Background: Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma translocation protein 1 (MALT1) participates in the immune-related allergic response and inflammation flare, while its clinical role in asthma children is still unknown. Herein, this study aimed to investigate MALT1 expression, and its correlation with exacerbation risk, T helper (Th)1, Th2 cells (and their secreted cytokines), as well as inflammatory cytokines in asthma children.
Methods: Sixty children with asthma exacerbation and 60 children with remission asthma were enrolled in this study; then their blood MALT1, Th1, Th2 cells, tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), interleukin-6 (IL-6), interferon-gamma (IFN-γ), and interleukin-4 (IL-4) were detected. Read More
