Nasal Neural-Chemical Receptors
Abstract:Nasal neural-chemical receptors of the nose play an important role in the physiology of both the upper and lower airways. The H1 histamine receptor initiates significant reactions while the H2 histamine receptor is essentially nonfunctional in the nose. Other major nasal receptors are the alpha and beta2 adrenoceptor, cholinoceptor, and the irritant receptor. Understanding the characteristics of these receptors both in terms of agonistic and inhibiting drugs is important in the proper treatment of rhinitis, sinusitis, and asthma.
