Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of ATP Cough in Chronic Cough Patients

2018-11-01 15:25:19 | BioPortfolio


Persistent cough is a distressing symptom for people with respiratory disorders. Patients also often experience an ongoing urge-to-cough that prompts coughing, and which fails to resolve the sensation. Understanding how the brain controls cough and the urge-to-cough could lead to new cough suppressing therapies. The overall objective of this project is to use functional brain imaging (fMRI) to identify brain regions that are involved in the exaggerated urge-to-cough in humans with chronic cough. Our focus will be on the brainstem where information from the airways first arrives in the central nervous system.

Dual Tasking Influences Cough Sensorimotor Outcomes in Healthy Young Adults.

Purpose Reflex cough is an essential airway protective mechanism that often occurs in the context of divided attention. The effect of divided attention on measures of reflexive cough airflow and sensi...

Heterogeneity of cough neurobiology: Clinical implications.

Cough is an important protective mechanism for clearing the airways but becomes a troublesome, and often difficult to treat, symptom in respiratory disease. Although cough can be produced as a reflex ...

What is Chronic Cough? Terminology.

Terminology used to define clinical cough is based on features such as duration, underlying causes and associated characteristics such as whether the cough is 'dry' or 'productive'. Terms such as 'Ref...

Doxycycline inhibits NAcht Leucine-rich repeat Protein 3 inflammasome activation and interleukin-1β production induced by Porphyromonas gingivalis-lipopolysaccharide and adenosine triphosphate in human gingival fibroblasts.

To investigate the effect of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) on inflammasome activation by Porphyromonas gingivalis-lipopolysaccharide (P. gingivalis-LPS) stimulation and the anti-inflammatory eff ;ec...

The voltage-gated sodium channel Na1.8 blocker A-803467 inhibits cough in the guinea pig.

Cough in respiratory diseases is attributed to the activation of airway C-fibers by inflammation. Inflammatory mediators can act on multiple receptors expressed in airway C-fibers, nonetheless, the ac...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An adenine nucleotide containing three phosphate groups esterified to the sugar moiety. In addition to its crucial roles in metabolism adenosine triphosphate is a neurotransmitter.

1,N-6-Ethenoadenosine triphosphate. A fluorescent analog of adenosine triphosphate.

Membrane-bound proton-translocating ATPases that serve two important physiological functions in bacteria. One function is to generate ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATE by utilizing the energy provided by an electrochemical gradient of protons across the cellular membrane. A second function is to counteract a loss of the transmembrane ion gradient by pumping protons at the expense of adenosine triphosphate hydrolysis.

The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
