PURPOSE: IL-27 is a family member of Th1 type cytokines, which could promote Th1 development and inhibit Th2 and Th17 development as well. Asthma is Th2-prone chronic airway inflammation. In this study, animal models were set up to observe whether IL-27 intervention could diminish allergic airway inflammation and to investigate the related molecular mechanisms.
