  • levels of eosinophils
  • For example, when someone is affected by hay fever, there are increased levels of eosinophils in the nasal passages, notes CincinnatiChildrens.org. (ehow.co.uk)
  • Because low levels of eosinophils means that the body is not likely to be engaged in fighting off illnesses, a blood test may help rule out several conditions, including certain drug reactions, immunologic disorders, blood disorders, endocrine problems, parasitic infestations and infectious diseases, according to Merck. (ehow.co.uk)
  • Unless alcohol abuse or Cushing's disease is suspected, low levels of eosinophils are not usually of concern unless other white cell counts are also abnormally low. (healthline.com)
  • Farooqui and colleagues recruited 31 adults who had been diagnosed with asthma for a study to determine if the blood levels of eosinophils correlated with sputum levels. (medpagetoday.com)
  • asthma
  • When a patient experiences an asthma attack, the eosinophils are not properly released and accumulate in the lungs. (ehow.co.uk)
  • Steroid medication is generally successful in eliminating this process, so when a patient's asthma is being managed properly via rescue inhaler and other medications, the eosinophil count is low, notes Global Net. (ehow.co.uk)
  • Managing a patient's asthma can also eliminate long-term damage to the lungs from an overabundance of eosinophil toxins. (ehow.co.uk)
  • Explain to interested patients that this study evaluated peripheral blood eosinophil counts for potential use in guiding asthma therapy. (medpagetoday.com)
  • However, by analyzing blood for eosinophils we can have the information to use with our patients rapidly," Nabeel Farooqui, MD, of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, told attendees at the annual meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.

  • Eosinophil trafficking in allergy and asthma. (nih.gov)
  • peripheral blood
  • The eosinophils induced from hPSCs in our system showed similar morphology and surface marker expression with those in peripheral blood through May-Grϋnwald-Giemsa staining, transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analysis, flow cytometric analysis (FACS), RT-PCR analysis, and immunofluorescent staining. (springer.com)
  • Peripheral blood eosinophils were cultured with heat-killed SA, and EDN release, superoxide generation, and adhesion to fibronectin-coated plates were measured. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Rabbits were immunized thrice with purified eosinophils and the antisera were absorbed with peripheral blood cells from guinea pigs made eosinopenic with methyprednisolone to remove antibodies reactive with serum proteins and erythrocytes. (jimmunol.org)
  • Intraperitoneal injection of potent AES into guinea pigs resulted in complete absence of eosinophils from the peripheral blood and from the peritoneal cavity with only transient or no reduction in circulating neutrophils. (jimmunol.org)
  • Platelets
  • Eosinophil-platelet interactions occur through certain cell surface receptors, which promotes activation of the bound platelets and surrounding endothelial cells. (news-medical.net)
  • Neutrophils
  • The resulting sera reacted strongly with eosinophils in cytotoxicity tests and had weak or no reactivity with neutrophils. (jimmunol.org)
  • However, absorption of AES with purified neutrophils removed anti-eosinophil activity. (jimmunol.org)
  • The ability of neutrophils to absorb AES activity in spite of weak reactivity in cytotoxicity tests may reflect a quantitative difference in antigenic determinants between eosinophils and neutrophils. (jimmunol.org)
  • tissue
  • When high concentrations of eosinophil is discovered in tissue, such as the nasal passages, it can give heath care workers a clue about what could be wrong. (ehow.co.uk)
  • Eosinophils persist in the circulation for 8-12 hours, and can survive in tissue for an additional 8-12 days in the absence of stimulation. (bionity.com)
  • Hi Again Please could you tell me what tissue in mouse is a good positive control for eosinophil staining. (histosearch.com)
  • diseases
  • The improper expression and activity of eosinophils contribute to other dermatological diseases, such as chronic spontaneous urticaria, and gleich syndrome. (news-medical.net)
  • role
  • In this short review, we briefly summarize the role of the eosinophils in the general context of immunoregulation and its relation to oral squamous cell carcinoma. (hindawi.com)
  • Herein, we discuss the role of eosinophils in tumor immunity and propose mechanisms accounting for their functional differences in tumorigenesis. (eurekaselect.com)
