ALLERGY AND ASTHMA: New axis of evil in asthma

Asthma is an extremely common inflammatory disease of the airways. Research performed in mice, by Stephen Galli, Mang Yu, and colleagues, at Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, has now identified a new aspect to the immune response underlying this condition. If the results hold true in humans, these data suggest a new therapeutic target.

An allergic asthma attack occurs when the immune system mistakenly identifies a harmless substance, such as cat dander, as a dangerous invader. The immune response associated with allergic asthma is classified as a Th2 response. However, recent data have suggested that this might be too simplistic a classification, as they have implicated the Th1 cellassociated soluble factor IFN-gamma as having a role. Galli, Yu, and colleagues confirmed that IFN-gamma has a role in a mouse model of chronic asthma that exhibits many features of severe asthma in humans. They also identified what it does: it triggers the activation of immune cells known as mast cells, which are critical for the develop
