Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS) is a Th2-mediated systemic vasculitis characterized by eosinophilic infiltration, blood eosinophilia, and high IgE levels. CCL17/thymus and activation-regulated chemokine (TARC) is a chemokine responsible for the recruitment of Th2 cells. This study was undertaken to explore a possible role of CCL17/TARC in CSS.
