Description

To study pathogenetic mechanisms in chronic asthma, we employed a novel experimental model that replicates characteristic features of the human disease. Chronic inflammation and epithelial changes, specifically localized to the airways, were induced by repeated exposure of systemically sensitized BALB/c mice to low mass concentrations of aerosolized ovalbumin for 6 weeks. The contribution of Th2 cytokine-driven inflammation to the development of airway lesions and hyperreactivity was assessed...[Show more]
