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...
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 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.
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...
Mepolizumab targets eosinophils in the treatment of asthma. The dose used for asthma is considerably lower than that used for treating eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis, a recently approve...
Societies become increasingly urban - more than half the world's population now lives in cities. Urbanization elevates anthropogenic (man-made) exposure to air pollutants. A clear associat...
Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are chronic inflammatory airway diseases affecting millions of people worldwide. Inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) are by far the most e...
This study uses a crossover study design to examine the impact of a two-week bedroom based indoor air filtration on the concentration of indoor airborne pollutants, personal exposure to ai...
Exposure to airborne allergens and pollutants is linked to symptom severity of allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems. In this study an air purifier using photo-electrochemical o...
This study will test laryngeal adaptation in speech and swallowing function in healthy adults, in patients with cerebral stroke, and in patients with spinocerebellar ataxia type 6. The fin...
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.
Asthma is caused by inflammation of small tubes, called bronchi, which carry air in and out of the lungs. If you have asthma, the bronchi will be inflamed and more sensitive than normal. When you come into contact with something that irritates your...
Asthma COPD Cystic Fibrosis Pneumonia Pulmonary Medicine Respiratory Respiratory tract infections (RTIs) are any infection of the sinuses, throat, airways or lungs. They're usually caused by viruses, but they can also ...
