Th1Th2 Regulation Allergy and Hyposensitization

In the last two decades it became clear that for T-helper cells subsets can be defined, which differ in the spectrum of cytokines they secrete 1 . Th1 cells producing cytokines such as IL-2 and IFN-y are involved in the response against intracellular pathogens, whereas Th2 cells producing mainly IL-3, IL-4, IL-5, and IL-13 play a role in combatting extracellular pathogens. The cytokines secreted by one subset have an autocrine effect on their own population and a suppressive effect on the population of the other subset, thus providing a balance between Th1 and Th2 cells, see Fig. 13.1 for a simplified scheme. Several diseases are connected with a perturbation of this balance 2 . For example, an allergy of type I is a typical Th2-dominated response. A widespread and successful therapy of allergy, hyposensitization, e.g., against bee venom, pollen, or house dust mites, consists in the initial phase in subcutaneous injections of increasing doses of allergen in varying intervals following...

Botanical Code of Nomenclature

Botanical insecticide (botanical) An insecticide derived from plant material. Botanicals are accepted for use in organic crop production, but they can leave residues and may be disruptive to natural predators of pests and also be toxic to humans. Pyrethrum, a broad-spectrum insecticide derived from the dried flower heads of Chrysanthemum cinerarifolium, disrupts an insect's nervous system on contact. Many botanicals degrade rapidly in sunlight and may cause allergic reactions and dermatitis in humans. Some are more toxic, e.g. rotenone, derived from the roots of various tropical legumes, including Der-ris, a broad-spectrum insecticide. This is safe for honeybees, but does kill some other beneficial insects, and can be fatal if inhaled by mammals.

Safety of Augmentative Biological Control

Release of parasitoids and predators replaces pesticide application and thus enhances human safety. For workers in insectaries, handling of large quantities of insects or mites is an allergy risk. Where problems arise, risk can be reduced through air exchange or filtration to reduce concentrations of airborne particles and use of gloves and long sleeved shirts to reduce skin contact with arthropod body fragments. Risk to native species posed by releases of non-native natural enemies can be of concern in some instances. Generalist, non-native species released in large numbers may establish outdoors if climates are permissive and attack or suppress populations of native species, or reduce densities of native natural enemies through competition for resources. Consequently, some governments, such as those of Hawaii, Australia, and New Zealand, restrict importation of natural enemies used in augmentative biological control. Importation of North American green lacewing species (Neuroptera...

The Trouble With Towels

In the last year, rumors of severe allergic reactions and carnivorous towels have caused a scare, accompanied by several disappearances. Scientists have theorized that annual variations may have caused a shift in behavior or morphology. GEO and Incorporate states have restricted exports of the organisms and confiscated them from private owners. Natives have shunned inquiries.

Synthesis and Characteristic Components

Another way of introducing lipid solubility into phenolic compounds is to attach a hydrophobic side chain. The allergenic phenolic (catechol) compounds found in resins of Anacardiaceae are of this type (Figure 1-8 Chapters 9 and 10). Alternatively, one or more terpene (prenyl) residues may be attached to phenolic compounds to form prenylated phenolics (e.g., tetrahydrocannabinol, Figure 1-8). Most frequently, the terpenoid substituent is attached directly to the benzene ring, but it also can be attached to a phenolic group. Paseshnichenko (1995) summarized numerous prenylated pheno-lics, pointing out that they occur in nearly every phenolic structural class. He suggested that terpenoid and phenolic metabolism are linked through a control mechanism that regulates the distribution of precursors such as acetate, required for biosynthesis of both terpenoids and phenolics. Phenylpropanoid and flavonoid biosynthetic enzymes appear to form assemblies or complexes that cluster at the ER...

Large Scale Phylogenetic Analysis of HA

As noted, phylogenetics have been widely used to understand history of influenza epidemics, host shifts, as well as evolutionary interactions with the hosts immune system (see Sect. 2.3.1). However, most phylogenetic analyses of influenza thus far have used only fractions of the dataset of influenza nu-cleotide sequences in the public domain. The sequences in the public domain are largely HA, but recently whole genomes have been produced. The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) is rapidly sequencing and releasing into the public domain thousands of influenza genomes under the Microbial Sequencing Center (MSC) program sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) GHE05 . St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis has contributed a significant increase in the number of avian influenza genomes sequences 0BE06 .

Antibiotic stewardship

Physician computer order-entry systems can bring automation to antibiotic stewardship. Computer systems may prompt prescribing physicians with regard to national guidelines, local resistance patterns, drug interactions, and indications for use (Weinstein, 2001). A group from Utah described antibiotic prescribing outcomes during use of an advanced physician order-entry system that linked directly with patients' microbiology records to make prescribing recommendations. During a one-year intervention, ICU physicians used the anti-infectives order-entry system for all patients. The system led to fewer orders for drugs to which the patients had reported allergies, improved drug dosing, lessened antibiotic susceptibility - drug choice mismatches (from 206 before to 12 during intervention), and reduced anti-infective costs, total hospital costs, and length of hospital stay (Evans et al., 1998).

Plant Phenolics as Natural Toxicants and Herbivore Deterrents

Many members of the Anacardiace (cashew family) contain phenolic compounds that can cause severe dermatitis. Urushiol, for example, is an alkylated catechol that is the main active ingredient of poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac, and the main constituent in Japanese lacquer (Figure 2). Urushiol also occurs in mangos, the seeds of ginkos, and the shells of cashew nuts. As little as 50 mg of urushiol is sufficient to cause a complicated delayed allergic reaction with the body's immune

Effects on Particular Organs or Organ Systems

The skin suffers toxic effects itself, including cancer, primary irritation, allergic reactions, hair loss, pigment disturbances, ulceration, and chloracne. Dermatitis is an inflammation of the dermis. Irritant contact dermatitis and allergic dermatitis can both be caused by exposure to chemicals and produce similar symptoms, including hives, rashes, blistering, eczema, or skin thickening. The difference between them is that a true allergy takes time to develop, typically at least two weeks whereas irritation does not require a previous exposure. For example, no one reacts to poison ivy when first exposed. Only after a second or subsequent exposure does the itchy rash develop. Occupational exposure to a variety of substances is known to be capable of causing asthma. This is an allergic reaction in which exposure causes histamine to be released. Histamine stimulates the bronchi to contract, greatly increasing breathing resistance. This is known to affect bakers exposed to flour and...

Synthetic paints and varnish

Epoxy is one of the commercial materials most commonly known to trigger allergies and other problems. At workplaces where people are exposed to epoxy, many of them develop eczema. This is mainly due to the ingredient epichlorohydrin which is also a potent carcinogen. As with another basic ingredient, bisphenol A, it is also a suspected environmental estrogen. Epoxy, even in low concentrations, has a toxic and corrosive effect on water organisms. Ready-cured epoxy products are probably chemically stable, although a certain amount of organic solvent is emitted first. Polyurethane products contain isocyanates that can easily cause skin allergies and asthma. Sensitization causing permanent damage to the mucous membranes can develop, and asthma attacks can then occur practically independent of the level of exposure. The most exposed places are industrial and building sites, but unreacted residues can also be released within buildings. Additives used in PVAC products often include...

Evidence Relating Contact with Nature to Human Health and Well Being

For example, studies of European office and factory workers found viewing nature or the presence of plants could reduce job-related stress, allergies, and improve emotional well-being. Studies in the US also found window views and plants reduced job-related frustration and improved physical and mental well-being. Productivity studies of workers who had contact with plants and views of nature demonstrated fewer errors, more efficient work performance, lower blood pressure, and better attentiveness. Several studies reported workers with improved natural lighting and natural ventilation had significantly better cognitive performance. One particularly ambitious study examined office and manufacturing workers at a furniture company immediately before, immediately following, and 9 months after workers moved from facilities with minimal environmental amenities to new facilities with extensive natural lighting, natural ventilation, natural materials, improved energy...

Class I The Lanthionine Containing Lantibiotic Bacteriocins

Phenotype Nisin

Anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy drug been ascribed to any particular gene product in the comprehensive array of putative ORFs identified in the cinnamycin locus. Intriguingly, the CinA prepeptide has a much longer leader peptide than that of other lantibiotics, and it has been proposed that cinnamycin may be secreted by a more general export mechanism such as the general secretory (Sec) pathway, once again illustrating the broad diversity of the lantibiotic class (Widdick et al. 2003). Cinnamycin has been shown to be a potent inhibitor of phospholipase A2 (an enzyme involved in the synthesis of prostaglandins and leukotrienes in the human immune system) through the sequestration of its substrate phos-phatidylethanolamine. Due to this activity, cinnamycin may prove to have a useful application as an anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy drug (Marki et al. 1991).

Box 81 Some characteristics of oligotrophic and eutrophic lakes

An especially undesirable consequence of eutrophi-cation is the massive development of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae), which tend to form dense surface blooms. Some strains are toxic or cause allergic reactions in humans. Cyanobacteria excrete organic compounds that impart bad odors and tastes to water, creating serious problems in drinking-water. Some of the classic problem algae are the nitrogen-fixing Anabaena and Aphanizomenon, as well as the non-nitrogen-fixing genera Microcystis, Limnothrix, and Planktothrix. Most of the bloom-forming cyanobacteria appear in the late stages of eutrophication. The red-pigmented Planktothrix spp. are unusual in being able to regulate their position in the water column and inhabit the metal-imnion of deep lakes in the early stages of eutroph-ication (often already at 20 g Ptotl_1). Planktothrix is mixed throughout the entire water column during the periods of circulation and becomes layered in the metalimnion during the summer. When


People in every industrialized country have daily contact with pollution problems Climate gas emissions are already almost certainly the cause of most extreme weather events. Between 80 and 90 of all cases of cancer are influenced by environmental factors and the prevalence of allergies is rapidly increasing. At the same time, the rate of extinction of animal and plant species is accelerating -between 1900 and 1950 one species each year disappeared, while in 1990 alone, between one and three species disappeared every hour. Species have always died out and new ones have appeared, but the rate of extinction today is 100 to 1000 times greater than the natural rate (Lawton and May, 1995).

Material Pollution

Material pollution from construction consists of emissions, dust and radiation from materials that are exposed to chemical or physical activity such as warmth, pressure or damage. Within the completed building these activities are relatively small, yet there is evidence of a number of materials emitting gases or dust which can lead to health problems for the inhabitants or users primarily allergies, skin and mucous membrane irritations. The electrostatic properties of different materials also play a role in the internal climate of a building. Surfaces that are heavily negatively charged can create an electrostatic charge and attract dust. Electrical conductors such as metals can increase existing magnetic fields. Building materials can also contain radioactive constituents such as radon gas that can be emitted to the indoor air.


With the invention of the vertically adjustable saw during the sixteenth century, splitting timber by saw became the dominant technique. This method was particularly effective for cutting logs into panelling. For the last couple of centuries, the even more efficient circular saw has been used. For this method, there has to be a rotational force, usually produced by electricity. Rotational energy can also be produced directly by local wind or water turbines, as was the case in most former timber mills. In this way, the loss of energy in conversion to and transport of electricity is eliminated, and energy consumption can be strongly reduced. One should note that sawmills create a lot of dust in the working environment. Dust from western red cedar contains allergenic thujaplicins, and dust from oak and beech is carcinogenic. problems. Certain types of mould tolerate the temperatures used in this technique, and develop quickly on the surface of the wood during drying, emitting spores that...

Natural resins

These products are mainly based on renewable resources, with the exception of some types of solvents. During application, substances can be emitted by the solvent vapour that can lead to respiratory ailments and allergies. Also some of the resins themselves can emit irritants. Colophony is a well-known allergen. These emissions can continue after the building is finished. A varnish layer of natural resin is about as vapour-proof as a synthetic products and the moisture regulating properties of the underlayer is thus aborted. As waste, these products are normally not a problem, depending partly upon the pigment used.


Pigments are relatively well bound within paints, and they are less chemically active. However, where paint is applied by spraying, it is spread into the air as small droplets and pigments can be inhaled. Welding of painted objects, scraping, sanding or removing paint with hot air can all cause the same problem. Pigments containing chrome are strongly oxidizing and thereby irritating and damaging to the respiratory system. Zinc chromate can also cause chrome allergy. Chrome, cadmium and lead compounds are, amongst other things, strongly carcinogenic. Ferric oxides can be considered relatively harmless. Fungicides are often necessary to prevent the paint from attack by mould during storage and after application. The least toxic alternatives are lime and metal sulphates such as alum and ferrous sulphate, which are used in many paints with organic or even mineral binders. Some pigments also have preservative capacities. Paints with 50 zinc white are not attacked by mould. Water-based...
