  1. 1. 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

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

    Author : Mikael Benson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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

  3. 3. Systems Biology Based Approaches to Identify Biomarkers in Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis

    Author : Hui Wang; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glucocorticoids; Seasonal allergic rhinitis; Biomarkers; Gene expression microarray analysis; Proteomics; Multivariate analysis; Pathway analysis;

    Abstract : Glucocorticoids (GC) are the most effective anti-inflammatory treatment for seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR). However, a few patients with SAR show poor response to GC treatment. Hence, there is a clinical need to find biomarkers to predict and monitor treatment response. READ MORE

  4. 4. Symptoms and aspects on eosinophil activity in allergic rhinitis

    Author : Cecilia Ahlström-Emanuelsson; Lund näs- och halssjukdomar Öron-; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Allergic rhinitis is a major atopic disease. Even if much is known about the pathophysiology of this condition, and despite the fact that good treatments are available, there is a need for new treatment options, particularly for such aiming at new targets and reduced side effects.

  5. 5. Role of Toll-like receptors in airway inflammation

    Author : Anne Månsson; Klinisk och experimentell allergiforskning; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; lymphocytes; peripheral blood; allergic rhinitis; tonsils; eosinophils; specific allergen immunotherapy;

    Abstract : Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are germline-encoded pathogen-recognition receptors that detect different microbial structures and activate the immune system. The human TLR family presently comprises ten members (TLR1-TLR10), each with distinct properties. READ MORE
