Immune Mechanisms
Sunday, March 4, 2018: 10:45 AM-12:00 PM
Convention Center, South Concourse, Level 3, S310AB
1.25 CME/CE
Primary Moderators:
Mubeccel Akdis, MD PhD
Alkis Togias, MD FAAAAI

Learning Objectives:
  1. Describe the mechanisms by which the major airway mucins MUC5AC and MUC5B are organized within the mucus gel and how this gel contributes to airway obstruction in asthma
  2. Describe the endogenous pathway that normally curtails the development of Th2 immunity at the squamous mucosa mediated by the serine protease inhibitor SPINK7, whose loss of function is involved in unleashing marked Th2 related responses
  3. Describe the role of surfactant protein A in regulating allergic airway disease
