Despite all the efforts made up to now, the reasons that facilitate a protein becoming an allergen have not been elucidated yet. Alt a 1 protein is the major fungal allergen responsible for chronic asthma, but little is known about its immunological activity. Our main purpose was to investigate the ligand-dependent interactions of Alt a 1 in the human airway epithelium.

Airway remodeling, which encompasses structural changes in airway is a main feature of asthma. Interleukin-33 (IL-33) has been reported to be a vital cytokine in airway remodeling in asthma, but the u...
Despite a broad cell-type tropism, cytomegalovirus (CMV) is an evidentially pulmonary pathogen. Predilection for the lungs is of medical relevance in immunocompromised recipients of hematopoietic cell...
Aging is characterized by a progressive loss of physiological integrity, leading to impaired organ function and, ultimately, increased vulnerability to death. Many complex diseases are related to agin...
Airway failures are the second leading cause of potentially preventable death on the battlefield. Improvements in airway management depend on identifying current challenges. We sought to build on prev...
Pediatric airway disorders may be congenital (anatomical) or acquired (infectious) and may involve the upper, lower, or entire airway, with obstruction being a common feature. The pathophysiology of u...
In the current study researchers aim to evaluate the rate of the complication due to airway mangement (during intubation or placement of supraglottic airway devices)
Rhinitis, or inflammation of the nasal mucosa, can present with nasal obstruction, nasal discharge, itch or sneezing. If the sinusal mucosa is involved as well, it is called rhinosinusitis...
The primary objective of this study is to compare the amount of implant marginal bone loss radiographically and probing depth in between thin and thick mucosa group that will receive a mac...
The incidence of difficult airway in paediatric population is up-to date not well described. Difficult airway is connected with significant airway-related morbidity and mortality. The majo...
Supraglottic airway tools, one of the tools used in the management of the difficult airway. American Society of Anesthesiologists and the Difficult Airway Society of the United Kingdom air...
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).
The structural changes in the number, mass, size and/or composition of the airway tissues.
Evaluation, planning, and use of a range of procedures and airway devices for the maintenance or restoration of a patient's ventilation.
A thin leaf-shaped cartilage that is covered with LARYNGEAL MUCOSA and situated posterior to the root of the tongue and HYOID BONE. During swallowing, the epiglottis folds back over the larynx inlet thus prevents foods from entering the airway.
A form of cutaneous tuberculosis. It is seen predominantly in women and typically involves the NASAL MUCOSA; BUCCAL MUCOSA; and conjunctival mucosa.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
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...
