First flexiVent publication of 2015!

All of us at SCIREQ would like to wish you a Happy New Year!

The first flexiVent publication of 2015 is "Syk Mediates Airway Contractility Independent of Leukocyte Function" by Xiaomin Wang, Nivedita Khanna, Joyce Wu, Krystal Godri Pollitt, Greg J. Evans, Chung-Wai Chow and Jeremy A. Scott in the European Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

"The aim of this study was to further investigate the role of Syk in airway contractility in response to methacholine (MCh) and particulate matter (PM) air pollutants, in the absence of underlying inflammation.” Their results “suggest that Syk mediates airway contractility in the normal and allergic airways, independent of its role and function in leukocytes, and supports a paracrine role for airway epithelial Syk in modulating airway smooth muscle activity."1
