  • Bacterial biofilms are regarded to be the primary aetiological factor in the initiation of gingival inflammation and subsequent destruction of periodontal tissues (Offenbacher 1996) and three major specific pathogens have been repeatedly identified as etiologic agents, namely Aggregatibacter (Actinobacillus) actinomycetemcomitans (Aa), Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg) and Tannerella forsythia (Tf) (Socransky et al. 1998).

  • Chronic consumption For benefits of chronic alcohol consumption, see page 187. Central nervous system. The development of dependence on alcohol appears to involve alterations in central nervous system neurotransmission. The acute effect of alcohol is to block NMDA receptors for which the normal agonist is glutamate, the main excitatory transmitter in the brain. Chronic exposure increases the number of NMDA receptors and also 'L type' calcium channels, while the action of the (inhibitory) GABA neurotransmitter is reduced.

  • Investor base: participation by different investors in the government bond market has grown more diversified. Of the various actors in this market, banks tend to invest in relatively shorter term bonds to match their short-term liability. Pension funds and insurance companies prefer hedging long-term inflation risks by investing more in inflation linked bonds. Non-residents concentrate their direct exposure to fixed rate instruments, but with maturity less than 3 years.

  • This paper focuses on developing an empirical strategy for measuring the effect of pollution on health. Specifically, I look at the effect of air pollution on children's hospitalization for asthma. Childhood asthma is of particular interest for two reasons: 1) asthma is the leading chronic condition affecting children; and 2) current pollution standards are based on adult health responses to pollution and children face a greater risk from pollution exposure due to the sensitivity of their developing biological systems. This study builds on earlier work in five ways.

  • The term stress was introduced into the biomedical field by Hans Selye (1936) in reference to a General Adaptation Syndrome which would consist of all non-specific systemic reactions that occur during an intense and chronic exposure to a stressor (e.g., pressure at work and poor diet). This syndrome would be different from the specific adaptive reactions (such as muscle hypertrophy caused by exercise performed on a regular basis) and immune responses (Selye, 1936).

  • Estuaries are areas of high productivity, crucial in the life histories of many fish, invertebrates, and birds, for example, and the sustainability of estuarine biodiversity is vital to the ecological and economic health of coastal regions. On the other hand, estuarine ecosystems are exposed to toxic anthropogenic effluents transported by rivers from remote and nearby conurbations and industrial and agricultural concerns.

  • Over the past 25 years the discipline of ecotoxicology has undergone two major developments. Firstly, new assays have been developed, deploying organisms that bear added relevance to the specific environment under investigation. Several new procedures assess the effects on organisms after exposure to environmental samples rather than to spiked water or sediment samples. Also noteworthy is the considerable attention given to effects of chronic exposure to low levels of contaminants.

  • Sulfur trioxide irritates the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract. A concentration of 1 volume of SO3 in a million volumes of air (one part per million or 1 ppm) is enough to cause coughing and choking. Sulfur trioxide dissolves in water to form sulfuric acid, which is a strong acid capable of corroding or destroying many materials. Sulfur trioxide can absorb moisture from the atmosphere to form very fine droplets of sulfuric acid. Inhalation of these droplets can harm the respiratory system. Chronic exposure leads to a much greater likelihood of suffering from bronchitis.

  • The population exposure without PM10 fraction attributable to road traffic is shown in Figure 6. Compared to total PM10, the frequency distribution changes considerably. Most people would live in areas with PM10 values less than 20 µg/m3. In France and Switzerland, less than 3% of the population would live in areas with PM10 greater than 20 µg/m3. In Austria, this portion is higher due to an increased non-traffic caused regional PM10 background.

  • A study of physician office visits in London showed associations between air pollution and doctor visits for asthma and other lower respiratory disease. For children, levels of nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide were associated with increased numbers of medical consultations. However, in adults, the only consistent association was with levels of airborne particles. This suggests that children and adults might respond differently to pollution exposures. Prenatal Effects of Carbon Monoxide Carbon monoxide may also have prenatal effects.

  • In the fully watered camel thyroid activity is higher in summer than in winter, but activity is reduced in camels deprived of water. The decline in activity is important because the generation of metabolic heat is reduced and respiratory water losses are also reduced. Chronic exposure to heat results in depressed thyroid activity as well as reduced plasma, cortisol and growth hormone concentrations and turnover rates. All three sources normally create heat and act in cooperation, so the net result of habituation to heat is some reduction in metabolic rate (Wilson, 1998). ...

  • The main risks in acute poisoning are: hyperpyrexia, tachycardia, and a rise in the metabolic rate leading to death by cardiac arrest. In chronic exposure, the main riss are: skin, blood, neurological and respiratory disorders, porphyria, non-specific symptoms, and the possibility of cancer.

  • Limited data suggest that the risk of squamous cell carcinoma is similarly increased after first use as a teenager. Artificial tanning confers little if any protection against solar damage to the skin, nor does use of indoor tanning facilities grant protection against vitamin D deficiency. Data also suggest detrimental effects from use of indoor tanning facilities on the skin’s immune response and possibly on the eyes (ocular melanoma). Knowledge of levels of UV exposure during indoor tanning is very imprecise.
