Allergic asthma is a chronic inflammatory lung disease driven by multiple types of immune cells by producing a wide array of cytokines, chemokines, and mediators. Identification and quantification of these immunopathological mediators would help us to have a better understanding of the pathogenesis of asthma and to discover novel therapeutic targets. This talk will focus on the application of multiplex assay to simultaneously analyze over 20 different cytokines, chemokines and mediators in one single mouse lung sample using the Merck-Millipore Th17 Panel Bead-Based Multiplex Assay Kit. The pros and cons of using multiplex assay kit versus single ELISA assay kit also be discussed.
