Abstract

Allergic asthma is characterised by the presence of circulating specific immunoglobulin E (IgE) or a positive skin prick test (SPT) to a common aeroallergen. Type-2 inflammatory (T2) cytokines stimulate IgE synthesis in response to aeroallergen, resulting in chronic eosinophilic airway mucosal inflammation.
