The proeosinophilic effects of IL-5 include 1) enhanced replication and differentiation of eosinophilic myelocytes; 2) enhanced degranulation of eosinophils; 3) prolonged survival time of eosinophils; and 4) enhanced adhesion of eosinophils. The effects of IL-5 are mediated via the interaction of IL-5 with receptors (Il-5R) expresse…
