Clinical aspects of asthma. The pathology of asthma. Inflammation in asthma - I. principles of the inflammatory approach. II. the cells. III. the mediators. The genetics of asthma.

This chapter Asthma and inflammation book several asthma mediators, such as histamine (H), platelet-activating factor (PAF), and oxygen radicals. H is a potent inducer of bronchoconstriction and causes airway microvascular leakage in the bronchial microvasculature—effects that are.

It is widely recognized that neither asthma nor COPD are disease entities but rather each is a complex of inflammatory conditions that have in common airflow limitation (syn. obstruction) whose reversibility varies (Fig. The characteristics and distinctions between mild stable asthma Cited by: 2.

This chapter reviews the biology of the leukotrienes (LTB 4, LTC 4, LTD 4, and LTE 4) and lipoxins (LXA 4 and LXB 4), which are molecules derived by lipoxygenation of arachidonic acid.

Among the granules are some mediators of inflammation. The most common granulocytes are mast cells that line airways, and eosinophils and neutrophils.

Once recruited to airways, they release even more mediators of inflammation. The purpose of this is to enhance the inflammatory effect to get rid of the virus once and for all.
