Bone complications possible with genetic reasonsDr Christina Haston, a researcher of the McGill University Health Centre research Institute, has remarked that genetic reasons are to be attributed as the cause behind bone complications accompanying cystic fibrosis.

The research article was published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine and the study was funded by the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, Valorisation Recherche Quebec, and the Fonds de la Recherche en Santé du Québec.

It was disclosed by this study that fragility of the bone can be attributed to genetics; this finding is expected to have critical implications for altering therapeutic practices.

Genetic reasons behind complications of bone identifiedAccording to a recently concluded study by Dr Christina Haston, a researcher of the McGill University Health Centre research Institute, the cause behind complications of the bone that is usually accompanying cystic fibrosis is genetic.

The research article was published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. This study was funded by the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, Valorisation Recherche Quebec, and the Fonds de la Recherche en Santé du Québec.

The study disclosed that bone fragility is caused by genetic reasons; this finding is expected to have implications for modifying therapeutic practices.

Genetic cause behind bone complications because of cystic fibrosisGenetic reasons have been suggested as the cause behind bone problems that generally accompany cystic fibrosis, according to a recent study by Dr Christina Haston, a researcher of the McGill University Health Centre research Institute.

The study by Dr. Haston suggested that genetics contribute to bone frailty, a finding that might have some implications in modifying therapeutic practices.

The research article was published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine and the study was funded by the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, Valorisation Recherche Quebec, and the Fonds de la Recherche en Santé du Québec.

Inhaled steroids beneficial for patients with cystic fibrosisAccording to a finding presented in an issue of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine and published by the American Thoracic Society, there is no difference in terms of benefits when comparisons are made between cystic fibrosis (CF) patients on inhaled corticosteroids and those who didn’t use inhaled steroids for six months.

Ian M. Balfour-Lynn, M.D., F.R.C.P., of the Department of Pediatric Respiratory Medicine at Royal Brompton Hospital in London, and six associates concluded that it is safe for the patients to stop using corticosteroids for lowering their drug burden, save money, and minimize adverse side effects.

Dr. Balfour-Lynn remarked that replacing the corticosteroids with a placebo was safe as it did not led to a significant increase in lung-related adverse effects leading to withdrawal from the study, nor an increased need for oral corticosteroids.

Cystic fibrosis patients can stop using inhaled corticosteroidsPatients suffering from cystic fibrosis (CF) and not making use of inhaled corticosteroids show no positive or negative effects in terms of major disease factors when compared to those regularly using corticosteroids.

Disease factors include the amount of lung function decline, number of prescribed antibiotics, onset time of acute chest exacerbation or frequency of using a bronchodilator.

It was concluded by Ian M. Balfour-Lynn, M.D., F.R.C.P., of the Department of Pediatric Respiratory Medicine at Royal Brompton Hospital in London, and six associates, that it is safe for patients to stop use of inhaled corticosteroids to reduce their drug burden for saving money as well as minimizing potential adverse side effects.

Stopping Inhaled Corticosteroids Is Safe On Cystic Fibrosis PatientsCystic fibrosis (CF) patients who regularly use inhaled corticosteroid and those who did not use these drugs for six months showed no positive or negative effects in terms of major disease factors. This proves that stopping inhaled corticosteroid usage does not cause problems in cystic fibrosis patient users.

The team of Dr. Ian M. Balfour-Lynn of the Department of Pediatric Respiratory Medicine at Royal Brompton Hospital in London claimed that it is safe for CF patients to stop using inhaled corticosteroids in order to lower their drug burden, to reduce potential adverse side effects, and to save money.

The research team pointed out that they were not advocating stopping inhaled corticosteroid use in all CF patients, but urging clinicians to assess the need in each individual.

Inhaled Corticosteroids Reduce Lung InflammationCorticosteroids reduce different kinds of inflammation including inflammation of the lungs in cystic fibrosis. It helps reduce mucus and allows person with allergic broncho pulmonary aspergillosis to breathe easier. These drugs are given as a pill or liquid, as an injection, or with an inhaler.

Oral form of corticosteroids is usually used for short-term use because of its side effect. Inhaled form, however, may be used for longer periods of time.

Inhaled corticosteroids are usually prescribed to people who need long-term use of this medication due to its few side effects.
