Data on the effects of sand dust toward allergic asthma produced by indoor allergens, such as house dust mites, are not currently available. This study was undertaken to clarify the role of Asian sand dust on mite allergen, Dermatophagoides farinae (D. farinae)-induced eosinophilic inflammation in the murine lung, using sand dusts from the Maowusu Desert (Inner Mongolia) (SD-1) and the Tengger Desert (China) (SD-2). ICR mice were intratracheally administered saline; SD-1 alone; SD-2 alone; D… CONTINUE READING
