SESSION TITLE: Asthma III

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Saturday, April 16, 2016 at 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM

PURPOSE: A newly-discovered type 2 innate lymphoid cell (ILC2), which acted as an early source of Th2 cytokines such as IL-5/IL-13 has been found involved in the pathogenesis of asthma in mice model. However, the potential roles of ILC2 in human asthma are still largely unknown. In this study, we will investigate the correlation between pathological ILC2s and asthma clinical characteristics. Cytokine profiles of ILC2 in response to stimulators released by epithelial cell will also be determined.
