Abstract

From a total population of 1,002 children with acute lower respiratory infection (ALRI), identification of virus was achieved in 304 cases. In this survey, 1,000 nasopharyngeal aspirate and 13 lung tissue samples were tested in four cell lines (HEp-2, MRC-5, MDCK, and LLC-MK2) and by in...read more

Allergy And Infectious Diseases

Allergies result from the hyperreactivity of the immune system to some environmental substance and can be life-threatening. Infectious diseases are caused by organisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. They can be transmitted different ways, such as person-to-person. Here is the latest research on allergy and infectious diseases.

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.

Antibodies: Complement Activation

The complement system can be activated by antigen-associated antibody. In the classical pathway of complement activation, C1q, C4b, and C3b are all able to bind to the Fc portion of IgG or IgM. Find the latest research on antibodies and complement activation here.
