The second article, entitled, "Interleukin-9 Enhances IL5 Receptor Expression, Differentiation, and Survival of Human Eosinophils," was published in the September 15, 2000 issue of Blood.
The importance of these novel published findings is the link identified between IL9 and the downstream IL5 mediated eosinophilic inflammation in asthma.
These studies showed that IL9 synergizes with the eosinophil growth factor IL5 to enhance eosinophil differentiation and maturation, while in vivo studies showed that anti-IL9 treatment significantly suppressed antigen induced airway eosinophilia, in comparison to control mice.
