Hull, Krystelle Godbout, Louis-Philippe BouletAbstractBreathlessness during sport can be caused by a variety of cardiorespiratory conditions, but when associated with stridor, usually arises from an upper airway etiology. The term exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO) is now used to describe the phenomonen of transient glottic closure occurring in association with physical activity.Exercise related laryngeal closure is most commonly encountered in athletic individuals and likely affe...

Publication date: Available online 14 February 2020Source: Materials LettersAuthor(s): Heng Li, Cheng-wei Wu, Sen Wang, Wei ZhangAbstractThe macroporous, high porosity and mechanically strong poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA) hydrogels were developed using agarose (AG) as the pore inducing agent. The AG not only incurs the formation of macropores by promoting the nucleation and growth of ice particles, but also strengthens the mechanical properties by increasing the crystallinity of PVA and the inter-molecular hydrogen bonds. The in vitro cell experiments imply that the obtained PVA hydrogels is cytocompatible and the chondrocyte...

Authors: Doyen V, Casset A, Divaret-Chauveau A, Khayath N, Peiffer G, Bonniaud P, Dalphin JC, De Blay F Abstract Allergy is a hypersensitivity reaction induced by immunological mechanisms. In asthma, allergy has a complex role and is usually IgE mediated. Allergy must be evaluated during the work up but evidence of IgE sensitivity does not mean that allergens play a role in the pathophysiology of the disease. The clinical relevance of the sensitivity has to be considered. This paper describes current available tools to screen for IgE sensitivity, allergen exposure and their role in asthma.

Ansar Ali, Bula Singh, Bidyut SahaAbstractOxidation of isoamyl alcohol was carried out under pseudo 1st order reaction condition in aqueous medium by chromic acid. In addition to single micelle, mixed anionic-nonionic micelle (SDS-TX 100) was found to be effective catalyst. Promoters in presence of micelle catalyst showed almost million fold rate acceleration. The product was confirmed by IR and NMR study. UV and NMR analysis were carried out to establish the formation of mixed mice...
