Non-covalent molecular imprinting of poly(allylamine hydrochloride) (PAA HCl) with glucose phosphate mono-sodium salt produced molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) hydrogels capable of quantitative, isomerically specific binding of glucose. By ionic association of a template molecule, glucose phosphate mono-sodium salt, to the polymer prior to covalent(More)
We delivered controlled radio frequency energy to the airways of anesthetized, ventilated dogs to examine the effect of this treatment on reducing airway narrowing caused by a known airway constrictor. The airways of 11 dogs were treated with a specially designed bronchial catheter in three of four lung regions. Treatments in each of the three treated lung(More)
BACKGROUND: Bronchial Thermoplasty, a procedure that applies thermal energy to the airway wall has been shown to impair the ability of airway to contract in response to methacholine chloride (Mch). The technique has been advocated as an alternative treatment for asthma that may permanently limit airway narrowing. In previous experimental studies in dogs and(More)
Recent studies have reported that the application of thermal energy delivered through a bronchoscope (bronchial thermoplasty) impairs the ability of airways to narrow in response to methacholine. How such altered smooth muscle affects the response of airways to lung inflation may have important clinical implications, particularly as it relates to the(More)
A recent study has reported that the application of thermal energy delivered through a bronchoscope (bronchial thermoplasty) impairs the ability of airway smooth muscle to shorten in response to methacholine (MCh)(Danek CJ, Lombard CM, Dungworth DL, Cox PG, Miller JD, Biggs MJ, Keast TM, Loomas BE, Wizeman WJ, Hogg JC, and Leff AR.
