The aim of the present study was to investigate the differences in lower airway inflammatory immune responses, including cellular responses and responses in terms of inflammatory mediators in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) and the airway, to rhinovirus (RV) infection on asthma exacerbation by comparing a control and a murine asthma model, with or without RV infection.

Synthesis of regulated on activation, normal T-cells expressed and secreted (RANTES) in the airway has previously been shown to be elevated after respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection. However, since few studies have examined whether RSV-infected asthma patients express a higher level of RANTES than do normal individuals, we used a murine model of asthma to address this question.

Purpose : Surveillance for detecting and managing latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) is a key component of tuberculosis control. The classic surveillance tool, the tuberculin skin test (TST), may have some limitations when used in the Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG)-vaccinated population. The object was to perform a blood test QuantiFERON®-TB Gold In Tube (QFT-G IT) based on the detection of interferon-γ (IFN-γ)...

To determine the proper age of the measles vaccination, we must know the time when the passively transferred measles antibody from mother disappeared. Because it can be a major factor for vaccine failure to take the measles vaccine to the children who still have the passive immunity. We measured the degree of immunity of 50 children with the age between...

A l,500gm undetermined sex neonate was born after 30 weeks gestation to a 26 years old primipara mother. On physical examination, he was noticed massive abnormality of the lower half of the body with absence of the anus and external genitalia and fusion of the lower extremities throughout their length. We confirmed this case by physical examination and x-ray study. A brief...
