Sphk2 mice are protected from obesity and insulin resistance.

Sphingosine kinases phosphorylate sphingosine to sphingosine 1‑phosphate (S1P), which functions as a signaling molecule. We have previously shown that sphingosine kinase 2 (Sphk2) is important for i...

Metabolic adaptation of airway smooth muscle cells to a SPHK2 substrate precedes cytostasis.

Thickening of the airway smooth muscle is central to bronchial hyperreactivity. We have shown that the sphingosine analog AAL-R can reverse pre-established airway hyperreactivity in a chronic asthma m...

Examination of the role of sphingosine kinase 2 in a murine model of systemic lupus erythematosus.

Systemic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disease characterized by overproduction of type 1 IFN that causes multiple organ dysfunctions. Plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) that secrete large amou...

To Breathe or Not to Breathe.

Lower airway microbiota associates with inflammatory phenotype in severe preschool wheeze.

Targeting the lower airway microbiome may provide a novel approach to prevention of preschool wheezing attacks.

This randomized, double-blind, parallel group, placebo-controlled study demonstrated statistically significant differences in subjective measures of nasal airway breathing immediately afte...

The Breathe Well Program for Adults With Asthma

The Breathe Well Study is a pragmatic, controlled trial to assess the effectiveness, cost-effectiveness, and implementation of the Breathe Well intervention, which combines evidence-based ...

Post-extubation Assessment of Laryngeal Symptoms and Severity

The goal of this study is to learn more about voice and airway problems that patients experience during and after the time patients have an oral endotracheal tube in patients' airway to he...

Effects of a "Walk, Eat, & Breathe" Nursing Intervention For Patients With Esophageal Cancer

The purpose of this stratified randomized controlled trial (RCT) is to test the effects of Walk, Eat, & Breathe on preserving patients' nutritional status, functional walking capacity, pul...

Popcorn Lung: the Discovery of a New Disease

Recently, an epidemic of pulmonary disease has been recognized among workers in a popcorn factory in Jasper, Missouri. The exposure agent has not yet been identified, but suspects include...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 cytoplasmic receptor and peroxin that contains a series of TETRACOTIPEPTIDE REPEATS and binds to PEROXISOME TARGETING SIGNAL 1 (SKL-type). It is essential for protein import into PEROXISOMES; mutations in the PEX5 gene are associated with PEROXISOMAL DISORDERS such as ZELLWEGER SYNDROME.

A cytoplasmic receptor and peroxin that contains a series of WD40 REPEATS and binds to PEROXISOME TARGETING SIGNAL 2. It is essential for protein import into PEROXISOMES; mutations in the human PEX7 gene are associated with PEROXISOMAL DISORDERS such as Type 1 CHONDRODYSPLASIA PUNCTATA, RHIZOMELIC.
