Example text

The disease is caused by frequent exposure to mold spores in inhaled air. An immediate hypersensitivity reaction is not the cause of its pathology. In fact, there is no involvement of IgE. Pathology results from Th1-type reactivity to carbohydrate antigens and lectins and the production of high titers of IgG. The IgG antibodies react with the inhaled antigen in the alveolar wall of the lung (see Coombs and Gell classification, type III), causing alveolar wall inflammation and compromising gas exchange.

The alveolar walls reach an area of 60 to 70 m2. 9684_frame_A Page 11 Monday, March 13, 2000 9:36 AM AIRWAY HYPERREACTIVITY 11 Epithelium Except the anterior nares, which are lined by stratified, keratinizing squamous epithelial cells, the epithelium of the upper respiratory tract is formed by ciliated (see cilia) columnar and mucus-secreting cells. The pharynx and parts of the larynx (anterior surface of the epiglottis, upper part of the aryepiglottic folds, and vocal cords) are covered by nonkeratinizing squamous epithelium.

To reduce exposure to outdoor pollens and molds, stay indoors with windows closed, especially during the afternoon. Conduct outdoor activities just after dawn to minimize pollen exposures. • To reduce exposure to indoor molds, fix leaks and eliminate water sources associated with mold growth; clean mold off surfaces. Consider reducing indoor humidity to less than 50%. 9684_frame_A Page 15 Monday, March 13, 2000 9:36 AM ALLERGEN EXTRACTS 15 The effectiveness of allergen avoidance is disputed.
