In this second part of the review on the pathogenesis of asthma the hormonal factors and adverse external events are shortly reviewed which skew the balance of Th1 vs. Th2 CD4+ lymphocytes towards the latter ones and this way increase the probability of atopic diseases. Among other the role of transplacental priming, insulin, insulin-like and other growth factors, lack of the usual microbial infections in the early childhood (the so-called hygiene hypothesis), gender, diminished testosterone production, gastroesophageal reflux, adverse effects during pregnancy are discussed. A separate chapter deals with the role of central nervous system in the etiology and finally the most common allergizing and airway tissue damaging agents are listed in tabulated form.
