The Role of Th17 cells in the pathogenesis of asthma and immunotherapy is being a new concept and paradigm. [] Key Method A total of 31 children with mild asthma were evaluated and then randomized to receive immunotherapy or immunotherapy plus Nigella sativa or immunotherapy plus probiotic or immunotherapy plus Nigella sativa plus probiotic openly for 14 weeks. Statistical analysis found no significant difference in the mean number of Th17 cells pre and post test in all four treatment groups, however we…
