RAGE-dependent VCAM-1 expression in the lung endothelium mediates IL-33 induced allergic airway inflammation.

Allergy 2018 Jun 14. Epub 2018 Jun 14.

Department of Pathology, University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Background: The receptor for advanced glycation endproducts (RAGE) has been implicated as a critical molecule in the pathogenesis of experimental asthma/allergic airway inflammation (AAI). It has been previously shown that RAGE acts both upstream of interleukin-33 (IL-33) release and downstream of IL-33 release via RAGE-dependent IL-33 induced accumulation of type 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s) in the lungs, which perpetuate type 2 inflammation and mucus metaplasia. However, the mechanism by which RAGE mediates downstream IL-33 induced type 2 inflammatory responses is unknown. Read More

Precision medicine in united airways disease: a "treatable traits" approach.

Allergy 2018 Jun 5. Epub 2018 Jun 5.

Department of Otolaryngology, National University of Singapore, Singapore.

United airways disease (UAD) is the concept that the upper and lower airways, which are anatomically and immunologically related, form a single organ. According to this concept, upper and lower airway diseases are frequently comorbid because they reflect manifestations of a single underlying disease at different sites of the respiratory tract. Allergic asthma-allergic rhinitis is the archetypal UAD, but emerging data indicate that UAD is a heterogeneous condition and consists of multiple phenotypes (observable clinical characteristics) and endotypes (pathobiologic mechanisms).

Probiotics for the Airways: potential to improve epithelial and immune homeostasis.

Allergy 2018 Jun 5. Epub 2018 Jun 5.

Clinical Immunology, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium.

Probiotics are live microorganisms that confer a health benefit on the host when applied in adequate amounts. The therapeutic effects of probiotics have been mostly studied in the gastrointestinal tract, but recent evidence points towards the potential of these bacteria to prevent and/or treat chronic airway diseases. In this review, possible mechanisms of action of probiotics in the airways are described, with a particular focus on their capacity to modulate the epithelial barrier function and their mode of interaction with the immune system.

New European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology definition on pollen season mirrors symptom load for grass and birch pollen-induced allergic rhinitis.

Allergy 2018 May 23. Epub 2018 May 23.

German Pollen Information Service Foundation, Berlin, Germany.

Background: The use of allergen immunotherapy (AIT) for allergic rhinitis and its clinical efficacy in clinical trials depends on the effective determination of pollen allergen exposure time periods. We evaluate pollen data from Germany to examine the new definitions on pollen season and peak pollen period start and end as proposed by the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) in a recently published Position Paper. The aim was to demonstrate the ability of these definitions to mirror symptom loads for grass and birch pollen-induced allergic rhinitis based on real-life data. Read More

IgG1 B cell immunity predates IgE responses in epicutaneous sensitization to foods.

Allergy 2018 May 22. Epub 2018 May 22.

McMaster Immunology Research Centre (MIRC), Dept. of Pathology & Molecular Medicine, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, L8N 3Z5, Canada.

Background: The generation of IgE-mediated food allergy in humans is silent, and only diagnosed upon manifestation of clinical symptoms. While experimental models have been used to investigate some mechanisms of allergic sensitization, the generation of humoral immunity and memory remain to be elucidated. Here, we defined the evolution of allergen-specific B cell responses during epicutaneous sensitization to foods. Read More

Gata3 hypermethylation and Foxp3 hypomethylation are associated with sustained protection and bystander effect following epicutaneous immunotherapy in peanut-sensitized mice.

Allergy 2018 May 19. Epub 2018 May 19.

Laboratory for Epigenetics & Environment, Centre National de Recherche en Génomique Humaine, CEA - Institut de Biologie François Jacob, 2 rue Gaston Cremieux, Evry, France.

Background: Epicutaneous immunotherapy (EPIT) is a promising method for treating food allergies. In animal models, EPIT induces sustained unresponsiveness and prevents further sensitization mediated by Tregs. Here, we elucidate the mechanisms underlying the therapeutic effect of EPIT, by characterizing the kinetics of DNA methylation changes in sorted cells from spleen and blood and by evaluating its persistence and bystander effect compared to oral immunotherapy (OIT).

IL-3-producing basophils are required to exacerbate airway hyper-responsiveness in a murine inflammatory model.

Allergy 2018 May 19. Epub 2018 May 19.

Laboratory of Immunoregulation and Immunopathology, Institut Necker-Enfants Malades, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) Unité Mixte de Recherche (UMR) 8253, Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale (Inserm) UMR 1151 and Université Paris Descartes Sorbonne Paris Cité, 75015, Paris, France.

Background: Basophils are commonly associated with allergic responses because of their ability to produce large amounts of pro-Th2 cytokines and histamine. However, the mechanisms through which bone marrow-resident basophils (BMRB) become fully competent cytokine and histamine producers in response to IgE crosslinking are poorly understood. Here, we sought to determine the role of IL-3 in promoting pro-Th2 basophils. Read More
