B cells contribute to the antitumor activity of CpG-oligodeoxynucleotide in a mouse model of metastatic lung carcinoma.
In conclusion, our data demonstrate the protective anti-tumour activity of CpG-activated B cells and shed light on CpG as anti-tumour adjuvant for lung cancer therapy....
Anti-tissue antibodies are related to lung function in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
We determined lung function, the serum titers of ANA and AT by immunofluorescence and the serum levels of C - reactive protein (CRP) by high sensitivity nephelometry in 328 patients with clinically stable COPD and in 67 healthy controls recruited in the PAC-COPD study. Multiple linear and logistic r...
Generator diesel exhaust: a major hazard to health and the environment in Nigeria.
Another "negative" trial of surfactant. Time to bury this idea?
Rapidly progressive diaphragmatic weakness and injury during mechanical ventilation in humans.
Diaphragmatic weakness, injury, and atrophy occur rapidly in critically ill patients during MV, and are significantly correlated with the duration of ventilator support....
Lung function in patients with primary ciliary dyskinesia: a cross-sectional and 3-decade longitudinal study.
Our study strongly suggests that PCD is a disease of serious threat to lung function already at preschool age, and with a high degree of variation in courses of lung function after diagnosis that was not linked to either age or level of lung function at diagnosis. Early diagnosis did not protect aga...
The metalloprotease-disintegrin ADAM8 is essential for the development of experimental asthma.
The results show that ADAM8 plays a pro-inflammatory role in airway inflammation. The milder disease outcome in the absence of ADAM8 suggests that this protein might be an interesting new target in treatment of this, and potentially other, inflammatory diseases in which recruitment of inflammatory c...
Can some patients with multidrug-resistant tuberculosis be cured with shorter duration of chemotherapy?

Risks of exposure to occupational asthmogens in atopic and nonatopic asthma: a case-control study in Taiwan.
We found a significant association between atopic asthma and exposure to high-molecular-weight (high-MW) asthmogens (adjusted odds ratio, AOR=4.0, 95% CI=1.8-8.9). Nonatopic asthma was significantly associated with exposure to low-MW asthmogens (AOR=2.6, 95% CI=1.6-4.3), including industrial cleanin...
