Immediate allergic response in small airways.

The role of small airways in the immediate allergic response is largely unknown. We therefore used the model of precision-cut lung slices (PCLS) in combination with quantitative videomicroscopy to study the early allergic response to allergen in airways ranging from 50 to 900 microm. After PCLS from untreated Wistar rats had been passively sensitized for 16… CONTINUE READING
