Excessive accumulation of histamine in the body leads to miscellaneous symptoms mediated by its bond to corresponding receptors (H1-H4). Increased concentration of histamine in blood can occur in healthy individuals after ingestion of foods with high contents of histamine, leading to histamine intoxication. In individuals with histamine intolerance (HIT)(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND Cough, the most important airways defensive mechanism is modulated by many afferent inputs either from respiratory tussigenic areas, but also by afferent drive from other organs. In animal models, modulation of cough by nasal afferent inputs can either facilitate or inhibit the cough response, depending on the type of trigeminal(More)
Eighteen healthy volunteers with normal lung function were tested for cough. Before and after nasal administration of thymol (0.025 ml, 10(-3) M) into both nostrils, urge-to-cough, cough threshold, cumulative and total count of coughs per provocation were estimated during standardized and validated capsaicin cough challenge. Nasal thymol challenges induced(More)
General idea of this comprehensive review is to summarize information about the role of nitric oxide in the human body—cardiovascular, respiratory, urgenital, gut, NO and immune system, however, NO signaling has a role also in musculoskeletal system, even in bones. NO in the past had been recognized as a molecule relevant to air pollution. In 1980 Furchgott(More)
Cough is a phenomenon frequently associated with upper airway diseases and as a reflex is modulated by many afferent inputs either from respiratory tussigenic areas, but also by afferent drive from other organs. Modulation of cough by nasal afferent inputs could either facilitate cough response or inhibit it in animal models, depending on the type of(More)
Background Nowadays, the vast majority of research focusing on cough in sensitive and/or hyperreactive airways is done on an animal model of guinea pigs intraperitoneally sensitized by ovalbumin. There are no objections to model animal – the neurophysiology and neuropharmacology of their n. X are closest to humans. However, the choice of ovalbumin as model(More)
Menthol is frequently used in over the counter medications for common colds and coughs. It was formerly considered to be under the class of herbal medicine, but identification of menthol receptor (TRPM8) moved it from the class of herbal medicine to the molecular pharmacology. It has been documented that menthol reduces dyspnoea and nasal obstruction via(More)
Background Upper airway diseases (e.g. allergic rhinitis (AR)) are one of most common causes of chronic cough in subjects with negative X-ray finding. In UACS (upper airway cough syndrome), cough is strongly associated with the ongoing nasal inflammation. Effective treatment of nasal inflammation may lead to down regulation of pathologically enhanced(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) is an important endogenous neurotransmitter and mediator. It participates in regulation of physiological processes in different organ systems including airways. Therefore, it is important to clarify its role in the regulation of both airway and vascular smooth muscle, neurotransmission and neurotoxicity, mucus transport, lung development(More)
Cough hypersensitivity affects mainly postmenopausal women. Pathogenesis remains unknown in their case; therefore, an optimal treatment is unavailable. Only male guinea pigs are used in basic cough research and exclusion of females leads to gender bias. Nowadays, the efforts of grant agencies aim to support projects which take gender into account and(More)
