Two Cases of Atopic Dermatitis Improved by Combination Treatment of Allergen-Specific Immunotherapy and Histamine-Immunoglobulin Complex

  • Korean J Asthma Allergy Clin Immunol.
  • 2005 Sep;25(3):234-238.
The effect of allergen-specific immunotherapy on atopic dermatitis is still controversial, and allergen-specific immunotherapy is not recommended as a standard treatment in current international guidelines. We report that two house...
Occupational Asthma and Rhinitis due to Cyanoacrylate Glue

  • Korean J Asthma Allergy Clin Immunol.
  • 2005 Sep;25(3):231-233.
Cyanoacrylate has been mostly used as a component of a high strength glue for pasting different materials. We report a case of occupational asthma and rhinitis due to cyanoacrylate. After...
A Case of Diclofenac-Induced Anaphylaxis with Elevated Serum Tryptase

  • Korean J Asthma Allergy Clin Immunol.
  • 2005 Sep;25(3):228-230.
Diclofenac is a non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which belongs to the phenylacetic acid group. It is commonly used in inflammatory conditions of various etiologies, degenerative joint disease, rheumatoid arthritis and...
A Case of Chromium- and Toluene Diisocyanate-Induced Asthma

  • Korean J Asthma Allergy Clin Immunol.
  • 2005 Sep;25(3):223-227.
There have been case reports of occupational asthma (OA) due to chromium in cement workers. Isocyanates are used in the manufacture of numerous products, such as polyurethane paints, and are...
Effects of Obesity and Smoking on Bronchial Hyperresponsiveness in Korean Adults

  • Korean J Asthma Allergy Clin Immunol.
  • 2005 Sep;25(3):217-222.
BACKGROUND: Bronchial hyperresponsiveness (BHR) is a key feature of asthma and may precede the development of asthma. There were few reports concerning prevalence and risk factors of BHR in Korean...
IL-13 And IL-5 in Induced Sputum in Patients with Eosinophilic Bronchitis and Asthma: an Association with Airway Hyperresponsiveness

  • Korean J Asthma Allergy Clin Immunol.
  • 2005 Sep;25(3):210-216.
BACKGROUND: Experimental studies on asthma have indicated that IL-13 induces airway hyperreactivity (AHR). However, it remains unproven that IL-13 is responsible for AHR of asthmatics. Eosinophilic bronchitis (EB) shows normal...
The Effectiveness of Pimecrolimus in Airway Inflammation and Bronchial Hyperresponsiveness in Murine Asthma Model

  • Korean J Asthma Allergy Clin Immunol.
  • 2005 Sep;25(3):205-209.
BACKGROUND: Pimecrolimus is effective in atopic dermatitis and psoriasis. However, little is known about the effectiveness of pimecrolimus in allergic asthma. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess...
Increased PMA-stimulated Release of MMP-9 and TGF-beta1 in the Plasma of Children with Persistent Asthma

  • Korean J Asthma Allergy Clin Immunol.
  • 2005 Sep;25(3):200-204.
BACKGROUND: The contribution of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9 to the pathogenesis of asthma has been reported. Transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta1 and interleukin (IL)- 11, and -17 are profibrotic cytokines which increase...
Comparison of Clinical Characteristics and Prognosis of Chronic Urticaria according to the Aspirin Sensitivity

  • Korean J Asthma Allergy Clin Immunol.
  • 2005 Sep;25(3):194-199.
BACKGROUND: The pathogenic mechanism of chronic urticaria and its prognosis are still unknown. One third of chronic urticaria patients have been associated with aspirin sensitivity. To investigate the prevalence of...
The Risk Factors for Persistence of Asthma Symptoms in Late Childhood for 10 Years of Follow-Up

  • Korean J Asthma Allergy Clin Immunol.
  • 2005 Sep;25(3):187-193.
BACKGROUND: We aimed to determine potential risk factors for persistence of symptoms in subjects with asthma from late childhood to late puberty. METHOD: One hundred and ninety-four children with asthma...
Comparison of Plasma Eotaxin Family Level in Aspirin-Intolerant and Aspirin-Tolerant Asthma Patients

  • Korean J Asthma Allergy Clin Immunol.
  • 2005 Sep;25(3):181-186.
BACKGROUND: Eosinophilic infiltration of airway tissue is a central feature of aspirin-intolerant asthma (AIA). Eotaxins belong to the family of CC chemokines, which coordinate the recruitment of inflammatory cells bearing...
Factors Influencing the Responsiveness to Inhaled Glucocorticoids in Patients with Moderate to Severe Asthma

  • Korean J Asthma Allergy Clin Immunol.
  • 2005 Sep;25(3):175-180.
BACKGROUND: Inhaled glucocorticoids (GC) are the most effective control therapy for asthma. Although the clinical effects of inhaled GC are different, there are little data on the differences in the...
