Chronic cough due to occupational factors
Within the large variety of subtypes of chronic cough, either defined by their clinical or pathogenetic causes, occupational chronic cough may be regarded as one of the most preventable forms of theExpand
Neuronal Plasticity in Persistent Perennial Allergic Rhinitis
The present data indicate a differential regulation of neuropeptide-containing nerve fibers with increased numbers of VIPergic fibers suggesting a modulatory role of the upper airway innervation in perennial allergic rhinitis. Expand
Toxic Rhinitis-Induced Changes of Human Nasal Mucosa Innervation
Changes in the neuropeptide content of mucosal parasympathetic, sympathetic and sensory nerves of patients with toxic rhinitis caused by chronic cigarette smoke exposure indicate a differential participation of subclasses of mucosa nerves in the pathophysiology of toxicrhinitis. Expand
Hepatotoxic effects of polidocanol in a model of autologously perfused porcine livers
Clinicians should be aware of this problem and the use of polidocanol for intrahepatic sclerosing should be restricted to specialized centers, as the present observations indicate a risk of hepatotoxic effects of poldocanol. Expand
Hemoperfused isolated porcine slaughterhouse kidneys as a valid model for pharmacological studies.
The present study demonstrates the valid use of hemoperfused slaughterhouse kidneys as a pharmacological model of renal function within the limits of the use of slaughterhouse organs, and indicates that future studies using this alternative approach could reduce animal experiments. Expand
