Abstract

This review covers the role of eosinophils in asthma-associated tissue remodeling and angiogenesis focusing on angiogenesis which is a recently discovered feature of asthma. In addition, novel directions for eosinophil-targeted/angiogenesis-targeted pharmacological intervention are discussed as new approaches in the treatment of asthma.
