    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; asthma; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; rhinovirus; exacerbation; airway epithelial cell; ; pattern recognition receptors; interferon; allergen; azithromycin; inflammasome; epithelial-derived cytokines; oxidative stress; asthma; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; rhinovirus; exacerbation; airway epithelial cell; pattern recognition receptors; interferon; allergen; azithromycin; inflammasome; epithelial-derived cytokines; oxidative stress;

    Abstract : Rhinovirus infection is a main trigger of asthma and COPD exacerbations. dsRNA, a viral replication intermediate, is sensed by pattern recognition receptors in the airway epithelium leading to down-stream induction of anti-viral interferons. READ MORE

  3. 3. Effects of Asthma Combination Therapy on Extracellular Matrix Remodeling in Human Lung Fibroblasts

    Author : Lizbet Todorova; Lungbiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Asthma; Proteoglycans; Lung fibroblasts; Collagen; Airway remodeling; TGFβ; Glucocorticoids; Combination therapy.; β2-agonist; MMPs;

    Abstract : Fibroblasts, being one of the resident and structural cells of the lung, have the capacity to produce inflammatory mediators, cytokines and extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins perpetuating the inflammation in the airways of asthmatics. Airway remodeling is also a prominent feature of asthma that affects the lung function causing a thickening of the airways. READ MORE
