Inhalation of allergens in atopic patients results in a characteristic inflammatory response while in normal, healthy individuals it elicits no symptoms. The mechanisms by which the pulmonary immune system accomplishes elimination of inhaled particles and suppression of the ensuing inflammatory response are poorly understood. Based on their structural uniqueness, specific localization and functional versatility the hydrophilic surfactant proteins [surfactant protein (SP)-A and SP-D] are… CONTINUE READING
