Asthma has been defined as a disease of chronic airway inflammation in which many cells and cellular products participate with variable degrees of airflow obstruction and hyperresponsiveness that lead to recurrent episodes of wheezing, breathlessness, chest tightness, and coughing. Prominent among these cellular elements are two cell types referred to as the invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cells and a subpopulation of T cells expressing the molecule CD161, which are both thought to play a… Expand
iNKT cells are increased in children with severe therapy-resistant asthma.
TLDR
The data suggests that iNKT cells play a role in paediatric asthma, which is also associated with the severity of disease, but independent of the atopic status. Expand
Role of CD1d- and MR1-Restricted T Cells in Asthma
TLDR
The detrimental and beneficial roles of iNKT cells in animal models of asthma and in human asthmatic patients are described and the mechanisms through which iN KT cells are activated by environmental or extracellular factors are addressed. Expand
Increased Th2-like Invariant Natural Killer T cells in Peripheral Blood From Patients With Asthma
TLDR
Blood iNKT cells are thought to be Th2-like, and IL-4-producing iN KT cells may be associated with lung function in human asthma. Expand
Development of Asthma in Inner-City Children: Possible Roles of MAIT Cells and Variation in the Home Environment
TLDR
MAIT cell frequency at 1 y may reflect the tendency of the immune system toward Th1 responses and is associated with protection from asthma, and iNKT cell antigenic activity may be a marker of houses with increased microbial exposures and therefore also withprotection from asthma. Expand
Immunologic mechanisms in asthma.
TLDR
The immunologic mechanism of heterogenous asthma phenotypes is focused on, which contains heterogeneous group of endoypes and phenotypes, such as exercise-induced asthma, obesity induced asthma, etc. Expand
Cellular and molecular mechanisms of allergic asthma.
TLDR
The mechanisms responsible for the orchestration of type 2 inflammation are outlined and the novel findings, including but not limited to dysregulated epithelial barrier integrity, alarmin release and innate lymphoid cell stimulation are summarized. Expand
Natural killer T Cells: A Powerful Via in the Regulation of Non Communicable Chronic Diseases
TLDR
The Natural Killer T cells constitute a population of T lymphocytes that co-express an antigen receptor (TCR) and a marker of natural killer cells (NK1.1) that have a fundamental participation in the initial stages of the immune response to many pathogens and tumours. Expand
New perspectives in bronchial asthma: pathological, immunological alterations, biological targets, and pharmacotherapy
TLDR
Various types of asthma, etiological factors, and in vivo animal models for the induction of asthma are enumerated and the underlying pathological, immunological mechanism of action, the role of inflammatory mediators, the effect of inflammation on the bronchial airways, newer treatment approaches, and novel biological targets of asthma have been discussed.

Stability of regulatory T cells in T helper 2–biased allergic airway diseases
TLDR
The recent progress in the identification and plasticity of tTreg and pTreg cells in Th2–biased airway diseases is reviewed and the factors affecting the stability and function of Treg cells are summarized. Expand
Current and future biomarkers in allergic asthma
TLDR
This article systematically reviews and categorizes genes and collects current evidence that may promote these biomarkers to become part of allergic rhinitis or allergic asthma classifiers with high prognostic value. Expand

Natural killer T cells are not the predominant T cell in asthma and likely modulate, not cause, asthma.
TLDR
It is believed that although CD1d-restricted NKT cells might play a role in modulating the asthmatic phenotype, they are not the critical drivers of theAsthma response, a role which is still held by conventional MHC class II-restricted CD4(+) T cells. Expand
Natural killer T cells and the regulation of asthma
TLDR
The importance of iNKT cells in both allergic and non-allergic forms of asthma, which are independent of adaptive immunity and associated with airway neutrophils, may explain situations previously found to be incompatible with the Th2 paradigm of asthma. Expand
Inverse association of peripheral blood CD4(+) invariant natural killer T cells with atopy in human asthma.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that blood CD4(+) iNKT cells might behave like T(h)1-like iN KT cells in human asthma and be inversely associated with atopic indexes in asthmatic individuals. Expand
Circulating Natural Killer T Cells in Patients with Asthma
TLDR
The results suggest that the number of circulating NKT cells was already decreased in patients with asthma, suggesting that therapies targeted at depletion or limiting of natural killer T cells may be a possible strategy for the treatment of asthma. Expand
The Role of Natural Killer T Cells in the Pathogenesis of Acute Exacerbation of Human Asthma
TLDR
Blood N KT cells decreased during infection-associated asthma exacerbation and were inversely associated with eosinophilic airway inflammation, suggesting that blood NKT cells might be mobilized to the airways and lungs during asthma exacerbations in humans. Expand
Invariant natural killer T cells in asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
TLDR
Investigating the frequency of invariant natural killer T cells in the airways of subjects with mild or moderately severe asthma and whether an increased number of these cells is a feature of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) found them in low numbers. Expand

TLDR
Current understanding of the pathophysiological roles of iN KT cells in asthma is overviewed and possible therapeutic approaches to bronchial asthma employing glycolipid ligands for iNKT cells are discussed. Expand

TLDR
Therapeutic strategies aimed at T(H)2 cytokines are beginning to bear fruit in patients with asthma, although like many biologic agents, these might need specific targeting at subgroups of patients. Expand
iNKT cells in allergic disease.
TLDR
In mouse models of asthma, NKT cell-deficient strains fail to develop allergen-induced airway hyperreactivity (AHR) and NKT cells are found in the lungs of patients with chronic asthma, suggesting a critical role for N KT cells in the development of AHR. Expand
Peripheral Blood CD161+ T Cells from Asthmatic Patients are Activated During Asthma Attack and Predominantly Produce IFN‐γ
TLDR
Blood samples from asthma attack patients and stable asthma patients are analysed to hypothesize that during an asthma attack, IFN‐γ produced by CD161+ T cells could help to reestablish the Th1/Th2 equilibrium and may contribute to the understanding of the immune mechanisms involved in asthma attacks.
