Modeling Allergic Asthma in Mice - Pitfalls and Opportunities

Kumar, Rakesh K; Foster, Paul S


Studies in murine experimental models have contributed greatly to understanding the mechanisms of allergic inflammation underlying asthma. However, models involving short-term high-level exposure of sensitized animals to antigen have significant limitations for investigating the pathogenesis of the lesions of chronic asthma. Modeling chronic asthma is problematic, because long-term antigenic challenge often triggers widespread pulmonary parenchymal inflammation or leads to eventual...[Show more]
