OBJECTIVES Resin-based dental materials are not inert in the oral environment, and may release components, initially due to incomplete polymerization, and later due to degradation. Since there are… Expand
Morphology, performance and fighting capacity in male lizards, Gallotia galloti
Summary 1. Morphological characteristics (snout‐vent length, badge area, mass, limb and head measures) and whole-animal performance capacities (sprint speed, acceleration capacity, stamina and bite… Expand
Risk factors for morbidity and death in non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis: a retrospective cross-sectional analysis of CT diagnosed bronchiectatic patients
IntroductionThere is a relative lack of information about the death rate and morbidity of non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis and most studies are limited due to referral bias. We wanted to assess… Expand
Long-Term Exposure to Particulate Matter Air Pollution Is a Risk Factor for Stroke: Meta-Analytical Evidence
Background and Purpose— Epidemiological studies suggest an association between stroke incidence and stroke mortality and long-term exposure to particulate matter (PM) air pollution. However, the… Expand
A model of ex vivo perfusion of porcine donor lungs injured by gastric aspiration: a step towards pretransplant reconditioning.

BACKGROUND Evidence of aspiration remains a major reason for declining donor lungs contributing to current organ shortage. The aim of the present ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) study was to compare… Expand
Pulmonary and hemostatic toxicity of multi-walled carbon nanotubes and zinc oxide nanoparticles after pulmonary exposure in Bmal1 knockout mice
BackgroundPulmonary exposure to nanoparticles (NPs) may affect, in addition to pulmonary toxicity, the cardiovascular system such as procoagulant effects, vascular dysfunction and progression of… Expand
Survival Determinants in Lung Transplant Patients With Chronic Allograft Dysfunction
Background. Chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD) remains the leading cause of mortality after lung transplantation. Methods. In this retrospective single-center study, we aimed to identify… Expand
