Allergy, IgE-mediated inflammatory disorders including allergic rhinitis, asthma, and conjunctivitis, affects billions of people worldwide. Conventional means of allergy management include allergen avoidance, pharmacotherapy, and emerging therapies. Among them, chemotherapeutant intake via oral, intravenous, and intranasal routes is always the most common mean. Although current pharmacotherapy exhibit splendid anti-allergic effects, short in situ retention, low bioavailability, and systemic side effects are inevitable. Nowadays, nanoplatforms have provided alternative therapeutic options to obviate the existing weakness via enhancing the solubility of hydrophobic therapeutic agents, achieving in situ drug accumulation, exhibiting controlled and long-time drug release at lesion areas, and providing multi-functional therapeutic strategies. Herein, we highlight the clinical therapeutic strategies and deal with characteristics of the nanoplatform design in allergy interventions via intratracheal, gastrointestinal, intravenous, and ocular paths. The promising therapeutic utilization in a variety of allergic disorders is discussed, and recent perspectives on the feasible advances of nanoplatforms in allergy management are also exploited.

Marine-derived chitosan has been widely examined for its use in developing biomedical materials. Not only is it non-toxic, biocompatible, and degradable, it has also shown unique antimicrobial properties. The antimicrobial properties of chitosan are restricted by neutral and physiological conditions because it is insoluble in water and its pKa values is 6.5. One solution to this problem is to graft chemically modified groups onto the backbone of chitosan. The aim of this paper is to review the m...

Abstract Asthma and allergic diseases are a group of chronic inflammatory disorders that arise as a result of excessive responses of the immune system against intrinsically harmless environmental substances. It is well known that substantial joint characteristics exist between the immune and nervous systems. The semaphorins (Semas) were initially characterized as axon-guidance molecules that play a crucial role during the development of the nervous system. However, increasing evidence indicates ...

Abstract Allergic rhinitis is a chronic inflammatory condition caused by an exaggerated response of the immune system to common allergens. Most pharmacological therapies tend to be palliative and in some cases are associated with adverse effects. There is a growing tendency for people to self-medicate with health supplements as they are generally considered safe, however clinical studies relating to their efficacy and safety are limited. This mixed-methods systematic review aims to synthesise th...

The current study aimed to study the effects of Bulleyaconitine A (BLA) on asthma. Asthmatic mice model was established by ovalbumin (OVA) stimulation, and the model mice were treated by BLA. After BLA treatment, the changes in lung and airway resistances, total and differential leukocytes in the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) were detected, and the changes in lung inflammation and airway remodeling were observed. Moreover, the secretion of IgE, Th1/Th2-type and IL-17A cytokines in BALF and...

Abstract Allergies affect a significant proportion of the world's population, and existing vaccination strategies to restrict their adverse pathologies often render side-effects. The aim of this study was to design a new vaccine for allergen-specific immunotherapy (SIT), and to investigate its preventive effects during allergic inflammation. We constructed ovalbumin (OVA)-conjugated celastrol-loaded nanomicelles (OVA-NMs-celastrol), wherein celastrol (a bioactive anti-inflammatory compound) was ...

Abstract Despite advances in research, the pathophysiology of food allergy has not yet been fully elucidated. IL-10 has both a pro- and anti-inflammatory effect on the development of food allergy and in order to understand its different immune-modulatory effects the factors that influence the inflammatory microenvironment need to be taken into account. Specific single nucleotide polymorphisms of the IL-10 gene seem to confer an increased risk of developing food allergy, but to date there is a su...

Abstract Relapse in Allergic Rhinitis (AR) is triggered by various unclear mechanisms. Xanthium strumarium L. as a traditional folk medicine can inhibit inflammatory responses through multiple mechanisms. Xanthatin (XT) is a bioactive compound derived from Xanthium strumarium L, and we developed a polymeric micelle (PM) that is dendritic cells (DCs)-specific targeting delivery system loading XT (NGR-XT-PM) based on a cyclic peptide moiety (NGR) to render DCs maturation-resistant for therapy of r...

Abstract Xanthone is a phenolic compound found in a few higher plant families; it has a variety of biological activities, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anticancer properties. However, the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the activity of xanthone in allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) remain to be explored. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the regulatory effects of xanthone in ACD in human keratinocytes (HaCaT cell), and human mast cell line (HMC-1 cell) in vit...

Abstract Background Allergic conjunctivitis (AC) resulting from conjunctival reactive inflammation is a common ocular surface disease. Quercetin is known for its anti-allergic properties but its effects on conjunctivitis are less well understood. Purpose In this study, we evaluated the anti-allergic effects of quercetin in animal models of conjunctivitis, and explored its molecular mechanism(s) of action in cultured human mast cells (MCs). Key results Quercetin inhibited the ovalbumin (OVA) indu...

Abstract Background Cysteinyl leukotrienes (CysLTs) are potent pro-phlogistic mediators in asthma; however, inhibition of CysLT1 receptors is not a consistently effective treatment, suggesting additional regulatory mechanisms. Other cysteinyl-containing lipid mediators derived from docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), namely maresin conjugates of tissue regeneration (MCTRs), were recently discovered. Their production and actions in the lung are therefore of considerable interest. Objective To determine M...
