Although current pharmacopoeia is effective in alleviating asthma symptomatology, it is equally unable to modify the fundamental immunological basis of the allergic diathesis. The explosion in knowledge of the immunobiology of cytokines that has occurred in the last decade has remarkably clarified our understanding of the pathogenesis of allergic asthma, and has unleashed a plethora of compelling opportunities. In the first part of this review, we will summarize current knowledge on the… CONTINUE READING
