Neurotransmitter dopamine influences childhood asthma

According to new research published in the journal Immunity, neurons that produce the neurotransmitter dopamine communicate with T cells to intensify allergic inflammation in the lungs of young mice but not older mice. The findings rationalize that children are more susceptible to developing allergic asthma than adults. An estimated 6 million children have allergic asthma, making asthma one of the most common long-term diseases of childhood. By emphasizing the significant role of interactions between the nervous system and the immune system in childhood asthma, the results could lead to new approaches for treating the common chronic disease.
