Early Detection of Cystic Fibrosis Acute Pulmonary Exacerbations by Exhaled Breath Condensate Metabolomics
(American Chemical Society, 2019-10)
The most common cause of death in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients is progressive lung function decline, which is punctuated by acute pulmonary exacerbations (APEs). A major challenge is to discover biomarkers for detecting ...
Diagnosis of pulmonary embolism in patients with acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a cross-sectional study
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2020-12)
Introduction: Pulmonary embolism (PE) remains a frequent complication in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It is unclear that the extent to which the traditional risk stratifying scores for PE are ...

(B M J Publishing Group, 2013-01)
Background and objective: The Atlanta classification of acute pancreatitis enabled standardised reporting of research and aided communication between clinicians. Deficiencies identified and improved understanding of the ...
Polluted Air Exposure Compromises Corneal Immunity and Exacerbates Inflammation in Acute Herpes Simplex Keratitis
(Frontiers Media, 2021-02)
Air pollution is a serious environmental issue worldwide in developing countries?megacities, affecting the population?s health, including the ocular surface, bypredisposing or exacerbating other ocular diseases. Herpes ...
Restraint stress exacerbates cell degeneration induced by acute binge ethanol in the adolescent, but not in the adult or middle-aged, brain
(Elsevier Science, 2019-02)
Restraint stress (RS) induces neurotoxicity in the hippocampus, yet most of the studies have employed protracted RS (i.e., ≈ 21 days). Binge ethanol can induce brain toxicity, an effect affected by age. It could be postulated ...
An exacerbated metabolism and mitochondrial reactive oxygen species contribute to mitochondrial alterations and apoptosis in CD4 T cells during the acute phase of Trypanosoma cruzi infection
(Elsevier Science Inc., 2021-02-01)
Chagas disease caused by Trypanosoma cruzi parasite is an endemic infection in America. It is well known that T. cruzi causes a strong immunosuppression during the acute phase of infection. However, it is not clear whether ...
Prevention and Treatment of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome by COVID-19: Role of Vitamin D on Immunomodulation and Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System Regulation
(Biomedical Research Network, 2021-10)
The leading cause of complications or death from COVID-19 is due to the development of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). This syndrome is characterized by exacerbated inflammation, mainly at the pulmonary level, ...
Differential effects of the ethanol acute or chronic exposure on the early hypoxic ventilatory response (hvr) in rat neonates
(Medicina (Buenos Aires), 2021)
Early ethanol exposure disrupts neonatal respiratory patterns and it has been suggested as risk factor associated with the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Ambient hypoxia acts as an environmental stressor eliciting breathing ...
Importance of Viruses in Exacerbations of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Could Change its Behavior During the SARS-COV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic?Importancia de los virus en las exacerbaciones de Enfermedad Pulmonar Obstructiva Crónica (EPOC). ¿Podría cambiar su comportamiento durante la pandemia de SARS-COV-2 (COVID-19)?Importância dos vírus nas exacerbações da Doença Pulmonar Obstrutiva Crônica (DPOC).
