The clinical diagnosis of acute rhinosinusitis (ARS) in children is challenging, due to the overlapping of symptoms with other ordinary childhood nasal diseases, such as viral upper respiratory tract infections and allergic rhinitis, not to mention the difficulties related to physical assessment. ARS in children is defined as the sudden onset of two or more of the following symptoms, lasting less than 12 weeks: discoloured nasal discharge, nasal blockage/ obstruction/congestion, cough in the day and nighttime. Rhinosinusitis is an inflammatory process involving the mucosa of the nose and sinuses. It is a multifactorial disease, in which factors such as mucociliary impairment, infection, allergy and swelling of the nasal mucosa can contribute to its genesis, maintenance and recurrence. Antibiotics are the most frequently used therapeutic agents in ARS, while there is reasonable evidence to support the addition of intranasal steroids 1.

Andrographis paniculata is an annual herbaceous plant of the family Acanthaceae, native of India and Sri Lanka. The herb has a number of purported medicinal uses, although research has found that evidence of its effectiveness is limited to the treatment of upper respiratory tract infections, ulcerative colitis and rheumatic symptoms. Kan Jang contains Andrographis paniculata and Eleutherococcus senticosus and may shorten the duration and lessen the symptoms of common cold.
The phytoneering product has antiviral effects against adenovirus C subtype 5 (Adeno 5), human rhinovirus B subtype 14 (HRV 14) and the long strain of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), in all of which the dry extract was significantly superior to oral drops (Fig. 1) 3.
Percentage of inhibition of viral replication with a 120 μm/ml of Sinupret for parainfluenza viruses (Para 3), influenza viruses (FluA), coxsackie viruses (CA9), adenoviruses (Adeno 5), human rhinoviruses (HRV 14) and respiratory syncytial viruses (RSV) (from Glatthaar-Saalmüller et al., 2011 3, mod.).
In an animal study, rats and rabbits were inoculated with Strep. pneumoniae to provoke bacterial rhinosinusitis and then treated with the phytoneering product, which brought about a statistically significant reduction in bacterial growth after 8 days 4.
The efficacy against bacterial infections of the upper airways was tested in mice inoculated intranasally with Strep. pneumoniae to induce bacterial rhinosinusitis. It significantly reduced bacterial growth (p
The major limitation of this study was that there was no placebo group or untreated control group. Acute rhinitis is often a self-limiting syndrome, so that a control group is necessary in such studies. Further limitations were the variable dosing, lack of information about the treatment period, and large percentage of the patients (74%) taking concomitant cold/flu medication, such as rhinological agents and/or antibiotics.
A randomised, open-label, comparative study was conducted in 134 patients with radiologically diagnosed ARS. All subjects were treated for 3 weeks with phytoneering sugar-coated tablets. After 3 weeks of treatment, 49% of patients were reported as having "nothing abnormal detected" or "improved" 17. A limitation of the study was the lack of an untreated or placebo control group. It is unclear whether the 49% of patients showed improvements at 3 weeks due to the treatment or if rhinosinusitis resolved spontaneously.
A further randomised, open-label, comparative study was conducted in 114 patients with radiologically (X-ray) diagnosed ARS. All subjects were treated for 21 days with the phytoneering sugar-coated tablets. After 21 days of treatment, X-ray examination revealed that 12.3% (7/57) of phytoneering herbal drug-treated patients had improved and 56.1% (32/57) were without pathological findings. Approximately 85% of these subjects reported that they were "improved" or "cured" 18. This study was also limited by the need for an untreated or placebo control group. Moreover, the researchers permitted the use of associated drugs, which could have affected the outcome.
A multicentre randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was conducted in 386 adult patients with acute viral rhinosinusitis diagnosed radiologically (ultrasonography). One hundred and ninety subjects were treated with 160 mg phytoneering herbal product three times a day for 15 days with a mean follow-up of 14 days.
The major symptom score (rhinorrhoea, post nasal drip, nasal congestion, headache and facial pain) after 15 days was statistically significantly lower in the phytoneering herbal drug group, with 48.4% of patients considered cured. After treatment, ultrasonography showed 73.2% of patients treated with herbal drug were without pathological findings (vs. 61.6% in the placebo-treated group) 19.
A randomised double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was conducted on populations of 152 adults with acute nonpurulent rhinosinusitis. A dose of 600 mg of cineole daily was administered. After 4 and 7 days, the symptoms-sumscore was significantly lower in treatment group 25.
This review of clinical findings has shown that Sinupret is helpful in enhancing the results of pharmaceutical therapy. However, preliminary results evaluating the efficacy of Sinupret in the treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis are ambiguous and larger prospective studies are needed.
Considering the primary outcome of efficacy and safety in the treatment of acute and chronic rhinosinusitis in children, herbal medicine can be considered as a viable ancillary therapy, as it is well tolerated by patients and not disdained by families or paediatricians. Various studies have reported improvements in subjective symptoms associated with ARS, such as nasal obstruction and headache, as well better recovery by radiographic examination and in nasal mucosal swelling. Regarding the secondary outcome of safety, Sinupret does have pharmacological effects, as demonstrated by research in vitro and in experimental animals. The effects that correlate with a potentially helpful role in the treatment of ARS in children are the antiviral and antimicrobial effects of Sinupret and 1,8-cineole, and the anti-inflammatory and secretolytic effects of Sinupret and bromelain.
The Rhinoceros Party (sometimes referred to in English as the Second Rhinoceros Party), officially the Parti Rhinocéros Party, is a Canadian federal-level political party. It was known as neorhino.ca until 2010, when the party changed its name, registering a new party logo. It was created in Montreal on May 21, 2006, and recognized by Elections Canada as being eligible for registration on August 16, 2007, and an official political party on August 23, 2007. It is the successor to the Rhinoceros Party of Canada.
The party was founded by François "Yo" Gourd, who was involved with the original incarnation of the First Rhinoceros Party. He has said that he named the new party (then under the name "neorhino") for the Rhinoceros Party and for Neo, the Matrix character. The party is led by Sébastien Côrriveau (who used the names "Sébastien CôRhino Côrriveau" and "Sébastien CoRhino" when running in the 2015 and 2019 federal elections, respectively).
The party claimed to be the spiritual descendants of Cacareco, a Brazilian rhinoceros who was "elected" member of São Paulo's city council in 1958, and listed Cornelius the First, a rhinoceros from the Granby Zoo, east of Montreal, as its leader. It declared that the rhinoceros was an appropriate symbol for a political party since politicians, by nature, are: "thick-skinned, slow-moving, dim-witted, can move fast as hell when in danger, and have large, hairy horns growing out of the middle of their faces".
The party used as its logo a woodcut of a rhinoceros by Albrecht Dürer, with the words D'une mare à l'autre (a French translation of Canada's Latin motto a mari usque ad mare, playing on the word mare, which means pond in French) at the top.
François Gourd, a prominent Rhino, later started another political movement, the entartistes, who attracted attention in the 1990s by planting cream pies in the faces of various Canadian politicians. In 2006, he led a group that set up Neorhino.ca in an attempt to recapture the Rhinoceros Party spirit, and ran as a Neorhino candidate in the 2007 Outremont by-election.
After the party's dissolution, a number of independent election candidates informally claimed the Rhinoceros Party label even though the party itself no longer existed. There were also a number of unsuccessful attempts to revive the Rhinos as a legally incorporated political party, though this was not fully achieved until Neorhino.ca.
On August 17, Sébastien CôRhino declared in Montréal he was willing to nationalize Tim Hortons and privatize the Royal Canadian Army at the same time : "We'll look at the results after five years, after 10 years, after 50 years and with the results of these studies we'll be able to determine if other economic sectors should also be nationalized or be privatized."Montreal candidate Ben 97 also publicly announce he wants to move the capital to Kapuskasing, Ontario. That would bring democracy closer to Canadians, because Kapuskasing is in the center of Canada.
Background: Pain, delayed oral intake and postoperative bleeding are major concerns in the recovery period following tonsillectomy. Despite others, surgical instruments may have an influence on the postoperative morbidity. Coblation-Tonsillectomy (CTE) is a novel technque based on radiofrequency transmitted through a medium of physiological saline solution which results in sodium ions, which are able to breakdown intercellular bonds at a temoperature
I am told today when asking why win10 makes PC slower, another horror story, win10 monitors every PC prog install even if its not running or minimised, when win7 ignores such. Win 10 is faster on same hardware compared to win 10. I do a simple search with my cataloging prog and it takes 35% longer to find same file as it did on win7 (same hardware), just swopped out the C drive SSD. 041b061a72
