Abstract: Allergic rhinitis is an inflammatory disorder with the characteristic symptoms itching, sneezing, secretion and blockage upon allergen contact. In addition to the local inflammation in the nose, there is a systemic component that influences peripheral blood, bone marrow and lungs.
The aim of this thesis was to describe pathology in the upper and lower airways in young children from the COPSAC birth cohort with investigator-diagnosed allergic- and non-allergic rhinitis. Nasal congestion is a key symptom in both allergic- and non-allergic rhinitis, and eosinophilic inflammation is a hallmark of the allergic diseases.

This thesis is being submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the. atopy, allergic rhinitis and sleep disordered breathing) on face shape in children. The study sample, comprising of 4784 British Caucasian children of which.Allergic rhinitis results from an immunological abnormality in which atopic individuals produce immunoglobulin E (IgE) to allergens (e.g. pollen, house dust mites, animal dander and moulds). IgE activates mast cells, which respond by releasing inflammatory mediators.The symptoms of allergic rhinitis include stuffy or runny nose, sneezing, irritation of the eyes, sore throat, post-nasal drip, cough, headache, fatigue and dark circles under the eyes. At least 35.9 million people in the United States have seasonal allergic rhinitis (hay fever) 1, accounting for approximately 14.1 million visits to physician.
Quality of life in allergic rhinitis QOL is a concept including a large set of physical and psychological characteristics assessing prob-lems in the social context of the lifestyle by the patient himself by means of questionnaires. It was not until the early 1990s that HRQOL ques-tionnaires in the field of AR were introduced (Juniper and Guyatt.Read More

This PhD thesis explores the relationship between helminth infection and allergic disease in a paediatric population in a rural setting in central Vietnam, first in a cross-sectional survey and then also in an intervention study with an antihelminthic agent to see whether helminth infection reduces the risk of clinical allergic disease and.Read More
Background: Allergic disease is uncommon in developing countries, especially in rural areas. A protective effect of helminth infection has been implicated as a potential explanation. Objectives: To determine whether reduced exposure to helminth infection is associated with a higher risk of allergen skin sensitisation and allergic disease, and whether such an association could be explained by a.Read More

Thesis or dissertation: Abstract: Introduction: Interleukin (IL)-10-producing B cells (Bregs) regulate immune responses in autoimmune disease; however their role in allergy is unclear. Allergen exposure in predisposed atopic individuals results in the induction of IgE-secreting B cells, crucial in the immunopathophysiology of allergic rhinitis.Read More
Breathing disorders can potentially influence craniofacial development through interactions between the respiratory flow and genetic and environmental factors. It has been suggested that certain medical conditions such as persistent rhinitis and renal insufficiency may have an influence on face shape. The effects of these conditions are likely to be subtle; otherwise they would appear as an.Read More
Allergic rhinitis is known to be a risk factor for the development of asthma, yet not all with rhinitis develop asthma. The overall aim was to investigate the involvement of eosinophils in allergic rhinitis and allergic asthma in vivo and in experimental settings, with a focus on differences between rhinitis and asthma. Birch pollen allergy was.Read More
