    Abstract : Allergic diseases are chronic inflammatory conditions, characterised by eosinophil inflammation systemically and in target organs, where cytotoxic granule proteins are responsible for tissue injury. Allergic rhinitis is known to be a risk factor for the development of asthma, yet not all with rhinitis develop asthma. READ MORE

    Keywords : Medical and Health Sciences; Medicin och hälsovetenskap; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The role of the T lymphocyte and T cell associated events in the allergic reaction were investigated in the nasal mucosa and in the peripheral blood. Patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis (birch pollen) and healthy controls were subjected to an allergen provocation study during non-pollen season. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cytokines and their soluble receptors in nasal fluids from school children with allergic rhinitis

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Mikael Benson; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunologi; Immunology; Allergic rhinitis; school children; cytokines; soluble cytokine receptors; nasal fluids;

    Abstract : Allergic inflammation is associated with a shift in the balance between cytokines produced by two T helper subsets (Th1 and Th2) towards a preponderance of Th2 cells. Interleukin (IL)-4 is produced by Th2 cells and interferon-g (IFN-g) by Th1 cells. The ratio IL-4/IFN-g is often used as a marker of the balance between the cytokines. READ MORE
