Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An autosomal recessive genetic disease of the EXOCRINE GLANDS. It is caused by mutations in the gene encoding the CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRANSMEMBRANE CONDUCTANCE REGULATOR expressed in several organs including the LUNG, the PANCREAS, the BILIARY SYSTEM, and the SWEAT GLANDS. Cystic fibrosis is characterized by epithelial secretory dysfunction associated with ductal obstruction resulting in AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION; chronic RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS; PANCREATIC INSUFFICIENCY; maldigestion; salt depletion; and HEAT PROSTRATION.
A chronic suppurative and cicatricial disease of the apocrine glands occurring chiefly in the axillae in women and in the groin and anal regions in men. It is characterized by poral occlusion with secondary bacterial infection, evolving into abscesses which eventually rupture. As the disease becomes chronic, ulcers appear, sinus tracts enlarge, fistulas develop, and fibrosis and scarring become evident.
Presence of air in the mediastinal tissues due to leakage of air from the tracheobronchial tree, usually as a result of trauma.
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.
A slowly progressive condition of unknown etiology, characterized by deposition of fibrous tissue in the retroperitoneal space compressing the ureters, great vessels, bile duct, and other structures. When associated with abdominal aortic aneurysm, it may be called chronic periaortitis or inflammatory perianeurysmal fibrosis.
Rosai-Dorfman disease is rare and typically presents with cervical lymphadenopathy. The disease is generally indolent and self-limited, but it carries a poor or fatal prognosis when it is advanced or...
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of contrast-enhanced MR angiography (CE-MRA) and the added benefit of unenhanced proton MR angiography compared with CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) in p...
Much attention recently has been focused on stem cell technology as a possible alternative modality of treatment of a variety of diseases. Chronic kidney disease is a serious health problem and most c...
The prognosis and management of chronic liver diseases in children largely depend on the extent and progression of liver fibrosis, which is often the most important predictor of disease outcome, and t...
OBJECTIVE: Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension is a rare form of pulmonary hypertension that can lead to progressive right heart failure and death. Pulmonary thromboendarterectomy surgery is...
The purpose of this study is to determine different risk factors of thromboembolic disease. Different points will be studied 1. do different types of thromboembolic disease (distal DVT,...
The present trial investigates a possible use of oral bosentan, which is currently approved for the treatment of symptoms of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), to patients suffering fr...
The objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of PEG-Intron vs. no treatment for the prevention of fibrosis progression in adult subjects with moderate to severe liver...
The aim of the study is to compare the results regarding fracture healing and functional outcome after the treatment of proximal humeral fractures with the four different treatment metho...
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection causes different disease spectrum ranging from minimal progressive liver disease to cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma. Evidence indicates that host ge...
