Cytokine expression in the presence or absence of late airway responses after antigen challenge of sensitized rats.

Abstract

To assess whether Th-2 cytokines are involved in the late airway response (LR) after antigen challenge, we evaluated cytokine mRNA expression in the lungs of two strains of rats before and 8 h after saline or antigen challenge: Brown Norway (BN) rats, high IgE producers that develop LR after antigen challenge and Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats, low IgE producers… (More)
