- IL-4-independent induction of airway hyperresponsiveness by Th2, but not Th1, cellsL Cohn
Section of Immunobiology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT 06520 8011, USA
J Immunol 161:3813-6. 1998..Thus, IL-4 production by Th2 cells is not essential for the induction of AHR, but is critical for the migration of eosinophils from lung tissue into the airways...
- T helper 1 cells and interferon gamma regulate allergic airway inflammation and mucus productionL Cohn
Section of Pulmonary Medicine, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut 06520, USA
J Exp Med 190:1309-18. 1999..The blockade of eosinophilia and mucus production by IFN-gamma likely occurs through different inhibitory pathways that are activated downstream of Th2 cytokine secretion and require IFN-gamma signaling in tissue of recipient mice...
- T-helper type 2 cell-directed therapy for asthmaL Cohn
Section of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, Yale University School of Medicine, 333 Cedar Street, PO Box 208057, 06520 8057, New Haven, CT, USA
Pharmacol Ther 88:187-96. 2000..Furthermore, we explore newer immunomodulatory strategies to inhibit Th2 cell effects, including therapies that may block Th2 cell differentiation, neutralize cytokines, and redirect immune responses towards Th1 and away from Th2...
- IL-4 promotes airway eosinophilia by suppressing IFN-gamma production: defining a novel role for IFN-gamma in the regulation of allergic airway inflammationL Cohn
Sections of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine and Immunobiology, Department of Dermatology and Department of Pathology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT 06520, USA
J Immunol 166:2760-7. 2001..We define a new regulatory role for IFN-gamma, demonstrating that eosinophilic inflammation is differentially regulated at distinct sites within the respiratory tract...
- Asthma: mechanisms of disease persistence and progressionLauren Cohn
Yale University School of Medicine, Section of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut, USA
Annu Rev Immunol 22:789-815. 2004..We review human and animal data detailing the cellular and molecular interactions in established allergic asthma that promote persistent disease, amplify inflammation, and, in turn, cause disease progression...
- Mucus in chronic airway diseases: sorting out the sticky detailsLauren Cohn
Section of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut 06520 8057, USA
J Clin Invest 116:306-8. 2006..This begs the question, Is it possible to reduce airway obstruction in chronic lung disease by inhibiting EGFR activation and/or by inhibiting IL-13?..
- Advances in mucous cell metaplasia: a plug for mucus as a therapeutic focus in chronic airway diseaseDavid R Curran
Section of Pulmonary and Critical Care, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT 06520, USA
Am J Respir Cell Mol Biol 42:268-75. 2010..We now have a greater incentive to focus on inhibition of mucus as a therapy for chronic airway diseases...
