    The peripheral terminals of these afferent nerves are exquisitely sensitive to a variety of chemical and mechanical stimuli. If stimulated with sufficient intensity, these nerve endings will generate bursts of action potentials coincident with local tachykinin release. Subsequent to conduction of the action potentials to the central nervous system (CNS) and release of tachykinins and other transmitters in the CNS, these nerves initiate a variety of defensive reflexes. The lung and virtually all visceral organs (including the esophagus) in humans and animals are innervated by tachykinin-containing afferent nerves (84,92–95).

    Clinical studies of the association between asthma and GERD have not always distinguished between allergic (atopic or ‘‘extrinsic’’) and nonallergic (nonatopic or ‘‘intrinsic’’) asthma (68–71). Several authors have implied, however, that asthma precipitated by GERD may be more prevalent in patients with no history of atopy (8,12,13). Interestingly, recent studies indicate that chronic airway inflammation in atopic and nonatopic asthmatics does not differ to any great extent (72–76). , allergen) origin, the resulting pathology is similar.
