Role of interleukin-13 in eosinophil accumulation and airway remodelling in a mouse model of chronic asthma.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Interleukin-13 is believed to be important in asthmatic inflammation and airway hyper-reactivity. OBJECTIVE To investigate the role of IL-13 in chronic asthma, using an improved experimental model of asthma that reproduces most of the morphological features of the human disease. METHODS BALB/c mice or gene-targeted mice deficient in their… (More)
