27. Consequences of long-term oral corticosteroid therapy and its side-effects in severe asthma in adults: a focused review of the impact data in the literature (Abstract)

Consequences of long-term oral corticosteroid therapy and its side-effects in severe asthma in adults: a focused review of the impact data in the literature This review provides an overview of the role of long-term treatment of severe asthma with oral corticosteroids (OCS) and its associated side-effects in adults. It is based on a systematic literature search conducted in MEDLINE, Embase and the Cochrane Library to identify relevant studies. After a short overview of severe asthma and its (...) treatment we present studies showing a dose-response relationship in asthmatic patients treated with OCS and then consider by organ systems the undesired effects demonstrated in clinical and epidemiological studies in patients with OCS-dependent asthma. It was found that the risk of developing various OCS-related complications, including infections, diabetes and osteoporosis as well as psychiatric disorders, was higher for patients with long-term exposure to OCS compared with control groups.

31. Safety and Side Effects of Rifampin versus Isoniazid in Children. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Safety and Side Effects of Rifampin versus Isoniazid in Children. The treatment of latent infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis is important in children because of their vulnerability to life-threatening forms of tuberculosis disease. The current standard treatment - 9 months of isoniazid - has been associated with poor adherence and toxic effects, which have hampered the effectiveness of the drug. In adults, treatment with 4 months of rifampin has been shown to be safer and to have higher (...) completion rates than 9 months of isoniazid.In this multicenter, open-label trial, we randomly assigned 844 children (<18 years of age) with latent M. tuberculosis infection to receive either 4 months of rifampin or 9 months of isoniazid. The primary outcome was adverse events of grade 1 to 5 that resulted in the permanent discontinuation of a trial drug. Secondary outcomes were treatment adherence, side-effect profile, and efficacy.

34. Slow Infusion of Low-dose Ketamine Reduces Bothersome Side Effects Compared to Intravenous Push: A Double-blind, Double-dummy, Randomized Controlled Trial (Abstract)

Slow Infusion of Low-dose Ketamine Reduces Bothersome Side Effects Compared to Intravenous Push: A Double-blind, Double-dummy, Randomized Controlled Trial We compared the analgesic efficacy and incidence of side effects when low-dose (0.3 mg/kg) ketamine (LDK) is administered as a slow infusion (SI) over 15 minutes versus an intravenous push (IVP) over 1 minute.This was a prospective, randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, placebo-controlled trial of adult ED patients presenting with moderate (...) to severe pain (numerical rating scale [NRS] score ≥ 5). Patients received 0.3 mg/kg ketamine administered either as a SI or a IVP. Our primary outcome was the proportion of patients experiencing any psychoperceptual side effect over 60 minutes. A secondary outcome was incidence of moderate or greater psychoperceptual side effects. Additional outcomes included reduction in pain NRS scores at 60 minutes and percent maximum summed pain intensity difference (%SPID).Fifty-nine participants completed

The catheter is a device inserted through the cervix, where inflated balloons put pressure on the cervix helping it to “ripen” and start contractions. Prostaglandin drugs are the current recommended induction method, but uterine (womb) overstimulation, where contractions become too frequent or long, is a recognised side effect. This trial found that with either method half of women went on to a vaginal delivery within 24 hours and avoided the need for a caesarean
