Abstract

Mainly located in the skin or mucosa of patients with allergic diseases, eosinophils contribute directly to tissue damage and chronic inflammation. The past year has seen significant advances in the study of the factors involved in the specific tissue recruitment of eosinophils, including chemoattractants and their receptors. New data have been obtained on the synthesis by eosinophils of various cytokines mostly released by immune complexes.
