Inflammatory cell recruitment is a hallmark phenomenon of all inflammatory diseases, including allergic asthma. In allergy and asthma, recruitment of inflammatory cells such as T cells, dendritic cells, mast cells, eosinophils and neutrophils, is mediated via a number of chemokines and their receptors. Not only are chemokines involved in recruitment of these cells, they also play a role in activation and differentiation of inflammatory cells, among others, by selectively activating Th1 or Th2… CONTINUE READING
