Effect of Different Exercise Lactic Acid Levels on the Immune System Response
Moran Saghiv*, Chris Sherve, Michael Sagiv, David Ben-Sira
High-intensity exercise may cause tissue damage, production of stress hormones, increased lactic acid levels and alterations in the function and quantity of various immune cells. To improve sprinter’s anaerobic performance, athletes devote large portions of their training program to speed and anaerobic work. Thus, increases in blood lactic acid concentration, are associated with increased maximum performance which in turn may alter lymphocyte subsets.
Omalizumab Experience in Asthma Patients with Bronchiectasis
Fatih Uzer, Zehra Boztepe, Aykut Cilli1
Asthma is one of the most common lung diseases in the world and characterised by chronic airway obstruction. Omalizumab is a recombinant human monoclonal antibody being used as a fifth line treatment of asthma. Several studies in the literature have shown that omalizumab treatment maintains symptom control and decreases steroid requirement. A few studies have shown that bronchectasia may disrupt asthma control. We aimed to investigate the efficacy of omalizumab in asthma patients with bronchiectasis.
