Question special

I am excited to be a part of the discussion about Mepolizumab for Eosinophilic Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Thanks to the authors of this interesting publication and to our experts for joining us!

It feels like the eosinophil is really in the limelight these days. I wanted to start off with asking, by what mechanisms do eosinophils contribute to airway inflammation in COPD and is their role in COPD different from other airways diseases such as asthma?
