Pollen is not only responsible for asthma and hay fever but they also increase chances of viral infections
Medical Pollen are not only responsible for asthma and hay fever, the pollen is also an underlying factor of viral infections in the respiratory tract. The ademhalingsslijmvlies is in contact with pollen is more susceptible to the herpes virus responsible for cold sores, chickenpox, and colds. To that determination come researchers from the University of Ghent.

Until today, went to doctors that pollen only responsible for asthma and hay fever. But the pollen of plants and trees also increases the susceptibility to viral infections. That carries risks for the public health, having regard to the number of pollen in the long term will increase due to global warming. The research of virologist is in order, Hans Nauwynck and postdoctoral researcher Jolien Van Cleemput is published in the scientific journal Scientific Reports. the

That pollen also the sensitivity to viral infections, increase, is due to the presence of proteases or 'knipeiwitten to plants provide for the penetration of the stuifmeelkorrel in the pistil. When people make these proteases, the connection between epithelial cells (dekweefsel) and their anchoring to be broken. By the opening of the ademhalingsslijmvlieslaag infect the herpes viruses easier the epithelial cells. The death of these cells then gives rise to diseases such as heavy colds.

The presence of pollen makes the ademhalingsslijmvlies so are more susceptible to viral diseases. In the future, a protease-blockers as medicines, will be tested. That can be the direct destruction of the ademhalingsslijmvlies and the viral susceptibility as a result of pollen theft.
