Genotoxic Evaluation of Mexican Welders Occupationally Exposed to Welding-Fumes Using the Micronucleus Test on Exfoliated Oral Mucosa Cells: A Cross-Sectional, Case-Control Study.

An estimated 800,000 people worldwide are occupationally exposed to welding-fumes. Previous studies show that the exposure to such fumes is associated with damage to genetic material and increased can...

Evaluation of the Solitary Pulmonary Nodule.

A solitary pulmonary nodule is a common radiologic finding that is often discovered incidentally and may require significant workup to establish a definitive diagnosis. A solitary pulmonary nodule is ...

Lung carcinoma presenting as a solitary, painless frontal bone lump.

A 50-year-old patient, a smoker, was admitted to the hospital, with a solitary scalp lump. Subcutaneous lumps of the scalp are common but usually benign; however, the painless lump in our patient turn...

Single and Combined Exposure to Zinc- and Copper-Containing Welding Fumes Lead to Asymptomatic Systemic Inflammation.

Recently, it has been shown that exposure to welding fumes containing both zinc and copper leads to asymptomatic systemic inflammation in humans as shown by an increase of blood C-reactive protein. In...

A solitary pulmonary ground-glass nodule in adult systemic langerhans' cell histiocytosis.

During a thoracic computed tomography (CT) scan, a 36-year-old male was diagnosed with a solitary oval pulmonary mixed ground-glass nodule in the right upper lobe of the lung. The edge of the nodule w...

Clinical Trials [3843 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Lung Nodule Surveillance Trial

This study will compare two clinically accepted protocols for surveillance imaging in individuals who are found to have a small pulmonary nodule on chest computed tomography (CT) scans.

Evaluate the Auxiliary Diagnostic Value of Circulating Tumor Cells in Benign and Malignant Lung Nodules

By testing the CTC number of new solitary pulmonary nodule patient, evaluating the correlation of CTC number and benign and malignant lung nodules auxiliary diagnosis, the correlation of C...

Bronchoscopic Approach to the Peripheral Lung Nodule - An Alternative Approach

Patients presenting with solitary or multiple lung nodules often require tissue confirmation in order to guide further management and determine if the lesion is benign or malignant. Severa...

(PET) Imaging in the Management of Patients With Solitary Pulmonary Nodules

All patients with a new, untreated solitary pulmonary nodule (SPN) between 7 mm and 3 cm in diameter identified by chest x-ray, will be approached to undergo positron emission tomography (...

Mobile Lung Nodule Observatory for Worldwide, Evidenced-based Research

Patients with lung nodules may develop a variety of potentially severe symptoms. These symptoms may impact a patient's quality of life and lead to difficult treatment. Through this researc...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A single lung lesion that is characterized by a small round mass of tissue, usually less than 1 cm in diameter, and can be detected by chest radiography. A solitary pulmonary nodule can be associated with neoplasm, tuberculosis, cyst, or other anomalies in the lung, the CHEST WALL, or the PLEURA.

A form of pneumoconiosis resulting from inhalation of iron in the mining dust or welding fumes.

A benign, non-neoplastic, usually self-limiting epithelial lesion closely resembling squamous cell carcinoma clinically and histopathologically. It occurs in solitary, multiple, and eruptive forms. The solitary and multiple forms occur on sunlight exposed areas and are identical histologically; they affect primarily white males. The eruptive form usually involves both sexes and appears as a generalized papular eruption.

A small round or oval, mostly subcutaneous nodule made up chiefly of a mass of Aschoff bodies and seen in cases of rheumatic fever. It is differentiated from the RHEUMATOID NODULE which appears in rheumatoid arthritis, most frequently over bony prominences. (From Dorland, 27th ed)

Gray matter located in the dorsomedial part of the MEDULLA OBLONGATA associated with the solitary tract. The solitary nucleus receives inputs from most organ systems including the terminations of the facial, glossopharyngeal, and vagus nerves. It is a major coordinator of AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM regulation of cardiovascular, respiratory, gustatory, gastrointestinal, and chemoreceptive aspects of HOMEOSTASIS. The solitary nucleus is also notable for the large number of NEUROTRANSMITTERS which are found therein.
