Abstract Communication between mast cells and nerves is perhaps the best current example ofneuroimmune interaction. This occurs in a bidirectional fashion and has been demonstrated in a variety of animal and human tissues in vitro, in vivo and ex vivo . Examples of this interaction and its importance have been produced in experimental models as well as in human diseases, and the unit of mast cell-nerve is thought to play an important homeostatic role in several tissues such as skin, lung… CONTINUE READING
