SESSION TITLE: Asthma III
SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PURPOSE: Type 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2) play important role in the pathogenesis of asthma because of producing large amounts of Th2-type cytokines. The mechanisms of ILC2 chemotaxis into lungs, however, are still unclear. We aimed to compare dynamic accumulation of ILC2 into various organs and tissues in IL-25- and IL-33-induced murine models of asthma and to explore the potential mechanisms of ILC2 chemotaxis.
