Comparing Expectorated and Induced Sputum and Pharyngeal Swabs for Cultures, AFB Smears, and Cytokines in Pulmonary Nontuberculous Mycobacterial Infection

Background: - Pulmonary nontuberculous mycobacterial infection is a respiratory infection that is sometimes difficult to diagnose. Proper diagnosis depends on accurate collection of ...

Clinical Evaluation of FilmArray LRTI Panel

The purpose of the Prospective Clinical Evaluation of the FilmArray Lower Respiratory Tract Infection (LRTI) Panel BioFire Study #DX-SDY-024947 is to collect data in support of the proposa...

Sputum Validation for the Molecular Diagnosis of Respiratory Viral Infections in Cystic Fibrosis

The aim of this pilot study is to demonstrate the feasibility of viral biomolecular diagnosis in sputum compared to nasopharyngeal swab in cystic fibrosis acute respiratory infection.

A Prospective, Epidemiological Study to Assess the Disease Burden of Respiratory Syncytial Virus Associated, Suspected Lower Respiratory Tract Infections in Newborns, From Birth up to 2 Years of Age

The purpose of this study is to assess the incidence and associated healthcare utilization of RSV-associated, suspected LRTI in a general population of infants from birth up to 2 years of ...

Atrial Fibrillation and Characterization of Blood Platelet

Arterial thromboembolism constitutes a major risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) requiring antithrombotic therapy. Platelets and microparticles (MPs) are important for hemostasis and thrombos...

Sputum ANCAs in EGPA: Time to Start Sampling the Right Compartment?

The CF-Sputum Induction Trial (CF-SpIT) to assess lower airway bacterial sampling in young children with cystic fibrosis: a prospective internally controlled interventional trial.

Pathogen surveillance is challenging but crucial in children with cystic fibrosis-who are often non-productive of sputum even if actively coughing-because infection and lung disease begin early in lif...

Role of Venous Sampling in the Diagnosis of Endocrine Disorders.

Venous sampling is the gold standard for localizing abnormal hormone secretion in several endocrine disorders. The most common indication for venous sampling is in the workup of primary aldosteronism,...

High HMGB1 levels in sputum are related to pneumococcal bacteraemia but not to disease severity in community-acquired pneumonia.

During bacterial infections, damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) and pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) activate immune cells. Here, we investigated whether plasma and sputum leve...

Effect of increased inspiratory muscle work on blood flow to inactive and active limbs during submaximal dynamic exercise.

What is the central question of this study? Increased respiratory muscle activation is associated with neural and cardiovascular consequences via the respiratory muscle metaboreflex. Does increased sy...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Sampling of blood levels of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by withdrawal of blood from the inferior petrosal sinus. The inferior petrosal sinus arises from the cavernous sinus and runs to the internal jugular vein. Sampling of blood at this level is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of Cushing disease, Cushing syndrome, and other adrenocortical diseases.

Hemorrhagic and thrombotic disorders that occur as a consequence of abnormalities in blood coagulation due to a variety of factors such as COAGULATION PROTEIN DISORDERS; BLOOD PLATELET DISORDERS; BLOOD PROTEIN DISORDERS or nutritional conditions.

A sampling methodology using small sample sizes when conducting surveys in small geographical or population-based areas or lots.

A method for diagnosis of fetal diseases by sampling the cells of the placental chorionic villi for DNA analysis, presence of bacteria, concentration of metabolites, etc. The advantage over amniocentesis is that the procedure can be carried out in the first trimester.

Material coughed up from the lungs and expectorated via the mouth. It contains MUCUS, cellular debris, and microorganisms. It may also contain blood or pus.
