With so many of us wrestling with fears and unknowns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, every throat tickle, nose drip, or cough is suspect: do I have coronavirus? By now, we all know that COVID-19, the illness caused by coronavirus, can cause severe, life-threatening symptoms, although the majority of people who have it will experience a mild to moderate version. Of course, it is spring, so many people may be experiencing their annual springtime tree pollen allergies. Colds also remain common, just as was true before the coronavirus. And although influenza season is coming to an end, perhaps you’ve wondered if so...

Authors: van Kampen V, Hoffmeyer F, Monsé C, Raulf M, Brüning T, Bünger J, Sucker K Abstract Atopic, allergic, and especially asthmatic subjects might be particularly susceptible to sensory irritation induced by airborne chemicals compared to healthy individuals. Therefore, a good characterization of subjects is essential in inhalation exposure studies on sensory irritants. A total of 105 volunteers, 87% of whom reported to be non-allergic, participated in a medical examination that included skin prick test (SPT), measurements of total IgE, specific IgE (sIgE) to an ubiquitous allergen mix (sx1), a...

Abstract Mast cells are tissue-resident immune cells that are involved in inflammation and fibrosis but also serve beneficial roles, including tissue maintenance, angiogenesis, pathogen clearance, and immunoregulation. Their multifaceted response and the ability of their mediators to target multiple organs and tissues means that mast cells play important roles in numerous conditions, including asthma, atopic dermatitis, drug sensitivities, ischemic heart disease, Alzheimer disease, arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, infections (parasites, bacteria and viruses), and cancer. As a result, mast cells have become an ...

Authors: Feleszko W, Rossi GA, Krenke R, Canonica GW, van Gerven L, Kalyuzhin O Abstract Introduction: The prevalence of chronic inflammatory airway diseases is rising. Their treatment with corticosteroids increases infection risk, while overuse of antimicrobial agents may increase morbidity and antimicrobial resistance. Non-specific immunomodulatory compounds alter immune responses to both infectious and atopic challenges. These compounds may offer an alternative approach for symptom reduction and prophylaxis against both infections and exacerbations in chronic inflammatory airway disease.Areas covered: We assesse...
