      Community-acquired pneumonia is a common and serious disease, with high rates of morbidity and mortality. Management and treatment of community-acquired pneumonia are described in three main documents: the American Thoracic Society guidelines, the European Respiratory Society guidelines, and the British Thoracic Society guidelines, updated by the NICE in Cited by: 1. OBJECTIVES: To review the evidence regarding the effectiveness of orally ingested Echinacea extracts in reducing the incidence, severity, or duration of acute upper respiratory infections (URIs).SEARCH STRATEGIES: Information from a wide range of sources was used as background material. More than articles, books, and book chapters were reviewed for content and further references. INTRODUCTION. Mycoplasma pneumoniae is one of the few species of Mycoplasma that frequently cause infection in humans.M. pneumoniae predominantly causes respiratory tract infection but has a wide variety of clinical manifestations.. The clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment of M. pneumoniae infection in children will be reviewed here.M. pneumoniae infection in adults, Mycoplasma.

Upper Respiratory Infections. Infections of the respiratory tract are grouped according to their symptomatology and anatomic involvement. Acute upper respiratory infections (URI) include the common cold, pharyngitis, epiglottitis, and laryngotracheitis.

These infections are usually benign, transitory and self-limited, altho ugh epiglottitis and laryngotracheitis can be serious diseases in Cited by: However, early data suggest that lower respiratory infection rates may reduce the development of the above conditions which are closely related to viral infections.

Immunomodulators that both prime the immune system to fight infection and reduce inflammation are likely to play a major role in secondary and even potentially primary prevention of atopic diseases.

Importantly, infection triggers a complex and well-orchestrated sequence of responses involving many interacting components of innate and adaptive immunity, directed by several signaling pathways that present numerable known, and probably many more unknown, opportunities to interfere in the succession of events that can skew the resulting immune : Monica C.

Gestal, Hannah M. Johnson, Eric T. Harvill. The disease burden from respiratory infection is greater than that of any other cause of disease in childhood, being associated with significant morbidity and representing one of the most common reasons for unscheduled medical visits.

Pages About this book. Introduction. On May, a group of scientists met in Viareggio, Italy to present ideas, and exchange relevant data on current approaches on immunomodulators. it is obvious that such a term as "immunomodulation. Immunomodulation is focused on manipulation of immune system to control the infections and other adverse health effects with precise regulation to avoid any complications while suppressive or potentiating efforts are made to benefit the animal and human health.

Respiratory Disease and Infection. Respiratory disease is a medical term that encompasses pathological conditions affecting the organs and tissues that make gas exchange possible in higher organisms, and includes conditions of the upper respiratory tract, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, alveoli, pleura and pleural cavity, and the nerves and muscles of breathing.

Summary: The modulation of the immune response is a common practice of many highly pathogenic viruses.

The emergence of the highly pathogenic coronavirus severe acute respiratory virus (SARS-CoV) serves as a robust model system to elucidate the virus-host interactions that mediate severe end-stage lung disease in humans and by: Dysfunction of immunity is indisputably conducive to the propensity for infections, particularly respiratory tract infections, as the airways are the first line of defense against invading pathogens.

Pathogens can rapidly evolve and adapt to avoid detection by the immune system. The case in point is the influenza virus. virus infections is critical for both the prevention and treat-ment of virus-associated disease in the respiratory tract. A limited survey of respiratory viral infections reveals that respiratory viruses with distinct virion and genome structures, unique entry receptors, and modes of replication, cause similar clinical syndromes and sequelae Cited by: Respiratory tract infections (RTIs) are the most common form of infections in every age category.
