Working wth the well known models of cutaneous immune hypersentitivty and immunity, Dr Askenase discovered the series of steps from challenge with antigen, in a sensitized host, to the entry of T cells into the site of challenge. This work uncovered a previously unrecognized roles of: B-1a B cells, NKT cells, IL-4, complement, serotonin and mast cells.These findings are relevant to the diagnosis and therapy of allergic and autoimmune diseases, as well as cancers and transplantation.
Curent work in the Askenase lab centers on the ver exciting newly discoverded exosomes that are nanoparticles released by all clls sending RNA fuctional lmssage to eachother. We work on these is models of allergy,mutiple sclerosis, neurodegenerative diseases and stem cell thrapies.
