The role of vitamin D in the immunopathogenesis of allergic skin diseases

Allergy

Dec 17, 2011

A A BensonS P Jariwala

Abstract

Vitamin D plays key roles in innate and adaptive immunity through the stimulation of Toll-like receptors, increasing pro-inflammatory cytokine production, and possibly enhancing T helper type 2 responses. These mechanisms may explain the growing body of evidence connecting vitamin D to ...read more

Urticaria

Urticaria, also known as hive, is a vascular reaction of the skin characterized by erythema and wheal formation due to localized increase of vascular permeability. Discover the latest research on urticaria here.

Schoenlein-Henoch Purpura

Schoenlein-Henoch purpura is a systemic non-thrombocytopenic purpura caused by hypersensitivity vasculitis and deposition of IgA-containing immune complexes within the blood vessels throughout the body, including those in the kidney. Discover the latest research on Schoenlein-Henoch purpura here.

Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory genetically determined disease of the skin marked by increased ability to form reagin (IgE), with increased susceptibility to allergic rhinitis and asthma, and hereditary disposition to a lowered threshold for pruritus. Discover the latest research on atopic dermatitis here.

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.

Respiratory Hypersensitivity

Respiratory hypersensitivity is a form of hypersensitivity affecting the respiratory tract. Discover the latest research on respiratory hypersensitivity here.

Food Toxicology

Food toxicology is the study of potential toxins or harmful synthetic agents in food and how these can lead to adverse health outcomes in living organisms, including humans. Here is the latest research on food toxicology.

Food Hypersensitivity

Food hypersensitivity is divided into food allergy and non-allergic food hypersensitivity, the latter of which is also known as food intolerance. Food allergy is an abnormal immune response to food while food intolerance is a detrimental reaction, often delayed, to a food, beverage, food additive, or compound found in foods that produces symptoms in one or more body organs and systems. Discover the latest research on food hypersensitivity.
