Objective:Persistent perennial allergic rhinitis belongs to the most frequent diseases in occupational and environmental medicine. Because the innervation may play a role in the pathogenesis of the disease, the present study analyzed nasal mucosal nerve profiles. Methods:Neuropeptide-containing nerve fibers were examined using immunohistochemistry and related to eosinophil and mast cell numbers. Results:In contrast to constant numbers of mast cells, there was a significant increase in the… Expand
Effect of fluticasone on neuropeptides in nasal lavage in persistent allergic rhinitis.
TLDR
Diminished release of neuropeptides induced b fluticasone propionate was accompanied by an improvement in the clinical symptoms of patients with persistent allergic rhinitis, suggesting a role for neuropePTides in allergic inflammation. Expand
Neuronal Markers in Allergic Rhinitis: Expression and Correlation With Sensory Testing
TLDR
This study looked at the level of specific neuronal markers including the nerve marker protein gene product 9.5, sensory and autonomic neuropeptides, the capsaicin/heat receptor TRPV1, and nerve growth factor in patients with allergic rhinitis and controls and their correlation with nasal sensitivity. Expand
Alterations of Vasoactive Intestinal Polypeptide Receptors in Allergic Rhinitis
TLDR
The results suggest that an increased expression level of VIP receptors is one possible explanation for nasal hyperresponsiveness in patients with allergic rhinitis. Expand
Neuroendocrine cells derived chemokine vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) in allergic diseases.
TLDR
This current review summarizes the current understandings of VIP biology and further explore the significance of neuroendocrine cells derived VIP in the recruitment of inflammatory cells in allergic diseases that may be helpful to the investigators for planning the experiments and accordingly predicting new therapeutic strategies for combating allergic diseases. Expand
Distribution of neuropeptides in nasal and nasopharyngeal mucosa in patients with the post nasal drip syndrome
TLDR
The main histological changes in the patients with the isolated post nasal drip syndrome are a thickened basal membrane, the hyperplasia of basal cells, pronounced hyperplasticity of mucosal glands, the sclerosis of small arterioles. Expand
A Novel Botulinum Neurotoxin Topical Gel: Treatment of Allergic Rhinitis in Rats and Comparative Safety Profile
TLDR
Clinical signs of rhinitis were significantly relieved after a single intranasal administration of RT001 and resolved to normal baseline levels within 5 days after treatment and safety studies in guinea pigs revealed ~31-fold greater safety factor for RT001 when compared with BoNTA complex. Expand

Allergy is an instructive model to study neuroendocrine-immune interaction in chronic inflammation, a key research task taken on by a relatively new scientific field: psychoneuroimmunology (PNI).Expand
Botulinum Toxin Therapy in the Ovalbumin-Sensitized Rat
TLDR
Local BTX-A treatment is an effective method to reduce AR symptoms and may affect the nasal mucosa via the suppression of neuropeptides, playing a major role in autonomous mucosal innervation in the pathophysiology of AR. Expand
Role of parasympathetic nerves and muscarinic receptors in allergy and asthma.
TLDR
Muscarinic antagonists are experiencing a rebirth for the treatment of asthma and may be useful for treating other allergic diseases. Expand
Role of VPAC1 anD VPAC2 receptors in the etiology of pregnancy rhinitis: an experimental study in rats.
TLDR
Gestational up-regulation of nasal VPAC1 and VPAC2 was shown both by PCR and immunohistochemical analysis and this findings support the hypothesis that PR is caused by the activation of subclinical allergy that is present before pregnancy. Expand

Innervation of Human Nasal Mucosa in Environmentally Triggered Hyperreflectoric Rhinitis
TLDR
Differences in human nasal mucosa innervation between nonrhinitic and hyperreflectoric rhinitic subjects are demonstrated and evidence for a modulatory participation of neuropeptide-specific subpopulations of nerve fibers in hyper reflectoric rhinitis is provided. Expand
Aspirin-sensitive rhinitis-associated changes in upper airway innervation
TLDR
Differences in the human nasal mucosa innervation between nonrhinitic and aspirin-sensitive rhinitic individuals demonstrated differences may reflect a pathophysiological role of upper airway innervation in pseudoallergic reactions. Expand
Toxic Rhinitis-Induced Changes of Human Nasal Mucosa Innervation
TLDR
Changes in the neuropeptide content of mucosal parasympathetic, sympathetic and sensory nerves of patients with toxic rhinitis caused by chronic cigarette smoke exposure indicate a differential participation of subclasses of mucosa nerves in the pathophysiology of toxicrhinitis. Expand
Perennial rhinitis subjects have altered vascular, glandular, and neural responses to bradykinin nasal provocation.
TLDR
Results indicate that in normal subjects BK stimulates predominantly vascular permeability, and that cholinergic reflexes do not significantly contribute to their BK-induced nasal secretion, and suggests that BK is more adept at directly inducing vascular effects than glandular secretion of nociceptive nerve-parasympathetic reflexes. Expand
Substance P, calcitonin gene-related peptide, and vasoactive intestinal peptide increase in nasal secretions after allergen challenge in atopic patients.
TLDR
SP, CGRP, and VIP are found in nasal secretions after allergen challenge, which confirms that neuropeptides are released in human beings during allergic reactions, and supports the suggestion that neuroPEptides may be partly responsible for some of the nasal symptoms of allergy. Expand

TLDR
A new concept of the autonomous innervation of the human nasal mucosa is presented and a hypothesis on the pathogenesis of HR is developed, which states that capsaicin leads to a selective degeneration of substance-P immunoreactive nerve fibres and desensitisation of its receptors after repeated topical or systemic application, thus blocking the axon reflex.

Innervation of nasal turbinate blood vessels in rhinitic and nonrhinitic children.
TLDR
Evaluation of PGP, CPON, and CGRP immunoreactivity patterns indicated that rhinitic arteries and AVAs displayed a richer innervation than did nonrhinitic blood vessels. Expand
Neuropeptide Y (NPY).
TLDR
NPY is a 36 amino acid neuropeptide which participates in the regulation of a large number of physiological and pathophysiological processes in the cardiorespiratory system, immune system, nervous system and endocrine system and acts as an immunomodulator by influencing the effects of a variety of other neurotransmitters.

[Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide in the respiratory tract: physiology and pathophysiology].
TLDR
Recent data from animal experiments indicate potent immunomodulatory effects which suggest a future use of this mediator and its agonists in the therapy of immune diseases. Expand
Calcitonin gene-related peptide as inflammatory mediator.
TLDR
Due to the complex pulmonary effects of CGRP with bronchoconstriction and vasodilatation and diverse immunomodulatory actions, potential anti-asthma drugs based on this peptide have not been established so far, however, targeting the effects ofCGRP may be of value for future strategies in nerve modulation.
