Innate Immune System Targets Asthma-Linked Fungus For Destruction


ScienceDaily (Sep. 5, 2008) — A new study shows that the innate immune
system of humans is capable of killing a fungus linked to airway
inflammation, chronic rhinosinusitis and bronchial asthma.

Researchers at Mayo Clinic and the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute
(VBI) have revealed that eosinophils, a particular type of white blood
cell, exert a strong immune response against the environmental fungus
Alternaria alternata. The groundbreaking findings shed light on some
of the early events involved in the recognition of A. alternata by the
human immune system.

Eosinophils typically combat parasitic invaders of the human body
larger than bacteria or viruses, such as flukes or parasitic worms
(collectively known as helminths). Evidence from different
experimental approaches suggests that asthma and chronic sinusitis can
arise when the body perceives that it has encountered a disease-
causing organism. Environmental fungi such as Alternaria do not
typically cause invasive infections like parasites but for some
reason, in certain people, the body responds as if it is being
attacked and chronic inflammation can result from the ensuing cascade
of immune-related events.

Read the study. It is not a little bit of information.
