Research output: Contribution to journalAbstract


Asthma is a complex obstructive airway disease characterised by airway hyper-reactivity to innocuous allergens. It may be categorised as either classical eosinophilic, T helper 2 type of disease or as one driven by neutrophils that may be associated with T helper 17 cells and that is corticosteroid resistant. While the pathogenesis of the disease is not fully understood, there is increasing evidence
for the role of environmentally-derived pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) including fungal b-(1,3)-glucans and bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in inducing and exacerbating airway inflammation
