- Airwaves. // Thorax;Apr2009, Vol. 64 Issue 4, pi
An introduction is presented in which the editor discusses various reports within the issue on topics including respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), a cohort study of asthma patients and mast cells in the lungs.
- Small airway dysfunction by impulse oscillometry in asthmatic patients with normal forced expiratory volume in the 1st second values. Pisi, R.; Tzani, P.; Aiello, M.; Martinelli, E.; Marangio, E.; Nicolini, G.; Olivieri, D.; Chetta, A. // Allergy & Asthma Proceedings;Jan/Feb2013, Vol. 34 Issue 1, p112
Small airways are relevant to the pathophysiology of asthma. We investigated whether in asthmatic patients with normal forced expiratory volume in the 1st second (FEV1) values, impulse oscillometry system (IOS), as a measure of small airway function, contributed additional information to...
- Tolerizing allergic responses in the lung. Lloyd, C. M.; Murdoch, J. R. // Mucosal Immunology (1933-0219);Jul2010, Vol. 3 Issue 4, p334
The absolute requirement of the pulmonary immune system is to limit the inflammatory consequences of inhaled infectious agents while maintaining tolerance to harmless aeroallergens. This tolerance is maintained by a complex network of cells and molecules interacting with lung stromal cells....
- The whole-genome expression analysis of peripheral blood mononuclear cells from aspirin sensitive asthmatics versus aspirin tolerant patients and healthy donors after in vitro aspirin challenge. Wieczfinska, Joanna; Kacprzak, Dorota; Pospiech, Karolina; Sokolowska, Milena; Nowakowska, Magdalena; Pniewska, Ewa; Bednarek, Andrzej; Kuprys-Lipinska, Izabela; Kuna, Piotr; Pawliczak, Rafal // Respiratory Research;12/9/2015, Vol. 16, p1
Background:Up to 30% of adults with severe asthma are hypersensitive to aspirin and no unambiguous theory exists which provides a satisfactory explanation for the occurrence of aspirin-induced asthma (AIA) in some asthmatic patients. Therefore, the aim of this study was to compare...
- Attenuation of hypotensive effect of propranolol and thiazide diuretics by indomethacin. Watkins, John; Abbott, E. Carl; Hensby, Christopher N.; Webster, John; Dollery, Colin T. // British Medical Journal;9/13/1980, Vol. 281 Issue 6242, p702
