- Activation of eosinophils with cytokines produced by lung mast cellsY Okayama
First Department of Internal Medicine, Gunma University, School of Medicine, Maebashi, Japan
Int Arch Allergy Immunol 114:75-7. 1997..6 pg (158.7-3,652) of GM-CSF and 735 pg (< 10-2,750) of IL-5 24 h after activation with SCF and anti-IgE. These findings indicate that the human mast cells may contribute to the chronicity of tissue inflammation...

First Department of Internal Medicine, Maebashi, Japan
Int Arch Allergy Immunol 117:48-51. 1998..These findings demonstrate the capacity of human skin mast cells to transcribe IL-4, IL-5 and TNF-alpha by immunological activation and to transcribe and release TNF-alpha by substance P...
- Human lung mast cells are enriched in the capacity to produce granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor in response to IgE-dependent stimulationY Okayama
The First Department of Internal Medicine, Gunma University Faculty of Medicine, School of Medicine, Maebashi, Japan
Eur J Immunol 28:708-15. 1998..These findings indicate that human mast cells are an important cellular source of GM-CSF and as such may contribute to chronic eosinophil-mediated inflammation...
