This cross-sectional study of adult caregivers of patients with congenital athymia used both a quantitative survey and qualitative interviews. Caregivers of patients currently receiving supportive care responded to questions about the past 12 months.
Respiratory viruses evolve to maintain infectivity levels that permit spread yet prevent host and virus extinction, resulting in surprisingly low infection rates. Respiratory viruses harnessed as gene therapy vectors have illustrated this limitation. We used directed evolution in an organotypic human airway model to generate a highly infectious adeno-associated virus.
Overactive bladder (OAB) is characterized by urgency and frequency with (OAB wet) or without (OAB dry) urge urinary incontinence (UUI). In the phase 3 EMPOWUR trial, vibegron—a selective β3-adrenergic receptor agonist for the treatment of OAB—significantly improved daily number of urgency episodes and micturitions vs. placebo (P < 0.01).
Pharmacologic treatment for overactive bladder (OAB), which is characterized by bothersome symptoms such as urgency and urge urinary incontinence (UUI), includes anticholinergics and β3-adrenergic receptor agonists.
Patients were randomized to once-daily vibegron 75 mg or placebo for 28 days and underwent ambulatory BP monitoring. The primary endpoint was change from baseline (CFB) to day 28 in mean daytime ambulatory systolic BP (SBP).
Serotonin plays a key role in the development and maintenance of the pathobiology associated with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Platelet-driven and locally produced serotonin from lung tissue and arterial endothelial cells induce excessive growth of pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells.
