Elevated levels of nerve growth factor (NGF) and NGF-mediated neural plasticity may have a role in airway diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Although NGF is known to affect sensory and sympathetic nerves, especially during development, little is known regarding its effect on parasympathetic nerves, especially on adult neurons. The purpose of this study was to analyze the acute and chronic effects of NGF on the electrophysiological and anatomical properties… CONTINUE READING
