  • 2012 Jul;4(4):245-247.
  • doi: 10.4168/aair.2012.4.4.245
Immune complexes are found in the circulation of 30%-75% of patients with urticarial vasculitis and much evidence supports the role of these immune complexes in the pathogenesis of urticarial vasculitis....
Two Series of Familial Cases With Unclassified Interstitial Pneumonia With Fibrosis

Lee E, Seo JH, Kim HY, Yu J, Song JW, Park YS, Jang SJ, Do KH, Kwon J, Park SW, Park JH, Hong SJ

  • 2012 Jul;4(4):240-244.
  • doi: 10.4168/aair.2012.4.4.240
Several children presenting with mild symptoms of respiratory tract infection were diagnosed with unclassified interstitial pneumonia with fibrosis. Their clinical and radiological findings were similar to those of acute interstitial...
Expression and Roles of MMP-2, MMP-9, MMP-13, TIMP-1, and TIMP-2 in Allergic Nasal Mucosa

Mori S, Pawankar R, Ozu C, Nonaka M, Yagi T, Okubo K

  • Allergy Asthma Immunol Res.
  • 2012 Jul;4(4):231-239.
  • doi: 10.4168/aair.2012.4.4.231
PURPOSE: Allergic rhinitis (AR) and asthma share many characteristics, but structural changes are observed far less often in AR. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) constitute a family of Zn-dependent endopeptidases that can...
Roles of Periostin in Symptom Manifestation and Airway Remodeling in a Murine Model of Allergic Rhinitis

Hur DG, Khalmuratova R, Ahn SK, Ha YS, Min YG

  • Allergy Asthma Immunol Res.
  • 2012 Jul;4(4):222-230.
  • doi: 10.4168/aair.2012.4.4.222
PURPOSE: Periostin was originally identified as a secreted factor during screening of a mouse osteoblastic library. In a recent study, periostin was found to directly regulate eosinophil accumulation in allergic...
Therapeutic Effects of Mycobacterial Secretory Proteins Against Established Asthma in BALB/c Mice

Han ER, Choi IS, Choi HG, Kim HJ

  • Allergy Asthma Immunol Res.
  • 2012 Jul;4(4):214-221.
  • doi: 10.4168/aair.2012.4.4.214
PURPOSE: Live/killed mycobacteria and culture supernatants can suppress asthmatic reactions. This study investigated whether mycobacterial secretory proteins have therapeutic effects on asthma. METHODS: Mycobacterium bovis bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG; 2x105 CFUs) and...
Asian Sand Dust Enhances Allergen-Induced Th2 Allergic Inflammatory Changes and Mucin Production in BALB/c Mouse Lungs

Kang IG, Jung JH, Kim ST

  • Allergy Asthma Immunol Res.
  • 2012 Jul;4(4):206-213.
  • doi: 10.4168/aair.2012.4.4.206
PURPOSE: Recent studies have reported that Asian sand dust (ASD) has a potential risk of aggravating airway inflammation. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of ASD...
WDR46 is a Genetic Risk Factor for Aspirin-Exacerbated Respiratory Disease in a Korean Population

Pasaje CF, Bae JS, Park BL, Cheong HS, Kim JH, Uh ST, Park CS, Shin HD

  • 2012 Jul;4(4):199-205.
  • doi: 10.4168/aair.2012.4.4.199
PURPOSE: The human WD repeat-containing protein 46 (WDR46; also known as C6orf11), located at the disease-relevant centromere side of the class II major histocompatibility complex region, is hypothesized to be...
Seasonal Factors Influencing Exercise-Induced Asthma

Choi IS, Ki WJ, Kim TO, Han ER, Seo IK

  • Allergy Asthma Immunol Res.
  • 2012 Jul;4(4):192-198.
  • doi: 10.4168/aair.2012.4.4.192
PURPOSE: Exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) in patients with asthma occurs more frequently in winter than in summer. The concentration of house dust mite (HDM) allergens in beds also shows seasonal variation....
Effectiveness of Same Versus Mixed Asthma Inhaler Devices: A Retrospective Observational Study in Primary Care

Price D, Chrystyn H, Kaplan A, Haughney J, Roman-Rodriguez M, Burden A, Chisholm A, Hillyer EV, von Ziegenweidt J, Ali M, van der Molen T

  • Allergy Asthma Immunol Res.

Diesel Exhaust Exposure, Wheezing and Sneezing


  • Allergy Asthma Immunol Res.
  • 2012 Jul;4(4):178-183.
  • doi: 10.4168/aair.2012.4.4.178
The rising incidence of allergic disorders in developed countries is unexplained. Exposure to traffic related air pollutants may be an important cause of wheezing and asthma in childhood. Experimental evidence...
Recent Developments in United Airways Disease
