Abstract

Tachykinins-namely, substance P (SP), neurokinin A (NKA), and neurokinin B (NKB)-are members of a family of neuropeptides that are widely distributed in sensory nerves and in the central nervous system (CNS). hey play a pivotal role in airway neurogenic inflammation, bronchocontriction, immunomodulation, and cough.
