An elevated blood eosinophil count when asthma is stable predicts exacerbations and therapeutic response to corticosteroids or biologics targeting eosinophils. Few studies have examined the prognostic...
Bronchial asthma (BA) is a complex disease characterised by persistent inflammation. Exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) and blood eosinophil count (b-Eos) are biomarkers for type 2 endotype of BA.
Periostin is a matricellular protein as well as an extracellular matrix (ECM) protein belonging to the fasciclin family. Periostin plays important roles as a matricellular protein in the setting of al...
Fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) is a surrogate marker for airway inflammation, supporting the diagnostic pathway and treatment decisions for asthma patients.
The complete blood cell count (CBC) is one of the most frequently ordered laboratory tests, but some values included in the test may be overlooked. This brief review discusses 3 potentially underutili...
The aim of this multicenter, investigator-initiated, prospective, randomized, open-label, non-inferiority study is to evaluate a prednisone prescribing strategy, guided by eosinophil blood...
This is a randomised, controlled, cross-over study to determine the effect of indirect bronchial challenge testing upon volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the exhaled breath of adults wi...
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common malignancy worldwide and is often metastatic at diagnosis. Despite progresses in surgical techniques and the introduction of novel chemothe...
The aim of the research is to evaluate the clinical value of fractional exhaled nitric oxide(FeNO) ,impulse oscillometry(IOS) and mid-expiratory flow (MEF) in patients with cough variant a...
The purpose of this study is to determine mean or median of fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) in Thai atopic asthmatic children that divided into subgroups due to asthma exacerbation ...
In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
The number of LEUKOCYTES and ERYTHROCYTES per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD. A complete blood count (CBC) also includes measurement of the HEMOGLOBIN; HEMATOCRIT; and ERYTHROCYTE INDICES.
One of several basic proteins released from EOSINOPHIL cytoplasmic granules. Eosinophil cationic protein is a 21-kDa cytotoxic peptide with a pI of 10.9. Although eosinophil cationic protein is considered a member of the RNAse A superfamily of proteins, it has only limited RNAse activity.
A 19-kDa cationic peptide found in EOSINOPHIL granules. Eosinophil-derived neurotoxin is a RIBONUCLEASE and may play a role as an endogenous antiviral agent.
The number of WHITE BLOOD CELLS per unit volume in venous BLOOD. A differential leukocyte count measures the relative numbers of the different types of white cells.
A diagnostic test is any kind of medical test performed to aid in the diagnosis or detection of disease. For example: to diagnose diseases to measure the progress or recovery from disease to confirm that a person is free from disease Clin...
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...
