Increased expression of IL-16 immunoreactivity in bronchial mucosa after segmental allergen challenge in patients with asthma.

Abstract

BACKGROUND We have previously shown increased expression of the CD4(+) cell chemoattractant IL-16 in bronchial mucosa of patients with asthma. We investigated the effects of allergen challenge on airway IL-16 expression. METHODS We investigated the expression of IL-16 immunoreactivity in bronchial biopsy samples obtained from atopic asthmatic subjects (n… (More)
