Summary of "Fine particulate matter (PM) enhances airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) by inducing necroptosis in BALB/c mice."

To observe the effects of prolonged exposure to high concentrations of PM on the trachea and lungs of mice and to determine whether the damages to the trachea and lung are induced by necroptosis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Barriers used to separate and remove PARTICULATE MATTER from air.

Visible gaseous suspension of carbon and other particulate matter emitted from burning substances.

Earth or other matter in fine, dry particles. (Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed)

A form of bronchial disorder with three distinct components: airway hyper-responsiveness (RESPIRATORY HYPERSENSITIVITY), airway INFLAMMATION, and intermittent AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION. It is characterized by spasmodic contraction of airway smooth muscle, WHEEZING, and dyspnea (DYSPNEA, PAROXYSMAL).

Any substance in the air which could, if present in high enough concentration, harm humans, animals, vegetation or material. Substances include GASES; PARTICULATE MATTER; and volatile ORGANIC CHEMICALS.
