    Inhaled endotoxin, lipopolysaccharide (LPS), has been shown to result in bronchial hyperresponsiveness (BHR) to endogenous bronchoconstrictive mediators such as histamine. To determine the role of sensory neuropeptides released from bronchopulmonary C-fibers in LPS-induced BHR, 24 guinea pigs...

    Airway remodelling, including smooth muscle remodelling, is a primary cause of airflow limitation in asthma. Recent evidence links bronchoconstriction to airway remodelling in asthma. The mechanisms involved are poorly understood. A possible player is the multifunctional cytokine TGF-β, which...

    BACKGROUND: Inhalation of hypertonic or even isotonic saline during sputum induction may cause bronchospasm in susceptible patients with asthma, despite premedication with 400 microg inhaled salbutamol delivered by pressurised metered dose inhaler (pMDI). The bronchoprotection afforded by...

    We investigated the effects of the neuropeptide met-enkephalin on histamine-induced bronhoconstriction in an experimental model of asthma. Classic Konzett and Rössler's method of whole body plethysmography modified by Gjuriš, was applied in the study. This method represents a standard...

    Eosinophils have been shown to play a role in allergen-induced airway responses. The aim in this study was to examine the effects of TAK-661, a newly developed product as a specific inhibitory agent of eosinophil chemotaxis, on antigen-induced asthmatic responses in allergic sheep model. Seven...
