Abstract:

Three types of relationships between infectious processes in the lungs and infectious-allergic bronchial asthma were observed A process in the bronchopulmonary apparatus activates sensitization of the organism by noninfectious allergens, mainly as the result of nonspecific injury to the mucous membranes of the bronchi, promoting penetration of the allergens into the organism of the patients Acute nonspecific disease of the respiratory tract provokes the appearance of bronchial asthma in individuals previously sensitized by noninfectious agents The inflammatory process in the bronchopulmonary apparatus arises secondarily, as the result of disturbance of the functional state of the bronchial tree. Thus during bronchial asthma of a noninfectious nature an infection can be a promoting or challenging factor and also a complication.
