Type 2 inflammation is an immune response pattern to certain environmental triggers. It can be associated with the onset of several chronic conditions:

  • Moderate-to-severe asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are conditions that affect the respiratory system
  • Nasal polyps is a condition that affects the sinuses
  • Moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (eczema), bullous pemphigoid, chronic spontaneous urticaria (hives), and prurigo nodularis are conditions that affect the skin
  • Eosinophilic esophagitis is a condition that affects the digestive system
