Combination tiotropium + formoterol superior to tiotropium alone in COPD patients

As reported in Pulmonary Pharmacology & Therapeutics, combination tiotropium (18 mcg) + formoterol (12 mcg) was superior to tiotropium alone in COPD (n=44) patients inadequately controlled with bronchodilator monotherapy. Combination therapy resulted in an increased bronchodilator response (FEV1 and FVC) and a maximum change in FEV1 and FVC over 24 h.

Green tea reduces BP and improves lipid profile

As reported in Nutrition, Metabolism, and Cardiovascular Diseases, a meta-analysis involved 20 RCTs and 1536 participants showed that consumption of green tea (Camellia sinensis) is associated with a reduction in systolic blood pressure (-1.94 mmHg) and improved lipid profile (TC, -0.13 mmol/l; LDL-C, -0.19 mmol/l). Additional studies quantifying the association are needed.

Belimumab safe and effective in childhood-onset SLE

As reported in Arthritis and Rheumatology, belimumab (a human monoclonal antibody targeting soluble B-lymphocyte stimulator) is effective and well-tolerated in children with SLE (n=7). The mean follow-up was 9.3 months. The SLEDAI decreased from 6.4 to 4 and 57% of recipients were able to taper steroids. Clinical response was evident by 3 months.
