BACKGROUND Asthmatic inflammation is dominated by accumulation of either eosinophils, neutrophils, or both in the airways. Disposal of these inflammatory cells is the key to disease control. Eosinophilic airway inflammation is responsive to corticosteroid treatment, whereas neutrophilic inflammation is resistant and increases the burden of global health(More)
Suhuang antitussive capsule (Suhuang), a traditional Chinese medication, is found effective in treating chronic cough and cough variant asthma (CVA). This study aimed to determine the possible effects and underlying mechanisms of Suhuang on chronic ovalbumin (OVA)-induced airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR), inflammation, and remodeling in mice. Mice were(More)
Autophagy plays a pivotal role in cellular homeostasis and adaptation to adverse environments, although the regulation of this process remains incompletely understood. We have recently observed that caveolin-1 (Cav-1), a major constituent of lipid rafts on plasma membrane, can regulate autophagy in cigarette smoking-induced injury of lung epithelium,(More)
