The efficacy of the standardized quality (SQ) house dust mite (HDM) sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) has been demonstrated for respiratory allergic disease. However, the effect of SLIT on inflammation and structural changes of the airways are still unknown.

We previously reported that wall area percent (WAP), a quantitative CT (QCT) indicator of airway wall thickness and, presumably, inflammation, is associated with adverse longitudinal expiratory flow t...
In allergen-specific immunotherapy for asthma, antigens attached to dendritic cells increase the tryptophan metabolism in these cells and alter the Th17/Treg balance in the airways. Tryptophan metabol...
Progranulin (PGRN), mainly produced by immune and epithelial cells, has been known to be involved in the development of various inflammatory diseases. However, the function of PGRN in allergic airway ...
Long-term exposure to aeroallergens such as house dust mite (HDM) could result in airway inflammation and airway remodeling, characteristic features of allergic asthma. Huangqi-Fangfeng (HF), an impor...
Difficult airway management is closely related to the safety and quality of medical care. However, the low incidence of correct prediction of difficult airway in clinical screening tests presents phys...
Studies have shown that the prevalence of respiratory symptoms, airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) and asthma is high and increasing in elite athletes. The inflammation seen in the airways o...
Primary: The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of the Aerobika® device on the aerosol deposition pattern of concomitant inhalation medication using FRI. Se...
Asthma is a major noncommunicable chronic inflammatory disorder which is characterized by airway inflammation and related to pathological modifications of the bronchial wall structure so c...
Exhaled breath condensate (EBC) has emerged as a novel noninvasive technique for assessment of airway inflammation, and it provides information on airway lining fluid composition. Traditio...
The primary objective of this pilot study is to establish a model of neutrophil airway inflammation for future testing of anti-inflammatory substances in an early stage of clinical develop...
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 type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.
A gel-forming mucin that is predominantly expressed by submucosal glands of airway tissues and the SUBLINGUAL GLAND. It is one of the principal components of high molecular weight salivary mucin.
