The FAST project (Food Allergy Specific Immunotherapy) aims at the development of safe and effective treatment of food allergies, targeting prevalent, persistent and severe allergy to fish and peach. Classical allergen-specific immunotherapy (SIT), using subcutaneous injections with aqueous food extracts may be effective but has proven to be accompanied by(More)
Hypersensitivity to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) associated with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) and/or asthma comprises a distinct clinical syndrome referred to as NSAIDs exacerbated respiratory disease (NERD). Patients with NERD tend to have more severe course of both upper (CRS and nasal polyps) and lower airway (asthma) diseases and are(More)
INTRODUCTION Allergen-induced basophil activation has been associated with the release of several mediators and with an increased expression of CD203c molecules on basophils. AIM To assess the influence of specific allergens on the generation of 15-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic (15-HETE) from peripheral blood leukocytes in relation to basophil activation, on(More)
BACKGROUND Several proangiogenic molecules have been implicated in the pathogenies of asthmatic inflammation and remodeling. The aim of the study was to compare the concentration of proangiogenic factors in the sera of asthmatic patients and in healthy subjects (HS), and to refer the concentrations to both clinical and inflammatory markers of the disease(More)
Human parainfluenza virus type 3 (HPIV3), while infecting lower airway epithelial cells induces pneumonia and bronchiolitis in infants and children, and may lead to asthma exacerbations in children and adults. Respiratory viruses invading the airway epithelium activate innate immune response and induce inflammatory cytokine release contributing to the(More)
