    To elucidate the link between the intake of animal fat and asthma, a murine model was developed to examine the effect of dietary cholesterol on pulmonary allergic inflammation. Male C57BL6 mice were fed either a control diet or a diet supplemented with 2% cholesterol. Following sensitization and...

    To characterize the cellular inflammation at the bronchial and bronchoalveolar levels, we evaluated 43 patients with asthma who were sensitized to house dust mites. On 2 consecutive days patients underwent methacholine challenge and allergen bronchial challenge. In addition, 6, 24, or 72 h...

    THE goal of our study was to assess the chemotactic activity for eosinophils (ECA) and neutrophils (NCA) and histamine releasing activity (HRA) in crude supernatants of mononuclear cells in monosensitized atopic asthmatics and healthy controls. Chemotactic activity for ECA and neutrophils was...

    Objective and design: The induction of sputum is a safe, noninvasive method of studying airway inflammation in asthma, but the method of analyzing the samples is laborious and requires well-trained technicians using highly specialized laboratory equipment. We introduce a shorter and simpler...

    The region of human chromosome 6 containing the MHC has been identified as influencing asthma and atopy (allergy) by several genome-wide searches. The MHC contains many genes with potential effects on innate and specific immunity. As a first step in dissecting MHC influences on asthma and its...

    Eosinophilic leukocytes accumulate in high numbers in the lungs of asthmatic patients, and are believed to be important in the pathogenisis of asthma. A potent eosinophil chemoattractant is produced in the asthmatic lung. This small protein, the chemokine eotaxin, is synthesized by a number of...

    Background: Patients with allergic rhinitis and allergic asthma demonstrate comparable local and systemic eosinophil inflammation, and yet they present with different clinical pictures. Less is even known about the contribution of neutrophil inflammation in allergic diseases. The aim of the...
