  • One thing almost all hotels -whether they a motor lodge or a 5 star hotel - seem to have in common is that each room has housed hundreds or thousands of guests - and with that many guests, your likelihood of exposure to a host of germs, bacteria, allergens, and other contaminants increases. (vollarajournal.com)
  • Unless a hotel has impervious covers on their mattresses and pillows, they're contributing to allergies and exacerbating them," said Philip Tierno, Director of clinical microbiology and immunology at New York University, and author of The Secret Life of Germs . (vollarajournal.com)

  • trillions
  • But given what science has learnt in just the past decade, this would be a grievously short-sighted and anthropocentric view: our guts harbour tens of trillions of microbial lives entwined with our own, and with the ancestral human narrative. (themonthly.com.au)
  • symbiotic
  • It does so because it has evolved a symbiotic relationship in which the bacteria get food and a suitable environment for growth and the host animal acquires protection against some forms of disease. (albertaclassic.com)
  • adaptive
  • The cutaneous homeostasis maintenance is dependent on the cross-talk between several immune sentinels present in the different compartments of the skin and the interplay between innate and adaptive immune responses. (hindawi.com)
  • The natural breadth of the na├»ve TCR repertoire is an important strength of the adaptive immune response and can only be maintained by having pools of individual clones at very low frequency. (frontiersin.org)
  • constitute
  • Over the years, the skin was proven to have a crucial immunological role, not only being a passive protective barrier but a network of effector cells and molecular mediators that constitute a highly sophisticated compound known as the "skin immune system" (SIS). (hindawi.com)
  • Far from being a simple mechanical barrier, the skin constitutes a network of effector cells and molecular mediators that constitute a highly sophisticated "skin immune system" (SIS) as described by Bos and Kapsenberg in 1986 [ 1 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • pathogen
  • Salmonella has been a model pathogen for examining CD4 T cell activation and effector functions for many years due to the strength of the Th1 cell response observed during Salmonella infections, the relative ease of use of Salmonella , the availability of Salmonella -specific T cell reagents, and the well-characterized nature of the model system, the pathogen, and the immune response elicited.

  • mice
  • And because the aging process in humans (or even mice) takes so long, science's understanding of aging was based on observation rather than experiment. (blogspot.com)
  • system
  • It causes a potentially deadly disease known as campylobacteriosis, which can be dangerous to people with a compromised immune system. (trymrsteamer.com)
  • It comes in a refreshing wild berry flavor, and contains vitamins, minerals, enzymes and natural extracts to enhance mental focus, support the immune system and maintain overall well-being. (vollarajournal.com)
  • contains
  • Tierno's research indicates that your carpet probably contains about 200,000 bacteria per square inch, making it 4,000 times dirtier than your toilet seat. (trymrsteamer.com)

  • animals
  • comparison of germ free and conventional animals with a complete gut microflora shows that the former are more susceptible to disease than are their normal counterparts. (albertaclassic.com)
  • Earth
  • Bacteria populated Earth 2 billion years before the first signs of eukaryotic life, and they occupy almost every terrestrial and aquatic niche on our planet. (sciencemag.org)

  • years
  • Just as Louis Pasteur and Robert Koch harnessed germ theory 150 years ago to begin identifying, preventing and treating acute disease-causing bugs, today's researchers investigate the potential of manipulating our microscopic fellow-travellers to tackle chronic diseases and some cancers. (themonthly.com.au)
  • complex
  • Studies of skin immune sentinels provided essential insights of a complex and dynamic immunity, which was achieved through interaction between the external and internal cutaneous compartments. (hindawi.com)

  • In comparison with the low-fat control diet, HFD feeding significantly reduced the relative abundance of Gram-positive bacteria in the gut, which was slightly reversed by either fish oil or perilla oil. (hindawi.com)
