We sought to use this relationship to estimate the costs of illness associated with aerosolized
The trial is designed as a double-blind, randomized study to evaluate whether Discovery Labs' aerosolized
KL-4 surfactant is safe and well tolerated in patients with mild to moderate CF lung disease.
medications during mechanical ventilation is certainly not a new concept, although I believe its origin is not as simple as one might think.
In studies conducted by Alford and colleagues (18), volunteers were exposed to carefully titrated aerosolized
influenza virus suspensions by inhaling 10 L of aerosol through a face mask.
"No matter how we cut it, we saw a reduction in the relative risk of death by fourfold in the aerosolized
cyclosporine group," said Dr.
The highest priority of an investigation is to evaluate the risk for exposure to aerosolized
When water contaminated with the bacteria is aerosolized
and people inhale the droplets, the risk that they will contract the disease increases exponentially, especially among members of high-risk groups such as smokers, diabetics, immunocompromised individuals, individuals with other pulmonary ailments, alcoholics, and those with end-stage renal disease.
Daily doses of the sulfa drug trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX) help AIDS patients fend off recurrences of a life-threatening form of pneumonia more effectively than do monthly treatments with aerosolized
pentamidine, according to a pair of studies comparing the two widely used preventive medications.
SimInhale will establish a roadmap to realistic computer simulations that will provide quantitative data to designers of aerosolized
medicines and inhalation devices.
The primary goal of the initial study, phase 2a, is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a single exposure of aerosolized
KL4 surfactant drug product.
Firefighters working in the rubble of the World Trade Center were exposed to potentially hazardous aerosolized
dust consisting of pulverized cement, glass fibers, asbestos, lead, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, polychlorinated biphenyls, and polychlorinated furans and dioxins produced as combustion byproducts from the collapsed and burning buildings.
The device employs a preset flow rate to ensure abdominal pressure is maintained during the procedure while providing optimal evacuation of smoke and aerosolized
pathogens through the first stage of filtration.
In the last issue we discussed the use of aerosolized
opioids and indicated that we would follow up in the subsequent column with some practical details.
No other investigators have measured household levels of aerosolized
