    The increasing prevalence of allergic rhinitis in many countries is becoming a social problem. It is important to determine whether air pollutants are related to the increase in the prevalence rate of allergic rhinitis or not. In this respect, it is necessary to elucidate whether exposure to air...

    The pathology of chronic asthma in human and mouse is characterized by inflammation and remodeling of airway tissues. As a result of repeated inflammatory insults to the lower airways, smooth muscle thickening, mucin secretion and airway hyperreactivity may develop. In ovalbumin (OVA)-sensitized...

    We examined the behavior of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) and monocytes during subcutaneous plasma extravasation in guinea-pigs. Plasma extravasation was induced by intradermal injection of zymosan-activated plasma (ZAP). The degree of extravasation correlated logarithmically with the...

    Leukotrienes comprise a family of products of the 5-lipoxigenase pathway of arachidonic acid metabolism. The cysteinil leukotrienes C4, D4 and E4 account for the biologic activity that was previously termed "slow-reacting substance of anaphylaxis". The proinflammatory effects of cysteinil...

    Background: In guinea pigs, we have previously demonstrated that the contribution of Rho-kinase to airway responsiveness in vivo and ex vivo is enhanced after active sensitization with ovalbumin (OA). Using conscious, unrestrained OA-sensitized guina pigs, we now investigated the role of...

    Mechanisms underlying airway hyperresponsiveness are not yet fully elucidated. One of the manifestations of airway inflammation is leakage of diverse plasma proteins into the airway lumen. They include fibrinogen and thrombin. Thrombin cleaves fibrinogen to form fibrin, a major component of...

    It has been reported that diesel exhaust (DE) particulates augment increases in nasal congestion and nasal secretion induced by hista-mine (His). We also showed that short-term (3-h) exposure to DE induces nasal mucosal hyperresponsiveness to His. Therefore, in the present study we investigated...
