Abstract

Recent investigations offer insights into the possible cause of asthma: Rather than being due to either neural or immunologic events, the fault may lie in concurrent malfunctioning of two interacting systems. Antigenic stimulation, for example, can affect neural depolarization and firing; by the same token, nerve stimulation can affect the growth and function of inflammatory cells.
