Abstract

Severe helminth infections are negatively associated to allergic diseases like asthma; therefore, the immunomodulatory properties of parasite-derived components have been analyzed, raising the possibility of their use as anti-inflammatory molecules. We evaluated the immunomodulatory pro...read more

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.

Neutrophils and their Receptors

Neutrophils are granulated phagocytic cells of the innate immune system. They express a variety of cell surface receptors which can induce activation and migration. Find the latest research on neutrophil receptors here.

Fc Receptors

Fc receptors (fcrs) mediate a plethora of biological functions as diverse as antigen presentation, phagocytosis, cytotoxicity, induction of inflammatory cascades and modulation of immune responses. Discover the latest research on Fc Receptors 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.

Blood Brain Barrier

The blood brain barrier is a border that separates blood from cerebrospinal fluid. Discover the latest search on this highly selective semipermeable membrane here.

Respiratory: Clinical Problems

This feed has been developed in conjunction with the American Thoracic Society for the benefit of its Clinical Problems Assembly. It highlights new and impactful papers on clinical therapeutics, diagnoses, and practices pertaining to respiratory disease.

Ascariasis

Ascariasis is a helminthic infection of global distribution with more than 1.4 billion persons infected throughout the world. Here is the latest research.

Anthelmintics

Anthelmintics or antihelminthics are a group of antiparasitic drugs that expel parasitic worms (helminths) and other internal parasites from the body by either stunning or killing them and without causing significant damage to the host. Discover the latest research on anthelmintics here.

Asthma

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.

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.

Respiratory: Allergy, Immunology & Inflammation

This feed has been developed in conjunction with the American Thoracic Society for the benefit of its Allergy, Immunology, and Inflammation Assembly. It highlights new and impactful papers on allergy, asthma, genetics, and the pathogenesis of lung diseases.

Treg Cells

Treg cells are critical for the maintenance of immune homeostasis and suppression of naturally occurring self-reactive t cells. Discover the latest research on treg cells here.
