    Inhaled heparin has been shown to reduce the early and late phase of asthmatic reactions and suppress an allergen-induced increase in bronchial hyperreactivity. The mechanism involved in the control of bronchial hyperreactivity in asthma by heparin is still not understood. The purpose of...

    Background: Subjects with allergic asthma develop isolated late asthmatic reactions after inhalation of allergen-derived T cell peptides. Animal experiments have shown that airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) is CD4+ cell-dependent. It is hypothesised that peptide inhalation produces increases in...

    The interaction of prostaglandin D2 (PGD2) and histamine in human skin was studied by intradermal injection of the compounds alone or in combination in healthy volunteers. Responses were recorded by measurement of areas of wheal and erythema, and changes in cutaneous blood flow quantified using...

    Background: A diagnosis of aspirin-intolerant asthma requires aspirin provocation in specialist clinics. Urinary leukotriene E[sub4] (LTE[sub4]) is increased in aspirin-intolerant asthma. A study was undertaken to investigate new biomarkers of aspirin intolerance by comparing basal levels of...
