Interleukin (IL)-13 has been associated with asthma, allergic rhinitis, and chronic sinusitis, all conditions where an imbalance in epithelial fluid secretion and absorption could impact upon the disease. We have investigated the effects of IL-13 on the ion transport characteristics of human bronchial epithelial cells cultured at an apical-air interface… CONTINUE READING
