Title
A role for eosinophils in transplant rejection
Author
Abstract
Eosinophils release inflammatory mediators and cationic proteins that are instrumental in the pathogenesis of allergic diseases such as bronchial asthma. Here, we review experimental observations indicating that eosinophils are also involved in the rejection of a allografts. We pro pose that their role as effectors of transplant damage becomes crucial when classical pathways of rejection are inhibited and T helper 2 (Th2) cells dominate the alloimmune response.
