Abstract

In cases dying with asthma, heart muscle stained by the Haematoxylin-basic-Fuchsin-Pikric acid-method showed multiple areas of focal ischaemic injury of single or small groups of muscle fibres. The localisation of these changes in the inner layers of the wall and septum of the ventricle and the pattern of the changes produced, suggest poor coronary perfusion. The changes are explained as the result of combined damage due to hypoxic circulatory disturbances of the heart muscle and the effects of catecholamines. The appearances may provide the morphological basis for accurate diagnosis.

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.
