Asthma is characterized by chronic bronchial inflammation, airway hyperresponsiveness induced by specific and nonspecific stimuli, reversible bronchial obstruction, and airway remodeling.

failure, arrythmia, stroke, and impaired glucose tolerance.[ 2 ] Therefore, accurate diagnosis and treatment of OSA is strongly recommended so as to improve quality of life and reduce the associated morbidity and mortality. Many factors can give rise to OSA, such as skeletal malformations, soft tissue crowding, and respiratory instability. Sometimes these factors are interacting. Thus, from a clinical point of view, the patient-directed therapeutic approaches should be individually scheduled based on personalized situation. The current treatment of OSA in China

Patients with severe pain intensity of bone and neuropathic origin should also be considered for the use of analgesic ladder step 3 opioids (opioids for moderate to severe pain, strong opioids) without moving up the analgesic ladder.

Galileo in Bethesda: The future of gene editing

Conference on Recombinant DNA Research, led by Paul Berg. The conference identified potential risks and decided on steps to prevent them. The practical guidelines agreed upon at the 1975 Asilomar meeting have been eminently successful in launching quality rDNA scientific research while avoiding the promulgation of dangerous genetically modified organisms or their products. To my knowledge, there have been no instances of any biologically significant problems associated with the development and implementation of this recombinant DNA technology. If the future of

[ 3 ] Better control of side effects has been the result of several steps: a better understanding of the underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms of CINV, the introduction of
