Evaluation of nasal mucociliary clearance time in children with celiac disease.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that develops because of sensitivity to gluten-containing grains in genetically disposed individuals. Nasal mucociliary clearance is the most important protect...

Measurement of mucociliary clearance in the patients with multiple sclerosis.

The aim of the present study was to measure nasal mucociliary clearance (NMC) time in the patients with MS and to compare the findings with healthy population.

Ciliary beat frequency in children with adenoid hypertrophy.

Children with adenoid hypertrophy (AH) have impaired respiratory system defense mechanisms, such as mucociliary clearance. We hypothesized that AH negatively affects one of the most important aspects ...

Whole body periodic acceleration in normal and reduced mucociliary clearance of conscious sheep.

The purpose of this investigation was to ascertain whether nitric oxide (NO) released into the circulation by a noninvasive technology called whole body periodic acceleration (WBPA) could increase muc...

Nasal Profile Hump Reduction Using the Let-Down Technique.

In rhinoplasty, the nasal dorsum represents an important aspect for form and function. Surgical management should be performed accurately to avoid complications. The goal for dorsal preservation is to...

Prefatory Study to Explore Changes in Nasal Mucociliary Clearance and to Standardize Nasal Scraping Procedure

This study intends to evaluate the nasal mucociliary clearance (NMC) by determining the value obtained for saccharin transit time (STT) test over the course of 12 hours following a single ...

Evaluating the Effect of Mucinex® 1200 mg on Mucociliary and Cough Clearance From the Human Lung

The purpose of this research study is to test the ability of Mucinex, an oral, over-the-counter, FDA approved expectorant) to stimulate the clearance of inhaled particles from the subject'...

Study of Humidified Air to Improve Mucociliary Clearance (MCC) in COPD

This purpose of this study is to determine whether nasal delivery of heated and humidified air for a period of 4 hours will improve the clearance of mucus from the lungs of patients with c...

Assessing Mucociliary Clearance and Airway Liquid Volume in the CF Airway

The objective of this study is to determine the effect of airway surface liquid (ASL) volume on mucociliary clearance in cystic fibrosis (CF). A two-isotope nuclear medicine technique will...

Mucociliary Clearance, Airway Inflammation and Nasal Symptoms in Urban Motorcycle-drivers

Professionals working in polluted areas may present increased airways symptoms and dysfunction. Rhinopharyngeal retrograde clearance (RRC) has been used to improve mucus clearance in infan...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A chronic inflammation in which the NASAL MUCOSA gradually changes from a functional to a non-functional lining without mucociliary clearance. It is often accompanied by degradation of the bony TURBINATES, and the foul-smelling mucus which forms a greenish crust (ozena).

A non-specific host defense mechanism that removes MUCUS and other material from the LUNGS by ciliary and secretory activity of the tracheobronchial submucosal glands. It is measured in vivo as mucus transfer, ciliary beat frequency, and clearance of radioactive tracers.

The discharge of substances from the pulmonary capillary blood into the alveolar space to be exhaled or removed by MUCOCILIARY CLEARANCE.

Process of evaluating the health of a patient and determining if they are healthy enough for surgery.

Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.
