T lymphocytes negatively regulate lymph node lymphatic vessel formation.
Lymph node lymphatic vessels (LNLVs) serve as a conduit to drain antigens from peripheral tissues to within the lymph nodes. LNLV density is known to be positively regulated by vascular endothelial… Expand
A Protease-Activated Pathway Underlying Th Cell Type 2 Activation and Allergic Lung Disease1

RATIONALE Eosinophilic pleural effusion (EPE) is characterized by greater than 10% eosinophilia and is frequently associated with air and/or blood in the pleural cavity. Primary spontaneous… Expand
Differential requirement for CD18 in T-helper effector homing
To understand the integrin requirements of T-helper (TH) effector subsets, we investigated the contribution of CD18 (β2 integrin) to TH1 and TH2 function in vitro and in relevant disease models.… Expand
TH2 cells and their cytokines regulate formation and function of lymphatic vessels.
Lymphatic vessels (LVs) are critical for immune surveillance and involved in the pathogenesis of diverse diseases. LV density is increased during inflammation; however, little is known about how the… Expand
Homing alone? CD18 in infectious and allergic disease.
CD18 (integrin β2) is an adhesion molecule that is crucial for host defense, but a comprehensive understanding of CD18 in immunity has been elusive. Studies now show that, through the control of… Expand
Natural killer cells regulate eosinophilic inflammation in chronic rhinosinusitis
Eosinophils play a major pathologic role in the pathogenesis of diverse inflammatory diseases including chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Dysregulated production of prostaglandin (PG), particularly PGD2,… Expand
Prediction of drug-induced immune-mediated hepatotoxicity using hepatocyte-like cells derived from human embryonic stem cells.
Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) is a leading cause of liver disease and a key safety factor during drug development. In addition to the initiation events of drug-specific hepatotoxicity,… Expand
