Allergic asthma is characterized by airway hyperresponsiveness, eosinophilia, and mucus accumulation and is associated with increased IgE concentrations. We demonstrate here that peroxisome proliferator–activated receptors (PPARs), PPAR-␣ and PPAR-␥ , which have been shown recently to be involved in the regulation of various cell types within the immune(More)
Human eosinophils produce a large number of cytokines, including immunoregulatory cytokines. Given that eosinophils store and release interleukin (IL)-4, a key cytokine in the pathogenesis of allergic inflammation, and that IL-4 and IL-13 share common biological functions, we investigated the possibility that IL-13 may be synthesized by these cells.
