Silver-absorptive cells in liver parenchyma. II. Morphochemical studies in guinea pigs after anaphylactic and histamine-induced shock

Abstract

Using specific morphological and ultrastructural methods, the author demonstrated silver-absorptive cells in perisinusoidal areas in the liver parenchyma of guinea pigs. These cells exhibited some features characteristic of the endocrine cells of the diffuse APUD system. In anaphylactic and histamine shock their number decreased. These cells probably play a role in the pathogenesis of experimental bronchial 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.

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

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