Example text

Studies in asthmatics have established that CC chemokines are expressed by airway epithelial cells, and that allergen challenge can up-regulate expression of chemokines in the airway. The levels of chemokines expressed during allergen-induced late phase responses demonstrate correlations between individual chemokines and subsets of leukocytes which respond to these chemokines. During inflammatory responses epithelial cells, macrophages and, to a lesser extent, eosinophils and lymphocytes localized to the subepithelial layer are significant sources of chemokines.

These inflammatory cells recruited from the circulation release cytokines and proinflammatory mediators. The profile of cytokines released during the LPR is characterized by the expression of Th2 cytokines (IL-4, IL-5, IL-9, IL-13) rather than Th1 cytokines [interferon-γ (IFN-γ, IL-12)]. Corticosteroids have an inhibitory effect on the LPR and also reduce the number of cells expressing IL-4 mRNA and IL-5 mRNA, and the number of eosinophils. EPR and LPR in the lung Inhalation of allergen by sensitized individuals results in an early phase response with airway narrowing which develops within 10–15 minutes, reaches a maximum within 30 minutes, and generally resolves within 1–3 hours response.

26 Modulation of allergic responses by cytokines, chemokines, and adhesion molecules leukocyte. This change in leukocyte integrin affinity from a low-affinity to a high-affinity integrin binding state leads to tight adherence of the leukocyte to endothelium and subsequent leukocyte extravasation. Once the leukocyte extravasates between endothelial cells into the extracellular space, the chemokine concentration gradient promotes directed cell migration to the site of inflammation. g. eosinophils, basophils, monocytes, and lymphocytes), they have received attention as a target to modulate the allergic inflammatory response.
