Pharyngitis presents as an inflammation of the oropharynx, and clinical examination often shows evidence of nasopharyngitis. In numerous cases the condition occurs as a self-limiting illness of non-infectious aetiology, whose clinical management remains a matter for debate given the inappropriateness of antibiotics, the reported worsening following steroid use and the recent discouragement of the use of Chinese herbal medicine. The aim of the present study was thus to test VBC-1814/7J, a poly… 
Human-origin Lactobacillus salivarius AR809 protects against immunosuppression in S. aureus-induced pharyngitis via Akt-mediated NF-κB and autophagy signaling pathways.
Lactobacillus salivarius AR809 is a newly discovered probiotic strain from a healthy human pharynx and has potential ability to adhere to the pharyngeal epithelium and inhibit Staphylococcus aureus-induced inflammatory response, and therefore has potential for use in preventing pharyngitis and other inflammatory diseases.
Lysozyme in the treatment of non-infectious sore throat
Despite the adverse impact of non-infectious sore throat on professional performance and reduced quality of life, only a small number of teachers is seeking professional medical help, possibly due to a low level of awareness on this topic.
Application of High-Performance Liquid Chromatography Coupled with Linear Ion Trap Quadrupole Orbitrap Mass Spectrometry for Qualitative and Quantitative Assessment of Shejin-Liyan Granule Supplements

Comparison of Nimesulide and Flurbiprofen in the Treatment of Non-Infectious Acute Inflammation of the Upper Respiratory Tract
Nimesulide treatment gave rise to fewer and less severe side-effects than flurbiprofen treatment, and showed the same efficacy in reducing mucosal congestion, local redness, fever and sore throat.

Flurbiprofen alone allowed an excellent control of pain and of signs of inflammations equivalent to the one obtained in combination with ampicillin but without exposing the patients to the risks of the undesired effects of antibiotics.
Pathophysiology of allergic and nonallergic rhinitis.
In nonallergic rhinitis, several conditions may have been identified that are of interest for further research and phenotyping, including a group of patients with apparent hyperresponsiveness of the C-fiber sensory nerves with no inflammatory changes in the nasal mucosa and a group with mucosal eosinophilia who may have allergic sensitization to common aeroallergens that is, however, manifested only in the nose.

The serum levels of hBD-1, IgA and IgG decrease in infants with recurrent pneumonia, suggesting disorders in the immune defensive function of the respiratory tract, and this may be one of the immunity related reasons for recurrent pneumonia in infants.
Defensins in innate immunity
Growing evidence suggests that theta-defensins offer the best opportunity for therapeutic development as a novel class of broadly active anti-infective and anti-inflammatory agents.
Effects of Sambucus nigra and Aronia melanocarpa extracts on immune system disorders within diabetes mellitus
Natural polyphenols extracted from S. nigra and A. melanocarpa modulate specific and non-specific immune defenses in insulin-deficiency diabetes and reduce the inflammatory status and self-sustained pancreatic insulitis.
Impact of Capsaicin on Mast Cell Inflammation
Several studies have reported that capsaicin is effective in relief and prevention of migraine headaches, improves digestion, helps to prevent heart disease, and lowers blood cholesterol and blood pressure levels.
