Aliases:This biomarker is also known as:
- C-C motif chemokine 11,

- small inducible cytokine A11,
- chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 11,
Cytokines are a family of secreted proteins involved in immunoregulatory and inflammatory processes. The CC cytokines are proteins characterized by two adjacent cysteines. CCL11, also known as eotaxin, displays chemotactic activity for eosinophils, but not mononuclear cells or neutrophils. This eosinophil specific chemokine assumed to be involved in eosinophilic inflammatory diseases such as atopic dermatitis, allergic rhinitis, asthma and parasitic infections.
