Questions related to Respiratory System
Based on our antiviral theory, why a virus can infect its target cell is because the target cell’s gene expression pattern is suitable for the viral infection, thus any factors that can change gene expression patterns in viral target cells could be used to reduce susceptibility to all viral infections. Low-dose X-ray irradiation can change gene expression patterns in different cells , presuming that X-ray irradiated cells are resistant or immune to all viral infections. Besides, X-ray irradiation can cause epigenetic changes, which could be passed on few generations. Hopefully, one dose irradiation on upper respiratory tract area could protect people for few months, leading to the possibility that low-dose X-ray irradiation ('irradiation vaccine') could be cure-all vaccine for all viral pandemics.
I am working on the immune response in the respiratory tract 30 minutes after a stimulation, and I'm also analyzing the bone marrow. I observed a rise in the number of Lin-, MPP and CMP, but I'm wondering if 30 minutes of stimulation is enough to influence the BM . Does anyone know, how long it take for progenitors to "sense" the inflammation, to differenciate and to migrate ?
Thank you very much !
Erythromycin is used to prevent and treat infections in many different parts of the body, including respiratory tract infections, skin infections, diphtheria, intestinal amebiasis, acute pelvic inflammatory disease, Legionnaire's disease, pertussis, and syphilis.
I would like to ask your opinions on an interesting case:
46 yr old female patient had an infection of uppper respiratory system in the beginning of September. Shortly afterwards she developed angina pectoris like symptoms. EKG was without pathological signs. In 24h-EKG only a sinus tachycardia showed, when walking slowly (up to 140-160 beats /minute). Echocardiography was without pathological signs as was lab (CRP, troponin, myoglobin, hemoglobin,...). In a cardio-MRI in November a cardiac microvasculatory dysfunction (endothelialitis? small vessel disease?) was diagnosed.
In a blood test, troponin, creatine kinase, creatine kinase-MB, CRP, c-ANCA, p-ANCA, lupus anticoagulant, anti-cardiolipin antibodies... and so on all were negative.
Only antibodies against endothelium could be shown.
Does anybody here have experience with a case like that? At the moment, we think mainly about an autoinflammatory process (e.g. triggered by auto-antibodies). Is there any way to find evidence pro or con?
Theileriosis is a tick borne disease recorded in ruminants. Besides causing anemia it affects the respiratory tract thereby causing pulmonary oedema.
When human die due to corona then their respiratory system dont work so I thinks from their dead body corona cant be spread. Anyone can explain it that from dead body corona is spreading or not?
I'm looking for a solution for -7 C using in super cold storage tank. If i use water it will be change phase to solid.
The solution has the following properties:
- still liquid phase at -7 C may be to -10 C in Atmospheric pressure.
- non-corrosive to copper
- cheap price
- not toxic to the respiratory system

At our university, we are making a laboratory to assess the functional state of athletes. Colleagues recommended two brands: Cosmed and Cortex. Please tell me what devices do you use? What type of gas analyzers is preferable: mobile or stationary?
Dear scientific community!
Several studies have investigated the hazards posed to human health and the environment by carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) materials, owing to similar material properties as asbestos. Right now, hundreds of kilometers of CFRP elements (strips, bars, wraps, etc.) are being installed to strengthen existing buildings worldwide every year. I would be interested to know, if you could recommend studies on the potential hazards with respect to the construction industry? What is your opinion in terms of human health (especially the respiratory system), required safety measures, recyclability and cost, which are not considered in design and sales?
Thank you very much!
Croup is a viral infection affecting the upper respiratory tract. Its causative organisms includes Influenza and Parainfluenza viruses. This question aims to know the role of antiviral agents in the management of disease.
in the framework of my master's thesis, I would like to assess the efficacy of probiotic on upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) incidence and symptom ratings in athletes under free-living conditions . I think I should use The Wisconsin Upper Respiratory Symptom Survey (WURSS). I will choose WURSS-11 because may reduce the time and burden required for completing the survey. But different protocols have been used in different studies (https://www.fammed.wisc.edu/wurss/).
Hence my question.
Should participants complete the questionnaires every day? Or maybe on the day, when they consider a cold to start?
The study will last 8-10 weeks. I'm afraid of having problems filling out the questionnaires so often.
I will be grateful for your help.
Increasing the demand of lead recycling industries in so call E- vehicles or eco friendly initiatives. It was observed that the SOP and the work culture is rarely bothered about the exposure to the labour in such recycling units at melting section, lead oxide mill, red oxide area and ingots making sections. So I want to know about the study conducted on the accumulation of lead in the lungs of the front line workers and is chances to defuse lead from lungs ( respiratory system/track) to blood ??
Staphylococcus aureus is a gram - positive, round - shaped bacterium that is frequently found in the upper respiratory tract and on the skin. With this, 25% of the people and animals harbor Staph on their skin and in their nose. This can cause Staph food poisoning located in the gastrointestinal tract. This bacteria can be eliminated through preventive measures like cooking but its toxic remain.
Whooping cough is a bacterial respiratory infection. It is transmitted through the respiratory system during coughs. We talk about whooping cough before a cough that has been accentuated for more than 7 days with fifths, difficult breathing (called rooster crowing) and vomiting. Whooping cough can cause neurological and pulmonary complications.
Whooping cough can be prevented with vaccination.
In response to viral infection via respiratory system a mucus defense associated with the primary inflammatory response 1 to 3 days after infection, to be followed by immune reactivity some two weeks later.So, is the primary response the most serious problem in this CORO19 infection, producing mucous plugging or is the ground glass matter indicative o0f direct pathology>
I had two general questions:
- I was wondering if there is scientific theory behind the re-infection potential and rate on survivors of COVID-19. I have read a News Paper Report that Reinfection happened on some survivors in Korea. How much is that true? Any new information and knowledge in that regard?
- Is there any severe and lasting damage (like scar) that the infection by COVID-19 leaves on the lung or other parts of the respiratory system? Please share us new information on these two points or more. Thanks!
- Therefore, I would like to know if anyone has carried out tests since these waves are capable of interacting in the respiratory passages of exposed mammals.
- Also taking into account and without ruling out the digestive system, as a possibility of testing.
Or if someone can think of how to safely perform that test.
Is there any possibility that nanofibrious materials can be inhaled and end up in the respiratory system if the person who is conducting experiments on electrospinning of nanofibrious materials, without a face mask?
this investigation based on respiratory tract infection both upper and lower respiratory infection in pediatric patients
The presence of free radicals in photosynthetic and respiratory systems is inevitable, even in optimal condition for growth.
In these conditions, How much free radicals can be loss in yield?
Pertussis is infectious bacterial infection in the respiratory system, and is characterized by cough out of control, and this makes breathing difficult, followed by the sound of a loud and deep like cock, and this sound resulted from trying to catch a person's breath after coughing and it’s also called ((coughing a hundred days )) My question is as a parent how can we deal with a child during the hundred days ?? Can we reduce the symptoms of this disease?
Respiratory system evaluation and screening can easily be done by Pulmonary Function Tests. It is an important and useful adjunct for correlation and evaluation of, the presenting complaint of patients like cough and dyspnoea, the imaging studies and pre and post treatment respiratory function status, as well as to identify patients with no or insignificant signs and symptoms of respiratory impairment.
Keeping in mind, the huge physiological and clinical importance I decided to carry out this study. In present study the pulmonary function test of smokers were compare with non-smokers. So, it is expected that this knowledge smoking among the people of Northern Bihar (Koshi region) Bihar, where a large population is migrant workers, with poor hygiene and low socioeconomic status, this study was undertaken for a better understanding of the correlation between smoking and its effects on pulmonary functions.
Hello , I need someone has information about rapid immunochromatography kit used for rapid detection of MERSCoV antigen in collected samples from respiratory system.
I am focus on affect the climate change on Infection rate and the changes caused by climate and climate change?
I am working on human airways. My geometry is CT scan based from mouth to sixth generation. I want to run the CFD simulation for cyclic breathing (complete process of inhalation and exhalation). Could someone please help me?
E-cigarettes have become increasingly popular and many believe they are a healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes. But do the substances in e-cigarette vapor really just get exhaled with the vapor? The answer should lie in their particle size which determines deposition in the human respiratory system and organs. Any measurements of particle size distributions published in peer-reviewed papers would be of great interest.
how can nanoparticles in a liquid media affect the lungs and respiration by inhalation? can they be harmful that way or such injury is caused only by the nanoparticles in the air? please advise ...I need to check the safety factors
