Mechanism of perennial allergic asthma

Lancet
D W Cockcroft

Abstract

The early (immediate) allergic asthmatic response does not account for the clinical features of perennial asthma. However, the late response--now thought to be due to allergen-IgE reaction-and the increase in non-allergic bronchial reactivity that is seen in allergen-sensitive asthmatics and that follows the late response do suggest an explanation. If the increased non-allergic bronchial reactivity somehow enhances bronchial responsiveness to allergen there would, in perennial allergic asthma, be a vicious circle. It will not be easy to test, in the laboratory or clinically, the validity of this hypothesis, but there are important implications for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.

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.

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.
