Identification of multiple dysregulated metabolic pathways by GC-MS-based profiling of lung tissue in mice with PM-induced asthma.

The risk of development of asthma, a multi-faceted chronic disease, increases as a result of exposure to PM. However, the mechanism underlying asthma-related metabolic changes caused by PM exposure is...

Metabolic Pathways Fueling the Endothelial Cell Drive.

Endothelial cell (EC) metabolism is important for health and disease. Metabolic pathways, such as glycolysis, fatty acid oxidation, and amino acid metabolism, determine vasculature formation. These me...

The association of prenatal risk factors with childhood asthma.

The purpose of the study was to examine the relationship of maternal complications during pregnancy and prenatal exposures with childhood asthma among low-income families in Karachi, Pakistan.

Lessons Learned From GWAS of Asthma.

Asthma is a common complex disease of the airways. Genome-wide association studies (GWASs) of asthma have identified many risk alleles and loci that have been replicated in worldwide populations. Alth...

Favorable response to asthma-dosed subcutaneous mepolizumab in eosinophilic pneumonia.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Pollutants, present in air, which exhibit radioactivity.

Air pollutants found in the work area. They are usually produced by the specific nature of the occupation.

Brain disorders resulting from inborn metabolic errors, primarily from enzymatic defects which lead to substrate accumulation, product reduction, or increase in toxic metabolites through alternate pathways. The majority of these conditions are familial, however spontaneous mutation may also occur in utero.

Substances which pollute the environment. Use for environmental pollutants in general or for which there is no specific heading.

Pollutants, present in soil, which exhibit radioactivity.
