Type 2 inflammation in asthma can result in increased exacerbations and decreased lung function3

Type 2 inflammation in asthma can result in increased exacerbations and decreased lung function 3 

IL-4 and IL-13 increase expression of the
high-affinity IgE receptor FcεRI, which
results in increased IgE/anti-IgE mediated
histamine reléase 7

IL4 y IL3 son citoquinas Tipo 2 con roles distintos y superpuestos 3

ILC2, type 2 innate lymphoid cells; TSLP, thymic stromal lymphopoietin.
