Chronic Hypersensitivity Pneumonia due to Pigeon Breeders Disease.

Pigeon breeders disease usually affects adults. Children are more likely to be affected when they share living space with a backyard poultry or pigeon breeding.

Utility of 12-lead and signal-averaged Holter electrocardiograms after pilsicainide provocation for risk stratification in Brugada syndrome.

Non-invasive risk stratification for ventricular fibrillation (VF) in Brugada syndrome (BrS) has not been fully evaluated. The aim of this study was to assess the utility of signal-averaged Holter ele...

Accuracy of a Rapid Diagnostic Test (Cypress Chagas Quick Test(®)) for the Diagnosis of Chronic Chagas Disease in a Nonendemic Area: A Retrospective Longitudinal Study.

We analyzed the accuracy of Chagas Quick Test(®), a rapid diagnostic test, for the diagnosis of chronic Chagas disease through a retrospective study on a cohort of 669 patients consecutively examined...

Ultra-long acting calcium channel blockers may decrease accuracy of the acetylcholine provocation test.

When drug-induced coronary spasm provocation tests are performed, a washout period of >48h for calcium channel blockers (CCBs) is uniformly recommended. However, each CCB has a distinct half-life, and...

The correlation between pulmonary fibrosis and methylation of peripheral Smad3 in cases of pigeon breeder's lung in a Chinese Uygur population.

Smad3 is a key protein in the transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β)/Smad signaling pathway, which is involved in fibrosis in many organs. We investigated the relationship between Smad3 gene methyla...

Measurement of Exhaled Nitric Oxide (NO) and Bronchial Provocation Test With Mannitol as a Predictor of Response to Inhaled Corticosteroids in Chronic Cough

Chronic cough is defined by its persistence beyond 8 weeks. Many conditions can explain the existence of a bronchial inflammation. In the management of chronic cough, the search for bronch...

Titrated Quantitative Conjunctival Provocation Test (tqCPT)

The clinical relevance of an allergen-specific sensitization is proven e.g., by allergen challenge tests in clinical routine. Several protocols for different challenge tests such as nasal ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Application of allergens to the nasal mucosa. Interpretation includes observation of nasal symptoms, rhinoscopy, and rhinomanometry. Nasal provocation tests are used in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity, including RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, SEASONAL.

Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.

A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.

In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.

An in vitro test used in the diagnosis of allergies including drug hypersensitivity. The allergen is added to the patient's white blood cells and the subsequent histamine release is measured.
