids and then remained stable. The same pattern was observed for symptoms and FEV1. In contrast, PD20 histamine continued to improve throughout the whole follow up period. In individual patients predominantly positive associations of PEF variation with symptoms, FEV1, and PD20 were found, but the ranges of these associations were wide. CONCLUSIONS: During treatment with inhaled corticosteroids the changes in PEF variation over time show poor concordance with changes in other parameters of asthma severity. When only PEF is monitored, clinically relevant deteriorations in symptoms, FEV1, or PD20 may be missed. This suggests that home recording of PEF alone may not be sufficient to monitor asthma severity reliably in children. (+info)
Effect of differing doses of inhaled budesonide on markers of airway inflammation in patients with mild asthma. (7/669)BACKGROUND: It is desirable to prescribe the minimal effective dose of inhaled steroids to control asthma. To ensure that inflammation is suppressed whilst using the lowest possible dose, a sensitive and specific method for assessing airway inflammation is needed. METHODS: The usefulness of exhaled nitric oxide (NO), sputum eosinophils, and methacholine airway responsiveness (PC20) for monitoring airway inflammatory changes following four weeks of treatment with an inhaled corticosteroid (budesonide via Turbohaler) were compared. Mild stable steroid naive asthmatic subjects were randomised into two double blind, placebo controlled studies. The first was a parallel group study involving three groups receiving either 100 micrograms/day budesonide (n = 8), 400 micrograms/day budesonide (n = 7), or a matched placebo (n = 6). The second was a crossover study involving 10 subjects randomised to receive 1600 micrograms budesonide or placebo. The groups were matched with respect to age, PC20, baseline FEV1 (% predicted), exhaled NO, and sputum eosinophilia. RESULTS: There were significant improvements in FEV1 following 400 micrograms and 1600 micrograms budesonide (11.3% and 6.5%, respectively, p < 0.05). This was accompanied by significant reductions in eosinophil numbers in induced sputum (0.7 and 0.9 fold, p < 0.05). However, levels of exhaled NO were reduced following each budesonide dose while PC20 was improved only with 1600 micrograms budesonide. These results suggest that exhaled NO and PC20 may not reflect the control of airway inflammation as accurately as the number of eosinophils in sputum. There were dose dependent changes in exhaled NO, sputum eosinophils, and PC20 to inhaled budesonide but a plateau response of exhaled NO was found at a dose of 400 micrograms daily. CONCLUSION: Monitoring the number of eosinophils in induced sputum may be the most accurate guide to establish the minimum dose of inhaled steroids needed to control inflammation. This, however, requires further studies involving a larger number of patients. (+info)
Randomised trial of an inhaled beta2 agonist, inhaled corticosteroid and their combination in the treatment of asthma. (8/669)BACKGROUND: Although many asthmatic patients are treated with a combination of beta2 agonist and corticosteroid inhalers, the clinical effects of combining the drugs are unknown. Studies on the early asthmatic response to allergen suggest that beta2 agonists may reduce the benefit of inhaled corticosteroids. A study of the effects of combining the drugs on asthma control was undertaken. METHODS: Sixty one subjects with mild to moderate asthma were randomised to a double blind crossover comparison of inhaled budesonide (200-400 microg twice daily), terbutaline (500-1000 microg four times daily), combined treatment, and placebo. Each treatment was given for six weeks following a four week washout period. Ipratropium was used for symptom relief. Treatments were ranked from worst (1) to best (4) based on need for oral steroid, mean morning peak flow, nocturnal awakening, ipratropium use, and asthma symptoms. Lung function and bronchial hyperresponsiveness were measured before and after each treatment. RESULTS: Evaluable data for all four treatments were obtained from 47 subjects. The mean rank of each treatment was: placebo = 2.05; terbutaline = 2.13; budesonide = 2.48; combined treatment = 3.34. Combined treatment was ranked significantly better than any other treatment (p<0.01). Mean (95% CI) morning and evening peak flows were 14 (5 to 23) and 24 (15 to 34) l/min higher, respectively, during combined treatment than during budesonide, and 27 (17 to 37) and 15 (7 to 23) l/min higher than during terbutaline. Asthma symptoms tended to be least frequent during combined treatment but were not significantly different from budesonide alone. There was no significant difference between combined treatment and budesonide alone for lung function and bronchial hyperresponsiveness. CONCLUSIONS: In this group of mild to moderate asthmatic subjects the combination of beta2 agonist and corticosteroid gave better asthma control than either treatment alone. There was no evidence that regular beta2 agonist treatment impaired the beneficial effect of inhaled corticosteroid. (+info)
Budesonide is a synthetic corticosteroid medication that is used to treat a variety of inflammatory conditions, including asthma, allergic rhinitis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It works by reducing inflammation in the airways and lungs, which can help to improve breathing and reduce symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath. Budesonide is available in a variety of forms, including inhalers, nasal sprays, and oral tablets. It is typically used on a long-term basis to manage chronic conditions, and may be used in combination with other medications to provide more effective treatment. Budesonide is generally considered to be safe and well-tolerated, although it can cause side effects such as headache, nausea, and throat irritation. It is important to follow the instructions of your healthcare provider when using budesonide, and to report any side effects or concerns to your doctor.
Pregnenediones are a group of steroid hormones that are synthesized from cholesterol in the adrenal cortex. They include cortisol, corticosterone, and aldosterone, which are important for regulating various physiological processes in the body, such as metabolism, blood pressure, and the immune response. These hormones are also involved in the stress response and play a role in the development and function of the reproductive system.
Ethanolamines are a group of organic compounds that contain an amino (-NH2) group attached to an ethyl (-CH2CH3) group. They are commonly used in the medical field as solvents, emulsifiers, and preservatives in various pharmaceutical and medical products. One specific ethanolamine that is commonly used in the medical field is triethanolamine (TEA). TEA is a colorless, viscous liquid that is used as a buffering agent in various medical products, including topical creams, ointments, and shampoos. It is also used as a surfactant in some medical devices, such as catheters and endoscopes, to help prevent bacterial growth and contamination. Another ethanolamine that is used in the medical field is diethanolamine (DEA). DEA is a colorless, odorless liquid that is used as a solvent and emulsifier in various medical products, including topical creams, ointments, and shampoos. It is also used as a preservative in some medical devices, such as catheters and endoscopes, to help prevent bacterial growth and contamination. Overall, ethanolamines are commonly used in the medical field due to their ability to act as solvents, emulsifiers, and preservatives in various medical products. However, it is important to note that some ethanolamines, such as DEA, have been linked to skin irritation and other adverse effects when used in high concentrations or for prolonged periods of time. Therefore, it is important to use these compounds in accordance with recommended guidelines and to carefully monitor their use in medical products.
Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways in the lungs. This can cause symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness. Asthma can be triggered by a variety of factors, including allergens, irritants, exercise, and respiratory infections. It is a common condition, affecting millions of people worldwide, and can range from mild to severe. Treatment typically involves the use of medications to control inflammation and open up the airways, as well as lifestyle changes to avoid triggers and improve overall lung function.
Glucocorticoids are a class of hormones produced by the adrenal gland that regulate glucose metabolism and have anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects. They are commonly used in medicine to treat a variety of conditions, including: 1. Inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and asthma 2. Autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease 3. Allergies and anaphylaxis 4. Skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis 5. Cancer treatment to reduce inflammation and suppress the immune system 6. Endocrine disorders such as Cushing's syndrome and Addison's disease Glucocorticoids work by binding to specific receptors in cells throughout the body, leading to changes in gene expression and protein synthesis. They can also increase blood sugar levels by stimulating the liver to produce glucose and decreasing the body's sensitivity to insulin. Long-term use of high doses of glucocorticoids can have serious side effects, including weight gain, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and increased risk of infection.
Terbutaline is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs called beta-2 agonists. It is primarily used to treat asthma and other conditions that cause difficulty breathing, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Terbutaline works by relaxing the muscles in the airways, making it easier to breathe. It is usually taken by inhalation using a metered-dose inhaler (MDI) or a nebulizer. In addition to its use in respiratory conditions, terbutaline may also be used to treat certain heart conditions, such as atrial fibrillation. It is important to note that terbutaline should only be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional, as it can have side effects and may interact with other medications.
Colitis, collagenous is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that affects the colon (large intestine). It is characterized by the presence of thickened folds of tissue in the colon, which are caused by an accumulation of collagen fibers. Collagenous colitis is typically diagnosed based on symptoms such as chronic diarrhea, abdominal pain, and weight loss, as well as the presence of characteristic histological changes in the colon. Treatment for collagenous colitis typically involves the use of medications to reduce inflammation and manage symptoms, although the exact course of treatment may vary depending on the individual case.
Androstadienes are a group of organic compounds that are derived from testosterone, a hormone produced by the testes in males. They are characterized by a six-membered ring structure with two double bonds, and are classified as a type of androgen. Androstadienes are found in a variety of plants, including yams, potatoes, and soybeans, and are also synthesized by the human body. In the medical field, androstadienes are sometimes used as a treatment for conditions such as prostate cancer and erectile dysfunction. They are also being studied for their potential use in the development of new drugs for the treatment of other diseases.
In the medical field, aerosols refer to tiny particles or droplets of liquid or solid matter that are suspended in the air and can be inhaled into the respiratory system. Aerosols can be generated by various sources, including human activities such as talking, coughing, and sneezing, as well as natural phenomena such as volcanic eruptions and dust storms. Aerosols can contain a variety of substances, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, pollutants, and other particles. When inhaled, these particles can enter the lungs and potentially cause respiratory infections, allergies, and other health problems. In the context of infectious diseases, aerosols are of particular concern because they can transmit pathogens over long distances and remain suspended in the air for extended periods of time. To prevent the spread of infectious diseases, it is important to take measures to reduce the generation and dispersion of aerosols in indoor environments, such as wearing masks, practicing good respiratory hygiene, and improving ventilation systems.
Beclomethasone is a type of corticosteroid medication that is used to treat a variety of inflammatory conditions, including asthma, allergic rhinitis (hay fever), and eczema. It works by reducing inflammation and suppressing the immune system's response to allergens and other irritants. Beclomethasone is available in a variety of forms, including inhalers, nasal sprays, and creams, and is typically prescribed by a healthcare provider. It is important to follow the instructions for use carefully and to speak with a healthcare provider if you experience any side effects or if your symptoms do not improve with treatment.
Croup is a viral infection that primarily affects the upper respiratory tract of children, particularly those between the ages of 6 months and 5 years. It is caused by the parainfluenza virus type 1 or 2, or the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). The symptoms of croup include a barking cough, hoarseness, difficulty breathing, and a high-pitched cry. The cough is often worse at night and may cause the child to have difficulty sleeping. In severe cases, croup can lead to difficulty breathing and even respiratory failure. Croup is typically treated with supportive care, such as giving the child plenty of fluids, using a humidifier to help with breathing, and administering corticosteroids to reduce inflammation in the airways. In severe cases, hospitalization may be necessary for oxygen therapy or other interventions. While croup is usually a self-limiting condition that resolves on its own within a few days to a week, it can be a frightening experience for both the child and the parents. It is important to seek medical attention if the child's symptoms are severe or if they do not improve with home treatment.
Proctocolitis is a medical condition that refers to inflammation of the rectum and colon. It is typically characterized by symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, rectal bleeding, and a feeling of urgency to have a bowel movement. Proctocolitis can be caused by a variety of factors, including infections, autoimmune disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, and certain medications. Treatment for proctocolitis depends on the underlying cause and may include medications, dietary changes, and in some cases, surgery.
Albuterol is a medication that is used to treat asthma and other conditions that cause difficulty breathing. It is a type of bronchodilator, which means that it helps to relax and widen the muscles in the airways, making it easier to breathe. Albuterol is available in a variety of forms, including inhalers, nebulizers, and tablets. It is also sometimes used to treat heart conditions, such as heart failure, because it can help to improve blood flow and reduce the workload on the heart.
Adrenal cortex hormones are a group of hormones produced by the adrenal gland's outer layer, the cortex. These hormones play a crucial role in regulating various bodily functions, including metabolism, blood pressure, and the body's response to stress. The adrenal cortex hormones are divided into three main categories based on their chemical structure and function: 1. Glucocorticoids: These hormones, including cortisol, are responsible for regulating metabolism and the body's response to stress. They help the body break down stored carbohydrates and fats to provide energy, and they also suppress the immune system to reduce inflammation. 2. Mineralocorticoids: These hormones, including aldosterone, regulate the body's electrolyte balance and blood pressure. They help the kidneys retain sodium and excrete potassium, which helps maintain proper blood pressure. 3. Androgens: These hormones, including dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), are responsible for the development of male secondary sexual characteristics, such as facial hair and deepening of the voice. They also play a role in the body's response to stress. Adrenal cortex hormones are produced in response to signals from the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, and their levels can be affected by a variety of factors, including stress, illness, and medications. Imbalances in adrenal cortex hormone levels can lead to a range of health problems, including Cushing's syndrome, Addison's disease, and adrenal insufficiency.
Nedocromil is a medication that is used to prevent and treat asthma and allergic rhinitis (hay fever). It works by blocking the release of histamine, a chemical that causes inflammation and allergic reactions in the body. Nedocromil is available as an inhaler and is typically used in conjunction with other asthma medications. It is not suitable for everyone and should only be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional.
Hydrocortisone is a synthetic glucocorticoid hormone that is used in the medical field to treat a variety of conditions. It is a potent anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive agent that can help reduce inflammation, swelling, and redness in the body. Hydrocortisone is also used to treat conditions such as allergies, asthma, eczema, and psoriasis, as well as to reduce the symptoms of adrenal insufficiency, a condition in which the body does not produce enough of the hormone cortisol. It is available in a variety of forms, including oral tablets, topical creams, and injections.
Racepinephrine is a medication that is used to treat a variety of conditions, including low blood pressure, heart problems, and allergic reactions. It is a type of medication called a sympathomimetic, which means that it works by stimulating the body's sympathetic nervous system. This can cause a number of effects, including an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing rate. Racepinephrine is available in both injectable and oral forms, and it is typically used in emergency situations to treat severe allergic reactions or to stabilize a person's blood pressure. It is important to note that racepinephrine should only be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional, as it can have serious side effects if not used properly.
Leukotriene E4 (LTE4) is a type of leukotriene, which is a chemical substance produced by white blood cells (leukocytes) in response to inflammation. LTE4 is a potent mediator of inflammation and can cause constriction of blood vessels, increased mucus production, and recruitment of immune cells to the site of inflammation. It is involved in the pathophysiology of various inflammatory diseases, including asthma, allergic rhinitis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). LTE4 is also a biomarker of inflammation and can be measured in blood or sputum samples to help diagnose and monitor these conditions.
Microscopic colitis is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that affects the inner lining of the colon. It is characterized by inflammation that is not visible to the naked eye, but can be detected through a biopsy of the colon. There are two main types of microscopic colitis: lymphocytic colitis and collagenous colitis. Lymphocytic colitis is characterized by the presence of lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell) in the colon, while collagenous colitis is characterized by the presence of thickened collagen fibers in the colon. Symptoms of microscopic colitis can include diarrhea, abdominal pain, and weight loss. The cause of microscopic colitis is not fully understood, but it is thought to be related to an abnormal immune response in the colon. Treatment for microscopic colitis typically involves medications to reduce inflammation and manage symptoms, such as aminosalicylates, corticosteroids, and immunosuppressive drugs. In some cases, a low-fiber diet may also be recommended.
Procaterol is a long-acting beta-2 adrenergic receptor agonist (LABA) used in the medical field to treat asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It works by relaxing the muscles in the airways, allowing air to flow more easily and reducing inflammation and mucus production. Procaterol is typically administered through inhalation and is used as an add-on therapy to other asthma or COPD medications. It is also used to treat exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) in people with asthma.
Multiple pulmonary nodules refer to the presence of two or more small, round or oval growths or masses in the lungs. These nodules can be detected through various imaging techniques such as chest X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The size of pulmonary nodules can vary, but they are typically less than 3 centimeters in diameter. Multiple pulmonary nodules can be either solid or part-solid, and their appearance can be either homogeneous or heterogeneous. The presence of multiple pulmonary nodules can be a sign of various medical conditions, including lung cancer, infections such as tuberculosis or pneumonia, or non-malignant conditions such as granulomas or hamartomas. Therefore, the diagnosis and management of multiple pulmonary nodules depend on their size, shape, location, and other clinical factors, as well as the patient's medical history and risk factors.
