Abstract

It is well-recognized that the activities of airway neuronal systems can be modulated by various agonist molecules. This brief review examines some of the evidence that inflammation and some of the mediators relevant to the expression of inflammatory processes can also significantly alter the function and activities of airway nerves, The concept of neuronal plasticity and phenotype switching induced by inflammation is also examined, with particular emphasis on sensory airway nerves.
