    Interleukin (IL)-16 serves as a natural ligand of CD4 molecules and induces chemotaxis in CD4-expressing cells such as T cells, eosinophils, dendritic cells and monocytes. We examined the serum levels of IL-16 in patients with adult atopic dermatitis when their eruptions were aggravated and in...

    In this article, the author discusses omalizumab, a recombinant humanised monoclonal antibody, which is clinically effective in patients with non-atopic (intrinsic) asthma, and mentions possibility of also using omalizumab in atopic (extrinsic) asthma patients. It mentions that immunoglobulin E...

    The pathogenesis of nasal polyps has been debated for many years. The lymphocytes that infiltrate nasal polyps have been identified as predominantly memory T cells in an activated state, and these cells produce a mixed cytokine pattern of T1 helper (Thl) and T2 helper (Th2) cells. We conducted a...

  • Serum interleukin-5 levels are elevated in mild and moderate persistent asthma irrespective of regular inhaled glucocorticoid therapy. Joseph, Jose; Benedict, Sheela; Safa, Wassef; Joseph, Maries // BMC Pulmonary Medicine;2004, Vol. 4, p2 

    Background: Interleukin-5 (IL-5) is thought to play a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of asthma. High levels of circulating IL-5 have been documented in acute asthma. However, serum IL-5 levels in mild to moderate asthmatics and the influence of regular use of inhaled glucocorticoids, is not...

    Background: Interleukin-13 is thought to play a key role in modulating airway inflammation in asthma. Elevated levels of serum interleukin-13 (IL-13) have been documented in acute severe asthma. However, there are no reports of serum IL-13 levels in mild and moderate asthmatics who form the...

    As previous study showed that Mycoplasma pneumoniae (MP) induced a cellular immune response associated with interleukin-17 (IL-17), we designed this study to explore IL-17 in MP pneumonia patients with atopic sensitization and 144 patients were evaluated and divided into three groups: atopic MP...

    Asthma and atopy have a complex background that may result from the interaction of genes and the environment. Interleukin (IL)-10 is known to play various roles in immune-regulating and anti-inflammatory responses. The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible effect of the IL-10 promoter...

    To date cytokines profile in AEDS is poorly described in children. We evaluated the interleukin (IL)-17, IL-23, and IL-10 levels in atopic eczema/dermatitis syndrome (AEDS) children and healthy controls, in atopic AEDS (aAEDS) and nonatopic (naAEDS) subtypes and their relationship with disease...

    Summary Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that affects 10–20% of the population. Linkage of atopy, asthma, allergic rhinitis, and total serum IgE levels to several different chromosomal regions have been described extensively, but little is known about the genetic...

    Objective: This study evaluated the effects of ebastine on serum eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) levels in patients with bronchial asthma. Patients: Twenty patients with bronchial asthma (11 patients with atopic disease and nine with non-atopic disease) were enrolled in the study. Methods: In...
