The airway epithelium dysfunction in the pathogenesis of asthma: The evidence  [PDF]
Salvatore Leonardi, Alfina Coco, Michele Miraglia Del Giudice, Gianluigi L. Marseglia, Mario La Rosa
Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.52A044
Abstract:
Asthma is traditionally defined as a chronic, multisystem, multicellular disease characterized by bronchial hyper-responsiveness (BHR) and lung inflammation. In this illness is particularly involving the airway epithelium as the place where the inflammation begins, develops and often returns through airway remodelling. In specific way there is also an evolving awareness of the active participation of structural elements, such as the airway epithelium, airway smooth muscle, and endothelium, in this process. The airway inflammation and remodelling together likely explain the clinical manifestations of asthma that is demonstrated by complicated respiratory manifestations in which wheeze occurring secondary to bronchoconstriction in the setting of airway hyper-responsiveness and mucous hypersecretion. This is confirmed by also the histopathological analyses of bronchial biopsies from asthmatic subjects. For this reason is very important to understand the physiological role of the airway epithelium and their changes during the exacerbation of disease.
The cross-talk between family and pediatrician: The case of bronchial asthma  [PDF]
Salvatore Leonardi, Rossella Pecoraro, Maria Teresa Garozzo, Alfina Coco, Mario La Rosa
Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.52A041
Abstract:
Today the most important challenge facing the pediatrician is the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases. With this regard, pediatricians play a key role in the management of these conditions. The closeness with the family, the knowledge of the clinical case and the care continuity allow the pediatrician to acquire a position of director of every case. When pathological events have a chronic feature, suddenly the quality of life of the whole family changes. For this reason the first communication of chronic disease is very important and the task of the pediatrician should be to provide a positive message to help the family in facing the difficulty of this new challenge. The bronchial asthma is the most common chronic disease worldwide. The incidence, the prevalence, and the mortality of the disease have increased in children over the past decades. These trends are particularly marked above all in preschool children. The success reached by Pediatricians is closely related to the compliance and the implementation of the therapy followed by the little patient and his family. With this regard authors, in this review, focus on the illustration of several strategies, based on the pediatrician’ skills and medicine documents, that can be used for the improvement of communication among pedia- trician-family and child, never forgetting the hu- man aspect of the same doctor, that should con- ciliate with the scientific knowledge in the taking care of a specific chronic disease.
The immunopathogenesis of cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA)
Giovanna Vitaliti,Carla Cimino,Alfina Coco,Domenico Praticò
The Italian Journal of Pediatrics , 2012, DOI: 10.1186/1824-7288-38-35
Abstract: The most frequent symptoms among the manifestations of cow milk protein allergy (CMPA) are gastrointestinal. CMPA pathogenesis involves immunological mechanisms with participation of immunocompetent cells and production of immunoglobulin E (IgE). Nevertheless, recent studies have been focused on the description of other forms of CMPA, not-mediated by IgE reactions, mostly involving the T lymphocite immune system. Thus, in this field it is important to note how different kind of cells are involved in the immunopathogenesis of CMPA, such as antigen-specific T cells, T regulatory cells, cytokines secreted by the different T lymphocite subsets, B lymphocytes, antingen-presenting cells, mast cells, that together orchestrate the complex mechanism leading to the phenotipic expression of CMPA. The progress in the diagnosis of immunologic disorders allowed the recent literature to develop new models for immuno-mediate disorders, involving new cells (such as Treg cells) and thus allowing the acquisition of a new vision of the pathogenesis of atopic diseases. The aim of this review is to describe the immunopathogenetic aspects of CMPA in view of these new discoveries in the immunologic field, considering the immunologic pathway at the basis of both IgE- and not-IgE mediated CMPA.
Acute Mesenteric Ischemia: A Challenging Diagnostic Disease—Four Cases Reports and Literature Review (AMI)  [PDF]
Danilo Coco, Silvana Leanza
Advances in Molecular Imaging (AMI) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ami.2018.84006
Abstract: Acute Mesenteric Ischemia (A.M.I.) is a potentially life-threatening condition syndrome due to inadequate or completely absent blood supply through superior or inferior mesenteric artery. The etiologies are various. Early diagnosis is essential to improve the clinical outcome. Despite advances in knowledge of pathophysiology, laboratory diagnosis and imaging techniques, acute intestinal ischemia is still associated with mortality rates.

QCD studies in the forward region @ LHCb
Coco Victor
EPJ Web of Conferences , 2012, DOI: 10.1051/epjconf/20122802006
Abstract: The LHCb experiment at the LHC is fully instrumented over a unique pseudorapidity range in the forward region. Although it has been designed for b-physics, LHCb is able to provide valuable informations on particle production in this region of phase space. Therefore QCD studies have been performed with the LHCb detector on pp collisions at √s = 900 GeV and √s = 7 TeV. The measurement of charged particles multiplicity at √s = 7 TeV, Λˉ/Λ ${{ar Lambda } mathord{left/ {vphantom {{ar Lambda } Lambda }} ight. kern- ulldelimiterspace} Lambda }$ , Λˉ/Ks0 ${{ar Lambda } mathord{left/ {vphantom {{ar Lambda } {K_s^0}}} ight. kern- ulldelimiterspace} {K_s^0}}$ production ratios at √s = 900 GeV and √s = 7 TeV, as well as light hadrons (p, K, pi) production ratios at √s = 900 GeV and √s = 7 TeV are reported.
Monocromatismo de conos azules ligado a X: Una familia afecta
Coco Martín,RM;
Archivos de la Sociedad Espa?ola de Oftalmología , 2005, DOI: 10.4321/S0365-66912005000100007
Abstract: clinical case: a family affected by x-linked blue cone monochromatism is presented. there are 4 male affected individuals and 9 female carriers. discussion: the diagnosis of blue cone monochromatism is based on severely affected color vision with preserved blue function, poor visual acuity, nystagmus, nearly absent photopic erg, and a family pedigree compatible with x-linked inheritance. the female carriers showed normal visual function and ocular motility. it is important to be familiar with non progressive cone dysgenesis in order to make a genetic diagnosis of the illnesses in this group.

Monocromatismo de conos azules ligado a X: Una familia afecta X-linked blue cone monochromatism: A familial case report
RM Coco Martín
Archivos de la Sociedad Espa?ola de Oftalmología , 2005,
Abstract: Caso Clínico: Se presenta una familia afecta de monocromatismo de conos azules ligada a X. Hay 4 varones afectos y 9 mujeres portadoras identificadas. Discusión: El diagnóstico clínico de monocromatismo de conos azules se basó en la presencia de una visión de colores severamente afectada, mala AV, nistagmus, ERG fotópico casi ausente con conservación de la función azul, y una historia familiar compatible con herencia recesiva ligada a X. Las mujeres portadoras tenían función visual y motilidad ocular normal. Es importante conocer las disgenesias no progresivas de conos para poder hacer el diagnóstico genético de las enfermedades incluídas en este grupo.

Biorthogonal systems in Banach spaces
Michael A. Coco
Mathematics , 2003,
Abstract: We give biorthogonal system characterizations of Banach spaces that fail the Dunford-Pettis property, contain an isomorphic copy of $c_0$, or fail the hereditary Dunford-Pettis property. We combine this with previous results to show that each infinite dimensional Banach space has one of three types of biorthogonal systems.
