A. // International Archives of Occupational & Environmental Health;May2001, Vol. 74 Issue 4, p242 

    As known from studies in animal and human subjects, ozone can exert effects on the immune response including allergic sensitisation and allergen responsiveness. The objective of the present study was to assess the changes in lymphocyte subsets in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) after single...

    Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) infections rarely affect the pleura, accounting for 5–15% of pulmonary MAC. We report a case of MAC pleural effusion in an otherwise immunocompetent young patient. A 37-year-old healthy female with no past medical history was admitted to the hospital with...

Pat // Journal of Infectious Diseases;1/1/2008, Vol. 197 Issue 1, p109 

    Background. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is readily detectable in the lungs of infected subjects and leads to an accumulation of CD8+ lymphocytes in the alveolar space. Although highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) is effective in reducing viremia, less is known about its effect on...

    Background: Tuberculous pleural effusion (TPE) is one of the most common forms of extrapulmonary tuberculosis. Because most studies of TPE focused on the pleural space, little information regarding lung parenchyma is available. We therefore aimed to investigate immune responses in the lung...
