Innate Cytokines and the Regulation of Allergy
Tuesday, March 4, 2014: 10:45 AM-12:00 PM
Convention Center, Mezzanine Level, Room 14AB
1.25 CME/ 1.50 CE
Zoulfia Allakhverdi , PhD FAAAAI
Learning Objectives:
  1. Identify the key cytokines secreted by lung epithelial cells in response to infections and the role of these cytokines in priming of the allergic condition
  2. Describe the role of type I and III interferons in the suppression of Th2 and Th17 responses and the inhibition of interferon secretion by allergic stimulation through the high affinity IgE Fc receptor
  3. Discuss how TLR ligands, such as CpG oligonucleotides, are being used to mediate allergic suppression through the induction of cross-regulatory cytokines
