BACKGROUND Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS) is a rare, systemic, necrotizing vasculitis that develops in some asthma patients. We previously reported that maintenance of the proportion of type 1 regulatory T (Tr1) cells in patients with chronic eosinophilic pneumonia and asthma might inhibit the development of CSS through the action of cytokines, such as interleukin (IL)-10 and IL-2, produced by Tr1 and responder T cells. We also reported that IL-17-producing CD4+ helper T cells (Th17 cells) are… CONTINUE READING
