How to stop an asthma attack without relievers

It is extremely difficult to imagine people diagnosed with asthma going anywhere without asthma inhalers. If the asthma condition is beyond of control, it is dangerous to leave for somewhere without his relieving inhaler for asthma because nobody can exactly … Continue reading

Brief look at Levaquin

Various bacterial infections frequently may become a huge problem for a human organism and patients themselves. One cannot cure an infection correctly without making an appointment to a doctor. It is typical situation nowadays when people simply mix up symptoms … Continue reading

Production of nitric oxide and prostacyclin in acetylsalicylic acid-induced asthma (part 5)

AIA patients showed more intense ADP-induced platelet aggregation and a higher rate of its first wave. The reaction time, the interval from the addition of the aggregation-inducing agent to the maximal change in optical density of the primary aggregation wave, … Continue reading

Production of nitric oxide and prostacyclin in acetylsalicylic acid-induced asthma (part 4)

In addition, the AIA patients showed a high level of nitrite and nitrate excretion in urine during the night, which indicated a higher production of nitric oxide at that time (Figure 1). However, the circadian rhythm of nitric oxide generation … Continue reading

Production of nitric oxide and prostacyclin in acetylsalicylic acid-induced asthma (part 3)

All subjects had not been eating fruits and vegetables for three days before the experiment. For aMT6s, nitrite and nitrate excretion measurements, urine was collected over 12 h periods, from 09:00 to 21:00 and from 21:00 to 09:00, in plastic … Continue reading

Production of nitric oxide and prostacyclin in acetylsalicylic acid-induced asthma (part 2)

Platelet-rich plasma was prepared by centrifugation of citrated blood at 200 g for 15 mins. To induce platelet aggregation, ADP was added at a concentration of 1.2×10-6 M. For the prostanoid assay, 10 mL of blood was placed in a … Continue reading

Production of nitric oxide and prostacyclin in acetylsalicylic acid-induced asthma (part 1)

Nitric oxide and prostacyclin play an important role in maintaining platelet-vessel homeostasis, especially in lung microcirculation, which, as shown in our studies, is disturbed in patients with acetylsalicylic acid- (ASA) induced asthma (AIA). Recently, researchers have shown great interest in … Continue reading
