The toxicity of constituents of cedar and pine woods to pulmonary epithelium.
TLDR
Results suggest that plicatic acid, a unique constituent of cedar wood, and abietic acid, the major constituent in pine resin, can produce lytic damage to alveolar, tracheal, and bronchial epithelial cells. Expand
Mechanism of occupational asthma due to western red cedar (Thuja plicata).
TLDR
Sera from patients with red cedar asthma failed to passively sensitize human lung fragments of human basophils, indicating that immunologic mechanisms other than Type I hypersensitivity reaction are likely to be involved. Expand
Follow-up study of 232 patients with occupational asthma caused by western red cedar (Thuja plicata).
TLDR
The findings indicate that the patients in the asymptomatic group were diagnosed at an earlier stage of the disease and race, smoking status, immediate skin reactivity, and presence of plicatic acid-specific IgE antibodies did not influence the outcome. Expand
Animal Physiology
The graduate program in Animal Physiology is an interdisciplinary curriculum leading to a Master of Science in Agricultural Life Sciences with a concentration in Animal Physiology and/or Doctor ofExpand
Preference for bedding material in Syrian hamsters
TLDR
None of the four bedding materials tested in this study can be judged to be inappropriate in the short term if nesting material is added to the cage and if the litter is changed regularly. Expand
Modulation of airway inflammation by passive transfer of allergen-specific Th1 and Th2 cells in a mouse model of asthma.
TLDR
It is shown that in the murine model of OVA-induced airway inflammation, both Th1 and Th2 cells are recruited to the airways and Ag-specific Th1 cells are not protective in this model of asthma, but rather may potentiate the inflammatory response. Expand
THE MOUSE IgE TEST: INTERLABORATORY EVALUATION AND COMPARISON OF BALB/c AND C57BL/6 STRAIN MICE
TLDR
The present investigations were designed to evaluate further the utility of the mouse IgE test, using trimellitic anhydride, a known cause of respiratory sensitization and occupational asthma, and 2,4-dinitrochlorobenzene, a potent contact allergen that is considered not to cause sensitization of the respiratory tract. Expand
Bronchial inflammation in occupational asthma due to western red cedar.
TLDR
Both cedar asthma and atopic asthma are associated with increased numbers of T-cells and activated eosinophils in the bronchial mucosa. Expand
Involvement of immunologic mechanisms in a guinea pig model of western red cedar asthma.
TLDR
To characterize the mechanisms of PA-induced asthmatic reaction, guinea pigs were sensitized to PA through biweekly injection ofPA-ovalbumin conjugate with aluminum hydroxide as an adjuvant for a period of 6 months, suggesting that IgG1 antibodies mediate the tracheal reaction to PA. Expand
Airborne dust, ammonia, microorganisms, and antigens in pig confinement houses and the respiratory health of exposed farm workers.
TLDR
This study investigated the environmental conditions on pig farms and the respiratory health of pig farmers and their immunological response to airborne contaminants and found that work-related respiratory symptoms, typically chest tightness/wheeze and nasal and eye irritation, were reported by 23 of the 29 workers.
