    INTERLEUKIN-10 (IL-10) is a cytokine derived from CD[sub 4][sup +] T-helper type 2 (T[sub H2]) cells identified as a suppressor of cytokines from T-helper type 1(T[sub H1]) cells. Interleukin-12 (IL-12) is produced by B cells, macrophages and dendritic cells, and primarily regulates T[sub H1]...

    Background: Rhinoviruses (RVs) ore the most frequent precipitants of the common cold and asthma exacerbations, but little is known about the immune response to these viruses and its potential implications in the pathogenesis of asthma. Methods: Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from...

    Background: An imbalance of T cell subsets in asthma with a predominance of Th2 type cells has been proposed. The aim of this study was simultaneously to detect surface markers and intracellular production of cytokines in T cells from the airways of children with and without asthma. Methods:...

    Background: There is a strong epidemiological link between smoking and tuberculosis (TB), but the association is confounded by socioeconomic and other factors. A direct relationship between cigarette smoke and poor treatment-related outcomes in patients with TB is therefore questionable. We...

    Background: Asthma is a common respiratory disease that is characterized by bronchial hyperresponsiveness and airway obstruction due to chronic airway inflammation. Atopic asthma is a typical IgE-mediated disease in which the enhanced production of IgE is driven by the activation of Th2 cells,...

    Deficient type I interferon-β and type III interferon-λ induction by rhinoviruses has previously been reported in mild/moderate atopic asthmatic adults. No studies have yet investigated if this occurs in severe therapy resistant asthma (STRA). Here, we show that compared with non-allergic...
