Nucala is the first and only approved biologic therapy that targets interleukin-5 (IL-5), which plays an important role in regulating the function of eosinophils
, an inflammatory cell known to be important in asthma.
The vascular proliferation is invested by a rich inflammatory infiltrate, including lymphocytes, mast cells, and eosinophils
, the latter varying in density within and between lesions (figures 1 and 2).
Our findings suggest that a sensitive screening strategy for urogenital schistosomiasis consists of a patient's travel history (exposure in multiple years), clinical history (any new genitourinary complaints after freshwater exposure), eosinophil
count, and serologic testing.

Liver biopsy revealed eosinophilic microabscesses and Charcot-Leyden crystals formed by the breakdown of eosinophils
HES is a rare hematological disorder, and its diagnosis is set when patients have persistently elevated eosinophil

Sixty-nine percent of the white cells were identified as eosinophils
