Autonomic nervous system effects have been hypothesized as a mechanism of air pollutant health effects, though scant prior epidemiologic research has examined the association between air pollutants and catecholamines.

Evidence of the effects of long-term exposure to fine particulate matter (PM) air pollution on the development of dyslipidaemia is limited. This study aimed to investigate the association between long...
Recent studies suggest that air pollution may play a role in gastrointestinal disorders. However, the effect of long-term exposure to air pollution on childhood irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is uncle...
Telomere length (TL) has been suggested to be a surrogate for cellular ageing, and a record of cumulative inflammation and oxidative stress over life. An emerging body of evidence has associated expos...
Although numerous studies have speculated about the direct and indirect linkage between long-term air pollution (i.e., PM) concentrations and mental health in developed countries, evidence for develop...
There is some evidence to suggest an association between ambient air pollution and development of Parkinson's disease (PD). However, the small number of studies published to date has reported inconsis...
The aim of this study is to investigate whether or not short-term expose to air pollution is associated with in-hospital outcomes, such as mortality and morbidity.
Asthma can be caused by many factors, including mold, pollen, and other airborne pollutants. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect that air pollution has on the long-term sev...
This cluster randomized controlled study evaluates the effect of a tailored observation, reflection and communication tool on used by long-term care facility staff on antibiotic prescripti...
Fine particulate matter < 2.5 microns (PM2.5) air pollution is a leading global risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. PM2.5 presents a serious ongoing public health threa...
The BREATHE (Behavioral Research of Environment and Air Pollution Through Education) study is a pilot randomized control trial comparing the efficacy of a classroom-based intervention to n...
A urinary anti-infective agent effective against most gram-positive and gram-negative organisms. Although sulfonamides and antibiotics are usually the agents of choice for urinary tract infections, nitrofurantoin is widely used for prophylaxis and long-term suppression.
Health insurance to provide full or partial coverage for long-term home care services or for long-term nursing care provided in a residential facility such as a nursing home.
Persons who have experienced prolonged survival of HIV infection. This includes the full spectrum of untreated, HIV-infected long-term asymptomatics to those with AIDS who have survived due to successful treatment.
A persistent increase in synaptic efficacy, usually induced by appropriate activation of the same synapses. The phenomenological properties of long-term potentiation suggest that it may be a cellular mechanism of learning and memory.
A persistent activity-dependent decrease in synaptic efficacy between NEURONS. It typically occurs following repeated low-frequency afferent stimulation, but it can be induced by other methods. Long-term depression appears to play a role in MEMORY.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) Erectile Dysfunction Urology Urology is the branch of medicine concerned with the urinary tract and diseases that affect it. Examples include urethritis, urethrostenosis and incontinence. Urology is a su...
