Alleviating Symptoms of Th2-Like Cytokine Mediated Disorders by Reducing IL-13 Receptor-Expressing Cells in the Respiratory Tract
This invention relates to the alleviation of symptoms of Th2-like cytokine mediated disorders, such as allergy, asthma, and to hyperinflammatory responses in the respiratory tract to infectious diseases and parasitic infections, including tuberculosis, schistosomiasis, leishmania, and filariasis.
This invention claims a variety of methods and uses of a chimeric molecule comprising a toxic moiety and a targeting moiety that specifically binds to a cell surface receptor for IL-13, to alleviate symptoms of a variety of respiratory disorders. This method has been proven successful in various mouse models in vivo.
