“Salt concentrations can be important for many health-related conditions,” says Jian Yang, professor of biomedical engineering at Penn State.
“Our method uses fluorescent molecules based on citrate, a natural molecule that is essential for bone health.” Compared to other methods used for chloride detection, the new material is much more sensitive to chloride and is able to detect it over a far wider range of concentrations—and is also sensitive to bromide, another salt that can interfere with the results of traditional clinical laboratory tests.
Inhaled (nebuliser solution and inhalation powder) preparations, TOBI, Bramitob, Vantobra and TOBI podhaler are licensed for the management of chronic pulmonary infection caused by in non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis is off-label.
Overview This evidence summary includes 3 randomised controlled trials that investigated the efficacy of nebulised tobramycin, 300 mg twice daily compared with placebo for treating infective exacerbations caused by in people with non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis.
They may be getting promoted or slowing down a little to take care of their health.
“We are developing a platform material for sensing that is low cost, can be automated, requires no titration by trained staff or expensive instrumentation as in hospitals, and provides fast, almost instantaneous, results,” Liu says.The mission of The Cody Dieruf Benefit Foundation for Cystic Fibrosis is to raise awareness of cystic fibrosis.The foundation will provide financial assistance to help with medical copays, medical travel, insurance deductibles and insurance out of pocket expenses.Even trace amounts of bromide can throw off test results.The citrate-based sensor makes it possible to distinguish the difference between chloride and bromide.See summaries of product characteristics (SPCs), British national formulary (BNF) or the MHRA or NICE websites for up-to-date information.
