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 ...

(Universidad Nacional de Cuyo. Facultad de Odontología, 2016)
Climatic changes, water systems, and adaptation challenges in Shawi communities in the Peruvian Amazon
Climate change impacts on water systems have consequences for Indigenous communities. We documented climatic changes on water systems observed by Indigenous Shawi and resultant impacts on health and livelihoods, and explored ...
Air particulate matter exacerbates lung response on Sjögren's Syndrome animals
(Elsevier Gmbh, 2014-11)
Epidemiological studies have associated air particulate matter (PM) inhalation with a decline in lung function and increased morbo-mortality due to cardiorespiratory diseases, particularly in susceptible populations. ...
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 ...
Immune response to Streptococcus pneumoniae in asthma patients: comparison between stable situation and exacerbation
In Argentina, more than 3 million people suffer from asthma, with numbers rising. When asthma patients acquire viral infections which, in turn, trigger the asthmatic response, they may develop subsequent bacterial infections, ...
Lack of galectin-1 exacerbates chronic hepatitis, liver fibrosis, and carcinogenesis in murine hepatocellular carcinoma model
(Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, 2019-03)
Chronic liver inflammation (CLI) is a risk factor for development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Galectin-1 (Gal1) is involved in the regulation of inflammation, angiogenesis, and tumorigenesis, exhibiting multiple ...
MeCP2 deficiency exacerbates the neuroinflammatory setting and autoreactive response during an autoimmune challenge
(Nature Research, 2021-05)
Rett syndrome is a severe and progressive neurological disorder linked to mutations in the MeCP2 gene. It has been suggested that immune alterations may play an active role in the generation and/or maintenance of RTT ...
