Decreased regulatory B cells in pediatric patients with asthma

This study found that regulatory B cells were reduced in children with asthma. This is important because regulatory B cells play a critical anti-inflammatory role in the body, and understanding this imbalance in the immune system will lead to improvements in treatments for asthma for both children and adults. Senior author Adora Lin was funded by the American Lung Association Allergic Respiratory Diseases award for her work in understanding the role of B cells in allergic asthma.
