TSLP in Severe Asthma – Understanding the Science
A look at the essential role of the epithelium and epithelial cytokines in health and disease
The airway epithelium is a common source of inflammation and a central factor in asthma pathology [1,2]. It is the first point of contact for viruses, allergens, pollutants, bacteria, physical injury and other external stimuli [1,2,3].
Thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP), a key epithelial cytokine at the top end of the inflammatory cascade, offers a new way to think about severe asthma [1,2,3].
In this video, respiratory expert Dr Jonathan Corren discusses the essential role that the epithelium and TSLP play in severe asthma.
