Mechanism and Inhibition of Airway Inflammation in Asthma

"Activation of allergen-specific T helper 2 (Th2) cells and ILC2 cells leads to production of IL-13, IL-5, and IL-4. IL-4 promotes B cell synthesis of IgE. IL-5 is responsible for activation of eosinophils in the tissue. IL-13 induces airway hyperresponsiveness, remodeling of airway smooth muscle, and mucus hypersecretion. An anti-IL-4/IL-13 receptor monoclonal antibody inhibits IL-4 and IL-13 mediated pathways. Therapeutic monoclonal antibodies directed against IL-5 and the IL-5 receptor block eosinophilic inflammation. An anti-IgE monoclonal antibody binds to IgE and prevents downstream cytokine production. "
