    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...

    During a Florida red tide, brevetoxins produced by the dinoflagellate Karenia brevis become aerosolized and cause airway symptoms in humans, especially in those with pre-existing airway disease (e.g., asthma). To understand these toxin-induced airway effects, we used sheep with airway...

    Objective Exercise-in duced bronchoconstriction (EIB) is defined as acute, reversible bronchoconstriction induced by physical exercise. It is widely believed that EIB occurs after exercise. However, in children with asthma the time to maximal bronchoconstriction after exercise is short,...

    Human pregnancy is characterized by significant increases in ventilatory drive both at rest and during exercise. The increased ventilation and attendant hypocapnia of pregnancy has been attributed primarily to the stimulatory effects of female sex hormones (progesterone and estrogen) on central...
