Hybrid & El Tor variant biotypes of Vibrio cholerae O1 in Thailand. (1/6)

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: El Tor Vibrio cholerae O1 carrying ctxB C trait, so-called El Tor variant that causes more severe symptoms than the prototype El Tor strain, first detected in Bangladesh was later shown to have emerged in India in 1992. Subsequently, similar V. cholerae strains were isolated in other countries in Asia and Africa. Thus, it was of interest to investigate the characteristics of V. cholerae O1 strains isolated chronologically (from 1986 to 2009) in Thailand. METHODS: A total of 330 V. cholerae O1 Thailand strains from hospitalized patients with cholera isolated during 1986 to 2009 were subjected to conventional biotyping i.e., susceptibility to polymyxin B, chicken erythrocyte agglutination (CCA) and Voges-Proskauer (VP) test. The presence of ctxA, ctxB, zot, ace, toxR, tcpA C , tcpA E, hlyA C and hlyA E were examined by PCR. Mismatch amplification mutation assay (MAMA) - and conventional- PCRs were used for differentiating ctxB and rstR alleles. RESULTS: All 330 strains carried the El Tor virulence gene signature. Among these, 266 strains were typical El Tor (resistant to 50 units of polymyxin B and positive for CCA and VP test) while 64 had mixed classical and El Tor phenotypes (hybrid biotype). Combined MAMA-PCR and the conventional biotyping methods revealed that 36 strains of 1986-1992 were either typical El Tor, hybrid, El Tor variant or unclassified biotype. The hybrid strains were present during 1986-2004. El Tor variant strains were found in 1992, the same year when the typical El Tor strains disappeared. All 294 strains of 1993-2009 carried ctxBC ; 237 were El Tor variant and 57 were hybrid. INTERPRETATION & CONCLUSIONS: In Thailand, hybrid V. cholerae O1 (mixed biotypes), was found since 1986. Circulating strains, however, are predominantly El Tor variant (El Tor biotype with ctxB C).  (+info)

Respiratory viruses and atypical bacteria triggering severe asthma exacerbation in children. (2/6)

1. Respiratory viruses and atypical bacteria were detected in 51.0% of Hong Kong children with asthma exacerbations, which was significantly higher than the detection rate of 27.3% in children with chronic stable asthma. 2. Co-infections of two or more respiratory pathogens were more commonly found in children with asthma exacerbations (10.7%) than in patients with stable asthma (2.6%). 3. Human rhinovirus infection was a significant risk factor for asthma exacerbations. 4. There was no significant association between the severity of asthma exacerbations and respiratory viral or atypical bacterial infections. 5. Routine use of macrolide antibiotics in the treatment of childhood asthma exacerbations should be discouraged.  (+info)

Abnormal forms of Trichomonas vaginalis. (3/6)

Abnormal forms of Trichomonas vaginalis have been demonstrated by both conventional and scanning electron microscopy after inoculation of media with clinical material from cases of trichomonal vaginitis. Twenty-six cases of vaginitis have been studied; 10 of them showed the abnormal forms of trichomonads after growth in a modification of the medium described by Bushby and Copp (1955), while 16 showed only normal forms.  (+info)

Listeria monocytogenes endocarditis. (4/6)

A fatal case of endocarditis due to Listeria monocytogenes is reported. Case reports of endocarditis due to this organism are rare but indicate a higher mortality than with many other causes of bacterial endocarditis. The size of the problem may be underestimated because the organism has a "diphtheroid' appearance and may be incorrectly dismissed as a contaminant.  (+info)

Aberrant form of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in sputum and cerebrospinal fluid causing infection in a compromised patient. (5/6)

A patient with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma developed meningitis due to an aberrant form of Pseudomonas aeruginosa observed on Gram stain. The organism was grown on primary isolation media without needing hypertonic media. The significance of aberrant forms in body fluids is discussed.  (+info)

Acute conjunctivitis caused by an atypical chlamydial strain: Chlamydia IOL 207. (6/6)

A case of acute conjunctivitis in man caused by Chlamydia IOL 207 is described. Chlamydiae were isolated from the eye, and rising titres of type-specific antibodies to C. IOL 207, in serum and tears demonstrated an aetiological role for this agent. C. IOL 207 is an atypical chlamydial strain which serological studies suggest is widespread in some communities.  (+info)

Recent next-generation sequencing studies have generated a comprehensive overview of the genomic landscape of human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated cancers. This review summarizes these findings to provide insight into the tumor biology of these cancers and potential therapeutic opportunities for HPV-driven malignancies. In addition to the tumorigenic properties of the HPV oncoproteins, integration of HPV DNA into the host genome is suggested to be a driver of the neoplastic process. Integration may confer a growth and survival advantage via enhanced expression of viral oncoproteins, alteration of critical cellular genes, and changes in global promoter methylation and transcription. Alteration of cellular genes may lead to loss of function of tumor suppressor genes, enhanced oncogene expression, loss of function of DNA repair genes, or other vital cellular functions. Recurrent integrations in RAD51B, NR4A2, and TP63, leading to aberrant forms of these proteins, are observed in both HPV-positive ...
Among the fossil shells of the oolite hitherto referred to Nerita, there occurs a small group presenting characters of sufficient importance to justify their being separated, not only as a distinct section of the genus, but as forming a different generic type, probably belonging to the same family, for which I propose the name Neritoma.. The peculiar character to which I allude is, in the outer lip (which in all the typical Neritæ is entire) having two more or less deep sinuses, probably corresponding to a particular organization in the animal inhabitant; the form of the aperture and the columellar lip are also distinct from those of Nerita, and do not approximate it to any other described genus.. The above-mentioned characters of this genus,-certainly allied to Nerita, although aberrant from it,-are interesting under two points of view: first, as connecting the true Nerites with Amphibola, Schum. (Ampullacera, Quoy), also an aberrant form of Ampullaria and Natica; and secondly, as adding ...
Scholars have long argued that byakhees somewhat humanoid shape suggests a relationship to a less aberrant form of life, and that these creatures may once have even been humans. Indeed, byakhees were created from the original human denizens of the ancient city of Alar. When that city declared war upon its neighbor Carcosa, Alar vanished without a trace on the next rising of its planets red sun. In truth, the city and its citizens did not disappear-they were absorbed and transformed by Carcosa.. Although a byakhee longs to consume the blood of the living, it doesnt actually ever suffer the effects of thirst or starvation and can live its entire life without ever tasting a drop of blood. Nonetheless, these creatures still feel something akin to hunger-albeit a sensation driven by a mental impulse other than a biological imperative. Some scholars theorize that this hunger is nothing more than a remnant from the races past, a sort of ancestral memory of starvation, perhaps, that drives them to ...

Methods Multiplex qPCR was used to detect and quantify CP, LP and MP in 238 samples prospectively collected from 87 patients in the London COPD Cohort: mean (±SD) age 71.4 (±8.1); predicted FEV1 43.4% (±17.5%); male gender 47.9%; current smoker 49.2%. Baseline (n=104), exacerbation (n=95), and follow-up (n=39) samples were tested: Baseline was defined as at least 6-weeks without exacerbation, and exacerbation was defined as 2 consecutive days of two symptoms (Anthonisen criteria), at least one of which is a major symptom (dyspnoea; sputum purulence; sputum volume). Follow-up involved taking samples 2 or 5 weeks post-exacerbation onset. Using a qPCR developed by our clinical diagnostic service, the CP, MP and LP gene targets were RNA-polymerase β-chain; P1 adhesin protein; and MIP respectively. Routine microbiological analysis was also performed on these samples. ...

RUNX transcription factors belong to a highly conserved class of transcriptional regulators which play various roles in the development of the majority of metazoans. In this review we focus on the founding member of the family, RUNX1, and its role in the transcriptional control of blood cell development in mammals. We summarize data showing that RUNX1 functions both as activator and repressor within a chromatin environment, a feature that requires its interaction with multiple other transcription factors and co-factors. Furthermore, we outline how RUNX1 works together with other factors to reshape the epigenetic landscape and the three-dimensional structure of gene loci within the nucleus. Finally, we review how aberrant forms of RUNX1 deregulate blood cell development and cause hematopoietic malignancies. ...
The bacterial form of pneumonia occurs when the responsible organism enters the lower respiratory tract, primarily through inhalation or choking, but an organism can also enter the body through the bloodstream. The body responds severely with bronchitis, swelling, lack of blood supply, tissue death, abscess formation, and even lung collapse. If the animal has a poor immune system, then even bacteria that are normally present in the mouth, throat and lungs can become infectious. Due to all of this, there may be very low levels of oxygen available in the blood.. Fungal infections usually occur when the spores are inhaled, entering the lung (and sometimes the bloodstream). This triggers the rabbits immune system to send white blood cells to fight the invading organism. These cells are then intercepted and engulfed by the organisms, releasing a chemical (cytokine) which impairs oxygen distribution in the lungs.. Viral infections occur in much the same way, except it is the virus which enters the ...
One of the first researchers was the German professor of microbiology Guenther Enderlein who described in 1925 the different stages of a microbe that is normally present as tiny colloidal protein units. In various degenerative diseases, especially cancer and autoimmune diseases, these protein units grow into cocci and higher bacterial forms and finally into fungi. Before him, in the nineteenth century, the French professor Antoine Bechamp had already described similar microbes and called them microzymas. Independently, mostly without knowing of each others work, several other researchers, including Royal Raymond Rife, Wilhelm Reich, Virginia Livingston-Wheeler, Alan Cantwell and Gaston Naessens, have described the same phenomenon (2, 3 ...
It is an inflammation of the hair follicles most often caused by a fungal or yeast infection. It can remain dormant for long periods of time and then flare up with humid weather. There are bacterial forms as well and one must be tested to know which it is. (However, trying to find a doctor to test for it has been extremely exasperating - they think its acne too….). We can tell that is folliculitis by the way it extracts much differently than an acne lesion. Also, if its a condition that comes and goes then that is a clue that is folliculitis and not acne.. It can be caused from the extended use of antibiotics, the use of steroids, oily skin, humidity, occlusive clothing, heavy moisturizers and the use of hot tubs/spas.. ...

Lycastis meraukensis n. sp. Dr. J. W. R. Koch, member of the New-Guinea expedition of the Kon. Nederl. Aardrijkskundig Genootschap in 1904, found at Merauke in decayed wood of the Sago-palm 9 specimens of this worm, viz. 2 large ones, one of which is incomplete and 7 smaller ones. Unfortunately it is not mentioned whether the tree was met with in fresh or brackish water of the river or in salt water at the sea-shore. The dorsal side of some of the worms is dark flesh-coloured, whereas a red brown ring occurs around the anal segment. The largest specimen measures about 150 mm. in length and has a breadth of 7 mm. in the median body-region (without the parapodia); the number of its segments amounts to 170. One of the smaller specimens has a length of 60 mm. and consists of about 150 segments. The head is more broad than long, rounded trapezoidal, provided with a longitudinal median groove. The eyes are situated laterally, in front of the posterior margin of the head; the external of each pair is ...

The MECP2 (meck-pea-two) gene contains instructions for the synthesis of a protein called methyl cytosine binding protein 2 (MeCP2), which acts as one of the many biochemical switches that tell other genes when to turn off and stop producing their own unique proteins. When the MECP2 gene does not function properly, as in those having Rett syndrome, insufficient amounts or structurally abnormal forms of the protein are formed. The absence or malfunction of the protein likely causes other genes to be abnormally expressed. ...

Vibrio cholerae is the etiological agent of the severe watery diarrhoeal disease known as cholera, a major public health concern in most developing countries.. More than 200 serogroups have been described on the basis of different somatic O antigens [1], but only serogroups O1 and O139 have the ability to cause harsh epidemics. Serogroup O1 is further divided into two main biotypes, Classical and the 7th pandemic El Tor. Beside their phenotypic characteristics, differences in specific genetic markers, such as toxin structure, confer distinct features to these biotypes.. Pathogenic V. cholerae strains carry the genes encoding the cholera toxin (CT) on the CTXΦ prophage. Different CTXΦ arrangements have been described within the O1 serogroup [2]. These arrangements depend on the genotype of the CT gene ctxB and on the organization and chromosomal location of several gene clusters of phage origin, namely the core, RS2, and RS1 [2]. Although the Classical biotype is considered extinct, new El Tor ...
The protective immunity conferred by a set of recombinant vaccinia viruses containing the entire coding sequence of dengue virus type 4 nonstructural glycoprotein NS1 plus various flanking sequences was evaluated by using a mouse encephalitis model. Mice immunized with recombinant vNS1-NS2a, which expresses authentic NS1, were solidly protected against intracerebral dengue virus challenge. However, mice immunized with recombinants vNS1-15%NS2a and vRSVG/NS1-15%NS2a, which express aberrant forms of NS1, were only partially protected (63 to 67% survival rate). Serologic analysis showed that mice immunized with vNS1-NS2a developed high titers of antibodies to NS1 as measured by radioimmunoprecipitation, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and complement-mediated cytolytic assays. In addition, a pool of sera from these animals was protective in a passive transfer experiment. Lower titers of NS1-specific antibodies were detected in sera of animals immunized with vNS1-15%NS2a or vRSVG/NS1-15%NS2a by ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Current strategies for the treatment of Alzheimers disease and other tauopathies. AU - Dickey, Chad A.. AU - Petrucelli, Leonard. PY - 2006/10. Y1 - 2006/10. N2 - The pathological hallmarks of Alzheimers disease (AD) include abnormal intra- and extraneuronal tau and amyloid accumulation, respectively, accompanied by gliosis, oxidative stress and neuron loss. The discovery of mutations within the tau gene itself that cause clinical dementia (i.e., fronto-temporal dementia with Parkinsonism linked to chromosome 17 [FrDP17]) demonstrated that disruption of normal tau function independent of amyloidogenesis was sufficient to cause neuronal loss and clinical dementia. These studies demonstrate the need for therapeutics that either decrease the total pool of tau or selectively reduce aberrant forms of tau (i.e., hyperphosphorylated, misfolded etc.). To this point, therapeutic development for tauopathies, including AD, have primarily focused on either the phosphorylation of tau, as it ...
Conjunctivitis, or pink eye, is redness and inflammation of the membranes (conjunctiva) covering the whites of the eyes and the membranes on the inner part of the eyelids. These membranes react to a wide range of bacteria, viruses, allergy-provoking agents, irritants, and toxic agents, as well as to underlying diseases within the body. Viral and bacterial forms of conjunctivitis are common in childhood, but they occur in adults as well. Pink eye can occur in people of any age. Overall, however, there are many causes of pink eye.. ...
Examination of the rumen epithelium of sheep by scanning electron microscopy revealed bacteria associated with the epithelial surface. Comparison of epithelial surfaces from 10 sheep revealed areas that were consistently densely covered with bacteria and other areas where the cover was consistently light. The bacterial populations were frequently of mixed morphological types, but areas populated with a single type were also observed. This finding, together with the discovery of bacterial forms not previously described in rumen contents, suggests that a specific flora may exist on the rumen epithelial surface. The functional significance of such a population is discussed. ...
Transport of the nutrients across the cell membrane is regulated by membrane transport proteins which selectively and efficiently transports materials across the membrane. In the present work I focus on the family of membrane transporters the so called sugar porters in both their mammalian and bacterial forms. In the first work I describe the entire thermodynamic cycle of the GLUT1, a glucose transporter from the sugar porter family by employing non-equilibrium MD simulation and determining the free energy landscape associated with the so called IF-OF transition. Employing the information from the free energy calculations and equilibrium MD simulations from the members of the sugar porter family I present a unified mechanism of transport for the uniporter class of transporters. A second class of transporters namely symporters that couple the electrochemical gradient of a co transported ion to perform the uphill transport of the substrate was also studied. Using the H+-coupled Xylose transporter ...
4,000 times a year. Thats how often Johns Hopkins researchers found never events happen in U.S. hospitals.. Whats a never event? Its a situation so grave that it should never happen.

In universals whisper callies worked opposite joel edgerton, while much of garys paraphernalia had to be kept hidden, a noninvasive pulse oximeter is the simplest way to measure the oxygenation of the blood. If cyanosis comes on gradually, it was with this kind of scene that gary was able to drive a wedge between my mother and me, blue lips may indicate a type of cyanosis caused by lower levels of oxygen in the red blood cells. Its not like youre actually making 80. He gave me my first typewriter and influenced my decisions to become both a writer and psychologist, pulmonary rehabilitationmay be recommended, blue lips may also represent high levels of an abnormal form of hemoglobin in the bloodstream similar to bluish discoloration of the skin. We went out to dinner while the kids stayed home with alex, gary was among the judges who awarded me first prize.. ...
MoaC catalyzes an early step in molybdenum cofactor biosynthesis in E. coli. The Arabidopsis homolog Cnx3 complements MoaC deficiency in E. coli (MUID:95197640). Eukarotic members of this family branch within the bacterial branch, with the archaeal members as an apparent outgroup. This protein is absent in a number of the pathogens with smaller genomes, including Mycoplasmas, Chlamydias, and spirochetes, but is found in most other complete genomes to date. The homolog form Synechocystis sp. is fused to a MobA-homologous region and is an outlier to all other bacterial forms by both neighbor-joining and UPGMA analyses. Members of this family are well-conserved. The seed for this model excludes both archaeal sequences and the most divergent bacterial sequences, but still finds all candidate MoaC sequences easily between trusted and noise cutoffs. We suggest that sequences branching outside the set that contains all seed members be regarded only as putative functional equivalents of MoaC unless and ...

In experiments with laboratory mice, the scientists found abnormal forms of apolipoprotein A-I (Apo A-I), a protein involved in fighting inflammation, in the livers of infected male mice but not infected females. They then identified abnormal forms of these Apo A-I proteins in blood of men infected with HBV, but not in women. In addition to explaining the gender differences, the proteins may provide important markers for tracking the progression of hepatitis B, the scientists suggest ...
Thalassemia is a blood disorder passed down through families (inherited) in which the body makes an abnormal form of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. The disorder results in large numbers of red blood cells being destroyed, which leads to anemia.

Deviated fingers is a term that should be used if one or more fingers of the hand are deviated from their normal position, either to the radial or ulnar side. A deviation of a finger can be caused by an abnormal form of one or more of the phalanges of the affected finger, or by a deviation or displacement of one or more phalanges. [HPO:curators]
The consequences of Helicobacter pylori attachment to human gastric cells were examined by transmission electron microscopy and immunofluorescence microscopy. H. pylori attachment resulted in (i) effacement of microvilli at the site of attachment, (ii) cytoskeletal rearrangement directly beneath the bacterium, and (iii) cup/pedestal formation at the site of attachment. Double-immunofluorescence studies revealed that the cytoskeletal components actin, alpha-actinin, and talin are involved in the process. Immunoblot analysis showed that binding of H. pylori to AGS cells induced tyrosine phosphorylation of two host cell proteins of 145 and 105 kDa. These results indicate that attachment of H. pylori to gastric epithelial cells resembles that of enteropathogenic Escherichia coli. Coccoid H. pylori, which are thought to be terminally differentiated bacterial forms, are capable of binding and inducing cellular changes of the same sort as spiral H. pylori, including tyrosine phosphorylation of host ...
Adenoiditis is the inflammation of the adenoid tissue, usually caused by an infection. Adenoiditis is treated using medication (antibiotics and/or steroids) or surgical intervention. Adenoiditis may produce cold-like symptoms. However, adenoiditis symptoms often persist for ten or more days, and often include pus-like discharge from nose. The infection cause is usually viral. However, if the adenoiditis is caused by a bacterial infection, antibiotics may be prescribed for treatment. A steroidal nasal spray may also be prescribed in order to reduce nasal congestion. Severe or recurring adenoiditis may require surgical removal of the adenoids (adenotonsillectomy). Acute adenoiditis is characterized by fever, runny nose, nasal airway obstruction resulting in predominantly oral breathing, snoring and sleep apnea, Rhinorrhea with serous secretion in viral forms and mucous-purulent secretion in bacterial forms. In cases due to viral infection symptoms usually recede spontaneously after 48 hours, ...
Four of the 13 persons who died of a mysterious illness in Sinoe County on April 23 have tested positive for Neisseria meningitidis serogroup C, a bacterial form of meningitis, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).. The CDC is based in Atlanta, Georgia in the United States.. Dr. Francis Kateh, deputy health minister and chief medical officer, has confirmed the report from the CDC.. Additional testing is ongoing to determine if the other deaths and 30 other illnesses in Sinoe County, Grand Bassa County and the capital Monrovia following the wake and funeral of a religious leader in Sinoe County are also due to this type of infection.. The CDC said meningitis can spread by respiratory excretions and saliva. Drs. Kateh and Alex Gasasira, the World Health Organizations representative in Liberia, said on Saturday that tea served at a wake and funeral of a religious leader is suspected in an accidental poisoning incident.. Those who attended the wake and funeral ...

AdenoPlus - a rapid, in-office test that can help detect Adenoviral conjunctivitis using a small tear sample - was created to aid in the diagnosis of pink eye. Adenoviral conjunctivitis is highly contagious and can result in prolonged morbidities even after the primary infection has resolved. Due to the overlap in signs and symptoms with other causes of acute conjunctivitis, healthcare providers often treat all conjunctivitis cases with topical antibiotics, which are ineffective against the viral form of the infection. As a result, this course of treatment can lead many patients to return to school, work, or daycare while still contagious. The AdenoPlus test can be performed by a nurse or technician and provides a result in only ten minutes, making the correct diagnosis available at the time of the office visit rather than relying only on overlapping signs and symptoms or waiting for results from a laboratory. The speed and accuracy of the test results help clinicians make an accurate diagnosis ...

Thalassemia is an inherited blood disorder in which the body makes an abnormal form of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the protein molecule in red blood cells that carries oxygen. The disorder results in excessive destruction of red blood cells, which leads to anemia. Anemia is a condition in which your body doesnt have enough normal, healthy red blood cells. Thalassemia is inherited, meaning that at least one of your parents must be a carrier of the disease. Its caused by either a genetic mutation or a deletion of certain key gene fragments. ...

Imagine getting an alert from your gym that a member has died of meningitis, an infection that can be passed via close contact. Youd probably be worried, to say the least.. This is what happened after 48-year-old Sevin Philips, a frequent visitor to a SoulCycle studio in Larkspur, California, died of bacterial meningitis on January 7. Out of an abundance of caution, health officials have since contacted more than 200 of his fellow riders who may have been exposed; but they are being told not to panic, according to NBC Bay Area news.. So what is meningitis, exactly-and how contagious is it really?. Meningitis is an inflammation of the membranes covering the spinal cord and brain. There are many possible causes, including viruses, fungi, parasites, drugs, and cancer. But the type that frequently appears in the news is a bacterial form called meningococcal meningitis, caused by the bacterium Neisseria meningitidis.. This can be horrifically serious, says Aileen Marty, MD, professor of infectious ...
The role of atypical bacteria and the effect of antibiotic treatments in acute bronchitis are still not clear. This study was conducted at 22 hospitals (17 primary care clinics and 5 university hospitals) in Korea. Outpatients (aged > or = 18 yr) who had an acute illness with a new cough and sputum (< or = 30 days) were enrolled in 2013. Multiplex real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was used to detect five atypical bacteria. A total of 435 patients were diagnosed as having acute bronchitis (vs. probable pneumonia, n = 75), and 1.8% (n = 8) were positive for atypical pathogens (Bordetella pertussis, n = 3; B. parapertussis, n = 0; Mycoplasma pneumoniae, n = 1; Chlamydophila pneumoniae, n = 3; Legionella pneumophila, n = 1). Among clinical symptoms and signs, only post-tussive vomiting was more frequent in patients with atypical pathogens than those without (P = 0.024). In all, 72.2% of the enrolled patients received antibiotic treatment at their first visits, and beta-lactams (29.4%) and ...

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, a Pennsylvania man and his wife have filed a lawsuit against an amusement park alleging that a water ride at the park caused the man to contract a painful, eye-eating parasite.. The incident occurred while the couple was on the Raging Rapids white-water rafting ride at Kennywood Park, located outside of Pittsburgh, during the summer. Towards the end of the ride, Robert Trostle says he was splashed with water that entered his left eye. In the days that followed, Trostle experienced inflammation, photosensitivity, itchiness, and pain in his eye.. Later that week, Trostle was diagnosed with acute conjunctivitis; however, his symptoms did not improve and continued to grow in severity. Following another doctors visit, the man was diagnosed with microsporidia keratitis. This infection eats away at the cornea, or the outer dome of the eye, and requires painful surgery to remove.. Trostle underwent surgery to remove the parasite from his eye, but complete ...
RESOLVEs objective is to identify and characterize validated molecular targets capable of shifting primary organ repair towards fibroproliferative wound healing.. Work package 2 (WP2) of RESOLVE includes the clinical study protocols within the RESOLVE system evaluating different forms of pulmonary repair in humans ranging from normal repair over mainly inflammatory to predominantly fibroproliferative repair.. Hypothesis. Fibrosis of the lung is an aberrant and intensified form of wound healing. It is the result of an unresolved disturbance of both initiation and control of repair which is partly age-related. As a result of the relentlessly activated wound healing reaction, mechanisms of inflammation largely representing the condition of chronic inflammation within the peripheral bronchial tree will aggravate this abnormal form of repair.. A systematic comparison of the molecular pathology of fibrotic repair representing. ...
