R2-TNO: The Role of Irritancy and Irritant-Induced Inflammation in the Elicitation of Respiratory Hypersensitivity Reactions
A range of low molecular weight chemicals can cause adverse reactions in the airways such as allergic asthma, including occupational asthma. Allergies involve a generally symptom-free induction phase where sensitisation is induced, and an elicitation (challenge) phase, where inhalation of […]
EMSG8: Are Connexins, the Gap Junctional Integral Proteins, Involved in Male Reproductive Disorders Associated With Possible Exposure to Endocrine Disrupting Agents?
The objective of the project is to verify whether impairment of expression and/or function of the gap junctional connexins (elements of the gap junction structure; this structure facilitates "communication" between cells) could be implicated in human male reproductive disorders. An […]
