Up-Regulation (Physiology)

A positive regulatory effect on physiological processes at the molecular, cellular, or systemic level. At the molecular level, the major regulatory sites include membrane receptors, genes (GENE EXPRESSION REGULATION), mRNAs (RNA, MESSENGER), and proteins. [from MeSH]

Mediator of inflammation

The endogenous compounds that mediate inflammation (AUTACOIDS) and related exogenous compounds including the synthetic prostaglandins (PROSTAGLANDINS, SYNTHETIC). [from MeSH]

Serpin

Irreversible serine proteinase inhibitors that exert their action on peptidases. Serpins can be localized inside, or outside of the cell, and are found in all groups of organisms with the exception of fungi. In human plasma, serpins represent approximately 2% of the total protein present. [from NCI]

Bronchial Hyperreactivity

Tendency of the smooth muscle of the tracheobronchial tree to contract more intensely in response to a given stimulus than it does in the response seen in normal individuals. This condition is present in virtually all symptomatic patients with asthma. The most prominent manifestation of this smooth muscle contraction is a decrease in airway caliber that can be readily measured in the pulmonary function laboratory. [from MeSH]

Methacholine chloride

A quaternary ammonium parasympathomimetic agent with the muscarinic actions of ACETYLCHOLINE. It is hydrolyzed by ACETYLCHOLINESTERASE at a considerably slower rate than ACETYLCHOLINE and is more resistant to hydrolysis by nonspecific CHOLINESTERASES so that its actions are more prolonged. It is used as a parasympathomimetic bronchoconstrictor agent and as a diagnostic aid for bronchial asthma. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1116) [from MeSH]

Prostaglandins

One of several hormone-like substances made by the body. Different PGs control blood pressure, contraction of smooth muscles, and other processes within tissues where they are made. Certain PGs are being studied as cancer biomarkers. [from NCI]

Disorder of bronchus

The bronchi are two tubes that branch off the trachea, or windpipe. The bronchi carry air to your lungs. The most common problem with the bronchi is bronchitis, an inflammation of the tubes. Bronchitis can be acute or chronic. Other problems include: -Bronchiectasis, a condition in which damage to the airways causes them to widen and become flabby and scarred. -Exercise-induced bronchospasm, which happens when the airways shrink while you are exercising. -Bronchiolitis, an inflammation of the small airways that branch off from the bronchi. -Bronchopulmonary dysplasia, a condition affecting infants. Treatment of bronchial disorders depends on the cause.  [from MedlinePlus]

Allergy

An allergy is a reaction by your immune system to something that does not bother most other people. People who have allergies often are sensitive to more than one thing. Substances that often cause reactions are: -Pollen. -Dust mites. -Mold spores. -Pet dander. -Food. -Insect stings. -Medicines. Normally, your immune system fights germs. It is your body's defense system. In most allergic reactions, however, it is responding to a false alarm. Genes and the environment probably both play a role. Allergies can cause a variety of symptoms such as a runny nose, sneezing, itching, rashes, swelling, or asthma. Allergies can range from minor to severe. Anaphylaxis is a severe reaction that can be life-threatening. Doctors use skin and blood tests to diagnose allergies. Treatments include medicines, allergy shots, and avoiding the substances that cause the reactions. NIH: National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.  [from MedlinePlus]

Disorder of immune system

Your immune system is a complex network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to defend against germs. It helps your body to recognize these foreign invaders. Then its job is to keep them out, or if it can't, to find and destroy them. If your immune system cannot do its job, the results can be serious. Disorders of the immune system include: -Allergy and asthma - immune responses to substances that are usually not harmful. -Immune deficiency diseases - disorders in which the immune system is missing one or more of its parts. -Autoimmune diseases - diseases causing your immune system to attack your own body's cells and tissues by mistake.
