    Respiratory virus infections leads to coughing, sneezing, and increases in reflex parasympathetic bronchoconstriction and secretions. These responses to viral infection are exclusively or largely secondary to changes in the function of the nervous system. For many with underlying airway...

    Background: The transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) channel, localized to airway sensory nerves, has been proposed to mediate airway inflammation evoked by allergen and cigarette smoke (CS) in rodents, via a neurogenic mechanism. However the limited clinical evidence for the role...

    Bronchial airway microvasculature consists in a developed network of vessels, which plays an important role in normal homeostasis as well as in inflammatory airway processes. Its airway autonomic neural control includes cholinergic and adrenergic innervation, as well as nonadrenergic...

    An initial recognition of occupational asthmogens present in dust, fume or aerosol particles is carried out by a specialized subset of immune cells, dendritic cells and macrophages, present in the airway tissues. When activated by asthmogens these cells release proinflammatory molecular signals...

    Sensory neurons in the airways are finely tuned to respond to reactive chemicals threatening airway function and integrity. Nasal trigeminal nerve endings are particularly sensitive to oxidants formed in polluted air and during oxidative stress as well as to chlorine, which is frequently...
