Abstract

Studies of the initiation and maintenance of asthma and allergic inflammation implicate dysregulated interactions between mucosal epithelia and innate immune cells as the underlying cause of these disorders. The similarities of these responses with mucosal responses to parasitic intestinal worms may reveal pathways relevant to the perplexing rise of these chronic inflammatory disorders.
