This aerosolization is strikingly occurring in CF outpatients without any cavitary lesions or other serious complications.
Various therapeutic agents, such as proteins, peptides, antibiotics, anticancer drugs, and steroids, can be easily loaded on engineering carrier particles for improving in vitro and in vivo aerosolization pattern [16].

These IPs contain a variety of solvents and active ingredients, and aerosolization consistently produced inhalable droplets.
Nondiabetic mice sensitized and challenged with OVA showed an increased Penh to 3 and 6 [micro]g/mL of methacholine aerosolization as compared to sensitized mice challenged with saline.

Windtree's lead product candidate is AEROSURF, a novel, investigational drug/device product that combines the company's proprietary KL4 surfactant and aerosolization technologies.
Living in close proximity to bats enables people to benefit from the ecosystem services that bats provide and may, simultaneously, put them at risk of disease spillover, which may be referred to as "ecosystems disservice." Hunting and processing of bats for consumption potentially expose humans to zoonotic pathogens from bats through bites, scratches, and body fluids, as well as aerosolization of saliva, faeces, and/or urine [10, 11].
In addition, since contaminated vascular catheters may be the point of entry in some cases, probiotic treatments containing Saccharomyces should be carefully handled to avoid aerosolization and cross contamination [14].
Just as automated decapper stations require attention to biohazard controls, so too do manual decapping stations, with precautions such as opening of tubes with gauze pads and prevention of aerosolization to nearby staff.
The risks of port-site metastasis following laparoscopic surgery are also influenced by factors such as the use of carbon dioxide for insufflation, leakage of gas around the trocars leading to aerosolization of tumor cells at the port-sites, local immune system effects, surgical technique, potential for direct contamination of the trocar site with viable tumor cells, and presence of ascites.[sup][1],[15],[16]
