Risk factors for bronchiolitis obliterans
in allogeneic hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation for leukemia.
The authors theorized that the level of exhaled NO could be a marker for bronchiolitis obliterans
. Akipinar-Elci studied: (i) 107 workers in the mixing, microwave packaging, and QC areas, which the study classified as a "high-exposure group;" and (ii) 28 workers in the office, packaging, and warehouse area, which the study classified as a "low-exposure group." (33) At the time of the study the diacetyl air concentrations were reportedly: 2.24 ppm in mixing room; 0.426 ppm in packaging; 0.401 in QC; and 0.15 in the office low exposure areas.

SLE may cause a variety of pulmonary disorders such as pleuritis, acute lupus pneumonitis, chronic interstitial lung disease with fibrosis, alveolar hemorrhage, respiratory muscle and diaphragmatic dysfunction, atelectasis, bronchiolitis obliterans
, pulmonary vascular disease with pulmonary hypertension, and pulmonary embolism.1,2 But cavitary pulmonary lesion is rarely seen in SLE.
She was diagnosed with bronchiolitis obliterans
following severe recurrent lower respiratory tract infections and was managed on 200 [micro]g budesonide daily.
Lung biopsies have shown varying pathologic features: nonspecific interstitial pneumonia, pulmonary fibrosis, bronchiolitis obliterans
organizing pneumonia, and hypersensitivity pneumonitis.
due to Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
In some embodiments the altered versions of CXCR3 are used, inter alia, for the direct identification of candidate compounds such as receptor agonists, inverse agonists, partial agonist or antagonist for use in, for example and not limitation, graft rejection; inflammatory skin disease; inflammatory bowel disease; allergic inflammation, allergic pulmonary inflammation, inflammatory demyelinating neuropathy, CNS inflammation; rheumatoid arthritis, bronchiolitis obliterans
syndrome, periodontal disease and neurodegenerative disease.
The remaining patients were misdiagnosed elsewhere as having asthma, pneumonia, emphysema, tuberculosis, bronchiolitis obliterans
, or interstitial lung disease.
Diffuse alveolar damage and bronchiolitis obliterans
organizing pneumonia have also been described.
