  • Background:  Asthma is a complex disorder, which is known to be affected by interactions between genetic and environmental factors. The human Eotaxin 1 and CCR3 attract eosinophils and Th2‐lymphocytes to migrate to the inflammatory foci that could represent a key mechanism in allergy and asthma.
