Both CD80 and CD86 co-stimulatory molecules regulate allergic pulmonary inflammation.


We examined the roles of CD80 (B7-1) and CD86 (B7-2) in a model of allergic pulmonary inflammation and airway hyper-responsiveness (AHR) by selectively inhibiting either CD80 or CD86. Inhibition of co-stimulation by either CD80 or CD86 affected multiple parameters of the allergic response. Specifically, blockade of either CD80 or CD86 in ovalbumin… (More)
