Abstract

Twenty asymptomatic atopic asthmatics were treated with either cimetidine 100 mg orally (13 patients) or placebo (7 patients) once a day for 4 weeks. Bronchial challenges were performed with the pertinent allergen immediately before and 2 and 4 weeks after the initiation of treatment an...read more

Mast Cells in Allergy

Mast cells are key components involved in allergic reactions. They release chemical mediators that are responsible for the clinical symptoms of an allergic reaction. These chemical mediators include histamine, cytokines, leukotrienes and many others. Discover the latest research on mast cells in allergy here.

Basophils

Basophils are myeloid cells with a high affinity IgE receptor and is involved in inflammatory responses during allergy. Discover the latest research on Basophils 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.

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.

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.

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.
