Researchers identify neuronal colonies responsible for ‘itchiness’ in the throats of mice.

Asthma, accompanied by lung inflammation, bronchoconstriction, and airway hyper-responsiveness, is a significant public health burden.  Currently, asthma treatments such as anticholinergics target the hypersensitive nerves connecting the brain to parasympathetic … Continue Reading Researchers identify neuronal colonies responsible for ‘itchiness’ in the throats of mice.

Novel nanoparticle acts like Trojan horse to halt asthma in animal model.

Allergies are characterized by inappropriate inflammatory responses to benign environmental antigens. Primary clinical approaches to allergic disease consist of symptom control or administration of soluble antigens to skew the immune response … Continue Reading Novel nanoparticle acts like Trojan horse to halt asthma in animal model.

Study successfully targets nerve endings to curb allergic asthma in animal model.

Current asthma medications, which work by suppressing inflammatory signaling by immune cells or by dilating the airways, can stop working over time. Now, a new study from Boston Children’s Hospital, … Continue Reading Study successfully targets nerve endings to curb allergic asthma in animal model.
