  • Esophageal lichen planus: towards diagnosis of an underdiagnosed disease. [Journal Article]
    Scand J Gastroenterol 2019; :1-10Schauer F, Monasterio C, … Kreisel W
  • CONCLUSIONS: Esophageal involvement of LP is frequent, but may be asymptomatic. ELP can be diagnosed using the diagnostic criteria proposed here. Dysphagia and combined oral and genital manifestation are associated with ELP. Therapy with topical corticosteroids appears to be a prudent therapeutic approach for ELP.
  • Step-Up Therapy in Black Children and Adults with Poorly Controlled Asthma. [Randomized Controlled Trial]
    N Engl J Med 2019; 381(13):1227-1239Wechsler ME, Szefler SJ, … NHLBI AsthmaNet
  • CONCLUSIONS: In contrast to black adolescents and adults, almost half the black children with poorly controlled asthma had a superior response to an increase in the dose of an inhaled glucocorticoid and almost half had a superior response to the addition of a LABA. (Funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute; BARD number, NCT01967173.).
  • Inhaled steroids with and without regular formoterol for asthma: serious adverse events. [Journal Article]
    Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019; 9:CD006924Janjua S, Schmidt S, … Cates CJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: We did not find a difference in the risk of death (all-cause or asthma-related) in adults taking combined formoterol and ICS versus ICS alone (moderate- to low-certainty evidence). No deaths were reported in children and adolescents. The risk of dying when taking either treatment was very low, but we cannot be certain if there is a difference in mortality when taking additional formoterol to ICS (low-certainty evidence).We did not find a difference in the risk of non-fatal SAEs of any cause in adults (high-certainty evidence). A previous version of the review had shown a lower risk of asthma-related SAEs in adults taking combined formoterol and ICS; however, inclusion of new studies no longer shows a difference between treatments (moderate-certainty evidence).The reported number of children and adolescents with SAEs was small, so uncertainty remains in this age group.We included results from large studies mandated by the FDA. Clinical decisions and information provided to patients regarding regular use of formoterol and ICS need to take into account the balance between known symptomatic benefits of formoterol and ICS versus the remaining degree of uncertainty associated with its potential harmful effects.
