Characterization of Aerosol Generation and Transport in the Human Lung

Summary

This study is aiming at evaluating whether the number and size of exhaled particles changes during the increase and decrease of bronchial constriction in subjects with mild intermittent asthma.

Description

Particle emission demonstrates high reproducibility within subjects while between-subject-variability is large. Methacholine challenge in subjects with mild intermittent asthma will provide data from repetitive measurements in the same subject with variable airflow obstruction.

Study Design

Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Basic Science

Exercise Challenge in a Cold Chamber

The purpose of this study is to compare the exercise-challenge in a cold chamber at 2-4°C to the gold standard the metacholine challenge in subjects showing symptoms of exercise-induced b...

C-Reactive Protein as a Predictor for Airway Hyper-Responsiveness

Background: Increased serum high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) has been associated with airway inflammation in asthma and may serve as a surrogate marker for the presence of airw...

Bronchial hyperresponsiveness consists in excessive response to bronchial stimuli.Bronchial challenge test is used to confirm/exclude asthma (metacholine or histamine).Protection are used ...

Screening Scottish Swimmers for Asthma and Rhinitis

The Scottish National and District swimming teams will be screened for asthma and rhinitis using both mannitol challenge and sport-based exercise challenge.

Methacholine Challenge: Comparison of Doubling and Quadrupling Methacholine Dose Regimes Using the Tidal Volume Method

The purpose of this study is to determine the difference (if any) in the result of the methacholine challenge (a test used by physicians in diagnosing asthma) when concentrations of methac...

Evaluation of clinically and physiologically atypical asthma: If it doesn't wheeze it may still be asthma.

Children with asthma-like symptoms may not clinically wheeze. The objectives of this study were to evaluate if children, without physician-documented wheeze, wheeze during bronchial-challenge-testing ...

Accuracy of spirometry for detection of asthma: a cross-sectional study.

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease with airway hyperresponsiveness. Spirometry is the most commonly used test among asthmatic patients. Another functional test used for diagnosing asthma is the ...

The airway hyperresponsiveness to methacholine may be predicted by impulse oscillometry and plethysmography in children with well-controlled asthma.

Airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) is a hallmark of asthma. Methacholine challenge test which is mostly used to confirm AHR is not routinely available. The aim of this study was to investigate the predi...

Menopausal asthma-much ado about nothing? An observational study.

Menopausal asthma is considered a distinct asthma phenotype. Our aim was to identify potential specific features of asthma in postmenopausal women in a cohort of Polish females.

Exploring the intersection of executive function and medication adherence in school-age children with asthma.

Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood. For children with persistent asthma, asthma control is largely related to controller medication adherence. With increasing calls for chi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Asthma attacks caused, triggered, or exacerbated by OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE.

The organization, management, and assumption of risks of a business or enterprise, usually implying an element of change or challenge and a new opportunity.

Undertaking a task involving a challenge for achievement or a desirable goal in which there is a lack of certainty or a fear of failure. It may also include the exhibiting of certain behaviors whose outcomes may present a risk to the individual or to those associated with him or her.

Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).

A frequent complication of drug therapy for microbial infection. It may result from opportunistic colonization following immunosuppression by the primary pathogen and can be influenced by the time interval between infections, microbial physiology, or host resistance. Experimental challenge and in vitro models are sometimes used in virulence and infectivity studies.
