Why do patients seek family physicians' services for cold symptoms? (1/341)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the frequency of presentation to family physicians' offices for cold symptoms, the reasons for presentation, and the duration of symptoms before presentation. DESIGN: Prospective cross-sectional survey. PARTICIPANTS: One hundred consecutive patient encounters in each of 15 family practices from January 27 to February 3, 1994, involving both academic and non-academic family physicians in the London region. Data were collected prospectively using a checklist attached to each chart. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Proportion of patients presenting with cold symptoms, reasons for presentation, number of days patients had had symptoms, billing code. RESULTS: A total of 1421 checklists were analyzed, 822 from academic practices and 599 from community practices. Proportion of presentations for cold symptoms was 14.8%, but visits coded as common cold represented 5.7%. Median number of days patients waited before presentation was 7.0; older patients tended to wait longer. Many patients were worried about developing complications (51.0%) or were fed up with their symptoms (31.9%). Most patients were between the ages of 20 and 64 (44.6%), and 57.6% of all patients had developed complications requiring treatment. CONCLUSIONS: The proportion of visits coded as common cold was lower than Ontario averages. Most patients had complications rather than simple colds and had managed their symptoms on their own for a fairly long time.  (+info)

Antiviral effect of hyperthermic treatment in rhinovirus infection. (2/341)

Human rhinoviruses (HRV) are recognized as the major etiologic agents for the common cold. Starting from the observation that local hyperthermic treatment is beneficial in patients with natural and experimental common colds, we have studied the effect of brief hyperthermic treatment (HT) on HRV replication in HeLa cells. We report that a 20-min HT at 45 degrees C is effective in suppressing HRV multiplication by more than 90% when applied at specific stages of the virus replication cycle. Synthesis of virus proteins is not affected by HT, indicating that the target for treatment is a posttranslational event. The antiviral effect is a transient cell-mediated event and is associated with the synthesis of the 70-kDa heat shock protein hsp70. Unlike poliovirus, rhinovirus infection does not inhibit the expression of hsp70 induced by heat. The possibility that hsp70 could play a role in the control of rhinovirus replication is suggested by the fact that a different class of HSP inducers, the cyclopentenone prostaglandins PGA1 and delta 12-PGJ2, were also effective in inhibiting HRV replication in HeLa cells. Inhibition of hsp70 expression by actinomycin D prevented the antiviral activity of prostaglandins in HRV-infected cells. These results indicate that the beneficial effect of respiratory hyperthermia may be mediated by the induction of a cytoprotective heat shock response in rhinovirus-infected cells.  (+info)

Evaluation of a cold/flu self-care public education campaign. (3/341)

The purpose of the study was to evaluate an Ontario Ministry of Health (MOH) cold/flu self-care public education campaign to reduce unnecessary patient visits to doctors. The MOH campaign consisted of an information booklet delivered to every household in an Ontario city, newspaper ads and radio spots. The program ran during January-March 1994. The evaluation consisted of: (1) 2x2 telephone survey in London (experimental area) and Windsor (comparison area), before and during the campaign; and (2) a telephone survey of London family practitioners during the campaign. In addition, data on the incidence of cold/flu visits to three hospital emergency departments and a sample of family physicians' offices were gathered. The data suggest that program rationale may have been questionable because the majority of the surveyed public were knowledgeable and self-reported appropriate doctor visits for cold/flu. Campaign evaluation showed limited impact. Message penetration was low; only one-third of London residents knew of the campaign or read the booklet. Only two of 10 questions showed increases in knowledge in London and no changes were found for beliefs, attitudes, acquisition of new health practices or self-reported visits to the doctor. The physician survey, emergency room and family physician office visit data were consistent with the public survey findings.  (+info)

Rhinovirus regulation of IL-1 receptor antagonist in vivo and in vitro: a potential mechanism of symptom resolution. (4/341)

Rhinovirus (RV) upper respiratory tract infections are prototypic transient inflammatory responses. To address the mechanism of disease resolution in these infections, we determined if RV stimulated the production of the IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra) in vivo and in vitro. In contrast to IL-1alpha and IL-1beta, immunoreactive IL-1ra was readily detected in the nasal washings of normal human volunteers. Symptomatic RV infection caused a small increase in IL-1alpha, a modest increase in IL-1beta, and an impressive increase in IL-1ra. Maximal induction of IL-1alpha and IL-1beta was transiently noted 48 h after RV infection. In contrast, maximal induction of IL-1ra was prolonged appearing 48-72 h after RV infection. These time points corresponded to the periods of peak symptomatology and the onset of symptom resolution, respectively. Western analysis of nasal washings demonstrated that RV stimulated the accumulation of intracellular IL-1ra type I in all and secreted IL-1ra in a subset of volunteers. Unstimulated normal respiratory epithelial cells contained intracellular IL-1ra type I mRNA and protein. RV infection increased the intracellular levels and extracellular transport of this IL-1ra moiety without causing significant changes in the levels of IL-1ra mRNA. IL-1ra may play an important role in the resolution of RV respiratory infections. RV stimulates epithelial cell IL-1ra elaboration, at least in part, via a novel translational and/or posttranslational mechanism.  (+info)

Common colds. Reported patterns of self-care and health care use. (5/341)

OBJECTIVE: To describe the self-reported prevalence and patterns of self-care and health care use for colds and flu. DESIGN: Using the expert panel method, a questionnaire was developed to explore self-care practices, attitudes, pharmaceutical use, and health care use for a range of cold and flu symptoms. SETTING: London and Windsor, Ont. PARTICIPANTS: Using a random-digit-dialing survey method, 210 residents were interviewed between November and December 1993. Of 1484 telephone numbers called, 1179 calls were ineligible. Two hundred ten questionnaires were completed for 305 eligible respondents. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Demographic data, typical self-care practices, actual practice during respondents' last cold, opinions on appropriate practices, and knowledge of how to treat colds. RESULTS: Self-care was respondents' treatment of choice, and most respondents use over-the-counter drugs. Prescription drug use was low. Only 1% reported seeing a physician for their last cold. As the number of symptoms increased, however, reported use of over-the-counter drugs and calls or visits to doctors increased. CONCLUSIONS: Results are congruent with other studies showing that the health care practices of most respondents are consistent with low use of the health care system and high levels of self-care for colds and flu.  (+info)

Life-style related factors and idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy--a case-control study using pooled controls. (6/341)

A case-control study was conducted to investigate how basic habits of life including dietary habit, physical activity, cigarette smoking, and drinking, are involved in the development of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). Collection of cases was entrusted to the clinical research group of DCM, and national pooled controls established by sex and age category by the epidemiological research group of intractable diseases were used to ensure representativeness of the controls. Fifty-eight cases of DCM which developed in and after January 1991 were collected, and 5,912 controls matched with the cases by residential area, sex, and age were selected. Analysis of the results of the study showed that items in the questionnaire suggestive of viral infection, such as "susceptibility to common cold" and "susceptibility to diarrhea", items concerning dietary habit, including "taking no breakfast", "ingestion of salty food", and "ingestion of fatty food", and such items as "cigarette smoking" and "lack of sleep" tended to be observed in the case group at significantly higher frequencies. Since viral infection has been suspected as a causative factor of DCM, further research of this area is thought to be of particular importance for determining the etiology of DCM.  (+info)

Effects of dexamethasone on rhinovirus infection in cultured human tracheal epithelial cells. (7/341)

To examine the effects of glucocorticoid on rhinovirus (RV) infection, primary cultures of human tracheal epithelial cells were infected with either RV2 or RV14. Viral infection was confirmed by demonstrating that viral RNA in infected cells and viral titers of supernatants and lysates from infected cells increased with time. RV14 infection upregulated the expression of mRNA and protein of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), the major RV receptor, on epithelial cells, and it increased the production of interleukin (IL)-1beta, IL-6, IL-8, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha in supernatants. Dexamethasone reduced the viral titers of supernatants and cell lysates, viral RNA of infected cells, and susceptibility of RV14 infection in association with inhibition of cytokine production and ICAM-1 induction. In contrast to RV14 infection, dexamethasone did not alter RV2 infection, a minor group of RVs. These results suggest that dexamethasone may inhibit RV14 infection by reducing the surface expression of ICAM-1 in cultured human tracheal epithelial cells. Glucocorticoid may modulate airway inflammation via reducing the production of proinflammatory cytokines and ICAM-1 induced by rhinovirus infection.  (+info)

Zinc and the common cold: a meta-analysis revisited. (8/341)

The common cold has been estimated to cost the United States > $3.5 billion per year. Despite several randomized clinical trials, the effect of treating colds with zinc gluconate remains uncertain due to conflicting results. We conducted a meta-analysis of published randomized clinical trials on the use of zinc gluconate lozenges in colds using the random effects model of DerSimonians and Laird. Ten clinical trials of cold treatment with zinc gluconate were identified. After excluding two studies that used nasal inoculum of rhinovirus, eight trials were combined and analyzed. The summary odds ratio for the presence of "any cold symptoms" at 7 d was 0.52 (95% confidence interval, 0.25-1.2). We conclude that despite numerous randomized trials, the evidence for effectiveness of zinc lozenges in reducing the duration of common colds is still lacking.  (+info)

Opinions vary about the best treatment for common cold symptoms. Zinc common cold remedies are much in the news, but some controversy surrounds their use.. Over the counter products, vitamin supplements and herbal remedies are really the only options a person has for treating a cold. Because colds are caused by viruses, there are no effective prescription medications and a visit to the doctor is usually unnecessary, unless a secondary bacterial infection, such as a sinus or ear infection occurs. Antibiotics are not effective for either preventing or treating a cold. Over-use of antibiotics has led to the development of more resistant strains of bacteria.. According to many experts, the best treatment for common cold symptoms is to get plenty of rest and drink lots of fluids. Probably, because so many people have a busy lifestyle, pharmaceutical companies keep coming up with products like zinc common cold remedies and other multi-symptom cold relievers.

Review question We examined the effects of inhaling heated, humidified air delivered by a device (RhinoTherm) for people with common cold.. Background Common cold is the most common infection in humans. It does not usually cause complications, but can lead to days off work or school due to discomfort caused by symptoms. The diagnosis is based on symptoms, and the treatments are mainly symptomatic. Symptoms include fever, loss of appetite, feeling unwell, feeling chilled, with headache, muscle aches, and pains. Many signs and symptoms are caused by congestion from swelling of membranes and thickened mucus inside the nose. The common cold has been treated for decades with inhaled steam to help the mucus drain more easily. There is laboratory evidence that the cold virus may be sensitive to heat, but no large scale clinical trials have tested its effectiveness. Steam inhalation continues to be used because it provides subjective relief of common cold symptoms.. Search date The search is current to ...

The purpose of this dissertation was to evaluate changes in two antimicrobial markers, upper respiratory symptom (URS) variables, and mood state following participation in an acute (N = 93) and chronic (N = 88) observational study of college aerobic exercise, yoga exercise, and non-exercise classes. METHODS: Unstimulated whole saliva was collected pre/post-acute (50 minutes) and pre/midpoint/post-chronic (12 weeks) during the study period. Saliva was analyzed for salivary immunoglobulin A (SIgA) and salivary alpha amylase (SAA) using protocols and assay kits by Salimetrics, upper respiratory symptoms (URS) were evaluated using the Wisconsin Upper Respiratory Symptom Survey (WURSS), and mood states were evaluated by the Profile of Mood States (POMS) questionnaire. RESULTS: Analysis of the acute data revealed significant improvements for SIgA concentration in the aerobic exercise group (AEG) and the yoga exercise group (YEG) as well as SIgA secretion increases for all participants combined. No significant
Common Cold and Rhinovirus Each year in the US, there are millions of common cold cases. Common colds are the main reason why children miss school and adults miss work. Adults have an average of 2-3 colds per year and children have even more. There are approximately 200 viruses that can cause the common cold. Rhinoviruses are the most common cause.
The common cold which is also known as acute viral rhinopharyngitis, or acute coryza. It is a viral infectious disease that infects the upper respiratory system. Being the most common infectious disease in humans, the cold is mainly caused by coronaviruses or rhinoviruses. Colds are so common and recurring because the human body can never build up resistance to all the viruses that can cause the common cold. An average human catches common cold 7 times a year.
Natural News) Just like clockwork, the dreaded common cold comes around every year, causing runny nose, persistent coughing and misery. But does it really have to be this way? According to recent studies, it doesnt.. A study published in the journal Nutrients found that vitamin C is the key to recovering from the symptoms of the common cold. A researcher from the University of Helsinki in Finland discovered that a high dose of vitamin C can potentially reduce the duration of the common cold. Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is known to relieve and prevent bacterial and viral infections among different animal species. Its effects on human infections are similar to those found in animal studies.. Dr. Harri Hemila, the author of the study, reviewed the findings of two trials that focused on the effects of vitamin C doses during a common cold infection. In the first trial, two different study groups received 3 g (3,000 mg) of vitamin C per day. The third group received 6 g (6,000 mg) the ...
Break out those tissue boxes because medical experts say theres still no cure for the common cold - at least for now.. Break out those tissue boxes because medical experts say theres still no cure for the common cold - at least for now.. No vaccine exists for common-cold viruses, which infect most adults two to four times each year. Why not? Cold symptoms are linked to more than 200 viruses.. The things that we call the common cold - a cough, running nose, sore throat - can be caused by different species of viruses, said Dr. Harrison Weed, an infectious-disease expert at Ohio State University Medical Center.. Because the various species - primarily rhinoviruses and coronaviruses - react differently to treatments, no one cold-fighting vaccine has been developed.. If you look at one species of virus to another, there are huge genetic differences, Weed said.. One trait shared by most rhinoviruses - which make up 124 species of cold - is that they are immune to the alcohol in most ...
Participants entered their cold symptoms into an e-diary twice daily beginning at the Screening Visit through completion of the study. The total cold symptom score was the sum of 6 scores for rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, cough, score throat, malaise, and myalgia. Each symptom is scored as follows: 0 = none-sign/symptom is not present, 1 = mild-sign/symptom noticeable but did not bother me or interfere with my normal daily activities/sleep, 2 = moderate- sign/symptom annoying and may have interfered with my normal daily activities/sleep, or 3 = severe-symptom very uncomfortable and interfered with most or all of my normal daily activities/sleep. The total score ranges from 0 to 18, with increasing scores reflecting more severe colds. Baseline values were defined as the average of the last seven assessments prior to randomization (before exposure to an index case). Pooled SDs and LS means were calculated based on an ANOVA model ...

BACKGROUND The common cold is a frequent illness, which, although benign and self limiting, results in many consultations to primary care and considerable loss of school or work days. Current symptomatic treatments have limited benefit. Corticosteroids are an effective treatment in other upper respiratory tract infections and their anti-inflammatory effects may also be beneficial in the common cold. This updated review has included one additional study. OBJECTIVES To compare corticosteroids versus usual care for the common cold on measures of symptom resolution and improvement in children and adults. SEARCH METHODS We searched Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL 2015, Issue 4), which includes the Acute Respiratory Infections (ARI) Groups Specialised Register, the Database of Reviews of Effects (DARE) (2015, Issue 2), NHS Health Economics Database (2015, Issue 2), MEDLINE (1948 to May week 3, 2015) and EMBASE (January 2010 to May 2015).

Introduction:. It has been over 40 years since Linus Pauling wrote the book, Vitamin C and the Common Cold. Dr. Pauling based his opinion on several studies that showed vitamin C was very effective in reducing the severity of symptoms, as well as the duration of the common cold. Since that time, the research has been very controversial. A new study adds another strong argument that vitamin C supplementation does in fact, produce the results that Pauling promoted.. Background Data:. Over 30 clinical trials involving 11,350 study participants have been designed to judge the effectiveness of vitamin C in the prevention or treatment of the common cold. While the results from individual studies may be mixed, when the results from higher quality studies are pooled researchers have concluded that vitamin C can be quite beneficial in reducing the risk of developing a cold. This conclusion especially applies to individuals in high stress situations. Vitamin C supplementation may also reduce the duration ...
Once you are infected with the common cold, you may experience a further weakening of your immune system. This makes you susceptible to even more diseases such as pneumonia, influenza, sinusitis, bronchitis, hypothermia, strep throat and otitis media.. The effects described above however are for more severe or advanced cases of infection, but generally, these are the symptoms that you will experience at the onset of your cold: an itchy throat, watery eyes and a feeling of being ill or weak.. As the infection develops, you may experience having a runny nose, where the discharge is initially very watery and eventually may become thicker, more sneezing, coughing, and having headaches from time to time..

Despite the high incidence and the economic impact of the common cold, there are still no effective therapeutic options available. Although traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is widely used in China to treat the common cold, there is still a lack of high-quality clinical trials. This article sets forth the protocol for a high-quality trial of a new TCM drug, Baoji Tablets, which is designed to treat the common cold with summer-heat and dampness syndrome (CCSDS). The trial is evaluating both the efficacy and safety of Baoji Tablets. This study is designed as a multicenter, phase II, parallel-group, double-blind, double-dummy, randomized and placebo-controlled trial. A total of 288 patients will be recruited from four centers. The new tablets group are administered Baoji Tablets 0.9 g and dummy Baoji Pills 3.7 g. The old pills group are administered dummy Baoji Tablets 0.9 g and Baoji Pills 3.7 g. The placebo control group are administered dummy Baoji Tablets 0.9 g and dummy Baoji Pills 3.7 g. All drugs

From the foregoing experiments it appears that with the filtered nasopharyngeal secretions from early cases of typical infections common colds in the first 3 to 18 hours of the disease, a similar condition can be transmitted to man. With the unheated but not with the heated secretions from four of six such patients we have succeeded in transmitting an affection indistinguishable from common cold to four men and in two instances the condition was conveyed from the person with the experimental disease to a second individual -in all, therefore, to six supposedly normal subjects. The periods of incubation in the experimental disease varied from 8 to 48 hours. We failed to obtain these results with the filtered secretions from cases of common colds 18 and 20 hours after the onset of symptoms and from a patient with the experimental disease 20 hours after the first symptoms. It would appear that the secretions are more active in the early hours of the affection. We also failed in the two instances in ...

Its a very high-resolution model, notes Palmenberg, whose group along with a team from the University of Maryland was the first to map the genomes for all known common cold virus strains in 2009. We can see that it fits the data.. With a structure in hand, the likelihood that drugs can be designed to effectively thwart colds may be in the offing. Drugs that work well against the A and B strains of cold virus have been developed and advanced to clinical trials. However, their efficacy was blunted because they were built to take advantage of the surface features of the better known strains, whose structures were resolved years ago through X-ray crystallography, a well-established technique for obtaining the structures of critical molecules.. Because all three cold virus strains all contribute to the common cold, drug candidates failed as the surface features that permit rhinovirus C to dock with host cells and evade the immune system were unknown and different from those of rhinovirus A and ...

Many people suffer from common colds in day to day life. You children can be more receptive to colds through viruses. Children are more likely to spread germs than adults. This is because they are at a greater risk for contracting a cold due to exposure to many children in their surroundings. You can reduce the possibility of infections in your child by making your child wash hands regularly. You should also teach the child to close its mouth when sneezing.. Colds are more seen in newborn children. By six months, the immunity of the child reduces and they become prone to over 100 cold viruses.. Since children have close contact with their parents, they can get infection from them. Due to colds, the sinus and ear drainage passages and bronchial tubes are easily obstructed by mucus swelling.. How does Common Cold Affect your Child? ...
Posted on 24 February 2017. Scientists at the Universities of York, Leeds, and Helsinki say they are a step closer to cracking, what scientists have called, the Enigma Code of the common cold virus.. The research findings, published in Nature Communications, revealed the workings of a hidden code within the genome of Human Parechovirus, a member of the Picornavirus family that includes the common cold, polio, and hand foot and mouth disease. The work builds on a discovery made in 2015, when scientists at the Universities of Leeds and York, identified a set of encrypted signals in a plant virus with a single-stranded ribonucleic acid (RNA) genome, not too dissimilar to the structure of the Parechovirus, which infect humans and can cause sepsis-like illness and meningitis in children. They found that the details of the decoding mechanism appear identical in all strains of the virus, potentially allowing a single drug to treat them all, something that is not possible with a vaccine. Anti-viral ...
First signs of a common cold, also called an upper respiratory infection (URI), typically include a sore throat and runny nose, followed by coughing and sneezing. The common cold is caused by a virus. Antibiotics will not help you recover from a cold. If you catch a cold, its recommended that you get lots of rest, drink plenty of fluids, and avoid smoking and second-hand smoke. Colds can last from one to two weeks, but there are a number of ways to relieve symptoms. Over-the-counter (OTC) medications may help ease symptoms, but some products may contain medications or alcohol you dont need or want. Always use as directed and consult your health care provider if you have questions, especially if you have a chronic health condition or are taking other prescription or OTC medications. Below are some tips on how to feel better based on the symptoms you are experiencing:. ...
Pleconaril (Picovir) is an antiviral drug that was being developed by Schering-Plough for prevention of asthma exacerbations and common cold symptoms in patients exposed to picornavirus respiratory infections. Pleconaril, administered either orally or intranasally, is active against viruses in the Picornaviridae family, including Enterovirus and Rhinovirus. It has shown useful activity against the dangerous strain enterovirus D68. Pleconaril was originally developed by Sanofi-Aventis, and licensed to ViroPharma in 1997. ViroPharma developed it further, and submitted a New Drug Application to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2001. The application was rejected, citing safety concerns; and ViroPharma re-licensed it to Schering-Plough in 2003. The Phase II clinical trial was completed in 2007. A pleconaril intranasal spray had reached phase II clinical trial for the treatment of the common cold symptoms and asthma complications. However, the results have yet to be reported. In ...
The best way to avoid catching the common cold is to wash your hands frequently and avoid close contact with people who have colds. When around people with colds, do not touch your nose or eyes, because your hands may be contaminated with the virus.. People with colds should cough and sneeze in facial tissue and dispose of the tissue promptly, and then wash his or her hands immediately. In addition, cleaning surfaces with disinfectants that kill viruses can halt the spread of the common cold. Research has shown that rhinoviruses may survive up to three hours outside of the nasal mucosa.. ...
The common cold is a viral disease, it affects mostly on the respiratory system, also known as Coryza. This is the most common contagious disease and it is caused by Rhinoviruses. Scientists opine that human body can never develop a resistance to these viruses, which are responsible for the sickness. Rhinovirus alone is responsible for causing cold in 30%-35% of the adults. Some other well known viruses are Coronavirus, Parainfluenza virus, Adenovirus and respiratory syncytial virus, approximately 200 viruses are held responsible to cause the common cold. New viruses develop and that is the reason why our body cannot build resistance against them.. ...
When zinc lozenges are taken soon after noticing cold symptoms appear, the severity and length of the cold can be greatly reduced.
This double blind placebo controlled trial evaluated the effectiveness of a carrageenan nasal spray for the treatment of adult patients with common cold symptoms. This study confirms the results of earlier studies in adults and children. For patients compliant to the protocol and positive for a cold virus infection, a reduction of disease duration of 2.1 days was observed. The results therefore confirm that the local antiviral effectiveness of carrageenan leads to a significant clinical benefit. A pronounced trend was also observed in the ITT-VP population although differences did not reach the level of statistical significance. The main difference between the ITT-VP and PP-VP populations is the use of concomitant medication during the study. Patients were excluded from the PP analysis due to insufficient use of study medication when a reduction of dosage of more than 20% corresponding to 1.5 days of treatment was documented. Thus it can be concluded that tested dosage of 3 times per day is ...

Jennifer Ackerman has some of the answers for me. Her book, Ah-Choo!: The Uncommon Life of Your Common Cold, looks into, you guessed it, the common cold (which, by the way, isnt one strain of a virus, but a plethora of viruses. Thats why we can get sick over and over again...) Im sure Im not alone when I complain that we can put a man on the moon and yet we cant cure the sniffles. Ackerman meets with the people who have devoted their lives to solving that very problem. Did you know there are people who volunteer to get colds?? People sign up for studies in which theyre given germs and then studied. Sometimes the researchers give the subjects drugs to test. Other times, the subjects are studied for the symptoms they present with, the ways in which they spread germs, or the duration of their illnesses. In return for their suffering, theyre given financial compensation. I really hope I never need money that badly ...
Despite marketing claims to the contrary, there is no cure for the common cold. As explained in this eMedTV article, claims have been made for zinc, vitamin C, and echinacea -- but none of these can actually get rid of the common cold.
Researchers caution: It is too soon to say whether pre-existing immune cell memory affects COVID-19 clinical outcomes.. Your immune systems memory T cells keep track of the viruses they have seen before. This immune cell memory gives the cells a headstart in recognizing and fighting off repeat invaders.. Now, a new study led by scientists at La Jolla Institute for Immunology (LJI) shows that memory helper T cells that recognize common cold coronaviruses also recognize matching sites on SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.. The research, published on August 4, 2020, in Science, may explain why some people have milder COVID-19 cases than others - though the researchers emphasize that this is speculation and much more data is needed.. We have now proven that, in some people, pre-existing T cell memory against common cold coronaviruses can cross-recognize SARS-CoV-2, down to the exact molecular structures, says LJI Research Assistant Professor Daniela Weiskopf, Ph.D., who co-led the new ...

Rhinoviruses cause rhinovirus infection, popularly known as common cold. This is a most commonly occurring viral infection, affecting people. Let us understand the spread, symptoms, treatment and prevention of rhinovirus infection or common cold.
April 21st, 2015 at 12:42 pm Update 04/21/15:. http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2296/16/24. BMC Fam Pract. 2015 Feb 25;16(1):24. The effectiveness of high dose zinc acetate lozenges on various common cold symptoms: a meta-analysis.. BACKGROUND: A previous meta-analysis found that high dose zinc acetate lozenges reduced the duration of common colds by 42%, whereas low zinc doses had no effect. Lozenges are dissolved in the pharyngeal region, thus there might be some difference in the effect of zinc lozenges on the duration of respiratory symptoms in the pharyngeal region compared with the nasal region. The objective of this study was to determine whether zinc acetate lozenges have different effects on the duration of common cold symptoms originating from different anatomical regions.. METHODS: We analyzed three randomized trials on zinc acetate lozenges for the common cold administering zinc in doses of 80-92 mg/day. All three trials reported the effect of zinc on seven respiratory symptoms, and ...
Preparations of the plant Echinacea are widely used in some European countries and in North America for common colds. Echinacea preparations available on the market differ greatly as different types (species) and parts (herb, root or both) of the plant are used, different manufacturing methods (drying, alcoholic extraction or pressing out the juice from fresh plants) are used and sometimes also other herbs are added.. We reviewed 24 controlled clinical trials with 4631 participants investigating the effectiveness of several different Echinacea preparations for preventing and treating common colds or induced rhinovirus infections. Our review shows that a variety of products prepared from different Echinacea species, different plant parts and in a different form have been compared to placebo in randomized trials. Due to the significant differences in the preparations tested, it was difficult to draw strong conclusions. Five trials were rated as having a low risk of bias in all five categories of ...

Because studies have inconsistently targeted the multiple cardinal symptoms of the common cold (e.g., rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, postnasal discharge, throat clearing, cough), the evidence on how to best treat any one symptom is not strong. Therefore, the Duke Center for Clinical Health Policy Research (which conducted an evidence-based review of the literature for the ACCP guideline committee) limited its review to cough.4 Clinically, there are several reasons why it makes sense to target cough caused by the common cold: the common cold, which is the most prevalent condition in humans, is accompanied by cough in up to 83 percent of persons5; the common cold is the most prevalent cause of acute cough6; and cough is the most common complaint seen by primary care physicians in the ambulatory setting in the United States,7 probably because cough adversely affects health-related quality of life.6. Although acute cough from the common cold is usually transient and minor, it may be life threatening ...

On occasion, it can also cause bad breath.. Sinusitis can develop when a common cold persists and blocks your sinuses. Blocked sinuses trap bacteria or viruses in the nasal mucus. This causes sinus infection and inflammation.. Acute sinusitis can last for up to twelve weeks, but its usually curable. Your doctor may suggest over-the-counter pain relievers, decongestants, and possibly antibiotics. Inhaling steam can also bring relief. To do this, pour boiling water into a bowl or pan, then bend over it with a towel over your head and inhale the steam. A hot shower and saline nasal sprays may also help.. If youre having sinusitis symptoms or if your cold symptoms persist for longer than 10 days, contact your doctor. Serious complications may arise if sinusitis is left untreated, though this is rare.. ...

We went to a nearby walk-in clinic that day on Saturday and the doctor diagnosed it as a common cold rash. He said it must have started on Thursday since I noticed a bit of it on Friday. The doctor says that if you get it, you only get it once in your lifetime. As adults, most of us have already gotten it. It is contagious and can spread easily among young children. Once the rash goes away, Tristan will have antibodies for them. Its so strange I didnt know about this before. Maybe we all had this as babies when we got sick and dont remember any of it? Normally, the rash lasts maybe 5 days. We were told to treat Tristan with a bath using Aveeno soothing baby bath treatment. It is also important for him not to get too hot since that makes the rash worst and to keep him hydrated. We followed all the recommendations and were pleased to say that the doctor was right :) Tristans rash is pretty much all gone now! Now all we have to get rid off is his nasty cough and runny nose ...
The herbal remedy echinacea could halve a persons risk of catching a cold, say US researchers. Echinacea is native to North American prairies and is thought to boost the bodys immune system. Researchers from the University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy say it can also decrease the odds of developing a common cold by 58% and its duration by a day-and-a-half. Published inside The Lancet Infectious Diseases, the scientists reviewed 14 different studies on Echinaceas effects on the immune system. People were 86% less likely to catch a cold when taking Echinacea combined with a vitamin C supplement. Echinacea alone reduced their chances of falling ill by 65%. When given to people directly inoculated with a rhinovirus, echinacea reduced their chances of catching a cold by 35%. The scientists say more research is needed to check that the safety of the different echinacea formulas, before making any recommendations.. The Lancet Your comments: (Terms and conditions apply).

Chicken broth - hot, comfy and tasty. The best to drink when you have cold. In 2000 the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha studied the effects of drinking broth to treat the common cold. They found that some components inhibit migration of granulocytes, which may have anti-inflammatory activity. However, the study was carried out on purified cells by which the effect of the research is debatable. Also it showed that chicken broth comprises an amino acid - cysteine, which is very similar to acetylcysteine, which is used by doctors to treat bronchitis or other respiratory diseases. Acetylcysteine ​​can be obtained from of chicken feathers and skin. Pharmacologically Acetylcysteine ​​as other mucolytics thins mucus and facilitates expectoration. In clinical laboratory broth inhibited the migration of white blood cells, neutrophils, which are involved in lung tissue response to various infections. It manifests itself cough and increased secretion of bronchial mucus. They found ...

Around here it means a trip out to the wilderness, to The Mission. I doubt if you could find this place if you didnt know where it was. But a whole lot of people know where it is. Why call it a mission? Its run by missionaries. Missionaries know all kinds of remedies. They used to go to Africa a lot, but theyve gotten too old now and hung up their spurs. While they were in Africa, terrible things sometimes happened. Sister Cecilia told me of a family that all came down with yellow fever, I think it was. Some of them died. I went to the Mission and asked about Sister Cecilia. Another missionary that I didnt know took me over to a

Only symptomatic treatment is available for uncomplicated cases of the common cold: bed rest, plenty of fluids, gargling with warm salt water, petroleum jelly for a raw nose, and aspirin or acetaminophen to relieve headache or fever.. A word of caution: several studies have linked the use of aspirin to the development of Reyes Syndrome in children recovering from influenza or chicken pox. Reyes syndrome is a rare but serious illness that usually occurs in children between the ages of three and 12 years. It can affect all organs of the body, but most often injures the brain and liver. While most children who survive an episode of Reyes Syndrome do not suffer any lasting consequences, the illness can lead to permanent brain damage or death. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends children and teenagers not be given aspirin or any medications containing aspirin when they have any viral illness, particularly chicken pox or influenza. Many doctors recommend these medications be used for ...
THURSDAY, Oct. 15, 2015 (HealthDay News) -- Enterovirus D68 made headlines in 2014 when it sickened scores of kids across North America, but a new study says the aggressive virus proved no more deadly than other common cold germs.. The virus was more aggressive, spreading quickly and causing understandable alarm, said Dr. Dominik Mertz, lead author of the study and an assistant professor of infectious diseases at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada.. Children who came down with enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) also were more likely to have serious difficulty breathing, compared to kids who caught other viruses, Mertz and his colleagues found.. But children with EV-D68 didnt have a greater risk of death than kids with other viral infections, the researchers found. Youngsters with the virus were also not significantly more likely to need admission to an intensive care unit (ICU), the study authors reported.. They came in sicker, but the disease didnt progress to a critical level more frequently than ...

In the elderly, immunosenescence and malnourishment can contribute to increased risk and severity of upper respiratory tract infections (URTI). Gold kiwifruit (Actinidia chinensis Hort16A) contains nutrients important for immune function and mitigation of symptoms of infection, including vitamins C and E, folate, polyphenols and carotenoids. The objective of the present study was to evaluate whether regular consumption of gold kiwifruit reduces symptoms of URTI in older people, and determine the effect it has on plasma antioxidants, and markers of oxidative stress, inflammation and immune function. A total of thirty-two community-dwelling people ( ≥ 65 years) participated in a randomised crossover study, consuming the equivalent of four kiwifruit or two bananas daily for 4 weeks, with treatments separated by a 4-week washout period. Participants completed the Wisconsin Upper Respiratory Symptom Survey-21 daily, and blood samples were collected at baseline and at the end of each treatment and ...
Rhinovirus, cause of the common cold (Picornaviridae family, RNA virus), coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Rhinoviruses are seen infecting the surface of a nasal epithelial cell (nasopharynx). The nasopharynx lies behind the nose and above the level of the soft palate. The rhinovirus, or picornavirus, is a tiny icosahedral virus (30nm) that spreads easily in the air by droplets produced by coughing, sneezing. The virus may infect mucous membranes of the nose and also the lungs causing bronchitis. There are no treatments that can kill a rhinovirus. There are over 100 types of rhinoviruses and they cause 30-35% of the common cold in humans. Rhinoviruses can live up to 3 hours on your skin or other objects. Infection occurs rapidly, with the virus adhering to surface receptors within 15 minutes of entering the respiratory tract. The incubation period is generally 8-10 hours before symptoms begin to occur. Magnification: x25,050 when shortest - Stock Image C032/0424
What is a Cold? A cold is a viral infection that usually affects the nose, throat, larynx and upper respiratory system. Colds are highly contagious. The usual symptoms of a cold are: runny nose or nasal congestion, sneezing, sore throat, hoarseness, dry cough, blocked or popping ears, body aches or a feeling of being rundown. Colds are self-limiting conditions which usually last about 7-10 days. All that you can do for a cold is to treat each cold symptom separately to make yourself more comfortable. Allergy symptoms are sometimes similar to cold symptoms. When in doubt - check with your health care provider.. Can You Prevent a Cold? Not really, but there are some common sense precautions you can take. Get adequate rest and exercise to keep your bodys defenses up. Keep the humidity up in your house or room, and dont smoke.

So, lets take a way to look at the idea of homeopathic individualization for the common cold. Yes, there is a homeopathic cure for the common cold. I put that word cure in quotes because the only really final cure for the human suffering condition is death. All else is simply a modification of the normal happy health state along the life path.. In reality, though, we do not homeopathically to affect any named disease. We give a remedy to affect the altered physiological state that led to the symptoms then given a disease name. So, while I say the homeopathic cure for the common cold, we do not treat the cold. We really only treat that physiological state that gave rise to the cold.. The remedies do not cure, they only stimulate the bodys physiology to return to a more well state. Then, there are no symptoms we can call the cold, only good health.. Although this logic may sound like a semantic game, these distinctions really get to the heart of how homeopathy thinks about ...
A new study led by Childrens National Health System shows that in infants who were born severely premature, human rhinovirus infections appear to trigger airway hyper-reactivity, which leads to wheezing, hyperinflation and more severe respiratory disease.
Human metapneumovirus is related to the respiratory syncytial virus, measles, mumps and parainfluenza viruses. It infects people of all ages but is most common in children under five.
