Abstract

Respiratory infections can cause wheezing illnesses in children of all ages and also can influence the causation and disease activity of asthma. For years it has been recognized that respiratory syncytial virus infections often produce the first episode of wheezing in children who go on...read more

Immune System in Humans: Tissues & Ages

Mapping the human immune system spatially, within and between tissues, will provide the basis for studying mechanisms of tissue residency and the effects of aging. Find new research on analysis of the immune system by multiple approaches here.

Viral Respiratory Diseases

Viral respiratory infections can affect the upper or lower respiratory tract. These lung and airway infections can be caused by numerous different viruses and can be dangerous for those who have a weakened immune system. Discover the latest research on viral respiratory diseases here.

Asthma

This feed focuses in Asthma in which your airways narrow and swell. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.

Childhood Asthma

Childhood asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the respiratory airways. There are many factors that influence the susceptibility for the development of childhood asthma such as infections, including respiratory syncytial virus and gene-environment interactions. Here is the latest research on childhood asthma.

Schoenlein-Henoch Purpura

Schoenlein-Henoch purpura is a systemic non-thrombocytopenic purpura caused by hypersensitivity vasculitis and deposition of IgA-containing immune complexes within the blood vessels throughout the body, including those in the kidney. Discover the latest research on Schoenlein-Henoch purpura here.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.

NK Cells: Viral Immunity

Natural Killer (NK) cells are critical for the containment of viral replication, particularly during early infection. Some viruses such as HIV and influenza have developed mechanisms to evade NK detection and infect the host. Here is the latest research on NK cells and viral immunity.

Human Immune Variation: Genetics, Gender & Time

Establishing the normal range of phenotypic variation within and between individuals requires consideration of contributions from genetics and the environment. Find the latest research on variations in the human immune system here.

American Thoracic Society: Clinical Problems

This feed has been developed in conjunction with the American Thoracic Society for the benefit of its Clinical Problems Assembly. It highlights new and impactful papers on clinical therapeutics, diagnoses, and practices pertaining to respiratory disease.

Sexual Transmitted Disease

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) includes a series of syndromes caused by pathogens that can be acquired by sexual intercourse or sexual activity. Discover the latest research on Sexually Transmitted Diseases here.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis. It can be asymptomatic or manifest into other serious complications such as Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. Discover the latest research on Chlamydia here.

Immune Tolerance

Immune tolerance happens when the immune system is not responsive to a substance or organism and does not elicit an immune response. This is a normal physiological response for some antigens, especially when detecting self from non-self. This has been a potential area of therapy for some disorders. Here is the latest research on immune tolerance.

Viral Infection And Asthma

Viral respiratory tract infections can have profound effects on important aspects of asthma. Discover the latest research on viral infections and asthma here.

Respiratory syncytial virus infection

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a respiratory illness in both children and adults. Discover the latest research on RSV here.

Acute viral rhinopharyngitis

Acute viral rhinopharyngitis, also known as "common cold", is an acute, self-limiting viral infection of the upper respiratory tract involving the nose, sinuses, pharynx and larynx. Discover the latest research on acute viral rhinopharyngitis here.
