Allergies result from the hyperreactivity of the immune system to some environmental substance and can be life-threatening. Infectious diseases are caused by organisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. They can be transmitted different ways, such as person-to-person. Here is the latest research on allergy and infectious diseases.

Allergies & Environmental Factors

Environmental factors are strongly associated with the prevalence of allergies and are an increasing health concern worldwide. Discover the latest research on Allergies and Environmental Factors here.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.


Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that is rapid in onset and may cause death.


This feed focuses in Asthma in which your airways narrow and swell. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.

Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory genetically determined disease of the skin marked by increased ability to form reagin (IgE), with increased susceptibility to allergic rhinitis and asthma, and hereditary disposition to a lowered threshold for pruritus. Discover the latest research on atopic dermatitis here.

Chemokines & Chemokine Receptors

Chemokines are a subset of cytokines which induce chemotaxis in cells expressing chemokine receptors. Chemokines can be broadly categorized into two functional subgroups, homeostatic (basal expression in lymphoid tissues for surveillance purposes) or inflammatory (released during injury to recruit immune effector cells). Chemokine receptors are G-protein coupled receptors which, upon chemokine binding, induce calcium influx into the cell. Find the latest research on chemokines and chemokine receptors here.

Childhood Asthma

Childhood asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the respiratory airways. There are many factors that influence the susceptibility for the development of childhood asthma such as infections, including respiratory syncytial virus and gene-environment interactions. Here is the latest research on childhood asthma.

Cytokine Signaling & Transcription

Cytokines are proteins that are released by a subset of immune cells and play a role in intercellular communication, cell proliferation, differentiation, and survival. Discover the latest research on the influence of cytokine signaling on transcription here.

Delayed Hypersensitivity

Delayed hypersensitivity reactions are inflammatory reactions initiated by mononuclear leukocytes. Delayed hypersensitivity is a major mechanism of defense against various intracellular pathogens, including mycobacteria, fungi, and certain parasites, and it occurs in transplant rejection and tumor immunity. Discover the latest research on delayed hypersensitivity here.

Drug Hypersensitivity

Drug hypersensitivity is an immune-mediated reaction to a drug. Symptoms range from mild to severe and include rash, anaphylaxis, and serum sickness. Discover the latest research on drug hypersensitivity here.
