2014-08-27 03:13:53 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The present study is part of a project titled 'Magnesium in asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease'. The hypothesis of the main project is that a daily magnesium supplement will benefit patients with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

The aim of this part of the project is to study the effect of a daily magnesium supplement on the grade of bronchial hyperreactivity in asthmatics.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Magnesium oxide (MgO). An inorganic compound that occurs in nature as the mineral periclase. In aqueous media combines quickly with water to form magnesium hydroxide. It is used as an antacid and mild laxative and has many nonmedicinal uses.

Magnesium chloride. An inorganic compound consisting of one magnesium and two chloride ions. The compound is used in medicine as a source of magnesium ions, which are essential for many cellular activities. It has also been used as a cathartic and in alloys.

A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of magnesium in the diet, characterized by anorexia, nausea, vomiting, lethargy, and weakness. Symptoms are paresthesias, muscle cramps, irritability, decreased attention span, and mental confusion, possibly requiring months to appear. Deficiency of body magnesium can exist even when serum values are normal. In addition, magnesium deficiency may be organ-selective, since certain tissues become deficient before others. (Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, 12th ed, p1936)

Inorganic compounds that contain magnesium as an integral part of the molecule.

A generic term for a variety of compounds that contain silicon, oxygen, and magnesium, and may contain hydrogen. Examples include TALC and some kinds of ASBESTOS.
