Allergy and Cardiovascular Diseases

Allergic diseases and cardiovascular diseases are commonly found in developed countries. They lead to serious health difficulties and undoubtedly impair the quality of life. Both the types of diseases are identifying by excessive inflammatory processes. The most life-threatening and deadly demonstration of allergic diseases in anaphylaxis is a condition in which the cardiovascular system is responsible for the majority of clinical symptoms and for the potentially fatal outcome.  Recent Studies suggest a link between allergy and cardiovascular disease, resulting from the overactivity of the immune system in allergic diseases and increased synthesis of proinflammatory mediators.
 
The heart is both a source and a target of chemical mediators released during the allergic reaction. Mast cells are abundant in human heart, where they are located generally around the outermost covering tissue called adventitia of large coronary arteries and in close contact with the small intramural vessels. Cardiac mast cells can be activated by a number of stimuli including complement factors, general anesthetics, muscle relaxants, and allergens. The mediators which are released from immunologically activated human heart mast cells strongly influence ventricular function, cardiac rhythm and coronary artery tone.
