Abstract

Airborne pollen grains and small plant particles of respirable size are the main causes of rhinitis and asthma in pollinosis patients. Consequently, it could be useful to quantify atmospheric variations in these biological aerosols and their allergenic activity as a basis for establishing correlations with the clinical symptoms in these allergic subjects. Our study was conducted in Naples from May to August 1992 and from May to August 1993 and concentrated on Parietaria judaica (Par j) the most important hay fever-provoking plant in southern Italy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the day-to-day variation in counts of Par j. pollen, the day-to-day variation in allergenic activity specific for this plant, and to relate these two variables to symptom scores in patients with respiratory allergy to Par j. The airborne pollen grains were collected by a Hirst-like volumetric trap and examined through an optical microscope, while the allergenic activity of particles trapped on glass fibre filters in a high volume air-sampler was determined by immunochemical assay. The two devices were placed on the flat roof of the 'A. Cardarelli' Hospital. The results of this preliminary study suggest that both methods could have useful clinical...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Blastomycosis

Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Microbicide

Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
