  • Bidirectional roles of IL-22 in the pathogenesis of allergic airway inflammation

    Ito Takashi , Hirose Koichi , Nakajima Hiroshi

    … Although these pathognomonic features are mainly mediated by antigen-specific Th2 cells and their cytokines, such as IL-4, IL-5, and IL-13, recent studies have revealed that other inflammatory cells, including Th17 cells and innate lymphoid cells (ILCs), also play a critical role in the pathogenesis of asthma. …
