Allergic to Dogs and Allergies in Dogs Resource

Chemical Mediators or Signaling Molecules Associated With Allergies

Chemicals that transmit information between cells are termed a chemical mediator (a.k.a. signaling mediator or signaling molecule). A number of chemicals produced by the immune system are associated with the allergy response and inflammation. 

Examples of inflammatory chemical mediators associated with allergies include:

Chemical Mediators Associated With Allergies

Cytokines (Chemokines, Lymphokines and Interleukins) and Allergies Cytokines (chemokines, lymphokines and interleukins)
Learn about this diverse, multi-functional group of immune system messenger molecules that play a notable role in inflammation associated with allergies. In particular, chemokines, lymphokines and interleukins will be explored.
Eicosanoids, Arachidonic Acid and Allergies Eicosanoid inflammatory mediators (leukotrienes and prostaglandins)
Discover through the use of schematics how eicosanoids are synthesized in the body and the role omega-3 and omega-6 have in this process. Moreover, understand why eicosanoids, leukotrienes and prostaglandins influence inflammation and allergies.
Histamine and Allergies Histamine
Possibly the most widely known inflammatory chemical mediator involved in an allergy response is discussed here.
