Nerve growth factor expression and release in allergic inflammatory disease of the upper airways.

Abstract

It is well known that allergic airways disease is characterized by inflammation and hyperresponsiveness, but the link between these two conditions has not been elucidated. We have previously shown that in allergic rhinitis, hyperresponsiveness is attributable to increased neural reactivity. We thus hypothesized that nerve growth factor (NGF), which is… (More)
