    Abstract : It is well established that air pollution has detrimental effects on both human health as well as the environment. Exposure to ozone and particulate matter pollution, is associated with an increase in cardiopulmonary mortality and morbidity. Asthmatics, elderly and children have been indicated as especially sensitive groups. READ MORE

  3. 3. Lung mechanics and airway inflammation in murine models of asthma

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sofia Jonasson; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; allergic asthma; airway inflammation; murine models; lung mechanics; forced oscillation technique; airway reactivity; deep inhalations; oxidative stress; nitric oxide; glucocorticoids.; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology Clinical physiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi Klinisk fysiologi; klinisk fysiologi; Clinical Physiology;

    Abstract : Allergic asthma is an inflammatory disease of the airways and is characterized by eosinophilic inflammation and increased airway reactivity. In the studies presented in this thesis, lung mechanics and measurements of airway reactivity were assessed in anaesthetized tracheostomized mice by using an animal ventilator (flexiVent®).

  4. 4. Upper Airway Mucosal Inflammation Proteomic Studies after Exposure to Irritants and Microbial Agents

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Louise Fornander; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : People are, in their daily lives, exposed to a number of airborne foreign compounds that do not normally affect the body. However, depending on the nature of these compounds, dose and duration of exposure, various airway symptoms may arise. READ MORE

  5. 5. Interleukin-17 in non-allergic airway inflammation

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Martti Laan; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; IL-17; airway inflammation; bronchial epithelial cells; neutrophils; T-lymphocytes; IL-8; IL-6; MAP kinases.;

    Abstract : Chronic bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchial asthma and cystic fibrosis are common clinical disorders all characterized by airway neutrophilia. By releasing proteolytic enzymes and free oxygen radicals, neutrophils can contribute to the main features of these diseases such as airway obstruction, hypersecretion and remodelling. READ MORE
