Siegel Lab Identifies TL1A As a Novel Cytokine that Contributes to IL-9-mediated Allergic Disease

New research from the Autoimmunity Branch reveals that TL1A-DR3 interactions contribute to the production of IL-9-secreting T cells and development of allergic lung inflammation. This study identifies the therapeutic potential of targeting TL1A for the treatment of IL-9-mediated allergic diseases. The image shows mucus in the airway (top right) and TL1A around the blood vessels (bottom right) of inflamed lung compared to healthy lung (left).
