  1. 1. Eosinophil Inflammation in Allergic Disease : Clinical and experimental studies in allergic asthma and allergic rhinitis

    Author : Mary Kämpe; Marie Carlson; Christer Janson; Gunnemar Stålenheim; Magnus Sköld; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Allergic asthma; allergic rhinitis; eosinophils; pollen season; bronchial challenge; nasal challenge eosinophil degranulation; PI3K signalling; Allergology; Allergologi; Lung Medicine; Lungmedicin; Lung Medicine; Lungmedicin;

    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

  5. 5. T lymphocytes in allergic rhinitis

    Author : Mats G. Karlsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : 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
