(10,11) ADAM33 has been extensively studied as an asthma risk factor because of its likely role in cell differentiation, abnormal proliferation, and airway remodeling. (12,13) The single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of ADAM33 gene have been studied in subjects of various ethnicities, but the strength of the association of these variants with asthma development has been found to vary in different populations, and several studies have reported contradictory results regarding the association of these SNPs within sub-ethnic groups of the same population.
In practice, however, we often come across patients with fixed airway obstruction and irreversible changes arising from airway remodeling, which is the risk factor for poor disease control and frequent exacerbations.
The company said the 1,000 patients suffering from nasal obstruction successfully received the VIVAER Nasal Airway Remodeling treatment (VIVAER), which uses patented non-invasive low temperature radio frequency technology to reshape nasal tissues.
Thus, HBECs stimulated with PM2.5 exhibited increased expression of extracellular HMGB1 and RAGE, accompanied by the nuclear translocation of NF-[kappa]B and production of TGF-[beta]1, PDGF-AB, and PDGF-BB, which are critical factors involved in the development of fibrosis and airway remodeling.
Second, genetic studies and airway remodeling have received more attention.
Th2 cells recognize allergic antigens and produce IL-4, IL-5, and IL-13 to induce eosinophil infiltration in the lung, goblet cell hyperplasia in the trachea, and airway remodeling in the clinical manifestations of asthma [6].

The results support previously-reported data finding that both intravenous (IV) and IN (intranasal)administration of Cymerus MSCs caused statistically significant improvements in the three main features (airway hyperresponsiveness, inflammation and airway remodeling) of asthma in this model.

To study airway remodeling, we used the Sirius Red staining technique (Malkusch et al.
