Efficacy of local nasal immunotherapy for Dp2-induced airway inflammation in mice: Using Dp2 peptide and fungal immunomodulatory peptide.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Local nasal immunotherapy (LNIT) is an effective immunotherapy. Peptides derived from the group 2 allergen of Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus, Dp2 28-40 and Dp2 28-40A, and fungal immunomodulatory peptide (FIP) have been shown to act as T(H)1 potential and response-inducing adjuvant. LNIT by the use of Dp2 peptides in conjunction with FIP were… (More)
