    During an allergic inflammatory response in the airway, if a failure of the epithelial cell barrier occurs before the systemic immune response is triggered by allergens, more allergens can invade. Using a rat model of asthma, we previously found that mucosal mast cells, which localise to the...

    The article comments on the investigation of inflammatory response in bronchial biopsy specimens taken from patients admitted to the hospital with severe exacerbation of asthma. There was an increase of eosinophils and neutrophils which resulted in the infiltration of the airways by the...

    Agastachis Herba is one of the well-known medicinal herbs in Korean traditional medicine. This study was taken up to examine the beneficial effects of Agastachis Herba on a mice model of asthma. BALB/c mice were sensitized and challenged with ovalbumin to produce a murine model of asthma....

    Asthma is a complex chronic inflammatory disease of the airways that involves the activation of many inflammatory and other types of cells. We investigated the effect of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) on allergic asthma in rats and compared its effect with that of the glucocorticoid budesonide....

    Background and objectives: The influence of aging on the development of asthma has not been studied thoroughly. The aim of this study was to investigate age-related airway responses involving lung histology and expression of muscarinic receptors in a murine model of acute asthma. Methods: Female...

    Objective: Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the lung that is characterized by airway hyperresponsiveness and the increase of inflammatory cell infiltration into the airways. Naturally occurring flavones have potent anti-inflammatory effects, but their effects on asthmatic responses are still...

    Background: Tetracyclines are broad-spectrum antibiotics that are also used to induce gene expression using the reverse tetracycline transactivator / tetracycline operator system (rtTA/tetO system). The system assumes that tetracyclines have no effects on mammals. However, a number of studies...

    BACKGROUND: Exposure to ozone causes airway inflammation, hyperreactivity, lung hyper-permeability, and epithelial cell injury. An early inflammatory response induced by inhaled O3 is characterized primarily by release of inflammatory mediators such as cytokines, chemokines, and airway...

    Asthma is affecting approximately 300 million people worldwide with 250,000 annual deaths. The marked increase in the global prevalence of asthma is likely to continue over the next two decades. Over the years, corticosteroids remain the mainstay in the treatment of asthma despite recently...

    Asthma is a complex disease linked to various pathophysiological events, including proteinase activity. In this study, we examined whether a Diospyros blancoi methanolic extract (DBE) exerts protective effects on allergic asthma in a murine asthma model. To investigate the specific role of DBE,...
