Substance P receptor-dependent responses of leukocytes in pulmonary inflammation.

Abstract

Pulmonary immunologic responses may be mediated and modulated in part by neuropeptides released from the endings of nerve fibers that innervate the airways. Bronchoconstriction, mucosal edema, and increased airway secretions may be mediated by multiple locally generated neuropeptides. The neuropeptides affect directly and indirectly through other mediators… (More)
