Here we show that the frequency of T(H)17 cells (CD3(+)CD4(+)CD161(+)CCR6(+) lymphocytes) is increased in peripheral blood of children with allergic asthma. Moreover, we found a significant relationship between the frequency of T(H)17 cells and level of asthma control, with reduced asthma control correlated with a higher proportion of T(H)17 cells.
