The role of epithelial cytokines in asthma.
Overlapping and changing inflammatory pathways in response to an exacerbation, trigger, or treatment change highlight the complexity of severe asthma.1–4
The airway epithelium is the first point of contact for environmental triggers and initiates inflammation and structural changes that contribute to asthma.1–3
Epithelial cytokines (eg, TSLP) are released in response to triggers, initiating a cascade of immune responses that drive clinical features of asthma.1–4
In addition to his clinical practice and teaching, Professor Boulet’s research aims to establish links between basic research and clinical science in the field of asthma and respiratory allergy.
