Dimethindene maleate during the treatment of pruritus associated with varizella Zoster virus infection in children.


Overview: The efficacy and tolerability of dimethindene maleate (CAS 3614-69-5, DMM, Fenistil®) in the form of drops in the treatment of pruritus in children with varicella, using two different doses of dimethindene maleate and placebo are investigated. In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, multi-center clinical study was included 128 children aged from 1 to 6 years. Patients had used DMM preparation 0.1 mg / kg / day or 0.05 mg / kg / day or placebo, respectively. All patients applied a commercially available astringent lotion for the topical treatment of cutaneous lesions. The primary criterion of efficacy was the change in the severity of pruritus (in points) for the end of treatment compared to baseline, which was estimated as the area under the baseline (AUB). The statistically significant superiority in reducing the severity of pruritus during the treatment by both doses of DMM preparation in comparison with placebo is shown. Statistically significant differences between the two groups of the treatment by DMM preparation are absent.

Key words: antihistamines, CAS 3614-69-5, varicella, dimethindene maleate, Fenistil® drops, portability, pruritus.

Suppression of interleukin (IL)-8 and human beta defensin-2 secretion in LPS-and/or IL-1 β-stimulated airway epithelial A549 cells by a herbal formulation against respiratory infections (BNO 1030).


Aim of the study: A special ethanolic-aqueous extract from seven traditional medicinal plants (BNO 1030) has been used for several decades to treat recurrent infections of the respiratory tract. Considering the potential role of interleuldn-8 (IL-8) and human beta defensin-2 (h D-2) in inflammation, we investigated the effect of BNO 1030 on lipopolysaccharide (LPS) from Pseudomonas aeruginosa or IL-1-1 -induced inflammatory mediators in А549 human type II alveolar epithelial cells.

Materials and methods: A549 cells were stimulated with LPS (100 g/ml) or IL-1β (50 ng/ml)in the presence of the preparation and the secretion of IL-8 and h D-2 were measured after 18 h and 24 h in cell free supernatants using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA). Cell viability and cell growth was investigated by propidium iodide uptake and WST-1 assay, respectively.

Results: BNO 1030 inhibited the secretion of IL-8 and h D-2 at non-cytotoxic concentrations (0.1-100 g/ml; cell growth inhibitory concentration, 50% (ІС50) =678±87.6 g/ml). Stimulation by IL-1β led to a 7-fold activation of IL-8 secretion, which was reduced by 37.7±4.1% (p<0.05) after incubation with 100 g/ml BNO 1030. Inducible h D-2 was suppressed by 91.8±15,6% (p<0.01) at the same concentration of BNO 1030 (IC50=0.7±0.1 g/ml). The 2-fold increase of IL-8 secretion by LPS-stimulated cells was completely abolished at concentration of 50 ) g/ml BNO 1030 (IC50=5.7±3.6 g/ml).

Conclusion: BNO 1030 suppressed the secretion of IL-8 and h D-2 in cultured epithelial A549 cells. These results support its use as a phytotherapeutic product prepared from traditional remedies in inflammatory diseases, especially those affecting the respiratory tract.

Keywords: Interleukin-8, Human beta defensin 2, Herbal preparation Imupret®, Respiratory А54Э cells, Anti-inflammatory effect.

Probiotic Escherichia coli Nissle 1917 versus placebo for treating diarrhea of greater than 4 days duration in infants and toddlers.


Background: Administering probiotics can prevent or cure some forms of diarrhea. The efficacy of probiotic Escherichia coli Nissle 1917 (EcN) in infants and toddlers with diarrhea >4 days was tested by a double-blind trial.

Methods: One hundred fifty-one children aged 1–47 months with nonspecific diarrhea were randomized to receive either EcN suspension (N=75) or placebo (N=76). Diarrhea had to meet the following definition: >3 watery or loose nonbloody stools in 24 hours of a diarrheal episode persisting for >4 consecutive days but < or =14 days. All children were well nourished or only moderately malnourished, mildly dehydrated, and received oral rehydration at study commencement. They were treated orally with 1–3 mL EcN suspension (1 mL contains 10 viable cells) or placebo daily for 21 days. Primary objective was to confirm a better response rate (reduction of daily stool frequency to < or =3 watery or loose stools over > or =4 days) with EcN.

Results: The 7-day response was higher for the EcN group than placebo (EcN 78.7%, placebo 59.2%). Significant differences were observed on days 14 (EcN 93.3%, placebo 65.8%, P=0.0017) and 21 (EcN 98.7%, placebo 71.1%, P<0.001). Kaplan-Meier survival analysis resulted in a significant difference of 3.3 days between the groups (P<0.0001); median time to response for EcN waas 2.4 and 5.7 for placebo. EcN was safe and well tolerated.

Conclusions: In the conditions of this trial EcN was a suitable remedy for diarrhea >4 days in young children.

Risk factors of «breast feeding» jaundice development.


Objective: To identify risk factors of «breast feeding» jaundice by assessing of physical development and clinical course of the disease in children in the first months of life.

Patients and methods. The main group included 37 children in the age of 1 month, who were under the treatment with a diagnosis of «Conjugational jaundice»; the control group included 30 healthy children of similar age with physiological jaundice in anamnesis, who were exclusively nursing. Inclusion criteria were certifications about the presence of hyperbilirubinemia (due to indirect bilirubin), the absence of an inflammatory pathology, lack of concomitant somatic pathology, exclusive breast feeding and birth in time. The general clinical research methods, evaluation of physical development with the help of the WHO Anthro, blood chemistry were used.

Results. Sex differences in the frequency of «breast feeding» jaundice are not observed. In children of both sexes at birth presented significantly low body weight (less than -2 standard deviations) at normal body length. Significant risk factor for the «breast feeding» jaundice development is the child's weight gain in the first month of life on 600 g and less. A weak positive correlation between the level of total bilirubin and ALT levels and also between total bilirubin level and the level of thymol are found.

Conclusions. The main etiologic factor of «breast feeding» jaundice should be considered not reduction of bilirubin conjugation in the liver but the lack of breast feeding which is leads to a relative starvation and increased reabsorption of unconjugated bilirubin.

Key words: «breast feeding» jaundice, indirect bilirubin, children.

Features of the autonomic nervous system functioning during the forming of osteoarthrosis in girls-adolescents.


The goal — to clarify the mechanisms of osteoarthritis (OA) development based on studying of the features of vegetative support and responsiveness in girls-patients depending on the source type of autonomic tone.

Patients and methods. A total of 41 girls aged 15–18 years with osteoarthritis were observed. Vegetative state regulation was studied by the method of heart rate variability (HRV) in a horizontal position and quiet breathing. The type of original autonomic tone is determined by the data of sympathetic-vagal balance (LF / HF), depending on the values of which (vagotonia, normotoniya, sympathicotony) patients were divided into three groups. Radiographic changes in the joints were evaluated according to the Kellgren classification.

Results. The focus of neurohumoral regulation in patients with OA depends on the activity of units VNS. The most commonly diagnosed domination of the power of the energy spectrum SNA. In the group of girls with sympathicotonic fields where observed low functional capacity of autonomous regulatory mechanisms against the domination of the influence of the central contour. First of all, it was shown by insufficient contribution of HF to the overall power of neurohumoral spectrum at rest. Active orthostatic test revealed a decrease in reactivity of sympathetic component of the spectrum in such patients. During the vagotonia in girls were observed slightly better values of HRV than during the sympathic, especially TP, that is point on a great opportunity of neurohumoral support due to activity of the lower levels of government. But there was a significant instability of the neuro-humoral regulation.

Conclusions. The features of neuro-humoral regulation depending on the activity of units of the autonomic nervous system are found. In girls the most frequently diagnosed domination of power energy spectrum of the sympathetic nervous system with severe abnormalities in heart rate variability, as in rest so during the active orthostatic test.

The features of pituitary-gonadal system changes in adolescents with functional diseases of digestive system in the setting of autonomic dysfunction.


Objective: To determine the role of gonadotropins in the genesis of autonomic disorders in adolescents with functional diseases of digestive system.

Patients and methods. A total of 164 persons, 76 boys (46.3%) and 88 girls (53.7%) were under observation. The baseline autonomic tone has been studied with the use of tables and forms. The functional state of the autonomic nervous system was assessed by analysis of heart rate variability by the method of cardiointer-valography. Vegetative support (ensuring adequate vegetative behavior) was determined by ortoclinostatic sample. The functional state of the pituitary-gonadal system was evaluated according to the somatic-sexual development, the level of gonadotropins (FSH and luteinizing hormones) and peripheral function of the gonads.

Results. According to the study the gastroesophageal reflux disease was diagnosed in 54 (32.9%) patients, functional dyspepsia — in 58 (35.4%), gallbladder dysfunction — in 52 (31.7%). All of the surveyed revealed the presence of autonomic dysfunctions. Functional disorders of the digestive system against autonomic dysfunction were accompanied by disorders of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal system that is manifested primarily by the changes of gonadotropin-releasing hormone concentrations in blood plasma.

Conclusions. Pituitary-gonadal system is actively involved in the system of neuroendocrine regulation. During the different clinical forms of functional lesions of the digestive system in adolescents revealed the single-type of vector changes in hormonal status that is shown the dominant role of neuroendocrine mechanisms in the pathogenesis of these diseases.
