  • serum
  • The expression of these markers was also increased on lavage cells from patients with radiographic evidence of widespread disease (chest radiographic stage II and III), but there was no relation with disease duration, pulmonary function, or serum angiotensin converting enzyme activity.

  • counts
  • In their recent article, Roberts and colleagues reported cell counts and differentials in specimens obtained by bronchoalveolar lavage before and after radiotherapy in 17 women with breast cancer. (annals.org)
  • Immunoglobulin concentrations and lymphocyte counts were determined in bronchoalveolar fluid obtained from nine symptomless, healthy, non-smoking granite workers (mean age 45.6, range 22-56 years) and nine normal, non-smoking, non industrial controls (mean age 22.8, range 21-32 years).

  • 0.01
  • Eight of nine normal volunteers (89%) had no detectable IgM (less than 30 ng/ml) in the lavage fluid whereas eight of nine (89%) granite workers had detectable IgM (chi 2 = 8, p less than 0.01). (eurekamag.com)
  • occupational
  • Alveolitis was not a representative feature of Turkish subjects with an occupational history of underground mining, and BAL fluid cellular profile did not seem to be different in miners with or without pneumoconiosis. (bmj.com)
  • cellular
  • Retired underground miners were investigated to document alveolitis, and to observe the difference in the cellular profiles of bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid with or without pneumoconiosis. (bmj.com)
  • We conducted a clinical trial to document alveolitis in miners, if any, and to observe the differences in the cellular profiles of BAL fluid of miners exposed to inorganic dust but who had not developed pneumoconiosis and those with different categories of pneumoconiosis. (bmj.com)
  • found
  • The normal albumin concentration suggests that differences in permeability do not account for all of the increased immunoglobulin concentrations found in granite workers' lavage fluid and that some immunoglobulin is locally synthesised. (eurekamag.com)
  • C. pneumoniae has also been found in the cerebrospinal fluid of patients diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Results
  • MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Quantitative cultures for aerobic bacteria were performed directly from the fluid. (ac.be)
