What we say:

Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Natural product-derived therapy for Allergic rhinitis: Linalool, found in coriander leaves, and laurel among others, inhibits GM-CSF, Interleukin 13 receptor(IL-13)-Rα1, and eotaxin expression, among others, inhibits mucus production and alleviates allergic rhinitis via up regulation of its target gene

 


Significance of the study:

Given that: (1) in any given year, nearly 20-30% of people are affected by Allergic Rhinitis; (2) most of the medications available today for allergic rhinitis treats only the symptoms, and provide temporary relief; (3) corticosteroid therapy for allergic rhinitis may have its own side effects; (4) the global economic cost spent in the treatment of allergic rhinitis is enormous, there is an urgent need to find: (i) a way to cure allergic rhinitis, without adverse side effects; (ii) a cheaper alternative to the existing expensive medications; (iii) a side-effect-free natural product-based drug; and (iv) a way to cure, not just treat, allergic rhinitis.


From Research findings to Therapeutic opportunity:

This study suggests, for the first time, a natural product based therapy for Allergic Rhinitis. Linalool, by increasing the expression of its target genes, it may: (1) inhibit GM-CSF levels; (2) decrease IL13Rα1 expression; (3) suppress eotaxin expression; and (4) inhibit mucus production (fig1).

Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Linalool or its analogues either alone or in combination with other drugs” may be used to control allergic rhinitis.
