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)
FcepsilonRI expressed by human eosinophils is involved in IgE-mediated cytotoxicity reactions toward the parasite Schistosoma mansoni in vitro. However, because receptor expression is low on these cells, its functional role is still controversial. In this study, we have measured surface and intracellular expression of FcepsilonRI by blood eosinophils from(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.
