Combined resistive breathing (CRB) is the hallmark of obstructive airway disease pathophysiology. We have previously shown that severe inspiratory resistive breathing (IRB) induces acute lung injury in healthy rats. The role of expiratory resistance is unknown. The possibility of a load-dependent type of resistive breathing-induced lung injury also remains(More)
Aim: To evaluate the histological changes and immune response of conjuctiva in patients (pts) with lo S.S. Materials and Methods: We studied conjunctiial biopsies from 15 pts with I0 S.S. and 2 normal controls using 1) paraflfn section screening for the quality of conjunctival epithelium (CE), the number of goblet cells (GC) and the degree of inflammation,(More)
