These results demonstrate that acute AD is associated with a high expression of IL-4Ralpha, whereas IL-5Ralpha and GM-CSFRalpha mRNA are predominantly increased in chronic AD and to lesser extent in acute lesions. These findings support the biphasic role of IL-4, IL-5, and GM-CSF in the pathophysiology of AD.
