Mediation of pulmonary immunity and hypersensitivity by neuropeptides.


Noxious challenges and inflammatory reactions in pulmonary tissue selectively stimulate different subsets of peptidergic nerve fibers to release distinct neuropeptides, that elicit local and systemic responses similar to those of immediate hypersensitivity. The sensory neuropeptides affect functions of leukocytes, epithelial glands, and smooth muscle cells… (More)
