Research & Publications
Working with the well-known models of cutaneous immune hypersensitivity 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 role 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.
